2.0 out of 5 stars This starts out as a fairly amusing vehicle to demonstrate ..., 23 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trainwreck (Amazon Video)
This starts out as a fairly amusing vehicle to demonstrate Amy Schumer's undeniable comic talent. However when it reaches an hour into its 2hr 5mins running time it becomes another over-wrought morality tale using the tired Apatow-template for story structure, complete with un-even tone shifts and lots of the supposedly hilarious improvised riffing between its stars.

The supporting cast is a mixed bag of the genuinely surprising (John Cena steals all of his scenes) and woefully unfunny (I have no idea how Tilda Swinton decided not only to take the role but to adopt that accent). There's too much hugging and learning and not enough jokes.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's beautifully made and very baby-friendly, 2 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite some delays in the delivery (I blame Xmas/Amazon, not the seller), this is a lovely product. It's beautifully made and very baby-friendly. It's very pretty and could actually pass as regular jewellery. The people at Fox and Finn have been in touch since the order and they were extremely helpful whilst I stressed about getting the item in time.
Overall, extremely happy with my purchase and I highly recommend the company too.

4.0 out of 5 stars A flawed but gripping and sinister collection.., 22 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was a huge fan of King's books growing up, but somewhere around 'Dreamcatcher' and 'Rose Madder' I gave up. This was recommended by several people and critics and was heralded as a return to form, with some saying King was having a renaissance in his later years. I'd say that's true.
These four novellas revolve around death, murder, guilt, revenge and redemption and only the third story (the weakest in my opinion) hints at anything supernatural. The strength of the other stories comes from the characters and the way their minds wrestle with their actions or events that unfold. He's always been very good at winning the reader over with a warm and inviting voice (think of 'Red' from 'Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption') that can charm you whilst simultaneously pulling you further and further into a dark and twisted world. It has to be said, at times this book is incredibly grisly and graphic, with vivd images of decaying corpses and monstrous crimes dancing around your head long after you've stopped reading. I think King may've been inspired by some of Cormac McCarthy's work when writing the first tale, "1922". It's by no means in the same league but there's an undeniable feel of darkness that's reminiscent of 'Child of God'.
As I mentioned, the third of the four is the weakest and it jarred against the sustained tension and pace of the others. It's a shame as overall it's some of the best work he's ever done. If you like horror but have grown weary of werewolves and vampires, then this will keep you entertained and reinstill some faith in one of the best mainstream writers of our time.
