5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect, 13 May 2016
I have loved Star Wars all my life and I feel that this sequel to the original trilogy really compliments the franchise. However every film has it's plot holes and here are a few for The Force Awakens:

*SPOILER ALERT*
Rey has the ability to use the force although she does not know this until Kylo Ren uses the dark side to force her to tell him where the map leading to Luke Skywalker is. On her first attempt she overpowers a trained jedi turned evil who had wiped out all Jedi except Luke. With no training whatsoever. I don't know about anyone else but this seems a bit far-fetched to me.

Also when the rapthar catches Finn, why doesn't it just tear him apart like it did with the others? Why was it dragging him down corridor after corridor until Rey saved him? Where was it taking him? Not exactly a plot fault but it did seem odd.

I hated Maz. What a pointless boring character thrown in to play the "Yoda role" in guiding our heroes. Where was she in previous movies? Why is she suddenly important? Why does she have Luke's lightsaber? This is just my opinion but for me i'd rather she wasn't in the film.

Otherwise the movie is stunning, exciting, well written, funny, scary, light, dark.... It had everything and it all fitted together beautifully into an awesome Star Wars experience the way it should be. Great new and classic characters together with an enthralling story and good pacing make this a brilliant film

5.0 out of 5 stars PS4 vs PS3, 8 Mar. 2016
PS4 is several times more powerful than the PS3 and comes with a lot more memory than most of the last gen models had. However even though all this power makes the PS4 unbelievably good for 1080p 60fps gaming with infinitely larger and more detailed worlds within games, it does mean that they have had to sacrifice backwards compatability (PS Now for streaming PS3 games is useless unless you have very fast internet). The PS4 runs too fast and too powerfully for PS3, PS2, and PS1 discs and this is a real shame, considering the Xbox One (albeit less powerful) can play 360 games on disc. In contrast, all PS3 consoles can play PS1 games and the fat 60gb model can even play PS2 discs aswell. Most PS3 games may only be 720p but the visuals will still look sharp on a 32" TV or even smaller.

So PS4 wins when it comes to the best gaming quality, but if you want one system to use for Playstation's infinite back-catalogue of classic games (Uncharted trilogy, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Star Wars Battlefront 2, etc) then you might want to consider opting for the much cheaper PS3.

As a media player the PS3 wins hands down. The fat PS3 models had four USB ports that would play pretty much any media format you need and the console even boasted SD card readers. The PS4 won't play most video formats on USB and doesn't play MP3 files. The most shocking fact though is that the PS4 is the first Playstation ever that can't play CDs. Instead you will have to use the Playstation Music (Spotify) app, which is actually handy for listening to music while gaming (one of the few things PS3 couldn't do). Both consoles have a good selection of media applications such as Netflix, BBC Iplayer and Youtube. Blu Rays and DVDs play well on both consoles however the PS3 featured a movie title and thumbnail for Blu Rays. The PS4 just leaves you to guess which disc you put in.

The controller battle is where PS4 has truly triumphed because the Dualshock 4 is BRILLIANT. It is far more comfortable to hold, it has all new share button, touch-pad, light-bar sensor features without making the controller feel cluttered or overwhelming. And the addition on a headphone jack is a godsend for anyone that doesn't have a bluetooth gaming headset or doesn't want to leave wires trailing across their room. The PS3 controller feels cheap and tacky next to the Dualshock 4.

Online multiplayer is free on PS3, however you need a PS+ subscription to do so on PS4. This angered me at first, however PS+ does give a lot of discounts and free games and if you get the year-long subscriction it only cost two or three quid a month so it's not as bad a thing as you might think. Also I have heard of way fewer reliability issues with online multiplayer on PS4, and if most of your friends are upgrading to the latest generation console you won't be disappointed if you do aswell.

As for games, both PS3 and PS4 disappointed in their early years with few blockbusters being released for some time. However both consoles now have brilliant games of various genres that will appeal to any modern gamer. However because the PS3 used a custom Sony chip that was difficult to make games for, that console doesn't have nearly as many games as it should have this late on in it's lifespan. On the other hand the PS4 is still new and fresh and yet has countless indie and blockbuster titles flooding in leaving gamers spoilt for choice. 2016 will see games like Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted 4, Horizon Zero Dawn, Gran Turismo Sport and other famous titles come to the PS4 while PS3 game production is just a trickle at the minute as developers gradually move on to the more powerful system.

IN CONCLUSION: If you want an all-in-one media centre that enables HD gaming and full backwards compatability and is ridiculously cheap now then the Playstation 3 is unbelievable value for money. However if you're thinking of the future, enjoy gaming with your mates, and want the best console gaming experience on the planet the Playstation 4 definitely won't disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who needs organs when you can have this?, 26 Jan. 2016
I sold my limbs and organs to science in order to buy this and it was the best decision of my life. I now live with just my head in a jar and get to stare at this beauty all day every day. Until I have to sell my eyes to pay off the loan I got anyway.

This review is from: Silent Cry (Audio CD)
This was a big change after the Comfort And Sound and Pushing The Senses albums. Feeder clearly wanted to make an epic rock album and there are echoes of Linkin Park in We Are The People.
Itsumo is a great song and is followed by a truely fantastic head-banger energetic rock tune: Miss You! Tracing Lines is a jumpy song that is alright but not a classic. Silent Cry is simply amazing and I can't say anything bad about. It takes my breath away.
I don't like Fires. It sounds lame and overdone whereas it could've easily been an amazing beautiful song. Heads Held High is much better and is strangely uplifting for such an emotional song. 8:18 is another good song, but as with most on this album,it doesn't really have much of a mainstream finish to it. Who's The Enemy is dramatic, dark and exciting. Into The Blue is another irritating one that I know Feeder could have done better with. Guided By A Voice and Sonorous are decent enough, but nothing special. Overall, I think this is a good album, but Feeder have made much better before and since.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums ever, 20 Nov. 2012
There are many albums that are good. Some of them can be great. But there are very few that can really touch you at the heart and make you wanna listen to it over and over again, but this is one of them.
For all of Oasis' faults as people, they were clearly a very talented band, and Noel Gallagher's songs are some of the best i have ever heard.
I am not exagerrating when i say this is a MUST HAVE for any collection.

I love this hifi! It plays CD, CD/R, CD/RW and MP3 discs! And I can play any MP3 player or Ipod through the Audio In socket! I haven't used the cassette player yet, but I'm glad I've got it so I can record radio programs when I want to. The remote is great, FM radio station names come up for you on the display (eg: Radio1 or BBCRadio2), AM reception is better than it was on my last radio, it is an extremely good-looking system and the speakers give superb sound quality. I would recommend this to anyone!

Besides Monster, Not Accepted Anywhere was a pretty average rock album. However I am pleased to say that this is much better. With the annoying backing singer gone and a massive improvement in songwriting, this is a great rock album! Loads of cool tracks, and Steve Mcqueen is FREAKIN AWESOME!!!!
