Some games little overpriced but otherwise, a fab load of games! Love the fact you have to earn the games :)

4.0 out of 5 stars A hilarious action movie!, 6 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This comedy action movie shows that you can still cram the film with witty, crude humour, guns and a great voice cast (Ewan McGregor, Rosamund Pike, Timothy Spall, Richard E Grant, Richard Griffiths to just name a few) even if it does involve puppets. If you liked Team America: World Police, you will love this too! In terms of its delivery, it came near enough the day after! Therefore, a brilliant service from the company.

I would recommend this to any action enthusiasts looking for an alternative film that includes a British cast

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value!, 6 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before buying this, I noticed that in shops the two films alone would total up to about 10. However, this boxset is certainly worth buying instead of the separate buys! Two amazing action comedies starring the impressive British duo - Simon Pegg and Nick Frost - and directed by the epic Edgar Wright which coincide with the Cornetto Trilogy (with 2013 World's End being the finale of this series). Great delivery too! A few rough edges on the box but that was expected as it was a used set after all.

Would highly recommend to any action enthusiasts searching for new films or for fans of The World's End who want to experience new material from Wright, Pegg and Frost

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing quality!, 6 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Usually, I'm reluctant to buy clothes online just because of the possible fuss of sending things back if they don't fit, not being able to try it on, etc.

However, this is my first exception! The Queen logo is of an amazing quality, the actual size of the shirt matches the UK sizes guidelines and it was delivered earlier than I originally thought! It has now become my favourite t shirt in my wardrobe!

A strong recommendation for Queen fans such as myself who are searching for apparel/merchandise

4.0 out of 5 stars An intriguing short., 25 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Morissey's erotic tale of a Prince and his lover, Julian, certainly filled with enough detail to create intimate imagery.. but lacked in depth and pages. For literary, it's a five. For how short it is however, hence why it is four. Plus, I really expected more at the ending to be honest.

If you're looking for a good night in, I'd absolutely recommend this film... that's unless you've a faint heart in terms of sexual innuendo as it's full to the brim with it :D perfect film!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!, 24 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Short, snappy and sweet! The three S's I look for and achieved from this book :) Finally, a love story with a simple setting and scenario. Loved Ian's small appearance in the story; he was like Dev's fairy godfather. Winters has also made sure any intimate scenes were not too graphic to put the reader off but passionate enough to create a sensual atmosphere.

Absolutely deserves its 5* rating! I'd recommend it to any adult who enjoys romance :')

5.0 out of 5 stars A Single Man's Beautiful Tale of Lost Love, 27 Dec 2012
After watching Tom Ford's beautifully screened adaptation, I had high expectations that Isherwood's novel would have carried through this beauty through to paper. Boy, was I not disappointed! Although the language may seem difficult for younger readers, the wonderful interpretation of George's emotions and his battle with grief and lost love compensates for this difficulty.

The only thing that bothered me was that, as the story progressed, I noticed many differences between this and the film. A major one being George's memoirs with Jim. Yes, Isherwood wanted his character to be able to move on to a certain extent. However, Ford's adaptation of this that previously showed moments close to you needing your tissues horribly seem false compared to what Isherwood wrote.

Overall, a beautifully written book. I've used the word 'beautiful' maybe too many times now but I can't help it. It is beauty written in words. Like a poem. Because of its language, I'd recommend it to adults wanting a romantic indulge into telling of events that can be related with everyone.

Don't let George's love for a man stop you from reading this beautiful, severely underrated book!
