I knew going to see this film that I’d be disappointed. Was a big fan of the game but I’d heard negative things about this film. Often when that happens you go to the cinema with your bucket of popcorn and are pleasantly surprised that the film isn’t as dreadful as you’d feared. Unfortunately that just isn’t the case with Max Payne.
the basic plot involves detective Max Payne who is trying to find the 3rd man of a gang that killed his wife and child. To that end he has moved to the cold case department, where he sits, pretty much alone and doing the whole brooding thing. Then another murder might provide a clue as to the identity of the killer.
This is an odd sort of a film. I mean, it clearly isn’t meant to be full of praise for George W. Bush. But at the same time it is almost gentle in its treatment of him. Presenting him as a somewhat simple-minded, but well-intentioned, fool. With Daddy Issues. The film cuts back and forward […]

I meant to write about the withdrawal of the HPV vaccination when I heard mention of it on TV3 yesterday, or the day before. But I forgot about it. Luckily Ginger Pixel reminded me, and alerted me to an interesting idea. A Ray Darcy show listener suggested that people send emails with photos of their […]
She could not remember a time when she had not known the story; she had grown up knowing it.
Aerin is the only child of the king of Damar, yet she has never really been accepted there. The story of her mother, witchwoman who enspelled her father, has left her untrusted. Especially by the sol, the aristocracy. But slowly she finds a role and a place for herself. And in the end she is the one who becomes:”(this is not really a spoiler. Cause it is a YA fantasy novel. How do you really expect it to end?)”: both inspiration and legend.
This is the first book in King’s seven book series, The Dark Tower, which I’ve been meaning to get started on for a good while now. It is labelled as a fantasy series, but with King you always get some form of horror. And for that reason I decided to add this to my RIP challenge reading list. The Gunslinger introduces the reader to Roland of Gilead, the gunslinger of the title, and the world in which he lives. It echoes many things of our world, maybe at some point in the future, after the world has “moved on”
