“Avatar”

I like happy endings.And imagination brought to the limits.I enjoy the idea of another world,of a love story.On the other hand, i am not at all an action girl, nor one who enjoys wars between different people.”Avatar” had good and bad sides for me…I can not help but admit the unique movie, yet, the plot was based, in my opinion, on a “humans want to become more rich and they do not care if they destroy another people”.I could, however, look at things from another perspective: we are those humans who want so much and destroy no matter what.

I enjoyed the movie, but it didn’t touch my heart.I loved Pandora, the fantasy world that was brought to life, and the Na’Vi  people, it was definitely the creation of an amazing artist with a brilliant imagination.I was especially touched by the bound the Na’Vi people had with the nature.We should remember how tight our bond with nature used to be…

All in all, i definitely don’t regret seeing this movie.Here are my favorite scenes:)[taken from Leona Lewis’ music video-“I See You”]

“An Education”

I was pleasantly surprised to realize how much i loved this movie.The whole 1960’s atmosphere, the clothes, the backgrounds, the lines, the characters’ personalities…the love story who ended Jenny’s innocence and made her become, from a teenagers with dreams, in a women with real goals who had, or will, accomplish those dreams.It was not necessarily the love story that represented the essence of this adorable movie, but the transformations that took Jenny to living her life to the fullest.The actors bounded with their characters and that resulted in a beautiful movie like “An Education” is.This is definitely one of my favorite movies all times, and i am more than happy that the actrice who played Jenny had a charm, that quelque chose that brought the character to life.

“The Holiday”

From the successful Amanda,  to the always-in-love-with-the-wrong-guy Iris and their friends, changing your house for a couple of weeks near the holidays can change your life.The prescription is simple: you take a successful  trailer director[Amanda], who has recently broken with her boyfriend, from sunny L.A. and take her to the snowy England, while you take the talented journalist[Iris] in love with the wrong guy,which constantly plays with her, from the snowy England and take her to the sunny L.A.It’s simple.Amanda’s friend will eventually fall for Iris and vice versa,while Iris’s brother will fall for Amanda and, yes, vice versa.Plus a thousand of other happy moments that will make this movie more than delightful…Oh, did i mention the winter wonderland at Iris’s home near Christmas or the simply breathtaking, awe-inspiring sceneries and house decorations?Well, those should be mentioned too.

And, probably, you should also know that Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz and Jack Black fit so perfectly with their characters.Did i mention Jude Law?I think i did…

"Avatar" is the most interesting S.F. movie I saw. "An education" is on my list and I hope I will have time before school starts again to enjoy it and "Holiday" was really lovely;
I am glad that producers still make this kind of films. In my opinion, "P.S. I love you", "The notebook" and "If only" are the best love movies ever made.

I liked but didn't love avatar. It was excellent entertainment but didn't tug at my heatstrings. I really really need to see An Education, it looks incredible. If only my schedule wasn't so overwhelming...
