1.0 out of 5 stars Quite appaling!, 21 April 2004
Another overated film by the so called film 'god' Quentin Tarrentino graces our screens. However, one cannot describe how disturbingly poor this, the fourth film by QT, is.
This is mindless violence at its most mindless. Watching someone tear people limb from limb over and over again, while remaining completely unharmed was one of the worsed cinamatic sequences of all time.
Let us begin with the unfullfilling plot. Oh hang on, there is no plot. That's right, this is a film that disguises a tale of revenge, to make it possible to create 2 hours of contrived, derivtave and idiotic violence. All very well if such a film is actually entertaining, however, I can honestly say, I was waiting for the film to end from about half an hour through onwards. I was not gripped at one point and found the constant fight scenes needless and completely unbelievable.
True enough, when one goes to see a film, it is required that you take with you the ability to suspend disbelief. However, let us note two things in this film that are completely impossible; 1. that someone with no armour can survive a shot from a Cougar Magnum from point blank range! To say this is possible is completely stupid and had me wondering how for the entire film. And 2. how one person, no matter how well trained, can take on no less than 80 ninjas and win, and still have enough strength to dispatch another ninja and her body guard.
From watching this film, I noted only three things that were half decent; the cinematography, the sound track and the fact that the film ended. The cinematography is incredibly good. Use of colour and onscreen space are very sucessful and QT does a good job of making the film pleasing to the eye. However, as soon as the characters speak or another dreadful fight scene begins the audience instantly loses this sense of wonder and cinematic achievement.
In short this film is quite possibly the worst excuse for a film I have seen all year. I would rather watch The Sound of Music, continuously for 24 hours with surround sound than sit down and gaze upon this contrieved 'masterpiece' again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius!!!!!, 25 Feb. 2004
This album is non stop song writing genius from beginning to end!
Carl, Pete, John and Gary combine humour, regret and a billiant insight into city life with such brilliance it is no burden to listen again and again to every track on this superb debut album.
The sometimes out of tune clashes of guitars work so very well and vocals are weaved magically within the tune. This is a perfect blend of differing styles of music, Madness, dash of the Stones and a tiny pinch of The Strokes making a completely new genre which should be hench forth known as Libertine!!!
Trust the hype, believe it...Hell buy into it!!!
