The Reel Deal *TV Edition* - The Inbetweeners are Back :D

The Inbetweeners return tonight, 10pm on E4 :D Honestly, I can't wait.

The Inbetweeners is the most true-to-life teen show out today, possibly ever. "Skins" is unrealistic as hell and "Coming of Age" is just ridiculously bad. But The Inbetweeners is funny and actually depicts what would go on in a British School, albeit, some thing are a little heightened, as to not be completely boring.

The concept from the get-go is amazing. The Inbetweeners. Not the insanely popular (dickheads who THINK everyone like them or fear them) and not hopeless and reclusive geeks. The Inbetweeners represents everyone that falls in between those categories, and it's awesome.

So, go watch. It's the start of their Upper 6th year, meaning this is the last one (it'll probably be split into two series - first term, second term or something similar) Of course, then we get The Inbetweeners Film. Which last I heard was based in Magaluf, which would be amazing.

Also I realise I haven't been updating or visiting other's blogs etc, sorry about that, will get back on schedule. :)

Gamexperience - Battle for Middle Earth 2


Been playing this recently after picking it up for £7.50 and it's really quite good. Command & Conquer mixed with Age of Empires. Decent game and worth a look :)

Listen Up! - Lamb of God - Wrath

Listen Up!

Wrath Album by Lamb of God

1. The Passing
Nice way to start the album. Pretty chilled, bit of a progression sounding like Jaws. Epic intro to the album, just instrumental.

2. In Your Words
Powerful introduction accompanied by a bad ass scream. I guess I could say this is one of their slower-paced songs on the album. For Lamb of God, it is quite easy to listen to, without getting pumped up etc. Not the greatest on the album, but it is definitely still good, easy to get into.

3. Set To Fail
Easily one of the best on the album. Amazing intro and then a bad ass drop. Then kicks in the memorable tune, which you'll find yourself humming or drumming along to. Definitely one of my favourite tracks on the album. Everything flows so well. Epic is the only word to describe this.

4. Contractor
Fast-paced and dives straight into the lyrics. Slows down with an awesome riff, then gets back into it. Fast is definitely the motive behind this track.

5. Fake Messiah
Starts with a low quality riff, then kicks in afer a small stop. Seems slower than Contractor. Different to what we've heard so far. Got nothing on the next track.

6. Grace
My favourite track. Probably my favourite Lamb of God song as well. Starts with a soft intro, lulling you into a false sense of security, then blasts you with awesome. Yes, just pure awesome for the next 3 and a half minutes. I don't even have to write about this song, just listen to it. If you read this "review" and hate it or don't even know Lamb of God, or whatever. Just check this shit out. Epic.

7. Broken Hands
BLOOD OF ALL YOU HAD TO LOSE! Very powerful. Pumps you up from the beginning, then an epic riff. Good tune throughout. Definitely one of the better tracks on the album. Awesome Drum and Guitar work, which comes with pretty much every track.

8. Dead Seeds
Memorable riff once again. Another great song just because it's a really familiar one when you listen. Very fast and you can help but go with it. Another really great track from this album.

9. Everything to Nothing
Great introduction. Again, another track with a memorable beat, etc. Very easy to drum along with and remember. You will also be screaming witht he chorus. EVERYTHINNNGGG YOU EVER WAANNTTTEEDDD.

10. Choke Sermon
Not too bad. Not a favourite of mine, but you can't fault it really.

11. Reclamation
I actually haven't listened to Reclamation that much, so I'm not too familiar with it. Very slow for Lamb of God and seems to be trying to be similar to Grace. Not as good though.

12. We Die Alone (Bonus)
Great start. I'm a fan of this bonus track, just because it's a little different. Slower and resembles a more Metalcore band, rather than Heavy/Death Metal.

13. Shoulder Of Your God (Bonus)
Not a bad one. Not the best on the album. But good, nonetheless.

Overall, great album. Some tracks are spectacular. Especially Grace and Set to Fail. An aquired taste is needed for Lamb of God. But if you like Metal and fancy something a bit heavier, give them a go.

Also, for epic Guitar Videos and the like, check out

Thanks for the support guys :)

The Reel Deal - Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

I had heard nothing but good things about this movie. Constant praise. Claims that this movie is the future of film-making and appeals to the generation very well.

I'd agree with that, this movie was awesome.

Everything worked in a weird and quirky way. All the characters had something you liked about them. The references to other texts (intertextuality - Media Studies YEAH!) was great. The idea is simple, if Scott Pilgrim wants to date this new girl, he must defeat her 7 Evil Exs. Yeah.

Michael Cera plays the awkward nerdy guy, only this time he's a bit more aware of himself, almost jerky. Not as helpless as his character in Superbad, etc.

Apparently this was based on comics, which I hadn't heard of before the film and haven't read, but I imagine it probably transfered quite well.

The only bad thing about this movie is that there aren't enough people going to see it, especially in America.

Awesome move, go see it :)

So, I'm wondering about this new Spiderman game. Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions. It looks...different. Could be quite cool, could be terrible. I'll probably wait until it's out, read some reviews and see if the price drops, if it bombs.

This is just a small "What Do You Think?" Gamexperience. Feel free to comment with your thoughts :)


So, I'm taking up Blogging.

Instead of boring you with shit about my life, I'm going to bore you with my opinions on Films, Games and Music. Why not, right?

The Reel Deal, Gamexperience and Listen Up! will be posted at random intervals and hopefully will be interesting to you :)

Thanks :D
