3.0 out of 5 stars The auto tune on Emmas voice is rediculous., 21 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good film that follows the animated version very closely. The acting and singing throughout is top notch... Apart from Emma Watson being brutally auto tuned to the point it stops sounding like her voice. To the point it sounds like the 'Cher effect' from 'Believe'. Why pick an actress and then not stand by your convictions? Belle doesn't need to be pitch perfect. Yes, that single mistake has cost the film two stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful Eddie Fisher kills it., 21 Jan. 2017
Dreadful, dreadful film. Eddie Fisher kills this with every moment he spends on screen. Debbie Reynolds is her usual delightful self but she not only conceded top billing to him, his awful acting and inability to mime to his own voice overshadows her bright spark.
No wonder his big screen outings were restricted to this and a few Elizabeth Taylor films, while they were a couple.
Dreadful... Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film about behind the scenes at a sports franchise., 24 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Draft Day (Amazon Video)
I love this film. I am a fan of American football but seeing as how it's about draft day which takes place in the off season I wasn't expecting any football, unlike other knuckle draggers who have posted pointless reviews. It's about behind the scenes, wheeling and dealing for the good of their franchise. Yes, maybe the love story was superfluous, but it doesn't detract.
Give it a go!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bay City felt real to me., 21 April 2016
Although it certainly has its limitations, mainly governed by the story and it's subsequent timeline, this game is fantastic.
What really brings everything to life for me is the city itself. Driving/walking around, viewing the different areas and neighbourhoods, Bay City actually feels real. I've searched for a word to fully describe it and the one that conveys it best is 'organic'. You actually feel like the city has grown over a long period of time into what it has become. I love GTA 5 and the city but I never had that feeling that Los Santos had grown over a long period of time. It felt like it had been created instantly. Which of course it had.
The gameplay and storyline, a few minor annoyances aside, was compelling. I loved it.
Yes, this is a different review but others have covered the intricacies of the game itself. I just wanted to tell you what brought this all to life for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Be open minded and don't compare. It's a great re-telling., 4 Jun. 2014
If you love the original, as I do, then don't look on this film as a remake. You will be disappointed. It's a re-imagining of the story.
The director of the original 1978 film, John Carpenter, told Rob Zombie to make the film his own. That's exactly what he did.
This film explores more of Michael Myers' psyche and reasoning than the original did . The first half hour or so of the film chronicles the decent of the young Michael into Madness from the boys point of view and then slowly turns to that of Dr. Loomis, mirroring Michaels own journey into an increasingly catatonic state. This part of the film is both disturbing and unnerving whilst also remaining uncomfortably compelling.
Carpenter concentrated on building tension and atmosphere through the brilliant use of; mystery, brief subtle 'shape' appearances and more thoughtful, albeit still highly graphic, gore scenes.
Zombie chose to be more in your face.

My advice, get hold of a copy and watch it as a new film, exactly how you are meant to see it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Campaign is epic. Multiplayer... Oh dear!, 22 Mar. 2013
The campaign is great. Much like previous GOW's. A few changes to the controls which are actually better imo.
Not going to go on about it. Multiplayer
Multiplayer on the other hand is awful. What have you done Epic?
No execution or warzone.
Only two guns; your choice of starting weapon (gnasher, lancer, retro, hammer or a couple of others) & a pistol.
Free for all is just like Gotham City Imposters. So aimed at 10 year olds who haven't had their Ritalin.
TDM is also aimed at the same target audience but for those 10 year olds without Ritalin who have friends.

I didn't think they could do worse than the absolute abomination that was GOW 2 but give them a prize, they've achieved that remarkable feat.

My scoring:
Campaign: ★★★★★
Multiplayer: NO STARS
Overall: ★★

3.0 out of 5 stars Not in the original packaging!, 24 Oct. 2012
The price was amazing, the pillow itself is great and the delivery was surprisingly quick.
On the downside, I was surprised and disappointed that it was delivered in ordinary plastic packaging and not in the original pillow bag as is shown in the picture. That information may well be in the description but I wasn't able to find it.
I can only give 3★ rather than 5 purely for that reason.

GameOn Compatible Remote Control (PS3)
GameOn Compatible Remote Control (PS3)

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, cheerful & does the job... ツ, 13 May 2012
I purchased this control because I was sick of using the game controller while viewing dvds and blu-rays.
I decided to purchase this model purely on price.
It was delivered swiftly and was well packaged.

On opening, I was slightly disappointed with the feel of it. It reminded me of one of those child's fake mobile phones that is full of sweets that you can find in a newsagents. But I reminded myself that I really hadn't paid a lot and shouldn't expect much more.

It doesn't have a button to actually turn the console on but everything else works fine. It does what it is supposed to.

If you are looking for a cheap control, look no further... ツ
