The Accountant 720p
When it released in theatre i dismissed it thinking it might be a dull movie on an accountant.I thot another Bourne rip off or shaky cam stuff but this one is a good thriller.Affleck did a superb job n he adopted the traits, behaviors and symptoms of autism very well.There is sufficient character development n the story has good amount of twists n turns.There is ample amount of action, both gun firing n hand to hand combat.The headshots r brutal, the body count is high n the movie ended well leaving room for a much needed sequel.Thankfully it is not shot in hand held camera a la Jason Bourne n Taken style jus to make it appear fast paced.The movie is engaging n entertaining.Suspense n tension is maintained throughout.Director O'Connor succeeded in normalising autism and showing that behavioural conditions should not get in the way of anyone's life.The song To Leave Something Behind by Sean Rowe is haunting n mesmerizing.

The 1280x720 "progressive scan" HDTV format. Although the lowest HDTV standard, on TVs up to 40", 720p delivers excellent quality. At 40", and beyond, the higher 1080p resolution offers optimum viewing, especially for the Blu-ray high-definition format. See progressive scan, HDTV, HD formats and 1080p.
As the metrics emerge on key next-gen launch titles, it's clear that Xbox One is under-performing against its rival - not just according to the spec differential, but actually beyond the difference in raw numbers. Our Battlefield 4 Face-Off preview reveals a 50 per cent resolution boost on PlayStation 4 with no appreciable compromise in effects or performance in single-player gameplay, while Infinity Ward's Mark Rubin confirmed rumours that Call of Duty: Ghosts runs at native 720p on Xbox One, with 1080p a lock for PS4. Assuming uniform features and performance, that's a massive blow for Microsoft.
Game developers have utilised varying resolutions over the current-gen period and we would venture to suggest that at a commercial level, it has had little impact on game sales. But the next-gen launch is clearly a very different situation - consoles are at their most expensive, gamers want the best deal, and if they have invested in a 1080p display, why wouldn't they want to get the most out of it? Speaking to Guerrilla Games' MD Hermen Hulst in Amsterdam last week, he believed that Killzone fans would not take too kindly to a non-native 1080p presentation. There are areas in Killzone Shadow Fall - particularly in terms of the game's state-of-the-art lighting and material detail, where the case for targeting full HD simply cannot be challenged from an image quality perspective - the results are simply stunning. At the other extreme, 720p is so closely associated with the current-gen standard by core gamers looking for that next-generational leap, that its association with Xbox One on major triple-A games does the console no favours.
The shares have since risen about 31% to 700p Bid, 720p Offer, which is only really in line with the general market re-rating of smaller caps, as you can see from the chart below, where (as usual) the beige line is the FTSE Small Caps Index (excl. Inv. Trusts). In fact Portmeirion has lagged since Sept 2013, and would have risen to 800p per share if it had kept up with the Index.
So we have a positive trading update today, indicating that profit before tax for the year ended 31 Dec 2013 will be in line with expectations, which is for 50.8p EPS. So at 720p Offer price, these shares are priced at a PER of 14.2 times 2013 earnings. Given the much more favourable economic outlook in its main markets (the UK, USA, and S.Korea), I think this is a reasonable price.
I trained as an accountant with a Top 5 firm, but that was so boring that I spent too much time in the 1990s being a disco bunny, and busting moves on the dancefloor, and chilling out with mates back at either my house or theirs, and having a lot of fun!Then spent 8 years as FD for a ladieswear retail chain called "Pilot", leaving on great terms in 2002 - having been a key player in growing the business 10 fold. If the truth be told, I partied pretty hard at the weekends too, so bank reconciliations on Monday mornings were more luck than judgement!! But they were always correct.I got bored with that and decided to become a professional small caps investor in 2002. I made millions, but got too cocky, and lost the lot in 2008, due to excessive gearing. A miserable, wilderness period occurred from 2008-2012.Since then, the sun has begun to shine again! I am now utterly briliant again, and immerse myself in small caps, and am a walking encyclopedia on the subject. I love writing a daily report for Stockopedia.com on most weekday mornings, constantly researching daily results & trading updates for small caps. Cheese! more
