5.0 out of 5 stars YAY prequel!, 19 Jan. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been a big fan of the movie Ginger Snaps for years now; it was a scary, sexy, cool movie. Imagine the excitement when i found out about Ginger Snaps: Unleashed! ooooooh boy was i excited, and the film turned out great. But no, they hadnt stopped there, a few moths later appears Ginger Snaps Back, a prequel set in 19th centuary Canada. I was nearly hospitalised with excitement. The film sounded good, the trailer made it look good, and the film itself was astonishing! Great acting, great special effects (No CGI, oldskool), great sets and great story. This film kinda won me over.
In my opinion this is the best out of the three, the best werewolf film ever made in my books, please for the love of god make a 4th one.
Buy it, just buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Go black betty!, 21 Nov. 2004
Hey hey! here it is finaly, another highly anticipated game. As you can probably tell i am doing a review of each big game release of the year....ish....well the one's i like anyway lol.
I bought need for speed underground some time ago and i was unexpectedly blown away, i really do love modding cars to the extreme, so the idea of a sequel to the game was music to my ears. However i was a little cautious whilst buying the game, i was worried it wasnt going to be very good due to some bad reviews i have read.
But once again those reviews were wrong, this game is brilliant. It is much better then the original which i thought would be hard to beat, i think the open city to explore is a brilliant touch and gives you a bigger sense of freedom. The graphics are really beautiful and the gameplay is smooth and very fun. Once again all the different types of races have been pulled off perfectly, drag being my personal fave.
Thankyou EA games for making this, in my opinion it was an appology for Burnout 3. Which leads me to the games soundtrack...NFSUG2 has a brilliant soundtrack, it just suits street racing so well, the highlight being 'Spiderbait: Black betty' genius!
Looks like another great game blockbuster, unlike Burnout 3 and Halo 2, which have been slight dissopointments.
From now on i will put a chart at the bottom of my reviews, thanks for reading!
Blockbusting games:
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas = 10
Halo 2 = 7
Burnout 3 = 6
Need for Speed: UG2 = 9
Chronicles of Riddick = 10

4.0 out of 5 stars Earth will never be the same?, 17 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Halo 2 (Video Game)
Halo 2 is much like the original, which is some sense is good infact i guess you could call it great. But..and there is a but..
Anticipation was extremely high for halo 2, it was set to be a benchmark in gaming history, at least in my book it was. To sum this game up in one word would be great, it has most of what you would expect from a large scale FPS; the intense action the ace weapons and the cool baddies. The action is very similar to the first halo apart from the addition of duel weapons, which just makes all of the fights better. The new weapons are a real treat to use, especially the energy sword and the sub-machine gun. The vehicles are also still very cool, i just loove the warthog.
And now we come to the part you all hate, where i give my opinion on whats wrong with the game.
First of all i have to comment on the games length, it is way way WAY to short, i completed it within three days, whereas GTA:SA (A god of a game) took me almost three weeks. While halo 2 was very fun while it lasted i felt cheated when it came to the end, where did the rest of the game go? on holiday? Yeah lets just finish the game half way through the story...yeah...YEAH!
Another major fault with the game is in its cutscenes. Although the graphics in the cutscenes are some of the best i have seen they do tend to take a long time to load in, its a bit annoying after the fifth time it happens.
There are also a couple of minor things which i think tarnish the gameplay just a little bit. The fact that there are no longer any markers onscreen telling you where to go, which can sometimes leave you lost in a maze of identical corridoors. The other little complaint is that (For some reason totaly oblivious to me) the developers scrapped the old assault rifle! :o CRIMINAL! that gun was the signiture of Halo! why take it away? not good :(
Plus i would have liked to play more master chief, he's the dude!
Other than that Halo 2 is a great game, it wont last you forever (GTA:SA can do that) but it is fun while it lasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Before Finger Eleven, 13 Sept. 2004
This review is from: Letters Frm Chutney (Audio CD)
This cd was released in Canada only in 1995, personaly i find this to be a crime! Why was it not released internationaly? I think if it was, this band would have really took off and would be famous worldwide by now. As most people have no clue, the rainbow but monkeys changed their name for their 2nd album Tip in 1997, under the name Finger Eleven.(Best-Band-Ever).
I had no idea that Finger eleven had released another album before Tip, so when i found out i was excited as hell.
Would it be good?
Would it be dump?
Thank god it wasnt.
Letters from chutney is even better than i expected, its like Finger Eleven but......Funkey :D
Im not saying its better than Finger Elevens later music but it is definately as good.
Best songs (in my opinion) :
Danananana (you just cant help moving to it)
circles (makes you bounce lol)
nibber (great lyrics)
Cake (what a riff!)
Lets pretend (never before have i heard a song like it, go funk!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Since when were B-movies this good?, 11 May 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After a few years of desperatly waiting for a sequel to the sci-fi action romp Starship Troopers i gave up hope that another instalment would be made. But then i heard about this, hero of the federation. Hmm, i began to become interested, and so i read some reviews for the film, most of which said it was really bad; but i still thought they could pull it off. And they didnt half do that: i thought this movie was brilliant if not amazing, it was so different to the first one it was like a breath of fresh air.
Considering the film had a fairly low budget and a shooting schedule of 26 days! they really made something special. After watching the animated Roughnecks series i thought it would be a great idea to introduce the bugs that take over people into a movie. Phil Tippet (Good ladd) must have thought this aswell.
The only thing i would say was wrong with the film was the opening and closing scenes made to look like the mobile infantry television of the first film, but i understand that they wanted people to get a familiar feel to the first one.
This movie is very (very) violent and extremely bloody (not to the extent of Kill Bill though). The gore is great and is well done.
Oh there is just so much more i could say about this movie, but by the time you finish reading this i bet your all glad i didnt continue :)
Great film, roll on another sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tarantino does it again!, 19 Oct. 2003
I was very excited about going to see Kill Bill, and i was not dissapointed. Many many people think this movie is terrible and is ruined by the endless violence. I know its their opinion but i can't find any faults what so ever, this movie is amazing!
The violence and gore is done in a very unique way, i would describe it as a live action manga movie.
Tarantino is brilliant, and in my opinion this is his best film so far.
ROLL ON VOLUME 2!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Go Dino Crisis, 13 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Dino Crisis 3 (Xbox) (Video Game)
There have been alot of bad reviews about this game, and its all because of the camera angles. It is true, the camera angles do let this title down; but not much. From what i have played of the demo it is a very exciting and fast paced game. The dinosaurs in the game (space dino's when did that happen?) are really cool and seem to be e=very clever, although they really waste you if you get bitten.
Demo=Gr8
Full game= we'll see. But it will be good.
