The Last Hunt

The Last Hunt (A Bloodborne Tale)

 

The head of the beast comes off with a wet tearing sound. The victorious hunter breathes heavily, his coat drips with the blood of his prey. His finger still tightly clutch his instrument of death and a faint shaking can be noticed. He lingers in the pool of gore he just created, fear has not yet retracted her bony claws.

Steve Jobs

 

Tea: Rooibos Ginger

 

The creator of your favourite enslaving black squares is portrayed in a movie by the writer of The Social Network. And all of that is directed by Danny Boyle, a man with an amazing track record.

Second, the movie fits into the difficult times in Germany. And third, I just want to voice my opinion about it. With that being said let’s dive into this modern satire. Continue reading
