In Time (2011)

Un film care se afla de mult timp in folderul meu cu filme de actiune din laptop, insa pe care l-am vazut de abia ieri si… la tv, pe HBO. Mama mea l-a vazut inaintea mea si mi-a povestit pe scurt despre ce e vorba si mi s-a parut interesant, asa ca am decis aseara sa-i aloc doua ore din viata mea (mai ales ca acesta a fost pentru mine un lazy weekend). Pe langa idee (oamenii nu mai imbatranesc dupa ce implinesc 25 de ani si plata se face pe baza de timp), mi-a placut foarte mult si distributia: protagonistii Justin Timberlake (Friends with Benefits, Bad Teacher si The Social Network), Amanda Seyfried (Les Miserables, Gone si Mean Girls) si Cillian Murphy (The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, The Dark Knight si Batman Begins) si Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory si Hancock), Olivia Wilde (The Change-Up si The O.C.), Matt Bomer (White Collar si Magic Mike) si Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike).

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!

 

 

 

Mean Girls (2004)

On Thursday, I was so bored at school that I brought my laptop and watched this movie with Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Midnight in Paris, Sherlock Holmes and The Notebook) and Amanda Seyfried (Gone). The film had a little comedy and romance in it, something like a Disney movie, but more kinky. I liked it because it shows the truth. Watch it if you want to understand what I’m talking about.

storyline via imdb: Raised in African bush country by her zoologist parents, Cady Heron thinks she knows about survival of the fittest. But the law of the jungle takes on a whole new meaning when the home-schooled 16-year-old enters public high school for the first time and encounters psychological warfare and unwritten social rules that teenage girls face today.
