The Vow

I had been eagerly a waiting the arrival for this DVD! For some reason the cinema in my small city decided not to play it, I was devastated. I hoped that because I had been looking forward to it so much that I would not be disappointed (everyone has that feeling where they look forward so much it ends up becoming no where near as good).

I was not disappointed though! My boyfriend was not too keen though! definitely a chick-flick! Channing Tantum was good as normal- he suits these kind of roles- like Dear John. The film had a predictable ending but something I extremely liked was there was a slight twist, something which I had not expected. It was only something small but I liked that!

The story is based on true events and played extremely well- I would just liked to have seen more- it was only one hour forty minutes and I think an extra ten minutes to just show more ‘dates’. It would have been a nice circle if it ended up with a second wedding.

Reality T.V, is it reality?

For my post today I want to offer my view on the idea of reality T.V programmes and are they real?  Turn on the television around 10 at night and I am certain you will definitely find a pragramme that has something to do with reality or a version of it! Personally I have one guilty pleasure which is Keeping up With the Kardashians, I think the reason I like it is that the people are unknowingly funny with their ways, as they are so ‘over the top’ about everything. I bet they could make a big deal out of a cheese sandwich!

Looking though papers during the week or through magazines there are people who have became apart of the tabloids due to programmes such as TOWIE, Geordie Shore and Jersey Shore! The people have done nothing that is actually worth while and the majority of the people are thick, or they act that way to gain views. They are making money by just being rich, on the whole they are not good examples to the people who are watching them. They have money to be able to waste and then people want to be like them so they go out and attempt to spend similar amounts of money to them. Is this really a good example to set? and it it right that for just acting in ‘scripted reality’ they are making a fortune?

The term scripted reality itself suggests the ironic sense of all the programmes. The worst programme, which I admit i do watch sometimes, is 16 and pregnant and Teen Mom. The fact that there is numerous seasons and the amount of money that the people are making is in a way promoting teen pregnancy- but can you name a couple who have made it through?

For now the path is scripted reality before this it was programmes like big brother that was big, what is going to be next? the lives of ‘ordinary people’?

 

 

Driving- the new proposed fine on the motorway!

ImageLiving in England the main roads of transport across the country is the motorway! Imagine the lanes are numbered 1,2,3 going left to right. Lane number 1 is the ‘keep to the left’ lane where you should remain unless you are overtaking. Number 2 lane is where you over take traffic going slower in lane 1 as well as being used to allow new cars merging onto the motorway from slip roads and can be used by cars towing things and lorries, lane 3 is only allowed to be used by cars and is called the ‘fast lane’ that can be used for over taking lanes 1 and 2.

The government has, in the past few days, proposed a new fine for middle lane (lane 2) hoggers. These are the people who basically never move from the middle lane. Due to this they can cause more problems than those who are going slower in the 1st lane. This is because it is illegal to undertake a car on the motorway and the cars cause a serious risk. I normally think that there are too many fines in place for motorists- do not even get me started on why people can’t use a phone but can smoke! I believe that this is an extremely good idea that should be fined as I believe it will help to lower accidents on the motorway. 

The reason that people do this wrong however is that they lack proper guidance on what is the correct protocol on a motorway. I know this as I have only been passed for 5 years,  and my dad taught me well and I have frequently commuted on a motorway. On the other hand I have friends who are predominately drivers in the city and sometimes their motorway driving is scary, I obviously then become a passenger driver! But the issue here is that people such as my friends should be given adequate lessons within their driving lessons which people pay a small fortune for!

Does anyone else think it is a good idea or does someone else believe something else should be done?
