King Kong, Movie Review

Posted in Uncategorized by wink on December 26, 2005

Well my impressions of the movie in succession order are;
snore, hmm, argh, arrrrgh, oh, awh, sniff, and boo hoo hoo.
I quite liked the movie, a great 3 hour mix of thrilling excitement and drama. If the trailers arent motivating you to watch the movie, here’s a short as possible summary of the story.

A few decades ago, just after the completion of the empire state building in new york, innocent, desperately in need of a job and poverty-driven Anna, also a size 4 actress, after a few bit of lies and tricks ended up acting opposite a very famous heroin actor on a disguised wild animal capture/almost pirate-like ship. She ended up falling for the dashing script writer(Adrian Brody/academy award’s best actress basher). With the help of the cunning, filming obsessed director, their ship arrived at an unchartered island, which was seriously creepy from its cliffs fencing it to the ugly natives…and the creatures in its forests. Well, the cute blonde was offered as a sacrifice to the giant gorilla by the natives, this involved a lot of lava displays, and of course a lot of screaming of the blonde, actually, she screamed quite a deal in the movie. Well, the ape played her like a doll and took a liking to her dancing around and juggling. Well, the search party, lead of course, by lover boy met monstrous creatures in the forest, including giant mossies, crawling bugs, brain-sucking worms and Dinosuars! A lot of people got squashed and eaten. On the other end of the forest, the ape fought off 3 dinosaurs to save blondie, after which she started to feel for the ape. The happy moment was ended by lover boy rescuing her and the ape pursuing after them. The survivors of the party used chloroform on the ape to put him to sleep and somehow took him back to New York for display to its upper class. Blondie couldnt stand the cruelty and escaped the press and pratically disappeared from the survivors of the trip. Eventually, the ape broke away from its chains and started destroying half the city while searching for his blonde babe. The couple found each other in the end and went skating on ice and climbed the empire state building. The ape fought some aircraft sent by the military to put it down while also keeping this blonde from danger. Of course, on the end, it died and made its famous fall off the building, leaving his blondie to cry in the arms in the arms of lover boy.

Hey, trust that Peter Jackson is an academy award winning director, and he makes magnificent movies. King Kong is really a masterpiece and should be at the top of everyone’s must-see movie list.


The Story Of Vegetable Oil

Posted in Uncategorized by wink on December 26, 2005

First of all, Vege oil is a type of Fat. But hey, if you happen to be on a diet I reccomand vege oils and their products like margarine which your body can digest better rather than animal oil and their products like lard, cream, cheese or butter. Plus they are healthier for you.
-Fats/triglycerides are polymers(large compounds made of smaller, similar molecules) of molecules of glycerine and fatty acids.

Vege oils are extracted from parts of plants- seeds, leaves, flowers. Most common are seeds, like sesame, sunflower, cotton, coconut. You can do a little extraction of oil yourself by heating/toasting fresh samples of some of the above seeds in a dry pan on low flame.
Vege oils have many uses – cooking oil
– fuel for vehicles, seriously
– other food stuff like margarine, salad oil
– soap, cosmestics etc.

Vege oil are becoming more popular in industries because they are quite harmless on environment(compared to crude oils) and are biodegradable. They can be used as electrical insulators and fuel for diesel engines.
-Actually, Rudolf Diesel, the inventor of the diesel engine(and nearlly got himself killed making it) actually used peanut oil as fuel.

Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire, Review

Posted in Uncategorized by wink on December 2, 2005

This movie followed the general plot from the book. I think HP book fans will like it more than the third movie. The scenes were very exciting and fast.
The first scene, Harry’s dream was very well acted out.
The task with the hungarian horntail dragon will keep you on your toes, but it was really silly when the dragon climbed around the tower to get to Harry, as if its afraid of heights and couldn’t fly around it.
The second task, in the lake was also realy cool but instead of Winky, Neville gave Harry the gillyweed and made the scene more funny.

All the young actors were cute and played their roles really well.
However, the characterization of some characters and some scenes were a bit disappointing.
– In the movie, Dumbledore was a bit too rough on Harry and acted too authoritative than wise and gentle, as according to the book.
– Hermione looked really pretty especially at the Yule Ball, but at other times, could you say, she looked a bit too pretty. She didn’t even have bushy hair!
– I was a bit disappointed with how Voldemort turned out, I expected him to be taller at least, and maybe uglier.
– The maze for the third task was way too easy, there were only creeping plants instead of boggart(disguised as dementor), giant spider and sphinx.

Well, overall, I really liked this movie, especially in contrast to the third movie. Like every HP fan, I’d recommend you guys to buy the DVD so you can watch it over and over again.
