5.0 out of 5 stars Pure self defence, 28 April 2006
This book is brilliant. It keeps it simple, not overloading you with complex techniques but rather giving you concepts and technique ideas to help you survive, and just as important the psychological mind set surrounding self defence. There is no non-sense in this book and he does not claim to have all the answers or that his specific techniques will work for everyone every time.

If you have no experience in self defence this book is great, its simplicity means you can pick up the concepts discussed easilly.

If you have self defence or martial arts experience this book is superb. It builds on concepts and ideas that you have developed over your training allowing the conversion from martial art technique to street survival technique. Not only this but it also feeds the mind of the practioner to explore all aspects of self-defence.

The way the book is written also makes it a very good read. His humour and stories draw you in and keep you reading. It also makes his ideas easy to remember. I often find myself wondering what Animal would do in situations I see or believe could happen when I'm out and about.

Buy it, enjoy it and learn from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure legend, write that down., 26 April 2006
This is a great film with lots of laughes, the sort of film that gets you giggling at the memory of it.

Plus if you like Tara Reid she's looking stunning in this film and you just have to believe what she says as the last line of the film (I won't spoil it fella's but trust me you'll know what I mean when you watch it).

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite films. Gosh!, 26 April 2006
This review is from: Napoleon Dynamite [DVD] (DVD)
This is one of the most random films I've ever seen. The first time I watched it I had no idea what was going on and watched it 3 times in my first week of having it deliverd. There is no real plot or point but it is still a great film. It's best watched with your friends, especially if you've had a few. Some great one liners and catch phrases, makes you quote to your friends all day long.

It is a film you either love or you hate, but give it a go and give it a couple of watches too sink in and I'm sure you'll love it. Even if people don't like it you can crack them up by quoteing lines from the film so there must be something in it that people love even if they don't know it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Odin's Raven it's good!, 26 April 2006
Excellent film, made me laugh the whole time. Not taxing on the brain, if you want an intelligent comedy get something else, but if you want cheap laughes and enough one liners to keep you quoteing them to your mates for ages this is a must buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Quality, 24 Mar 2006
This review is from: Black (PS2) (Video Game)
This game is superb. High adrenalin action mixed with lovely graphics makes the game one of the most hectic FPS's I've ever played.
The graphics are close to the quality of Killzone and the gameplay is excellent, although it can't beat Halo and Halo 2 on the Xbox.
It's a bit short but has alot of replay value just to jump into the thick of the fighting. The destructable environments add to the frantic gameplay and can also add some funny kills and spectacular explosions.
It does exactly what it says on the tin, not bothering with puzzles etc (although there different objectives which make you explore the whole of the environment), instead focusing on giving you more bullets, enemies and mayhem than you can shake a stick at.
If you fancy a no-brainer with plenty of action get this game.
My favourite guns are the Glock and especially the magnum, although the machine gun is plenty of fun when you just want to make a scene and feel like the terminator!
