Christopher Nolan tried to make a scientific fictional movie but in near future, it might become a reality.Interstellar explains earth may become an inhabitable planet and in order to save humanity from extinction, we may need to search for a nearby planet where life is possible. Everything and anything portrayed in this movie is not random incidents made for the sake of the movie. They are all paradox theories among which one of the concepts was recently proven. The existence of a black hole proven in recent times

Interstellar plot

(ref: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0816692/plotsummary)

A team of scientists must find the human race a new home after Earth is struck with worldwide food shortfalls and corn is the most valuable food. Using a mysterious wormhole, they explore strange new worlds and could find a home to save the human race.

N.A.S.A.’s last hope looks to Coop, Brand, Romilly, and TARS under the direction of Professor Brand to search for answers in the deepest corners of space while dealing with Murphy’s Law. 

In Earth’s future, a global crop blight and second Dust Bowl are slowly rendering the planet uninhabitable. Professor Brand, a brilliant N.A.S.A. physicist, is working on plans to save mankind by transporting Earth’s population to a new home via a wormhole. But first, Brand must send former N.A.S.A. pilot Cooper and a team of researchers through the wormhole and across the galaxy to find out which of three planets could be mankind’s new home.

Wormhole

The first breakthrough in the movie was the gravitational anomaly that cooper witnesses but it will be explained later wormhole is the passage in space due to the presence of singularity. Consider the space as a tight spreadsheet when a mass is kept over it there is a bulge in the sheet.

A black hole has the highest mass thus the presence of a black hole may result in a bulge in the sheet. Considering this phenomenon there is a lesser gap between 2 parallel layers creating a wormhole which refuses the actual time traveling from one  parallel space to another

Blackhole

The second breakdown is the Nolans portrayal of the black hole. It was quite a surprise it was similar to the real one discovered in recent times. This is because he studied the characteristics of a black hole, with heavier mass the higher the gravitational pull will be, even the photons are pulled towards the point of singularity. Thus is a bright circling light of the photons around the black hole

Relativity in time

The next concept that we can observe in the movie relativity in the time since the acceleration due to gravity is higher near the black hole the planet near to the black hole revolves at a higher velocity when compared to earth. According to Einstein’s theory of relativity at the higher velocity, the time is slower than actual thus there is a major time difference in time in millers planet to the earth. According to the movie every hour on the planet is more than a year on earth 

Singularity

 It the point of nothingness, though the black hole has a heavy mass still the size is relatively small the bulge in the stretched sheet so hight that it leads to the point of singularity. All the cosmic objects are said to be attracted to the point of singularity. All the galaxy in the universe is continuously in motion with respect to the overall mass of the whole and move towards singularity similar to the way in which earth is closing towards the sun.

4th Dimension cube (Tesseract)

In the climax, Cooper falls into a 4th dimension cube in Interstellar which is said to be created by the future persons from where the data required to save the earth is obtained with the help of people from the future. The confusion arises is only if cooper saves the earth then only there is future, this is explained by the bootstrap paradox where the existence of an object cannot be determined.

Followed by this the gravitational anomaly can be explained since the 4th dimension in the 4th dimension cube is nothing bu gravity. By which cooper was able to pass the data from the fourth dimension through time since it was located near the point of singularity and time is relative at that point.

Coopers suite

The final scene in Interstellar shows the cylindrical suite made by Cooper’s daughter to carry civilization into space the artificial gravity is possible in such a spacecraft due to centrifugal force. By a constant speed of rotation which produces an acceleration equivalent to the acceleration due to gravity in the earth.

The breakdown of this movie shows the effort behind the scene to make the movie a logical storyline with a classic Nolan’s signature on the movie-making Interstellar a masterpiece and a box office successful way back in 2014, most of the concepts explained through the movie were just hypothesis.

With speculation looming that Samsung might launch its S21 series in January, we naturally hope to get more details on upcoming flagships. Well, we got it thanks to the latest set of renders from @onleaks that give us our first look at the Samsung Galaxy S21 and S21 Ultra. Additionally, the source supports the rumors of the January release.

Both phones come with centered punch holes like their predecessors, with the S21 sporting a 6.2 “flat panel, while the Ultra is between 6.7 and 6.9” with an even more pronounced curvature.

On the back, both phones come with a radically different design. The S21’s camera bulge has grown compared to the S20 and now wraps around the frame of the device. We have three cameras stacked vertically, while the flash is now separated from the camera bulge.

Elsewhere, the design remains largely unchanged down to the button locations. We can detect holes for two microphones on the top and the indicated dimensions of the phone are 151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9mm (without the camera bumper).

The S21 Ultra has an even more substantial camera bump around its back with four arranged lenses. Like the Vanilla S21, it wraps around the side of the phone with the frame extending to blend in.

The dimensions listed for the S21 Ultra are 165.1 x 75.6 x 8.9mm, while the camera bump adds another 2mm to the overall thickness. The alleged addition of an S-Pen seems to be almost confirmed as wrong.

In addition to the new versions, both the S21 + and its Ultra counterpart were found in China’s 3C certification database. The only useful information from the listings is that both phones will come with a 25W load.

Specification

The upcoming Galaxy S models will feature an “EP-TA800” charger which was also confirmed last week when we saw the Galaxy S21 listed by 3C with the same charger.

THFC All or Nothing

A team that achieves unprecedented success (Manchester City, the all-or-nothing ‘football theme’ from the previous season), a great team struggling to get out of a tough spot (Amazon Prime series Take Us Home: Leeds United ), or a team that always fights on the wrong side of the scoreboard, but remains an integral part of the city and local culture (Sunderland ‘Til I Die on Netflix) – there is enough drama on each of these tracks that a viewer the time you need more compulsion to tune will be wasted.

thfc all or nothing
New coach Jose Mourinho is seen spending time with his players

The storyline

Basically, odds against All or Nothing – Tottenham Hotspur is their theme. What about the Spurs, after a year of average performances and not living up to expectations once again, is it worth being documented? This is where José Mourinho takes center stage.

In all likelihood, Spurs would have signed the deal with Amazon after a spectacular run to the UEFA Champions League final in 2019. Yet very few expected the club to implode at the start of the 2019-20 Premier League season which caused the departure of coach Mauricio Pochettino in mid-November of last year.

Editors Pick :

Documentary’s focus

Pochettino appears for about twenty-five minutes in episode one of the series, and that sets the narrative. The focus will be on the club’s resurgence with a new manager, the controversial José Mourinho, although we now know that it didn’t go as expected by President Daniel Levy. The team showed some struggle and hesitated before stuttering across the finish line.

All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur Episode 4 - Rundown, Review & Key Talking Points - ruiksports.com
This documentary also shows the rise of Japhet Tanganga who was their academy recruit!

The Spurs have a team full of superstar players, none more so than England captain Harry Kane. However, it is José Mourinho whose presence looms like a specter. The Portuguese coach is a cult figure of personality. We have loved and hated him in equal measure, but we never shy away from reading about him. In short, José Mourinho is today the same informant that he was when he arrived in England in 2004 and was given the name – ‘The Special One’.

About the episodes

All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur is a disappointment because we are presented with superficial documentation of Mourinho. The drama is missing. One of the most successful coaches of his generation, we see little of Mourinho’s tactical mind, not even in the game where we see Spurs with five goals against an unfortunate Burnley Team FC.

thfc all or nothing - dele ali
Dele Alli’s cover

With that said, we see the everyday side of Mourinho: the downright cheeky and foul-mouthed coach who is sincere about wanting Harry Kane to “blow up” and calls out Dele Alli for being lazy in practice.

However, there is a more than acceptable reference to community outreach programs; the only downside is that the series doesn’t stop at him either. Even though the series shows glimpses of how the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium was built and turns Levy into some sort of messiah, it would have been a bit better had they focused on how the sacking of Pochettino happened. 

thfc all or nothing
Here we got a glimpse of everything : From Kane’s and Son’s injury to their rise and how THFC made it to the Europa League!

What we felt!?

We must remember that this show is supported by a multinational company that is desperate to get into the Premier League broadcasting game. Amazon loves the drama and they gladly show us plenty — but there are many more secrets under the Spurs rock that haven’t been revealed. Honestly, we would have needed the rise of Spurs as a Champions League finalists or at least Pochettino’s tactics and strategy but all that we got was of The Special One Mourinho’s.

A Quiet Place

This was actor-director John Krasinski’s first major directorial venture, and it was met with unprecedented success, partly due to its innovative concept of using sound sparingly and carefully. It has a sequel coming out soon, so make sure you’re all caught up before that.

Hush (2016)

Hush – Maddie (Kate Siegel)

Yet another film that finds a new way to use sound, Hush has a deaf protagonist, meaning that many times the movie does away with cliched sound cues. This keeps the film refreshing, while also making sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.

If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a movie that writer-director Mike Flanagan did before he came out with The Haunting Of Hill House.

The Ritual (2017) 

Four friends embark upon a hike in Northern Sweden as a tribute to their friend who had died a few months earlier. Their trip is interrupted when one of them is injured, causing them to take a shortcut through a forest that is not as innocent as it appears.

The Shining netflix horror movies
The Shining

Back to one of the classics once again, Kubrick’s adaptation is notorious for being hated by Stephen King, who wrote the book the film is based on. Despite this, the film is generally considered to be one of the best ever and effectively dispels the myth that horror films need to be shrouded in darkness all the time.

Gerald’s Game (2017)

A couple decides to take a vacation to a remote area in order to spice up their marriage and sexual life. But when the husband dies of a sudden heart attack with his wife still cuffed to the bed, she must find a way to escape the demons inside and possibly outside her.

 Jessie (Carla Gugino) and Gerald Burlingame (Bruce Greenwood

Closing the list with a film that draws from other entries, this film is based on another Stephen King novel and directed by Mike Flanagan. The film stands out with its grounded horror and claustrophobia-inducing setting and manages to be more than a simple horror flick.

OnePlus isn’t a new player in the audio segment and in the past it made its presence felt with the Bullet headphones that are still available on the market. OnePlus Buds, however, starts a new chapter for the company that has somehow revolutionized the mid-range smartphone segment in India. With OnePlus Buds Z launch around the corner, this is how the original Buds fared!!

OnePlus Buds offers a number of features for the existing OnePlus community (people who use an OnePlus device) and is definitely a good enough competitor to Apple’s AirPods. This is the best AirPods alternative for people who own an OnePlus device and are budget conscious. So is it worth the penny you spend? Check out:

Design

Starting with the charging case, the oval-shaped case comes with a USB Type-C port at the bottom. The retail box comes with documentation and a USB cable for charging. Note that there is no charging adapter, which means you will have to rely on your laptop, phone adapter to charge the OnePlus Buds case. The sleek finish of the charging case gives it a less shiny feel, and that’s what most of us like.

Charging case

The OnePlus Buds’ case out fares the AirPods’ case, which is a bit shiny. It has a better grip and does not slip while holding. It feels premium despite its minimalistic appearance. However, we have to point out some astonishing similarities between the OnePlus Buds case and the second generation AirPods case. In particular, the back of the case has almost the same design elements as the AirPods’, with the shape of the case being the difference.

Editors Pick :

Speaking of the robustness of the case, the magnetic closure feels satisfying and gives you confidence while wearing it. The case quality of the OnePlus Buds is superior to other rivals in the under INR 5000 category. However, the OnePlus Buds doesn’t come with an LED indicator. The buds come with an IPX4 rating that makes them splash resistant, which is good enough for everyday use.

Color variants

One of the most striking things about the OnePlus Buds is that they come in three colors, including gray and Nordic blue, which look impressive. While there is also the standard white, which has somehow become the most boring color for the TWS segment but the gray and blue color variants are cheerful.

Three variants of the OnePlus Buds

Easy pairing

Pairing is one of the highlights of the OnePlus Buds and we can surely say that the OnePlus Buds are at the top of that list in terms of quick pairing. Open the case and if you are an OnePlus user, the Buds pairing notification will automatically appear on your device. Shortly after detection, the Buds are paired with a single tap.

TimesNow news team has tested it with different products, from OnePlus 5T to OnePlus 8 Pro. However, the same cannot be said for other Android or iPhone devices – “We would have liked OnePlus to provide even 50 percent of those granular controls and ease of use for non-OnePlus devices”.

Sound Quality

Speaking of sound quality, the OnePlus Buds perform solidly and won’t let you down while listening to music or making calls. The audio performance is impressive. It’s worth mentioning that OnePlus Buds balances the ups and downs during a track effortlessly and offers decent lows.

13.4mm dynamic drivers offer powerful sound and Dolby Atmos offers a good stereo experience. The Buds come with a noise cancellation algorithm that improves sound clarity using the three microphones that help filter out background noise.

Speaking of performance during games, OnePlus users will once again gain an advantage over other devices, as the Buds come with low latency that syncs with Fnatic mode. OnePlus claims a minimum latency of 103ms during gaming, which is not a very good figure compared to other TWS options in this price range.

The upcoming week will surely be a feast for OnePlus and Apple fans as more than one device each is expected to debut!! Check out our site for more!

Tamil cinema has huge numbers of political satire flicks. Some of them are remembered and the rest are just considered as a mere attempt or a failure. But there are some movies that create a foundation and standards for the upcoming similar genre movies. Amaidhi Padai, released before almost 20 decades is one such film.

AmaidhiPadai – Poster

Cast and Crew:

Directed and written by Manivannan (also played an important role in the movie as Manimaran) this movie is purely witty and engaging. This movie clearly shows how talented and skilled where our south Indian directors when it came to character narration, establishment, portrayal, and methodology of storytelling with timely humor.

26 Years of Amaidhi Padai: A look-back at Sathyaraj's unapologetic political-satire that's more rele- Cinema express
An iconic scene from the movie Amaidhi Padai

The main role was enacted by Sathyaraj (double role). Sathyaraj’s performance was a clear statement to all the Tollywood fraternity that he can enact a negative shade creating chills and at the same time also uphold your spirits by doing a positive role within the same frame. His performance just took the cinematic experience to a whole new level at that time.

The female lead roles were enacted by Kasthuri and Ranjitha.

Story Line

The story revolved around a Nobody (Amavasai) who with the help of his wit and mesmerizing speaking skills joins a political party whose leader is Manimaran.

He starts to show his true colors while gaining power within the party and village. The transformation scene from Amavasai to Nagaraja Cholan was simply amazing.

The story being simple. The fact that this movie stood the test of time is obviously because of the cast and direction skills of Manivannan.

Amavasai to Nagaraja Cholan Transformation

Some dialogues were so well placed that. Even if the situation was evil and inhumane, one can’t help but appreciate the wit and political dirty games of Amavasai aka Nagaraja Cholan.

The Music and BGM for the film is scored by Isai Ngani Ilayaraja was also an icing on the cake. But was not much memorable like the rest of his albums.

Motive of the Movie

Some socio-political topics like caste discrimination, violation of women’s rights, misuse of political power are rarely mentioned on the Big Screens. Even if they are mentioned, the crew always has a fear of being criticized by the audience of different ideologies. But why did Amaidhi Padai with so many references and clear mention of loopholes behind the socialistic ideology was welcomed with an open heart and laughter? That is the genius of Manivannan in blending the ideologies within a single character (Amavasai).

The Genius Director clearly depicted the negative side of ideology-based politics when it happens to fall in the wrong hands and how the people concerned don’t even know that the root cause of all their problems is because of the leader they have elected. The problems were so neatly depicted with humor that it will be always etched in the viewer’s hearts and also make them think.

The Genius Director – Manivannan

Revealing the story here would be a sin as it is a movie which should be experienced personally with all the genius of the director and the lead actor.

The movie had a just ending and also it was logical.

The Boys Season 2

Boys Season 2 is almost here. The first three episodes – which we review below – were released on September 4, with the rest of the season earning weekly after that. This is what we had to tell after Amazon released the first 3 episodes of The Boys.

Storyline

In the absence of Carl Urban’s Billy Butcher, the boys feel like a different show, missing from the Titanic ensemble. For the first episode of season 2, The Boys themselves – Jack Quade’s Hughie, Laz Alonso’s Mother Milk, Timon Capone’s Franchi, and Karen Fukuhara’s Kimiko – spend the opening chapter of The Boys season 2 digging into the fugitive at the conclusion of season 1 Huh. They are working on lifelines that can help them get back to their family and normal lives, but those opportunities keep flying in their face (often literally). Amidst all this, Hughey gets on well with Annie (Erin Moriarty), who hasn’t forgiven him but recognizes the need to work to lie about Compound V all these years.

youtube.com

In most of the sketch bunkers in which the boys are living, the season 2 premiere feels somewhat correct. And then, just before the credits roll, in Billy Butcher, a character’s terrifying cartoon. The boys are back together.

Calling a butcher a cartoon does not mean that he is second-rate; The opposite, in fact, because he is a very complicated friend (even though his motivation – saving his wife – is tragic as hell). But the butcher is larger than life in a way, no other character in the show even comes close to the Homelander. He is tough, but not stupid, and Urban gives him and every line he gives. It is easy to understand why the boys have allowed the butchers to suck them into this dangerous life.

Continued from Season 1

Season 1 concludes on Cliffhanger, but to prevent Starlight’s struggle with Hughie’s quest for revenge against A-Train (which helped save him from an over-induced heart attack in the Season 1 finale ) No story added. For her ideals, while sociologists around her. The first three episodes of season 2 continue these plots, expand on some of season 1’s less-well trod subplots, and introduce new threads that set the tone for the boys season 2.

The Homelander deals with his murder of Stillwell in Season 1 in his own unique way. Deep (Chase Crawford) lives in exile in Ohio and is embroiled in what seems to be a cult following for Super. Meanwhile, many female characters have a lot to do in this season. Starlight worked with Hughey to bring the word of Compound V to the press, with some unwelcome ways he hadn’t even dreamed of before the difficulties of last season. Queen Meow’s (Dominic McLigot) romantic subplot is one of the first three episodes, as it is with the threat that the Homelander goes out at any time, and it’s great to see her in the spotlight.

Editors’ Pick :

And it airs The Seven, as Kimiko is on quite a journey in the opening trio of episodes. Some of the new revelations provide space for her to pull out her backyard and give some dimension to her character, which was probably lacking (as was also the case in the original books). Karen Fukuhara narrates a lot without saying a word and has proved to be one of the strongest actors on the show. The more he has to do, the better.

Stillwell’s death has forced Watt CEO Stan Edgar to take a more active role in managing The Seven. Edgar is played by the amazing Giancarlo Esposito, who appeared in single episodes last season, a brief introduction that has expanded a lot this time. Like Esposito Edgar’s Grass in the Breaking Bad universe: humble and sophisticated on the surface, it moves downward with a vicious mean streak. We have not yet seen what Edgar is capable of, but it would be fun to track his arches throughout the season.

A shorter review

The first three episodes of The Boys season 2 introduce some new characters, chief among them Stormfront, played by Aya Cash (who you might recognize from FX’s amazing comedy You’re the Worst). Cash brings similar energy here combined with abilities that rival any other supers on the show, including Homeland.

Homelander with other cast members

The Boys season 2 with Stormfront is a difficult task: during the first three episodes, there is a good chance that most viewers will identify with him seriously. She has no love for Watt, and unlike Starlight, she is not afraid to say so. She speaks her mind during the interview and speaks the truth for power, instinctively knowing how to press the homelander’s button in such a way that it provokes her, which is very funny to watch.

It was recently announced that due to the coronavirus pandemic, the production and post-production for James Cameron’s Avatar 2 had been delayed, causing the release date to be pushed from December 2021 to December 2022. This is the 8th delay that the film has had to face, making it one of the films on the list of the longest production times for a mainstream film.

Plan for sequel

Director James Cameron had plans for sequels even before the release of the first film, and after its unprecedented box-office success, sequels were inevitable. They were confirmed soon after in 2010, and it was announced that two sequels had been planned and greenlit. However, the writing process took far longer than anticipated, resulting in over 4 years being spent in finishing the scripts, and this meant that the films would never meet its 2014 and 2015 release dates.

The production was further delayed multiple times due to writing delays, the need to develop new technology, and the addition of two more sequels. It is now rumored that Avatar films from 2-5 are in production simultaneously resulting in a budget of over a billion dollars.

Budget of the Avatar 2

Such a production budget is almost unheard of, and it is definitely uncommon for four films to be shot at the same time. It is natural to wonder how studios could greenlight such a huge project, and the answer lies in two parts. One, the director James Cameron is an industry veteran, known for some of the most successful films and franchises such as Titanic and Terminator. Two, and the most relevant is the first Avatar film.

Released in 2009, Avatar did not take long to become the highest-grossing film of all time with box office returns upwards of 2.7 billion dollars. It held this position for 10 years till Avengers: Endgame displaced it last year. However, the first Avatar is an interesting case in the history of cinema – never has a film made such an economic impact and left so little cultural impact.

Legacy of Avatar

The truth is that while the film remained the highest-grossing film of all time for 10 years, its legacy was little more than that. It did not take long for audiences to forget the fil, and even before that, all its praise was for the technical aspects. The franchise has never had what one would call a fanbase, and has almost nothing 11 years from then, making the upcoming 4-film venture one of the biggest risks in Hollywood.

The film was often criticized for its generic story, and less-than-great acting from the leads, drawing praise mainly for the visuals and the enhanced 3D effect. However, with 3D films being little more than cheap gimmicks today, the only things that could draw audiences to the upcoming sequels are the visuals, the colorful and vast world of Pandora, and James Cameron’s creativity. It would not be a far reach to say that the sequels may not see the same kind of success that the first film saw.

However, there is news about the film that gives some hope – such as the return of the director and most of the original cast including Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, and Giovanni Ribisi. The film is supposed to take place many years after the vents of the first one and would follow characters we know as they have grown older and built a family. New additions to the cast such as Kate Winslet, Vin Diesel, and Oona Chaplin also look promising.

The premise suggests that the film would explore the oceans of Pandora, something that was not seen in the first film. Cameron had been developing special technology to film under the sea and the film is sure not to disappoint in the technology aspect. However, it remains to be seen if a sequel releasing 13 years after the first movie will find any significant success.
