The Road [DVD]
The Road [DVD]
Dvd ~ Viggo Mortensen
Offered by A ENTERTAINMENT
Price: £2.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone but this dark post-apocalyptic drama is well made, 18 Sep 2014
This review is from: The Road [DVD] (DVD)
The Road is based on the award winning novel of the same name by Cormac McCarthy and a mostly faithful production to the book.

The film is a rather deep and bleak look at the main characters in the form of father and son Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smit-McPheem both of whom have no actual names but are simply credited as "man and boy" respectively. This is a story of survival for the two, and how they cope with the aftermath of the disaster. There are no real answers given as to why civilisation has collapsed or why there are some "survivors" the film explores their journey and ultimately their quest for simple survival.

There are few other cast members, Charlize Theron is featured in flashbacks as the "man's wife", Robert Duvall plays and old man by the name of "Ely" the only name given during the entire film. Later in the film Guy Pearce and Molly Parker have minor roles the cast is small and concentrates mostly on the father and son.

Story wise it's really showing the journey of the two lead cast members "man and boy" this doesn't sound too exciting but they have numerous struggles, and some encounters with other survivors. Directed by John Hillcoat the film certainly excels in the moody and desperate/barren scenes conveying a collapse of society and a barren bleak landscape.

Both of the lead actors do an outstanding job of portraying their roles, not just in terms of the script but there are moments of little conversation and an air of despondency in the acting which isn't an easy thing to do. Sometimes just the facial expressions and tone of voice add significantly to the feel of the film. I found the ending quite good (don't expect a super happy conclusion a small tiny bit of optimism is there), but it's a film which isn't comfortable to watch at times it successfully pulls you into the no hope world the two find themselves in. Not a film to play if you're in an upbeat mood The Road makes no real attempt to lift the viewer it can at times be very heavy viewing.

Quite an unusual film in may ways credit to the team overall the atmosphere is right on the mark. This isn't a film all viewers will enjoy but I can't really fault the experience and story. Worth checking out if you are looking for something a bit off the beaten track.


KidiZoom Smart Watch (Blue)
KidiZoom Smart Watch (Blue)
Price: £26.39

4.0 out of 5 stars A pretty good first "smart watch" for younger kids, 18 Sep 2014
This review is from: KidiZoom Smart Watch (Blue) (Toy)
I bought one of these for my nephew (aged 5) as he's keen to play around taking photos/video and is fascinated with technology as all kids are today.

The Kidizoom smart watch is aimed at the 4-8 years age group approx. (older kids won't be interested in this despite the makers age range). The design features a 1.4" touch screen LCD with simple operation and a few buttons on the left there is the home button, right hand side features a micro USB port for data transfer and charging the built in lithium battery (this is covered by a flap to stop dirt/water getting in) above this is the shutter button for the camera located at the top part of the watch. To power on/off there is a small switch on the underside of the watch.

Build wise it feels pretty good with the usual Vtech soft touch effect plastics (the same as they use in their kids cameras) It's splash proof, but it is not waterproof so don't put it under water.

**What it does**

After you've set the time and date on powering it up for the first time you have various activities available:
Camera/Video recording, 3 games, alarms/timers, clock face which allows you to change the display of the time, voice recorder etc you can also add frames to photos for fun effects etc

**In use**

As expected for kids operation is very simple the home button taking you back to the main menu and the touch screen makes the device interactive and intuitive. It takes about 2.5-3 hours to charge the battery at first expect daily charges as they will play with it a lot after a while you might get a few days between charges the screen does auto shut off after a while (you can change the time in the settings) but you'll want to power it off with the small switch on the underside of the watch to save power.

Don't expect too much from the watch in terms of video and photo quality is really quite basic:
320 X 240 is the max video resolution and 60 seconds per clip, photo quality is 0.3mp ok for fun but you won't get printable results off of this. You can transfer the files off the watch using the micro USB cable just plug it in and locate the DCIM folder and drag them over to your computer.

The internal memory is 128MB in total apps share this memory and there is no way to expand it. You can take hundreds of photos though (the files are small) but video will quickly eat into the available space so 5 minutes of video will leave little left keep an eye on that it could really do with a micro SD slot or bigger memory.

Overall he really likes the watch and there is an educational aspect to it (esp the time part with lots of displays to pick from) Battery life could be a bit better and storage isn't as big as it might be, but for a first kids "fun/learning watch" this is a nice product in most ways. For slightly older kids getting more into photo/videos then I'd suggest a super budget inexpensive compact to let them play with. If you're looking for a multi function watch for this age range this is targeted at it's quite a good buy.


Sony Xperia E1 UK Sim Free Smartphone - Black
Sony Xperia E1 UK Sim Free Smartphone - Black
Offered by Technomobiles
Price: £90.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent budget Android phone, 17 Sep 2014
I've used a few of the budget Sony smartphones before and felt they were a bit lacking in a few key areas (screen quality and not as quick as I wanted processor wise) The older Xperia E was not as good as it should have been (in my view)

The Xperia E1 is much improved in some respects and running Android 4.3 out of the box, though it's not the last word in budget phones it's worth looking at.
My quick summary of the good and bad...

Pros:
+ 1.2 GHz Qualcomm MSM8210 dual-core, this is good enough for most users and doesn't suffer the lag of the older E, it's pretty snappy
+ Screen is vastly improved in every respect, larger, higher resolution, more colours and better contrast
+ The sound is good, Sony make a big deal out of the xLOUD speaker and it's not hype it's pretty impressive for a built in speaker (and yes it is loud! but as per most built in speaker not much bass)
+ Build is ok for this price range, joins and seams are tight with no creaking, though the plastics used could be higher quality
+ I had no problems or issues with wifi connection, or call quality and day to day use.
+ Fairly well featured for a budget end phone, as usual Sony cater quite well for the entertainment side with their Walkman (which has a dedicated button on the top of the phone - good for music quick playing), Movies app, and sound filters.
+ Bluetooth 4.0, aGPS
+ Battery Stamina mode, it's not a gimmick it does help (turns off wifi and connections quite aggressive battery management- you can cusomise the notifications) heavy users will need a charge every other day, but lighter ones can go a bit longer.

Cons:
- 512MB ram ok it's a budget phone, but still Android does like a bit more memory at times
- Camera is "ok" but nothing to get worked up over 3mp no flash, fairly basic passable for snaps. Budget models don't do well here, and the E1 is about average ok in good light not so great low light. Video is basic enough and can be a bit choppy at times too.
- While the screen is much improved, the viewing angles could be better, not great in this area
- No NFC (becoming more sought after)
- No front facing camera, even a basic one would be useful (skype etc)

Other information:
Micro SD supports up to 32GB
GMS networks: 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz

Xperia E1 "major" improvements v the E

+ Screen is now 4" v the 3.5" on the older model and resolution is much better too (480x800 v 320x480). A lot More colours 16 million v 262k big difference overall
+ Dual core processor 1.2GHz v the single core 1 GHz (this is a very obvious in using both handsets the older E is just "slow")
+ Longer battery life (Sony quote over 8 hours talk time v just over 6 for the E) battery is up to 1750mAh v 1500mAh on the E (but note the screen is bigger) Day to day not a big difference though between the 2 models
+ Newer graphics processor Adreno 302 is more able to deal with games and 3d applications over the old one.

There are a lot of rivals out there and whilst the E1 doesn't blow the barn doors off spec wise, it does at least bring the older E (which was in my view a bit dated even at launch) up to par. Gone are the laggy slow responses (do bear in mind the ram is only 512MB though) and sub par screen that we had previously wasn't the most convincing offering for a budget Android handset. Games also play quite a lot better on the E1 (it's not top tier by any means but acceptable at this price point)

This is a much nicer phone to use, and no doubt will drop a little in price. Worth considering in this price range, where as the older E wasn't really. You can buy the Xperia J which is a bit cheaper in price, but it's only got the single core processor (and like the old E is not a fast handset) There are rivals that have somewhat better screens than the E1 (even though it's improved quite a bit it's a normal TFT not an IPS like the Lumia 520). It's a good choice for heavy music users thanks to the walkman button, good EQ settings and above average sound quality.

I'll give it 4 stars and will update the review with any issues/problems over time. Quite a solid offering that's worth consideration. The market is quite a bit more competitive though with lots of improved models out there so have a look around or wait for a price drop on some networks the phone is fairly cheap as a pay as you go option


Sony Alpha 24-105mm F3.5-4.5 Lens
Sony Alpha 24-105mm F3.5-4.5 Lens

4.0 out of 5 stars This discontinued lens is well worth a look for A mount users, 17 Sep 2014
The Sony 24-105mm f3.5-f4.5 is identical to the Minolta version bar the focus and zoom rings which use Sony's finer but more dust prone ribbing, optically they are the same merely a small cosmetic difference.

Released originally by Minolta in 2000 the lens first saw action being bundled as the "standard" zoom lens with the Dynax 7 film body, whilst the lens is a consumer grade lens in terms of build it's extremely compact for the zoom range it covers and feels much better built than a normal all plastic kit lens. It's an update to the previous 24-85mm lens which covered a shorter range at the telephoto end.

As this is a full frame lens it's suitable for use on APS-C and FF DSLR's and will work as intended on 35mm SLR bodies too. The main attraction for users is the useful 24mm starting point on full frame this adds a good bit extra v a normal 28mm zoom lens, and on a crop body offers an equivalent 36mm starting point, not a genuine wide angle but possibly wide enough for some shots.

My summary of good and bad points for this lens

Good:
+ Very compact size and relatively light at around 430g
+ Covers an extremely useful 24-105mm range with a somewhat faster speed of f4.5 at the telephoto end
+ The lens is sharp at 24mm it will need stopping down to f8/f11 on full frame cameras to improve the edges but it's usable with a very slight veiling haze at f3.5, it's tack sharp even at 105mm @ f4.5 (in the centre) on full frame stop it down a bit to tighten up the corners at the tele end
+ Build quality is quite good for a consumer lens with a metal mount and decent plastics used in construction, the supplied petal lens hood "helps" a bit with flare control, some flare can be present but shows as flare spots rather than a large loss of contrast across the entire image
+ Focus distance scale is shows on the lens body in a window, the filter does not rotate on zooming or on focus (useful for filters)
+ CA is fairly well controlled there are small areas of CA on some outlines green/magenta but fairly narrow and not overly present in most images

Not so great:
- There is vignetting on full frame mostly at the wider 24mm mark (quite strong at f3.5)
and even stopped down to f11 or so there is still a bit present, a little at the 105mm mark too though not as obvious.
- Distortion can be fairly hefty at the wider end barrel distortion is a moustache shape (can be corrected though requires a bit more effort) pincushion is quite pronounced at the telephoto end though correction is not a huge issue.
- Zooming is slightly stiff at times, there is no zoom lock but I've not seen zoom creeping issues on this lens

Other notes:
Max magnification is 0.18x (1/5.6) about average for a lens of this type and reasonable enough for closer up shots, there are better lenses for this though (even the 18-55mm has a very good close focus performance but optically rather average)

The lens is a "D" type lens distance encoder this is useful for flash (ADI flash on Minolta and Sony bodies) When used on a film 7 body you will get the depth of field readout too

Filter size is 62mm which is shared with a few other lenses the Sony 18-135mm, Sony 16-105mm, Zeiss 18-80mm and Sony 70-300mm G lens.

Lens speed drops to f4.5 at just over the 50mm mark

Overall despite some compromises the lens puts in a good performance on both digital and film bodies. Sony took over production of the lens for a few years before ceasing production (for some reason), so the Minolta version is more common on the used market. Normal second hand advice applies look for a good sample with clean glass and outer casing.

I found this lens to perform better overall than the slightly older though still quite good 24-85mm Minolta

At the usual asking price for a good copy of this lens it's a bit of a steal really esp for full frame users who don't really have an affordable 24-something zoom lens (there is a Zeiss which is excellent but costly) even APS-C users might find it a good general purpose lens if you can live without the real "wider angle" to date the lens has not had an equivalent from Sony or a replacement. Despite being a standard "screw driven lens" this is optically a good performer and should be fairly high up the list of most A mount users looking for a bargain.


Of Mice and Men (Penguin Classics)
Of Mice and Men (Penguin Classics)
by John Steinbeck
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.68

5.0 out of 5 stars A heartbreaking story delivered in a masterful way, 17 Sep 2014
John Steinbeck's of Mice and Men is one of my all time favourite books, for a number of reasons this book delivers a powerful punch that is sure to move anyone who reads it. The book was originally published in 1937 and has been adapted to film a number of times (and with some success) but it's the original novel that demands the fullest attention of readers of any genre.

Steinbeck's story is based around two travelling farm workers who have dreams and aspirations for a better life a simple dream to have their own place and a small piece of land. The two main characters feature George Milton an uneducated man but with some natural intelligence, and Lennie Small who is somewhat backward and simple but with a kind heart and enormous physical strength/

George is plays something or a guardian role for Lennie he looks out for him and tries to keep him out of trouble as much as possible. Lennie is often unaware of the consequences of his actions and cannot comprehend his strength, but has a kind heart and a love of rabbits and small soft animals.

The two soon start working on a farm and all goes well at the start but it's clear that the farm owners son (Curley) has an intense dislike of Lennie due to his larger stature and strength. Curley frequently mocks Lennie and tries to provoke him at every opportunity this ends in a physical confrontation in which Lennie crushes the hand of Curley demonstrating in a brutal way how strong he is. Despite this set back things settle down as Curley realises he was the instigator and lets thing lie.

On the ranch an older man in the shape of Candy, a worker/handyman who lost his hand in an accident offers to join the two men and contribute his savings to go with them and get a place of their own. Candy feels his days of being useful on the farm are numbers and shares the dreams of George and Lennie, but their plans are soon tested when Curly's Wife (who is clearly bored and flirts with the ranch workers) unwittingly tests the strength of Lennie with dire consequences.

It's a straight forward and simple story that harks back to the era of the great depression but seizes on the hopes and dreams of people in the time of a better life with some security. Steinbeck's ending is crushing in it's intensity as the dream becomes a shattered reality rather than take an obvious way out he's chosen to leave a very lasting impression on readers. The authors ability to absorb the reader in both the characters and environment is unsurpassed he grabs you in and refuses to let go, the title of "classic" is often banded around a bit too much, in this case the story is magnificent; the execution near flawless and without question a modern masterpiece. Regardless of your preference in books taste or genre this is not to be missed

3.0 out of 5 stars Improved in the "re-cut" though still lacking something, 17 Sep 2014
I watched the original theatrical version and felt the film wasn't as bad as some critics had portrayed it, but the pacing was off and character development wasn't great you never really got to know the main cast as much as you would want to and some parts felt too slow with others being a bit "hasty and rushed" with some of the battle scenes not as full or beefed up as I had expected from a film touting itself as a modern "epic"

The re-cut version includes approx. 30 minutes of additional screen time (we're up to nearly 200 mins run time in total), there are extended battle scenes and the biggest change is in the taking of Troy which was glossed over fairly quickly on the first cut here we get a lot more action and depth. There are some additional bits including more on the Greek army attacks v the Trojans which does help lift the tension a bit more and importantly some characters get more footage helping development.

As for the film overall it does benefit from the re-working and visually it's still fairly impressive. My feelings about the cast are similar though I'm not entirely convinced with Pitt in the lead role he can act but at times seems a little vacant in such a headline role, Bana and Kruger are good though as is Sean Bean in his Odysseus character if a little predictable and overplayed but that's more down to the script than the actors.

Modern epics are not easy to do, I think film making has moved on in this regard and we've yet to really have a jaw dropping vast scale recent production that just nails everything down from storyline, script, cast, direction, action secnes. On balance though it's a more satisfying watch than the awful mess Alexander remains (even after extensive re-editing and cutting) at least the screenplay is moderately engaging and you will have some interest in the story.

Worth a peek even if you've seen the first run this does add more to the film even if it can't quite lift it to where I'd like it to be.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just a Morse "part 2", 17 Sep 2014
I had some doubts on this one, Morse was a fine detective series and I honestly thought it would be tough for Kevin Whately successfully pull off the lead role having been his side kick for so long. On reflection though the series works very well, with all the refined trimmings you would expect from a team that has previously honed their skills on the Morse series.

Here Whately steps into the main role as Detective Inspector Lewis, joined by Laurence Fox as Detective Sergeant James Hathaway and Clare Holman plays Dr. Laura Hobson the forensic pathologist as she did in the original Morse series. This set contains the pilot and the series up to 4, currently we're on series 7 so you might want the up to date boxed set if you're a big fan. However if you're looking for a bit of a taster to see if you like it this set is good value and offers enough material to get stuck into.

The first disc kicks off with a pilot which is film length at about 90 minutes we discover Lewis is recently widowed and as expected we more than a few references to Morse including a scene where a similar Jaguar car nearly hits Lewis after he departs the airport with DS Hathaway. It's got a strong story though and some good supporting cast members soon the bodies pile up in a good introduction to the series.

Series 1-4 (including the pilot) has 4 episodes, later Lewis runs had a few more and we're up to series which is a testament to the popularity of the show it's certainly lived up to it's heritage. Lewis as a character develops more over time the widower aspect means he devotes more and more time to his job as a detective at the expense of his personal life. He might not quite have the unique somewhat gritty charm that John Thaw had in his day, however Whately is a good actor and gets into the role nicely and Laurence Fox works very well as his new partner in solving the crimes, both are quite different personalities.

If you were pondering if Lewis is a second class Morse then don't, all the elements of a good detective series are here, whilst some stories are stronger than others nothing obviously sub par stands out, good performances an experienced production team it's nicely polished and a very satisfying way to move forward from the original. Certainly worth investigating for fans of the detective genre

4.0 out of 5 stars Good signal pick up, a few areas for improvement though, 16 Sep 2014
Note: The manufacturer sent me a review sample, no attempt was made to influence my review

This is the last unit I got to test and this aerial is a "flat panel" design yet it's still fairly compact at around 18 cm wide, 15.5cm tall and a depth of 2cm compact enough to put in various locations. On the back of the panel you have two slots where the small included metal stand fits allowing you to free stand the unit in either a horizontal or vertical position. There are two screw holes near the back top part where you can "wall mount" the unit if you wish. The coaxial cable is pre fitted and just over 1.2 metres in length

Power is provided either by a compatible DTV set top box (via coaxial power) or with the included wall adapter. The instructions are quite clear on how to set it up.

The aerial has built in gain of up to 28dB and covers the frequency range in UHF of 470-790MHz and VHF 87.5-230MHz making it suitable for digital TV and FM/DAB radio reception. Performance was excellent with the booster providing good signals even in slightly weaker areas as with all aerials position is important but it was as good as expected from a compact aerial a very good picture once I'd adjusted the location.

**Areas for improvement**
As good as the aerial performs there are a few things that I'd like to see change, firstly the gain is non user adjustable which isn't a huge problem but it would be nice as this is one of the better models in the range.

Build wise the plastics are a bit hard and hollow sounding this doesn't effect the performance but I'd like something a bit better quality wise. My main gripe though is if you are wall mounting the aerial the coaxial cable is put under pressure a bit even though the back part is slightly curved the cable area isn't recessed and I think a better solution would be to have a separate coax cable and a few sockets to allow some choice of connection locations (ie one on the back panel one on the side if wall mounting) the other alternative is to have cut out areas on the back part where the coax cable could sit into without protruding this would solve the problem of cable pressure.

I've no complaints about the performance it works very well, just a few points that would make this a better product overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact aerial that's ideal for travelling and works very well, 16 Sep 2014
Note: The manufacturer provided me with a review sample, the opinion of the product is my own personal view

This is another aerial I had to test and it's a bit different to the others. Firstly you have an "in car charger" which plugs into the booster unit (the small included accessory where the coaxial cable plugs in as does the power) you can use the aerial without the booster if you want. You also get an included power adapter if you want to power it up via the wall socket.
Onto the main unit this is quite an unusual design looking something a bit like a "mini cosh" which screws into the base part. It's a small unit only around 13cm in height clearly aimed at the take it with you user, still it works just great as a normal indoors aerial too.

You can also power the unit via a DTV set top box if it's compatible some of these cam power devices via the coaxial cable. The included instructions are very clear and show you how to set up the aerial in different configurations

This aerial is designed for USH frequencies in the range of 470-790MHz, the booster adds a gain of 26dB and in slightly weaker areas of reception this is a real bonus. In use as per the other aerials I tested this one worked very well, even in my somewhat iffy areas of reception the booster did a great job picking up the signal and without any issues with frames freezing or sound cutting off (the non boosted signal has this problem) So no complaints on performance at all, build is good and the compact size makes this a good all round option esp if you're out and about. I wouldn't mind an adjustable gain on the unit, this is a fixed type but that's a small niggle in a pretty impressive package. Don't be put off by the small size of the aerial this works surprisingly well.

A very good aerial/booster and recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good lightweight bluetooth headphones, 16 Sep 2014
Note: The supplier sent me a review sample, the opinion expressed here is my own personal view of the product

This set of phones are foldable and reasonably compact size wise, wearing them they are quite comfy too with the square phone parts having a good bit of padding. The main headband is a soft touch effect, with a rubber part inside, extending the size reveals metal bands and the hinges seem to be well made. No complaints In terms of build quality (for the asking price quite good)

**In use**

Initial charge is about 2.5-3 hours from flat the LED is red when charging and turns to green when completed
Paring the headphones up easy just power on and hold the central square button for about 7-8 seconds and the LED light flashes red/green to let you know you are in pairing mode, select MPOW from your device and it's ready to roll. You also get audio prompts like "power on/power off" and when it's paired up successfully.

On the left side you have the micro USB charging port, a multifunction button (the square one) and the track skip/volume control buttons a quick press changes the volume level and a longer one skips through the tracks on your phone/tablet. The multi function button accepts/end/rejects calls and also has a double press which re-dials the last number. When playing music it acts as a play/pause button. You have a small microphone under the left ear pad too which worked well and was quite clear during phone calls

The headphones are Bluetooth V4.0 but I tested them with older protocols and they worked just fine so fully backwards compatible during my field testing. The maker quotes an impressive battery life of 15 hours which is high for a set of phones like this, obviously this depends on your volume level too, I got over 12 hours in actual use over a few days which is very good for a set like this, you might get a bit more depending on your usage.

**Sound quality**

Mostly quite good in the sound department bass response is decent enough though could use a bit more tightening a slight emphasis towards the mid to treble end but a quick EQ adjustment helps here. In this price range the sound is above average, not stunning but respectable. Separation (tonal and stereo) isn't a strong point some room for improvement here.
Taking into account the package overall they do quite well and are a decent buy at this price point
One area I would like to see is the option to use them as normal wired phones too, a simple 3.5mm socket would allow this. Not a huge issue but I like multi use devices just the odd time you don't have a Bluetooth device it would be handy to be able to use them.

I quite liked the Mpow phones they're one of the better sets I've tested.
