5.0 out of 5 stars Just brilliant!, 26 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Shoot 'em Up [DVD] (DVD)
I'm still grinning...

You could absolutely hate action movies and yet happily sit through this hilarious, implausible, impossible, nutty film. You've gotta have a sense of humour to enjoy it though.

You will constantly be exclaming "what the...." under your breath.


Forget popcorn...carots are on the menu. Thousands of them!

The film is absolutely barking mad, what's more, it manages to sustain it's bonkerness right up to the wire; and then the finale outdoes itself with a whole new dimension of utter ludicrousness.

Raving lunacy the whole way through...blooming marvelous!

5.0 out of 5 stars Please! please! please!... Learn to take a joke!, 17 April 2006
This review is from: The Eminem Show (Audio CD)
If you are not automatically put off by his unashamedly controversial choice of words, and if you have a sense of humour, you will be struck by how clever this man is! He doesn't waste a word!

Mathers seems more interested in taking a moment to try to understand what is wrong with everyone; if his music is so utterly against the grain, why do so many people feel the need to buy his records (How is he any different to Elvis?) Why do people confuse "Hip-Hop with real life"? And why should he have to relinquish his freedom of speech just because he is saying something provocotive?

Yet while he asks these questions, he simultaneously expresses his understanding that from a white, middle-class point of view it is scary to see your kids walking around and listening to eminem swearing away. He accepts that while he doesn't believe he should be scape goated for the actions of his fans, he does get affected by what his songs make people do. He concedes that it's nuts how quickly he got to the top, he feels he "sold his soul to the devil" in order to give his daughter the life he never had. and in perhaps his bravest song, he proclaims his absolute devotion to his daughter in "Halie's song".

Basically if you like to mock our current political climate, then you will probably enjoy having a laugh while you listen to this album. If you think the political climate at the moment is all fine and dandy, and/or you have no sense of humour or if "beep" words make you want to cover your ears and whistle loudly then this album probably isn't for you.

For me, this is a very funny and talented man who has a lot to say. we need more people like him!
