Best of Bond... James Bond
Best of Bond... James Bond
Offered by Bee-Entertained
Price: 5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars ??, 22 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't get this cd. It celebrates fifty years of Bond and on the 50th year we get Skyfall, the best Bond film ever with one of the best theme songs ever. Yet it isn't on this. There's even a space on the girls hip on the front cover where the Skyfall title would fit! It's as if it was made to have it there then someone decided to take it out. I bought this as it seems to be the most complete one we're going to get in a while but being annoyed and a geek, i ended up buying the Adele single and sticking the disc under this one in the case so i could have all the songs together.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best piece of music ever created., 4 Feb 2011
This review is from: Brave (Audio CD)
I won't be long because if i get going i'll be here till tomorrow morning. Brave is simply the most brilliant album ever made and a totally life-changing experience if you give it the time it deserves. After my daughter, my mum (and my health i suppose) it's been the most important thing to affect my life and i really wish Marillion could be recognised for what they are, one of the best bands in the world. Thanks for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Divine!, 14 Nov 2010
I am a massive horror film fan and this is definately one of my favourites. It seems that the people who have watched the Return trilogy are divided between those who highly regard the first two while shunning this, and those who think no.3 is the superior film. I think that one of the reasons this is better is because it does try and do something different with the formula, whilst still in keeping with the franchises' over-the-top style, fast-paced action and extreme gore.

Personally i think horror should be played straight anyway, but this is definatley not too serious a film so as to completely detach itself from the first two. Sequels usually fail because they try to replicate the originals and the best ones are always those that have changed things and progressed. I don't see how comparisons can be made with Halloween 3 as that had absolutely nothing to do with the originals whereas with ROTLD3 this is simply not the case, it is just a development.

The ideas of pain, death, love and desire in the film are explored well, and although the acting seems a bit crap at the beginning, the descent of Julie into undeath and her subsequent battle to suppress her bloodlust for the sake of not harming the man(boy?!) she loves is very good. All the scenes in the sewer are exciting and quite disturbing, probably made more so by the trashy looking 80s style special effects(CGI will never re-create this!) along with the emotional significance of Julie's actions when she finally kicks some ass. Also, the final scenes between the main couple are actually quite heart-wrenching. To me anyway.

A wonderful horror film overall which i felt i needed to defend as i really don't understand the negative reviews attached to it.
And if you don't care for anything i've written so far then please, if you're a hetero man or lesbian, watch the film if only to see the lovely Mindy Clarke in action - she is divine :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody wonderfull, 20 Feb 2010
First time i've written a review but i've just re-watched the film after quite a few years and felt compelled.

This film is more than just about book-bashing to kids. It inspires both children and adults to appreciate the magic of our own imaginations and the ability we have to take the work of somebody else and build upon its ideas to create our own. That the kid in this film likes to read is not as important as the fact that his involvement in the story within the book inspires him to explore the power of his creative mind and use it in a positive way. This is something that can happen through whatever medium, whether it be literature, film, art, or music, it doesn't matter.

Through the loss of his mother and subsequent re-naming of the Empress, Bastian finds the strength to overcome the pain he is experiencing in the real world by allowing himself to believe in his imaginary one. The film's references to Bastian's dead mum are subtle and un-sentimental and the scene with his dad at the start is completely believable. These things are what i think gives the film it's emotional kick and why i think adults should watch it as well.

When my daughter is old enough to sit through a whole film with me without figiting then this will be the first one i will pull out and watch with her! Forget the sequels though, they completly miss the point.
