2.0 out of 5 stars Substandard unofficial offering..., 6 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't mind admitting that I'm a massive Tom Hardy fan, in fact I'm bordering-on obsessed with Britain's finest actor. So, you can imagine how excited I was to get my grubby hands on a book about the man himself. Excitement soon turned to disappointed however. This (quite obviously) unofficial book is an extremely amateur effort, obviously intended to cash-in on Tom's new-found star status last year when Dark Knight Rises was released. Never has a book gone off at so many tangents in order to fill pages. As I finally struggled to the last page - I realised I hadn't learned one new thing about Tom that I didn't already know. A real shame.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless., 31 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beware - these lights are not as described. From the description you expect them to be a string of lights - nowhere does it mention that these fairy lights are in a loop connection and are pretty much useless. Poorly designed and good-for-nothing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful. Awful. Awful., 23 Aug. 2011
I've been a fan of Ricky Gervais since day one, since his days DJing on XFM in fact. I adored both the Office and Extras, split my sides laughing at all his previous live DVDs and even championed his Golden Globes hosting performances - then I watched this... Oh dear. I didn't laugh once. In probably the biggest fall from comedy grace ever - this is dire. REALLY, really dire. What has an hour of fat jokes have to do with Science? Gone are the days where his comedy was clever. This is cruel 'humour' - the type of 'humour' a comedian resorts to when they've lost their way. And on the strength of this, as the majority of other reviews attest -Ricky Gervais has definitely lost his way.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother., 8 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Long Weekend [DVD] (DVD)
I like to give films with unfavourable reviews the benefit of the doubt. However, for once I wish I had listened. This is truly an abomination. I ended up winding forward to the end - just to check whether the dog was ok or not (didn't care about the rest of the characters). Avoid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Punch-packing punk!, 28 Sept. 2009
I stumbled upon this band quite by chance one night at Soho's deepest darkest 12 Bar. Unlike today's new-fangled pretenders, these old school rockers hark back to a time when punk packed a proper punch. Prepare yourself for rapid'n'ragged guitars riffs, hypersonic drumming and blue streak bass-lines - not to mention their rabble-rousing songs - all played at breakneck speed. Album highlights including crowd-pleasers 'Drunk At The Wake', 'Wanna Pizza' and 'Kentucky Blue' show that this London three-piece don't take themselves too seriously - but that's not to say you shouldn't...

1.0 out of 5 stars Amazing cast - diobolical film., 13 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With a cast consisting of Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr, Nick Nolte, Matthew Mcconaughey and Steve Coogan - you'd think this film would be nothing less than spectacular. In reality this film is so gut-wrenchingly unfunny and heart-breakingly disappointing that at the end of 102 minutes you feel utterly deflated. However, Tom Cruise's hilarious performance (sadly he only appears for a matter of minutes) is the one redeeming feature of this otherwise diobolical film.
