A comedy adventure set in the land of the Emperor Penguins in the heart of Antarctica. These penguins sing, and each needs their own special song to attract a soul mate. Our hero Mumble (ELIJAH WOOD), son of Memphis (HUGH JACKMAN) and Norma Jean (NICOLE KIDMAN) is the worst singer in the world... but he can tap-dance something fierce! And the rest... go watch it in the big screen.

The cast was well chosen indeed! The penguins are so damn cute! ahhhhh! especially the baby penguins. Those blue eyes on frodo (oopss!) on mumble...so cute!!!! Okey, to those who don't believe me, check out :
HappyFeetMovie. And to those who are still thinking of watching the movie.. what are you guys still contemplating about? Get your butts to the nearest cinemas and watch it, but hey no more Happy Feet in the cinemas anymore, so get yourself a DVD copy. Though the storyline is a bit too long, but it's meant to be for a purpose. It's meant to be realistic, with a message for conservation, apart from being JUST a feel-good animation movie. A round of applause to George Miller for a great production!!! And check out the cast:

* mumble: elijah wood -frodo fr LOTR
* gloria: brittany murphy (can't remember the movies she's in)
* noah the elder : hugo weaving -brilliant actor! V fr V for Vendetta, Elrond fr LOTR (javard, thought you would have guessed this!) and agent smith fr Matrix trilogy
* memphis: hugh jackman- wolverine fr x-men
* norma jean: nicole kidman-satine fr moulin rouge (do you need an intro for who nicole kidman is?????)
* lovelace AND ramon (i love this penguin!!!) : robin williams - another truly amazing actor-mrs doubtfire fr mrs doubtfire; the professor fr dead poets society, etc, etc.
* trey the elephant seal: the late steve irwin- crocodile hunter and an Ozzie hero.

Truly amazing supporting cast AND brilliant soundtrack. A round of applause to all of you. Please note that the info i've given for each of the actors are the amazing characters they've brought to life in other amazing movies, according to yours truly. ;)

My favourite penguin is Ramon ("size can be daunting, but i love you"..hik---please say these words with a latino accent) he is soo optimistic, even when faced with his greatest fear (which he kept hidden fr his other amigos-heights--see the connection?) i hope that i can see life with more optimism like him... ("you can do this, you just need to trick yourself"---again with the same latino accent) :)

The special part while watching this movie is that I was with this person who is so special in my life, woo hoo. I miss that person, hoping one day we could watch a movie again. Care to buy tickets for us? ......

Christina Aguilera is back. The eagerly anticipated double LP 'Back To Basics' is released on RCA, August 14th and is the superstar's first release since 2002's critically acclaimed, nine million-selling 'Stripped' - which sold 2 million in the UK alone.

'Back To Basics' glows with Christina's distinctive four octave vocals and a musical backdrop which features an orchestra, choir, string quartet and jazz horns, as well as techniques that offer a vintage sound and sensibility. Album highlights include 'I Got Trouble' which incorporates a scratchy blues feel, 'Candy Man' that recalls the tight harmonies of all-girl groups from the '30s and '40s, and 'Save Me From Myself' - an emotionally naked, raw-sounding song dedicated to her husband.

Christina Aguilera is Back to Basic for upcoming tour. Let us 'back to basic'. It will be fun and interesting for sure with the companion of pop superstar Christina Aguilera who is planning to kick off her second tour to support her latest LP "Back to Basics".

The singer seems quite excited about it that, even though she has yet to kick off her first tour, already lines up her second one. With a European tour that kicks off in the UK November 17, Aguilera subsequently announced the official tour dates for her US "Back to Basics" tour.

There are reportedly 13 stops at US arenas in the first part of 2007, kicking off in Houston February 20 and concluding May 5 in Sunrise, Florida. Aguilera, moreover, has also booked Danity Kane to open the shows, and The Pussycat Dolls to serve as the primary opening act.

Tickets for the US tour dates go on sale Saturday Oct 14th. And for Christina Aguilera's 2007 US tour dates you can visit the songbird's official site.
