The films listed below are among many I’ve seen. None of them really made me glad or proud to have paid the expense of a ticket. Each film was disappointing in some fashion, whether it be in the way or ways they were executed or just in general principle. Never the less, this is the list of recent movies you should really try to avoid.

The Wicker Man (2006) – Starring Nic Cage (Leaving Las Vegas), this movie is like a bad trip. It’s got witches but no witchcraft. It’s got understandable suspense but no plot. It’s a mess that the filmmakers should be ashamed of. When Nic Cage’s character is caught, you hope to God the witches kill him soon so this horrible attempt at a scary movie ends quickly. For more on this big, stinky pile of crap, read my full Wicker Man review.

The Black Dahlia – Starring Josh Hartnett (Pearl Harbor), Scarlett Johansson (Lost in Translation), and Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby), The Black Dahlia is a big waste of money. Not only is it predictable, not only does it feature bland, lifeless characters, but everyone and everything looks, and sounds bleak. It looks like they’re trying to say everyone who’s anyone is sick, depraved, and selfish. While “Bucky” Bleichert (Hartnett) is trying to identify the murder of a woman, desperate to get ahead in the movies, he’s got to tackle such obstacles as a sexy and seductive young woman in Kay Lake (Johansson), the wiles of a tawdry and illusive rich young woman in Madeleine Linscott (Swank). Then, among other things, director Brian De Palma tries to copy some of the same tastes, colors, and nuances of this writer’s other big movie, LA Confidential. Not only does this feel like every other period mystery since Chinatown, but it’s depressing too.

The Covenant – Starring Steve Strait (Sky High), this teen-with-super-powers movie feels like Cruel Intentions and Skulls meet Sky High. It’s contrived. The effects aren’t as great as they looked on the trailers. The screenplay sounds like more like a Lindsay Lohan horror film than something intelligent. If you want to see a freaky film with intelligence and super powers, rent Final Destination. Plus, these vampiritic, mischievous teens are less appealing than Gary Oldman as Count Dracula himself.

Crank – Starring Jason Statham (The Transporter) plays a hit man who has to keep his adrenaline up or he will die. While the concept sounds sort of cool, the way in which the story was executed is crazy and unclear. There is a serious problem with the cameraman. He doesn’t seem to have the ability to hold the camera straight. In effect, much of the action is choppy, bouncing, blurred, and maybe even too fast for the human eye. This has been a problem with most of the other recent action films, but this time it seems the filmmakers hit a new low. Crank is definitely not worth the price of admission.

Gridiron Gang – Starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (Walking Tall), this movie turns out to be more of an idea than a feel-good movie. With the exception of main character John Porter (Johnson), its characters are unsympathetic and uninteresting. After the recent, much more effective, Invincible, this concept feels recycled. Football coach, John Porter tries to teach a group of juvenile delinquents how to work together and play together while also giving them a sense that they’re worth more than they think. If I was going to make a movie of this kind, I would not going about it by showing these players’ crimes. It sort of beats down any hope of empathy. Now if you want to see a film for less money with similar ideas that is actually effective, rent either the original Longest Yard or the most recent Adam Sandler adaptation.

The Last Kiss – Starring Zach Braff (best known for his role on the TV series, Scrubs), The Last Kiss doesn’t exactly deliver the laugh in which previews promise, and the film ultimately becomes dull with the lack of a sense of humor. That is the only reason this otherwise well-made film is on this list. It’s got a nice idea, it’s got some great characters with some fine acting. But, the screenplay starts to feel like the dry stuffing of a gym mat. In beginning, the script shares a few laughs with the audience – whether it is or isn’t executed correcty – and the whole film just seems to become stale toward the end. For drama, this is not bad. But even some of the greatest, most serious dramas in the history of movies had a better sense of humor.

This has been the worst year for Hollywood, with flops pouring out from everywhere and cinema has truly reached a nadir that there are no hopes for its future prospects as there are numerous films, other than the ones mentioned above, that make you thank the almighty that you’re still alive after coming out of theatres. Its much better to tune into cyberflix apk and watch old classics of the bygone era than the travesty that are played out today in the name of cinema.

When the Happy Wheels game was launched into the market, a lot of us expected it to be just another driving/racing game that we have already seen before. The graphics are plain, simple and there is not much to expect from the gameplay that it is trying to present. However, when I was able to give Happy Wheels a try then I realized that there is a different twist to the game which is very interesting. This twist wasn’t discovered right away because the game was blocked from most countries until lately when I was able to try out Happy Wheels unblocked from a game site.001_happy-wheels What Makes Happy Wheels Unique and Special?

What makes Happy Wheels unique is that the game lets the players experience the real sensation of an accident whenever their cars suffer such mishap in the game. Bruises, broken bones, whiplash, falling unconscious and even death can be suffered by the player virtually depending on the severity of the car accident that he or she suffered due to his or her reckless driving. The controls to the game are also very simple to learn which gives you a reason to not crash your car after having a few tries of the game.001_maxresdefault

This is totally a different take on educating people on how to drive safely by letting them experience firsthand the consequences that they are going to suffer in case they get too reckless when driving. Aside from this perspective, Happy Wheels is totally entertaining and can be that type of game that can make it worth your while. You do not really have to spend lots of time just by playing it because 10 minutes or so can already be a good run for you to enjoy the game experience.

Buddhism also known as the road to nirvana. Here are the three basic concepts of Buddhism. There are some places in nirvana Singapore where you can attain power to get rid of your sufferings.

  1. The selfless man

In Buddhism the concept of ‘self’ is nothing but is an illusion. The term anatta which is very commonly used in Buddhism is composed of elements that are body, sensation, perception, will and consciousness. These elements are in a constant state of change but the following elements create the not self-illusion of continuity.


  1. Rebirth or Resurrection

As per Buddhist thoughts death of a bodily self leads to disaggregation of their re birth into another self which neither totally different nor fully identical from previous birth. An analogy is often used by many people to describe resurrection that is passing of a flame from one candle to another. That is why nirvana in Buddhism is described as the end of all the sufferings.

  1. Heaven or Nibbana

The cycle of rebirth can be broken if the hanging self is able to pass its subjective image of the world, which are both unconscious and unconscious. Consciousness is a sequence of conscious moments. Each moment of an individual’s life consists of an experience, or of the individual’s mind state such as thought, feeling, and perceptions. Rebirth is nothing but the persistence of these moments and that is how the process goes on.

Comparison of Hinduism and Buddhist doctrine


The Buddhist doctrine should not be mixed up with the Hinduism doctrine especially when it is about reincarnation. In Hindu doctrine they emphasise on ‘atma’ and its presence even after the death of the body. It is believed that after the death of the body the atma of the body resides among us for a while, usually to fulfil their unfinished desire they stay back and once their desire is fulfilled they leave for heaven.

The same is believed in Singapore doctrine, that even after death of a human being their spirits or ‘atma’ resides among us. They often show up to their near and dear ones. The sprits protect their close ones.

It is basically a television series that is put to broadcast after the noon time and with the passing days, they are followed by the experiences of the different in the enormous world of fiction.Gaby-Blaaser-GTST-640x230 The primary focus of attention in the soap operas are the emotional relationships and the interactions among the characters that play the significant roles in the same and lay an intensified impact on the target audience. Interwining of some of the story lines is common and eventually there comes an unambiguous end to the storyline.

Antiquity of soap operas

In the historic year of 1993, the very first soap opera was brought into the picture and ever since it gained immense populace by the target audience. A fifteen minutes airtime was purchased by Proctor and Gamble respectively who are the US soap manufacturers. From the total fifteen minutes, twelve of them were brought into usage for a specific radio drama series and the remaining three were highlighted as an advertisement for the exquisite soap brand that is none other the Oxydol.gtst-shortie-6-april-2016-goede-tijden-slechte-tijden-youtube-thumbnail

The derivation of the name soap opera has evolved from the well-known American soap opera. For the first time these specific broadcasts were accomplished on the radio and the sponsorship was managed by the soap manufacturers who were in favour of listening or watching the same. In past two decades, the phenomenon of soap opera has been in the trend as there are many televisions channels which magnanimously broadcast the same and have managed to captivate the attention of the audience efficiently.

Here in this piece of brief annotation, we would like to draw your attention towards the longest running and likeable dutch opera that was introduced on 1st October 1990 on the platform of RTL4 namely Good times Bad times GTST. The engaging script of the two seasons on the very first note finds its basis from the Australian series that is typically referred to as the Restless years. The derivation of the main characters was engraved from the same series and they gained populace immensely. It became a remarkable success and managed to engross the attention of the audience for a long span of time. From the year 1991 to 1995, GTST, Good Times, Bad Ties was given the prestige to be nominated for a renowned award that is Gouden Televizier Ring and fortunately in 1995, it won this prominent award and mounted high on the charts of popularity.

Ever since its launch in the television world, the show has commenced a new season every year after the super smashing summer break. At the very end of the month August, A live event of GTST is held where a platform is provisioned to the fans of the opera in order to let them meet their favourite actors and also excitingly get a glimpse of what all is happening behind the scenes. It is also a great platform to watch the most awaited first episode of the refreshing new season even before it is put on the broadcast session at the television.

What is GTST all about?

Synonymous to the series of the famous The Restless Years, in GTST, the first four seasons shifts its focus to the group of lively young people who have just completed their graduation. Each one of them in the youth have their own specific and peculiar issues and certain emotional stories that undoubtedly touch the hearts of the audience as the they deal with the elements of career, success, failure and the most complicated love. As the meaningful title says, the viewers get an invite to get a peek through the on-going good as well as the bad times throughout the lives of the characters.

Considering the fact that Netherlands depicted only a population of 16 million at that particular time, 2.7 million was a significant number. Unfortunately in the year 2008, the prominent show hit the bottom rocks as the audience was not able to make a connection with the personages in the soap opera GTST and therefore they came up with the idea to make it more original and realistic and subsequently it worked for good and managed to engage the attention of the audience to a greater level. Bringing joy and appreciation to the creators, in the year 2012, the flourishing show had its ever possible rating ever since the time of its introduction in the past six years

Overview of the Good Times and Bad times
