Go and watch the kiddies film 'Curious George'. I took my cousins aged 10 & 7 to see it and we all ended up in tears at one point! I know it's a cartoon and whatnot, but seriously, it's really cute, has a heartwarming storyline and features some great voices (Dick Van Dyke and Drew Barrymore to name a couple).

Then, go and buy 'Jack Johnson & Friends: Singalongs and Lullabies from the film Curious George'. It's very simple and has some really nice songs on it - We're Going To Be Friends, The 3 R's, Upside Down - that are great to listen to before you go to sleep.

I know I'm 18 but who says I can't enjoy children's films?

Time:07:57 pm

I know right, you all thought Jury of Fury was dead? I guess it was if we're honest, but this is one film I can not pass up reviewing. Down To You almost certainly makes the cut for my top 10 most abysmal movies.Collapse )

Dudes. Recommend a song. What songs have you heard lately that you've fallen in love with?

Mine:

1) I will never see the sun by great lake swimmers.

2) Waterfall by the Stone Roses

3) A lifetime in heat and cold truth by guggenheim grotto. Which you can find here:

For free.

All very mellow-y songs. I like mellow.

What do you like?

Subject:A towel, a cup of tea, and an excellent movie

(x-posted to both my LJ and the PJs Entertainment forum (and I actually wrote it at about 9pm 28/4))

I just got back from seeing the movie. And it was abso-bloody-lutely awesome. As funny as the books. Great casting. Extra bits in the credits that you <b>have</b> to stay for.

I did have a couple of problems with it, mainly with the way I had imagined Zaphod and Marvin and the actual guide, but other than that, it was just too good for words. It also started differently to what I think it should have, but I won't say how because that'll ruin it for everyone.

I honestly don't know how they did it. How they managed to fit most things from the book into 109 minutes. But they did! There were a few things that I think were missed out on, but I suppose that was due to keeping it to a certain time limit, otherwise it would have been an epic!

Every single person for the cast was perfectly suited. Marvin is the cutest paranoid android there ever could be. Completely different to how I had imagined him, but nonetheless, had the emotions perfectly expressed. And also funny as anything. Martin Freeman as Arthur Dent played the character really well. Exactly the way I had imagined.

I think I'm going to have to go see it again, because I'm sure I wasn't able to take in everything. And I thoroughly recommend anyone and everyone go see it even if you haven't read the books.

And one last thing, there has to be a sequel. Or at least, I hope there is. I know when I read the book, I had to start on The Restuarant at the End of the Universe straight away because it did the suspenseful left-hanging thing.

It's a pity I can't say more about it, but I don't want to ruin it for everyone. 10 out of 10!


As for the cinema experience. One lady took a towel with her, and her and the rest of her friends were quite loud during the movie. One even snorted at one stage :P  Some guy behind me kept getting up and leaving and coming back for who knows what reason, but he and his family ended up leaving. (Yeah, I hatehatehate going to the movies and have people disrupt my viewing in some way). I thought there was only going to be me, a family of four and another couple in there, but everyone arrived when the previews were on about 5 minutes before it started, but even so, it wasn't full.

Subject:To join, or not to join
Time:12:03 am
Well hello. I've been tossing up as to whether I should join pretty much since it opened, but I've decided I should. So, the requested introductory post.

Hi, I'm Christie (age is 19 for those who want to know =P). I live in Australia, and due to this, I'm often subjected to having to see a movie months after the rest of the world. But even so, I'm just a poor university student, so I never go see movies anyway. I love all the CGI movies and can't wait for the next two to arrive in cinemas (Pixar's Cars and Dreamwork's (I think) Madagascar). Comedies are my favourite.
As for music, I like most genres. I can't stand country - at all, and rap is a close second. I'm a closet teenybopper and I don't care what other people think of that =P My favourite singer is Sheryl Crow, and my favourite album is Since I Left You by The Avalanches.
Books. I love reading. I don't do it as often as I used to, but it's still a great relaxant. I guess I have a limited reading range because I only tend to read books targeted at the young adult area (I guess that's where they're aimed). I'm not the least bit interested in reading the classics. My favourite author is Nick Earls. I've also recently (well, in the last 2 or 3 years) discovered an author by the name of Kathy Reichs. She writes crime novels, but they aren't really of the whodunnit kind. An excellent author in my opinion. And Tara Moss is the third author that I really love reading books of. My favourite series of books is the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (of which I will be seeing the movie on this coming Thursday!). I unfortunately haven't read Mostly Harmless yet because I haven't bought it yet (I'm one of those people who has to have series of books having the same cover and I don't think it's produced with the same cover as the editions I have). But I do have the illustrated HHGTTG, which is way cool.
Oh yeah, I totally forgot to do TV, so here goes. I actually don't watch a whole lot of TV. I have my favourite shows, and I watch those, but I'm not one to actively watch programs that I'm not interested in. That being said, I'm a big documentary fan and throughout my whole life my family has always watched nature documentaries by David Attenborough. I also like watching semi-autobiographical (I guess?) programs like Long Way to the Top, which was about the Australian music scene. At the moment I'm hooked on Lost. I'm a quiz show junkie and my favourite at the moment is an Aussie music quiz program called Spicks and Specks. No list would be complete without the mandatory Simpsons being on there either.

I'm open to trying new things, and even though I don't read/watch/listen to much, I'll still review what I can.

Anyway, so I've bored you with all that. But that's ok because I've finished =P
