Chapter 42

without comments

Elfira Elizabeth was excessively disappointed;

But it was her business to be satisfied — and certainly her temper to be happy;

and all was soon right again.

Just stop!

See that period?

It’s not an accessory.

Thoughts on Robin Hood

with 3 comments

Robin Hood is the first movie in 2010 that I watch in the cinema, an actual cinema if I may add. Every coin has two sides. Bali is a goddess island but it’s a no-decent-cinema island, too. So, Robin Hood. Let me explain.

First, there’s “war”.

War scenes are great for movies. Only in movies, I know. If only in reality there were no people harmed in the making of the war, it would be awesome.

Second, there’s “the weapon”.

I think bows and arrows are the most elegant weapon. I think archer is an adorable word.

Third, there’s “the adorable cast”.

To my surprise, Russel Crowe is adorable, too. Classic cartoon has successfully set my imagination of Robin Hood. Seeing a rather chubby but still adorable man playing Robin Hood is a mind changing experience! Good job, Mr. Crowe!

Four, there’s “the fantasy character”.

It feels good to see the fantasy characters brought to life. I always remember the physical appearance of Frater Tuck and Little John from my childhood’s Robin Hood cartoon. The casts fit the picture. Well, make-up and wardrobe help. An exception for Robin hood, see my third point above.

Five, there’s “no green hood”.

Yet. There’s no green hood yet. The story takes place before Robin Hood and the gang live in the forest as the outlaws. The movie ends with the “so the legend begins” written in a parchment.

Six, the least important point.

Even though it ends with “so the legend begins”. I hope that there’s no sequel. What’s wrong with the Hollywood these days? Too many sequels are not good for health, people! [just read it somewhere: there IS going to be a sequel. Hm.]


I should’ve been more careful in planning and executing a surprise. Mwahahaha.. But it’s fun! It really is!

The Poster Colour

without comments

It was red and it was white. People called it pink and it was left in the palette.

For a long time, it was dry, useless as the painter used it not.

One day few drops of water fall on it and soon the brush brings it to the paper.

The poster colour is water-soluble. And now it’s happy.

Spoiler Alert

You see, when someone’s bad habits are pointed out to you, it’s hard to ignore them. But if you love them enough, those bad habits are easy to forgive.

Anyway, congratulation! :P
