5 reasons to cheer on Noah
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 03-29-2014
1.  It's an opportunity for conversation Imagine the scene: Friend " I have been thinking a lot about God lately." You "Which god is that? Is it the God as revealed in the Bible?" Friend "I'm not sure. I just can't get the story of Noah out of my head." You "Well if your thinking doesn't match that of Genesis 6:9 and the following verses then you have strayed from God's revelation." Friend "Oh I thought you'd be happy I was thinking about God." When an Oscar nominated filmmaker decides…

Recognising the gravity of your situation.
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 02-21-2014
I have just watched the multi award winning film Gravity. I can see why it picked up so many golden globe and bafta accolades and has now walked away with 7 oscars including best director. I watched it; ironically on a plane to Los Angeles- there is something disconcerting watching someone else facing disaster on a flight. With the amount of turbulence on our transatlantic flight it felt like the pilot was going the extra mile to make sure we had the full multisensory experience!   I am very pleased…

Why Everything is not awesome
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 02-20-2014
As it's been half term it's been great to have more time to hang out with my children.  We are big into movies in our house so over the week we went to see the Lego Movie and rented Cloudy with  a chance of meatballs 2. ( I have been watching a lot of movies lately - see here for my spoiler free Gravity review) Both films are brilliantly animated and feature some A-list voice over celebrities. Both films tick the box for family appeal with enough jokes for adults…

So not everyone is wired to be an awesome public speaker, but everyone can get better. Here are 5 ways Michael Bay can get better after this car crash of a public speaking engagement. [youtube link="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4rMy1iA268" width="590" height="315"] 1. Don't rely on Technology I know this is ironic not just because Michael Bay's movies all rely on tech rather than substance and because I love technology and am very happy to use Keynote or video or Prezzi to speak from. It is also ironic because this was a Samsung launch…

I got to see an advance preview of this film and I loved it. Short Term 12 is a residential care home for young adults. It is staffed by a team of twenty somethings who act as security guards, drug inspectors, counsellors and friends to the young people from troubled backgrounds. The film centres around the relationships of two of the staff: Grace and Mason and two of the young residents of the Short Term 12: Jayden and Marcus. It is Nate’s first dayt working as a carer at the…

Must admit I am looking forward to watching Idris Elba play Nelson Mandella in the "Long Walk To Freedom" biopic. After "The Wire" and "Luther" it's about time he got a good meaty role to play. He got such a lame role in Thor it's good to get to see him land such a huge role. Love the look of this movie and of course a new U2 song "Ordinary love" to go with it is a coo. But looking at the trailer I do have a couple of questions:…

Skyfall and Adele
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 10-04-2012
The Bond marketting machine is in full overdrive now. Must admit I thought it was a clever move having Adele do the theme. What do you make of this? Does it show Adele to have a voice that is pale imitation of Shirley Bassey - it doesn't grab me as a Goldfinger replacement as the most memorable Bond theme ever. Growing up A view to a Kill was my favourite - what is yours?

5 Things to enjoy about the Dark Knight Rises
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 07-20-2012
  Just come home from watching the Dark Knight Rises and really enjoyed it. The story line is gritty, the baddies are so brutally powerful making Batman look so weak and feeble. Its a 12A that's probably right - it seemed less violent in one sense than Dark Knight - no pencil in the eyeball kind of moment that I can remember. I took my 13 and 12 year old boys to see it and they really enoyed it. i think they could have handled it from age 10 and…

Lego Inception

LEGO 'INCEPTION' from VFX on Vimeo. Love this video. Just heard Christopher Nolan definitely won't be making a 4th Batman movie. So I am hoping this isnt the closest we get to Inception 2. Here are some reflections on a mission event I did on Inception not long ago.

Hunger Games Review
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 03-23-2012
Following a recent trend in teen fiction the Hunger Games is a dark and dystopian view of the future. Based on the first of a trilogy of novels the film tells the story of Katniss Everdeen's quest for survival in a state sponsored televised, gladiatorial fight to the death between 24 teenagers. The film draws on a number of other films but somehow manages to be greater than the sum of its parts. A Battle Royale (2000) A japanese film about a class of 9th grade children who are kidnapped…
