Brilliant portrayal of factual based account and book adaptation. Saw this years ago and glad to see both actors have gone on to world recognition for their fantastic acting skills. Very poignant and beautiful film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget Mr Grey...read this thought provoking, brilliance, 7 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Enough has been said about the plot of the tale. All I will add is that with all the hype surrounding a certain 50 shades of s...te. This book would be a good wake up call to the tripe some may view/listen to/watch as entertainment.

A masterpiece of a tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked and Under Rated, 19 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Charlie Wilson's War [DVD] (DVD)
Charlie Wilson's War is a much overlooked film that I have only recently had the pleasure of viewing, It is ultimately a politicial drama based on real events with satire thrown in here and there to great effect, it is NOT a comedy! With very effective performances from Hanks, Hoffman and Roberts. As to the Paltrow advert at the beginning, well i can understand it annoying people but outright outrage is taking it a bit far methinks, just go make a cuppa whilst it is on then get settled for a fantastic film that certainly isnt a light-hearted popcorn film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Constant Reader - Lisey is back to King's best, 31 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Lisey's Story (Paperback)
I picked up a copy of Lisey's story not expecting too much to be honest. Having read all of King's books over a period of 23ish years I felt that my favourite author had "lost the plot" of late and seemed to have lost his way with writing.

Wrong! So wrong! Lisey's Story is an engrossing page turner and I believe, is a winner and back to the old form of writing and storytelling I know and love. Lisey is not some pathetic middle aged crybaby of a woman. The book has hearbreak, humour, excitement, horror, and is a real mix n match of emotions brought to life in a fantastic read.

If you, like myself thought that Stephen King has had his day, read Lisey's Story and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you liked Desperation you should read this, 3 Nov. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Regulators (Paperback)
The Regulators is a tale which relates very closely to Desperation both books were published simulataneously and both are a fantastic read.
Set in a small town it brings together members of a street when all hell breaks loose and a van appears in the street and randomly fires upon the residents.
I have noted that some reviewers werent very impressed with this novel but it certainly left an impression with myself, an atmospheric, creepy tale which i recommend you read and judge for yourself.


The Golden Age of Grotesque
The Golden Age of Grotesque
Offered by DVD Overstocks
Price: £5.34

4.0 out of 5 stars More upbeat than the usual Manson, 22 May 2003
I've listened to the CD a few times now and its growing on me, having most other Manson albums i couldnt wait for this to be released. The album has some very catchy (and suprisingly upbeat for Manson) song.....mOBSCENE the current single is a very catchy song along with Ziggety Zag and This Is The New S..T. While a couple of the tracks seem to refer to Mansons now defunct relationship with Rose McGowen of the Charmed Series. I did order the CD with DVD and watched the film once, may watch it again, its quite hypnotic actually with Manson repeating phrases over and over, some of which are related to tracks on the CD. If you love Marilyn Manson then go out and get this CD its a bit of a departure from Holywood in some respects but also seems in lots of ways to be a return the early stuff.
Not a bad place to start if you are just curious about the band either but you really do need to take a look at the lyrics whilst listening, some of which are really very witty indeed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just for the die hard Manson Fans, 18 May 2003
Maybe the band has mellowed slightly with age, i dont know but this latest CD seems much more accessible than previous ones, its got some great songs and i still think Marilyn Manson the band is under-rated and misunderstood in lots of ways, if you like rock music with meaning take a listen, this album has taken on yet another new image for the band and manson himself. mObscene being my favourite track to date, great, catchy song with a chorus that will stick in your head for ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric and Dark with Pacino on Top Form, 18 Sept. 2002
I just went to watch this at the cinama and will be buying a copy on DVD for sure. This re-make sucks you in and holds your attention from the get go and although we know who the killer is fairly early on in the film this does not detract from the story at all, a dark, compelling film with a brilliant performance from Al Pacino and Robin Williams does justice to his character also and he fits in nicely into his unusual role as the killer.
