For days now, we have been feeling extreme traffic in the Metro (even on off-peak hours). The daily torment of bad traffic has now more than doubled the travel time to and fro. Sometimes, I would just prefer to go straight home from work rather than suffer through wasted time crawling through congested streets. The Christmas Rush is definitely here. Everyone is just out and about.
I've always admired Joseph Gordon-Levitt for his capability to choose roles that are not only physically challenging but memorable as well. This is especially true in his latest upcoming film, The Walk. The film is directed by Robert Zemeckis and is based from French high wire artist Philippe Petit's book, "To Reach the Clouds".
I don't usually scour the Google Play Store for hidden-object kind of games except for the times when my mom needs new games on her tablet. This is more her kind of game than mine but when I saw Deadly Puzzles: Toymaker and read the game description, I couldn't help but be interested in trying it out. The game promised to be more than just a hidden-object game but also a kind of adventure game with psychological and crime thrills splashed in. True enough, when I first loaded the game, I was greeted by this loading screen. Already, those dolls freaked me out and all the more did I expect for the game to be worth my time.
Probably the most awaited film this December is the third and final film for The Hobbit Trilogy. Finally, Bilbo’s journey is about to come to an end and what a spectacular end it’s shaping up to be. The last film with the title, The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies is set to be released in cinemas on December 12th. As early as now, I’ve seen several cinemas already selling tickets to the movie.
The only two games that I’ve been regularly playing in my tablet for the longest time are Simpsons: Tapped Out and Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff. Both games are free from the Google Play Store. For each holiday, you can expect a game update which gives you additional games and holiday exclusive characters to unlock in each game. This Christmas it’s no different. Both games are now very festive and very much emanating the Holiday Spirit.
Christmas in Springfield
The holiday update for Simpsons: Tapped Out involves a lot of Christmas Elves. They’ve practically invaded and Santa has selected residents working hard for him at the Toy Factory.
Daniel Craig will be back next year as the world’s most loved super spy in the movie Spectre. Returning to the film as well are Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear. The great news is that an addition of exceptional actors will make the movie’s plot more interesting. These are Christoph Waltz, Léa Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci and Andrew Scott.
One of the movies coming out during Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Doctor Strange. When talk of this movie came out months back, I wasn’t at all excited that Joaquin Phoenix was being tapped for the role. I didn’t think that he looked the part and that he was right for the role. So guess what? It’s now official, Benedict Cumberbatch will be the Sorcerer Supreme! He is now the latest actor to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe which I’m sure will thrill his fans worldwide.
I had been an avid user of the Belle de Jour Power Planners ever since it came out. It had been my constant companion through the years in planning my days, keeping me organized and helping me to visualize my goals. I had loved the design then and I'm loving the dedication and effort they've been putting into it each year. It was also the first planner to ever offer lots and lots of discount coupons from partnered merchants. In short, it's a planner too good to pass up. Now, I'm more than happy to get my hands on the 2015 BDJ Power Planner that is much improved and more geared to productivity than ever.
If you think that the tale of Peter Pan had been told over so many times, here’s an origin story that sheds new light into the tale. After having watched the trailer, I am pretty sure that I am going to like this film. From the glimpses of key scenes I’ve seen, I love the creative way they’ve done the re-telling. It also features big stars like Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, Rooney Mara and Garrett Hedlund.
Just take a look at Hugh Jackman below, he’s almost unrecognizable! It’s thrilling to have him play a very different role and a villain at that. I can’t wait to see his interpretation of the most infamous pirate of all.
Wake up the inner geek in you this morning as I bring you the 88-second teaser trailer for the upcoming and much awaited Star Wars film that’s currently being directed by J.J.
