Three Wee Muckers
Three Wee Muckers
by Christopher Whiteside
Edition: Paperback
Price: 3.62

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Lovely, 27 May 2014
This review is from: Three Wee Muckers (Paperback)
This was the last book in the Belfast Mens SupportING Men Book Club and I was blown away, by the book cheeky! The story reminded me of Tolstoy or Dostevestky and the art work that of a small child. Alll in all the best book I have ever read aprt from Cheryl Cole's Autobiography which Cheryl was good enough to sign for me after I camped outside her house, what a babe! Anyway have to dash, do yourself a favour and buy this book you won't regret it but you might not read.

2.0 out of 5 stars SO much potential.., 20 Jun 2008
This review is from: Big Nothing [DVD] (DVD)
As you can see from my rating I didn't particularly like this film, it felt like the first draft of the script had been produced in the hope the audience might forget the glaringly obvious plot holes present in nearly every scene . There are glimmers of brilliance, notably from Simon Pegg, but these are quickly diminshed by the nonsensical script. For a comedy like this to work it must be believable, whereas this simply goes from one implausible scene to the next.

Rent, Do NOT buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Resident Evil 4 meets Gears of war + a little Drakes Fortune, 3 April 2008
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Dark Sector (PS3) (Video Game)
Those familiar with the above games will notice the similarities straight away, this of course in no bad thing, they are amazing games.

The real Unique Selling point is the Glaive, thrown using R2 it takes heads off, collects items and can utilise environmental elements such as fire and electricity. This is a lot of fun and when used with the hand guns some very stylish kills are achieved.

There is a shop option similar to Res 4 where you can purchase new weapons and upgrade existing ones and the save function is well implemented.

The only negative is at times the close quarters combat with the infected can be sloppy,you'll find yourself running away to throw the glaive as they swarm round you.

Overall an excellent game at an attractive launch price, perfect to fill the gap between Resident Evil 5 and Gears 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT, 13 May 2006
This review is from: Love Actually [DVD] [2003] (DVD)

Another fantastic British romantic comedy. With a whole host of actors including alan rickman, rowan atkinson, hugh grant, emma thompson, liam neeson and keira knightly to name a few, this is a charming and at times hilarious film.

It is set around christmas which in my opinion just adds to the appeal.

If you like a good British Comedy then you'll love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good night's entertainment, 13 May 2006
This review is from: Four Brothers [DVD] (DVD)
OK so it's not going to win any oscars and you may doubt the relationships at times but this is a good movie. If you're looking for a good night in with an entertaining and at times quite powerful action/ revenge movie, you can't go wrong.

The only thing that i disliked was the ending, to me it was anticlimatic, with the biggest action sequence having occured beforehand. However this still rocks and i recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 20 Mar 2006
This review is from: Domino [DVD] (DVD)
Bloody brilliant, the beautiful keira knightly is domino the sexy and tough young woman who never really fitted in. She stumbles across an ad for bounty hunters and away we go.
Action, sex, swearing, it's got the lot, Buy it now!
