THE RAVEN

Release date: 3/9/12

Synopsis

In this gritty thriller, Edgar Allen Poe (John Cusack, Being John Malkovich) joins forces with a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans,Immortals) to hunt down a mad serial killer who’s using Poe’s own works as the basis in a string of brutal murders. Directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta), the film also stars Alice Eve (Sex and the City 2), Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Faster).

When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields (Luke Evans) makes a startling discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory detail in the local newspaper—part of a collection of stories penned by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe. But even as Poe is questioned by police, another grisly murder occurs, also inspired by a popular Poe story.

Realizing a serial killer is on the loose using Poe’s writings as the backdrop for his bloody rampage, Fields enlists the author’s help in stopping the attacks. But when it appears someone close to Poe may become the murderer’s next victim, the stakes become even higher and the inventor of the detective story calls on his own powers of deduction to try to solve the case before it’s too late.

Verizon doing away with unlimited data.

Do you like having unlimited data on your phone? Of course you do. Verizon doesn’t much care for it.

Unless you have Verizon’s unlimited plan now or plan on signing up before July 7th, you are out of luck.

Currently, most pay about $30 for unlimited service. with the new structure, that rate will only get you 2gb of data.

2 gigabytes is plenty right? No way you could exceed that. Well some people may not but if you consider constant farmville updates, youtube, navigation and more 4g coverage, you can get over the limit easily.

And who doesn’t love Netflix? I know we do here at Bamfas HQ (read: my kitchen). Stream a few MacGyver eps and 2gb is in your data rear view. With a few cloud storage options available and hitting the market soon, your 30 bucks won’t stretch as far as it used too.

So what are the new rates? I’m glad I imagined you asked that.

30-2gb
50-5gb
80-10gb

Oh did you want to tether also? Free is a four letter word to Verizon so here are those rates.

50-4gb
70-7gb
100-12gb

$100 for 12gb tethering? That is more than double some other carriers unlimited tether plans. Ouchie.

I suppose if you have to have Verizon, this is the time to get on the Boat.

Bandwith constraints or evil ploy to get people to upgrade to the unlimited plan?

City Of Heroes will soon be free

 

 

Not only will it be free to download but free to play! After seven years and 20 updates, the MMO will now come in a few new flavors. Here is the breakdown.

There are 3 levels of player status free, premium and VIP.

Free is the basics, Less archetypes, no super groups, no mail, limited chat options and limited auction house functionality.

Premium is any existing players that move over to free. Essentially if you have subscribed before, you get a reward for doing so. You get more chat options, more archetypes, mail use and can join super groups.

VIP is where the mythical expendable income players hang. You pay the fee monthly, you get all the goods. All types, full auction house and form super groups.

Currently it is implied that you can go from premium or free to a VIP and back to premium, unlike other super powered MMO’s that offer free play.

No specific date is yet, just later this year as a launch window for City of Heroes Freedom.
