Crop And Save
One of Jet Li's best...
I'm no good at commenting on films, but i liked this film so much that it deserves to be commented on.
The story centres around Danny (Jet Li) who's basically the muscle behind gangster Bart (Hoskins), helping him to get money by beating up people who don't pay up.
During his typical day, Danny befriends a blind piano tuner (Freeman)... and I shall say no more, as I don't want to spoil the story.
Jet Li is at his best, not only for martial arts ability, but with his acting. This film's more of a drama film than action and martial arts, but the blend worked well in my opinion.
That is all.
A most excellent film... *air guitar* (spoilers Here)
This film is about a couple of dudes (Bill And Ted, from the film's title) who, in order to preserve the future as it's known, must pass their oral history report with an A due to doing quite badly constantly throughout the year.
Now, getting complicated here, if they fail the report, they both flunk high school, Ted will get sent to military school, and so Bill And Ted's rather pants band Wyld Stallions will be no more, bogus...
Now, if their band is no more, then their music (which is really important in preserving peace and stuff) won't exist, and thus the future won't be as such an excellent place as it is. So, Rufus, some dude from the future, has been sent back 700 years (to 1988) to aid them in passing their history report, through the use of a time machine.
If you like 80's rock bands, this is a film for you, as plenty are mentioned (with a rather excellent jam from Joe Satriani at the end of the film), with Iron Maiden and Van Halen to name a few

Top Gear (2002)
Best Car programme ever!
If you like cars, then this programme is just simply amazing. Unlike most programmes that are in this genre, the programme has survived a beyond 20 years at the top, and not many programmes come close. 5th Gear on five does come close, but it just doesn't have the heart or the dedication that Top Gear does.
While the people on 5th Gear only talk about cars, the Top Gear crew talk about everything that is to do with cars, and not just the cars themselves. For example, they have "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" where a celebrity goes round their track to see how fast they are. And once, they decided to test the Toyota Pickup's claim of being the "the toughest car on the road" by basically ramming it into stuff, and putting it on a building that got demolished etc. and it still actually run. They also once tested if you can run your diesel car off of Vegetable Oil (you can, although your exhaust smells like a bag of chips).
Overall, this programme's great and a show you must fit into your weekly schedule, gets 10/10
