5.0 out of 5 stars Good innocent fun, 10 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flushed Away [DVD] (DVD)
This is an excellent children's film which follows the adventures of a domestic pet, Roddy, who gets flushed down the toilet by a rat from the sewer. Realising that sewer life is not for him, Roddy enlists the help of a young female rat (who owns a boat) in order to get home to Kensington. And that is where the adventure really begins. There are some extras with this DVD as well. There is a simple word game, against the clock, and there are numerous printables and a virtual slug game for the youngsters to play. All in all it's a good product and a reasonable price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wii!, 6 Mar. 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this product for 139.99 just before Christmas and I consider it very good value. It took a while to work out how it worked on my Sharp TV, but once I got a menu on the screen it was very easy to access the games. With this package you don't get any nunchuks, which are essential for playing the boxing game, and you only get one wii controller, so if you want to play a four player game of MarioKart for instance you'll have to buy 3 more controlllers which will cost upwards of sixty pounds. You also get only one motion plus controller, which is essential for playing some sports games, and they cost around 15.00 to buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A world without string is chaos., 6 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MouseHunt [1998] [DVD] (DVD)
This is an excellent film about two brothers who inherit their Father's string factory after his death. The father's dying wish is that the brothers work together in the business, but while Evans is committed to the concern Lane, who already has a successful catering business, just wants his share of the Estate. The inheritance comes with a house, and it is there that the duo come face to face with a mouse they just can't get rid of. While attempting to destroy the rodent they entirely destroy the valuable property itself, but stumble onto a profitable venture that will suit them both. It's not laugh out loud, but it's good fun and well worth watching. Pure Family entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential for use of a nintento wii, 6 Mar. 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once you've decided to buy a nintendo Wii you're going to need to get at least one of these to play games. If you buy a package deal, like the one I got on Amazon for 129.99, this comes with the console and wii sports/sports resort cds, but you'll need a controller for every player, so to have a four player game of Mario Kart, you'll need to buy three more of these. They don't come cheap, but in general Amazon is the best place to get them for price. I bought this one from Amazon marketplace, so of course there is the extra 2.80 you have to add to the price for postage and packaging, but there is no way round having to get this essential piece of kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'You cant suspect us, we're British.', 6 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Horror Express [DVD] (DVD)
This wasn't quite as scary as I remembered it being when I watched it 30 years ago, but it was, nevertheless, extremely entertaining. Top performances from those giants of horror, Cushing and Lee, are actually surpassed by Telly Savalas in his brief role as the arrogant Cossack leader, who takes his men in pursuit of the phantom wreaking havoc on a trans-siberian train. Silvia Tortosa adds glamour and beauty to the film as the Countess Irina and there's even a bit of humour thrown in for good measure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for an essay on Social Constructivism., 6 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a five star resource for anyone wishing to do an assignment focusing on Vygotsky's employment of what Bruna termed Scaffolding. It explains how assessment is best achieved using a Vygotskyan approach, and how student teachers should structure lessons for effective learning to take place. An all round very informative work, but try to read it before your course starts rather than when you are under pressure already, in a classroom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice girls' watch, 5 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On close inspection this watch has a few slight failings, but only very slight ones. When I looked at the dial I found it quite difficult to read the numbers. But it cost five pounds, is very attractive and is a nice shade of pink that will probably appeal to most girls. It has a few features that are not all that obvious from the picture here. For instance, the numbers on the face do not appear to be same size, but that doesn't detract from the time piece's look. It probably adds attraction, in fact, for a youngster who perhaps is still learning to tell the time. All in all it is a very nice item at a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ooh this is Awful, but I like it!, 5 Feb. 2011

This review is from: The Best of Dick Emery [DVD] (DVD)
Some of this DVD seemed decidedly unfunny, but then came the classic Dick Emery character, the trans-gender woman, and the sledgehammer double-entendres and innuendos were impossible not to laugh at.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warning: This is addictive, 22 Jan. 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this game from Amazon for 20.99 brand new (it seems to have increased appreciably in price since 24.12.2010), and it has been great fun to play for all the family. The only problem is you might not be able to stop playing it, even late at night, and kids I should think would be very difficult to prise away from it. It has, as it says, a wii wheel, which I think is necessary for maximum ease of driving and enjoyment. There are, at the outset four different Grand Prix cups to compete for, but as you improve the game unlocks hidden Grand Prix and new drivers. The instructions with the pack I got, however, are in every language except English, so if you want to find out how to slide round corners and benefit from tips about speed enhancement you'll really have to go on line.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable, 21 Jan. 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It cost 14.99 but it was worth the cash because, along with wii deal I purchased, I now have enough motion plus accessories to play multi player games on wii sports and sports resort. Nearly all the games on Wii Sports and sports resort require a motion plus accessory for each player. As another reviewer has pointed out though, your best bet is to buy the wii remote that has motion plus built in, because it's tidier and cheaper.
