The 90's

So I'm doing an assignment on media from the 90's.Went on the Internet and pulled up some familiar photos from my fav shows from that time. Been on a nostalgic kinda phase lately and I wanna share the photos with you.

I used to be able to recite the entire Pokemon rap

This was such a kick ass series!

No matter how hard I tried, I could never get Teddymon. It was always Numemons

Melissa Joan Hart- Love of my life!

Lori Beth Denberg totally ruled this show!

Awww here goes!

The good ole days when Britney wasn't crazy

Rocko's Modern Life!

Mine still works, thank you very much

Carmen San Diego was hella sexy!

Can't remember what's the name of this show. I think it's Arthur

A cartoon series that's even better than the actual movies

Long live that Michael Jackson song!

Hip Ha Hoo!

Classic Nickelodeon!

Stupid educational show

What? It's all fake?!

The Pink Ranger and the White Ranger were always meant to be together

This was one of my favorite shows as a kid. Spellbinder! And that Ashka lady is still a hardcore bitch


I'll be you're dream, I'll be you're wish, I'll be you're fantasy...

LuLu..... whistle whistle whistle

My Tamagochi pet never lived more than a week.

I miss the 90's!

Fitna: Review

Okay this isn't much of a review, I just felt like this is something that i really need to talk about.
I'm sure everyone's heard of the movie by now. Fitna is a 15 minute film that's been circulating the Internet talking about how cruel Muslims are and how they are behind every terrorist attack because Allah and the Quran told them so.
Fitna was made by Geert Wilders, a Dutch politician from what I've read. What the hell is this guy's problem? Seriously, which Muslim lady broke you're heart till you became crazy enough to make this movie?
Throughout the film, he shows passages from the Quran that tells Muslims to kill non-Muslims and cause all kinds of terror and stuff like that. Seriously, how dumb does this guy think we are? Does he really expect me to believe his translations completely? The guy can't even spell FITNAH correctly. And I really LOL'd when he tried associating every terrorist act to Muslims. FYI Geert, there is a big difference between terrorists and Muslims. Just because some terrorists are Muslims doesn't mean they all are like that. it's like saying all Chinese are cheapskates just because I am.
But this movie was kinda good in a sense cause it makes us question whether or not what Geert says is really true. So yeah I was kinda interested in that so I went to my old BM teacher's place and read the Quran with her translation. Guess what. Everything Geert Wilders said was shit.
Which brings me to another point. Yes you bloody hypocrite Christians from my youth group. I read the Quran. So what? How does that make me a sinner? What's wrong if a Christian just wants to gain a bit of knowledge about other religions? You know what the really funny part is? These motherfuckers actually asked me to repent for reading the Quran.
 This film and the guys I mentioned above is the disgusting minority of intolerance that make getting along with other people so difficult.

RATING: 0/10

The Water Horse Legend of the Deep: Review

Water Horse is basically a movie about the Loch Ness Monster and the story behind the famous Loch Ness picture. Which I totally loved because some time when I was a kid, I was in this phase where I read and watched everything I could about the Monster.And I still think it's real.
The film is about a boy named Angus who finds a weird looking egg by a lake which will soon hatch into the Loch Ness Monster. This is the kind of Spielberg film where the monster is our friend like E.T instead of War of the Worlds.
So Angus takes care of this cute little monster as it grows bigger and bigger and so does their friendship. But when rumors get out that there is some monster in the lake, their friendship is put through the ultimate test which may jeopardize both their lives.
Water Horse is a fine family film that is worth taking the kids to see more than once. I found it rally enjoyable and it's a great movie to introduce kids to the folklore of the Loch Ness Monster.
The special effects of the film is really great. The little monster is one of the cutest things I ever saw but when it grows big, it ain't that cute no more. The cinematography of the Scottish lakes and mountains are really magnificent and with such a great bagpipe score, it's hard not to get into the moments of the film.
I didn't like the boy who played Angus though but what more can you really expect from young child actors. I just wished they had 11 year old Christian Bale from Empire of the Sun playing Angus. That would have been awesome. The other actors were okay I guess. Not much done ere that is worth mentioning over.
The film does feel like a ripoff of Free Willy. Boy meets monster, boy is scared of monster, monster and boy becomes friends, boy tries hiding monster through some funny scenes, monster get threatened by adults who have no soul, boy risks his life for monster, monster eventually escapes and boy is happy and sad.
Even the big ending of the film is a complete copy of the jumping over the net sequence in Free Willy, which I thought was done much better in this movie cause of the special effects.
Great film, great portrayal of the Loch Ness Monster, funny and charming for the most parts, incredibly scary as well. Check this out if you have the time.

RATING: 7/10
