Fashion from Movies has reached its 20th post I have fun doing them and I am pleased that it got some warm responses. I even put it as my best feature in this year’s LAMMY. I didn’t think that it will lasted this long because it’s not really what you call a ‘deep article’, but there’s so many people who enjoyed fashion and therefore it relates to many people too. Fashion is also one of the inspiration from the movies. Big thanks to Polyvore to make it easy to me. Continue reading
Let me be honest, blogging needs a lot of time. And actually I’ve been trying to keep up, but when you want to write there’s no time. When there’s time, you don’t have the mood. But I have this thing (perhaps almost all consistent blogger have it too) to post regularly, anything, because I feel responsible for my readers. Sometimes maybe I’m not putting all of my concentration when I write it. I feel really grateful on how this blog has develop.

They have several programs; Pop Up Cinema, Retrospective Bong Joon-Ho, World Cinema and Open Air Cinema (will be held 29-30 November). I missed the first week, but last Saturday I attend to the World Cinema program. Perhaps I came for the very best thing; watching 12 Years a Slave (2013) and also one excellent Singapore film, Ilo Ilo (2013). Other movie line-ups were The Bling Ring (2013) and The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2013). Won’t waste anymore of your time, here’s my impression of the two films : Continue reading
It’s the 8th edition of Memorable Movie Moments! Now I usually pick a theme with a little bit of of pleasant atmosphere, but writer’s block isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In some of these movie’s cases, writer’s block means we’ll have some great inspiration in the future (we just don’t know when, could be soon). So as usual, I provide some images of the movie scenes about writer’s block, and you name the movie Just for fun, I add a little trivia below them. Continue reading
“Sometimes it’s good to do what you’re supposed to do when you’re supposed to do it.”
The world can be a pretty scary place. That’s why when we found something we can rely on or feel comfortable with, we hold on to it. Frances (Greta Gerwig) have a perfect roommate/best friend, Sophie (Mickey Sumner). They are so much in sync as best friend and living partner, they are practically married.
