A daffodil - I just had to take a photo of one, cause I think they're colourful and pretty.

In My Own Words:
I'm considered quite a quiet person if I'm not familiar with people, but I do enjoy hanging out with friends and things.

Also, I can be quite random and have a liking for the fantasy genre of most books, films, TV shows etc as it's a welcome change to get away from reality for a while:D

I won't review everything, but when I feel like, cause I get lazy and it isn't an ambition of mine to be a To… Read more

Avatar's `vanilla release': you can't skip two FACT texts, despite the fact you brought the DVD legally ...there's a slight pause 1hr12 mins and six secs in(which you're warned about at the back of the case as it's a dual layer disc). Presented in 1.78:1 aspect ration (approx) and Full frame version 16:9 so no black bars (if that bothers anyone). The transfer looks flawless to me, and the best-looking one I've seen on DVD, probably. After the credits is introduced with a Pandoroa-inspired THX logo.

I've noticed, since the fourth Potter, the quality of these films has been dropping - since then, the films have felt very run-of-the-mill cash cows and with this latest one, that feeling is amplified even more, in my opinion.

Play Movie: The acting from the trio is still uneven - passable one minute, very stilted another. The standouts are Tom Felton, and the two boys who play younger Voldermorts. Acting dishonours go to Dan Radcliffe and Bonnie Wright - the latter in particular is wooden, bland and has no screen presence and the former is stiff and awkward and struggles with emotional scenes(like the climax).

The plot has some superfluous… Read more

This arrived today through my letter box(after two working days, so kudos for fast delivery) and isn't terrible or fantastic, but I did at least expect it to have screen protection as mentioned in the description, and it doesn't have that.

The pack comes with the two covers and inside the covers are two cardboard pieces of the front view of the N86. The covers slide onto each other(by a bit of transparent plastic inside the covers) so it slides when the phone does.

The back view matches the photo but the front view doesn't - the silicon skin covers all the buttons on the front where the mirror finish is(call, end call, menu, left, right and clear buttons) but leaves… Read more
