Hitchcock

De mult urmaream site-ul CinemaCity ca sa vad cand va incepe sa ruleze. Cinefila cum sunt, ma pasioneaza foarte mult personalitatea lui Alfred Hitchcock, insa n-am avut niciodata curajul sa vad vreun film regizat de el: pur si simplu detest horror-urile. Evident, operele lui nu se compara cu cele din ziua de azi, de doi bani, scarboase si fara mesaj, ci sunt destul de profunde, urmarind clar motivatia de a ucide, care mi se pare fascinanta.

In filmul biografic Hitchcock cu o distributie excelenta: Anthony Hopkins (Legends of the Fall si The Silence of the Lambs), Scarlett Johansson (He’s Just Not That Into You, Vicky Cristina Barcelona si The Prestige) si Jessica Biel (New Year’s Eve, The A-Team, Valentine’s Day, The Illusionist si Elizabethtown) este surprins momentul din viata marelui regizor cand, lipsit de inspiratie, citeste romanul Psycho, care va deveni, cu multe sacrificii, cel mai cunoscut film al sau.

The Illusionist (2006)

On my mini unexpected school break I watched it because it has been recommended to me by many people. And it’s true: the movie is worth it! It has nothing to do with „The Prestige”  though it’s about love, magic and mystery too. Jessica Biel has a part in the film, but the most charming is still Edward Norton (and he has my fav name as well haha). I think the movie is a must see! Totally!

Storyline via imdb: Eisenheim is a magician in early 1900’s Vienna, who falls in love with a woman well above his social standing. When she becomes engaged to a Crown Prince, Eisenheim uses his powers to free her and undermine the stability of the royal house of Vienna.

Valentine’s Day (2010)

When I checked yesterday the tv program and saw: Valentine’s Day, HBO Comedy, 2 o’ clock, I decided that I have to watch it again. I saw it for the first time back in 2010 at the cinema with two friends. Because I loved it, I downloaded it as well and watched it with my mum; so this is the third time I see it. But really, who can say this is not a lovely movie? Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Lautner, Taylor Swift, Jamie Foxx, Julia Roberts, Emma Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Patrick Dempsey, Anne Hathaway and more. Seriously now.

Storyline via imdb: More than a dozen Angelenos navigate Valentine’s Day from early morning until midnight. Three couples awake together, but each relationship will sputter; are any worth saving? A grade-school boy wants flowers for his first true love; two high school seniors plan first-time sex at noon; a TV sports reporter gets the assignment to find romance in LA; a star quarterback contemplates his future; two strangers meet on a plane; grandparents, together for years, face a crisis; and, an „I Hate Valentine’s Day” dinner beckons the lonely and the lied to. Can Cupid finish his work by midnight?
