Movie: Juno

I watched this movie on a boring Sunday night.

In spite of the movie being, essentially, a talkie with little to no action scenes, it managed to hold my attention down to the very end. For some reason, I can't quite put my finger on the reason it did so. I just know that I loved every minute of it.

The music in this movie was like a living thing, interwoven amid the many events going on in Juno's life. Like a brilliant tapestry, the movie unfolded with a flourish. For me, no single thing stood out but the whole ended up being greater than the sum of its parts.

An altogether delightful and soul-stirring journey, this movie takes you on a ride that seemingly never ends. Its message to me?

Love's journey cares not for age or experience, but passion and commitment.

Dare: Office Meeting Antics

Some things you wish you could say in a serious office meeting. See if you can catch the references. :D

  • "This project is going to require a lot of power. By the power... of Greyskull!"
  • "Let me consult with my team. Thunder... Thunder... Thundercats! Ho!!!"
  • "Fast turnaround time is paramount, I think. Speed... of the puma!"
  • "Let me think on this point. Whispered secrets of a shattered age, I summon you: renew this sage!"
  • "I'm not sure what you mean. Sword of Omens! Give me sight beyond sight!"
  • "Thank you for attending this meeting. Autobots, transform and roll out!"

Can you think of other lines you'd like to say in office meetings?
