5.0 out of 5 stars 'some people hate the english i dont they're just wankers', 8 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Trainspotting [DVD] [1996] (DVD)
its mint stuff here, makes you proud to be british! everything is on top form in this film, great performances all round great plot great direction. If you dont know by now trainspotting is about life on heroin it shows us all the pressures of heroin: Trying to quit, getting addicted, ODing, drug-trade, and the joyous benifits of drug addiction.
Its all about Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) struggle with the drug. his mates: Sick Boy and Spud (Ewen Bremner) also struggle with heroin they all hang out at mother superiors getting shots, but when things start to happen around them (spud goin to prison, sick boy's baby dies and their friend dies) it makes them especially renton think: choose life. renton tries to escape it all by heading to london to start a new life but psycho Begbie (Robert Carlyle)and sick boy will never let that happen.
Amazing performances all round and it really does make you think about the damages heroin does. they should of showed that to us at school instead of showing us those 'learn about drugs'.
Trainspotting is a classic, a must have in any DVD collection. 'HE SHOOTS HE SCORES'

5.0 out of 5 stars im Johnny! Johnny the sex donkey!, 26 Oct. 2004
the first episode i saw i loved this comedy, there isnt much new good comedies around, if you like the ones such as men behaving badly, royle family, the office and im alan partridge then this is another you should add to that list, its about 5 19/20 yr olds: Johnny, Janet, Gaz, Donna and Louise each episode would guarentee a laugh, series 3 is my favourite: janet quits smoking, johnny looks for a job with a classic scene with an oap and a roll of tissue, Gaz meets his brother munch (HIYA!!), louise meets david fish (wernt he tad on neighbours????) and Donna plans for a kinky night code word: Kangaroo!
there are some great episodes.

4.0 out of 5 stars fun fun fun.... could of been funnier, 16 Oct. 2004
i liked around the world, i saw it twice at the flicks and i enjoyed it both times. jackie chan (passport two) did his usual stunts, i guess you dont really get tired of them seeing that he tries out something new each time, this time was with a hat and paint etc
many say steve coogan (Im Alan Partridge) wasnt the perfect choice for phileas fogg. i reckon he took the role on pretty well, cameos included john clease, owen and luke wilson, mark addy, rob schneider and a pretty pointless cameo by arnold schwarzenegger (c'mon u have u have to agree wid me here)tho it was fun to see.
Co stars: cecile de france, jim broadbent (gangs of new york) and ewen bremner (trainspotting) all gave brilliant perfomances too. But for me the dissapointment was the ending, it was really camp, they could of shown the news of phileas and co around the world so we can see the cameos one more time eg: owen and luke wilson can be saying: 'they stole our idea' u could say thts a sad idea but i feal it needed to be done to complete it. But on the whole it was a good film

5.0 out of 5 stars Stallone is Rambo.. sorry Willis is John McLane (same thing), 16 Sept. 2004
This is the 2nd time ive reviewed this film, simply because its one of my favourites. how can anyone doubt this film? i mean one man vs. everyone else.... ok even i am getting tired of these 'Rambo' heroes like James Bond, but theres a BIG difference between John McLane and James Bond simply being: McLane gets hurt, he bleeds, he gets tired, hes a normal bloke. And try and think of a bond film where he actually gets a scratch on him, i cant really think of one. So thats one reason why this film is one of the true greats.
I dont think anyone else can play the role as McLane as well as Bruce Willis can. In my opinion like i have said in my video review i did for this film some time ago; my main reason for how briliant this film is is Alan Rickmans portrayal of Hans Kroeber, its his tone and facial expressions that make this 'baddie' come alive, if i had a top ten 'baddie' list, theres no doubt that hans would be in the top five.
lastly the dvd has sooooo many extras to keep you entertained, watch Die Hard and be amazed, the 2nd two didnt quite meet the standards that this film made but own the trilogy anyway. Enjoy the film YIPPEE KAY-YAY!!

5.0 out of 5 stars its bad luck if i land in it, believe tht!, 19 May 2004
This review is from: Blue Streak [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
OK what shud i really say about this film?? Martin Lawrence: A robber who plays a Cop to get a diamond. thts all i can say apart from you're guarenteed laughs especially when "The Hot pizza is coming through" who they say on the DVD is played by martins cousin, but nah only Martin Lawrence could have teeth like that (no offence to anyone who took that seriously and martin if you come on amazon.co.uk and the chances of that are very slim, then man i didnt mean it, ur teeth are special lol) ok i advise anyone who's seen his films either Bad Boys or National Security well all of them to watch it, if you dont know Martin Lawrence..... Then u better know him now!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars could you risk it?, 7 April 2004
what can i say about Dirty Sanchez, its Jackass 10x more brutal after 10seconds you watch it your reation is what the hells wrong with these people but disgust quickly turns to amusement. Dirty Sanchez is funny because its sick. my favourite is prob Pritchard every1 seems to pick on him and its funny well obviously not for him. Watch Dirty Sanchez before you buy it on Dvd. and i suggest you dont eat anything especially Pizza (those who watch it know what i mean by that) You need a strong stomach for this

5.0 out of 5 stars #4 - Greatest Film ever made, 30 Mar. 2004
This film is a classic from Hollywood Hotshot Director: Quentin Tarintino. This film is basically showing life on the streets of L.A i think thats where is is. There are 3 storys in this film. Story 1, Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield - 2 hitmen doing a job. Story 2, Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace - Vincent taking his boss' wife out to lunch and what happened afterwards. And Story 3, Butch Coolidge and Marsellus Wallace - a boxer who was paid to lose by marsellus but won instead so he goes on the run. This film is a most own with an all star cast including John Travolta, Samuel L Jackson, Uma Thurman, Ving Rhames, Harvey Kietel and Bruce Willis. And I insist you get this collectors edition because its packed with extras.

2.0 out of 5 stars hmm how can i describe it ??, 30 Mar. 2004
Eight legged freaks is a fun film with a good plot. What let it down was the acting. I mean come on if a 10ft spider was wrapping you up in his web wouldnt you scream? hardly anyone was screaming in this film and to be honest its not every day 10ft spiders are chasing you so you cant help but scream if they get you. well the film is ok watch it one friday evening you could even watch it in the dark, this film wont scare you. If you're like me and have a thing for spiders then watch Arachnophobia and be scared. I mean a deadly poisonous spider in your home town yeah its possible but 10ft spiders?? NO WAY!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heaven on 6 Disks, 24 Mar. 2004
Theres no doubt about it that Lord of the Rings has to be the greatest story ever told (so sue me christianity) the books are wonderfully written. J.R.R Tolkein had so much imagination. but for years this wonderful tale became lost to many people. lots didnt know what the lord of the rings was about, ok if you're like me then the hobbit was was one of the first books you read and if you know the hobbit you know abit of lord of the rings. Its the best fantasy trilogy ever made. But like i said many didnt know it until one director named Peter Jackson (whose early films are The Frighteners and Bad Taste)came up with the idea of bringing J.R.R Tolkeins masterpeice to life and it was the best idea hes ever done earning him a place in the best directors next to steven spielberg, george lucas and stanley kubrick.
The Lord of the Rings has become a global phenomenom these past 3 years. And i cant deny it. LOTR has changed the course of cinema. After fellowship came out 2001, george lucas' star wars even though it came out around 6mths after didnt stand a chance... well that and because the film itself is crap. the special effects in LOTR has broken limits we see this in the greatest creation on middle earth: Gollum played by the magnificent Andy Serkis. The two towers showed how cinema technology has now changed. Return of the King showed how a story ended and it ended really well. Star Wars: The Return of the jedi never had that impact.
I was so upset that all 3 films are over because after watching fellowship it gave me something to look forward for the same after watching two towers i looked forward to see Return of the king but now i have nothing to look forward for well The Hobbit if they make it but even if they do it wont be for years and theres so much in the hobbit that it could ruin the hobbit if they rush everything. We saw a great trilogy made, everything is 10/10 and it definately deserves 5 stars this trilogy is the greatest trilogy ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just because he's different, 17 Mar. 2004
In my opinion this has got to be Tim Burtons best film it also has to be Johnny Depps best, even though he's hilarious in Pirates of the Carribean he does to go a bit over the top in that role but this role he plays Edward perfect. Edward Scissorhands is one of my favourite films ever. Its a film that can make you laugh and can make you cry. The story is about Edward who was created by an inventor (respectfully played by Vincent Price )Edward wasnt created perfect he had scissors for hands. I dont get why the inventor didnt give him hands when gave him everything else eg: eyes, feet, hair etc. Anyway the inventor died before Edward could be completed. Ever since then Edward lived alone until a kind lady Peg took him home to live with her and her family. At first everyone is took to Edward, but the novelty soon wears off. But only one person Kim (Beautifully played by Winona Ryder) loves Edward for who he is on the inside. The film deserves 5 stars, watch it and try and be man enough not to shed a tear at the end. Edward Scissorhands Rules!
