Concluded by Ratajit |November 18, 2018

**งานเขียนของ รตจิตรนี้ ถือเป็นวิทยาทานเพื่อให้ทุกคนได้อ่าน โดยเฉพาะอย่างยิ่งเพื่อน ๆ ที่ได้ใบสั่งส่งถึงบ้านจากสถานีตำรวจ เพื่อนที่ต้องจ่ายค่าปรับตามใบสั่ง รตจิตรเขียนจากประสบการณ์จริงที่ไม่ยุติธรรม ที่เกิดขึ้นกับตัว รตจิตรเอง ห้ามมิให้คัดลอกนำไปใช้เพื่อการค้าหรือนำไปใช้ในเว็บไซต์อื่น ไม่ว่ากรณีใด ๆ ทั้งนี้อนุญาตให้นำไปอ้างอิงใช้ในสถาบันการศึกษาเพื่อเป็นวิทยาทาน โดยต้องอ้างอิงแหล่งที่มาและชื่อผู้เขียน แต่ห้ามคัดลอก

ใบสั่งจากสถานีตำรวจ

วันที่ก่อนได้รับใบสั่ง

วันที่ 23 สิงหาคม 2561 รตจิตรไปทำบุญที่โรงพยาบาลสงฆ์ โดยเข้าร่วมกับศิษย์ธรรมะใต้โบสถ์ วัดญาณเวศกวัน โดยมีพระครูธรรมธร (พอจ.ครรชิต คุณวโร) เป็นประธาน หลังจากถวายพระเครื่อง หรือก็คือ MP 3 เสียงธรรมะที่ให้พระสงฆ์ได้ฟังจากวิทยุ หรือธรรมะจากวิทยุนั่นเอง รตจิตรและเพื่อน ๆ ได้ถวายแด่พระภิกษุอาพาธ ต่อด้วยการถวายเพล รวมถึงพิธีบังสกุล และทำบุญแก่โรงพยาบาลสงฆ์อีกจำนวนหนึ่ง ก่อนที่รตจิตรจะขับรถกลับจากโรงพยาบาลสงฆ์ เวลาประมาณ 12:22 น.

ข้อหาใบสั่งจากตำรวจ

ข้อมูลในใบสั่ง: เหตุเกิดวันที่ 23 สิงหาคม 2561 เวลา 12:22 น.
ใบสั่งส่งถึงบ้าน: วันที่ 2 ตุลาคม 2561 เวลาประมาณ 14 น.
วันที่ 25 ตุลาคม 2561 เวลา 16:35 น. รตจิตรโทรหาสถานีตำรวจ

ถูกใบสั่ง จะทำอย่างไรดี

รตจิตร ขับรถมามากกว่า 33 ปี และขับรถมาตลอดด้วย ยิ่งไปกว่านั้นช่วงหนึ่งที่รตจิตรทำงานอยู่ที่บริษัทขายรถเก๋ง รตจิตร ต้องขับรถหลายยี่ห้อ เพราะเป็นรถเก๋งของบริษัท ถ้าวันไหนต้องเอารถคันนั้นไปรับลูกค้า และรถยังไม่กลับมาก เจ้านายก็จะให้ขับรถเก๋งคันอื่นกลับบ้านแทน รตจิตรเป็นคนขับรถที่ปฏิบัติตามกฎหมายจราจรเสมอมา ปรากฎว่า วันนั้น ขากลับจากทำบุญที่โรงพยาบาลสงฆ์แล้ว เมื่อขับออกจากร.พ.สงฆ์ รตจิตรต้องไป U-Turn อีกฝั่งของถนนศรีอยุธยา รถค่อนข้างว่าง รตจิตรมั่นใจว่า รตจิตรขับรถเบี่ยงไปทางเลนขวาเพื่อกลับรถ คือจากเลนช่อง 2 ไป 3 โดยทับเส้นประ แต่อาจจะพอดี ๆ หรือสิ้นสุดเส้นประพอดิบพอดี ทำให้กล้องซึ่งอยู่ด้านหน้าจับภาพว่า รตจิตรทับเส้น หรือเฉียดเส้นทึบหางปลาเล็กน้อย

เมื่อถูกใบสั่ง ให้ชำระค่าปรับตามม.140

ถูกใบสั่ง จะทำอย่างไรดี

ผ่านไปเกือบ 3 เดือน รตจิตรได้รับใบสั่งจากสน.พญาไท ว่า รตจิตรต้องจ่ายค่าปรับ 500 บาท เพื่อ…… รตจิตรรู้สึกไร้สาระมาก หลายคดีดัง ๆ ที่ทำให้เสียชื่อเสียงแก่ประเทศชาติ หลายคดีที่เป็นตัวอย่างย่ำแย่ในโลก social network และอีกหลายคดีที่ทำให้คนอื่นเดือดร้อน หรือได้รับความเสียหายทั้งด้านชื่อเสียงและการงาน ตำรวจให้เสียค่าปรับแค่ 500 บาทเอง

รตจิตรสืบค้นจาก google map

ข้อมูลตามใบสั่งของตำรวจเชื่อไม่ได้ทั้งหมด เนื่องจากพอ รตจิตรตรวจสอบจาก google map ดูแล้วเหมือนรถของรตจิตรไม่ได้ทับเส้นทึบ รตจิตรจึงโทรหาตำรวจที่สถานีตำรวจที่ออกใบสั่ง เพื่อขอดู Video จากกล้อง ปรากฏว่า สถานีตำรวจไม่สามารถให้หลักฐานวีดิโดได้ เพราะเก็บข้อมูลไว้เพียง 30 วัน ข้อสงสัยของรตจิตรเกี่ยวกับใบสั่ง
1. ทำไมกว่าใบสั่งจะมาถึง ใช้เวลาถึง 41 วัน ทั้ง ๆ ที่สน. เก็บหลักฐานไว้ได้แค่ 30 วัน
2. สถานีตำรวจ Back up ข้อมูลเพียง 30 วัน
3. ทำไมใช้คำว่าผู้ต้องหาในใบสั่งกรณีนี้ คำพูดค่อนข้างรุนแรงมาก

ข้อระวังในใบสั่ง

รตจิตรไม่เชื่อข้อกล่าวหา

รตจิตรโทรติดต่อเจ้าหน้าที่ตำรวจที่สน. ร้อยเวรเป็นคนรับสาย และไม่สามารถตอบคำถามได้ จึงขอเบอร์รตจิตร ร้อยเวรโทรกลับมาอีกครั้ง บอกว่าให้ดูหลักฐานไม่ได้เพราะข้อมูลถูกลบไปหมด จึงให้คุยกับสารวัตร ซึ่งก็ตอบรตจิตรไมได้ และบอกว่าจะติดต่อรตจิตรกลับ ซึ่งรตจิตรก็ถามด้วยว่าภายในกี่โมง

รตจิตรรู้ดีอยู่แล้วว่าสารวัตร ก็คงเหมือนตำรวจนายอื่น ๆ ที่รับสายไปส่ง ๆ เช่นนั้น และก็จริงตามความคาดหมาย สารวัตรไม่โทรกลับ

ความเห็นส่วนตัวของ รตจิตร

1. ใบสั่งไม่ได้พิสูจน์ว่า รตจิตรผิดจริง
รตจิตรคิดว่าการเฉียดเส้นทึบเล็กน้อย ไม่ได้ซีเรียส ไม่ได้สร้างความเดือดร้อนให้ใครเลยแม้แต่น้อย ถนนช่วงนั้นหลังจากที่ รตจิตรถวายเพลพระสงฆ์ที่ ร.พ.สงฆ์เสร็จ ค่อนข้างจะโล่ง เพื่อน ๆ ลองดูในภาพ แทบจะไม่มีรถ และการขับของรตจิตรไม่สามารถสร้างความเดือนร้อนให้ใครเลย ยกเว้นอย่างเดียวคือ กระทบรายได้ของสถานีตำรวจ
2. ตำรวจไม่สามารถพิสูจน์ได้ตามข้อกล่าวหา
สารวัตรตอบคำถามรตจิตรไม่ได้เลยว่า จำเอาหลักฐานอะไรมาพิสูจน์ เรื่องไร้สาระนี้ เพราะไม่มีหลักฐาน และยังจะให้ รตจิตรซึ่งเป็นชาวบ้านคนหนึ่ง ต้องไปสน.เพื่อคุยจกับฝ่ายสืบสวน ซึ่งถ้ารตจิตรไปตามนั้น ค่ารถไป-กลับก็ 500 บาทเช่นกัน

3. ตำรวจไม่รักษาคำพูดว่าจะโทรกลับ

ข้อระวังในใบสั่ง

คำแนะนำจากบุคคลอื่นถ้าโดนใบสั่ง

1. ให้เก็บไว้ก่อน
เพื่อรตจิตรจ่ายค่าปรับในวันตำรวจแห่งชาติ หรือ ทุก ๆ 13 ตุลาคม ของทุกปี เพราะจ่ายเพียงคดีละ 100 บาท ไม่ต้องจ่ายถึง 500 บาท
2. ให้ไปที่ฝ่ายสืบสวน สน.ที่ออกใบสั่ง
ในเมื่อตำรวจไม่มีหลักฐาน ในขณะที่รตจิตรสามารถยืนยันด้วยหลักฐาน 2 ข้อตามนี้ ฝ่ายสืบสวนอาจยอมให้รตจิตรจ่ายค่าปรับ 200 บาท หลักฐาน 2 อย่างได้แก่
(1) ดูจาก google map ว่าช่วงที่รถของรตจิตรอยู่นั้น เป็นเส้นประ
(2) ไปสถานที่จริงเพื่อวัดว่าหางปลานั้นเป็นเส้นทึบหรือเส้นประช่วงต้นไม้ต้นที่เท่าไร เป็นต้น

บทสรุปของใบสั่ง

รตจิตรจ่ายค่าปรับที่ธนาคาร กรุงไทย จำกัด (มหาชน) เป็นจำนวนเต็ม 500 บาท แม้ว่าจะรู้สึกไม่ยุติธรรม เพราะคนทับเส้นทึบยิ่งกว่ารตจิตรมีเยอะมาก ตามท้องถนน และทับเกาะเทียมเสียด้วย แต่เพราะความรำคาญกาปฏิบัติงานของตำรวจ เพราะความที่รตจิตรอยากให้เรื่องจบ ๆ ไม่เสียเวลาการทำมาหากิน และถือว่าเป็นการทำบุญให้สถานีตำรวจนั้น ๆ ไป

เกาะเทียม เส้นหางปลา

Give me a good reason to leave my job, please.

I just found myself become more selfish than the last 6 years. I was a Thai students who graduated in New York and finish a Master degree at Sydney. I went back to Thailand 6 years ago, and became a lecturer in a large university in Thailand. My goal was to provide the knowledge to my students and to have some free time to write my own novel.

The first year of being a university lecturer in Thailand is like a heaven. I got some free time to write the beginning part of my own novel. I got a chance to bring my students to go outside the classroom. I let them take the photos in the important places in Bangkok, and sometimes, I asked them to draw Thai temples.

The first year passed so fast. Everything changed in the secend year. I have to teach 7 days a week. I got no free time. I have to travel to another far-away campus to give a class. They also forced people to continue study in the doctoral degree. I have to go to school again, but in Thailand. I registered for 2 classes in one semester, but I had to teach 30 hours a week.

dog student work alone leave home

I had no more time to prepare my teaching at that moment. I did not correct and provide the suggesting in my students’ worksheet as I had done before. I felt really bad. My graduate school is about 3-hour far from my workplace. I had to run around 3 places each week. They said that if the employees did not continue the education, they would fire us so soon.

While I work so hard and had lack of free time, I compare myself to someone else in the same school. Like, one of my close friend, he has a lot of free time. He asked me to go to see movie with him, and to join his lunch and dinner. I think it is a good thing. He is a friendly one, but I got no time to do all those things. Not just only him, who can do many stuffs. Some also work outside the school. They have secret jobs in other private companies and earn a lot of money.

Moreover, these people got a higher evaluation score than me. Many got a higher salary than me. I began to feel that the life is unfair. I could see that my attitude is changed. I want to do thing for myself more than before. My dream has not been completed yet. I spent too much time for the university, without getting things I actually need. Those people in the higher position keep saying that this university is the university of happiness. However, for me, it is not. My happiness is when I got enough time for my family and for writing my own novel. I do not have both yet. Although I have dinner with my family, but In think I should have spent more day time with them, not just at night.

Those people think that to have a happiness is to work hard to push the university to be in the highest place in the world. They want to see the university being one of the top ten of the country. They believe that if we got into that ranking, everyone will be proud and happy. That is the definition of the happiness they believe. That is not the happiness I need. I need my time. I need to be someone I have dreamed to be. I want to be a cool author who write a famous novel. I want to be a cool artist being known in a specific group of people. My dream does not got walked yet. What should I do then?

Is he going to be a selfish husband?

I had had a friend. I do not want to name him here. So, I would like to give him a nickname, Fred, to call him in this post.

Fred is one of a few faculty members who is good-looking and also has a good-looking girlfriend. Some think that he is very genius. For me, it is like a stereotype, that if he is good-looking and always wear a formal cloth, everyone will think that he is responsible and intelligent.

I did not think like others since the first time I met this guy. In my life, I meet many people with this appearance, but have no responsibility. I did not say that I prejudiced him, but I say that I just waited to see his actual behaviors.

Once, he asked me for the first 30 minutes of my class for his friends from a TV show to shoot a footage in my class. 30 minutes is okay for me to give him. And it is a good thing if my students could be in a show. Therefore, I allow his friends to shoot the footage in my class.

My class hour is from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM. You know what? His friends could get the camera ready in the first 30 minutes. Many crews just begin to download the files to put into the computer (as a part of the show, they need to have a powerpoint slide). They finished everything at 6:00 PM. This means, he asked me for half an hour, but they took me 2 hours.

It is worse than that. The time during the process got slower than the expectation, no one walked to inform me what actually happened. I was waiting in the teacher room, and I have to keep walking to the class to see if they finished their job. And after 2 hours that they just finish their job, no crews walked to inform me that I could begin my class. It was my own students who walk to me and tell me that I could go into the class then.

My students felt tired and wanted to go home instead of keep learning for another hour. I gave them a short class, so they could go. Those crew from the TV shows did not say any “thanks” to me, did not inform me when they had gone, and did not give anything to my students. They just came to take the advantage from us. They just wanted a footage with students in the class.

I told the guy, the good-looking faculty member, what happened. He did not care, I know. He just said sorry, but I could see his face. He was not actually sorry, because he was laughing and smiling.

It is worse than that. The officer of my faculty walked to the classroom, and he did not see me in the classroom at my hours. He just checked that I did not come to teach. It is true of him, but it is not totally my fault. My fault is that I said, okay, at the first time to that guy.

Next 4-5 months, that guy I hate got married. I guess most people in the same program went to his wedding ceremony. I did not go there. I cannot forgive. I hope he is gone, gone from my life.

A good thing that I did not go to his wedding ceremony is that he did not talk to me again after the day. He may think that I am selfish that I did not go there, but in fact, he is one of the most selfish guys I have ever met.

Your best friend always lies to you. Why?

I got a friend when I went to a graduate school. I, a kind of, liked her, because, with my first judgement, she had a quality that could be my future girlfriend. We were nice to each other. We went shopping together at a few shopping malls we could find in a small town. At that moment, I thought we could get along well.

However, she started being a liar, a very big liar. She missed our appointment twice without initial informing. Both of the times, I kept waiting for her for whole day. We both got the hotspot in our apartment, and also the internet in the devices. When I tried to contact her to ask if she would come or not, she did not provide me any answer. She disappeared from the connection and did not say anything to me. Later, when we meet at the school, she pretended like there was nothing happen.

After that, I felt like, she was not real for me. She had too many reasons to say that everything was not her mistake. It was only because she is the big liar. I felt I was alone for a week and trying to stop myself thinking about her.

Figure 1: Conflict with friends

We did not talk to each other about half year. Later, we met again in other school in Thailand. We enrolled in the same class with the same teacher. I made a decision to forgive her and became her friend again. I am a guy with a short memory. I did not feel that I am hurt that much anymore.

Later, I knew from the teacher that she told him a bad thing about me, and it was not the truth. The teacher did not know that she was (again) the liar. I was suddenly angry. I told the truth to the teacher. I dis not know if he would whether believe me or not. He asked me to calm down and forgive her.

Right now, I still have to meet her sometimes at the school. I feel like what I am doing is to pretend to be nice. I will never hurt her in turn by telling a lie. I am not good at that and I do not want to be like that. If she asked me for help, okay, I will help, but that does not mean I forgive or forget everything she has done to me, but it is because I think it is the thing that a normal person should do. I cannot feel like nothing had happened between us.

So, what is the song that I should sing for her? I want to sing some alternative rock or punk. Dear the readers, please name me one song.

Get someone else to write your research papers?

S.W. Eden

Cite this journal as: Eden, S. W. (2018). Get someone else to write your research papers? Retrieved from http://sw-eden.net

I am a very ordinary teacher in a school/program in a large university in Thailand. I also know other teachers from other university. Everyone with this kind of job, the university teachers or lecturers, will have to upgrade themselves to be assistant professor, associate professor, and professor, respectively. Therefore, we read the rule written by the government, about what kind of papers or academic works that we have to submit for the committee to judge or promote us.

The rules say that the academic works could be the research paper or academic paper that got publish in the conference proceedings and journals. They could be the creative work, such as movies or games that have published academic paper supporting them. People I know from other universities walk follow this rules. They could submit their research paper published in conference proceeding to the committee to consider.

However, my university creates their own rule for some reason. They do not allow me and other employees to submit the conference papers, but only papers published in the journals. This makes our life harder than other people in other university.

In fact, there was an Easter egg hidden in this policy.

she the president
Figure 1: research the search from ocean

Some friends told me that many employees bought the research papers with the money about 400-500 USD per a paper. In other words, they hired someone else to write it for them. They did not actually know anything about the paper or even the topic of the paper. After they bought the paper, they submit it to the conference in order to travel around many countries outside Thailand.

Because the president of my university discovered this Easter egg, she believes that most conference papers are not written by the authors appeared on them. This might be the reason that she does not allow anyone to use conference papers to send to the committees in order to be promoted to be an assistant professor, and also other levels.

I do not like the way she thinks though. I have written all conference papers by myself. I have never hired anyone to do it for me, but I lose the chance to use them to submit to the committees and being promote. I am both angry and depress. The president makes the world unfair. Why doesn’t she just get rid of the cheating people who buy the academic work? If she could do it, the honest ones will be able to use their conference papers to get into the higher job position.

Got an F or Fail from major courses, What can I do?

S. W. Eden

Cite this journal as: Eden, S. W. (2018). Got an F or Fail from major courses, What can I do? Retrieved from http://sw-eden.net

I am a university lecturer. I know that I should be very serious and all the students should be serious about their education, too. When I was an undergraduate student, about 10 years ago, some friends got an F and I have got a couple of F, too. Although I had never had an absent and I submitted all the class assignment in those two classes, I still got F because I fail in the final exam.

Today, I have been a university lecturer for 6 years, in Thailand. Now is the time that all universities have to think about their future, regarding the decreased number of new students. I think the university would need to consider about the “give an F” policy. They may not like the teachers to give the F to the students, because that reduces students’ satisfaction. Students may quit the university if they found they get many Fs.

The topic that I would like to discuss here is that, should I give an F to a very bad student? Bad students are those who often have absent. In the whole semester, they came to class only 2-3 times. Some did not come to take an exam, but they asked their parents to write the letter to ask me to allow their sons to take the exam after the examination date.

teacher and funny student
Figure 1: Teacher and funny student cartoon drawing

Almost all of these bad students do not submit any assignment, and they often said that they had other work to do to earn the money to help their family. I do not know if it is real or not, but I think, if it is real, they should drop and register for the class again when they have more free time.

Some professors in my university give these bad students the F, but some do not. Let’s talk about those who do not give the F for very bad students. We should be curious about what they actually think.

I have talk to one of them. He told me that if the students are very bad, he should allow them to keep being in the school until they graduate. This is because if no one gives an opportunity for these bad students, they would leave the school and do some illegal job in the future. On the other hand, if they are bad students who graduate, they will automatically find the job that most people look for. This way will help the society as a whole.

However, I still think that this thought is not entirely right. It might be right, but it does not fair for all other students who try very hard to graduate.

Last semester, I allowed a very bad student to pass my class with the grade D-. In fact, he should get an F, because he came to class only 2 times. Then, he took the exam. The total score he got was 30 from 100. I feel really bad about what I have done. I should not let him pass.

You guys… Do you want to say something about this issue. If I engage in this kind of situation again, what should I do?

I will Burnout. What can a teacher do?

I have never feel like this before. I have a negative feeling about the place I am working at. I do not want to name the organization here, and also my name. Only thing I could say is that I am in Bangkok, Thailand. I have worked here about half a decade. And many times, I think that it is enough for me. Many things have changed. I had had many good students in my class, but now there were a less number of good students.

I feel I love a group of Public Relation students, but lately, some of them (3 students) betrayed me twice. They took a photo of me to make an evident for some purpose. One of them said that I gave her a wrong point.

You know what? I knew what I did. I am sure about my grading. These students have problem with the “less than 1 point” (based on 100 points). They fight against me for that “less than 1 point” thing. I could spread negative words about me that the grade was not fair for them.

Hence, what is my problem? My problem is that I am very disappointed. These three students failed me. I feel like, the love I gave them before is nothing. However, I still have a positive attitude about other Public Relation students. I like to teach them better than many other students from other program.

I wish that there would be only these three students that I may have a negative attitude with. I want to keep a positive feeling and all the good moment for all other students.

Put your friends’ names in your own work. Why?

S.W. Eden

Cite this journal as: Eden, S.W. (2018). Put your friends’ names in your own work. Why? Retrieved from http://sw-eden.net

My beloved professor, my advisor in my doctoral dissertation, told me that I should put the name of my friends as the second and the third author in my research paper. This is because it will help them in the teacher evaluation system, and also the course program evaluation audited by the government.

In other words, my friends and I are in the school of digital media in a university. The laws (or rules) are that every teacher in the school needs to publish a research paper. If not, the government will shut down the school program, and there will be no more freshmen in the upcoming academic year.

This is the reason that I have to add my friends in the same school as the second and the third author of my research paper. I have to keep my school alive. And I do not feel bad to have the names of my friends on my paper. Everything seems to be okay.

Classroom in Thailand, and Thai people
Figure 1: Thai religion, a part of education

My university also provides the award for teachers who could publish their research paper, and that is a good thing. If I am the only one author of the published paper, I will get 200 USD. It is not much money in Thailand, but it could encourage me to keep writing the paper. However, when I put my friends’ name on my paper, I will get less money according to the percent or proportion of my work.

Before now, I filled in the form that I did 90% of the work, and other teachers did 10%. This way, I will not get 20 USD, which is 10% with the name of my friends. I do not know if the university know that I did 100% of the work.

Another annoying rule is that only one author of each research paper could receive the money. This means that my friend will not be able to get 20 USD, too.

This is how I lost the benefit when I help my friends and my program to survive.

And now, it is even worse than what I have told you. The university announced the new rule of rewarding. Every author of the research paper has to have at least 10% of the work. This mean, if I added 5 co-authors in my research paper and 10% was given per each, I would left only 50% of work. This means I will earn only 100 USD per one paper.

I called the guy who worked in this rewarding office, and I try to explain that I added the co-authors to keep my school survival, and these co-authors did not have anything to do with my paper.

Do you know what they tell me? I am very upset and feel depressive for many weeks.

They told me, like, the teacher (like me), who had many co-authors in the same work, was selfish, because other co-authors did not have a chance to get paid, especially when the first author filled in the form that she did 90% of the work. But! we could not forget that there is the rule that only one author in each paper could ask for the reward.

Hence, the point is that they did not actually think that I am the selfish, but they just did not want to pay money to the teacher who could publish the research paper.

I really hate this rule. I do not know what kind of brain was used to form such this policy. I want to quit my teacher job. Although 200 USD is not that much money to force me to leave the job, but these rules and policies make me depressive. They do not encourage their employees, but they show their narrow-mind through their thought toward their employees.

I am not the selfish one. I still do what I have done to keep my school opening in the following years. I want to see new students join my school and I do not want to see anyone got fired from their job.

Halloween movie review

**The movie review of Halloween movie written by Ratajit for the Halloween movie fan-club to read or others who are interested in this movie. Ratajit writes out her opinion from her experience in seeing such movie the entire film series. Therefore, all thought hereunder are Ratajit’s copyright which is not allowed to copy. However, Ratajit allow one who wants to use this article for educational purpose but he or she has to refer source of the article, sw-eden.net and Ratajit name, too.

In Thailand, Halloween movie is always released on every October 31. For the updated series is also released on October 31, 2018. The movie consists of 11 films* but just one film produced by Rob Zombie before the current one was not released in Ratajit’s country, Thailand. By Ratajit’s thought, the reason may be about it is too severe, too violent or is the goriest slasher film compared with other films of Halloween. Moreover, the time this film was released may be not suitable for Thailand’s situation on the same period.

Halloween movie review

After Ratajit seeing all films except the first film, Ratajit likes the current one because of these following reasons:

1.The heroine is an old woman
In Ratajit’s opinion, the heroine is not only woman but also old too, while the heroes in normal movies are men or young women and even children for sometimes.
2.The family unity
Ratajit see many policemen in Huddersfield try so hard to arrest Michael Myers without success. However, Laurie Strode’s family which are women can finally feat the killer, Michael Myers. This is the power of family unity which are grandmother, mother and niece.

3.Michael Myers face is under the mask as usual
Ratajit thinks that Michael Myers in Halloween 2009 by Rob Zombie always unmasks, while other Halloween films, never. When seeing any film of Halloween, Ratajit hopes to see Michael Myers under his mask. As well, other fan-club people may think like Ratajit. Therefore, when Michael Myers in this new film 2018, is masked as usual, the movie is 100% Halloween.

4.Ratajit’s personal preference of Laurie Strode
Jamie Lee Curtis casts as Laurie Strode like other film of Halloween. She is a professional actress. She is very strong, quick and really careful until the film is really excited.

5.Sam Loomis himself is psychosis
Ratajit used to have some bad experience from body check up. A psychiatrist wanted my friend to be psychosis after testing many people and no one are psychosis. This result makes Ratajit feel not okay with psychiatrist occupation. For the Halloween film, the movie plot can support my thought because Sam Loomis, is finally psychosis, himself. Sam Loomis can easily kill the police just to take Michael Myers for next studying.
