5.0 out of 5 stars Kakkamaddafakking Great!, 17 April 2012
This review is from: Hest (Audio CD)
What's there not to like about this band? Instantly memorable melodies? Check. A varied exhibition of musical styles encompassing raggae, pop and calypso? Check. An excellent live show together with choreographed-dancing backing singers dressed as sailors? Check. I have seen KMF 3 times live now, and listened to this album on a countless number of occasions and it's never failed to improve my mood. This Norwegian band from Bergen have put the fun back into pop music, without compromising on musicianship or live performance. BUY THE ALBUM AND GO SEE THEM ALIVE... NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Women can be funny too!, 28 Mar 2012
Yes, women can be funny too! Before this film, it seemed as if the cream of female comedy acting talent was consigned to amusing cameos while the male counterparts stole the show (see collective back catalogues of Messrs Stiller, Pegg and Apatow, the works of Messrs Sandler, James and Green are excluded from this analysis on accounts of good taste). Now with Bridesmaids we have five outstanding female performances, the hilarious and perfectly judged script co-written by Kirsten Wiig (who also stars) the ideal platform to display a wealth of comedic ability. Please let there be a sequel and soon.

Drive [DVD]
Drive [DVD]
Dvd ~ Ryan Gosling
Offered by simply-well-priced
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Curious, 28 Mar 2012
This review is from: Drive [DVD] (DVD)
A curious work. Drive starts out as a sparse-dialogue art house flick, with Gosling and Mulligan competing as to who can say the least in any given scene, mawkish expressions dominating. As the story progresses and the sound of Gosling's supercharged saloon gets louder, director Nicolas Winding Refn moves into more conventional violent action territory. What stops Drive descending into another forgettable thriller, is the well paced story, which has a sufficient number of twists and turns to keep the viewer on the edge of his seat throughout. Awful soundtrack though - some songs should've never left the 80's.

5.0 out of 5 stars When Wes Anderson ruled the world, 27 Mar 2012
My favourite film. Maybe. My favourite Wes Anderson film. Definitely. Before his obsession with whimsy eat up everything in his creative wake, Anderson's film about one teenager's crush (brilliantly played by Jason Schwartzman - he too has never been better) on his high school teacher (Olivia Williams) is a joy to behold, and that's even before taking into account the hangdog perfection of Bill Murray's millionaire love rival. A superbly chosen soundtrack accompanies set piece after set piece, which together with excellent dead pan dialogue makes this film a delight. Whimsical? Yes, but whimsical with a heart and thank god not whimsical for whimsical's sake (see the rest of Anderson's oeuvre in ascending date order).

The Girl Who Played with Fire (Millennium Trilogy Book 2)
The Girl Who Played with Fire (Millennium Trilogy Book 2)
by Stieg Larsson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Exposing the underbelly, 13 Mar 2012
Stieg Larsson is not your typical thriller-on-the-beach writer. What this book and the rest of the series offers, is an exciting yet depressingly accurate insight into the flow of crime that coarses through the veins of Sweden today and those who have the misfortune to be caught up with in it, from the victims to the police, security firms and journalists tasked with catching the perpetrators, while the character uniting those disparate elements is the queen of all anti-heroines; Lisbeth Salander. Never before has such a flawed, awkward yet inspirational female character been created, her multiple strengths and weaknesses far more convincing than the countless other male leads that populate the crime genre. Suffice to say after reading this book I was desperate to read the next installment in the series and could not wait for the next time I made it to the beach.

The Map and the Territory
The Map and the Territory
by Michel Houellebecq
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.39

4.0 out of 5 stars Has he mellowed?, 12 Mar 2012
After the mind-numbingly boring Possibility of an Island, The Map and the Territory is a welcome return to form of the Twenty-First Century's leading misanthrop. Saying that, for Houellebecq this tome is relatively upbeat, certainly his lightest work since the enjoyable novella Lanzarote. The Map and the Terroritory finds Houellebecq making his own critique of the conceptual art world and the fatuous who populate it. The book follows the professional life of a millionaire Parisian artist called Jed, who approaches "the writer" Michel Houellebecq for a portrait as part of his latest exhibtion. Through this character Houellebecq pokes fun at both himself and also his media persona, an interesting exercise of art imitating life. Though he appears to have mellowed, the Enfant Terrible of French literature still has a capacity to shock, in particular when describing his character's own grisely demise and a surprisingly heart-warming description of Bischon dogs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Schadenfreude, 12 Mar 2012
This review is from: Atomised (Paperback)
A bio-chemist friend recommended this book to me while we tanned our pasty frames on the beach in Barcelona in 2001. As amongst others, Atomised covers themes including genetic engineering, I gave credos to the recommendation. Along with a number of good tips his given me over the years, he wasn't wrong. Atomised is the finest book by Houellebecq, an existential misanthropic tale of two brothers, one a genetic engineer, the other a childhood-scarred teacher with an unhealthy interest in eugenics. They lead an uneasy relationship with themselves and the outside world, only briefly spending time together when their mother passes away. The book follows their separate lives from childhood to adulthood, together with the women they share those lives with during different periods. Atomised is the perfect book for men who want a bit of science along with the smut. There's plenty of sex, humour, science and philosophy, the excellent English translation by Frank Wynne written in clear and deceptively straight forward prose.
