Introduction: The story (Set in Stalingrad (Russia), 1942) is about a Ural peasant who discovered his ability of accuracy with a sniper rifle, when he was stuck in the middle of a battlefield. The story begins here, when he shot a bunch of german soldiers at a rest point.

Pros:

  • War movies are always great. The plot was accurate, with just some minor flaws in the real story (Battle of Stalingrad).
  • I liked that Vassili Zaitsev took time to really blow someone’s head off.
  • Lots of Sniping action.
  • Good use of broken mirrors (You’ll know why when you watch it).

Cons:

  • The german top sniper, Major Erwin K├Ânig, isn’t that good as to blow someone’s head off while they are jumping over a gap, right?
  • Sex scenes in war movies = fail.

Overall: I noticed that Call of Duty 1 used the same history as this show eg; (In Call of Duty 1, the person infront of you (while doing the Russian Missions) gets the rifle, while you get the ammo. The reason is that when a person dies, you get to take his rifle, so there’s no wastage.) Anyway, the plot was accurate, the cast was good, the recreation of The battle of Stalingrad, awesome. 7/10. Worth watching, but if you decide to read up about the real history without watching a movie, its fine.

Introduction: Clockstoppers is about a teenage male named Zak, who is on a quest to get enough money to buy his dream car, a red chervolette car (model unknown). After gathering all the money, he is upset by his father, who delays on checking the car on the same day he gathered enough money. His mysterious adventure begins after he took his father’s creation, the QT watch, which could slow down time or freeze time.

Plot: The plot was kinda obvious (Father get’s taken away by the QT Guards, Relationship with Francesca (The new kid in school) etc;), but the show was good. I liked the idea of using Blink 182’s songs in the show, because the show was the kind of ‘Teenager american life etc;’ theme. They used “All the small things” and “First date“. I should say that the choice of song for the theme of the show was excellent. The idea was unique, stopping time with a digital watch, because most of the time only people with ‘superpowers’ could stop time etc;. I dont think there is much to go through with the plot because of (SPOILERS).

Cons:

  • Horrible graphics, example: Meeker (Zak’s friend) doing hand-stands on the DJ Table and the bike running over water etc; But graphics like that in 2001/2002 is pretty impressive.
  • Humor in the show is not that very humorous.
  • The gadget behind Zak’s back, too ‘science boy comic-like’. I mean, it looks so fake, like he got that from a costume party or something.

Overall: 6/10 (Nothing awesome, but still pretty good to watch).
