Move break (300): Tonight, we dine in hell!

The 300 Spartan, originally uploaded by mo_mughrabi.

It's almost a week of waiting to the movie to be released. I was SHOCKED!

I found out that the story behind the 300 Spartans are not limited to this particular movie. In 1962 a British movie was released with the same exact story (The 300 Spartans).

Technology in movies production has moved ages since then. The current 300 movie going in theaters now, is completely different from any other historical movie I have seen.

The story is about the battle of Thermopylae an amazing incident. When the King of Spartan Leonidas led an army of 300 men to a battle against the Persian army. It was a battle of glory, "Spartans taught never to retrieve, never to surrounded. Taught the death in a battle field is the greatest glory he could achieve", Those are the words of Leonidas.

Flying from happiness

Motion stop, originally uploaded by mo_mughrabi.

I don't know how am supposed to blog about something without giving clues. Although, one person might be able to understand what am talking about, today I started up way too fresh. Well, let's say good things are happening – and I hope it keeps on happening – until then.... Wish me luck!

Underwater picture

Scuba diving, originally uploaded by mo_mughrabi.

I was really expecting a better result (hehe) turned out the camera I was using is hardly functioning. 10% of the roll was noised - as the one above - the rest were miserable. The fact of going underwater is not reasonable for human brain to process, just like when aircrafts were invented. But, when my goggles started sinking under water, I found out there is much under there to see. The underwater-life is extremely beautiful, and not just the life! The rhythm all these creatures make is just amazing.

Eventually, I realized that beneath the surface is the most exciting part of all.

Harley Davidson - Kuwait

Harley Davidson - Kuwait, originally uploaded by mo_mughrabi.

The fishing harbor visit was a complete success. After such long walk and awesome roll of picture you definitely need a coffee. so, when we got to StarBucks on the Marina side (Sharq) there were Harley Davidson festival going on. A lot of people came from all over the GCC on their rides, press and other fans.

The crowd was reasonable and gave me a good chance to roll another 13 picture. The bikes were from new models and from all colors and shapes, including Choppers. I had to document all this on photos.. You can check them out on my flickr set..

I uploaded 20 pictures to my flickr click here to check them out.

Have a great day every one,

Movie break: Ghost Rider

Two weeks back I went to theater for Ghost Rider. Before I go ahead and niggle in the details, I always believed that movies only worth going to theater when the direction is extremely good. And by extremely good, maybe a wild imagination that was put so good even your eyes won’t believe!

Fiction or non-fiction it’s not important as long as cameras are detailed, graphic are stunning and off course sound track that takes you to another dimension.

Moving on to where we were, the movie was quite a shock to me. I never seen Nicolas Cage in such a role, I thought he was really getting old for that kind of stunt. Although, most the movie a graphical designed character was playing the role.

Off course with SonyPictures producing the movie you will obviously notice the amazing and very detailed editing.

Above picture for the biker Ghost rider getting help from Ranger Ghost rider on a horse, it’s quite an image they draw.
