Watching “Rome”

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrkhan @ 3:03 pm


When I first heard of this new series HBO was scheduling to release, I got really excited and couldn’t to get my hands on it. Due to school and time, I immediately forgot about it but it was always in my mind.

I have just finished the fourth episode, and so far its has been going really great. The depth of characters are getting really interesting. In a time of no moral obligation and slavery, everyone is looking for their back, trickery is at the heart of everything. I have not really read any books on Rome and about Julius Caesar so I don’t really know if this is all true, but this provides a really good background of Rome for anyone who downside know much about it.

“Mission Impossible III” movie review

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrkhan @ 2:41 pm

To be honest, I wasn’t really accepting much from this new installment, because after the matrix, Spiderman, X-Men and other action movies have done a great job of achieving the impossible. Judging by the story of Tom’s personal life in the movie, it seems this might be the last installment of the series but you can never know, just look at James Bond.

There are some really good scenarios and plenty of action, one of the best action movies out this summer.

“Final Fantasy Advent Children” Movie Review

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrkhan @ 7:44 am

Basic.
After being taunted for months and months on the North American release date, I was verge of giving up. Finally, all that wait was too some extent worth it. What do I mean to some extent, well, aside from beautiful graphics and fast action fighting scenes, I was totally lost in the story line. I have to admit, I am not a major fan of Final Fantasy series, but I have played several of them to be able to understand what is going on. Anyways, I was able to grasp the purpose of the movie’s plot and I am glad it had one, or else it would have been another animation movie.

Pro.
If you have been playing Final Fantasy video games or watching the latest movies, you would have noticed that the whole notion of the story is about mother nature or simply planet Earth. When “Final Fantasy Spirits Within” came out a while back, it dealt with the same concept of saving the earth by seeking potential life forms all across the planet, which had been lost under a alien attack. Now, if you look at the plot of Advent Children, it deals with the same concern of appreciating life and be able to protect it in order to live a wonderful life.

Now if you compare the Advent Children to our problem concerning that amount of pollution were are producing, to vaging wars and expanding industrial contruction to all corners of the earth, we can learn a good lesson from the movie.

“16 Blocks” movie with a message

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrkhan @ 8:48 pm

Basic
I don’t know about you, but everytime I see Bruce Willis in a movie he is always playing the role of a cop. Don’t get me wrong, he one of the best actors in Hollywood, but he needs to play a different role once in a while to establish himself in a Oscar position. Another new actor Mos Def, who played a amazing role in this movie, needs to be recognized and I suspect he would be inline with major motion pictures studio’s in the future. Both Bruce and Mos were great together and displayed emotions and chemistry

Pro
People can change, a major theme in the movie shows, its never too late to make a difference and that’s where Bruce Willis character comes into the play. Along with him, Mos Def who also sees a better future for himself and the only way he can make that happen lies in the hand of Bruce Willis character. In a case of god cop vs bad cop, Bruce Willis must make a decision between his fellow police officers or the character of Mos def. With suspense at every corner and fast often unpredictable situation makes this movie one of the best movies out this year.

“The Broker” by John Grisham Review

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrkhan @ 9:02 pm

Basic
From the top, anyone interested in learning the culture, language to some extent, and people about Italy should really read this book. In some ways it as quick tour guide if you ever wanted to travel the streets of Milan, or Bologna and savior the taste of fresh coffee and exquisite bakery.

Joel Backman, a powerful broker in state of Washington or the whole United States for that matter, get his hand on something which invendently gets the best of him. Through the help of the President soon to be kicked out of the Oval Office and a long CIA executive, Backman gets sent to a European country for a special mission which will determine the future of satellite domination.

Pro
John Grisham, another unknown author to me, provides a very complex story but at the same time makes it imaginable with descriptive analysis of characters, and situation. The story not only gives a amazing back drop where Backman must survive and become costumed to the culture, and language but it gives a discomfort overview of the world of satellite. What I mean by discomfort is not about not understand what the book is talking about but rather the control which developing nations have over us. No one is the world is safe anymore, with globalization erupting everywhere, the world has never seem so small before.

Great read accept the at the end of the book, where everything seems to happen so fast with multiple storylines coliding together to give the whole picture.

Having I been waiting to get my hands a professional camera, all I can say, it’s been too long. When I first got my digital camera, it was Sony’s CyberShot DSC P series, it did it’s job and it got really good pictures when I went to Pakistan but deep inside I was never satisfied, I wanted something more powerfull and more control.

So I summoned the courage to search for the ultimate consumer freindly, professional SLR and comparing one and other, I finally reached my verdict. Sony’s CyberShot DSCH1 series is one heck of a camera. With amazingly large screen (2.5″), fastest power switch considering a high-end camera, and as light as my orginal camera.

Pro
One of the reasons, why I went to bought such a expensive and quality camera because whenever I would strike a pose at a picture, I would be blown away, baffled, and I would want to achieve the same result. My DSCH1, out performs everything I imagined in a Digital Camera, it gives me the power of precision in several multitudes, the control of every shot and the quality I strive for so much.

With its 12x Optical Zoom, 48x Digital Zoom, it gets the picture I always want. To better view the results, it provides a 2.5 inch viewing screen for greater satisfaction, and ergonomically placed controls that get the job done as fast as possible. With Multitude of features, Sony CyberShot is one digital camera no one should miss out on.

Video games targeted as violence’s common denominator

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrkhan @ 5:13 pm

Imagine a kid leaving his home to go to school where he believes he is getting into a education environment, making friends, and just have fun but suddenly finds out will soon end with two other teenagers who want to create violence and express their anger on other individuals. You don’t have to imagine that because it has already happened, in the case of Columbine High School and you would probably know about it in the movie of Bowling for Columbine by Roger Moore. Several policticans and parents didn’t understand as to why would 15 or 16 years would do such things and if it is anger, where is it coming from. During the same time, video games had been becoming increasingly popular and in different genres, first-person shooter was a major hit in the mind of teenagers.

So a logical conclusion policticans stated was that Video games created a virtual environment for teenagers to target an object or a person and eliminate them repetitively. In the movie by Roger Moore, he argues that the same day which Columbine incident took place, earlier that morning President Bill Clinton ordered a massive attack on a foreign country, or that the same state has no sigificant security in place to stop under-age individuals to possess a fire arm. Why was it so easy to blame on video games, well because it was easy, nobody took the time to understand, the environment those two teenagers lived in, or the community, the government policies, or basic parental support.

More and more I see the blame of Toronto’s violence being blamed on video games, or banning of certain video games that show explicit images or mature content gameplay. I my self have played lots of first-person shooter before and never in my life ever thought of actually going out and doing harm to an individual. The key factors that make that violence take place is the environment they live in, the education system, the government itself to some extent and youth support. Its time to take away the video games as a escapegoat and start funding communities to overcome the violence
