3.0 out of 5 stars I'm a little unsure., 12 Jun. 2016
I'm really unsure on this film I like it but I also don't.

The film is fan service through and through. Nods to all the old films and lore and it is slowly added throuought the film.
The acting is well done with odd actors that I just don't agree with as the casting. Would rather have not seen the face of the main villain. Earth Vader was so good because he was obscure and never seen. If one thing I would have liked for them to copy it would have been that for atleast this one film.
The special effects are as you would expect from starwars and follows tradition. Each film utilises the best CGI of the time.

Now the not so great. Spoilers

The film feels stale and a rehash of start wars episode 4. The plot is very similar but on a larger scale.
I would also have left the last scene from the film for the next film as it feels a little tacked on to this one.
I hope the next one try's more for originality apnow they have got the fan service out of the way,

I'm very mixed on this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice ff9 soundtrack., 4 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Final Fantasy 9 (Audio CD)
I do this the prices these go for is a little high.and that's the same for all game soundtracks. But I payed 29 for a new copy and I think it's well worth that. 4 disks worth of music that are close to an hour a piece.

Of your looking at this then you know what the music is like with is classical orchestral score with flourishes of electronics.

Not all the songs are great but there all short from a minuet to about 5 max.

The cd case is similar to that of the game. This comes in a card Sleave and a nice booklet with movie art and the track listing plus some info and lyrics. Nice set

4.0 out of 5 stars Low mood album that grew on me., 16 May 2016

This review is from: Tunnel Blanket (Audio CD)
When i first got this album..i was disappointed with it. I found it to be a slow. Quiet and boring listen. BUT

Over the past few years the album has really grown on me.
The tracks are less rock oriented and more ambiance driven. There are less leads and the precution is stripped back. The tracks have some movement bit not alot.

This album os not for everyone and is a musy listen before you buy expecially if you have listened to there first ep and album. Its a big departure. There are eliments of old in here but few and far between.
I find if i feel low this album makes me sit back and think. As i have grown with it i apreceate the mood it sets and love the album.


Room
Room
by Emma Donoghue
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

4.0 out of 5 stars Writen in s different way to most but well worth a read., 12 May 2016
This review is from: Room (Paperback)
I watched the film on Monday. Wanted to see how different the book was. So picked that up late Tuesday and finished it Thursday.

I am the kind of person who reads a little bit at a time so a book lasts me ages. This has lasted me 3 days.

The story is slow paced on many ways but is enough to keep you interested. It is split into 5 long parts that creeps a steady flow with no chapters.

The writing of the book is a little different as it's from the perspective of a 5 year old child who dose not know the world. I found this hard to get into at first and re read parts over to make sense of it but I soon got used to it and found it fine.

The story is good and gripping and is less on suspense more on emotion and feelings. It's not normally my kind of book but the crime element and the more realistic conduct in the end kept me hooked.

I found the book a good read. I like the film slightly more for some reason. But the book is well worth a read. The book and the film. Make you think about how victims feel after there ordeal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a watch at the least. In my top 3 films., 10 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Room [DVD] [2016] (DVD)
Room.

I watched the film before I read the book but after watching this film I was hooked. I got the book the day after and read it within 2 days and for how I normally read books that's very good for me.

Story
The story (minor spoilers of you know nothing about book or film) of room is a simple premise of a woman who is kidnapped as a teen is kept in a room by her kidnapper. She has a child called Jack and the book starts on his 5th birthday. The film for the first half is how they live in room and the imagination of a small child in an enclosed space. It looks at the affect the situation has on ma from a child's perspective. How ma has kept Jack happy in room and finally the escape attempt. The second half is the dealing with freedom from the eyes of a boy who never knew of the outside world apart from the snip its of TV and adjusting back into life by ma.

Actors
The actors in this film are brilliant. Ma is a character of a full emotional range her expressions and movements tell you her feeling before she speaks. She portrays a desperate and loving mother with a flawless performance. Jack was 7 or 8 when filming room and for such a young age he is amazing. He plays the emotional scenes very well showing his anger, sadness, fear in a realistic way. His performance during the first scenes of escape are just perfect and really powerful.

Cinematography
The way the film is shot is stunning. Considering the first half of the film is in a room with one skylight it is easy to tell if it is day or night from the lighting. There is no need to tell you if a day has passed as the set and lighting give that away easy enough. The room set looks lived in and feels realistic. Some shots are very artistic in and outside of room such as the sunlight from the skylight. The quick cuts to help with time passage. The film is amazingly shot using both close up shots and long shots even in smaller spaces.

Tasteful
Considering the film is about kidnapping, rape and abuse the film is not violent or depraved. There is some violence but it is very very minimal one quick scene that last seconds. There is no rude scenes between ma and old Nick on screen it is done tastefully so you know what's happening but not seeing it. The film is all shot from the eyes of an innocent child and works beautifully.

The film leaves you with a funny feeling. It is both sad and uplifting. It is a film that makes you think how this could happen anywhere as seen all over the world with the cases that influenced the book and film.
This film is very moving and I don't normally feel moved by films the only one that moved me was the hunt as you seen the depths of depression. One scene in particular made me feel sad yet smile was the escape with the use of this will destroy you as a soundtrack. In my top 3 films.

The screen cover was bent so now won't go flat.
A little big for those with smaller arms. A little lose on me but not by much.

3.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, looks amazing but has pulls due to bag., 16 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The look is amazing. Bright and colourful, the pockets hold everything I need it to. The material feels comfortable and fits well.
My only con is I where a camal pack as I go for a long time and also go up the tracks and trails so need to Carry rather a lot. This has resulted in the material pulling for some unknown reason so there are pulls to the sides under the arms where the straps are.

4.0 out of 5 stars Played all the games and this is an improvement., 16 April 2016
This review is from: Dark Souls III (PS4) (Video Game)
I have played all the games for PS3/4 and enjoyed them all. I never got far in bark souls 1&2 as I can't get used to the slower combats. I have completed bloodborne and loved it.

Difficulty
Well it's what everyone mentions. Ds3 is in my opinion is easier than previous ds games but a little harder than bloodbourn. The combat has been speed up from previous dark souls games and makes it seem more responsive but at the same time the bosses are also faster moving ramping up some of the difficulty. The game is very much a ds game in the turn of charictor building which was a little lacking in bloodborne.

The world is a mix of both games. The DS games for there castles, towers and the like the. Bloodborne for a few areas such as the village. The graphics in some areas look rough and the frame rate has dropped on me in a few areas. Looking over walls where you are not really have to the textures can look ps2 era but anywhere else in the game looks amazing. Not as good as bloodborne but the game seems much bigger.
The combat is now smooth and not an annoying clunk fest. I love dark souls but the combat was just to slow and clunky. The special moves work wonders on most wepons.
The bosses are hard even the first one killed me a good few times. But there predictabul in most cases. They are the usual dark souls affair. Large bosses that you need to go for the feet or hands. Regular humans that are rapid and kill you quick.
Online is a must on some bosses unless you are patient or amazing at the game.
One con I did find was the camera but that has been fixed now and the controls feel comfortable.

The game is better than previous DS games and on par with bloodborne. Faster combat works well and the difficulty is not as hard as previous games so more accesabul like bloodborne. The game is addictive.
