  1.  Brilliant!


    As the other reviewer stated, this documentary is funny, emotional, incredibly informative and, as far as I'm aware, accurate in telling the story of the bands history. Starting from the Mother Love Bone days, we are taken on a journey through Pearl Jam's life and treated to some great concert footage along the way (Release in Verona is a particular highlight). Ed, Mike, Stone, Jeff, Matt , Chris Cornell and director Cameron Crowe all offer us their insight and point of view on what has been a career full of highs and lows and if you're a fan, as I am, there isn't a whole lot more you could ask for.

    When I first saw the film in cinemas, I thought it was the greatest documentary I'd ever seen. But after a few more watches you start to pick up on some areas where it could've been improved. Personally, I think it would've been great to hear from some of the drummers of days gone by. Crowe sends us a bit of a mixed message about the importance of drummers in Pearl Jam by quickly skimming through the history of the drummers in the appropriately titled 'Drummer Story' narrated by Mike McCready. This is followed by Ed stating that the drummers are like the heart of the band, and it's like a heart transplant every time one is replaced. A minor criticism, but something I think should've been improved upon. Why not hear from Dave Abbruzese on the reasons why he was fired?

    But perhaps I'm missing the point; on the DVD it clearly states that this film is dedicated to the fans and it gives the fans exactly what they want. If you love Pearl Jam as much as I do, you'll want to buy this film.

  2. Slash


    Slash - CD

    16 New from  £6.29  Free delivery

    Available  used  from  £15.97

     A Solid Rock Album


    After listening to this album I was not disappointed at all by Slashs latest effort. Every song seems fairly easy to get in to and I was pleasantly surprised by Fergies fantastic vocals on Beautiful Dangerous and listening to Slash and Izzy coming together once again is always a treat to the ears.
    The only thing that Im annoyed with is that we have to wait another month to get the same album only without the Classic Rock magazine which costs nearly twice as much. A very good album all round though. Favourites would have to be Back from Cali and Ghost. A must but or at least hear for any Slash fan.

  3.  One of My Favourite Albums


    This is a superb album, every song is fantastic! From the heavy, catchy riffs of Slave To The Grind to the chilled out ballads like In a Darkened Room. This album has everything and packs one hell of a punch! Great guitar work and absolutely amazing vocals from Sebastian Bach, this is Skid Row in their prime.

  4.  What a Film!


    I have only seen this film once, and that was in the Cinema back in January but I still remember how powerful it was. Amazing performances from Rourke and the rest of the cast and for all you 80's metal heads it has a great sound track from the likes of Ratt and other great bands form the 80's. One of the best films I have ever seen. Sad, happy and touching all at the same time.

  5.  Good Film


    Very enjoyable film. I thought I would just say that this is a remake of a film of the same name from quite a few years ago, and Mean Machine was in fact influenced from that. But yes, a good film, quite funny and a lot of famous faces in it (especially if you're a wrestling fan).

  6.  Pretty Good


    I do enjoy this film and I don't believe that it is as bad as many make it out to be. Sure it's not as good as the first two Terminator films but they were masterpieces!

    It is a very entertaining film and I do suggest that you watch it. The only part that lets it down in my opinion is when Arnie wears those ridiculous star shaped sun glasses, I lost some respect for the Terminator series at that point in the film. But all in all it is rather entertaining and is well worth watching.

  7. Humbug


    Arctic Monkeys - CD

    17 New from  £12.67  Free delivery

    Available  used  from  £4.48



    My brother somehow managed to get this album and I thought I would check it out as I heard they were going to be different on this album so I wanted to hear the 'new' Arctic Monkeys.

    I have to say, I don't really like the Arctic Monkeys but I was quite impressed with this album and I have been listening to for the past week or so. My favourite song is 'Fire And The Thud' but they all seem to be worth listening to! Good stuff!

  8.  Below Average


    I am a huge family guy fan and have all of the seasons on dvd but this just doesn't do it for me. Episodes aren't as funny anymore, they are lacking good plots and it just doesn't seem to strike a chord! I think for the next series the writers should take a longer time to write it and make sure that they actually come up with some good ideas.
    Having said all that, there are still a few episodes that make me laugh but compared to past seasons, this is quite poor.

  9.  Never been more entertained at a cinema


    I have read a lot of negative reviews of this film, but wow, I can't remember the last time I was so hooked at a cinema. Action from start to finish and I love how it refers back to things in old the old Terminator films (You Could Be Mine from T2 for example).

    This is a very different film from the other 3 Terminators so don't buy it expecting it to be the same. You shouldn't be dissapointed.

  10.  The last good season


    This season is one of the best, along with 4 and 3 this is my favourite. The problem is after this, it seems as though Seth Mcfarlane and the other writers are starting to lose ideas. Now on Family Guy, there are a lot of episodes that aren't very funny, and they put in random things (such as a full Conway Twitty song) for too long, to drag out the episode. So buy this for those times when the Guy was great!!!
