Spartacus: Gods Of The Arena, The Flawed Guru, TV Review

Spartacus: Gods Of The Arena

Like I said in my review of the first season of Spartacus, Blood And Sand, I actually watched this prequel half season/miniseries first, which at the time was short-sighted, seeing as the first episode of this series pretty much recaps every major thing that happens in season 1. But despite that, I did watch it,…

The Raid

There’s one thing I always find funny about how I operate as a cineophile. You see, I love seeing new films at the cinema, and I try to see 80% of everything that comes out that way, but that’s not to say I don’t catch classic films that get shown on the big screen from…

The Flawed Guru, Dream Diary

Dreams – Week 3

Well, with 3 weeks now under my belt with my new dream diary, and my second dive into the world of the subconscious, after nearly a decade away from it, I must say things are progressing nicely. One sign of this is the amount of recall from this week’s dreams, which I’m both remembering more…

Jason Statham, The Flawed Guru, Awesome Life Moments

Awesome Life Moments – #1

A few weeks back, I had just finished work, which I do at 4.30pm every day, and was driving home enjoying the late afternoon of a beautiful summer day. I had my window down, arm out tapping on the roof to the beat of the stereo that was blasting Alice In Chains, I had a…

Spartacus: Blood And Sand, The Flawed Guru, TV Review

Spartacus: Blood And Sand

Back when I was living in Auckland, New Zealand, the show Spartacus was being made, and having worked in the film industry as long as I had, I knew a whole bunch of people working on it. One of those also happened to be my flat mate for a couple of years, and he was…

The Book Thief, The Flawed Guru, Movie Review, Film Review

The Book Thief

Seeing as I work in the film industry, working for a tech company that builds online tools for the international online movie industry, means we often find ourselves chatting about films we’ve seen, films we want to see, and even a couple of us about films we want to make. Today was one of those…

The Celebration, The Flawed Guru, Movie Review, Film Review

The Celebration

With my challenge of watching all the films in the IMDB top 250 nearly finished, means I’ve been taking my time with the last few to help draw it out a bit longer. Though I shouldn’t bother, as the list is a fluid one that changes each day as more and more people and critics…

The Flawed Guru, Dream Diary

Dreams – Week 2

It’s been a funny old week when it comes to my dreams, as I don’t think I’ve been as focused on it as I want to be. Often one of the keys to lucid dreaming and training yourself, is to remind yourself mentally every night to remember your dreams, which I have often forgot to…

Awkward Life Moments, The Flawed Guru

Awkward Life Moments – #1

The other day, I had one of the most disgusting things in my life happen just before I was to take one of my gym classes. That morning I grabbed a cold drink bottle from the fridge, which I do every morning, and polished off half the water as part of breakfast. Healthy, I know!…

47 Ronin, The Flawed Guru, Movie Review, Film Review

47 Ronin

I remember when I first saw the trailer to 47 Ronin, as it seemed to come from out of nowhere, but yet seemed as epic as any other Hollywood blockbuster that comes out during the summer or holiday season, and I couldn’t figure out how it got past me. But when I searched my memory,…
