Movies can be based on real world events or fictional and one thing is certain, as long as it entertain us, we will surely always want to watch more. There is new film today called Adrift directed by Baltasar Kormakur and with this kind of movie, he is quite confident since this is his field. Kormakur has been working movies like 2 Guns and Contraband which are inspired from the different ideas and time, the Adrift movie focuses on human characters, even when they are not in struggle with the environment surrounds them. The said movie is a solid dramatization of real world events which mostly main objective is to show survival drama along with the love story which inspires character in the game to stay alive.

Adrif set in the year 1983 featuring Tami Oldham played by Shailene Woodley, a young lady who started to go on vacation in the world and wishing to venture for a new life. As she was about to go to Tahiti (a very magnificent place), she meets a guy name Richard Sam, a 30 year-old sailor. After a few months of being together, they fall in love with each other. Richard always invites Tami to accompany him in his travel on sea but she was hesitant at first. However, when Tami was hired by a rich couple to operate their expensive boat from Tahiti to California-a journey which is very long and would end up Tami return home, she agreed to go with Richard in the trip.

At the start of the sailing, it was very romantic and very manageable but later the trip turns out to be one of the worst days of her life. When a storm strikes out of nowhere, even though they are doing their best survival idea to make it through, yet, the two ends up crossing into the hurricane and only survive because of luck. While Richard (Sam Claflin) got injured and the ship was damaged and is drifting on the ocean, Tami on the other hand must find courage and strength within in order to survive and to make their ship headed towards the mainland of Hawaii.

Thanks to David Branson Smith who writes the story and it is such huge success. This is a great movie featuring two individuals who are stranded at sea. The narrative structure is great, makes Adrift very compelling to watch and you can see as well the romance and survival thriller in the movie.

The different shifts in time in the movie are heavy from the unfavorable aftermath of the storm and the happy moments which follow later as two individuals must fight for their survival. You get to see tension as well in the scene, a perfect idea design to entice viewers to focus on the movie. The movie as usual shows their flashback moment until they became lovers. This kind of movie is almost out of chance in case it will happen to anybody but guess what, since this is derive from real events, then this is surely happened to anyone in the past. There are movies which can be compared to Adrift, for instance Life of Pi, a movie which features as well a man drifting in the ocean riding a single life raft. This life raft is a vintage one and Pi who is a native Indian from India was drifted away from the boat which sunk in the sea. He thought he is the only living person in the life raft but to his surprise he has some companion the tiger and a monkey. Adrift has different story but still this kind of movie will surely give us best entertainment, especially when the character of this movie almost lost hope and then trying to find courage against the odds and at the end it is a victorious battle for survival.

Another excited tv series to watch this year

According to statistics, there are less than 10 percent of Amazon’s 304 million end users are using Amazon Payments in the year 2014 and 2015. Looking at a difference perspective, this is telling us that this can be a potential opportunity for ecommerce merchants that uses Amazon Payments at checkout if number grows around 20 to 30. Those merchant sites that are using or offering “pay with Amazon” can lower the bounce rate among Amazon customers.

PayPal has reportedly around 184 million active customers at their disposal— these includes people that have used their services to receive or send a payment in the past 12 months — for the first quarter of 2016. Amazon is one of those company which has the potential to overshadow PayPal “if more” of its customers use Payments.

The global branding of Amazon makes it attractive to many consumers and merchants from all over the world. Even Reader’s Digest knows about that since it recognized Amazon as the “Most Trusted Online Shopping Site” for the year 2015.

Interbrand, which is a popular global advertising agency, has included Amazon in their list of the world’s top 100 brands. Additionally, they have published Amazon with an estimated brand value at $37 billion in 2015, ranking tenth in the 100.
One way of attracting merchants to Amazon Payments is by offering incentives. Their terms states and is subject to a few conditions — Amazon Payments Growth Guarantee states: “If after 30 days within launching Login and Pay using Amazon you do not see any increase in sales, they’ll refund your fees on up to $100,000 in transactions,”

“The name itself Amazon is their biggest strength among competition. The fact that millions of customers trust the name, conversion is always almost guaranteed to go up — that is the way it is,” explains Eddie Lichstein, co-founder of, a retailer of automotive parts and accessories.

“Consumer trust to the company is also one of the reason that lead to higher ticket price sales” commented Scott Lucas, manager of ecommerce at First Class Watches, U.K. Lucas said that Amazon payments is around 15 percent of the company’s orders payments used in the past 30 days.

Amazon is one of the best in the business, no doubt about it. If the projected growth will be achieve in the coming years, then it will be a treat to Paypal and other big players in online payment schemes. But only the future hold such answer. If you are a merchant or an ordinary consumer, it is good to know that you have the option to use Amazon Payments for your sales or purchase.

A strong gameplay mechanic, well-built graphics are the highlights of SimCity Buildit, EA’s port of the SimCity we loved. Also noteworthy are the fully 3D engine, the complex and engaging UI system, the variety of game modes and a decent multiplayer online feature. Cities can be customized to be anything you want them to be — and besides the fact that the player can visit and team up with friends online, nothing is set in stone. There are some strange problems with the graphics engine, including a few muddy textures and some frustrating camera angles, but this is a game that every fan of epic city building is going to want to undertake.

More than any other single factor, the graphics and gameplay are what make SimCity Buildit stand apart. The story gives you the power as the mayor of a developing city. As one of the few people in the world with the power of of governing a city, you are tasked to bring such place to its peak — expanding, making citizen happy, and progress to a greater heights.

Graphically, SimCity is a mixed bag — but the good far outweighs the bad. The sprites and elements are large and well detailed, but they do tend toward the blocky side. The world is colorful and fully 3D, but quite often you’re not sure what’s interactive and what isn’t. Some of the textures are strangely low-res and muddy, and the camera will occasionally lock down tightly on the characters. The cars and buildings are beautiful to the absurd, and most of them have some slight collision detection problems.

Of course you can only control the things that a mayor has the power to do so in a city, but you still have the option though to be in god-mode where you can summon things like godzilla. This doesn’t pose much of a problem, though, since the AI system is solid and it does response very well to different kind of scenarios.

SimCity Buildit

When playing with the numbers game of course SimCity Buildit by EA has my nod. I am giving this game probably around 9 out 10. But with the use of, I am giving this probably an increase of .5 since you can have free SimCash and Simoleons if that is the case. Yeah, it might be a questionable rating knowing that it does have a lot of critics saying that the game has never reached their expectations. What they usually forget is that this game is a mobile version of that from the PC, so you really can’t expect much from it aside from having the authentic SimCity game in it. Overall, this game is worthwhile city building experience with a great story and tons of character.

Minecraft is an extremely important game for the PC. The allure is vaster than the things I’ve developed in it. You can construct anything you can think of, and it’s vastly more functional than you first see. Waterfalls are just the starting point. You can design pistons that shift obstructs in and out. You can gather an unusual red dust that performs like electrical wire and you can define in the design of working circuits. That means logic gates. That means computation. There are computer science students who have constructed operating CPUs in Minecraft, and some have even established fundamental computer games to operate on these computers of dust and dirt.

Minecraft does not include a tale to comply with or purposes to accomplish; your pursuits are specified by you, however the journey can be equally fulfilling as those located in other games. There are lots of sights to see, from the abovementioned sprawling oak forests covered in snow to viscous swamplands with vines and water flecked with green lily pads. Minecraft borrowed something that is a popular feature from Clash Royale, that is the online match making. Here is the a detailed reason why such feature from this game made it a popular one.

Minecraft’s randomly created worlds are comprised of large blocky cubes of dirt, stone, sand, and dozens of other substances. The blocks are colorful, distinctive, and memorable due to straightforward and lovely structures. What makes them great is how they enable imagination. Piece by piece you’ll rearrange and refine the excellent, primitive world into whatever you want. It could be a mountainside home, a brick house, a sky bridge, or any other production you can imagine. This is a power we hardly see in video games, and the freedom it supplies is, initially, daunting. A brand-new, untamed world may actually be occupied with geometrically demanded farm pets and numerous ranges of monster. You make it through by improving the plentiful blocky resources into tools, which you utilize to acquire more resources and make great stuff.

Creating items in Minecraft is one of the most necessary actions you do. The problem, however, is the essential information isn’t found in Minecraft. The first time I beat my way with some trees and acquired wood, I had no clue what to do with it. Fortunately, like lots of Minecraft gamers, I had a mentor who aimed me to the numerous online conferences, communities and wikis. I have pages that I return to all the time, frequently tabbing out of the game itself when I cannot remember specifically ways to craft an item. For many this is just an initiation rite, however usually it’s a dense means to manage crafting. I’d adore for the recipes to be combined into the game somehow, even if I must find them through the world.
