Movie Review: Happy Feet

From Spastics Society of Karnataka Recreation club we all went to movie Happy Feet today.

Its a wonderful movie and one of the very good ones i have seen ever. The imagination of the animators will always bring a smile (an expression of wonder) in your face when you are watching the movie. With the first half filled with loads of fun, the second part takes a more serious turn where it appeals to human a concern for nature and shows the damage are doing. While watching the movie, you will being to show a lot of concern for mumble, the protognist, and wish him that he succeeds in his mission which you have begun to appreciate.

The movie has a star studded voice cast and the animation is just amazing! Kudoes to the australian team which worked on that.

Everyone of us who went, tried the tap dance at the end of happy feet.

Had a good time.

btw, I got into a habit of reading wikipedia article on the movie after I watch any movie. They provide a lot of interesting information and trivia.

We were discussing that LoveLace is voiced by Robbin Williams, but Ramon is also Robbin Williams. And mumble is Elijah Wood ( Frodo in LoTR), Ramya had forgot his name but she pointed out that its main character from LoTR. The group 4 fun-loving group of small penguins who call themselves amigos in the movie is a category called Adelie. Mumble and others are Emperor penguins and emperor penguins in reality get together with their soul mates using songs only! :-) The movie is decided to Steve Irvin.

Happy feet is another good one from Australia.

The Adventures of Tintin

The Adventures of Tintin was the Wikipedia Featured Article on January 5th. Dont miss reading that article. Its well researched and provides many interesting details to fans Tintin all over the world. Few things which I liked and noted:

The comic strip series has long been admired for its clean, expressive drawings in Hergé's signature ligne claire style.

...

On June 1, 2006, the Dalai Lama bestowed the International Campaign for Tibet's Light of Truth award upon the character of Tintin, along with South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu.The award was in recognition of Hergé's book Tintin in Tibet, which the Executive Director of ICT Europe Tsering Jampa noted was "(f)or many ... their introduction to the awe-inspiring landscape and culture of Tibet".Accepting on behalf of the Hergé Foundation, Hergé's widow Fanny Rodwell declared: "We never thought that this story of friendship would have a resonance more than 40 years later".

...

Charles de Gaulle once said "My only international rival is Tintin."

Neenas Marriage, Cochin Trip and Bannerghatta NP Visit.

Austin and I went to cochin to attend Neena Marriage. It was one of

shortest marriages I have ever seen. The entire marriage ceremony took

just 30 minutes to complete. Am seeing a Malayam marriage for the first

time.

Then we went to the Cochin Harbour to spend time. At cochin, discovered

that they use Boats as a mode of "public transport"! Thats interesting!.

Back to Bangalore and this weekend, I visited Banerghatta National park

with Vaishnavi, Shiva and Dad. Vaishnavi wanted to see the new Butterfly

park opened at BNP,but after the Grand Safari, Zoo visit when we went to

the Butterfly park, it was already 5:30 PM and it got closed. Next time

we would be going to see the butterfly park exclusively.

I was able to catch some great snaps of tigers during the Grand Safari.

The Cab Driver helped me, and some of them he himself captured. I paid

him Rs.10/- at the end for this extra service. :-) Well,I did not quite

like it as I had plans to improve my photography skills with some

wildshooting.

Reviews

I watched The Departed and I liked it. Its a very good movie, a good story and very well directed. It might keep you at the edge of the seat while you are watching the movie. The actors Matt Damon, Leonardo Di Caprio and others have done some "fucking" good job. Well, you are going to hear that 'F' word at aleast a 100 times in that movie, but you wont mind it. The movie is kind of chase, a rat is implanted at both sides (a gang and police) and they try to find out who is the rat, while both the rats are very clever.

FOSS.IN

Visited FOSS.IN today. Well, I was bit depressed at quality of talks going down. Few were good, I enjoyed bluesmoon talk and the intro by Suparna was ok. But rest all were Bullshit!

Atul Chitnis, if I were you, I would just pick quality speakers and fit only so much that as the quality speakers would occupy ( One day/Two days). I would not let go quality in favor of 'lets do grand' things et al. But, hey you are doing a fanastic job (Few quality talks spread over 3 days) for the minor amount you are collecting frm the delegates.

Kudoes, keep going, but check for quality now and then.
