HAPPY NEW MONTH! - Wrapping Up April 2014

Posted on the 01 May 2014 by Limette @Limette9
The sun is shining, the house is clean and I've almost finished my Harry Potter read-a-thon already. So it's a great time isn't it? If only I manage avoiding to think about next weeks exams (well, I'm not that afraid anyway), find the perfect au pair family soon (lots of great contenders) and find a way to stay happy and relaxed during work three days in a row (nobody in their right mind works at the supermarket these days three days in a row) - everything will be better than ever! In fact, my cinema has started showing good movies in the original version feature - finally! Just this past Tuesday, I went to see Divergent with a bunch of friends and my dear sister and next week I will be celebrating my finished German exams with Transcendence (which I hope is better than what I've heard). Anyway, if everything else fails I can always sing "Just aaa SPOON FULL OF SUGAR MAKES THE MEDICINE GO DOWN" all day long. So far it has worked.

HAPPY NEW MONTH! - Wrapping Up April 2014

FIELD OF DREAMS (1989) 8.3 | One of the best sports films, since luckily, it wasn't really about sports. CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER (2011) 8.0 | Should've caught up earlier but it was still a very enjoyable and fresh superhero movie. LÉON (1994) 5.4 | Not all praised films hit my nerve and this one proved that well. CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER (2014) 8.6 | Marvel is on a roll. THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT (2009) 7.4 | Finally, a good horror movie once again. The ending had a few problems as do most horror endings, but I liked it for what it was. KAI PO CHE! (2013) 8.4 | Another good sports movie - which was more about friendship than anything. LOOTERA (2013) 9.0 | Haven't seen anything as un-sulkily yet ruthlessly romantic and heart-breaking as this from India for too long! NOT ANOTHER HAPPY ENDING (2013) 7.2 | Would watch Karen Gillian in anything and this one wasn't as bad as it looks like. Great outfits (sensing a Fabulous Fashion post). MARY POPPINS (1964) 10.0 | Someday, I will write an essay on films I regret never watching as a child - this won't happen to my future children. DUCK SOUP (1933) 2.0 | HOW this ever became a classic I will never know - there was one good joke in there, literally. Oh HOW I wanted to kill those spies. FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS (1943) 8.1 | Ingrid Bergman is an angel yet the true scene-stealer in this one was clearly Katina Paxinou. What a performance. HARVEY (1950) 9.4 | Now this one deserves to be a classic. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined the existence of such a movie. DIVERGENT (2014) 8.6 | Just as good an adaptation as expected - great action, not too much romance yet a good look at Theo James' sexy back and a perfect Shailene Woodley.


HAPPY NEW MONTH! - Wrapping Up April 2014

HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX (2007) 10.0 | I still can't get over the perfection of this one when I forget about the lack of Quidditch.

SHORTS: NO TIME (1994) | Aronofsky sure was a lot funnier than I had expected.
TV: SUPERNATURAL, S2 (2008) | Great storyline throughout and great finale - there's no way turning back for me now. HANNIBAL, HALF-WAY THROUGH S2 (2014) | It's getting better all the time, isn't it? MIRANDA, ALL SEASONS (2009 - 2013) | My new-found love for this show is undying. After a bit of a weak start in season three, it ends with a true what-I-call BANG. Please come back soon!

THE CUCKOO'S CALLING (2013) by Robert Galbraith/ JK Rowling **** | Another Strike (haha) from our Queen - I don't care about the accusations, this is a great mystery/ detective novel with great characters and a wonderful twist. Excited for the follow-up! THE FOREVER SONG (2014) by Julie Kagawa **** | The Blood of Eden trilogy has come to a wonderful end with this super suspenseful, thrilling outro. 
and finally, TIME FOR A VIDEOLast month I had some food porn for you, this time we're talking real people. And yes, watching all of this pays off - McAvoy has a fantastic little explosion just before the end. YES HE DOES!

Tell me about your month then - or have we had enough excitement with this for today?
