Project X

This seems like the most epic party ever. Totally makes me long for Tomorrow Land this summer!

I used to be melancholical for never attending these kind of parties. When I was in university, I had to study so much that I didn't really got to experrience the so called "frat life". Fortunately for me, after my studies I went to Mexico, where I for sure found out what party life is about :)

That said, I leave you with my favorites songs of the movie. Party on people!

The House of the Spirits

As an '80 child, it's so strange to think that a movie from 1994 is nowadays a dated movie... But fortunately, you forget that The House of the Spirits is an "old movie" instantly, because its magic has survived time. I initially bought this dvd because the movie is based on the novel La casa de los espíritus, from Isabel Allende. Although I didn't read the book (yet), I'm very glad with this movie adaptation. Incredible actors (how hot is Antonio Banderas in this movie, holy guacamole!), an amazing scenery (I have to go to Chile asap) and insights to how life was during the horrible dictatorship of Pinochet...

The Lovely Bones

By now, you all know that I have a weak spot for movies that are so sad that your heart is aching when you're watching. The Lovely Bones is one of those movies. It touches one of the most horrible things in the world: child abuse and murder. And yet, it is brought to you in such a serene way with the utmost respect for the victims. Man, I hate Stanley Tucci's character so much. It only proves what a brilliant actor he is, because he seems such a likeable guy in real life. But the revelation of the movie is for sure Saoirse Ronan. What an actress. This movie is actually full of amazing leading ladies, yes I'm talking about you, Rachel Weisz and Susan Sarandon! It's crazy to realize how versatile Peter Jackson is, the director of this movie: from LOTR to The Lovely Bones... I'm a fan, all the way!

Fifty Shades of Grey

I only need to hear the Fifty Shades version of Crazy in Love, and I'm in trance haha :D Oh Bey, there's no sexier voice than yours. Except perhaps for Jamie Dornan... Man, he got to be the sexiest man alive right now. I really need the second part coming out. Like now.

Into the Wild

I must be the last person on earth that has finally seen Into the Wild. This is again one of those movies that make a huge impact on your life. It sure did on mine. I admit that I would never be capable doing what the protagonist of the movie did: leave everything behind, every kind of comfort, to become one with nature. Becoming one with nature sounds very appealing to me, but I would for sure choose an exotic beach instead of the freezing temperatures of Alaska :D What struck me the most is the tragic fate of the boy... If only he would have lasted 3 days more... The craziest part is this actually happened in real life. If you haven't seen this movie, you should: great story, breathtaking scenery and amazing acting!

The Monuments Men

When I began to watch "The Monuments Men" I thought for a second: wait a minute, they gave me the wrong dvd! Because the movie actually starts in Bruges (my hometown) and they talk in Flemish. Such a cool start! First of all, this quicky became one of my favorite movies. I reallly love the idea of protecting art no mather what. If I would become a spy or anyhow active in a war, it would only be for something like The Monuments Men. Cool fact, this group is actually based on true events! Yet again, George Clooney stole my heart. As did Cate Blanchett, I'm in love with her character! She's without a doubt one of the best actresses of her generation. Definitely one to watch!

The Hobbit

I'm having total LOTR withdrawal signs, you guys. Can't Peter Jackson write his own book and film it afterwards? :(

In the meantime I'm leaving you a video of my favorite character of The Hobbit, Radagast! I swear I wouldn't have continued watching the movie if the hedgehog had died!
