  1.  Ahh, to be taken back to Springfield again...

    Posted: 

    This is a great album. A must have item if you're a Simpsons Fan. It features tons of Music and Quotes from the incomparable classic seasons of The Simpsons.

    It features original score by Alf Clausen, classic quotes and Songs such as "The Monorail Song" and "Who needs the Kwik-E-Mart?"

    Fantastic.

  2.  A Suprisingly Good Score by Mr. Zimmer.

    Posted: 

    When I first heard that Hans Zimmer was to be composing the score for the eagerly-anticipated Simpsons Movie, I thought that he would create a dissapointing soundtrack, as I was hoping for Danny Elfman (writer of The Simpsons' theme).

    I was, however, pleasantly suprised after seeing the Movie and listening to this soundtrack in full when I arrived Home.
    Mr. Zimmer has created a really epic and fun score that is completely different to anything that Alf Clausen (Simpsons' Composer) has ever produced but, at the same time, stays very "Simpsony". It's what The Simpsons Movie score should sound like. Well Done, Sir.

  3.  The Definition of a Modern Classic

    Posted: 

    From Director Frank Darabont, who later went on to adapt other King works 'The Green Mile' and 'The Mist', comes 'The Shawshank Redemption'; a heartfelt story of an innocent man jailed in a notorious state prison after being convicted of the murder of his wife and her lover.

    An in-depth review at this point in time is un-necessary, as the majority of the population, it seems, has been touched by Darabont's wonderfully written, beautifully set and phenominally acted film.
    'Shawshank' a great example of modern film-making and if you are still among the few who haven't seen this poll-topping movie, then click away at the 'buy' button, my friend. This is the definition of a modern classic.

    You haven't lived 'till you've seen 'Shawshank'.

  4.  Hilarious and Original British Comedy

    Posted: 

    'Peep Show' is without a doubt, one of the funniest, most intelligent British Comedies in a long time.

    Written brilliantly by Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, 'Peep Show' follows the lives of two flatmates with very contradictiory personalities; Mark (Mitchell), a socially-inept Stalingrad enthusiast, and Jez (Webb), a sex-obbsessed wannabe musician.

    To differentiate it further from the current swarm of mediocre television comedy, the series uses unique point-of-view camera shots to take the viewer into the minds of the lead characters: a technique which only adds to the hilarious comedy that is presented throughout these first three series of what is set to become a TV classic.

  5.  Another Quality Soundtrack

    Posted: 

    What have we here, then? A new Simpsons Soundtrack Album? Count me in.

    This one contains familiar Music & Quotes from Seasons 10 to 18 of The Simpsons. We all know that these seasons are not on par with the icomparable Classic era of the Show, but there's no doubt that there is still quality material in and amongst.
    Highlights include Homer's "Ned Flanders song" and a bonus track featuring the one and only Kelsey Grammer as Sideshow Bob.

    The Reviewer before me doesn't seem to understand the concept of a Soundtrack Album and mustn't have collected the prevous Soundtracks. This CD is reccommended to any Fan or Collector. Fantastic Original Music.

  6.  Yellow Comedy Gold

    Posted: 

    The Simpsons Movie is, without a doubt, among the best films of 2007. The plot, while not totally venturous, is very entertaining and lives up to Blockbuster Movie standards.

    The film is not the best Simpsons ever produced over these past 20 years but The Simpsons Movie delivers the same humour and emotion we have all come to expect from one of the Greatest TV Shows in History.

    For modern Simpsons, this is as good as it gets.

    An essential addition to any DVD collection.

  7.  Brilliant

    Posted: 

    "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" is one of the best books that I have ever read.
    Mark Haddon's observations of a Boy with Aspergers Syndrome are very realistic and eye-opening. I was sad to see the back of it.
    I would highly recommend this to anyone. "Curious Incident.." reveals to us the brilliance of Mark Haddon's writing. It's a touching, eye-opening and often very funny book. A must have.

  8.  Sensational

    Posted: 

    Terry Gilliam, the mastermind behind Monty Python's wild animations and the critically acclaimed feature 'Brazil', brings us 'Twelve Monkeys', a thought-provoking post-apocalyptic thriller starring Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt in a Golden Glode-winning role.

    The year is 2035 and 99% of the Earth's human population has been eradicated by a deadly virus, forcing the few that remain to live far beneath the surface. In an attempt to find out more about the virus, scientists from the future send back criminal James Cole (Willis) to find clues and learn more about the mysterious Army of the Twelve Monkeys, a terrorist group thought to have released the infection.

    Gilliam's film is a great expression of just how brilliant a film-maker the former Python actually is. The stunning visuals, wonderful ideas and thought provoking twists make 'Monkeys' a unique motion picture which really does require the viewers imagination to make any sense at all.

    Willis and Pitt give the performances of their career and Madeleine Stowe is fantastic as Phycologist Kathryn Railly. It is said that Gilliam, to get the desired effect from his star, took away Pitt's cigarettes to aid him wth the quirky mannerisms and fast paced diologue of the character; which just goes to show how far the now renowned film-maker will go to deliver an awe-inspiring film to his audience.
