4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Comic Adaption, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This film is a comic book brought to the screen.
It is Dredd.
You must watch it, it is the law!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bond Is Back, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Daniel Craig carries his role in this film to perfection.
Thankfully there is now a Bond to take the baton over from Sean.
Besides the excellent story, the locations etc what sets this film up there is Javier Bardem As Silva. You have to be class to portray a bad guy at his best, and Javier is Bond's match, finally we had a baddie Bond deserves. Sadly, this was ruined by his demise (sorry for the spoiler), His class of evil deserved better or to be fair another shot at Bond perhaps?

Also have to ask, why is the gun barrel sequence at the end again, what happened to the openeing sequence of old - it was Bond.

2.0 out of 5 stars Artistic Licence Should Be Revoked., 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok, yes it is a good film, it is entertaining and the CGI is top of it's game, but.........

Being a Tolkien fan means you love the books and knowing the books means any film adaption should be true to them.
Firstly, yes 3 films for Lord of the Rings because it was a trilogy. The Hobbit could have been stretched to 2 but going for 3 is ONLY and excuse to get more money out of the public, no other reason.
This film has been stretched too far and Peter Jackson has taken liberties with the book - they are so obvious i'm not going to list them here.
Making a good film of the book would have been enough, adding your own interpretations, padding etc is an insult.
Very, very disappointed.


Messiah - The Complete Series 1 - 5 Collection [DVD]
Messiah - The Complete Series 1 - 5 Collection [DVD]
Dvd ~ Helen McCrory

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Crime Drama, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In it's day this was a masterpiece of TV crime drama, such is its appeal that even today it is still brilliant.
Then why not 5 stars.
Well for me series 1 to 4 were awesome, Ken Stott and his team were were outstanding. Sadly, Marc Warren good actor though he is, and his team didn't have the same effect for series 5, and so for me it gets 4 stars.
I'm not really sure why Ken left or the series ended but if the writers decided to carry on without him or resurrect the role with someone else but as a follow on series 5 lets the other 4 down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Good Modern Adaption, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Carrie [Blu-ray] [2013] (Blu-ray)
Too many people call this a remake - it's not.
This was a Stephen King book that spawned a 1976 film that, to date, is still a good film.
This is an adaption of the book, not a remake of the film.
Chloe plays her role perfectly, she is after all a really good actress that clearly has a future ahead of her. And to be fair, all the actors play their roles really well and as such the film achieves what it sets out to do. However, I must admit i preferred the alternate ending.
Not sure how quick they needed to get the film out but one small criticism - proof check it before you release it. It's not her fault but Chloe was only 15 when this was made and in one scene she is lying on her back, being attacked by her mother. Sadly you clearly see her, during the fight scene, take her left arm out of the fight to bring it down and adjust her dress which was beginning to reveal what she must have thought was too much. I'm not a critic but i clearly saw it, didn't ruin the film but it shouldn't be there.
That said, it is a really good adaption and well worth watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't go wrong., 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Put in the mix, time it and enjoy lovely fluffy omelettes made perfectly it's that easy.
Now for the technical stuff.
Adding a little milk does make the omelette fluffier.
It does say you can use 1 or 2 eggs - 2 large can been done but for plain only, adding a mix to 2 eggs can get messy.
You do need to be careful on the timing - with additives it takes longer.
I found it better to put the egg mix it first and then sprinkle stuff in later.
The hot plates are not removable (would have been easier) but it is easy to clean - avoid abrasives.

I would recommend this to anyone and it is so easy to use and then clean.

4.0 out of 5 stars Musical Bliss, 17 April 2014

Lana is as usual, superb.
Can't really compare her to anyone else as her voice is unique added by a really good remix.
It is emotional, entrancing and well worth listening too - again and again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How I Live Now [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Yes it is a story of life's struggle and how you can overcome adversity, topped with teenage angst etc etc.
Unfortunately it has gaps and it just lacks credibility.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shockingly Truthful, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very factual book and having been out there it is always nice to read one from this perspective that actually gets it right.
Clearly well researched and notwithstanding, very well written.
This is not for those who only want the 'gung-ho' story but it is truthful and hard hitting and finally some people have been named and shamed - deservedly so.
Well done Mark, great book.

4.0 out of 5 stars It just gets better, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whether you played the previous one or not, or you are a GTA follower this is the best by far. Your desires and imagination are not restricted, so go out and create mayhem Mr President.
Its fun, limitless and graphically superb either as a single person or multiplayer and the fun factor is unrestricted - unless the thought of the President of the USA fighting aliens in a mankini is serious.
Play it, you'll enjoy it.
