Keith Lemon The Movie Film Review

While wandering around naked, knob gags, farting and ripping the micky out of celebrities is hilarious for a 25 odd minute TV show, ramp it up by an extra hour and its just plain awful! The plot is awful, acting is awful, the film is just plain awful! A real shame, as we normally like Mr. Lemon's humour.

Expendables 2 Movie Review

More story, more action, more explosions, more limbs flying, more heads exploding, more over 60's on steroids, more humour, more guns, more of everything in general, which is actually a good thing! Expendables 1 just seemed to be a case of blowing stuff up, Expendables 2 had a fairly decent story and was much more light hearted, making all the death and destruction entertaining rather than just for the sake of it. All the cast get to do their thing this time round. They also take the mickey out of their previous films, with jibes at film titles and slogans. Much better than the first and rolls out death and destruction to the max for a 15 certificate!

Zombie Shopping Mall Experience

Headed to Reading today where ZED Events holds their Zombie Shopping Mall Experience in an old abandoned mall. The place is already spooky enough, being a deserted dark mall, but you have live action zombies chasing you! After our briefing we were given a combat vest and gun, then we had to infiltrate the mall and retrieve a blue case containing information about the virus. This whole first zombie experience was scripted and we had police actors following us. The second mission we were on our own and had to retrieve as much ammo from the mall as possible. This was actually much scarier as you started out in the basement, which was pitch black with just a torch! Our third mission was to retrieve the antidote from a medical area, then escape the mall. Again we were left to roam freely around the darkened mall, with zombies popping up all over the place, groaning, chasing and trying to bite us! A superb experience that genuinely made me shit my pants a few times, especially the pitch black basement. Highly recommended day out!!

Ted Film Film Review

Coming as the first live film from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, this is actually a live version of Family Guy with a giant talking teddy! Back when Wahlberg was 8 he wished his teddy was alive, and hey presto he is! Growing up together, drinking and doing pot together they become life long buddies. Eventually though they have to grow up as Ted comes between Wahlberg and Kunis' relationship. I would call this film a very loose crude comedy rom-com. It is also in the same format as Family Guy, with lots of cut away gags. It keeps you chuckling throughout, which is good for a comedy of this length, and MacFarlane as Ted is as funny as in Family Guy.
