Book review #1: The Vegetarian

This is my first book review and it shouldn’t really be my first because I should have started this a while back ago! I love books as much as I love movies but I always take too long to read them. I have read a few good ones in the past year, so I figured…

Pete’s Dragon; Something different this way comes

Pete’s Dragon is Disney’s awesome new film that has in abundance, the breath of fire and emotion that it’s counterpart, The BFG, lacked. The opening 5 to 7 minutes is exceptionally beautiful. We’re led into Pete’s story and his character crises hits us so early its honestly quite a surprise. Openings aren’t usually this attuned…

Suicide Squad; Sad plight of the superhero genre

I really wanted to like Suicide Squad.Really. But with some directorial fumbles and plot contrivance, I find myself asking the same question that I’ve asked myself plenty times when watching superhero movies – What’s the point? Superhero films badly need a change. But suicide squad wasn’t it. It still has the trademark crowd-pleasing aspects that…

Blindspot #3 review; L.A. Confidential

Great noir films begin with a feeling that something,somewhere in the vastness of this world that we inhabit,is spinning in ways too fast for us to grasp. Chinatown exemplifies this to the fullest;We see personal tragedy as a consequence of a futility in justice. Taxi Driver is a haunting look at ‘God’s lonely man’ who…

Purple Heart; A Poem

Back from the monstrous war Where they slept next to turrets The morning dew were pellets These survived it all and more   ‘Soldiers y’all remember the drill?’ Three.Two.One.Showtime. ‘This is your big night.’ Deep down, big nights had blood and shrills   One by one they went up front The medals of honour so…

April and the extraordinary world review

April and the extraordinary world is an enchanting mixed bag of 1890’s European vignettes and scientific-industrial fantasies, all of which enfleshed in a loving and heartwarming tale. It’s too bad that they translated the french dialogue into English so I didn’t get the most authentic experience. Nevertheless, it was a joy to revel in the…
