5.0 out of 5 stars Car-crash TV at it's very best, 27 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What can I say about this film that has not already been said. Nothing really. Feels a little bit redundant, a review after all these years but I watched this film again with my 17 year old son whose doing film-studies at college. He'd just seen 'This is England' so I bought this and told him 'this WAS England. Watch it and learn something'.

The film has a great cast, is well written and acted, is realisic, gritty, shocking and raw. The central charater of Trevor is both a terrific and terrifying creation because I am afraid we can all recognise him as someone we have either met or seen from a distance (whilst walking quicky in the other direction). Someone you don't make eye contact with. A problem of society. A scurge to be locked up or rehabilitated?

It is a simply stunning performance by Tim Roth at the tender age of 21 (it's hard to belive he was already a dad by this point) and the way the film is made, it feels more like a documentary. I'm not sure you can actually enjoy a film like this (it's a bit like watching a car-crash - you're not sure whether you want to see it but you can't look away either). However, you can appreciate the skill with which it was put together. It's great TV.

The story goes that Tim Roth got this role by accident after wandering into the theatre where auditions were taking place to borrow a bicycle pump. I'm so glad he got that flat tyre as I couldn't imagine anyone else playing this role.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny, charming piece of quirky film-making., 27 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: What If [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
Alot of rom-coms should be called romantic dramas because the comedy is so gentle that it makes you smile rather than laugh. This film has equal quantities of romance and comedy and does both very well indeed. What made Daniel Radcliffe choose this project? He must have been offered a few hundred rom-coms, right? The answer is probably the script which is laugh out loud hilarious in places. I like Daniel. He doesn't seem to take himself too seriously and is quite happy to poke fun at himself for the sake of his art. There is a fantastic chemistry with Zoe Kazan and the whole film, which is mostly shot in Canada (with the exception of a few scenes in Ireland) has a low-budget, indie realism to it which I really enjoyed. It's not glossy, it's a little but edgy, despite it's formulaic rom-com story-line. The dialogue sounds very natural, like the actors are working without a script and are just saying what's on their minds. They are not of course but it's a testament to their acting that it feels that way. I can definately recommend this film and I will be buying the DVD or Blu-Ray to watch again.

The rest of the cast is very good too. The scene with Wallace getting relationship advice from his flat-mate played by Adam Driver made me laugh out loud in the cinema and I also liked the beach scene with Chantry ('I'll show you mine if you show me yours'),

Give this film a look and I'm sure you won't be disappointed. It's one to buy, keep on your DVD shelf and take down to watch when you really need cheering up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic detail....great fun to build., 18 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Took me about three hours to build this for my son but it was worth it. Great toy with amazing detail. Recommended but too many bricks for a small child to build. They will need help. Some of the parts are built twice like two arms, two legs, It may be nice to build them step by step together so they get a taste for LEGO building and realise that it is time-consumming but satisfying when you see the finished build.

Bought as a present for my brother who'd had no end of trouble with a long line of MP3s made by Creative Zen. He's very happy with it. It has been reliable, sounds good, easy to use, nice little screen and, for a Chelsea Fan, the most important feature - IT'S BLUE!!! Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun but it's not a toy!!, 18 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought as a first watch for my son who thinks it's a toy so it spends as much time in his hands as it does on his wrist. It comes with spare links and builds easily so will fit any size wrist. Warning though. Some of the parts can break quite easily. He's already broken the catch and snapped a bit off the Batman link but you can go on clic-time's website and order spare parts which do come in no time at all. You just need to upload a copy of your receipt and send it to them with an on-line form. All in all, a fun item. Recommended.

Nice, dinky plu for my son's new electric shaver. Fits in a small space between two chunkier plugs and the black finish will ensure it doesn't turn that horrible yellow colour. Very happy with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last, something from this talented young man, 26 Nov. 2014

This review is from: The Long Road Home (MP3 Download)
Saw this guy on 'The Voice' a couple of years ago and loved everything about him, from the sound of his voice to the twinkle in his eye. As per usual, the ones you like don't get far and the ones who favour vocal gymnastics (groan, groan,) do. Nadeem was eliminated in the battle round, despite being head and shoulders better thean the other guy (whose name escapes me). He just sings from the heart and you can tell from the pain in his voice that he's had a hard time and come out the other side, older, wiser and defiant. However, there is a gravelly, richness and tenderness to his voice that sends tingles down my spine and he plays the guitar with real passion too. Been looking out for something from him ever since and stumbled across this EP. What a bargain at £3.95. Worth every penny. Can't wait for him to do a whole album but this will keep me going until that day comes around. Well done Nadeem.
