1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of 1hr, 30 Jun 2014
RESIDENT EVIL-RETCH ABUSEMENT.
George Romero was going to firstly create a film based on the game which was a tip of the hat towards his Dead trilogy.. If only he had!
This film has no internal logic when it starts, or story to tell. A waste of 1hr.32mins of my life. Point of fact, by just over an hour the film ends and a new scenario has to be found to somehow extend the pain even further upto a standard film length..
The only zombies who appear here are the reviewers who are brain dead enough to not see beyond the by now boring, regurgitated same action pieces, [ some have now appeared 3 times in this series ] and give this drivel 5stars!!

{Even Milla in the commentary takes the p*ss out the films lack of making any sense or following any sort of real thread. Her laughter along with hubby Anderson just shows what utter contempt they have for both the game it was originally based upon, and its fans.}
Any punters foolish enough to like this drivel, just ensure that these pair will keep continuing banking Millions of dollars, for re-churning out the same old crap in a new form with no originality at all. At least Romero has ethic's where he only makes a zombie film with something new to tell, unlike these stealers of peoples hard earned cash.

RESIDENT EVIL 4:AFTER-IDEA'S.

I don't do many reviews but this poor illegitimate daughter of MATRIX doesn't do so much as a riff, as just rip the film series off.
Anderson directs as no-one else it seems was prepared to direct this tacky mess. The prison idea just isn't used to any real point, or go's anywhere with it, little use of the dead horde's, and what is.. well some-one's been watching the mutant vampires from BLADE2 obviously. Why are the tower blocks in L.A. still burning sum 3-4 years after the out break? What's with the LORD OF THE RINGS Wraith Lord rip-off ?!
It just destroy's any sort of internal film reality context with this WWF character super-zombie, the axe/cudgel just made me laugh out loud at how pathetic this looked. Why carry a crappy weapon like that instead of sum proper deadly,high tech weaponry, if its sent to attack or destroy,and capture? If I could give minus-stars for this, it would get the full amount.
NO ORIGINALITY OR INSPIRATION AT ALL IN THIS FILM. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE REAL AVENGERS, 1 Feb 2014
UNLIKE DOCTOR WHO WHERE ALL THE EPISODES EXIST IN SOME FORM, THE ORIGINAL AVENGERS TV SHOW ISNT SO LUCKY.BEING A FAN OF THIS PSEUDO THRILLER FANTASY SERIES, THE MISTS OF TIME OBSCURES TO A POINT,JUST HOW GREAT OAKS START FROM SMALL BEGINNINGS.. AND MOST OF THIS SMALL BEGINNING DOESNT EXIST ANYMORE, SADLY.
PRODUCED IN A 60'S STYLE CONTEXT,NOTHING UPDATED. THIS AUDIO SERIES STARTS AT THE TRUE BEGINNING AND QUICKLY DEVELOPS THE DARK URBAN CRIME THEME THAT WAS QUITE ADULT, FRESH AND TREND SETTING AT THE TIME, UNTIL THE SERIES DIVERTED UP A DIFFERENT AVENUE AND A MORE INTERESTING FANTASY FLAVOUR AND CONCEPT. A TRULY ICONIC 60'S SERIES,THE EPITOMY OF A WHOLE DECADE, THE AUDIO SERIES IS A JUSTIFIABLE REMAKE THAT IS WELL WORTH GETTING IN ITSELF. THE AUDIO WORLD IS PRECISE AND CRISP,AND WHILE THE 'UPPER CLASS' VOICE WORK MAY DATE IT SOMEWHAT,THE ACTING CANNOT BE FAULTED.
STEED RIDES AGAIN.!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blakes 7?, 25 Aug 2013
This review is from: Lucifer (Blake's 7) (Audio CD)
This is the audio book i'm talking about. A big fan of the series throughout all these years I bought this with some trepidation..
Paul's voice doesn't seem to have changed and the background ambient sound to add atmosphere works well. The book carries on the pessimistic view of the series and the authors progression of the Federation is well thought out and logical.
I find it hard to believe all the Seven are dead, if any survived it would be Vila.. An obvious explanation of how Avon survived the end credits of the programme is given.
Still it is left open ended and over the six cd disc's there little drag in the tale, with a nice climax, sticking to Terry Nation's Elba idea's he proposed.
IF you expect a resurrection of the Seven then you'll be disappointed. This is Avon's story more than anything else. Its a lot better than the B7 novel's AFTERLIFE and A TERRIBLE ASPECT.
Will you be satisfied? Well I was with the conclusion and leaves an opportunity for more adventures.

5.0 out of 5 stars SILENT NIGHT WITH HITCHCOCK., 15 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'M AN ENTHUSIASTIC FILM FAN AND HAVE A FINE INTEREST IN THE GRAND OLD DAYS OF SILENT CINEMA, HITCHCOCK THE FINEST THRILLER DIRECTOR EVER, CREATED SOME OF THE GOLDEN AGE GREATS ,THOUGH ADMITTEDLY MOSTLY IN HOLLYWOOD...
SO JUST HOW WELL DO HIS BRITISH SILENT FILMS COMPARE TO SAY FRITZ LANGS PRODUCTIONS..?
WELL, THE BOOK GOES WELL INTO BOTH THE STORY,ACTORS USED AND DIRECTIONAL SCRIPT NOTES. THE BOOK ALSO REVIEWS WHERE POSSIBLE THE ACTUAL FILM AND DOES A SPLENDID JOB ON MOST COUNTS.A VERY INFORMATIVE CONCISE BOOK THAT I FOUND AN ENJOYABLE READ AND WENT A LONG WAY TO LETTING ME KNOW WHICH I WOULD PROBABLY FIND WORTH VIEWING TO MY OWN TASTES.
I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AS BEING WELL-WORTH THE PRICE TO OPENING A WINDOW ON THE BRITISH FILM INDUSTRY AND HITCHCOCK AT THAT TIME.EXCELLENT.

Doctor Who: Father Time

Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.06

5.0 out of 5 stars SWEET CHILD OF TIME, 29 Feb 2012
THIS BOOK IS ONE OF THE VERY BEST DOCTOR WHO NOVELS EVER WRITTEN.PARKIN HAS CONSISTENTLY CREATED INDIVIDUAL BOOKS IN THE WHO AND BERNICE SUMMERFIELD NOVEL RANGE THAT ARE ALL UNIQUELY DIFFERENT AND INTERESTING.ALTHOUGH SOME FALTER IN THE'RE DEVELOPED PLOT-LINE'S PARKINS STYLE OF WRITING IS ALWAYS ENTICEING AND DRAWS YOU IN EASILY.
THIS BOOK HOLDS ONE OF THE MOST ENJOYABLE AND CAPTIVATING IDEAS OF THE DOCTOR HAVING TO RAISE A CHILD FROM A BABY WHEN HER PARENTS ARE KILLED IN A SKIRMISH WITH AN ALIEN CLOSE ENCOUNTER.
IT BOTH EVOKES IN THREE SECTIONS THE 1980'S ERA IN STYLE FROM THE START OF THE DECADE TO THE END; AND A COMING OF AGE FOR HIS DAUGHTER WITH THE DOCTOR SADLY HAVING TO MOVE ON IN HIS LIFE WHILE TRAPPED ON EARTH.
A SUPERB EFFORT SHOWING A DIFFERENT SLANT ON THE TIMELORD AND HIS EMOTIONAL LOVING SIDE. A MEMORABLE BOOK NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN ONCE READ, FANTASTIC.

I've no interest in whats fashionable or not however its seems these pumps i purchased are really smart and in at the minute.I had a set for years and years as a lad, and i've found these just as durable and sturdy as they evere were,the added new colours also help give a nice twist on a classic piece of footwear i'd reccomend to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars I HATE FOOTBALL ., 27 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I detest football and all thats thuggish and yobbo that goes with it, with way overpaid footballers and groupie fans that end up more obsessed than train spotters and just as sad...However the lad needed some football boots for school @ a reasonable price as my fiancee couldnt afford a stupid price for such items.The boots were smart looking with no stitching which i could see that would come apart like some i used to have years ago...The lad was well pleased and i must say the price was reasonable for such a good quality pair of pumps.

5.0 out of 5 stars the real captain america ?, 15 Dec 2010
This review is from: Captain America (VHS Tape)
YOU KNOW I'VE WATCHED SOOOOO MANY SERIALS OVER THE YEARS FROM THE PERILS OF PAULINE,JUDEX AND TARZAN THE APEMAN FROM THE SILENT ERA UPTO THE LATE 1950'S CHILDRENS SERIALS MADE IN BRITAIN FOR OUR OWN SATURDAY PICTURES SHOWS.SO HOW WELL DOES THIS SERIAL COMPARE TO THOSE OTHER FAMOUS ONES LIKE KIRK ALYN-AS SUPERMAN AND BATMAN? WELL TO BE TRUTHFUL THERE'S LITTLE CHEESEY IN THIS SERIAL COMPARED TO ALOT THATS OUT THERE.INFACT I'D SAY THE FIGHTS ARE VERY IMPRESSIVE,ONLY SPYSMASHER,THE PHANTOM AND CAPTAIN MARVEL (WHICH IS JUSTIFYABLY CLASSED AS THE BEST EVER)ARE BETTER IN TERMS OF PLOT,OR SPECIAL EFFECTS AND DON'T TALK DOWN TO THE KIDS.. A VERY GOOD AND SATISFYING SERIES WITH LITTLE THAT WILL MAKE YOU PULL A FACE OVER..I JUST WISH IT HAD - 1.THE TRUE COMIC ORIGEN OF THE HERO,2.STEVE ROGERS AS THE CHARACTERS NAME NOT C.AMERICA#3 AS IN COMIC CONTINUITY IS DEFINED AS BEING THIS VERSION, AND FINALLY 3.WHERE'S THOSE CUTE ,LITTLE EAGLE WINGS ON THE SIDE OF HIS MASK?
ENJOY- I DID!
