This week, i received a free copy of Lee Strobel's latest Case for the Real Jesus, watched Ghost Rider, Facing the Giants, Blood Diamond, and Little Miss Sunshine, arranged an Agora Singapore's session for next week, and renewed my working permit.
The Case For The Real Jesus is a good book. It's a completely updated version of the The Case For Christ. An interesting read that one cannot not learn anything new from each page.
Watching the Ghost Rider is time wasting. It's lousy. The effects are not so great, the story is not grand and very fragmented, each scene seems to not link to the next. The dialogue can be done better.
Facing the Giants is the lateast Christian movie brought in by Integrity. One of the finest i ever watched.
Blood Diamond is a movie that one should keep. It's about the story of conflict diamonds. All married/not-married/going-to-be couples should watch it.
Little Miss Sunshine is a very well done comedy. It's about a family with different individuals.
Work Permit renewal....well....i only got to know about it two days ago when Rain (my colleague) reminded the company. I rushed to get a HIV test (the 4th time this year) on Thursday, got the report on Friday, renew my permit this morning.
Isn't life fragmented? There doesn't seem to have any 'grand' narrative going on. Every events seem to have their own causes and effects. Perhaps that's the reason why i love and enjoy movies so much. Movies come with grand narrative, usually.
