On the Big Screen...


Definitely very high up on my TO-DO List... Not only about an Austrian sports legend, but also with one of my favourite actors and from a great director!

EDIT: Saw it. Loved it. Go see it. And watch the OV! After reading about all the work Brühl had to do to really sound like Niki Lauda, I wanted to see (hear) it in person. All I can say is... WOW! What a great job done! Not only did they make him look like Lauda (I never really knew what Lauda looked like before his accident but I saw some pictures and my mom said the resemblance was amazing) but also had him talk EXACTLY like him. Just to be fair, the rest of the cast was amazing too. Hemsworth as James Hunt was a fantastic choice. They really worked out the rivalry very well, but even more they portrayed them excellently as individuals and also in their "relationship"... And do I really have to mention the music by Hans Zimmer?! Not really, I guess. But no good movie without a perfect soundtrack. Even if you're not into Formula 1 or any of the people in this movie, still go and watch it. I don't like this sport much and never cared so much about the Lauda legend after all - the main reasons to go were Daniel Brühl and Ron Howard in my case - but even without all that it's great entertainment!

On the Big Screen...

I'd watch this one for Mads Mikkelson alone but it seems like a pretty good movie altogether...

On the Big Screen....

Der Geschmack von Apfelkernen

Won tickets for this one last night. Though it was beautifully filmed and I kinda liked the storyline (never read the book, though), it wasn't convincing enough and the end was kinda... sudden and strange. The whole film seemed so... strained and affected... The house was really beautiful, though. I 'd buy this one for sure...

Sound Garden...



OMG! Love Birdy's new album: Fire Within. Literally every single song on it! That does not happen too often, usually it's just a few... Highly recommend it!!! So here's Wings for a start....

On the Big Screen...

EDIT (10/02/2013): Saw it last night. Loved it. The b&w, the music, the storyline, the characters, their actors... Everything. And most of the time it was like watching myself - I could so relate to the problems of the main character. Really felt like this was about my life (sometimes)...
