The one you feed

by Deep Thinker on 20 May, 2017, no comments

I just caught up with the movie Tomorrowland on Netflix, after I missed it last year two years ago in the cinema. I had not been too bothered about it, as I skimmed some generally meh reviews. This had surprised me, because the trailer had been interesting, it had George Clooney in it, and it was directed […]

The Greatest

by Deep Thinker on 4 June, 2016, no comments

I was nine years old, when I first learnt about Muhammad Ali – in possibly my favourite comic of all time, Superman vs Muhammad Ali. He was my father’s hero, and when he told me about him, he became my hero, too. Later, when I grew up, and many of my idols faded away, this […]

Name

I just learned that Umberto Eco has passed away yesterday. His most famous book was The Name of The Rose, but I have also read Foucault’s Pendulum, Baudelino, and even some of his irreverent prose about Naples and the Italian way of life. I also was fascinated by his study of Semiotics – even today, […]

“I’m gonna have to science the shit out of this.”

I just came back from watching The Martian (all the screens are now showing the newest James Bond movie, so I am happy I managed to catch this movie still in cinema). What a great movie! Now I need to search the interwebs to fact-check all the science because thinking about how much of all of this is actually possible […]

Back to the present

   Hard to believe I made it all the way to the future the old-fashioned way! Now where did I put my self-tying inflatable Nike sneakers?

Brief Episode

by Deep Thinker on 27 September, 2015, no comments

I haven’t been blogging much, been too busy with real life stuff, and just could not make the effort. I have watched a few movies that I have talked about before, and some I haven’t, and maybe I will try and do a quick review summary at some point. But this is not the day. […]

Avengers… oh, you know!

by Deep Thinker on 26 April, 2015, no comments

Just came back to see Avengers – Age of Ultron (that came out in the UK this week – one week before the US, and therefore one week before the Internet will suddenly fill up with Avengers reviews as if things only happen, when they happen in the US), Joss Whedon’s second outing at directing […]

He’s back

This is the week of the great trailers. I admit, after I read the synopsis of the new Terminator movie, I thought it would be total rubbish. And the title „Genesys“ (wot?) just reeks of stupidity and a desperate attempt to be kewl. But after watching the trailer – with no expectations whatsoever – I […]

Conceal don’t feel

by Deep Thinker on 3 December, 2014, no comments

As a prelude, I love io9 which is a fantastic and intelligent website on science & fiction that is unashamedly nerdy – and in equal measure, I utterly hate their content management and commenting system called Kinja, which is just so bad on so many levels. One of the many, many reasons it’s so frustratingly bad […]
