Bobby Fischer Against The World Documentary Review &Trailer

A quote by Albert Einstein at the start of this documentary: “Chess holds its master in its own bonds, shackling the mind and brain so that the inner freedom of the very strongest must suffer.”

I am not a huge follower of chess but do enjoy the occasional game, so when I noticed this documentary about Bobby Fischer I was interested to learn more about this man, the man some consider the greatest chess player ever.

The main feature of the documentary shown is with Fischer’s “The Match of the Century” in 1972 against Russian Boris Spassky, in which Fischer won.

Trailer

That match even showed a side of Fischer which I never realised, things such as not showing up for certain games, complaining about cameras in the room, and eventually having to have the games played in a smaller room. Even Spassky started Continue reading

Irregular Choice Womens Patty Court Shoes Review

With 6 styles to choose from and liking all, it was the black and white themed pair I opted for first, and after really liking them I then got the lilac and pink pair.

What I like about these shoes is not just how comfortable they are which is of course really important, but because of the 8 centimetre heel they are very easy to walk in.

Friday Night Dinner TV Show Review & Trailer

Friday Night Dinner is a show about two brothers Johnny (Tom Rosenthal) and Adam (Simon Bird), who both visit their parents Jackie (Tamsin Greig) and Martin (Paul Ritter) every Friday evening for dinner.

What happens throughout this dinner changes from episode to episode, but you can guarantee it will involve the brothers playing practical jokes on one another, the salt in a glass of water trick seems to be a favourite that they like to do.

I was recommended this show after watching and enjoying the TV show Him & Her, but I can honestly say that I found Him & Her a lot more entertaining than Friday Night Dinner.

Trailer

Him & Her was more adult orientated humour, whereas Friday Night Dinner was just based around silly scenarios created by the family. Like mentioned before, there is only so many times you can see someone Continue reading

SFR Snowflake Childrens Ice Figure Skates Review

My daughter showed a keen interest in ice-skating when her friends family took her a few times. So after confirming with her that she was definitely going to be keeping the new hobby going, I let her look for a pair of ice-skates on Amazon.

It was the girly looking SFR skates she was instantly drawn to. All white apart from pink laces, and a fluffy pink lining, and to finish them off some nicely designed silver snowflakes all over.

SFR Snowflake Childrens Ice Figure Skates Review

When she tried them on at home she said they were really comfortable, and I too was impressed by the quality of the skates, and the fact that the blades had guards which I didn’t even think about.

So now she enjoys skating Continue reading

Gremlins 1 + 2 Movie Review & Trailer

I bought Gremlins 1 + 2 specifically in blu-ray because I wanted the best quality of product, but now I am left a little disappointed regarding the sound.

Gremlins 1 was in 5.1 Dolby digital which is perfect, but then the smart people who make these things decided to make Gremlins 2.0!

Why would they do this, the second one is even more recent than the original, makes no sense whatsoever.

The picture quality of both movies is sharp and has vibrant colours. Gremlins 1 being shown in 1.85:1 format, and Gremlins 2 being 1.78:1.

Trailer

As for the actual movies, Gremlins 1 is so much better than Gremlins 2. I had not watched the second one Continue reading

Chitika Website Review

Chitika offers a PPC service similar to how the popular Google Adsense functions, so I decided to put it to the test and see for myself how the programme performed compared to Adsense.

Chitika Earnings

The earnings on Chitikia I found appalling. On day 1 I had 24 clicks from over 8000 impressions, and the revenue earned was a whopping $0.16! My average CPC with Adsense is more than this amount from 1 click.

Chitika Website Review

At this rate a publisher would need to wait approximately 62 days before receiving a $10 payment by Chitika, hardly inspiring.

The same scenario continued for the next few days before removing the ads completely, which was a pity because if only the CPC was respectable I had no complaints about receiving on average 20-30 clicks.

Ease of Use

Creating ads on Chitika is very simple and easy to do. You simply choose which ad Continue reading

Him & Her TV Show Review & Clip

Him & Her is a TV show based mainly on two characters, boyfriend and girlfriend Steve (Russell Tovey) and Becky (Sarah Soleman). Becky lives in Steve’s flat and together they do very little each day other than eating, drinking, sleeping and having sex.

I had my doubts about the show when reading the description, but surprisingly I found the show really works well and makes for good viewing.

What also makes the show good is that Dan the upstairs neighbour will make an appearance in each episode. Dan is quite an odd but interesting character who really just wants to be involved in everything Steve and Becky do, but he doesn’t always show up at the right of times, but for viewing I always like when he shows up.

Series 1 Clip

Other characters that regularly make an appearance include Becky’s sister Laura and her boyfriend Paul. Laura is rather annoying and totally blind to the fact that her boyfriend Paul only shows Continue reading

A Haunted House Movie Review & Trailer

I usually enjoy spoof movies, and because A Haunted House was going to be a spoof of movies such as The Exorcist and Paranormal Activity, all ones I have enjoyed, I thought it was going to be quite funny like the Scary Movie ones, but it wasn’t.

Basically the whole script was setup to be like Paranormal Activity. Malcolm has allowed for his girlfriend Kisha to come live in his house, and unknown to him she is possessed. Then “supposedly” funny but scary things start to happen around the house.

Trailer

That’s basically the whole movie, and the individual scenes which happen throughout each night are not really worthwhile Continue reading

The Unbelievers (Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss) DVD Review

A documentary that features Cameron Diaz and Ricky Gervais giving an opinion were the first warning signs that this was going to be a badly made documentary, and I was right.

I purchased this DVD in the hope of viewing some powerful intellectual speech on the subject of science v religion, and this documentary never delivered this.

The way this DVD was constructed was appallingly bad which mostly featured snippets of Dawkins and Krauss giving speeches at various events around the world, all whilst playing rock music in the background, and tunes from artists such as REM!

I imagine I like others would purchase such a DVD to listen to deep conversation, to learn, but this was not delivered. I would have been much better off just watching YouTube videos of Dawkins and Krauss than what was offered.

Am really not sure who the target audience was for with creating this DVD. On the one hand Atheists would learn nothing from Continue reading

The Killing (2011) Season 1 Review & Trailer

[No Spoilers]

I was aware of a Danish version of The Killing being available, but I opted to watch the US version instead due to the fact that subtitles are not really my thing, particularly for long TV seasons.

After watching season 1 of The Killing I was surprised with the fact that the story was not concluded at the end.

I genuinely watched thinking that after season 1, season 2 would begin with the same characters but a new crime, but I have just realised that this is not the case and the case is not yet solved, so the story continues on to season 2 which I have yet to start.

Trailer

The main story thus far is that a young girl from Seattle goes missing, and not long after her body is discovered in the boot of a car. Detective Sarah Linden is drawn to the case even though she was meant to be quitting her job that day, and so she is assigned Continue reading

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Movie Review & Trailer

Over the years I have heard a lot of people mentioning the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, so last night I watched for the very first time.

It is indeed quite a strange movie, a movie about a guy named Joel (Jim Carrey) who meets a girl named Clementine (Kate Winslet), but she then gets some sort of special treatment which removes all memories she had of being with Joel, and when he learns about this he too gets the same treatment.

It’s only once they have had this treatment that they begin to realise what each other truly meant to one another.

Trailer

Throughout the treatment for Joel, he is laying in his bed whilst some kid is monitoring his Continue reading

The Inbetweeners 2 Movie Review & Trailer

For me, the best part about watching The Inbetweeners 2 was seeing Will McKenzie’s mother again, the gorgeous Polly McKenzie (Belinda Stewart-Wilson).

The movie was nowhere near as good as the first one, and even though I did get a few giggles at some of the scenes, it just seemed to lack anything else, no substance, and the general storyline was a bit of a bore.

This time around Jay is in Australia and he’s been text messaging his buddies back home telling them how he is now a top DJ, how he is living in a mansion, and how he is sleeping with different gorgeous women every day of the week, when in reality he works in a nightclub toilet, and sleeps in a tent in his uncles back garden.

Simon, Will and Neil decide to fly out to Australia to Continue reading
