March of the Penguins. A Cock and Bull Story.

March of the Penguins - it's flipping awesome. Not awesome like the Matrix, but like a David Attenborough documentary on steroids, with Morgan Freeman as the voiceover. The DVD contains two extra documentaries about how they filmed it, both very interesting / entertaining. I managed to watch the film a second time and still really enjoyed watching it. It's fairly short for a film at 1hour 15minutes but slightly longer than the average animal documentary. Some of the extra documentaries contain footage of the pengiuns from different colonies, and you wonder why they didn't contain it in the film.

A Cock and Bull Story Starring Steve Coogan - has some very funny moments where they take the mickey out of Alan Partridge. Most of the people I was watching it with didn't really get the parallels between the film inside the film, and the "real world" modern day version of it, but did after explaining it. I think it's one of those films where a brief familiarity with the book is useful, or preferably a second viewing of the film. It's a film where you will probably need to pay attention while watching it.

Indigo Drink - Energy that's a little bit fruity.

Apparently it's an energising Peach and Lemon fruit juice drink with Guarana, Ginseng and Caffiene, however, it seems to just taste purple and sugary to me. Maybe there's a hint, a slight tiny hint of Peach in there? Contains Water, Glucose Fructose Syrup, Fruit juices (10%), Sugar, Taurine, Flavourings (Guarana, Ginseng, Peach, Caffiene), Salt!. And 25mg or caffiene / 100mls! Although this is around the same as instant coffee , so presumably nothing to worry about.
