Sinister 2 [Blu-ray] [2015]
Sinister 2 [Blu-ray] [2015]
Dvd ~ Shannyn Sossamon
Price: £14.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Critics got it wrong, as I liked it, 29 Aug. 2015
Sinister 2 is a 2015 American supernatural horror movie. It is a follow up to a hugely successful Sinister, the first instalment. It features a new cast and setting. The story is centred on a mother and his two son based in a rural and isolated farmhouse. The two sons encounter experience with ghostly children, who appear to be tormenting and brainwashing ideas into their heads. A footage shows some sickening and appalling killings taking place of families. These footage are quite distrusting which some viewers find. The farmhouse appears to be haunted by activities as you are about to find out. There are plenty of edge of seat moments. The suspense levels build up well. I am in disagreements with critics this time. It is a descent horror movie. I quite liked it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun and silly, 16 Aug. 2015
Pixels is a typical Adam Sandler's movie. It is a movie filled with comedy, charm and some romance. The opening scene starts in 1982. Arcade machines was a popular activity during the decade. It relieves the childhood days of four lads. These lads known to be experts at arcade machines. The main characters featured are Sam, Will, Ludlow and Eddie. It features well known computer icons such as Pacman and Donkey Kong. The film show present day events involving an alien force declaring war on planet earth using computer characters. It is up to the gamers to use their skills for defeating the computer forces sweeping planet earth. The storyline is silly. The whole point is meant to be deliberately silly. It is a type of movie that will not be everyone cup of tea. Adam Sandler’s forte is playing comical characters. On reflection, I would give it 3 stars. If you like comedy and into computer game in a movie, then this is one for you. I enjoyed it as a whole. I would not watch it again if I am being honest. Watching once is sufficient.


The Nation's Favourite 80s Number Ones
The Nation's Favourite 80s Number Ones
Price: £9.50

5.0 out of 5 stars 80s music at its best, 14 Aug. 2015
I love 80s music. Raised in the decade as a child watching cartoons and dancing to the music on disco floor. The tunes are so memorable like Come on Elieen, Billie Jean, The Reflex, True, Never gonna give you up and so on. The Cd offers 60 tracks of the decade to listen timelessly and relieve the nostalgic days of the decade. The music will always have a special place in my life. An ideal place for a disco and dance. Nothing can beat 80s music. It is feel good and great music. I love it. This is a perfect cd for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stick to the original, 17 July 2015
Personally, I am not a fan of remakes. I feel sticking to the original is better and you cannot beat it. Poltergist new version proves my point. I found the movie confused, rushed and ridiculous. Story features a family moving to a house haunted by evil spirits. The young girl gets processed by the sprits. Similar plot to the original. It lacks tension, lacks excitement and poorly executed. The ending is rather abysmal and silly. Hollywood should not make too many remakes, unless it can deliver. If you are fan of Poltergist, I would stick to that and avoid this completely. It is absolutely awful. Only gets one mark out of five.

2.0 out of 5 stars A victim of false expectaions and hype, 13 Jun. 2015
Was it worth queuing up in large numbers in a cinema hall? Show after show sold out quickly. The car park was fully parked, making it a long walk for me to the cinema hall. Was it worth the hassle? Does it match up to its expectations and hype? On reflection, I would say no to each question raised. Jurassic World will no way beat the original Jurassic Park released in 1993. I prefer Jurassic Park than the new release . The original version consist of a strong cast, depth in storyline and high educational content.

Unfortunately, I cannot offer much positive praise for Jurassic World. I applaud the idea of a dinosaur park by exploring their vast habitats. The ideas and concepts are interesting and fascinating, but needed a different angle than glory scenes and extensive use of CGI. There is a lack of depth and substance featured in the storyline. It mirrors the story similar to Gozilla, featuring a vicious predator. To me, this is a familiar site. Terrified visitors fearing for their lives in a park. In a nutshell, the plot is based around one predator and the park is on high alert. To me, there is nothing spectacular about this. There is hardly any education aspects to the movie, which I expected. Learning about each dinosaur spices that evolved millions years ago would be more appealing. Jurassic World is categorised as a pop corn movie as opposed to a high quality movie of what I expected of exploring intellectual contents using experts and in-depth analysis. The late Richard Attenborough added credibility to the original one as an expert and so this Jeff Goldblum and Sam O Neill. The dialogues between character lack sophistication and annoyingly cheesy at times. Chris Pratt's is a little lost for me in context of the plot.The CGI overpowers the film for a large proportion as opposed to quality in storyline. I am not faulting the CGI. The attention of each dinosaur species is impressive. Storyline and depth weigh greater importance as a finished product. The balance is completely wrong. The characters are poorly developed. The characters are uninspiring and not engaging at all. The ending appears to be rushed. It felt the script writers are depleted with ideas. It dragged on, lacking a killer punch.

I think Hollywood is losing the plot at present. The industry is bombarded with remakes and sequels. Rebooting an original film to the 21st century is questionable for me, as they never beat the original. Jurassic World prove to be disappointing for me. It fails to wow me at all. 2 stars is my reflection of the film. I am being brutally honest whenever I write a movie review. Stick to the original as it is miles better. This is another victim of false expectations and hype.

5.0 out of 5 stars Murray continues to impress me as an author, 16 May 2015
This review is from: War Babies (Paperback)
Ann Murray's forte is writing historical fiction. War Babies is another great piece of historical fiction I enjoyed. The tone is straight away set as it about a daughter Rachael and mother Peggy living in the streets of Birmingham. Set in the backdrop of World War 2, the novel tells the story of Rachael, raised single handely by the mother Peggy. Life proved to be an uphill struggle, as you are about to find out. Plenty of hardships endured. The background of Rachael's character is interesting and intriguing. It tells us about the relationship with the mother. Romance blossom as Racheal meets a lad Danny. How does Racheal life transform since meeting thr lad? The novel deeply looks at how the war transformed lives. It is unfolded in a drama. It vividly captures the events of what life was like during the war for ordinary folks at Birmingham. The characters are well developed and engaging. The story is very well written and easy to follow. It is filled with emotions. The author knows how to draw us info the characters. Murray deliever another great piece of historical fiction. I have developed a strong liking for the author. She writes stories that stay in your mind, which is a strong quality I look for in an author.


Chapter and Verse - New Order, Joy Division and Me
Chapter and Verse - New Order, Joy Division and Me
by Bernard Sumner
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A great music autobiography, 9 May 2015
Bernard Sumner the frontman of New Order and a guitarist of Joy Division. The honestly and emotionals speaks highly of a fine and talent3d artist. The journey to the music industry started is insightful. Raised as a single child in the working class district of Salford. He led a turblent childhood, not academically bright and mischevious as a child. What inspired Bernard interest into music? Joy Division achieved phenomenal sucess during the 70s, the era of punk as legendary bands Pink Floyd established a strong presence. Joy Divison enjoyed massive success. The direction of the music shifted, Frontman Ian tragically died causing a profound effect on the band prompting new changes. New Order emerged, one of Manchester finest bands. The 80s marked a new era, as electro music became hugely popular. The autobiography tells you about the dynamics of band, which I found interesting and insightful. Bernard comes as a honest indvidual, who opens up a lot by talking about his upbringing and an insight into the music industry of the 70s and 80s. I would recommend the autobiography if you are into 70s and 80s music. I immensely enjoyed the autobiography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maclean delievers another cracking and enthralling piece of crime fiction, 28 April 2015
James Oswald continues to get better with each novel he writes. Prayer for The dead shows he is one of the best in the crime fiction field without a shed of doubt. The novel is atmospheric, gripping, dark and compellingly written piece of crime fiction. The depth of knowledge demonstrated in the police procedures and processes is excellent. The character of Maclean is well developed and engaging. He is not known to follow correct police procedures, angering senior peers in the process. He is good at justifying his actions. Maclean is involved a sinsister case concerning a journalist found dead in a cave. What are the motives of the murder? There are dogdy dealings in property business leading to arson atracks amd murders. The plot is well developed and kept me enthralled for long periods. Maclean joins the ranks of other leading crime fiction writers. I would recommend if you are into qualiy crime crime fiction
