White House Down

Certificate 12A, 2h 11m ★★★★★☆☆☆☆☆

This is the third time Roland Emmerich has destroyed the White House. First in Independence Day, then in 2012, and now in White House Down. The film stars Jamie Foxx as the US President, Channing Tatum as Cale, a single father Cop who is applying for a job in the US Secret Service. Along with his 11 year old video-blogger daughter played by Joey King, he goes to the White House for an interview. When he doesn’t get the job, Cale and daughter join a  tour group. Then, wouldn’t you know it, just as daughter wanders off for a pee, the White House is attacked by a bunch of paramilitary terrorists, led by white supremicist Stenz (Jason Clarke)

Price Glitch – make the most of it!

Good old Kobo, don’t you just love em!

Yet again, they’ve screwed up changing the price, and so – for the time being – WANTED is till available from Kobo for the old price of £1.99 / $2.99. And Amazon is price matching to it! So you can grab a bargain at either of these stores, while it lasts.

And I have literally no idea how long it’ll last – could be hours, could be minutes. Could even last till tomorrow! (I gather the US is on holiday today). So if you’d rather pay £1.99 than £3.49, or $2.99 than $4.99, now’s your chance. But don’t hang about…
