The Mothman Prophecies [DVD] [2002]
The Mothman Prophecies [DVD] [2002]
Dvd ~ Richard Gere
Offered by DVDBayFBA
Price: £2.89

4.0 out of 5 stars creepy atmospheric film, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
it ends rather abruptly. otherwise it is a good film with good performances all round and is quite thought provoking and mildly scary at times. the way it all ties together at the end regarding the prophecies is well done, and the fact that it is based on true events and sightings of the mothman adds to the intrigue.

4.0 out of 5 stars good, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
the best ones were under the red hood and mask of the phantasm. batman year one is a good story but the sound engineering is not good, the music is not loud enough in the mix so it does not seem like a proper film. the mystery of the batwoman was ok but the music lets it down when compared to mask of the phantasm. the gotham knight series is quite atmospheric but lacks good plots.

4.0 out of 5 stars good art good story but morally ambiguous hero, 9 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Warlord of Mars TP (Paperback)
this book has very good artwork like the dejah thoris books do. it is generally well written aswell. the plot has a few layers to it so is better than expected. dejah thoris comes off as more the damsel in distress rather than the feisty warrior of the series dedicated to her. i prefer that side to her, rather than this portrayal that john carter must protect and rescue all the time. carter's scathing descriptions of the green martians are amusing, but he himself is a morally ambiguous character, sometimes needlessly killing people and allowing the zodangan people to be massacred by his allies. maybe he is to be viewed in the spirit of the times... the characters are all near enough naked so having it a mature reader only book, one would have expected some sex scenes to be included, but there were none, which was rather disappointing. otherwise its an entertaining, well designed and executed book.

4.0 out of 5 stars good artwork quite good story i suppose, 6 Mar. 2012
this book has very good artwork, the figures are well drawn and the colouring is very good. the only criticism i have is that these men would not be able to concentrate on fighting battles when the women are running around practically naked, so there might as well have been some sex scenes in it too to make it more realistic lol. The story is quite interesting and not all of the characters are one dimensional eg dor valian.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as part 1., 6 Mar. 2012
The artwork is very good, the figures are drawn very well. I particularly enjoyed Dejah Thoris being almost naked all the time lol. However I think it highly unrealistic that all these men around her would not be trying to have sex with her or at least chat her up. I think they should put some sex in the next one as she and all the men are running around practically naked anyway. The story on this one was weak compared with the volume 1, and the script was sometimes not explained for example the pirate chief seems baffled as to why dejah thoris calls him a moon pirate, but his reaction is not explained. I think it could gone a bit more in depth as to why the 'black' martians look down on the red and green martians, but the story instead focused on the action. Overall it is saved by the artwork.


The Ice Opinion
The Ice Opinion
by Ice T.
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars entertaining and thought provoking, 6 Mar. 2012
This review is from: The Ice Opinion (Paperback)
i enjoyed this book and the viewpoints that ice t has on the subjects he talks about, often illustrating the hypocrisies of society in america (which being in the UK one can also relate to). I found his chapter on religion very enlightening and correct in my opinion. I don't know if some of the advice he gives on relationships btween men and women would work though lol, but otherwise all of it rang true for me. If you are an open minded person then this is a book for you. If you are closed minded and conservative then you would probably be offended by this book, but then i guess the truth hurts.


The Butlerian Jihad: Legends of Dune
The Butlerian Jihad: Legends of Dune
by Kevin J. Anderson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.08

2.0 out of 5 stars badly written and conceived, 6 Feb. 2012
This book seems to have been rushed. The Prelude to Dune series was better as the characters thought more about situations and other people's motivations. This book seems to have missed out alot of details and the characterization is one-dimensional and simplistic. It cannot be compared to Frank Herbert's deep, thought provoking prose. The writers did quite a good job with the Prelude series but this should not have been printed until they re-wrote it better. They decide to wipe out all life on earth with a nuclear strike because humans have been killed by the machines there, bu what about all the other species on the planet? There is no mention of them. Having Holtzman be a prick is a good idea though. The titans' history is dwelt on enough, though I expect they will do another cash-in series on that. Like how George Lucas messed up Star Wars with his rubbish prequel films, these books are messing up Dune. I got my copy off here for 1 pence plus postage. Don't spend anymore on it than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good album to smoke weed to, 9 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Iii (Temples Of Boom) (Audio CD)
i used to blaze weed to this with my friends and when u were suitably stoned this album sounded amazing, the way it is mixed makes total sense and the intros to some tracks with the sitars etc are perfectly timed for ur mind to adjust to the next track. also the interludes could invoke visions of strange stuff with their eerie piano riffs and echoing opera singers. now i no longer smoke weed as it drove me paranoid but this album still bumps and makes sense.

4.0 out of 5 stars good but some music should have been included, 26 May 2011
this is a very good score but i think they should have added some more of the film score that they have cut out here. like the factory bit , in the film it doesnt start like this there is some piano build up b4.
