Ok game, got pretty boring soon into the game. A lot of repetition. Doesn't hold your interest at all, in my opinion. It seems good fun at the start, but quickly falls flat

Hmm...it was ok, quite a lot different from the book, yet saying that, it's what's expected from most book-to-films anyway. Didn't really think much of it. Though love Jeremy Irons; he's great at playing Macon Ravenwood. It wasn't terrible, just a little disappointing on many aspects

Quite a fun little game, a tad bit too creepy for my liking, but other than that aspect, it's very good, exciting gameplay
Not bad

5.0 out of 5 stars CHARIZARD!!!, 4 Aug 2014
This review is from: Pokemon Charizard EX Box (Toy)
Bought this as I really enjoy collecting and sorting trading cards, also, a huge Dragon fan, so double bonus in getting this brilliant Charizard box!!! The oversized Charizard EX is SO cool! I managed to obtain a rare Shiny Holofoil Talonflame, as well as a Full Art Charizard EX!!! Not much more I can add about this...a brilliant buy, worth every penny, so pleased with this! Love it 10/10 A must-have for card/Pokemon collectors :)

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT good :(, 30 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow, this was so disappointing. I was expecting, from the game description, it to involve you exploring the Isle of Berk, get to choose your rider and dragon, and take part in races/tournaments and the like. That was the main gist. I was quite looking forward to playing it, as How To Train Your Dragon is a pretty big thing and all, and I in particular love all things dragon-related, so was hoping a fun, engaging, platform adventure type game...sadly, this was not the case. For one thing, you are basically on dragonback, flying ALL THE TIME, there is no option to dismount and explore areas and things on foot, no cool dragon battle type stuff, that could have been taken from the first game, and improved on etc. All you do in the whole game is fly on your chosen dragon, take part in challenges, find hidden coins, achieve trophies for accomplishing feats, tasks, various dragon aerobatics etc And...uh...that's basically it!!! Poor, very poor...could have, should have been so much more...just a massive let-down 😑

This review is from: Frozen [DVD] (DVD)
Really enjoyed this film, another beautiful Disney animation. Really funny in places as well. Olaf the little snowman is quite sweet and is so funny! Has some great lines and quips throughout. Glad I decided to get this after a while of deciding. Lovely film with lots of humour, beautiful visuals, and lots of fun.

Being a lover of all things dragon-related, and LOTR as well, had to get this book. Smaug, in particular, is a BRILLIANT example of a dragon in all its glory! The book contains lots of different photos, conception art, writings by members of the WETA team, and even a prologue by Benedict Cumberbatch. Overall, a beautiful, glossy, lavish array of the work put into creating this magnificent dragon of The Hobbit!!! Love it 10/10

This review is from: Walking with Dinosaurs [DVD] (DVD)
Firstly, as stated above, most people comment how bad/stupid/annoying etc etc this film was, and I honestly have to say, I found it quite an enjoyable little film! Although, I do agree that there is a distinctly childish tone to it, and very much on the cheesy side.
However, even though these elements do spoil the main theme of the film, (which is a shame, as it could have, should have, been done a great deal more entertaining, rather than include those unnecessary, cringe-worthy aspects to it), apart from that, as a film in itself, the visuals are, if not stunning, are quite attractive, and pleasing to the eye in many parts-particularly the brief slow-motion shots. And the voices aren't THAT annoying! You hear worse on Pokemon etc.!!!
So yeah, it's not necessarily a bad film, it's just let down from its full potential. Could have been much better, but it's alright, if only for its visuals!

A bit clunky, does quite a lot more whirring than usual, and quite annoying that with this model they've taken away the actual disc slot and made the 'sliding door' on the top instead. But it is more eco-friendly than the previous consoles, and super slim, which is good, and especially when taking into account the weight of the PS3's first release!!!
