  1.  Underappreciated gem!

    Posted: 

    When I first saw this years ago I had never heard of Jerry Lee Lewis, his music or his outrageous marriage to his 13 year old cousin Myra. This film is set in 1957 when Lewis's star rose and then came crashing down. The performances are great by Dennis Quaid and Winona Ryder and music is really good - I've been listening to the soundtrack for years! Well worth getting.

  2.  The Best

    Posted: 

    This is by far the best makeup book around. It shows with illustrations how to achieve many different looks. Also contains many useful tips and covers all the basics. An excellent book!

  3.  Typical Stephen King

    Posted: 

    This film is quite predictable but enjoyable nonetheless. There are a few good fright moments in it. You can watch it in B&W or colour, which is interesting (although I only watched it in colour). The Special Features are long but give you a great behind the scenes look. Horror and Stephen King fans will probably appreciate this DVD the most!!!

  4.  Gripping

    Posted: 

    If you are a fan of the horror genre or psychological dramas you'll like this. Joan Crawford and Bette Davis are immensely watchable as they chew up the scenery. It's nearly 50 years old but holds up well. The Special Features are interesting too. Jodie Foster presents the Bette Davis one and there's a lot of interesting interview clips. Well worth getting. I didn't feel the 2 hours pass at all!

  5.  Worth a listen

    Posted: 

    Although You Rock My World is the only hit from this album the rest is very high quality music. I find myself listening to it a lot. All the songs have different styles and there are some really good tracks - Butterflies, Heaven Can Wait, 2000 Watts. I think it could have been a bigger hit if it had more promotoion at the time of release, but it's no 'Bad' or 'Thriller'. However it's a million times better than most of it's contemporaries!

     Very Good

    Posted: 

    Although 'Noone' is the only real hit on this album, there is plenty more worth listening to. It's a very relaxing and smooth sound if you just want to chill out. Alicia Keys is very talented but she should try to write more hit songs like 'Noone'!!!!!!!!!!!

  7.  Run of the mill Dickens

    Posted: 

    I really enjoyed the excellent BBC series of Bleak House so was hoping this would be as good. Unfortunately while the standard of filming and production etc is excellent, the story just isn't as good. I found the central character rather insipid and annoying after a while. I'd recommend this only if you are a real Dickens fan.

  8.  One of the Greats

    Posted: 

    The King of Pop, Michael Jackson proved himself very early on in the game with this album. It's not dated at all - so many artists today still trying to emulate it. Still sounds so fresh, energetic and wonderful. I love 'Off the Wall'!! RIP MJ.

  9.  The Godfather of Soul does not disappoint!

    Posted: 

    This album includes the basic hits of James Brown - A Man's World, I feel good, papa's got a brand new bag - all of the big hits are here. The production sound is very good too, all the songs are very clear and sound like they could have been recorded yesterday!

  10.  Great album

    Posted: 

    This is a great compilation soundtrack album, even for non-fans of New Moon. There are a couple of original songs here too I think. Hearing Damage by Thom Yorke is really good, as is Monsters, Slow Life, The Violet Hour are my favourites. Just a really great album.
