Top 10 Movies of 2013

1. Iron Man 3
Tony Stark uses his ingenuity to fight those who destroyed his private world and soon goes up against his most powerful enemy yet: the Mandarin. The bad news is that Jon Favreau won’t be returning as director, but the good news is that Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) will, and Robert Downey, Jr. is still a commanding presence. The hitch arises if Black has to weave an Iron Man plotline into a potential Avengers sequel. All due respect to The Avengers, but we go to an Iron Man movie to see a movie about Iron Man. Not Nick Fury.
2. Monsters University/Untitled Pixar Film/How to Train Your Dragon 2: This is the
Animated Film entry, and it looks to be a stellar year for CGI cartoons. For the first time, Pixar will have two movies in the same year, starting with the prequel to Monsters, Inc. — which will focus on the rocky relationship between Mike and Sulley during their days at the University of Fear — and an as yet Untitled Pixar flick. We don’t know the details of that one, but I’m hoping it’s not another sequel (especially a Toy Story sequel that’s been rumored, although a two year lead time is not really enough time to get a Pixar flick off the ground, at least under the old regime). Additionally, a lot of folks argued that How to Train Your Dragon was the best animated feature of 2010 (better than even Toy Story 3), and you won’t hear complaints from me. Last year’s massive sleeper hit will return in 2013 along with all the principals — writer, director, cast — of the first one.

3. Oblivion
The kids aren’t down with Tom Cruise anymore, but let me tell you why this project is exciting: 1) It’s an original movie, 2) it’s sci-fi, and 3) it comes from Joseph Kosinski, who gave us TRON: Legacy. OK, ignore that last part, and focus on the original sci-fi part. The script comes from William Monahan (The Departed) and that has to be worth something, right? What’s it about? A fantasy about a former solider who is the last person left on Earth after a war with an alien race. When he encounters a crashed spacecraft with a lone survivor, the two set off on an epic adventure. I think the lone survivor is a woman, and they fall in love. As long as it’s not Cameron Diaz, this movie has a shot. Right? It’s one of the many intriguing sci-fi flicks on this list. Will 2013 be the year of the Sci-Fi?
4. The Croods
The world’s very first prehistoric family goes on a road trip to an uncharted and fantastical world.
5. Oz: The Great and Powerful
A stage magician is hurled into a fantasy world, and must use his wits to stay ahead of three enchantresses who have plans for him.
6. R.I.P.D
A recently slain cop joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department and tries to find the man who murdered him.Hopefully by the time 2013 rolls around, Ryan Reynolds’ post-Green Lantern reputation will have rebounded on the hopeful strength of Change Up and next year’s Safe House with Denzell Washington (and here’s hoping 2013 doesn’t also see a Green Lantern sequel). R.I.P.D, based on the Peter M. Lenkov graphic novel, is about a recently slain cop (Reynolds) who joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department and tries to find the man who murdered him. It’s been bouncing around in development for a few years, but Reynolds has seemingly been enthusiastic about getting it in before a possible Deadpool film. The good news is that Jeff Bridges is on board (in a role Zach Galifianaki declined) and director Robert Schwentke showed a little pizzazz in Red, though his Time Traveler’s Wife was pure crap.
7. love Punch
A divorced couple scheme to recover the retirement money that was stolen from them.Starring: Emma Thompson, Pierce Brosnan and Timothy Spall
8. The Hobbit: There and Back Again
This is a gimme, the second half of The Hobbit movie that kicks off in 2012 with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The great news is that The Hobbit will attract all of those Lord of the Rings fans, as well as the many — like myself — who loved The Hobbit but didn’t care much for the LOTR novels (or the movies). It also has a couple of cast members going for it that the LOTR movies did not, namely Benedict Cumberbatch (Smaugh) and Martin Freeman (Bilbo Baggins). The bad news: There’s a lot of LOTR characters in the movie that don’t belong, and despite the fact that The Hobbit was shorter than any of the LOTR movies, it’s being broken up into two films, which suggests that there may be the potential for a lot of bloat, a problem Peter Jackson had with the LOTR films.
9.After Earth
After a crash landing, a father and son explore a planet that was evacuated by humans 1,000 years earlier.Stars: Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Isabelle Fuhrman, Sophie Okonedo
10. The World’s End
Released: August 14
Why you should see it: After a long hiatus following their supremely witty cop movie parody Hot Fuzz, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are finally reuniting with helmer Edgar Wright for the third chapter in their Cornetto Trilogy. It’ll follow five thirtysomething friends (including Pegg, Frost, Rosamund Pike and Martin Freeman) who reunite in an attempt to recreate an epic pub crawl from 20 years earlier, and end up becoming the human race’s only hope for survival.

A LIST FROM Wikipedia

A Christmas Story (1983)

All nine-year-old Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) wants for Christmas is a Red Ryder BB Gun. Problem is, everyone thinks he’ll shoot his eye out.

Elf (2003)

Mayhem ensues when a lovable, but misguided, elf (Will Ferrell) tracks down his cranky father (James Caan) in New York.

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

Tim Burton’s animated fantasy about what happens when Halloween usurps Christmas is a delightfully spooky treat.

Home Alone (1990)

Eight-year-old Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) is thrilled to spend Christmas away from his family. That is, until two bumbling burglars (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) crash the party.

The Polar Express (2004)

Some people may find the motion-capture animation tipping into uncanny valley, but it’s hard to deny the story’s appeal. Based on a beloved kids’ book, the movie follows the adventures of a boy as he heads to the North Pole to meet Santa.

HOW TO BACKUP YOUR FAVORITE CHRISTMAS DVD MOVIES WITH ANY DVD CLONER PLATINUM WITH A FEW CLICKS?

Copy Full Disc or Main Movie with a Free DVD Copy Tool – DVDSmith Movie Backup

DVDSmith Movie Backup provides Windows version and Mac version for different OS users. This freeware can be used to copy DVD on hard drive as DVD Folder, in Full Disc or Main Movie modes. As its name implies, it is a perfect tool for those who simply want to watch a DVD without the disc. Suppose you rent DVD movies and hope to keep the movies for watching later, it is more convenient to backup DVD on hard drive as DVD Folder firstly. And then you can watch or review them on your spare time.

dvdsmith
There are six buttons to click on DVDSmith Movie Backup single window. The interface is very simple as it only features with one backup method – backup DVD to DVD Folder on hard drive, in Full Disc or Main Movie mode.
Full Disc: including menus, extras, and the full DVD-watching experience;
Main Movie: grab the longest video and audio tracks.
When the copying ends up, a bunch of .vob files would be copied in a DVD folder named with VIDEO_TS. These .vob files can be played in most advanced media players like VLC. “Main Movie” does much the same, but with fewer .vob files turned out.

Google Maps is back to iOS now

Google Maps is back to App Store for downloading now. For those who keep using iOS 5 for Google Maps now can feel free to upgrade to iOS 6 without concerns.

Google Maps app is not 100% the same to the built-in version in previous iOS. New features are added and bring much satisfactory to users, especially the turn-by-turn feature, that makes much sense to those do not install GPRS in their autos.

It seems the app can not be downloaded succesfully earlier of today, but just now tried to download and can be downloaded without problems.

Mac production will begin in the U.S.

“Next year we’re going to bring some production to the U.S.,” Tim Cook told Bloomberg Businessweek. “This doesn’t mean that Apple will do it ourselves, but we’ll be working with people and we’ll be investing our money.”

“We’ve been working for years on doing more and more in the United States,” , Cook said he believed that there weren’t enough workers in the United States with the skills to support the manufacture of consumer electronics; re-establishing Apple, he suggested, might help reverse the trend and lead other companies back home.

“The consumer electronics world was really never here,” Cook said. “It’s a matter of starting it here.”

He continued to defend the company’s hiring practices, telling Bloomberg Businessweek: “I don’t think we have a responsibility to create a certain kind of job. But I think we do have a responsibility to create jobs.”

And Cook said that Jobs told him to ignore comparisons between the two men.

“He told me, on a couple of occasions—before he passed away—to never question what he would have done,” Cook said. “Never ask the question, ‘What would Steve do?’ just do what’s right.”

Apple’s new iPad and iPhone 5 will start selling from 7th December

iPad mini and the fourth generation iPad will start selling from 7th, December and iPhone 5 will start selling from 14th, December. As one of Apple’s biggest markets, would it be a great sales again?

Apple’s iPhone has been one of the most popular smartphones among consumers in China, creating long lines outside of company stores in Beijing and Shanghai on the first day of sales. But unlike previous iPhone launches where it was first-come first-served, Apple is using a reservation system this time around to sell the device at its company stores in China. Chinese people in Shenzhen also can go to Apple Store opened in November for a look for the new Apple products, but they may like to purchase in HongKong for a lower cost.

DVDSmith Movie Backup vs Any DVD Cloner Platinum vs Any DVD Cloner Platinum

You may wonder WHY I compare a freeware with another two paid software. You can be surprised and please wait a second and continue reading, you will know why I bring DVDSmith Movie Backup to such position.

DVDSmith Movie Backup is a freeware and it was originally released in 2005. It features with one backup function: copying DVD on hard drive as DVD Folder, of course copy protections and region code are removed during the copying process. The reason why I introduced DVDSmith Movie Backup here is that this freeware sometimes could decrypt and copy some DVD movies with specific movie copy protections while Any DVD Cloner Platinum or Any DVD Cloner can not decrypt well or completely.

You may ask why do not just adding the same decryption technology to the other two paid software? Subject to different software development technology, it is not that easy to simply “move” from one to the others.

However, Any DVD Cloner and Any DVD Cloner Platinum performs in an all-around way especially the Platinum version. Various movie DVDs with different copy protections are supported by Any DVD Cloner or Any DVD Cloner Platinum, clone DVD, copy DVD on hard drive as DVD Folder or ISO Image File, burn DVD files from hard drive to blank DVD disc, shrink DVD9 to DVD5, rip DVD to videos that compatible perfectly in mobile devices. That is what DVDSmith Movie Backup can not do but the two paid programs can complete in a perfect way.

Features in common:

1. Decrypt movie DVD copy protections like CSS, UPOs etc.

2. Copy DVD on hard drive as DVD Folder (video_ts), which can be played directly with media player software like VLC player or KMplayer.

Differences between DVDSmith Movie Backup and Any DVD Cloner

Any DVD Cloner can burn DVD to blank DVD disc, burn DVD files to blank DVD disc, preview titles before copying

Differences between DVDSmith Movie Backup and Any DVD Cloner Platinum

Platinum can do all that Any DVD Cloner features, plus ripping DVD to video formats including MP4, M4V and MKV, which are convenient to playback on mobile devices. It is the most helpful feature for those users who need to go out frequently.

DVDSmith Movie Backup is good enough for those who just need a backup folder on hard drive, no need to pay a cent and own a powerful backup tool. As long as you have a large size hard drive disc, then you should get DVDSmith Movie Backup.

Any DVD Cloner and Any DVD Cloner Platinum meet higher needs, create DVD copies or convert to videos. And also install DVDSmith Movie Backup on your PC or Mac, you may be happy with it when you find it can decrypt some DVD movies while the other two can not.
