5.0 out of 5 stars Hack the heads off little girls and put em on my wall., April 20 2004
This review is from: Walk Among Us (Audio CD)
As a die-hard Ramones maniac, I never thought that Id find another punk band that Id like as much as my beloved brothers but I can honestly say that I like the Misfits almost as much.
Quite frankly I much prefer music like this which is fun to listen to and is about fun stuff like Horror films and Vampires instead of crappy things like Emotions and Feelings.
Also the music itself is probably the most catchy that I've ever heard, in fact the only band that use melody and fun lyrics as good as the Misfits do is the Ramones. This album is a true work of genius and is without doubt one of the Best Albums ever made.
Trust me the Misfits will make you happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 star film, crap dvd., April 20 2004
The recent release of Kill Bill on dvd is obviously a stop-gap release, and the extras on offer here show this.
But i wont comment to much on this matter too much because Kill Bill is the coolest film ever made. Ever.
People who dont like Kill Bill to me are dead inside, this is quite simply amazing. The visuals on offer in this film are some of the most mesmerising I've ever seen. And as far as Im concerned this is Quentin Tarantino's best film.
Many people, I like to call them idiots, said that this film was a backward step for Tarantino. These people wanted another Pulp Fiction basically despite the fact that if Tarantino was to do another film exactly like Pulp Fiction it would be the biggest backward step he could ever take. And so he ventured forth and took on the massive chore of creating a martial arts cinema masterpiece, and succeeded.
True this is the first part of a two part film but anything this amazing deserves to stand on its own and thus I think that it should be judged as a seperate film and given its rightful place among the all time greatest films ever made.
So in short if you like Kill Bill I like you and want to be your freind, and if you dont like it I hate you and wish you would open your mind. Because if you open your mind I might like you eventually.

5.0 out of 5 stars The kings of the NWOAHM, March 29 2004
This review is from: Alive or Just Breathing (Audio CD)
Alive or Just Breathing is as far as im concerned one of the best albums that anyone will ever hear. The music, the vocals, the lyrics, just incredible.
If you are a fan of modern metal then own this as a favour to yourself.

3.0 out of 5 stars this film is the 80's on disc, March 26 2004
The breakfast club is without doubt the biggest mixed bag of a film that i have ever seen. Its good in the way that its the most 80's film that you'll ever see, and its bad in the way that it's the most 80's film that you'll ever see. In other words its good in places but cheesy as tangy cheesy cheese in others.
The story itself to me is pretty ludicrous, five kids get detention and then over the course of the film become close freinds after they express their deepest emotions to each other. Now maybe im just too much of a cynic but i can honestly say that in all the times that i was in detention i didnt want to talk to anyone.
The acting is also really bad yet good in its own 80's way. The performances from Judd Nelson and the Teacher guy are so over the top that these guys cant even see planet earth anymore,and thats not me being sarcastic thats me being truthful, I apologise to all the people who hold John Bender close to their soul, its just my opinion, I am a rudos luchadore after all.
The only real grudge that i have with this film is the soundtrack, I apologise again but that Simple Minds song makes me want to chainsaw my own face off.
But I can see past that and appreciate what is a quite enjoyable film, just dont expect an experience that films like Kill Bill, LotR, Night of the living dead, and True Romance will give you just expect a good way to waste a few hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rob Zombie plus corpses equals fun., March 22 2004
Some people say that this film is bad. Those people are idiots, this film is great. It is fun and it has lots of blood. if you want to cheer up then go and get this film, and in the words of Captain Spaulding "Well S#!T the bed".

5.0 out of 5 stars I always liked you Clarence, always have, always will., March 18 2004
When people say that stories like Romeo and Juliet, Gone With the Wind and Sleepless in Seattle are the greatest love stories ever told then those people obviously havent seen TRUE ROMANCE yet. While I dont own the unrated DVD, I have seen this film and can obviously say that TRUE ROMANCE is one of the best and most underrated films ever made.
The story involves two people who come together and fall in love instantly, the two in question are Clarence, a comic book store clerk, and Alabama, a first time prostitute. Unfortuneatly for them they get involved in a series of nasty and complicated circumstances involving everyone from the Mafia to movie producers. To say that this film is multi layered is an understatement.
But at the heart of this film is just a simple heart warming love story between two social outcasts and their quest for happiness.
This film was always going to be good, but thanks to everyone involved in the making of this film it is awesome. Tony Scott does a fantastic job of bringing Quentin Tarantino's brilliant script to life. And the performances from the large ensemble cast is inspiring. While the film belongs to Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette special mention should also go to everyone involved for giving their all.
Put simply this film is essential if you like be immersed in your films you will like this. Buy it and cherish it.

5.0 out of 5 stars young man visited by rabbit, stops world ending., March 16 2004
This review is from: Donnie Darko (Widescreen) (DVD)
This is without doubt one of the most original films ever made.If you plan to actually live rather than just exist you should watch this film. This is film that you must come at with a very open mind, if you dont you will hate it.
This is a film for people who like to step outside the circle, for people who arent satisfied by just another blockbuster, not that i hate those i thought that Pirates of the Carribean was one of the best films of last year I even rank it alonside my favourite of last year Kill Bill, and thats saying a lot as I preach to anyone that listens. Just ask my fellow horseman and Amazon reviewer The Birdman.
But seriously see this film or else your world will end on an empty and sad note.

4.0 out of 5 stars great for all the wrong reasons., March 10 2004
This review is from: Cradle of Fear (DVD)
This film is a piece of trash, and thats why I loved it. As a fan of Cradle of Filth I enjoyed it immensly as i got to see Dani trying to act. And i do mean trying as the acting in this film is beyond S#!t, but thats what makes it great. The special effects are nice and dodgy, lots and lots of blood everywhere.
Its actually a shame that the acting is a bit dodgy as one of the story's is brilliant.
the story in question is the story about the sick room and this is pretty much essential even if you dont like horror. It is writen brilliantly and Chandon deserves all the praise in the world for writing a story like this.
The soundtrack on this film is great too as Black metal and electronica are mixed together to produce a nice piece of ecclectica.
the bottom line is if you are a fan of any of the following: Cradle of Filth, Horror, old video nasties, trash culture or just fun then get this film. You dont need to own it but try and see it at least.

5.0 out of 5 stars This film is so accurate its still relevant., March 2 2004
I have given myself an impossible task in trying to write a review of this film because it is impossible to try and explain how great it is within a review.
This is satire at its most biting. Peter Sellars is the man in this film, actually he's three men. And he carries off all the roles brilliantly. As the President of the USA, an RAF general and as the title caracter Dr. Strangelove this man shines like a sunrise.
George C Scott is also great as the ultra-jingoistic army adviser, the man looks like hes about to explode when he gets on one of his "commie" rants.
Slim Pickens and Sterling Hayden also provide brilliant support in their respective roles, but it would be unfair to divulge into what they do, becuase if you havent seen this film it would ruin it for you by reading it.
The real star of this though has to be the great Stanley Kubrick, quite simply the man was just short of a genius. His trademark visuals are all over this film, the man could make watching someone read a magazine compelling if he wanted to.
But the thing that stands out the most for me while watching this film has to be the fact that there are a lot of similarities to the events of today. Tweak the script ever so slightly and you've got an accurate satire of the modern Ameriacan govt and their war campaigns. And that is more frightening than any Doomsday Device.

5.0 out of 5 stars this film saved my birthday, March 1 2004
This review is from: High Fidelity (DVD)
Two years ago i had the most depressing birthday ever. The day itself isnt important but lets just say that i turned 17 and was alone and miserable. But instead of doing the stereotypical suicide thing i decided to go buy a dvd instead. The film i bought was High Fidelity, and after watching it i didnt feel so bad anymore, hence it saved my birthday.
this film is the ultimate in feel good cinema, with a hilarious turns by jack black and john cusack. the soundtrack is great and the script is excellent. quite simply this film is essential.
so if you are sitting there by your computer at 3 in the morning in your pants eating cereal surrounded by wadded tissues at the moment, while thinking of ending it all, dont. wait till the next day and then rent this gem of a film. i promise you'll be smiling at the end.
