1.0 out of 5 stars Much worse than my Apple headphones, 23 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Massively disappointing. Tiny, cold, empty sound. Much worse than my Apple headphones.

No volume control.

Gutted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Long, slow and unfocused, 10 Mar. 2014
I watched this film off the back of the incredible Twilight Samurai. Whilst there are some nice touches throughout the film including a great performance by our lead protagonist, it's quite an uneven and meandering film.

It's not particularly deep and not that well made.

It's not a bad film but I think it's very over rated.

One of the best books I've ever read.

Bruce's sharpest weapon was his mind.

This is a book which you can read for hours or just a few seconds. Both will enrich your life.

An essential purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unplayable, 4 April 2012
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
The controls don't work which makes this game a total failure. Most of the game is so on rails you don't have to do anything. This is presumably because they realised the controls were broken.

I had extremely low expectations and they were far too high.

Avoid even if you are a massive star wars fan.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fatally flawed, 21 Mar. 2012
The legs are covered in grease so that they can slide in and out.

Do you want grease anywhere near your camera or lenses?

No. Stupid design and sent mine back.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed Masterpiece, 6 Nov. 2011
You have to see Tree of Life for yourself. Even then you will have to watch is 3-5 times before you can truly appreciate it.

Reviews seem to be split between unadulterated raves and savage critiques. In truth, both of these arguments are right.

Unfortunately there is an awkward sequence (from meeting Sean Penn to discovering the creation of life) that seriously derails the film and is probably responsible for a large portion of the negative reviews. While we understand a grieving mother asking God why he took her son, Penn's introduction is one note (city life has disconnected him from his true self) and too long. We then move into the 'creation of the universe' with no clear understanding why this relates to what we've just seen. More interesting voice over from either Mother or Son at this crucial junction would have provided the stimulus needed for us to undertake this journey. As it is, it is a beautiful sequence but one which feels too disconnected from the family narrative. Such a shame and so easily fixed.

If you are able to look past this mis-step, the 2nd half of the film is truly magical. Once we get stuck into the family dynamics the film finds solid footing and it features some of Malick's best work to date. He seems to understand the human condition better than any other film maker. He's also never forgotten the questions we all asked as children. Why should I be good? Is there a God? Why do we die?

While this doesn't hit the heights of Thin Red Line, it is still a bold, spiritual and life affirming film from one of life's true geniuses.

Go see it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Warning, 2 Sept. 2011
For anyone not yet aware Lucas has made further changes to these film even beyond what he did on the DVD. This includes the final climactic scenes of ROTJ.

Read up on it before you purchase to avoid heart attack during viewing :)
