Bikram – Yogi, Guru, Predator, is a new Netflix documentary about Bikram Choudhury, the founder of Bikram yoaga.

Directed by Eva Orner Bikram – Yogi, Guru, Predator traces Choudhury’s rise from in the 1970s to his his disgrace in more recent years…

Furthering my understanding of people who have an obsessive desire for power, a.k.a. megalomaniacs; that’s the reason I’m drawn to this one.

3022 (2019): New Trailer From Omar Epps, Kate Walsh, Miranda Cosgrove…

Omar Epps, Kate Walsh and Miranda Cosgrove are the stars of new sci-fi movie 3022

Directed by John Suits 3022 is the story of a group of astronauts who are in deep space when they awake to find that Earth has suffered an extinction level event…

I can’t even imagine the stress of seeing our planet come to such a disastrous end.

Hopefully this will be well executed and maybe the story will comfort me with a twist along the lines of, ‘it was all a dream.‘ or perhaps an elaborate science experiment.

I’m very liking asking for too much but wouldn’t it be interesting to be shown what life may look like on our planet in 3022, before the explosion?

Enver Gjokaj, Haaz Sleiman, Angus MacFayden and Jorja Fox also star.

HOLIDAY IN THE WILD (2019): The Things I Liked…

Holiday In The Wild is a fairly enjoyable film focused on the drama / romance between an elephant conservationist named Derek (Rob Lowe), and Kate (Kristin Davis), a newly jilted woman who meet for the first time while in Zambia, Africa.

Well acted and shot, I enjoyed the beautiful footage of Zambia and its majestic animals – mainly the elephants. All the festive cheer was also very welcome; especially since I’ve been in the mood for Christmas for several weeks now.

I’d say that ‘easy viewing’ is definitely the phrase for director Ernie Barbarash’s movie. I had fun even though perhaps unsurprisingly, near the start of the film I couldn’t stop seeing Davis’s Kate as the most famous character she’s ever played. None other than Charlotte York of HBO’s Sex And The City, of course. As a Charlotte fan, I can’t say that I was too mad about that.

Watch Holiday In The Wild for that easy viewing, ‘Christmassy’ vibe – set in Zambia and with Elephants!

Lastly, let me know if you too found yourself really appreciating how good a son the character played by John Owen Lowe appeared to be.

THE INVISIBLE MAN (2019): New Trailer From Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Aldis Hodge…

Directed by Leigh Whannell, and based on the novel of the same name by H.G. Wells, The Invisible Man stars Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge and Oliver Jackson-Cohen in a new sci-fi / horror / thriller.

Moss plays Cecelia who has the near impossible task of proving that she’s being hunted by someone no one can see. That someone just happens to be her very abusive ex…

I’m really quite horrified by this story. I know it’ll be well acted and I imagine Cecelia will get her vengeance. She better!

I just can’t wait to see how well the special effects are executed. I haven’t read the book so I don’t know if the invisibility ‘science’ will be explained…

Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer, Benedict Hardie, Sam Smith, Amali Golden, Anthony Brandon Wong, Zara Michales and Bianca Pomponio also star.

The Invisible Man Release Dates: February 28th, 2020 (US & UK)…

Starring  Vanessa Hudgens, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Josh Whitehouse, A Knight Before Christmas is the story of a medieval English knight who is magically transported to the present day…

Will this be the best Christmas movie released this year? Probably not. I’m really most interested in the scenes of Christmas, to be perfectly honest. I’m also a little bit curious about the film’s classification as a ‘comedy.’ Who knows, maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Directed by Monika Mitchell; Harry Jarvis, Ella Kenion, Jacob Soley, Mimi Gianopulos, Shanice Johnson, Simon Webster, Isabelle Franca and Telysa Chandler also star.

SOUL (2020): New Trailer From Tina Fey, Jamie Foxx, John Ratzenberger…

Soul is the latest animated adventure from Disney Pixar starring Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey and John Ratzenberger.

From directors  Pete Docter and Kemp Powers, Foxx plays Joe Gardner, a musician who has lost his passion for music. Joe is transported out of his body and must find his way back, with the help of an infant soul learning about herself…

Before reading the synopsis, I watched the trailer and by the end all that came out of my mouth was ‘Huh?

Now, after paying closer attention to the clues, Joe is very likely in between life and death. It looks like this will be another clever and especially moving Pixar movie and I’m definitely OK with that.

Daveed Diggs, Phylicia Rashad, and Ahmir-Khalib Thompson also star

DANCING WITH THE BIRDS (2019): The Stunning Birds In Netflix Birds Of Paradise Documentary…

Having recently seen Netflix’s Stephen Fry narrated birds of paradise documentary Dancing With The Birds, I’ve found that I still haven’t quite moved on from the stunning images and ‘birds of paradise dance moves’ featured in the film.

Fashion, dance, fashion, reproduction, fashion, cockroach, FASHION and big juicy tropical fruits’.

These are just some of the words that came to mind as the film played. Why, or why have I mentioned fashion so many times? That’ll become very obvious when you look at the following images…

Sequins baby! Do you see those beautiful ‘sequins’ on the neck of the Carola’s Parotia? A.k.a the most talented dancer of them all – in my humble opinion. Dancing so tirelessly and with such focus and dedication. After a little while, you may forget his name but his moves and that ‘sequinned neck furniture’ will likely stay with you.

It’s no wonder I loved yellow and red so much as a little girl. Here we have what is probably the most colourful bird of them all; the Guianan Cock of the Rock. Their communal mating rituals were some of the most amusing to watch, thanks in part to Fry’s humorous narration.

Let’s not forget the female Guianan Cock of the Rock. Definitely the female that stood out most for me. And, is it just me or is the word ‘chic’ jumping out at you too, as you look at her?

The undeniably majestic Black Sickle Bill. So arresting and magnificent that not only did fashion come to mind many times as I watched this beauty, but the most fitting phrase is certainly haute couture, yes?

Something else I was reminded of was course Charlize Theron’s Queen Ravenna costumes in Snow White And The Huntsman (2012).

Now, the Twelve Wired Bird (TW) is definitely the one I consider most strange out of all the birds featured. Unfortunately for me, even though I love yellow and black together, something about the way TW moves and dances reminded me too much of a cockroach, which then meant that TW was never going to be my favourite.

I’m just glad that those ‘wires’ aren’t painful or the result of a horrible accident. What are they really comprised of? I wonder…

Last but in no way least, we have the Flame Bowbird. Standing here and looking both ‘hot’ and like one of the most perfectly ripened and juicy mangos I’ve ever seen.

I’ll remember him most for the above reasons and for being a combination of my younger self’s two favourite colours, as well as for building that artful structure made of sticks; something else that also screamed FASHION.

Watch Dancing With The Birds and see just how ‘birdlike’ we really are.
