In My Own Words:
I have very individualistic views - sometimes controversial - but never shy away from what I truly feel and/or believe in. I do not run with the crowd - but equally I do not believe in running against it for its sake only. If I happen to like a CD, book or film, and praise it as a result, and it happens to receive great national critical acclaim too - then it's genuine; I don't fake it to pl… Read more

Steaming [DVD] [1985] <b>DVD</b> ~ Vanessa Redgrave
Steaming [DVD] [1985] DVD ~ Vanessa Redgrave
The opening scene of this movie consists of nobody but the late, great Diana Dors. Okay, so you're immediately `sold' - who isn't? But unfortunately, in many ways, this film (at least on first viewing) does not live up to all that it promises to be...

To be honest, I was only ever interested in this picture because Ms. Dors was in it; I have almost everything she ever did, both on film, paper and record; her name alone would sell anything - a bit like the reputation of a well-known brand or make that's got a great reputation and so people will buy it with confidence. However; when I first saw this film many years ago on TV, I'm not sure I ever made it all the way through to… Read more

BEWARE OF THE WOLF. VINTAGE 1982 BOARD GAME BY RAVENSBURGER by BEWARE OF THE WOLF - A lively game of risk & pursuit
There’s not much to this game at all really – perhaps suitable for very young children. (younger than box states)

Okay, so it is a child’s game for between the ages of 5 and 10 after all, but it still could have been much better with a bit more thought to the rules – one of which is a bit silly; get caught by another player – you’re sent home to start all over again, but get caught by the wolf, and you only go back four places... We thought this a bit silly, since the game is cantered around the wolf character playing piece which due to this idiotic rule, does not hinder players as much as it could... Instead of avoiding the wolf, players are more interested in avoiding… Read more
Sorry! Card Revenge Game by Hasbro
The frantic electronic talking game that’s ideal for parties! It’s actually nothing to do with the traditional board game of the same name - this is really a very similar game to ‘Uno’ with subtle differences.

Each player has a number of cards which they have to dispose of. A card can be placed on a card of the same colour, or in ascending order – numerically. The difference between this game and Uno, is that in this game, one is not allowed to place a card on top of another with the same number – unless it’s the same colour!

This is a great game – if only for the talking large playing piece which also doubles as a storage box for the game! It throws out sarcastic… Read more
