A beautiful tune for the weekend from the ever-celestial Röyksopp and Robyn.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Disney continues on its quest for world domination… Successfully I might add…

On Thursday I went to The Avengers marathon and the next day I woke up with some form of Avengers depression because I realized there are no superheroes or superpowers in this world, I felt sad and dissapointed promising myself to cosplay the Winter Soldier one day.

On the bright side, the marathon was amazing (this marathon, I like it, another!) as well as the newest entry into the franchise. Although, I think I still haven’t seen my personal favourite Avengers film (my current Marvel top 2 consisting of Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Age of Ultron was great – don’t believe anyone who tells you otherwise!

I’m not a Marvel connoisseur so I cannot go into the details of how some character talks and all that stuff. All I know is that I enjoyed myself watching the 3D version on a big screen in Dolby Atmos. Now I’m going to sit back and wait for Ant-Man. Really?

I wonder for how long can something like Marvel’s Cinematic Universe keep on going?

Neo Japan 2202

Concept artist Johnson Ting has created a super cool look for a dystopian Japan. Apparently he’s aiming to make Neo Japan first into a book and then into a video game (YES PLEASE)!

Here’s a bit of a back story: “In the year 2200, corruption in the world has reached its peak, even police officers are involved in terrorist attacks. In Japan, Neorai Industries has successfully launched its Neo Keisatsu joint project with the government, and replaced all existing human officers into A.I powered mechas. Mass riots appeared throughout Japan by ex-officers and worried citizens, but the riots were contained efficiently and almost immediately with the merciless Neo Keisatsus. They soon proved that mechas are indeed better in handling tasks and duties than human beings, as crime rate lowers and corruption seems to fade out from Japan, they reannounced “Japan” to “Neo Japan” in the year 2202. Many still doubts the Neo Keisatsu project till this day, as machines are still machines, it can still be controlled and if fallen into the wrong hands, the outcome would be unimaginable. ”

While in despair over my final short film project which I believe I shall fail, I sought solace in successful and beautifully executed short films and found this sci-fi beauty by Saman Kesh, who by the way has directed bunch of awesome music videos which are worth checking out!

The Guest

As the film world is gearing up towards the end of the summer, September seems to be full of intriguing thriller releases here in the UK. One of them comes from the makers of the wonderful and brutal You’re Next.

The Guest, starring the ever-so-charismatic Dan Stevens, looks cold, mysterious and promising. A soldier makes his way into the Peterson family by claiming to have been a friend of their son who died while serving in Afghanistan. Yet, a string of what appear to be accidental deaths seems to follow David raising suspicions about who he really is.


With all the buzz surrounding Boyhood I felt like I had to see it mainly because of that. Until, a friend of mine asked what it is that makes the film so good? I realized that the best (and maybe only) point I could make was that it was shot over the course of 12 years recording the growth (both physical and mental) of one family and especially the son Mason (Ellar Coltrane).

I’m glad the hype was justified. Directed by Richard Linklater, this unique film is a beautiful drama centring on a boy’s life from his childhood to the first steps of adulthood. The years, all 12 of them, switch from one to another smoothly in process casting some childhood nostalgia on the early 2000s. The best way I can describe the film is that it gives you that feeling when you just have a small, content smile on your face whether for the childhood memories, the family love, the humour, or something else. That is not to say that Mason’s life is without hardships though. On the contrary, there’s the divorce, the missing for a father, the drunk step-fathers, constant moving and leaving friends behind, being the ‘artsy’ kid and all the struggles of coming-of-age. What works though is the fact that the accounts feel real, somehow truthful to life, realistic – a goal the director must’ve had in mind otherwise why go through the trouble of working on the project for so many years, right?

This is definitely a unique and authentic example of great cinema that won’t be forgotten any time soon. And so, it’s definitely a must-see!

This never ceases to be extremely chill and spot on.
