MANNY! The film that introduced many of us to German cinema and the lovely Franka Potente, this imaginative crime story is told in three parts. Young Lola tries to help her boyfriend fix a problem involving mobsters, but makes some mistakes along the way. Will time bend around her to help her learn from her mistakes?
Meltdown! Kaiser! Spectre! How bad are these security threats? How much will they slowdown YOUR PC? We’ve got more info on these issues, and links to press releases and industry analysis. Buckle up folks! 2018 is off to a rocky start for the entire computing industry!
A terrible start for 2018 and Intel. A security flaw was discovered in Intel hardware, and the fix could be VERY costly. Depending on what processor is in your computer, you might see performance losses anywhere from 5% to 30%. Yikes. And yes, even you Mac users will be affected. Here’s the scoop on Intel’s Kernel Security flaw. Pretty sure my next PC build will be an AMD…
If you’re a fan of theatre, you’ll be a fan of Noises Off! A loving look at the crazy that happens both on stage and back stage of a production, with an incredible cast, and incredible writing. The show must go on!
ZTE Axon M Review! The most experimental phone of the year! Are two screens really better than one? Following the success of the Axon 7, ZTE took an unexpected turn with their top phone for 2017. Large phablet phones are all the rage. Big screens are excellent for media and entertainment. Is a foldable phone even better? We spent some time putting the Axon M through its paces, and now it’s time to share our thoughts!
Just for fun, this was my favorite shot from the review…
Mathieu Kassovitz (The Crimson Rivers) took the film world by storm with La haine (Hate), a gritty, unsettling, and visually explosive look at racial and cultural volatility in modern-day France, specifically the low-income banlieues on Paris’s outskirts. Aimlessly passing their days in the concrete environs of their dead-end suburbia, Vinz, Hubert, and Saïd. White, Black, and Arab, they give human faces to France’s immigrant and marginalized populations. Their resentment simmering until it reaches a boiling point. A work of tough beauty, La Haine is a landmark of contemporary French cinema and a gripping reflection of its country’s ongoing identity crisis.
