9th April 2012 - Not so 3d

Yesterday I was dragged to see The Titanic in 3d by my girlfriend. Surprisingly the Cinema was full even though it was Easter Sunday. I want to start this out by letting you know that I think The Titanic is a good film, before I start shitting on it. The thing is the film is just too damn long. Fucking 3 hours and 15 minutes that is not including the pre show adverts. I was basically sat in that cinema seat (that fucking uncomfortable cinema seat) for 4 hours. 4 fucking hours on a film I have seen twice before. I wouldn’t have minded much if the 3d would have brought something new to this film but its barely existent. Me and my girlfriend paid and extra £1.50 each to see this 3d film. I know it doesn’t seem like much but when there is barely any 3d (that is noticeable anyway) what is the point. There are moments in the film where 3d would have been perfect. When the ship goes under and the water splashing up (oh I must say spoilers…..Guess what The Titanic fucking sinks) or when the water is rushing in to the bottom of the ship. There could have been so many moments where 3d would have just worked, but it never happened. All I could tell were bubbles popping out at the start of the film in the submarine sections and the title card popped out a little. What a fucking waste. Don’t get me wrong though the film is a great iconic film, just a very disappointing 3d experience and damn too long to be sat in an uncomfortable seat. I would recommend watching the film. Just maybe get it on blu ray. Sat in your own home, warm and comfortable where you can relax and maybe stop the film to go for a piss or some food if it is needed.

My feelings on 3d have really changed recently. At first I loved it, the gimmick. I went to see bad films just because they were in 3d (my bloody valentine). But I have to say for the past year or so I have really got 3d fatigue. I feel it is actually to a films detriment in most cases now. The screen is dark, you get eye ache. I really cant be arsed with it any more.

As for games I have been playing recently. I finished Syndicate the other day and man was that game surprisingly good. At first I thought it was a mediocre first person shooter that reminded me allot of the new Deus Ex game that came out last year. But about an hour in you start opening up major powers that really mix up the combat, and make the game play feel a whole lot better. I especially like the persuade power that lets you take control of the enemy making him turn on his allies. When all his allies are finally killed he will then turn his own gun on himself. I also think its is worth mentioning the final boss which is tense as fuck. My palms were sweating facing off against the dude, and my heart was pounding for the whole fight. Also generally I cant fucking stand Dubstep but when that battle is over and the Dubstep starts playing over the credits you cant help but love it. I would recommend any one buy this game and I can legitimately see it ending up on my games of the year list for 2012. Also right now the game will more than likely be fairly cheap so go on go out and buy this shit.

After finishing Syndicate I immediately moved on to The Darkness 2. As of right now I have beat the first boss, saved and finished there. I bought the game on PC and my initial thoughts where that the game is fucking impossible with a mouse and keyboard. The way the quad wielding works means it is a perfect fit with a game pad but in no way works with a mouse. Its also worth mentioning how fucking beautiful it looks on PC with the graphics turned up full. Fucking awesome game so far.

That’s about all I have to say for now. Noting going on in the week really. Back to work Wednesday and more Darkness 2 is about all. I do wanna get out to see Battleship at some point, that comes out Wednesday. It looks SHIT!!!!! Seriously it looks really bad. N27

Well, Rhianna is in it so it can't be that bad, can it?

@Ravenlight: ha nah never not just because she has bad taste in movies

@altairre: I'm not too sure Rihanna being in the film is a good idea, shes a singer. I cant see her acting being up too much and yeah she is something good too look at but isn't the film a 12a so we wont be seeing much worthwhile
