All The Films From The Tribeca Film Festival Worth Watching (Part 2)

Last time, I told you about some of the films I watched at the Tribeca Film Festival. Thanks for coming back and checking out the rest! There's a lot to cover, so without further ado... SWEET VIRGINIA Sweet Virginia was the first movie at the festival I got tickets for. Most of the films I saw featured unknown actors; this one, though, had the recognizable Jon Bernthal in the lead, of The Walking Dead, Daredevil, and The Wolf of Wall Street fame.

LCD vs. OLED: Which One Wins?

When talking about LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) vs. OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) TV’s there is a lot of technical jargon crowding the internet and it is easy to get lost in it all. So we’re going to take the guess work out of which TV is going to show off the big game or the most recent episode of the Walking Dead the best.   LCD LCD’s have been around for a while now (since the 80’s) and the technology continues to evolve and develop. At its basic level the picture we see is achieved when white light goes...
