  • Divergent 2014

    ★★★ Watched 15 Oct, 2014

  • Michael Jackson's Thriller 1983

    ★★★★★ Watched 14 Oct, 2014

    Without a doubt one of the best music videos ever made. The cinematography is great and the story, with all its little nods, is a delight to watch. Not to mention the special effects and make-up which is just fantastic. And of course Michael Jackson's music is incredible, along with the accompanying choreography. Just a top notch video.

Through the retelling of this slice of history, Spielberg also points out the failures of language and the lack of communication, most obviously with the language barrier…
