Burn Movie Review

Sizzlingly Odd
In his debut feature, writer/director Mike Gan has created a small film that, if there's justice, will attain a cult-like status. "Burn" takes place in the course of one evening and entirely within the confines of a rural, out-of-the-way gas station shop.
It's the kind of place that loners might wander into for a hot cup of coffee at 3am. Obviously this is not a big budget film, but Gan squeezes an awful lot of goodness out of it. Maybe we should call it badness.

Multiple Google Pixel 3 Owners Report Camera Stability Issues

With Google teasing the Pixel 4 heavily, current Pixel 3 users are less than impressed with this serious hardware issue

Even though it only has one rear facing camera the Google Pixel 3 is widely praised as being one of the best mobile photography devices to date. While Huawei and Samsung stuff four or five cameras onto their flagships Google does software magic with just one to produce stunning HDR results.

But all of that is for nothing if the hardware isn’t up to the task, and that is exactly what several Pixel 3 owners are reporting.


The below video was spotted by Android Police and shows a Pixel 3’s camera shaking wildly despite sitting completely still:

It looks like an optical image stabilisation issue, though this unconfirmed. OIS is a physical hardware aspect of some modern smartphone cameras where components shift ever so slightly to adjust for the natural shake of the human hand, thus resulting in less blurry photos.

But with shake like that from a malfunction, all you will get is terribly blurry photos – and on a device as premium as the Pixel 3, this is totally unacceptable. The issue has been widely reported by Pixel 3 owners in the Google user forums too.

Some claim that it’s the autofocus that is broken, constantly trying to focus and not settling on a subject.

It’s notable that most if not all the public complaints are for the smaller Pixel 3 rather than the Pixel 3 XL, which points to a manufacturing or component fault in the mini device. Given Google has taken the bold decision to officially tease whole new features of its Pixel 4 to avoid leaks, it’s a bad look for the Pixel 3 to have this major camera flaw.

The advice on the Google forums it to contact the Pixel support team and try and arrange for a replacement phone if you’re still under warranty. Perhaps Google will go by unscathed seeing as the Pixel is still a relatively niche enthusiast device. But if the company wants to compete with Samsung and Huawei it’ll have to do better than this.

Should I Buy The John Wick Hex?
John Wick Hex is basically a top-down tactics game with the time system of Frozen Synapse or Superhot, but it’s maybe best to think of it as its own new genre: the John Wick sim.
From top to bottom this is meant to make you feel like Keanu’s iconic assassin, and the remarkable thing is that even with a floating camera and cel-shaded visuals it absolutely achieves it. WWJWD?
