4.0 out of 5 stars Quality Album, 31 Oct. 2008
This review is from: The Hawk Is Howling (Audio CD)
Listened to this on the bands myspace page and then bought the album the very next day its superb.Stand out tracks for me(and they're all good)are Scotlands shame,the precipice and the sun smells too loud.This is the first Mogwai record I've bought it wont be the last.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unnerving, 17 Oct. 2008
This review is from: The Innocents [1961] [DVD] (DVD)
A very good movie,which had my hairs standing on end a few times!I bought this dvd on the strength of the reviews on amazon and elsewhere I was not disapointed.The sinister atmosphere that film has from beginning is quite remarkable as it is sustained throughout.Is this a ghost story or the story of young woman slowly mentally unraveling ? The film is abiguous on this point and leaves the final decision up to the viewer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not scary but still good, 16 Oct. 2008
I think The Fog has dated quite significantly and lost some of its bite that said its still an entertaining ghost story.Hal Holbrook steals the show as the dotty priest consumed with heredtary guilt.A nice slice of 80's horror.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth Watching, 16 Oct. 2008
This review is from: High Plains Drifter [DVD] (DVD)
High Plains Drifter is a cracking western not for the easily offended,it definately deserves its 18 rating.Clints performance as the Stranger is excellent,a rather nasty hero to say the least.The film flows well throughout and is well directed by Clint himself.Not Eastwoods best but well worth a watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality of the highest order, 14 Oct. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ice Cold In Alex [DVD] (DVD)
This is a fantastic film full of tension and drama.I watched Ice Cold many years ago with my Granda who happened to be a desert rat.we both loved it.Watching it again now it has'nt lost any of its magic John Mills is superb as Capt Anson and Sylvia Simms is just Gorgeous throughout.The film is full of great scenes including one where Sylia Simms lets the Ambulance slide down a steep sand bank after the group had spent torturous hours getting it towards the summit.The scene in the bar at the end of the movie which was used for a Carlsberg ad some years ago is an absoloute classic.So glad I bought this DVD well worth six quid.

4.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding drama, 11 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Control [DVD] (DVD)
I found this film very easy to watch considering the grim subject matter.The film is beautifully shot and the black and white works.The performances of the main characters are excellent, Sam Riley and Samantha Morton are particularly good.Toby Kebbell's performace as Rob Gretton also deserves a mention.I feel this movie will appeal mostly to fans of the band but it is also worth a watch if you are not, as the film is an outstanding drama.I would also highly recommend Deborah Curtis' book Touching from a Distance,the inspiration for this film

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Western, 11 Oct. 2008
I enjoyed this movie,its not a classic but has some fast paced action and some good set pieces.It can be bit daft at times, but not a bad way to while a way nearly 2 hours


Foxtrot Oscar
Foxtrot Oscar
by Charlie Owen
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.89

4.0 out of 5 stars More of the same, 27 July 2008
This review is from: Foxtrot Oscar (Paperback)
Foxtrot Oscar is equally as good but not better than Horse's Arse.It has the same blend of violence and humour.The central story of a turkish gangster teaming up with the park royal mafia is padded out with a few anecdotal tales of Handsteads finest.I'm starting to get a real feel for some of the characters and I'm really looking forward part three in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top Read, 27 July 2008
This review is from: Horse's Arse (Paperback)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book,its not normally something I would go for but I judged the book by the cover,Im glad I did. Horse's Arse is a funny fast paced action packed breeze of a read.The book is very graphic in its depiction of violence and the language is a bit choice so if you're easily offended dont bother,if not, pile in, its a great book.
