Great Gatsby

La aproape o saptamana dupa lansarea oficiala, am mers si eu insotita de cea mai buna prietena sa vad mult asteptatul film dupa cartea lui  F. Scott Fitzgerald in 3D. Ca sa fiu sincera, nu inteleg necesitatea filmarii in 3D, nefiind o animatie sau un thriller. Se barfea ca in sfarsit munca lui Leo DiCaprio va fi rasplatita printr-un premiu Oscar, insa, dupa parerea mea, nu il merita nici acum. Nu ma intelegeti gresit, imi place Leo la nebunie si nu numai din cauza ca este extraordinar de frumos si nici nu pot sa mint spunand ca a jucat rolul lui Jay Gatsby prost, insa nu este ceva iesit din comun. Ce m-a impresionat pana la lacrimi este cat de bine a reusit sa infatiseze bunatatea, politetea si optimismul personajului principal.

Auzind inca din vara lui 2012 despre film, am citit mai intai romanul, iar adaptarea grandioasa foloseste niste costume superbe, semnate Prada, repetitive intr-un fel, insa neobisnuite (cat de bine ii sta lui Leo in alb?!). Am citit comentarii cum ca muzica folosita pentru coloana sonora a filmului, il face de zece ori mai bun. Nu as exagera asa, insa sunt de acord ca melodiile Lanei del Rey, The XX, Florence + the Machine, ale lui Gotye si ale celorlalti creaza dependenta.

 

Les Miserables

Nu obisnuiesc sa merg in timpul saptamanii la cinema, dar fiind foarte ocupata in perioada asta in weekend-uri, am decis ieri ca dupa ore sa merg impreuna cu doua prietene sa vedem mult asteptatul si laudatul musical ,,Les Miserables”. Au fost trei ore superbe, l-as revedea oricand cu placere si chiar m-a facut sa ma gandesc serios sa citesc cele 1500 de pagini ale lui Victor Hugo. Trebuie sa recunosc ca rar a mai existat ceva care sa ma emotioneze atat de tare ca povestea lui Jean Valjean: am plans trei ore aproape fara oprire. Ma intreb daca poate fi viata intr-adevar atat de cruda cu o singura persoana… Distributia, de exceptie de altfel, impreuna cu muzica, jocul actoricesc si ideile fac ca acest film sa merite cele 8 nominalizari la Oscar pe care le-a primit. Cel mai mult se remarca Hugh Jackman (The Prestige), dar nici restul nu este mai prejos: Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises, Love and Other Drugs, Alice in Wonderland, Valentine’s Day, Becoming Jane, The Devil Wears Prada si Brokeback Mountain), Amanda Seyfried (Gone si Mean Girls), Sacha Baron Cohen si Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland si Sweeney Todd). Este un film pe care-l recomand din toata inima pentru oricine. Se pare ca sfarsitul anului 2012 si inceputul anului 2013 este plin de ecranizari de romane: Anna Karenina, Marile Sperante, urmand Marele Gatsby.

The Vow

Rachel McAdams (Mean Girls, The Notebook, Sherlock Holmes and Midnight in Paris) and Channing Tatum (Public Enemies and Magic Mike) are on my list of favorite actors. This Friday I was tired of the same series, so I decided to watch a movie instead. I have dozens of movies in my computer, but I finally picked this romantic drama and I don’t regret it. A must see for lachrymatory lovers.

storyline via imdb: Leo and Paige are a couple who just got married. After an accident, Paige is left unconscious, and when she awakes she doesn’t remember Leo. Her parents, whom she hasn’t seen since she and Leo got together, come and visit her. She can’t believe that she hasn’t seen them for such a long time. Leo wants to bring her home with him but her parents want her to go with them. She goes with Leo but when she doesn’t recognize anything, she goes to her parents. And she wonders why did she cut off contact with her family. She also runs into her ex and wonders why they broke up. Leo tries to win her back by courting her again.

P.S.: I’m sorry for not posting this week: I was involved in the second part of the interchange with Italy, so I had no time to breath. Atm I’m waiting to receive all the pictures, because there are lots! Oh, and yeah, I have to recover a week of school, do my homework and stuff and the best part of all this is that I’m sick as fuck. But I’m still excited about the El Clasico tonight! Yey!

 

 

 

Magic Mike

Yesterday I went with the girls to the cinema to watch this drama with Channing Tatum (Public Enemies), Matthew McConaughey (Ghosts of Girlfriends Past), Alex Pettyfer and Joe Manganiello (What to expect when you’re expecting and True Blood). The movie’s about some strippers… I don’t really see the exact point of the film, to be honest and it was a little bit boring and predictable, but, hey! it was so worth the money: the guys were so damn hot! If you’re a dude, it’s better not to watch this. Just saying…

Mike, an experienced stripper, takes a younger performer called The Kid under his wing and schools him in the arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money.

The Raven

When I saw the trailer of this movie I said to myself instantaneous that I HAVE to watch it. This was in March this year, but I didn’t manage to see it in the theater because of a busy period then. So I downloaded it and watched it last week with my mum. Was really good: a drama/mystery/thriller with John Cusack and Luke Evans ( The Three Musketeers).

storyline via imdb: This movie is set in the mid 1800s and involves Edgar Allan Poe, the poet. A serial killer is on the loose and murdering people using Poe’s descriptions from his published poems. So Poe teams up with Detective Fields, a Baltimore policeman to try and catch the killer by using his knowledge of the descriptions. Even though the poems are fictional, they start to become reality and the killer is a step ahead of them. Then it takes on a personal note as Poe’s lover becomes a target. Will they stop the killer in time?
