Gato con botas

When I lived in Mexico (and had a Mexican boyfriend), I went to the movies a lot. Normally I always see the movie in original version, but when Puss in Boots or in Spanish Gato con botas came out, I had to see the dubbed version. Puss in boots and his lady love were voiced by non other than Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek. It was soooooooo cool to watch this movie, having lived in Andalucía ánd in Mexico, since Antonio is from Málaga, Andalucía and Salma from Coatzacoalcos, México (I even had a boyfriend from that same city, how big is the chance?!). I love this movie so much and back in the day, my bf and I made up entire new gato con botas dialogues in Andalusian accent. Such great memories... ♥

How incredibly hot is the actor that portrays Chéri??? I didn't know Rupert Friend before, but damn... that man is mesmerizing. And the always elegant Michelle Pfeiffer is still as beautiful as when she was 20 years old ♥ If you're a sucker for French romantic costume dramas you have to see this movie. I sure loved it :)

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.
