2.0 out of 5 stars Yes it's rubbish, but strangely watchable, 12 Jan 2014
This review is from: Red Riding Hood [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
If you've looked up reviews for this film, you're likely expecting the worse. While I can't say those reviews are wrong, I'm surprised I stayed engaged for as long as I did. Admittedly, I was doing something else at the same time, so perhaps this is a great background film. It's ridiculous and you wonder how the actors keep straight faces, but worth watching on Lovefilm if you want something in the background.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting idea, even if nothing spetacular, 12 Jan 2014
This review is from: Thale [DVD] (DVD)
This is a re-imagining of a traditional Norwegian folklore tale. It's mysterious, has a good atmosphere, and is a welcome change from shock and action heavy US horrors. It's by no means a great, or even good, film, but it remains a good pace throughout and wasn't ever terrible.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best comedies ever made, 19 Dec 2013
Blackadder is by a long way one of the greatest comedy series ever made. They simply don't make them like this anymore! Outstanding stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes it's iterative, but it's brilliant, 2 Dec 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: FIFA 14 (Xbox One) (Video Game)
This is really a brilliant game. The last Fifa I played was 12 on 360, and going to 14 wasn't a huge shock in terms of gameplay. Yes, this series is incredibly iterative, but being this good it doesn't matter. Incredibly, I've only played Ultimate Team and no other game mode yet. This is a huge game! While they've introduced new modes to UT, like seasons, it'd be nice for there to be more variety and time sensitive games/modes to play, but just in ultimate team. At the moment, I just play online seasons over and again. Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars There's no room in this inn..., 16 Nov 2013
This review is from: The Innkeepers [DVD] (DVD)
I don't quite understand why this film has gotten such a high score on Rotten Tomatoes. At first, I liked the approach this film was taking by taking a slower pace, and there are some funny touches. But I never found it interesting or frightening. The latter is really needed in a film like this. Avoid...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly the sequel to Hansel & Gretel you'd expect.., 16 Nov 2013
This film got abysmal reviews and while there is much to agree with them on, it's not all bad. Despite the gore, or perhaps because of it, this is the sort of film your teenage children will like; violence, blood, and some brief nudity. A completely pointless film but it's not the worst film ever made.

2.0 out of 5 stars Competent production, but confused, direction-less story, 3 Nov 2013
This review is from: Yellow Brick Road [DVD] (DVD)
This film sets up a great mystery, both by recounting historical events, and by what happens within the story itself. But this mystery is never solved or even resolved in any way. You are left as confused as the story, even when it ends. Frustrating film.


Chernobyl Diaries [DVD]

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been great, 2 Nov 2013
This review is from: Chernobyl Diaries [DVD] (DVD)
Such a shame this film was as disappointing as it was. It didn't even seem to go anywhere. If you've ever played the STALKER games for the PC, you'll have an idea of how spooky being stuck in Chernobyl could be. This doesn't relive that experience. Would like someone to take the idea and have another go.

2.0 out of 5 stars An uninspiring film but interesting back-story, 1 Nov 2013
It's a shame the film didn't make more of the back-story of the monk and the theories as to where this haunting came from. It should have avoided the special effects and jump scares and focused on developing the history, which would have made the film a lot more chilling.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull, scripted, movie game, 10 Oct 2013
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
I was surprised by just how dull I found this game. I didn't think I would love it, but I thought I'd get some enjoyment from it, as should be the case in an action game. But instantly I'm shown cutscenes, and these just carry on. This is barely a game - it's just an animated movie in which you have to push forward and spam a trigger every now and again. Not recommended.
