      great for anyone who enjoyed 4400 taken or heroes

      This is a great series for anyone that has enjoyed tv such as taken, the 4400 and heroes ect vastly under advertised when it was on tv it didnt get a prime time slot and was over looked by alot of people but this is a really good series. The introduction lets you meet kyle who literally wakes up in the forest covered in a jelly like substance although hes intelligent and can think he cant talk and has no experience of living its like he was a newborn this leaves you guessing what exactly is kyle lol. The cast is excellent and kyle himself is quite nice looking for the ladys, this series is 10 episodes log to start with each being approx 50 minutes long This is a heartwarming series thats also has some excellent funny moments to, with plenty of twist and turns to keep you guessing i cant wait to watch season two of this series Season one is avalible on amazon for £20.00 and id say its a bargain for this great series its rated a 12 and is 616 minutes long Its definatley one you will want to keep in your collection

        Excellent!

        Return of the king is the third instalment of the fantastic lord of the rings trilogy.It continues the story exactly where we left off in the two towers ,beginning with more of golems story we find frodo and sam being led into mordor buy golem and Aragorn and gandalf arrive at Isenguard. This third film in detail finishes off frodos story and the destruction of the ring with the same outstanding quality of the other 3 films, all the original cast are back again to finish this epic master piece with even a cameo from the director Peter Jackson who appears as a pirate that Aragorn and his army attack. The film is amazing enough to make you want to go out and buy it but another fantaastic thing you get with this box set is the extras,Peter Jackson but a massive amount oftime into these featuretes and they usually last longer than the film but are so worth it ,you can find out about Frodos last scene and how peter kept maing him do it over and over again because he couldnt bear for it to end, you also find out about how viggo mortesen cant bear to let his onscreen horse go and muchmuch more. This amazing box set is avalible on amazon for £6.98 upwards ,its rated a 12 and the actually fill just this part is 250 minutes long thats not including all the extras you get if you buy this editon

          Fantasic place to loose yourself

          World of warcraft or wow is the biggest online roleplaying game around,companies are coming close now to producing something better but not quite.It really is a massive community with approximatley 8 million players worldwide,it has numerous different realms and many people for all over the world on each realm.You can choose from lots of different realms and also choose a side to play on horde or alliance later in the game you will be fighting real other players you find on the world.I have deinatley made some life long friends on this game and it really is something different,however it also is very addictive to play some people do get lost in there charecters especially on roleplaying realms the other warning i would give is all ages play this game adults and children so parents letting there children play must be aware of the some of the language and behavior used in the game. Costing £8.99 a month i found it well worth the money the intial game can be picked up for around £10.00 always buy a new one as you will need a unused key in the game to unlock it, there are now 3 expansion packs avalible that enhance the game and make it bigger and so far i have encounterednothing that beats it,to get the best from this game you are best to join a guild (a grup of players in game) and visit all the dungeons and battles avalible have fun and remember to come up for air occasionally

          Fantastic ps2 game

          Star ocean is a excellent yet overlooked game for the ps2,its bright colourful and fun to play and best of all its massive.It tells of a youg boy on holiday with his parents and his friend and there planet gets attacked by evil aliens,he ends up escaping just but lands on a strange planet and has to survive and find his friends and family. the game play is excellent its quite involved with lots of fun elements but apart from the graphics which are excellent the best feature of this game is the workshops where you invent new items,each charecter is a specialist at making different things ie cooking bombs magic items armour the more they make the better skilled they become and the higher the skill the better the item ,it costs money to make things but thats easy enough to earn, and just the inventing side of this game is huge so can keep you busy for hours and hours at a time. The game has features of final fantasy but is more manga styled and with lots of mini games and side quests to keep you intrested it has tons of potential. The game is avalible on amazon at the moment for £9.00 which is well worth it, walk throughs are avalible for this massive game but becoming rarer,Star ocean is highly recomended for all roleplayers on this ps2

          Great movie

          If you havnt seen it the xmen trilogy is a series of superhero movies from marvel comics based on one of there best series,so far it has spawned 3 movies a cartoon series and the legenday comic range. The films are about a new generation of humans that have mutated and now have special powers some are good and some are bad and both are disliked buy normal people. What makes these movies great is the special effects and costume that make the charecters look unique and special making it belivable they are different. The trilogy of movies boasts a all star cast which loyally return for each movie,Hugh Jackman Patrick Stewart Ian mcgregor and Halle Berry are to name just a few. This is a action packed movie that both kids and adults alike will love,the plot is both exciting and easy to grasp and i personally have found the entire trilogy entertaining and enjoyable. Two of the films at least now have been on tv but if you missed them and want to buy the movies the entire box set is avalible on amazon starting at £6.96 singly the movies are about £4-5 each. Each of the emen series has been rated a 12 singly however for some reason the box set has been moved to a 15. Although a true classic now this is really worth having in your collection especially if you enjoy the marvel films like the hulk and spiderman

            tasty but hot

            These have been one of my favorite dinners for a long time,icelands hot spicy chicken wings offer a pack of approximatley 12 chicken wings covered in a spicy breadcrumb and the price in my local ice land tends to range from 1.99 to 2.99. Ive been buying these for about a year but latley have noticed they have revamped them and not just the packaging ,latley i have noticed the spicy ness of the chicken wings has been getting very spicy,i do love spicy food and paprika but as i sit here writing this review im eating a packet and there so hot they are almost unedible,i cant put it down to this pack as the last few packs have been very spicy also so i may have to reconsider buying them as tasty as they are. On the plus side they are very quick to cook and can make a great meal with noodles rice or even some fresh rolls ,just be carful if you have a sensitive mouth. Incidently they do a different flavour in the same range of southern fried, but sadly its not as exciting to my taste buds, to sum up a tasty treat just mind your mouth on them

              Great new game just remember theres a monthly fee

              Brand new from warhammer comes there first roleplaying game online,i brought it the day after release for £30.00 from my local game . You get a 2 disc game pack with a small instruction book and a special key to log you in.Installation was not too bad unfortunatley i had to do it 3 times as i forgot i didnthave the latest direct x package but i did get there and full installation took me about 5 hours on my slow laptop 1 hour for the discs and 4 four the patches. Its kind of like graphics of lotr online but better and the gameplay is similar to wow im a big wow fan and im really enjoying this game as well as pve pvp and organised city raids which where great fun but unorganised in wow it offers also a nice feature of public quest which you can just turn up and participate in for rewards which i have so far really enjoyed,its brand new so there are a few glyches and also there are less jobs to do atm but im sure that will improve. Although unable to beat the art and impact of wow this game sure has wow on the run and offeres a great change for seasoned wow players theres a monthly fee but most new boxes have your first month included ,this game is defintley worth a go,incidently i found it avalibleonamazon for £26.99 if you can wait for it to be posted,im not sure if this version includes the free month though. (wow= world of warcraft

                Not bad for a one off watch but not a keeper

                Scream is essentially a teenage horror flick,Wes Craven directs with Neve Campbell starring as sydney,is basicly tells the story of a girl who is pursued by a masked murder and her attempts to escape,it has a great cast of Courtny Cox Drew Barrymore and David Arquette aswell to join in the fun. Neve is quite young in this original and it shows a little,but nether the less the film isnt that bad.Its very capable of making you jump if you havnt seen it before and it also is quite gory,it works really on anticipation you know hes going to get his victim its just a matter of when. Unfortunatley this was the type off film that was good to watch a first time but repeats or sequals just are not the same,Rose Mcgowan also stars in this and is probably one of the best actresses in this film i think also shes so young this could possibly be her first film,this is a great flick for a girls night in but it just doest have the depth for a film you want to add to a permenant collection. Its rated a 18 and is avalible for the great price of £2.98 on amazon,at 106 minutes long thats pretty good really

                  great tv series long may it continue

                  This is one of the best tv shows ive seen in a long time, about a logical forensic scientist Dr Brennan (Emily deschanel) who begins to work with a fbi agent Seeley booth(David Boreanaz) to help him solve murders,without approx 23 episodes in the series booth and brenan with the help of there 3 lab assistants solve a range of obscure murders which range from being touching to really gross and ucky,what definatley keeps you watching this series is the question of whether seeley and brenan will ever get together there touching relationship is the core of the whole show. The subject matter is of course dead bodies which are made to look extremley realistic so this series isnt for everyone if they can make you go ewhhh and yuk they definatley will but if your like me and enjoy this this series could be for you. With Bones just starting its 4th series and long may it continue each series gets better and better with long term storys developing in the cast Series 1 is approximatley 946 minutes long there are numerous different featurettes on the boxset which are also very good,the series is rated a 15 and you can pick up a box set on amazon for around £20.00

                  Great tv series that keeps you watching

                  Without a trace is my favorite tv series its thrilling and action packed and you never know how it is going to end.You can now buy this as a box set and there are at least 5 series with the original cast returning for each one. Each series contains around 24 episodes each are different stories centred around people who have vanished and the investigating fbi team that try and find them.Sometimes they are sucessful and find them sometimes they find the person dead and sometimes they never know,thats whats great about this you never know how the story will end. At approx 50 minutes per episode this series keeps you busy,it gives you a small insight into the agents personal lives to see what makes them tick and sometimes the cases they work on involve them as well. Its now heading towards series six which proves how strong this series really is and has the scope to keep creating different senarios to keep us all intrested. Prices range from £45.00 new down to £16.00 second hand as it is a popular series,its rated a 15 as you never know what kind of trouble the victim was into before they went missing. I highly recommend this series,its informative and compelling to watch and has a fantasic cast that are truly belivable 10 out of 10 for this box set

                  Great classic movie with a fantastic cast

                  A fish called wanda is one of those great all time classics that you can watch again and again and still find funny. It was years ago when i first saw this film ,John clease who plays our hero was alot more popular then as more people remebered him from faulty towers the same could be said of Jamie lee curtis accept she was more remebered for the films she had done. What makes this film special is the wit of the charecters everyone thinks they are outdoing everyone else and what you get is a multitude of comical mishaps. Micheal palin and Kevin Kline also contribute to this great comedy with one of the most famous scenes being Kevin eating micheal palins pet fish. I think the clincher that makes me love this film the most is the lovely john Cleases charecter the only way to describe it is pompus but lovable,so depressed in his awful life he finds it unbelivable that anyone else could love him ,ultimatley though this turns him into a unexpected hero,if you are one of the few people that hasnt seen this great film go and get a copy now it will have you laughing and crying at the same time,incidently they did make a sequal called fierce creatures but unfortunatley this flopped,in a recent interview Clease said you cant sucessfully recreate a masterpiece and he was correct

                    Good program if your willing to put in time to learn to use it

                    Wanting to move in to the digital art sector ,everything i was reading about was saying the software program i must have was Poser. According to the magazines it was a program that assisted you in creating faces and bodys of humans and making them look 3d and life like,well im quite a novice so i did wonder if using this program was going to be to tough for me to use ,i would call myself computer literate and deicde i would have a go. I brought my copy of poser 6 off Amazon uk it was £120.00 so i had to use my birthday money to cover it ,a little worried at what i had paid i hoped i was going to be able to use it ok. It took over a week to arrive bit when it did i was really pleased,the installation info was straight forward and on my laptop it took just over 1 hour to install but my laptop is quite old so this is probably the maximum. Whe the first page came up it was a little scary it had lots of tabs for Face ,cloth ect and lots of 3d skeletons to play with ,after a 10 minute play with all the buttons i was able to create my own ace on my dummy and change the view i looked at it from. I decided i needed a tutorial so i took the poser tutorial on the sotware,i learnt how to move my charecter and how to render it,(put all the adjustments onto my dummy),i still have a awful lot to learn to get faces looking real and i need to learn how to grow hair on my dummy but on the whole im really pleased with what this program does even though i wont be using it for animation,i do think even though £120.00 is lower than the rrp it was alot for this product but then again i guess all software is becoming expensive.I would recomend this to people who have a high intrest in art or digital art,you can buy alot of books to help you use this program and give you ideas and when you see what this program is capable of you really wont be disapointed

                    Good adventure movie

                    Jurassic park 3 is the third installment in the jurassic park series ,this film is a bout a boy and his uncle who goadventuring a little to near the jurrasic park island,the get swept off corse and end up stranded on the island.Meanwhile his mother and father attempt to recruit the original palentologist from the first movie to take them to the island to look for there son,they manage to get him there under false pretenses thats when the fun starts ,they have to battle through a multitude of dinosaurs to try and find there missing son. This movie is just as good story wise as the first ,its action packed and full of danger with fabulous special effects and cgi but unfortunatley it falls down on the casting,i have always had trouble beliving tia leonis acting and have the same problemin this movie ,most of the cast do a great job but i have a really hard time with her acting,its a shame as the main part of this film is better than the second film.Its a good original plot and well thought out ,just needs a little fine tunning in some places ,great film for all ages though. Its rated a PG and is 93 minutes long

                      Excellent quality sequal

                      Hellboy 2 is the sequal to the first installment of hellboy,following where we leftoff with the first movie hellboy and Liz are now offically a couple and are continuing to fight evil ,they come across some evil elves in this film that plan to release a indestructable army on the humans as revenge for old deeds hellboy and Liz must stop the evil elves before humankind made extinct. This film is just as good as the first with tons of special effects and cgi,its a actionpacked adventure and any one who like the first film is going to love this second one.Its very funny and witty and theres lots more monsters in this installment for hellboy to blow up too. As usual the soundtrack is fantastic,the costumes and design of the whole film are well thought out and detailed the only let down is the little american chap who helped out hellboy in the first film isnt in this one and the excuse is a little lame ,apart from that this film is fantastic and highly recommended to all fans.

                        i wish they would make more!

                        Angel is the follow on series from buffy the vampire slayer,if you havent seen buffy yet angel is a vampire with a soul and so a good vampire,hes seeking atonement for the bad things he has done in the past so now he fights evil demons and vampires in L.a.He has a side kick team of the beautiful cordelia who is a little bit dizzy and thebrilliant wesley who is both intelligent and english!In this series you meet a range of evil foes and some new friends and angel discovers something important about his future. I love angel namely because of the gorgeus david b in it but also wesley and cordelias charecters,each episdode is a different story and theres loads of evil demons to enjoy,occasionly some of the buffy crew come over which is great for buffy fans as well,this is a great cult series that was very popular and is still a classic so if you enjoy something out of the ordinary give angel a go its very addictive and theres 6 series to get through Its classified 18 surprisingly and is 917 minutes for series 1 i think there is about 22 episodes in total you also get extras which are good on the dvd as well.£9.95 on amazon uk
