Movie

Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2

They think it’s all over? It is now. Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 is the fourth and final installment of the Hunger Games movie series. And it pulls out all the stops to deliver an epic and fabulously tense finale.

The film opens with the nation of Panem engaged in an all-out war, while our heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is recovering from an attack by Peeta (Josh Hutcherson).

Thankfully Katniss doesn’t spend too long lying about feeling sorry for herself, and quickly teams up with her closest friends to try and liberate Panem and give the evil President Snow his comeuppance. But it’s not all plain sailing. What lies ahead is an array of tough enemies, moral choices and emotional traps. And dangerous real-life traps too.

Download Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 from iTunes or Google Play.

eBook

The Night Manager by John LeCarre

Have you spent the last month on the edge of your seat watching The Night Manager unfold on BBC One? Then why not download the eBook to see how faithful it was to author John LeCarre’s original vision?

  • Was the lowly night manager really as suave and dangerously debonair as Tom Hiddleston played him?
  • Was Richard ‘Dickie’ Roper as sinister as Hugh Laurie’s portrayal?
  • Was Corky really as hilariously unhinged as Tom Hollander made him out to be?

Read the eBook to reveal all. Give it a go even if you didn’t catch The Night Manager on TV. If you don’t know the plot, then thank us for not giving away any spoilers and enjoy the gripping tale of international intrigue and double-dealing for the first time.

To say the book is a page-turner is an understatement. Nobody does complex tales of espionage better than LeCarre, and The Night Manager is one of his best.

The Night Manager can be downloaded from your favourite eBook store.

Music

(Blue Album) by Lukas Graham

Next time someone mentions how much they love that song '7 Years' by Lukas Graham be sure to say: “Yes, Lukas Graham are great. I love them.” This will instantly identify you as a musically aware person who realises Lukas Graham is the name of the Danish band, rather than the singer.

Although having said that, the singer is called Lukas Graham Forchhammer. Let’s not worry about that too much though, and talk about the album.

The big question here is whether the huge success of the worldwide no. 1 smash '7 Years' is going to overshadow all the other songs, and perhaps even make the band a bit of a one-hit wonder… but after listening to (Blue Album), it sounds to us like they’re going to be fine.

This is a great album with hook-laden radio-friendly tunes not a million miles away from Ed Sheeran or Maroon 5. Highlights include 'Mama Said' - complete with children’s choir, and the gospel-tinged closing track 'Funeral'. And yes, '7 Years' is on here too. You know how it goes.

(Blue Album) by Lukas Graham is available from all good app stores and music streaming services.

Game

Color Switch

It started slowly, as these things often do. One person in The Lowdown office downloaded Color Switch and started playing it. They passed it onto a colleague, who shared it with someone else.

And so on.

28 days later…

Color Switch has taken hold of us. If we could turn back time, believe us, we would never have set it free and started playing it in the first place.

It’s not too late for you. If you haven’t got Color Switch yet, there’s still a chance to save yourself. You might be tempted by its dazzling colours, retro graphics and simple Flappy Bird-esque gameplay, but be warned, it will take a hold of you. ‘Just one more go’ will become another and another, until the point of no return. Please, we’re begging you. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME.

But if you want to, it’s free on iOS and Android.
