I cant help but love these 3 movies over, and over, and over again. The first of my favorites is ‘After the Promise” starring NCIS’s very own famous Mark Hamorn. Released back in 1987, After the Promise is the story ofย a carpenter in a small Californian town in the 1930s. Struggling to bring up his 4 young sons after the loss of his wife to cancer, The story follows his struggle to get his sons back after the Government (citing trumped-up charges of parental neglect) places the boys into various foster homes and institutions. It also follows the abuse the boys are subjected to and all the pain the carpenter (Jackson) faces to get his boys back. No matter how many times i watch this movie, i cant help but cry. Its still emotional even till today. I remember seeing it for the first time when i was still in high school and i’ve loved it ever since.

My second favorite Movie is “The Notebook” played by the gorgeous Ryan Gosling. I think just about every romantic person on the planet has seen this movie. If you haven’t, i wont give any spoilers, just go get the DVD. It’s the kind of love everyone wants and people look for in just about every nook and cranny. Funny enough this movie was actually inspired by a Real Life couple. Originally written by Nicholas Sparks, ย Sparks said he was inspired to write the novel by the grandparents of his wife, who had been married for more than 60 years when he met them. Just the thought of knowing this kind of love did and does exist out there does makes my heart warm. All the same, i still cry every time i watch it.

My latest beloved Movie is ‘The Vow”, got to see it last weekend and for some reason i got so obsessed with the storyline, i’ve ended up watching it 3 times in just 1 week. I didn’t cry through this one, but i’ve definitely been inspired to come up with 3 more love poems from this True life inspired Tale. Again if you haven’t seen this movie. Its a MUST Watch!!! grab a copy. It’s based on a true life story like i said, but what’s most intriguing is that the real Lady never got her memory back. What are the odds of falling in-love with the same person twice in 1 lifetime huh? ย 

You already know i’m a hopeless romantic and as long as there’s a cheesy love story to be told out there, i’ll keep loving these hopelessly romantic movies. If you have any favorites please do share them ๐Ÿ™‚


For the first time in a long time, i decided to buy a Blu-Ray DVD as opposed to just waiting on my Netflix delivery, and the Movie i choose to buy this time was ‘Prometheus’.

Even though i had heard from a couple of friends that it was a terrible movie, my obsession with Greek mythology and the name ‘Prometheus’ got the better of me. I couldn’t walk away from the counter the moment it came out on DVD. Now i’m left with a need to join the Crowd in Chanting the Phrase; ‘it was beautifully produced and Cinematography was damn near perfection, but the storyline wasn’t that great’.

What i do find however interesting, is the origin of this storyline and the recycling of ideas within Sci-fi. If you’re into Greek Mythology like i am, you probably already know that the Greek god Prometheus was credited with creating Man from Clay. And if you’ve been following the History Channel’s Documentary Series; ‘Ancient Aliens’, then you probably already know, much of this storyline was borrowed from proponents of the ‘Ancient Astronaut theory’ like Giorgio A. Tsoukalous.

A few years ago i remember reading works of Sitchin that echoes this storyline, so to see a full movie completely wrapped around it, is somewhat unoriginal to me. If you haven’t tied the dots here, let me quickly tie it up for you.

Economists Zecharia Sitchin is one of a few group of people to lead a new a paradigm slowly making its way into modern popular folklore. Through his major work; ‘Genesis Revisited’ Sitchin explores ancient mythology and the mysterious megalithic ruins found around the globe. from Sumeria, to Egypt, Greece and Peru. He seeks to demonstrate that there was a time in ancient history when an extraterrestrial race had genetically manipulated and manufactured mankind for various reasons, one of which includes slavery. The theory, now embraced by a lot many other writers, who have incorporated it into what is apparently a new worldview, essentially assert that these ancient Sumero-Babylonian gods, ‘the Anunnaki’, are aliens from the planet Nibiru (Sitchin’s “12th Planet”), which passes by the earth every 3,500 years and that the genesis story is a modification of a more ancient Sumerian folklore.

While the likes of Giorgio A. Tsoukalous don’t believe these ancient creating aliens may be dead. Sitchin’s school of thought seem to think these creating gods may be dead in their home planets. I’m guessing the writers of Prometheus chose to follow Sitchin’s school of thought on this one.

The only foreign idea introduced in the movie unfortunately wasn’t even original in any way. It was more or less stolen from the Movie ‘Aliens vs Predators’.

So i guess through all this, my biggest question is; ‘Is there any such thing like Pure Creativity? and above all else where does sci-fi cross over from fiction to fact and is it possible to have fact without fiction and the Choice of Belief, is that what it is, as proposed my the Movie ‘A personal choice’?

All the same, I guess it’s also a great movie since its got Idris Elba, Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender ๐Ÿ™‚

They say a picture says a thousand words.. Well I guess I’ve found a way to extract 15 thousand words from 1 picture and keep this fiction writing thing exciting and immensely enthralling.

As a kid, art was my obsession. From graffiti to animation and sketch, I could draw anything and everything. However, my lovely parents seemed to think it was a waste of time and a nuisance. So I did stop drawing just to please them….

Thanks to modern-day technology and the almighty App Store, I’ve found ways to indulge my obsession for art and animation.. What’s better though Is; my mind seems to have found a way to stare at a single picture and tell an entire story..

All I can say is; Art is beauty and beauty is art.
