"It was real, Sara — you and me. It's real."

I can’t get over this scene, I just can’t. I’ve been reading the TWoP Prison Break recaps for the past days, and when I arrived at this moment, I just… *tears*
Anyway, here’s a wonderful Michael/Sara music vid set to Lou Barlow’s “Legendary”. It contains clips from the first and second season, so it might be a bit spoiler-ish. It’s one of the best I’ve seen so far. I hate that it’s all so difficult for the both of them, but it makes for great drama.

Happy Birthday Juliette!

(Here’s a pretty image of SFU you probably already have.)

Dearest Juliette,
the goddess of all things HBO,
one of the bestest girls I’ve met this year,
thanks for all the goodies you’ve made me discover (especially David Fisher),
and may you be blessed with happiness for this new year…

(That was supposed to be a pretty Shakespearean sonnet -as Bill would have loved- but I was too tired to try and compose. So there you go!)

The prettiest man you'll ever see

Like every girl watching Prison Break, I desperately fell for Wentworth Miller. Siiiigh.
The show itself is rather awesome –but really, you can’t help noticing Michael is damn good-looking. He and Dr. Sara will have the prettiest babies on Earth.
I think I might have set a record with this show. I’ve watched about 23 episodes in the last 36 hours. And still counting.

Movie news and Christmas cheer

“I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes…
Christmas is all around us, and so the feeling grows…”

Only a couple of days until Christmas, but I’ve been so busy lately, I barely noticed the Christmas spirit all around us. Thankfully, Billy Mack’s (fake) song is here to remind me of it! Truth of the matter is, I’m having a gloriously great time since I’m on holidays. It’s been all good so far -especially due to the short but nonetherless awesome visit of our favorite Swiss friend.

So what’s new in the world of movies? Well, first things first, that amazing ad for Superman Returns. It very nearly killed me the first time I saw it. There’s also an ad for Christopher Nolan I really like.

Aren’t they absolutely beautiful? I love the design, and the fact that Warner Bros. actually believes Bryan is eligible for the Best Director race. I mean, heck I wish it was so, but unfortunately, with Clint and Marty and Paul Greengrass and Stephen Frears, and… Anyway, I reckon it’s a really good ad. The Prestige ad is also very much recognizable -all the FYC ads look that way for this particular film.

Many trailers have also landed on the Web lately, and here are the most interesting ones. Click the titles to see the videos.

  • Grindhouse, co-directed by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. While Little!Bryan was looking up in the sky dreaming of Supes, Little!Rodriguez and Little!Tarantino were fantasizing about zombies, blood, naked ladies and violence without limits. And this is the result of their lifelong desire of bringing back old-fashioned B-movies to screen…
  • Miss Potter, directed by Chris Noonan. It looks cute, it sounds cute, it has those cute rabbits all over the place… Plus, Ewan McGregor and Renee Zellweger are both rather cute. In other words, one hell of a cute film.
  • Teaser trailer for Ocean’s Thirteen, directed by Steven Soderbergh. The whole gang is back + Al Pacino and Ellen Barkin.
  • Live Free or Die Hard, directed by Len Wiseman. John McClane is back! Although we wished he wasn’t directed by the genius who brought us Underworld and its sequel. Some people should just not make movies.
  • Speaking of which, the “Underworld producers” will soon bring us Blood and Chocolate, directed by Katya von Garnier. As if this was going to attract people. This looks like the crappiest film ever -based on an apparently successful book, the story follows “a teenage werewolf torn between honoring her family’s secret and her love for a man”. The only interesting thing here is that the afromentioned man is played by Hugh Dancy, who is of course the love of my life, and who looks almighty good in the film. Too bad he doesn’t choose his parts wisely…

I’ve also seen quite a lot of movies, this week. First of all, there was Gus Van Sant’s My Own Private Idaho, which was really good and heartbreaking. River Phoenix’s performance was outstanding -I wonder why he didn’t get an Oscar nomination for it? Anyway, it was a really beautiful, intimate film. I also watched Sam Mendes’ Road To Perdition yesterday, and again, absolutely adored it. I reckon it’s very underestimated. The photography (by the late Conrad L. Hall, one of the best directors of photography of our times) was gorgeous, and so was Thomas Newman’s music (of course). Today was the now-mandatory screening of Love Actually, the best Christmas film and romantic comedy ever. All the characters are just amazing. From Hugh Grant’s Prime Minister down to the smaller parts (Thomas Sangster as an 11-year-old in love, Andrew Lincoln aching for his best friend’s new wife, Martin Freeman playing a stand-in actor in porn films, falling in love with his ‘acting’ partner), it’s all brillantly written and intertwined. I wish Ralph Fiennes and Kate Winslet had been part of the cast, because they were all so good -Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Emma Thompson and Alan Rickman, Laura Linney, Bill Nighy, Keira Knightley…

In theaters, I went to see Andrea Arnold’s Red Road, which was excellent and very emotional. Full of tension and sadness -intense and gritty. I highly recommend it, although it is very heartwrenching and sort of difficult to watch. It reminded me of Isabel Coixet’s the Secret Life of Words. The next day, I saw the most horrible, horrendous, sickening, [insert a synonym for ‘shockingly bad’ here] film, Eragon. It’s a bit painful to think that such a bad movie can make it to theaters nowadays, so I won’t linger on it too much, but I’m quite positive about the fact that this is by far the worst film I’ve seen this year. There you go. It was just appallingly ridiculous. I refuse to put up the poster for the film because it was just so awful. Yesterday, we went to see Hors de Prix, which is this nice French romantic comedy with Gad Elmaleh and Audrey Tautou. It was quite charming and cute, although, you know, it’s been done before.

Well, that’s it for now! Stay tuned, folks, and may you all have a jolly merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from Coldplay…

Watch the hilariously hilarious Christmas message from Coldplay posted at their the official site. That was just the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen. Love them to bits, those four…
Will really cracked me up. That dorky dance! And Jonny, what can I say? …
