  1. Apocalypse Now is a good one, alright. Given is legendarily tumultuous production cycle, it’s kind of a miracle what we got was halfway comprehensible let alone one of the greatest films of all time. It’s kind of like throwing a bunch of popsicle sticks and glue together and somehow getting a perfect model ship.

    1. I’ve looked up the issues it had with production after watching the movie and was so impressed by what it turned out to be. I don’t know how it’s even possible. Love your imagery there. They recently released an IMAX full theatrical movie release and can’t imagine how cool it must’ve been. Movies like that are so rare today.

  2. Glad you had such a productive month! I continue to be amazed at how you balance your job and real life and education with reading and with blogging. If you don’t mind me asking, how many hours of sleep do you need?

  3. Apocalypse Now is great indeed. There will be a new sci-fi movie in cinemas soon, with Pitt, that apparently is Apocalypse Now in space, I think I’ll go & check if the reviewers are right 🙂

  4. Yay for Apocalypse Now! One of my favorite movies (…and the cat is out of the bag, that was probably a weird thing to say :P) Nevertheless, I admire this movie for its realistic and yet incredibly poetic way it tackles war as both profoundly traumatizing and life-changing experience and at the same time, something so alluring and addictive. Plus, Conrad’s Heart of Darkness forms its foundation, and that’s one of my favorite books as well 😀

    1. It’s so rare to hear about your faves! I’m glad to find out this was one of them. 😛 Then again… I do remember your thesis subject and all, and it all makes a lot of sense hahaha I got a copy of Heart of Darkness and can’t wait to check it out too! Will probably try and sneak it into a priority read for 2020 though. The end of 2019 is sooo packed with books I need to read hahah

      1. Believe me, I’m not sure you would like to hear that! Mostly people get this glossy, faraway look in their eyes or excuse themselves politely 😉 I’m as fervently enthusiastic in talking about my favourites as I am in thrashing the ones I don’t like 😀 Apropos of that, you may check out my most recent review to get a taste 😉
