Fates converge under a cinema marquis, where Shosanna is poised to carry out a revenge plan of her own....

Employing pulp and propaganda in equal measure, Quentin Tarantino's INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS weaves together the infamous, oppressed, real and larger-than-life stories of World War II.

The Time Travelers Wife,movie, Audrey Niffenegger

The film based on Audrey Niffenegger's stunning debut novel The Time Traveler's Wife, directed by Robert Schwentke and stars Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams.

Henry De Tamble has an unusual disability. He suffers from Chrono Displacement Disorder. Henry barrels through time, unburdened by clothing or possessions, landing, totally unprepared, for wherever and whatever time's whimsy has prepared for him. Imagine landing totally naked in the middle of a brutal Michigan winter, amongst strangers, ten years in the future? Or twenty years in the past? Henry has been experiencing situations like these since he was five years old when he visited the Chicago Field Museum of Natural History at midnight, while his parents slept unaware that their tiny traveler had slipped through time's warp. He has even gone forward in time to accompany an older self, and gone backwards to comfort the small boy who he once was. Forever at the mercy of his unpredictable genetic clock, he longs to lead a normal life.

It is during one of Henry's amazing time travels that he meets the precocious and engaging Clare, who is six years old. He is thirty-six at the time. Of course, having foresight and hindsight, Henry knows that he and Clare will marry one day, when she is twenty and he is twenty-eight. And so begins the extraordinary and enchanting relationship between Henry and Clare. Clare will learn to cope with a lifetime of Henry's bewildering disappearances and reappearances, with a world that can change in a heartbeat, in exchange for being with her soulmate, for a time. Henry's disability will sorely test their relationship, and each of them as individuals.

Set a few years after the defeat of Megatron in the first game/movie, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen reveals that the threat from the Decepticons is in fact, far from ended. Since the time of the epic and apparently not so final battle between the two Transformer leaders, Decepticons have started popping up again all over Earth in alarming numbers. And now, a mysterious object from space seems destined to shift the balance of power and give the upper hand to the Decepticons.

Similar to the game based on the first movie, Revenge of the Fallen will feature two separate campaigns; one depicting the actions of the Autobots, and the other the actions of the Decepticons. The game will expand on the movie plot with additional missions and characters. Unlike its predecessor, Revenge of the Fallen will feature a hub-like, non-linear mission progression; allowing the player to choose what missions they would like to accomplish and where in order to further drive the story.

Control Points features gameplay similar to the Star Wars Battlefront series, with teams battling for control of specific areas to gain points. One Shall Stand is similar to Team Deathmatch; the difference being that the sole objective is to take out the enemy leader (Optimus Prime or Megatron) while protecting your own. Finally Battle for the Shards featuring Capture the Flag-style gameplay; teams search for shards of the allspark and return them to their base to earn points.

video game, terminator salvation

Terminator Salvation is a third-person shooter action video game based on the film of the same name from Warner Bros. It is developed by the Halcyon Company's gaming subsidiary, Halcyon Games, along with GRIN and published by Equity Games and Evolved Games.The game was released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, mobile, and iPhone OS.

Set in 2016 in Los Angeles, it is an interquel that takes place between the events of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator Salvation and follows John Connor (Gideon Emery), and his team, consisting of Angie Salter (Rose McGowan), Barnes (Common) and Blair Williams (Moon Blood good). However, Christian Bale refused to lend his voice and likeness for the game. Rose McGowan is in the game as well, voicing the game-exclusive character Angie Salter, who is an ex-high school teacher. On the other hand, Common and Moon Blood good are voicing their own characters from the film (Barnes and Blair, respectively).

For those who wondering, the gameplay format mirrors that of 'Kane + Lynch'. Except here you also get to shoot flying machines out of the sky from moving vehicles. This game is actually very challenging, and until you get used to the cover system, very similar to 'Wanted' as you can also blind-fire around objects, it may take a few tries. The PS vibration controller makes the War extremely intense; feel each step the giant HKs' make!

The sound is superb, easily one of the most exciting scores I've heard in awhile. Sound effects in surround sound lands, you in the middle of the post-apocalyptic 'Terminator' universe.

Platform : Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, mobile, and iPhone OS

Public Enemies, movie,universal pictures

In the action - thriller Public Enemies, acclaimed filmmaker Michael Mann directs Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard in the story of legendary Depression-era outlaw John Dillinger (Depp) - the charismatic bank robber whose lightning raids made him the number one target of J. Edger Hoover's fledgling FBI its top agent, Melvin Purvis (Bale), and a folk hero to much of the public.

No one could stop Dillinger and his gang. No jail could hold him. His charm and audacious jailbreaks endeared him to almost everyone-from his girlfriend Billie Frechette (Cotillard) to an American public who had no sympathy for the banks that had plunged the country into the Depression.

But while the adventures of Dillinger’s gang - later including the sociopathic Baby Face Nelson (Stephen Graham) and Alvin Karpis (Giovanni Ribisi)-thrilled many, Hoover (Billy Crudup) hit on the idea of exploiting the outlaw's capture as a way to elevate his Bureau of investigation into the national police force that became the FBI. He made Dillinger America's first Public Enemy Number One and sent in Purvis, the dashing "Clark Gable of the FBI."

However, Dillinger and his gang outwitted and outgunned Purvis' men in wild chases and shootouts. Only after importing a crew of Western ex-lawmen (newly baptized as agents) and orchestrating epic betrayals-from the infamous "Lady in Red" to the Chicago crime boss Frank Nitti-were Purvis, the FBI and their new crew of gunfighters able to close in on Dillinger.

Outcast,Aaron Allston, star wars,Fate of the JediThis is the first novel in the Fate of the Jedi 9 book series (A new series of Star Wars) in which the Jedi have fallen into disgrace as the government and the public believe they are not held accountable for their actions.

The Jedi are mistrusted and certain of them are suffering psychotic breaks, and Luke Skywalker is accused of dereliction of duty for failing to stop Jacen Solo before he became Darth Caedus, so he is being partially blamed for everything Jacen did during the Second Galactic Civil War. A stunning opening to what looks to be an amazing new series!

Luke knows the charges are somewhat true and bargains with Chief of State Daala to avoid going to prison. Luke accepts exile for 10 years from Coursant and the Jedi Order. The only chance Luke has of returning before the completion of the 10 years is to discover what caused Jacen to turn to the Dark Side. Luke and his son, Ben (also a Jedi) begin traveling the galaxy to find where all Jacen went during his five year travels to visit different Force-users, trying to learn what caused Jacen to go to the Dark Side. They begin with visiting the planet Dorin, the home of the Kel Dors, the people Jedi Master Plo Koon belonged to. There, Luke begins his quest to determine what all Jacen learned during his travels.

Han and Leia, with their granddaughter Alanna (also known as Amelia) travel to Kesssl to help Lando save his mining enterprise for dangerous ground quakes that are threatening to tear the planet apart.

The Jedi are all assigned government observers to follow their movements and restrict their usefulness.

Jag Fel and Jaina Solo have fallen in love and are having secret meetings. This story line is going to be very, very interesting.

Batman, Arkham Asylum, Video Game, xbox 360, playstation,pc

This video game is based on DC Comics' Batman. It is being developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Eidos Interactive in conjunction with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics.

The game begins with Batman capturing the Joker after his latest plot, escorting him to Arkham Asylum for imprisonment where, due to the Joker's recent attack on Gotham's Blackgate prison, a large number of sane convicts have been transferred. However, the Joker, with the help of Harley Quinn, frees all the inmates and closes the asylum with Batman and Commissioner Gordon inside, threatening to detonate bombs all around Gotham if someone tries to enter the building. Batman must uncover the full extent of the Joker's plan while contending with the horrors of Arkham.

The game has a more closed gameplay atmosphere. In a description by Game Informer, the gameplay is reminiscent of BioShock. Gameplay places just as much focus on Batman's role as a detective as his combat prowess. Most of the game is played from Batman's perspective through an over-the-shoulder, third person perspective, similar to that of Resident Evil 4 and Dead Space.[6] It has been hinted that certain villains might be playable at some point in the game although this may be as an unlockable element after completing the game.

Arkham was chosen as a location because of its limitations including the fact that it's located on an island. Arkham will be a persistent location that the player is able to freely roam, including an area that serves as Batman's secret on-site Bat Cave. Arkham will make use of Batman's many gadgets to accomplish tasks and take down foes, such as using the grapple gun to get a better perspective on a particular area.

Some boss battles are focused on combat while others will focus on gadgets. Combat description features Batman perched on a high ledge in a wide open room as he watches some of the Joker's thugs rifle through drawers. Batman switches to investigation mode using a blue tinted visor that among other things lets Batman see his enemies through walls and identifies things like guns and knives. One thug is carrying a machine gun, so Batman jumps off the ledge, spreads his cape, and stuns him. He then swipes his cape to stun his other enemies and engages them in combat. FreeFlow Combat is accomplished using only three buttons: Attack, Stun and Takedown.

Batman descends on Victor Zsasz. During battle, a combo multiplier at the top of the screen will increase with every strike. Once the combo expires, a colony of bats will swirl around Batman and then contribute to an experience bar on the left side of the screen. In an RPG-like skill tree system players will be able to distribute points where they prefer. Gadgets are revealed by collecting items in secret rooms, and they can be upgraded using accumulated experience points to access new areas. The player will need gadgets to survive against certain enemies. There are sections that involve stealth, although the developers state that they prefer to call them "Predatory" gameplay sections, as stealth tends to imply weakness. Batman can create distractions with bodies and victims' yells, and then stalk the guards as they go to inspect. The combat experience is heightened using realistic physics.

Platform : Microsoft Windows, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360

Mark Levin has placed in plain words the true nature of humanity, our imperfections and the best way we can arrange ourselves.

Liberty and Tyranny. Our situation is summed up quite exactly in those words. Too often people regard freedom as to have all desires fulfilled. But freedom is really just being without external force, to be entirely subject to your own ambitions, goals, desires, and actions.

Tyranny, on the other hand, in all its forms is the removal of self-government and the right to choose from individuals. In this regard we are a nation of soft slavery, where the produced value of some is taken and appropriated to other people. In the words of Walter Williams, there is no moral justification for taking property from someone to whom it belongs and giving it to someone to whom it does not belong. In instance after instance, Mark's book lays out the case that these liberties have been under grievous assault for decades and that our rights are slipping away. We should heed his warning and his advice and refuse to die by 1000 cuts.

Stand up for yourself. Demand an end to the oppression of a progressive tax code, which costs billions in wasted effort on paperwork and administration. Stand up against the enviro-nazis who spend every waking moment, subsidized by authoritarians, figuring out ways to limit what you may do with your own property. Stand up against the education bureaucracy and higher education cartels. They don't teach universally. By and large the education centers in this nation have become locations of indoctrination. Study for yourself what your rights are. Learn to defend them against these committee tyrants. Stand up against the race business. People in America are more equipped and more capable of success if only told, just once that they CAN succeed. Stand up against those who desire, perhaps even with good intention, to organize all rationing of health care with the arbitrary iron fist of government. Stand up against the regulation of private business, in every industry. Stand up against the controls government tries to wield over prices, products, consumers, producers, sellers, and movers.

Stand up for your liberty while you still have the ability. Mark's book is the best starting point from which to launch an independent education of human nature, the justice of liberty and the injustice of tyranny.
