1.0 out of 5 stars Such a poorly executed film, 20 Oct 2010
This review is from: 13 Hours [DVD] (DVD)
Where do I begin?

The premise isn't clear. Irrelevant dialogue throughout. Reminiscent of a poor 70s horror.

I wasn't expecting much from this straight-to-DVD release, but I what I got was a poorly executed werewolf film that focused heavily on waiting for the police to come out to a big old scary house, and a distinct lack of excitement that would have occurred through the attempts to escape. Overall, such a shame, as it had the potential to be both a black comedy and a terrifying film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vince Vaughn leads an excellent cast!, 13 Feb 2010
This review is from: Couples Retreat [DVD] (DVD)
It has come to my attention that some people dislike this film, a lot! It seems as though you will either love it or hate it, personally, I love it. If you enjoyed Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Superbad, or I Love You, Man, you are very likely to enjoy this film. It may not be a hilarious belly-laughing film, but it has a good plot, an excellent cast and beautiful scenery. It is light-hearted and a little bit silly at times, but it was never intended for Oscar nominations, just a comedy; so take it for what it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brockman Family Christmas. Plus a 'wee' Scot and divorcee., 8 Jan 2010
It was the night after Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse, (because Sue is a mouse-killer, and Karen has long buried it.)

So as the family recover from a break-in, Pete and Sue decide to swindle the insurance company, whilst telling Jake not to download his music illegally. Meanwhile, Karen continues to ask questions about her 'gift of a goat to a family in Sub-Sahara' and Ben chooses to watch Christmas television, only to find the man 'ONLY had to kill three men' in the whole film.

BCA Award winning 'Outnumbered' is a great sit-com, highlighting the everyday lives of the 2.4 suburban family. This christmas speical may not contain lots of particularly festive themes, but the laughs are still there. It is a lovely family comedy that everyone can watch and a great link to the long awaited series 3.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dull, disgusting, an absolute riot!, 7 Jan 2010
This review is from: Human Remains [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
As a huge fan of Jula Davis and Rob Brydon, I decided to watch this series. It is a bizarre look on life, from six extremely weird couples. My personal favourites are Michelle and Stephen, as their unborn (non-existent) child Stephen. Cameos from Ruth Jones and other well known comedic actors and actresses only added to the sheer comedy of the programme. It is nothing like Gavin and Stacey, more along the lines of Nighty Night comedy. If you like The League of Gentlemen, you'll love this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best series yet., 30 Dec 2009
This review is from: 30 Rock Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Hilarious. Tina Fey has done it again with a crackin' series. I always ask people if they've seen 30 Rock, and nobody has heard of it, so I assume, if you are looking at this you either seen it, or considering buying it. Well, I say its worth watching. Bloody brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Season Yet, 17 Feb 2009
As an avid fan of One Tree Hill, I feel obliged to comment so soon. I am currently up-to-date with this season, but we are on hiatus at the moment, I'm not entirely sure why, I simply wait for the episodes to come onto the internet. If you have ever watched One Tree Hill, you will understand how addictive it is! The season is far more grown up than the others, but it has certainly made the show better. I hope this goes on to a centennial. Long live OTH!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Queen Bee of 2008 Movies, 1 Feb 2009
Ok, so I read the novel in a few short days, and instantly had to watch it. If you are more than aware, most people think the book is far better than the film interpretation, but for me, I'd say the film was on par. It is a beautifully shot film, with some brilliant actresses, and Paul Bettany plays T.Ray just the way I'd imagined him to be. It is a very sad film, but it tells a very interesting story of loss and overcoming difficulties in growing up. Definitely watch it if you've considered it before, you will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Style and Comfort, 26 Dec 2008
I got this watch for xmas, mainly because I liked the style, however, it is a very comfortable watch. My only problem with it is that it has quite a loud ticking noise. Great for comfort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Pure Genius!, 8 Nov 2008
This review is from: Russell Howard Live [DVD] (DVD)
I've seen Russell Howard twice on stage, both times I've been rolling in the aisles. His jokes are quick, clever, and outrageous, especially the one about his brother! He deserves to go far. I will definitely buy this DVD as soon as it's released!

1.0 out of 5 stars 0 STARS IF POSSIBLE., 8 Nov 2008
This review is from: Meet Dave [DVD] (DVD)
I really like Eddy Murphy, however this film is just terrible. The special effects aren't very good, and the story is really boring. Also, Eddy just isn't a very good actor. If you are looking for something to entertain small children on a sunday afternoon, this might just do, otherwise, steer well clear.
