4.0 out of 5 stars One tiny omission, 25 Sep 2006
This review is from: What Not to Drive (Hardcover)
A great read but it's probably best to wait for the updated edition which will include "300mph Jet Car With Wobbly Wheels".

1.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite films utterly ruined, 27 Feb 2003
This review is from: City of Lost Children [DVD] (DVD)
Sorry to say that this is a 'me too' review. I saw this film a long time ago, with the original French dialogue and subtitles, and it blew me away. The acting is astonishing, especially from the little girl, whose voice penetrates the soul, an incredibly powerful performance. I don't want to belittle any of the other performances, which are just as good, and the sum total is mind-bending - you are swept away into a totally different, new, and fantastical world, which is by turns both utterly dreamlike and utterly real and engaging.
However, all this is swept away on the DVD version which SUCKS DONKEY POOP in a very big way. The voice acting is weak beyond comprehension. Did the voice actors never see the film with the sound playing? Where did they get these people? They are certainly not actors.
This is definitely one of my top ten favourite films of all time, but the DVD is one of my top ten cinematic disappointments. DO NOT BUY THE DVD! IT'S A TRAIN WRECK!
Maybe one day someone will bring out the PROPER version of the DVD. Maybe they'll put some decent extras on it too!

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid at all costs, 2 Oct 2001
This review is from: Anarchy Online (PC) (Video Game)
This has to be the most shocking example yet of a game that is blatantly nowhere ready for release, being pushed onto the market WAY to early. It is riddled with bugs that get WORSE rather than better as the developers desperately shoehorn 'firefight' solutions in. Most of the content is missing, such as trade skills, career paths etc.
It's shocking. Just shocking.
