Moon (2009)

Moon premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and is the first film directed by Duncan Jones. I recently got an opportunity to watch the movie and was blown away by its top-notch visual effects and plot. Actor Sam Rockwell is phenomenal as the seemingly insane lone astronaut (Sam Bell) aboard a lunar energy-harvesting station of sorts. As Rockwell's character's three-year-contract aboard the Moon comes to an end, he begins to experience strange events and begins seeing things that are definitely out of place.

Moon is a fantastic movie with a sensational and haunting story. Rockwell resonates emotion and I was hooked by the art direction and amazing atmosphere. If you get the opportunity I highly encourage a watch; it will leave you breathless and shaking.

Director Duncan Jones is not yet finished with his newly created future universe; he plans on revisiting the same timeline in his upcoming movie Mute; in which a woman's disappearance is investigated by her husband, a mute bartender. Sam Bell apparently will make a reappearance.

Balti - The Album Before The Bomb

The "Tunisian 2-Pac" has just released a mixtape titled The Album Before The Bomb. Balti (Sidi Hasseen) is from one of the roughest towns in Tunisia, and has achieved international recognition due to his intelligent and meaningful rap and hip-hop. In addition to providing vocals, Hasseen also produces and composes for a multitude of other artists.

The mixtape and following album will both be released through Raw Phoenix Records. Balti raps in English, Arabic and French. Artists from appearing on the mixtape include Chace Infinite of Self-Scientific, and Infamous Mobb.

iShield Mirror

The iShield Mirror is the coolest iPhone case in stores. For under $30, you can buy this ultra-protective case. What differentiates this case from the rest is the mirror. When your iPhone is asleep or off, your iPhones screen is a mirror, however when you are using your phone, the screen is as clear and protected as it could be without any reflection at all.

Get the iShield Mirror here.

iDaft Console

Quite possibly the coolest the on the internet; the iDaft Console by Najile.com allows you to make your own remixes of Daft Punk's "Harder Better Faster Stronger" and "Technologic." The applet plays the background beats while you are in complete control of the synthesized voices.

It's very easy to use and ridiculously addictive. iDaft also allows you to link with Facebook, Digg, YouTube and Twitter. In addition, an identical app is available on the iTunes store.

K'Naan, Wale & John Forte @ Boston House of Blues

Somalian rapper K'Naan is coming to the Boston House of Blues on April 1st with special guests Wale and John Forte. K'Naan released an album titled Troubadour in 2009 and has since toured very differently than his former small-acoustics style live performances. After his most recent album, K'Naan's live shows have had a greater focus on lighting effects and electrical instruments. He has also begun performing with big names in an effort to get his name out there. This show is expected to be no different.

D.C. rapper Wale is on-the-rise and quickly become a very popular mainstream artist. He has recorded songs with artists such as Kid Cudi and The Roots. Brooklyn native John Forte was commuted from a drug-possession jail sentence by former president George W. Bush in 2008; he has since worked on re-entering the music industry, and even recorded a cover of Kanye West's Homecoming with Talib Kweli.

Tickets are only available at the door, but for more info click here.

Nintendo 3DS

Just weeks before Nintendo's next handheld is released (The Nintendo DSiXL) Nintendo has made an announcement regarding its 2011 plans to release the Nintendo 3DS. The handheld is able to conjure three-dimensional images without the need of color-glasses.

It was not officially announced how the system will be able to achieve this goal, but speculation points to the handheld's use of a front-camera for face-tracking. If this is true, forget about playing in the dark; unless of course the camera is equipped with night-vision.

The announcement is a strange one, coming just a week before the company's newest handheld; an enormous carbon-copy of the DSi. The last time Nintendo foraged into the world of 3-D gameplay was back in 1995 with the Virtual Boy. The release was one of Nintendo's few failures.

The video shows a game tentatively called 3-D Hidden Picture (creative). The system does not yet have an official release date, but expect it before March 2011.

Marvell Moby

The Marvell Moby is a tablet PC being produced by Marvell. The main difference between this tablet and other tablets being sold today, is the Marvell Moby is predicted to retail for only $100. The price alone will make this tablet incredibly popular. Even at this price, the tablet is still capable of nearly everything that the expensive tablets selling today are capable of doing. This tablet will surf the web, connect to WiFi, open eBooks, and do everything else that should be expected. The Marvell Moby should be available by the end of 2010.
