Revision avoidance

Writing about web page http://blogs.warwick.ac.uk/lornagriffiths

Some quizzes I nicked from Lorna…





You Are Incredibly Logical


(You got 100% of the questions right)

Move over Spock – you're the new master of logic

You think rationally, clearly, and quickly.

A seasoned problem solver, your mind is like a computer!








Your English Skills:



Punctuation: 80%

Spelling: 80%

Grammar: 60%

Vocabulary: 60%

So my exam's going to go well tomorrow then…


The film quiz!

Writing about Another baton was passed. from Et tu, Bloge.

Hey everybody, look how well my revision for my next (tomorrow!) exam is going…. :-S

Last film I saw at the cinema
'Sahara'. It's fantastic and everybody should go see it. Although the book by Clive Cussler (favourite author of yours truly) was better. People should go and read this too

Last film I watched on DVD/on computer/TV etc
Watched The Italian Job yesterday afternoon to wind down from first exam. So much for Heat Transer revision Si :-(

Films I'm looking forward to seeing
Well obviously Star Wars Episode III, also want to see xXx 2, Bourne Supremacy (still haven't watched it!) and Hitchhikers Guide. Doubtless there's loads here that I've forgotten to mention

Total number of films I own
My DVD rack is 47 high and full, but the top 6 are TV ones and not films. But then I have a couple of boxed sets that aren't in the rack, so 46 DVDs in total here. And several tapes and films on my laptop from CD - -...

Five films that mean something to me
Like Victoria, I'm just going to put 5 of my most favourite films here.

1. Top Gun (a.k.a. Top Flop in my household) – This has to be my all-time favourite film. Some of the most impressive aerial photography ever shot, lots of aeroplanes and jet noises, and a kick-ass soundtrack. What more could you possibly want in a film?

2. Lethal Weapon 4 – The best of the Lethal Weapon films, of which I am a huge fan. Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are at their best here playing off against each other in an action comedy role, and Chris Rock adds further comic entertainment

3. The Matrix – Who could leave this out? Truly mind-blowing when first released because it was such a leap forward in the experience of a film. A bit of a different plot and another good soundtrack make this an all-time guaranateed classic. And god knows how many times my friends and I have watched it on film all-nighters. Good memories

4. Black Hawk Down – A moving modern warfare story. It's a very impressive film to watch, yet at the same time manages to not over-dramatise the situation and just tell it how I'd imagine it really is – all about the men on the ground, and not very pretty

5. Cruel Intentions – Just to prove that I'm not a total action junkie. An interesting plot and strong cast make this another favourite film of mine. And one of my all-time favourite soundtracks

Other mentionable films: Independence day, Good Will Hunting, Ocean's Eleven, The Fifth Element

Passing the baton...
I feel the need to vary the list ever-so-slightly, so:

Chris
Simon
Anna
Laura
Matt
