An amazing journey in a Vietnam era wartime epic

Reviewed by on

Scott Riley’s vivid, colorful, striking, dark and gritty narrative takes you back in time to his tour in Vietnam where you're pinned down with his fire team during the monsoon season fighting to the last man as the enemy closed in. An African American soldier in the U.S. Army, Riley goes AWOL and etches out a life with his Asian wife, Ba in the back alleys of the coastal city of Qui Nho'n while hunted by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division (C.I.D.), local Vietnamese law enforcement and rival criminals, which evokes the spirit of Francis Ford Coppola’s epic film Apocolypse Now and Stanley Rubrick’s Full Metal Jacket.

Riley operated with a level of sophistication more indicative of a highly trained CIA agent or British Secret Service operative rather than an Army private who regretted his decision to join the Army looking for a way out by any means necessary. The crowning jewel: This is a true story. To say that the narrative arc of Riley’s time in Vietnam is certainly a fantastic read is a bold understatement to say the least, and worthy of being adapted into an independent film.

Good fans for the price. Airflow is good and the RGB looks great. I'd suggest buying the 3-pack of these fans. It comes with an RGB splitter which you can plug into a 12V RGB header, if your motherboard has one. Otherwise, there is the RGB controller you can use

Struggled to get the Bluetooth working with iOS, eventually figured it out and was quite surprised how good the audio was, its decent alright. Small over-ear covers so be weary if you have large ears. Other than the two issues its quite a decent noise cancelling headset for the price.

A South African classic: Also known as The Winners

Reviewed by on

Allegedly autobiographical in tone – specifically concerning the life and career of director Emil Nofal - this production is the intense, draining and powerful story of Will Maddox who is a winner at everything and in everything. His almost insane desire to win at all costs eventually causes him to lose everything, including his family who are driven away by his crazed desire of success and all it brings.

Also known internationally as My Way (the Frank Sinatra theme song is used throughout the film) and very weirdly as Super Jocks in the United States, this is truly one of the all-time classic South African productions, with excellent photography, music, editing and superb acting. With Joe Stewardson, Marie du Toit, Richard Loring, Tony Jay, John Higgins, Ken Leach, Madeline Usher and Jenny Mayer. Followed five years later by a sequel The Winners 2 (a.k.a Again My Way) directed by Jans Rautenbach.

Locally made with a European feel

Reviewed by on

This movie appears to be made and funded locally with a number of actors recognisable. This makes the movie a guilty-pleasure of sorts for me.

Willow street has a compelling story (if a bit disjointed and hard cut at certain points), it has some great scares (quite a number of jump scares) and creepy scenes with an engaging and semi-original plot.

The Effects are great in this movie and the cgi has been put to good use without being jarring.

Overall a good way to spend 90 minutes. Not a stellar movie, but good. The feel of the movie reminds me a lot of older European horror from the late 80's / early 90s with dubbing and characters often being caricatures of who they are meant to be.

Overall a sold effort that will not disappoint unless you nitpick all the faults (of which there are a number). The pacing is fairly good with the movie being watchable until the end.

The Best Midi Controller around (depending on your SAW setup)

Reviewed by on

This review is based on using this controller with the MASCHINE DAW.

This is an awesome controller that does exactly as promised. If working in Maschine you will get seamless and in-deph DAW integration as well as all buttons on Native Instruments products (Mondark, Massive, kontakt, Reaktor, etc) fully mapped and saved with your soft synth.

This takes away all reliance on using a mouse or keyboard for your musical journey and can practically do everything via the keyboard. When using one of the Native Instruments sift synths, this virtually feels like a full-blown synth with all the ease and touch controls that one could need.

Further to this VST instruments and Effects also get mapped (i was amazed at how well it handled this) and translate very well to this keyboard. You will be going on Sonic journeys with this piece of gear in no time at all.

Lastly the keyboard itself is a semi-weighted fatar keyboard , making it extremely expressive and smooth as silk to play.

The only negative is that if you do not sequence in maschine you will be missing out on a lot with this piece of gear. While it still works with other DAWS (presonus one, logic, Cubase, ableton, etc) you still get some daw control and VST integration , however when used in maschine this will shine and become amazing.

I Used this keyboard in conjunction with my maschine mikro and was heavily impressed. The two units compliment, and integrate with, each other perfectly. changing aspects on the mikro changes aspects on the keyboard and vise-versa.

There are many 'surprsies' also in this keyboard that will keep you interested and invested for ages (the fact that the ARP on the keyboard maps notes to midi is probably my favourite. You see the notes mapped in your sequence rather than just the notes which you held on the keyboard. stunning.).

The build quality of the komplete controller is excellent and smacks of quality. It is sturdy, has feet that stick to the table and feels like it will last for ages.

Have fun!

An affordable top quality sleeve

Reviewed by on

Nothing much more to say really. The sleeve lives up to its claims. Don't get bogged down by thinking that more is always better. Yes slapping some 110 micron sleeves sounds amazing, but in reality you don't need that unless the cards will be put through hell. These are affordable, clear and the seams are tight! I tried their 2 finger pull test and it worked as advertised. The sleeve stretched and deformed long before it tore.

Glad this company got off the ground and their KickStarter was successful. Great sleeves for a great price.

Do note these are NOT matte and are smooth. Tall stacks will slip and slide.
