“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.

Well given all the leaks there are NO surprises. Looks a nice watch. I am hoping that my friends at ‘Heart Rate Monitors USA‘ (HRM USA) will send me one shortly for evaluation. I will let you know. Check out the videos. They are GOOD.

“Tesla” (2020) Movie On Amazon Prime — Glorified Rather Poor Documentary; At Best Just For Buffs.

by Anura Guruge

Click for IMDb.com listing.


YouTube trailer


NOT to be confused with ‘Current War‘. That wasn’t stellar BUT much better than this. I am glad I had seen ‘Current War‘ because it filled in many of the gaps that this movie overlooks.

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.

YouTube Free ‘Audio Library’ — A Useful Resource.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.



Real, real useful when you are looking for royalty-free, no-copyright background soundtracks for videos you want to post on YouTube — like the one I did earlier today (above ⇑ ⇑ ⇑).

I kind of stumbled upon it online.

Easy enough to find. Just Google “YouTube Audio Library” or you can find it in YOUR YouTube Studio (i.e., under your YouTube account).

You can freely download the track then embed it in the video.

Just wanted to make sure YOU knew about it. Very handy. I know I will be going back to it.

“More Than Frybread” (2011) Movie On Amazon Prime — Cruel, INSULTING Satire; Made Me Sad & MAD.

by Anura Guruge



Click for Amazon Prime Video listing.


Click for IMDb.com listing.


YouTube trailer


Why?

Because diabetes in endemic among the Native Indians in Arizona; with at least 20% of my beloved Navajo suffering from diabetes — with another 75,000 (minimum) suspected of being pre-diabetic.

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.

So, SAD.

“Knives Out” (2019) Movie On Amazon Prime — Masterful; Outdoes Agatha Christie!

by Anura Guruge



Click image to access IMDb.com listing.


For Amazon Prime listing.


YouTube trailer


If you like ‘Agatha Christie‘ you will love this — and it outdoes Agatha. One can kind of say modern-day Agatha, with more cleverness.

Very cute. Lavishly produced. Lots of famous faces. Very clever.

Highly recommended. I was mesmerized. Beautiful settings. WOW.

“Radioactive” (2019) ‘Marie Curie’ Movie On Amazon Prime — Good, Quite Good BUT Not That Radiant.

by Anura Guruge



Click image to access IMDb.com listing.


YouTube trailer


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’.

by Anura Guruge



Click image to access IMDb.com listing.


YouTube trailer


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.

by Anura Guruge

YouTube.


Obviously A VERY TRUE, SAD & but Inspirational STORY
from Canada.

Highly, highly TOPICAL.

It is still happening!

SAD.

#NativeIndianLivesMatter


Click to ENLARGE & read here. Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Joseph_Harper


It was on Amazon Prime. I had no idea what it was about — or that it was a LANDMARK true story. Title & synopsis looked interesting.

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.
