Movies I watched in December

Namaste folks!

December was a pretty hectic month for me, but somehow I managed to see quite a lot movies ^^

Bridget Jones’s Diary

bridgetjonesdiarymovieposter

Me and two friends had a Bridget Jones Marathon. I love this movie, always have, always will. Renée Zellweger is great in this one and – let’s face it, the movie is hilarious. When I first saw this movie I fell in love with Colin Firth. He is so yum ♥

(5/5)

 

Bridget Jones – The edge of Reason

330px-bridget_jones_edge_of_reason_poster

The second movie of our Bridget Jones marathon. It’s also a great movie. I am very happy that Hugh Grant got a haircut. I really did not like his hair in the first movie. I still love the humour and the scenes in that thai prison are so funny, but I still like the first movie better.

(4/5)

Bridget Jones’s Baby

bridget_jones27s_baby_poster

Who did see this coming? xD First of all – I am so happy they did not just film the third book. The book is garbage, really. Who can live in a Bridget Jones Universe when Mark Darcy is dead? Not me.
So I enjoyed this movie a lot, it is funny and entertaining. I very much felt with Mark, he was so adorable. I am not happy with this Bridget Jones though, I liked her better with her original face and a little extra weight,but this is just complaining on a very high level. It’s a fun movie!

(4/5)

Fantastic Beasts and where to find them

fantastic_beasts_and_where_to_find_them_poster

I was waiting so long for this movie to come out and I LOVE it. Really, it’s awesome and one of the best movies I have seen lately. I am now officially in love with Eddie Redmayne. Can’t wait to see it again. And again. And again, and.., well you got it ^^

(10/5)

Ice sculpture christmas

mv5bmje1nji1otc3nv5bml5banbnxkftztgwndm4mdeznze-_v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_

This was one of the christmas movies that Netflix suggested. A very bad and cheesy RomCom. I did not enjoy that one. Very predctable, pretty boring.

(1/5)

Merry Kissmas

merry-kissmas

Another one of these Netflix christmas movies. A movie that is called “Merry Kissmas” is almost designed to be a bad movie. But it is not! In fact it is so bad, it is almost good again. Excpet that it is really, really bad. Everyone is so nice and polite to each other, it’s just dull.

(0/5)

Into the woods

into_the_woods_film_poster

I am still not completley sure what to think about that movie. I  enjoyed the music, but the plot is kinda…weird. Still, I think my tendencies go to “I like the movie”.

Movies I watched in November

Namaste folks!

I have to admit, this was no huge movie month for Vanessa. Still – here is what I saw:

 

1. Now you see me 2

now-you-see-me-2-poster

Last month I saw Now you see me and Fiorella pointed out that there was a second movie, so I got it and watched it. It is not as good ass the first one, I didnt’t care for the Isla Fisher replacement girl, but Daniel Radcliffe as a lunatic villan was kind of cool.

(3/5)

 

2. Doctor Strange

mv5bmjm2oda4mtm0m15bml5banbnxkftztgwnze5otyxmdi-_v1_uy268_cr00182268_al_

I was very much looking forward to this movie to come out! I love Benedict Cumberbatch and I was expecting a lot from this movie. And what can I say – it did not let me down! Parts of the movie were shot in Nepal, and I was sitting in the theatre and I was like:”I have been there, I know this!” and it was just awesome. Benedict Cumberbatch was awesome, the setting was gorgeous and I enjoyed the movie very much!

(5/5)

 

3. Forgetting Sarah Marshall

forgetting_sarah_marshall_ver6_xlg

It’s a typical Hollywood RomCom.Very american ^^’ It was an ok movie that was suggested to me by Netflix. I did not care to see so many willies and I never liked Russel Brand, but it has its moments.

(2/5)

 

4. Step up 2 the streets

step-up-2-the-streets-2008-movie-poster

I have not seen this movie in a while and about two weeks ago it was shown on TV. It’s one of these very typical dance/love movies. I like the original Step up movie best (I mean – Channing Tatum!), but this one is quite nice as well. The final dance is great ;D

(4/5)

Movies I watched in October

Namaste folks!

I love watching movies, so it will be my great pleasure to share which movies I watched lately!

1. Finding Dory

220px-finding_dory

Second parts are never as good as first parts they say. They are wrong! Finding Dory is a great second part of one of my all favourite movies “Finding Nemo”.
It’s a glorious movie in which we accompany Marlin, Nemo and Dory through the grand ocean as they seek for Dorys long lost parents. I loved Hank, the grumpy Octopus (or shall I say Septopus?) and Destiny the whale shark with eye issues. It’s a lovely movie, that will make you laugh and maybe even cry at some points. Mr Disney and Mrs Pixar – I salut you 😀

(5/5)

 

2. Now you see me

now-you-see-me

A great found on Netflix! This movie seriously blew my mind, I did not see the end coming! It is quick paced at all time, once you think you know what’ll happen next they surprise you again! LOVE THAT MOVIE!
The only thing that annoyed me a little was this kinda forced romantic aspect between Mark Ruffalo and Mélanie Laurent, I did not need that.  Still,one of the best movies I have seen lately!

(5/5)

 

3. My life in Ruins

my_life_in_ruins_xlg

Ever since My big fat greek wedding came out, I have been admiring Nia Vardalos. So when Netflix added this movie recently, I just had to watch it! It’s an entertaining, yet a little shallow movie.You will laugh, you will feel embarrassed for some of the characters and you will feel the inmediate desire to pack your things and go to Greece. Perfect movie fo a girls night 🙂

Movie Scavenger Hunt

Namaste folks!

Another movie scavenger hunt! Wuuut Wuuut! Awesome! I can not wait to start! I hope you’ll enjoy it 😀

I will include a trailer to every point, so you get the chance to check the movie out! Feel free to let me know if I was able to interest you in one of the movies 😉

A movie with a character who has the same first name as you have.

Difficult!! I can only think of one:

The little mermaid

Ursula calls herself Vanessa when she tries to seduce Prince Eric. Counts! (I hope lol)

A movie with an open end.

I hate these kinds of movies. I really hate them. But there is one that I find really very good.

Inception

At the end there is this spinning top and you wait for it to fall over, but they would never show!! So you don’t know..Is it real..or not?? This was killing me! (It sstill does a little ^^’)

A movie with an animal that speaks.

I think it would be too easy to just go for an animated movie and I just recently have seen the great movie :

Paddington

and it is soo funny and cute ♥

A movie that is a musical

I normally dont like these musical movies so much, but I liked

Sweeny Todd

Mainly because of Johnny Depp (♥♥)

A movie you are planing to see.

Evertime I tell people that I haven’t seen this movie everyone goes like: Whaaaat?! You haven’t seen

Titanic

What is wrong with you??? So I am planning on seeing this movie for years now.

The first (or one of the first) movie you ever saw at the cinema.

I think that this was the first I ever saw:

The Jungle Book 2

A movie that made you cry.

Ahh well to be honest I cry very easily on movies. If there is just the slightest hint on something that might eventually be sad – I cry. But there was

PS I love you

and I made the mistake to see it in the cinema. People actually had to shush me, because I was crying too loud …

The most hilarious movie you have ever seen.

One of the most hilarious movies I have seen recently is without a doubt

Indespicable me

I also love the second part and of course the Minion Movie! These are so great!

A movie that takes place in Europe.

I love the movie

Blood and chocolate

Takes place in Romania

An animated movie that is not Disney.

One of my alltime favourite movies:

Anastasia

I just love it ♥

Movie Scavenger Hunt

Namaste Folks!

I love Scavenger Hunts and now I get to do a MOVIE SCAVENGER HUNT! Awesome 😀

I will include a trailer to every point, so you get the chance to check the movie out! Feel free to let me know if I was able to interest you in one of the movies 😉

  1. What is your favourite movie of all time?

I would never go so far to say that have only one favourite movie, because you know why just stick with one, if you can watch them all 😉 But one of the movies I like the most is:

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

This is one of the most hilarious movies ever. Monty Python is just awesome 😉

2. A movie you would watch at a first day

No doubt about that, there is no better film for a first date than:

Dirty Dancing

Love Patrick Swayze ♥

3. The last movie you have seen at the cinema

It has been a little while since the last time I went to the movies, but the last one I saw was:

The Imitation Game

Benedict Sherlock hat his best ♥

4. The most scary movie you have ever seen

I try to avoid scary movies if possible, I think I have just seen one or two in my life, but the most scary one was

Pans Labyrinth

A spanish movie that takes place at the spanish civil war. Directed by Guillermo del Torro

5. A movie that disappointed you.

I like it when they make films out of movies. I really love the Harry Potter movies, but I hate it, if they just mess the beautiful book up. I was so looking forward to

Eragon

But the movie is just…not good.

6. A movie based on a series

I have seen the movie

The A-Team

and it remained in my memory, because I remember how one scene was in Frankfurt, Germany and they used pictures of Cologne haha bit embarressing xD

7. A movie that takes place in the past.

I am a huge fan of Jane Austen, I love Pride and Prejudice and I love

Becoming Jane

The movie I fell in love with James McAvoy ♥

8. A movie that takes place in the future.

I am not really fond of these scifi movies, they tend to be about robots and terminators and that is just not my type of movie haha. But I liked

Avatar

9. Your favourite Disney movie.

I love all the Disney movies, they are awesome ^^ One of my favourites is

Tangled

and I can not wait for that new movie about the polynesian princess ♥

10. A movie you fell asleep while you were watching it.

Eh that almost never happend to me haha. I usually turn a movie off and then go to sleep, but

Twilight

was one of the most boring movies I saw lately.. seriously.

So that was my list! I hope you enjoyed it 😀
