BooksBlood and Chocolate( Plot behind cut )
This book is sooooo
good. I couldn't put it down, I read it in like two days (and only stopped because I had to proctor some exams and didn't want my students seeing me reading a young adult novel, even if it was a totally kick-ass one).
If you've seen the movie and didn't like, or were rather ambivalent to it don't let that taint you from the book. The book is really nothing like the movie at all, and all of the things that bugged be about the movie were completely absent from the novel. The only thing they really have in common are the names (and not even the relationships), and the term loup-garou. The novel is so much better
It's a fun, sensuous, supernatual ride, that's engaging and well written (subtle and lovely character development that had me wishing for something I totally didn't expect by the end of the novel). It's a quick read, and from the first pages you totally get drawn into the world of the loup-garou, and their concerns and struggles and relationships. Plus, I defy you not to fall in love with Vivan. She is awesome ... and in my head looked like ( Blake Lively )Movies.45
Description: After a drug-dealer (Angus Mcfadyen) abuses his girlfriend (Milla Jovovich) one too many times, she seduces her friends into killing him.
Mixed feelings about this one, there were some really good moments in it, and then some that were not so good - I'm over the camera as 'confessional' thing, and at times they movie tried too hard to be quirky and shocking which gave it an odd tone at times - but overall I think it's worth watching.
Milla Jovovich (who was looking absolutely stunning, better than she has since like 'Dazed and Confused') turned in an excellent performance. Milla Jovovich, I've always felt CAN act. I thought she was absolutely brilliant in "The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc" when she had some really meaty, really dramatic material to work with. Since then I've mostly seen her in action movies of varying quality, which she's usually good in even if the movies are shit, but she had a chance to show off her acting chops here and show them she did. ( More on .45 )
Also, Milla Jovovich has love scenes with both the Aisha Tyler and Sarah Strange characters if you're at all interested.
If you're a Jovovich fan I'd saw this is definate must see, because she's radiant and acting her ass off, and in general I would saw that it's definately worth the watch.Perfume
Good, very good movie. Unusual, but extremely capitivating. Ben Wishaw is exceptionally good as Jean Baptiste Grenault, a man born with an extraordinary sense of smell, who becomes obsessed with the idea of learning how to capture the small of people so that it can preserved for all to enjoy. I won't say much more because it is a very visual, and emtional movie and honestly I can't really think of how to descripe why I like it so much without taking away from the magic of it.Prey
- a.k.a. Bridget Moynahan fights lions while Robocop worries.
Description: An American family on holiday in Africa becomes lost in a game reserve and stalked by lions.
Um, there's really no reason to see this movie unless you really want to see Bridget Moynahan in a tank top kind sorta not really fighting a lion. Most of the movie takes place in the back of a jeep (no not like that!) which Bridget having to babysit the world's sleepiest boy and the world's most annoying angry!teenage girl while being sweaty in a tank top. Also, she's married to Robocop.
Not good. Only see it if staring at Bridget Moynahan for an hour and a half can keep you entertained no matter what she's doing, or if being irritated is fun for you.trancer21
, you could have a lot of fun mocking this one. It's really one of those movies where you're like "so much ammo, so little time".
