According to Rotten Tomatoes, this film is rotten to the core (pun intended)
True, it isn't going to win any awards but as a bit of fun and escapism it ticks all the boxes, its one of the few films in the last 2 months that actually filled the cinema.
Verdict: 3.5 Stars Go see it, it delivers exactly what you would expect. Fun from beginning to end.
This is a new one for the reviews section, Music!
When you think Mike Oldfield, you think Tubular Bells and The Exorcist. Music of the Spheres is completely different yet very much the same, based on the premise that everything in the universe has a unique sound or vibration. Oldfield has orchestrated a journey by music through the universe.
Its a very good album from big impact tracks, to very subtle and calming tracks. Its the sort of album you put on at the end of the day and just kick back and relax to. While it could be argued its just a re-hash of oldfield's old catalogue circa Tubular Bells 1. I still enjoyed it.
Verdict - 4 Stars

Teen rebellion films come and go, most are rubbish. Charlie Bartlett, is what a good film should be, every character is believable Anton Yelchin (Bartlett) and Robert Downey Jr. (Principal Gardner) stand out as the best characters of the bunch.
If anything its a little too believable to just enjoy as a piece of cinema.
Go See - A solid film with some great characters.
Well this is going to be a simple review, go see it you will love it whether you think you will or not. I said last year to a group of my friends that 2008 was going to be a good year for British, and In Bruges doesn't disappoint. It's the traditional Dark humor that we brits love and done with an excellent panache, and even the not so politically correct topics are up for grabs.
Verdict (4.5 Stars)
Go see it you wont be disappointed.
It does what it says on the tin, a testerone packed 1hr and abit. Where it fails is it tries to justify the events in the film with a limp and melow dramatic reference to Achilles shield. If your willing to overlook that, which you probably are if you are even remotely intrested in the film. Go see it you wont end up being bored at all.
Go See, its not the best film you'll ever see but it is enjoyable non the less.
Overall I really enjoyed 21, I can't comment on the book as I haven't started it but I have bought it. I thought all the characters where believable, and it was an entertaining film, and has found its way on to my favorite films list.
Ok, so it does get abit mellow dramatic towards the end, but i think there are a good few films that suffer more for it, 21 is simple and to the point and most importantly, it doesn't have the over top air of some of the 'based on a true story' genre of recent months.
3.5 Stars - Go See, You wont regret it.
