Bumblebee

Extras

Bumblebee is the sixth entry in the live-action Transformers franchise, but for much of this film, the title character is the only robot that appears onscreen. Directed by Travis Knight, who previously directed Kubo and the Two Strings, it has its share of action scenes, but also makes an effort to be character-driven by exploring the relationship between Bumblebee and the teenage girl who discovers him, Charlie. Set on Earth in the 1980s, Bumblebee can be a little predictable and even a bit corny at times, but nonetheless remains thoroughly enjoyable throughout.

The Oboe in the Twentieth Century

By | May 3rd, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

Ours is an era where bargain anthologies from the greatest artists, ensembles, and composers on record compete with new issues of unusual repertoire and transcriptions. One among many that have caught my mind and ear is Alex Klein and Philip Bush’s recording of Twentieth Century Oboe Sonatas. Issued by the Chicago-based Cedille label and available on disc, as a 24/96 download, and streaming (including 24/96 on Qobuz), it showcases the artistry of Klein—Brazil native, Grammy Award winner, and Principal Oboe Emeritus of the Chicago Symphony—and chamber music piano specialist Bush.… Read the full article

Valve Index vs HTC Vive Pro vs Oculus Rift S: the VR headset showdown

By | May 3rd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

It has been a historic week for fans of virtual reality gaming: Just as Facebook dropped the details on the launch of the Oculus Rift S, Valve jumped in to offer up its own details on its high-end Valve Index VR headset. 

It was a one-two punch of premium VR news that will radically reshape the VR landscape that has been dominated, largely, by the cheaper, console-focused PlayStation VR

The only problem with all these new options, however, is that two brand-new headsets – plus the pre-existing (and very good) HTC Vive Pro – could paralyze potential adopters of high-end VR. 

If all this valuable VR hardware has you in a daze, allow us to clear up the confusion, call out the differences and generally compare the three best-performing headsets heading our way in 2019. 

Here's how the HTC Vive Pro, Oculus Rift S and Vive Index are stacking up.… Read the full article
