Movies I've seen recently #7

Water for Elephants (2011)
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us Just as good as expected! As you might remember, I loved the book, so the expectations were quite high. The atmosphere is just as I imagined it when I read the book. The only complaint is that the acting wasn't the best at all times (Robert Pattinson's facial expression were a bit off sometimes...). But it's probably just me, who think that.

Across the Universe (2007)
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us Actually I'm not too crazy about musicals. Usually I think there is too much singing going on in musicals and the constant singing annoys me, but in this film it was not bad at all - probably because I knew a lot of the songs and like Beatles music in general. So if you like The Beatles, you should see it!

Hairspray (2007)
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us I only watched this movie because it was the only thing on TV and I was bored. It's just as bad, as I thought it would be. Bad songs and a stupid plot (plus John Travolta is incredibly annoying dressed up as a woman). The only good thing about this movie is James Marsden and he's not playing a big part in it, so it's not worth the time really. Watch 27 Dresses instead, if you need a Marsden fix.

When in Rome... part 3

Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled
Something modern and something very, very old. I love the colours in the first photo taken at the Maxxi Museum by Zaha Hadid. The exhibitions wasn't that interesting, most of it was just weird, but then again it's modern art, so I guess that is just the way it is. Next, we have Palazzetto dello Sport, the most fascinating and beautiful sports arena I have seen, at least on the inside. From the outside it's more special than pretty (I didn't get any photos from the outside as it was raining). I guess most of you know Colosseum... Last, but not least, a photo from Auditorium Parco della Musica. Again, no photos from the outside because of rain, but the buildings are really cool, they are sort of scarab look-a-likes (Google is your friend if you want to see a photo).

By the way, I'll be travelling around Europe this month, so probably no more blogging the next few weeks. But I guess you are used to irregular blogging on my part. Have a nice summer!
