1.0 out of 5 stars Full of annoying people being well...annoying, 12 April 2015
This review is from: Her [DVD] (DVD)
It's basically a load of irritatingly needy people sitting around whining about their emotional needs. It's hard to identify with, let alone like, any of them. I lost patience with the main character when he turned down Olivia Wilde (fool) to go home and abuse himself while talking dirty with his virtual operating system.
If you like obsessing about relationships interminably this film might appeal to you. If you're a bloke I confidently predict it wont..


The Queen's Fool
The Queen's Fool
by Philippa Gregory
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good job Elizabeth can't sue..., 7 April 2015
This is a rollicking good read and I would recommend it. Only quibbles
1. Is there any evidence that the 'virgin queen' behaved like a whore, particularly in public (thinking of the scene near the end of the book where she allows one of her favourites to intimately 'touch her up' in full view of her court. I know there is for the Tom Seymour scene at the beginning but this scene seemed thoroughly unlikely to me.
2. The heroine's outlook, behaviour and speech seems far too liberated/modern for a mid-16th century girl. Having made her moral stand earlier in the book the volte face near the end to achieve a happy ending didn't convince me. Also, having willingly gone lip to lip with Robert Dudley it seems unlikely that she would then be in a position to say no (and even more unlikely that one of the most powerful men in the country would take no for an answer).
Anyway, that apart, a jolly good holiday read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kitchen sink drama with laughs, 6 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Niagara Motel [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
This is an enjoyable, if not life changing, little film.
It is set at Niagara Falls but, apart form the fact that one of the characters lost his wife when she fell 'overboard' on honeymoon, it could be set anywhere, including - given the presence of Anna Friel - north west England.
This is a kitchen sink drama with humour, although most of the latter is of the dark rather than funny-ha-ha variety. It's pretty well acted, Friel in particular does well in a part that unusually requires her to do more than just wander around in her undies (although happily she does a fair bit of that too). Pollak is also very good, as are most of the cast, although I was less convinced by the financially on the edge couple.
Well worth 90 minutes of your life though.

Very nice, decent quality and my daughter likes them, although they are not quite as pictured. (no blue yellow and pink stripey one, with Pooh for example).


Cosmic
Cosmic
by Frank Cottrell Boyce
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed by both my 10 year old and me, 27 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Cosmic (Paperback)
I got my 10-year-old daughter to read this to me all the way through and it was an epic if enjoyable journey for both of us. Like the best of Anthony Horowitz's books, this can be enjoyed by both kids and adults and - if there are a few chapters where not too much of import happens - I would thoroughly recommend it.
Quite reminiscent of Charlie and the chocolate Factory in some ways but with more believable - and sympathetic - characters. Only criticism is that I found the end a bit abrupt and unsatisfactory.

3.0 out of 5 stars Early Blondie without the tunes, 15 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Far Away in Time (Audio CD)
this is a 'best of' compilation from a group that only had one hit. There wasn't even a follow-up soundalike cash in that crept in to the top 40 at number 39 and went out again. That said, they deserved more success. Most people will have bought this for Echo Beach, but there are a few other tracks were having. Best of the rest is undoubtedly Monotone, which comes, like most of the rest of the decent tracks on this CD, from the first album, (which accounts for the first half of this CD). There are fewer nuggets to be found in the second half, standouts being 'Women around the world at work' and the cover of Chris Spedding's 'Motorbikin', although on balance I still prefer the original.
Much of the album sounds like Plastic Letters era Blondie, no bad thing in itself, although the melodic invention is generally not up to Debbie Harry's lot. Judicious use of sax on a few tracks certainly enhances them though, and the use of keyboard on a couple of numbers brings the stranglers to mind, although there's nothing quite in the same league as 'Get a grip on yourself' or 'No more heroes' here.
I got someone to get it for me for Christmas, three weeks on I've played it quite a lot and I'm glad I've got it, although I doubt I'll listen to much beyond the best 2-3 tracks on a regular basis for much longer.
Not a waste of (someone else's) money though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the D'Oyly Carte recording, 4 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the recording to buy, unless you don't want the dialogue and can't be bothered to click on to avoid it.
The dialogue is well delivered, the tempi sound right (none of the ridiculously stately tempo of 'although of native maids the cream' on the d'oyly carte version here, and most importantly, it's pretty well sung throughout too, one weedy voiced minor flower of progress apart. Nearly all the men have strong voices and the women sound the right age (unlike on d'oyly carte where all bar Zara sound at least 60).
I gave it 4 stars rather than five because of the Zara, she is the only cast member to speak with an intrusive American accent and has a tendency (not unknown in principal sopranos at any level!) to try to dominate rather than blend in ensembles.
Overall though, heartily recommended.
