It seems inevitable that going to the movies will be a thing of the past. It costs at least $10 to go and see a movie, and you can get an entire month of Netflix for less than that. But then factor in all the other costs associated with going to the movies, and it doesn’t seem like a viable option any more. That’s not to say that it’s not fun or enjoyable. But it’s hard to justify paying that kind of price when you can get some pretty amazing tech in your home. There are much larger TV screens than ever before. With much improved picture quality, and improvements in speaker systems. Which makes the difference between watching it at a theatre and viewing it in your home, narrow.
But MoviePass is trying to get you back into the theatre. What exactly is MoviePass? How does it work? And how can it save you money? Read on, friends to find out everything you need to know about MoviePass.
- MoviePass is a subscription based service. For a monthly fee, subscribers can watch up to one film per day in participating movie theatres.
- The company started in 2011 in New York. Initially users could print off vouchers and redeem them for tickets. Interest remained relatively low until October 2012, when a subscription model replaced the voucher system.
Over all MoviePass wasn’t doing well. By the end of 2016, the service still only had 20,000 subscribers. … Read the rest
The Blade Runner sequel is expected to make it’s debut on October 6th. The first of the three Blade Runner 2049 shorts dropped in order to bridge the gap between the events of the 1982 film and the upcoming film. The original film actually left off in 2019, and the new film will be set 20 years later. The new film will be directed by Denis Villeneuve and follows Niander Wallace (played by Jared Leto). Wallace has created a new series of replicants, the Nexus 9, which are a step above those in the original movie. It’s been 13 years since the replicant prohibition has been enacted and Wallace wants it repealed.
The above video, however, isn’t that short. But it provides a great glimpse into the upcoming film. During a presentation made by Warner Brothers during Comic-Con, they flashed a fun timeline showing key events between both Blade Runner films. The timeline, as seen below reveals the following about the road to 2049:
2018: Replicants are declared illegal under penalty of death following a bloody mutiny.
2019: Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) and a prototype Replicant named Rachel abscond from Los Angeles together.
2030s: Wallace, who now owns the Tyrell Corporation, uses genetic engineering to make Replicants more obedient and easier to control.… Read the rest

Korg Gadget: Best iOS Music Making App
With over 20 miniature synths and a fantastic music production workflow, Korg Gadget is the best when it comes to music making apps on iOS. Each synth has its own flavour, which gives you anything from drum machines and delicate bells to monster bass and searching chip-tune screeches. To lay down tracks, you record live or tap out notes on a piano roll. Your loops are then arranged into “scenes”, which enables you to construct entire songs in a manner that makes GarageBand’s equivalent features seem extremely archaic.
Model 15: Best iOS Synth
One of the best things about iOS has been developers enabling you to get your hands on recreations of classic synths for peanuts. You might think that’s a ludacris statement given the cost, but that’s a far cry from the hardware reissue that was priced at approximately $10,000. And what you get for your money, is, the best synth on the platform. Model 15 is a superb mix of the old and the new. … Read the rest
