I finally watched the new movie on the cinema last night. I loved it. Me and my girlfriend where so happy everytime an old song would start! And I'm not the musical type, but I remember this as the only movie I said as a child I wanted to go back in for the next screening after watching it for the first time!

Last week I started a rewatch of Lie to me, a small series that went on for three seasons a few years ago.

Back on the day I had a group of friends with which I used to fangirl A LOT about this series, and it was really fun: we played handmade games, drinking games, watched the series once and again and made all sort of geek fun stuff around our beloved characters. And I hadn't watched it again since then so -now that I have Netflix- when I started watching it again last week, with no expectations at all, I found myself surprised at how good it was -I didn't remember that. I am halfway through season 2 already (lol) and if there's one thing I want to say is...

Gillian Foster

You need to meet her. Specially if you like women like me, because she will make your life better. (It's thinking about her and can't help but dropping hearts through my eyes. And I'm sorry for the cheesyness, but that's what she turns me into.) WHAT. A. PERFECT. WOMAN. I love her. Love her love her love her.

So I finally finished the third book of the Red Rising trilogy (by Pierce Brown) and I can't wait to get more of this world. There are talks of a movie (obviously) and there's a comic series starting to be published this March; plus the new trilogy (is it a trilogy?) Brown is writing, which I am not sure if follows the story where we left it or is a new story set in a different time on the same world. But anyway, I am sure I'm going to love it!

Has any of you read them? I am so frustrated because I have no one to talk about them with!!! And I don't get it! It rocks!!! You should totally go and read them now. Friendly advice. ^_^

Ps. If you don't feel like looking it up: it's a space dystopian world with great characters, it's young and fun (on the first book only you have like 3 different whole stories, it's crazy how quickly things happen on the books) and full of personal conflicts and lovestories and adventure and nasty deaths and everything!

(I'm not even trying to write something more elevated: that's what Goodreads is for. I hope you get something out of this mumbo-jumbo.)

I finished yesterday book 2/3 of the Red Rising trilogy and now I'm dying because I went away for a loooong weekend and I didn't bring book 3! :____(

I watched these movies recently and I need to find someone who understands the genius in them! I know they are bad copies of Indiana Jones, but BUT I enjoy them so much!! The first movie also reminded me of Romancing the Stone, a movie I used to LOVE when I was a child. =)

I always liked Noah Wyyle, although I never watched ER (when I was in highschool it was on tv at 2 am in my country) and I like so much that he's a librarian and a good guy that I may enjoy even more these movies than the Indiana Jones trilogy (I'd have to check, though, because it's been many years since I last watched those).

Another thing that was glorious in this first complete watching of the movies was Stana Katic. *sighs*


Stana babling and something elseCollapse )

So I finally watched this award winning series about political corruption in Spain. And I have to agree with everyone: it's brilliant. I loved the opening credits, the truthfulness with which everything was told (no fancy whores, no romanticized villains, no pure evil characters either, things are what they are -no more and no less) and it has so many great performers! Of course, I fell in love with a couple of ladies (I met Juana Acosta and kept loving Alicia Borrachero -one of my first tv loves) but I won't be talking about them today.


About the show.Collapse )

I hadn't even watched the first season until this winter. The reason was that I don't like how some things were brought to life on screen and I don't like the kind of show it is (when you're reading a tragic scene you don't see it as clearly as when someone puts bloody and sick images in front of you, so for me it's quite different to read ASOIAF -I enjoy it- and to watch certain parts of GOT -I could not be more frustrated and enraged with whoever decided to shoot that scene like that). But. Martin got on the way. Of course he's not writing faster now that he's working for HBO, so my only way of knowing how the story ends is to watch the show. So that's what I did this winter. And now here I am telling you everything (almost) I've felt for the main characters and storylines so far.

Please, keep in mind the last book I read was "A feast for crows". (I have "A dance of dragons" waiting for me to read it now that I remember better what had happened before that one.)

Hi!

In the last two weeks to a month I have read quite a lot -considering how the previous year I had read almost nothing. So I just wanted to post a quick update to let you know what I think of the following books in a line (and if anyone's interested I can elaborate on the comments).

· Great expectations: I loved it! But it took me a year to read it (because I had the brilliant idea of bringing it to the beach and I was so not on the mood that I put it aside).
· Harry Potter and the cursed child: Meh. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who's not really REALLY into the Harry Potter series.
· Red Rising: I loved it for the second time. I'm looking forward to January, when I'll start reading the next book of the series (Golden son).
· Heart & Brain: A fun comic book about (adult) life.

So that's my winter so far. How's yours?

Ps. I also am watching GOT now (I hadn't done it yet) and I am quite angry at everything (I kind of hate Martin for not being able to finish the books and make me watch certain things instead).
