    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 22/11/2013

    » Searching for memories is hard when the past brings back nothing much but pain. Iv Charbonneau-Ching knows the feeling well.

    Raising the stakes

    Life, Published on 22/11/2013

    » The first instalment introduced the audience to The Hunger Games, with its absurd and brutal rules a la Battle Royale, and this sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, reintroduces us to the same game, with repetitions of how the government relies on the hopes and fears of its cowering citizens to remain in power, on its strategic planning of moves and countermoves within the Games and in real Panem life. But as in any sequel, the stakes have been raised. This instalment is deeper and darker, with the first act reminiscent of a cross between Orwell's 1984 and Mel Stuart's Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory. The towns are grey, the people hungry and afraid. The government sees everything. And in the Capital, people swallow a drink to make themselves throw up so they can keep indulging in more macaroons.

    Cab connector

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 22/11/2013

He talks to us about how the app benefits both passengers and drivers (but most importantly, saves us all from face-to-face taxi rejection).
