“In a twisted social experiment, 80 Americans are locked in their high-rise corporate office in Bogotá, Colombia and ordered by an unknown voice coming from the company’s intercom system to participate in a deadly game of kill or be killed.”

—IMDB

This is one of those movies that is enjoyable, just as long as you remember to shut your brains off. The Belko Experiment isn’t an entirely unique or fresh take on the cliché story of putting people in a room and seeing who will kill to survive and who won’t. Battle Royale did it, The Hunger Games did it, and many more. This film is just another film on that list. Does that make it any less enjoyable? No, just as long as you just shut your brain off, otherwise you won’t enjoy this film at all.

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games Trilogy: Book 3)


Mockingjay
Book 3

Greta book.  I mean it was intense and the flow was was extraordinary.  I simply loved it I could not wait to see what was going to happen next.  It was full of a lot of action and suspense and the growth of Katniss was extraordinary from the first book.  I just loved it a lot.  I also, no offense to any Gale fans out there, I do love Gale and no I don’t blame him for well, I don’t want to reveal any spoilers, for well there is a certain situation that people blame him for but I don’t.  I just don’t believe he and Katniss should be together because they are just to similar to properly co-exist as more than friends.  I love Peeta and I love him with Katniss.  All the struggle in this book, all the heart in the characters was really brought to life here and I simply loved it.  Amazing!  Dialogue and writing structure were simply amazing.  It felt as though I knew the characters by this point.  Simply brilliant.  5/5 ☆’s and an “A+”.

Sony Officially Announce PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Sony has officially announced their upcoming mega-melee game, which has been dubbed PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and is in development at SuperBot Entertainment. The game was rumoured last year.

The studio was formed specifically to develop this game, which will see many of Sony’s iconic characters squaring off against each other in brutal four-player fights. You’ll see duals such as Kratos against Fat Princess, Sweet Tooth and PaRappa the Rapper. There may even be some Helghast thrown in there for good effect.

SuperBot Entertainment was formed specifically for the development of this title, so Sony are sparing no expense to make sure the game, which is effectively a celebration of everything they’ve achieved as a first-party developer, is of the highest quality.

No release date was offered alongside the announcement, but journalists in North America were able to sample the game. Expect to hear much more about this title at E3 2012.
