Goodbye Moodle, it was fun while it lasted

Goodbye Moodle. I've seen you grown from a wee nipper aged 1.7 to 2.3. We've had good times, we've had bad times, we've even had some fun times but it's time I moved on.
I've accepted a position as Multimeda / Social Media Developer at Leeds City College so I will unfortunately have to say goodbye to Moodle as my new role focuses primarily on the Social Media, Web aspects and online reputation for Leeds City College.

It's a role I'm excited about taking on and I can't wait to get stuck in.

What does this mean for all the amazing Moodle developments you've done for the Moodle Community? I hear you say.

Well first of all I can no longer support Moodle nor provide help to the community, no doubt I'll quite quickly get left behind as Moodle HQ crack on with core developments. However I will be keeping all existing Moodle related blog posts (it would be a shame to remove them).

But what about your amazing twitter accounts?

Well I'm glad you asked, I've primarily used 2 twitter accounts @SukhwantLota and @iSukhwant but I feel that it's a good time to retire @iSukhwant and stick to just one where I'll re-integrate all my existing blogs back as they once were a few years ago. I hope to be tweeting much more from this account as it has been a tad bit neglected lately especially as the Summer kicked in and my Moodle developments slowed down.

I would just like to add that it's been a pleasure working with the Moodle community over the past 4 years and I wish you all the very best.

Titan A.E. (2000)

Thursday, August 16, 2012 Sukhwant Lota 0 Comments


I've read that Titan A.E. had mixed reviews but I honestly can't see why? IMDB have rated it 6.5/10 but this is defiantly a 5/5 film for me.

The story is based around Cale Tucker (who's a bit of a pain to begin with) he is the last hope for a new Earth as the current Earth has been destroyed by the evil Drej who's only mission is to destroy the Human Race. I kind of liked the Drej, they were pure energy and blue, reminded me of the aliens from a Tomytronic toy I had as a kid.

The soundtrack is great and I think it fits right into the animation of the film if not slightly cheesy, but hey who said cheese isn't good right?

It's a great film which I haven't seen in a few years and I've now got a tough decision to make, whether I add this film into my all time favourites or not. One thing is for sure, I'm buying the Blu-Ray 5/5

Spider-Man (2002)

"With great power comes great responsibility"

This was one of the first new age super hero films that I really captured and engaged with, the special effects were ground-breaking at the time and still don't look half bad. 

That said I found the film was great, and it takes you through the journey of nerdy Peter Parker to becoming the Amazing Spider-Man with all the troubles and tribulations that come with the role.

Willem Dafoe is not bad as the psychotic Green Goblin but I'm not a big fan of Defoe so it's difficult to take him seriously with him laughing like a lunatic every 2 minutes!

It's always a pleasure to see the Flat-Iron building as the Daily Bugle Headquarters, something that I missed in The Amazing Spider-Man film.

Spider-Man was released in 2002 but teaser trailer of the film were shown from Summer 2001 before the World Trade Center attack which prompted the producers to leave out a very amazing scene from the film.  I've added it below, it's absolutely fantastic and sets the premise for the whole film. 5/5
