Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

I ended up doing a double bill of watching Underworld: Blood Wars and this back-to-back, and I felt that Resident Evil was the funner movie of the two to watch. I’m not a huge fan of the series, but I’ve seen them all, and so I figured I’d see how they “end” it. It had some pretty fun/ridiculous action sequences, although the quick cuts (editing) throughout did get distracting at times. It’s not a great movie, but I had a pretty good time watching it.

Blue Velvet

You know when you remember really liking a movie, but then 20 years or so pass, and you wonder if you’ll still like it? I’ve always had fond memories of Blue Velvet, and I’m a fan of David Lynch’s work in general — and Twin Peaks is my favorite TV series of all time. So while I’m in the process of re-watching Twin Peaks for the 6th time I think, how was Blue Velvet? (I watched it because it came out in 1986.) I thought it was even better than I remembered. I was completely entranced by the stor...

The fallibility of biometrics collected by the Aadhaar programme

by Vishwanath L The opposition to Aadhaar mostly centres on the issues of surveillance and privacy. While these are very important issues, the lofty platform on which Aadhaar stands is supported on the myth that biometric-based identity is infallible, robust and safe. None of this is true, which therefore brings into question the very utility of Aadhaar, as also the unforeseen complications it may cause.

Joan of Arc hearing the voices that lead her to don armor and lead men into battle. Next I wandered into the Napoleon III apartments. It was very luxurious. This light fixture was at the top of some stairs. There was gilding on just about every ceiling and many chandeliers. More gilding, lots of...
