/ˈtēmˌwərk/, as Dictionary.com defines, is a cooperative or coordinated effort on the part of a group of persons acting together as a team or in the interests of a common cause. Or is it? Being a college student, I am profoundly familiar with that very term and I can say that it is mostly a fairytale for that to work. My most recent experience was that I have to work 6-straight-hour to get an...
I'm quite sure some of you have got tagged by your friends to do this #20FactsAboutMe challenge. Well, so did I. And honestly, I actually did it on Instagram but I deleted it because I thought Instagram wasn't the place for doing so. Until then I was browsing randomly and visited Elbert Reyner's blog and there was it, another challenge, this time from Mr. Cinephile himself, on blog. So, I took the...
I just had this small dinner talk with my parents about their experiences on treating people food and getting treated by them in return. In my parents' line of habits (which mostly are inevitably absorbed by me), we always have the same (quite bad) principle of not once having to experience eating with lack of meat, which sometimes grows more to excessive (we order 4 main courses and 2 sides for 3...
In debating and/arguing, there's an art of throwing facts from one opponent to another. The facts, however, can only be delivered well if the speaker understands the art of delivering so, because the slightest mistake can turn the event ugly. There're some minor details that give big impacts in terms of differentiating whether you are stating the facts or that you are insisting your facts. Winning...
For some of you who are new to this blog, here's a little fact for you ...When I first started this blog, it was my path of expressing my feeling, either to whine, to comment, to protest or oftenly, to share. And I haven't done any of that for a while. Worst, I deleted my old posts; it was a big step up for me because it was like deleting parts of you that you might forget about. It's not a wise d...
To begin with, this is a free, fully opiniated essay regarding my ongoing questions of man in general. One of which tickles my notion; why do men put a liberty upon themselves to declare that they are taking or in feeling of taking a dump? It seems that, no matter how distant/close someone to them, they have this natural freedom granted for declaring so, out loud. And not to mention, burping and f...
The sole reason I bought the first book was that I love Kurt Hummel and the guy who played him happens to write a fiction book out of Brothers Grimm's classic tales. And boy did I regret nothing. I was truly amazed by how profound Colfer's imagination is; he twists each and every characters in the fairytales we know and connects them all in one big link called Bailey Twins, all without losing the...
"We were close once, we started this whole Expendables thing together but... we had a falling out."The Expendables has always been this : a group of aging bulletproof men who fire at (almost) everything, dodge every bullets and explosions, and still manage to keep it low-tech and smile proudly at last. The last two predecessors opted to adopt the same formula; classic action stars doing impossible...
"But heroes are not born, they're created. That's what your father and I were trying to do: create heroes."Was a hit animation series on Nickelodeon in the late 80s, which later rebooted into a live action movie under the care of director Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath Of The Titans, Battle of LA) and producer Michael Bay (Transformers, Armageddon), the four mutant, turtle, ninja, and also teenagers ar...
It's before Divergent. Before Tris. Before all. I specifically enjoyed Tris's POV in Divergent trilogy and I definitely hooked for Four's character, as being told by Tris. And when I heard Roth's promise of making a backstory about Four, into a bundle of book, I couldn't get more excited. This book is written using Four's POV, which was how Roth made the trilogy narrated by at first. I specificall...
Hi there. First to say, I'm sorry because I left this blog for quite some time due to my unpredictable schedule. Fortunately, I'm on my holiday now, so I took the liberty to redeem myself and you all. As you MUST have noticed, there're some major changes happening on this blog. Junebug has undergone a lot of changes, but dare I must say that this one was the greatest.Having to alter this blog in s...
There's this popular saying : "Ask, so that you won't get lost." I'm not completely against it; God gifted us a mouth to ask and to answer, ears to listen and a brain to process. And in order to do that, you have to interact with other people; it's like a nature of giving and taking, asking and answering, getting understanding and gaining good deeds. There's a curiosity in asking and there's a kno...
"You said you could save him, but what kind of a life will he have?"Like I oftenly said before, remaking movies became some sort of Hollywood trend nowadays, not minding how highly unnecessary it was to do so. This time, it was Paul Verhoeven's 1987 original Robocop's turn (the second time Verhoeven's movie got a remake after Len Wiseman's 2012 Total Recall). Steered by director José Padilha and...
"You have the ability to be the special because I believe in you."Everyone plays LEGO. Or at least, ever played with one. I was around 5 when I found myself building houses using this 80-year-old Danish interlocking plastic blocks. So when I heard about this movie, I couldn't help but wondering "How do you make a movie about colorful, hard, and rigid plastic toys? Will it be just another toys-to-m...
Hey there. I know it's been quite some time since I posted something other than movie/book review. I've been incredibly busy adjusting my time as a freshman in college, which -I'm telling you- full of burden.I guess some of you already know that I'm not quite fond with the major and the university in which I'm at (and taking), with all the possible reasons and excuses my head could come up with,...
"You're nothing to me until you're everything."I don't wanna use the word "ambitious" for this movie, simply "bedazzling". Why? First, it's directed by David O. Russell. Remember that guy? Yes, the guy who brought you The Fighter and Silver Lining Playbook; Oscar cliché. Up, the expectation was, to 50%. Second, its line of actors. Elevated, the expectation was, to 75%. Third, came the word "Some...
