5.0 out of 5 stars Streets is watchin, 24 Jan 2007
" Streets is watchin, she is always watchin", and so was the author Edwin 'the time machine' Torres, a judge nicknamed for his harsh sentencing and who recounts the tales of his new york barrio through the eyes of Carlito Brigante, charting his rise from petty crime in the ghetto to running big time smack. A relentlessly paced book thats got it all, money and honeys, drugs, guns, the mafia, all kinds of tales along the way predominantly through the eyes of jive talkin Carlito.The author also gives a deep insight into the judicial system of the time and is set against all kinds of themes from the time. A book to make you ache with laughter or wet your eyes with tears, an understarted classic… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A quiet classic, 16 Jan 2007
Adapted from the Steven King novella, The Body, Stand by me is set in 1950s Maine( well, it is Steven King) and follows four young freinds as they they set out on a hike in search of the dead body of a child of their own age, killed by a train.

1.0 out of 5 stars a parody, 18 Dec 2006
Incredebly anticipated sequel that is one of the biggest let down of all times. When compared to the hauntingly suspenseful, intelligent and masterfully pieced together originals, that were true cinematic classics and blockbusters whilst still being very adult films, this installment seems to almost mock the originals with its lazy script and chlidish humour,direction that is aimed at pleasing a far younger audience. An apocalyptic world away from the quality of James Camerons originals, ludicrously cast and a commercial sell out. A parody, that could have been amazing.
