Tanner Reviews Darknet

Darknet_TV_logo_2014I do enjoy horror movies. I’m not some pretentious twat wagon that sticks his nose in the air at the mere mention of a slasher flick or a murder spree adventure. Hell, I love the Friday the 13th franchise and I am one of the critics that will constantly praise Saw as being one of the best horror franchises of the past couple of decades. I do enjoy them… But man, of all the genres out there, horror is the one that is filled with the most mind numbing crap. Oh! Speaking of mind numbing crap, let’s talk about Darknet!

I was expecting a lot more out of this series going into it. I saw it on Netflix while browsing through the lists one day and thought: ‘Hmmm…. I do enjoy a good anthology series AND people are comparing it to American Horror Story and V/H/S so I’ll give it a go.’ After watching it, it is nowhere near the same level as American Horror Story and V/H/S. It isn’t even in the same room as American Horror Story and V/H/S. Darknet is the lowly fry cook dumping the used grease into a back alley while American Horror Story and V/H/S enjoy a lovely dinner with sensible good movies and television series.

Tanner Reviews Far Cry 3

Far_Cry_3_PAL_box_artMy first experience with this game did not come with playing it first hand, but instead watching a play through of this game being played by the people of Video Games Awesome. When I first saw the trailers for the game it did not look like something I would enjoy and the play through online did not look like a lot of fun either. After Video Games Awesome finished their walk through to the conclusion I decided that even though every sense in my mind was saying this is something I would hate, I couldn’t help but see the comments saying that even though the story line was not very satisfying but gameplay was a redeeming quality to the game. So… That being said I decided to give it a shot and rented Thursday to see how I personally felt about the game. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Far Cry 3”

Tanner Reviews Harper’s Island

CBS_HARPERS_UPFRONT_CLIP01_120x90I am a fan of mysteries. If you ever see my review of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express you will know that every now and again I enjoy playing along with mystery novels and stories and trying to deduce who the was the killer. Which is why when I saw ads for a new television shows many years ago called Harper’s Island claiming to be a murder mystery television show I was excited. So back when it came out in April of 2009 I sat in anticipation of the new TV show… And immediately felt the dejecting sting of disappointment as the first episode came to an expected and lack luster end.

The Car Wash… OF DOOM

Finally! After fighting with my electronics for what felt like an eternity, I have finished and posted my latest review, Transformers Issue 31: The Car Wash of Doom. I am happy to report, I actually got a temp job recently and can now afford to get better equipment then the stuff that I have to work with now. So this means that soon the quality of my work will improve considerably! I plan to buy some of the best equipment I can to ensure that I can provide for all of you the best quality that you all deserve from me.

But I digress, on to the review! Overall I think this is definitely one of my best reviews to this date. I do believe I made some really excellent points about the comic book. I also was able to get in a couple of really good jokes in the process.  Issue 31 of the Transformers comic is by far one of if not THE most surreal of the Transformers comics that was put out by Marvel and I think I did a really nice job proving that. But I’ll let the review to speak for that. Please watch it at the link below.

I do think there were some areas that I could improve on, nothing in this world is perfect. One problem is my crappy movie editing software did not come with photo editing thus a lot of the pictures appear a little bit small. Plus I do not have a photocopier so I had to take individual pictures of most of the pictures for the comic book which was rather tedious. I am not making excuses but merely pointing out that I acknowledge my flaws and will learn from my mistakes. But these are also rather little flaws in the grand scheme of things, the video is still rock solid in my opinion.

So things to look forward to in the future. As I mentioned in my last post I do have new characters on the way, a Tanner Tries Review, and tis the season to be spooky. Personally, I can’t think of a better way then to review a movie centered around some spooky ghosts… Ghostbusters 2! You can look forward to these and more in the future. Thank you for reading and stay posted for more of Tanner Reviews the World.
