The Bull (2002)
Okay documentary, funny narration
This film is a documentary about the life of a Spanish fighting bull before his fight. It covers from the time the bull was born up to the day he is taken away to the ring. Sadly it does not cover the transportation to the ring or the actual fight.
The narration is in English, it seems they tried to be very poetic, but it so cheesy and arty farty that it is just funny. In my opinion this actually makes the film better than it would be if it had a standard narration.
As well as covering the life of the bull, they also have short clips of other animals that live in the same area as the bull. The bird that makes its nest in cow dung was quite interesting.
Overall a reasonably interesting film with funny narration.
This Year-London (1951)
Bobbing Up And Down Like This
The film follows a group of factory workers from Leicester on their annual day trip out together, this year visiting London. The film starts at Leicester station and then follows the group on the train down to London.
When they arrive in London they take a bus tour round the city, followed by a boat trip to Hampton Court Palace. At Hampton Court Palace they eat a meal, then the group is set free to explore London individually.
Given that this is some of the group's first time in the city, is it a good idea to let them roam free? What horrors await them in the city? You'll have to watch the film to find out!
There seems to be two presenters/narrators, a posh guy and a bloke with a slightly yorkshire accent. There doesn't seem to be any live sound, except when the group are singing 'Bobbing Up And Down Like This' on the boat.
The best bit is when the guy says that when he was telling the group about the Tower of London and the Beefeaters, someone had shouted out 'Corned Beefeaters!', and that he wished he had thought of that joke. It reminded me very much of the sort of jokes that the presenters on my local radio station, HFM make.
For example, one of my favourite HFM jokes is: "Two chips in a bag, one says to the other 'Oooee oooeee oooeee oooeee ooo', y' know. The other says 'Why don't you get some cold water then?'" ... Absolute classic joke!
Anyway, I would whole heartedly recommend this film to any fan of survival horror movies.
Excellent spoof of the Indiana Jones films
An all star cast (Hans Solo as Indiana Jones, Charles Widmore as General Ross, the janitor from Scrubs as FBI agent Smith, and Shia LaBeouff as the Frosties Kid) head up this hilarious parody of the Indiana Jones series of films.
Stephen Spielberg puts his past experience from directing ET: The Extra-Terrestrial to good use in Indiana Jones and The Crystal Skull, again dealing with the subject of alien life, but this time with a more comedic spin.
There may be more plot holes than a country road has pot holes, but so long as you can suspend your disbelief, you should find this film thoroughly enjoyable.
