      So White Reindeer, directed by Zach Clark, not your regular Christmas movie. The project is very low budget (although doesn’t look and sound it) and the cash put together after 52 days fundraising through Kickstarter, the film meeting its pledged goal of $33,500, the Kickstarter funds making up for half of the production budget. If you are looking to make a low budget movie or wanting to do a book then check Kickstarter out. Ciao have quite a few published authors, writers and filmmakers, AND many of them starting out here and anything but before that. This site will bring out your talent, if you stick with it newbie’s.

      Its one of those films I discovered on various top 100 lists on the interweb and purchased it through Amazon Marketplace for little or no money. We all know we can’t really rent movies anymore and the low budget films listed on our movie packages on our fancy smart TVs often buried down those lists and so you never watch them. Your local libraries do rent films although decreasing the numbers all the time. Get in there before you cant guys. All this is just encouraging us to watch movies free online. It’s not a good situation for film quality in the future.

      ===Plot===

      Pretty and perky Suzanne Barrington (Anna Margaret Hollyman) is a successful realtor living in the suburbs of Washington D.C. with her weatherman husband Jeff, a newly wed middle class couple. With Christmas just a month away, Suzanne and Jeff are preparing to move to Hawaii for his dream job. Essentially things couldn’t be better for them as Suzanne loves Christmas and her favorite time of year.

      As we all know when life is going so well it sadistically kicks you in the face for celebrating that fact, Suzanne coming home one day to find her husband brutally murdered with his brains spilling out under the Christmas tree. The overwhelming grief to follow is as big and relentless as those waves that crash into Hawaii’s North Shore.

      Following Jeff's funeral a get - together is held at her house to see how they can help her, blood stains still in the carpet. During this time, a co-worker of Jeff's chats to Suzanne in tears. In the bathroom he breaks the news that Jeff was sneakily going to strip clubs after work and fell for a stripper called Autumn (Laura Lemar-Goldsborough). Stunned, Suzanne later goes to the family PC and checks those cookies and logs on out under Jeff's user name (they do that all the time guys so watch out). Under the history tab of his Internet browser, not unexpectedly, Suzanne finds that Jeff liked his ethnic porn (why do women think men don’t look at porn??).

      Suzanne takes time off from work to get her head right. During this time, she can’t help tracking down the black stripper, whose real name is Fantasia, and tells her of Jeff’s murder. It’s quite clear the two were close. But the meeting doesn’t stop there as the two begin to bond over their mutual loss. Through that unlikely friendship of sorts, Suzanne begins to cut loose – joining the stripper and her colorful friends on escapades of clubbing, drug taking and shoplifting. People deal with grief in different ways.

      • "Makes excellent photo and text prints; fast printing and scanning; PC-free faxing; includes media-card and PictBridge slots; wired and wireless networking; optional duplexer."

      • "Costly; awkward input-tray design; forces ink-swapping between text and photo printing; photo ink not included."

      The era of "jack-of-all-trades, master of none" all-in-one printers are long gone. Today the problem is solved by the introduction of multifunction machines that scan, copy, print, and fax without making sacrifices in output quality, speed, or usability. The HP Photosmart 2710 All-in-One is one such model compared with printers such as the Lexmark P6250. This HP prints beautiful text and photos; it copies in black and color; and it does a acceptable work of scanning. This machine's built-in separate fax won't subject you to the burden of faxing through your computer, either. What's more, the 2710 does all of these tasks at a brisk clip, and it comes with built-in wired and wireless networking. It's considerably more costly than the extremely user-friendly but old-performing Lexmark P6250. If your budget is tight and you don't need wireless networking, check out the great Epson Stylus CX6600 instead. On the other hand, if the sky's the limit pricewise and you demand a legal-size scanbed plus two-sided printing, look to the HP OfficeJet 7410 All-in-One. But for a small wireless office or a home network with limited desk space, the HP 2710 might be just right. Most contemporary all-in-ones are cast from the same mold, and the HP Photosmart 2710 All-in-One is no exception. Measuring 18.4 by 14.6 by 8.35 inches (WDH) and weighing 18.75 pounds, it resembles a personal photocopier. Two-toned charcoal-and-silver plastics give it a sleek, professional look. HP stacks the 150-sheet input tray on top of the 50-sheet output tray; these trays protrude a discreet 3 inches from the front panel, but they're clumsier to work with than those on other printers, such as the higher-end HP OfficeJet 7410 All-in-One. The stiff, hard-to-maneuver plastic guides that slide to fit your chosen paper size, as well as the clumsy output tray, combine to make inserting paper harder than it should be--especially 4x6-inch photo paper, which requires delving into the nether reaches of the input tray

I have 3 desktops and a laptop computer, the problems of printing from all of them with ease is solved by this machine.Initially, I had many issues with printing with old HP Photosmart 1000 that was rock solid in it's reliability which I had before. I did some enquiry on the different printers on the market at the time and discovered that this one was what we needed. The plus being that it was an HP, had a Lexmark before the PS-1000 and it always had problems with feeding the paper. The 2710 is great because everybody has easy access to it, the quality and speed of printing is exceptional.

      Disadvantages

      Poor Sales Skills

      We were looking at having new conservatory so we contacted 4 different suppliers including Anglia. The Anglian salesman sounded very positive and produced a very good looking option on his laptop, but would not give a price. He said he would come back with a quote and wanted to do so after I had quotations from the other suppliers – I agreed to this, but I should have smelt a rat!

      Anyway after seeing the other suppliers, they had supplied written/email proposals and I thought that it would only be fair if I got Anglia to do the same rather than giving them "special dispensation" to come up with an offer after seeing the other quotes.

      So I contacted the salesman by SMS (he requested this rather than ringing) asking that he provide his quote so that I can compare with others, but he insisted that he wouldn't, and that he wanted to make the formal presentation "as agreed".

      I then requested that if that was the case then he come to me before the others had given me their proposal, but again he refused.

      At this point I gave up and told him that if he would not provide the quotation by email or at the new date, then I said that I would remove Anglian from our list of potential suppliers.

      This he also refused to do, and I made it clear to him that it was up to the customer to change their mind and pointed out that he should "remember the stones" - a link to the salesman's course that has one of its rules is "the customer is always right".

      Again he refused so I told him that I did not want to see him and that the matter was now closed and I was sorry that Anglian did not want to do business. I told him that I did not need him to tell me how to make a purchasing decision (I'd spent over a decade in pre-sales) and that I did not appreciate his attitude.

      His response was "Them you (his words!) for wasting my time sir. I expect potential customers to have integrity and to keep to agreed courses of action. I do not need you to tell me how to do my job either. This number is now blocked on this phone as I require absolutely no contact further from you. Good day sir".

      I hasten to add that my wife was most upset by the way their salesman treated us. As he insulted my integrity (not a good move for a potential supplier!) I did send him a follow on message from another mobile to explain why I wanted a written quote (as he never asked).

      Based on my experience I will never contact Anglian again and I would recommend any other's considering them to make sure they get quotes from several other vendors as well and not to give Anglian the last "bite of the cherry". I did some more research and this does seem to be a standard approach by many double glazing salesmen where they initially come up with a very high price and then drop this to win the business and try to “pummel” the customer into submission.

      I did accept that Anglian may have an excellent product, I am not impressed with the training they give their salesmen.

      Advantages

      • "Accessible for all levels"
      • Succinct
      • "Excellent writing style"

      Disadvantages

      • "Skims over a few major aspects of history"

      An enjoyable introduction to the Monarchy of Great Britain

      David Starkey's book "Monarchy" takes the reader through the history of the Imperial Crown, and its journey through the British Royals. Starting with the infamous War of the Roses to set the back drop for Henry Tudor (Henry VII) commissioning an Imperial Crown Starkey journeys through history all the way through to the current Royal Family.
      The book is divided into 2 sections; Pre Civil War and Post Civil War. The story of the Kings and Queens of England is inter dispersed with pages of photos, portraits and sketches of the Royals in question, which adds a visual aid to learning.

      When starting the book I expected to find it interesting, but I didn't expect it to be such a page turner! I found myself swallowed by the fascinating and often brutal world of the Crown. The front of the book has several family trees which slowly become explained throughout. The writing style is fluent and engaging, even gripping. The stories of each Monarch fill in many of the gaps left by school history. Giving an insight into daily life Starkey isn't afraid to look to the more gruesome, or sexualised sides of history, and readdresses several commonly held myths.

      I have to admit I am a history buff, although I prefer modern history, and was utterly taken aback at how much I enjoyed the book! Probably suitable for ages 15+ it has advanced and varied vocabulary. It is probably too simplistic, and brief for an established historian. Highly recommended for any amateur historian.

      The 100 Foot Journey - a film I have seen here

      Star – Helen Mirren & Om Puri
      Genre – Comedy
      Run Time – 122 minutes
      Certificate – PG13
      Country – US/India
      Golden Globe – 1 Nomination
      Awards – 2 Wins & 2 Nominations
      Amazon – £ DVD £ Blue Ray
      = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =


      So why is 70-year-old Helen Mirren still so bloody sexy to men? Her figure is amazing, of course (although I’m sure scaffolded up under her couture), and she looks great with her make up on. But what we like most about her is she says it as it is. Her thoughts on life are guy’s thoughts on life and a woman we would most like to have a pint with. But her film choices rarely reflect her outspoken lifestyle and another safe one here. I really need to read her autobiography.

      The 100 Foot Journey is from director Lasse Hallström and earned Helen Mirren a surprise Golden Globe nomination in 2015. I was amazed at that as her performance is a breeze here in what is a very straightforward and honest movie. As it’s a non subtitled Western film about a wobbly headed South East Asian family Om Puri is in it, the familiar star of films like East is East, who died recently. He was much loved and was called Papa by the cast on this particular movie and he also moved out of the hotel they all stayed in so that he would have a place to cook for them. He is not the best looking guy but has had an amazing career and rare crossover success between Bollywood and Hollywood.


      ===Cast===



      • Helen Mirren as Madame Mallory
      • Om Puri as Papa
      • Manish Dayal as Hassan
      • Rohan Chand as young Hassan
      • Charlotte Le Bon as Marguerite
      • Amit Shah as Mansur

      • Michel Blanc as Mayor
      • Shuna Lemoine as Mayor's wife
      • Clément Sibony as Jean-Pierre
      • Juhi Chawla as Mama

      ===Plot===

      The Kadam family run a rustic restaurant in the Mumbai suburbs. The second-oldest son, Hassan (Manish Dayal), is being trained up to replace his mother (Juhi Chawla) as the main cook. When a mob attacks and firebombs the restaurant over an election dispute mum Kadam is killed as dad (Om Puri) and his family evacuates the guests.

      Seeking asylum in Europe from the troubles, the family first settle in London but that doesn’t work out for an Indian restaurant for some reason and they depart for mainland Europe. Shortly after entering France from the ferry, the brakes on Papa's van fail near Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the Pyrénées, luckily running up a run off road to stop the van before tumbling into the valley.

      Whilst gathering themselves on the side of the road Papa looks over the beautiful valley and scenic town and realizes fete has bought them here. A pretty girl on a bike stops to help them, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon) a sous chef at an upscale French restaurant named "Le Saule Pleureur" ("The Weeping Willow") based down in the valley. She points then to an auto repair shop for the van and a guest house for them to sleep overnight, treating them to French food and treats in her apartment. Papa is amazed at the quality of the food in the village and its availability and discovers that Marguerite made the food herself.

      Papa wanders around the idyllic town and discovers an abandoned restaurant building up for sale. It is located directly opposite the Michelin star restaurant ‘Le Saule Pleureur’. Pushy Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), the caretaker for the owners, asks the Kadams to leave because it is "private property". This incites Papa to buy the property, even though the rest of his family is not keen, and names the restaurant "Maison Mumbai". The town hasn’t got an upscale Indian restaurant so why not here?

      Mallory immediately feels threatened by the competition and ready for war, starting by asking them for a menu and then buying all the ingredients the Indians will need from the towns market on their opening night, resulting in papa and the cook taking a 50 mile round trip to the nearest town to get supplies. The war takes a step for the worse when, on Bastille Day, one of Mallory's chefs, Jean-Pierre (Clément Sibony), and two others, vandalize the Kadams' restaurant by spray-painting words which translate to "France for the French" on the wall and setting fire to the terrace, dragging back terrible memories for the family. The question now is can the two find common ground and cross the 100 steps between the two restaurants as Mallory bids for her second Michelin star and the handsome Hassan, now attracted to Marguerite, can find his dream of being a famous chef in Paris.


      ===Results===

      A film about cooking, racism and family ends up being a film skillet of all of these things and so the soufflé, alas, doesn’t rise for me. Its way too long at two hours plus around those topics and you soon start shuffling around waiting for it to get going. Every time it tries for meaning and making a point it backs of and goes off on another direction. It’s too sweet and cozy for most of it and so gets boring and the jokes falling flat. Mirren is funny but this is not a stretch for her. The Indian family pile cliché upon cliché in the film and the two dimensional Indians we see in every movie, a tactic to make us whiteys feel comfortable, watching the movie because of that tiresome compromise.

      It’s not as good as The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and I would try that on first, purely because it is funnier and more intelligent, whereas this is like an episode of a naff sitcom. The director clearly doesn’t want to offend Indian sensibilities and so rolls out those predictable wobbly head characters. Its good-natured and undemanding fun with those cartoon French and Indian characters but I wanted more than that in a movie that boasts a theme and context. The love of food side is brief and the romance also ‘dumbed down’ as the director clearly unsure whether he wants to risk that interracial kiss between an Indian guy and a white French girl. I’m struggling to recall that happening in many other films.

      Its $22m budget did a decent $88m back and shows the draw Mirren still has. She is a game girl and will give most things ago. Puri is miserable sod on screen and hard to enjoy and so Charlotte Le Bon as Marguerite an excellent foil of beauty and French fluffiness, Amelie style. The rest of the cast hit their straps as those predictable God fearing goodness gracious me rural Indians. I wasn’t expecting the film to explore themes of female infanticide or Muslim-Sikh rivalry but at least fill out their characters in film. I suspect the book the film is based on is far more superior. Dev Patel has done some good work in Lion but you always feel British Indian actors are restricted by those expected clichés in their performance.

      Independent –‘The Hundred-Foot Journey is a culinary culture-clash comedy enlivened by fiery performances from Helen Mirren and Om Puri but which, like so many other Lasse Hallström films, slowly turns to gloop the longer it lasts.

      Daily Telegraph –‘If The Hundred-Foot Journey ultimately proves no spicier than chicken tikka masala for the soul, that's Chef Lasse for you. At his comforting best - and this is close to it - nobody does it milder’.

      The Mail –‘... dishes out a mostly flavorful blend of comedy and drama, with a dash of poignancy, which helps to overcome its blander ingredients.

      Parallax View –‘… a film for our culture: a feel-foodie drama of racial tolerance, cross-cultural acceptance, and fusion cuisine.

      The List –‘This rather picaresque tale of an Indian family opening a restaurant in rural France never really indulges our senses’.

      Epoch Times –‘How wrong can you go shooting in the south of France? Or shooting Helen Mirren? Not with a gun. She can turn 103 and she'll still be alluring, even when she's being haughty’.

      Better than any android phone if compared, Its Worth It

      I have used both Android and ios phones and ios is alot better than Android. Iphone 6 fast A7 processor makes it better than other phones because it never lags or stucks like other phones do. It has a great 8 mp camera with the best result than any other phone. Its 4.7 inches screen makes it better to use with a resolution of 750x1334 pixels. The thing i dont like about it is it less memory which gets full very quickly and if you forget your i cloud password it gets locked and useless forever and its glass screen is very sensitive. It has the best battery life 1810 mAh which can end until 1 whole day using it excessively. It comes in four colours Gold,Rose Gold, Silver and Space Gray. It also comes with advanced scurity having a Fingerprint Lock. I would prefer Iphone 6 over Samsung Galaxy s6 or any other phone which competes with it.

      After the 2016 Oscars there was general disquiet within Black groups that black and Asian actors failed to receive any of the 20 acting nominations and none of the directing ones. Incredibly, at that point a black director had never won a directing Oscar. Black film themes also seemed to be ignored. This year The Academy were under huge pressure to promote black actors and directors this year and they almost swept the board. Wise directors like Barry Jenkins and Denzel Washington saw that reverse bias coming and rushed out Moonlight and Fences respectively to cash in, Jenkins becoming the first black director to win a Directing Oscar, Viola Davis winning for Fences. As far as the acting gongs go the makers of Straight Outta of Compton, Creed, Selma and Concussion, amongst others, seemed particular narked their films didn’t win anything last year. In my opinion neither of these films deserved the main Oscars - nor did many of the white actors and films that won. The Academy never get it right. Mrs Will Smith seemed very angry her husbands very average ‘issues’ film didn’t win and some say kick started the campaign for black talent to win Oscars because of that. But the problem is good box office doesn’t always mean they are good movies but simply popular and anticipated. ‘Straight Outta Compton’ would become the highest-grossing music biopic ever, beating Walk the Line (2005), another American dressed in black bad boy, and until the Oscar winning Moonlight, the highest grossing movie by a black director, somewhat surreally beating Scary Movie by director Keenen Ivory Wayans.

      The film, if you haven’t worked out, is the story of NWA (played by actors), the hardcore rap band that took America and the world by storm, their unfavorable lyrics towards the police and authority and the perceived promotion of violence in the black community making them extremely controversial. Rather ironically, despite the success of the movie, the film has not been screened in Compton because the city doesn't have a cinema due to regular shootings at them. Where the film debuted in 2015 there were extra police at the multiplexes in fear of gang violence, even though, as we know, most rap fans are white kids called Gaz and Darren. It always rankles with me that white kids like rap as most of it is about how much black people feel white people don’t like them. White rappers are just ridiculous, apart from Eminem, of course.

      Band members Eazy-E and M.C. Ren were the only members of NWA who belonged to a street gang, and were both members of the Kelly Park Compton Crips. They were friends long before NWA was formed and they gangbanged and sold drugs together before venturing into music with Ice Cube, DJ Yella, Dr Dre and Arabian Prince. Their seminal album Straight Outta of Compton put gangster rap on the commercial map and in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Ice Cubes real son, O'Shea Jackson Jr, was cast in the movie to play his dad.

      According to Wikipedia, On July 16, 2014, a casting call for extras for Straight Outta Compton was released on the Sande Alessi Casting Facebook page. The casting call was looking for sexy African-American girls using an A-D ranking scale. The 'A girls' category was looking for drop dead gorgeous 'classy' women of all colors; the 'B through D' categories were very explicitly linked with skin-tone. As the women get less attractive, the casting call wants the women's flesh tone to be darker, with the lowest listing calling for 'African American girls. Poor, not in good shape, medium to dark skin tone. Needless to say black and women’s groups were not happy about this but the publicity still maximized the amount of ‘honeys’ that turned up at the swimming pool auditions.

      The shoot was very real when that just seven days into filming in Compton, a drive-by shooting took place directly in front of the cast and crew members while they were on the set. A group of black kids standing outside the Compton Courthouse made gang signs at a passing car and passengers in the car opened fire on the group with real guns. No one from the film was injured, but one civilian near the set was shot in the leg. In 2015, Marion 'Suge' Knight, of Death Row Records, a notorious figure in the film and the gangster rap music scene, was involved in an infamous hit-and-run incident that left one dude dead and another hospitalized. Knight followed the black guys after an argument on the Straight Outta Compton film set to a burger joint parking lot in Compton and brutally ran them over. YouTube footage is damming and he may die in jail.

      ===Plot===

      It’s Compton, L.A in 1986…

      Eazy-E (Jason Mitchell) is a drug dealer, Dr. Dre (Corey Hawkins) is an aspiring DJ, and Ice Cube (O'Shea Jackson Jr) is a young rapper in the Compton Hood. Producer Dre is intrigued by Ice Cube's raps reflecting on the crime, gang violence, and police harassment that they and other African Americans suffer. Dre convinces Eazy-E to fund a startup indie record label, Ruthless Records, with Dre as producer, promoting local talent ignored by the mainly white West Coast music business. When their best song yet, "Boyz-n-the-Hood", is rejected by a New York rap group, Dr. Dre convinces Eazy-E to perform it instead. It becomes a local L.A hit, and Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, DJ Yella, and MC Ren form N.W.A ("Niggaz Wit Attitudes").

      Eazy-E is head hunted by Jewish record producer Jerry Heller (Paul Giamatti) who offers to manage N.W.A and co-run Ruthless Records, introducing Easy and the band to predominantly white Jewish run Priority Records, who offer N.W.A a deal. While recording their debut album, Straight Outta Compton (1988), the group are harassed by white cops for looking like gang bangers in a nice area and that inspires Ice Cube to write "F*ck the Police". It becomes a controversial hit with hug airplay and the media dub them as ‘gangsta rap’. It sends the group stratospheric as they pack big arenas around the world. The police and FBI are not happy with the lyrics and say they will be arrested if they use it on stage, which they do in 1989 concert in Detroit and a riot ensues.

      By now Easy, as co partner, is making the big bucks and the band members are not happy. Jerry knows by loading responsibility on to one of the band members it was easy to exploit them as friends and keeps delaying the individual members' contracts with Ruthless, and when he insists that Ice Cube sign without legal representation with a 75k cheque pay off for 3 years work, Ice Cube quits the group to go solo album with ‘AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted (1990)’ with Priority Records, becoming a big hit, but also stuffed by the record company and so he trashes their office.


      With N.W.A now huge and insulting Ice Cube on their next record, 100 Miles and Runnin' (1990), Ice responds with some anti Semitism in a track criticizing Jerry and his former bandmates. Tension rises between both parties and so Dr. Dre hires the notorious thug Suge Knight (R.Marcos Taylor) as his manager and the Nation of Islam as his security, through whom he learns that Jerry has indeed been underpaying him over the years. He would, of course, leave N.W.A to form Death Row Records with Suge.

      The film is OK but way too long. If you love the band and the music then you will enjoy this more than I did but still a bum twitcher. The original directors cut, which is included in the DVD packet on a separate disc, is three-and-a-half hours long! I quite like gangster rap and was in LA just after the riots and understand where the hate for the police is coming from, and indeed vice versa. If you have black skin in America you get dragged into this as the cops label you as one of the bad guys from day one. A lot of black kids don’t help by dressing the part. In those days even sports companies would get involved in gang colors with their sneakers designed for the various gang affiliations with rd and blue flashing. The black LA Raiders sports look was also an integral part of the gang look although not the now defunct Raiders fault.

      The movie cost $28 million dollars to make and did that record $200m plus back as fans packed the cinemas. The unknown actors are very good and re-recorded NWA's entire Straight Outta Compton album (with producer Harvey Mason Jr.) to help them get into character. The band and director clearly wanted to keep control of the bands image and message and the casting of Ice Cube son to play his dad a pointer to. Easy E’s son (one of seven kids from six different mothers) also thought he was going to play his dad in the film but missed out late on. This is a movie made by a black director who treasures the bands legacy and doesn’t want them to be trashed on screen by a white director.

      Apart from the booty call to cast the girls in the film the main controversy is how accurate director F Gary Gray’s movie is. The screenplay was written by two Jewish white Americans but a lot of the negative stuff on the band didn’t make the movie and so NWA glamorized because of. Scenes cut included Dr. Dre's infamous beating of journalist Dee Barnes, the incident where Dre was shot four times in the leg, and a graphic flashback of his younger brother's death. The film was also heavily criticized for omitting Dr. Dre's domestic abuse allegations. The violence the band members dish out in real life points to the point critics make that the band not only promote violence but dishes it out.

      F. Gary Gray said that Dre's rap sheet was "an avenue we decided not to go down". This film was clearly aimed at a black audience to celebrate their heroes. Nothing wrong with that as this is Hollywood but a more realistic and honest biopic would have made a better movie, why Selma, the film about Martin Luther King, was the better movie.

      Advantages

      • "Endless amount of gamemodes"
      • "Smooth and realistic gameplay"
      • "Brilliant graphics"

      Disadvantages

      • "Poor Physics"
      • "Lack of customization"
      • "No plot"
      • "DLCs cost a lot of money"

      Overall, the game is enjoyable and interesting, although it does feel incomplete sometimes.

      Star Wars Battlefront is one of a kind. The first that would undoubtedly catch your eye is the game's magnificent and rich-in-quality graphics. I was instantly immersed in the realistic and immersive game play of Battlefront. Another plus is the fact that I'm a massive Star Wars fan, which makes the game even more fun. Also, the heroes are really fun to use and even more fun to kill with, and you can have a blast with all of the different game modes to choose from, though it most of them are from the DLC packs. The game enables you to have awesome jump shots and multi-kills with practically all weapons. I cannot emphasize how enjoyable this game is.

      The DLC is quite expensive, though I'm sure you can get a season pass on sale. With the DLC, you can have intense close-quarters combat in the Death Star or the underground caves of the Outer Rim to large open-world chaos in Bespin and the Scarif and even larger space and air-combat in vehicles.

      Conversely, the game does have a few let downs. The physics of the game are sub par, making you need a jump-pack in almost every loadout. As well as this, there are quite a few glitches which certain players tend to exploit; this can become stressful and annoying sometimes. However, DICE is known to patch these glitches quickly. The game has no storyline, which will undoubtedly bore people who aren't fans of Star Wars. There is a lack of offline content, but I'm sure most people will be able to deal with this.

      So Phoenix, adapted from the 1965 book "Le Retour des cendres / Return from the ashes" by Hubert Monteilhet. This often mesmerizing film is directed by Christian Petzold and yet another one of those Holocaust movies the critics loved. They usually do well at The Oscars because of the subject matter and Hollywood’s Jewish providence but this one well worthy of that attention but sadly missed out on a nomination. This is the fifth out of Christian Petzold's seven feature films to feature striking actress Nina Hoss, who is brilliant and distinctive in the films I have seen her. It's Pretzold’s second film in a row after Barbara (2012) to star Hoss and Ronald Zehrfeld in the leading roles. This is an Oscar winning performance by her but subtitles put paid to that.

      ===Plot===

      Nelly Lenz (Hoss), a Holocaust survivor and Jewish cabaret singer, is terribly disfigured from the death camps as the fleeing Nazis did terrible things to them in one last act of hatred. Her face is heavily bandaged from a shotgun round and we can only imagine the terrible damage as they cross the border into Switzerland to have reconstructive surgery after the war. Although Nelly tells the surgeon that she would like to look exactly as she used to, he is unable to recreate her old face and beauty completely and Nelly is disappointed with the final result. The mental and physical scars may heal but it will take sometime.

      With her best friend Lene (Nina Kunzendorf) thy return to Berlin so she can convalesce in peace. Since Nelly's family members all died during the war, Nelly has inherited a considerable amount cash and property and so that has to be dealt with. Lene suggests to Nelly that she cash in the money and houses and they travel to Palestine to be as far away from the Nazi as possible. She believes they will be safe there and can help with the creation of an independent Jewish state.

      Nelly is married and learns that her musician husband Johnny (Ronald Zehrfeld) is alive and well in Berlin, and that may have been the one to betray her to the Nazis as she was discovered in an Anne Frank style hidden compartment. Nelly denies this is a possibility but doesn’t want to believe it so seeks him out.

      Johnny is working in a nightclub called The Phoenix. Nelly dos not reveal her identity to him as he fails to recognize her post surgery and so she has to accept that she no longer exists as Nelly although Johnny points at that she bears an uncanny resemblance to his late wife, who he believes dead in the camps and not very mournful for her.

      After a couple of visits to him at the club, events take a turn for the surreal. He tells her in order to obtain his wife's inheritance, he asks Nelly to impersonate his wife. Shocked at first Nelly (calling herself Esther) realizes this is the only way to get close to him so to find out if he betrayed her. It may also agitate feelings in him for Nelly and maybe he will somehow fall in love with her again.

      Johnny slowly transforms Esther into Nelly through hr clothing, the look and manner, before her arrest by the Nazis. If they can convince the authorities she has returned alive from the camps they can split the money. Lene is not happy and continues to warn Nelly that Johnny was possibly complicit in her arrest. Nelly, as Esther, questions Johnny about his feelings for his wife and his behavior at the time of her arrest. She just can’t believe he would betray and wish her dead for her money. But Johnny just doesn’t want to go there. He has a plan for Esther and she agrees to go along with it, picking her moment for the big reveal, if he doesn’t twig first.

      I really enjoyed this film and one of the most mesmerizing performances I have seen for a while. Nina Hoss is quite brilliant. She loves this guy who clearly only loved her beauty and cabaret lifestyle and yet she can’t reveal who she really is as he may have betrayed her so he must be taught a crueler lesson. The nuances performance is electrified as she tries to get him to fall in love with the new version of her as his only redemption on offer. The final reveal is one of cinemas best moments to date. You are built up to salivate for this sweet moment of revenge through the film.

      There is some artistic license taken here as it’s only her face that has changed and her husband should at least recognize her voice, figure and mannerism, the ones he is trying to install in her somewhat quicker. Yes she teases him to recognize her in various ways and the handwriting scene also very good but it does stretch the premise somewhat at times. Saying that it does play into the narrative and that heightens that tension to the eventual and thrilling reveal.

      As a film its all about Hoss and you will be gripped by her and the performance, this movie having an old style classic movie feel about it. The post war look is authentic and Nina Kunzendorf as her best friend who went through the same horrors is very good as the conscious of the film. It’s not a holocaust movie in the traditional sense as we see no Nazis or the camps and very much an unseen menace and terrible memories with no flashback sequences.

      This is an inverted love story around a brilliant idea. I believe some films have done something similar but I haven’t seen them and so why this film worked well for me. It did a feeble £5.5 million for what it is and lost money by the time it hit DVD. Such an intriguing and emotive film deserves more attention. I recommend you guys should watch this just for Hoss’s incredible performance, exploiting what love really is and how quickly it can die. Sadly, handsome men rarely date ugly older women and pretty women will always marry rich older and ugly men.

      It took me 10-years to discover Entourage and a great example of how many of us miss out on good shows buried on cable. Unless they are very special like Breaking Bad, you never here about them. I have to research a lot online to find the best stuff, Narcos and The Newsroom next on the pile to watch. Because Entourage was such a big hit a grueling 8 seasons where knocked out in 8-years to cash in and so the much loved cast unable to really cash in themselves on their fame with films and projects in the gaps. None of the main four have gone on to do anything of note on that score, I can recall. Very rarely are you watching films and saying ‘hey, that’s the guy from Entourage?’ Jeremy Piven is the star of Entourage,, of course with his brilliant agent character and has gone on to do some good stuff.

      If you haven’t seen the show - which is quite a lot of you - it’s basically a cross between The Larry Sanders Show and Curb Your Enthusiasm, about three friends, Eric (Kevin Connolly), Johnny 'Drama' (Kevin Dillion) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara), who pitch up in Hollywood to support their boy Vinnie Chase (Adrian Grenier) movie career shot, following the foursome’s wild adventures in Hollywood thereafter. There are tons of tongue-in-cheek celebrity cameos throughout the eight series as just about everyone sends themselves up. It’s produced by Mark Wahlberg and based on his and his friends early experiences on pitching up from Boston to break Hollywood.

      ===Plot===

      Vince (Adrian Grenier) is forced into a dangerous stunt on an action movie by headcase director Nick Cassavetes, setting the tone for the season that Vince will be taking more decisions in his life from now on and so have more fun, like cutting his hair short, popping pills and dating porn actress Sasha Grey ( herself).

      Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) is now running a fledgling car service business using beautiful girls to run people around L.A. He has a crush on one of them, Latina hothead Alex (Dania Ramirez), but has to fire her because she is terrible at the job. Vince’s dimwit TV star brother Drama (Kevin Dillon) also needs a new job since his holding deal will expire in eight weeks, but his agent Lloyd (Rex Lee) and booking manager Phil (Will Fitchner) have not been forthcoming about his prospects.

      Ari’s brand new desk assistant suggests he try to get NFL TV rights now their agency is the biggest in America. Drama continues to panic over finding a job, so Eric (Kevin Connolly) offers to go through scripts with him while Eric also faces his own problems in the form of colleague, Scott Lavin (Scott Caan) who is courting client Vinnie Chase to further his career in another direction. Meanwhile Turtles corporate card is charged $10,000 by Tiffany’s and sacked Alex is the main suspect.

      Drama snubs the idea of being in another sitcom, but some convincing from Eric and Phil start to change his mind. Co - Agency Director Barbara Miller (Beverly D'Angelo) demands Ari (Piven) promotes Lizzie Grant (Autumn Reece) to head of TV talent but Ari refuses and so Lizzie walks. Turtles business folds whilst the slimy Scott Lavin continues to ingratiate himself with Vince career, upsetting E some more.

      Alex and Turtle are now friends and she invites him to Mexico for a new business opportunity with her Uncle, uncertain of her intentions, but goes along with it since he needs the money. Her uncle (Rodrigo Dias) wants to sell his home recipe tequila in America and use Vincent Chas on the label. John Stamos (himself) is at Vince's house to convince Drama to be his co-star but Drama trounces him at ping pong to upset him, meaning Bob Segat (himself) may get the job instead. Ari attempts to make up with Lizzie on good terms, with no success, but a meeting with some of Hollywood's elite to bring the NFL back to LA looks very nice for him. Eric makes up with Scott to try and get back onside with Vince, Chase increasingly going off the rails with his porn star girlfriend and Turtles tequila.

      Lizzie has a job with another agent now and starts to try and steal Ari’s clients, Jessica Alba, Aaron Sorkin and Mike Tyson getting their heads turned. Much to Eric and Ari's dismay, Vince jeopardizes his career with a risqué drunken online video advertising the tequila on his Twitter page.
      A cleaned up Billy Walsh (Rhys Coiro) is back on the scene and asking Eric for help in restarting his career after the disastrous Medellin movie. Eric and Billy also present an idea for Johnny Drama, who's been in a sulk since the Segat let down. Ari finds his NFL deal in jeopardy when he realizes that Lizzie – with Amanda's help – could sue him for wrongful termination, among other things after a tape of insults emerges on Buzzfeed.

      Sticking with Entourage is like not wanting to dump a girlfriend you are bored of because she is still pretty and kept her figure. You need and like to be seen with it and so you go back for more, knowing you will get the same. My plan here to avoid that ennui was to have a big break between season six and seven as I had watched the first six series in two years. To an extent that has worked because I enjoyed this more than I did season 6. There was no doubt this show had done its best work by season 4 ending and so greedy to expect it to improve again. Drug addicts say their first hit of heroin is the best they ever had and so you chase that hit thereafter taking more and more never to get near it again. It’s like that with a great TV series like this. I enjoy Entourage but five series would have been enough. It’s seriously diluted by season 7.

      As usual its one long ladmag fantasy onscreen with beautiful girls in next to nothing in most scenes and those perfunctory Entourage celebrity cameos coming thick and fast. Turtle has lost weight and more mature and so no longer the shows whipping boy and so a lost comic dimension there and the fact they all have their own thing going on means the camaraderie that made this show so appealing has withered. This series is all about Vince feckless decline, perhaps a subliminal confession by the writers the series had run too far.

      The break did me good though and I enjoyed it enough to order season 8 and the final series (although I’m steering clear of the movie). Its funny in places and you still enjoy the guys company and celebrity cameos and perhaps more pleasing this time as you are savoring the last of your fix. Its no where near as good as it was, of course, but that’s still puts it above most US comedy. If you think the Big Bang Theory is Americas biggest comedy show from the last five years you know how low the bar has been set.

      The Mail –‘"Entourage" is showing its age, but still offers a reliable dose of frat-boy humor and Hollywood-style hilarity’

      Entertainment Weekly –‘Yes, Entourage has become somewhat predictable. But that can be a good thing, since it means it's reliably quick, verbally nimble, and casually vicious about the Hollywood world in which it revels’.

      Time Magazine –‘Entourage continues to coast in the same zone of amiable purposelessness in which it's spent the last few seasons’.

      Washington Post –‘"Entourage" is chronically allergic to momentum. It is change-phobic. It's pretty to look at, but stagnant all the same’.

      Star.com –‘With all of the main characters and supporting players involved in more and more peripheral pursuits, there is little time for the four friends to get together to shoot the breeze, meet some babes, or just have some fun’.

      Advantages

      • "Very customizable."

      Disadvantages

      • "Waiting time."

      Simplistic , easy to use and fun.

      Tiny Towers is a very fun game . You can customize every thing in the game from the elevator to the people . It is user friendly . It has nice retro graphics . The tower itself can grow to over one hundred and fifty floors . In every floor you can build different things like apartments , fast foods , entertainment floors and other things . With every floor that you build you can get money to build more floors . The bad thing about this wonderful game is that you need to wait an period of time to build a floor or to restock . It is a very nice simulated world . It is easy to use .

      I like this game and I recommend it for it's simplicity .

      I bought a Kodak printer. I printed pictures from one banner which was fine. I am very surprised as my printer is so good.
