Lore on Blu-ray – Hitler’s dead, but no-one is free like you’d expect.
World War II is over, and the time has come for a family living in SW Germany to be separated. Lore’s parents are high-level Nazis and fear their arrest is imminent, so they’re going to attempt to abscond rather than face arrest. They knew this day would come, but for Lore (Saskia Rosendahl, below) and [...]
Get Jack Reacher round on Blu-ray
I don’t read books, so prior to this film’s release, I had never heard of Jack Reacher before. And Tom Cruise usually makes a good fist of an action movie, so I figured it was worth a watch. Based on the 2005 novel “One Shot”, the film begins with a sniper shooting five random people. [...]
Star Trek Into Darkness… & Noise & Nonsense – cinema review
Star Trek: Into Darkness opens with a great action scene as Kirk (Chris Pine) and Bones (Karl Urban) are on the run from an indiginous tribe in a land that hasn’t even discovered electricity, while Spock (Zachary Quinto) is lowered into an active volcano to set off a device that’ll render the volcano inert. Unfortunately, [...]
Hal Hartley’s Amateur debuts on Blu-ray
As Amateur begins, Isabelle (Isabelle Huppert) is a nun, sat in a coffee shop, writing pornography on her laptop to earn a living, much to the annoyance of the cafe owner – not because of her choice of profession, but because she spends all day in there while drinking hardly any coffee. Meanwhile, Martin Donovan [...]
A dead end for Dead Island Riptide on Xbox 360
Standard Edition: Steelbook Edition: Zombie Bait Edition: Dead Island Riptide is a game that feels as mindless as the zombies in the game. Now, I never played the first game in this series, but I understand that your character managed to get to the safety of a military ship and that’s where you start off [...]

Let’s get down to it…
Starting Tuesday, May 28th in North America and Wednesday, May 29th in Europe, our latest PS2 Classics release on PlayStation Network lets you navigate the treacherous path home for that real live bunch from Coney, as The Warriors will be available to plaaaa-ay on PS3. Grab it from the PlayStation Store next week for $9.99 / £7.99.
As an extra treat for those of you in the NYC area – what better way to celebrate the game’s PSN arrival than watching the movie that started it all – which will be playing at the Landmark Sunshine Theatre all weekend as part of their longstanding Midnight screening series.
I don’t read books, so prior to this film’s release, I had never heard of Jack Reacher before. And Tom Cruise usually makes a good fist of an action movie, so I figured it was worth a watch.
Based on the 2005 novel “One Shot”, the film begins with a sniper shooting five random people. Detective Emerson (David Oyelowo) and District Attorney Rodin (Richard Jenkins) bring in the wrong man, a trained military sniper by the name of Barr (Joseph Sikora). We know they’ve brought in the wrong man because we’ve already seen that it was Jai Courtney (as bad guy Charlie) firing the bullets at the start. When asked to confess, Barr just instructs them to “GET JACK REACHER”, but why is he calling on this particular homicide investigator?
Today, Activision have made available the Call of Duty: Ghosts Tech Comparison video that was shown at yesterday’s Microsoft Xbox One press event. It compares the tech upgrades from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to Call of Duty: Ghosts.
Take a look at the video below and marvel at the new game engine:
Review Summary :
|Reviewer :||Dom Robinson|
|Review Date :|
|Item Name :||Star Trek Into Darkness|
|Item Description:||After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.|
Before is the unveiling video, showing both the new Kinect sensor as well as the new Xbox One controller, and forthcoming additions such as a personal homescreen, cinematic gaming, Live TV and Skype.
Personally, however, I don’t quite get it. It looks oversized and bulky and does a lot of things that modern internet TVs can do, such as Skype.
The question is – are Microsoft obsessing too much about whether the new machine should be an all-round entertainment hub, or should it still be about the games? Only time will tell.
