While I was up in Jersey, I watched a number of movies. Far from Heaven is a lacklustre film which did not provide much entertainment or food for thought. Y tu mamá también (And Your Mother Too) is a Mexican film in Spanish. It is a comedy of the American Pie genre, except it has… Continue reading Movies
If you are wondering why the posting recently has been sparse. Wonder no more. Spring semester winds up May 2. My teaching assistantship is more demanding work during the last month of the semester as the project is assigned and then graded in multiple steps. We usually break up the project into multiple steps so… Continue reading Miscellaneous

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
We watched Harry Potter over the weekend. It’s a good movie, but I am not the target audience. Even though it runs to 2 hours and 40 minutes, it doesn’t feel overly long. This one also has more plot twists than the first Harry Potter movie. However, we liked the first one better.
Die Another Day
We saw the latest Bond movie, Die Another Day, yesterday. Bond is always fun to watch. The plot is also crazy and impossible. There are lots of explosions and action. The villains are always personal enemies of Bond. And then are the women. This latest movie is definitely the best of the Pierce Brosnan Bond… Continue reading Die Another Day
