Thoughts on technology, movies, and everything else
I am a huge movies fan. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) I don’t get much free time to enjoy watching movies. But when I do, I try to share my thoughts about the movies that I’ve seen. Movie reviews, celebrity news, trailers of upcoming flicks, etc – are all in this category.
This is one of the best scenes in the whole movies history. And that’s because of the brilliant performance by Ronald Lee Ermey. Unfortunately, Ronald Lee Ermey has passed away on April 15, 2018, at the age of 74. He played a few more roles in other movies, but I think this is by far his best contribution to the cinema. Probably, because he was a drill instructor in the United States Marine Corps in real life.
For those of you with too much time on your hands, here is a nice collection of free documentaries available on YouTube. Let me know in the comments what’s your top 5. You don’t have to stick to this list, by the way.
These are super exciting news – Netflix now available worldwide, Cyprus too! For those who don’t know this service, Netflix is basically the Google of the TV series and movies. Until recently it was only available in US, UK, and very few other locations, but now they’ve expanded to 130 countries more.
For 8 EUR a month you get an unlimited access to all their movies and TV shows. You can stream content to your TV, laptop, tablet, or phone, and for a couple of extra euros you can even watch stuff on more than one screen simultaneously!
According to Wikipedia, Internet Movie Database, or IMDb, as we know it, has turned 25 years old (launched on October 17, 1990). What an achievement! There aren’t that many websites around that are that old and still that useful.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish a very Happy Birthday to everyone who was involved with the site during all this years. Thank you!
I hope one day we’ll overcome all those copyright restrictions and it’ll be possible to watch movies and TV series directly on the site, much like the trailers are now.
