ROSHAN’S ELEVEN: Bruce Willis Films

So Bruce Willis used to be someone I really liked a lot as a leading man in the 80s. Firstly because my sister and I used to love Moonlighting a lot (a detective show he starred with Cybil Sheppard) and later on when my cousins and I watched Die Hard & Die Hard 2 (c’mon, which teenager didn’t love the first two Die Hard films). Until 2000 he was a big name that I tried to follow but other than his apprentices in Friends I haven’t really loved his acting since that year.

Since then a few movies which I have watched were really good, especially the latest film that I have seen of his, which is 2018’s Death Wish (I just watched it 2 weeks ago). But here is my list of favourite 11 films of his.

  • Die Hard
  • The Fifth Element
  • Death Becomes Her
  • 12 Monkeys
  • Death Wish
  • The Sixth Sense
  • Die Hard 2
  • The Jackal
  • The Whole Nine Yards
  • The While Ten Yards
  • Unbreakable

Pen To Paper No More

Is letter-writing dead? Tell us why you think it is or isn’t (or should or shouldn’t be…).

I think letter writing is dead for me and for a lot of people. Emails and messages via SMS/Text, Whatsapp, Facebook, Signal etc has taken it’s place and is way, way more easier to do. Infact even emails unless it for’s official purposes is kinda dead.

But….there is a huge section of the population, whether it is here in India or in some other countries, who have very little access to computers, laptops, mobiles or tabs. Or none at all! How are they going to correspond? They will rely on the traditional snail mail approach and use stamps and envelops and go to a post office or a post box and mail their letters out to who ever it is that they are writing to. But I don’t think I can do it anymore. I used to love to get snail mail sent to me and I used to have a small but good set of pen pals.

I loved the concepts of getting to know people from magazines’ pen pal sections and sending them mails with your photo tucked in and receiving letters back from them. But that is a dead art. I can’t see myself doing that anymore nor do I see the need for resorting back to that. I have the internet. But it was fun while it lasted.
