It’s been almost a decade since I first heard of Buster Keaton. When everyone was talking about Charlie Chaplin, I was looking for other comedians who were around at the time, and there he was: Buster Keaton. However, The General is the first movie I’ve seen by Mr. Keaton since discovering him, and I’ve tried watching some of his short films but was not patient enough to watch that movie back then. When I first subscribed to Mubi, I came across this movie and was unprepared to witness one of the best action movies I’d ever seen.
Wakanda Forever works better than one expects it to and most importantly the gap Chadwick Boseman left is very evident. While watching […]

In a time and age where we have so many gurus for so many things, often than not the things those Gurus prescribe might not make much practical sense but few do take time and effort to acknowledge their past mistakes, learn from them and share them to the world not to commit the same mistakes they did. One such person is Ankur Warikoo, a successful Entrepreneur and Content Creator who has made so much impact on many people in their 20s and 30’s, especially his videos on Personal Finance have opened my eyes to a greater extent. When I got to know that his book is going to be out, I was excited to read it and as usual, I Pre-ordered and put it on my shelf for months, only for me to pick it up so late.
The Game with no Name is the Second book in the Jitters Series by L.G. Cunningham. This book isn’t the follow-up to the first one but both these books share a common theme “Children’s Horror” more along the lines of Goosebumps if I must add (Goosebumps is the only Horror Series I read as a child, not the entire collection but a couple of them) and to safely say the books are really engaging even for an adult like me.
Goosebumps is one of the earliest Horror books I read as a Kid. Even though my English comprehension was poor back then, I somehow managed to grasp what the story was and how I ended up in many sleepless nights—reading this novel kind of reminded me of those early days. I’m pretty sure the intended audiences for this book will feel scary.
Children’s books are fascinating and the respect I have for the authors who write them is humongous. The Authors should become children, go into their world, and speak their language, it is one of the toughest tasks to Write for Children. Along those lines, I started reading Children’s literature recently to identify books that I can read for my 3 years old or entice him to get into reading.
Batman: Bad Blood is the sixth installment in the DC Animated Movie Universe which follows after the Flashpoint Paradox created and restored by The Flash. This movie deals with a particular subject “What if Batman disappeared?” and what will happen to Gotham and people in the city, especially thugs of the city. On the other hand, people in the Bat-Family investigate what happened to Batman and also try and stop anything from happening in Gotham city.
Fantasy Novels have their own way of indulging us in their worlds but it lies in the hands of the Authors who write them. Often, the authors struggle with World-building, either they are too descriptive or too vague for the readers to understand where the story is going and what to expect out of the novel. (This is from my limited reading of Fantasy novels both good and bad). Realm of Kings: Flaming Deception by Dustin Fisher is the first in the series of books and I’m thankful to Booktasters for providing me an opportunity to read this Indie book.
