Huh, it’s strange to be writing about something fairly new for a change. I’ve been so terribly bogged down with my dissertation and other stuff for the past academic year, that my blog contributions suffered. Well, died down actually. But here we go with Prometheus! I guess it goes…

The Dark Knight Rises preview

January 13, 2012


An unexpected weight was put on Christopher Nolan’s shoulders after the mega success of 2008, The Dark Knight, when Heath Ledger,one of the main stars, died unexpectedly. The decision to cast Ledger as the iconic villain, The Joker, raised a lot of eyebrows in advance but proved to be a great decision, but eventually turned […]

The Social Network Review

May 26, 2011


Hands up, who wanted to see a movie about the creation of Facebook and its founder, Mark Zuckerberg? Thought so, neither did I. Well, anyway, it got made, and by none other than David Fincher of Fight Club fame. And surprisingly, it turned out good though not in a way I expected it to. Mark […]

Tron: Legacy review

December 22, 2010


”It’s biodigital jazz, man”. That line, delivered by his Dudeness, Jeff Bridges as Kevin Flynn, pretty much sums up Tron: Legacy. Just like jazz, it’s an experience overall yet consists of brilliant musicians, or areas of production in this analogy, even though you might not appreciate them all and some are better than the others.

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

December 20, 2010


This is not your typical Christmas movie, although it is a Christmas movie anyway. Rare Exports is what began in 2003 as a short movie on Youtube about catching a Santa Claus and spawned a sequel short movie in 2005, and has now made its way on the big screen as a full movie, albeit […]
