Bringing the TV Online with an Android Mini-PC

November 24, 2013 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: Movies, Tech, TV.

I had this idea for a while to connect the TV with internet and LAN. So that I don’t have to turn on  the computer every time I want to stream something. Also it will remove the need to connect wires between computers and TV when I want to watch something on a larger screen. • Read More »

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted – A Mini Review

July 31, 2012 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: Movies, Sri Lanka.

I watched Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted couple of weeks back at Liberty Cinema at Kollpity. Even-though the story was bit predictable and common it was still enjoyable. For me Madagascar was never about a story but if was about the animals and the monkeys and the penguins. This version on Madagascar  incorporated more music, including the best version of “I like to • Read More »

Around this time of last year, Sri Lanka did not have any 3D movie theater.  If you wanted to have a 3D movie experience, only choice was to go for a movie while in another county. Finally with the end of 2011, MC Cineplex opened with one 3D theater. Now we are half way through 2012 and there • Read More »

January 20, 2012 | By Rakhitha | 1 Comment | Filed in: Movies, Tech, TV.

For those who use Wikipedia, Facebook, Twitter, Google,  SOPA/PIPA is not news any more. I am not going to describe those again as you can find all about its good, bad, and ugliness by just searching for those two horrible acronyms. Piracy is a problem for any industry I am not  trying to defend it. But this • Read More »

September 15, 2010 | By Rakhitha | 6 Comments | Filed in: Movies, TV.

Water; Earth; Fire; Air; Long ago four nations lived in harmony. Then everything changed when fire nation attacked. But to really foul things up, Shyamalan made a movie out of it. This is old news.

Invictus

April 12, 2010 | By Rakhitha | 1 Comment | Filed in: Movies, Uncategorized.

Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and • Read More »

March 8, 2010 | By Rakhitha | 8 Comments | Filed in: Me, Myself & I, Movies.
