Monte Carlo (2011)

On my birthday, my best friend came over, we ordered in and watched this cute romantic comedy with Selena Gomez (Wizards of Waverly Place and Another Cinderella Story), Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl and Date Night) and Katie Cassidy (Gossip Girl and Taken). When you see in the cast Selena Gomez’s name, you can guess that the movie is Disney alike. And you are right if you think this way! However, the film was very nice, with a happy ending and the boys were really adorable!

storyline via imdb: A young woman, her uptight step sister and her best friend use their savings for a long anticipated dream trip to Paris, which turns out to be a big disappointment. When they decide to take a break from their lousy tour and duck into the lobby of a luxury hotel, one of them is mistaken for a spoiled British heiress. Before they get the chance to reveal their true identities they are wrapped up in misadventures during a vacation to Monte Carlo instead.

Taken 2

Yesterday me and my best friend, Flavia, took advantage of some spare time and went to CinemaCity to watch the latest Liam Neeson movie. I remember when I watched on TV Taken 1 and how I loved it, so the second part was a must for me. And to be honest, when I checked the film list, I didn’t see any other one to be worth spending the time and the money. So, if you’re a fan of action movies, you shouldn’t miss this one!

storyline via imdb: Bryan Mills, the former CIA man who rescued his daughter Kim from some Albanian human traffickers, is being targeted by the families of the men he killed. When he goes to Istanbul on a job, he invites Kim and her mother, Leonor, whose marriage is on the rocks to join him. When the Albanians learn of this they try to grab them. They get Bryan and Leonor, he warns Kim and she evades them. Later he calls Kim to tell her to go to the Embassy but she insists that he let her help them. Bryan tells her to get his case which is filled with weapons and with that, she finds them and gives him a weapon. He escapes and plans to come back for Leonor but they are too many and is unable to save Leonor. So he relies on his memory to find her.

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.

LOL

I’ve been wanting to post about this movie for a while now, because I saw it a week ago or something, but I was very busy. Now I’m watching Barcelona – Real Madrid, but it’s the break (0-0), so yeah. This romantic comedy with Miley Cyrus (The Last Song and Hannah Montana: The Movie), Ashley Greene (The Twilight Saga) and Demi Moore was very nice and inspiring – with happy ending. It’s about true love at a young age, friendship between a mother and her daughter and more.

storyline via imdb: In a world connected by YouTube, iTunes, and Facebook, Lola and her friends navigate the peer pressures of high school romance and friendship while dodging their sometimes overbearing and confused parents. When Lola’s mom, Anne, „accidentally” reads her teenage daughter’s racy journal, she realizes just how wide their communication gap has grown. Through hilarious and heartfelt moments between mother and daughter, LOL is a fresh coming-of-age story for modern times.
