1st things 1st, pablodiablo316.deviantart.com/… (the link to the ongoing artjam :)

And now some reviews:)

Sparks: I picked this up cheap from the local supermarket on Friday,wondering if it could give me some inspiration, and I have to say wow, no really huge names in it, a very dark tone to the film and it is all shot on a low budget hence the producer playing one of the bad guys lol.

Sparks is set in the 1930's mainly done in flashbacks after a battered and bloody man staggers into a newspaper and says "I want to report my murder".

Sparks is a tortured young man who after his family were killed when a police chase got too close decided the only way to deal with crime was to become a super hero, however he has no powers that he knows of so he trains hard, his gran makes him a costume and he cleans up the small town he lived in with ease. He then decided to move to the big city of New York where he soon finds out even fighting alongside the cops he has a skill disadvantage but he meets and teams up with a young and beautiful fellow vigilante known as Lady.  

Things however go wrong after a while resulting in him losing her and his life goes out of control, he becomes a minor pimp and then gets more then he bargained for, but all the time there is this underlying thing that he heals quickly. it has a bit of a shocking end fight scene where with nothing to lose he really goes for it.  Even though he is the hero and triumphs the film shows he still has a bit of a dark side to him at the end.  I would give it a solid 8/10 a good movie let down by its low budget.

He who dares:- Another cheap one from the super market showing a group of terrorists on Xmas even kidnapping the PM's daughter and hiding out in a car park, the bad guys are high in number and well equipped and the film is even billed by the blurb on it as "The Raid meets Die Hard"  Eh nope!

Who ever wrote this did not do ANY research on the methods that the SAS would use in a hostage rescue attempt, instead they are shown up as a bunch of well drilled but unprofesional thugs and ofc only one of them survives.  It has some great scenes and some good ideas but is let down by the main villain whose actor is clearly trying to out psycho guy the likes of Christopher Walken or Gary Oldman, he actually comes across as a foul mouthed prat.

But back to the issues with the SAS squad.

(1) the uniforms are wrong, they wear a blue jumpsuit with a black balaclava which they soon all take off where as the CRW teams of the SAS are famously known for wearing black.

(2) The gear, yes they have the right guns in the form of MP5's but they have no sights, no silencers nothing at all that you would expect a COVERT strike team to have on a gun

(3) No show of tactics In a scene where a poor hostage is about to be raped they save her then stand in a big huddle out of cover trying to talk to her and get intel and they get shot up and compromised within 1 minute of the squad leader saying "No matter what we must not get compromised".

(4) PM daughter and her two friends. Frankly anyone as unpleasent as them I would let the terrorists kill, I could not care about the characters in the slightest!

(5) BIG PLOT HOLES The PM daughter giving up info on her dads bank account, uhm if I had several million quid in the bank,Isure as hell would not give the details to my 18 year old daughter!

All in all despite some great ideas in places, its bad scripting, bad research and total disregard of how one of the most elite combat units in the world would act makes it a failure 4/10 just for the good fight scenes.

ANd Now some game reviews. Most of my watchers will be aware I entered :icondevduck01: 's artjam, what I did not know is there was some prizes, I took £35 of amazon vouchers and replaced one game for my PS3 that the disc snapped on me (mercs 2) and 2 games I have wanted to play but could not find them at a price I liked.  DOOM 3 BFG, which has Doom 1, 2 and 3 plus all the DLC of 3 on one disc:) So far its been great fun despite some truly odd looking weapon models lol. It is alot of fun genuninely spooky in places (your flash light has a nasty habit of running low on charge just as a monster jumps out at you.  8 of 10 for this so far

And Xcom The bureau, set in 1962 you play CIA agent William Carter a broken washed up agent after a personal disaster (his family died in a fire while he was overseas on assignent)  he is called toa secret US base to deliver something in a case and all hell breaks loose, but unlike the main XCOM games where you researched tech built up a base and the like, this is a 3 man squad based game, and its pretty good despite the AI on both sides having the odd moment of going "full retard" and standing there shooting at each other while screaming for a medic (my reponse is normally a sarcastic "get in cover then you gibbon!"  It is pure;y a story based game but its fun and it goes some way to erase the memories of the bodged update of the old game that came out before it I would give this so far a 9/10
