I can't really recommend this recording - if listening with headphones it sounds like it's being played in in a gale...

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the trick., 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Everything works as described - the menus aren't great - it takes a bit of working out in order to not be cycling thru every track on the card, but it is possible. Pleased with it all in all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 19 Feb. 2014
This review is from: White Tiger [DVD] (DVD)
Picked this up without researching it beforehand. It really is not worth the time, especially if you've any prior knowledge of tanks and tank battles. Not a good story, average to poor direction, it kinda just.... peters out....to an ending? Basically, it's a fantasy tank ghost story. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Also, 'official Russian entry to the Academy Awards' just shows that playful Russian sense of fun that we all know and love.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great, while the bulbs last..., 7 Feb. 2012
After 4 weeks of use, one bulb (out of 4) has stopped working and another is going dull. At this rate it will be an 'ex' heater in another month. Apart from that, does the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 11 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Drive [DVD] (DVD)
Absolutely loved this film on the big screen, and I suspect it will lose nothing on the small box. Cool, slow, intelligent with heart and soul - but if you want slam-bam explosions, a pounding soundtrack, and nano-second edits then there are other films that will satisfy you more. All the players do a great job here. A word of caution - when it gets violent, it pulls no punches.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but not a classic, 5 April 2011
This review is from: The City & The City (Paperback)
Why review if I wasn't overwhelmed by this book? Well, this is the first Mieville book I've read, purchased on the spur of the moment. I was looking at the number of rave reviews here and I honestly think that prospective readers might go in with overly high expectations.
I liked the opening chapters and was drawn in to the ideas and scenario, but then the style and writing seemed to drag after a while and I got bored. The end seems rushed, and is unsatisfactory on many levels. But I'm not a writer, what do I know? All I'm saying is, don't expect the head-rush that some of these reviewers would have you believe...

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality stuff, 24 July 2010
This review is from: Biohell (Combat-K) (Paperback)
Unlike some of the other rather po-faced reviewers I highly recomend Biohell if you are after a cracking, entertaining read. The story doesn't let up and is a continuation of the previous novel in a straightforward manner... In a story full of action and diverse characters the only minor gripe I have is that for me there was a little too much of the slapstick, but this didn't spoil the fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as some would have you believe., 24 July 2010
I bought this book a while back, having been seduced by the attractive cover and the blurb. However, I found it to be a boring read. The caracters are unconvincing and unsympathetic, especially that of Schiele himself - no real insight is given into this character. And how is it (pet hate coming up here, I admit!) that the whole book goes by with only the most cursory description of the actual process of drawing, painting and creation? In a book about an artist? A failing in most films about visual artists, incidentally. And so it is here - a flat re-telling of biographical bullet points. Sorry Lewis Crofts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great, easy to use for a beginner..., 13 July 2010
As an absolute beginner I figured I go with the good reviews. I've not been disappointed - this little tuner is easy to use and gives a great result. Just clip on as shown in the photo here and away you go!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Show!, 9 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Californication 3 (Audio CD)
There is a Season 3, to be shown in the UK soon. In fact Season 4 is already in pre-production.
Class TV, class music.
