Darren Aronofsky's Noah (2014)

SpoilersDarron Aronofsky’s Noah is an interesting film based on the biblical story of Noah. And of course because of its controversial base text, most reviews and critiques I’ve read are all about the wild creative license the writer has taken to create his film. 1,093 more words

The Raid 2: Berandal

I don’t think I’ve ever endured as much in a cinema as I did watching the last 45 minutes of The Raid 2: Berandal. Sure, movies like Primer and Memento have plots that dizzy and confuse in their own mind-boggingly compelling, concentration-testing way, and flicks like Requiem For a Dream and Nil By Mouth can be utterly emotionally draining in their visual and thematic starkness, but The Raid 2 leaves you feeling physically battered and bruised, giving you a vicarious share in the unrelenting physical trauma dished out on screen. 641 more words

THROWBACK: Requiem for a Dream (2000)

NOTE: I had this review published in Teen Ink back in March 2013. Read the original article here.

Throughout my school career, my health teachers have always told my fellow classmates and me “Don’t do drugs kiddos, they’re bad for you because they’ll ruin your life!” without any proper justification, and proper justification I did not get… until I watched Darren Aronofsky’s “Requiem for a Dream”. 613 more words

I’ve been working away at that short story, but to spice things up I’m thinking about each day writing a 250-500 word super short story and possibly sharing the good (or at least relatively better) ones here. 441 more words

Writer Loves.... Requiem For A Dream. New Blog Series.

I’ve been blogging for around two years now and what has made the biggest impression on me is simply how much passion the blogging community has for the movies – independent film, foreign flicks, blockbusting epics… the list goes on. 1,360 more words

Noah

In Dordrecht ligt een heuse replica van de Ark van Noach. Een indrukwekkend bouwwerk met een duidelijk bijbels verhaal en boodschap. Een bezoek houdt het midden tussen de dierentuin en een evangelisch schouwspel. 263 more words
