The Little Prince: For the young at heart

Antoine De-Saint Exupery, the author of ‘Un Petit Prince’ or The Little Prince, published his novella in 1943 to much acclaim and surprise. It was neither a children’s book nor a strictly adult one, combining a multi-fold of stories within stories that would only capture the wildest of imaginations. I was quite taken aback by…

Funny and cute videos for the rainy day

When you’re feeling f*cked up, that’s when you need some of this stuff. Go to youtube and hit some keywords like cute, funny, cute AND funny. I’ve had a pretty rough day today and I’ve had a day of literally thinking over shit that won’t ever change. I wish I could turn back time and…

Batman V Superman: Serious fluff

DC’s attempts to rival Marvel’s recent rampage of superhero films that have swamped the screens since what…8 years ago with the introduction of the Iron-man franchise (which was good fun), the Amazing Spiderman (meh, ok), the beloved Guardians Of The Galaxy and Ant-Man, Captain America (Just alright) and The Avengers (Kind of the worst of…

Why I love synthwave music

Hey ya’ll 🙂 I hope you guys are enjoying your good friday and the long weekend! What are you guys doing for Easter? For me I’m about to hit the tennis courts soon, but before that, I’d like to do a post on a recent favourite type of music. This also comes in lieu of…

Zootopia: Welcome to the urban jungle

Zootopia’s poster somehow foreshadowed a frightening possibility that it could follow in the footsteps of Madagascar, which would render it a failure no doubt. There were some serious pre-conceived notions and worries I had before entering the cinema, some of it as a result of my distaste towards really bad animal animated films and utterly…

Hail, Caesar! ; A flailing affair

Hail, Caesar!, a movie by the dynamic director duo Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country For Old Men, True Grit, Miller’s Crossing), misses the mark on both grandeur and comedy. Roger Deakins beautiful cinematography is a facade, a rose tinted frame that when removed, reveals a film severely deficient in plot. The funny thing I’ve…

Knight Of Cups: A dreary, theatrical and self-indulgent mess

Terence Malick’s name evokes equal amount of love and hate. This is a man whose style does not pander to the tastes of his audience but rather, imposes his own unflinching style. I haven’t seen any of his movies but surrealist elements and cryptic messages about life typifies his filmography. His last film, The Tree…

Mad Max Fury Road review; Crazo

Mad Max:Fury Road is just about the most absurd film I’ve seen. Now I’m not talking about cringe-worthy absurd or stupid absurd, I’m talking bout crazy absurd. No film is like that or ever will be or has been. The world belongs to the mad; 6 Oscars definitely belongs to the mad. It features a…

Oscars Thoughts: What A Night

Michael Keaton is indeed Birdman personified. Just like his alter-ego superhuman id in Birdman, Michael Keaton’s riding a resurgence wave. He’s now been in two consecutive best pictures, Birdman and Spotlight, so who really is going to doubt his come-back story. I’m looking forward to seeing him in his future roles! He’s da comeback king!…
