Justin Vernon brings his popular indie-folk band to Burnaby’s Deer Lake Park on Saturday for what is sure to be a beautiful concert.

Sorry, Ladies and Gents: Tom Hardy Is Not as Tall as You Probably Thought

That fantasy you have of Tom Hardy towering over you for a kiss might not be as realistic as you think. In fact, while the Venom actor opts for larger-than-life roles, he stands at just 5’9″. Tom might be the same height as his Peaky Blinders costar Cillian Murphy, but he is smaller than his all-knowing friend Leonardo DiCaprio, who reportedly boasts 6 feet of height – although there is talk that this might be a white lie and he actually stands at 5’10”.

Review: ‘Detroit: Become Human’ is enthralling if flawed

As technology grows more powerful, developers move closer to blurring the line between real-life and digital. They create photorealistic works that become indistinguishable from real life, and Quantic Dream sits in the middle of that space. Studio founder David Cage and his team have made their reputation on story-driven projects that emphasize gorgeous visuals, character development and player choice. Although the goals are always ambitious, they don’t always hit the mark. “Heavy Rain” provided an intense and intriguing experience despite an awkward moment in the mix. Despite a better cast, “Beyond: Two Souls” was entirely clumsy. With Cage’s latest project, “Detroit: Become Human,” the game designer gives players a grand… Read More
