Here is a succinct and pictorial review of Breaking Dawn part 2 which contains spoilers. Warning for Bellas... and all those who love her are advised not to open this.






Bella wins the hearts of the viewers by protecting Bambi


Bambi, why didn't you kick her up the... ?


Bella loves the letter 'e' and goes berserk when people don't use it.
Dearest Bella: I am not amused. At all. It would seem great white sharks, wendigos and zombies are not enough for you, so prepare yourself.

Spoilers for the deleted final scene: * Benjamin shows up at the meadow. Enraged at Bella, he causes a chasm in the earth into which the pointy, whey-faced wisp of a trampire falls screaming to her fiery death. Edward seeks succor in Jake. Renesmee goes to Scotland in search of her real father, the Loch Ness monster (turns out the Monster was taking his summer vacation at a resort off the coast of Brazil, where he met Bella. One thing led to another and that is why Bella got so mad at Jacob; unwittingly, the wolf stumbled upon the truth) Note: The imprint fails when it deals with monsters' daughters (by monster, I don't mean Scottish Nessie)*

Pick a number and I'll answer the question.
1 - Your current OTP
2 - A pairing you initially didn’t consider but someone changed your mind
3 - A pairing you have never liked and probably never will
............

I asked myself the questions, and below are the multilingual answers:


1. Your current OTP... )

This clip is from 'Ice castles,' which was a movie from '78. I love the way she pirouettes and how she skates to the soaring music. It's enchanting.

The theme was written by Marvin Hamlisch who also composed 'The way we were' and 'The sting.' Sadly, Mr Hamlisch passed away today.

... I've listened 20 times today :)

This is a great song. I first heard it a few days ago on the Cloud Atlas trailer. A little youtube research led me to the original artist. It's M83 by Outro.

Cloud Atlas is a film by the Wachowskis, the people behind the Matrix trilogy. I really liked those movies; in fact, I could write fanfic about it but I haven't felt compelled to :) Their new movie - judging by the trailer - looks interesting. It's got Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, and Hugo Weaving.

Warning for some violence in the video.

.... which I ganked and adapted from my friend [livejournal.com profile] lijahlover


A scene you really wanted to be in the movies, but wasn't.


For Twilight






For Harry Potter

This is a video I made with footage from Cabaret, Wizard of Oz and New York, New York, set to Liza Minnelli singing 'I believe in music.' I love the song, it reflects my feelings about music :)

and all of heaven we have below"

I just hate the way certain TV shows and movies butcher biology. Case in point, Prometheus.


Prometheus SPOILERS and lolcats... )


herumtreiber: (cartoon)
Off the top of my head, I can think of a few movie love themes I like very much: 'As time goes by' from Casablanca, 'The way we were', and 'Can you read my mind' from the first Superman movie. The song Nino Rota wrote for Zeffirelli's 'Romeo and Juliet' is my favorite at the moment, though.

I love this scene; when the camera pans around the circle of spectators I can easily picture that the actors, clad with their rich gowns and headgear, have just stepped out from a painting by Caravaggio.

When I made this video, I found out there are two versions of this song in Italian. Elsa Morante wrote the lyrics for this one.


herumtreiber: (bw!Jake)
My good friend [livejournal.com profile] intimisky gave me the letter 'J'


1. Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each. The characters can be from books, movies, or TV shows.
2. If you want me to give you a letter, say so.


My favorite characters whose names begin with J:



Joan of Arc

In the middle of the longest war in Western history, France is on its knees; the countryside ravaged and Paris occupied. The English king has been crowned in Paris. What powerful nobleman will save the country?

In a historical twist that is the stuff of legends, it is a peasant girl who will rise to the occasion. Armed with her faith and visions, Joan of Arc leads an army that raises the siege of Orléans and inspires her countrymen. Her figure shines through the centuries.






Jacob Black

He's passionate, intense and resourceful. He's stubborn, determined to win his love. At first I hoped Bella would choose him, but I soon came to realize she wouldn't. Bella has all the depth of a puddle of rain after a five-minute drizzle.

Doesn't matter though, it's far, far more interesting to write about Edward and Jake getting together. Plotting ways to do Bella in doesn't hurt. At all.






James T. Kirk

The effects may be cheesy but I love the interactions of Kirk, Spock and McCoy in Star Trek:TOS.  Spock being taunted by McCoy and behaving all logical while Jim gallivants off to smooch the lady in turn. Star Trek had some episodes written by great sci-fi authors like Harlan Ellison and Theodore Sturgeon  And Kirk/Spock is the original slash couple too.






Jean Valjean

The central figure of The Miserables. The man who goes to jail for stealing a loaf of bread, who is flawed and will later rescue and raise Cosette. The ending of this book is quite sad, not only because of Valjean's suffering, but also because the story ended. I was so immersed in the universe Victor Hugo wrote about, I wanted the book to go on and on.





Lady Jessica

In Dune, the sun is your enemy and the moons, your friends. This is an inhospitable planet where the sandstorms can scour the flesh off your body and the gigantic sandworms rise up from the deep.

After her lover, Duke Leto, is betrayed and the evil Harkonnens occupy Dune, Jessica flees into the desert with her son, Paul Atreides. She is a very capable woman who is armed with her Bene Gesserit education. Their fight for survival lies at the centerpiece of Frank Herbert's majestic novel.

I went to this movie with a heavy feeling on account of the wedding (which wasn't Jake/Edward) and the imprint. However...


Warning, Breaking Dawn SPOILERS )

I watched DH part 2 yesterday. I was leery of watching beloved characters die, but I was intrigued by friend’s references to Al’s familiar. It piqued my curiosity and I had to ferret out the truth. So armed with my trusty binoculars, I went to see the film. Loved it.

 Since pictures are worth 1,000 words, here’s a summary:

Ocean's 13.

I loved 'eleven,' and even could stomach 'twelve.' After all it had a cameo by Holly Marie Combs (Piper Halliwell), though I hated the self-indulgent A-List party feel of the end - not to mention Julia Roberts playing... herself.

But I just couldn't go pass the first 12 minutes of 13. Though it had Al Pacino, Andy Garcia and assorted A-listers, it felt awful.

I like Angel Heart with Mickey Rourke and Robert de Niro as Lou Cypher because of the twist at the ending.

The runner-up has to be Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus. The plane-eating shark that can jump 6,000 feet is awesome!
