The Girl Who Played With Fire:

Great review. I personally would've liked to hear more about he prose, but that's a matter of taste!

Men Who Hate Women:

Another good review. Once again a bit more meat would have satisfied me more. There was one typo that bothered me too: "Men who Hates Women."

Good stuff, though.

Definitely a good review, but it is heavy on spoilers, and as such I had to skip the bulk of it. But what I did read was good.

Pretty good review.

I'll probably end up seeing that movie soon. I have way too many females in my life that have a crush on Hugh Jackman.

Comment: If it seems somewhat subjective, it is because although I disagree with Aber that you can read on wikipedia to find out if a game is good or not, I do think that with CDs you can often find out if you like it by watching videos on youTube, at least when it comes to this one you can.

EDIT: Here are some links to YouTube if you want to check it out.

I kinda rushed through the review as I need to go to teh toilet (:P) but there were only a few errors along the lines of this:

"it is music you won't hair anywhere else".

Which is awesome! :P

As was the review! I enjoyed it a lot thanks to the much more subjective styIe as you still managed to get your view across very well! Good work.

"and bone claws start growing out of his hands. He launches towards the murder and stabs him"

Murderer.

"However it ends badly when they are sentence to death by a firing squad."

You wouldn't normally say a firing squad, but it's up to you.

"However when they start slaughtering an innocent African tribe, Wolverine gets enough and leave the rest of the team."

Wolverine has had enough and leaves.

"but Logan hear him give the order to delete his memory, and that is when the best breakes lose."

Hears him, when the beaast breaks loose?

"But even when it comes to the action, I have some minor mistakes"

It made some minor mistakes, I noticed some minor mistakes?

"I miss a long battle on life and death between the two of them."

The film missed a long battle? I would have liked to? Probably needs to reword it.

Anyway great review indeed! At times it did kinda just describe the plot but even then it was very engaging and entertaining so I can't really fault it for it. Great stuff!

I guess I should have edited that review before posting it.

"However it ends badly when they are sentence to death by a firing squad."

You wouldn't normally say a firing squad, but it's up to you.

Foolz3h

Actually, one of the characters in the movie used that term, so I assumed it worked :? Or is it the "a" that shouldn't be there?

"but Logan hear him give the order to delete his memory, and that is when the best breakes lose."

Hears him, when the beaast breaks loose?

Foolz3h

Lord, that is embarassing mistakes.

"But even when it comes to the action, I have some minor mistakes"

It made some minor mistakes, I noticed some minor mistakes?

Foolz3h

I believe what I meant was I have a few complains.

"I miss a long battle on life and death between the two of them."

The film missed a long battle? I would have liked to? Probably needs to reword it.

Foolz3h

Typical example of something that sounds good in Norwegian which I thought would work in English too.

Anyway great review indeed! At times it did kinda just describe the plot but even then it was very engaging and entertaining so I can't really fault it for it. Great stuff!

I agree it sounds more correct without the a. I've corrected it now, together with all the other stuff you pointed out.

Your latest review on Fairytales is very good. Well written and it explained the feel and actual sound of the music. Not the technicality of it like some music reviewers do.

"Which is unfortunate since he was last seen fallen of the edge of the disc."

Falling?

"Rincewind himself is not at all an adventure and is uncurious by nature."

Adventurer.

"thinks he sometimes gets them in serious trouble"

He thinks he gets them in troubel or he does?

Anyway good review. It did read a lot like a comparison between the two books, though.

but this one received brilliant critiqueWaZelda

"Brilliant critique" implies that you are supporting the reviews, and quite strongly too. :P

Well, the proper phrasing to get your point across is actually like "enthusiastic praises" or "overwhelmingly positive responses".

 

The film starts of well with action from the first minuteWaZelda

Off.

 

but from there on it goes downwards.WaZelda
 

This isn't really an issue, but the actual term is "downhill".

 

when turning an 800 pagesWaZelda
  

800-page.

 

The common mistake has been to cut out too much of the events. WaZelda
   

It would flow better as "the common mistake directors make is cutting out too many of the events".

 

which is partly because of the not that important scenesWaZelda
 

Try "relatively unimportant".

 

It is so much of it that it just becomes pretentious and a solid overkill.WaZelda

There.

 

 which is well high-lighted in this movie consideringWaZelda

I don't know if you're writing in American English, but British English (or should I say, English-English) has no hyphen (-) for that word.

 

because they at least has some humour to themWaZelda
 

 Have.

 

they just doesn't do it right.  WaZelda
 

 Don't.

 

Another well-played character is HorraceWaZelda
 

Doesn't Slughorn's first name only have one "r"?

 

One of the real highlights in the movie is whenKatie Belltouches the necklace WaZelda

Spessing wanted.

Great work on the review! :) I like that it didn't go into too much detail, yet still managed to paint a pretty good picture of what the film was like. And I'll be the third to say that I loved it when it came out---and I wasn't really much of a Pokemon fan.

he makes for a brilliant main character.

I would suggest telling why. Elaborate a bit more on this :)

Besides that little thing that bugged me, I didn't see any major flaws in the writing or the analysis of the movie. Well done! I have heard quite similar reactions: amazing visuals, decent charcters, cliche story, but overall badass!

I still haven't seen it yet; I'm waiting until my buddy from San Francisco gets here in a few days. But I am really excited!

IT's because he's Australian, and non-Australianss aren't used to the Australian acting styIe (which is to act badly) and think it's charming. :P

Anyway solid review. It lack a bit of detail and explanation, but it was still an entertaining read, so yeah. Can't really complain too much! I just hope it's not as bad as Titanic. :P

It is indeed called that, and in the Norwegian translation it is refered to as utpoium.

No it is not as bad as Titanic. I thought Titanic was horrible and the fact that it was their selling point almost turned me off the movie. Glad I decided to watch it though.

"I want to say that the game is flawless, but it isn't quite true. You see when there are many goo balls on the structure you're building and there are different types, it might be hard to catch the type you need. That can be a problem in certain levels. Like in one level you are building a bridge over spikes. The moment it leads too much forward, you will need to grab a goo ball of the type that is immune to spikes. If you miss though, you will kill a whole lot of the other goo balls."

Yesyesyesyesyesyesyesyes!

That really ruined the demo for me. It made the final level on it no fun at all. :(

Well, hopefully it'll be easier with the mouse.

Oh, and good review!

Good review! The Green Mile may well be good. The Shawshank Redemption was actually reasonably written (not well written, but it was alright) unlike his horror stories. (Don't kill me people!)

Coincidentally I like The Green Mile much more (the film) than The Shawshank Redemption. Way less sentimental and melodramatic. And its' pretty sentimental and melodramatic! I mean I like it a lot!
