5.0 out of 5 stars THE best, 10 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Grandia (Video Game)
This game is THE best RPG of all time. While i absolutely love Final Fantasy i think Grandia is better. As a series Final Fantasy is better, but if you picked a single Final Fantasy game and compared it to Grandia, i think Grandia will always be better. The storyline is like no other and the characters are loveable. I wish that this game would have been made into a series with Justin, Sue and Feena going off on other adventures.

5.0 out of 5 stars STUNNING, 19 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Okami (PS2) (Video Game)
I bought this game expecting stunning graphics and fantastic gameplay and that is exactly what i got. I will not go into what the story is and the details of the celestial brush as other people have done that i just wanted to say what a groundbreaking game this is. The graphics are some of the best i've ever seen and the story is based on Japanese legend.

Okami is the first game to really make an impact on me since way back in 2001 when Grandia was released over here. Since then it has never been replaced as my number 1 game until Okami.

Words cannot describe how breathtaking this game is. This game is what every single game in the future will aspire to be.

Okami is God

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Album Ever??, 13 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Ys (Audio CD)
This album from the amazingly talented Joanna Newsom could well be the best album i have heard in all my life. When i heard that the album would be ochestrated i was over the moon. Harp and strings-one fantastic combination. When i found out the album would only have 5 songs, but be around 55 minutes in length i didn't know if it would be such a good album. I was totally wrong. These tremendously long songs are masterpieces. Joanna's voice seems to have matured since The Milk Eyed Mender and she no longer sounds like she's in pain, although i did totally love her voice anyway. After listening to this album i was in shock. I couldn't bevlieve that anything this wonderful could ever have been made. Ys is truly an epic masterpiece that should be listened to by everyone and it is by far the best album i have ever heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 26 Sept. 2006
I watched this film last night and i have to say the only other film i have ever seen in my life that has made an impression on me is A Snake of June. Dancer in the Dark totally knocks A Snake of June off the top of my favourite movies list. It's a beautiful and compelling film with a fantastic musical score. I have to admit there's quite a bit of cheese with the songs, but it does really make the film. I do think that this film is powerful enough on it's own without the songs, but, as it is just an insight into Selma's mind it doesn't really interfeer with the film. Bjork gives a phenomenal perfomance as Selma and i have not seen acting like this for a while. The ending is spectacular and heartbreaking and will stick with you forever. If you forget the rest of the film i guarantee you won't forget the end. If you only do one thing before you die watch this film, as it is in the list of 1001 films to see before you die and i think everyone should do just that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than ER, 27 Aug. 2006
I have to say this is the best T.V series that has been on T.V for years. It has fantastic characters and fantastic storylines. Some of the episodes contain some weird illnesses, but somehow it manages to pull them off. If these were shown in any other medical drama you'd think "what the hell is this?!" but Grey's Anatomy pulls it off and leaves you in awe. You really care about the characters in it and the scripts are very well written. Some episodes are very upsetting, but others are very uplifting and on some occasions you will be laughing hysterically at just the smallest thing someone will say. I have never enjoyed a television show so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING, 16 Jan. 2006
This review is from: A Snake Of June [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
this film is my favourite film ever. Like most Japanese films this is quite confusing and might take a few viewings to actually understand what's happening. This shouldn't put you off though as it is a fascinating and compelling film. I must warn people that it does contain strong scenese of a sexual nature and if you are uncomfortable with this you should approach with caution. My friends refer to it as "japanese porn" which it totally isn't. It is an artistic journey into hidden desires and voyeurism. An amazing, beautiful, compelling thriller with a fantastic musical score. This IS for fans of the Japanese cinema.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING, 4 Oct. 2005
I love this album. I heard of Goldfinger, as a lot of people did, through the Tony Hawks game. I heard Superman and i'd always sing along to it. I had this for my birthday two days ago and, because i am a vegetarian my favourite song is Open Your Eyes. My vegan friend also likes this song and we try and force out views on people although we shouldn't and now we have Goldfingers help hahahaha. I reccomend this album to anyone who has only just discovered Goldfinger, as it gives the best songs of their career.

5.0 out of 5 stars TERRIFYING, 4 Oct. 2005
This review is from: The Grudge 2 (Ju-On) [DVD] (DVD)
I watched this film last night and i was expecting it to be rubbish, as many sequels are. I can honestly say for the first time that i know of the sequel has outdone the original. This has now become the scariest film i have seen, it was previously Dark Water. This film has more surprises than the first especially the end scene. I would definately reccomend this to anyone who liked the first and especially to those who liked the American remake as this is miles better. I now have to watch The Grudge unrated extended directors cut and i don't think it will be scary enough to beat this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING, 24 Sept. 2005
This review is from: The Grudge [DVD] (DVD)
This film has got to be one of the scariest films i've ever seen. The American remake really didn't capture the effect that this had. I won't described the story, but i'll tell you it's brilliant and the scares are frequent. This film also captures something the American doesn't. It really makes you feel sorry for Kayako, because of her brutal murder. The end really freaked me out and it is much more scarier than the end of the American. This film isn't as jumpy as the American, but it is definately a worthy contribution to the "J-Horror" genre and is on a par with the Ringu films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scariest film i've ever seen!, 24 Sept. 2005
This review is from: Dark Water [2003] [DVD] (DVD)
This is the scariest film i've ever seen at the moment anyway. It is extremely creepy and i couldn't sleep after it. I watched it with my cousin and she is not scared of horror films at all, but she was running round the living room screaming and then at the end she jumped on me and screamed. the neighbours probably thought we were being murdered. She wouldn't go to the toilet on her own after it and she told me to put the lights on. This film will totally freak you out!
