When Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer star in a movie, you expect it to be one worth watching and their latest movie, Malavita a.k.a. The Family, was one good movie I watched recently. The movie is about the family of an ex-mafia boss who ratted out on his friends therefore the FBI had to change his identity and hide him and his family all they way in Normandy, France where they should be able to live in peace, but their old violent habits happen to sneak back on them and eventually, their old mafia friends discover their whereabouts and come back for revenge.

One of two movies I really wanted to watch was The Heat, starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. It was out in June, and I waited for it to arrive to the cinemas in Kuwait all summer long but that didn’t happen because it was banned along with The Internship. Luckily both comedy movies weren’t banned in Dubai and after watching both of them I see absolutely nothing that would cause them to be banned. I deduct that comedy and laughter must be an cause for censorship these days.  Read more »

Movie Review: The Internship

I’ve seen the trailer for this movie a while back and I knew it was one movie I really wanted to watch. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are two salesmen who lose their jobs and they look everywhere but can only, and miraculously, secure an internship at the one and only Google. Having to compete against a herd of geeky genius seniors with zilch knowledge of how computers work, you know their internship would be one long interesting adventure.   Read more »

Movie Review: Oblivion

By | April 14, 2013

mrobtcI went to see Oblivion last weekend for its been a while since something good arrived to the big screens. I didn’t think feel overly excited after watching the trailer, it looked like another post-apocalyptic movie where the survivors roam the earth fending off yet to be found dangers. But it was Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman starring so why not?

To my surprise I enjoyed the movie a lot. True it was too Read more »

What is going on?

By | January 18, 2012

I was trying to read something in Wikipedia when all of a sudden this black page comes on and won’t budge! What legislation? What happened? I thought the politic turmoil was concentrated in the Middle East? Has it reached the USA and effecting the internet?!

I am already imagining life with limited internet and I am panicking! What is going on? I don’t want to read on and on of political rubbish. If you can explain it simply to me please do. Should we do something? If it is a US legislation thing can our voices be heard? If not then it is totally unfair for our voices to be cast away when when a decision like that is going to effect every single human being using the internet on the planet!

Guess who performed in Kuwait in 1977?

By | June 29, 2011

Yesterday I was in 360 Cinescape when I saw an exhibition of the Cinema’s History and artifacts in Kuwait. It is so worth a visit and I enjoyed it very much. What caught my attention however is the stars who once sang in cinema Al Andalus. I knew Abdul halim, fairuz,om Kalthom sang there in the golden ages of Kuwait. I didn’t know that bands like Boney M did too! O someone who looks like the Opera’s Pavarotti but I am not sure and that guy who screams in Rocky Movie and sings living in America -dunno his name-!

I am trying to imagine Kuwaiti men i the 70’s, big hair or long hair with Charleston trousers filing in to Al Andalus cinema and dancing to Daddy Cool and No Woman No Cry! What happened? Why do we have to board a plane to Dubai and Abu Dhabi to listen to good music? In the SIXTIES and SEVENTIES of the past CENTURY we had bands playing in our country… why can’t we have the same in the 2nd decade of the 21st century? He who wants to listen can go listen, he who doesn’t want to can stay at home. Live and let live!

I want to see Ballet, Swan Lake, Lord of the Dance, Opera, Fairuz, something… anything in my own country. It’s not my fault I was born too late in the 80’s y3ni!

Censorship + Cinescape + 7 Pounds +Quarantine = Severe Headache

censor

 

I would really really like to find a thread of logic between what scenes the scissors of the censorship decides to cut???

Last week, i was watching 7 Pounds. There is a scene where Will Smith says you Son of a B****… the curse is cut, very bluntly, but then you could read tarjama in arabic Read more »
