video: Dude, where’s my Jakkayarn?

Tue 24, November 2009

I have managed to cut down the material from the bike ride Nicholas and I did from Bangkok to Singapore.

When I can get to some great bandwidth I’ll upload the HD version.

On July 12th 2009 Nicholas Ward and Adam Teale left Bangkok Thailand and rode their bicycles south through Thailand and Malaysia, and after 2100km and nearly a month of riding, made it to Singapore

Here it is via Vimeo:

Sunshine – sci fi movie

Fri 6, April 2007

A little while back i posted (i think) about a movie by director Danny Boyle called “Sunshine”. It looked to be a promising sci-fi free of the usual hollyood shite.

And…

It is!!!!!!

Last night I went and saw it with Derek and Bessie down in Causeway Bay.
The movie is stunning to look at. The size of the sun and its immense brightness and heat come across very clearly.
I thought the concepts were thought out enough to be believable.
Storywise – well teh guys are off to save the world by creating a star within the sun to reignite it. That’s a big one but I believed it.
And, the usual hollywood shite has some romantic fucking scene in some part of the space station. Well folks this is free of that too! Although Rose Byrne (who is awesome) seems to have some feelings for the main character played by Cillian Murphy (28days later etc..).

And…

It ain’t your typical hollywood ending!
