4.0 out of 5 stars Dreamy!, 18 Jun 2014
This review is from: Ultraviolence (Audio CD)
After Born To Die blew me away and i could not stop listening to it was waiting for something new, Paradise was good to and gave us a little tease, so now we have Ultraviolence..and how different it is, no real fun or funky songs on this one, even tho Born To Die was quite dark anyway it had a slight playfulness to it..this one doesnt..for me the standout track is Brooklyn Baby..it kinda feels like in the middle of Born To Die and Ultrviolence.
So even though this album is vastly different it is still so catchy and addictive, can't stop playing it and each time i play it i notice more about it and it just grows and grows.
The songs are all quite dreamlike and sweep you up and Lana's voice is so unique i just love it.
Lana Del rey to me even tho deep and dark is my ray of sunshine in these rather predictsble musical times we are in. may she keep making music for all time!

Small player with no bells or whistles, does what it is meant to, region free from the box..some have complained that it isn't region free but i think there are 2 selling here with the same model numbers, so make sure you purchase the right one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming!, 12 Jun 2014

Bought for my partners garden, she has along garden with some trees at the bottom and when she mentioned it as her fairy garden got this for her.
When opening first reaction is how small it is but then when you put the idea into context and seeing it against the base of the tree the imagination comes into play and it a very effective little ornament.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wanted to give it more stars, 12 Jun 2014
This review is from: Dollman [DVD] (DVD)
I'm a big fan of Charles band and Full Moon pictures..i have most of them, i love bad low budget films..this one is such a disappointment really..such a great idea and with a re-make could do well..the thing i find with this film is that even tho it's low budget they should not have attempted to do this without more money for effects..in other words if you can't fund what your trying to do them don't do it or wait.
The whole budget must have gone on the first few shots of the alien planet because once he reaches Earth, the idea of him being small is filmed with him mainly sitting in his spaceship or just filmed with him on his own and then the other actors reactions to him, only one shot of him with another giant person thats looks very dodgy..one shot of him hanging onto a car is clearly an action man doll.
The acting isn't that good, it isn't funny just rather dull.
The only reason for 1 star is seeing Jackie earle Haley before his great turn in Watchmen and being Freddy Kruger.
Puppet Master films are much better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly well made, 28 May 2014
This review is from: Conan the Barbarian [DVD] (DVD)
Grew up with the Arnie version which in it's day was brutal and shocking and now a cult classic..this version bombed in cinemas and got below average reviews..wasn't expecting much and thoroughly enjoyed it..great sets, landscapes, Mamoa is perfect as Conan, rugged, handsome and intense..the fight scenes are exciting and many with good gore..also great villains and the stunning Rachel Nichols as eye candy.
Kinda feel this is more of a Conan film than the earlier version and dare i say it the better film for sheer entertainment value.
Shame it flopped as would have like to see another one and NO i don't want to see Arnie come back as Conan in a new film.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb melodies, 26 May 2014
This review is from: Fire Within (Audio CD)
After hearing Wings at my daughters dance show and see her dance to it, i was hooked on the song, was not sure if i would enjoy the whole album tho and expected it to be quite dull and only have that one outstanding song but with repeat listens it grows and grows and each song is beautiful and haunting but with a few upbeat pop feel songs too.
The deluxe edition has 4 extra songs which stand up to the rest of the album so well worth getting.
A unique sounding voice helps to set her aside and can't be compared to others and she sounds older and wiser than her years so looking forward to seeing how her career progresses and will check out her earlier album now.
Number 5 song All You Never Say is a standout for me too.

4.0 out of 5 stars good romp, 20 May 2014

This review is from: Hatchet [DVD] (DVD)
Hugely enjoyable slasher flik..very funny in places and thats what makes the film well above average is the interaction between the victims before they are off'd..you actually enjoy their banter and arn't just yawning waiting for the next kill to come along.
Good use of gore and rubbery effects, pick it up and cheap and i will be checking out the sequels

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected, 20 May 2014
This review is from: Tarzan [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
This a review of the film only..After hearing all the negative stuff about this i was pleasantly surprised.. my daughter of 9 really wanted to see this , the animation is my view was overall above average considering everything these days is compared to Pixar/ Disney and Dreamworks, the jungle, creatures and water effects were fantastic, specially the Chameleon and Crocodile..i guess where it lets the animation slip is in the human characters although i think Tarzan himself looked fine and the later adult Jane..i disagree with other reviewer, i thought she was not created as pretty Barbie doll..no hour glass figure there and quite Tomboyish..yes of course Tarzan had to rescue her everytime, thats what tarzan does. The other human characters kinda made me think of The Sims tho, bit odd looking and vacant..voice work was adequate and actually like that they did not use big famous voices which i always feel is like a ' Spot the Actor' game.
Storyline is a bit hokey but different and i loved the use of music..especially Coldplay's Paradise which was sadly missing in Life of Pi after hearing it in that trailer but it worked really well here..i enjoyed the romance between Tarzan and Jane as that is also a big part of what Tarzan is for me, a romance..although telling him she loves him after a few hours lost together is a bit much lol.
One last thumbs up for the Gorilla animation and not having cartoon like apes or silly sidekick jokey apes, the roars and fights can be quite brutal sounding..another point for having that more serious feel to the film and not loaded with burp and fart jokes...this gives the film more touching scenes between mother ape and Tarzan.
So don't go expecting to be blown away but hopefully and hour and half pleasing entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerising, 19 April 2014
This review is from: Life of Pi [DVD] (DVD)
I do tend to review films after more than one viewing, having seen this 3 times now thought it about time i did.
When i first saw the trailer i wanted to see it so bad and when i got around to it lived up to all my expectations for great storytelling and visuals.
You all know the idea of it by now and yet with every scene it entrances and stirs the emotions, even if the whole religious thing is not to your liking you can enjoy the relationship between Pi and the impressively detailed cgi tiger Richard Parker.
Like Jurassic Park having the best looking dinosaurs that will probably never be bettered this has the best looking cgi animals which i feel will be hard to better.
As for THAT ending, many seem let down or feel cheated but then that is because of the choice they have made in deciding how it all panned out.
A true modern classic and still wish iot had won the Best Picture Oscar.
