The Dark Knight Rises hypothesis/pre-review

I know the title seems confusing, but hear me out. As I am a big fan of Batman and Nolan's Batverse, I have doused myself in the mythology, the hints and clues that Nolan and co. have been tossing about lately and way back when about this final chapter of the Nolan Batman-saga. Also, as [...]

Prometheus 3D

Huh, it's strange to be writing about something fairly new for a change. I've been so terribly bogged down with my dissertation and other stuff for the past academic year, that my blog contributions suffered. Well, died down actually. But here we go with Prometheus!

I've been quite bogged down with other stuff, and three of my stories I wanted to post here I couldn't earlier as they were a part of my Magazine production course [...]

Tron: Legacy

''It’s biodigital jazz, man''. That line, delivered by his Dudeness, Jeff Bridges as Kevin Flynn, pretty much sums up Tron: Legacy. Just like jazz, it’s an experience overall yet consists of brilliant musicians, or areas of production in this analogy, even though you might not appreciate them all and some are better than the others.
