Start out 2017 with something new for your kitchen: the Ninja 1200 watts Auto-iQ Blender from Walmart. Crush ice, blend, and puree like a pro and 1200 watts of power to make the perfect smoothie, iced drink, soup, or sauce.
Thank-you, 2016. Yes, it was a tough year, both personally and as a fan of popular culture and its icons, but it was also one of The GATE's best years. It's worth taking a moment now at the end of 2016 to look back on some of the awesome that came our way over the last 365 days.
As Clea Duvall puts it, she now has spent more time in her life working in film than not, and it's led her to a new creative direction focusing not just on acting, but also on writing and directing. Her film The Intervention, starring herself, Melanie Lynskey, Natasha Lyonne, and Vincent Piazza, to name a few, arrived on DVD recently, and she chatted with me about the experience of making her first film.
Spread the cheer this holiday season with special luxury gifts from some of The GATE's favorite brands, including two special timepieces from Hamilton Watch, the latest Samsung Curved 4K SUHD TV, Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine, and cognac from Courvoisier.
Do you know what I love the most about the Oscars? It's not really the awards for me, but the frame that it puts around the year in cinema. It's about the love of movies, and in particular I love the way their montages make films come to life again, like you're seeing them for the first time. They're fresh, exciting glimpses into the real heart of cinema--those heart-racing, action-packed, emotional core moments that keep us going back for more stories time and again.
Want a tasty pick-me-up for your mornings this holiday season? The GATE, Van Houtte coffee, and Keurig want to give one person a complete package to enjoy coffee at the touch of a button with Holiday Blend coffee and a Keurig K200 Brewer.
Canadian Tire and The GATE want to help bring a little extra holiday cheer to your home this December with the chance to win a NOMA Starlight Laser Projector. Take some of the work out of decorating your home with NOMA's latest light system that projects thousands of laser starlights on any wall or surface.
Welcome back, Frank West! This week Dead Rising 4 arrived on Xbox One for ardent zombie fans to revisit the city of Willamette, and once again they take control of the wonderfully pessimistic photographer Frank as he's pulled back into another bloody adventure.
Good food and great music go together like best friends, and this holiday season Sonos has a new way to make your parties extra festive by inviting your guests to supply the music. Sonos calls it a Playlist Potluck, and recently I had a chance to experience it first-hand with Notable founder Julian Brass, who hosted the party, and Eatertainment's Sebastien Centner catering the special event.
What does it take for a movie production designer like Nathan Crowley--responsible for The Prestige, The Dark Knight, and Interstellar--to design a timepiece for Hamilton Watches? For the Odyssey ODC X-03, which was recently unveiled in Los Angeles at a special event, it just takes the right timing, if you'll excuse the pun, the right design, a lot of work, and a great working relationship built on a very special project.
