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!
