“Borat 2” (2020) Movie On Amazon Prime — Some Great Trump Zingers, Very Topical, & The Expected Grossity.
Yes, no mistaking that this is a Borat movie. I was a huge fan of the original Borat movie. I think I might still have the DVD.
I am also an admirer of Sacha Baron Cohen — a fellow Brit. I didn’t particularly like some of his subsequent work, BUT I appreciate that he is awfully clever & talented.
Borat 2 has some SUPERB Donald Trump zingers. Very clever. Delectable.
Shame he couldn’t get this movie out a month earlier. It could have helped with the election. I don’t think it has enough time now.
I am not into grossity &, alas, it is a trademark of the man. Those puerile, intentionally offensive scenes just turn me off. But, you can’t have a Cohen movie without that.
Definitely worth watching. I did some quick research. The CPAC scene was real. Not fake.
Strange. V. strange movie. Really a documentary disguised as a movie. The ‘freewheeling’ & ‘unconventional’ terms used in the movie description are spot on.
You are probably much better watching one of the many — much better — videos on YouTube.
Kind of felt cheated. Didn’t come close to what I was expecting.
I would find it hard to recommend this movie. Sorry!
This review on IMDb.com gets it spot on.
Frybread & diabetes.
To make it worse, there is a segment, early on, when one of the contestants berates two of her coworkers for having an unhealthy lunch & reminds them of THEIR diabetes! Irony. Her doing the shouting — & her doing the frybread cooking — is borderline obese, if NOT outright obese. She probably has diabetes too.
Made me so SAD.
These POOR people.
They lack education, insight, MONEY & resources to understand & control DIABETES. I know. I have spoken to Navajo about it. I have bought them fruit.
It is a HUGE problem & FRYBREAD does NOT help.
That is what makes me so MAD. The last thing these good, decent people need is Frybread.
Very cute. Lavishly produced. Lots of famous faces. Very clever.
Highly recommended. I was mesmerized. Beautiful settings. WOW.
I hadn’t fully realized it, but one way or another I appear to have a fairly decent idea about Marie Curie’s life. That meant that I was familiar with about 50% of what was in this movie. That was the ONLY reason that it did NOT enthrall me more. I just knew the story.
BUT, if you are not familiar with her marvelous story you will enjoy it MUCH MORE.
Well made. They even include little snippets to educate you on the deep science. That was cute.
They also include clips of nuclear events that happened well after her death — including the ‘Chernobyl‘ accident from 1989. One of the clips included a 1961 US nuclear test blast in Nevada. I guess I had forgotten about that. I was 8 & living in Ceylon.
But, GOOD movie. Definitely worth watching. I enjoyed it. So, I do recommend it. Enjoy. SMILE.
Quite the lady in so many different respects. SMILE.
“Ernesto’s Manifesto” (2019) Movie On Amazon Prime — Totally Mindless, Implausible BUT Real Good ‘Feel-Good’.
The cricket was rained off, so I thought I would grab a quick movie for a change of scene. Kind of glad I grabbed this one. Suspected that it would be treacly. It was, but in a decent, semi-good way. Watchable — since it is so mindless & predictable! Implausible beyond the pale. Crazy stupid. But, has a nice feel good touch. Just let it wash over you. Not sure I would explicitly pay to watch this. It was ‘free’ for I on Amazon Prime — & I pay for Amazon Prime not for the free movies. So, I consider the movies free — provided I am not renting one.
So, that is it. Mindless (& stupid) BUT feel-good. So, you decide.
‘Cowboys and Indians: The J.J. Harper Story’ (2003) Movie — Riveting True Story From Canada, #NativeIndianLivesMatter.
Obviously A VERY TRUE, SAD & but Inspirational STORY
Highly, highly TOPICAL.
It is still happening!
So, glad I watched. Riveting.
Wow. Can we get justice like this in the U.S.? We will see.
IF you care about such topical matters you really should watch this movie. I can’t recommend it high enough.
Sad, but inspiring. Very touching.
‘Blow The Man Down’ (2019) Amazon Movie — Decent Story, ‘Poorly’ Produced, ‘David Coffin’ Was A Waste.
It is set in Maine and the description was fairly enticing. It was an ‘OK’ movie. It could have been better.
Having ‘David Coffin‘, THE MAN from Revels (Cambridge) was a treat & a kick. I did NOT know he was going to be in it, but I recognized him as soon as he appeared. Ironically, I am not sure why they had him in the movie! I could be very wrong BUT I am not sure he added anything. His sea shanties, all of which I was familiar with, were incongruous in this movie — in my opinion. They were loud and made the movie seem unnecessarily heavy-handed and dark.
That it was in Maine and that it revolved around lobstering was cute. Liked that.
Story was OK. Not great. Production was BAD. It could have been muck slicker and having David Coffin was a waste! Sorry.
Watch the trailer on YouTube.
I can’t tell you how well this has been put together. Bloody brilliant. I am in awe.
Brand new. This has to set the bar for future documentaries of this genre. Not sure how they got all these people to talk.
Did NOT know this ‘story’. Quite the story.
Very watchable. I have really enjoyed it. They had me hooked 5-minutes into it.
Yes, I recommend it — highly.
