I have always been disappointed by Jennifer as she just does tonnes of pop corn movie romcoms. While starting like that it actually has a story and gets quite serious!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really for iPhone4, just a bit short, 11 Feb 2012
Fits and protects my touch iPod 3rd generation perfectly, the iPhone4 just pokes out at the top which means if it lands on that end in the street (Murphy's law says it will) a corner will get scuffed / damaged. Pushing it hard in does not help (who want's that hasssle anyway?) because when you turn it upside down the iPhone 4s slides out a little bit more. Pulling the tab strap hard over the top does not help, in fact makes it worse because by its very design the strap coming from inside at the bottom pushes out the iPhone 4 ! Shame really, nice material, nice look and feel. Case needs to be about 3 or 4mm longer then it would be perfect. If you look closely at the side picture of this item you can see the tight fit.

1.0 out of 5 stars Time Limits in Games Should Be Banned, 31 Mar 2007
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
I got this as it looks very pretty and thought it would show off the PS3 which it does. Unfortunately everyone raves about the quality and how it has been improved over the 360 version - great but people are missing a fundemental point. I do not have all day to play a game, I want to use it for short burst of entertainment and that's it. This game has been ruined with Time limits (I am talking Dunkirk stage here), I will never get anywhere with this apart from frustrated because I always run out of time. This is suposed to be entertainment, it is not entertainment when developers are trying to hook you into playing a stage for what seems like ever until you get past the obstacle. I couldn't care less about skill levels and improvement. Just wanted to be able to pick it up, fly over London for a bit then do other things with my life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Popcorn movie, 7 Mar 2007
This review is from: Inside Man [DVD] (DVD)
I did not like this movie, it was too incomplete for me. The bank heist keeps the cops from guessing what's going on inside the bank, because the crooks are breaking into a saftey deposit box to get evidence that the bank owner (Christopher Plummer) was a WWII Nazi collaborator, they are not stealing money. Nice spin but there was no explaination as to what relation the crooks were to Mr Plummer of how they knew about his skeleton in the closet. Also the crooks spent a long time digging a hole in the ground in the bank basement to get to some underground pipes but that never seemed to come into the story, they did however end up with a hole in the wall. As Michael Caine has admitted about his past I think this was a Mortgage Movie for Denzel and Clive.

5.0 out of 5 stars The DVD I've been waiting for., 3 Sep 2003
This review is from: Le Mans [DVD] [1971] (DVD)
Steve was an accomplished racing driver and his Porsche 908 was entered in le mans '70 to gain the on board driving sequences at the start (although he was not allowed to drive). When the film was made in '71 Steve drove another Porasche against 41 international drivers filming for 5 months on location. There is little story, its about a race and the people in it such as Steve who is playing a driver injured the year before. Non race fans may not like it, but cleaned up with 5.1 sound, the music, the cars, some real footage and fantastic filmed driving sequences, no other film has ever or will ever capture the emotion and atmosphere of racing let alone '71 le mans with Porsche 917K's and other cars of that era. I have been waiting for this movie for a long time. (its been out on video in the states for years).
I recommend the book "A French Kiss With Death", it covers Steve's career, Le Mans history, the cars and how this movie was made. In fact, I think I'll put it on again....

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Idea, Shame About The content, 11 Nov 2002
This review is from: Ocean's Eleven (Audio CD)
This soundtrack has lots and lots of dialogue and maybe 4 tracks that I like. Shame that my 2 favourite tracks from the movie and the only reason why I purchased this CD are not on it - namely the cool track following "if released what will you do ?" when Daniel Ocean is leaving the prison at the start of the film and the end track when they all drive off. Can't help feeling this CD was produced by someone who had not seen the movie or interested in it. This is to be polite annoying. Well, at least we got most of the dialogue from the movie, I can now throw away the dvd.
