As The Dark Wave Swells
"Croatian instrumental surf rock combo" - the first descriptor that shows up on a Google search - tells most people all they'll ever need to know about this band, I dare say.     Any …

Tron Legacy
Tough gig, you would think, reprising a film that sank almost without trace 28 years ago. But Tron sank in heavy seas: it was released within a month of Stephen Spielberg's E.T. - The Extra Terrestrial …

Biyang OD-8
This is a superb product, particularly for the price.     To be clear: this pedal is designed to emulate the sound of a mildly, naturally overdriven tube amplifier. It isn't a distortion …

The Next Three Days
Is it too much to hope that, when a studio has the wherewithal - and budget - to pull together such cinematic luminaries as Russell Crowe, Brian Dennehy and Liam Neeson, that it won't insult its audience's …

Our Tragic Universe
Every reviewer (and I'm told, particularly me) is a frustrated writer. I'm occasionally taken to task for professional (although in my case call it amateur) jealousy in criticising writers who have the …

Lights Out in Wonderland
Wow. What a blitzkrieg.     As the last ripples fan to the edge of the pool, and DBC Pierre's "loose trilogy" bids the world adieu, you wonder whether he's not having trouble letting …

Despicable Me
I'm definitely over this ridiculous fad for 3D. I'm also over the Pixar-induced infatuation Hollywood seems to have with animated 'kidult" movies: predictably enough, even as the digital wizardry has …
