Written on the cell phone. …Sick beyond words.

Hi all. Woke up this morning and switched on the news. Nothing suprising at first, until they got to the story from Sweden. Around 25 men had been arrested for rape. This men raped a young woman in a flat and someone live streemed it on FB. One one side I’m glad about the person’s stupidity for filming it, however the whole thought that it may not of happened if they had not filmed it. Happy slapping has morphed inot something sicker. How many bullies have filmed their beatings, how many sicko’s have filmed other acts. Should social media be regulated like gun laws? If your found with a record of abusing social media you get banned? Social media is a great way for authors,  artists and many more to reach so many over the globe. It does have it’s uses. However it can be abused for the same reason to get the wrong message across. I hope the future holds a way to let people enjoy this technology and the sicko’s regulated.

Assassin’s Creed, The Movie…..Review time.

Today was not only the start of a new year but also a chance to catch the first movie of the year. As a massive Assassin’s Creed game fan, I was overjoyed to hear they had finally made a film.

As I sat down with my oversized bucket of popcorn and ocean of coke, I began to feel the tingle of both joy and fear. The excitement I was finally going to see the film, but also fear the makers had messed it up. The history of games making it to the silver screen has been a mixed bag. Some good and others were absolutely horrid.

Now at this point, the critic would go through the film and flood the pages with spoilers. But not this one, Oh no. What I will say is this is based on the game, it isn’t the game’s story.

This is a three-hour ride so make sure you go before you fill up.   It was enjoyable, the effects were brilliant, the acting was….well it’s Micheal Fassbender, enough said. You can see this has been thought of, not just thrown together and a label slapped on to it.  The ladies will like it because dear old Micheal F, keeps taking his shirt off.

It is a great film, and so I will give it 4 out of 5 (and not just because a good mate of mine is in it. lol). So, go and give it a go.
