Ace Ventura Pet Detective is very funny, staring Jim Carrey as a 'pet detective' his adventures are hilarious, especially the part with the hippo ….. you have to see it to believe it. The aspect of this film which adds the most is the ability of Jim Carrey to pull a wide range of very expressive facial positions as well as the body language of a man who looks to be made of elastic. This adds so much to the film as well as being funny in its own right. Of course, for this family film there is a happy ending, well there has to be there was a sequel, but it is still worth watching as even with that knowledge the humour is still a surprise in the way that it is delivered.
Jamaba is an online site which is fun and addictive. They have a lot if different games to play form catchphrase to trivia quizzes. To play the games you have to have shockwave, and some of the games may be a little slow downloading if the site is busy or you have an older computer. There are small prizes such as £20 if you have chosen the correct letters for the day up to prizes such as wide screen TV's and scooters. I haven't won anything there yet, but I still live in hope.
www.loquax.com is one of my favourite sites. It has loads of competition links, categorised into different groups such as food and drink computers, and kids. For anyone who likes entering competitions this is a must because in addition to all these wonderful links and information on the competitions and the prizes there are also links to other useful tools that will help in the hobby of comping. For those who want to take a break from entering competitions, or who just want to be a little more sociable there is even a java chatroom on the site. I haven't tried that yet, but aim to soon. A great site worth book marking and visiting regularly, especially the calendar part which tells you which competitions are closing, and the what's new section.
Blackadder is one of the funniest series' on television. There are several different settings. The one set in Elizabethan times is the funniest, Queen Elizabeth come over as being very juvenile and Blackadder calls her queeny. There are a lot of funny moments and the actors do it all with straight faces. When I first heard about this programme I did not think I would like it, but I loved it after being persuaded to watch it. Not only is it worth watching, it is worth recording to watch again and again.
I have been using NTL for a while. The connection speeds are OK but if you remain inactive for over ten minuets you get kicked off. This is not usually a problem as reconnecting is easy, but it can be a bit of a pain if you were only reading a long eweb page. The technical helpline is very mixed. Some people are helpful, whilst others do not seam to known what they are talking about. As a free internet provider they are not bad, but they are not the best as their news can be a bit slow. If you are an NTL customer then the service is free, if you are a BT customer then you need to spend £10 a month with them
Re-volt is a crazy game with toy cars. You can drive around varied tracks, from 'Toy world' to 'Botanic gardens'. You have four tracks to start off with and you use your skill to unlock other tracks and better cars. There are other areas to the game other than racing. You can build your own tracks and race you friends on them, collect stars in the stunt arena and improve your time on 'time-trial' This game needs a strategy to play successfully and I enjoyed playing on it. It is hard when you first start as the controls are very sensitive compared to other games. The tracks are fun and my personal favourite is 'Toy World 1 ' where you have a light up piano as a part of the course that plays the notes as you go over them. You can have up to 4 players at on time, and can race against each other. You can also play battle tag. This is more fun with 3 or 4 players. It is like 'tag' only the first person to get the start is 'it' and everyone has to tag that car. If you are playing against the computer you are against 7 other cars. Overall I did enjoy this game and I would recommend it to other car racing fans.
