4.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 14 Jan 2013
I got Dredd on Blu-Ray this afternoon, and got right down to watching it. Judge Dredd and the universe accompanying this scowling officer of the law are brilliantly realised, with excellent set pieces, costumes, casting and effects. The plot is simple but I believe that that is only working in the film's favour - this is because it is an ordinary day for Judge Dredd, not a super-villain plot like in the 1995 fiasco.

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern classic!, 8 Oct 2012
I played Metal Gear Solid 4 when I borrowed it from a friend some ears ago, and I never got round to buying my own copy until recently - I am pleased to say I enjoyed the game as much this time as last time, which is to say, an immense amount!

The game is as stealthy and slick as any other Metal Gear Solid title, but with vastly improved gameplay and a huge number more possibilities as to how you can approach a situation, with more freedom to go in guns blazing, and there are A LOT more guns in this title than any other.

The story twists and turns, bringing characters new and old, as it follows the final conclusion to the epic adventure that is the story of Solid… Read more
