Sony Bravia X800D

QUESTION: What do you want in a TV? Great sound, crisp image, and interactive interface, right? Well, Sony Bravia X800D 4K HDR TV brings you so much more. This TV brings in a very good compact home theater display – that for one is one of the best things about this television.

Vivid Movies

Now imagine a movie evening with the family with wide-color gamut/ high dynamic range with its Triluminos Display.

Imagine watching Iron-Man, Spider-man, heck even the great war films such as Fury and the likes, with this TV it’s going to be explosive.

Immersive Gaming

What about gaming? Me as a gamer, I love playing at home, especially if the screen gives me those brilliant colors and impressive brightness levels, and that is what you are getting with this hot shot Sony Bravia X800D.

What’s even more impressive? Its 4K X-Reality PRO, another feature of the X800D. It smartly, analyses each pixel using an image database, then automatically adds contrast, detail, and texture to every single frame of your content that gives it its robust colors.

Imagine having that while gaming Assassin’s Creed or Final Fantasy – the colors come to life!

With its specs what more can you ask for?

The lowly rated Assassin’s Creed movie review

The lowly rated Assassin’s Creed movie review

Review: Assassin’s Creed film

Assassin's Creed reviewAre you not entertained? Maybe Not. Photo Credit.

And I was so keen on watching this.

Being a fan of its games and its roots taken from history, I had high hopes for this movie until I saw it first hand and was utterly disappointed.

If you haven’t seen the movie, see it first and you be the judge if you agree that the movie is as sad as I am writing now.

Meet Callum Lynch (played by Micahel Fassbender) the main protagonist of the movie. At the start he was just a boy doing some parkour stuff that the assassin’s do in the game. Probably in preparation for his future self? Or is it because he’s born in the line of the assassins? But why does it seem he has no idea of his roots? The movie doesn’t resolve.

He comes home, finds his mother dead by his father’s hand. His father told him to run. Time jump to 30 years later. Callum is a convicted criminal sentenced serve to death penalty. Asked what his last words should be, he said that he’ll meet his father in hell. (Ok understandable.)

As justice is being served to him, the first death serum creeping up the valves into his veins, Lynch is visibly shaken, probably a hint of regret for his part, then came the end. Sort of.

He awakes inside a lab with beautiful Marion Cotillard, Sofia for those who have seen the movie. She has saved him only to confine him for research, a quest for the missing “Apple of Eden”.

This is where Mr. Lynch enters the world of the assassins. They used technology “Animus” to tap into Lynch’s genetic memory to access Aguilar, the last known assassin to have possessed the “Äpple”.

It seems to me that the movie was just cashing out on the game’s world-wide popularity as it didn’t give us any new storyline to follow. Casting is superb, but with a bland story, it isn’t really the casts’ fault if their acting come out as bland also. Just take for example the ending in which Callum is set to recover the Apple from modern day Templars led by Jeremy Irons. There was no build up, the excitement wasn’t there it’s as if it was expected that Mr. Iron’s will die in Mr. Fassbender’s hand. After these events, maybe a little over 20 minutes in real time, we see the assassin’s miles away standing on roofs while Marion Cotillard looks on (as if she can see them?).

I couldn’t really like the movie and if I was home I would have slept to it halfway. The pace is slow there is no excitement you might even repeat what Callum had to say in the movie “What the fuck is going on?” That’s the entire mood.

Rating 1.7/5

Sidekicks (Review)

Sidekicks (Review)

Sidekicks by Jack D. Ferraiolo

So this is something I want to share with you, I grabbed this book called Sidekicks by Jack Ferraiolo in a Booksale and instantly loved it. We always talk about the main superheroes but what about their sidekicks? I mean Batman would always have his Robin. Superman has Jimmy Olsen and so on and so forth.

The lives of these side men are rarely tackled which is why Jack Ferraiolo’s offering is a brand new concept. As I am writing this I am reading the pages that are artistically made – actually if you skip though the pages to the end of the book you’ll read that it was art directed, which is cool.

The synopsis of the book goes:
