On This Path

on this path where steps are hesitate to walk where the heart leaves a trail where tears water it and prayers scatter like dandelion seeds heavy before the light —- my brother is at his home my family is with him my spirit too.                           [Author: French la Vie]

The Hunt for Red October

Even though I love this movie, I waited quite a while to watch it during this marathon because I had already revisited it a few years ago while doing a rewatch of all the Jack Ryan films (ahead of the start of the Jack Ryan TV series). But despite it still being relatively fresh in my mind, I still had a blast watching it, and still felt the tenseness whenever you should feel it. This is just such a great film, and definitely one of my favorites of 1990. I also wish John McTiernan had dire...

Presumed Innocent

I enjoyed watching this. It starts off slow, and at first I wasn’t really into Ford’s glum performance, but the story does get quite good, and luckily I had forgotten how it ends, so I didn’t know what to expect — really didn’t see that ending coming, even though I definitely watched this back in the day. This also made me think that I used to really like courtroom dramas (sure, lots of them of the John Grisham variety), and it feels like I haven’t watched a new one (and I’m specifically r...

Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams

I do remember watching this back in the day and not really enjoying it. I didn’t really remember any aspect of the film, just that it wasn’t for me, and that made me pretty excited to revisit it at this point in my life to see how I would feel this time. Since it’s an anthology — made up of a series of “dreamy” sequences — it’s maybe not too surprising that I’m going to say that there were some segments that I really, really liked (the first two especially, as well as the windmill village ...

A Picture of Health: Why we need a unified approach to COVID-safe air travel

Just as the race to invent a vaccine dominated headlines months ago, the topic du jour at the center of getting back to life's great pleasures -including cross-border travel- is the health passport. Like most things these days, the race is on to eliminate paper and all of the associated problems and inconveniences. The concept of a health or immunity passport is a digital pass that enables a person's test results or vaccination status to be registered and proved on our phone (or watch).

Top 6 drink trends in 2021

After a year marred by a global public health crisis, 2020 has left many thirsty for in-person social gatherings with friends and family. Morning catch-ups at the coffee corner, afterwork happy hour at the favorite waterhole or weekend drinks in town have mostly been replaced (for now) with coffees-to-go, virtual apéros, or alfresco drinking in winter like in summer. Consumers have become today their own baristas and bartenders, imbibing alone at home or at a distance outside.

What vaccines mean for the return of travel

AT THE END of December 2020, hope returned to the world, including hope for restarting travel, as countries began approving the Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines. Sometime in 2021, when enough people are vaccinated against—and immune from—COVID-19, this could mean a return to globetrotting (or at least less-risky domestic vacations).
