Update 1: August 2016

When is the last time I saw you write a post or code a post? Hey, I'm looking at you, Wei Jay Tan. A long time ago, in a home far far away, there lived a boy named Tan Wei Jay. His picking up interest in movies have motivated him to write about them, however, as he came to discover, there are complications that come along the way while he is trying his way to pick up in terms of those things that he wants to do. Despite that, further complications has the possibility of keeping him away from doing the things that he wants to do, good things, or so he says. For those few days, he has been doing a lot of other things such as playing games/watching shows rather than writing or reading up things about daily lives. It seems, that he had lost interest in a lot of things in reality, needing time to pick up on that, perhaps he needs to come home to reality rather than continue to live in a world that doesn't exist. That world, would be the film world. But hey, as like a medicine of recovery, it takes time to recover from a disease even with the help of medicine, or a medicine working it's magic with time as it's catalyst. So what does he do? He writes a new post!

"It came to me in a restaurant." He says. (To himself that is, as he is also the person who is narrating here.) "Although I do not believe that I have thrown away the idea of hating the ways of ranking pictures. However, it is still worth executing this idea for a while." What is this idea?

"It is the idea of creating a list of good, if not great, films based upon the star rating with a maximum of four assigned to them. Closer examination would be to say that many create a list of best and worse films. So these best and worse films lists would be titled as: 'Great **** Movies', 'Great ***1/2 Star Movies', 'Great *** Movies', 'Good **1/2 Movies', etc. Until, of course in the ending, would be 'O.K. 1/2 Movies.'. But anyway, this is just an idea of creating a list based off on opinions, of course. Aren't all lists o Movies or books created based upon opinions?" Yes, indeed they are. And before I forget, lets say one thing: In reviews, we write what we want to read ourselves, in them, ain't that right? Also, sometimes we simply write because we know that no one will be reading them but ourselves. At least, that's what some of us have in mind when we write articles or reviews about movies. But it, I'm afraid, is not entirely true. When a comment offends some, that's where it gets heated up. But hey, how many of us have the guilty fun on this godforsaken place that's called the internet? Think you can always get away with the fun you have? Well, the internet never forgets. So just, wrap it up, and don't make waves, O.K.? For those kind of reviewers writing to have fun or simply commenting, I will say one thing: I'd love to see your serious side one day, that'll be the true you."

Upcoming, Kubo and the Two Strings, the latest feature from Laika Animation studios. And Steven Spielberg's The BFG. Both from 2016, and these films I would want to see them in Cinemas on the A.S.A.P. Miss it, and I might feel guilty about it. Please don't. So, this blog's come to live again, and I'm not giving up on the things I want to and like to do. Stay Tuned!!

The Jungle Book (2016), some thoughts.


I guess I have been at a blank for words when I first reviewed the Jungle Book's live action remake, but it is a majestic triumph. And I hope that I will lighten up my tone when I re-watch it on DVD again. Here is how I know when to do so.

Facebook Post

It's getting late now, and I've just finished it not long ago. I won't say much for now, only that I don't feel too well mentally at the moment, and the movie's impact didn't do it any good either. Perhaps some sleep will refresh me. I will post a Facebook post instead.

 What I have here, is my original review of Alfred Hitchcock's film, called Psycho (1960). It's originally published on 12/05/2016, and now, with a new arrangement system I have encrypted for my posts, this is republished and re-designed, with a star rating system and some of the film's credits displayed beside the film's poster.

I'm not sure will I have time to write some more, but right now I've got other things to do. I'm a schooling boy now, unlike a few months earlier, and I've got to work on the tasks at hand assigned by the school because that is the top priority. But writing keeps me in practice of my language skills, I'll keep up with it when I have more time.

In the meantime, if you got the time, take some time to read my original, non-enthusiastic review of Psycho (1960), if you have the right time and the right amount of free time, that is.

Facebook Post (And short Note)







From my Facebook post above, more is to be said about my insufficient energies to accomplish my tasks, optional and required (and urgent)ones. That drained the majority of my energy tanks and I cannot focus upon my optional tasks, and I grow impatient and grumpy.

Anyway, I'm clear now, and it is the opportunity to write something, since when I am exhausted I cannot write or watch anything with concentration and dedication. And I start to go a little bit unstable. Now, since I have some energy left, I'll write something. I've finished another complete viewing of one of my favorite films: "Bambi (1942)". And I am going to write another article regarding it, then I'll turn in early so I can recharge my batteries.


Stay Tuned!

Banner: Related Articles Page.


What you see above is the banner created for the purpose of being the top of the page for a page listing all the reviews regarding a single film.

Sometimes we don't just review a film once, we do it more than once. Anyway, right here I have, via Piktochart, created a graphic page header for an index page that links to all related articles about a title. As I have said, we don't just review a film once, we do it more than once and at times our opinions upon a film changes, either from positive to negative or from negative to positive. And therefore we might write more than one review. 


Hence, to create a page linking to all related articles of a title, this header represents it. I'll think about the rest of the design some other time, but this is just the testing phase.
