  1.  A fitting ending to an incredible trilogy.

    Posted: 

    SPOILER FREE

    Let me first start off in reference to my rating, I would rate this film around 4 and a half stars out of 5, but that wasn't an option. Now let me tell you why I've given it this rating. Christopher Nolan gives us the last chapter to the Dark Knight film series which had been one of the most anticipated film releases I had ever seen. The acting is superb. Christian Bale pulls off his best performance as Bruce Wayne/Batman of the whole trilogy in a deeply dramatic role this time around. Tom Hardy plays the chaotic Bane who sets out to destroy Gotham City and he does as good as job as you could hope for. The real surprise of the film was Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Him being one of my favorite actors, I expected nothing less than amazing from him and that's what we got as he starred as Officer John Blake and in the end of the film, turns out to have a much bigger part than we all anticipated. I'll be honest, the ending is a tiny bit cheesy but really unpredictable at times.

    To sum up the entire film series, in my opinion, the Dark Knight Rises is better than Batman Begins but not as good as the Dark Knight. Be it whether because of the incredible acting of Heath Ledger as the joker in TDK that stole the show or the really chaotic, violent moments in the film that just made it more a little more interesting and hard to predict what was going to happen next. There'a also the problem that maybe we all set our expectations way too high with The Dark Knight Rises, as they were not as high in anticipation for the Dark Knight. Nevertheless, this film is a dramatic ending to the best film trilogy I have ever seen. Period. Thank you Christopher Nolan for these amazing movies.

  2.  Brilliant new comedy series.

    Posted: 

    From the teaser trailer I seen a couple of months ago I knew I was going to start watching this show because it looked pretty funny and it definitely lived up to my expectations and more. The main characters consist of Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Winston and Cece with some other guest characters occurring along the way. Each character is funny in their own way; Jess is the quirky school teacher, Nick is just down right funny, Schmidt is the douche, Winston is also quite funny and Cece is Jess' friend who is a model and starts living in the apartment with them a few episodes into the series.

    The series is a real breath of fresh air, and I have seen the entire first series online already so I know how good each episode was and the quality is consistently great throughout. I'm delighted to hear this show is being renewed for a second season and I can't wait for it. This TV show is a light heart comedy and is a good watch for anyone.

  3.  A very unique shooter.

    Posted: 

    After just completing the campaign for this game today, I can say that I thought it was brilliant. The X-Ray camera that is shown sometimes when an enemy is hit in the head, chest, or other part of the body is very brutal, and that's why I love it. The campaign I warn some, is in my opinion, quite short. Nevertheless, it's very enjoyable. I also played a bit of multiplayer co-op where there is a game mode 'Kill Tally' where you and a partner team up and go through wave after wave to get as many kills as possible which is a lot of fun, and very competitive.

    Overall this a very very good shooter. It's not your average shooting game, it's beyond that, and something very unique. If you somewhat regard yourself as a sniping fan in games, you have to try this game. I recommend it for any shooter fan.

  4.  Fantastic!

    Before seeing this film you may think you have to know something about baseball or even have an interest in the sport, but that is not the case. I personally have no interest in baseball, but I know a really good film when I see one and this is one. Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill are brilliant in this and fully deserved their Oscar nominations. Whether you like baseball, sport in general,or simply a good entertaining watch, you have to see this movie. Sensational!

  5.  Very entertaining comedy.

    Posted: 

    Before I seen this movie I wondered whether it would be somewhat of a tearjerker, or a good comedy, and in a way, it was both. There are some sad moments in this film and we see Adam (Gordon-Levitt) begin to realize what things are really important in life.

    The cast are really good, especially Seth Rogen who never fails to make me laugh. Anna Kendrick is Adam's quite awkward therapist and this is the second film I've seen Kendrick in (Up in the Air) where I find her instantly likable. The film has it's funny parts, Kyle and Adam (Rogen and Gordon-Levitt) have great chemistry as two best friends and the comedy seems really really natural.

    Overall this film is really entertaining, i'd recommend it to anyone.

  6.  An emotional, brilliant film.

    Posted: 

    This is a very emotional film with some real tear jerking moments along the way. Clint Eastwood as usual is amazing but the real star is Hilary Swank. She does her role perfectly and I do not want to create any spoilers, but I will say that the condition she is in near the end of the film, she does a great job of making sure it is very believable, and Hilary deserves her Oscar for Best Actress, 100%.

    I would recommend this film to anyone, it's brilliant. Definitely a must see!

  7.  "I am on a drug, it's called 'Charlie Sheen'.

    Posted: 

    What a fantastic series. I've just started to watch the beginning of the 9th season with Ashton Kutcher and I unfortunately cannot say I've laughed hard once since the season has started. Ashton is good in his films but Charlie Sheen had his own character and unique style that could not be replaced.

    Now back to the review. Two and a Half Men has been on our TV's for 8 years now and produced 8 seasons, all of which have been hilarious. My favorite seasons are probably the 1st, 2nd, 6th and 8th one too, actually. It was a shame when it ended because the story with Charlie and Rose was just starting to get interesting, and in the new season it was a terrible way to write Charlie out - getting hit by a train.

    If you've never seen Two and a Half Men and are wondering if it is as good as I say it is, don't watch the new episodes. Watch these 8 spectacular seasons for a nice price of in my currency, 62.49 euro. The seasons used to be about 15-20 euro each so this is a brilliant offer. If you are a fan of the series and are wondering if this is worth it, it is beyond worth it.

    Great series, great price, great actors and great comedy. Long live Two and a Half Men Season 1-8, and long live Charlie Harper.

    Winning!

  8.  Tops them all.

    If you haven't seen this film, it's time you should. As a big fan of the Harry Potter series, the film series really ended with a huge surprise. I loved the ending of the film, and the acting performances in the film are spectacular and such a step up from the previous films in the series.

    I can't wait to see this film again once it's released and see it in Blu Ray, I recommend this film to everyone, must see!

  9.  Reach-ing out for the next HALO.

    Posted: 

    Apart from my vivid memory of playing Halo: Combat Evolved on the old Xbox, I don't know that much about Halo. What I do know, is a good game. And this is it.

    Halo: Reach has a stunning campaign with great visuals, sounds, and a good storyline also. The main part of the game is its multiplayer like any game, and yes the multiplayer is amazing. Love the Big Team Battle game mode where there are vehicles that can be controlled, also love the sniping game mode which adds even more value to the cost.

    Halo: Reach has made me a huge fan of the franchise now, and come November 15th, I can't wait to relive history and play Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, which was a great idea to update the game and re-release it. If you're a fan of Halo, or just a fan of shooters, this is well worth the low price it is now.

    Highly recommended.

  10.  Can you say, underrated?

    Posted: 

    I can't understand how some people say that this game isn't good. The campaign is solid enough, the online is AMAZING fun and looks fantastic, what else is there people?

    This game's campaign would be fairly decent when compared to the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 campaign which was average, and I compared the multiplayer with Battlefield: Bad Company 2 because they're both made by DICE. The multiplayer is just down right brilliant. Love the guns and the sound effects are top notch.

    My only complaint is that there isn't enough people playing this game online, and I don't know why because it's a fun filled adventure. Highly recommended.
