It hurt removing this but the end result was so worth it you wouldn't mind go through the pain again. I highly recommend this product specially for people with bad blackhead problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Remake, 14 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always been a fan of the 1971 film of Andromeda Strain. So on seeing this title available, I was concerned that the film might be an abortive attempt at making the same movie with better FX and adding silly Hollywood plot banalities. Turns out that fear was unfounded, there is no stupid "love interest" subplot or gung-ho Yankee Patriotism. It stays true to the original and its critical view of the American government and it's military.

This is a well produced and well acted remake of a classic. In twenty years time, it's likely that this will be quoted as the classic, as the director manages to add more tension to an already excellent story. I will now have an internal debate about which Andromeda Strain to watch when I reach for the DVD on the shelf!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Tabletop Scenario?, 14 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a long time tabletop gamer over a certain age, I've always looked at Games Workshop as being evil incarnate. So, my expectations for this film were very low. I was expecting something badly thought out and derivative (like their games).

However, I was pleasantly surprised … it reminded me of a role playing scenario in animated form. The cast contains some high profile names who are known gamers, which adds to that interpretation. The plot isn't very deep, but nobody who knows 40k should expect anything more than cookie cutter personalities from the Space Marines anyway!

If you enjoy the film, try Fantasy Flight's Deathwatch or Dark Heresy games … they take 40k and make it playable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought Provoking, 14 Aug. 2014

This review is from: Moon [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
A film that reminded me of some science fiction classics, including the often overlooked Dark Star. A masterful acting performance by the one "live" actor (all others are either voices or on video link) means this is a must watch movie. Initially this appears to be a film about the effects of long term isolation, but as the story unfolds there is hidden depth beneath.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Episodes 2 & 3!, 14 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Far better than Attack of the Clones! An animated character turns in a more believable acting performance as Anakin than either Episode 2 or 3. Let's face it, Christensen couldn't have been more wooden if he was a Jerry Anderson puppet.

There are intro voice overs which are reminiscent of Starship Troopers which actually help to show that the forces of the Republic aren't as "good" as the Jedi are being led to believe. Animation quality is high and is stylised, which will allow the series to age slower than if realism had been the goal.

Anthony Daniels is the sole returning character from the films, so some of the voices are not quite as close to the originals as one might want … although in some cases this is a plus (e.g. Anakin). Tim Curry as Palpatine/Sidious is always going to go down well!

1.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Useless, 21 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an avid role player, I thought to myself that buying a dice bag would be free of problems. After all, someone who needs a dice bag has dozens upon dozens of dice that need a sizeable bag to pop them in.

Not so, it seems ...

What you get here for £3.95 plus (get this) £3.90 postage and packaging is a 10cm square piece of linen with a screen print on it which is delivered in a envelope from Poland. So, the bag nowhere near big enough for purpose (it would be filled by less than a dozen dice) and is highly overpriced for what it is. To add to this, the postage and packaging is in itself a rip-off. Ultimately, I've spent £8 on a tiny piece of low quality cloth and feel completely ripped off by the P&P. Oh, and it took 9 days (yes NINE) to turn up ... I bought a Pound of Dice from Chessex at the same time and it showed up within 48 hours for £3.30 postage and packaging.

Do yourself a favour and NEVER buy from these people.
