# 416 – Finding Nemo

Almost perfect timing with Finding Dory coming out in a few months!

Nemo is one of my favourite kids movies. It is actually hilarious. I remember very vividly, watching for the first time, not being able to stop laughing when Dory starts speaking whale. Not much changed this time around.

I started planning my blog about 5 minutes in, I thought it might be nice to have a little list of my favourite lines. But then it might just be easier to post the entire script.
Ellen DeGeneres makes Dory, literally! Dory was written specifically for Ellen and she’s one of the best characters of all time.
And it wouldn’t quite be a Disney movie without the lessons! Nemo is full of valuable things to learn, for all the family!

Nice work Pixar. Can’t wait for Dory to get lost so we can find her and experience the fun all over again.

Go grab the kids and have a family day in with Nemo! Look out for the Pizza Planet truck from Toy Story while you’re at it 😉

# 417 – The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert

p1

If you’ve been reading, you may remember me mentioning this movie in my ‘Wake In Fright’ review… Both filmed right here in my hometown, Broken Hill!
Well not all of it, unfortunately.
Small towns really have a way of never getting over monumental moments in their history, like Priscilla. Why would they? It’s a pride thing. I grew up knowing how important Priscilla is to Broken Hill but never watched it due to my age. So imagine my disappointment when I finally watched Priscilla and found out Broken Hill took up about 20 minutes of the whole movie. Sad face.

Truth be told, I didn’t watch this recently. A few months back Broken Hill put on an event ‘Broken Heel Festival’ to celebrate Priscilla’s 21st birthday. It was an amazing weekend long event that pushed me to finally watch it.

It was very entertaining, funny listening to the guys bitch and whinge at each other. They have some hilarious one liners, sometimes I understood them.. sometimes I didn’t. It does have its moments though, where the harsh reality of being a drag queen or transgender comes into play, which just makes it all the more loveable.

Most importantly, Priscilla put Australia on the map in a very new way and showed the world a positive view on the LGBT community, which was well overdue. Let’s hope to see more of it.

Enjoy!

P.S
Guy Pearce is sexy. Always. Good guy, bad guy, drag queen, doesn’t matter.

Amazing. I loved this! Disappointed in myself for not seeing it earlier.

It tells the story of a very smart but troubled boy, apparently with a photographic memory, who solves an equation on a board at a university where he works. After everyone realises how smart he is they set out on a mission to help him become something better.

It was pretty long, considering nothing too crazy happened, and very predictable. That didn’t really matter though. The characters were loveable and the performances were so moving and powerful. My eyes were glued to the screen the entire time and I felt very involved in the story. There didn’t seem to be one scene that didn’t mean something. I even had a little tear or two!

Although there are big names throughout, all brilliant, none can compare to Robin Williams. A truly wonderful actor… makes me sad that he’s gone.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
