A Waterfall of Love---Happy Valentine's Day!





Valentine’s Day encompasses romance for all ages. People go out of their way to show their affection for the one they love with flowers, candy, perhaps a special meal. Just how did this day come to be?


Valentine’s Day can be traced back to the third century, when Emperor Claudius III of Rom decided young men made better soldiers than those with wives and families to care for. Valentine, a young man who preached the word, felt this was injustice at its worst. He defied the emperor and secretly performed marriages for young lovers in secret. Once his actions were discovered, the emperor ordered he be put to death.
Today, we honor his memory by celebrating romance with the one we love. To honor St. Valentine, Solstice Publishing presents Cupid’s Arrow Vol. 2, a collection of tales of love.




An essence of bliss makes everything delicious.


Her last word before kissing him was, “Hush.”

The Limehouse Golem- My take on the movie with spoilers!

If like me, you’ve read hundreds of mysteries and enthused about Sherlock Holmes tales, THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM is actually pretty predictable.
Set in the Victorian Era, it promises to instill dear in you. Before Jack the Ripper, there was Golem- such is the tagline and you do want it to be the kind of movie that keeps you guessing until the very end as to the true identity of the killer. Unlike the Jack the Ripper legend, Golem is easily recognizable in the very first instance the character is introduced.
The hunger in the eyes, the madness to carve a name on stone, not ice- all of it points towards their murderous intentions.
The story is essentially about Elizabeth Cree and how she leaves behind a tragic, impoverished life to become someone. She finds her secret talents in a music hall where plays are held, led by Dan Leno, an actor who doesn’t mind cross-dressing. He runs the hall with the help of Elizabeth’s “uncle” who has a twisted secret of his own.
When Elizabeth’s husband is fo…

Marrowbone-- my take on the movie with spoilers!

Marrowbone is one of those movies that delivers shocks and surprises. From the outside, it looks like a period drama. But that’s only the first scene.
We are introduced to the Marrowbones- a family consisting of a mother and four children (three boys and a girl). They move into a new house, actually a manor, and as they enter, the mother tells them one simple thing- the minute they cross the threshold, they leave the past behind.
Immediately we are made curious as to what this seemingly ordinary family must have gone through. What exactly was the mother alluding to? Never a dull moment, the scene shifts to the introduction of Allie, a very important character in the movie as we find out later. Afterward, we are shown the mother to be on her deathbed, leaving her children with only a letter detailing the roles they must undertake.
Jack, the eldest, makes a pact with his siblings that nothing will ever separate them. In the next scene, the mother is buried. Jane is in the mother’s room…

Still/Born-- My take on the movie with spoilers!

I have often wondered why is it that in a horror movie, building family drama is given more importance over providing adequate scares.
While watching Still/Born, it finally hit me from the very first scene.
It's because real life is far scarier than any ghost or demon.
You could do everything right- plan everything ahead, push yourself out of bed every morning and strive to work and persist, nevertheless, you would still end up losing if it is written in your destiny.
A battle with destiny can never be won.
It is this bleak message that I felt was the key element of this movie.
A mother was supposed to give birth to twin boys. A joyous occasion, right? But nope, one of them. Is stillborn.
She goes into depression but still pushes herself to stay happy for the sake of her living son and husband. She even takes her medications and goes to therapy. Does that work for her? Nope.
She does whatever it takes to save her son, goes crazy in the process, is ready to fight a demonic figure. Does she…
