[Review] Childhood's End

The three part mini series is not exactly an adaptation. They treated the source material fairly freely, but that is not necessary a bad thing. Clarke wrote his novel in the middle of Cold War (1958), so there was a divided world - there was Communist World and Democratic World. I remember reading it around the time I read Orwell's 1984, when I was in my mid-teens. Both books are horrific depictions, painting a bleak image of humanity. But somehow, after stripping Childhood's End of any "signs of time" and leaving the bare story, it appears clear how abysmally depressing it really is.

Watched in 2016 - Z-Class Movies

Friday evening, a relaxing bath, a gallon glass of wine - all this sets up a perfect mood for watching a movie. And what is more relaxing than watching sharks eating people? Or tremors swallowing up the Eiffel Tower? You are absolutely right - not much.
My affinity for Z-class movies stems from the deep need of human psyche - to see bad guys get what they deserve and to experience a total havoc wrecked upon the face of the Earth... I mean the... ugh, anthropological value, yeah.
The post everyone has been waiting for!
Probably not.

Throwback Thursday Part 13


Today's Throwback Thursday leads us to... the 90's! More specifically - to the movie (only!) soundtracks from the 90's. Also, I don;t care if the song, if there's any, was recorded earlier. It appeared on the 90's soundtrack.
I hope you enjoy!

Throwback Thursday Part 12

The December has come. So today's Throwback Thursday takes us back to 12 songs for each month. This time - not my association with any of them, only one representing each month because of the lyrics.
