2.0 out of 5 stars It looks and plays like a movie designed to bag a Bafta for everyone ..., 19 July 2014
This review is from: The Selfish Giant [DVD] (DVD)
Manipulative and nonsensical. The characters behave in ways which simply make no logical sense and instead the writers pull every string imaginable to evoke the sympathy of the audience. It looks and plays like a movie designed to bag a Bafta for everyone involved. The child actors were excellent but don't get conned by this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality, 26 April 2014
I initially bought a cheap laser pointer which stopped working after two days. Ultimately you get what you pay for. It is a sturdy laser pointer with high build quality and is also very powerful. It is a perfect seagull deterrent as they particularity don't like green lasers. I have successfully hit them from at least a quarter of a mile away with this laser. What's more it comes with a rechargeable battery which last for a long time. At this price it an absolute bargain.

Bought a cheap laser pointer and it lasted three days before going kaput. This on the other hand is the real deal. Its super bright and the build quality is very high. I can't believe how powerful this laser is. Comes with UK charger.

4.0 out of 5 stars cheap as chips, 29 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros:

- Fast processor.
- Tons of disk space.
- Tons of connectivity with bluetooth and wireless.
- Battery life is excellent.
- Light.

Cons:

- Plasticky build quality which make it look cheap (even though it is).
- Terrible keyboard. It is truly atrocious.
- The screen is small and the resolution looks terrible above 1024x600
- Need a memory upgrade straight out the box to make it shine.

In summary this netbook is cheap as chips and it looks it. It is super powerful and will even run stuff like Eclipse but you will end up wishing the keyboard was better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scary old-skool shooter, 10 April 2012
Old-skool shooter which is masses of fun to play. Save points are spaced along in a manner which makes each section a mini-challenge that you can put down and pick up again without having to lose too much progress. The build up of atmosphere is terrific with the elementary school (as noted elsewhere) being a sublime cranking up of dread with each corner turned. Top tip - save the rocket launcher right up to the end as it makes the final battle a breeze.

5.0 out of 5 stars The devil rides out, 12 Feb. 2011
I read this novel at face value, having never read any synopsis or analysis of it. My initial take was this is a very disturbing narrative for the people of 1824. It has elements of satire and also horror which would not surface until at least until the 70's of the last century. Did the author intend this? I am not sure. On face value I am not surprised this wasn't a hit as it is clearly critical of the church and it's structure is so strange that readers of the time would have been quite taken aback.

Reading the analysis of the novel here is quite enlightening. My mind was already blown by the horrible twist in the end but now I am doubly disturbed that perhaps the author meant this all along. Really? In 1824?

The middle section drags on a bit but I would recommend reading this. A weird timely classic which will haunt you whether you believe the subsequent take on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grows on you, 20 July 2010
This review is from: The Great Escape (Audio CD)
With the success of 'Parklife' you would be forgiven in thinking that Blur would take a step back to have a break and enjoy the high life like most of their peers. There was partying aplenty but they also kept on recording and this album is the result. Given the clout to demand brass sections and orchestras in combination with hangovers this album should be terrible but it's not. What strikes me most it that despite caning it big style they couldn't help themselves but produce amazing music. Much more dense than 'Parklife' this repays listening in a way that they haven't matched since. It's hard to pick a particular member to praise as they are all so good. Damon and Grahams songs are so strong for the most part. Alex's bass and Daves drums are simply stellar. Listen to the interplay on 'Fade Away' from Grahams dissonant slide down the guitar into the Daves powerful drums and Alex and Grahams spy-theme riffing and tell me that's not genius. It was good the trend was for songwriting which I think they more than matched but they were shooting for the stars musically and I think it was all a bit too much for the audience at the time. My favourite Blur album by miles.
