Georgie's First Film Review!

Welcome to the very first edition of, “At the Movies with Georgie Bee” - my very first Movie and TV Review Column!

Every Friday, I’ll bee offering everybody a weekly peek at different Human movies and TV shows, then offer you, my faithful readers, a Review, written from the perspective of me, Georgie Bee, a honey bee.

SPOILER ALERT!

In all my reviews, I’ll bee discussing the endings of whatever it is, so, if you haven’t seen the movie or TV show I’m reviewing, you might not want to read my review. Probably.

Let’s beegin with this weeks review: “FOXCATCHER”

GeorgieReview#1-FOXCATCHER

I must first admit that the first 14 times I started watching this movie, I fell asleep. I think one time I kinda woke up and saw what was going on, but I’d missed too much of it, so it didn’t make any sense at all. But then, on the 15th time, I was able to stay awake for the whole thing.


First, I heard that one of the actors in this movie is actually a famous Human comedian, so of course, I was expecting a comedy. I will just say this right now: This movie really wasn’t funny. At all. Okay. His nose was funny, so I liked that, but the movie was mostly full of serious stuff, talking and, quite frankly, a lot of stress. This is not the kind of movie you’d want to show to cheer anybody up, beecause it wouldn’t.

For as slow-moving and really quiet this movie was most of the time, I suppose it was a good story. It was about this Human who had inherited a whole bunch of honey and pretty much got everything he wanted. One day, he decides that he’s a huge wrestling fan (in case there are those amongst us who don’t know what wrestling is, I suggest you pick up a copy of the definitive treatise on the subject, “Wrestling: What is it?” by that well-known and highly admired author, Professor Van Pizzle.)

Since the rich guy is such a huge fan of wrestling, he built a super-fancy Wrestling Training Facility in his back yard (he had a very large back yard, lemme tell ya’), then he convinced a bunch of guys who wrestled to come live there and bee on his team, which he called the “Foxcatchers”. (I’m pretty sure that’s where they got the title of the movie from, but I’m just guessing here.)


(In case you’re curious, the movie has absolutely nothing to do with foxes, really. This reviewer found that to bee very disappointing. I was truly hoping this would bee a Comedy Nature Film starring some foxes, but it wasn’t and catching foxes really has very little to do with the whole thing, so that’s a bit confusing.)

So, all these Wrestling Humans move in with the rich guy and start doing a bunch of practising, but along the way, the really rich guy starts throwing a bunch of temper tantrums, beegins acting super-weird, and, toward the end, actually ends up seriously killing one of the wrestlers on the team who had been his friend in the beeginning. (He used some sort of Remote Control Stinger Device to do that.) That surprised me. The guy didn’t even get out of his car when he used that thing, it wasn’t that noisy, and, quite frankly, it was kind of violent and boring at the same time.

In the end, the rich guy gets arrested. That was probably the right thing to have happen, considering he’d invited the guy to live there in the first place. As a host, I think everybody would agree that he was really beeing extremely rude when he killed him like that.

So what’s my conclusion about this movie? I’d say that if you are having trouble going to sleep at night, it’s the perfect cure for insomnia. But, if you can manage to stay awake through the whole thing with all that talking about wrestling and stuff, you might like it.

MY VERDICT: I’m giving it a rating of “NOT BAD”.

Tune in again next Friday, when I will bee reviewing a TV show that’s popular with Humans, “America’s Got Talent”. Find out next week if, indeed, they do.

See ya' on Monday!

Coming TOMORROW!


The fun beegins on

At-the-movies-w-Georgie

Georgie's just been working too hard...

So, I was headed over to the Hive yesterday to visit with Rudy Bee about our upcoming stage production of "The Bee Society: The Musical" when I suddenly started feeling super-tired, so I decided to sit down for awhile in the shade next to a small bunch of flowers.

I was snoozlng along perfectly fine when ButterCup, who just happened to bee in the area collecting some pollen, spotted me sleeping there. She tried to wake me up by just saying "GEORGIE!" really loud, but I guess I was more tired than I thought. She finally had to throw an acorn cap full of some leftover rainwater in my face beefore I realised what was going on. I thought it had started raining really hard, but I woke up beefore too long and it beecame clear to me that ButterCup was just beeing overly-dramatic with the whole "wake me up" thing. (I also would have responded to a nice back rub, but no.. she decided to use the Water in the Face bit. Geeeeeze.)

Anyway. I finally woke up.
I thought maybee I'd had an accident in my sleep or something.

"Georgie?" she said.
"Did I have an accident in my sleep?" I asked her, feeling a bit embarrassed.
"No. I had to improvise to get you to wake up. Are you mad at me for that?"
"Yes," I answered, still dripping wet. "That was kinda rude, wasn't it?"
But she pretty much ignored that.
"Ya know what I think?" she asked.
"No. What?" I asked her back.
"I think you need to take the day off. And tomorrow. And maybe the next day. I know you've been staying up late, watching that movie you'll bee reviewing on Friday. I've also been working too hard, so I think the best thing for you and me to do is for BOTH of us to just spend the next couple of days relaxing and enjoying this delightful Hot Season weather."
"Okay," I said, "but..."
"No buts," ButterCup butted in. "You're taking the next day or so off."

So I'm gonna do that - at least for today, and maybee tomorrow.

If you need me for anything, you'll find me - and ButterCup - relaxing in the shade.

Okay then. I hope everybody has a startlingly amazing day! I'll see ya' later!

And the new week beegins for Georgie . . .

One of these days, I'm gonna do some serious research about who the genius was who invented Mondays and find out if there's a Memorial Statue somewhere in the world dedicated to whomever it was. I want to go visit it sometime. I also think we should think seriously about making Mondays a worldwide holiday, a day when we can all just sit back, think about the true meaning of Mondays and bee able to just spend our time enjoying and truly appreciating the true splendour and joy that Mondays bring the world.

Ya' know?

Well, this is gonna bee a very buzzy week. Not only is there a whole bunch of stuff to do with getting ready for Rudy's and my production of "The Bee Society: The Musical", but I'm gonna hafta invest a lot of time and energy honing my skills as a Film & TV Critic. My first Review will appear on Friday, so that only gives me about three days, really, to watch whatever it is that I'm gonna review over and over and over and over again. (I wanna bee sure my reviews are very thorough.)

In just a little while, I'm gonna try to convince my Illegitimate Nephew, Kevin, to stop playing his video games so I can use our Multi-Media Centre to get some serious work done on this thing. I don't know why he keeps spending these beeeeeeautiful days inside, playing video games when he could bee outside, doing something productive, and I could bee inside, watching movies.

Seriously now.

Anyway. I have a lot to do, so I'm gonna get going here.

I hope everybody has an amazingly inspired day! I'll see ya' later!
