Minx Air 200 Wireless Music System with Airplay, B&hellip by Cambridge Audio

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! Just WOW!, 19 Dec 2013
I've been wanting to buy a decent music system for a while now, so after hours of internet research I went for this one. Set up in my living room was easy - I had it linked to my home network and iPad via AirPlay in about 10 minutes and the internet radio setup using the Minx app was a doddle.
The incredible sound quality is the reason for the premium price, effortlessly filling the room with 200 watts of crystal-clear acoustics. It brings out the best in all music genres - I particularly enjoy bass-pumping dance music and the Minx has the house shaking!
If you want to invest in a quality music system then this is the one. I'm already considering getting the 100 watt version for… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Good But Not Great..., 17 Dec 2013
I made the mistake of believing the hype surrounding this movie and was left a bit underwhelmed by it all.
Positives - it doesn't try to be a remake of the original, but a stand alone movie in its own right. It doesn't rely on CGI effects, preferring good old fashioned prosthetics (the electric carving knife scene is a corker!). The cast are effective (if a little un memorable) and the sets are terrific.
Negatives - no central character you want to root for. Not very scary for a movie that is supposed to be "The most terrifying film you will ever experience". An abrupt ending that made me ask "Is that it?"
All in all, well made but not the terror-fest I hoped it would be.
Kolchak the Night Stalker: Compendium by Skinner
As a child, I remember being scared to death by The Night Stalker movie and The Night Strangler follow up - 2 of the greatest TV horror movies ever made. The TV series never reached those heights of terror, but was terrific fun and you couldn't help but fall for the charms of Carl Kolchak. I was excited when I spied this book, but didn't know what to expect. I wasn't disappointed - it's a collection of 43 short stories starring the man himself, very much in the spirit of the show. They are ideal for a creepy bedtime read as most are around 10 pages long. Sleep tight!
