5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing film, 22 Sept. 2009
This review is from: God Man Dog [DVD] (DVD)
Bought on a whim ... what a truly fantastic find. Though the similarities to Amores Perros are evident, this is a far more lyrical film about what it means to be human. A couple who have just lost a baby, an invalid and a young boy both homeless, a drunk and his boxing daughter - all find that their lifes are tied and effect each other in quite significant ways. The visiuals are great, the music astonishng - my first thoughts were why can't Hollywood (and indeed the UK) make movies as good as this. Even better on second viewing as you can chart the progress of the characters, who you find yourself caring about, more deeply. if the ending is a tad open-ended, is does allow the viewer to draw their own conclusions. A belter of a movie and needs a wider audience.

2.0 out of 5 stars action drama, 1 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Breaking News [DVD] (DVD)
So-so action movie. Spoilt by a bad script that even Michael Bay would leave behind as too ridiculous. It's enjoyable enough in its own way, and the action set-pieces are good. But make sure your brain is switched off for this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to watch, 1 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Inner Senses [DVD] (DVD)
Infamous as the last movie from Leslie Cheung, and unfortunately its not terribly good. The story is contrived, the special effects are pretty atrocious, and if you know the background to the movie its really uncomfortable to watch. I'd go so far tosay give this one a miss.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unusual and enjoyable, 1 Nov. 2008
A strange little movie, similar to all those 'yuppie lost in the big city' movies of the 1980s. Funny and strange it tells of a stockbrokers nightmare day as he loses everything and tries to get it back and get back home! Well acted and directed. Worth a punt if cheap!!!!

An enjoyable enough series - though the story is a little flat. Bit too been there, done that all before feel. Not bad, but there better anime of this kind about.

2.0 out of 5 stars CG anime, 1 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Galerians: Rion (DVD) (Vinyl)
Do you like cutscenes in videogames? If not - don't watch this. The CGI in this movie has aged VERY badly - even the earlier 'Reboot' is better. If the story was stronger we could live with that - but it's not. A loud, brash sci-fi film with an unlikeable main character. Only buy if you're a dedicated fan of the Playstation game - even then you may find yourself disappointed.

Patlabor Wxiii: Movie [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

4.0 out of 5 stars anime, 1 Nov. 2008
Under-rated part of the Patlabor saga. This is the third movie which concentrates, unusually, on detectives Kusami and Hata. It's more of a monster movie that mech also. But don't let that put you off. It's very nearly as good as the first two movies - now considered classics. And the development of the two characters is well done. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed. The box set includes 2 more dvd's - disc 2 being MiniPato cartoon shorts originally shown alongside the movie. Disc 3 is loaded with tons of supplemental material.

Fantastic boxset full of great artwork. Some decent extras too - storyboards. Enjoyable old-fashioned space saga - think Star Wars meets Jules Verne!

3.0 out of 5 stars anime, 1 Nov. 2008
An enjoyable piece of space daring-do. Humerous and great characters. Spoilt slightly by lesbian scenes that have no purpose making it difficult to recommend for young children - which is a shame as this is otherwise for everyone to enjoy.

Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, 27 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Boxers (Hardcover)
A stunning selection of black and white photographs of mainly amatuer boxers grace this book. The pictures remind you of Bruce Weber, although Markus makes a greater use of black and dark lighting. A selection of short articles are also included. This book is more about the sensualness of boxing rather than boxing itself... so treat with caution if a gift for a fan of boxing!!!!
