    Oh ok, that probably explains it. It ended after the job question. I currently don't have a job.

    What Movie to Watch Nowdays when The Cinema are Open?

    How are the protocols in the cinema? I already read that people can't sit beside each other. How about masks? If it is necessary to wear a mask during the movie I will continue to live without cinema and wait till stuff is available online (netflix etc.) or on physical form.

    Bule living in middle class neighbourhood experience

    I can relate at least a bit to it. It didn't happen in our garage but our front yard, where we lived before. It was just the local election, but still an interesting thing to watch.😁

    Do you like Indonesian movies?

    I have yet to see The Night Comes For Us. How did you feel about The Raid 2? I watched it several times with different people and I feel it is a bit too long overall. Don't get me wrong, the action is awesome. I just feel the story, although it is not bad, isn't really as epic or exciting as...

    Bule living in middle class neighbourhood experience

    Usually there are no big problems in such areas. I lived in a kampung before, with poor to middle class people and never had any problem. Sure the people are curious, but they always are(ik an apartment tower or super high class neighborhood probably less, yeah but also not totally NOT from my...

    Do you like Indonesian movies?

    Another movie I would like to recommend is "Love For Sale". Sure it has its sweet parts but is for most of the time really a down to earth movie with good acting and likable characters. Really enjoyed his bittersweet love-drama.

    Do you like Indonesian movies?

    Thanks for this, another movie to add to my list. I heard from many people that Satan's Slaves by the same director is good too.

    Do you like Indonesian movies?

    What a coincidence, actually I wanted to advise you not to watch this one at first.😅 I can assure you it is probably the least entertaining of the ones i mentioned. I threw it in here cause a lot of people really liked it. I mostly liked the look and the camera. Content wise I was a bit...

    Do you like Indonesian movies?

    I gotta warn you though, Iam sometimes pretty easy to be pleased when it comes to movies. I never lost my appetite for "simple" entertainment. Some guys I know really have become movie snobs over the years. My taste is still all over the place from "stupid" movies to art movies and everything in...

    Do you like Indonesian movies?

    I also hope that some people can help you with that. I watch the movies on Netflix with English subtitles since my Bahasa Indonesia is also not that good. So at least i can follow the story. Some movies that I found pretty clear and with some passable storys recently were: Aruna & Her Palate...

    Do you like Indonesian movies?

    Cek Toko Sebelah was really ok, I also would recommend "Imperfect" by the same director, if you like romantic comedys with a bit of a moral (not a religious moral in this case). Gundala was actually pretty good but it could have been so much better. It was a bit all over the place and wasn't...

    Do you like Indonesian movies?

    I also still have tons of movies unwatched. I brought my whole movie collection when we moved to Indonesia, a few thousand DVDs/Blu-rays and a lot I still didn't watch. Iam collecting for almost 22 years now and it would have broken my heart to sell or even throw away that stuff. Since I have...

    Do you like Indonesian movies?

    Yeah I get what you mean. Iam also no expert on acting or on teaching acting. I only would say, from what I know and observed, many asian actors in general have a very "offensive" way of acting. Don't get me wrong, there are universally excellent actors in every country. Just in general you...

    Indonesian born children speaking exclusively English

    I found this in the wikipedia, I just throw it in the ring. Maybe it helps: Defining "native language"Edit Based on origin: the language(s) one learned first (the language(s) in which one has established the first long-lasting verbal contacts). Based on internal identification: the...
