Looks quite interesting already with top notch actors like Leo Dicaprio. I am excited to see this on Christmas day. Although not a very big fan of Quentin Tarantino the cast looks awesome.
Sometimes a good advertisement has to be done away from business in order to gain more business. Promotional retractable banner stands or just retractable banners are mobile little devices that are easy to move from one place to another. These banners are meant to draw attention immediately with bold and bright colors, and with modern technology your banner can be customized to have any look that you want. The retractable banner is an inexpensive way to create more buzz about your company, business, or product, and with it you can take the advertisements of your business on the go.
Finding the right promotional retractable banners for your company involves you doing a little research to make sure it fits well with the message you are trying to give to your potential consumers. When using a retractable banner you have to find a color scheme that matches your company. Using a blue and green banner while your business sports the colors black and red most of the time will make the two seem very disconnected and contrast completely with advertising for your company. You should use recognizable symbols as well to gain customer interest. For example if you are running a restaurant and you would like to make a retractable banner try to have it decorated with some of the things on your menu, and make sure they really stand out from the banner to give people something to enjoy to look at.

They are easily affordable and teem on the internet and the good news is that you will love them to no need.

Since the church is about images and words, you can be sure that these banners come in very handy.
What are the benefits of using the retractable Church banner stands?
Please read on and you will see that the advantages are indeed uncountable.
1. Convenience – just place the banner stands anywhere and they will be good enough. They are so flexible, so light in weigh and when the church is going for crusades and meetings, they can carry their banner stands with them. Since they are so light in weight, then chances are that you do not even notice the weight. Place them anywhere you like on the church ground and you can be sure that the message will get to the faithful and the unfaithful.
2. Budget – That the retractable church banner stands come with a unique roll-up mechanism that hides or unhide the graphics does not mean they will cost you a fortune. In fact, they are so affordable it is amazing. They are the best way for a church to display its faith and topical messages to as many people as possible. The mega churches invest in several such banners and they are so effective.
3. The banners are so effective. They pass the message just right and the good news is that the praise and worship team will now be able to pass on very inspirational messages.

Marriage. It ain’t easy folks. Well not 100% of the time. So it’s always interesting to see how a filmmaker will portray a married couple and their issues. Will it be light and fluffy or dark and gritty? The film Last Night proves that it doesn’t have to be either to make a good film.
Sam Worthington and Kiera Knightley are a young married couple who seem to have fallen into their routine. They love each other, but don’t seem to have the fire that they probably possessed in the beginning. After seeing her husband’s new coworker, played by the hotness that is Eva Mendes, Joanna begins to feel very insecure, especially since Michael is going on a business trip with his new lady coworker. After he leaves, Joanna bumps into her old flame and some of their long lost passion returns to the surface. The remainder of the film is a “will they, won’t they” guessing game, as Michael and Joanna contemplate putting their marriage on the line for one night of pleasure.
Last Night delves into some interesting territory as the idea of infidelity is presented and carefully considered. It’s not like many other films that allow the spouse(s) to cheat then put all the focus on the aftermath of the decision which always leads to heartbreak. Here Michael and Joanna weigh the consequences of infidelity instead of making a snap decision and hopping into bed with another.
Also, the film also explores the realm of emotional cheating, instead of plain physical cheating. When a spouse confesses their constant fantasies and desires for someone other than their partner, a line has been crossed even if a kiss was never exchanged. And for some, it’s easy to go further past that line once this has happened.
The film is dialogue heavy, but none of that dialogue is ever wasted. Every word is strategically planned to keep you guessing who will cheat and who will be faithful, though in the end no one is completely faithful. And the film doesn’t leave the viewer hanging with some ambiguous ending, to decide for themselves if Michael and Joanna kept their wedding vows. Decisions are definitely made. How the couple copes with those decisions is more interpretive.
Here we get to see the journey into infidelity, instead of the melodramatic consequences. There is never a big confession scene drowning in salty tears, because it’s not really about Joanna and Michael as a couple, but who they are as individuals within that couple. Are they a good husband/wife or aren’t they? The journey they take to find out is worth the wait.
And for this week:
Adam, Angela, Brian, David, Dylan, Kano, Mom, Stevee-1
Well, after we left the hospital (visiting the most beautiful baby in the world), we stopped by Best Buy to get a new camera (which we didn’t since they were out of stock for the one we wanted) and went grocery shopping (had to stock up on Healthy Choice dinners and soup), we finally made it home to settle in and start watching the Oscars, about an hour and a half into the show. The only major awards (i.e. ones I predicted on Saturday) I missed were Best Supporting Actress, Best Animated Feature and the two screenplay awards. I only got one wrong (Best Actor) of my top predictions, but if Mickey wasn’t going to get it, I knew Sean would. I’m not sure how I did in the LAMB Oscar Pool, since we have to predict all 24 categories, and who really knows how it will go when it comes to editing and sound and makeup.
Overall, I was slightly underwhelmed by this years Academy Awards, but mainly because I didn’t see many of the nominees, which kept me from getting excited about anyone winning or getting upset at anyone losing. And since I was busy earlier in the evening, I didn’t catch any red carpet fashion or get much of a feel for how Wolverine did as a host. I’m glad Kate finally won (her daughter’s named Mia too!), whether or not she deserved it for The Reader. And I’m glad Heath won, and I do think he deserved it and I think he had a pretty fantastic chance of still winning had he not died.
I might have a real opinion on the events of last night by the time next year’s ceremony rolls around, once I catch everything on DVD. Maybe.
All this talk of corsets and pumping has got some of my readers feeling a little out of place, so I’ll try to “butch it up” for this review.
A towing spaceship is on its return journey to Earth, with the crew of seven in hibernation until return. The ship’s computer wakes everyone and orders them to take a detour to another planet before returning to Earth. Three members search the planet only to find an abandoned alien spaceship and a large chamber incubating thousands of alien eggs. One of the eggs hatches and a small alien attaches itself to the face of crew member Kane. The crew returns to their ship, against proper quarantine protocol, with an unconscious Kane and the alien in tow.
I’m sure you know what happens next, as it’s considered one of the most iconic moments in film history. I knew and I had never seen the movie before now, but if you don’t know, definitely check out Alien, if not for anything else.
So how does a 30 year old sci-fi/horror film of this magnitude hold up for today’s audience? Pretty damn well, I’d say. With only a handful of effects, and Ripley’s hair, coming off as dated, Alien still keeps the suspense and terror with every second that passes. Sure I knew what happens, but I was still glued to my computer monitor the entire time.
A few of my “Holy Crap!” moments, besides the obvious, include:
1.) Ian Holm as Ash. It took me a moment to realize that was Bilbo Baggins. He’s certainly changed in the past 3 decades.
2.) Harry Dean Stanton as Brett. That man has not changed a bit in the past 3 decades.
3.) Ellen Ripley has to be one of the most badass film heroines EVER.
Alien is on the short list of films that make me jealous that I wasn’t around to see it in the theater. A movie theater screen compared to my computer screen is quite different, but the film still packed quite a bunch nonetheless. Can you imagine seeing the big alien for the first time in IMAX? I’d probably pee my pants.
I’m not sure what took me so long to get around to it, but don’t be like me and almost miss a truly classic film, whether you know what happens or not. Also, don’t be like me and eat while watching a certain “chest-bursting” scene. It was not smart on my part.
