3.0 out of 5 stars ........, 14 July 2007
the first movie was pretty creepy
it spooked me good, then i saw the spoof and could finally laugh at myself for getting own3d
but then this.
for a minute i was lead to believe there'd be light. that was invigorating,
most horrors are just uncontrollably scary, you can't do anything if you're caught up in it, just accept the inevitable
with this i thought i'd be able to put the matter to rest, to be rewarded with rainbows
it didn't happen
so, you're lulled into a false sense of security, things start to make sense and the whole thing has a greater meaning, then.. b1t*hslapped back to reality
was it a clever twist, i think not
i was ready to applaud it and nestle both installments on my *classics* shelf, but after the flip-side, i was left grizzling
if you like pointlessness, you'll no doubt love it
but for me, if something happens and it effects an area, fair enough. with this second movie it's as tho the evil disregards the laws of physiques and is free to do whatever, at will
wrong imho
what happened to causality?
exactly.
summed up:
it's aiight but then it actually doesn't make sense.

4.0 out of 5 stars i liked it, 14 July 2007
This review is from: Pulse [DVD] (DVD)
nice and creepy, it plays on technology *the internet* in particular. we're all connected virtually
when you have something that you can't escape from or you're comfortable with, for that to get turned into the thing you need distance yourself from, is pretty trippy
it portrayed itself well, it was scary and you'll enjoy watching it
i've nothing bad to say about it, it's not *awesome*, but not allot nowadays is
thumbs up - good flick

1.0 out of 5 stars silence of the lambs, 14 July 2007
This review is from: Hannibal Rising [DVD] (DVD)
^^ one of my top favourite movies, *ever*, period
honestly, i've watched it over 50 times and near enough know it by the letter
everything that has tried to follow on from, or in this case lead unto, pales.
lol, it hurts my head trying to articulate this movie, it created a new level for me being *bored*
i really tried, but i couldn't sit through it
actually, it was so bad it was painful - not an exaggeration
what was the director thinking?, who's fault was this?

1.0 out of 5 stars pointless boring, 14 July 2007
This review is from: Premonition [DVD] (DVD)
one thing i'm dumbfounded by is how long people can take to say whether it's good or not
get to the point, nobody wants your life story
::)
with that in mind, this film is slow, boring and it tries to be smart but ends up being a confusing waste of time
everything was bad.
if you suffer with insomnia, this'll get you nice and sleepy

1.0 out of 5 stars look *zombies*! ....., so?, 14 July 2007
This review is from: 28 Weeks Later [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
yawn, i'm hating how much rubbish i'd been previously excited by.
do something new for heavens sake!
this was more than disappointing, it was also quite boring
zombies, yeah? and?
not worth it, it's not even scary cos you know what's gonna happen.
i quit, it was that bad
what can i say, save yourself the time, money and effort

1.0 out of 5 stars in a word = lame, 14 July 2007
cage couldn't save it
tell a lie, the bits where you see him are pretty sweet, the scrap comment he makes had me laffing, but then things change and i was like.. wtf
i don't even think kids will enjoy this as it verges on inappropriately scary (i'm saying that with my nine yr old sis in mind).
it's just lame, i'd just seen next so was ready to like this, it never happened
the one star's for cage, i quit when he was no longer apparent in the film.
it bites, hard.
that's all.

3.0 out of 5 stars pretty good actually, 14 July 2007
This review is from: Next [DVD] (DVD)
to me cage is one of my favourite actors of all time, a film just has to mention he stars in it and i'll be giving it a look.
i enjoyed this movie, unique and believable concept.
he carries a film well and with this i wasn't left let down.
worth watching and owning.

3.0 out of 5 stars eerie, 7 Jun 2007
this one wasn't as creepy as the first but thankfully it didn't let the side down

it moves in a worthwhile direction where you'll begin to assume you've got it all figured out, you get comfortable and that'll be your downfall

the switch played havoc with my mind, yet added a nice touch in progressing the story

this is the kind of movie you watch and think it's ok, not too scary but, the after-thoughts are what gets you

i like to watch a film then not to have it play on my mind, does that make this proficient or furtively malevolent

you decide :o)

1.0 out of 5 stars sucks, 7 Jun 2007
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
brought this because i'm clueless, theme hospital happens to be one of my favourite pc games *ever*, since getting a mac i needed find a replacement, this wasn't it

this game puts lame out of business

everything about it was substandard, the gameplay wasn't fluid and infact playing it felt like a chore - extremely yawning

it's my fault for the spur of the moment purchase, i actually believed it'd be worthwhile

i can't even begin to explain how disappointing it is

-0/5

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect sound, 7 Jun 2007
i brought it for the music system and surround sound, used the movie setting seldomly because my focus on this wasn't it's dvd capability (which happens to be multi region but you need to buy a modified scart lead so the picture shows in colour)

the sound is crystal clear even if you turn the volume upto full blast, no distortion comes from any of the speakers

the one thing it lacks and i hated, was that you can't repeat one song, it would repeat the whole album only, so you'd need keep the remote handy so you could keep pressing back, if you wanted to hear that track over and over again

it has multiple customisation settings for changing the ambiance, but all those technicalities went over my head

have since updated the main system but because i loved the sound so much, brought the basic unit (without dvd selector) and added 6 more speakers to use in my bedroom

now due to the modding, i can't turn this up past the halfway mark because the earth starts to shake

it should've lost a point for the repeat flaw, but it gained it back due to being able to maximise the bass with the digital sub woofer button
