4.0 out of 5 stars You can call me AL, 21 Feb 2003
This review is from: Serpico [DVD] [1973] (DVD)
Based on a true account of New York police corruption this is a great film and a must for any Al Pacino fan. The story focuses on the character of undercover police officer Frank Serpico rather than the corruption around him and is brilliantly portrayed by Pacino.
Worth watching just for the hilarious change in appearance of Serpico from a clean-shaven police officer to a long haired uncover hippie- with the clothes and a Dulux dog to match. Maybe not the most exciting film Pacino made but certainly one of his best. This is one for the collection.
The DVD extras are not very inspiring with no interview of Pacino which is disappointing, but who buys DVDs for the extras anyway?

4.0 out of 5 stars BUY THAT, 14 Feb 2003
This review is from: Analyze That (Audio CD)
Another excellent soundtrack in the trademark style of David Holmes- classy, gritty and exciting short tracks with a couple of laid back jazz lounge moments thrown in for good measure.
The album carries on the theme of his last two soundtracks but this time it's all his own work and without any snippets of classy dialogue from the film, which might suggest that David doesn't think there are any. A couple of tracks do sound familiar and appear to be unused subs from the Oceans Eleven soundtrack.
Don't wait to watch the film before buying the album as it's bound to be naff and watching Billy Crystal will probably put you off the whole thing entirely.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Future Of Adverts, 24 Sep 2002
This review is from: Trouser Jazz (Audio CD)
I am a fan of Mr Scruff but like his last album "Keep it Unreal" this is a bit too basic for home listening. The tracks sound good for twenty seconds or so but don't go anywhere and so you find yourself hitting the 'skip to next track button' too often. This is bound to be the soundtrack for endless future adverts and TV trailers.
Confusingly some reviews say this is Scruff's second album. Not So. His first and by far the best album simply titled "Mr Scruff" was released on Pleasure records in 1997. However this seems to be a difficult album to track down these days. Go seek and rewarded you will be!
