Movies


But I will try and keep the frequent posting, I am liking this verbiage every couple of days, and boy does it have a good impact in my life. I feel when I write and make the words something visible, is easier to focus, to analyse and to stop the re-thinking which drives me insane sometimes.

So, these days I’ve been distracted with planning a lot and it is, as for most people who are the think-too-much breed, one of my favourite pastimes.  I’ve been lost on huge piles of magazines looking for words to use on collages I want to spread in the cave, saving tasty pretty looking food recipes I want to cook when we have friends over to visit, or simply feel like doing something special (that will be every weekend at least I hope), also cutting and pasting anything that catches my eyes, from little nick-knacks to huge pieces of furnitures, even if only to get ideas. We’ve been buying interior design magazines (one cheap and one expensive-ish a month) but all the other magazines were left by the entrance window seal by a kind neighbour Mr. J has  o:) All these things are going to a folder (just like I found out Lolla likes doing as well) and then we run through it at night and choose what is worth going and have a look at.

Some of the things are really disappointing when you go to see them “live” but they still pull us to the right stores and places to find pieces which still matches our tastes.

Togo Sofa, pretty and stylish. But expensive (£4500-6000) too hard and too low and not nice if you just want to sit up straight.

Rolf Benz Plura. Looks pretty and the flexible head and legs rests which become extended as you need are a good idea. But expensive (£10000+) and it is not comfortable at all. The fabric version we tested was "itchy" and it had the feeling of an aircraft seat.

So we may end up just choosing a normal traditional leather sofa…We’ll see. For now we have chosen our magnificent bed and mattress, we went for memory foam with sprung pockets which is best of both worlds. The bed is very Hotel-like but we absolutely lurrrrve hotels, so it is our dream bed which we wouldn’t find anything like it and we will stay with it for a long time so was worth splashing out.

One thing that is helping a lot is this 3D software where you do a floorplan and can play with colours and sizes and decide if everything will look good and pretty and, most importantly, fit before the house is even built. So I am spending a lot of time on it as well, specially at evenings when I get tired of the internet :-D

There are still a lot to choose, and to plan, and I am having a brilliant time doing so. It has taken my mind out of some nagging issues still happening with the old chapter of my life, and has been the best therapy to get me distracted and stressing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*So, Germany was 3rd place, and that was fair really. I think they played the least emotional but the most competent football, they should’ve been the winners, but football is not a fair game. Felt sad for Furlán, but he got the golden boots so all is fine!

*And Spain made justice by being champions. Holland played dirty from the start and they didn’t deserve to win by far. Spain played beautifully and cutie boy Torres got his medal so all was happy in think-too-much land.

*Summarizing: this World Cup was tainted by bad refereeing, unfair results, passionless football and the sound of vuvuzelas. But was decorated with pretty songs, wonderful smiles, and full-on play-with-our-hearts-in-our-sleeves players and managers (e.g. Maradona and Jochen Lowe). I never like seeing the sad loosers face, no matter who they were, or how badly they played. The commemorations weren’t that special apart from Ghana little dance. But isn’t that how all World Cups always go? :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rep. Dennis Kucinich: Is this the United States Congress, or the board of directors of Goldman Sachs?

First I have to say I am a big fan of Michal Moore. Being biased like he is, and exaggerated, and a bit out-of-the-point-of-what-we-are-talking-about-here like he is. He always brings me to tears, his movies for me are always a reality re-check. It is things we know are happening, it is in our faces every day of our mundane lives. Everyone knows is wrong, but do anyone do anything to change it? Hardly no one.

Maybe I’m just gullible, but this movie is friggin’ brilliant. Even if it just makes you think about what you believe is right in this world. What is important? What are the consequences of your acts to go up the ladder? How much is too much for someone to have? How can you do something to change things? And if you tried, would it matter?

Yes, it did brought me to tears again, seeing that even when good, honest, decent people get to power and try to make things change and the human condition better, the greedy and cowards still get their ways. Some(rare)times, there is a glimpse, even if tiny, of hope. But is it enough?

The movie looses its only star I took back when Michael goes to interview the Catholic Church about how “evil” capitalism system is. Really? Are we asking the same Church that was corrupt from its values killed in the name of gold and precious stones in the past? Priests talking about how Capitalism uses propaganda to ” to convince people who are victimized by this very system to support the system and see it as good.” ? Really, the Catholic Chruch, responsible for the cruzades?

The whole thing is hypocritical. For those making the movie and us watching as well. Aren’t we all moved by the same desires of making fortune? Is it a question of how much of a fortune is acceptable or not? As I said this movie is  one to tie your head in a knot and question the kinda of life you want to live behind, so it is not for the faint hearted.

Another problem with the movie is that once again, it will be only watched and have an affect on people who is already convinced by the theories Michael Moore presents us. It is not going to reach people who REALLY needed to, and even if does, it will rarely convince them they are wrong, or make them change their attitudes.

*And just by coincidence, my friend Bianca posted this animation by David Harvey which explains all Michael Moore does in 2 hours in 11 minutes. See it!

This week has been busy with work, but good productive and with amazing feedbacks from the boss, just the way you like it! Been hectic at home, they are changing the flat windows, so it has been noisy and annoying! I don’t like strangers as it is, and to have them peeping doesn’t help one little bit. But hey ho, soon all will be over so no worry putting up with it a little bit!

I’ve been also busy playing with floorplans, 3D models, Interior Designs Magazines, replying e-mails, and reading blogs (have finally emptied my to read list off my reader \:D/  yeay). I tried to change my trend of commenting every post, but sometimes was hard not to, and I did anyway (mostly with blogs which the author: is close to me and/or comments here frequently and/or has expressed likes comments before and/or is a close real friend). I am trying to find a midway between what I always thought was the right way to go about it and the way that makes me less paranoid about it all. I think I am getting there, finally :> Don’t want to turn this into a “storm inside a glass of water” :)) (That’s another Brazilian saying for ya!)

Also changed my habits on facebook and twitter and I think is helping me a lot on this road to self-balance. More to come on this subject.

Went training twice, struggled a LOT to breathe, but still managed reasonable distances. Going later today as well, once the strange people go way.

Updated my wants-to list :)>-  When you look it like that, not bad at all for a 6 weeks period!

* So the games are almost over. It has been a suprise World Cup, I will tell you that! Lots of favourites were out sadly, but what counts is the 90  minutes performance in the end, and that’s one of the ugliest beauties of the game. I was disappointed by Netherlands getting through, they cheated kicking players all the time and pressuring the referees. Happy for Spain, even without Torres having a brilliant campaign, they played fair, and Villa has been superb!

* I am supporting Uruguay tonight because they are South America, but I like Joachim Loew, so I won’t be sad if they win :) I will probably decide once the game starts and I will check who is playing fairer and  going more for the goal.

Headmaster: You’ll be lucky to find a job on the docks because you’re going nowhere. Here at Quarry Bank generally… nowhere.
John: Is “nowhere” full of geniuses, sir? Because then I probably do belong there.

Ok, so I was expecting this movie to be great! I was expecting to tell us all about the dirt between Paul and John (McCarthy and Lennon that is, keep up! :-D ). Maybe that’s what spoiled it for me, unfortunately. If you are willing to see this movie, don’t do the same mistake I did. About the Beatles, it ain’t. It is all about John. But not John’s family, or John’s friends, or music, or school. Actually is not even about John, per se,but it  is about his head. They don’t go deep, and don’t get close to very much. All is very superficial, the going of the movie is very slow, and feel very artsy. I don’t mind slow and artsy, (e.g. I loved Control – about Joy Division’s singer) as long it is leading somewhere, but unfortunately (sorry for the pun) this one just lead nowhere, it is all very lose, confusing and well, pointless. Maybe the story is just not strong enough, or special enough, or powerful enough to be told. Nonetheless, a great thing about the movie though is the acting by Aaron Johnson playing John and Kristin Scott Thomas playing Auntie Mimi. It is something worthy keeping watching the movie for. Just.

Busy bee again :bz but no news there :) Flu/hayfever finally gone and I am back to my good self, finally!

Went to see Mrs. G and her Baby G., how cute can an oriental baby be? The cutest!!! =D We caught up with life, and I had a wonderful time in the Sun. Then went to meet Mr. and Mrs. M for a spot of Caetano Veloso @ Barbican Hall, he did some crazy weirdo stuff but still totally worth it! Could not believe when he did my favourite Trem das Cores \:D/

Stroppy but his wonderful voice is all he needs

So going back to training tonight, looking forward to it! Have put on a weight I really didn’t want to, but hey ho, no point complaining about, hate something, change something, make something better, that’s my motto!

Speaking of hating something, changing something, a lot of things I hated happened lately, involving the past, friends and things I’d like have gone differently.

But again, all I will do is something to change it, and try and make it better, for me. It is not only the fact I hate confrontation, is also the fact I believe every time I complain to people the way I feel, it is in a way empowering that person to make me feel that way. And I don’t like that feeling one little bit. Also, there is the feeling of being silly, complaining about something that is not there, and is only my self-esteem (or lack of it) and paranoia getting the best of me.

So the change will have to come from me, and mostly the problem is with me anyway, (maybe a middle-child-syndrome symptom)  getting jealous of people not giving me attention as they do to each other. I need to accept that’s what happens when friends are not “mine”, but have been copied. I have to learn and cope with that, and readjust that despite I consider them my FRIENDS, they may consider me their friend. And I can live with that no problem, just need to know where I stand really. I will do my usual re-shuffle, I only hope this going with the flow, when I take a step back, doesn’t get me in trouble again, as it did before, but if it does, this time I am completely sure I did my best, and maybe it just wasn’t enough, and time for the friendship to move on to another place or finish completely.

On the other side, a lot of things I loved happened as well, balance of the Universe kinda of thing. Reconnected with my real, “original” friends, the cave planning is taking new and exciting highs, my work contract is in the process of being renewed and as I said on the top of the post, my ilness has gone away. I am happy, and content and have to stop “looking for hairs on egg shells” like we say in Brazil :-D

*So, Brazil is out of the World Cup. I always knew they wouldn’t make it to the final. They’ve played a passionless football, with too much diving, complaining and getting annoyed with the opponent when they played a certain level above the average. Yes, I do agree the referee was weak, but when you are considered the geniuses of football, no referee should be able to stop you unless it is scandalous incompetence, which wasn’t on the case by far.

* I was rooting for Uruguay to get through. Ghana team is a brute team, shouting and intimidating adversaries is not how football should be won. I think was a fair result and I am happy for Uruguay, which has been playing good solid football throughout.

* Argentina not going through and loosing 4×0 was a shock. I was getting to like their passion and the clean football they played throughout the tournament. They didn’t cheat, didn’t dive, didn’t become violent, and you gotta leave the rivalry aside to admit and admire that . Unfortunately,(and it hurts me to say that) Brazil was the one doing all those things this year, and you gotta leave your Brazilian heart aside to admit that as well. With me, love for the sport speaks louder than the love or hate for the teams.

* Did not see the Spain game, but happy Torres will get another chance to try ;)

Tom: What happens when you fall in love? Summer: You believe in that? Tom: It's love, it's not Santa Claus.

Between one game and the other, and the cave planning, we managed to, finally , watch 500 days of Summer. The movie starts saying it is not a love story, and I disagree with it. For me, it is a love story, and all love entitles, including coming to an end, or not being corresponded. It is an amazing story, got me gripped on the sofa and shut myself up (I usually speak a LOT during movies) and I just wanted to know if the predictable, sweeter-than-honey, messes-up-with-peoples-heads-and-expectations-about-how-real-life-should-be annoying Hollywoodian ending would come. Well, I am not going to spoil that for you ;)  But enjoyed it a lot!

It is hard to describe this movie without giving too much away, but I will try my best.

I went in expecting the film was going to be weaker than the the first one (to which I’ve posted the  reasons to like  on the previous post) and I wasn’t disappointed.  Mrs. M said it right, it felt just like another episode, but stretched. And that’s exactly what I think they did. They wrote 30 minutes worth of good material and an additional 1:30h of non-sense to fill in the timing for a cinema movie.

Good bits: Liza Minelli doing Single Lady (Put a Ring on it), she rocked!! Funny jokes that worked were really funny, they still kept a teeny bit of problems that can affect us women in real life, and their friendship is still going strong, beautiful and is to make jealous any woman who doesn’t have it ;)

Bad bits: The karaoke scene with them singing “I am woman” is cringeworthy. Really, do we need that cliche? I didn’t like it one bit, the women standing up to sing alone was appaling. They have included loads of political teachings in the dialogs, in my opinion it was plain wrong, boring and useless, but maybe it reaches some other audience who doesn’t really understand women struggle around the world. I thought the setup in Abu-Dhabi and the jokes with the muslim religion were distateful. What they meet the 6 muslim women in the market almost made me want to leave the cinema there and then (If you don’t mind spoilers, click here to know what happens) . The changing clothes was very annoying as well, it was like they had 6 changings a day, even when they go out to ride camels, they change clothes to have a picinic (say what?? :-O ) and the clothes weren’t that pretty this time round. The 80’s scene was too short, would love to see more of that :) They lost touch with the real problems in real life (again, click here if you have watched the movie, or if you don’t mind spoilers to know what I am talking about).

The experience: Had to buy tickets 2 hours before the session and after 30 minutes queueing (it was sould out when we went back from dinner) The fact the cinema was packed with youngsters also contributed to the annoyance, every little sex punt they would giggle like silly beans (there was a man with a very loud laughter, which amused me :-D ) and they would oohh-ahh at anything Carrie would do.

Conclusion: Really disappointed. But worthy the excuse to have a girlie night and catch up with the friendies (in this case was only Mrs M. with me at the cinema, but also met former boss for dinner). If you could not make it yet, no need to rush at all to watch it, and you can patiently wait until it comes out on DVD.

On the trendy subjects going around lately…

*World Cup* :-bd  But then again, I’m this huge fan of the sport, someone who gets all the feelings it has to offer. Spoke about my love football before, but there is something about the World Cup, a pinnacle of the sport, the passion. For me, is all about the underdogs, the ones we can never expect to get any results, but there is always at least one to prove us wrong. To prove highly paid salaries is nothing compared to a heart beating fast in their chest and wearing the country’s shirt means carrying that nation. And watch this space, unless the world cup is really bland and boring, I will put my thoughts in here in how its all gone and why it is so magical to me!

*Sex and the City 2* :-bd Forget about the shoes, the clothes, the frivolity of them never EVER discussing world affairs and what is going on in this planet (mind you I don’t like discussing these things either, look General News bellow). What I like about these girls, is their friendship, the fact life is not easy for them either, and they go through the tough times together. They fight, they make up, they get disappointed (with others and each other) and they survive. For all the bits that I personally think as being wrong “woman role model”  it makes up for that. So yeah, I am one of those going to see the second film, after the first one being very moving and worth the 2-4-1 tickets!

*General News* :-q I have been absent from rants about the Israeli Attack on the Hamaz aid boat, the BT Oil Leak, and general bad news, because I absolutely hate propagating bad news. If you have bad news and have something that I can do to help to fix, assist or change it, fair enough. But I think propagating bad news with no purpose, is only a way to increase the bad feelings already taking over us. At least the way I see it, the frustration, anger, hopelessness generated by the news only generate more actions towards more of these being created. I really do not get how Twitter, Facebook or blog rantings really put a pressure on change. Unless they bring something we can pay for (singles for Xmas chart, help with Haiti Aid) sign for (Number 10 petitions, Kidnapped kids cause) I really don’t know how rantings can help. Most of the time, for me, it only shows how people can be rude when in the net, disregarding other people’s – sometimes your closest friends – opinions, and again, generating more anger and frustration – and here I prove my point. I ignore the rude rants from friends and will never hold it against them (I know they are not like that in person) is just that I am not prepared to do it. And where do I get the news from? Good News with Russell Howard, Mock the Week and Have I got news from you. All comedy shows about the news, which is great to get to know what is happening without getting depressed. Of course, my timeline also tells me about the disasters of the world, along with their personal views, sometimes I even few there is a race to tell everyone what tragic happened that day 8-| So don’t expect me ever to propagate bad news (murders, terrorist attacks, nature’s disasters, political scandals and the lot) unless I can do and tell you to do something about it.

*TV Series* :-bd As  lately I’ve been refusing to watch the news, I have to fill the TV time with something else. We are very much into Great British Menu, 24 (the final will be aired next weekend), House, Bones, Four Weddings, Come Dine with me and Red Dwarf (on DVD) have been brilliant taking me to Zombieland and forgetting all the doom and gloom outside :-D

*Meeting friends* :-?  Happy with the way I’ve taking the initiative to arrange meet ups with the friends lately. Sad with them not able to make it most of the time. But my motto now is to do my part, what to come, be more than welcome, don’t want/ cannot join us? See ya next time then, I’m going!  =) Maybe this is why I can’t remember last weekend I just stayed put and not done anything :> Not complaining though, never!

Someone in Brazil once said Football is the people’s opium. I could not agree more. For people like me, who has this feeling inside, is like trying to explain how love feels. Or hate.
I believe with me (and many others) it started at home. My dad was fanatical about it. He was a strong supporter of Palmeiras, who is the rivals of Corinthians in Sao Paulo. I was the only child of the three that connected with dad to sit down and watch the games, I think in a level it was the way I would spend the great time with him, rooting, crying, suffering for our team. In one occasion, I even kissed the TV when we won the regional championship in the last minute.
This love grown so much, I had football decorations on my wardrobe, I went out in my football shirt, I would make Sundays a programme to go an watch football. Because Dad didn’t want to go to the stadiums, sometimes we had to anxiously listen to the game glued to the radio…Mum once took me there and I can remember every little second of it, it was amazing! (later dad also took me and I was even on TV while they said the game marked the return of families to the games).
But ok, that deals on how I came to love football so much. But why? Again, like love and hate, there is no way to explain the whys.
I can explain the deep happiness we feel when our team wins. And the deep (silly) sadness we feel when we loose. The anger when the other team cheats. Or the referee is unfair. The frustration we feel when we know we could’ve done better than those stupid people earning rivers of money playing down there did. The sense of giving up everything when we see maybe, just maybe, is all a political game, where supporters do not have a say on how it is run – and giving it up, when is too much to accept.
When I came to London I’ve stopped supporting Palmeiras because they fired the manager who won it 2 years in a row of titles because he started clashing with the directors. Because games here are mostly shown only on cable TV, I didn’t bother picking up a team to support, what would be the point if I wasn’t going to be able to follow them? But after meeting Mr J., I’ve met in him a person who loves football as much as I do, and we now love football together, and this is one of the highlights of the week, and I say that in a good way!
Now, another thing I have to explain as well is the fact I don’t like the Brazilian squad. I will wear my shirt on the World Cup and support Brazil with all my love, because I know how important for the people the victory would be. How people who the only happiness in life is football would feel, and they, despite the Brazilian squad, deserve to feel it. Because I can say, I feel it in my heart too.

*********** Moment “Dear Diary” *********

Here are some pics from our trip to Preston to see our English Team (Chelsea) play. See, that’s what love for football do to you. 6 hours on a car each way. And on the way back, you know it was totally worth it.

Warming up

Getting together before the game

Under the flag Is Mr Chelsea himself!

The flag and “The” man

Goal!

This play ended up being the second Chelsea goal of the game

Splash! Host and Lost

National Football Museum

Now melted and lost. To the winners, the potatoes!

“And to the winners, the potatoes!”

Fog! St. Walburge's

Mr. J took me on a guided tour of Preston seeing he did his University there! Such a nice little town (reminded me of Liverpool)

Modern Times

And isn’t it cute Preston still does such a thing?

******* Moment movie review *****

Just by coincidence, last weekend I also watched a movie about football, but because we are on the subject anyway, here goes two tips about very good football movies, even if you don’t like the game ;;)

The Damned United – Amazing acting from Michael Sheen, one of the best of this generation. The plot is about the greatest football manager to never be England’s boss. The guy is amazing and along with a good directing the film is a story about perseverance, revenge, being hamble and not so much. Found myself rooting for whatever team he was managing. I now truly believe the cheating trend is in the name of the club ;)


Goal! – is a cute film. One of those you put on Saturday afternoon, eating air popped popcorn and drinking tea. Is about a boy going against his dad’s wishes to play football and learning that only wanting it hard is not enough to have your dreams come true.

District 9 – I really liked what this movie had to tell us about. Show how ugly, selfish and violent  humanity is (and has somewhat always been) it made us root for the aliens (as fellow bloggers did too).  Aside the reasons why they chose to film it in South Africa instead of United States, and why they chose  to depict Nigerians like they did, is a strong film, that could have been made with humans instead and  wouldn’t be that different.  The doctor’s naivety as despair stroke me as so original, it did the job for me  and throughout enjoyed watching this movie that has a hint of documentary.

Avatar – In my opinion, much ado about nothing. Again, you root for the aliens and they show how ugly humans are. But hey wait a minute, didn’t James Cameron’s wife did that on District 9 and with a much better beautiful out-of-easy-clichés plot? Yeah that’s right, she DID! The movie annoyed me in so many points it would become boring to list them all here. Believe you me. The only thing worth going for the cinema to see this movie is for the graphics which ate completely astonishing and were worthy the 2-4-1 tickets we paid to see it :) Graphics Plot/Story

The hurt locker – A-m-a-z-i-n-g. You know when you finish watching a movie and you need a few seconds to think about it afterwards in silence? There you go. This is exactly like I was. I don’t want to say much about it not to spoil it for you, but this movie is my pinnacle for when I even think about getting grumpy about things that happen in my life. We all know things are bad in Iraq, we are not stupid. But to know these facts were based in real life, and that people are going through that every day (even when the news have other catastrophes to show) is heart-crushing. No patronizing. No pretty girl motivating you to do the right right. No predictable ending. That’s my kind of movie. And I am glad Mr J made me watch it.

Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist > Gotta say I was a bit disappointed. I expected something more comedy-like, and faster too. Michael Cera and Katt Dennings didn’t have much of a chemistry and maybe it was something that put me a bit off of it. On the plus point, it was a sweet movie… The gay friends were not (for a change) stereotyped and were my favourite characters. “Caroline” and “Tris” were great and covincing but how can someone stay drunk that long (Caroline) after one stop in the night still surprises me. I think I was expecting more of Juno/Superbad line of movie but this wasn’t it. In the end, it was just a teen movie, which can be attracting to adults (it deals with issues we will have all our lives, young, old, adult or teenagers) like falling in love (for the wrong person), cheating, homosexuality, the dream of having a band, wanted to be loved by who you are, and many more topics like those, but be sure if you watch it, don’t have your expectations too high.

In the loop – If you know and already love the amazing BBC Series The Thick of It, then you will love in The Loop as well. But even if you don’t, it is worth a go. Just like the programme, it is set on the politic background in Britain, and just for the fun of a movie, this time they have to interact with the USA to decide whether or not and in case of a yes, how to start the war against Iraque. Peter Capaldi is amazing and once again had me thinking if he will end up having a heart attack on set while filming this stuff. The plot is so believable Mr J and I were left wondering if this is actually how things happened when the decision was taken in real life. I didn’t find it as satirical as it should be and looks more like a documentary movie to us (we do know full well that is not the case). So if you are into politics, this is more than recommended but if you would like to cringe at gaffes, misunderstandings and the PR world trying to fix it as well, don’t miss it! .

rachel-getting-married-150x150 Last night was alone night (which is what we call when Mr J and I spend the night apart) and I got the chance to watch the second movie of my list – Rachel getting married.

The story is far from conventional wedding-rom-com movies and the message is quite deep in itself.  The movie is far from the usual Hollywood script and the production is quite French Artsy style.

The plot is about a drug addict going back home from rehab for a while to attend her sisters’ wedding during a whole weekend. Bearing the boring bit sometimes, it compensates this fact with the turn of profoundly emotional scenes and revelations which is hard to see coming.

Having a troublesome relationship with my siblings – I do love them and I know they love me too, but hey is complicated – I could relate immensily with the movie, I even also had a full-on stress caused by my brother on the night before my wedding, and maybe this is why I liked it more than some people would. I don’t want to give the ending away, but let’s say I believe in the end as well and believe it is possibly what happens in real life more often than we’d care to know.

All in all, it was a good movie, with strong acting and directing, but could do without the long wedding party scene and some other long bits which I thought wasn’t so needed to still make it emotional. 3 starts out of 5.

star-trek-xi-caras-1

The first three movies were delivered yesterday :) And we couldn’t wait to watch the first one, Star Trek XI.
Star Trek is somewhat comfort to my heart.
It was one of the TV Shows we all watched together in the small living room, all the 5 of us. Mum and Dad on the big sofa (a 2 seater), either my sis or bro on the small sofa-chair but for some reason I remember watching it on the floor – I always did like to sit or lie on the floor, mind you.
So only good memories came back last night while we watched and criticized – as it often happens when Mr J and I watch a movie – this blockbuster.

I was impressed with the directing and acting on the movie. They still kept the main characteristics from the original series cast, but with a twist, the actors weren’t imitating the old guys, but acting originally with their own skin and voice and mannerisms. I was afraid it was going to be a bad copy, but boy was I wrong or what?

Zachary Quinto did a wonderful job as Spock and 2 seconds into his first dialogue line I completely forgot about Syler (from Heroes).

For those who already saw the movie or don’t mind spoilers, click on this link to see my review that includes some things that happens on it.

All and all was a good movie, and I really enjoyed watching it. 3,5 stars out of 5 :)
