5.0 out of 5 stars Stomping Great CD!, 22 Mar 2003
This whole CD is fantastic! Each song blends into the next brilliantly and it's so easy to just keep playing again and again.
There's not really a weak song on the whole CD but if I have a complaint it's that the track, 'Where Do You Go' by No Mercy is a bit too long for my liking, other than that I'd highly recommend it to anyone that loves a good dance and party.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not So Saintly, 22 Mar 2003
This review is from: The Saint [DVD] [1997] (DVD)
This movie is a wonderful piece of escapism, pure and simple and as such, it's a great film.
Although the Simon Templar we see in the film isn't the one we've come to recognise through the literature and other movies, he is still a very likeable character in his own right.
A master of disguise, thief and all round ladies man, Simon Templar takes a job to steal the formula for cold fusion from a professor so that he can retire on the money that he'll make from the job.
All goes well until he meets the professor and finds her to be a young beautiful woman. He falls for her and decides not to steal the formula from her but the person who hired him threatens to kill her if he doesn't complete the job as planned.
So, he takes the formula and from then on he does his best to keep one jump ahead of everyone using high tech equipment and pure good luck as well as trying to stop the cold fusion formula getting into the wrong hands.
Does he get the girl? The ending will not disappoint.
There are three steps to becoming a saint - he may falter along the way but eventually he takes them. Great piece of evening's entertainment after a hard at work when you just want relax.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not The Best Film Ever..., 22 Mar 2003
This review is from: Batman & Robin [DVD] [1997] (DVD)
...but not the worst film either.
The only person I didn't mind watching was Uma Thurman who played her role really well.
The rest of the cast are merely making up the numbers which considering the poor script is no surprise. It's a shame because Chris O'Donnell had possiblities as Robin when he starred with Val kilmer but him and Clooney just don't seem to have the same rapport.
I say give it a go if you love anything Batman, if not then you're better off watching the first Batman film again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Film, 22 Mar 2003
This review is from: Dr. No (1962) [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Probably best known for Honey Ryder (Andress) emerging from the sea in the infamous white bikini, the first Bond film is actually one of the best adapted of Ian Flemings works to date.
Personally, I've always favoured Sean Connery as Bond anyway so I'm probably biased but I always thought that Connery gave Bond the hard edge that's been lacking in the subsequent Bonds (Brosnan excluded).
In this fantastic story, the villain, Dr. No, plans to destroy U.S. rockets and it's up to Bond in his own unique style to thwart Dr. No's plans. Assisted by U.S. agent Felix Leiter, (Lord) and various ladies along the way, this ends up being one of the most enjoyable of all Bond films staying quite true to the book.
If you've somehow never seen a Bond movie in your life then I'd start with this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Smashing, 22 Mar 2003
What a pleasant, romantic, thoroughly nice film this is!
Carrying on from Three Men and a Baby, this is set several years later and Mary is now five. Peter (Selleck) is in love with Mary's mother, Sylvia (Travis) but because of past relationship problems he won't admit his feelings.
Sylvia feels the same way as Peter but wants Mary to have a settled home with just one father instead of three and so when Peter won't commit, she agrees to marry another man. As he's British, Mary and Sylvia then have to go to England to live.
The touching love scene's between Peter and Sylvia are fantastic and the comedy is light and warm-hearted. A must have film for all romantic's out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Those Were The Days, 22 Mar 2003
This film has a little bit of everything in it. The acting is great - Richard Dreyfus is superb. The cars are fantastic and the soundtrack is practically unbeatable.
The story is about how four school friends spend their last night in town before going off (or not as the case may be) to live the rest of the their lives.
Often funny, sometimes sad, but always very watchable. If you love class acting, the film's a must; if you love classic American cars, the film's a must and if you love rock n'roll why are you still reading this - you should be watching the film!
Any Harrison Ford fans out there should keep an eye out for him as the man in the cowboy hat who's out to beat one of the four guys in a road race.

4.0 out of 5 stars Groovy!, 22 Mar 2003
This third part of the Evil Dead trilogy moves further away from the scare factor of the first and leans more towards comedy - it doesn't miss out on it's fair share of blood, guts and Deadites though!
Ash is back, meaner, more sarcastic and even more ticked off than ever. Thrown back in time to the Medieval ages, he soon becomes embroiled in a war with the Deadites and has to deal once again with the Necronemicon, the Book of the Dead.
Add to that the fact that he ends up fighting his evil self, who leads the Deaite forces and you've got yourself a fun filled, sometimes scarey but very funny film which ends on a twist.
You don't need to have watched the other two films either as this stands well on it's own.
So, if like to have a good night's entertainment but want to watch something a little out of the ordinary then choose this - you won't go wrong.

4.0 out of 5 stars Light Hearted Musical, 22 Mar 2003
This review is from: Blue Hawaii [DVD] [1961] (DVD)
Great location, great music, poor script - but who really cares when Elvis is on screen doing his thing and singing some of the best songs to ever come out of one film.
Elvis returns to the islands from the army determined not to enter into his rich father's pineapple business, preferring to try and make a go of a tour guide business with his Hawaiian girlfriend. His snobbish mother; Landsbury in a great over the top acting part complete with Southern drawl,("Have you got some sugar for your mother?") is horrified but she and his father eventually agree to let him try.
After various plot twists involving a tourist group made entirely up of young girls, he eventually makes a go of things and marries the girl.
Favourite songs have to be, Can't Help Falling In Love, which he sings to his girlfriend's grandmother for her birthday and Almost Always True. Other songs are, Rock A Hula Baby, Hawaiian Wedding Song, Blue Hawaii, Aloha Oe, No More, Moonlight Swim, Ku-u-i-po, Ito Eats, Slicin' Sand, Hawaiian Sunset, Beachboy Blues and Island of Love.
Nice piece of romantic, musical escapism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Adaptation, 22 Mar 2003
This review is from: Clueless [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
A wonderful up to date retelling of Jane Austen's, 'Emma'. Cher (Silverstone) has a privileged life, she goes to a great school and is popular along with her good friend Dionne (Dash).
She lives with her widowed father (Hedaya) and the only pebble under her perfectly manicured feet is her ex step-brother Josh (Rudd).
Cher loves to play matchmaker and can't resist the challenge when she meets the new girl in school, Ty, who isn't exactly 'popular' material at first glance. Having taken her under her wing and given her a complete makeover, Cher then tries to match her up with various boys.
This is alright until Ty takes a fancy to Josh and then Cher suddenly realises that she has feelings for him herself - but who will get the man?
Silverstone is absolutely fantastic in this film. She handles the difficult role SO well and you can't help but really like Cher and want her to get the man of her dreams for all her obvious flaws.
Add a brilliant combination of comedy, both oneliners and visual, and the fact that it's literally such a colourful movie and you've got yourself a film that will leave you smiling for ages afterwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Romance with a Twist, 22 Mar 2003
Architect, Oscar Novak (Matthew Perry) and his business partner, Peter Steinberg (Oliver Platt) are desperate to secure a high profile job working for tycoon, Charles Newman.
Newman is married and also has a mistress, who's an artist, called, Amy Post (Neve Campbell).
Due to a misconception early on, Newman thinks Oscar and Peter are partners in more than just the business sense and so, gets Oscar to spy on his mistress when he's not around as he jealously thinks that she may go off with another man.
Trying to keep Newman happy, Oscar agrees then meets Amy and falls for her.
Naturally, it comes out that they think he's gay and in order not to lose the possibility of the job, Oscar finds he has to play along.
One of the great and funny things about the film is just how much his ruse escalates totally out of control until finally his friends of several years and even his parents believe he really is gay.
Matthew Perry is excellent in this role which also gives him the opportunity to play it 'real' where, personally, I think he's at his best. Very few actors get to me like he does when he's portraying hurt and inner struggle - really pulls on the heartstrings. Fantastic acting.
Neve Campbell as Amy was lively and fun and it's easy to see why Oscar would fall for her.
The moment when Amy is about to kiss Oscar and then realises what she's doing and their following fight over Newman is one of the best in the film for both actors.
You can really see the turmoil they're both having - she because she's falling for what she thinks is a 'gay' guy and he because he hates seeing her with Newman but can't tell her of his true feelings due to his loyalty to his friend, Steinberg who will go bankrupt if they lose the job.
All in all a warm and touching film that is extremely funny in places. One to watch again and again.
