Latest Event Updates
Everybody knows the story of the “Amazing Spider-Man” and, personally, I prefer this type of Spider-Man for one and only reason: his spider-web is made by him; it’s not produced “naturally” after he is bitten. This Spider-Man is a genius, and the only “extention” to his human self after he is bitten is – correct me if I’m wrong – super-human strength and the ability to walk on walls and ceilings etc.
When this movie comes out in theatres, I am definitely watching it! Anyone else with me?!
The story revolves around a young man, Thomas (Ben Barnes), who is taken under the wing of the local Spook, Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) and is trained to be the new one. However, while in the position of a simple apprentice and the absence of the actual Spook, the evil Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) escapes her confinement.
The question is simple: Now what?
A “to-be-expected-exciting” movie, based on a great novel by Orson Scott Card… Can’t wait for it to be out in theatres!
I had read the book in the past when I was justa kitten. I can still recall the times when something in the book would be revealed either because of a flashback or just because the characters found something amongst them… or pretty much anything!
A few years had to pass for me to actually remember that there was also a movie based on the book and called “Holes”!
I must say that I was pretty hyped up today to find out that this was the case. So I secretly went to the Director’s computer and found a search engine sitting there – oh so innocently – on the screen. I managed to sort of type “H-O-L-E-S-M-O-V-I-E” on the search engine before the Director walked into his office (yes! I’ve been practising, mind you) and quickly curled up into a ball so that he didn’t notice me. With one eye, I saw the Director looking at his screen in wonder. His thoughts were so obvious: “When did I write this?” But still, he pressed ENTER.
Not too soon after that, the Director, a friend of his (who had “Holes” on DVD), and myself were watching the movie!
I must say, the story was well put together. Well, that was t be expected; I remember the book being better than good!
I can’t say much about the story, but lets say it’s about this unlucky kid, Stanley (Shia LaBeouf) who comes from a family of cursed (bad luck) generations. He is convicted to digging holes in a desert that’s considered to be some kind of “jail” that teaches good behavior or so. However: Why are they digging holes? Why in that desert? And why is Stanley and his generations cursed?
Looking around on youtube, I found this interesting twist of Disney’s “Let It Go” from the animated film “Frozen”.
A very well put together cover by Alex Boyé & One Voice Children’s Choir! Enjoy!
I can officially say that I am a huge fan of the “Game of Thrones” series, and I can’t wait for Season 4. I saw this video, where producer designer Deborah Riley describes what it’s like to be a part of such a series:
P.S.: Here are some quick shots of what Season 4 will look like…! Ohhh, I can’t wait!
If not all of us, most of us atleast know the song “A Whole New World” from Disney’s animated film “Aladdin” (1992)…
I was listening to it and watching the clip: “A whole new wo~orld, a dazzling place I never knew! But…….. wait, what?!”
There are other versions like this one [from "The Little Mermaid" (1989), to "Beauty and the Beast" (1991), and even to the well-known "Lion King" (1994)].
Honestly, a great way to introduce this strange new character, Stitch, back in 2002!
A great demonstration on how a few FPS (Frames Per Second) can make such a huge difference!
