5.0 out of 5 stars Why no ratings?, 15 Sept. 2012
For the people stating Fox tv network made the wrong decision in cancelling this amazing show-if no on watches what can they do?
It is crazy to think that a show that is as as funny as frasier or friends didn't get to continue but Fox did try measures to get people to watch-i'm sure they started a site where people pledged they would watch ect,but ultimately they didn't get the viewing figures they needed.
Anyway ignore that sad fact and concentrate on enjoying the most enjoyable comedy that is arrested development(prob best to start with season 1 though to get the nuances of each character).5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars WEST COAST LEGENDARY, 23 Sept. 2011
This isn't a full length album but all the songs here are good,whereas on most albums you will only get a few songs you like.G-funk was the sound at the time and the big single off this "Real compton city g's" is as good as any song as an example of the best sound of that style.
The main focus of this album is Dr.Dre and Snoop Dogg get pounded on in response to comments they made toward Eazy.
This was a huge beef back in the day and this was a huge album for Eazy.He came back hard with top quality beats and lyrics.The main song was a huge hit also back then,and even listening to it now it remains a classic.Of course it wouldnt be an Eazy -E album without a sex song and "gimmie that nutt"is as filthy as it gets lol.
Another reviewer called this overated i mean listening to it these days it may not have the same impact it had when it first came out but i wont accept that the beats are not good.It matches up to anything around at the time,and as i keep saying real compton city g's(it has a different name on this lol) is a legendary song that any west coast or g-funk fan has to love.
The legend lives on in his music forever.

3.0 out of 5 stars an average batlle for l.a., 21 July 2011
Average.I wanted to like this movie but it didn't excite me.I wont outright buy a film if i dont like the actors in it,but i took a chance here-i wanted to see a modern action sci-fi film.
The film has Aaron Eckhart leading a squad on a rescue mission whilst aliens have invaded the city of the title.
The film has lots of shaky camera fast cuts at times.To me this is just to daze your senses,to confuse you from the fact the film is nothing special-it certainly didn't convey a sense i was there with the squad if that was the intention.It just made me want to look away.
The aliens themselves dont look that good-you never really get to see a close up of them,the design of them looked appealing but i never got to see a proper look of them and they were just a robotic army with no personality.
The special effects were impressive enough,but there was nothing that made me think"that was cool".
The main actor did a good job,however the scene to show his loyalty to men formerly under his command i felt was weak,and while he was believable in the role he is not an action star and doesnt stir anything in me to cheer for him.
I'll stick to my old 80's and 90's action films and the hero's of old.I dont like this modern era of action films and im 32.


Medal of Honor (PS3)
Medal of Honor (PS3)

3.0 out of 5 stars no purple heart here, 7 July 2011
This review is from: Medal of Honor (PS3) (DVD-ROM)
Electronic Arts franchise first person shooter has been brought into modern warfare territory,set in Afghanistan.
Graphics wise this is nothing special-yes theres not a lot you can do with small villages or mountains as a setting but there is no polishing here they just have the feel of averageness(although some in game cut scenes in aircraft were lovely).
Gamplay-the movement i didn't like at first but a few missions in i got used to it and it plays fine,however the campaign is very short-10missions and 2 of those are vechile/helicopter based,so basically 8 short 30min levels which on hard mode was embarrassingly easy.I died once every few levels and that wasn't due to the skill of the a.i just my inexperience with the layout of the level or really strange would be an instant death-presumably from a grenade???but i could not see any indicator!2 or 3 times a level when a grenade was incoming there is a thin red arrow indicating what direction it is landing but in the heat of the battle i must have missed it(i am assuming it was a grenade killing me lol).Speaking of battles the firefights themselves again nothing special,there was 2 that i remember were a tad exciting but thats it-i was just ploughing through never with the sense i was in danger or could be beat(on hard mode).
Multiplayer was fun,i remember enjoying it when it came out-and i thought the graphics there were better also(a different company handled that portion for them).
E.A wanted this to challenge the elite shooters-so you have to compare this to modern warfare or black ops-and it just doesn't in my opinion.It's not as exciting,doesn't have as good graphics and doesn't have the same production values-just a quick example is the story in medal of honor has a colonel and general arguing over troop deployment-it was boring,never stirred my interest.Compare it with black ops interrogation scenes between levels--black ops has intensity-A-list hollywood actors(i know this isnt a must for convincing storyline but you cant deny the difference between these games)medal of honor is almost laughable in that respect yet EA have tons of cash to plough into games.
Reviewing it up to date now though,at the price it is and you love a fps,you cant go wrong-just dont expect anything great.

5.0 out of 5 stars F.E.A.R Alma again!, 25 Jun. 2011
This review is from: F.E.A.R. 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
When i heard it was not the original creators of the first two games making F.3.A.R i was very dissapointed and did not expect much from this titles developers day1 studios.They previously handled console ports of the first game but thats it-no ps3 first person shooter history.
They have exceeded in delivering the best game of 2011 for me.
The graphics are nothing special but the gameplay is as solid as the best shooters like killzone3 or crysis2.Your character moves and controls well,gunfights are exciting and they have captured the sinister atmosphere of this franchise perfectly.
Multiplayer provides some fun modes-a call of duty zombies style called contractions where you must survive waves of enemies in a group of up to 4,Soulking is a deathmatch style game with a twist-you need to possess bodies to fight with,and a very original one where you are running head on into enemies while a fog of death creeps up behind you!(again up to a group of 4).
The publisher WB games have a lot of money to throw around according to an article i read last year and they use some of it here by having horror icon director John Carpenter direct live action sequences for cut scenes.I'm not sure it was necessary or that it works that well but i guess it is fresh.
My only other gripe is if you are skilled at shooters,playing on hard mode i didnt find it that challenging,but thats a personal thing and i dont find many shooters do provide a challenge(plus there is a harder difficulty to unlock so i think it addresses that).
If you are a first person shooter fan,a thrills fan or a f.e.a.r fan i recommend this game to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic, 5 Nov. 2010
This review is from: South Central Madness (Audio CD)
this really is a must own album if you like gangsta rap-lots of nwa and funk samples,this is the type of rap you will never get again.scc have great flows and are pioneers of west coast rap-this is a dream album-be sure to check out the two main guys-havoc and prodeje-they have many joint albums too-love this album and the cartel-still going and this album was done in 1990!
