REVIEW
Laskar Pelangi: The Audacity of Hope
This is a movie adapted from a best-selling Indonesian novel. It took 40 days of filming on Belitong
Island, Bangka-Belitung province. Involving 12 local actors, it reportedly cost Rp 8 billion. With all the
efforts of transforming Laskar Pelangi (Rainbow Warrior) into a moving picture, will it satisfy readers
imaginations?
Laskar Pelangi, the novel, was written by Andrea Hirata in 2005, based on his own experiences. It is
about an inspiring teacher and her 10 students in the poverty-stricken Kampung Gantong in Belitong. The
poor condition of their school building does not dampen their high spirits and hopes for a better future.
Two years later, the novel became a phenomenon in Indonesian literature. With its humanistic touch,
Laskar Pelangi has sold more than 500,000 copies and has won the position of Must-Read Novel in every
corner of the nations bookshops and media review pages. It has finally overcome the domination of teen-
lit, chick-lit and even religious novels, the popular theme of today.
Andrea entrusted the filming of the story to the respected figures in the film industry, Mira Lesmana
and Riza, as producer and film director. In July 2007, Mira and Riri started the pre-production, which took
a year to finish. Together with the scriptwriter Salman Aristo, they decided to create a different scenario for
the film.

REVIEW
Yet Another Western!
Twenty-four of the thirty - two new films shown in the Colony this year have been western. The film
now showing at the Paramount, Kill for A Dollar, is the twenty-fifth western to show. It is not very much
different, no better and only a little inferior to the other twenty-four.
The story is the usual one. A bad man comes to a small town. He shoots the sheriff and a number of
other innocent people and rides away. At first no one in the town is brave enough to ride after him, but at
last the editor of the local newspaper puts on his gun, borrows a horse and ride after him into the desert.
In the numerous scenes that follow there are a number of gun battles, during which forty-eight men
are shoot, fifteen horses fall down and the main street of the town is burnt to the ground.
The part of the bad man, who wears black clothes is played by Pistol Smith. Mark Limp, as the brave
editor, wears brown clothes and white hat. The clothes act rather better than the people wearing them.
Perhaps one day the local audiences will grow weary if seeing the same film every week. Perhaps
they will refuse to pay money to see badly acted, badly directed, and badly written films of people killing
one another for no good reason. Unfortunately, there is no sign that this time has come. Next week, at the
Odeon, the twenty-sixth western will be shown. It is called A Dollar to Kill.

The Last Emperor
Dont go to see Dont go to see The Last Emperor if you are expecting a history lesson. Bertoluccis
epic about the rise and fall of Pu Yi is hard to follow and confusing at times. But he has done a remarkable
job of portraying the Chinese culture, and he has captured China in stunningly beautiful images. There are
some touching scenes, as when the young Pu Yis nurse is taken from him. Unfortunately, the movie is too
long and tends to drag at times.

REVIEW
The Story to Kung Fu Panda
The story to Kung Fu Panda is nothing really new, but it is told so well as to actually pack an
emotional punch. And it never comes off as laughable, which in lesser hands could easily have happened.
Speaking of laughs, there are many to be had here as well. Kung Fu Panda works on just about every
level a family movie can. The cast features Jack Black as Po the Panda. The furious five, the most feared
group of warriors in all of China, consists of Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Monkey (Jackie Chan), Mantis (Seth
Roger), Viper (Lucy Liu), and Crane (David Cross). Their master is Shifu (Dustin Hoffman), a fur ball
creature who is a legendary teacher of Kung Fu. Escaped from prison and on hi way to claim the Dragon
Scroll, which will make him the all powerful Dragon Warrior, is the good gone bad Tai Lung (Ian
McShane). But first, hell have to muscle his way around 400 pounds of panda to get to it.
Kung Fu Panda is a damn good time at the movies. This was the movie that Dreamworks Animation so
desperately needed after the disappointing Shrek The Third. With gorgeous animation, spectacular
action, a great cast and dramatic weight of an Akira Kurosawa film, Kung Fu Panda is one of the favourite
movie of the year.
394. Which of the following quality does not describe the movie?
A. Funny
B. Touching
C. Stunning movie picture
D. Excellent actors
E. Unexciting
395. Shrek The Third is ...

THE PRINCESS DIARIES
Meg Cabot
Harper Collins
Young Adult
ISBN: 0380814021
304 pages
As the hilariously funny tale called The Princess Diaries begins, Mia Thermopolis is just a regular
high school freshman at Albert Einstein High School. Well, as regular as you can be when you live in a loft
in downtown New York with your flighty artist Mom. And as regular as you can be when your best friend is
Lilly, a punky and spunky militant who produces her own TV show.
As readers can guess from the title, this book takes the form of a diary, written by Mia. Over the span
of a month, she relates her daily woes and embarrassments in heart breaking detail. As with most
teenaged girls, Mia thinks she is hopeless, looks-wise. Shes tall 59 and klutzy, and not so gifted in
the chest department. Then there is school. One of Mias biggest problems is the fact she is flunking
Algebra and, to make matters worse, her Mom has begun dating her teacher. Gross.
In the boy department, the cutest one in school has the locker next to hers, but doesnt even know
Mia exists, even as his snooty girlfriend Lana, a popular cheerleader, torments her. And to top it off, Mia is
developing some sort of weird crush on Michael, Lillys computer nerd brother.
Then one day, Mia finds out she is a princess. Okay, I know that doesnt sound bad to most girls, but
Mia hates the idea instantly. How does this fairy tale come true? Her father is ruler of the principality of
Genovia and since Mia is his only child, she is next in line to the throne. Her dad sends in the big guns to
convince Mia that being a princess is what she is meant to do: her formidable grandmother comes to New
York to give Mia Princess Lessons. And as the word spreads around Albert Einstein High School that
Mia is royalty, her life just gets more crazy.
The ending of The Princess Diaries is a twisty one and will leave you joining for more stories of Mia
and the rest of her friends.

REVIEW
Bisa Saja is choosen as the first single of the album and theme song of BROWNIES, since the lyric
reflects the story in the movie. Budjana of GIGI demonstrates his skills in playing acoustic guitar in Cinta
Terakhir. Three other brand new song Dilema, Jangan Bilang Pacarku and Semua Orang Berhak
Mendapat Rasa Bahagia, gives supporting nuances to the movie flow as GIGI composed them by
imagining how the scenes would like look based on the screenplay.
When Hanung Bramantyo, the director, and Dewa Budjana of GIGI chated, Budjana expressed his
interest in making soundtrack album. Then, he recommended a few of GIGI songs, which the producer
accepted because of the chemistry they created with the movie. Since GIGI can provide a variety of colors
to add all kinds of musical nuances to enrich the movie, the producer deemed it unnecessary to find other
musicians to complete OST of BROWNIES. Armand Maulana (vocalist), I Gede Dewa Budjana (guitarist),
Thomas Ramdhan (Bass player), and Gusti Erhandy (Drum-stand-in player for Budhi haryono) put a lot of
effort to this album. As a result, theyve created perfect blend of movie and songs that makes BROWNIES
tastier.
Its always fun to have a piece of Brownies in your mouth. But having it in your stereo set is more
entertaining. No movie is perfect without musical score and OST of Brownies proved it excellent.

The passage is mainly about


the description how the album is accomplished through a series of steps
an account of unusual or amusing incident retold by the album
a review an of an original soundtrack of movie
the process in making original soundtrack of movie
an amusing story dealing with experience in different ways

Which of the following statements is NOT TRUE according to the text?


Budjana is the acoustic guitar player of GIGI
Bisa Saja is the theme song of BROWNIES
Hanung Bramantyo is the director of GIGI band
Armand Maulana is the vocalist of GIGI
OST of BROWNIES is excellent
REVIEW
Daughtry is an American Music Award-winning and Grammy nominated rock band from North
Caroline, formed by former American Idol Contestant, Chris Daughtry in 2006. Their debut self-titled
album, Daughtry, was released on November 21, 2006 and reached number one for two non-consecutive
weeks on the Billboard Top 200.
Chris Daughtrys distinctive vocals range from explosive to powerfully restrained. He wrote the lyrics
on all but two of the tracks and is well on his way to becoming a fine songwriter ; however, cliches
occasionaly creep in, as well as odd visuals, like in the mental health rumination Breakdown (Open up the
book you beat me with again / Read it off one sentence at a time). Other than the aforementioned
Breakdown, only All These Lives strays into dark territory with its dwelling on the mind of a murderer (All
these lives that youve been taking/ Deep inside, my heart is breaking / Broken homes from separation /
Dont you know its violation ?). Otherwise, Chris generally plays the victim to loves machinations.
Musically, its staight down the middle of the road in terms of rock, with a few surprises thrown in.
Surely, it is nice to hear a guitar solo every once in a while, too. There and Back Again springs from the
speakers as well with heavy power chords and insistent attitude. When things back down, they are equally
effective. Home is a beautiful power ballad of missed love. The final track, What About Now is a piano-
driven number written by Evanescence ex-patriots Ben Moody and David Hodges, and it wasnt hard to
imagine Amy Lee singing it, though Chris made it his own with male earnestness. I inexplicably dig Feels
Like Tonight though Id be hard-presssed to explain why theres anything particularly distinctive about it.
In the end, thats something that could be said about the entire album. For all the talk of diversity and
musical risk-taking, as Chris inferred leading up to this unveiling, the project as a whole suffers from an
inherent sameness. When its playing in the backgroud, the tracks all run together, and the lyrics just float
above your head and into the ether. Id like to blame it on the fact that Daughtry was recorded with studio
musicians and not the hand-picked band that Chris assembled and takes on the road for performance. Its
good, but its not the good. With Taylor Hicks self-titled debut (and Kathrene McPhees album) coming
down the pike, well soon find out where Daughtry ranks with the expectations for an American idol
Contestant.

Breaking and Entering is an unusual film. Will and Sandy are two architects working on a major urban
renewal project in the Kings Cross section in London. The area is unsafe ready for such a project. Willy
and Sandy move their offices into a nearby vacant warehouse.
Will has to deal with constant burglaries at his new office. One night, he saw Miro trying to break into
the building. He chased Miro to his run down apartment block and watched him return home to his mother.
Amira, a Bosnian immigrant who makes living tailoring clothes. Soon, Will meet Amira and they begin
and affair. And Amira learns that Will holds the key of her sons future. How far will this mother go to
protect her son? Breaking and Entering is a very interesting a film, but it is almost entirely character
driven. This is not a bad thing although in the film we are exposed to a story or action driven.
Anthony Minghella, the director, creates some of the most believable, interesting characters makes actors

decisions affecting how their lives will play out, or change and these decisions and actions affect the story.

RAFTERS
2002, Carlos Bosch y Josep Maria Domenech
In the summer of 1994 a team of Spanish television reporters shot and interviewed seven Cubans
and their families during the days before their dangerous and adventure of taking to the sea in an attempt
to reach the united State coast, fleeing the economic difficulties that destroy the country. Some time later
they manage to locate those who have been rescued at high sea and who are now in a refugee camp in
the American base at Guantanamo. Their families are still in Cuba and have no news of them. Seven
years have passed and the evolution of the characters, their destinies, their life in the United States and
the lives of those remaining in Cuba are portrayed in detail. The television team have not lost contact with
the seven protagonists; the raftsmen. Some still hold on the emigrants dream, others have fallen into
despair and some have become accustomed to failure, selling drugs becoming their only source of
income.
This film illustrates about Seven Cubans and their families who struggle for their life to have a better
life in the United States. The scenes give us inspiration about courage and bravery which are needed in
life. This film is enjoyable and worth seeing.

Review
Harrison Ford puts on the dog. He barks. He snarls. He even yips a couple times. Too bad Han Solo
hasnt learned any new tricks lately.
Whats most telling about Fords bulldog performance as Jack Stanfield, a bank security expert living
in a Modern Architecture dream house near Seattle, is that he spends most of his time looking over his
shoulder. After watching Firewall, you realize hes probably hunting for a new agent.
The film reeks terribly of dj vu. The clankity-clank plot, about a family held prisoners in their home
by some hottie thugs while chief baddie (Paul Bettany of Wimbledon) forces Dad to transfer $100 million
into a Swiss account is about as original as Big Mommas House 2.
Bruce Willis, Met Gibson, and even Ford have taken this angry daddy role for a number of spins,
transforming into blustery papa bears determined to retrieve their kin from the clutches of sleazoids.
Firewall lowers the bar on the action genre to a subterranean level. Thats due to a bone-tired script
by first-timer Joe Forte and lethargic direction by Richard Loncraine (Wimbledon). The biggest travesty
occurs in the traffic wreck of an ending, a horribly patched together affair that makes us wonder where
Fords acting talent fled to. After a string of flops, its his career that seems most in need of rescuing.
Firewall actually does hint as something new, preying on our fear of identity theft.
On the plus side, the family dog is used to great effect, and Bettany does well as a lick villain, even
though the role is ineptly written. Other than that, Firewall seems to take great pride in being bland. Even
sexy Virginia Madsen, as Jacks wife, is repressed in a bleached-out role that requires nothing more of her
than to constantly cling to her two kids in that lovely bed and only occasionally sass back at her boy-band-
looking captors. Gee, wonder if that will come up later? In Firewall, there are simply no surprises, except
just how bad this movie really is.

Review
It was the dawn of science and technology. Anything seemed possible-even the creation of the life
itself. Victor Frankenstein becomes absessed with this idea and works relentlessly to prove his theories;
but the glory he imagined becomes a living nightmare not only for him, but for his friends and family too.
Mary Shelleys gothic horror story-Frankenstein was first published in 1818 and has been the
inspiration behind numerous stage productions and the film many of which strayed a long way away from
her original masterpiece. Classical Comics presenting a full-colour graphic novel remains true to this
classic tale, bringing the original story to life which has never been created before.
This graphic novel is available in two versions: Original Text and Quick Text editions. The Original
Text stays fithful so Shellys original text, while the Quick Text brings the story up to date by presenting the
text into a more simplified style so that the tale is accessible to all readers.
The Quick Text edition will allow you to soak up a general felling for the characters and locations,
while the Original Text version will help you easily slip into the language in which the novel was written.
Even if youre not studying the original, this graphic novel is worth buying. Its a great story, and
should be one that everyone has the chance to read. Now, thanks to this release, even those who dont
particularly like to read too much are given the chance to find this tale and hopefully it may encourage
them to search out the original book too.
As with previous Classical Comics, the presentation is first class. The best grade paper really helps
to set this graphic novel head and shoulders above the usual comic book release on the market. Not only
that, you also get a pretty comprehensive biography of Shekkey; Mary Shelleys Family Tree; a feature
that explains what life was like in the year of the books release; and a brief look on how Frankenstein has
been adapted to many different formats over the years.

Review
The title is yummy baby and the Authors nick name Yummy Mummy. It is clear enough to be said that this
blog is composed by a mother to her baby. After reading her post I find that the mother and father got the
second marriage anniversary. Now they have a very chubby baby. I should say congratulations on their
completely fixed nice family.
The blog is written in the third person point of view. The third person is the baby itself. It shows that
the mother has big effort to take care and do everything for her baby. It is a very motherly tasted blog. I
