Sam’s Blog – The Raid 2: Berendal

Posted in Sam's Blog by - Apr 11, 2014

For those who saw The Raid 1, you may be pleased to know that our protagonist, Rama, is back in all his glory. You may also be pleased to know that director Gareth Evans’ follow-up film has a little more plot (convoluted though it may be), without skimping on the action.

Rama (Iko Uwais) returns from the raid in the film’s predecessor, only to find that he has been assigned to another mission: to go undercover and expose the corrupt cops who are being paid off by a nearby gang. He does this by being thrown in jail for two years …

Sam’s Blog – Le Week-End

Posted in Sam's Blog by - Apr 11, 2014

“What a great thing… to be so attuned to your own unhappiness.” This quote, spoken by a man interested in an unhappily married woman, is the hinge of this film’s plot… because the first step of solving a problem is recognizing that it exists. Perhaps this is exactly what Birmingham couple Nick and Meg need as they return to Paris to recapture the feeling of their honeymoon 30 years prior. Roger Michel (Notting Hill, Morning Glory) helms a delightful yet tumultuous picture of a weekend of petty bickering, brutal honesty, and romantic cynicism through these two characters, who force themselves …

Sam’s Blog – Particle Fever

Posted in Sam's Blog by - Apr 01, 2014

We discovered matter. We discovered what that matter was made up of. But we still have that age old question: what created the matter in the first place? Physicists of all cultures have been working for years on trying to decipher this mystery of the universe, and their work has accumulated to create the Large Hadron Collider, a miles-long particle accelerator which essentially recreates the events of the Big Bang in a controlled environment.

When initiated, the LHC sends two beams of protons in opposite directions and moves their paths to collide. In 2012, physicists tested the Hadron Collider for the …
