Review on Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
Is a fictional novel that was a series television in the first place.
Well the author said in the prologue that he added all the details he wasn’t able to put them on the series television, which I guess make the book full of details (well, I can’t really tell because I didn’t watch the series, I’m judging basing on the author words.) the novel itself wasn’t that bad, maybe it’s too long with a lot of irrelevant details and characters.

The idea seems a classical fiction of a city under the city, it wasn’t too innovative, and the purpose of the story itself wasn’t so clear.

But in the other hand with a little thinking, we can tell that maybe the author want to tell us about the choices someone makes in his life.
From the chapter one when richard choose to help door even when the cost was his own life , sometimes the choice is hard between confort or meaningful life, maybe the life of Richard mayhew in London above was safe but it was meaningless. this is why in the end of the story he choose to return to the undercity, even if it’s much more dangerous but it has a meaning and a purpose for him.

Personally the part the I liked the most is Richard passing the ordeal, a reader can imagine that the ordeal will be facing some beast or monster, but it was nothing of that it was simply facing himself, maybe the most difficult ordeal for us as human is facing ourselves, our thoughts and memories.
Maybe the most scary thing is to submerge in the void, listening to ourselves.

I think that the whole story is about  people who look for meaning , safety, or simply they were looking for who they really are. or at least this is how I see it.

Enjoy the novel guys.

Short review about the film “Searching”

searching

searching is a film produced on 2018, I just watched it lately.
the film spoke about a father who missed his 16 years old daughter and describe his journey on looking for her.
Most of the film was Set almost entirely on smartphones and computer screens, wich I liked.
maybe the scenario of the film is usual one, of a father investigating the mistery missing of his daughter but in the road to find her, the producer show us to which point our lives became entierlly attached to smart phones, computer, internet , social medias and technology, however this connection may not be real, we think that we are connected that we talk, that we have friends , but in the matter of fact we are not.
when the father has contacted all the friends on the FB and instagram of his daughter and they were over 180 persons, he couldn’t find anyone who really know her.
the father himself, thought that he knows his daughter and that he is connected to her, but at somepoint in between he lost that connection without even seen it, he lost it because he didn’t talk to what matter to his daughter, he did not make the right effort to get closer to her.
tha was the idea that I liked the most about the film.
I hope that you enjoy the film guys.

A personal review of the film the Quiet place

A Quiet Place is a 2018 American science-fiction horror film directed by John Krasinski, who stars with Emily Blunt, his real-life wife. The film is produced by Michael Bay’s company, Platinum Dunes [Wikipedia] it is In a post-apocalyptic world, a family is forced to live in silence while hiding from monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing.
I had the chance to see this film last week, it was so different then what I had expected.
First at all before seeing the trailer, I was expecting a romantic quiet film, then after the trailer I understood that it a horror movie.
That was ok , the begining of the film was exciting, it makes you posing a lot of questions.
Kind of why everything is quiet, why the family have to stay silent? then some other kind of questions rise in the mind kind of what are those monsters, how they get there, why they did existed in the first place?
All those questions, and the time is passing, the events in the film progress, and the most important thing, there is no words in th film, every second pass and I wait for the actors to speak but they did not.
The producer was clever enough to make he watcher understand what’s happening without words, the only spoken sentence was when the mother makes her husband promise her to protect the children.The film was speechless, but I can’t say quietly.The funny part was when the film’s end and I still waiting for an explanation, and for the character to speak.
I actually wasn’t able to believe that it was the end, just like that without answers to my questions, I was surprised by a way that I made a long historical laugh, I’m not the kind of person who accept being left without explanation, without knowing the concrete meaning of thing. So when the film’s end, I left with even more questions bigger than those of the beginning of the film.I was trying to get at least a conclusion, at least the purpose of the film, so I thought that maybe the writer of the film wants us to know that sometimes to survive you have to stay calm enough, no matter how big is your pain, your emotions or whatever it is you have to hide it and get over it.Maybe he wants to say, that actions matter more than words.You can express love, care and attention by so many different ways, the most important is to show it, but if that was really the idea, I think that I don’t share it totally, yes, it’s important to act, but to express and share positive feelings are important too, the proof that the daughter in the film did not understand and the love of her father to only when he told her. She was thinking that he does what he is doing only buy because it is his duty.One other thought nit relevant to the silence, is what is the point of having children if we can’t protect them? Most of people in the world, doing the same thing bringing more children to a miserable world where they can’t protect their children, I was wondering why? maybe this uncertainty is necessary for evolution, who can tell? it’s true that mother nature has weird ways.Anyways the film in general was good enough, and intriguing.It makes you think, it was a new kind for me, new experience, I’m not used to this kind of presentation.And I can advise people to see it.

 

Relashionships, Moon and Earth

Nature is nature either you talk about human relationships or celestial bodies, or the universe itself. I liked the comparison made in these videos (see the link below).
Some people may need some space like the moon who also needs its own space apparently. Since it’s getting away from us every year by  almost 3 cm.
The relation between earth and moon is changing, and it seems that it makes our days long and it may lead to the breakup. But none the less, it’s not true, the moon is not leaving us.
Everything is relative and all things changes.

The most important things when that change happens it should not affect the core of the relationship, in our case even if the moon is evolving differently and it’s getting a little far from us every year, but the relation itself is still the same, and the whole system is compensating the lost energy to conserve its angular momentum. we started together we will finish together.
I just hope that it would be the same with people we love, even if they get away a little but they would not leave us.
We just need to adapt to the new changes, to find a way to compensate, to find a way to conserve the balance.

Local elections

Today it’s the municipal election day, and it’s supposed to be the first free and honest municipal-election in the history of my country.
And despite of all of that, I won’t go to vote, I know that I’m supposed to stand for that right, that people and especially women, had fought for it, it’s supposed that I won’t drop my chance for changing, but like almost all Tunisians I feel disappointed.
I mean after the revolution of 2011, we hoped really for the best, we have tried to change things, to make our country a better place. but we were deceived by politicians. Life here is getting harder and harder.
I have friends from civil society, who is trying to convince us that if we don’t vote, then we cannot control or charges the people who will get the authority. Ad that even if, election is not the best way to improve the situation, but it’s all we get for now.
But for me, I say, I voted or not, we will not be able to control them anyway, we will not be able to questioning their decisions. Beside it’s already known who will win, we have two big political parties in the country one of them is already full of splits and problems and the other one is controlling the whole country since it won in the election of 2011, so basically the Islamist will win the municipal election too.
Democracy should be built, on principals, on mentality, it should be seen in the people actings and everyday life, otherwise it will be only theoretical, and kind of just a show.

We should work on the next generation, to teach them the principals of democracy, the principals of managing their public life. Well, I know that some people will tell me that we should deal with what we have now, and work for the future simultaneously.
Well, that could be true, but anyway I decided not to go.

Free-will VS Determinism

FREE-WILL VS DETERMINISM

There are different ways to look at the world :
*Either you consider that everything is determined, everything happens for a reason and no matter what you do, what it’s not meant to be, will not be.
*Or you consider that life is about decisions, and choices: there is no such thing as right or wrong decision, you make a decision basing on available information in an instant of time T, and basing on your state of mind and consciousness, and after that you have to take responsibility for what come from that.
*Or you say I make choices, according to the actual data, but I can’t control the results because it’s impossible to me to contrôl all the parameters of the equation, and you choose either to give a meaning to that result or you consider that it comes accidentally.
*Otherwise you can consider that nothing of the above is true and nothing happens for a reason, and things come all over randomly and not necessarily that it make sense at all. you are not the center of the universe, so maybe it’s not even about you in the first place.
So what would you pick up?

Deception

There is two kinds of deception, this when I trick you and the other one when you do trick yourself. I mean yeah we all do it , all the time…
You see our minds deceive us all the day, they bend reality to make it be, whatever we want it to be , what ever we need it to be, or simply to make it all make sense, even when it doesn’t

Lost in Space -review

Lost in space

Lost in space is an American science fiction series diffuse on Netflix, well the series is newly produced and freshly broadcasted on 13 April 2018.
It’s a nice series despite that the story is quite classic. I mean: facing difficulties, landing on a habitable planet, meeting extraterrestrial life, than, extraterrestrial intelligence, and honestly, I don’t know why almost all science fiction series and films, which talk about space, have to put a black hole somewhere in the story. And with all of that they added to the mixture, some spiteful Dr Smith, as usual, it has to be that rancorous person-who was in reality a victim of a bad past, so he finds himself acting like an asshole, as a reaction to that past- .
Anyway, all the elements of a classic science-fiction party was there, like if this is the top of the human imagination, we cannot imagine any other element despite science is really full of new fact and theories. However, this combination of classical element come into a new suit, fancy and elegant, the suspension was at the appointment, the expression of human feelings like fear, confusion, hesitation, courage, was great, well played by the actors.
The philosophy of guilt, narcissism, protection, self identification, sacrifices, and the morality of a super-intelligence, are put on the table, but you can’t see them only if you try to look a little deeper than just the events presented in each episode.

Generally, I liked watching the serie I hope that the next season come out fast and may it be more creative, joyable and full of suspense.
