5.0 out of 5 stars A grower, 3 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Further (Audio CD)
It's happened a few times where i get a new chemical brothers album, and initially am dissapointed, thinking that they've lost it, only for it grow on me, and to turn into another of my favourite albums. Give it a few listens and you've got another classic chemies album. still the best at what they do, in my opinion. 5 out of 5!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very moving film, 20 Sept. 2010
This review is from: John Q [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
Another cracking Denzel Washington film. Well crafted, very moving. I thought that Denzel put in a great performance and so did the kid. A film that really makes you appreciate how luck to have national health. A film that highlights how much of a bastard insurance companies can be. Maybe there were a few moments that were a bit cheesy, that might mean it should just get a 4, but having just watched it i'm caught up in the emotion of it and am giving it a 5!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best War Movie Made for years..., 19 Sept. 2010
I thought this film was filmed amazingly, had a serious and good plot and was generally a fantastic and powerful film. It doesn't have the usual Hollywood crap (well, maybe at the end), and i think it is just generally better made than most other war films out there at the moment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Well written, but the philosophies of a cold-hearted bitch, 8 Jun. 2010
This review is from: The Fountainhead (Paperback)
For the first 200 pages, I loved this book. It's well written and the characters are interesting and original. so, why only one star? Because, the more I read, the more the book fundamentally disagreed with everything I believe in. Ayn Rand, the author of a different book called "The Virtue of Selfishness", has created an ode to selfishness, capitalism and indifference to others if they are below your 'moral code'. I've never been so angry reading a book. Actually, I don't think i've been angry reading a book, usually it's a total pleasure. Probably worth a read, but I wish I'd never touched this book. I feel as if i'm a slightly dirtier and more corrupted person for having read it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Written like Dan Brown when he was 14, 3 Mar. 2010
This review is from: The Book of Lies (Hardcover)
Terrible book. He's tried to do a Dan Brown style book, but unable to think of a decent plot has stuck a bunch of unrelated stories together: Cain and Abel, Superman and modern days. Worst book i've read for a few years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original, engaging and all-round brilliant., 26 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Antichrist [DVD] (DVD)
It's been said better by previous reviewers who gave it 5 stars, but i just wanted to add my voice to the "it's brilliant" side. I think you can see from the reviews that this is a divisive film. you're either going to love it or hate, i'd say. Really really worth a watch though

What an album! Great for getting ready for a night out, blasting in the car, or pretty much anytime when you want to feel good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic film, 7 Oct. 2008
like someone else wrote it's like an American Guy Ritchie film, or like an american version of Twin Town. Two brothers getting revenge. funny, cool and raises good questions.
well worth a watch

4.0 out of 5 stars aye, pretty good, 14 July 2008
I'm not quite sure why i enjoyed this film so much. it has something. even though some bits are kinda cheesy, other bits totally aren't, and it makes for a brilliant film somehow. i'm not doing it justice here. it's definitely worth a watch. i think some people will love it, but i dont reckon it'd be everyone's cup of tea.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT!!, 2 July 2008
This review is from: Yes Man (Paperback)
honestly one of my favourite books of all time. Really changed my attitude to be even more positive, and do things that you may not particularly feel like doing, cos it will usually be brilliant. inspiring, and all round brilliant. can't recommend it enough.
