Written by Jeff Lindsay this book is a crime thriller with a twist. The main character works for the police analysing blood from various cases. He is a normal man with a normal job and a normal gilfriend, but in his spare time, he is a serial killer himself.
But dont worry, on his foster dad's instructions, he only kills people who he feels deserve it.
When some strange murders happen in Miami, where Dexter lives, he becomes fascinated by them and yearns to find the killer whom he feels he has a special bond with but he's not sure why.
Wont say anymore since it would ruin the story. Now go and read it! It is a brilliant book that I could hardly put down once i'd started. I havent seen the tv show yet but would like to after reading this. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys crime thrillers, as I do.
Great film starring Kirsten Dunst and Eliza Dushku (Wrong Turn and Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Not a film you'd expect to find Eliza Dushku in, but she plays the role brilliantly.
The film is about a cheerleading squad from a High School in SandDeiego who are determined to win the national championship trophy. After all, they had for the past five years. When their captain leaves school for college Torrance (Kirsten Dunst) is made the new captain. However, she soon finds out that their former captain had stolen all of their routines from 'the clovers', another cheerleading squad from East Compton. So its down to Torrance to think up a new routine to get them through the competition. Desperate, she hires a choreographer, but it turnrs out some of the other competitors had the same idea.
This is definitely a film just for teenage girls, as I found out when I made my boyfriend watch it. Its got humour, romance, moral lessons and catchy music. But I wouldn't admit to just anyone that I own it.

-Spotlight on Location
-Make-Up and Wardrobe Tests

This is a Warner Brothers film, directed by Laurence Kasdan and is based on my favourite book by Stephen King. With Morgan Freeman starring, you can't go wrong.
Its about four friends who rescue a boy called Douglas or 'Duddits' from some school bullies, and end up being granted with some strange powers. Years later, although they have their own lives, they meet up every year to go hunting. This year, however, they find themselves in a quarantine led by Morgan Freeman, and become part of a battle against virus-carrying aliens, with the help of Duddits who is reaching the end of a fight with leukemia.
Special Features Include:
-Dreamwriter: an interview with stephen king
-lifted scenes and original ending
-DreamWeavers: the visual effects of dreamcatcher
The film is rated as a 15. The running time is 128 minutes, and the dvd has subtitles in English. French, Arabic and Dutch.
Its a great film, although very gory at times, so not for the faint hearted. If you like alien films, horrors and morgan freeman then I would definitely recommend it. I'd read the book aswell, cos it helps to understand the film alot better.
ABC 1 is an American channel which you can now get on sky and freeview (channel 15). Its great for fans of American comedy programmes, like Scrubs, 8 Simple Rules and Home Improvement. If you're watching it on freeview, however, transmission ends at 6.00pm so you miss alot of the good evening shows. But if you're paying to watch it on sky, it runs pretty much 24/7.
The one problem with this channel is the fact that there are two advert breaks in every programme which can ger extremely annoying. There'll be one after the theme tune and one about 2 minutes before the end, which seems slightly pointless.
Not to mention the fact that Sheila's Wheels are now in partnership with them, so every time the adverts come on, you get a burst of that bloody song. >I
BUffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is 15 years old when she finds out that she has been chosen to be the vampire slayer. She is given the responsibilty of fighting demons and vampires. After burning down her school gym in LA, she moves to Sunnydale, which it turns out was built on a hell mouth, and attracts vampires and demons from all over the world. In Sunnydale, she meets her best friends Willow (Alyson Hannigan) and Xander (Nicholas Brendon), who join her in her battle against evil, assisted by her watcher (Anthony Stewart Head) whose job it is to train and assist her. She soon falls in love with cursed vampire angel, but sadly things just couldn't work out for them....
Throughout the seven seasons, buffy fights against an array of demons and creatures and saves the world from hellish fates on several occasions.
It is a brilliant tv programme, filled with horror, drama, comedy, romance and action. There's something in it for everybody - even a musical episode.
Sarah Michelle Gellar has also starred in films such as cruel intentions, the grudge and scooby doo.
The Harry Potter books have, over the years, become ledgendary, and JK Rowling has become one of the richest women in the world.

Oatiflakes was recently developed by Weetabix due to increasing interest in the benefits of Oats.
The ingredients include wholegrain oats, maltodextrin, oat bran, sugar, malted barley extract. salt, potassium chloride and vitamins.
0.3g salt equivalent
The packaging is a traditional recyclable(thumbs up) cereal box with a white plastic bag inside. It is bright and colourful, as packaging should be, and uses a heart presumably to symbolise healthy hearts.
Personally, I think oatiflakes taste quite bland and could be alot sweeter, but they are a healthy cereal, and if you add fruit that can give them alot more flavour. Or you could just buy the version that comes with fruit....
My best friend fuelled my new found black books addiction when she showed me her new DVDs last christmas.
Its a hilarious british comedy, starring dylan moran and bill bailey that I seem to be able to watch over and over again and still find myself in fits of laughter.
The show follows the lives of bernard(dylan) the alcoholic owner of a book shop, his assistant manny (bill), and Fran who works in a shop next door.
Dylan Moran plays the part of bernard perfectly and makes it so much funnier. His irish drunken slur adds charisma to all the jokes.
Its just a shame there were only three seasons cos I would have loved to have seen more of it.
I studied book at school in year 9 and after reading it, I had a slight obssession trying to find it in shops. This book was truly amazing, and really affected me. It is about a young boy named kingsely who is forced to live in a strange house with another boy named hooper and his father, because kingsley's mother takes on the job of being their housekeeper. While kingsely is there, he is horribly bullied by hooper and has no escape. You must read the book to find out how kingsely managed to end his torment.
This book is fairly easy to read and really does make you think.
The game of this mario game is to save princess peach and her castle from the hands of bowser. In order to do this, you have to work your way through 75 out of 100 levels to collect the power stars, battling bowser 3 times along the way. Most of the levels are hidden inside paintings, walls or mirrors that you have to jump into. There's loads of different levels to complete and its a game with loads of variation and things to do. After you've collected 75 stars and defeated the final bowser, there's still 15 more start to collect until you've completely finished the game, so it can keep you entertained for days.
This kart racer is great for multiplayer games, with 16 different tracks to race, and its great fun shooting at people with power ups. You can also just choose to do battles, where all the players start the game with three balloons, and everytime you are caught out by a shell or another power up, you lose a balloon. The last to lose all their balloons wins. If you're playing the game solo, you can still take part in grand prixs and beat your own personal time trial records. There are 8 different characters to choose from, including mario, bowser, toad and yoshi.
This is one my favourite nintendo 64 games. Its a one player adventure game with a great storyline. It focuses around a child named link who is sent on a mission to save the princess zelda and her castle from her enemy, using his ocarina to travel back and forth in time. The game starts off in a world where everything is perfect, but then the world turns dark and its up to link to save it. Having never left the place where he lives, this is a big adventure for him. The game has great graphics and is one of the only N64 games which has night and day. There's loads to get through and could keep you busy for days.
This is a brilliant adam sandler film with a brilliant soundtrack, featuring 80s hits like White Wedding and Material Girl. The film is about a wedding singer named robbie (sandler) who is dumped by his fiance on his wedding day. He then meets julia(drew barrymore), who is engaged to a nasty piece of work named glen. Straight away there seems to be a spark between robbie and julia, but you'll have to watch the film to find out what happens. This is one of those classic rom coms that leaves you with a grin on your face at the end that fills with shame. I would definitely recommend it.
Having been a roald dahl fan since the first time I read George's Marvellous Medicine at age 7, of course I think this cartoon adaptation is brilliant. The story follows the adventures of a little girl from an orphanage who accidentally befriends a giant when she spies him out of her bedroom window stealing dreams from people in the middle of the night. Thankfully for her he is the big FRIENDLY giant and takes her back to the land of the giants where he is in danger of being eaten by the not so friendly giants........
This is one of my favourite films of all time and I have watched it so many times I could probably recite the lines in my sleep. It follows the adventures of blacksmith will (orlando bloom), governer's daughter Eliziabeth (Keira Knightly) and pirate Jack (Johnny Depp). Will releases jack from prison to help him rescue his one true love, elizabeth, from the evil captain barbossa who is trying to save himself from a curse put upon him from stealing some aztec gold. This film as filled with action, romance, and comedy, and is horribly addictive, making you want to watch it over and over again. I would definitely recommend it to children and adults.
