Obsessed: The Newsroom

Suddenly it’s Christmas! Not only is Breaking Bad back on its final season, but  another awesome series is keeping me glued to the telly on sunday nights. From the brilliant mind of Aaron Sorkin, The Newsroom is just as intense as it is freaking compelling! Obviously thought provoking, it tackles on mostly political issues that shaped current …

TO ROME WITH LOVE

Woody Allen, in my opinion, is dysfunctional and creepy. Yet, I like his movies. Apart from his revolting personal relationship, he’s undeniably a gifted writer and director. Having seen Annie Hall, 3 times and  Midnight in Paris, approximately 10 times, it’s clear that I’m a fan of his work. It’s been noted that he makes …

Movie Review: The Hunger Games

I have given this review enough time for everyone to calm down, for the moment to pass when everybody was fresh from the theaters with varying opinions and the movie was trending in just about everywhere. So here’s my two cents worth: I enjoyed the movie. I think it fairly stayed faithful to the book. …

I do think they’re underrated, which is a shame considering that they’re very talented musicians. During the concert, their vocalist Issac …

Fear Factor:Sushi

I was never a fan of sushi. There’s something uncomfortable about. The thought that i’m eating raw fish gives me the creeps. I’ve always wondered how the sushi loving people do it,considering the plethora of sushi places all over the world. My sister for one, loves it. She also didn’t eat it before but since …

Literary Heroes

Atticus Finch comes a really close second as to who is my literary hero of all time. A character who stood by his principles, he was an outstanding man of great honor. But without batting an eyelash, Edmond Dantes is my top pick. For those who read The Count of Monte Cristo (best book in the world, …
