Big Fish

A film to re-view once and another time. A film to remember that the most important part of our lifes are our illusions, a film to return as to our childhood...A film to remember that a father is ever a Big Fish.

Fucking my Neighbors

More than two years without playing my electric guitar at all. But since 3 days, my neighbors are crazy about my fucking guitar bad-playing XD.

Stealth

Directed by Rob Cohen, this is a very not pretentious but funny film. Action, flying at high risk, a blondie beautiful girl to be rescued and an Artificial Neural Network out of control...all what a ML man can wish!
