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...
"I have lived most of my life surrounded by my enemies. I would be grateful to die surrounded by my friends."Dare I must say that this movie is one risky and ambitious work. How so? A Marvel movie with no single (backup) movies (I'm looking at you The Avengers), filled with unknown characters with limited backstories and sets in an unfamiliar universe; how is it going to work exactly? But I had my...
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...
"A collection of movements and ideologies aimed at defining, establishing, and defending a state of equal political, economic, cultural, and social rights for women."That, feminism, as what Wikipedia described it. The word feminisim itself has undergone a lot of interpretations and sometimes can cause quite an issue. Feminism is also mistaken (a lot) as women's way to get out of problems, and also...
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're only a monster if you behave like one."Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is just sooooo popular that everyone seems to have a theory that everything involving the infamous character would grant truckload of dimes. At least that was director-screenwriter Stuart Beattie thought, by making a spin-off based on Kevin Grevioux's graphic novel, in Underworld style; gothic-like battle between so called...
"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...
"Let me tell you something. There's no nobility in poverty. I've been a poor man, and I've been a rich man. And I choose rich every fucking time."After 4 outstanding collaborations in Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed and the most recently Shutter Island, the dynamic duo of a 71-year-old director Martin Scorsese and the 40-year-old-Oscar-nominated-actor-who-sa dly-never-won-a-single-trop...
