1.0 out of 5 stars A girlie fantancy film, 2 Jan 2010
This review is from: Dorian Gray [DVD] (DVD)
I cannot believe people rate this film it appears to be mainly young girls who fancy the main character and feel that a films quality and worth is based on how sexy the main character is and if they fancy him.
The film is basically soft porn and is based around how many people the main character can have sex with (female/male) in different ways,
The Acting is not bad and some of the characters have acting quality.
I certainly do not believe as some reviewers have stated that this film is in the spirit of Oscar Wilde's intent.
I watched this film as i love the original and feel this film is just another excuse to exploit the moment,i.e main character who is a sex symbol in the eyes of lots of young girls, a film that they can push the 15 certificate in regards to its sexual content.
i cannot believe some people have read Oscar Wilde (one or two once or twice) books and feel that they know is intent and that this film embodies everything he hoped.
if you are expecting an intelligent film based on the original do not bother if you are of a certain age a certain sex then great you will find the main character sexy and think this is why you were born...

1.0 out of 5 stars they do not deserve to stay in business, 10 Jun 2009
Basically, unit faulty after 6 months battery needed after nearly an hour on a premium rate number return was organized,after receiving unit back still faulty so sent away again,on return still faulty,sent away again,this time on return it as a new fault,all this time you have to pay for the postage to send out the unit at around £13 special delivery,so Trading Standards are now involved...

2.0 out of 5 stars self indulgent, 5 Nov 2003
This review is from: Blemish (Audio CD)
I have being a David sylvian fan since his departure from Japan, which I felt was a well chosen move. His most recent album I felt at first was hard to understand, in the respect of was this album a serious peice of work or just a piss take to see how much is devoted fans would take. I do not wont to seem negative about his outstanding abilities as a musician because I have being a semi professional musician for 19 years and owe quite a lot to David sylvian as far as my style and experimentations in to most aspects of music have gone,This album though seems as if it as just being chucked together in a matter of hours, disjointed and out of tune guitars, awful whining lyrics about shopping,this album is self indulgence to the extreme and i was sadly dissapointed at not having more of David sylvians music to enjoy.
this album is not a great peice of work but many will disagree with me but please dont think i am undermining david sylvian as an artist in any way,he is an outstanding artist and i am personly glad he wrote the albums he did becouse if he had not i do not think that i would have wrote some of the music that i have, especialy the more atmospheric ambient material.
regards wayne.
