Prometheus Movie Review and Red Carpet Coverage

Prometheus Movie Review and Red Carpet Coverage

Alien was all about dark, ominous spaces and a sense of intense claustrophobia and mounting tension - in part due to Ridley Scott's withholding of the final Xenomorph in all its glory as the film reached its climax (along with hiding its comparably low-tech costume). Prometheus is the CGI-overspilling, determinedly 3D and generally expansive movie Scott could never make back in 1979. It's a fraught process, returning to a story that not only helped make a career but shaped a genre, and Prometheus swings between sensation, horror and a sometimes uncomfortable philosophy.

Battleship Movie Review

Battleship Movie Review

While this summer has no lack of action adventure movies going for it, what with the likes of The Avengers, Prometheus, and The Dark Knight Rises on deck, Battleship is prepared to be the cleanest selection of the group. The blockbuster category requires that a movie be spectacularly large in its on-screen scope, and the movie Battleship does this - and little else. Like each of the interviews you may have heard thus far on the film, including our most recent interview on Battleship with Industrial Light and Magic, this movie is definitely a "popcorn" flick - that means you should come prepared to quite simply sit back and be entertained, and entertained well.

Philips HMP2000 Review

Philips HMP2000 Review

Smart TV is gaining traction, but not everybody wants to upgrade every set in their house just to add native streaming support for Netflix and similar services. Philips believes it has the answer with the HMP2000, a compact Netflix adapter that also promises YouTube, Facebook and local media access for under £50 ($79). Is this the Roku rival we've been waiting for? Check out the full review after the cut.

There are many different uses for a portable projector and whether they are an expensive toy, or a needed accessory is up to you.

Warpia StreamHD Review

Warpia StreamHD Review

Right this moment you are two USB dongles and a handful of simple clicks away from displaying your computer's display on your HDTV, no questions asked. What we've got here is the Warpia StreamHD wireless HD media transmitter and right out of the box you'll be able to plug in and make it happen, just so long as you're using a Windows computer and your television is able to work with HDMI, as all good high definition televisions should be these days. Take a look here at how neat this little setup is and how you, yes you, can now watch Netflix on your non-internet television without the heinous acts of purchasing an Xbox or an iPad 2. Of course if you've got those, then there's no reason for this, right? Wrong, mister, there's so many things you could do with this little set of gadgets that it's unreal.

Ferguson Hill FH009 Review

Ferguson Hill FH009 Review

Ferguson Hill is best known for its monumental FH001 and FH002, towering horns of transparent perspex with a similarly mammoth price tag. The company broached the computer/MP3 speaker market a few years back with the markedly more affordable FH007 system, and is back again with the FH009, aiming this time at the music and home cinema market. The premise is a setup both visually and aurally arresting; the price is a not-inconsiderable £795. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Orbitsound T12v3 Review

Home entertainment can be difficult: do you invite dozens of speakers into your living room in the quest for perfect sound, or opt for a one- or two-box setup and maybe sacrifice some quality for simplicity? UK firm Orbitsound claims to have the compromise, with its T12v3 soundbar using a clever, patented system to create stereo sound with room-wide sweet spot. It's the holy grail of home entertainment, but does it really work? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Samsung UN55D8000 55-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D LED Smart TV

Samsung UN55D8000 55-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D LED Smart TV

Ever since CES back in January, we've been hearing that 2011 will be "the year of 3D." Happily, Samsung isn't focusing entirely on the third-dimension with its new D8000 Series HDTVs: the 55-inch UN55D8000 also promises superlative 2D performance and Smart TV functionality including network streaming, all wrapped up in a wafer-thin bezel. Still, with a list price of $3,599.99, the D8000 will have to deliver in spades to justify the cost. Check out how this 3D behemoth copes in the full SlashGear review.
