I watched this last night on a friends recommendation. Normally I'm very hard to shock, but this film seemed to grab me in a very personal place and I spent quite a bit of the film wanting to turn it off. Very glad I didn't though!

Personally, it was the harrassment from the youths from the beginning to middle of the film that sucked me in, I'm sure most of us have been in a similar situation to the couple at one point or other and the film capitalises on this deep-set fear (and hatred) the public have of these groups of wankers that are far too common these days. After the middle, it goes a bit to the extreme side but it escalates and transitions so well it's almost believable… Read more
Darksiders (PS3) by THQ
As has been mentioned before, and will be mentioned again, this game brings absolutely nothing new to the world of action RPGs. In fact, it rather shamelessly and blatantly steals a lot from existing games in the genre(especially our Pointy-eared green-capped friend).

It all looks pretty much the same, does the same tricks and even get obtained in a strikingly similar fashion.

I've been a huge fan of recent (and all) Doctor Who but this series just.........lacked. There were a few good episodes, usually written by Stephen Moffat or Russel Davis but on the whole it just never clicked the way the other "new who" did. Cathrine Tate is fantastically irritating, although I can't help feel that's because her "comedy" series has left an ashen taint in my mouth. After the last series finale (with the master) I did get an uncofortable feeling that Doctor Who had reached it's apex, and this series proves it. Sure there's a couple of good episodes here, but none better than anything previously done on the show. Nothing new here. Davros was massively disappointing too, he… Read more
