4.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone, 28 Dec 2010
This review is from: Primer [DVD] (DVD)
As I state, this film is not for everyone.
It is quite technical and very very low budget.

I loved it for the following reasons ..

It is different
It is very thought provoking
You will almost certainly need to watch it twice
Time travel is life's biggest mystery

Watch it when you have time to really concentrate and enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars AVOID like the plague, 26 July 2010
A tip for finding a better film than this.

1. Type in any random words in amazon.
2. The first result that is a film rent or buy
3. watch that film because it will be better than this.

It is not romantic, it is not funny, it has no action, it has no suspense

Good points: Turn the sound off and Jen Aniston looks hot
Bad Points: Everything else

1.0 out of 5 stars I just don't get it !, 28 Jun 2010
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
I will make this short (like the game)

I wanted to like this game, read the reviews and watched some videos on it. I got the game and enjoyed the couple of hours playing the first 4 missions. But hang on a minute ... that was it ??? No more missions.

Okay, so I tried the online mode that everybody states is fantastic. I must be missing something, I thought it was rotten. I have to accept that if hundreds of people think the online is great then something must have not been working for me because it was the worst and most boring online game I have played.

I admit to being a big MW and MW2 fan but wanted to try something else. Sadly this has been sold already.

1.0 out of 5 stars The afterbirth from Borat, 30 Dec 2009
This review is from: Bruno [DVD] (DVD)
Imagine a gorgeous baby being produced and calling it Borat. Then imagine someone having a laugh by giving a name to the Afterbirth. Well that film is Bruno.

When you are at the cutting edge of comedy like Cohen, unfortunately some material just dosen't work. This is that work.

Be warned, don't assume that because you liked Ali G and Borat that you will like this .. most will not.

Watch Da Ali g Show - Da Compleet First Seazon [ widescreen ]

or Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan [2006]

Avoid this

1.0 out of 5 stars Dont believe the reviews, 29 Dec 2009
This review is from: A Christmas Story (DVD)
Warning, dont waste next Christmas Eve watching this film like I did.

Plus Points:

A funny clip of a child being forced into a snow suit
Its not a long film !!


It is not funny
It is not heart warming
It has no Xmas message.

If you want funny then go for Home Alone, Elf, Bad Santa (depending on taste)
If you want a family movie then Miracle on 34th, Scrooge, and any other are better.

Be warned

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect !!!, 19 July 2007
Ok - to start with

The negatives ..

Instructions useless - perseverance needed
Getting to the video convert software complicated.

The positives ..

Fantastic price
Great sound quality, not bad through supplied ear plugs but great through a decent pair.
Video quality great - Once you find the video conversion software, quality not bad at all
Images great quality for screen size.
Radio not tested
Phone book not used.

In conclusion ..

This is a mass storage device so you can store anything from word docs to sound files on it - cheaper than most 2GB pen drives.
Great for music, videos pics.
Best of all ... the price 25 ish !!!! I know you can get all the these features on many ipods etc. but you would be hard pushed to find anything better for 25. Money very well spent

2.0 out of 5 stars Bowling is a joke - for fun and kids only., 13 July 2006
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This game could and should have been so much better.

Good points.

Easy to pick up with half a brain, arcade style cricket action.

Two player much better than pretty awfull one player.

Batting is reasonably good.

Bad Points.

THE BOWLING. Unfortunatley whoever designed the game took no relevance to how cricket is actually played and what would normally be a good or bad ball. Bowl a good length ball with any type of bowler and be prepared to be hit for a boundary. Bowl constantly on or around yorker length (which you can acheive with no skill from any bowler) and you will get wickets or dot balls almost every ball.

Dont bother with slips, no matter how you bowl you will get maybe one slip catch per 50 wickets.

The confidnece levels for the bowler goes up and down for very little reason and has very little effect anyway.

Run outs. You can only throw at the wicket keepers end ?? Makes it a bit silly at times.


Fun fro kids up to the age of 12 but beyond that no challenge. Try to vary you bowling and you will lose so games become tedious.

Buy it cheap but if you are a proper cricket fan, wait for a cricket game far more in line with the quality of other sports games such as PES or Madden . THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT.
