Survivors Guide to Prison Review

Survivors Guide to Prison Review

You Might Survive

If you are in the mood to see a film that throws you up against a concrete wall, threatens your very existence, and almost makes you terrified to leave the house, have I got something for you!

Okay, I'm exaggerating a tad, but Matthew Cooke's "Survivors Guide to Prison" grabs you from its opening moments and doesn't let go of you until the final frame. By then, you'll be exhausted, frustrated, horrified, and scared out of your mind. And angry. Really, really angry.

Everything here is presented as an educational primer, of sorts, on how to survive if you find yourself incarcerated. The resounding message is no matter what you do, if you find yourself in jail or prison, you're pretty much screwed. Whatever your pre-conceptions are of prison life, reality is far, far worse. This is pounded into you by various narrators, including many who have already experienced it. 

In addition to this barrage of negativity, we also meet a couple of prisoners whose own personal horror stories are almost unfathomable. One of them found his mother dead in their home and was then charged with her murder, and he had nothing to do with it. He ends up spending many years in prison and it paints his prosecutor as being a filthy, lying vermin. Another innocent man spends many years in prison and after another prisoner tries to kill him, he kills his assailant in order to stay alive.

The central point here is that the system is entirely rigged against anyone accused of a crime. If you manage to survive all of the hurdles thrown in front of you, you'll still be mentally scarred for the rest of your life.

The title of the film is quite misleading. You can do little to survive the meat grinder of being caught up in the penal system. There is some valuable advice dispensed, but in the end, it probably won't help you, and it's a depressing thought. That we allow America to be run this way is disappointing, to say the least. All we can do is hope it never happens to us, but it will continue to happen to millions of Americans. Despite everything I have told you about it, please see it.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
