The Contextual Meaning of a Movie: It Isn’t The Same To All

I’ve been thinking a lot about context lately.  More specifically, the meaning that things have within a certain context. For example, a knife in itself isn’t a bad thing.  But, say, in the hands of a baby or a killer, well…  Enough said. I wish the question of context was as easy when it came… Read More The Contextual Meaning of a Movie: It Isn’t The Same To All

The M0vie Blog’s Review of “The X-Files: I Want to Believe”

The M0vie Blog has probably a lot on their plate and just like other bloggers **coughsmecoughs*, hasn’t yet had the time to review the new season of The X-Files.  But thankfully there is still a review for, oh, every single other episode of the show AND both movies, so I think I’ll be OK for… Read More The M0vie Blog’s Review of “The X-Files: I Want to Believe”

Music DVD Review: Motown – The DVD

Fifty-one years ago, Berry Gordy founded Motown, and music has never quite been the same – in an excellent kind of way, of course. From Marvin Gaye to Stevie Wonder and The Jackson Five, to Smokey Robinson and The Temptations, Motown has brought us some memorable artists. And with the magic of television, Motown was… Read More Music DVD Review: Motown – The DVD

It’s wedding season!  We have been lucky enough to be invited to a few again this year for which I am incredibly grateful.  I love weddings!  They mark the beginning of a marriage, of another family being created and, hopefully, contributing to making the community stronger than without it. It comes as no surprise then… Read More Sahar’s Blog Presents: Maeve’s Monthly Movie Review

Respecting Human Dignity While Working to Eliminate Rape

“Till It Happens To You” is Lady Gaga’s powerful new song which she co-wrote for use in the documentary on campus rape in the United States called “The Hunting Ground.” The numbers make it clear that drastic action is needed to raise the kind of men who would never degrade themselves to subjecting someone to… Read More Respecting Human Dignity While Working to Eliminate Rape

There are a lot of movies I haven’t seen (and some I never plan to see) about which I have read A LOT about.  Slumdog Milionaire is one of them.  If you are a long-time Sahar’s Blog reader, you are probably not surprised since there was a lot of debate going around the central concepts… Read More Sahar’s Blog Presents: Maeve’s Monthly Movie Review

Home Alone is just one of those movies that most, if not all North Americans at least know of.  I myself have watched it numerous times with my family–it has become, for a while, a tradition of sorts to watch it at some point during wintertime.  I never thought about it as a particularly profound… Read More Sahar’s Blog Presents: Maeve’s Monthly Movie Review

When I saw that Maeve had a movie review of Girl, Interrupted on her blog, I couldn’t resist picking it as a feature of this year’s first edition of Maeve’s Monthly Movie Review.  I watched this movie a couple of times over the years and was always left with so many questions about the meaning… Read More Sahar’s Reviews Presents: Maeve’s Monthly Movie Review

Even if we know that the life that awaits a loved one when they pass from this plane of existence is a good one, death still remains difficult for the ones that are left behind. This seems to be the most difficult for a spouse who has lost their significant other. The premise behind the… Read More Sahar’s Reviews Presents: Maeve’s Monthly Movie Review

Alarms sound almost daily now about what we are doing to the planet. We are told that we are destroying the fabric our societies are built in, that our economic system will collapse, that our environment will not be able to survive the abuse we are heaping on it. The movie WALL-E has always felt… Read More Sahar’s Reviews Presents: Maeve’s Monthly Movie Review
