Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011)

Impreuna cu Ice Age si Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda este singura serie de filme de desene animate Disney pe care o mai urmaresc :D Intr-una din zilele de Craciun, HBO Comedy a difuzat partea a 2-a a povestii ursuletului panda Po, care, prin ambitia si inocenta lui reuseste de fiecare data sa invinga raul. Din pacate, a fost dublat in romana, dar tot foarte comic mi s-a parut. In original se intalnesc vocile Angelinei Jolie (The Turist, Salt, Wanted si Mr. & Mrs. Smith), a lui Dustin Hoffman (Tootsie si The Graduate), Gary Oldman (Batman Trilogy si Harry Potter) si Jackie Chan.

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.

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!

The Dark Knight

Este unul din filmele mele preferate. Efectiv il ador pe Heath Ledger, iar prestatia lui este excelenta. Pentru ea a luat un Golden Globe si un Oscar.

O urmare a hitului de acţiune Batman Begins, Cavalerul negru îi reuneşte pe regizorul Christopher Nolan şi pe starul Christian Bale, care reia în această nouă peliculă rolul lui Bruce Wayne/Batman. Cu ajutorul locotenentului Jim Gordon şi a hotărâtului procuror districtual, Harvey Dent, Batman începe lupta împotriva crimei organizate din Gotham City pentru a o strârpi definitiv. Iniţial, triumviratul se dovedeşte a fi eficient, dar în curând cei trei devin ţinta unui geniu al răului, cunoscut sub numele de Joker, care aruncă oraşul în anarhie, forţându-l pe Cavalerul negru să încalce fragila graniţă dintre erou şi răzbunător.

Heath Ledger (Brokeback Mountain), nominalizat la premiul Academiei, îl întruchipează pe arhetipul răului, The Joker, iar Aaron Eckhart îl interpretează pe procurorul Harvey Dent. Maggie Gyllenhaal se alatură şi ea distribuţiei în rolul lui Rachel Dawes. În Cavalerul negru revin mulţi actori din Batman Begins, cum ar fi Gary Oldman, în rolul locotenentului Jim Gordon; Michael Caine, câştigătorul premiului Oscar (The Cider House Rules) în rolul lui Alfred, şi premiatul cu Oscar, Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby) în rolul lui Lucius Fox.
