1.0 out of 5 stars They really get away with spending 38M dollars on this tripe?, 8 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The 5th Wave (Amazon Video)
Not often I feel the need to write a review like this but.....How on did earth Liev Schreiber, Maggie Siff and Ron Livingston (yes Ron, I know there's been many lean years since Office Space) get conned into acting in this film? Even if this film is aimed solely at the correct age group (15 apparently on IMDB) then as a fifteen year old I would be whole heartedly insulted if I was fifteen years old. They spent thirty eight million dollars on this rubbish! Thirty Eight Million Dollars.

I'm not usually one to skip through films, but given the length of this travesty (112 minutes!) I skipped and skipped and skipped.

I watched this on Amazon Video, thank goodness I didn't pay any more than a few quid.

Don't waste your time with this, really, really don't do it.

3.0 out of 5 stars As a made for TV movie it's probably ok, just about., 21 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Survivor (Amazon Video)
Tries to be a sophisticated spy on the run type of affair (ala Bourne) mostly set in London but flails about with a less than stellar script and even less than stellar acting from Jovovich. An older, weathered looking Brosnan tries to add some gravitas to the film, as does Robert Forster but unfortunately it's all a bit meh. After watching Survivor I was surprised to see that the running time is given as 96 minutes, it felt a whole lot longer, and not in a good way. Don't get me wrong, I love a decent length thriller and it doesn't need to whizz-bang along because I've got a damaged attention span or a dose of ADHD, I quite like watching "not-a-lot-happens-but-in-an-interesting-way" films if they're done well.

As a made for TV movie it's probably ok, just about.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty boring...seen it all before in previous Jurassic movies, 21 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Maybe the youngsters haven't seen a dinosaur film before so Jurassic World might be a bit of scary popcorn fun for them. But if you've seen the original and sequels then you're in for a disappointment. There's no tension or hide-behind-the-sofa moments, it's all crash bang wallop and special effects and by the middle the ending is all too predictable.

None of the characters are likeable and their acting is pretty much "going through the motions" on a CGI set. The two boys sent to stay with their aunt on the dino-island are excruciatingly annoying. It might have piqued my interest, and possibly the granting of another star, if they'd met a suitably creative and bloody end, sadly it wasn't to be.

The middle onwards is a like poor remake of an Aliens fire fight, with marines being picked off by CGI snapping teeth, only nowhere near as good. The ending is just a glorified Godzilla fight scene. Glad I rented this on Prime rather than shelling out for the physical media. Seriously, don't pay for this, if you've don't have Prime or PPV wait until it hits the bargain buckets in your local co-op or supermarket.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty awful stuff, 19 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Half a star each for seeing LA and SF being raised to the ground and summarily washed into the sea; but any half decent documentary on earthquakes and tsunami's gets graphics and SFX as good as what was in this waste of space these days. There's nothing special about the SFX to hold your interest.

The acting is terrible, there's no plot and the script seems to have gotten lost in the post. What on earth was Paul Giamatti thinking when he said he'd accept the professor role. Even after a couple of glasses of wine I couldn't find any redeeming qualities and that's saying something.

Meh.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine book of culinary horror shows on plates, 15 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like the blog the book is hilarious and sad all at once. I've followed the blog as well for a couple of years and had a few of my own "creations" published (including one in the book).

All we need now is a Dimly Lit Meals For One "Come Dine With Me" to complete our lives.

1.0 out of 5 stars Faulty moulding of the threads on the outlet for the sprayer hose/syphon causes air to escape so mine wouldn't pressurise., 29 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Faulty moulding of the threads on the outlet for the sprayer hose/syphon causes air to escape so mine wouldn't pressurise. Mine had a vertical gap from top to bottom on either side of the threaded outlet where you screw on the sprayer hose attachment. So basically it wouldn't pressurise due to air escaping from these gaps.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull, predictable, shallow, boring., 1 July 2015
Only managed to watch two and a half episodes before giving up. The premise is interesting enough, but it's a Chuck refresh but none of the characters are really that likeable and the acting is somewhat flat. How on earth this got a green light for production is anyone's guess.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful, works well if looked after - updated, 28 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had mine for nearly six months and still on the original battery. Works just fine for my three frothy coffees a day habit. The trick, as well, for a long and serviceable lifetime is not to poke it deep into the jug/cup, all you need to do is froth the top 1cm or so. Otherwise you'll just wear out the motor and deplete the battery as it struggles to move a large volume of fluid around it.

Edit: thought I'd come back and update this review. Well, after 11 months of daily usage (~3-4 serious froths a day to enhance my caffeine habit) it finally stopped working. That said at the time it only cost a couple of quid. Have ordered a new one, even though price has nearly doubled it's still a cheap and cheerful device that gets the job done with little or no farting about.

1.0 out of 5 stars Effortlessly turgid nonsense, 16 April 2015
Read this on my partner's kindle. The writing is turgidly awful, I only made it through the first two chapters then gave up.
