Dunkirk review; War personified

Dunkirk is Christopher Nolan’s latest film about the Allied Forces and their struggle to evacuate after German Forces have cornered them in Dunkirk. Facing torrential air attacks, Christopher Nolan’s film is a contained spectacle of tension and anxiety. Accurately mirroring the dread and horror of war, Dunkirk bends and threatens to break into a spiral…

My Trip To Eastern Europe, part 6

There’s alot of exciting things I wanna share you guys in this post on my travels to Berlin and Dresden. But I wanna begin it with this sight I chanced upon whilst taking a stretch when our tour bus came to stop for a while at the sideroad. Dog’s are indeed man’s best friend. There’s…

Captain Fantastic; Power to the people,stick it to the man.

Captain Fantastic sounds like the next big superhero film to hit mainstream cinema. I can assure you its more indie than red underpants and superpowers…although in a sense…it is a heroic film. It’s a sort of feel good film about oddballs having to confront the perceived banalities of suburban life and superficial social norms. Matt…

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…

Favourite movie quotes

Hi everyone :)) I haven’t posted for a while..in fact I haven’t posted as frequently as previously. But I’ll try to! I’ve been a little busy and a little tired recently and given the lack of post ideas, I found myself stuck when trying to write a post. I’ll be watching Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut…

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…

Taxi Tehran review: Iran said no. Jafar Panahi said yes.

I only recently saw Taxi Tehran and it was quite the experience. Jafar Panahi’s new film doesn’t feel like a film. It’s an outright statement of his undying love for his craft. Panahi’s new film is a social exposé through the prespective of the middle-class Iranian.  Indeed, when you limit one’s freedom of expression, it only paves…

Happy New Year!

I would just like to say thank you to all the support, likes, comments that this blog has received over the past year 🙂 2015 has been just alright. Nothing to rave about nothing to cry about either. As some of you might know, I’m still serving out my term in National Service (14 out…

Still Alice: An accurate depiction of Alzheimers. Julianne Moore shines.

You’re probabably going to associate Still Alice with Julianne Moore’s stand-out performance. It’s no surprise given that she’s won every best actress award from the Golden Globes to the SAG (Screen Actors Guild Awards) to the Baftas. In a week’s time, she’ll be the unstoppable force at the Oscars, despite strong performances from all nominees. Yet,…
