Taken 3 [DVD]
Taken 3 [DVD]
Dvd ~ Liam Neeson
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars End of a triology(?)..., 29 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Taken 3 [DVD] (DVD)
As a thriller, Taken 3 is definitely worth a watch and in terms of storyline is an improvement on the second chapter. However, it's photography is so close in the fight scenes appear rushed and no where near the quality of the original. Both principal actors, Mr Neeson and Mr Whitaker give good accounts of themselves and acting in general is good. If you are a fan of the first two films, this (the last?) should not disappoint.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive but..., 25 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A relatively inexpensive cable which I am using between a Bluetooth receiver and Hi Fi. Treble is distinct without being sharp, Midrange open and Bass nicely rounded. I did notice that if the plugs were touched while playing, that the music would differ in loudness. I disconnected the cable and tightened the plugs and cleaned the ends which seems to have done the trick. As a result however, I have docked a couple of stars as no end user should have to do such 'finishing' on a new product.

This review is from: Atlas: Year One (MP3 Download)
A truely beautiful album by an expert songsmith and one which draws you back for further listening time and time again. If you love the track from the current Nationwide advert you must give this a try. Thoroughly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic speakerboard..., 2 Jun. 2015
I would normally try to write an in depth review for such an item, but as all bases (no pun intended!) seem to have been covered I will keep it short.
I ordered my speakerboard from JL who were changing the same price as Amazon but who delivered it next day to one of their nearby collection points free of charge and, more importantly, give an additional 1 year guarantee. The unit comes well packaged but complete with only it's mains lead, remote and instructions. I connected it via a spair optical lead I had to my 2011/12 series Sony TV, turned on and sellected the TV input on the remote and away it went. It certainly does enhance not only the quantity but also quality of the sound although there are only small differences between the settings available. Nice that it has dedicated adjustments for the strength of both dialogue and bass output which is where it ticks my boxes so to speak. I also tried Bluetooth streaming of Spotify via a Samsung tablet and it would certainly serve as an occasional music player albeit with a narrow stereo field.
The unit appears very sturdily made with a metal base which provides the bass drivers protection when being positioned and aesthetically is very pleasing with a readable but discrete display behind it's grill. As it happens, the stand of my TV is almost the exact size of the unit so looks extra neat. The remote is functional although I am sure most people would prefer a full size unit.
All in all this is a very good buy and while it would never replace a 5.1 system, it achieves what it was designed for.

A fun to watch and entertaining movie with decent acting, photography and special effects. It bounces along at a good pace and holds your interest. In short, a good family movie that engages the viewer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to beat..., 29 May 2015
Verbatim discs are hard to beat, and these Dual layer discs are perfect for that longer video back-up. So far no failures and I'm onto my second spindle...only wish they were a touch less expensive. Recommended.


The Asylum [DVD] [2015]
The Asylum [DVD] [2015]
Dvd ~ Brett Dier
Price: £6.00

2.0 out of 5 stars Straight to DVD release..., 25 May 2015
This review is from: The Asylum [DVD] [2015] (DVD)
Also known as 'Exeter', The Asylum is another 'straight to' DVD release and it shows. Acting isn't too bad but the story uses every known cliche in the book for this genre. Special effects are somewhat lame and storyline a throwback to the 80's with nothing original added. Not a movie I would recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Signal on DVD, 11 May 2015
It struck me that The Signal was an attempt to create a 'cult' film. It was reasonably acted and certainly well photographed but the script was lacking. Some great ideas came about which, if expanded upon would have turned a reasonable film into a good one despite it's slow moving demeanor. Yet again, another new release which might only deserve streaming as opposed to purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain..., 8 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had recently purchased a Polatab Q10.3 tablet which has unusual dimensions and was having difficulty sourcing a suitable case. Seeing that this Case Logic had a V shaped back, I thought that it might be suitable if I inverted the tablet thus allowing the rear speakers to be uncovered when using it in the stand mode.
Looking around I saw that one seller was advertising the case for less than £3 which included postage and so took a gamble that not only would it fit but that it would arrive. I was surprised when it popped through the door a few days later and I can confirm that it is not only very well made but that it fit the tablet well. It is similar to an enbossed hardback book, with stitched edges. The inside isn't soft but the hook assemblies stop the lid of the case touching the screen in normal use and the stand mechanism works perfectly in horizontal mode.
The V shape does allow the speakers to be uncovered, and in my case I have the tablet inverted which makes no difference as the display rights itself.
The case is a little larger than a fitted one might be, but if you have a 10.1 tablet that a dedicated case is unavailable, this one is well worth a try especially at a bargain price.


Mankind's Last Stand [DVD]
Mankind's Last Stand [DVD]
Dvd ~ Joe Reegan
Price: £5.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow starter..., 5 May 2015
This review is from: Mankind's Last Stand [DVD] (DVD)
For me, this film tries to be too clever and perhaps they should have stuck to the basic premise and relied less on the 'interviewing" of the characters which really added nothing in the way of empathy. Some reasonable action scenes but it does take a while to get going and it's not a film I would recommend to buy...wait for free streaming!
