I went to see a different type of movie today (cheap Tuesday!).  'March of the Penguins' is a documentary about the Emperor penguins journey of life and love. It follows their journey to find a mate, and survive over the winter of Antartica to protect and care for their young.  Amazing photography, and I learnt something new about this amazing bird. March of the Penguins.

There were lots of interesting facts that I didn't know and of course the 'cute baby penguins' shots and a few touches of humour rounded off the movie well.  If you would like, check out the official web site link above (it might take a short while to load up).  I can definitely recommend this movie for everyone.

I'm Excited!!

Received the first 4 movies from Bigpond Movies.  I have joined up for a 1 month free trial.  You just need to join up with Big Pond Movies and then make some movies selections.  Within 2 days (very impressed) they send out the DVDs in a reply paid package.  When you return them, then you get another.

Have put in a few reservations as well as a buffer of new movie selection.

For this weekend, we have King Kong, Harry Potter and Batman.  No real culture in there, going for the entertainment value only for the first few.  If you come across any good movies, or anything you think is worth a look, drop me a line, cause I will be doing regular movie preview for those who are interested..

PS – the service costs after the first month trial, but different plans are available at very reasonable prices

To finish off my Easter holidays today, I decided to go to the movies.  Having seen the trailer for this movie and then on recommendation from dad, I decided to go and see the 'World's Fastest Indian'.  Anthony Hopkins (always a favourite of mine) played Burt Munro, a New Zealander (from Invercargill) -or as Burt says, sometimes I spell it Invercargil, with one l… to save ink. 🙂 Burt set off from NZ to Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah and with the odds well and truly stacked against him, he sets a new land speed record in his classic (homemade) Indian motorcyle.  This in 1967 and the record still stands!  Great story, great characters and I really enjoyed this movie – can definitely recommend.
