1.0 out of 5 stars Utter rubbish, 16 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
utter rubbish. The item is described as containing mixed lego blocks. True, I was expecting a mixed bag of bits, but not a bag of cr*p. There are so few actual building blocks it was a waist of money buying these packs. The item is described as being hand picked. If that is so, why are there parts of bodies that are incomplete. What is the point in that? Contains broken parts, which include wheels, bike parts, people parts and so on. Couldn't build anything from this bag of rubbish alone. I need to buy some genuine blocks just to make up for this rubbish. At £12, you'd expect a few people and/or a few wheels to build something worth while. This selection must have been picked by the same people who pack flatpack furniture at IKEA - A*Holes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Every shot lingers a little too long, but in a good way., 28 July 2014
This is a great sci-fi film. Every shot seems to linger a little too long, but in a good way. This is high concept with virtually no dialogue. The narrative is primarily visual. Scarlet Johansson is stunning, even in the crap, drab clothes she wears to blend in don't diminish how captivating she is. It doesn't hurt that she is completely naked in parts, but if anyone is watching it to get turned on, you'll be disappointed - try Vicky Cristina Barcelona if you're after that sort of fix. Great film - weird - but great.

This review is from: Artificial Paradises [DVD] (DVD)
I'll keep this short and sweet. If you enjoy watching world cinema and foreign language films, you'll have no trouble getting into this film. One of the reasons I hate going off reviews on amazon for films and books, is often the doughnuts that give the films or books in question poor reviews either don't tell you exactly what is the didn't like or they review the film on irrelevant matters such as deliver issues. This film is well shot, well acted and oozes great sex scenes. I don't think a film needs to be extremely deep to warrant a good review. I enjoyed it, and would even watch it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome artwork, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was unfamiliar with the sky doll series until ordering this book and now I'm hooked. The artwork is fantastic and the book has loads of great sketches. I love buying books that contain rough work as it gives you an insight into how others compose their work from the ground-up. I will be buying more sky doll books in the future

5.0 out of 5 stars Real sci-fi, 22 April 2014
This review is from: The Machine [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I really enjoyed the Machine - It's what true sci-fi is about - dark, poignant and emotive. This Machine is visually stunning in places and the design elements of the Machine herself, in her stripped down form, are fantastic.

Possible spoiler alert: there is a particular scene where the machine dances to some classical music and her creator watches on. It's a fabulous scene that echoes early spielberg/cameron-esque greatness.

The Machine has a b-movie style honesty that other great sic-fi films have and it covers new ground in the process. The plot and structure of the film serves the story well and it's packed with ideas. It also doesn't hurt that the actor that plays the Machine is stunning - well worth a purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great coat, shame about the annoying hood., 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great product - well made and durable. The hood is a little annoying. It works and fits but it attaches into two slits in the neck lining via some velcro. I prefer studs as they are less fiddly. Otherwise, it's a great coat, especially for the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought for someone else, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought it for someone else and she loved it. It's a great walking coat that will keep you warm and dry in pretty nasty weather. Although it's a snow jacket it will also withstand a wintery Yorkshire downpour. Fits great and looks good too.
