The Maze Runner [DVD]
The Maze Runner [DVD]
Dvd ~ Dylan O'Brien
Price: £9.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not amazed..., 2 Mar. 2015
This review is from: The Maze Runner [DVD] (DVD)
I perhaps expected a bit too much from this film or indeed I may not be a part of the target audience intended, but I found The Maze Runner quite ordinary. The premise was good, acting OK, great surround experience and even the special effects were fully commensurate, even so it failed to excite or inspire. Not every good story translates to the movie screen...this may be one of those.


Before I Go To Sleep [DVD]
Before I Go To Sleep [DVD]
Dvd ~ Nicole Kidman
Price: £9.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting premise, 23 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Before I Go To Sleep [DVD] (DVD)
Nicole Kidman always gives decent value for money and this film is no exception. While this psychological thriller gets off to a slow start it picks up the pace mid way in a supprising manner. Acting is good throughout allowing the viewer to empathise with the characters, and overall is worth watching if you forgive the plot holes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Be aware..., 21 Feb. 2015
Ours were purchased from Debenhams and initially they impressed. Used solely for light food related cutting I was disturbed that when last used, I inadvertently let loose of one of the handles, the spring opened and the scissors came apart with one section falling to the floor just missing my foot. While I am partially to blame, it seems obvious that there should be some form of clip to stop this accidentally happening. As such, I am reluctant to recommend this product.

Topping VX1 2x25W Hi-Fi Power Stereo Subwoofer Amplifier 24bit/96kHz Digital USB DAC Headphone Amp
Offered by Victory Cyber Store
Price: £99.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A little star!, 19 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Following my own purchase of a Topping amplifier, we decided to get a VX1 for our son who's music library is stored primarily on a PC. The amplifier came nicely packaged in a foam lined box and was complete with a USB cable, UK mains plug and power supply, and even a large to small headphone adaptor.
The amp is encased in metal and measures approximately 4.5 inches wide, 1.75 high and 6.75 deep. On the rear are gold plated speaker inputs for bare wire or Banana plugs, Phono auxiliary input and a USB output. Fromt face is aluminium and has two selector switches, volume control and a headphone output.
Connection to a Windows 8.1 PC was simplicity itself. Connect the USB lead, turn on and the computer immediately recognises the VX1 as an output device and you then right click the speaker icon on screen, sellect the VX1 and apply...simples!
In use, the amplifier is a detailed little device driving a pair of Wharfedale Diamond 9.0 speakers, and does not seem to have a preference to any particular type of music. We are familiar with Burr Brown equipped CD players and can say that it's implimentation in the VX1 seems well done. However it does seem lacking in Bass at this early stage, although the speakers and type of room the equipment is in probably plays a great part in this. We plan to change speaker cable also, to see if this helps.
The auto on/off device built into the amp works well when connected to a PC via USB, automatically sensing the status of the PC. We have yet to try the auxillary in and headphone out but will update the review should the need arise.
In short, this is a great little amp for very little money, and makes a brilliant companion for a PC based system on a budget. It is easy to recommend!


Olive Kitteridge [DVD] [2015]

Dvd ~ Frances McDormand
Price: £17.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Uncomfortable..., 19 Feb. 2015
Acting and characterisation is superb and technically this is a fine piece of tevevision but ultimately the storyline is one of misery, detailing the life of a somewhat dysfunctional family. As such it is an uncomfortable watch, but I don't regret viewing it on Sky.


Homefront [DVD] [2013]
Homefront [DVD] [2013]
Dvd ~ Jason Statham
Price: £6.37

5.0 out of 5 stars First class action..., 16 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Homefront [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
JS goes from strength to strength in his last few movies, showing that he can act aswell as playing the hard man. While the story may not be that inventive, both he and James Franco play their parts well. Couple this with well choreographed fight scenes and decent photography, it's a cracking film to watch. Special mention for Izabela Vidovic who plays JS's daughter...perhaps a star in the making!


8 PCS REPLACEMENT HEADS fit for Oral B electric toothbrush Flexisoft Vitality
8 PCS REPLACEMENT HEADS fit for Oral B electric toothbrush Flexisoft Vitality
Offered by Masbuy1210
Price: £7.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Waiting to see..., 15 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These brush heads look little or no different than originals although they perhaps feel a little harder than the 'soft' description would suggest. The first generic brushes I tried from another vendor were quite tight a fit whereas these seem a touch loose, and it will be interesting to see if this presents a problem. If the brushes only last half as long as originals, they will still represent a worthwhile saving, and I will update this review and perhaps the star rating in due course. Finally, the service from the seller was spot on.


A Walk Among the Tombstones [DVD] [2014]
A Walk Among the Tombstones [DVD] [2014]
Dvd ~ Liam Neeson
Offered by Its New 2 You
Price: £9.79

4.0 out of 5 stars New style old style detective..., 10 Feb. 2015
A bit of a departure from Mr Neeson's last handful of films... less action but with a much more intense and involving storyline giving oportunity to show his acting skills. This is a grim and violent tale made the more grittier by it's location and some excellent cinematography. If you enjoy slow moving crime films with a hint of noir, this is just right for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far so good...and see update, 9 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You can tell a reviewer who's getting on a bit when they say "why can't they print the instructions larger?"...so yes, I am getting on somewhat but this is the only criticism I have so far for Norton's newer version of Internet Security. Originally I was thinking of changing to Bullguard but given the price for five devices it's a bit of a no brainer.
Thus far, Norton 2.0 has been put on three PC's, two with the 2013/2014 Norton version and one with Bullguard and none of them has proved to be problematic. The new version, on detecting older Norton automatically uninstalled and then loaded, while Bullguard needed a simple uninstall prior to loading. If you follow the instructions on the enclosed card and input the product key to commence proceedings it should go without a hitch.
I like the new interface of 2.0, it is logical and easy to navigate not only for the everyday tasks but also to customise to your own requirements, and so far seems to have had minimal effect on the speed of the PC's. There is also an optomisation function built in which seems to work quite efficiently. Please be advised that 2.0 does take over defragmentation duties of the drives unless you change the settings otherwise.
Well it's so far so good, but like most software, time will tell and I will update the review should it be necessary.
Update
I have now installed this package on a fourth PC and, as with the others it went perfectly. It now functions on two running Windows 7 and one each on Vista and Windows 8.1. No issues as yet!


The Bucket List [DVD] [2008]
The Bucket List [DVD] [2008]
Dvd ~ Jack Nicholson
Price: £3.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful..., 9 Feb. 2015
This review is from: The Bucket List [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
A captivating film with superlative acting makes The Bucket List a joy to watch but be warned that it might just bring out the softer side of the viewer regardless of gender! Put it on your must see list.
