We’re All Muggles in a Wizarding World

Every child across the world will forever hate their eleventh birthday. I spent the day waiting for the arrival of an owl delivering my letter, and then the night waiting for a half-giant to burst down my door, give my brother a pigs tail, and tell me those famous words: you’re a wizard, Harry (even though my name is not Harry and I am not a boy). 200 more words

Boy, Lost: A Forgotten History

The front cover of Boy, Lost defines Kristina Olsson’s work as a “family memoir”. And it is. It tells of how a whole family is affected by the grief of one moment: a mother has to deal with the loss of a son who is stolen from her arms, a lost boy has to search for his stolen childhood, and a family has to live with the ghosts of that boy, lost, who haunts them. 484 more words

Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde: The Inner Battle We All Fight?

WARNING: SPOILERS!

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde centres upon a conception of humanity as dual in nature, although the theme does not emerge fully until the last chapter when the complete story of the Jekyll-Hyde relationship is revealed, which itself is a mocking criticism of society’s willingness to believe that ‘what you see is what you get’. 299 more words

Flash Review: Miss Granny

If you’ve known me for a while, you’d probably know that I generally don’t watch all that many k-movies.

I tend to prefer the dramas over the movies, probably coz so many of the k-movies that I’ve watched seem to either go super gritty & violent, derail, or take weird narrative turns towards the end (Raise your hand if you’ve never had a seemingly harmless k-movie suddenly go all dark, sad and deathy on you!). 854 more words
