Have you ever considered, how to read a book?

Following my Keynote at the BASF Sales meeting in Frankfurt Germany this week, I did an interactive session on Character; the importance of building character, and how to go about building your own character. 575 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Chappie (2015)

After hearing all the miserable reviews for this film, I went in with low expectations. Thankfully, Chappie isn’t nearly as bad as all the critics seem to unanimously be saying. 284 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Wild Tales (2014)

Had I seen this film last year, it would have easily made my top ten list of 2014. Sharp, unexpected, and viciously funny, Wild Tales is an eclectic collection of completely unrelated short films, with their only connection being the theme of revenge. 171 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Thief (1981)

I’m an on and off Michael Mann fan. Mostly off. He seems to alternate sporadically between periods of filmmaking brilliance (Heat, Collateral) and total horse garbage (Public Enemies, Miami Vice, and probably Blackhat ). 226 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

I was pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable the second Hunger Games film was, especially after seeing the first film and not being overly impressed. The second film had a good balance of story, action, and consistent drama throughout (plus some decent twists), combined with the use of IMAX technology to make for a more immersive experience. 163 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Virunga (2014)

A concise and informative look at the invasion of Virunga’s protected national park by a large British petroleum magnate looking to excavate the land for capital gain, regardless of what kind of wildlife they would be wiping out in order to heighten their profits. 145 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Idiocracy (2006)

This was pretty hilarious. While a majority of the humour in this film is intended to be immature and ridiculous (like its characters), it greatly succeeds in developing some sharp satire and wise insight into how our modern culture is already well on its way towards the vast deterioration of human intelligence and potential. 120 more words
