Bundling Wii Sports was a brilliant idea

Posted : 14 years, 5 months ago on 1 March 2008 02:40 (A review of Wii Sports)

Nintendo made the right move by bundling this with the Wii. It gets you up and running and really shows how much fun this console can be.

Art and Erotica plus more

Posted : 14 years, 5 months ago on 1 March 2008 02:37 (A review of Sports Illustrated: In the Paint)

The painted swimsuits always look great but that's not the only reason to buy this book. All the behind the scene stuff is very interesting, especially the artist's thoughts. I didn't realise till I read the book that it was just one artist, Joanne Gair, who did all the body painting.

Folk rock masterpiece

Posted : 14 years, 5 months ago on 29 February 2008 11:25 (A review of Back in the Circus)

Jonatha Brooke's masterpiece. All the songs are excellent, no filler. She mixes her own songs with some excellent selections to cover. The production is understated, which allows her voice to shine.

Cliched pile of cr*p

Posted : 14 years, 5 months ago on 29 February 2008 11:00 (A review of Summer Catch)

Freddie Prinze Jr should have stopped making movies many years ago, right before he made this one.

Character Study

Posted : 14 years, 5 months ago on 29 February 2008 06:33 (A review of 44 Scotland Street (44 Scotland Street Series, Book 1))

A character study of a group of people that live in a Edinburgh building. It barely has a discernible plot but was surprisingly engrossing. The author build his characters with such care that it's hard not to go along with him.

Orwell saw the future

Posted : 14 years, 5 months ago on 29 February 2008 06:26 (A review of 1984)

Orwell's brilliant description of a totalitarian dystopia. More relevant than ever, nearly 60 years after it was published.

Coupling = Sex

Posted : 14 years, 5 months ago on 29 February 2008 06:24 (A review of Coupling)

The British take the cake when it comes to comedy about sex. Coupling is about sex, sex and more sex, and occasionally about relationships too, but mostly sex, sex and more sex. Which other series has a whole episode about a porn film called 'Lesbian Spank Inferno'? Totally hilarious.

Eleven seasons of the funny stuff

Posted : 14 years, 5 months ago on 29 February 2008 06:20 (A review of Frasier)

Frasier didn't grow stale or un-funny or annoying and still lasted eleven seasons. The main characters are awesome and you can't help but love. The best comedy series on TV from the 90s.

Stunning sophomore effort

Posted : 14 years, 5 months ago on 29 February 2008 06:10 (A review of The Story)

A little more sombre than her stunning eponymous debut, 'The Story' is another excellent album by Brandi Carlile. Her wonderful voice is on centre stage here more than the first album. It allows her to display the full power and range of her voice. The album lacks the lighter moments from her first album. Most of the songs here are darker in tone and so is the music. However, this fails to bog the album down, and it's still a great listen from start to finish. It grows on you at every listen, as the depth of the songwriting reveals itself. Don't forget to listen to the hidden track 'Hiding My Heart' at the very end.

Brandi Carlile

Posted : 14 years, 5 months ago on 29 February 2008 06:08 (A review of NOT Correct album)

Brandi Carlile has pulled off the near impossible in this day and age, coming up with a Complete album of beautiful, heartfelt and original songs. There is no filler here, none at all. Her writing has amazing depth, and some of the upbeat melodies hide deceptively serious lyrics. This is one album to listen to over and over, and it grows on you every time. I cannot pick one or two highlights from the album, there really isn't Any weak material.
