Favorite Quotes from Movies.

I want you to listen to me very carefully, Harry. You’re not a bad person. You’re a very good person, who bad things have happened to. Besides, the world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters. We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.
– Sirius Black
 Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Movie.

Short Film Recommendation: The Boy in the Bubble.

“Flirting with spells is asking for trouble”

The Boy in the Bubble.

I’m constantly looking for Movies to increase my Collection and yesterday I found this Short Film that I absolutely loved.

The Boy in the Bubble is an enchanting story about first love, heartbreak and magic narrated by the wonderful Alan Rickman.

My Rating: 5 of 5.

If you haven’t watched it, I highly recommend it. Here’s the Teaser Trailer.

Alan Rickman, an actor whose work and versatility is an example for many.

Today my husband woke me up with the news that Alan Rickman (one of my favorites actors) died at the age of 69, to say I was surprised and in complete shock is an understatement.

The first time I watched Alan Rickman’s acting was in “Sense & Sensibility” (the adaptation from Jane Austen’s book, with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet), where he plays the role of Colonel Brandon, and immediately I became his fan.

Below is one of my favorite scenes from the movie (Colonel Christopher Brandon reading to Marianne Dashwood):

 

Besides his role in “Sense & Sensibility”, watching him like Severus Snape in “Harry Potter”, as Harry in “Love Actually”, as Hans Gruber in “Die Hard” and some others, shows his versatility as an actor and one of the reasons why he is admired by many.

Below are some of the most important scenes from his role as Severus Snape in the “Harry Potter” Movies.

 

His death is a great loss and he’ll be sorely missed.

 

If people want to know who I am, it is all in the work.

Movies to watch on Christmas Day

Since I was a little girl I remember waking up early on Christmas Day, opening all the presents with my family and after having breakfast a Marathon of Christmas Movies would follow.

After some talking, my husband and I have chosen four movies to watch during Christmas Day, and in this post I want to share with you the final list (there’s Comedy, Romance and Action).

Jingle All the Way: My husband really likes the Terminator’s Movies, I enjoyed watching some of them, but what we both agree is that Arnold Schwarzenegger is incredibly funny in Jingle All the Way.

 

Christmas with the Kranks: We love watching Tim Allen, Jamie Lee Curtis and Dan Aykroyd in the adaptation of the Book Skipping Christmas by John Grisham.

 

 

Love Actually: I absolutely love this movie, I’ve watched it several times because is a Christmas Movie with an amazing cast (including some of my favorites like Liam Neeson, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson and Colin Firth). My husband is not a big fan of the Movie, but well … one of his favorite actors is Liam Neeson (specially in action Movies like Taken).

 

Die Hard: Yes I know is an action movie, but my husband is a fan of the Die Hard Movies, to be honest I didn’t remember the movie very well but after watching the Trailer I understand why he mentioned it, the movie takes place during Christmas time, also Alan Rickman is in it (and I love Alan Rickman), so the movie made the cut for our list.

 

A very special mention goes to How The Grinch Stole Christmas (the Cartoon version), because even when originally wasn’t part of the final list, is a Classic and it has to be part of the Movies Marathon.

Have a great Christmas!

 

What I’ ve been doing during 2015 and the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” Movie Trailer.

Hi everyone!

I know I haven’t been updating much and I’m sorry for that, but I’m here now and I’ll try to update more frequently.

During this year my focus has been on my favorite activity: Reading (there’s still many books in my TBR list, I need to update the list that is currently on this Blog and start some kind of reading schedule for 2016).

One of the things I found during the last year was a lot of Harry Potter’s Fanfiction and I’ve been spending a lot of time reading it (specially the one focused on Time Travel and the Marauders Era), some of my favorite Fanfiction writers are Shayalonnie and Colubrina (the last has a story called The Green Girl that I’ve read several times).

Another thing I’ve been doing this year besides reading, going to the library, deal with the day to day activities at home, travel to Portland (in a later post I’ll share some pictures from that trip) and travel to Cancun, was to increase the size of our iTunes, Amazon Video, Google and Ultraviolet Movies libraries and, as a result, my husband and I spend hours at night and during the weekends watching movies.

I love watching Movies based on Books, so I want to share with you the trailer of one of the Movies that I’m anxiously waiting for and that will be released next year: Fantastic Beasts and where to find them, based on J.K. Rowling‘s book.

 

I’m not sure if I’ll have the chance to post again before Christmas, so I would like to take the chance to wish all a really Happy Holiday!
