2.0 out of 5 stars Two different plots smashed together makes a disappointing movie, February 15, 2013
This review is from: Looper (Amazon Instant Video)
This movie had promise, but ended up being a strange, mashed-together film that felt like two different movie scripts rammed together incoherently. The film starts out as a time-travel, sci-fi flick, slowly building it's premise, and then...bang: a whole new plot about a demonic child who explodes people begins almost out of thin air.

My friends and I looked at each other when this second plot began with looks of "what the....?" The entire "child as deranged killer" thing just didn't fit the premise of the first half of the film and was somewhat distasteful. I honestly think the writers had written two different versions of the film, and then rammed them together. This film doesn't know if it wants to be a sci-fi film or a horror film, and in trying to be both, it fails.

5.0 out of 5 stars This game is classic greatness!!, October 24, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
XCom: Enemy Unknown for PS3 is greatness, produced by a great studio that genuinely cares about giving you a great experience. Firaxis nailed it. Fans of the original XCOM from 1994 (also called UFO: Enemy Unknown in other countries) will instantly recognize all the great things they loved about the original in this release. Terrifying battles against unknown alien forces in neighborhoods, wilderness areas, cities, alien ships, and bases. Strategic management of your base, researching alien technology, building new weapons. The desperate attempt to keep your soldiers alive so they can level up and become much better at what they do. The heartbreaking permanent deaths of the soldiers you've come to care about. This game will also be easily accessible for new players who have not played the old Xcom games. The tutorial is very easy to follow and walks you through the various elements thoroughly before leaving you to manage XCom yourself. And one of the best parts: you can actually lose the game. Countries that fund your operation can withdraw their support, making harder and harder to develop new research and technology until you can't keep up with the alien invasion. But even if you lose, the game is a blast to play with high replayability, so anyone should have the ability to replay and win. The war on extraterrestrials has begun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional, beautiful, amazing....a truly unique experience!!, September 30, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Journey is, without a doubt, the most beautiful and uniquely moving experience I have played. Journey is more than a cool video game. It is an EXPERIENCE! It is a true work of art. Trust me, there is nothing else out there right now that is like Journey. The other two main games in the package, Flow and Flower, are also interesting and unique, but Journey is in a class all it's own. Journey tells a complete story with no dialogue. The story is told through your own experience, and cryptic murals and glyphs that tell the story visually. Along the way you will probably encounter another stranger or two on their journey, as the game seemlessly drops other players into your game world if you are online when you play the game. Each time you play through the game is unique. The story leaves room for your own unique story to be projected into the game. The journey is about you, your life, your joys, your sorrows, your experience.

The disc also contains a "making of" documentary on Journey, in which Genova Chen of thatgamecompany explains how he researched myth, symbolism, the hero's quest, and even universal dream imagery when designing the concept for the game.

Journey is beautiful, mesmerizing, and moving! You can't miss out on this one. There is simply nothing comparable to this in the video game industry.

5.0 out of 5 stars My first Gran Tursimo game!, January 3, 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I don't usually write reviews for games, but I couldn't resist after reading some of the negative reviews for Gran Turismo 5. This is my first Gran Turismo game, and I am completely blown away by it! This game is very special, and I can honestly say it is one of the few games that make the PS3 so much better than its competitors. The graphics are absolutely stunning and probably the most realistic I have ever seen in a game. I don't think any PC game would even look better than this. The career options are very deep and the premium cars are amazing. I don't even own any other driving games, but this game was too good not to own. Very deep modes, stunning graphics, and very realistic, simulation-style gameplay. If you own a PS3, get this game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best album in 18 years!, March 3, 2009
This review is from: No Line On The Horizon (Audio CD)
This album crafts lyrically and musically complex themes into a dense, spectacular, tightly cohesive piece of art. This is certainly the best U2 album since 1991's Achtung Baby. Don't believe the detractors until you have heard this album for yourself. This time around, the songs are very complex, experimental, yet cohesive and genuinely U2. The album is much more dense and interesting than 2004's How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb and 2000's All That You Can't Leave Behind. This is a real piece of art all the way through. Get on Your Boots is actually the worst song on the album. The rest of the album is very, very good. The boys are back.
