1.0 out of 5 stars This is a joke right?, 4 Dec. 2005
This is worse then i could ever have imagined it to be. Its just another way of 50 cent trying to convince the world hes a gangster, which he is not. The storyline is...wait a minute there is no story, I forgot.
The whole never works, and seems like a San Andreas cash in. Ok so its gory, violent...but everything so unrealistic. I mean come on, 50 Cent running the streets with his cronies and hoods gunning down other gang members and police? Please, the closest 50 cent will ever get to holding a gun is in a video games arcade.
50 cent, mate, your not a gangster, you never will be, so stop with this whole bad boy wannabe imagine already!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars I blinked and it was gone....., 3 Dec. 2005
If your looking for a short game, you found it. This should have been the greatest Star Wars game ever, but sadly its one of the worst. What happened exactly? I was playing on it....and it finished. Oh and its pips squeeks too, my gran could complete this with her eyes closed.
Get Battlefront 2

1.0 out of 5 stars What the hell was that?, 29 Nov. 2005
I know it was filmed over 80 years ago, but this is pure and utter bore! How on earth can people say this is the best scary movie ever made and briliantly filmed and acted i dont know!
Firstly, the picture quality is astonishingly bad! You'd think that with all the new technology available today that someone could make the picture atleast bareable, yet instead it practically hurts to look at.
The caharcters can NOT ACT! its worse then a 5 year olds christmad concert at school, the movements are corny and its all sooooooooooooooooooooooooo terrible!
I know you'll read this review and decide to buy it anyway because the overall rating is 5 stas, but trust....its way over-hyped.

The Ring Volume 0 (Ring (Dark Horse))

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST OWN!!!, 20 Nov. 2005
Age Range: 16+
This is a must for any comic book or manga fan. It tells you more about how 'The Ring' came about, who the girl at the bottom of the well is, and what the hell happened.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical Manga..., 20 Nov. 2005
Age Rating: 16+
School pupils who are constantly being disruptive in class are put on an island and forced to kill each other for the ultimate prize...freedom. If more then one of them is alive after the time limit has passed, bomb tags on their necks are detonated...and everyone dies. The whole game is filmed in a 'big brother' way, and broadcasted on national television.
For those of you who have not seen the film, read the novel or read this manga, WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN! A bunch or kids hacking and shooting each other up in order to stay alive may sound gruesome...and it is...very...but it's also extremly entertaining!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, if just a little confusing...., 19 Nov. 2005
The first time I watched this manga film, I was blown away by the animation and story, but was left a little baffled at the end. I got the general idea of it all, but had to re-watch in order to fully undertsnd it.
It's intelligent in the fact that it can entertain the viewer without excessive scenes of rape (Urotsukidoji) or violence, although it did contain some graphic nudity.
Generally though, it was good.

4.0 out of 5 stars CITY OF GOD- a short review, 6 Nov. 2005
A highly thrilling and powerful tale of the slums of Rio, aka City of God. Although fuelled mainly by the violence, guns and drugs, this ain't no complete washout without a plot. It tells the story of various hoodlums and smalltime gangsters living in poverty, where not even the police can bring to a hault the daily slaying of innocent hold-up victims and gang warfare massacres.
Expect the unexpected.

4.0 out of 5 stars OH MY GOODNESS!, 1 Nov. 2005
This has to be the weirdest, sickest, goriest and most horrifically realistic movie i've ever seen. The violence is totally over-the-top, what sort of twisted minds thought of such madness? Ok, so this version isn't uncut, however i've seen either versions and they are practically the same give or take one or two scenes.
The cast and director actually had to go to court because of this movie after the goverment claimed that the violence on screen was real, and wanted proof from makeup designers and co that it was all fake!
Putting aside all the critisizm, it's actually a rather good movie. The first time I viewed I almost shat my trousers. I cringed in disgust at how gruesome it was. But i suppose that's what horror films are all about....Violence, gore plot or good script. That's right...just violence and gore!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultra-violent entertainment!, 28 Oct. 2005
Apart from 2001: A Space Odyssey, this has to be the best sci-fi movie of all time. And no, before you ask, it's not one for the kids. Why? Let me just put it this way, unless you confident in showing your children a film with more dead bodies then Saving Private Ryan, more gore then Evil Dead and more profanity then South Park...make sure they've gone to bed before you view.
It's a very simple story, but clever, and the script is suprisingly decent (Unlike Verhoven's other masterpiece Starship Troopers).
After murphy is shredded with hundred's of shotgun pellets by a gang of drug dealers, he dies (obviously) but is brought back to life as a robot with a bullet proof body, an unlimited supply of ammo and a rid the streets of drug dealers, murderers, thugs etc. But there is one ultimate target, a man with an army bigger then the police...a man with more guns then the army, the leader of the gang who killed him.
It can be pretty horrific at times, with more violence the A Clockwork Orange and Total recall put together...but it's very comic book like, over-the-top stuff.
If you enjoyed Starship Troopers, Totall Recall watch this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Carnival of terror!, 27 Oct. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is probably the most famous horror movie ever made, along with other classics such as The Exorcist, Evil Dead and Halloween.
Just as The Omen did, it keeps gore to a minimum, with little graphic on screen violence. However the acting, camera work, music and claustrophobic settings make it a pretty freaky piece of cinema.
5 youths set out on a journey across Texas for a summer vacation, planning to spend some time relaxing in an old, isolated house far from any town or city. But, after running out of gas, they decide to go and search for help, unaware that they are about to enter a neverending nighmare that will last until morning the next day, including a chainsaw dwelling mad man, creepy hitchhiker and a whole family of maniac cannibals intent on murder, mayhem and pretty much anything else that's weird.
The film was banned after it's release to a shocked public, and only now has it become available to own uncut.
Buy it
