This review is from: Cube [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
Huis Clos set in a Rubik's Cube. Why would you make a feature film of something barely interesting enough to be a game?


Dead Reckoning
Dead Reckoning
by Sam Llewellyn
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Dick Francis with Wet Feet, 10 April 2012
This review is from: Dead Reckoning (Hardcover)
This was a pleasant surprise for a random grab at a boot sale. A Dick Francis style book about ocean sail boat racing with plenty of adventure, good plotting and an interesting lead character (as well as plenty of other convincingly drawn characters). If you want something snappy, exciting and not too intellectual, you could do a lot worse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary ..., 1 Feb. 2012
This isn't to my taste but if you are at all into odd things in music then you should give it a serious listen. It's not like much I've heard before and I cast the net pretty wide. I suppose it has to go in a "folk" box but very dark and strange (Fiery Furnaces grandparents, Mr Soft by Cockney Rebel with Tourette's?) Indescribable is an over used word but this comes close. The songs are also quite diverse and, for a wonder, most of the (much) later stuff on the second disc is very good but differently odd.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't be a "no suck" sucker ..., 24 Jan. 2012
This appears identical to the Debenham's branded USB computer vac. It doesn't work. Never mind keyboards it won't even do loose dust on a varnished floor. Could someone who has a bit of free time take this to Trading Standards as "not fit for purpose" please. Interestingly amazon won't let me give this no stars because then it thinks I haven't rated it but I gave it the worst I could ...


Pattern Recognition

5.0 out of 5 stars Why is he so good?, 16 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Pattern Recognition (Hardcover)
Given what Gibson is known for, this book ought not to work and yet it makes you realise that his real skill is in observing the minutiae of life as well for an imaginary world as for the actual one giving the book a lot of substance. This is probably not cyberpunk though there are parallels in the kind of trend surfing, hot desking, blogging, globalised, postmodern (floating) world that Cayce Pollard (the protagonist) inhabits. It is certainly not sci fi extrapolation (being set about 4 minutes in the future). Yet I think I'd vote for it as Gibson's best book so far. (The original cyberpunk trilogy is cooler and stranger but his writing was less assured then.) Like James Bond after Roger Moore I find I am looking forward to each new Gibson more than the last. (I just hope he doesn't blow it with the equivalent of Daniel Craig - basically a SecondLife avatar which escaped into the real world.)

5.0 out of 5 stars High Time ... More Please, 5 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Matchbox (Audio CD)
Poppier than totally authentic rockabilly but infernally catchy and danceable, this was long overdue on CD. I cherished my vinyl copy ever since the eighties. If you even remotely interested in this kind of music or half remember one of the hits, you are in for a treat. Rare extra tracks too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow ..., 15 Jan. 2010
This review is from: The Thistle (Audio CD)
You have to admire someone who can dress up in a helmet, kilt and enormous sword while singing kinda funk to a weedy synth backing. The mismatch between music, lyrics and image is so "out there" that everyone should try it, especially the bonus videos (most of all the one for Over The Sea). The stuff that cults are made of.
