5.0 out of 5 stars Brutal - really really brutal, 25 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Devil Next Door (Paperback)
If you like brutal, you will love this. The literary equivalent of a Saw film, but it doesn't take breathers between death scenes like a Saw film

5.0 out of 5 stars Great looking watch, 25 Feb 2013

It has a very big face, and the display is a red-y pink. Either of those things may put some men off, but if you don't feel deterred, I would recommend purchasing. A giveaway at 35.

5.0 out of 5 stars A criminally under-rated 80s action movie, 7 Jan 2013
This review is from: Cobra [DVD] [1986] (DVD)
I love it when mainstream critics over-think an action laced, body-count driven movie. This is one of my top action movies, but the perception at the time was that COBRA didn't do as well as it should have. Lets put a gun to that. It grossed about $12.5m on its opening weekend, which was at the time, the largest opening weekend in the history of Warner Brothers. It then wound up making circa $50m domestically and around $160m worldwide. For a flick that cost $25 million to make, it did pretty well, and after that it cleaned up on the rental market.

Sly snarls his way through 90 minutes of unfiltered, adrenalin-fueled violent action, pitted against a nasty, ugly, spitting baddie. In parts it feels a little like a slasher movie, and it is the perfect antidote for those among us who never really warmed to the family friendly action movies of the 90s where the likes of Will Smith wise-cracked his way to a PG rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars As scary and unsettling as TV horror gets, 7 Jan 2013
The first series was good. It meandered at times, but it also had some genuinely brilliant moments in it. Season 2 is very much the same, except it meanders much less, and the genuinely brilliant moments come thick and fast.

There are so many different horror stories and genres covered, all entwined to produce a compelling second series. Even genres you think have been exhausted over the years pack a big punch, such as the serial killer central thread, and there is an excellent exorcism sequence.

Highly recommended for horror fans everywhere!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, can't believe there are some negative reviews, 11 Jan 2010
This review is from: Meltdown (Hardcover)
Ben Elton uses the credit crunch as a backdrop for a book about "greed." The dialogue is sharp and funny, and the book follows a group of ultra-successful University friends through the late 90s up to present day. Anyone hoping for a thriller that represents an in-depth examination into the mechanics behind the financial meltdown would be better reading The Credit Crunch Conspiracy. This book is an interesting, amusing character piece, and is exactly what you would expect from Ben Elton covering a subject of this type.
