Pocahontas

I don't know why, but it seems that I'm the only one of my generation who thinks that Pocahontas is one of the best Disney movies of all time. Whenever we talk about Disney and I tell that Pocahontas is my favorite (together with The Lion King), they tell me that they didn't like it all. What can I say, I was already intrigued by indigenous culture from an early age: living in harmony with the nature (and animals) has always be one of my priorities, I try to respect, care and value Mother Nature at all times.This and the fact that my great grandfather was an indian from North America, made Pocahontas my idol when I was little.

P.S. I still get goosebumps when I listen to Colors of the Wind... ♥

Frozen

Let it go, let it goooooo! Disney did it again! Is it normal that I still sing alone and cry while watching Disney movies? Bueno, I honestly don't care, because I'm in love with Frozen! Disney does moral lessons best! A guy that wants to marry you after knowing you only 3 hours? What a creep! And what about true love? You always have to put family first!

Frozen is just a must see for everybody between 0-150 years old, seriously! And I don't know about you guys, but I'm in love with Olaf ♥

Robin Hood

I've always been intrigued by the legend of Robin Hood: first by Disney, later on by Robin Hood, prince of thieves with Kevin Costner. And more recently, I fell in love with the newest Robin Hood movie. I like the fact that this movie is very realistic, and less "romantic adventure movie". And ofcourse the fact that two of my favorite actors of all time, Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, play Robin and Marion is a big plus. It's once again proven : Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe are a golden team!



I am just so obsessed with Cate Blanchett. Blonde or brown, with or without make up, young or aging gracefully... She seems always so charismatic and regal to me ♥

Eragon

By now you all know that I'm a sucker for anything fantasy. So when I found out that they would broadcast Eragon, I made it a movie night. Eragon is almost ten years old, but it doesn't show. The movie is (like always) about the battle between good and evil. And about dragons. Who knew that baby dragons could be so cute?! Now I want one myself haha. It's a pity that they didn't film the other books of the Eragon trilogy. I guess I just have to read the books then!

De battre mon coeur s'est arrêté

Hello, do you remember me?
It's been ages since I last wrote here, but life happened. It seems that every time I go to Mexico, I lose track of time (and anything else). I'm currently experiencing a serious case of post-Mexico depression, but I'm getting better by the day (or is that just wishful thinking?).

Anyway, I saw this French movie called De battre mon coeur s'est arrêté. I got to be honest, I had no high expectations what so ever, but I actually really liked the movie! But I got to admit that men who play the piano are my soft spot, is there anything more sexy than that? I don't think so!

Almería

In September I finally went back to Almería, where I used to live a couple of years ago. Being greeted by this view when you get out of the plane, is everything:

Almería did change over the years. Almería is home now to this cute cupcake store that became our favorite breakfast spot during our stay ♥

I almost forgot how freakin hot it is in Almería! It was a pleasant change of the horrible Belgian weather though...

A must when you're in Almería? Visiting the alcazaba, an amazing Castillo moro/católico, with the most amazing view!




A sunny trip with my bae was just what the doctor ordered! ♥

Divergent

While watching this movie, I immediately was contemplating to what group I would belong. Would I belong to the dauntless? Hell no! I would have never jumped off that train :D I think I would be Candor. What about you? I'm getting sooo excited for the next movie!
