OK, when I said I wanted to wear something different and "designer" to the awards ceremony, I meant someting figure hugging and I'll tell you for the last time, Jacques Cousteau is not a bloody designer!!
I agree with David, this forum is not one for the teenagers just saying things to get a mention, I thought this was a serious site for those that appreciate (or not) all things AV.
Do we not have the ability in this day and age to say whether we, as individuals, like or dislike something without being accused of just playing up to the forum.
Sorry Neil, I for one thought the film was at best a good B movie but I am sure that some of the films I like, other people will feel the same about. That's life, I like things you don't and vice versa.
I am sure that the cinematic purist will say it was a piece of good cinematography, but as for making me feel like throwing up, well maybe.........................but only because I was sick at paying £12 for the DVD.
I regret paying the £12 for the DVD and thank goodness I didn't pay the £23 for the bluray version.
It was a typical first person type movie, Blair Witch, with the camera trying to give the movie some realism but for me the plot was as thin as I have seen and the complete lack of any real visibility of the "enemy" until almost the end of the film was terrible. Yes I am sure that some will say that it is a pure movietrying o move away from the monster/alien/baddy filled movies we have seen of late and that it is trying to get us to relate to the feelings of the individuals rather than just sit watching fights and chases, but for me, the hype this was given is not carried over into the delivery.
OK, it wasn't the worst disaster/monster movie I've ever seen, but certainly not one of my top ten.
Whilst the article is a nice introduction to the use of our computing power to serve us with audio and video, one of the options I would like to see reviewed is the presentation of these services over a wireless network. I for one have my audio video equipment in the lounge and for the sanity of my wife and family, have my iMac in a third floor office. Hard wired connectivity is therefore not an option to me. I have tried Twonky vision without success (connected to PS3) so a dedicated music server/client that can connect to a MAC/PC in a review would be fantastic.
In support of Abbas, every component can make a difference in computing terms, cache in hard disk, spin speed, memory, cpu. So, if you want the best, be prepared to spend. A nice MAC pro with a good spec will set me back over £2500 so for the time being, it's other options I need.
