Man of Steel

Fiind cu scoala pe ultima suta de metri, am reusit sa merg in timpul saptamanii (acum doua saptamani) la cinema, la avanpremiera Man of Steel cu prietena mea cea mai buna. Eram cu ochii pe acest film de mult timp, chiar de cand au inceput sa apara trailerele. Mi-a atras atentia ca e un nou film cu super eroi produs de preferatul meu, Christopher Nolan. Cum trilogia Batman mi-a schimbat viata, nu puteam sa nu fiu si eu printre zecile de spectatori care au umplut sala de cinema. Si nu regret nicio secunda ca m-am dus pentru ca filmul mi-a placut la nebunie! Britanicul Henry Cavill (actorul preferat al Doinei Ciobanu se pare) este nou pentru mine, insa il voi avea in vedere de acum, caci tipul e foarte talentat si sa nu ignoram faptul ca arata atat de bine! A facut un rol minunat: bland, uman, moral, iubitor si rational. Daca sunteti fani ai benzilor desenate si ai supereroilor, va recomand sa va duceti sa-l vedeti imediat in 3D. A avut de toate: actiune, suspans, dragoste, umor, poate putin cam mult SF si violenta pentru gustul meu, dar in final, filmul s-a inscris printre preferatele mele.

P.S.: Russel Crowe (Les Miserables) e si el pe acolo! :D


Don’t ask me, I’ll never tell

Hello, blog! I had another post in mind for today, but… Sorry for the bad quality of the photos. It’s not because of my phone’s camera, but the darkness outside. Since I’ve received my smart phone, I’m too lazy to pull myself together and take proper pictures with the FujiFilm, you know? I’ve bought this T-shirt from a friend, so yeah, it’s vintage, but I couldn’t resist! I’ve been craving a Superman T-shirt for ages and I still want a Batman one :D Yesterday I had a lovely day: I restarted studying German, which I’ll continue after I finish this, I read, I went to the gym, met a friend for dinner and watched El Clasico, Real Madrid – Barcelona. I cried of happiness when Cristiano Ronaldo scored the second goal, but I was pissed when Mesut Özil was replaced by Luka Modric, although he seems nice. He’s also a midfielder and if this means I’ll see my baby rarely, then screw the Croatian! All in all, welcome to Madrid :D They deserved to win the super cup!

The Dark Knight Rises

WARNING: This article is very long and contains spoilers!

Finally!!!! After four years of waiting for this sequel, I’ve finally seen it eight days ago. And it was worth the waiting. Like I said in the post where I presented my Spiderman review, I love superheroes, but Chris Nolan’s Batman movies aren’t just cheap films with fights. They are psychological and deep. Have you seen other movies directed by Christopher Nolan, like The Prestige or Inception? If the answer is yes, you’ve got to know what I’m talking about here. Four years ago, I simply loved the Joker. And no, I had no idea about Heath Ledger, the fact that he was dead or stuff. He was brilliant; I realized it even if I was 12 years old. And I cried when I found out that he was just 28 when he died. I’ve made an obsession for him and The Dark Knight became my favorite movie ever (that’s why I’ve seen it more than 25 times haha).

2008 was also the year when I discovered my thing for cinematography and because of my passional way of being, I’ve had several small crushes on different actors, like Tom Hardy (Rocknrolla, Inception, This means war), when I saw him in 2009 in Wuthering Heights – television movie. Back then he was no famous actor, but now his time has come and he deserves it because he is extraordinary talented. In the end of The Dark Knight, the Joker doesn’t die: he’s just caught by the SWAT teams; so I guessed Christopher Nolan wanted to make a sequel also with Joker. But six months before the premiere, Heath Ledger was found dead in his apartment in New York City. So Chris had to choose another villain: Bane. And who else to play Bane, but Tom Hardy?! He did a great job out of his part and I think everybody loved it. Christian Bale (The Prestige, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and Public Enemies) was as usual the perfect Batman and Bruce Wayne (sorry George Clooney and Val Kilmer). I had to admit that at first, I wasn’t very thrilled about Anne Hathaway (Brokeback Mountain, The Devil Wears Prada, Becoming Jane and Valentine’s Day) playing Selina Kyle, but even I, as a girl, have to face the truth: she was a very sexy and charming Catwoman. I was very looking forward to seeing Marion Cotillard (Public Enemies, Nine, Inception and Midnight in Paris), but in the end I was very disappointed to learn that she was the brain behind the evil plan and not Bane. However, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (10 Things I Hate About You, 500 Days of Summer and Inception) didn’t let me down. I burst into tears when a woman called him Robin in the end of the film. The rest of the cast was pretty great: Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Michael Cane, Daniel Sunjata, Liam Neeson and Cillian Murphy.

Well… a masterpiece indeed :) I’ve seen in twice, once in IMAX and I’d do it again! Hope this was helpful and enjoyable and thank you for reading!

storyline via imdb: Despite his tarnished reputation after the events of The Dark Knight, in which he took the rap for Dent’s crimes, Batman feels compelled to intervene to assist the city and its police force which is struggling to cope with Bane’s plans to destroy the city.

Counting the days

Good afternoon, readers! Usually, when I get excited, I post something here, so this will be another movie article. Can you guess? Well, some might. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES WILL BE IN CINEMAS VERY VERY SOON! ONLY 9 DAYS!!!! Unfortunately, July, 20th is the day I’m leaving on holidays, but about this later. But I’ll watch the movie as soon as I return! This is 100% sure! The last trailer of TDKR was showed yesterday at the ComicCon event and it contains some images of the Joker. How nice of them to include him again :) Are you going to see the epic ending?

New The Dark Knight Rises Trailer

OmG, I know this is the second movie post in a row, but I can’t help myself: I’m freaking out! The second trailer for The Dark Knight Rises this summer was realised! The date we’re gonna watch this amazing movie is July, 20th. Be sure I’ll be the first one to book my seat! And the biggest surprise is:… well, you can check it for yourselves (Romanian people, be proud!!!).

The cast is so great, I’m melting here: Tom Hardy, Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Michael Cane, Marion Cotillard and Anne Hathaway. At first, I thought Levitt is going to play Robin’s part, but it seems that I’m wrong; I’m sure Bane (Tom Hardy) will be a brilliant villain (not better than the Joker though). From the video below you can see that he destroys a plane during its flight, he frees the prisoners from a prison and he has a great line: when Wayne asks him why he didn’t kill him, Bane answers: „Your punishment must be more severe.” Isn’t that marvelous? :D Can’t wait!
