Zoolander (2001)

I prefer this movie, than that shitty sequel that didn’t do very well in theatres that I hear.

My brothers were into role modelling a while ago, and they looked very good looking. One of my brothers did a UK commercial that made him win $1,000 in cash. And to tell you the truth, they were what I like to call, them ‘Zoolander Brothers’, thanks to this movie.

Ben Stiller portrayed as Derek Zoolander. A famous fashion role model, and he was hilarious! Along with Ben Stiller, are his dad Jerry Stiller, Owen Wilson, his brother Andrew Wilson, Jon Voight, Vince Vaughn, Christine Taylor, David Bowie as himself, and Will Ferrell, as the most hideous, disgraceful, disgusting, and despicable villain that you have ever laid your eyes on. He was also worse with that white poodle pooch that he kept.

Brainwashed by that villain, he had to find a way to stop an assassination that he was ordered to follow, and solve a mystery in role modelling, and fashion.

And before you know, he did it. Especially when he used his psychic powers to stop a swinging blade.

I was pleased on how Ben Stiller was hilarious as Derek Zoolander. So for the sake of Paramount Pictures, I give this movie filmed in 2001, 8/10 stars. Success!

Top 10 Olympians in the Olympic Games (Both Summer/Winter)

The Olympic Games. Both summer and winter games. As there have been some famous Olympian’s that made sports history. In this list, there are three olympians from the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, three more from the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta, two more from the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris, France, one more from the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Colombia, and one more from the 1964 Winter Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria.

10. Steve Collins. A Canadian Olympic ski jumper who participated in the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta. He didn’t won any medals, but he sure did get photos of himself in the magazines. He was almost in last place, but was very pleased on how he got photos of himself in the magazines. He also signed autographs for the fans also, as they admired him. Although he does remind me of Ingio Montoya from “The Princess Bride”, but he does fly very well.

9. Carl Ludwig Long. A German long jumper in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany. He was a rival against Jesse Owens, but became a very kind friend right before the games were over. He won the silver medal for long jumping, and participated very well. He did his best for Germany before the Second World War was declared. He became a soldier for the German army after the games, right before he faced ‘Operation Husky’. The Allied invasion of Sicily, Italy.

8. Peter Kirby. A Canadian bobsledder who participated in the 1964 Winter Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria. He was at the back of the team, as he had to steer the sled. In a two man team, while participating in the 1964 Winter Olympics, they were in fourth place. But by going for the gold, close to the very end, he and his four man team won the gold medal. And really deserved it too. Canada was very pleased on he and his team. Although they wore some funny helmets in 1964, but were really not bad while participating. By looking at him, you probably think if he is in the air force. But no. He and his team were real bobsled Olympians in 1964.

7. Louie Zamperini. He participated in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany. He was a fast runner like Jesse Owens, but Jesse Owens had beaten him in track running for sure. He didn’t won any medals at that time. However, years after that, he got into the Second World War against the Japanese as a fighter bombardier until his plane crash landed in the sea. He survived for 47 days, until he was a POW at a camp where he faced the wrath of the Japanese. And after he and his friends faced the wrath of the Japanese, they were saved when the war ended in 1945. From his homecoming to how he missed the land of his hometown, he became a Christian Evangelist with a strong belief in forgiveness. In 1998, he ran and lit the torch of the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. He was for sure a fast runner, but also a survivor of redemption.

6. Eric Liddell. A Scottish Olympian who participated in the 1924 Summer Olympics, in Paris, France. They called him the ‘Flying Scotsman’ at some point, cause for how very fast he was. Pretty much as how that record breaking, two coal tendered green locomotive was, as it must’ve been his favorite thing. While participating in the games, his rival was Harold Abrahams. And both he and Abrahams at that time, were going for the gold. However for Liddell, he won two medals. One gold medal for the 400 meters, and a bronze medal for the 200 meters. And as the games were finished, they both gave up their rivalry before leaving in their separate ways. They had never forgot for what they did.

5. Harold Abrahams. An English track and field Olympian who participated in the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris, France. He had only one coach to train him. Sam Mussabini. At the time when the games were on, his rival was Eric Liddell. However, the good part for him, was that he won only two medals. One gold medal for 100 meters, and a silver medal for a relay race. He did everything he can by winning those medals, and how he and Liddell gave up their rivalry when the games were over. Sam Mussabini must’ve been very pleased of him, and how Abrahams and Liddell will never forget for what they did. For he and Liddell were to ‘go for the gold’.

4. Karen Percy. A Canadian alpine skier who participated in the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta. A very good one as she won two bronze medals, during her time at the games. One for super-G, and the other for downhill. She participated very well, and did her very best for Canada. She was also the flag bearer for Canada at the closing ceremonies when the games were over. The Canadians were very pleased of her. She was interviewed a few times, but not a lot. However, she was glad to deserve those bronze medals.

3. Jesse Owens. The star of the 1936 Summer Olympics, in Berlin, Germany, and every man in Europe loved him. An African-American fast track runner. He won four gold medals and every member and Olympian were pleased of him. At home, he had to face racism cause for how he was as an African-American. But by hearing about the Olympics in Berlin, and how he trained for that event, he became a very fast runner. His coach was Larry Synder, as he became his heralded athlete. He had a homecoming to remember, right after the games were over as every African American were very pleased of him. He also got to sign autographs from Olympic fans who were grew fond of him.

2. Eddie the Eagle. The star of the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta. A British Olympic ski jumper as didn’t won any medals, but the fans really love him. Michael Edwards who wanted to be an Olympian, but he finally did it. He trained for a few months, by doing it the old fashioned way and how he really soared like an eagle. He didn’t had a coach to train him. He did it all by himself, before his debut in Calgary, Alberta. He was interviewed many times, as some people could relate to how Michael Edwards was. Although he was in last place, but they really loved for how the way he participated, and how he really soared in the sky while ski jumping like an eagle. He was outstanding as an Olympian.

 

1. Daisuke Takahashi. He won the bronze medal in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia. A Japanese skater who skated way better than Will Ferrell in “Blades of Glory” and how he participated very well. The fans and Olympians were very pleased of him. An outstanding Olympic skater he was. And that’s not all folks. Cause after he had a successful homecoming to Japan, he did a skating tribute to Studio Ghibli’s very final masterpiece, “When Marnie Was There”. Directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, based on the novel by Joan G. Robinson, and Oscar nominated for Best Animated Feature Film. At the 88th Academy Awards ceremony, while Chris Rock was the host for that event. Unfortunately, if it weren’t for the academy cause for what happened, Studio Ghibli would’ve deserved that Oscar award.

Do you agree with my picks? Which are your favourite top 10 Olympian’s?

30 years since Eddie the Eagle

In the 2018 Winter Olympics, in Pyeonchang, South Korea, they were glad to have ski jumpers. And it’s not just that. While some of them can soar like an eagle…

…they’ve finally mentioned and interviewed, the real Eddie the Eagle!!

He was glad to be interviewed. Cause it has been 30 years since the 1988 Winter Olympics, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. And how he participated. He was in last place, but the fans really love him. He was a total icon at that time.

And when they’ve showed his true story, it was everything than for what happened in that movie.

He didn’t had an instructor like Hugh Jackman’s character, he was training like old fashioned way, and didn’t went to Germany for that practice hill that he got into.

Cause no matter for what he did, he really became a true Olympian.

Although the movie made him cry with a smile on his face, but I just have to find some video footage to post on YouTube. And I just love for how Eddie the Eagle did in Calgary. So, here’s to 30 years for what Eddie the Eagle did in Calgary, Alberta in 1988. I’m very proud of him.

Right after a promo and it’s video on TV, I wanted both to be posted on my YouTube account. With the right audio, the right colour and its lighting. Cause when Stanley Kubrick did “The Shining” in 1980, he did on the right way, while filmmaking. And I wanted to be like him at that very moment.

Everything was on the PVR at that time, when I was gonna do it. Unfortunately, someone deleted the recording by accident and I went berserk on that day.

I was pretty much like how Michael Madsen was in “Reservoir Dogs”. I wanted to slap him in the face very or hit his hard hearing ears.

And that person, who acts like a child trapped in a man’s body, and is a clumsy old crackpot….(Or C.O.C. for short)….

…is him!!

Jim: “I don’t really care. Especially for your friend…”

Tim Roth: “FUCK YOU!! FUCK YOU!!! WE FUCKING HATE YOU HERE!!!! WE FUCKING HATE YOU!!!!”

Roy Scheider: “YOU’RE A REALLY A DOUCHEBAG!!!! YOU KNOW THAT?!?! YOU’RE A DOUCHEBAG, BUT I CAN KICK YOUR ASS!!!!”

See what I mean?

Ocean Waves (a 1993 Studio Ghibli movie)

They had this premiered on TV, only in Japan in 1993, thanks to Studio Ghibli and the director, Tomomi Mochizuki.

Based on the 1990 novel by Saeko Himoru, they didn’t brought this to North America until December, 2016 by GKIDS. GKIDS had tried to find a US cast for this movie, but they didn’t before they released this, in the spring of 2017. So this became the very first Studio Ghibli that I ever watched in Japanese. English subbed. I really didn’t mind watching this in Japanese. I was more focused on how a relationship can really mean.

Rikako Muto, a new transfer girl student became a kind friend to two teenage boys. Taku Morisaki and Yutaka Matsuno. Taku began to be a friend with Rikako, and had a small trip from Kyoto to Tokyo, in Japan. Although, there were problems to be solved on, but it took time for Taku to know on how he felt on Rikako. Cause in the end, at that train station, Taku finally met her once more, and decided to stay together no matter what happens in life.

So I’m gonna give this 10/10 stars. Very successful. And when you get ready for Japan, here’s a movie to get ready on.
