Watch Dogs Review

What is there to say about Watch Dogs, well, I would first like to say that despite some critics negative comments about the game I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed the game wholeheartedly.

From my perspective, Watch Dogs is the type of game you can get lost in and that’s exactly what happened (in a good way).

Many people had mixed feelings about the game, which is fine, however, I not only enjoyed watching the gameplay on YouTube. I liked the way the synopsis for the game sounded so I of course bought the game.

Some people said the game played like Grand Theft Auto V, I see where they were going with that. It’s an open ended world where you can drive cars, have access to many weapons, and interact with objects / people but when I played it, I didn’t feel like I was playing another Grand Theft Auto game; it’s its own game definitely.

Some people from Chicago stated that the game didn’t look like Chicago at all, it definitely looked like Chicago; I really believe some people wanted this game to fail miserably.

Some people hated the controls for the game. I have the game for Xbox One so I’m pretty sure you can change what button does what for the controller.

I loved the main story, loved the protagonist (Aiden), loved hacking (my favorite part of the game), the open ended world, the characters, the side missions, Aiden’s coats (he looked so conspicuous), different choices you can make throughout the game, and the vehicles.

What I didn’t like was the fact that you couldn’t go into every building and you couldn’t leave Chicago (I really wanted to leave Chicago).

The game actually wasn’t glitchy like most open world games and it felt like a long game. I beat the main story in probably two weeks, which included the majority of the side missions.

Overall this game was definitely a lot of fun, definitely check it out.

Dragon Age: Inquisition Review

Now I absolutely love video games, my favorite type of genre is RPGs. If someone told me to play Dragon Age: Inquisition I would tell them sure sarcastically just for the simple fact that this is my first time ever playing a Dragon Age game in the series (I’m a late bloomer).

Now last year for Christmas I asked my fiancé to get me this for Christmas and nothing else guaranteeing me actually getting the game.

As I opened up the game I was excited and not surprised I received the game. I played the game and got mix feelings about it since EA is the publisher behind the game and they obviously have a terrible track record (SimCity, The Sims 3).

My first initial thought as I started the game was that the story kind of bored me and that I wanted to get to the action (fighting dragons and bad guys).

As I played more of the game and got further into it, I loved the game more and more.

The story gets better and better as you progress, you learn the main characters stories, and you become enthralled.

I can’t begin to tell you how long it took me to beat the game, it took forever because just like Skyrim you get sidetracked with side missions, caves, helping the towns people; did I mention side missions? If I didn’t do any side missions, I would’ve beaten the game sooner.

Overall the game is fantastic. Visually it was stunning, the game would glitch more towards the end of the main game which at times would frustrate me since I would have almost beaten the main boss and a dragon. I found myself having to just turn the game off and turn it back on. When I turned the game back on and started that mission again, it would actually start up where I left off which was a life saver.

The costume and character design is incredible. I can’t begin to tell you how long it took for me to design character, my favorite part about character design was the fact I could add scars to my face or what I like to call battle scars.

If you have debated on whether or not to play this game, please go get it, definitely a must have.

Mob Wives Review

Don’t judge me but I have been watching a lot of ‘Mob Wives’. I should be ashamed but I guess it’s my guilty pleasure. ‘Mob Wives’ is a reality show on VH1 that stars woman that were born in or associated with the mob.

I have watched every season so far and as much as I want to not watch it, there is something about drama that isn’t my own (I don’t have any) and their vulgar language that makes me giddier than a school girl on a Sunday morning.

I think the show just makes me feel better about myself (glad I don’t act like them). It’s hard to believe that these women act so vulgar and feisty but I guess when you rat on someone (call the cops), you are bound to get cut and shanked on the streets of NY.

As I watched the reunion episode of season 5 of ‘Mob Wives’, I knew there was going to be profanity thrown and fist hitting woman in the face repeatedly, my jaw was dropped the whole time because I couldn’t believe I couldn’t look away and shocked with all the foul language I was hearing (I should’ve expected it).

Do I recommend this show? If you like the C, F, B, W, and A word thrown around every 2 seconds while women are threatening other women, yes dammit watch the show with your head held high.

Open Windows Review (2014)

So ‘Open Windows’ stars Sasha Grey and Elijah Wood in a movie about a neglected fan (Elijah Wood) who soon finds himself caught up in a deadly cat-and-mouse game after he accepts an opportunity from some random guy with a bad accent to spy on his favorite actress (Sasha Grey) on his laptop.

Netflix seems to always have a way of sucking me into the really bad movies and this was just another bad/confusing movie that never should’ve been made.

Elijah Wood was awkward and weird and Sasha Grey’s attempts at acting were just that, attempts. Maybe I am giving her such a hard time because of her prior film work, maybe I should watch more of her movies but no, her acting wasn’t the best.

I’m sure the script wasn’t the best, the plot was ok, and I couldn’t wait for the movie to end.

The whole movie was just too confusing, there were parts where I thought I finally understood what was happening until something else happened and then I was confused all over again.

The most comical part of the whole movie was a scene where Elijah Wood instructs Sasha Grey via computer to be seductive as she’s being held captive by the guy instructing Elijah Wood via computer on what to tell Sasha Grey, she was wearing a robe with nothing else on underneath, she exposes her breast and nothing more, I am pretty sure the writers did not want to show her completely naked, they didn’t want viewers to think they were watching another Sasha Grey Porn.

Overall watch at your own risk.

‘The Family’ Review (2013)

https://i0.wp.com/blogcritics.org/wp-content/uploads/bcimages/2013/12/TheFamilyMain.jpg

‘The Family’ to me felt like a movie that I have seen one hundred times.
Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert De Niro star as a mob family hiding in the witness protection program in France with their two kids.
I’m going to be completely honest, I had this movie in my list for months on Netflix and attempted to watch it three different times. The first time, I turned it off after 10 minutes of watching it. The second time, 5 minutes into watching it. I guess the third time is the charm because I actually sat down and watched the whole movie.
The movie starts off slow and when I mean slow I mean eyes low nap time slow. When we finally get to the middle of the movie, it finally picks up (finally).
Overall the movie had its high and low points, at times it was a little comical, other times I felt like I was watching ‘Anger Management’ because Robert De Niro was always angry and screaming.
Definitely see the movie once and only once because that is enough for anyone.

Gone Girl (2014) Review

This review is strictly based off of my personal opinion only.

‘Gone Girl’ is one of those movies where you think you know what happens and then BOOM something else happens in the movie that makes you completely confused.

Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike star in this drama/mystery/thriller about a husband whose wife goes missing, causing a media frenzy, the spotlight then turns on him making him the number one suspect of his wife’s disappearance.

I was told by several people to watch this movie because of how good it was and how Ben Affleck should’ve won a million awards for his performance. So of course I listened to the masses and rented the movie and as I sat there watching the movie I wanted this movie to never end.

I can honestly say that this movie was absolutely amazing and I’m not just saying that because everyone said it was, it was just that, amazing.

Rosamund Pike (Amy Dunne) was convincing, beautiful, and witty. Ben Affleck (Nick Dunne) was convincing, brilliant, and amazing. This was the first time I’ve seen Rosamund Pike in a movie, her performance was outstanding. Ben Affleck’s performance was absolutely amazing, truly outstanding. I’ve seen a lot of Ben Affleck movies but I can honestly say this was his best performance in a movie, absolutely loved every scene he was in.

Tyler Perry (Tanner Bolt) did a great job as well. It was refreshing to see him play a character that didn’t involve a wig or him being a sad husband. Carrie Coon (Margo Dunne) was pretty fantastic too, another actor I haven’t heard of before but plan on watching many movies with her in it.

Overall the movie was fantastic, I loved a few characters, than hated a few characters, than loved all over again. One of the best dramas I have seen in a very long time, it kept me on the edge of my seat, not so much a fan of the ending but I see why it ended the way it did.

I definitely recommend this movie.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) Review

‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ stars Will Farrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, and Steve Carell in the sequel everyone was waiting for, and waiting for, and waiting for.

Will Farrell plays Ron Burgundy, San Diego’s highest rated newsman, who returns to take on New York’s 24-hour news channel.

Now I hesitated in regards to watching this in the theater so thankfully it came to Netflix. I decided to watch the (super-sized version) just for kicks and I wish I had not.

The first half of the movie was funny and watchable, I wasn’t bored up until I realized the movie was a lot longer than expected, roughly 2 hours and 23 minutes to be exact.

I literally sat there wishing it would just end, the movie became less and less funny after the first hour, the amount of unnecessary jokes were too much for my brain, I thought my head was going to explode.

Overall if you do decide to watch this movie, just watch the shorter version and save yourself the pain of sitting through the longer version of the movie. I don’t know what’s worse, Kanye’s appearance or how long the (super-sized version) was? I don’t know, they both even out.

Fifty Shades of Grey Review (2015)

Finally saw ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and in a way it was everything that I expected. First off I went to see this movie knowing that it wasn’t going to be the best picture of 2015 thus didn’t get my hopes up.

The movie felt rushed and I don’t mean that in a good way, the acting was sub-par, they left out a few scenes hence it being so rushed, it really did feel like a more sexed up version of ‘Twilight’.

I felt Jamie Dornan’s (Christian Grey) acting was off but it was ok, I don’t blame him, I blame the script, I liked looking at him.

Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) did a good job for the most part, I actually enjoyed the scenes with her in it.

Overall it was nice having a visual to what I had read, I would recommend this to anyone who could tolerate the books and don’t mind the sub-par acting. The movie is definitely aimed towards woman and/or anyone in a relationship.

Poltergeist Official Trailer (2015)

So I am a fan of the 1982 classic Poltergeist, when I found out they were remaking the original I was skeptical, I watched the trailer than showed my fiancé who also loves the original and we both agreed that we would definitely see the 2015 remake. I am not so much of a fan for remakes but I have high hopes for this remake, what do you guys think? Do think it will be terrible or amazing?

Fifty Shades of Grey

So I told myself that I didn’t want to read the book, let alone watch the movie (I’ve gone over to the dark side).

I am reading the book now (which is not that bad…yet) and I have watched the trailer (by myself) and I am wondering two things. First, are they going to show everything that’s in the book? Second, is it me or does ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ remind everyone of a more sexed up Twilight?

The fact that ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ takes place in Washington (same place as ‘Twilight’), each female character (Bella Swan and Ana Steele) are young virgins who meet older men (Christian Grey and Edward Cullen) and show them what it’s like to experience their inner most desires, I would say yes.

Obviously ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is targeting woman (21-45), it’s another soft core porn for woman (I’m ok with this). I know it comes out the day before Valentine’s Day so of course the theaters are going to be packed with men that were forced to take their significant others to see this movie.

Let’s be honest, no man wants to see this movie unless you’re really into BDSM and romance, every guy would rather stay home and watch ‘The Interview’ on Netflix.

I tried to get my fiancé to take me to see this movie but he declined my offer of being surrounded by woman for a 124 minutes (his loss).

Luckily a co-worker of mine is willing to see this movie with me (thankfully) because I am not seeing this by myself, which would be lame.
