5.0 out of 5 stars Hell In A Cell, 8 April 2010
This review is from: Wwe - Hell in a Cell [DVD] (DVD)
I had waited so long for something like this, and finally it's here. The greatest match in WWE, Hell In A Cell, all of them. The pick of the bunch is obviously the six man title match were the champion Kurt Angle takes on The Rock, Stone Cold, The Undertaker, Rakishi and Triple H 5/5. It is without a doubt one of the greatest matches of all time, if you have never seen it this DVD is worth getting just for thismatch alone. A close 2nd is the meeting between The Undertaker and Mankind 5/5 were Mankind gets treated like a ragdoll, we've all seen the clip of him been thrown of the cell but that's just the start of the madness.

The other matches included are Undertaker V Shawn Michaels 5/5, Stone Cold & Undertaker V Kane & Mankind3/5, Kane V Mankind4/5, Triple H V Cactus Jack 5/5 ( Cactus Jacks career on the line), Triple H V Chris Jericho4/5, Brock Lesnar V Undertaker 5/5, Triple H V Kevin Nash 4/5, Triple H V Shawn Michaels 4/5, Batista V Triple H 4/5, Undertaker V Randy Orton4/5, D-Generation V Shane & Vince McMahon & Big Show 5/5, and Batista V Undertaker 5/5.

The last two matches I mentioned were in the new call that was constructed for the Big Show, the cell is bigger and more stable, also more dangerous. Every single one of these matches is golden in it's own way. For me the ones with Mick Foley will have you on the edge of your seat time and again. For every WWE fan this is a must hav DVD, so get it now and enjoy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another Failed Horror-Com, 1 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Botched [DVD] (DVD)
The horror-com genre is littered with films like this now (Wasting Away & Murder Party another 2 to avoid). Ever since Shaun of the Dead there have been so many failed attempts, this is another. Only Severence has come close to Shaun since it's release. The plot is thin at best, a diamond thief messes up a job and has to do another one to make up for his error, and guess what, it goes wrong. The group of 3 thieves then take hosteches when they find out the building is surrounded by police. After that people start dying etc etc. I can't believe this is meant to be funny, the only funny thing about it is the acting and shambolic Russian accents. Am afraid to say this is another horror-com to avoid, just watch Shaun of the Dead or Severence againbecause they are still the top dogs.

Buy if you - like Murder Party (ha)

3.0 out of 5 stars Original, but needs work, 31 Mar. 2010

This review is from: Wasting Away [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
This film is very very original, but needs work. The storyline is simple and brilliant. A zombie movie from the point of view of the zombie. Awesome right? Well yes and no. The Idea is good but unfortunatly it hasn't been worked on hard enough. Here's a sum up of the plot, a group of friends mix ice-cream with beer and eat it, but the ice-cream has been contamenated with a green substance and turns the group into zombies. But here's the twist, they all think there super soldiers and everyone else is diseased. Yes it's paper-thin but enjoyable. Like I said it needs work, but don't worry am sure there will be plenty more movies of this kind in the future, good and bad. To sum up it's a good original film, with some good laughs, enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Laughs For All The Family, 15 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Land Of The Lost [DVD] (DVD)
As a massive Will Ferrell fan i couldn't wait for this film, the tralier i saw looked good, plus it also had Danny Mcbride in it. It is a good film but not what you might excpect from the wonderfull Ferrell. In this he is to much of a superhero, and his one liners are too often out of place, as funny as they are. But this is certinaly a film you can enjoy with friends or family.

There are some brilliant one-liners from Ferrell which wouldn't be out of place in Anchorman (His best comedy) and will have you on the floor. Danny Mcbride to has his moments and delivers the kind of performance you expeect from him these days (Tropic Thunder, Hot Rod). There are some crazy moments in this film, some for which you may have to turn your brain of to enjoy fully. Such as the t-rex moments. The one thing though that really bugged me was Ferrell as a suprhero. It didn't work well and didn't seem believeable, but there isn't much in this film that is.

Overall it is packed with laughs and some entertaining action scenes. I would advise turning your brain off and watching with your mates. You'll be talking about it and quoting it for a while. Possibly the comedy of the year, along with the Hangover.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic climax.......But no end product, 15 Sept. 2009
This review is from: The Strangers [DVD] (DVD)
This film frustrated me for 3 reasons. 1 - It took to long to get going. 2 - When it did it didn't last long enough and 3 - the end is awful. The Strangers is about 1 hour 20 minutes long, but it dosn't get going full on until about 45 minutes in. From there on until the final 5-10 minutes this is a great film. And the end was suuch a let down. For the first 45 minutes of this you'll be trying to figure what has happend between the couple and how, very dull and really not needed. There is the odd creepy moment, such as the knocking at the door and the lurking around from the male stranger who pops up alot and does make you gasp. After that this film kicks into gear and really comes into it's element. There are so many jumpy moments, creepy moments and a few shocks. Enjoy this 20-25 minutes as much as possible because this is the best part of the film. The end is such a let down, not only overall, but because of the lead up to it. It's so tense and creepy then..... nothing. Throughout this film you will get closer and closer the edge of your seat while cripping the pillow tighter before slumping back and feeling a bit disapointed. But i wouldn't recommend watchiing it alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Season, 21 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This without adoubt is not the greatest Rangers team of all-time but it was one of the greatest and most exciting season's of all-time. Week in week out both the Old Firm were dropping points, which meant the title went all the way to the last day. This DVD has evey second of evey Rangers SPL game of last season, all the wins, the draws and the defeats. It also has the celebrations of when the title was won on a dramatic last day. The highs of this DVD box-set are the 4-2 and 1-0 wins against Celtic, the 7-1 win against Hamilton, and the 3-0 win on the last day against Dundee United. For every Rangers fan this is a must own DVD, it is unique and entertaining. Buy it now and watch all the great match's from last season over and over, and forget the matches we lost. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best films of 2008, 17 May 2009
This was easily one of the best films of 2008, for two reasons. 1 - it's funny as hell. 2 - it's action is great. Comedy and action are two of my favourite genre's of film, and this combines the to wonderfully. Seth Rogen is outstanding in his comfort zone of being a pot-head, but this time instead of knocking some bird up, he shoots bad guys, awesome. The jokes are always presant and funny, the action dosn't begin until about 45 minutes in, and it's all out action. With massive over the top gun fights and one of the most realistic fights of all time the last 45 minutes is just as good as the first but for diffrent reasons. Overall this film is one of a kind and one of the best films of 2008. It is Awesome.

Buy if you like - Kiss Kiss Bang Bang or Super Troopers

The reason I recommend you to see Pineapple Express if you have seen these two films is because Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is an action film with plenty of comedy, and Super Troopers is a comedy with action (sort of). Infact i recommend you to see all three.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of The Greatest Albums of All Time, 22 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Antichrist Superstar (Audio CD)
It was a brave record company that got behind 'Antichrist Superstar', an album dominated with images of sickness, deformity and a hearty dollop of satanism, both in it's music and artwork. Nevertheless, Interscope did get behind Manson and 'Antichrist Superstar' and the pay-off was huge. Manson became America's Public Enemy Number One with this, by far his heaviest and most confrontational album. Screaming his guts out over a mostly furious musical barrage, Manson's lyric are about the Hypocrisy in religion and within polite society. It's an important album, and deliberately difficult to listen to (unless your a Manson fan). It's Notoriety enabled Manson to escape the shadow of his then mentor, NIN's Trent Reznor, and create a far bigger one - that of his own misunderstood reputation.This is a must own album and if you've never heard Manson (and would like to get into him) this is the perfect album to start with. A modern day classic.

Download - Irresponsible Hate Anthem, The Beautiful People and 1996.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Album, 22 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Ascendancy [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
Trivium have arrived. A statement that echoed around the metal world when this album was first heard. Trivium are a classic metal band in the making. The Trivium frontman Matt Heafy, how at the time as only 19, made a massive impact on the metal world with his terrific roaring voice. Also the band's sound was new, exciting and truly remarkable with the release of this album back in March 2005. Critics sniggered - until they heard 'Ascendancy', the most explosive metal album of the centuray so far. This however wasn't their debut album (they released 'Ember To Inferno' in 2003 which was very average 3/5) but it was this dazzling breakthrough, bursting with anthemic choruses, fist-pumping breakdowns, and warp-speed fretwork courtesy of Heafy and axe-partner Cory Beaulieu. Updating the 'Master of Puppets' era of thrash for a new generation, 'Ascendancy' as gone on to sell more than 100,000 copies in the UK alone. The future of metal had arrived, with an almighty bang.

Download - Pull Harder on The Strings of Martyr, Like Light to The Flies and A Gunshot to The Head of Trepidation.
Download if you like - Metallica, Slipknot or Pantera.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average Nu-Metal, 22 Mar. 2009
What do you do when the bandwagon to which you've been thrown on to comes off the rails? In the case of Project 86, there in danger of crashing. The fifth album from the Orange County gang shows occasional hints that Project 86 are capable of escaping past influences. But these are few and far between, For the most part, it's a case of just trying to get through a set of songs that are style wise stuck in 2001. But, even back then, the likes of 'Sincerely Ichabod', 'Domsday Stomp' and 'Necktie Remedy' would have been seen as offering littler inspiration. Only on 'Subject to Change' and the title track do the band find the foresight to vary the pace and go for a more rounded. mature, yet still vibrant aprroach. Otherwise, they sound burned out and boring.
