Rugby – it was the ref’s fault!
Tennis – Nadal, Federer and Djokovic play rock, paper, scissors to decide who’s winning each tournament!

Golf – without that red golf T-shirt on a sunday…….
F1 – please let me know if it still exists!
Synchronized swimming – sorry, my bad forgot this is a SPORTS review for a second!
Cricket – finally the Aussies don’t look invincible anymore!! I don’t like the state of Test cricket at the moment (too much T20 for my liking!)

Well Jozua Judah has done it again!!!!!! Read the awesome review of the Disney Film African Cats below

 

 

By Jozua Judah

Release Date: 3 August 2011

 

Directed By Alastair Fothergill, Keith Scholey

 

Narrator:

Samual L. Jackson

 

Genre: Wildlife Documentary 

Classification: G

Running Time: 89min

 

Our first review for Isibani is a call to adventure, where strength, agility and calculated risks come together in a stunning display of survival. Not surprising though that African Cats may very well be my first time big screen documentary experience  as I try to recall when last I saw this type of film. The Production house behind the film is Disneynature which sees its 3rd release, narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, following the release of Oceans. It also features a song “The World I Knew” by Season Six American Idol winner Jordin Sparks.

 

Living and breathing in Africa, one can appreciate its splendour afresh and anew with the absolute cinematic grandeur of the grass lands in Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve. The documentary film follows two stories, one of a cheetah called Sita who is raising five cheetah cubs . Then there is Layla, a lioness raising her young cub in a pride who is under pressure from a hostile takeover, the wild life version. Fang, the male lion and protector of Layla’s pride lives one side of the river while Kali, his nemesis lives on the other with his five sons.  Kali is looking for every opportunity to cross this barrier to take over the pride of Fang. In this documentary we see these two worlds collide as cheetah & lioness must pit themselves against natures odds for their own survival and that of their cubs. 

 

This “true life adventure” was shot in real time over two years by directors Alastair Fothergill and  Keith Scholey.  Alastair Fothergill is a director, producer, and writer which is well known for his involvement in wild life TV programs & films. Some of his titles includes films like Earth, The Blue Planet and Life In The Freezer. His counterpart Keith Scholey is also known for his work as producer for nature programs and films such as his involvement in an award winning series called “ The Private Life of Plants”. He is currently the executive producer for a popular TV show called “Weird Nature”. Both of these men bring a  great deal of experience and creativity to the art of wild life documentary filming. In that they achieve a very descent and entertaining cinematic experience drawing you into a story of the life of two very similar but yet different animals.

 

The cinematography (camera & lighting work) in the film was truly something to behold with sunrise and sunsets shots looking truly like a painters brush come to life. Not only will the metro-man find a new motivation to set out into the great outdoors, but the intrepid explores amongst us will thoroughly enjoy this epic film. Samuel L. Jackson does a good job as narrator of the film. Unfortunately, the narration is distracting at times which robs the film of some of its African authenticity, but will definitely appeal to a more Americanised audience.  The story, like so many in Africa is that of perseverance, courage and taking risks in face of overwhelming odds. The face of adventure is calling and African Cats gets a dangerous 8 out of 10. See you at the movies.

The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet in action

The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet has been an exciting product to implement, and is beginning to be used in innovative ways. For example, check out how the Royal Bank of Scotland is leveraging the solution to access to global research and strategy information.

Here are a few of our favorite BlackBerry PlayBook tablet features:

1. Multitasking

Running multiple applications and media, as well as switching seamlessly between them, has never been easier. Not only is the multitasking functionality present in the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, it is also intuitive to use.

2. Adobe® Flash™

I’ve waited a long time for a mobile device that fully supports Adobe Flash in the browser; there were always a few sites that I just couldn’t access on the go due to this often missing feature. (Okay, I admit that I’m an occasional fan of Adobe Flash games too!)

3. HDMI Cable to TV

This is where it gets even more functional and fun – not only can I hook up my BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to a screen to present a slideshow (or to play Need for Speed™ Undercover), it’s in full high definition.

4. BlackBerry® Bridge™

The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet integrates with my email information right away when I hook up the BlackBerry Bridge application with my BlackBerry smartphone – it even integrates past messages!

5. BlackBerry PlayBook tablet apps

There’s nothing like filling up your new mobile device with applications from the BlackBerry App World™ storefront. It still amazes me to see full-screen BlackBerry platform applications running on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet on its high resolution. Apps will always be one of my favorite features, and it’s a feature that keeps getting better and better as more apps are constantly being released.

“From the jocks to the geeks to the band nerds, even the vast world of social media comes with its own stereotypes and teenage angst. Visit the Flowtown store if you would like to purchase a poster of this graphic.”

Why do I love Star Wars so much? Here’s a good reason.

This infograph depicts how impactful this franchise and its makers have been since its conception. Made in 2005, by Wired writer, Michelle Deveraux, its a bit outdated but still the point comes across very well. Read it and see how amazing this franchise is and was and how many of its rivals owe a great thanks to it.

Show Respect!

We here at EHEHEHEH love movies and we have a friend base of film lovers have started to grow. One such friend is Jozua Judah. He has graciously sent us this review to the new superhero film, I Am Number Four.


ByJozua Judah

I Am Number Four

Produced By Michael Bay

Executive Producers: Chris Bender, David Valdes, J.C. Spink , Steven Spielberg

Genre: Sci-fi/Thriller

Classification: PG13

Running Time: 119 min

Movies for teenagers are becoming more frequent. I Am Number Four is the next one in a line of feature films doing the rounds on the big screen lately. The movie was adapted from a novel by Pittacus Lore, a pseudo name for novelists James Frey and Jobie Hughes who wrote the book. It was published by HarperCollins in August 2010 and spent six weeks on the children’s chapter of The New York Times Best Seller list with the rights bought by Dreamworks Pictures in June 2009. So, if your thirteen year old son nags you to go see the film, you know why. For them it’s going to be cool.

Most of these films starts with a lone hero. I Am Number Four is no different. Our hero though is not fighting off vampires or battling the gods for a lighting rod. John (Alex Pettyfer) is running for his life, moving from town to town with his guardian Henri (Timothy Olyphant). Henri is pretending to be John’s father as to give the appearance of a normal human family. If you are aware of the James Bond version of a teenage film, you will know Alex from the British film Stormbreaker. Alongside John’s is his love interest, Sarah (Dianna Agron) which stared in the Glee TV series. As most of these stories go, John is not any typical teenager. He is a unique teenager, an alien none the less from another planet. His people are known as the Loriens. But back to the story, from what is he running? From the Mogadorians, another race of aliens that are hunting John down, who, by the way totally destroyed his planet. John however is not the only teenage boy the Mogadorians are after. There are eight teenage Loriens, who all make up the Garde. You also guessed it, they’re all hiding here on earth since they don’t have a planet of their own. The Garde consists of all the Loriens who have special powers coming from a specific Lorien blood line. That is if they have blood? The eight fledglings is protected by a charm, so they can’t be killed at random or all at once, it must happen in a specific numeric order. This however doesn’t seem to be a problem for their hunters until now. John is number four…

As John and Henri move on to the next town, Henri tries to limit John’s movement from fear of him being discovered, “as not from around here”. John, a typical alien teenager, no different to the ones here on earth, rebels. He decides to go and find some excitement in the new town. Wait for it, he goes to school. The Mogadorians eventually catch up with them causing all sorts of havoc to break loose in the small out of the way town. John decides not to run anymore facing his enemies with the unique abilities he has been given.

With Michael Bay at helm as producer you know the CGI (computer generated imagery) is going to be off the hook, with films like Transformers and Transformers 2 under the belt. Sadly, I Am Number Four’s story itself falls short in a few places with a pretty straight forward plot. One thing you can count on is that teenagers will love the alien creatures in the movie, the good with the bad with the ugly. The fight sequences inside the film are carefully balanced and not too overwhelming to give the audience some time to get to know the individual characters in the story. That being said, the film buffs in today’s audience will get annoyed with the sub plot, love interest high-jacking this type of story again. The theme, love conquers all, still rings true and won’t disappoint the younger crowd. There are no nude scenes and no bad language. All the action makes violence a given but nothing as intense as a Quentin Tarantino movie. Alongside the melodrama that goes with being a teenager, this movie has a more of a serious feel to it. It gets a, out of this world 6.5 out of 10. See you at the movies.
