Welcome to our kitchen! Today you will discover how a rat can cook something very special for you. To be served hot; Today’s menu : Menu I. What is Ratatouille? II. Our movie review III. Some Vocabulary IV. About us I. What is Ratatouille? All his life, Remy, has had a gifted sense of smell and a most unusual dream for a rat: to cook in a gourmet restaurant. Undeterred by the obvious problem of trying to make it in the world’s most rodent-phobic profession, not to mention his family’s urgings to be satisfied with the usual trash-heap lifestyle, Remy’s fantasies are filled with flambés and sautés. But when circumstances literally drop Remy into the Parisian restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau — whose mantra “anyone can cook” has been Remy’s life-long inspiration - he soon finds that being discovered in the kitchen can be alarmingly perilous if you’ve got whiskers and a tail. Just as Remy’s dreams look like they will go up in smoke, he finds the one thing he needs, a friend to believe in him: the restaurant’s shy, outcast garbage boy who is about to be fired from his job. Now, with nothing left to lose, Remy and Linguini form the most improbable partnership - with Linguini’s clumsy body channeling Remy’s creative brains - that will turn Paris upside down, leading them both on an incredible journey of comical twists, emotional turns and the most unlikely of triumphs, which they could never have imagined without each other. Trailer: http://www.apple.com/trailers/disney/ratatouille/ II. Description of the audio review 1. What is Ratatouille? 2. What is the recipe to make a good Ratatouille? 3. Its success III. Some Vocabulary fairytale : a story that is real fantasy, often smooth soundtrack : The sound part of the movie value : a good principle animated movie: a movie in which actors are animated, created by computer.

No matter how good life seems… There is always one thing you can never have. Between love and lust, all or nothing, guilt and innocence. There are no little secrets. Director: Woody ALLEN Release Date: 26 October 2005 (France) Genre: Crime / Drama / Romance Awards: Nominated for Oscar. Another 5 wins & 10 nominations PLOT: A clandestine love affair sends one man’s charmed life into a tailspin in this dark, disturbing drama written and directed by Woody Allen, his first film set and shot in Great Britain and one of his few films without any humor. Chris Wilton (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) is an Irish tennis player with an impoverished background. Just accomplished enough to make his way onto the professional circuit, but not skilled enough to be a consistent winner, he now works as an instructor at a London tennis club. The wealthy Tom Hewett (Matthew Goode), who is as impressed by Chris’s charm and good looks as he is by his game, takes a tennis lesson from the young man. Chris’s intelligence and wit also make a strong impression on Tom’s pretty sister, Chloe (Emily Mortimer), who soon falls for him. It isn’t long before Chris and Chloe are engaged to be married; a match that pleases both Tom and his father, Alec (Brian Cox), a successful businessman who believes Chris has a bright future in his firm. However, Chris also feels an overwhelming attraction to Nola Rice (Scarlett Johansson), a sexy blonde from the United States who is dating Tom. Though Nola initially puts up some resistance, Chris gently nudges her in the direction of an affair. Passion soon ignites between the two, and they have a one-time sexual encounter, even as Chris and Chloe plan their wedding. Nola resists, however, when Chris makes additional attempts to wheedle her into bed. Nola drops out of Chris’s life shortly before his wedding, but a chance meeting a few months later resurrects the relationship as Chris and Chloe try to start a family.

There are 40 millions sheep in New Zealand…. and they’re cheesed off! Now that you’re warned, watch your back! See our review of the movie “Black Sheep” Summary I.      Information on “Black Sheep” II.     Synopsis III.    Description of the audio file IV.    Presentation of the authors I. Information on “Black Sheep” Directed and written by Jonathan King Produced by Philippa Campbell Starring :     Matthew Chamberlain Tammy Davis Oliver Driver Peter Feeney Music by Victoria Kelly Cinematography by Richard Bluck Runtime : 87 minutes Link to watch the trailer on YouTube : http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=q-l93gltkCc II.     Synopsis On a farm in New Zealand three young brothers, Angus (Eli Kent) and Henry (Nick Fenton) Oldfield and Tucker (Sam Clarke) are rounding up sheep. One day, Angus kills Henry’s pet sheep Dudley and terrifies him by dressing up in the dead sheep’s carcass. At the same moment, the housekeeper is arriving to tell them that their father has died in an accident. Many years later Henry adult (Nathan Meister) takes a taxi to the farm. His traumatic experience has left him with a terrible fear of sheep. Meanwhile two animal rights activists, Grant (Oliver Driver) and a young woman called Experience (Danielle Mason), enter the farm to take photos of a research laboratory. Grant steals a container of waste containing a sheep foetus which emerges and bites him, then crawls off and bites an adult sheep. Angus (Peter Feeney), now a farmer, rehearses for the presentation of his new sheep breed, The Oldfield. He meets Henry, and gives him a cheque for two million dollars to buy him out of his farm. Henry is about to leave but he first goes to the top of the farm with Tucker (Tammy Davis), to help himself accepting his father’s death. Henry and Tucker drive up the hill but their way is blocked by a sheep with a bite on its nose. They get out to deal with the sheep. Experience is joining them, still running from the laboratory. Tucker and Henry give her a ride in the truck. Suddenly they see smoke coming from the farm worker’s shed. Going to investigate they are confronted by a killer sheep. They lock the door but the sheep tries to break in. Henry’s sheep phobia kicks in big-time. Experience tells them the sheep have been affected by Angus’ genetic engineering program. The sheep headbutts through the wooden door and Tucker kills it with a couple of head-shots from his rifle. Henry, Tucker and Experience try to escape in the truck, but a sheep jumps into the cab and attacks Tucker, biting through his gumboot. He jumps into the back of the truck, leaving the sheep at the wheel. The trio jump off the back as the truck goes over the cliff and ends up shattered on a beach below. It is revealed that this is where Henry’s father fell to his death. They decide to make a run for the car back at the farmhouse, but have a long way to travel… III. Description of the audio review 1.    Introduction of us (Romy and Adrian) 2.    Presentation of the film Black Sheet: Director: Jonathan King Writer: Jonathan King (writer) Release Date: 19 March 2008 (France) 3.    Plot of the film : About three brothers: Henry (Nick Fenton and Nathan Meister), Angus (Eli Kent and     Peter Feeney), Tucker (Sam Clarke and Tammy Davis) Henry visits his brothers, who live in the family farm despite his phobia about sheep. However he discovers that his brother Angus leads some genetic research on sheep. At the same time, two animal right activists release an experimental sheep foetus,     which will be the cause of terrible events… 4.    Our point of view about the film: At first sight, it’s surprising to see gore scenes with lovely curly sheep eating humans.  But, then, as the ridiculous view became obvious, you find it very funny and you laugh a lot! To conclude, we will recommend you to watch Black Sheep because it was really a hilarious entertainment, especially for teenagers and adults, but this film is not suitable for kiddies as there are lots of blood in several scenes. IV. Presentation of the authors This podcast was recorded by 2 students from the University of Technology of Troyes (UTT). We are both working on an English course about cinema and communication, which allow us to improve our oral comprehension skills by studying British or American movies. Hi all! I’m Romy, a fourth year student in Material Technology at the UTT. I love watching films of all sorts and I was particularly surprised with Black Sheep! This website is a good way to find out information about films so… Have a look! Hi, I’m Adrian, it’s my 4th year at the UTT and I’m studying the materials’ properties, with a specialization in trading. I would like to work on energetic applications, in France or somewhere else. I’m glad to do this course as I spend hours watching U.K. & U.S. movies and series. At last, I hope you will enjoy watching Black Sheep of course!

I - Movie review podcast dialogue II - Description and “summary” of the podcast review III - Information on the film IV - Highlighted interested point and vocabulary V - Pictures of the authors I - Movie review podcast dialogue : II - Description and “summary” of the podcast review : Introduction of us, then a little talk about the movie : •    Directors : Robert Rodriguez, Frank Miller, Quentin Tarantino. •    The genre of the movie : Action, crime thriller movie. •    Then the actors :Bruce Willis,  Jessica Alba, Benicio del Toro, Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen… •    Released Date : 1st june of 2005 in France. Then we make a little plot of the movie itself : three separated but loosely related stories: •    One follows John Hartigan protecting a stripper from a vengeful son of a senator pedophile. •    Another follows Marv, a man who is trying to track down the killer of his love. •    And the last follows Dwight makinh sure a corrupt cop doesn’t hurt any of the old town girls. Violence is the centerpiece of the three stories. Bullets and blood are stylised in order to represent the vision of Frank Miller in his Comics. This is one of the best movie we’ve seen for a long time. The acting wad excellent, the directing was great, and the black & white style is a really good thing. We’re waiting for the next one. III - Information on the film : Image of the movie: Link to the trailer: http://www.apple.com/trailers/miramax/sin_city/ Overview: •        Directors : Frank Miller Robert Rodriguez Quentin Tarantino (special guest director) •        Writer :     Frank Miller (graphic novels) •        Main Actors :  Bruce Willis Jessica Alba Benicio Del Toro Mickey Rourke Clive Owen •        Release date : 1 June 2005 (France) •        Genre : Action / Crime / Thriller •        Tagline : Hell of a way to end a partnership. •        Plot outline : A film that explores the dark and miserable town Basin City and tells the story of three different people, all caught up in the violent corruption of the city. •        Awards :  14 wins & 29 nominations. •        The motion picture association of america : Rated R for sustained strong stylized violence, nudity and sexual content including dialogue. •        Description : “Sin City” is four stories inter-weaved telling tales of corruption in Basin City. The first story (The Customer is always right) is short, and is based on the depression of women that they need to pay a man to feel loved when they commit suicide. The next story is Part 1 of “That Yellow Bastard” about a cop who needs to save a young girl from being raped. The third story (The Hard Goodbye) features a man taking revenge on a heartless killer who murdered his one-night stand. The fourth story (The Big, Fat Kill) stars a man who must dispatch a cop’s body, but it will be a tough ride to do it. Following that are two conclusions to Sin City, the ending of “That Yellow Bastard” which is set 8 years later, and a short story that ends Sin City. •        Other reviews : -http://www.reelviews.net/movies/s/sin_city.html -http://www.rollingstone.com/reviews/movie/6824548/review/7232512/sin_city_movie_review Sources: -http://www.imdb.com/ -http://www.cine-collector.com/ -http://www.apple.com/ -http://www.reelviews.net/ -http://www.rollingstone.com/ IV - Highlighted point and vocabulary : This is one of the first films (along with Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Casshern, and Immortel (Ad Vitam)) to be shot primarily on a digital backlot. The film employed the use of the Sony HDC-950 high-definition digital camera, having the actors work in front of a green screen, that allowed for the artificial backgrounds (as well as some major foreground elements, such as cars) to be added later during the post-production stage. However, it should be noted that three of the sets on the film were practical (i.e. constructed by hand). They were: 1.    Kadie’s Bar, where all of the major characters make an appearance at least once and also the only location in which all objects are in color. 2.    Shellie’s apartment. The front door and kitchen are real, while bathroom and corridors are artificial. 3.    The hospital corridor in the epilogue. Although the first shot of walking feet was done on greenscreen, the corridor in the next shot is real. The background becomes artificial again when the interior of the elevator is shown. While the use of a green screen has become quite standard for special effects filming, the use of high-definition digital cameras is quite noteworthy in the production of this film. The combination of these two techniques makes Sin City (along with Sky Captain, which was produced the same way) one of the few fully digital, live-action motion pictures. This technique also means that the whole film was initially shot in full color, and was converted back to high-quality black-and-white. Colorization is used on certain subjects in a scene, such as Devon Aoki’s red-and-blue clothing, Alexis Bledel’s blue eyes and red blood, Michael Clarke Duncan’s golden eye, Rutger Hauer’s grey eyes, Jamie King’s red dress and blonde hair, Clive Owen’s red Converse shoes, Mickey Rourke’s red blood, Marley Shelton’s green eyes, red dress, and red lips, Nick Stahl’s yellow face and body, and Elijah Wood’s white glasses. The film was color-corrected digitally and, as in film noir tradition, treated for heightened contrast so as to more clearly separate blacks and whites. This was done not only to give the film a more film-noir look, but also to make it appear more like the original comic. This technique was used again on another Frank Miller adaptation, 300, which was shot on film.

Review of the documentary “Sicko”, by Michael Moore. Released in 2007, written and directed by Michael Moore Plot outline : A documentary comparing the highly profitable American health care industry to other nations, and HMO horror stories. Abstract: Sicko by Michael Moore (Bowling for columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11). In the same idea of criticizing the American society, it shows why the American health care system is a problem and doesn’t work. MM travels all around the world and interviews people about their health care system to compare with the American one. A great documentary, not a film, that is totally amazing and scary. Trailer : http://www.apple.com/trailers/weinstein/sicko/trailer1 We are a group of about 16 students from different programs within the UTT (University of Technology of Troyes) in France. Our course (LE16) is offered to us after we have passed the BULATS diploma as a different way to continue develop our english skills. We have different assignments troughout the semester such as listenning tests and review recordings and our final exam concerns three movies that we are supposed to analyse a couple of times each. I think we are all here for the same reason: we love watching films ! This podcast was recorded by two students from the University of Technology of Troyes in France. We are both attending an english speaking course about oral communication and cinema. This allows us to improve our english skills by studying content that we actually love: films and documentaries. Nicolas: I am a student in my 1st year of a Master degree in Sports Management. I am specialising in event management, marketing and communication applied in the field of sports. I have been travelling in the past in Australia, the USA and the Uk a few times. My objective in life is pretty much to work in the surf business and somewhere hot, possibly in the southern athmosphere… Eloi: I’m 22 and I study materials science at the University of Technology of Troyes. I am very interested in the American society and so I took le16 and I’m going to spend 4 months in an American university in Philadelphia from September through December.
