    The Bridge on the River Kwai

    I'd like to dedicate this entry to my great-grandfather, who died of dysentery during forced labour on the Birma Railway. He and his family moved from the Netherlands to Netherlands-India, now Indonesia to become teachers before the 2nd World War. When the war broke out, my grandmother, her sisters and their mother where moved into Jap camps; the men were sent off to aid in construction of the Birma Railway where he died of something that could easily have been…

    This is such an amazing piece of work; put in the shoes of someone who loses his sight, halfway through his lifetime, which is one of my personal worst nightmares, I felt tears well up throughout most of this film. Sight is so essential to my every being, I cannot describe how awful it felt to me, to put myself in the shoes of someone losing perhaps the most important sense of all.

Something that works tremendously well with this film and its themes.
    I saw the color version years ago and this was a completely new experience.

    Slayer: The Repentless Killogy

    The Repentless Killogy basically consists of 2 parts; an anthology of videoclips from the band with a thin storyline combining them, followed by a concert registration of an LA gig they did a few years ago.
    The show itself is solid, what you would expect from a Slayer show.
    The video clips are unfortunately quite awful. The story tying them together more so. Mindless, over the top action and gore void of a point. An attempt was made I suppose.
    Overall I got out of this screening what I was expecting; Slayer on the big screen phoning in a pretty solid performance.

    This film is sort of like that scene from the Hobbit where Bilbo is overwhelmed by all the dwarves coming in and eating all his food and using all his dishes, except way, way, waaaaaaay worse. Apocalyptically worse.
