  1.  Best since XTRMNTR

    Posted: 

    Its 13 years since XTRMNTR and we've had no right to expect Primal Scream to reach anywhere near that standard again. But they have. This is superb. Evil Heat and Beautiful Future seemed rushed whereas Riot City Blues was not to everyones tastes. But the 5 years since Beautiful Future, the upheavel of Mani returning to The Roses, and the anniversary of Screamadelica seems to have re-invigorated the band. This is at once familiar but also new and exciting and hugely recommended to anyone who thought they'd go against their better judgement and pass on this album. Even the bonus disc is excellant!

  2.  Truly magnificent

    This really is an astonishing piece of work. Sweeping vistas, interesting characters and tremendously staged set pieces with masterfull use of sound and colour. Deserving to be called Epic when so many other movies are lazily tagged as being such.
    Lets hope the Blu-Ray does it justice!

  3.  Flawed Sci Fi cracker

    This is a great movie. Exciting, exhilirating and enthralling.
    I have to agree though that the end is a letdown. If the film ended 10m minutes earlier it would be a much richer experience although on a bit of a downer. I wonder if it was ever considered?

  4.  Cracking alternative to Kings of Leon

    This album feels like it could have been made in the seventies. A sufficient quota of Prog Rock so as not to be OTT. A touch of Zeppelin and perhaps even The Allman Brothers Band. I will certainly be catching them at T in the Park this year!

  5.  Desert Island Album

    Posted: 

    One of the highest peaks in Iron Maiden's career. Its one of those albums that has stayed with me throughout the years and I never, ever tire from it. I cannot think of many records that I can say that about. The quality of performance is quite astonishing. With each version of every song proving to be the pinnacle recording of the track. If I was asked what would be my desert island album this would be the choice without hesitation

  6.  Modern classic

    Posted: 

    This is what exciting thrillers are all about. Intelligent, suspenseful writing, with twists revealed deftly and with great timing. Without doubt a modern classic and Coben's finest work to date.

  7.  Incomprehensible!

    Posted: 

    I find it baffling that so many people have given this movie a five star review. It just felt wrong from the very start of the movie. The opening credits sequence was just a waste of time - Oh, it's the fifties! After that it just goes downhill. Ray Winstone's character is so underwritten we have to assume the banter with Indy has foundation. He just calls him Jonesy all the time and it is infuriating! Blanchett tries hard but has no chance. John Hurt might aswell be reprising his role as John Merrick! Ford is ok but a shadow of Indy. We know he is old but come on! CGI, plot, etc are all wrong. I may watch again in hope that it is not as bad as I remember but its unlikely. Shambles of a movie.
