5.0 out of 5 stars Really funny!, 12 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A bit of a chick flick, but we see J Anniston is a very different role...a bunch of misfits form a 'family' to collect a huge drug haul and payout.....what could go wrong? , everything! And all done with some great laugh out loud moments!

My son literally devoured these! And he is 17!!!! That sums up the product as my son is usually a bit of a 'health freak',,

If you haven't read the book, this is a truly excellent film, with a great cast. If you have readit, the film does the book justice. Faultless. I would compare it to The Bridges of Madison County.... Thoughtful, thought provoking, excellent script and cast....and just... Perfect.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sunday afternoon film..., 29 Dec 2009
This review is from: Coco Before Chanel [DVD] (DVD)
I had vaguely known of Ms Chanel's poor girl/rich girl life previously. I was all prepared to be mesmerised (as the DVD cover suggests). Unfortunately, the story is slow and, as a previous reviewer suggests, focusses almost entirely on her love affairs rather than actually 'how' she became the style guru she was. The sets are beautiful and the characters developed sufficiently to give you the understanding that she certainly bucked the 'trends' of the time - in terms of her outspoken behaviour and refusal to conform. What it lacks is the real difficulty she faced in terms of being so different, and how she created her designs - the very essence of what Chanel represents. The film portrays her as simply getting her own way all the time. In truth, if Balsan (played excellently) hadn't been her 'sponsor', the Chanel we know today may never have been in existence. More of a quirky (but stylish) love story than the Story of Chanel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended reading!, 28 Dec 2009
This review is from: Ford County (Hardcover)
As an avid fan of the current mega writers (Coben, Deaver, Cornwell etc) I was a little surprised to see this book - made up of 7 short stories all based around Ford County. Opening the book to read the first story in a free half hour I thought I had, was hooked immediately (to the point the sun had gone down by the time I came up for air). Excellently written, perfectly 'linked', just enough characterisation (in a short story, often hard to achieve) to ensure credibility, the stories each trip along very well. Not the top class feature length novel, but definitely worth finding time for.


Sleepers [DVD] [1997]
Sleepers [DVD] [1997]
Dvd ~ Robert De Niro
Price: £2.70

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing - and thought provoking - A 'Must Watch' film, 24 Oct 2009
This review is from: Sleepers [DVD] [1997] (DVD)
Considering the all star cast, you may be fooled into thinking this is simply a high action drama. WRONG. It covers a horrifying - and all too credible - story of life for 4 young men behind bars. The 4 commit a crime and are sent to a childrens 'prison' for between 6 and 18 months. What they endure..........truly horrifying. A film which creates anger, horror, extereme emotion, challenge - and pretty much every other emotion, this film leaves you thinking about the content long after the film has ended. Whether it is a true story or not doesn't matter in a way = we know these things happened = but the strength of the movie lies in the the characters NOT over-acting, the direction being harsh, but clear and fair, and the viewer being left.......scarred.


Long Lost
Long Lost

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Put This Down!, 28 Aug 2009
This review is from: Long Lost (Hardcover)
Superfan of Mr Coben, he now outstrips the Jeffrey Deaver books. He retains his style, polish and fabulous storyline - where Mr Deaver has slowed down!

5.0 out of 5 stars Roll on Album Number 3, 28 Aug 2009
This review is from: Leave This Town (Audio CD)
Chris can do no wrong - as proven by this second album. A little 'rockier' than the first, the lyrics are no less intuitive, the melodies, no less passionate, and overall, you just want MORE - and I defy any fan not to turn up the volume on ANY of it. It is true 'music to my ears' and Mr Daughtry just goes from strength to strength. It simply amazes me that he didn't actually win the daft American TV show.
