A good idea for a plot, the mob from the future send back targets in time to be killed by assassins in the past who then dispose the bodies. Trouble is, the looper is when you have to kill your future self. Said looper is the main character, and his future self escapes. I still […]

After reading through my traffic, it seems that everyone is interested in my review of KnK, and even the animation of the Mystic Eyes. Well, if you’re a fan of the soundtrack (just check out YouTube for some of the best tracks), then perhaps these CD covers will be nice. The first few do exist, […]

Youth in Revolt

April 4th, 2010

Not a bad movie really. Saw the trailer on my iPod (using the podcast from via iTunes) so we decided to see it yesterday. Overall, wacky fun, dual personalities and a weird premise all round (even the geeky lead is likeable to a certain extent), makes it for a good viewing. We were also […]

Getting warmer in Greece finally, the day before a National Holiday, there’s many religious festivals happening, like this one near the Olympiakos Football Stadium (on my way to work)   Aside from that, last weekend Maria and I went to see The Ghost Writer (I decided to link to IMDB for films from now on, […]

Avatar / New PC built

January 12th, 2010

Vintage blog posts

December 27th, 2009

Those of you who occasionally check out my site may have noticed few new updates, but lost of old ones. I’ve been slowly importing them from my old DeadJournal, minus relevant links (as my site was wiped), and moving them to this site with their old dates intact. It takes time and isn’t automatic sadly, […]

Two movie reviews

February 6th, 2006

lj-music: .hack//Liminality – OST – 10 – Humiliation Munich, by Spielberg. Was drawn by the trailer, knowing a little of what happened in ’72. Went to see it with Maria on Saturday. Basic plot: After the deaths of the athletes, a man is hired to go and kill the people who masterminded it, leaders of […]
