Awful! The wood quality itself is acceptable but there are no predrilled holes for the screws nor are the supplied screws long enough to lend it any structural integrity. Do not buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful integration of vampires, nazis and germ-warfare, 1 April 2003
This review is from: The Breed [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This film noire is a tale of vampires. I know what you’re thinking- “original”. Well you could be forgiven for having this view, after-all; this is truly a genre that has been done to “death” (excuse the undead pun). To make this film work it would truly need to be innovative and new; which it is in a big way. Rather than the classic idea of the undead rising for a taste of human flesh, it adds another angle previously unseen in other vampire movies- a scientific one. This revolutionary movie idea portrays the vampires as an evolutionary step-up from humans; that have evolved with super-human attributes. But fans of the classic vampire film need not worry, as this film still has its vampires craving blood, being immune to diseases (most of them anyway), and being resistant to hurt- unless it is fatal or caused by silver bullets.

NSA agent Steven Grant (Bokeem Woodbine) is reluctantly assigned a new partner after his partner is murdered on a case. He later learns that his partner was murdered by a vampire and as if this isn’t enough, he later learns that his new partner Aaron Grey (Adrian Paul) is a vampire. He is now part of a world he never knew existed; a world where there are creatures so strong that they could kill a man like a helpless kitten, and unfortunately these creatures have reason to; they have a taste for human blood. As he struggles to come to terms with this he is partnered with this cop, who continues his education in the matter; explaining how vampires are misunderstood- being no longer a threat to man, having developed a synthetic substitute for blood. They continue their search for a "renegade" vampire that is attempting to sabotage an as-yet secret co-existence agreement between the humans and the vampires. With heavy political pressure upon the two differing "cops" they must get results and stop the mysterious renegade before irreparable damage is done to human / vampire relations before they begin. It is a race against time, as any wrong move could destroy any chance of integration and lead to a war between the two races…

4.0 out of 5 stars A detailed look at the legends that shaped Middle Earth, 26 Feb. 2003
This somewhat bulky book is comprised of the first four volumes of- "The Histories of Middle Earth" (twelve in total). Due to its size and rather overwhelming content it is only really suitable for the more devoted Tolkien reader. It is best read after reading "The Silmirillion" as the stories are all mainly based around the events therein. It takes a lot of time and effort to get involved in, with the earlier chapters being somewhat dry and uneventful, but after four-to-five days of solid reading it is thoroughly enjoyable. Since it is the product of four volumes I will review each of the volumes in turn.
Volume 1: The book of lost tales, part I
This first volume covers the first half of the Book of Lost Tales, introducing the mariner Eriol (of the race of men) who discovers the Lonely Isle (Tol Erresea) of the Elves and there is told the tales of their ancient history. It begins with the theory of creation, supposedly through the mantra of angelic beings (later called the valar) and continues through to the destruction of the bliss of Aman by Melkor (later called Morgorth), one of the valar, corrupted by greed and selfish desire. It tells also of the Noldor's (high-elves) revolt against the valar and their departure from Aman.
Volume 2: The book of lost tales, part II
This volume of the Book of Lost Tales narrates the fundamental tales of the Quenta Silmarillion. It includes the basic stories of Beren and Luthien, of Turin, and of the fall of Gondolin. It tells of the events and deeds of the banished Noldor and the decay and mortification of the world at the hands of Morgorth and his foul creatures. The volume concludes with the final battle between Morgoth and the Valar. It includes vast amounts of information on Elvish languages (mainly Quenya and Sindarin), which is sure to please scholars of his articulately constructed languages.
Volume 3: The lays of Beleriand
This volume comprises of some of the tales from the Quenta Silmirillion in poetic form; written by the elves of Beleriand before the battle between Morgorth and the Valar. The two most fully developed are the Lay of Lethian (the story of Beren and Luthien) and The tale of Turin Turambar. There is also a extensive evaluation of the Lay of Lethian, written by C.S. Lewis, which provides and in-depth look at some of the flaws and wonderful interpretations of the text.
Volume 4: The shaping of Middle Earth
It includes various prose fragments following the Lost Tales, which provide further insight into the "Sketch of the Mythology". It also includes The Annals of Valinor and of Beleriand which are a sort of parallel telling of the events. In their beginning they appear to be little more than a chronology, but they gather momentum as you continue, to reach a comprehensive narrative, which is indeed a real joy to read.
This is a wonderfully constructed book, and i recommend every avid Tolkien fan out there to read it, after all there is no better way to understand Tolkien's fantastic Middle Earth.

4.0 out of 5 stars An essential read for more avid Tolkien readers, 24 Feb. 2003
This review is from: The Silmarillion (Paperback)
I must start by saying this book is not for everyone. It is written more like a religious text than the prose synonymous in Tolkien's other works (e.g. 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of The Rings').
It is for this reason that many people find it difficult to engage in the text at first: admittedly I also had the same problem. But once you are immersed in the richness of Tolkien's Middle Earth and the magnificence and intrigue of his tales, it is impossible to put down.
One of the most incredible parts of the book is Tolkien's theory of creation. It astounds me that Tolkien had the imagination and ability to create such original and influencing tales; creating histories and Theories of creation that look like the mythology of a whole ancient race, not the workings of one man.
The only reason the book has been given 4 stars is because it is only suitable for more ardent readers, who have a real passion for Tolkien.
The is a wonderful book and can be read before 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of The Rings' as a foundation for later characters and ideas, or afterwards; as I read it, to further illustrate Tolkien's intricate Middle Earth.
