Aye spy upon the horizon !!! A new Pirate film to hit the scene !!!

Aye spy upon the horizon !!! A new Pirate film to hit the scene !!!
Cue the rather dashing and notorious pirate Jack Sparrow...Sorry! Captain Jack Sparrow! To grace our screens once more!! This time alas without the help of his trusty friend Will Turner, Orlando Bloom, and his ever - in - trouble bride Elizabeth Swan, Keira Knightly! However, all is not thrown overboard as Jack is joined by a ramble of new stars !!
Jack appears to be on a mission to find the Fountain of Youth, where film number 3 left us in waiting. On this venture however, there is talk of him having to find the Black Pearl (*Gasps*), a rumour of an on screen romance (*Bigger gasps!*) and ever the introduction of the pirate legend that is Blackbeard!!!! (*HUGE GASP!!*).
One of the stars in the midst is the wonderful Penelope Cruiz, who takes the role of the beautiful Angelica, who lures Jack into a trap, full of action and suspense.
Not only does the bountiful amount of stars drag us to watch this awaited picture, however there is also talk of Mermaids!!! And Zombies !!!!!! the word that immediately comes to my mind is AWESOME !!!
The latest instalment of the piratical series will be hitting our screens hopefully May 20th , which I am sure pirates and pirate lovers everywhere is holding there breathe for!!!

Genie Script :)! feedback would be greatly appreciated !

Hello all bloggers! now then, here is a script I wrote a while ago but I thought it would be pretty good to get some feedback on it. Its a short and (hopefully) funny script. Comments would be greatly appreciated and I hope you enjoy reading it!
from Abbly Bartonia :)!
Scene – In a university student’s room. A student is scene wrapped in a duvet lying on his bed. The curtains are drawn and we see that the clock reads 1.30pm. There is a loud knock on the door.
Jim wriggles around in the duvet. A bin liner falls on his bed and cups fall to the floor. There is a lot of bin liners and mess everywhere.
Jim – Jim isn’t here right now, please leave a message after the tone. TONE!
Mike – ha ha you comic genius. Let me in I would quite like to see my best mate since I haven’t seen you for days.
Jim– the door's open.
Mike enters. He looks around at the mess.
Mike – Wow. This scale of mess almost deserves an award.
Jim – I know. Stop. (Mike stops) Ok. Step over the week old laundry (Mike does so holding his nose) Turn left at the mouldy bin liners. (Mike does so) Step over the rabbit droppings (does so looking confused). Step to the left, then the right and over the mushrooms (Mike does so) and mind out for the mould pots and pans.
Mike finally arrives at the bedside. He picks up the bin liner that fell on Jim.
Jim – SOD OFF! (Pulls covers over his head)
Mike moves a bin liner off a chair and sits down next to the bed.
Jim – What day is it?
Mike – Tuesday.
Jim – What time is it?
Mike – Half one.
Jim- SHIT! (Sits up)
Mike – No point in panicking mate. You have missed the lecture and the seminar.  Steve is NOT happy with you. You have to go see him sometime tomorrow.
Jim – Bugger. This is all I need.
Jim lies back down. Mike picks up pans and throws them to one side of the room, and picks up a weird shaped kettle.
Mike – Jim, What the hell is this?
Jim – (getting up) I dunno, got off a bloke in town. You know the weird guy that sits in doorway of Spoons every so often? Him. He sort of, threw it at me. He mentioned something about the inscription on the side and then screamed about the Romans invading. I didn’t pay that much attention, I had spent the afternoon in the Litten Tree trying to get the bar maids number. I didn’t get it. I was however pretty drunk.
Mike – I can’t read the inscription (spits on the kettle and rubs)
A poof of smoke and suddenly a young girl appear. She is in bright clothes and has a drink in one hand. The two boys stand looking shocked.
Genie – (talking to a wall) And so I said to Shakespeare, Oi mate, you’re bard! Hahaha!!.....oh... wow!! That was weird. One minute having a lovely discussion with the President and now I am here. Where ever here is. (Turns around) Oh hello. Who are you two? I do apologise, my names is Jenny and I am a genie. Crikey this room is filthy!...
Mike – [Interrupting] I’m sorry, but did you just say, Genie?
Genie – Well aren’t you quick. Yes. I am. I am a genie! (A poof of coloured smoke appears from nowhere) And I am at your service. Now are you going to tell me who my new “master” is? Which one of you rubbed the kettle?
Mike – ME!
Jim- My kettle!!
Genie – Great another one of these situations.
Jim – What do you mean?
Genie – Right, here are the rules for you. Rule number one; you get three wishes, and ONLY three wishes. None of this “I want unlimited wishes!” rubbish. Rule number two, I don’t do causing major events e.g. war. And rule number three I can’t make people fall in love. Do we have a deal? (The boys nod) Good. Now here comes the hard part. Right with this situation, since you rubbed the kettle (points at mike) and it belongs to you (points at Jim), you both get one wish each and then a joint wish ok?
Mike – What!! No way! That’s rubbish!
Genie – Hey! I don’t make the rules!
Jim – ok. We will have to make our choices carefully Mike. This is a once in a life time opportunity. We have an actual genie! GENIE! Feels like I am in a bizarre Disney movie. We can’t waste the opportunity we have. We don’t want to make some ridiculous choice like “I wish I had a bacon sandwich”.
A bacon sandwich appears in his mouth interrupting. Jim chokes on the bacon sandwich and spits it out in his hands. He looks shocked.
 Jim- Hang on! That wasn’t my wish!!
Genie – you said the words “I wish I had a bacon sandwich” so; it kinda makes it a wish.
Mike – hahahaha! That’s BRILLAINT! I so wish I could have got that moment on camera ! hahahah!
A camera appears.
Mike – Hang on! That wasn’t my wish either!
Jim – HA! Not so funny now is it? Hmm!
Genie – To late, one wish left lads, what’s it going to be? Actually think carefully this time.
The boys whisper to each other.
Mike – we wish, you would go back into the lamp and stop bugging us.
Genie – That I can do Pleasure meeting you both, see you boys.  
She disappears. The two boys look at each other in disbelief.
Jim – Did that REALLY just happen?
Mike – How much have we had to drink?
Jim – I dunno. But that. Was. Weird.
Mike – Maybe, keep this just between us two, yeah?
Jim – Good plan. People might start to think we have lost the plot.
Mike – Agreed.
Jim – I think maybe would be a good time to get some fresh air. I have been in here long enough.
Jim gets out of bed and they swiftly leave the room.
The End

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (there are spoilers in this !! do not read if you haven't seen the film !!!!)

And here is the second part of my Potter reviewing.... upon seeing the first installment of the last movie, I can safetly say....IT WAS BRILLIANTLY EPICALLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From the beginning of the film you can tell its going to be VERY different from the other Harry Potter films. With the beginning building tension as both Harry and Hermionie leave their homes, and upsettingly, Hermionie has to wipe her parents memory so she never exsisted to them (*sniffle*). It prepares the audience for a tale of sadness and danger. The film is gripping for those who have and haven't read the book (However those who have read it its brilliant when it comes to the detail of the action, it misses out very little!) . It is potentially the most scary of the lot. When the critics have said its the darkest tale of them all....they arent kidding (at one point I screamed....I actually screamed.....whole cinema laughed at me was mortifying!!!). The bond of friendship is pulled to the extreme limits with Harry, Ron and Hermionie, as they are plunged into perill and danger, with unlikely deaths of those close to them and us the audience (*cries*).

I think the most clever part of the whole film, is the presentation of the fairytale story of the Deathly Hallows, when Hermionie reads it out, so everyone knows what the Deathly Hallows are. The story of the Deathly Hallows is shown through a Tim Burton style cartoon, being very visually cleverly developed and an excellent way of displaying the story of the Peverell Brothers. It goes through the story clearly and although its a fairytale, its presents as a very dark more grown up style of fairytale.

I highly reccommend, nay command!!!, everyone to go see it !!!!!!!!!!!! It is truly a great piece a film and it will take you on a very exciting journey !!!!!!

Potters Back !!!

Well, well, well... at long last Potter fans of the world can scream and dust off the wands and pointy hats, because the lastest movie has arrived. Critics are calling it the darkest movie of the lot and audiences have been promised to be given a thrill. Now, being a rather big Potter nerd, I have re-read the seventh book a fair few times during the holidays so I can see how they interpret the book. If they get it right, its going to be a majorly awesomely epic.

The last book The Deathly Hallows is being split into two films, showing that theres going to be the ever immortal yet HIGHLY annoying cliff hanger at the end of the first installment. The wizarding world has become a dark and dangerous place to live in, with Harry, Ron and Hermionie going on a mission to destroy the immortal Lord Voldemort, whilst saving as many people as they can in the mean time. It is truly the ultimate last battle!!! The most unlikely of people come forward as being strong and bold characters, but I'll let you watch the movie or read the book to find out who they are!

Now, I shall be viewing the film this evening, so I think that everyone of you reading this blog should, nay, I command !!! to go out and buy a ticket and watch the movie ! And yes, you might say, you have't seen it, how do you know what it will be like? my view is this, the books are magnificently crafted and the films gives it booming life, the past movies (in my own opinion with an exception of the Order of the Pheonix)  have been truly wondeful and I have high hopes for this lastest film, therefore feel that I can safely assured in saying its fanstastic !!!

I shall give another review once seeing the film!! and I have no doubt it shall be good news! so look out for more Potter-ry goodness!
