2.0 out of 5 stars For simple people, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This film is for people who claim to like sci-fi but actually like Will Smith. The kid can't act at all and it's not funny, it's embarrassing. If you like real sci-fi, ie. without Will Smith, give it a miss

1.0 out of 5 stars Shambles, 2 Sep 2012
Am I supposed to believe that in a world where fox hunting has been outlawed, the killing of children for sport becomes acceptable in our distant future? This is a film for children, which is entirely inappropriate for the audience. The characters and acting are childish, in the same way as 'the golden compass' yet the subject matter is just stupid. Anyone who thinks this is amazing has not watched enough movies or read enough books, it is simply poor and why I should support one child and not be concerned about the other deaths, just because the hand held camera is following one more often, is beyond me.

On that subject, the picture is jittery and one of the worst I have seen in recent blu rays. This is not a story about human courage, it's a story about blood lust for fame and if that sits well with you, you need to have a serious sit down with yourself. If you are under 18, you might enjoy it but you will find as you get older and experience more, you find it silly and realise it makes no sense at all.

It has a 4 star rating from 'nuts' magazine on the front and really that is all you need to know. I will be listing my copy used on amazon but I don't suggest you buy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's really not good enough, 6 July 2008
I have tried to like it, listened to it again and again but I'm sorry, it's just OK. Adam's voice sounds soulless like he is strolling through the songs and not feeling them and in the end the division of rock and country as oppose to a normal track listing just makes it boring. They're my favourite band in the world but seem to be running out of ideas. My wife is a massive fan and she fell asleep half way through!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great band, great track, 11 Jan 2007
This review is from: Trains To Brazil (Audio CD)
This is a fantastic song by a great and upcoming band and I needed to balance the other review which was of the shop and not of the artist. By the way, when was the last time a single had six tracks on it. They can't do that as it would not be allowed to chart. Where have you been?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but calm down, 10 Aug 2005
This review is from: Back To Bedlam (Audio CD)
This is a good album containing some powerful and striking moments, but the excitement is way out of hand. This ranks with the likes of John Mayer, catchy pop songs you can sing along to, but I fear it has become one of those albums that the sort of person who only buys two CD's a year buys and their next purchase will be the new Katie Melua CD. Don't get me wrong, anyone would enjoy this and I am in love with Katie Melua but for deep meaningful lyrics and long lasting talent see Damien Rice, Ryan Adams or Bright Eyes

2.0 out of 5 stars Is this a joke?, 13 Nov 2003
This review is from: Introduction (Audio CD)
Why has someone, who is supposedly the future of British music (according to Daniel Beddingfield) released an album of covers. I don't think Imagine, Yellow and Beautiful make her bid for success very realistic. Also, why do people keep banging out about her as if she is going to change the world and she's only 19. Siobhan Donaghy and the Sugababes show what you can achieve at a much younger age than that and it is Siobhan Donaghy's album of original material that I suggest you buy instead

4.0 out of 5 stars Ignore all put downs, 10 Nov 2003
This review is from: Rock N Roll (Audio CD)
If Rock N Roll had just been released by a new artist, they would be described as the future of music, but this is an album made by a man who is already the future of music. If you like Adams' last effort 'Gold' but know nothing else about him, then yes you will be disappointed. However, if you are a Ryan Adams fan or just learning of his work, you will be mightily impressed. Although people think this is a big diversion for Ryan, they are completely wrong. This is Ryan Adams going back to his roots, pulling on his influences and succeeding. Before Whiskeytown, Ryan was in a band called Patty Duke Syndrome. They made music very much like this (in fact 'Hypnotixed' was on their never released album which was recorded in 1994) and Whiskeytown showed similar love for rock with tracks like 'Oklahoma'. Ryan himself has recorded sessions with his band The Pinkhearts which were much heavier than the officially released stuff and his work with Jesse Malin (The Finger) was hard core punk. This album was actually much tamer than I expected, it has beautiful rhythm sections and commited fluency like any other Ryan Adams record. 'So Alive' is clearly influenced by The Smiths and he himself claims there are Nirvana and Oasis references on other tracks. 'Anybody Wanna Take Me Home' has been played live for a while now and it's about time it was finished and the same goes for 'Wish You Were Here'. Tracks like 'Shallow' are no different to the likes of 'Enemy Fire' on 'Gold' and I really don't think he has moved away as much as people suggest. Ryan will get back to making music that the coffee table lovers want at some point (he records about four albums of material a year) and until then enjoy Rock N Roll, it's a good thing and we need those. After all, he only started that damn country band 'cos punk rock was too hard to sing

1.0 out of 5 stars Ooh my ears!, 16 July 2003
This review is from: Seven Years - Ten Weeks (Audio CD)
As expected, this is a typical pop-star album in the style of Gary Barlow but without the fun aspect that Take That brought to the music scene. David Sneddon's voice grates throughout and at times the lyrics prompt you to turn the volume down in case the neighbours hear and think you are listening to kids music. Fame Academy was a great success in producing artist like Sinead Quinn and Ainslie Henderson, but this is simply laughable. 'I can't believe that you pull on your sleeve when you cry' Sneddon sings in 'Stop Living The Lie' well believe it, people do pull sleeves, just what is he on about (rhyming isn't everything)
