5.0 out of 5 stars Has it's falls and big up's, 3 Feb 2008
This review is from: WWE - Armageddon 2006 [DVD] (DVD)
The final event of 2006 and with the lack of ECW: December to Dismember WWE had to put on a well worth show and it did happen with Smackdown bringing WWE Armageddon 2006.

Kane vs MVP- Inferno Match

This is a fairly good match but i would of loved MVP to win it but this one is ok Kane does most of the work in the match while MVP looks scared for his life. 7/10

WWE Tag Team Championship Fatal 4 Way Ladder Match- London and Kendrick vs The Hardys vs MNM vs William Regal and Dave Taylor

Match of the night most of the men during the match pulled off big moves London and Kendrick take some good risk taking moves aswell as getting top quality action from The Hardys. William Regal and Dave Taylor do not show much as Regal gets scared to even climb the ladder. MNM's Joey Mercury takes one of the most shocking moves the matt holds both of MNM Jeff does a leg drop then the ladder right in Joey Mercurys face all you then see is blood everywhere and Joey's eye is already shut shocking footage. We then see more high lying action all the way in the match when then Kendrick and London pick up the win the real winers should have been The Hardys or MNM. 10/10

The Boogeyman vs The Miz

Not much of a match very slow and not long The Miz is scared all i can remember is Boogeyman putting worms into The Miz mouth sick but funny. 3/10

WWE United States Championship- Chris Benoit vs Chavo Guerrero

Not a bad match but really it is worth a miss and there is not much worth saying about it this is kind of quality you would get on a normal smackdown broadcast. 4/10

WWE Crusierweight Championship- Gregory Helms vs Jimmy Wang Yang

Pretty good Jimmy Wang Yang is not the most interesting wrestler but Gergory Helms is great but this match i would give half the marks 5/10

The Undertaker vs Mr Kennedy - Last Ride Match

Another good match to the event a lot of this heads out of the ring and the way you have to win is put your opponent in a hearse and drive it out of the arena. Both men take this match outside for quite sometime very little in ring action they fight it out on top of the titantron when Kennedy throws Undertaker off it and believe me the action in the match keeps on coming. 9/10

Batista and John Cena vs King Booker and Finlay

I really do not care about this match i never watched it mainly it involved Cena and we all knew he would win this should not of been the main event. As for not watching this match there is no score. But we know it will have the same moves from Cena as always.

DVD Extra:

There is only one Extra put to this pretty good event shame i would of loved to have seen what happened backstage to MVP i would of loved to here a few words from the teams in the ladder match but we get non other then a match from 1998.
To be honest to have this match on DVD 3 times this is from Unforgiven in your house 1998 and it is Undertaker VS Kane the first ever Inferno match. This match is good we see Paul Bearer bleed a lot of in ring then out of the ring action as i said good match just a bit tired of seeing it oh the match features Vader where Undertaker does a dive on both Vader and Kane great move. I have it already on the WWE Unforgiven 1998 DVD back under the WWF releases and on Tombstone: History of the Undertaker.

Overall good event shame the DVD only had the one extra but this is worth owning and the best event Smackdown has to offer and also this is one of the best events of 2006. 3 matches the Inferno with Kane and MVP, Ladder match and Last Ride match make this event 5/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eddie Guerrero takes his last PPV match, 21 Jan 2008
This review is from: WWE - No Mercy 2005 [DVD] (DVD)
This was Eddie Guerrero final Pay Per View event and made it a pretty classic match Eddie should of won the match but the end of the match with Eddie's smile at Batista was funny and worth watching. The amount of fun and excitement from both men really give this match a worth watch and Eddie try's to pull out some heel tactics but then plays the match fair. Both men in the match really gave it there all with this in all is probably one of the best matches 2005 had to offer and without of a doubt this is the best Smackdown event of 2005.
Undertaker vs Randy Orton and Cowboy Bob Orton in a casket match this was a good match i like the part when bob sprays the fire extinguisher right in undertakers face then an RKO from randy Orton. The win is when Orton takes a hit to Undertaker's head with the chair causing undertaker to fall and be locked in the casket. After that Orton goes crazy and burns it on fire then to find out in the DVD extra that Undertaker is gone and no where to be found. Which left Bob and Randy shocked.
Ken Kennedy had his WWE PPV debut against hardcore holly the match was pretty good Kennedy made it interesting and entertaining because thats what he does best.
Lashley also made his PPV debut against Simon Dean where the loser would have to eat tons of cheese burgers.The sick thing is that this plays all the way through the PPV the part i hate is when Simon finds a hair in his burger sick. The other matches you don't really need to know.

The PPV is good the 2 best matches out of the whole thing is Eddie vs Batista. Undertaker vs Randy Orton and Bob Orton (Randy Orton's father). But if you want to see Eddie Guerrero in a classic battle at his last PPV event its worth buying this piece of history.

The DVD extras fail and lack this is really disappointing as the event was good and there was a good build up to the match with Batista and Eddie but nothing of the was provided in the extras. WWE and Silver Vision really lack with getting extras on any WWE DVD's it's rare we get good segments or matches. Still the DVD is a must buy to add to any WWE collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying if your a WWE collector, 17 Jan 2008
Raw's Greatest Hits could of giving more the amount of great songs missing of the CD is pretty shocking. It offers one song that has never been released before such as Mr. Kennedy: Turn Up the Trouble. I own WWE Volume 2 the album up to the current themes. I would buy this though i you are a big WWE collector like myself otherwise if your not or if you own the music it is not worth the buy. It should of at least had some Raw classics music on their.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you missed the show then check out this DVD, 16 Jan 2008
WWE Live in the UK DVD was Raw, Smackdown and ECW televised events showing in Birmingham, England October 2007 if you watched this on Sky Sports this is the exacted same 3 programs with the adverts cut and replaced with don't try this at home segments. The DVD is not bad ECW as always though has a bad show but now i will give you a list on the matches.

Raw

Randy Orton vs. Jeff Hardy

Santino Marella vs. Val Venis

Mr Kennedy vs. Randy Orton

Mr. McMahon introduces Umaga

Candice Michelle vs. Jillian Hall

Rory McAllister vs. Brian Kendrick

Hardcore Holly vs. Cody Rhodes

Shawn Michaels vs. Randy Orton

My thoughts:
Randy Orton wrestles 3 matches on Raw but all 3 are pretty good matches but then there mixed in with a match like Hardcore Holly and Cody Rhodes to boring wrestlers. I would only say what makes this Raw is the 3 Randy Orton matches the rest are nothing special but there is some great backstage segments with Hornswoggle and Coach

Now the ECW List

ECW

Handicap Match
CM Punk & Kane vs. Big Daddy V, John Morrison & The Miz

Elijah Burke & Nunzio vs. Jesse & Festus

John Morrison vs. The Miz

My thoughts:
First of all why team Elijah Burke with Nunzio that is to stupid i would say Elijah is to good for Nunzio anyway they end of losing to boring Jesse and Festus. John Morrison vs The Miz another match that lacks they could at least used another ECW star for the match but no they did'nt. The only match that is decent is the handicap match and thats only because CM Punk and Kane team together.

Now the listing to the Smackdown matches

SmackDown

Great Khali vs. Kane

Chris Masters vs. Chuck Palumbo

Matt Hardy vs. Finlay

Drew McIntyre vs. Brian Major

Deuce & Domino vs. Jimmy Wang Yang & Shannon Moore

Undertaker vs. Jamie Noble

Rey Mysterio vs. MVP

My thoughts:
Smackdown is an ok show again matches that lack Undertaker vs Jamie Noble we knew that this match would not take long and you would know who wins anyway. Chris Masters vs Chuck Palumbo never took much notice as i really did not care about them. Matt Hardy vs Finlay is fairly good MVP gives Matt help in the match. Great Khali vs Kane is way better then there match from Wrestlemania 23. Rey Mysterio vs MVP this match would have been great but pretty short and Finlay wrecks everything.

But now is pretty much the best part on the DVD it's an exciting match from Raw in London this done April

Special Feature:
Shawn Michaels vs. John Cena (Raw live from Earl's Court, London - 23/4/07)
My thoughts:
This match is almost 45 minutes long i hate Cena but i don't mind Shawn Michaels but this for sure is one of the best UK matches WWE have done. It is exciting and it is one of the reasons why you should buy this DVD. I can tell you it is way better then there Wrestlemaina 23 match.

Overall:
The 3 shows featured on the DVD all have matches that lack some you will love while others you will hate but if you are a WWE collector this one worth owning specially for the DVD extra.

1.0 out of 5 stars This movie is bad all the way round, 3 Jan 2008
This review is from: Tuxedo, The [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
The Tuxedo looks it could of been a good movie Jackie Chan plays a guy called Jimmy a Taxi Driver who cannot fight. Later he gets a Tuxedo which gives him powers to be able to fight. This movie is bad all around from bad acting to a really bad story this is one of the most boring movie i have ever seen.

If you want to see Jackie Chan in classic movies then check out Police Story, The new Police Story, Rumble in the Bronx, Project A. Leave this movie and don't check it out because i know that the real Jackie Chan fans will hate it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Are We Done Yet? I hope so, 2 Jan 2008
I was so happy to here Ice Cube make a sequal to the great movie of Are We There Yet?. But now watching this movie Are We Done Yet? this movie really tried so hard to make people laugh and it failed. The kids looked bored in this one thats the truth in the first they were having loads of fun in this it feels kind of serious. Then their is John C. McGinley he plays Chuck a man who does everything a police man, a builder, house wife do i need to go on thats over the top. John C. McGinley i don't mind but in this movie he was annoying. Ice Cube i thought was good in this he tired to be funny but just never worked you can blame the people who wrote the movie for that.

Are We Done Yet? just really involes Ice Cube and his family to move into a big house that needs sorting out with a whole load of problems. This movie has it had tons of problems wrong with it watch the movie and see what i mean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mario & Sonic finally together in this fantastic game, 2 Jan 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games is the best Olympic game that is out there pure fun all the way. The game features a whole load of events such as athletics, gymnastics, shooting, rowing, archery, aquatics, fencing, and table tennis also included the dream events. The dream events are nothing really to do with the Olympic and are fun.

You can chose from all your favorite characters from the Mario and Sonic series also add your Mii into the action. My favorite on the game is the skeet shooting and the aquatics events which have you in the pool. The game wears you out easy but you will want to keep playing because it does get very addictive.

The only problem is that the Wii has some trouble on games such as the table tennis as i found it does not respond well to that game and a few others but it does not really matter.

This features online connection but only to the leader board with records im trying to really beat. Anyone looking for fun buy this game it is great to play as a single player and multiplayer. This is really worth the money a must have for anyone who owns the Wii

2.0 out of 5 stars Could of been something fantastic but No, 2 Jan 2008
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Thrillville (PSP) (Video Game)
Thrillville is alright a little tiny bit like roller coaster tycoon. I thought this was going to be alot like roller coaster tycoon like you could build a ride where ever you want but no you cant, in Thrillville there are building points and you can only build rides in them places which is annoying and stupid. The music to the game isnt very good its actually boring the songs are made in house from the creators of the game.

The graphics on this are great theres alot of detail on the rides and the park surroundings. It has about 20 mini games which is the main reason why i bought this these include, trampolining, dodgems, first person shooter fighting robots and theres more some are good some are bad. With Thrillville you can walk around the park with your character and also go on the rides and have a bit of fun. You can also meet people and chat to people who visit your theme park you can flirt with them, chat about the theme park and also ask them random questions. This does get boring pretty fast and easy as it is a kids games its just so easy Thrillville. To people who want a challenge get roller coaster tycoon boxset it has every game from the coaster tycoon series check that one out its way better. Why does it get this rating for of 2 because its too easy and its pretty boring theres no challenge in this game and the music sucks.

Good
- some decent mini games
- graphics look pretty good

Bad
- Awful music
- lack of space to build rides
- cannot really build your own theme park it is already pre built
- silly storyline

Overall 2 out of 5

5.0 out of 5 stars The Simpson's take their biggest adventure yet where there set out to make you laugh and have fun, 1 Jan 2008
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Simpsons (Wii) (Video Game)
The Simpson's their popular worldwide its one of my favorite shows but the games just have never been that great only The Simpsons Arcade Game from Konami back in 1991 was it's major classic game.

The Simpson's Game hit all major platforms and i bought the Wii version and firstly it does have a few bad controls the jumping parts can be bad. You will die on quite a few stages due to bad camera angles but that is something you will have to deal with. As for the Wii controls they have been put together actually pretty good and for me they worked just fine.

This game has brilliant comedy in it which adds value to the game most stuff homer comes out with is really just going to make you laugh i couldn't stop. I love the cut scene's in the game because it just looks like your watching the tv show and makes it very entertaining.

The game is based on making jokes of over games such like Neverquest which is Zelda. There's even Medal of Homer which is really Medal of Honour. I have noticed that rip offs of Donkey Kong which steals professor frink and you have to save him. A weird looking Mario and Sonic also itchy and scratchy in a rip off version of Grand Theft Auto in this you play as Marge and Lisa and take out the city making it a nice place along with you is some dogs who team up with you.

Your going to be doing team work in every level while every Simpsons Character have there own ability and some levels can be hard to figure it out or even reach the destination. Homer turns into Gummy , a bowling ball, while Bart turns to Bartman, Lisa has the hand of Buddha, Marge has her speaker phone helping to guide a mob with her, Maggie tags a long with Marge but you do play as Maggie to help flick buttons that Marge can not get to.

This has exclusive games to the Wii as well called Wii moments in this you get 2 games. The games are bite night you play as homer in a boxing ring and you have to get all food that homer likes to gain points eat healthy foods you lose points. Then there is Bart Wings which the controls just do not respond at all annoying i know.

I only had the game 3 days since it was first released which i done 16 levels pretty quickly

The best level in the game is the last been in heaven and challenging god in a copied version of Dance Stage Fever or whatever it is called. You will also see Bender from Futurama who you will have to take out along with Simpsons creator Matt Groening myself i was shocked to see it but it was fun.

You will either love this game or hate it but i like it and it was way better then Simpsons hit and run. The comedy in this game will keep you entertained and for Family Guy fans the Simpsons beats Family Guy anyday.
