I would like to think that I write from before the Internet became what it now is. Yet, there is no denying that this does make writing and reading easier.
This blog is a catalogue of my writings, for myself and those who would care enough. As I continue to post in various places over the net, this blog will become the central resource for the worthy pieces. It also gives me a platform to write without an excuse or as a response.
Comment if you want to, or just read away!
Directed by: Russell Crowe
Starring: Russell Crowe, Olga Kurylenko, Jai Courtney , etc.
Release date: December 13, 2014 (Dubai International Film Festival)
Russell Crowe, the Oscar-winning Australian actor, makes his feature film directorial debut with The Water Diviner. Though an ambitious effort, Crowe needn’t hurry into changing professions anytime soon. Unlike his contemporaries Mel Gibson , Ben Affleck or even George Clooney, Crowe shows little flair for story-telling in form or style. The Water Diviner is simplistic; it has a banal quality that can’t be rescued by Russell Crowe the actor nor the movie’s wonderful production.
Directed by: Peter Jackson
Starring: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, etc.
Release date: December 11, 2014
Thirteen years since we first saw Peter
Jackson’s hobbits walk across the cinema screen, his epic six-movie saga
on Middleearth comes to an end with the last of the Hobbit films. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,
in many ways, is Jackson’s most sincere Hobbit film – it is neither an
unnecessary indulgence, fan-service nor award-baiting. It is an
entertaining and energetic finale that stays faithful to the one thing
that matters most: telling a great story. The relatively shorter
runtime, a different format of events (there is no journey) and the
uninterrupted pacing undoubtedly make it the best of this trilogy.
