Movie Thoughts: Saving Private Ryan
The clue is given at the beginning. We start with an unknown old man at a war memorial cemetery. He isn’t named. We don’t know where he is. At the end of the scene the old man stares into the screen the movie fades into June 1944. The beach is called Dog Green. Is this…

Storytelling: The old testament
Introduction The other day I happened to look at the College Tour.

In this particular episode the guest was John Cleese. During this interview someone…
Story-telling: The hobbit – The battle of the five armies.
Yesterday I saw the Hobbit – The Battle of the Five Armies, and wrote a short scathing critique of the movie on metacritic.
