Nice run

Went for a nice jog this morning in some nice soothing light rain. Went up the canal, through town, through university parks which was nice and back home through Norham Gardens. I took it nice and slow. Very good considering I raced yesterday very well. I am generally happy with my running form but can improve.

Red Nose Day



Today is Red Nose Day. I wore a red t-shirt and a red jumper . I donated a total of £1.15 to Comic Relief. My form teacher gave my form class a class detention because we were talking too much in registration. Three people in my class did a sponsored silence and 2 of them had broken it by break, thanks to my class. 2 Pairs of people tied their feet or hands together and stayed like this all of the school day.

First lesson we had drama, kind of boring and the teacher had no Red Nose Day spirit. Second lesson was IT in which our teacher said "if you donate to Comic Relief I will let you have a fun lesson". In Music we listened to pieces of music about trains and then made our own. At lunch, I played football. In science we looked at what electromagnet are used for in everyday life. In history we looked at The Tennis Court Oath, to do with the french revolution.

After school I went to my drum lesson. When I got back I looked at the OxFringe program and only saw one thing that looked interesting. OxFringe is sponsored by The Midlands co-operative which is awesome which means something good that I dont really know what.

S.W.A.T. film review

S.W.A.T. is an very, very, very good film. It is an action film about a S.W.A.T. team and like all action films it is set in LA(Los Angeles, United States). This is a very good film, it is better than James Bond, Mission Impossible, etc, anyway what I'm trying to say it is an awesome film.
It is directed by Clark Johnson and was released in 2003
One of the main characters is played by Samuel L. Jackson, he plays Sgt Hondo(his nickname) who is the leader of the S.W.A.T. team. He plays this role very well and it is nice to see Samuel L. J playing when he was a bit younger. Another of the main characters is Jim Street played by Colin Farrell, he is kind of the big main character as he is the most seen character in the whole film.

The film starts with Street and his partner helping to stop a hostage situation, his partner shoots a hostage by mistake but to help the hostage, he gets fired. Street gets demoted to cleaning boots and repairing guns. Sgt Hondo is commanded to contsruct another S.W.A.T. team. Street is his driver and eventually Hondo asks him to join the team. Street grudgingly accepts.
The team qualify to become a proper S.W.A.T. team. The team eventually are set a big challenge in which they shoot lots of bad guys and cool stuff like that.

I really think you should watch this film if you like action films or even it is just an awesome film.
It doesnt seem to out of date as it was released in 2003. I would give it 10/10.

Prince of Egypt

I watched this film in religous studies in school. It is about the story of Moses with a bit of a tweak. At the start it says
"this is a biblical story that can be found in the bible" duh!. Of course it is in the bible anyway also
"James Bond is a biblical character that can be found in the bible in Timothy 3:14." James Bond is probably more realistic than the bible and a lot better read(or watch)
Right onto the actual film, well it is a film about Moses, I already said and how he grows up in Egypt as Pharoah's son, then he runs away after killing a bad guy. There are some bits in the film where I am pretty sure they wouldn't be in the bible.
I would advise this as a film for kids under the age of 10 to watch as it is educationl ish and child friendly.
6/10

Office Space film review

Office Space is meant to be a comedy about a guy who goes to work at a place called Initech and he gets bored of his job. He therefor tries to get fired. I wont tell you what happens next because it would spoil the film. It isnt laugh out loud comedy, it makes you smile from time to time.

The film was made in 1999 and is set around just before this time. Peter Gibbons who is the main character is played by Ron Livingston and I think he acted the part very well. All of the acting seemed to be good and I would like to point out Stephen Root played a very good part for Milton Waddams who is a tubby Initech empoyee who mumbles a lot and no one really ever listens to him.

Overall it is an ok film, it isnt bad but neither is it wonderful. I might say a lot of films are ok, well that is ok because if a film is good enough to be on DVD or in cinema, then it is bound to be okish depending on what type of film you like and dislike. It is a good friday night film to ust sit down and watch, because it is comedy with a quite simple plot.

The blog isnt dead

The blog isn't dead. I know this might not be true and I may never post to this again but I will say this anyway.

This morning I am up at this early hour(6am) to get ready to depart for the national inter-counties cross-country race in Nottingham. I will hopefully see Mo Farah run. When I get back I will try to meet up with the local OxClean team and help my community by cleaning up my already clean streets.

I may get back to publishing film reviews but, I don't know whether I will again. This blog will not die.
