Venice Film Festival opened with “Lacci,” which gave a lack-luster performance. The drama film directed by Danielle Luchetti was the show’s starter but failed to impress because of its non-engaging storyline.

In juxtaposition with last year’s Marriage Story, Lacci also explores the dynamics of marriage and deals with a couple in which it follows the story of a wife living with an unfaithful husband. The story structure is small and isn’t engaging in terms of international appeal and the audience’s reactions.

Lacci

Based on the novel written by Domenico Starnone, Lacci (meaning “The Ties”) is about the marriage between Aldo and Vanda, who also have children. Aldo is a novel enthusiast who smugly gives his opinion on books on a radio show. One day, he reveals to Vanda that he had been cheating on her with his assistant named Lidia. Vanda kicks him out of the house, and Aldo, who without any further altercations, estranges his family and travels to Rome to live with Lidia. The film reveals that in Rome, Aldo is happy living with Lidia and enjoying being with his supportive friends.

What is not clear from the revelation shown in the film is how come the couple manages to stay together after thirty years from that day. The film showcased and tried to portray present-day marriages that are surviving on resentment, compromise, and lack of sentiments.

Perhaps, the film didn’t care about how the marriage was sustaining, it cared about the fact that it was.

The film showcased and tried to portray present-day marriages that are surviving on resentment, compromise, and lack of sentiments.

Daniel Luchetti very loosely adapted the novel missing out on minor but significant details. The character Aldo is not well written because he hasn’t been shown to have any specific purpose. In fact, all the characters lack the depth that could have struck a chord with the emotional impulse of the audience had it been there.

There is a layered meaning of male smugness that we can get from Aldo’s character. A man who is so indulged in self-pleasure and admiration that he fails to notice that he takes recreant and indolent decisions every time. The man who pretends to be clever by talking about books on the radio show, but in his own life, he is barely a “clever,”; hardly inculcating any bookish principles.

“Lucci” tried very hard to tell a story about marriage but checked crosses on every column that does make a story a good story.

We are living in an era of a digital revolution, where our data is always vulnerable to potential online attacks and hacking. Ignoring your computer’s security can prove fatal in today’s digital landscape.

In this article, we will mention seven common cybersecurity mistakes you do that put your security at risk and how you can avoid them:

Weak Passwords

One of the basic protections that you can set for your system is a password. But, we often set too weak or easy to guess passwords that do not create any level of security for our system. According to a study by Preempt, revealed that 35% of LinkedIn profiles have weak passwords which make them more susceptible to getting hacked. To set a strong password, make sure you use a minimum of 12 characters with numbers, symbols, uppercase, and lowercase letters. Try to avoid any dictionary word or a combination of dictionary words.

You Don’t Use a Password Manager

It is not rocket science to understand that your different accounts need different passwords. Setting a single password for all your accounts can prove dangerous for your online security. But, setting strong and different passwords for each account can be exhausting and difficult to remember. You can simplify this process by using a password manager which will help you in managing all of your passwords. A password manager creates, stores, and organizes all your passwords of different platforms.

You Don’t Use Two-Step Verification

Two-step verification acts as an additional layer of security that keeps your accounts more safe and secure. A two-step verification system gets activated when you try to access your accounts from a different device. It sends you an alert about the login on different devices and tries to confirm if it’s you. It sends you a code on the registered mobile number, and once you enter that code, you can access your account.

You Don’t Stay Conscious With Public Wi-Fi

Public Wi-Fi can be a potential threat to your data. Once you connect to any public Wi-Fi, you give access to your personal information. However, you can trust Wi-Fi access at airports, restaurants, hotels, and cafes. Nortan issued a list of tips and tricks which helps you in reducing the risk associated with public Wi-Fi:

●        Make sure you increase the security on your device by going into the security settings.

●        Make sure you change passwords before and after your travel.

●        Update your software and applications.

●        Avoid logging into accounts that save private information.

●        Don’t access the URL which is not starting with HTTPS.

You Don’t Keep Your Software Updated

Out-of-date software does not provide efficient security to your system. Out-of-date software is a perfect target for cybercriminals to get into your personal information. Although, most of the software has an auto-update feature, sometimes, it needs your permission to perform the update. Apart from security, updating your software can provide various other benefits like enhanced performance and speedy processing.

You Don’t Stay Conscious While Using Social Media

Social media is an excellent platform to share your ideas and thoughts, but sharing critical information on social media can prove fatal. Make sure you check the privacy setting of your social media accounts and don’t share very personal information like job details, photos of your children, and locations.

Check the Details of the Email You Receive

On the internet, cybercriminals try to pretend to be you, and it creates threats like data theft or transmission of the virus on your PC. This type of scam usually happens via emails. Make sure you check the integrity of the sender before clicking on any link or sending any personal information like login credentials or credit card numbers.

Conclusion

Almost every day, we hear some news about online data theft. Hackers are always active and looking for opportunities to steal personal data and misuse it for their gain. By following the tips mentioned above, you can enhance your internet security and protect yourself from these potential online threats.

HDR, most of the TVs, cameras, or most of the other devices talk about HDR quality. But do you understand what HDR exactly means? The chances are that you find this specification of your device useless, and something that is not meant for you. But hey, HDR is an incredible technology that can pull out more incredible visuals. Its functions could be complicated but it is not rocket science for sure.

what-is-hdr-gaming-1-3

So, here we are, to tell you everything you need to know about HDR. Read this article to learn about a cool piece of tech, so the next you purchase a device, you will have a complete understanding of its specs.

What Is HDR?

HDR ( High Dynamic Range), provides greater brightness, contrast, and color accuracy to both video and still images. The improved white to black ratio onscreen makes the darker parts of an image look dim, and brighten the lit regions. This technology became significant after the jump from SD to HD in the devices.

HDR 10 vs. HDR 10+ vs. Dolby Vision

These days most of the TV sets are available with the primary version of HDR known as HDR 10, where 10 refers to the 10 bits of color that HDR is proficient to display.

Alongside HDR 10, you will come across Dolby Vision (dynamic scene coloring), which has similarly competent features and specifications, plus, the scene-by-scene dynamic color shaping. Although both these technologies are the same in terms of light and dark color contrast. But Dolby Vision allows cinematographers and colorists to change the level of HDR in each scene, instead of a single color spec running throughout the entire show or movie.

As the market becomes more competitive, users get more features in a single device. Much like HDR 10+ that has all the features you get with Dolby Vision at a cheaper price.

How Do You View HDR?

Currently, there are two ways to view HDR. You can either use a UHD 4K Blu-Ray player or simply use streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu on a compatible device.

However, the format war did not let Netflix enjoy the whole game. Some of the popular shows like Glow are working only with Dolby Vision sets, while other Netflix originals run in HDR 10.

What to Look for in HDR Support

When you dig into the specifications of a monitor or a TV, you will see one monitor supports HDRi, another supports HDR10, another supports DisplayHDR 400. So, what do these specs mean? And how do they make a difference?

When you check these specifications, you will notice maximum supported brightness changes with the HDR type. For example,

  • The monitor with HDRi support offers a maximum brightness of 350 nits.
  • Other monitors with HDR10 support offer a maximum brightness of 300 nits.
  • Another monitor with DisplayHDR 400 offers a maximum brightness of 400 nits.

As you can see, monitors with higher HDR spec do not offer any better HDR performance.

So, when it comes to identifying which scene is going to give you a good HDR experience, you must look for maximum brightness it can provide. You should look for panels with a maximum brightness of 1000 nits to pull off the HDR effect.

We hope now these specifications of your devices make sense to you, and help pick the best one.

In this article, we will mention some tips and tricks to make the most out of your Amazon Prime subscription:

Offline Viewing

Amazon offers a video download feature for iOS and Android users. Amazon Prime was the first one who launched the offline streaming option back in 2015. This feature enables you to watch your favorite shows and movies after downloading it. This feature is excellent for travelers and for people who have restricted network connections. To download videos, install the Amazon app, and sign in with your username and password. Hit the download button next to save for later options.

Personalized Watchlist Display

To create your personalized display, you can build a home screen carousel for your movies and shows. Search the Watch Next carousel on your Prime home screen and click a small button above the carousel. This feature will enable you to delete individual titles from the carousel, and you will be left with the ones you want to watch.

Your Full Watchlist

With such an extensive catalog, there are a lot of shows you want to binge on. You can add those shows to your Prime Watchlist. Click on the small +sign in the bottom right corner of the image on the home screen. By doing so, your shows will be added to your Watchlist, and you can find it by going into the menu option on the top of the screen.

Improved Searches

Amazon’s search bar is not very much useful as it consumes a lot of time while looking for content. To improve your search experience with Amazon, search for your Amazon Prime content somewhere else and then put the show’s name directly into the Prime search bar.

Turn-Off Auto-Play

Almost all streaming services offer an auto-play option that eats up all of your free time. To turn off the auto-play option in Amazon Prime, go to “Accounts & Settings” and then go to the “Playback” tab.

Details of Your Shows

One of the coolest features of Amazon is that it pulls out the information about the shows or movies you are watching and overlays it onto the screen. You can access that information by pausing the video. This feature is also known as X-Ray. You can also expand the X-Ray and learn trivia and access information on the show’s cast and characters.

Amazon Channels

One of the most fantastic features of Amazon is its Amazon Channel, which turns your Amazon Prime into a centralized hub for all your online streaming services. You can access other streaming services like HBO, Star, Showtime, and some services, even enabling you to watch live channels.

Conclusion

Amazon Prime offers unlimited streaming of your favorite web series, movies, and T.V episodes. As mentioned above, these tips and tricks can surely enhance your viewing experience with Amazon.

On Tuesday, 25th August 2020, California Americana’s parking garage in Glendale became a packed drive-in movie theatre. The feature presentation was for the movie The Stranger. The Stranger is an American crime thriller television series created by Veena Stud that debuted on Quibi on 13th April 2020. The series starred Dane DeHaan, Avan Jogia, and Maika Monroe. The event was organized by Street Food and Collider, which featured ten episodes of the series for the first time without any interruptions. The event also included an introduction from the creator, director, and writer Veena Sud. And a post-screening virtual question-answer round with the cast and Sud, viewers were also served free refreshments from Umami Burger for all who attended the show.

The whole event was organized according to the safety measures of the COVID-19. The show includes contactless entry and food delivery and all the staff wearing personal protective equipment. The audience in their car safely enjoyed the screening. Sud commented that she had been seeing the show on the big screen for the first time. The Strangers was made for small screens and phone screens. She felt watching the real-time thriller show in Dehaan terrorizes Monroe under the starry sky of Los Angeles appropriate. She added that the film is a love letter to Los Angeles and it is inspired by many things. She said L.A is a city that we know, and we love, but we do not find them much in our movies. Sud also spoke of her optimism for the future of Quibi. She said there is much more to discover in the Quibi format, and this is a new way to interact and watch stories.

The story started at night when a rideshare driver named Claire picked her next passenger named, Carl E., from a mansion in Los Angeles. Claire, on the other hand, was new to the city and unaware of the landscape in L.A, and hence it took her a longer route than usual. Carl reveals that he had murdered the family of the mansion in forty minutes, and if Claire told him a good story, he would not kill her.

The creator and director of the series Veena Cabreros-Sud is a Canadian-American television director, writer, and producer. She is known for developing the famous American television drama The Killing. The series was based on the Danish series The Crime (Forbrydelsen). Sud was born in Toronto and grew up in Indian Hill, Ohio. She graduated from Cincinnati Country Day School. After graduating from Barnard in 1989, she spent years working as a journalist at Pacifica Radio. After completing her graduation, she directed the show off MTV, The Real World. She also developed a limited series of Seven Seconds for Netflix inspired by Black Lives Matter. She was a distributing director for Third World Newsreel; the project was specialized in movies about and by people of color.

Neji HyūGa was a ninja of the Hyūga clan. He was a whizz-kid even by the standards of his clan. Being a member of the clan’s brand house, he had decided to be in service to the Hyūga main house irrespective of how skillful he becomes. He believed that his fate was predestined, but his opinion changed when he saw Naruto’s denial of such an ideology. Neji came to the conclusion that it was up to him to decide his fate, and he started seeking all the strength he needed to make a future that he wanted for himself and his loved ones.

Neji ended up sacrificing his own life for the protection of his cousin Hinata during the Fourth Shinobi World War. It was crucial for Naruto since because of him, he was able to stop Kaguya. Since Naruto later married Hinata, Neji had unknowingly saved Naruto’s future wife. The story could have been much different if it wasn’t for his sacrifice for the greater good. So, it is not surprising that Naruto fans regard him as the most selfless heroes of the show. Only just recently Boruto has honored Neji with his unique move, and it is all coming together since Neji was his unofficial godfather.

Neji was able to challenge Naruto and Sasuke and pushed them to their limits with his chakra manipulations and palm style techniques. He was too good for everyone his age, and it was believed that he was going to become Konoha’s most exceptional shinobi. Unfortunately, that never happened because of his premature death. Boruto, aware of this history, honored him in his fight with Kirisaki.

While investigating the case of Hashirama Cells, Boruto’s Team 7 go to the Land of Silence. There they find black markets where many of the wanted criminals roam freely. Even though the ninja alliance knows them, they choose to turn a blind eye to all the shady business that goes on there. This shocks Boruto as he can’t comprehend why the alliance would decide to do anything even when they know about all of this.

Team 7 finds out that to get their hands on the Hashirama Cell and to solve the case, they will have to interrogate Kirisaki, the rogue medical ninja. Boruto uses his sexy jutsu to lure him into a trap so that he can be caught. But the trick fails as Kirisaki starts fighting him. He easily dodges some of Kirisaki’s attacks, but when he rushes in, Boruto uses the Wind Style: Gale Palm to create high-speed winds that knock him out.

Boruto accurately mimics Neji’s movements in his attack as though he was copying him subconsciously. This shows how much respect he must-have for his godfather Neji, as he wants to make Neji’s moves his own. This is undoubtedly an emotional tribute from Boruto to Neji, and it has left all fans teary-eyed.

Boruto’s sister, Himawari, has the famous Byakugan eye technique. It would be a perfect homage if the siblings just pair the ocular jutsu along with the fighting style of Neji. What was even more impressive was the demeanor of Boruto after he performed Neji’s moves. Also, though he usually gets very excited and makes jokes after completing his mind-blowing moves, he appeared much different this time. Neji used to have a very stoic aura around him. After Boruto had copied his move, he also seemed very dignified and majestic as if he were relishing the historical significance of his actions. Boruto has always been very compassionate and considerate towards others. His tribute to Neji proves that he is born for greatness like his father, Naruto Uzumaki.

Yakone is probably the scariest Avatar villain, even though his presence on the show may only be limited to flashbacks. He was still able to leave his mark on the show. He was one of the few enemies who were able to affect Aang. He was a ruthless criminal who almost succeeded in taking Team Avatar down on his own. Using his forbidden bloodbending abilities which were cruel, he was able to hold a lot of power in the Republic City. He was so powerful that Aang had to use his Avatar state to finally put an end to his sinister plans.

Yakone_smirking

But his influence still lurks around decades later as his son Noatak who under the alias Amon has led an Equalist revolution to ensure chaos and devastation on Republic City. He almost achieved his evil goals before Avatar Korra, and her brother Tarrlok came in his way. Korra’s brother killed Noatak along with himself to finally end the circle of terror and destruction started decades ago by Yakone.

The story of Yakone’s power and abilities makes for a gripping tale in Book One of The Legend of Korra. Still, it clashes with the narrative of bloodbending that was established in Avatar: The Last Airbender. Book 3: “The Puppet Master”, introduces a waterbender named Hama, who has escaped from prison. She was captured by the Fire Nation and kept in jail for decades. In prison, after years of practice, she was able to develop her unreal ability to bend blood. She was able to do it because of her spiritual connection with the full moon when her bending skills were at their best. Hama’s ability of bloodbending developed under very intense conditions during her imprisonment.

Hama’s story was not the only one, in Book 2 when Toph was also imprisoned and left in a metal box she too, like Hama, developed bending abilities. Her newly developed metal bending helped her escape the metal box. She also had a spiritual connection, but unlike Hama, it was rooted in her bending. Toph was unusual in other ways as well, since she learned earthbending at a very young age from the very first earthbender which puts her in a league of her own.

The practice of sub-styles like lightning-bending, metal bending, and bloodbending is not something that people are born with. But these are skills that can only be developed by great benders by practice and persistence. But these theories fall flat when Yakone claims that her bloodbending abilities have been something that has descended to him from a long line of blood benders. Although Tarrlok and Noatak have to practice their sub-styles in the full moon, they too have inherited their abilities from their fathers.

The Last Airbender does not explore the story of bloodbending beyond “The Puppet Master”, therefore it left a lot of room for the Legend of Korra to fill in the gaps with more depth. But by portraying sub-styles as something that can be inherited rather than learnt in harsh conditions and years of practice, raises a conflict with the narrative that the Last Airbender has set. The benders are only born with the ability to bend their respective elements. So, going by this narrative, it should be impossible to be born with sub-styles in the first place. The control of the sub-styles requires a different understanding of one’s bending abilities. Even though it is rare, there is no doubt that sub-styles can be learnt. So, going by Last Airbender’s storyline, a toddler won’t be able to develop a sub-style since it would be too early to have the required unorthodox bending understanding and practice. So, when Yakone claims that he was born with the sub-style, it is really something unconventional and unprecedented.

What’s even weirder is the fact the Yakone not only inherited his sub-styles, but he passed it on to his son. It is not uncommon for a storyline to change as it progresses but to introduce something that completely contradicts the basic understanding that was established before, seems illogical. Yakone’s character has created contradictions for the Legend of Korra as the narrative set by the Last Airbender is completely disregarded while explaining Yakone’s bloodbending abilities.
