Borat entertains well throughout.
Now, Sacha Baron Cohen is great at doing different roles. I have known him for mainly being Ali G but now he takes up a new and promising role as a character from Kazakhstan called "Borat." His role as this character called Borat existed for a short time in his British television show. Now, Sacha Baron Cohen has brought this character into a more public view with his own motion picture.
The character of Borat comes from Kazakhstan. The country is made to look negative with prostitutes, poor people and such. Borat explains this in a documentary-type setting at the beginning of the film. The real action begins when Borat moves to the "US and A." Borat's character is made to look stupid when it comes to interviewing other people in the USA. Even the simplest of tasks set by individuals from the USA can prove difficult for him. The question remains: How much patience will one have with Borat? In fact, many people became irritated by him and used many methods to try and get rid of them. A few ways of getting rid of him consisted of threatening him physically or calling the cops.
You will see at one point where Borat is stopped for no reason by the cops. Throughout the film, many cultural differences are made to be clear. For example - the way we speak, greet and treat people are put to the test. Where as in the USA, it is typical to be polite at the dinner table; in Borat's culture it seems to be typical to talk about sex.
The film is not there to educate. It is there for pure enjoyment and for you to see how one might react to Borat because of him not being American. Throughout you will be wondering if Borat can get away with doing this, if Borat will successfully push someone to their limits and whether he will fulfill his mission on finding Pamela Anderson. It's rude, it's funny and worth watching.
Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002)
Mike Myers does an excellent job once again.
Austin Powers in Goldmember brings back Austin in yet again some pretty funny instances. The opening spoof scene was a great addition to put in which made it at first seem like a high-budget action movie. When the real opening occurs, it once again reminds you that Austin Powers is back and ready for more. The whole dancing routine and the way that Austin does stuff never gets old for me.
Whether it be at the beginning, in the middle or at the end of the film - it leaves you chuckling throughout. The way the characters are stereotyped, dressed and such adds to the humour of Austin Powers in Goldmember. Many of the scenes are easily memorable because of their uniqueness brought to you by Mike Myers.
The film focuses on Goldmember which clearly takes inspiration from Goldfinger from James Bond. The hilarity created from this character and many of the others always wants me to watch this film another time and another time. Each and every scene is carefully done to guarantee you to laugh and although it's bizarre - it certainly works well.
Austin Powers in Goldmember is a great addition to the franchise which brings you some great stars including Mike Myers, Beyonce Knowles, Seth Green, Michael York, Michael Caine and many more. Worth watching for the craziness and laughs.
The Cure (1995)
A very touching movie detailing friendship.
The Cure is a very touching movie based around a young boy called Dexter with AIDS. It seems some people are very prejudice towards his disease; some assuming you can simply catch AIDS by breathing it.
Dexter befriends an older boy called Eric. The difference between Dexter and Eric is that they have very different parents. Eric at first seems to pre-judge him before finally befriending him and realising how Dexter must feel with all the intimidation. It is not taken kind-heartedly though by Eric's mother who seems to be very prejudice towards AIDS. However, as Dexter and Eric build up a strong relationship it puts them in an awkward situation of constantly being bullied by others.
When watching, you'll begin to notice how Eric's mother reactions can be. Some you may often make you think "that's totally out" or "why is she like that?" The thing is, people need to realise AIDS simply isn't transmitted by homosexuals (as assumed by some characters in the movie). In this case, a blood transfusion caused him to get AIDS.
Anyway, being a kid can be great fun as detailed in this movie. Eric and Dexter look out to find "The Cure" they had read about in the local newspaper. As cheesy as it may sound, that's what they try to attempt. They aim to find "The Cure" somehow. It's a summer of a true friendship.
A great movie and recommended for a great telling of friendship.
Home Alone (1990)
Home Alone is a great family movie and probably definitely worth watching during the Christmas period.
Now, kids can be a right pain and Kevin is no exception. Right from the beginning we learn that he can be a nightmare to live with. Who could possibly think such a sweet kid could be a right pain? Since Kevin pushed the limit with his family he was sent to the "third floor". Nobody goes up there but because he pushed his ways too far he was sent there. Anyway, the next morning the family are going on a trip to Paris, France. Sounds nice, huh? Okay, did you check the doors? Check. Did you remember to bring your essentials? Check. Did you remember to bring Kevin? No! How could a mother possibly forget to bring her child with her? Well, she doesn't notice this until she is on the flight. Whoops. Big mistake. Now, Kevin did wish that they would just disappear and he seems to have thought it worked. Can he handle this "home alone" stuff? I don't think so. So, we learn that Kevin thinks he can do everything by himself but deep down he probably wouldn't survive without his family.
Whilst his whole family are in Paris he gets some rather unwanted attention. Two sneaky men have been wanting to rob his house for a long time. Kevin will be as creative as possible to figure out a way to lure those creeps away.
It really goes to show that every kid needs their family around them - especially during Christmas. Kevin finally shows this during the ending when his mother comes back.
A silly episode.
What now? Some ugly-looking Numemon in the sewers and then a big teddy bear called Monzaemon? This episode I enjoyed still but just not as much as the previous episodes. The one main thing I don't get in this episode is the Numemon, these ugly-looking Digimon they are usually found down in the sewers. Well, somehow they ended up going down to these sewers and as well as being a disgusting place to be there's lots more to come.
These Digimon eventually come onto the kids (Numemon). There seem to be so many down here. They seem to be chasing them as well as throwing this pink stuff? It is explained that the Numemon don't like sunlight. So, when the kids do make it to the top, the Numemon go back down.
That's not the end of these Numemon. Later, some other weird objects appear - vending machines. Now, obviously by now we know something is not right. Mimi, as usual can't wait to go see these vending machines. This triggers off more Numemon to come. They can come out now since the clouds seemed to have gone over the sun. Later on, rather than become enemies they help out the kids. What I don't get is why the sun comes back out later. Wouldn't they not be able to stay out? Anyway, without their help they probably wouldn't of been able to defeat Monzaemon. Monzaemon is this big teddy bear who has been made evil by another gear. Eventually, the gear comes out and we have another Digimon back to his normal behaviour.
Overall, a bit weird but funny still. The main thing that was the problem was the Numemon - they still stay out once there is sunlight?
The journey continues...
Once again the kids have to keep on walking across this place. In this episode they come across what seems to be some mechanical factory. It looks normal but is it? Once they enter they come across a new Digimon called Andromon. By now, from following on from the previous episodes you can tell something is bound to be wrong. Well, yes there was and the kids end up running around the whole factory.
Izzy needs some power so his laptop will work. When he finds this electrical room in the factory he is amazed. This guy loves his technology. From this episode I have learnt he likes to get things done by himself and likes to work out complicated puzzles. I also got to know Izzy a bit more because of the flashback it showed. I like the idea of how they put that into the episode.
Digimon may evolve if there partner is in danger but also Izzy found out a way to make them evolve from his laptop. Pretty neat, huh? Yet something else to take into mind.
Overall, another action-packed episode leaving us wondering "what happens next".
Friends will be friends.
Helping one another out really does make a difference in this episode of Digimon. Yet again we see a further evolution to help protect someone if they are in danger.
The kids go trekking across what seems a desert with telephone poles. It's boiling hot and as usual Joe is once again complaining. So, yet another connection with the tram and phone booths are these telephone poles without wires. Weird, huh? If you ever need a friend then it's best to have a Digimon nearby. Without one, you probably wouldn't survive. Thanks to Biyomon, the day is saved. After this fiery Digimon that is in pain is finally defeated we notice a bolt was inside of him. Yet another clue to keep watching the series.
Overall, a good action-packed episode which I very much enjoyed.
Brotherly love and of course another new enemy.
This episode shows the feelings between Matt and TK. Although he does not want to make it obvious that he loves his brother deep down he will continue to but in a way that isn't too revealing. The Digimon eventually work out that he does love his brother although he finds it hard to admit he does. So, I picked up on the emotions that the characters have for each other in this episode.
This journey in this place they are still uncertain of must be making them tired. Like with the phone booths in the previous episode they find another weird object in this place - a tram. Luckily, they can take rest here for a little while. I'm still trying to work out why they have been placed. It leaves me wondering for the next episode.
Later on, there is another fight with a Digimon in the water. This one proved to be tougher than the previous ones. The kids eventually work out how these Digimon evolve into stronger monsters. So, whenever somebody is in danger they will evolve.
Overall, a slow start but still an enjoyable episode.
Another monster to beat, continuing from last episode's cliffhanger.
Now the last episode was mainly about introducing the characters and Digimon. This episode still continues some of that but also shows us that there are more monsters out there.
In this episode I found out that the Digimon need energy from the kids in order to battle. Luckily, they had some food supplies with them. Another monster has to be defeated and the only way they could do this was by the further energy.
This episode also has some funny moments in it too. For example, since the Digimon don't really know much about humans, they didn't know what parents are. "What's a parents?" Overall, a good episode with some good jokes. A lot of laughs were mainly from the character, Joe since he seems to be the complainer of the group.
The first episode proved pretty good.
The first episode of Digimon introduces us to these "digital monsters" and how they work. It works well and settled me into the Digimon series.
This being the first episode of the Digimon series means it is very important. The pilot episode is the key episode that will help you decide whether or not you will continue to like the series. The episode does very well at describing what this series is about and is presented very well.
The main characters are introduced and it tells the story of them at a summer camp. For some reason things go wrong and the climate starts to change. It starts to snow - in the middle of the summer? I like how this tells us how these kids are going to be part of a different world.
When the kids come back into this "new land" they don't recognise a single thing near them. The landscape has changed and there are some cute monsters too. At first everyone seems a bit scared of these monsters but not long after they soon settle in. The digital monsters are introduced like the main characters were. So, we learn about them and what they can do.
There powers are shown off when an evil enemy confronts the kids. With nothing else to do the Digimon must use their powers to defeat it.
Towards the end we are left at a cliffhanger. I like how this episode ended because of this. It sure wanted me to continue watching the series. Great pilot episode!
