  1.  Atmosphere in abundance, stunning soundtrack.

    Posted: 

    In terms of atmosphere, this is it. From the opening credits, you get drawn in, and can feel the film. Don't expect fireworks, this is more of a slow burner, but what a film. Jonny Greenword's stirring soundtrack with the help of more violins than you can shake a stick at pitch just the right level. As for Daniel Day Lewis, superlatives abound for this actor, to be honest I am not sure I would invite him around through fear after watching this film.
    Lets face it, a film based in 1890 To 1930, about oil does not set the pulse racing, but there was something that made me want to watch this film. If you are interested in the deconstruction of the human pysche, or of a religious man (Ely) falling into hypocrisy, then give it a go. Not for everyone, but in my top 5 films right behind my favourite "Training Day".

  2.  Atmosphere & Acting At Its Best

    Posted: 

    Quite simply my favourite film. Watch as Denzel changes from arrogant & egotistical throughout the film. Ethan Hawke gives a good performance, but alongside Denzel, he never has the chance to shine. There is action, there is culture, but sometimes, there is more required, if you want "Feel" with a capital F, then this is for you.

  3.  Toshiba Camileo Pro HD Camcorder. Too many compromises.

    Like the other reviewer above, I purchased this camcorder based on the number of positive reviews out there. To be honest though I was really disappointed.
    The reason for upgrade, was to replace a 5 year old JVC GR-DX27EK mini DV camcorder with a sticky zoom (originally £200), but the camileo Pro HD was no replacement, it is basically a toy with good connection possiblities, or ideal for Youtube and the like, I wanted to use the camera for quick connections, and to take indoor video of my baby-to-be which is due soon, in the hour that I tested it, I took five videos, the colour was saturated, there were extreme focusing problems, the 3 x optical zoom was woefully inadequate. I did take some quick video of outdoors, and that worked ok but the quality was not excellent.
    The build quality was ok and understandable for the price, but ultimately this left me so disappointed that I decided to return it.
    If you want to take fun videos, then this may fit the bill, but for ok videos, and the occasional good indoor video, don't bother with this camera.

  4.  Good fun!

    I purchased this item cheap, with a few thoughts to the old arcade game. To be honest I was not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised! There is enough to keep you interested, and the game is neither pitched to difficult nor too easy. in the Outrun 2 mode, there is a choice of 10 different Ferrari's to add to the nostalgia, with ghost car mode, racing and a girlfriend challenge mode there is enough to keep you interested. It is a true PSP game where if you have a spare 5 / 10 minutes, you can still enjoy it without having to leave the psp on stand-by. Highly recommended! If you can get it cheap, you'd be mad not to get it.
