Life as We Know It (2010)

I don’t know if the story is very realistic, but still this movie is a nice romantic comedy, which I’ve seen twice. I’m sure most of you guys have watched it so please tell me what do you think!

storyline via imdb: Holly and Eric were set up on a blind date by their friends, Peter and Allison who are married. After Peter and Allison are killed in an accident, they learn that they have been named as the guardians to Peter and Allison’s daughter, Sophie. So they move into their house and try their best to honor their friends’ wishes. But raising a child puts a crimp on their style and they don’t exactly get along.

I’m the kind who sits up in his room

Well, I promised you guys a bigger post, so here it is! I’ve been thinking since summer to write it, but I have never had the mood until now. People who know me well, would describe me as obsessed or even crazy… in a good way (I hope). The thing about me is that I live in my own world; I fell in love with (lots of) movie characters and I make research, research and again research until I find everything about that man. People who know me better can say that I do the same thing in real life, but this is another topic that I’m not going to discuss here and now. So, coming back to the actual post, I’m gonna make a top of my favorite men in chronological order. And if I put a *, this means the obsession took more than a few weeks/months.

1. Christopher Uckermann* – From the band RBD; I started loving him in 2006 and I still like him a lot: I follow him on Twitter, I have photos of him on my phone, but of course it’s not the same like then. He is 25 now, so I liked him when he was just 19. I liked his talent (he can play the guitar, the drums; he also sings and acts) and his looks.

2. Heath Ledger* – I can say about him that he was my greatest obsession ever. I read tons of articles and I’ve seen documentaries on TV about him , but unfortunately, he passed away before me knowing so much stuff about him. I first saw him in The Dark Knight as the Joker, where he blowed minds and kicked asses and next were Casanova, 10 things I hate about you and others. I love-love-love his acting, he was extremely talented: that’s why he received an Oscar and a Golden Globe award. I love his Australian accent, his smile and his looks.

3. Robert Pattinson* – first of all, I loved the character who made him famous: Edward Cullen. Twilight is the first book that I read without stopping in two days because that vampire was so romantic, loving and protective. It was impossible for me to resist him as it was for Bella. From the whole saga I like the most the first movie/book. Maybe the impact was bigger at the beginning or maybe volume one is better. I don’t know and I don’t care. And we have to admit that Robert looked perfectly gorgeous in 2008. Then I saw him in Remember Me, another romantic movie, so yeah… Now I’m very looking forward to seeing him in Bel Ami. I read that book especially for him and I also bought a book with his biography.

4. Taylor Lautner – I know it’s a little bit awkward to love so much two different characters that are also enemies, but I can’t help myself. Taylor is younger and hotter than Robert. In the book I totally prefer Edward, because he has the most amazing personality ever, but on the screen Taylor looks better. Than I saw him in Valentine’s Day and in Abduction… that abs, that arms, that face… so so so hot!

5. Diego Forlan – well, yeah, a football player. It had to be a football player in my list too! I first „met” him when he was playing for Uruguay in the world cup 2010. His nickname was „the blonde angel of Uruguay” which is so damn true! Just looking at his face and you can say: YES, THIS IS A GOOD MAN! And I’m not speaking just metaphorically… I typed his name on we♥it and I hardly managed to pick a photo with him with clothes on.

6. Jim Morrison – I started to like him in July 2010: after visiting his grave in Paris I documented myself, listened to some of The Doors songs and fell in love with his black leather pants, his mentality, his lyrics and his cute curly hair. I’ve seen a movie about him with Val Kilmer and I still have a documentary called When You’re Strange in my laptop.

7.  Ian Somerhalder* – Damon, Damon, Damon Salvatore. Man, I still love him so! I love Ian and I love Damon, though they are very different persons, but if I had to choose, I’d go with Damon. Damon is sarcastic, strong, charming and „totally hot”; Ian is shy, kind-hearted and helpful. Damon drives me crazy and I’m craving to see him with Elena; I want so badly him to have a serious relationship, not just one night stands. After Heath, this man I love the most now. Unfortunately, The Vampire Diaries is the only movie I’ve ever seen with Ian, but soon I’m gonna download Lost and other films with him.

8. Richard Armitage – loved his character in BBC’s series Robin Hood where he played bad boy Guy of Gisborne. I loved the passion in him, his height, his British accent and his dark black hair.

9. Tom Hardy – I know him since 2009 when I saw him as Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights. Then I heard he is going to play Bane, the villain, in Christopher Nolan’s last Batman movie. And in February this year I saw This means war where he completely won me, followed by Rocknrolla. I think he is more sexy than beautiful.

10. Alexander Skarsgård* – Eric in True Blood, so this is my latest obsession. All I know about him in real life is that he is Swedish, he is 194 cm tall, he is sarcastic, his English has no accent and he doesn’t speak that much. I love Eric’s feelings for Sookie, Eric’s way of talking and thinking.

Basicaly, this is my top 10. I also had small crushes (a couple of days) on Ryan Gosling from Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Notebook and Blue Valentine, Logan Lerman from The Three Musketeers, Stephen Moyer from True Blood, Brad Pitt from The Strange Case of Benjamin Button, Troy, Legends of the fall and Interview with the Vampire, Rupert Grint from Harry Potter, Ashton Kutcher from No strings attached, Killers, Valentine’s Day, Spread and What Happens in Vegas, Ed Westwick from Gossip Girl and J. Edgar, Colin Firth from Pride and Prejudice and Leonardo Dicaprio from J. Edgar, Inception, Shutter Island, Blood Diamond and The Departed.

My fingers and back hurt so I’m gonna end now, before you will think I’m a total freak. Unless you don’t think that already. Thank you for reading!

Blue Valentine (2010)

Last week on Monday I had no power, so I wasn’t able to watch my online TV series. That’s why I decided to see a movie that I had on my laptop. I chose a drama, Blue Valentine with Heath Ledger’s ex-wife, Michelle Williams, and gorgeous Ryan Gosling. I liked the idea of the film (it was nominated for Oscar), the love story, but I didn’t like the ending. Again.

storyline via imdb: Dean Pereira and Cindy Heller Pereira are a young, working class married couple – Dean currently working as a painter, and Cindy working as a nurse in a medical clinic – with a young daughter named Frankie. Despite their relatively tender ages, they are both ravaged by the life they’ve eked out together and by the experiences they’ve had leading into their marriage. Dean, a high school drop out, comes from a broken home, where he never really had a mother figure. He never saw himself getting married or having a family despite falling in love at first sight with Cindy. He doesn’t have any professional ambition beyond his current work – which he enjoys since he feels he can knock off a beer at 8 o’clock in the morning without it affecting his work – although Cindy believes he has so much more potential in life. Cindy also comes from a dysfunctional family, with her own mother and father not setting an example of a harmonious married or family life…

How do you know?

Last week(end) I was chilling home so I decided to watch a few movies. Thanks to the Cinemagia App, I discovered there are a few nice movies on TV too; so I set the alarm for me to know when they start. „How do you know?” with Reese Witherspoon (Water for elephants, Vanity Fair and Legally Blonde), Paul Rudd (Knocked up and Friends), Owen Wilson (Midnight in Paris and Marley and Me) and Jack Nicholson (The Departed and As good as it gets) was a romance/comedy; a cheap one, but enjoyable as well.

Storyline via imdb: Star softball player, Lisa, has just been cut from the national team; Scholarly business man, George, has just been indicted from his father’s company. With everything that they know in their lives taken from them, Lisa and George attempt to find romance. Lisa’s potential boyfriend, Matty, however, is as clueless and perpetually single as they come, and George’s girlfriend just dumped him. A chance hook-up through mutual friends, Lisa and George may be able to form a friendship, or more, that can help them climb out of the piles of lemons that life has handed to them.

Tangled

On Saturday I watched two movies and a series. One of the movies is this cartoon, Tangled, about Rapunzel. I liked the movie (it was a little bit boring though) and some of the scenes were absolutely hilarious! Like the ones with the white horse. Genius, really! If you are a fan of Disney movies, watch this film.

Storyline via imdb: After receiving the healing powers from a magical flower, the baby Princess Rapunzel is kidnapped from the palace in the middle of the night by Mother Gothel. Mother Gothel knows that the flower’s magical powers are now growing within the golden hair of Rapunzel, and to stay young, she must lock Rapunzel in her hidden tower. Rapunzel is now a teenager and her hair has grown to a length of 70-feet. The beautiful Rapunzel has been in the tower her entire life, and she is curious of the outside world. One day, the bandit Flynn Ryder scales the tower and is taken captive by Rapunzel. Rapunzel strikes a deal with the charming thief to act as her guide to travel to the place where the floating lights come from that she has seen every year on her birthday. Rapunzel is about to have the most exciting and magnificent journey of her life.
