3.0 out of 5 stars Atlantic Pacific, 31 Aug 2013
This review is from: Atlantic Rim [DVD] (DVD)
Let's be honest. If you saw this film for 99p you would buy it just to laugh at it and then casually toss it aside.
If you go into this film expecting anything more than 99p's worth of entertainment you will be grossly disappointed.
Saying that, this film does however sit head and shoulders above Sharknado and that other classic The Raven.

Possibly the most impressive part of this film is that they've somehow managed to create a clone using part Kevin Bacon and part Michael Biehn circa 1996. Although it would appear that the cloning process removes both personality and any acting ability.
The CGI has suffered due to the company spending all of the budget on the Bacon/Biehn clone and the sets look like they've been rescued from the future zone section of the Crystal Maze.
So, if you're wondering what Pacific Rim would have been like had Guillermo Del Toro let his 10 year old nephew direct it, and forced him to use his weeks pocket money to pay for the production look no further.
Never has the phrase "you get what you pay for" been so true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great interview mic, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for a series of interviews I recently conducted as this mic is intended. A few people on here have been saying they have bought it to use as a web cam mic. It is not intended for that, so if that's what you're looking for I suggest looking elsewhere. If however you need an affordable mic for interviews this is a great little piece of equipment. Remember to either switch it on or always leave it switched on otherwise you won't record any sound as it by passes the camera built in mic.
The lead is quite fragile aswell, so just make people aware that there is a trailing lead along the floor!

4.0 out of 5 stars I can't FP100-C why the price is so high!, 18 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great film, the gloss version is tack sharp and the colours are rendered very well.
The price creeps up slowly by the day, so for a film that used to cost 7.99 we're now paying double.
The upshot is that fuji continue to manufacture this film, which until the impossible project begin to make a
peel apart film compatible with the wide range of cameras this product works with, is the only viable choice on the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgically beautiful, 8 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The BQE (Audio CD)
I was born in 1980 and my childhood was filled with imagery shot on super 8 movie cameras and music from programs like Sesame Street.
When I was 6 or 7 years old I saw Ghostbusters and then later on came Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The reason I am telling you this is that for me New York city was the place where all of these things happened whether they were real or not didn't come into the equation.
Nostalgia has always played a big part in my life and sitting in a darkened room with the sound of a cine projector clicking away will always remind me of those times.
When you watch a video shot on a camcorder the first thing that springs into your mind is "my god, do I really sound like that?" but when you sit down to watch a cine film the sound is removed and you are transported back to that time.
When I first sat down to watch The BQE I hadn't quite prepared myself for what I was about to see.
What Sufjan Stevens has accomplished with this album is to create an auditory experience that just somehow fits. The film is the perfect match of super 8 imagery to music that conjures up memories of simpler times.

1.0 out of 5 stars Elementary my dear Poe, 8 Aug 2012
This review is from: The Raven [DVD] (DVD)
Not only was I stunned to see so many glowing reviews for this movie but also that John Cusack has such a passionate fan base who somehow believe him to possess acting skills!

I understand that everyone is entitled to their opinion, so here goes.
This film is a sub standard copy of Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes. For some unknown reason the writers saw fit to turn a literary great into a one dimensional mumbling fool turned detective. The music, lighting style, cinematography and even the beginning shot of the film where the carriage runs through the puddle are the same as Sherlock Holmes and any potential aesthetic gaps are filled by nods to Tim Burtons Sleepy Hollow, Although Cusack lacks the charisma of either Depp or Downey Jr.

I read one review that suggested that the 'gifted' Nicolas Cage would have been better suited in the role.
My only statement is that the film would have been better left on the shelf.

4.0 out of 5 stars Milliput, 18 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Milliput is an extremely versatile putty and can be smoothed down with water whilst sculpting to ensure a smooth finish.
It is a little sticky when first mixed, but after a while becomes less so.

Once left overnight it turns rock solid and can be drilled and sanded to fine tune any extra detail.
This is a great price for this product, considering that it is nearly 5.00 a pack from most "hobby" stores and is also
a much cheaper (and in my opinion better) alternative to "green stuff".

The Mask

5.0 out of 5 stars Who's laughing now?, 4 Nov 2010
This review is from: The Mask (Paperback)
What can I say about this graphic novel other than it is an absolute classic.
If you have ever suffered the misfortune of seeing the film before reading this book then I urge you to give this character another chance.

The story centres around The Mask which is passed from character to character, eventually ending up in the hands of Lieutenant Kellaway
who intends to use it to clean up the criminal underbelly in the city, Ultimately The Mask begins to corrupt Kellaway and all who subsequently wear it.

This books sets itself up perfectly for the sequel The Mask Returns which amps up the mayhem and destruction to new levels.

If you were utterly disappointed with the film, buy a copy of this book. Make yourself a cup of tea, open the first page and let all those memories of
the movie adaptation slip from your memory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now that it's been a year, 20 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Greg Laswell first sprung to my attention when I saw the Autumn De Wilde directed video for How The Day Sounds.
After seeing the video I immediately purchased this album and was not disappointed.
If you appreciate great song writing, in a similar vein to Sufjan Stevens and Midlake then buy this album.
You won't regret it.
