4.0 out of 5 stars Ecxellent, 22 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I feel like many of the negative reviews here are missing the point a bit. Just to be clear, this isn't a J-horror style film, nor is it a shaky cam film. Yes it's made out to be filmed by a documentary maker, shooting a preacher's last exorcism, in which he reveals the cons behind his trade. He does this because he feels that exorcism is more harmful to the subjects than good. For about half of the film this particular case appears to be just another person with issues, mistakenly thinking they're possessed. The preacher goes through the motions and all seems to be well. Then things get weird. I won't say any more but even at that point it's not clear if what you're seeing is supernatural or not.

I think some may criticise the ending. Although it is a tad cliched I think it works well and it fits this kind of movie. This movie was given largely positive reviews from critics on it's release. I think fans of slow burning horrors will love this.


Greydon Clark Drive-In [DVD] [US Import]
Greydon Clark Drive-In [DVD] [US Import]

3.0 out of 5 stars Greydon Clark., 27 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Low budget 70's cinema double features. These look good in your DVD collection and provide mild amusement during the first and likely only time you watch them. This Greydon Clark "Drive-In" double feature however is actually good. It's still cheesy 70's low budget cinema but they're decent movies that have all the charm you expect from these kind of releases but with more talent than you ussually see.

Hi-Riders is about rebels racing tuned up muscle cars and causing mayhem, something like a biker gang with cars. The Bad Bunch is a cop movie focusing on racial tensions between blacks and whites. Both are written and directed by Greydon Clark.

This actually made me grow four heads, none of which had any special powers. Although it did cure the headache on my first head. If you want to have four heads then this is the stuff for you. I does what I says on the tin. Please release a 1head variant so I can return to my previous form.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does you controller randomly switch off? Look no further., 24 Feb. 2009
My controller kept switching off while playing Street Fighter, even with new batteries in it. It'd switch off during an online match and I'd get spammed with Fireballs and DP's while I frantically tried to get it switched on again. More often than not it would cost me the match and my opponent would leave feeling like a god. Enough was enough. I went for this item and it solved the problem. It also saves money on betteries. Highly recommended.

This review is from: You Don't Know - Ninja Cuts (CD-R)
I really love this compilation. It's a great guide to the music of the Ninja Tune label. I added quite a few albums to my wish list after listening to this. This is a must buy, particularly if you like quality electronic and hip-hop music.

2.0 out of 5 stars ITrip, 19 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wasn't impressed with this product. There is too much noise and the clarity is quite poor. The RoadTrip is a better product than this although it is more expensive. Some people might prefer the design of the iTrip due to it being a cable and therefore quite mobile but I found it untidy looking. A feature worth pointing out is that you can save four frequencies on the iTrip and change between them at the press of a button. If you save these frequencies into your car radio it makes changing frequencies on the go very quick and simple.

Something I noticed is that whenever I touch the cable or pick up my iPod while it's playing, the noise comes through the car speakers. I'd skip this product and check out the RoadTrip. It's worth the extra money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hell's Angels, 14 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a brutally frank book on the infamous Hell's Angels outlaw motorcycle club. Thompson spent a year hanging out with the Angels in order to write this book. All the layers of mystique surrounding the gang are peeled back to reveal the reality. He does an excellent job of pinning down what the Hell's Angels are all about. He doesn't go for the images then favoured by the media, which either accused them of being all kinds of evil; nor does he for one second entertain the idea that they're heroic road knights and the last vestige of hope for some kind of idealistic american dream. What we have is a great piece of gonzo journalism and no doubt one of the best insights you're likely to find into the world of the outlaw motorcycle gang.

5.0 out of 5 stars Death Proof, 5 Jan. 2009
Death Proof is a criminally under rated movie. People have accused it of being boring but I disagree. Although most of it is people just hanging out in a bar, the characters and dialogue are fun and interesting (fans of Kurt Russell should love this movie), the dusty Austin setting is perfect and every scene is filled with the kind of detail that makes repeat viewings rewarding. The two main story arcs are capped off with some great car action. Kurts car for the first part of the film surely ranks as one of the coolest in film history. Both Planet Terror and Death Proof are excellent movies and make for a terrific double bill. As they're both now available at low prices you should buy both but if you buy only one of them i'd reccommend this.

I bought this set just for the nostalgia. I forgot how joyous it can be. It has something that's lacking from current childrens television. It has optimism, a feeling that life is wonderfull. It encourages you to appreciate every little thing in the world. I don't want to sound too sappy but it really put a huge smile on my face when I watched it after so many years. It's lost none of it's charm. As a child some of the humour was lost on me. There's honestly some laugh out loud moments in this that adds to the appeal for adults like me seeking to relive a bit of thier childhood. If you don't want to get this for yourself, then get it for your kids. It's surely better than some of the brainwashing nonsense on tv today such as Teletubbies (a show surely created for stoners rather than children). I look forward to more volumes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very minor spoilers., 20 Dec. 2008
A Requiem is a mass for the departed. This movie's title, Requiem For A Dream, should give you an idea of the themes it contains. It tells the story of four people who's lives are destroyed by addiction. Harry Goldfarb (Jared Leto) and his friend Tyrone (Marlon Wayans) plan to make it big by selling drugs. Harry's loving girlfriend Marion (Jennifer Connelly) has visions of designing clothes. Harry's lonely mother Sara (Ellen Burstyn) is given a reason to be happy after recieving an invite to take part in a TV show. She embarks on a mission to lose weight to fit into her favourite red dress for the occasion. Her doctor prescribes pills to aid the weight loss. These are people who had hopes and dreams of a better life. Dreams that they sacrifice bit by bit for the short term fix of a drug or other vice. There's a powerfull sense of loss at the end. The loss of the lives these people should have had. During one scene in the film Marlon Wayans' character reflects on a moment he had with his mother as a child. Sitting on her lap, little Tyrone confidently promises her that he'll make it big.

I found this film to be intense and moving. The performances from the four leads are strong. We see the lives of the four characters through short, sometimes jarring, scenes. The performances are effective because at the start of the film they are people with a plan for life ahead. As it all slowly ebbs away, the increasingly dark tone of the film is reflected excellently in thier performances.

The film is scored by Clint Mansell. The main theme, Lux Aeterna, is a brilliant piece of music that fits the film perfectly. It's now quite famous and has featured in several films, trailers and such since Requiem For A Dream's release. The score really takes this film to another level. I think that the theme in this film is something many people will relate to. Requiem For A Dream is one of those films that everybody should watch.
