Avengers: Age of Ultron Sneak Peek (2015) – New Avengers Movie HD

age-of-ultronAvengers Age of Ultron is the sequel to 2012′s Avengers Assemble, often referred to as Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, just in case anyone might confuse them with the camp performances from Patrick Macnee and Emma Rigg from the ’60s.

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and it is up to The Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans…

There’s now a new clip online, and most of it is based around all of the other Avengers trying to lift Thor’s hammer, but it’s as predictable as can be – eg. Iron Man tries his magic powers, the cocky, hip black guy chips in the word “represent” when trying to get someone to move their arse, and so on. Not massively impressed with that.

The film stars Scarlett Johansson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, James Spader, Chris Evans, Elizabeth Olsen, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L Jackson, Hayley Atwell, Paul Bettany, Andy Serkis, Stellan Skarsgård, Stan Lee, Don Cheadle, Thomas Kretschmann and Lou Ferrigno as the voice of the Hulk!

Avengers Age of Ultron is written and directed by Joss Whedon and is out on May 1st 2015, and it looks from the trailer like he’s changed the widescreen aspect ratio from 1.85:1 to 2.35:1 since the last film. Obviously, this one will be in 3D again, but will it be shot in 3D, or like Avengers Assemble, will it be filmed in 2D and have the 3D all be done in post-production?

Lords of the Fallen on PC – The DVDfever Review

lords-of-the-fallen-featured

lords-of-the-fallen

Lords of the Fallen comes from developers CI Games who aren’t a particularly big well known company and neither are Deck 13 for that matter, between them their most well known titles have been Alien Rage and the Sniper Ghost Warrior games (CI Games) and Jack Keane 1 & 2 (Deck 13). Earlier this year Enemy Front was released by CI and they just didn’t quite hit the mark with it getting average reviews and feedback from players, Jack Keane 1 & 2 seems to be loved by some and hated by others, it is an adventure game though so that could be the reasoning behind this.

CI also have a bit of bad luck with their games in them being buggy upon release, Sniper Ghost Warrior for example was slated for the bugs and closed off areas,

The London Film Festival 2014 Part 1: Mainstream, by Helen M Jerome

mr-turner-featured
The London Film Festival 2014The London Film Festival 2014 has come and gone, and once again, Helen M Jerome has been watching many a movie, and now brings you the first of three parts of her look back at the festival, starting with the more mainstream offerings.

What a tremendously diverse 58th London Film Festival we’ve just been treated to. Okay, so maybe 2014 didn’t have the massive movies like last year’s Gravity and Twelve Years A Slave. And it wasn’t bookended by a pair of Tom Hanks’ vehicles. Yet it had breadth and depth all over; you just had to look a bit further to find it, in dynamic debuts, in dark dramas, even in off-the-wall comedies.

When you consider that some of the films at last year’s festival are only just being released, like Pawel Pawlikowski’s Ida, then you begin to appreciate how far ahead of the game you can get by devouring the festival fare on offer. So without further ado, let’s get stuck in.

Intruders – She Was Provisional & And Here… You Must Listen – Series 1 Episodes 1 & 2 – The DVDfever Review

intruders1a-featured

intruders

Intruders episode 1, She Was Provisional, begins in 1990, in Barstow, California, with a young girl called Donna (Katherine Evans) being woken up in the middle of the night by some unmasked men claiming they’re there to return to her a secret which she gave to them some years ago, apparently due to her asking, and they say they’re there to “shepherd her”. She doesn’t seem to recognise them as she vomits in utter shock. While she has a mini-breakdown in the corner of her room, rocking back and forth, muttering in Arabic, the men leave her a return flight ticket to Seattle…

UK Top 100 Music chart summary & my views w/e November 1st 2014

November 1st 2014Staying at No.1, in the UK Top 100 Music Chart w/e November 1st 2014, is Meghan Trainor with All About That Bass. Please, someone, tell me – this ‘song’ is a joke, yes?

There are two Top 10 new entries: Waze & Odyssey vs. R. Kelly at No.3 Bump & Grind 2014, as if we really needed a follow-up(!), and then at No.9, 1 Fuse ODG feat. Angel with T.I.N.A.

And there’s a re-entry at No.40 for Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne with Rather Be, thanks to it being featured in a TV advert, the product of which I’ve completely forgotten… but who cares about the product. The tune is top!

Thankfully, the BBC’s self-congratulatory back-slipping “God Only Knows” shite drops from No.38 to No.60.

You can hear the Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne track mentioned below here:

In The Forest of the Night – Doctor Who: Series 8 Episode 10 – The DVDfever Review

doctorwho-8j-featured

in-the-forest-of-the-night

In The Forest of the Night begins with a young girl telling the Doctor that she needs his help. He’s more concerned about the fact he and the TARDIS should be in London, rather than in a forest.

However, not only does she know, or possibly *think* she was sent by Clara to find him, but… they ARE in London.

Yes, overnight, the entire world has become covered in a forest. “It’s a brand new forest. Like the New Forest, but even newer.” No-one knows where it’s come from, but overnight it’s just appeared. Then again, there will be night workers out there who must’ve spotted something, but then this is a TV show with 45 minutes to tell its tale.
