A Long Ploty Fantasy Novel.

Posted : 10 years, 4 months ago on 8 March 2008 11:23 (A review of The Sword and the Lion (Daw science fiction))

The Sword and the Lion was one of the pivotal books of my childhood. It was one of the first books I read that had a true heroine. She was strong but not perfect. She could fight but she wasn't always the best at everything. The writing was also very realistic- bad things happened and they often happened to good people. Even the romance subplot was more realistic than those I'd read before. It wasn't love at first sight and they didn't jump in bed together right after they got together. I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a long ploty fantasy novel.

Funniest Book of the Series.

Posted : 10 years, 4 months ago on 8 March 2008 10:13 (A review of Starfighters of Adumar (Star Wars: X-Wing #9))

Starfighters of Adumar is one of the funniest books I've read that wasn't actually a humour novel. The X-Wing series has always been my favourite of the Star Wars franchise because it embodies a lot of the things I loved about the movies - action, adventure, flying, and funny one-liners! I think the book's so funny because the three main characters, the leaders of Wraith and Rogue squadrons I believe and Wedge Antilles, have a bond that goes all the way back to the original Rogue Squadron. A great story to end the series on though I can't help wish for more.

The First Discworld Book I Ever Read.

Posted : 10 years, 4 months ago on 5 March 2008 08:14 (A review of Wyrd Sisters (Discworld))

Wyrd Sisters was the first Terry Pratchett book I ever read. I discovered the Discworld novels when I was in high school and after reading a bunch of Shakespeare's writings in various lang. arts classes reading Wyrd Sisters was a novel (pun not intended) experience. There were a ton of jokes that I wouldn't have gotten if I'd read this book even a few years earlier. I loved the way Pratchett wove the story with a nod and a laugh to the Shakespeare plays. Wyrd Sisters remains one of my favourites of Pratchett's works.

How So Timeless?

Posted : 10 years, 5 months ago on 28 January 2008 06:26 (A review of Hanson - Middle of Nowhere Acoustic)

Hanson are amazing musicians. I watch this dvd and none of these songs sound 10 years old. Collectively they have a fantastic stage presence and I was really impressed with the way they talk to and treat their fans. I really enjoyed the filming - there's a good mix of shots and they didn't over do the crowd shots. Altogether it was a great concert atmosphere.

One of my top music dvds for sure!

Wonderfully Cheesy

Posted : 10 years, 5 months ago on 28 January 2008 06:12 (A review of Kung Fu: The Legend Continues (1993-1997))

Kung Fu: The Legend Continues was the first cop show I ever watched for myself. I used to come home from school and plop myself in front of the tv just in time to watch the re-runs. The show had a lot of cheese to it but was still a pretty good cop show. I was sad to see it go off the air and I'm anxiously waiting for it to be released to dvd.

Big Guy, Big Heart

Posted : 10 years, 5 months ago on 28 January 2008 06:03 (A review of Holmes on Homes)

My love for this show is huge. The help Mike gives people is amazing. I've learned a lot about construction from watching this show. Mike's make it right philosophy makes me happy. I think this is my favourite show on tv right now.

A + Concert DVD

Posted : 10 years, 6 months ago on 15 January 2008 12:01 (A review of The All-American Rejects - Tournado)

This is a really good concert dvd. The filming is quality, the sound is well mixed, and the music is a nice balance of the two current albums. The behind the scenes footage is both funny and insightful and isn't too short.

Basically all the things that make a good concert dvd this one has in spades.

Favourite Movie of '07

Posted : 10 years, 6 months ago on 29 December 2007 10:37 (A review of The Bourne Ultimatum)

This is an awesome movie, the cinematography is fantastic. The dvd has a ton of really cool features on it, my favourite being 'driving school'. Definitely the best movie I saw this year.

Amazingly Awesome!

Posted : 10 years, 8 months ago on 26 October 2007 07:17 (A review of ¡Viva la Cobra!)

I LOVE this album!! So far The City is at War is my favourite but I love pretty much every song on this album. Especially Smile For The Paparazzi, My Moves are White, Prostitution is the
World's oldest Profession, One Day, Robots Will Cry and of course the single Guilty Pleasure. There sure as hell isn't a song I actually dislike on here!

Viva La Cobra is an amazingly awesome dance rock punk pop album.

Fangs Up, y'all!

Quite a Show

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 17 August 2007 05:26 (A review of Bullet In A Bible [CD + DVD])

Billy Joe is an awesome showman as are the rest of the band really. I thought the concert was excellent but the camera work got pretty annoying.
