Dungeons & Dragons: Monster Manual 3.5
Dungeons & Dragons: Monster Manual 3.5
by Monte Cook
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars D&D BOOK, 20 Jun. 2011
These 3.5s are better than 4.0, however D&D has changed and itsnt the same as it used to be, Fantasy Craft is now actually closer to how the game used to be played, it may be an idea to have a look at those too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Greetings Card Ever, 20 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Birthday Card - Loves Cock
This is probably the best greetings card I've ever seen.

I don't know about you but I hate all the saccharine pumped drivel you get from all the other card shops, these seem more realistic and funny because they are designed to offend.
Only those with a broad sense of humour will benefit from them.
This one I bought for my younger brother's 27th and he is going to love it, coz as it says, he loves it.

There are plenty others in the range but this is the best one.
I've got cards like these for people in work and the mirth they cause has been riotous.

So get one for a friend, and alienate them!


We Can Remember It For You Wholesale (Collected Short Stories of Philip K. Dick)
We Can Remember It For You Wholesale (Collected Short Stories of Philip K. Dick)
by Philip K. Dick
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Storytelling: PKD, 16 May 2011
This is a cllection of science fiction's greatest masterpieces.
Even if you are a fan of sci fi but not Phillip K Dick, it is worth at least one read.
You can see how his structuring of stories made him a success.

I am going to admit I only bought this volume to read the short story that the film Total Recall was based on.
But once I had read that, I had to read the others.

This is literature to rival Hodgson, Lovecraft, Tolkien, Lewis, Bradbury, Aasimov, Carrol and Clark.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 Blu Ray, Triple Play, 22 Mar. 2011
People are going to say that you can't possibly review a release that hasn't been released yet.
Well grow up, yes I can, yes I will and yes I'm gonna.

I have seen the movie, I have seen what Warner Brothers do with Blu Rays, I have the other Potter Films in the format and have been pleased and can only be even more thrilled when this finally comes.

Harry Potter 7 Part 1. Was a brilliant film, more realistic and adult than any other. It was One trillion times more exciting than the Half-Blood Prince even though that was a good adaptation of a very hard-to-adapt-novel.

Without the usual element of being confined to one location (Hogwarts) for the whole film, this one takes us on an exciting road-trip around magic Britain and to some places we never really want to go.

David Yates knows whats what, Steve Cloves knows how to write, Emma Watson can certainly act & entertain, Daniel Radcliffe is at the top of his game, certainly come a long way since HP1 and Rupert Grint is still there, running around in the background, with a look of surprise on his face.

Come on Part 2...fingers crossed Emma gets to wear a skirt again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rubik's 4 x 4 revenge Cube, 22 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Rubik's 4 x 4 Revenge Cube (Toy)
You thought the regular 3 x 3 was tough?
You breezed through the oddly challenging 2 x 2?
Wait until you see this bad boy drop through your letterbox. (If you've got a massive letterbox like me.)

This is probably the most confounding Cube Ive had to force myself to solve to date and I've not even tried the others that are out there.

This will leave you stamping your foot and pulling out somebody else's hair, its that challenging.

Roll on the Pentamix!

5.0 out of 5 stars Halloween II (2009), 22 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Halloween II [DVD] (DVD)
The 2007 remake of Halloween, stayed very true to the original but changed certain aspects of the characters, adding some more back story and filling out the motives and reasons behind who and what Michael Myers is.

This sequel is not a reimagining of the original Halloween II with Jamie Lee Curtis, although it does have a brief what-if scenario at the start.

With some surprises cameos and some good direction by Rob Zombie. The talents of the young Laurie (Scout Taylor-Compton)must be applauded for getting in the nitty gritty of slasher films.

This movie takes the classic tale down a road never explored and ends with a truly shocking if not ever-so-slightly predictable way, leaving a door open for a third installment which is actually due this year (2011)

This is not a gorefest, or shocker movie but there are moments and is definitely not for children.
Also a good price, thanks Amazon.

The Casebook of Carnacki The Ghost-Finder (Tales of Mystery & The Supernatural)
The Casebook of Carnacki The Ghost-Finder (Tales of Mystery & The Supernatural)

5.0 out of 5 stars Carnacki, the Ghost Finder, 22 Mar. 2011
Very truly original tales of the supernatural.
As a fan of William Hope Hodgson, I find his other stories rather telling about the time in which he lived and wrote but also about the type of intellect he possessed.
All his other stories seem to suggest that the man was very ahead of his time, his knowledge of the sciences epsecially were in keeping with many modern concepts.
He did for the Supernatural, cosmological horrors what Conan-Doyle did for the murder mysteries.

This book contains 9 unrelated stories of horror, mystery and intrigue which are investigated by Thomas Carnacki, the Edwardian psychic detective.

Doctor Who Classics, Volume 6

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who Classics v6, 22 Mar. 2011
Volume 6, introduced thecompanion Avan Tarklu, the Whifferdill shapeshifter later to become loved and known as Frobisher, the sentient penguin.
Also these comics see the introduction of Peri!

Also contained herein is probably the most outstanding Doctor Who comic of all time. 'Voyager'

It borders on the supernatural, the insane and the truly fantastic. The Doctor is thrown out of countenance with everything he knows, at times this story is comparable with the cosmological horrors dreamt up by HP Lovecraft and William Hope Hodgson.

Volume 6 features a story including all previous 5 Doctors, an unexpected cameo from Davros, the classic series Draconians and Peri, yet again wearing those bright blue, very tight, shorts and t shirt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frenchman's Creek, 22 Mar. 2011
Classic, classic movie.
The beautiful Joan Fontaine, (Rebecca) the sister of actress Olivia de Havilland.
Also starring the only non Sherlock Holmes themed pairing of Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce.

Right, the story...
This is the 1944 adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier's classic tale of an aristocratic English woman who falls in love with a French Pirate. The film itself recieves a fantastic adapation by Talbot Jennings of the Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) screenplay.

In colour and in English this movie has not been released on DVD anywhere in the world except in Spain for reasons unknown.
This SPanish version is however completely unchanged. There is a choice between English and Spanish dubbing or English and Spanish subtitled. Apart from that there is no difference, save that the front and back covers are written in Spanish, this does not detract from the mvie itself.

One of Daphne Du Maurier's best.
