1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely awful, 4 Jun. 2007
I'm not generally such a harsh person, but this is a terrible film. I agree that the very few funny bits were in the trailer.

Just one of those 'oh look how stupid these people are, hahahaha, isn't it funny?!' kind of films, hugely annoying.

There is no proper story to it, the jokes are cheap, based on boring stereotypes and plain not funny.

I guess if you are drunk and in need of some simple, very simple, entertainment, and your friend brings it over, it might do the trick. On all other occasions this is just a waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible collection of portraits from all over the world!, 4 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Portraits (Hardcover)
When I saw this book for the first time I fell in love with it, I just had to have it! I use this book to practice portrait drawing and it has just the perfect size for this.

The pictures are from all over the world and there are some truly inspiring ones amongst them!

To me it works just fine without much text and in this shape, but I could understand how that might not be for everyone. I also like the quality of it, but then again, I am not a photographer.

It's just your typical coffee table picture book, but in a handy size. His work is amazing and it is rare to find a book entirely devoted to close up portraits, which I really enjoy. Definitely a book I will always come back to and have never regretted buying!

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspiring must see film!, 4 Jun. 2007
This movie has never received the acknowledgement it deserves. It is an amazing film which comes to life thanks to great performances of all the key actors, especially Angelina Jolie!

This is one of my favourite movies and has made me read Susanna Kaysen's book as well as a similar book by Sylvia Plath.

It is an incredibly inspiring film, showing that everyone could end up in a mental institution and giving these surprisingly 'normal' girls such personality with all their little quirks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very sweet, 4 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Miss Potter [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Although I am not a big fan of Renee Zellweger, I have to admit that she plays this role well and with a convincing accent.

The story is delightful and the odd animations fit in perfectly, which is quite surprising. The background and details are truly wonderful and the story moving.

Sometimes it can all seem a bit over the top and the story moves along very quickly, but I loved that her art still played the most important role and she is often shown drawing and painting. Overall it's just always nice to see a well made artist's biography, and because of that already well worth viewing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if you are not quite decided yet, 4 Jun. 2007
What a great book! If you are thinking about doing a degree in fashion design, this is the perfect book to help you decide realistically if this is for you or not. Despite concentrating on the syllabus of a typical fashion design degree it still gives an amazing amount of information regarding many different things.

This is not a how-to-sew book, but if you are thinking about fashion design this book will prepare you and let you know what to expect from a degree.

It has a modern layout and is beautifully and generously illustrated with many pictures. I picked it up expecting a book describing the course, but it is so much more and is a wonderful and fascinating read, taking you through every step of fashion design.

Deciding on a college, history of fashion, the manufactoring process of fabrics, fashion illustration, basic principles of design, colours, fibres, altering a toile, tailoring, the portfolio, the runway - this book covers it all. It touches almost all aspects and gives bite-size introductions to all of them!

Plus at the back is large selection of website links to guide you further.

Basically, if you think about studying fashion design you need to get this book. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Original idea, amazing craftsmanship, 25 April 2007
Creature comforts are just so well done, smooth but you can still see how they were done - the perfect balance.

This set is really only the complete series, not a boxset. Inside the cardboard box are the two series as they are usually packaged. Some of the featurettes are very good, although I could have watched many more special features. :)

Definitely well worth watching.... over and over again!
