We hope to bring you more on this film as time goes on.
With claustrophobic overtones the trailer for British Thriller Containment is one we could not ignore. The principle of being locked into your own abode is one few people will have thought of but after viewing the one minute forty-eight seconds below I'm sure you will be thinking about it tonight.
We hope to bring you more on this film as time goes on.
Mark, a failed artist estranged from his wife and son, wakes one morning to discover that the doors and windows of his flat have been sealed shut. He assumes it’s a sick joke until he sees an army of ‘Hazmats’ – mysterious figures in protective suits – patrolling the grounds and snatching his fellow residents. When a neighbour smashes through their adjoining wall, Mark joins forces with his new-found ally and others from within the block. Together, they must work to defend themselves from the sinister Hazmats, but when they discover that the real danger is trapped inside the building, tempers fray and fear takes over. Loyalties are tested to their limits as friends and families turn against each other in an adrenaline-fuelled fight for survival.
Cmoar Smartphone Viewer – one device offering 2D cinema, 3D cinema, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality – preparing to hit the market!
After a big success at E3 this year, where Cmoar Smartphone Viewer was firstly revealed, Cmoar Ltd. - the company behind it, is now prepared to make the final step that will allow the team to complete the work on the device and release it on the market. One last thing missing though is the community support and to get it the company decided to start a Kickstarter campaign to make Cmoar Smartphone Viewer a reality.
Ever since VR devices started appearing on the market it was Cmoar Ltd. CEO – Damian Boczek’s dream, to create one universal device that will offer all the features that until now were available separately. Moreover his main goal was also to deliver something that will not only look good but also would be available for a reasonable price and affordable for an average gamer or cinema fan. After over a year of developing ideas and prototyping, something that was once a dream, is finally becoming a reality.

We will as always try not to spoil major story points but you may find small spoilers for Season 1, 2 and 3
The players in the battle are the Sheriff Eric Norseman and the 300 year old Russell Edgington. This whole premise shines a rather bright light on the enigmatic Norseman that is Eric, we have already seen his softer side where his maker Godric was concerned but this is something different. This concerns his life before he was made into a Vampire, it’s a great insight and helps give Eric some semblance of humanity. Russell on the other hand is just a touch of the eccentric and he helps to add a menace and a huge dose of humour all in one person. As you can see from the attached photo he is something of an old school gent on the surface but underneath is the (non) beating heart of an agent for change. His agenda has quite frankly the worst possible outcome for humanity but it makes complete sense from a Vampire’s point of view.
Russell is a King, in the Vampire world that gives him power over all the others of his kind within a set area. His domain is Mississippi (spelt right on the first attempt) and due to his desires he is looking for a way to grow his dominion and sees Queen Sophie Ann of Louisiana as the ideal candidate. We have met the Queen before she is another larger than life character but one who believes in her own value a little too much. The inter-relationships we see between many of the Vampires is all due to her but in many ways she is just the igniter for the real Key of Sookie.
There is something quite amazing about Miss Stackhouse and this is the season where we get to find out what this really means. We all now she is supernatural due to her ability to hear thoughts and the light that shoots out of her hands at the sign of trouble but the revelation of her heritage is a little odd to say the least. It sets up quite a bit for the future but what it really does is emphasise that we really have no idea exactly where this series can go and that is a large part of the charm of this series.

Why the opening credits matter.
The credits do give the creators and actors their due and with a large ensemble cast such as Game of Thrones the opening sequence will always be longer. However the fact the producers cared enough to create a dynamic opening still pleaese me to this day. It may be a chore to sit through on occasion but it could be just as long with a duller background (at a lower price).
The three visitors of Tyrion Lannister
Back in season one Tyrion was being tried in a biased court so he turned to the one form of trial where he had an even chance of winning; A trail by combat. Of course it was only even as he paid a sell sword to fight for him. Now after his outburst at the trial he is going to roll the dice again but at least this time his first choice is close to hand.
Cersei in her desperation to destroy Tyrion played her trump card by calling on The Mountain to be her champion, this makes sense as Bronn commented "he is freakishly big and strong and fast than you would think for a man of his size". There is however one man in Kings Landing who is desperate to destroy the Lannister’s and starting with the Mountain makes perfect sense. That man is Prince Oberon of Dorn, from his very first conversation with Tyrion he described his desire to kill the killer of his sister and her children, now it looks like he will get the opportunity to fulfil his dream. The conversation with Tyrion is pretty much lifted from the book as Oberon describes his first ever meeting with the Lannister monster. As he describes though the freak was a disappointment as he was not a monster just a baby. As he offers to be Tyrion’s champion the look of vengeance is plain to see and it looks like we will finally get to see the Red Viper of Dorn in full on combat for the first time. This is shaping up to be the fight of the series and I cannot wait to see it.
Not all birds can fly
Although a lot more went on this show we will dive into that later as we have a two week break till the next episode. The pawns have moved and now the true strength pieces of the board are beginning to make their move, lets hope they are able to the realms justice.
Knowing the way the game is played I'm pretty sure they will.

I am a cartoon fan and always have been but nowadays my interest for cartoons has increased thanks to my son. So I will try to look at this app from both my eyes and his, I firmly believe that Pokémon is an all ages product so the ability for my son to access the content is an important part of this apps success. He will be the player of tomorrow and for any franchise to grow they need new blood buying into their product. This is perhaps the apps greatest triumph, it’s so easy to use and navigate that anyone could potentially access the content. There are no sub menus or search functions instead the episodes are laid out in a sliding grid structure.
The rows are structured by region instead of by season, with around 700 episodes of Pokémon to handle the organisation was going to be an issue. I’m not sure if this structure works better than the straight season structure but it does allow the creators to pick and choose episodes more freely. The app actually has 42 episodes which are updated weekly so you have to be on your toes to catch them all (sorry could not resist). There are also special episodes from time to time but at the time of writing none were available to comment on
I would like a way to see the episodes that you have watched even on a weekly basis. There is no colour change or notification to say you have watched it or a list. It is not essential but would give the user experience a boost. There is a large advertising bar on the top of the page, but it does not seem to lead to anywhere where you can buy things. Instead it promotes the new shows on Citv (in the UK) and the games currently on sale. This is a minor issue but I felt it should be noted. However for a free app it is very unobtrusive and you are by no means ever bombarded with adverts.
I have used the app on both my Note3 and Galaxy Tab 2 and found it works well on both. There was an odd glitch when I first downloaded the app it kept crashing on the loading screen, however once I restarted my and tab I have never had another function problem. Not sure why this happens or if it has been fixed when you read this but just something I think you all should know.
The simplistic presentation mixed with the huge back catalogue of content make the Pokémon App one of the easiest recommendations I have ever made, Go download it now.
