Today IMDb Top 250 project will be completed :) First project finale :)

I am watching the last film from the list: Seven Samurai by Kurosawa. I left one of the best ones to the end as a nice closure 🙂

Kurosawa and Miyazaki are by far my top heroes among all other great directors. Their talent in storytelling surpassed my expectations in many ways.

Movies, like books, are about storytelling. They use less words so it is not very easy when compared to books. Any subject, if told really good, can become a masterpiece.

That’s what I learned the best from the bests among IMDb Top 250. I will definitely use this in my future short films for my Filmmaking project.

Updates on reading 100 books project…

I haven’t written much about the updates on my book project. Now, it is the time 🙂

Within the past 20 days, since I started this blog, I’ve read these books:

Short Haired Women by Patrice Leconte 

This is the first book of the author, who is more known as a film director. It is not found very easily. I came across to this underrated piece in a supermarket (!) by chance. It is not even on Amazon.com…

Very easy to read, diary style of a young man seeking the love of his life.

I loved the obsession of the character about short haired women and why he finds them so attractive. Since I have short hair, it was a fun to read 🙂

The Lazy Intellectual: Maximum Knowledge, Minimal Effort by Richard & James Wallace 

Helpful quick facts about topics we come across in daily conversations. Not a good tool for learning deeply about something. However, it may open new horizons to new topics to investigate more. A fun-quick read.

A Book for People Who Want to Become Stinking Rich but Aren’t Quite Sure How by Benrik Ltd.

Like the title, it was so much fun to read that one. Some ideas are quite tempting too 🙂 I strongly recommend this one for fun and creative thinking.

The Only Child: How to Survive Being One by PitkeathleyEmerson 

Just started reading today. As an only child, it is a tempting read at it is based on interviews with people grew up as an only-child.

I will be reading the 10 book – box set of Dear Dumb Diary by Jim Benton this month. I love children’s books but this box set is amazing. Any adult can laugh at every page. Brilliant depiction of adults from the eyes of an 11-year-old.

That is it for this month 🙂

Love,

Alex
