5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly brilliant and unforgettable., 1 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Pan's Labyrinth [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Simply, a beautiful and beguiling film. Gripping, unforgettable and beautifully told, this is an "Alice" from the era of the Spanish Civil War. Combining childlike fantasies with the harsh cruelties of war and hatred, this film will charm, shock and entertain. Is there a dry eye in the house?

3.0 out of 5 stars A bitter man?, 1 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Scouting For Girls (Audio CD)
On the face of it, this album has many plus points. Catchy tunes, talented musicians and a carefree attitude. "Shes so lovely" is a great track that even the albums detractors will find difficult to banish from their heads. However, the songwriter is surely a bitter man? Most of the songs seem to be about loves lost, forgotten or left. Has this man been recently dumped? Again. Again. And again????

So, despite a great start, by the end of the album my girlfriend and I were torn between laughing and throwing the CD out the car window!!

A shame, because there's real talent here but little lyrical maturity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty much Faultless, 18 Nov. 2007
An amazing little machine which oozes style and functionality. Gimmick-free so does exactly what it is supposed to do and no more...and that is make great coffee. Requires no previous experience, just a healthy fascination with beautiful things for the kitchen, making beautiful noises. Buy, steam, froth, pour, drink and be happy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough with added humour!!, 18 Nov. 2007
A fabulous LP guide to a fabulous country. Thorough, accurate and honest reviews of everything and anything. AND, unlike other lonely planets, there is a wicked sense of humour and healthy cynicism. These guys dont take themselves too seriously!! Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 22 Mar. 2006
This review is from: Riding Giants [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
This is probably the best surf film you'll ever see. For surfers and non-surfers alike, get swept up in the passion of amazing people doing amazing things in amazing surf. Completely lacking the self indulgence of most surf movies, this study of the history of surfing and the drive that makes people like Laird Hamilton risk their lives on 60ft faces will leave you aghast. Coupled with a superb sound track, wonderful cinematography and truly insightful interviews, this incredible film will leave you speechless and aching for more.
