LOOPER movie Review

LOOPER movie Review

Any review of the movie LOOPER that tells you essentially any elements of the plot is going to be written by a jerk who doesn't want you to get the full movie experience - take that to the bank. What we're going to talk about here and now is how you need to see the movie and what sort of mood you need to be in. LOOPER is a time travel movie when you go into it, and a bit of a baffling mystery wrapped inside an enigma when you walk out of it - but you wont be walking right out of it, you'll be sitting in the chair thinking about what you just watched, just like you're supposed to while the credits are rolling.

The Expendables 2 Review

The Expendables 2 Review

By far the best scene in Expendables 2 is when Dolph Lundgren kicks a bad guy in the face off a balcony, casually shouting “Goodbye!” in the process. It’s an utterly ridiculous and over the top moment that caused me to burst out laughing, and it’s exactly what the movie needed more of.

Pyle Audio PLTTB8UI Record Player Review

Pyle Audio PLTTB8UI Record Player Review

I'm going to go right ahead and assume that most of the people checking out this review are here because they're confused about why SlashGear would review a vinyl record player. I think that's fair to wonder. There are two reasons, the first of which is the fact that this record player not only has audio input via a convenient little smartphone dock. The second is this: I've still got a massive stack of records that I want to play, and I'm certain that there's a massive population of readers out there that have their own, too - you don't just throw those things away!

Samsung UN55ES8000 55-inch Smart TV Review

Samsung UN55ES8000 55-inch Smart TV Review

Samsung's D8000 was our TV of choice back in 2011, and the company is hoping to repeat its success with the new 2012 flagship, the Samsung UN55ES8000. A 55-inch behemoth, though with strikingly delicate design, the ES8000 ticks just about every box you'd expect for a modern Smart TV, and then some more after that. It also has a hefty $3,749.99 RRP, so can the quality live up to the cost? Read on for the SlashGear review.

Men in Black III IMAX 3D Movie Review

Men in Black III IMAX 3D Movie Review

When we spoke with Ken Ralston and Jay Redd of Sony Pictures Imageworks, they described this movie just as it was: a collection of plausible alternate realities. It is at this point in the Men in Black series that they're able to take for granted the fact that most of their audience will have seen a previous installment, Men in Black I or II, and can move forward with the characters to explore new non-origin adventures. This Men in Black takes everything positive from the first two films and hits a home run with not just a fabulous new story, but exquisite visuals and a collection of engaging characters as well.

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.

AAXA P4 Pico Projector Review

AAXA P4 Pico Projector Review

We've seen our fair share of pico and pocket projectors here at SlashGear, but recently we've had the pleasure to work with and review one of the most portable and brightest of them all, a pico with an 80 lumen engine -- the AAXA P4 Pico Projector. There are many different uses for a portable projector and whether they are an expensive toy, or a needed accessory is up to you. Head on down for some pictures and hands-on video of this little projector in action.
