Hieroglyphic of a person doing yoga in Ancient Kemet.

        Yoga was practiced in Ancient Egypt, North East Africa, for a very long time. Research has indicated that the philosophy of personality integration, or yoga, was practiced in Egypt for about 10,000 years which is a great expanse of time.
 The teaching of yoga that was espoused in the country of Egypt was derived from the meditations and insights by the early sage priests and priestesses. Egypt is not the original term for the country. Egypt is a modern term; the original inhabitants of the country called it Kemet, meaning black or the black land, because of the yearly inundation of the Nile River which caused the rich silt to overflow its banks. …
Yoga is the practice of binding individual consciousness with universal consciousness. This individual reality that you are experiencing is actually only a small reflection of your true nature and yoga is the practice of how to achieve the knowledge of one’s abiding and immortal aspect.
In the Kemetic teachings this process of yoga is called Smai Tawi which means UNION OF THE TWO LANDS, not to be confused with physical land masses, but is an explanation of the higher and lower nature within the human entity.

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998)
New
120 min 
Starring: Andrew Flemyng, Jason Statham, Vinnie Jones, Dexter Fletcher, Nick Moran, and Sting
Directed by: Guy Ritchie (Snatch , Revolver, Rocknrolla, Sherlock Holmes)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Heist
IMDB Grade: 8.2/10
Rotten Tomato Grade: 76%
Roger Ebert Grade:  3 out of 4 Stars
Plot: Four friends has just lost 500,000 Euros to a powerful crime lord. They have only 1 week to come up with the money or else pay the consequences.
Pros: Very original story. Loved how Ritchie shot the film. Great music. Great cast and characters. LOVED the ending (especially the very last scene)
Cons: Cant think of any.
Favorite Scene: My favorite scene was when Eddy (Moran) just lost all the money. I thought that scene was filmed perfectly because if I had lost all that money I think my vision would have been the same way Ritchie shot it.
Favorite Quote: “All right, son: roll them guns up, count the money, and put your seat belt on. ” Big Chris (Vinnie Jones)
My Grade: A-
My Thoughts: Recommended by my friend Kim. Before I go on let me tell you something about my friend Kim. He’s very picky with movies, so if he ever tells you to go watch a certain movie you know that movie will be good. Luckily, my theory was right because this movie was awesome. I was always a big fan of Guy Ritchie and loved his work in RockNRolla, Snatch, and Sherlock Holmes. I just love how his stories are pretty original and I love the way he shoots his film because its very different from other movies. With “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” it was no different because the movie was just very entertaining and very original. Its one of those movies where it has the ability to hold your attention for two hours. The reason why it does a great job at holding your attention is because of the story and characters. The story is one of those movies where everything comes together at the end but with Ritchie’s film it has more of a funny and clever ending. As for the characters, its hard not to love all of them. Everybody from Hatchet Harry to Big Chris (who was my favorite) are characters that are just memorable. Besides the characters and the story, the best thing about the movie (in my opinion) was the last scene of the movie. *SPOILER ALERT*. I really liked how Ritchie made the ending unpredictable because most of us probably the group of friends would end up with all the money but instead the cash went to the most unlikely person. Ritchie than tops that off with the last scene with the guy holding on to the valuable guns but has a cell phone in his mouth. He must now choose whether to drop the guns in the river to pick up the phone or pick up the guns and drop his phone into the river. I thought that scene was just pure genius and when they didnt show the decision I think that made me enjoy it a little bit more. Anyways, this was a great heist movie that was pure original and entertaining.  
Watch it, Rent it, or Skip it: Watch it. “Creative and original heist movie”
Lesson/Moral of the film: “Sometimes in the end everything will work out”
Interesting Facts:
Directorial debut by Guy Ritchie
Written by Guy Ritchie
Produced by Matthew Vaughn (X-Men First Class, Kick-Ass)
Vaughn and Ritchie also worked together in “Snatch”  and “Swept Away”
Film debut of Jason Statham and Vinnie Jones
Musician, Sting (Who played Eddy’s father, who owned the bar)’s wife was one of the Executive Producer
The scene where Nick the Greek breaks the glass coffee table was not in the original script. Ritchie added the scene after the incident happened while filming
On Vinnie Jone’s first day of shooting, he had just been released from Police custody for beating up his neighbor
Jason Statham, Jason Flemyng,  Vinnie Jones, and Guy Ritchie worked together in Ritchie’s next film “Snatch”
Jason Statham, Vinnie Jones, and Matthew Vaughn worked together in “Mean Machine”
Things I Learned:
Subtitles are your friend
People with money are stingy
Dont walk with a semiconscious girl and bag of fertilizer because people will think youre making drugs
Watch your language in front of a kid, that includes blasphemy
Someone leaving from a bar on fire is okay in England
A refreshing drink isn’t a cocktail.
Burning people’s feet is what robbers do in England
Losing half a million will make you barf
If you are going to rob your neighbor wear a mask
Guns are for shows, knives are for pros
Drug dealers should carry more than a air riffle
You cant point if you’re tied up
Cup of tea is important to British people
People hate traffic wardens
Dont offer juice to someone who screwed you over
Never mess with a man’s child
Know your friends friend number
Make sure your phone has battery
Box Office: 
Budget: 1.35 Million
Grossed Revenue: 25,297,569 Million
