Definitely one of my favourite newer singer/songwriters, 'Soviet Kitsch' is my favourite album of hers. Although I like 'Begin To Hope' and 'Far' she seems to be going for a more streamlined sound,...

I started 'Blood Meridian' a few days ago, it took me a while to get used to his writing style but I'm getting into it now.

'I Spit On Your Grave' would be an interesting film to look at as it features a woman as both victim and killer, and being from 1978 portrays a woman as threatening long before 'Urban Legend' and...

I think the only film adaptation of a book I've read that matches the quality of the book is Stanley Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange'. Some criticise the exclusion of the final chapter of Burgess's...

I don't mind Within Temptation, but their older stuff for me sounds like a watered-down version of bands like Theatre Of Tragedy and Tristania, while their newer, more mainstream stuff seems to be...

For me 'The Birds' is up there with Hitchcock's very best, I'll always remember how much the bit with the birds on the swing creeped me out the first time I watched it.

'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' and 'Night Of The Living Dead' are my favourite horror films, but for nasty and gory, the castrations, animal slaughter and breast-hook scenes in 'Cannibal Ferox' need...

I hope Gaga gets to number 1, 'Telephone' is another great single from one of the best pop artists around at the moment. Cheryl Cole really can't compete.

I was a little dubious about Florence and the Machine at first, but I think 'Lungs' is a fantastic pop album without a single weak song, except for maybe "Kiss With A Fist" which I don't really feel...

I read it last year when I was 17, and I didn't really understand why it's considered such a classic. It's an enjoyable enough book and a fairly quick read, but not something I'd consider to be...

I wasn't sure about 'Telephone' at first but now it's one of my favourites on the album, the chorus is addictive. I agree that any song could be a single though, except perhaps 'So Happy I Could...
