    I've been meaning to post about this guy for ages but finally decided to after reading some comments on the kill Bill thread.

    I cannot remember the last time I read one of his reviews which I either agreed with or in which I saw any resemblence to the film I saw.

    Fair enough, people have different tastes, but it has got to the point now where if I have seen a film, I go and have a look at the review pages knowing he'll of thought the complete opposite. Which he invariably does. It would be laughable if it wasn't so annoying.

    As for his latest review-kill bill :rolleyes:. I appreciate that Until I see the film myself (roll on Frdiay ;)) I cannot really comment. however, I would say every review I have read has been almost universally positive. As has been everybodys post about it here and on other boards. Empire's review was a bit mixed but still pointed out a lot that it saw was good in the film and conceded that reservations with it may have had to do with the fact that it is really just half a movie. What did Paul reckon? garbage. No redeeming features, even slated what by all accounts is an excellent little piece of anime.

    How he got the job I don't know.

    So is it me or does anyone else think this guy is a joke?

    I have read a large number of this guys reviews, on channel 4 text I think.
    He is very rarely correct about films and when he is wrong he gets it very wrong.
    He proabably got the job as quality reviewers are hard to find.

    I think he got the job because he was the first one in the office to stick up his hand the day they asked who wanted to do the film reviews :rolleyes:

    Yup, I have to agree - I have read his reviews a few times and thought what the fudge is he on :confused:
    Don't know if it is the same guy who does the BBCi DVD News but he gets all his facts wrong as well! :rolleyes:

    I thought his Kill Bill review was spot on.
    I only read it after reading all the stick he got about the review on some other dvd/movie forum.
