It has been 70 years since visionary director Akira Kurosawa’s crime thriller ‘Rashomon’ flung the Japanese film industry to worldwide recognition. The movie never reveals the truth about the events of a murder throughout it’s 88 minutes of runtime and even today, people continue to speculate and form their own interpretation of the truth based on the four witnesses’ tale. …


In the not so distant future, technology still isn’t able to fulfill what the human heart truly desires - a raw connection.

Her is a 2013 science fiction romantic movie directed by Spike Jonze
starring Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson and Amy Adams. The movie
is a unique take on romance as we know it, as the protagonist Theodore
Twombly (played by Phoenix) falls in love with his AI Computer Samantha
(voiced by Johansson). Strange as it sounds, this is a beautiful love story
set in the near future with many visible psychological themes surrounding
its characters.

Fix the damn club!

FIFA 21 came out a few days ago and for a change, EA Sports have made quite a few decent additions and tweaks to the Manager Career Mode that makes the once dull and often overlooked Career Mode much more enjoyable. It’s not great by any means, but you got to start somewhere.

As an F.C Barcelona fan myself, seeing the club absolutely lose it’s identity in the last few years has shattered me. So I took it upon myself to fix the club and make Barcelona a heavyweight in Europe again. …

Following on from Part I, let’s talk about how the three movies stand individually and what makes them so much different than other hollywood films in the same genre.

Read Part I :

Before Sunrise : The Beginning of Something Beautiful.

Sunrise is all about Jesse and Celine spending their first and only day together, after Jesse convinces Celine to get off the train with him to walk around Vienna. Ever since they look up from their books and start talking to each other on the train, there’s a spark that is ignited between the space they share. Within minutes, there is a chemistry, an impulse, that continues to stay with them for the movies that follow. Jesse informs Celine that…


Three movies, two actors, one incredible love story. This is one of the few times romance in it’s rawest form has ever been depicted in cinema. If what you’re looking for in romantic movies are men with abs taking a shower and sweaty women in Bikinis coming out of swimming pools, these movies aren’t for you by a long mile.

The “Before Trilogy” is the name collectively given to the “Before” movies directed by Richard Linklater, starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy as lovers Jesse and Celine. The series began with Before Sunrise (1995), and was followed by Before Sunset (2004) and Before Midnight (2013). The three movies have grossed nearly $50 million worldwide. In the first part of this write-up, I’ll be looking at the elements that make the movie so different from other hollywood flicks.

Time as a Protagonist

On the surface, it looks like your average romantic movie. Boy meets girl, they lock eyes, fall in love, have a good time…

Lionel Andres Messi Cuccittini, one of the greatest footballers of all time shocked not just the world of football but the entire planet when he announced his desire to leave the club he has spent all of his professional career in.

A remote settlement, a charismatic leader and his legion of followers who are ready to follow him blindly. A formula that screams destruction. 42 years have gone by, yet the story of the mass suicide at Jonestown still sends shivers down the spines of those who hear about it. This is a detailed description of that horrific event and what lead to it.

The Man Behind It

From being the first band to sign with The Beatles’ label to being embroiled in legal troubles and a fraudulent management causing the suicides of two of the band members, what went wrong with the 1970s power pop outfit that critics called the next Beatles?

Like most people of my generation, I too discovered Badfinger when their iconic track “Baby Blue” played at the end of Breaking Bad’s series finale. I was intrigued by a sound that distinctively reminded me of The Beatles. I immediately Shazam’d the track and looked up the band online, hoping to find more of their work to jam to. What I found was heartbreaking.

Beginnings

Formed as “The Iveys” in Swansea, it consisted of lead guitarists Pete Ham, bass guitarist Ronald Griffiths, rhythm guitarist David Jenkins and drummer Roy Anderson. The band went through a few more changes over the years…
