Region 2 Cinema: The Window (1949)

Turner Classic Movies has this film scheduled for a 3:45pm showing today, so I thought it would be fortuitous if I made it the subject of this week’s Region 2 Cinema post. If you’re planning on watching it on TCM, I’ll forewarn you that there may be a spoiler or two.

Kenya finally feels Global Credit Crunch

Can you believe that the contraction of the long-term credit is already in the dictionary? Often defined as "a serious lack of money or credit," to deceive those that are looking to Kenyans, Africans have not experienced so-called crisis of the years, even decades. So the West is to take his medicine, finally, and over time. The beginning of this was found on 9 August 2007. The French investment bank BNP Paribas caused tremors throughout the world causing a sharp rise in borrowing costs. [more...]

The Gold Coast’s Economical Holiday Options

As everybody knows at this point, cash is becoming increasingly difficult to save up and set aside for things other than basic living necessities.

Affordable Holidays: How To Do It Cheap On The Gold Coast

You are probably aware by now that we are entering a period where cash is a going to be a little bit tighter for all of us.

Affordable Holidays: How To Do It Cheap On The Gold Coast

As the current crisis deepens, more and more people find themselves strapped for cash. With gas and oil costing what they do, it is much more expensive to be a car owner these days and thanks to rising inflation it is necessary to spend a good deal more on the basic items needed for day to day living.

[DVD REVIEW] Child's Play

Some horror films have the bad luck of being stuck using a trick that only affects a select group within a society by playing on their specific phobias. Granted, the horror genre as a whole has a knack for that, but there are some concepts that are funny no matter the situation. For example, a man in a mask with a huge sharp knife lunging from the shadows = scary. It plays to the fear of, well, just not wanting to die. That seems normal enough. [more...]
