The greatest spy the world has ever known returns for yet another
adventure. Once again the British secret service has to save the world
from certain chaos and destruction and only one man is good enough for
the job, that man is 'Bondâ€¦James Bond'. We all know the format, but we
love it. The title is 'The World is Not Enough', and is the final Bond
film of the twentieth century, finishing the millennium with the usual
mix of guns, girls and gadgets.
The film utilises exotic locations around the world and yet manages to
make London look good. The Dome at the time of filming was innovative
and hadn't yet been reduced to a joke by the general public. The sets
created at Pinewood studios look realistic and threatening and fit in
well with the real locations. Green screen scenes have been added to
allow extremely daring stunts and inaccessible locations to be
featured in the film.
The plot is fairly simple and starts with the death of Sir Robert
King, the owner of an oil empire. His daughter Electra King inherits
the family business. The villain Renard shows great interest in
Electra and her inheritance. James Bond is sent to protect her from a
possible attempt on her life. It soon becomes apparent to Bond that
Electra and Renard are partners and they had planned the death of her
They plan to detonate a nuclear bomb inside the reactor of a submarine
near to the city of Istanbul. This will stop the shipment of oil to
other countries and so Electras' company will be the only source of
oil as she ships it overland by pipeline. Her company will be able to
charge exorbitant prices. I...

... Apted obtained realistic reactions from the wardens by failing
to inform the actors portraying them, that they were to be soaked.
This scene is very effective as it adds light relief from the intense
chase scene. The quest by the director to achieve a successful
combination of comedy and action greatly impressed me.
Like all the previous Bond films, this will very easily recoup the
millions of pounds and dollars invested in the making of this feature
film. Money will also be generated from 'product placements'.
Multinational companies pay the film companies for their products to
be featured as they will be seen world-wide, this is a clever way of
advertising. A Bond film is certain to be an economic success.
Prepare to enter the fantasy world of Bondâ€¦James Bond. Sit back, shake
your Vodka Martini, sip and ENJOY!

- In Roland Emmerich’s 2009 disaster movie ‘2012’ the earth is sent into a geological and meteorological super-disaster based on the 2012 phenomenon and the Mayan calendar myth. This involves shifting in the earth’s plate tectonics, the total collapse of L.A, destruction of famous landmarks and worldwide flooding. Due to a lucky break three massive arks were being secretly built in China for 3 years under the jurisdiction of the highest powers in the world.

- It seems it is unusual for a woman to enjoy this type of movie as the violence is extreme; however, when that violence is based on true events and is essential to the growth of the character it becomes easier to accept. The fighting portrayed in this movie falls into that category; it is something that young people often become involved in to demonstrate their power and it can only be hoped that they learn early enough that there is a better way to stand your ground and prove your worth. Director Lexi Alexander’s Green Street Hooligans begins with a brawl in the London underground but quickly cuts to Matt Buckner (Elijah Wood), a journalism student at Harvard, clearing out his dorm room; he...

- Film Review of Saving Private Ryan A slow, sombre opening to "Saving Private Ryan" leads you to believe that this film will be like any other war film. American idealism, German hatred, a few scattered gunshots, and a trickle of German blood is what any film fan would expect of an American war film, and this film certainly does lead you to believe that in the first opening scenes. Instead, you are surprised to find yourself landed back into 1944, amongst the diffident soldiers who have been thrust against their will into the new and terrifying world of combat....

The dance is a journey; one that brings two often very different people together. For that brief time that the two are dancing they act as one person, laying all differences aside....

- Performance Review The 1995 release of the film ‘Clueless’, based on Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’, saw a new trend emerge in Hollywood. By adapting classic literary texts into modern day ‘Teen Dramas’, the film industry and those working in education may argue that such films allow youngsters an insight into plays and novels written hundreds of years ago. In effect, the work of Shakespeare and others is made accessible to the young, and in a world where reading is now perhaps considered secondary, many may well relish the fact that classic stories are still being presented and enjoyed in this ever evolving and advancing society....
