Do you like scary movies? (see what I did there? No? Fail.)
If so, you could earn yourself $10 000, provided of course that you live in India. Check it:
Ram Gopal Varma‘s “Phoonk 2,” a sequel to his 2008 film of the same name, is about an evil spirit that traumatizes a family. “Anyone who says the movie cannot scare him is going to be put in a theater by himself,” Varma told reporters in Mumbai at an event to promote the movie.
Varma said the film fan who steps up to the challenge will be wired up to a heart monitoring machine as well as a camera that ensures they keep their eyes open during the whole movie.
Readings from the machines will be shown live on a screen outside the cinema, Varma said, and if the contestant succeeds, they will win 500,000 rupees (approximately $10,850).
Check it out: here’s the trailer for the new Robin Hood movie…
Looks like a win.
As to what it’s about… here’s the official blurb from the studio:
Robin Hood chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richard’s army against the French. Upon Richard’s death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marion, a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin preying on the indulgent upper class to correct injustices under the sheriff.
But then you already knew that, didn’t you? Let’s be honest – Robin Hood ain’t exactly the newest story out there, but always makes for an entertaining movie.
Just finished watching “Fools Gold” on M-Net, and man, do I wanna go diving now.
Coolest hobby ever, but living in good old Gauteng kinda restricts dive opportunities. Sure, we’ve got a couple of decent quarries nearby – namely Miracle Waters (where I in fact did most of my early dives) and Bass Lake, but in winter they’re kinda chillos. I know the die-hards dive there all through the year, but I personally feel that frostbite is overrated – I’m kinda partial to having 10 fingers and 10 toes.
Re: the movie – just read a rather nasty review of it, but hey, sometimes you just wanna relax with a fun entertainer flick, instead of an in-depth analysis on society. Lighten up folks. Have some chill time, get into a crazy story and watch Kate Hudson flit about in a bikini – nothing wrong there. Beautiful tropical islands, crystal clear water, luxury yachts (for when I win the EuroMillions lottery) – I can think of nothing better to look at on a cold winter evening. Not everything has to be serious and thought-provoking ALL the time. Personally, I enjoyed it.
Back to my whining about not getting to dive often enough – was actually offered the opportunity to go diving at Aliwal Shoal (one of the top 10 dive sites in the world by the way) this weekend, but gotta work. Work work work – it’s seriously starting to interfere with my me-time. Pah – salaries!
Time to make a plan – gonna invest in the world’s warmest wetsuit, and see if I can dive bomb Miracle Waters ASAP.
Later. I’ll be the shivering guy next to all the worried looking medics if anyone’s looking for me.
