One of my favorites movies ever is “Elizabethtown” with Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst. It´s a beautiful story about life, love and a perfect story that shows that when we think life is giving us lemons, it really means a chance to change and move forward. To learn from the “bad moments” and enjoy them as well as the good ones, because life is a balance mix of the two. Every time I ask someone about this movie I have mix opinions, or you rather hate it and don´t understand it, or you love it. It´s that kind o movie. For me is a beautiful piece with a lovely message. I pick the last part because I love the simple words they use, hope you enjoy it. As always.. SPOILER ALERT and don´t keep reading if you didn´t watch it. Someday I would love to make the road trip of the movie and I recommend you the soundtrack of the film. Happy easter everyone!!
Love, Nina 🙂
Is not a new that I love to take inspiration from everywhere. Films, tv series, and everything in a audiovisual format is a good source of inspiration for me. Some movies have really good lines that “hit” me in a particular moment, in a particular way. Things that you need to listen in that day, at that hour.. So I thought it would be fun to share this “special inspiration lines” with you, maybe because are cool, romantic, hilarious or seem to me a beautiful message. Here is my first movie pick: Pride and Prejudice (the 2005 adaptation). That perfect scene with Mr. Darcy and Lizzie in the meadow at the sunrise …(p.d: Thanks Jane Austen for so much love!!!) Spoiler alert! If you didn´t watch the movie don´t keep reading..Do you have your own “hit lines” of a movie? Share it please!! Hope you enjoy and have a lovely weekend.
Tomorrow are the Oscars. Is the top event of the year for everyone working in the american movie industry. I have to admit that I grew up watching the Oscars and the red carpet and I also wanted to work in the movie industry for a while. I remember that when I was in school, and in the time tv cable was not an option, we watched the ceremony through a local channel and it was awesome, big. Then E! Entertainment arrived and the red carpet was a must see in a hot February Sunday night. Nowadays I am no more a so fanatic Oscar girl, but I have to say that I will watch it tomorrow for sure! Here is a top 10 list of movies that in the past won the Oscar of “best picture” and for me are a must see movie. Enjoy your re watch!
1. BEST PICTURE OF 1943 – CASABLANCA.
2. BEST PICTURE OF 1994 – FORREST GUMP
I have been thinking about to post something useful for Valentine´s Day, and I thought it would be fun to give you my ten first choices of movies to watch in this day. I think is a good idea to spent the day with your Valentine or with yourself watching lovely movies. Maybe in this list you can see some movies that are label as “no so Valentine”, but for me the important filter to did this list, was that in some point of the story, love was involve in some way. So if you are alone in this Valentine´s Day or with someone, remember that the most important thing is to love yourself first and then you would be capable to give that love back to the world.
2. The Notebook, I think is difficult to find some girl in the 20´s or 30´s that this movie didn´t like it at some point. I have to admit though that I like it, but the part when they are old is not my favorite, but Rachel Mcadams and Ryan Gosling are perfect together.
6. Before Sunset. This movie is so sweet and so romantic! Did I mention is in Paris? Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke are so perfect. Is a must to watch “Before Sunrise” which is the first movie. But my favorite is the second one 🙂
9.The time travelers wife. Rachel Mcadams is perfect for romantic movies! and I love this movie because of its magic and probably because Eric Bana is so gorgeous here!10. What dreams may come. The first time I watched this movie I really cry, but I really love the message that nothing is impossible when you have love in your heart (even you can cross hell for love).
Happy Valentine´s Day tomorrow and remember be your own Valantine!!!
