Walking through Tim Burton’s mind, deep down in Benson & Moorhead’s Cosmic Horror, and a few horror nuns
My opinion on the ’new’ last Beatles track
The Devil’s Plan, Killers of the Flower Moon, and a Belgian restaurant
Excellent pre-title sequence, which unfortunately only leads to the contrived series of events needed to re-boot the apocalypse
Wow, more than a month passed by without a post. What is left of the good intentions? If I think about it, I see several reasons for this standstill: I feel still a lot of resistance to writing thoughts down in black on white, to expose myself, to open up to the world. In social networks, everything you write remains “forever” for the platform owner, but for the average user, “everything flows”. Unless you have a stalker, no one will bother to scroll through your timeline. On a blog, in my opinion, it’s more likely for people to go and look for past entries. On the other hand, there’s a feeling of possible ‘waste’ of time to write and publish when probably no one will read it. You can always argue that the time spent writing is still valuable for organising your thoughts and reflecting, but is it necessary to do it ‘in public’?(Read more...)
It starts off, in my opinion, quite well (I like the fact that it’s our ‘hero’ that causes all the mess), and it could be a decent horror if it wasn’t for some perplexing directing choice (basically, every scene that’s not people talking) and Cary Elwes overacting. Jeffrey Dean Morgan should be a bigger star though.
