3.0 out of 5 stars Most evil dvd 2006, 23 Mar 2011
This dvd is 14 episodes out of 27-it is someone's idea of the best of series 1,2 and 3,but no series or season is complete on it.It should have been sold or described as "The Best of Most Evil". Describing it as "Most Evil (2006) made me think it was the complete first series which premiered in that year

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful gift, 25 Dec 2009
After last years disaponting Yearbook - a hurried rehash of magazine articles - this year's edition is much better. It's full of lovely, mainly new articles and the quality of the photographs is very good. I was overjoyed to get this and would still be reading it were it not for the demands of visiting the family this Christmas. Full marks to all concerned. More of the same next year please.

5.0 out of 5 stars quite simply the most wonderful concert I have seen, 25 Dec 2008
the other night Elton rocked Manchester with this great show. I have never seen or heard anything as amazing as this. it was an absolute joy. Naturally any DVD cannot capture a performance as good as this but as a souvenir it is perfect. Until that night I had never really rated Elton but now I have to say I am a fan. What a showman he truly is.

5.0 out of 5 stars once upon a time...., 22 Aug 2008
Contains one little spoiler.
once upon a time not so long ago film makers did not have computers and the magic of, say a human head ripping itself of its shoulders, sprouting spider legs and scuttling across the floor, was done by skilled effects artists and model builders and shot in front of the camera. Unlike the films of today these effects were convincing and brilliant. they actually made the audience gasp out loud, hey they still do which is more than you can say for most CGI imagery in movies today. Am I alone in hoping that the days of Computer fakery is almost over and realism will return. The Thing is an awesome horror.

5.0 out of 5 stars a perfect movie, 3 May 2008
This review is from: Local Hero [DVD] (DVD)
Now and again there comes a film that leaps into your heart, a film to take to your desert island and a film that becomes a life long friend. Local Hero is one such film. It's an unashamedly, brilliantly British comedy following in the footsteps of the Ealing Comedies, yet like the Ladykillers etc still has universal appeal. It's the tale of loneliness, of wanting to belong somewhere and finding that place. It looks magnificent (the Scottish scenery will have you on the next train to the Highlands) and it sounds... oh the music!!!! A glorious score and what an ending. If your not smiling back the tears as Mark Knopfler's guitar sweeps you into the end credits then some thing's wrong.
Films don't get much better than this.

100 European Horror Films (BFI Screen Guides)

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous guide to euro horrors, 27 Mar 2008
If you wish to delve into Euro horror (and why wouldn't you?) this is a good informed place to start. Here Nosferatu rubs shoulders with Cannibal holocaust and Caligari meets Argento. The reviews are intelligent and respectful. Many obscure titles are mentioned including Viy (a super little Russian movie) and Dark Waters (By Mariano Baino). Most titles are now out on DVD so it's worth getting this before going shopping on Amazon. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A journey into a nightmare, 23 Mar 2008
This review is from: Whispers in the Dark (Paperback)
Jonathon Aycliffe's books no longer haunt the bookshelves these days. It's all King, Herbert and Koontz yet he is an accomplished writer and easily as frightening - if not more so. His novels are waffle free and race along at a readable rate. Pick one up and no doubt you'll be finished by bed time. Except you wont be able to sleep, not while the wind moans in the trees and shadows creep towards your bedroom door. He is a master of suspense and I long for the day when the BBC dramatise his work and bring back the ghost stories for Christmas. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars pure horror, 23 Mar 2008
This review is from: Naomi's Room (Paperback)
A truly disturbing and exceptionally well written horror story. I urge you to discover Aycliffe's novels. Why he is not up there with Herbert, King and Koontz I will never know. Start with this novel and you'll want to read the rest. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars a fantastic collection of photographs, 11 Mar 2008
Quite simply a treasure trove of historical gems. very nice if you are interested in lancashire's history. the diagrams of the stations - now simple halts (if they still exist) are fascinating. Why did we destroy our railways?

5.0 out of 5 stars Bond as it should be done, 21 Feb 2008
Don't get me wrong, I have loved the Bond films all my life and have seen them all many, many times. I have also read the books. For a long time now I have hoped that the film makers would look once again at the novels. With Casino Royale they have and the film is a classy, stylish, hard hitting masterpiece. It's great to see an almost uncertain Bond becoming the high living, world traveling gentleman thug of a killer. I have to say that even the long scenes in the casino are as thrilling as any car chase and gun fight. It's just so well done. Mention must be made of the score, David Arnold teases us throughout with the Bond theme and its only.... when it explodes into the movie and we are left without a doubt that Bond is ready to take on the world. It looks gorgeous and the camera work is mercifully free of unnecessary shaking as over used by the Bourne movies. And Daniel Craig was born to play Bond. Long may he do so.
