4.0 out of 5 stars These decals look really good and come in a variety of shapes and sizes, 18 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These decals look really good and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Do note however that they are transparent decals and so will only be most effective on a white/cream background (if your device is black or grey it wont really work). My review would be 5 star but I do think the packaging makes the Vader and Stormtrooper decals seem a tad bigger than they actually are! Overall though a quality decal set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a plastic mat....but it's really good!, 9 Jun. 2013
When I opened the packaging to the Sphex I though i'd been short changed and spent £15 on a fancy bit on flat plastic....And that's essentially what the Sphex is. However its rough coating makes it the best mouse experience I have ever used. After this I will never go back to traditional 'foam' mouse mats.

The Sphex makes mouse tracking a breeze, and the simple change in surface makes for a more sensitive and accurate experience (even if you have a basic mouse). It's like gliding on teflon! Its great for gamers, and has an adhesive backing too (although in my opinion it's fine with the sticker film still on).

Materially expensive for what it is, but it certainly delivers!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Film, Great Blu-Ray Shame About this Version, 5 Jun. 2012
Whilst I think cult classic The Warriors is a 5 star film, this Blu-Ray is both a blessing and a disappointment.

Where this Blu-Ray version shines is the quality of the HD transfer. Despite being quite a gritty, low budget film The Warriors has never looked better, and this is one of the most impressive Blu-Rays I have seen. Every cut, bruise and bead of sweat is visible as the Warriors try and make their way across New York's badlands to safety. Particularly beautiful are how detailed the neon/city lights look reflected in the wet street shots. It's an absolute A-List transfer, with a great making of documentary that features the significant cast and crew. On this Blu-Ray The Warriors still looks low-budget and gritty, yet looks a million dollars at the same time.

But then there's the 'Ultimate Director's Cut' aspect. In the introduction Walter Hill expresses that he's not a huge fan of Directors Cuts, but he has taken the opportunity to add inserts to the film to make it more what he intended. Whilst the structure of the film is respectfully left intact, added are a prologue that references the Greek mythology basis of the story, and numerous Comic scene edits between scenes to emphasize the movies Graphic Novel traditions. The principle isn't bad but the comic book affects are poorly integrated with the aesthetic of the film, it feels too much like 2010s digital technology being superimposed onto a 70s movie. As another reviewer said if the comic transitions had been hand drawn the effect would have been much better. To what extent this change may annoy you will vary. For myself it was merely irksome, but I can see some purists being outraged. By no means is it a Lucas style messing around with the original, but i'd have much preferred an option to turn off the effects. A non-edited original cut with this Blu-Ray would be the best version

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Edition From Russel Ash, 8 Oct. 2008
Just received this latest edition of the long running 'Top 10 of Everything' series, and as always its nicely produced, laid out and thoroughly researched.

There is a good 'now and then' comparison feature, in which 2008 is compared with 1988 to see how our world is changing and evolving. For example 20 years ago no countries average life expectancy hit the 80 year mark. Now ALL the top 10 do.

The facts and figures are immense, and Ash's work is as exhaustive as ever. Every few pages you are left with a 'Wow! I never knew that' moment.

HOWEVER I must criticise the publishers and general retailers with this series. They always seem to market it as a book for children and young teenagers, and a 'fun fact' book, but it is more in depth than this. Of course there is the usual fodder about Top goalscorers, and largest dinosaurs etc., but there are some truly sobering statistics that adults will appreciate and get an indication of the worlds issues (HIV rates, rates of deforestation, gun crime etc.)

Yes it's a good kids book, but it truly is for all ages. On a side note it's also a good investment if like me you compile/participate in pub quizzes. Another great addition to the series, and ideal present.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Unique & Compelling Game ......And Very Original, 20 Mar. 2008
This review is from: No More Heroes (Wii) (Video Game)
The easy part of this review is to tell you how great this game is.

The hard part is to describe exactly what 'No More Heroes' is. The game is a melting pot of Tarantino style violence, Manga visuals, and a punk image. The game also seems to be one of the first satirical games i've ever played. Suda 51's game comments on how de-sensitized to violence we all are. This is reflected in-game as you go from the banality of coconut collection to walking into a high-street assasination agency as if it were like walking into your local newsagents.

The original quirks of this game are surprising and plentiful. Whether its saving your progress on the toilet, using your wii-mote like a phone or stroking your pet kitten the game can seem delightfully bonkers!

No More Heroes is a great, stylish 'hack 'em up' that is surely the Wiis first proper adult game. Be warned, just because the blood has been removed for the PAL release, the violence is still quite visceral and strong language and sexual references remain.

I'm not going to give the game 5 stars because the GTA style driving parts are dogged by some dips in framerate and a few muddy textures. But this is a minor point.

Highly Reccomended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Definitive Collection For The Definitive Version, 29 Dec. 2007
Wow! Got this for Christmas, and its an essential purchase for all Blade Runner fans.

The main focus for this release is the definitive 'final cut' from Ridley Scott, where he corrects the catalogue of studio imposed changes from 1982, and his rushed 1992 'Directors Cut'.

What is so refreshing about this box-set is that Scott holds his hands up and realises that many fans are divided on which version they prefer, and so there's one simple solution to satisfying everyone..... include them all!

Unlike George Lucas' treatment of Star Wars (who keeps tweaking the his original trilogy and releasing numerous 'definitive' versions), Scott seems proud to show off the evolution of Blade Runner, from workprint to final version, and to enhance his final cut with a few subtle changes.

Also Included is 'Dangerous Days', an epic 'making-of'documentary that tells of the grand efforts of getting Blade Runner from drawing board to real-life.

This definitive version has been a long time coming, but it is an OUTSTANDING purchase!

2.0 out of 5 stars A confusing and unhelpful guide., 1 Dec. 2007
I bought this little guide as my university dissertation was about 'The Life And Death Of Colonel Blimp'. As it is only a small text, I hoped it would give me one or two nuggets of information which the more substantial P&P books may have missed.

Unfortunately (and confusingly) this guide seems less about 'Blimp' and more about the childhood of A.L Kennedy, who goes on to state how Powell and Pressburger films brightened up her childhood. The opinions expressed in the booklet are minimal and not to a high standard academically.

On the plus side, the book is budget priced and easy to read, however i'm surprised an institution like the BFI were proud to put their name to this effort, especially as some of their other BFI Classics guides are so good.
