Each Moment Ask Yourself...

At each moment, ask yourself, what do I want to do? And how fast can I do it? Don't do random. Be like Jason Bourne, always have a purpose and intention.

Pay attention to your surroundings, what's happening, make everything a game. Even brushing your teeth. How fast can I brush it? How many minutes did I use to wash up today? It seems ridiculous, but that is the first step towards an autotelic self.

Hancock

The movie Hancock has an interesting concept of a down and out loser superhero who does his job but is unappreciated by the public and authorities.

It isn't so much an action movie, nor a comedy but tries to be more of a dramatic movie. It tries to pack so much within such a small time (barely 1 1/2 hours) that there is hardly time for many jokes. (You can count them on one hand.)

If you don't know, the movie had to go through additional shooting due to concerns about certain scenes. Therefore the story didn't seem to gel together and it comes out like a patchwork of many things combined together.

I still feel that the concept is good enough for a sequel, but hopefully they will fine tune the direction and editing.

My verdict: 3 stars out of 5 (I expected better from Will Smith after his performance in I Am Legend)
