5.0 out of 5 stars As unique and bizarre as Dax himself, but a complete joy nonetheless!!, 16 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I will preface this short review by stating that Dax Flame is a truly unique individual. And like comedian Bo Burnham says, "he is literally the most brilliant person ever, or the most brilliant person ever in a different way" Either Dax a lifelong performance piece or he is a genuine guy. It's probably a mixture of the two...

This book is short and sweet and it's with a degree of sadness that it is finished so soon. It is a very unique book - part diary, part fiction, part instructional video series (honestly!)... and it feels very nostalgic throughout. It's life-affirming and a joy to read

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful series - Proud to be from Northumberland, 23 Dec. 2013
Whether or not it's true, people in the North tend to think we get bad press. Robson Green and the whole production team have done a stirling job and showcasing the very best of Northumberland. Would make a superb gift for any Northumbrian that you know!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great product, poor bottle design, 22 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I agree with another reviewer here about the design for the bottle. The pop-up lid is very weak and will easily open without much pressure. As a result I lost quite a bit of the shampoo in my bag, and that was a deal breaker for me. I won't be buying this product in the current design again, even though it is an excellent shampoo, works well for a reasonable price.

Fix the bottle and I'll buy again

Product 5/5, Design 2/5

3.0 out of 5 stars An average fps, an interesting bond game., 20 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
007 Legends has garnered almost universal negative reception from critics, with the brunt of the criticism levied at the 'Call of Duty' style gameplay. I understand this. 007 Legends deliberately mimics Call of Duty in numerous instances, from the way Bond moves, to the class system in multiplayer. It was the four-player split screen that really attracted me to this game, memories of Nightfire driving my thirst. The multiplayer is by far the worst thing about this game. It has none of the charm the old games had, no crazy weapons or gadgets and no self guided rocket launcher!!

The campaign is actually ok. Yes it's a poor man's COD, but it is fun be Bond and experience the classic moments from the films. I've played the first two missions and I am willing to stick with this game. Will probably sell after completion though.

One day they'll make a truly decent James Bond game again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, but will some very small flaws, 12 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bet you've made your mind up already about whether or not to buy this. Well you should. Really I want to rate this product 4.5/5.

It's a fantastic show that really should be a set piece in any TV or film lovers home. The effort, and money put into it makes a truly awesome spectacle that emerges the viewer right into WWII.

The only major flaw is that you don't get to bond with the characters as much as you'd like; even as soon as you've discovered their names, they've been shot, or blown up. This in itself can be turned into a positive because it helps display the harsh realities of war.

I also love that a *lot* of the Americans are in fact British. Any fan of BBC drama will see a few familiar faces in BoB.

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I watched this, 11 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When this film was released in the UK, my friend, who loves Chinese cinema was desperate to see it. Reluctantly I agreed to see this movie with him. To cut a long story short, that was a very good decision. Even the shortened to western consumption version was outstanding.

When I found this extended version I didn't even hesitate to buy it... and what a *fantastic* price for a blu-ray

This movie is beautifully shot and really makes you appreciate how much effort, and money went into this film. With a budget of 7 BILLION yuan, this was the most expensive oriental movie ever.

No more needs to be said really, but buy it, watch it, and savour it. It will remain in your heart for a long, long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fixing issues with this toy, 9 May 2010
When I heard about this product, the first thing I did was to check it out on Amazon and on the BBC shop. Amidst the one star and five star reviews that seem to plague user generated reviews where ever you look it became obvious there was a problem with the lights and or sound.

These reviews put me off this product greatly but my curiosity got the better of me and I purchased it anyway.
When it arrived I knew at any moment I could face disappointment that so many other customers had experienced and apart from an *absurd* battery system the toy seems to work fine.

However after about one hour the dreaded problems came, the hidden button on the bottom of this toy, that activates the FX when the screwdriver it extended, failed.

It seems I have found a solution for this issue: The toy is not broken, just poorly assembled. Follow these steps to determine whether the product is broken, or in my case, just assembled out of place.

1) Turn the handle one tenth to the right to release the battery slot.
2) Remove the top half of the toy and pull the 'green' bar downward so the screwdriver is no longer extended
3) Look for two small black buttons on the top and bottom of this green bar. Press them. If the sound works and the lights shine, the toy is not broken. [If when pressed nothing happens, try new batteries, if the problem persists, return the product.]

What happens is if the button on the bottom of the lower half of the screwdriver is not lined up exactly with the lower button on the green bar, then the toy will not work.

Some fiddling and gently placing pressure will mean these buttons will line up and the toy will work.

Hope this helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Answers a Christians questions, and both enlightens and chills, 3 Feb. 2010
Firstly, if you are considering buying this book do so. Even if you come away a skeptic you will not be able to deny it is meticulously researched and sourced. Dr. Thomas has put a huge amount of effort into this work and that alone makes it worth a read.

Secondly, it makes clear and precise connections between the events of Genesis Chapter 6 and the eventual return of Jesus Christ. It will illuminate you, startle you and terrify you in equal measure.

Any Christian who has so far ignored the issue of the Nephillim or UFO's, buy this, take note, and tell others.

5.0 out of 5 stars If this doesn't win a BAFTA..... I'll be very suprised, 1 July 2009
This review is from: Occupation [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
It was a brave move for the BBC to show a new drama in one week, but it worked. Occupation is perhaps one of the best dramas to come out of the UK for years. The acting is first rate, the script is heart-renching and the music is powerful and effective

Also a good move for the beeb to release this so soon onto DVD, so we don't have to wait.

However gave this one star, is a nutter.

I cried for minutes at the last scene!
