star wars: the last jedi, a movie review (no spoilers)

Never walk in a movie theatre with expectations. Never walk in movie theatre to watch the latest part of a well established movie series with expectations. Especially, Star Wars.

So, yesterday, I watched the first day first show of The Last Jedi in Delhi. A total of 10 people were sitting in the theatre, 3 of them fast asleep. 2 of those were my cousins and the third one my aunt. My uncle and I had been planning for 4 years to watch a Star Wars movie together, it finally happened.

03/01/17 : TV shows and films might be our best mentor

So I watched the new episode of Sherlock Holmes today. It was awesome! Though I did not like the ending. As usual I learned something new. You cannot run away from death. Death will meet you at that right place. But what if we never reach that place? I know that’s not possible. But think about it. What if somehow we get to know where (and not how) we have to die and never reach that place? Not possible, I know. I don’t know if you feel the same but I find TV shows and films as my best mentor! Well they teach us more than they spoil us at least. Continue reading “03/01/17 : TV shows and films might be our best mentor”
