Annenberg Political Fact Check

Posted by Martin Poulter on 25 February 2005

Now WinningArgument is gone, I need another favourite political site. Factcheck.org wins easily, showing how both political sides in the US have outrageously stretched the facts. Each of the articles shows the document or video they are criticising in full, and they allow their targets right to reply. Now, if only there were a UK version.

Duality

Posted by Paul Smith on 8 February 2005

After wondering ‘how easy would it be to do composite filming techniques on my home PC?’ I set to Googling. On my searches, I uncovered this brilliant Star Wars inspired lightsabre film… For an amateur production, it’s awe inspiring, and the site contains full details on how the film was made (if you trim the URL a little). Apparently it’s all done with animation, and just two props!!

Mao and the New Games Journalism

Posted by Paul Ayres on 8 February 2005

Game Girl Advance posts about Maoist, Western Imperialist and Gonzo Journalistic reviews of computer games. So you get “some reviewer preaching to them about deconstructionalist post-feminism in the key of Metroid Prime” which is a long way from saying whether a game is any good at blowing things up.

Worst film ever made?

Posted by Martin Poulter on 3 February 2005

Uwe Boll’s Alone In The Dark is being hailed by some reviewers as, if not the worst film ever made, then at least the one with the most predictable dialogue, pointless monsters, fumbled love scene and boring shoot-out. Execrably bad films make for hilarious reading entertainment as the film critics pile on, using the English language to its fullest to express how talentless Uwe Boll must be.
