5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality, Great Value!, 14 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's perfect, everything worked fine. The microphone kind bends as well as moving on a fixed axis fitted on one of the ears, making it very flexible. Mic is good quality, sound is great.

Note that I wouldn't say these are 'noise cancelling', they don't keep out much noise, but I prefer that because I can hear myself speak better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Who The Hell Gave This FIVE STARS!??!?, 14 July 2014
Wouldn't normally give something one star, but my God, this is terrible. I watched the free online version (not pirated - actually uploaded by the creator of this, don't see much point in selling a DVD when it's officially free).

Ashens is normally a comic genius, but this had few funny moments. Most of it was cringeworthy. The acting was - mostly - abyssmal on Ashens' part, and considering he's the lead role, it ruined it. There were several plot elements that didn't make sense. The humour was striking for surreal, but kind of missed and fell into the realms of 'stupid'.

STAY AWAY. If you are really curious, attempt to watch it on YouTube, but 10 for this... crap, quite frankly, is just an atrocity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite What I was Expecting..., 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I admit, I fought something called 'Who-Ology' would have lavish illustrations and a variety of interesting facts. However, it's just trivia, page after page of trivia. Way over priced for basically just lists of trivial facts. It's funny sometimes, interesting here and there but for the most part it just isn't that good - and certainly not what I was expecting...

5.0 out of 5 stars My New Favourite Doctor Who Story!, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While some of the oldest Doctor Who episodes can be a little bit slow and boring before they get going, The Moonbase's pacing is just right. The Cybermen were genuinely creepy and story was very good. The animation, on episodes one and three, was excellent (only audio could be found for these episodes so they were animated). Stylized and very nice to look at.

A great classic Doctor Who story!

It's as good as it gets: it it compatible with my computer (Windows 7), it's pen and 'screen' is the right size and you can change various settings for it on your computer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The World's End [DVD] (DVD)
I enjoyed The World's End, but it wasn't up to the standard of the other films in the Cornetto Trilogy (Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz) which were hilarious for their entirety (except for that bit just before the end of Shaun of the Dead - dat was sad). The film felt a little bit 'so-so' in parts, and I felt the ending was rushed but at the same time too lengthy; the pacing wasn't very good in the finale, in other words.

The very ending was quite funny, and overall it's enjoyable - but certainly not a five star film.


Mortal Engines (Predator Cities)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the best teenage fiction books out there, Mortal Engines is an epic story that inspires. It builds up a rich world like no other, and I felt - for the first time when reading - genuinely not knowing what to expect to happen next and not trusting certain characters.

It's one of those rare books in which you feel hope for the character's journey and that is what makes it so great.


Fever Crumb (Mortal Engines Quartet)

Price: 1.30

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Fantastic Book from the Mortal Engines Universe, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Philip Reeve builds up the post-apocalyptic world of Mortal Engines so well it's genuinely believable. Fever Crumb is different from the Mortal Engines Quartet in that it's maybe a little bit slower - but this adds a whole new feel. It's creepy, it's funny and it weaves an excellent story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It!, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've always enjoyed pulp fiction art from the 50s through to the 70s - as well as painted concept art from these years - and this book has a fantastic collection of imaginative, colourful and sometimes inspiringly creative artwork. I really like it and I'd recommend it to anyone interested in Sci-Fi, space, comics or just a good laugh at some of the sillier pieces.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Little Science Project, 12 May 2014

This review is from: Ant World (Toy)
I've kept ants before when I was younger, but I decided to buy another one for a science project (and also because I've always liked nature - I know it sounds cheesy). The instruction manual was good, although I kind of knew all of the ant species info already, and there's plenty of space for a large colony of Lasius niger or Lasius flavus.

However, I ordered two magnifying bowls and three sections of clear plastic tubing from Interplay UK's spares section on their website, because I feel that one section of tubing and one small magnifying bowl isn't enough space for the ants. With three bowls connected, they had plenty of space to run around, which made it more interesting - I put the food in a different bowl each time so they couldn't predict where it would be.

For people saying it's cruel - it's only cruel if you don't know what you're doing. Only collect ants in the Spring, Summer and early Autumn before they start to shut down - disturbing their nest in the winter is bad, and they are more likely to not survive the transition process.

Ants will die if you don't know what to do, so be careful. If you can look after them and collect AT LEAST forty ants, the colony should be okay and thrive.

Some ants will die as they only live for a few months in the wild, and if you pick some from your garden they may already be very old and therefore be close to the end of their lives anyway.

I wouldn't recommend adding a queen as I think Ant World isn't large enough for more than fifty ants - some Lasius niger colonies can reach 5,000 at maturity or even more!
