Bridget Jones Baby review

Image result for bridget jones baby Vs Image result for bridget jones baby book

I love the Bridget Jones films have every single one. Upon discovering that Bridget Jones Baby was going to be released one naturally jumped for joy for seeing  a modern women tell things how it was and her constant struggle between two men Mark Darcy and Daniel Cleaver. I have loved the chemistry between all three of these characters and the relationships shared but once finding out that Hugh Grant was not going to be in the film, was a major blow to the films credit ability as being based on the books. In comparison to the book the only thing that seems to of have remained the same Bridget forever family reminders of her to get the baby factory going and longing to be with Mark Darcy. Even though something always seems to fuck it whether it insecurity paranoia or plan and simple bad luck. The other  thing is that runs in both is that there are two dads in the book Mark Darcy and Daniel Cleaver, in the film some festival guy can’t really remember his name and Mark Darcy.

Comedy element

Film has funny moments of Bridget falling into mud whilst at festival, trying to find out about festival guys sperm levels in an live air interview and getting to the hospital without Mark Darcy collapsing.

Book has numerous endless funny moments when Daniel Cleaver takes Bridget to a fish restaurant before revealing that she is up the duff and then throws up all over Cleavers car. Bridget’s homemade muffins that contain glass which seems to got both men sitting down together. It was the funny moments like these that the film lacked  but again this comes down to not having Hugh Grant to have that chemistry we have seen in the other films. I have not even finished the book and am more impressed at the book than the film.

Romance element

As we Mark Darcy is the smart well mannered respectable man who behaves well but lacks the random spontaneous nature that Bridget likes about Cleaver. Even though Bridget continues to fall into the trap of his manipulating ways to get in her pants which we have seen numerous times and this characters ways continue within the book by flirting with the scanner lady whilst Bridget is having her scan.

In the film Mark Darcy character is the same but it seemed kinda of preset he was going to be the father and end up marrying Bridget. This festival guy comes over is a prick and annoying overbearing man . I don’t know how Bridget put up with his ways for so long in the film. Darcy was seen to be the one lacking the thoughtfulness and being there where stereo- typically one should be there. I loved Darcy’s come back about him being there the whole of her life and this dude being there like five minutes although it would of been nice to have a little fight.

There didn’t seem to be any seduction from this festive guy I mean Bridget wasn’t that drunk. It was like open ya legs and there I go. Was not impressed by this part of the film.

Plot wise

I am rating the book higher than the film purely because of Daniel Cleaver being in it. One can only hope there is sequel where we see Cleaver with a child and the kids go to same school or something. That would be interesting.

‘Pokemon Generations’: Animated Series For YouTube

DPNews

For longtime fans of the franchise and newcomers alike, one aspect that has long been missing from the pantheon of marketing material was a show that was more closely tied into the video games themselves. Recent news confirms that The Pokemon Company has answered that call with a new animated web series named Pokemon Generations looking to fill in that gap.

Due to a new trailer released by The Pokémon Company (via Screenrant), we’ve got our first look. The upcoming series will be comprised of three-to-five-minute installments that seek to explore each of the franchise’s video games. These new animated adventures will take inspiration from game events, characters, and critters, to flesh out brand new stories from all across the virtual landscape.


Look for Pokemon Generations on YouTube starting September 16th and airing each week, running all the way through the fall to December 23rd!
