Three pieces will be posted this week. That will be all for the week. The theme is the future. And there should be more weeks with this theme as there is enough material to post. So next week may or may not be the same theme, but some thematic variety each week is probably better. The pieces this week are: two film reviews that were published elsewhere and an article that is already posted but reposting now. The reviews have the future as their theme or part theme. The film 13 Going on 30 is about a teenager thrusted into the future as a 30 year old. The film 2010 is a 1984 film set in the year 2010 and still with a relevant theme of US-Russia relations. The film reviews basically review while I allude to the theme in the review somehow.

Peter’s favourite book is the Bible in any version and reads Christian books, literature including children’s and adult, and film books. His most memorable movie is Amadeus. Musically, takes an interest in all sorts, but is more likely to listen to pop music, singer/songwriter, Christian music, and certain niche material, eschewing rock, and heavy metal generally. He was pinning his hopes on the All Whites getting into the Fifa World Cup, the Black Caps winning against England, and has been saddened and shocked by gun crimes in the United States. Covid-19 has not affected him directly but sees sticking to health and safety as a matter of survival. Resourceful, eclectic, and enthusiastic, he has won several accolades for cricket, public speaking, debating, and scripture reading. View all posts by peteswriting
