The Death House
The Death House
by Sarah Pinborough
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping story., 4 April 2016
This review is from: The Death House (Paperback)
This was a great read, very poignant in places, and expertly told. There were some terrific moments where the protagonist, Toby, was thinking about death that were moving without being morbid at all. The characters were very well written and believable. I could easily imagine that teens would behave this way. Unlike other reviewers, the lack of a complete explanation did not bother me, as I quite liked the simplicity of the story. That way the story was free to focus on the children's emotions and how they reacted to events. The plot itself was always interesting and full of twists and turns. In fact, the book was hard to put down, especially toward the end. Despite the grim title, this is not a depressing book, but very uplifting in the way it celebrates life. I would definitely recommend it for both older teens and adults.

This review is from: Nightcrawler (Amazon Video)
This film was okay. It was nicely acted, especially by Rene Russo, and very well filmed. It was a pretty twisted take on the "ruthless journalist" genre. It didn't really have anything else to say though. "Network" is a superior movie that says basically the same thing.

This review is from: Santana's Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Beware, this LP only contains the shortened versions of each hit without the long instrumental. As such it is inferior to the long versions.

One of the best soundtracks ever. I keep hearing fantastic pieces I never even noticed before when watching the film, like "The Search". Very recommended. Stirring stuff.

2.0 out of 5 stars Paint-by-numbers remake fails to fly!, 3 Oct. 2015
This review is from: Man of Steel [DVD] (DVD)
I want to say first of all that I'm a huge fan of Zack Snyder. I loved his Dawn of the Dead remake. However, this film misses the point. This is a dour Superman, a drab Superman, in keeping with DC's other mediocre offerings recently. A Superman without theme music. A Superman who really isn't Superman. He just gets mad and blows stuff up. There's never sense of Super's journey from orphaned alien to champion of Earth (despite the flashbacks to his youth). This is a story told in symbols. There are no real characters here. Zod turns up, but he has no real motive to take revenge on Jor-El's son (unlike Superman II). Supes himself has no real motive to become the protector of Earth. Lois Lane has no real motive to fall in live with him. It's like watching a paint-by-numbers recreation of a story that's been done a lot better before. The bad guys are unattractive. The hero uninspiring. The story beats are all hit, but it's an empty movie that has no real reason to exist. After all is said and done, the real Superman is still Christopher Reeve.

1.0 out of 5 stars this is as bad as you think, 2 Oct. 2015
Yes, this is as bad as you think. Gone is the loving care of the Ray Harryhausen stop-motion original. Instead, prepare for CGI overkill as the most unconvincing Greek hero ever goes up against unscary digital monsters. The plot doesn't make much sense in an effort to be as different from the original as possible. And don't expect any reason why Liam Neeson as Ancient Greek god Zeus wears 13th century European armour. It's loud, uninspiring and messy. For a better time, go watch the original instead.
