Yesterday, I watched the controversial movie The Rum Diary by Bruce Robinson and starring by Johnny Depp, Giovanni Ribisi and Aaron Eckhart, among others. It’s fantastic! One of the best movies I’ve seen in the last times and I cannot understand the bad critics.

Of course, the film criticizes the dreams of money and superficial ambitions of Western world. In my opinion, this is not a reason to write bad critics but to meditate its truths. A wrong ethics which started in the 60s (as the movie) and has been developing all of these decades to arrive at the current economic crisis (economic and moral).

Furthermore, The Rum Diary is not a sad film in spite it tells about corruption in the press and institutions, underdevelopment, environmental damage and every kind of abuses. The Rum Diary is a very entertaining movie, with downright funny moments

The Rum Diary film is based on the novel of the same name by Hunter S. Thompson and it was released on October 28, 2011.

If you have the chance, I recommend you this movie. Super!

Plot: Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp) is a hard-drinking American journalist who takes a job at a besieged newspaper in San Juan, Puerto Rico. His Surrealist editor, Lotterman, orders him to write silly articles about tourists and horoscopes, Paul wants more. Then, Paul knows Sala, an equally alcoholic reporter, and their adventure starts. Sanderson, a wealthy entrepreneur, hires Paul to flack for a group of investors who plan to buy an island (a natural protected space near the capital) and build a huge resort. Paul ethics begins to awake in un unexpected way.

Furthermore, Paul falls in love with Sanderson girl-friend, the beautiful Chenault. Loyalties face challenges when he and Sala get in trouble with locals. Is alcohol the only responsible?

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
