5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended, 26 July 2015

This review is from: National Gallery (DVD)
An incredibly engrossing fly on the wall look behind the scenes at the London gallery.This is not really about the art work,although we do join talks every now & then or drop in on conversations about pictures.It's more about the day to day working,restoration & cleaning,making frames,making films about some of the art work & how things are displayed & lit.
At three hours long it's a marathon but i was glued,no knowledge of art is needed to enjoy this just a comfy chair,time & lots of tea or coffee.Well worth watching, very very good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor, Best Avoided, 25 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beyond (DVD)
A "romantic" drama which follows Cole & Maya who meet at a party.The news on the tv tells of an approaching asteroid but it's not really clear if it's an asteroid or aliens.The film flashes back & forth from before & after the invasion,showing the effect it has on their relationship as they try to stay hidden,but only at night as the aliens don't come out during the day.
This is dreadful,it's not a particularly good drama but fails in epic style in the sci-fi department.There is the odd shot of a hanging spacecraft but it feels like an after thought.The synopsis gives a completely WRONG impression of what you're about to watch,a miserable British drama about two people who don't really get on & ,as characters,you really couldn't care what happens to them because they're not that likable.
Don't waste your time.

This review is from: Perpetual Motion People (Audio CD)
The best bit of indie pop I've heard for sometime.Some of it's quite quirky with a retrospective feel running through the album.Great lived in voice with some bluesy roughed up tunes. Very Very good

1.0 out of 5 stars Mind Numbingly Boring,Dreadful., 19 July 2015

This review is from: Foxcatcher (DVD)
There is no plot so this will be short,a film about training half naked men on how to roll around on the floor with other half naked men is not entertaining,nor interesting.Yes there is something not quite right about Du Pont but that doesn't help the film,as for our all American wrestler,well,he is one big charisma free zone.There is nothing to get your teeth into story wise,paint drying has more drama.
A complete waste of time.

Not bad BUT I do agree with a previous reviewer,where is Wendy Carlos.The Shining would have been a lesser film without her soundtrack.

This is haunting stuff,jay never really raises his voice as he,to an extent,croons his way through the album.An easy listening album that's a bit trippy,highly recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 14 July 2015
This review is from: Communion (Audio CD)
This is really disappointing,the single is the best track & that's not great.Has those dreadful soft boy band vocals with each track sounding like a reworking of something you've already heard.
Very tame,bland pop.

This review is from: Get To Heaven (Audio CD)
It's such a relief when bands are obviously evolving but not losing that quality that hooked you in the first place.Still wonderfully quirky with plenty of vocal gymnastics,it's more of almost the same but even better.
One of todays more interesting bands & this certainly doesn't disappoint,loads to enjoy here.

This review is from: The Maze Runner (DVD)
I was expecting some sort of teen sci-fi drama but i was wrong.There are comparisons to be made with other films,but The Hunger Games immediately sprang to mind.
This starts with a young lad arriving in an enclosed outdoor area,he rises in a cage from below ground where he is met by a large group of other lads.This is the Glade,where the other lads have set up camp,our new arrival doesn't remember anything,including his name but we later learn it's Thomas.
The rules are simple,do your part,don't hurt another glader & don't leave.Thomas soon discovers what lies beyond the wall that imprisons them,the maze & every morning the doors open and the runners go in to map it & try to find a way out.They've been doing this for three years but with no success,but Thomas is curious & believes there's got to be a way.
The group is split into the builders,the slicers & the runners.Teresa is the last to arrive & the only girl,she with Thomas start to realize they might be part of the reason the group is there.

There is quite a bit of detail in the story with flashbacks revealing bits of the truth.The maze is inhabited by Greavers,large semi robotic spiders with a deadly sting.The second half of the film is about the escape & the devisions that open up amongst the group,those who want to stay & those,like Thomas,who believe there's a way out,the Greavers could be a clue.
Not bad at all,decent plot with good characters who are all likeable.The effects are pretty good,the maze itself is quite well done.Plenty of action &with the maze changing constantly,a bit of tension.Good film ,well worth a look and it's left open for a sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Waiting For, 10 July 2015
This review is from: My Love Is Cool (Audio CD)
Must be one of the most anticipated albums this year & it doesn't disappoint.This starts as synth pop but soon expands into a sort of grungy synth infused rock.Loaded with great tunes & a wonderfully full your ears sound,plenty of depth here.
One of this year's more interesting albums with an air of unpredictability about what musical style you might get next.Great stuff!!
