The Guardian is without a doubt my favourite newspaper the newspaper consists of lots of different section. The main section, sport alongside the G2 come in every edition. The other sections which usually come once or twice a week include family, money, travel, technology, education and society sections plus much more. The news section which is obviously the main section of the newspaper is well set out, well written and it has proper news stories unlike other newspapers. The sport section is like all the sections well set out and well written. It also does well to keep a good balance of stories between all the sports wheras many other newspapers have an unbalanced amount of football stories. Aswell as the football stories, which still take up a decet amount of the sports section it usually has two pages dedicated to cricket whether or not a match is on and one page to each type of rugby although it has slightly more rugby league stories. And if a big event is on in other sports such as a grand slam or the ryder cup they well dedicated three or for pages to that. The G2 part of the newspaper is ver much like a magazine and it has lightharted stories and people can write in their stories which is usually three pages long. It also has quite a few interviews with fairly well known people. All in all the Guardian is a well sized, well pricedout, well wrote and well sectioned out newspaper who I would reccomend to people who want important newspaper instead of celebrity gossip.

The Guardian [DVD]

The Guardian [DVD]

The Guardian offers satisfying entertainment with a no-nonsense combination of Hollywood ... more

formula and good old-fashioned star power. While
honoring the men and women who serve as rescue
swimmers for the U.S. Coast Guard, this
predictable yet appealing drama is a well-crafted
showcase for Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher, who
bring welcome depth and dimension to their
formulaic roles. It's basically Top Gun for the
Coast Guard, with Costner playing a legendary
rescuer haunted by recent tragedy and the
impending break-up of his marriage, and Kutcher as
the hot-shot recruit whose bravado is tested when
Costner takes over a grueling 18-week basic
training course, where a 50% attrition rate
ensures that only the best will make the grade.
There's nothing particularly inventive about Ron
L. Brinkerhoff's screenplay, but it's
intelligently written and well-directed (by The
Fugitive helmer Andrew Davis) as it shows how
seasoned veteran and troubled but talented trainee
build mutual respect while sorting through the
trauma of accidents that left each of them as sole
survivors, tormented by self-doubt and guilt.
Bolstered by a strong supporting cast including
Neal McDonough, John Heard, Sela Ward and Clancy
Brown, The Guardian is a bit on the long side (137
minutes), but it never feels slow, and a romantic
subplot (with Kutcher wooing a schoolteacher
played by Melissa Sagemiller) blends nicely with
thrilling ocean-rescue sequences incorporating a
seamless blend of CGI and footage shot in a
750,000-gallon water tank. Music fans will welcome
the scene-stealing appearance of veteran singer
Bonnie Bramlett as the owner of a jazz/blues club
near the training base, where The Guardian serves
up yet another staple of its genre: the barroom
brawl. Although Hurricane Katrina prevented The
Guardian from being filmed in New Orleans in 2005,
real-life footage during the closing credits makes
it clear that the Coast Guard was essential in
Katrina's aftermath, and this rousing drama pays
overdue tribute to those who risk there lives (to
quote the Coast Guard's motto) "so that others may
live." --Jeff Shannon
