1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful!, 7 Mar 2011
This review is from: In The Loop [DVD] (DVD)
What an incredibly annoying and boring movie. The only thing that saves it are the few scenes with James Gandolfini. Otherwise, it made me want to run into the street screaming.

I guess if you like to watch people be brutually mean and insulting to one another, this movie will appeal.

3.0 out of 5 stars good cast but......, 18 Jan 2011
This review is from: Luther - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
The cast is terrific - Idris Elba's supporting players are as interesting as he is. But the storylines are just over the top and Luther's involvement and trust in the psychopath Alice is an awfully hard sell. Each episode is entertaining and interesting but I find myself regretting having watched each one when it's over. These are not for the faint hearted (and I'm a big fan of police and crime shows and not squeamish).

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 17 Oct 2010
This review is from: Daniel (Hardcover)
I struggled to get through this book. Normally I love Mankell's books, especially his recent one Eye of the Leopard. But the writing in this is dull and tedious, lacking the sparkle of his other books. Perhaps it's just a bad translation but either way, this book is not a fun read, nor is the story all that compelling. Oh well, one bad one out of a dozen or more books is excusable!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 14 Sep 2010
This review is from: Spiral - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
The 2nd season is even better than the first, though both are great TV. It's a French combination of Prime Suspect and the Wire. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys crime/police dramas.

5.0 out of 5 stars A REAL GEM, 24 Jun 2010
Long overdue! The chemistry between these two men is palpable in every tune here. And some of the covers are truly great (e.g. El Rayo X, Looking East). I never thought "Your Bright Baby Blues" could be better than the original but it is here. This album is a real gift to their fans.

1.0 out of 5 stars boo, 24 Jun 2010
Maybe it's suitable for teenagers, but otherwise this series is dull, stupid and poorly acted. I shelved it after 3 episodes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yawn, 3 Aug 2009
This show plods along so slowly, you would have to be comatose to not follow along. I got bored. Or maybe I'm just spoiled after watching Prime Suspect? It's just too heavy on the DI's family travails that it hardly felt like a police programme anymore.
