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.

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!

Congrats Katy Perry, Emma Stone, Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, Maroon 5, Rihanna, Eminem, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Nina Dobrev, Hugh Jackman, Morgan Freeman, Adam Sandler, Johnny Depp and Ryan Reynolds. You are great actors/singers! Unfortunately TVD or Gossip Girl were just nominated, but there were Pretty Little Liars and Harry Potter so… yeah.

OMFG, OMFG!

Oh my God, I’m freaking out here! Finally the trailer for The Dark Knight Rises is available! I just can’t believe I have to wait seven months to watch the movie, but be sure I’ll be the first one. Nobody on Earth is more addicted to this story as I am. Of course, the absence of Heath Ledger is very regretted, but Bale (The Prestige and Public Enemies), Hardy (Wuthering Heights and Inception), Levitt (500 days of summer, Inception and 10 things I hate about you), Oldman (Harry Potter), Caine (Jack the ripper), Hathaway (Love and other drugs, Alice in wonderland, Valentine’s day, The devil wears prada and Brokeback Mountain), Cotillard (Midnight in Paris, Inception, Nine and Public Enemies) and Freeman (Wanted)… Fuck yea!!!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

Yesterday I went with six friends to the cinema to watch the „Grand Finale” of the Harry Potter movie. I read all the books and the movie was really great, as the rest. I expected me to cry a lot, but it didn’t happen at all. I loved it when Ron and Hermione kissed and that part when Harry finds out the truth about Snape’s feelings for Lily (also my favorite part of the book). So so sweet!

Storyline via imdb (as usual): The final chapter begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione continue their quest of finding and destroying the Dark Lord’s three remaining Horcruxes, the magical items responsible for his immortality. But as the mystical Deathly Hallows are uncovered and Voldemort finds out about their mission, the biggest battle begins and life as they know it will never be the same again.

The cast is really wonderful: beside Daniel RadcliffeRupert Grint (love him!) and Emma Watson, there are Ralph Fiennes (one of mum’s favorite actors) as Voldemort, Michael Gambon as Dumbledore, Alan Rickman as Snape (I love the actor and also the character :D), Helena Bonham Carter (she acts great!) as Bellatrix Lestrange, Tom Felton as Draco Malfoy (he’s so hot!), Maggie Smith as Minerva McGonagall, Emma Thompson as Sybil Trelawney and Gary Oldman as Sirius Black.

Translation: Ieri am fost cu sase prieteni la cinema sa vedem ,,marele final” al filmului Harry Potter. Am citit toate cartile si filmul a fost chiar grozav, ca si restul. M-am asteptat sa plang mult, dar nu s-a intamplat deloc. Mi-a placut la nebunie cand Ron si Hermione se saruta si partea in care Harry afla adevarul despre sentimentele lui Plesneala pentru Lily (e si partea mea preferata din carte). Atat de dulce! Povestea de pe imdb (ca de obicei): Ultimul capitol incepe cu Harry, Ron si Hermione continuand cautarea si distrugerea celor trei Horcruxuri ale Lordului Intunecat ramase, obiecte magice responsabile pentru nemurirea lui. Dar in timp ce misticele Talismane ale Morţii sunt descoperite şi Voldemort afla despre misiunea celor trei, cea mai mare bătălie începe şi viaţa aşa cum o ştiu ei nu va mai fi niciodată la fel. Distributia e chiar minunata: alaturi de Daniel RadcliffeRupert Grint (il iubesc!) si Emma Watson, sunt Ralph Fiennes (unul dintre actorii preferati ai mamei) ca Voldemort, Michael Gambon ca Dumbledore, Alan Rickman ca Plesneala (iubesc si actorul si personajul!), Helena Bonham Carter (joaca grozav!) ca Bellatrix Lestrange, Tom Felton ca Draco Reacredinta (e atat de sexy!), Maggie Smith ca Minerva McGonagall, Emma Thompson ca Sybil Trelawney si Gary Oldman ca Sirius Black.
