1.0 out of 5 stars All sounds the same and overly noisy!!, 20 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as my daughter already had the pirates book and loved it. Sadly this book is nowhere near as good, nearly each sound is the same, there is no variation and although there are road sounds they are all really harsh and unpleasant. My little one didn't like it at all and neither did I. Not a good one, I would avoid.

a little on the small side and not that strong. I thought from the picture these would be full length kitchen scissors

5.0 out of 5 stars A better comeback than anyone could ever have hoped!!, 27 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Beautiful World (Audio CD)
First let me say on one run through i was MORE than plesently suprised and would say this is the best TT album ever!!!

Faves on 1st impressions (it is only the 1st day after all)

- Shine : an instant classic i think like a modern day back for good is the kind of songs that will transend boundries and boys, older people and generally NON tt fans will love too.

-I'd wait for life : A very traditional ballad at its best, has garys footprints all over it and could have fitted on Nobody else or twelve months eleven days easily great song

-Like I Never Loved You At All : A hallmark card classic TT a there best type song really love it.

-Wooden Boat / Butterfly : LOVE hearing Jays vocals its way past time, love the fact its laid back and folk like. Shows they have matured which there fans. Butterfly its a great track too very sweet and brilliant harmonys which show off how polished they are now.

Over all the albums great songs like Mancunian Way which i thought id hate cos the titles crap suprised me as i like it and i love hold on and what u believe showing marks influence etc. I think its a diverse and amazing album well crafted and exciting to hear not just a standard boyband album and it prooves how far they have come!!!

They have great slick production and well written, well crafted and well produced album. It is a testiment to these four mens talent.

Sheer brilliance!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well acted very moving and not at all what you'd expect, 13 July 2006
This review is from: Swing Kids [DVD] [1993] (DVD)
Seeing as this was a disney movie I figured when I bought it it would be a light hearted drama about friends who were swing kids during World war II. Obviously I realise that any tale of the war and Nazi germany would have to be slightly dramatic but I though it would focus on the music and the swing dancing.

Oh how wrong could I be!!This film is a very moving and very well acted piece about Nazi supresion and their vile teaching and hatred about all things Jewish. The swing is mearly a subplot ,put in to make the trailer look like children could watch it, and serves to offer the only light hearted 10 mins in the film! The story revolves around Peter (a character that could have been way to sappy and disney to handle himself in reality and baked in self pity if it wasn't for the stunning acting by Robert Sean Leonard)who faces a battle between joing the HJ like everyone else and dying for the cause of what he believes in. For a disney movie there is alot of death and mysery but don't let that stop you watching it!
Although this film is nothing like I expected I loved it because of the brilliant acting and sometime quite gritty portrayl of Nazi Germany,its not the kind of film it says on the box but what emerges is an altogether more interesting piece on the struggle through the war and through history of human hatred and love, the changes in friendship and family and the ultimate betryal that is caused by the madness of war.
Special mention has to go to RSL and Christian Bale for not only acting so well as to turn a mussy script into a moving one but for being able to sing and dance so perfectly too. The acting all round (apart from a terrible performance by a young noah wyle!!!) makes this a emotional and believable film I would definitly recommend if you want to explore History and the human mind some more but not if you thought this was Disney, about dancing and like happy endings!!
