The high-tech stuff is flawlessly done, but the intriguing elements of the movie involve the performances. Travolta and Cage do not use dubbed voices, and don't try to imitate each other's speaking voices precisely when "occupying" each other's bodies. Instead, knowing that the sound of a voice is created to some degree by the larynx of his host body, they provide suggestions of each other's speech and vocal patterns, along with subtle physical characteristics. The movie's premise is that only the faces change - so each actor also finds ways to suggest that he is not the original inhabitant of his body. (Troy-as-Archer at one point refers unhappily to Archer's "ridiculous chin," and the fact that it's Travolta playing Cage criticizing Travolta is typical of the spins they put on the situation.) For the Archer character, who begins inside Travolta's body and then spends most of the movie inside Cage's, the challenge is to fool a convict brother so suspicious that even when faced with the face of his own brother, he's cautious. For Troy, it's even trickier: He goes home to Archer's family, including his wife (Joan Allen) and confused teenage daughter (Dominique Swain), and has to convince them that he's the husband and father they know. The wife in particular is surprised by the renewed ardor of a husband whose thoughts, for years, have been on revenge rather than romance. (Meanwhile, Archer as Troy is confronted by Troy's girlfriend, played by Gina Gershon).
The most important backers that a movie disc format can have are, obviously enough, the movie studios. But thanks to stronger protection systems and, in no small part, to the fact that Sony owns many of Hollywood's biggest studios, Blu-ray has always been the preferred choice of those firms.
When Microsoft first started beating the war-drum on behalf of HD-DVD, it was starting to look like the battle would be over all too soon. The movie studios were lining up behind Blu-ray, the inclusion of a fully specced player in the PlayStation 3 was looking decisive, and it looked for all the world like HD-DVD would be a flash in the pan before being obliterated by the Blu-ray juggernaut.
Every Tuesday, Sony drops a bunch of new stuff onto the PlayStation Network. Those with a PlayStation 3 or PSP can download this new goodness, which ranges from PSN games to movies, themes and more. While the Official PlayStation Blog outlines these updates in full each week, we thought we'd help truncate the good news into something more digestible.
Today's PlayStation Store update is a big one. Let's get the most important (and ridiculously exciting) news out of the way first -- Castle Crashers has finally arrived. It only took two years to meander its way over to the PlayStation Network, but the wait is over. Castle Crashers is hands-down one of the best downloadable games on any service this generation, and PSN users can finally revel in its glory for $14.99. A second new game also hits the Store today as well. Sam & Max Episode 5: The City That Dares Not Sleep can be purchased, and is free to those gamers who already acquired a full season pass for Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse.

Like so many other events around the world, Ski for Light 2021 was held virtually. On January 27-31, 2021, long-time participants and first-time attendees gathered the way so many groups have been gathering for the last year: from their computers, smartphones, tablets, and landlines. This year the question was: "Will the technology work?" Miraculously, for the most part, it did!
The Ski for Light organizers did a remarkable job of replicating as many of these experiences in a virtual environment as possible. 438 individuals registered for the virtual 2021 Ski for Light International, with more than 100 of them being first time participants.
Each participant who signed up for the virtual event was sent a blue exercise band (with the Ski for Light motto printed on it) and a commemorative 2021 SFL patch. On each of the event days, some kind of fitness exercise session was presented online. Each day, there were special interest sessions presented on a range of topics. Sessions ranged from how to make a perfect loaf of sourdough rye bread to how to live sustainably without the conventions of electric appliances and internet to how one blind athlete trained for the Ironman event. There were panels informing newcomers what the experience is like for a first-time blind skier and a similar panel for guides. Two mountain climbers, one blind and one using a wheelchair, captivated their Zoom audience with their recalled experiences climbing mountains.
