5.0 out of 5 stars great lp, 23 May 2012
This review is from: Thriller (Audio CD)
if you are a heterosexual man who likes his music ballsy, raw and provocative then this is the album for you. If you are not a heterosexual man or a woman then don't bother with this lp you'll find it too loud, offensive and discordant for your taste you should stick to Peter Andre, Sylvester and Jane McDonald who specifically set out to cater to your needs.

3.0 out of 5 stars a film of 2 halves, 28 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Drive [DVD] (DVD)
first half = a humourless film where people speak very few words needlessly slow with lots of pointless film noir style slow mo throw in for no benefit whatsoever and don't even get me started on the turgid synth-tastic soundtrack...

second half = rather good revenge / chase movie featuring some decent fighting / kill scenes

big problem with it was the lead character who when he wasn't killing people he is a monosyllablyic fool who can make a sentence of say six words last what seems like an hour, basically he seems like he has some form of speech problem or learning difficulty but then in other scenes he is speaking normally and killing people using the expertise of a seasoned serial killer, it just doesn't go together...

if the film was just a short movie consisting of just the last 40 minutes or so then it would have been one of the finest short movies ever made, as a full 1 hour and 30+ minutes full budget hollywood movie it is a let down, if i hadn't been told to stick with it by other people who had watched it cos the ending was pretty good and cos i know the director from his previous work on the fantastic PUSHER trilogy, i wouldn't have bothered cos the first half left me cold with it's over-stylised no substance nonsense.

3.0 out of 5 stars not a bad little film but clearly the story is not entirely true, 28 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Red Dog [DVD] (DVD)
it's just the true story seems to be in line with so many hollywood / us tv family drama cliches... i won't elaborate cos i'll ruin the film for anyone who wants to watch it, not a terrible film and despite not believing it there is some truely touching scenes in it such as the ending, and the dog is simply brilliant in it the emotion it potrays just through it's facial expressions and just through it's eyes is simply brilliant, the dog is a more expressive actor actor than many of hollywood's brightest stars who demand millions of dollars per movie despite being as wooden as the crucifix jesus was crucified on i'm looking at you Ryan Gosling, Keanu Reeves and Orlando Bloom...

How To Get Away With Murder In New York
How To Get Away With Murder In New York
Price: £2.95

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I hoped for, 25 Oct. 2011
Maybe I was a bit pre-emptive in my reading of this book but the title is a lie and I should maybe think about getting it done for libel under the Trade Descriptions Act of 1968. For you see I commited three murders whilst waiting for this book to arrive, I left the corpses rotting away in my basement until the book hoping the book would give the answers as to what to do next. Unfortunately after a whole day spent reading the book it isn't what I hoped for, the neighbours came round complaining of the small eminating from my basement and they phoned the police and now I am on the run from the police who want me for three homicides. Life on the run isn't as glamorous or as fun as you'd imagine, it's boring and nerve-wracking...

1.0 out of 5 stars Orlando Bloom oh my god why?, 25 Oct. 2011
A terrible film just worsened by the fact the stamp of awfulness that is Orlando Bloom stars in it. This is the equivalent of having a terrible uncurable disease and then a doctor coming along and saying 'we're going to have take out that heart of yours', why has Orlando Bloom not learnt to act by now? He's starred in enough films alongside some really good actors e.g. Johnny Depp, Stephen Dillane, Michael Sheen and Heath Ledger to name but four, why does he not have the capacity to learn? Even my hamster can learn why can't Orlando Bloom? Is my hamster more intelligent than Orlando Bloom?

1.0 out of 5 stars A terrible book, 27 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Imperial Bedrooms (Hardcover)
Read about a 100 or so pages then gave up the ghost a terrible, terrible book devoid of warmth, storyline and just a whole reason for its existence really. I am a fan of Bret Easton Ellis 'American Psycho', 'Glamorama' and 'Lunar Park' for me are all great books but not this one, maybe it's time he gave up on writing for good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Over-long and over-hyped, 27 Aug. 2011
After watching 'The Last Temptation Of Christ' I was expecting so much more but ultimately was left disappointed by this overly long and tedious piece of fiction. Also having read other religion's equivalents of the Bible again I was left disappointed, the Dhammapada (Buddhism), the Torah (Judaism), the Guru Granth Sahib (Sikhism), Dianetics The Original Thesis (Scientology) and the Qu'ran (Islam) are all far superior works of fiction which under-line the religious beliefs of each of their organisations in a much more exciting, structured and less angry manner.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book, 24 Aug. 2011
After watching Team America World Police and being informed in song form that 'Everyone has AIDS' I had to find out more about this seemingly unstoppable disease. After reading this book though it seems that Trey Parker and Matt Stone had lied to me the gays and the strights it seems don't all have AIDS and neither does the Pope, in fact the AIDS epidemic is not as bad as the song made out, thank goodness really as I was worried for a minute there.
