From now on some of the stuff here will be post for friends only.
Drop me a line if you want to join ;)

No longer friends-only. I fail to see the reason since I've realized I don't post anything personal here, and can't even remember ever f-locking something. :)

Dear, Fringe...


...Please, please, be a little less awesome. I'm truly afraid my poor, little heart cannot take so much of this constant awesomeness you always deliver. So, be so nice as to kindly consider this humble request.

Yours faithfully; always,
- Me.

Woke up all excited to watch Fringe... Peter was *finally* returning... I had been expecting and anticipating this episode ALL week... Went ahead with eagerness to find a download link... A smile playing on my lips... Then... Found out some bloody baseball game was aired instead and the episode of Fringe got preempted... WHAT THE F***?!?!?!

YES! I have just jumped on the bandwagon...
Killed the whole Season 1 in one freakin' day. It's good. Very good... And highly addictive! :)


And now all I want to do is bitch-slap a Lannister...
...Preferably Joffrey Baratheon Lannister :/

You know what? This is just a simple post to commend the lovely Laura Linney (my favourite actress alive) on her brilliance, "amazingness" and incomparable talent and acting skills. I've just finished watching the last couple of episodes of the big C's season 2 and... you merely blow me away, lady! And I would like to thank you for gracing us with your presence on TV nowadays.


That's all that I really wanted to say.


Cheers! ;)

How long have you had your best friend?

Well, actually I have three best friends and I've known all of them since birth. So, going on 26 years now. We lived in the same building for many years and our mothers were friends. Even after moving to different cities we still remain the best of friends. Making the effort to travel back and forth whenever we can to visit each other. Every get together is like we've never parted at all: best friends :)

7/10 *******

Plot: After a bleak childhood, Jane Eyre goes out into the world to become a governess. As she lives happily in her new position at Thornfield Hall, she meets the dark, cold, and abrupt master of the house, Mr. Rochester. Jane and her employer grow close in friendship and she soon finds herself falling in love with him. Happiness seems to have found Jane at last, but could Mr. Rochester's terrible secret be about to destroy it forever?

Finally watched it! I waited so long... Once again my bloody cinema didn't showcase the film. Shocker! Had to find it somewhere else. Anyhow, it's Jane Eyre... They would have to seriously screw up for me not to like it. I love the book and they did some justice with this version. Is it my favourite version? No. Did it feel a bit rushed? Yes. Did I miss some favourite bits from the book that didn't make the cut? Yes. But, was it a nice film and decent homage? Yes, indeed. Great cinematography, beautiful score, nice directing and competent acting. However, the BBC miniseries with Ruth Wilson is still my favourite (and she's also my absolute favourite Jane Eyre).

More after the cut...Collapse )

Just watched the pre-air pilot of the only new series I'm thinking about adding to my viewing-list: New Girl. What can I say? I'm a huge sucker for Deschanel; soooo, I had to give it a chance. After watching it my verdict is: I like it. Do I LOVE it? No. Not yet anyhow. Do I think I may love it eventually? Probably. If they try to tone it down a notch on the extra cheesy comedy side it will be of great help. Just let Jess be her "adorkable" self without pushing so hard, you writer guys/girls. She can drive this home without the overly forced shenanigans. Trust me on that.

Another thing... I just caught wind of this (I know, I'm *extremely* late to the mocking party): there's a Glee film out there. Yes, a freakin' Glee FILM. And in 3D no less! I had to stop by the newsstand and do a double take when I saw the headline of the old magazine. A film? Seriously, FOX? How greedy are you to keep ripping off these poor tweens and kids because of their naïveté? I think someone should ring Seth and Amy to do a Really?! segment on this shit. I mean, does it even have a plot? Or is it a bunch of recicled scenes from the show? Jesus... where are we? Plus, how much do you want to bet me that this "remarkable" piece of cinematic history will be picked up by my town's cinema to showcase? *shakes head*

Why do I let these films pile up? *shakes head* I know why... Besides the fact that LJ has been a little bitch these past few days I do tend to procrastinate a lot. Oh well... bear with the tiny reviews. If anyone wants more depth just ask in the comments and I'll try to do better :D

okuribito (2008)+


6/10 ******

Plot: A newly unemployed cellist takes a job preparing the dead for funerals.

Beautiful, touching, quirky and with a heavy sense of "decency" to it. Just my cup of tea. Some bits are terribly slow though. Otherwise would be a 7 or 8.

red riding hood (2011)+


3/10 ***

Plot: Set in a medieval village that is haunted by a werewolf, a young girl falls for an orphaned woodcutter, much to her family's displeasure.

What an uninteresting, clichéd, all-around awful mess!

7/10 *******

Plot: In Madrid, the orphan sisters Irene, Ana and Maite are raised by their austere aunt Paulina together with their mute and crippled grandmother after the death of their mother and their military father Anselmo. Ana is a melancholic girl, fascinated by death, after seeing her mother having a painful death and her father dead in bed.

Amazing (and perhaps eerie) portrait of childhood, a time that in itself is already quite fascinating. The story is intriguing and the performances are superb, especially the little girl's. The only trouble I had with this film was that the song "Porque Te Vas" got stuck in my head for days, and now -- writing this review -- the little pain-in-the-ass tune found its way back. Great!

biutiful (2010)+


7/10 *******

Plot: Uxbal, single father of two children, finds his life in chaos as he is forced to deal with his life in order to escape the heat of crime in underground Barcelona, to break with the love for the divorced, manic depressive, abusive mother of his children and to regain spiritual insight in his life as he is diagnosed with terminal cancer.

A nicely told tale of hardship. I'm a bit biased to say, since Iñárritu is one of my favourite directors/screenwriters, but this film is totally worthy of a watch. Bardem is awesome in it as well. A fantastic story all around.

More films...Collapse )

Finally started (and finished) watching Damages! Woot, woot! Like I promised I would do here. Man, that show is addictive... Can't wait for next season. Sidenote: how awesome is Close/Byrne, the pairing? The ladies rule/rock :D
