Crop And Save
I'm originally from Bloemfontein in South Africa and although I love it here in the US, I'm still somewhat patriotic and proud of South Africa's achievements in the past years.
i love films and especially horror, the classics and of course everything south african, especially District 9 and my favourite actress is naturally charlize theron.
Black Sails (2014)
Black Sails bound to dominate the ratings
I was fortunate to attend ComicCon for the STARZ preview of their new pirate adventure BLACK SAILS and also recently watched the early release of episode 1 online. From the on-set it's important to state that popular series like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad first premiered on television to a very small audience and eventually became global hits as word got around. They started off as highly complicated, seriously involved and slow sleeper narrative drama's, but soon audiences were drawn into their worlds with their complex, layered and multi-faceted characters. I truly believe that the above certainly applies to this new gritty TV series. Sure, there's the expected sex, violence, nudity and profanity, but not for one moment is this gratuitous and uncalled for in the specific style and genre of this period piece. The amazing sets, costumes and general attention to intricate detail is astounding and I believe, quite unique and unexpected for original cable television production. Some critics initially expected this Michael Bay production to be meaningless, non-stop action sequences with very little depth, storyline and character development. While other reviewers offered that there was perhaps not enough action and too much conversation and multi- layered story-lines. I honestly see this series offering audiences everything that they'd expect, want and desire in an action drama. There is clearly more than meets the eye in the Pilot episode and I imagine that fans will eventually be drawn into this colorful world as the story develops over the coming weeks and months. It excites me that the series has already been renewed for a second season, as clearly the writers have a lot to tell.
