GTA V on Xbox One – The DVDfever Review

GTA V on Xbox One

GTA V on Xbox One needs no introduction. The best-selling game of 2013 finally lands on next-gen consoles and, if for some reason, you missed out on last year’s PS3/X360 versions, then stop reading now. Just go buy the game, its good! In fact it’s the best of its genre.

For those who partook in last year’s outing on previous-gen consoles, is it worth while returning? Well that depends. If you sold your PS3 or Xbox 360 to buy your next-gen console before you finished GTA V, and have been yearning for more Trevor, then this is a superior experience in every way. There’s all the downloadable content released so far, new vehicles and a sprinkling of extra missions such as Michael solving a murder mystery. If you’re transferring your save games from your last-gen version, then it’s had a new lick of 1080p paint and the visuals are gorgeous with more detailed textures and further draw distances with far less pop up and no vanishing roads which would occur on the PS3 or Xbox 360.

Jurassic World – Official Trailer #1 (2015) – Chris Pratt, Jake Johnson Movie HD

jurassic-worldJurassic World takes place 22 years after the events of the original Jurassic Park, where Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond.

Naturally, things are going to go wrong, but now, two days ahead of schedule, the full trailer has been released. However, like with the teaser, despite the revelation in this trailer which gives us an idea of something new, I just don’t find it that enticing. I know I’ll go and see it, but… will it be any good?

Also, while Steven Spielberg will have a hand in the project, he won’t be directing. That honour goes to Colin Trevorrow. Who? He’s not made any films you’d be aware of. Then again, while the first film was great, the second one was also directed by Spielberg but it stank!

Jurassic World is released in the UK on June 12th 2015, and stars Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Chris Pratt along with Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, Vincent D’Onofrio and Omar Sy.

Bound – Intruders Series 1 Episode 6 – The DVDfever Review

intruders1f-featured

Bound

Bound begins with Frank talking to the Rose Gilchrist through Amy’s body, now that her past life has been fully triggered, and she needs him to track down someone else who is due for triggering. But who? Well, for the purposes of TV, she writes it down on a piece of paper for him to read, but not for us to discover… yet. Ooh, these pesky TV execs!! However, what they need to do is such a great risk that, if they get rumbled, they’ll no longer be allowed to come back and live additional lives.

Ida on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

ida-featured

ida

Ida, is set in the early 1960s, and stars the stunning Agata Trzebuchowska (below) as Anna, a young nun who’s about to take her vows, but before she does that, Mother Superior (Halina Skoczynska) recommends she visits her aunt, Wanda Cruz (Agata Kulesza, bottom pic), her only living relative, and who is unwilling to take her away from the orphanage where she’s presently living, making the excuse that Anna wouldn’t be happy living with her, when really, Wanda is a selfish woman who only cares about herself, her boozing and her loose morals, both of which are taken to excess.

However, she then seems to have a complete about-turn, to the point where I thought this was a different character written into the script, as Wanda takes Anna back to the house where her parents lived, so she can find out more about them and their time during World War II. Anna also learns that Ida Lebenstein is her real name, as well as some dark revelations about her family.

UK Top 100 Music chart summary & my views w/e November 29th 2014

November 29th 2014Going straight in at No.1, in the UK Top 100 Music Chart w/e November 29th 2014, Band Aid 30 with Do They Know It’s Christmas?, as a bunch of tax-dodging celebs tell us to give all of our hard-earned money to “fight Ebola” in Sierra Leone. Give your money to your chosen charity, not the ones that the celebs tell you to give it to.

As such, Gareth Malone’s All Star Choir drops to No.7 with Wake Me Up When It’s All Over… how apt, since this 7-hour dullfest perpetuates year after year.

The only other new entries in the Top 10 are four more entries: No.2 for Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne with Real Love, then a No.3 for Olly Murs feat. Travie McCoy with Wrapped Up, followed by a No.5 for David Guetta feat. Sam Martin with Dangerous, and finally, No.8 sees Wretch 32 with 6 Words.

And here’s David Bowie‘s new track, Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime):

Jurassic World – Official Trailer Sneak Peek (2015) – Chris Pratt Movie HD

jurassic-worldJurassic World takes place 22 years after the events of the original Jurassic Park, where Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond.

Naturally, things are going to go wrong, but so far there’s just a sneak peak trailer that’s been released and… I can’t say I’m massively wowed by this because it doesn’t offer anything more than we’ve seen before. Or maybe that’s the point? I loved the original film, but the second and third ones were terrible.

A full trailer is due this Thursday.

Jurassic World is released in the UK on June 12th 2015, and stars Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Chris Pratt along with Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, Vincent D’Onofrio and Omar Sy.
