Another Day Trip!

So, me and The Dave went to Birmingham today and saw a lot of cool stuff, not all of which is mentioned in the video. So, I'd like to say a few things about the celebrities we met today too. Arthur Darvill (Dr. Who's "Rory") was the main pull of the convention today. Sadly, we didn't get to meet The Last Centurion in person, but he seemed like a lovely chap. I then got to meet with Ladislav Beran ("Kroenen" from the first Hellboy movie) and shook his hand, and got talking about what it was like to work with Guillermo del Toro. Finally on the list of celebs that got the Mr. Craiggy treatment today was Ian McNeice (Churchill from Dr. Who to name a more recent role) who, quite frankly, wasn't impressed by me talking with him...

There were so many cool costumes and stalls too, and so much to see and do in a day, but for now, I'll let the video speak for itself. Enjoy!

Seeya next time!

Tintin Bonus Review.


Ok, so this is our review. Apologies for the poor sound quality. Tintin was good but damn did Billy Elliot (who plays Tintin) need to be punched in the face! Hope you enjoy.


(This post has officially been grammar nazi'd by Mr. Craiggy.)

The Three Guys Halloween Special.

Authors: Sidders & Mr. Craiggy.

Apologies it's a bit later than planned. Youtube wouldn't allow us to submit a video of more than fifteen minutes in length, so we're back to Vimeo.

Also, the closing credits song is "They're coming to take me away" by Napoleon XIV, and yes I realise that I messed up and wrote it as A Nightmare Before Christmas, not THE Nightmare Before Christmas...

Deadman Wonderland

Author: Sidders (Text section by Mr. Craiggy)

So, here's our latest review in our Three Guys continuity. This review, for those of you following our plot, takes place after Sidders invented and immediately regretted his "Not Dragonball" drinking game (See Dragonball Evolution review).

Apologies for this video not being uploaded sooner, but for some reason it decided to chew up, spit out and dance all over my editing software when I tried doing something clever instead of just putting clips in sequentially, so this is our first video using Sidders' semi-professional standard editing software (Being a screenwriter and everything, in case you hadn't guess by now; he's mentioned it that often...)

So yeah, this is the first of hopefully a new breed of Three Guys videos, featuring better quality, better effects and all around better, ummm, ness.... Yeah, betterness!

Please enjoy the review and please comment and subscribe:

hunger games trilogy review

points i forgot to mention:

the characters are very dark, very complicated and therefore very human, i found myself yelling at the pages when a character did something they shouldn't! and i nrealy cried on 2 occasions becuase you become so emotionally invested in the characters and their situation.

there is a social message bout how the children are the ones to suffer due to adults and war and shellshock etc but i only care that its a fun read tbh; very cleaver takes on some ideas and creative. and with Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss in teh film i now have 2 reasons to love it more :D

Points Sidders Forgot to Mention Further:
Capital letters.
This is another bonus post.
Skynet is aware.
The Game.
Three Guys don't usually do bandwagon books, but in this case we'll let him off.
Hunger Games is the intellectual property of its author and now the production company making the films, this review is done purely for entertainment purposes and is in no way intended to breech copyright laws. Please don't sue us.

Bonus Post - Descent!

Okay, this one wasn't planned, but we were having so much fun playing the game that we decided to film the footage. So yeah, another bonus video for you, so yeah, this one's not in continuity either!


Descent Bonus Video from Three Guys on Vimeo.

Descent is the property of Fantasy Flight games... The same people who make Tannhauser... Damn they make a lot of fun, if overly complex and time consuming board games!

Bonus Post - Cowboys VS Aliens.

- Author: Sidders (Blurb by Mr. Craiggy)

Okay, a few things about this post.

1. Yes, I know my windowsill's messy.

2. This is a bonus post separate from regular Three Guys continuity so do not count this with regards to our ongoing jokes.

3. I think Sid got confused with the days. I think Cowboy VS. Aliens is out today, not tomorrow...

All this being said, enjoy the video:

In Brightest Day, in Blackest Night, no comic movie shall escape our sight.

Author - Mr. Craiggy

Well, apologies for not posting for a while but it's been all go recently. I'd planned to write this review a while ago, but never got around to it so again, apologies for that.

A few weeks ago, myself and The Dave went to go watch the Green Lantern movie as a sort of late birthday night out for myself (Yes, Mr. Craiggy is a whole year older now...)

Now, let me start by saying that I am a HUGE Green Lantern AND Ryan Reynolds fan, so this was a make or break film for me. And let me continue by saying that overall, I was not disappointed.

Okay, so it's an adaptation of the origins story of Hal Jordan. This story has been told so many times that anyone with even the remotest knowledge of GL history will know it. So the story goes, Abin Sur crashlands on earth and his ring seeks out a replacement, finding hotshot risk taking test pilot, Hal Jordan. With me so far? Good. Okay, so the film starts with an explanation about the Green Lantern corps and what it is, what it does etc. I liked this, because it got enough of the details out for newcomers to the GL franchise without being too boring for old faithfuls like myself. Now, here's were the story changes a little for the film. Abin Sur (Played by Temuera Morrison, of Jango Fett fame) got his arse handed to him by an entity known as Parallax. Okay, fair play, there's no larger threat in the GL universe than Parallax, except maybe the Black Lanterns, but he doesn't come til much later. I'll excuse this for adaption's sake.

The film progresses, and I have to say Mark Strong (Lord Blackwood from Sherlock Holmes) played an excellent Sinestro! But, to cut the story short and to avoid spoilers, there's a massive build up about Hal being the one who can overcome fear with courage and prove that Willpower is stronger than Fear (All very important plot threads in GL history, top marks there adaptors) but then leads to what I thought was a very rushed and somewhat anticlimactic ending...

Sure, I understand they had to leave some stuff out like the yellow impurity to the lantern rings, and I understand that they had to leave time for the bonus scene after the credits (Which, if you haven't seen Green Lantern yet and are a fan of the comics, you HAVE to stay and watch, or find online!) but the final fight with Parallax just felt hugely rushed and insignificant compared to the build up. Kinda like Nando's, you hear all these amazing things about the food there, get really excited and then when you get there, it's just chicken; nice chicken, but still just chicken... I'm gonna get shouted at by Sarah for that one later, but hey, everyone has an opinion right?

So, Green Lantern. Fun for fans and newcomers alike, even if it was a bit rushed at the end. The effects were brilliant and I have to admit this is one film I wouldn't mind seeing in 3D if the opportunity arose. Yeah, you heard it, I just admitted to wanting to give in to the gimmick of 3D... Ryan Reynolds was brilliant, but then, it's Ryan Reynolds, what did you expect? And I can't wait to see the next one, seeing as it has been rumoured to be a trilogy...

So, this is Mr. Craiggy, signing out for Three Guys.

Dragonball Devolution.

Author: Sidders, with a little help from Mr. Craiggy.

First thing's first, apologies for this review being SO delayed. It took forever to get around to filming it due to some confusions between myself and Sidders. It then took a long time to properly edit the darn thing and then when we came to upload it onto Vimeo, the filesize was too large. Then I went on holiday for a week and didn't prep the video for uploading elsewhere before I left so one of the other guys could do it, so sorry for that on my part, but without further ado, let's take a look at what Sidders puts his newfound immortality to the test with now. Ladies and Gentlemen, Dragonball Evolution:

Part 1.

Part 2.

Part 3.

Now, after this review was filmed, Sidders did actually make me and Sarah sit down and watch this with him (Yes, we played the drinking game.) and I have to say, inaccuracies aside, it wasn't that bad. Like Sidders said, it's one of those films where if you just want to watch something stupid, you can put this on, sit back and switch off your brain. I'm not gonna go to any lengths and say that I enjoyed this movie, hell no! But I can now say I survived it, and there were some kinda cool moments in it too...

So, this is Mr. Craiggy and Sidders, signing out for Three Guys.

Recent Round Up.

Author: Mr. Craiggy

Okay, so it's been a while since our last update. Sadly, no video this time, but I just thought I'd take some time to give you something of an update of what's been going on in the wonderful world of the Three Guys.

Firstly, we've sent Sidders off on an adventure to the American lands on a bloodhunt for Uwe Boll (We didn't have the heart to tell him that Boll lives in Canada...) so I'm sure he'll have something to say about his trip when he gets back.

As for me, well, I've been playing lots of games as you've seen. My list includes Street Fighter IV and Marvel VS Capcom 3. Not much to say here, both fun games, especially MvC3 though I'd like a lot more in the way of unlockable characters... Also on my list was Sega's espionage RPG: Alpha Protocol. If you want my honest opinion, I do like this game. The story's very spy movie-esque but without the over the top nature of say a Bond movie or Just Cause 2 (More on that later). The controls handle nicely, though the aiming can sometimes be a bit annoying. Moving from cover to cover handles very well. My one issue is it didn't feel like anything original... The combat and stealth felt very much like it was trying to be Splinter Cell, the weapon upgrades felt very Army of Two, the dialogue felt like a poor Mass Effect/Dragon Age and the main character's voice actor was a bit... Cardboard...

So, Just Cause 2. This has taken up most of my gaming time recently. I checked my gametime and I've played almost 21 hours worth of it and still only have a 25% completion rate. This game may take up the rest of my life, and I love it for it... It's just so much fun! Sure the plot's very far fetched and over the top, it's very cinematic and the game defies most if not all of the laws of physics, but it's just mindless FUN! And that's what I want from games. It's the largest sandbox game I've played, ever. It's bigger than either of the Saint's Row installments (Also, very excited for The Third).

Still on the Sandbox vibe, I finally got around to trying Crackdown 2... I loved the first Crackdown game, for the same reason I love all superpowered sandbox games like Prototype and InFamous, and Just Cause 2 because let's face it, Rico's a superhero! But, Crackdown 2 just felt bland. It was more of the same, which is nice, but not enough. A tagged on story about a vampire zombie virus outbreak isn't enough to make me want to play the same game again...

Still on my to-do list is Dungeon Siege III and Brink, both of which I've preordered on Steam and am currently preloading Brink so I don't have to wait while it downloads on release day this coming Friday.

As for The Dave? Well, he's been somewhat elusive. I think he's plotting world domination again, and let's face it, who'd try and stop him? It's Dave for crying out loud! But seriously, he's been a very busy boy with his workload and as such I don't think he's been doing much in the way of gaming but will happily be corrected by him. We did however, the three of us, get to see Thor in 3D on release day at our local Vue cinema.

Let me say, as a massive comic-book fan, I'll admit Thor is a character I don't know a lot about other than the bare basics. I never really followed any of his series' other than The Avengers, I haven't even read much Ultimates, which is the basis for the movie franchise from what I gather. As such, Thor was a throwaway movie to me, I wasn't excited about it, but still said I'd see it. Let me tell you, I am SO glad that we went. This movie blew me away! The writing was good, the action was well choreographed, the special effects/CGI was nicely done. There was humour, there was romance, there was... Natalie Portman and Kat Dennings :D There really was something for everyone. 3D did nothing for this movie though. there wasn't really anything that jumped out saying "WOW! Look, I'm 3D!!!" The best bit of 3D was the advert for Real3D before the movie with a robot dog playing with that training ball from Star Wars.

So yeah, that's been us since the Bloodrayne review, which still has me feotal as a movie... Though part of wants to try and endure the second and third offerings now... *cringe*

Well, that's enough for the moment, so until next time:

Bloodrayne... Finally!

Author: The Three Guys

Father, forgive us for we have sinned... It's been almost two months since our last update. So, to business!! We're trying some new things in this review, including the usage of film footage. It's offscreen footage until I find better software (It always seems to be a software issue with us...)

So, the disclaimer:
The following review is the property of The Three Guys. This video contains footage from Uwe Boll's Bloodrayne, images from the Playstation2 video game and music by The Smashing Pumpkins. The copyrights and intellectual properties displayed within this video all belong to their relevant sources and The Three Guys claim no ownership of them. This video is filmed purely for the sake of entertainment and as such, claims no copyrighting whatsoever of the contained material. Please don't sue us, we love you!

Right, that being said, on to the review:

Now, with regards to the bit about Ben Kingsley's wig, it would have probably helped to have a shot of him with it actually on, so here you go:

You can see why we were shocked now...
