5.0 out of 5 stars RosariesBaby., 4 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Father of Lies (Kindle Edition)
Not since Father Ted had money 'resting' in his bank account has the Catholic Church been quite so devious and dastardly. What begins as a creepy English ghost story ends in the Vatican in this exciting page turning theological fantasy. I am not a fan of Dan Brown's writing, I always found his stories so ludicrous and too fantastic. Serena Caines sensibly goes for the supernatural and the whole incredible story works a treat. Characterisation is good, especially the baddies. The horror and suspense is well written but it's her powers of description that stand out. Her Rome especially is painted in such beautiful colours. A first novel? Oh I'm impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why I love The Stranglers, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ahhh, the good ol' 'B' side, I guess it's pretty much a lost art now but back in the day these fabulous finely crafted and melodic little gems were to be found all over the place, hidden on vinyl and even cassette singles (remember them?). For me they became quite as important as Heroes, Skin Deep, Nice in Nice, Big in America etc and all the other great Stranglers' songs. The only time they came together was when I made my own compilation tapes. And now, oh this new compilation has brought a great smile to my face. Here they are, sounding great and all together even including the live tracks that turned up on singles between 83 and 91. This was such a creative period for the band and this CD has finally done them justice. This is the essential purchase for all Stranglers fans, I mean who wouldn't want the complete story of poor Vladimir? Terrific!

5.0 out of 5 stars A brief review of the film, 7 Oct. 2014
What we did on our holidays is very much in the tradition of Local Hero, Whisky Galore and Gregory's girl (yes they were all shot in wonderful scenic, Scotland) with their great quirky characters and sense of humour. I went to see this knowing nothing about it and I have to admit I fell in love with it. It's rare a whole audience laughs throughout and it's rare I get tears in my eyes. All the actors excel but it's the children who are incredible. What stunning, natural, performances they give and what comic timing they possess. The scenes with their Grandfather are amazing. Oh cinema is rarely as good as this. Look go see it but try to avoid spoilers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tasty region free release., 20 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A tasty region free release of a film I have grown to respect. Oh this is a glorious Blu Ray. Who'd honestly have thought that we'd be see this masterpiece of horror looking so good. When I was a lad living in Yorkshire, after working 76 hours a day at 'mill I'd pop by our local video shop in't Penistone and borrow Cannibal Holocaust. Funny enough bits would be missing, and then one day, after PC Pillock and the moral majority sent the SAS in to the shop, it was gone. It became my quest to hunt down this film, burrowing in piles of rubbish to find even a tenth generation VHS copy of a betamax copy of a Video 2000 master. Watching it was like having cataracts. 'e those were the days, try telling the kids and they won't believe you. Now we have it looking like it was shot yesterday. By gum Grindhouse has done the film proud. You can even watch it with the Whippet killing scenes removed.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Friday night in the 70's all over again., 20 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oh this is a good release, not only have Network released a terrific looking blu ray of a favorite Hammer film of mine but they've added a great episode of Thriller (Once the Killing Starts staring Angharad Rees) on the disc as well. It's like staying up late on a Friday night in the '70's all over again. I hope this trend will continue in their horror releases. Nice one Network.

I thought, I wonder if I can get a funny birthday card for a friend who likes cats and Game of Thrones? Seconds later after searching on Amazon I found one. We indeed live in a time of miracles! It's a nice card too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Found footage it might be but..., 9 April 2014
This review is from: The Borderlands [DVD] (DVD)
This is the business. At last a superior found footage film that really works well.The camera wobble is kept to a minimum and unlike Paranormal Inactivity and Devil's Due it doesn't leave you with a migraine. I found it funny and above all really frightening, please do yourself a favour and watch it with the lights out. If you fancy a traditional British Ghost story then this creeping tale of terror is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly wonderful (but why no blu ray?), 22 Nov. 2013
I was three days old when Dr Who began and it's played a big part in making me the person I am today (although I do plan to regenerate before this week is out). I was overjoyed watching the show last night. It was unashamed nostalgia and absolutely lovely. Christmas has indeed come early for us fans of The Doctor. I have just one question of the BBC, why oh why isn't there a blu ray release? The show looks exquisite and demands it. Please BBC I want to spend more money.
