My most anticipated movies of 2017

It’s always fun to create these lists every year, it’s become a little bit of a ritual for me. There’s always awards season posts where everyone gets in on the hottest movies in town…and then there’s the prep work and anticipation for next year’s most promising crop. And you guys know me. I’m always into…

Jack Reacher Never Go Back; A tired sequel but a win for gender equality.

Jack Reacher:Never Go Back is like throwback thursday to me. Just as the trending hashtag conjures superficial feelings of nostalgia from social media fanatics, the second installment of Jack Reacher is similarly designed to appeal to fans of the genre with much ado about nothing. A good first movie quickly produced a second lite version…

My 20th Birthday

Heya guys! As much as birthdays can be an awesome time to celebrate one’s coming of age, it can serve as a powerful moment of reflection. On the one hand, I feel like I wanna be a teen forever and live in the somewhat carefree age of doing whatever’s cool and fun. But we all…

Critter Spotlight; The hornbills in my neighbourhood

Hi all 🙂 Something interesting happened just after my game of tennis on a hot late afternoon. Remember I snapped a couple of photos of these hornbills a few weeks back? Well, just as I was cooling down after an exhausting tennis game, I heard from not too far away…the distinctive cackle and call of…

The Invitation review: Do not go gentle into that good night

You might think I’m being just a tad bit corny here by referencing Dylan Thomas’ famous poem of the same name. But taken out of context, the iconic lines should have been the movie’s tagline. Do not go gentle into that good night, rage rage against the dying of the light. As far as 2016 movies go,…

10 Cloverfield Lane review: Suspend

I finally managed to catch 10 Cloverfield Lane though I’m one of the latest to post a review so here goes. I’m just going to treat this as an individual movie because I’d rather not bring in the half-sequal debate with regards to the previous Cloverfield movie. As it stands, 10 Cloverfield Lane is mightily…

An update on my giveaway

If you’ve seen my previous post, I said I would be giving away a $25 amazon gift card and you could enter through rafflecopter. It seems that the raffle can’t work and its probably due to some error while setting it up. Anyhow, I changed the requirement to something simpler; Anyone who likes and/or comments…

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…

Oscars 2016 Predictions

The Oscars are upon us once again. I know I know, yeah it’s a pretentious self-glorifying show about putting on a show in shows. It’s a showy, shallowy need to re-affirm how important and great the people in the industry are. To dampen it’s validity even more, #OscarsSoWhite hangs like a dark cloud over the…

Flash Fiction: Take A Road Trip

Road trips are fun and cool. A ride by the arid land with the hot airy wisps that slap across your face. Your hair’s a tangled mess. But who cares? This is our red hot ride, zooming far away from reality, city-life, urbanites whose self-indulgence couldn’t be more and people trying to fit us into…

Flash Fiction under 150 words. Entry 1

I waited at the place we first met. It was a cool day and your eyes seemed so clear. The tickling wind brushed our bodies affectionately, hinting at us to cuddle closer. But these are musings of a bygone age. I never found someone like you. This world is merely a facade; A blurrish whirl…
