Disney’s Jungle Book

Hi Guys! Today I’m going to tell you guys something about when I went to  “The Jungle Book” this Wednesday.

Last Wednesday me and my boyfriend decided to go check out the newest Disney movie! I’m a huge Disney freak and I absolutely adore the Disney classics. That’s why I definitely wanted to see this anticipated movie in cinemas. We first went to Bavet. This is a small Spaghetti place. You can only eat spaghetti there, but it is absolutely delicious.

After this incredible Spaghetti adventure me and my boyfriend went to a small movie shop beneath the cinema complex. This shop is awesome, it’s like you’re walking into a very very small version of comic con. Last week I saw the last episode of “The walking dead” and I really wanted to know what happened in the comics after the amazing but devastating ending of the sixth season. (don’t worry I’m not one of those horrible human beings that will always end up telling you all the spoilers you don’t want to hear) …

[SPOILER ALERT]

But I can tell you one thing. It’s not Daryl nor Carl or Rick. It’s non of the girls, it’s not the ginger. And Maggie is very very sad about who dies… 😉

[NO MORE SPOILER ALERT, YOU CAN CALM DOWN!]

Back to the new Disney movie! After buying myself a medium popcorn and some frozen strawberries, we went to our seats. I had almost finished all my popcorn BEFORE the movie started and then… The Disney theme song. Goosebumps every time..

The movie was one of the best Disney movies I have seen in a long time. I was very amazed by the acting performance of  Neel Sethi. This kid has an incredible talent. Acting in a movie in which you are the only thing that isn’t animated, wow. This kid gave an amazing performance playing against a green screen, I can’t even imagine how hard this must be.   Not only this jaw-dropping performance blew me away but the CGI was breathtaking. The animals, especially Baloo and Bagheera, in this movie looked so real that I sometimes forgot that they were animated. I can honestly say that these graphics are maybe the best graphics in film that I’ve seen so far. I don’t know how they did it, but I will definitely look for an article of documentary to find out! Also, the voices fit the animals perfectly. The british accent for the panther is a perfect match and I think that Bill Murray might have been a bear in a previous life. His voice is the best bear voice I’ve ever heard. And last but not least, the baby wolves… They were A-DOR-ABLE! I’m not exaggerating, they are enormously cute!

This movie was truly amazing. The acting performance by such a young and talented boy is stupefying. The voices fit the animals perfectly. The CGI is astonishing. This movie gives you a nostalgic feeling and I will guarantee you that you will walk out of that cinema with a smile the size of Baloo’s butt! So get in your car and drive to the nearest Cinema! Right now!!

Hope you enjoyed my post, give it a thumbs up and share if you want to make me happy!

Nine Favorite Christmas Movies.

Hye!

Sorry that it’s been a such a long time. But because of my terrifying exams getting closer and closer (SO STRESSED), I need to spent most of my time behind my desk. I don’t really have a life at the moment so I don’t have very thrilling and interesting things to tell you guys. But because I’m such an incredible Christmas Freak, I am going to devote my blog to my favorite christmas movies. You might know this already but I’m a huge movie addict and I love watching the best movies over and over again. The combination of MOVIES and CHRISTMAS is a little bit of heaven for me. So here are my 9 favorite Christmas movies. I strongly recommend you watching them, you will definitely not regret it!

LOVE ACTUALLY.

This Christmas movie is definitely my favorite christmas movie of all time! Why, you might ask? Well, let me tell you!

  1. I love British movies. I just love(!) the British accent and I find that British Christmas movies are the best Christmas movies there are.
  2. I love Hugh Grant. This guy is one of my favorite British actors. I adore his accent and his acting skills. The role of prime minister in this movie is just made for him.
  3. I really like the concept of different stories that are mixed up and come together at the end of the movie. I also like ‘New years Eve’ and ‘Valentine’s day’.
  4. I love the song at the end of the movie! This song is my favorite christmas song. (All I want for christmaaaaaaas, iiiiiiiiis yoouhoooooou!)
  5. I also love the actor that plays the little drummer boy. I already loved him but when I noticed that he plays in ‘the maze runner’ and in ‘game of thrones’ as well… I loved him even more. Also, his accent is to die for.
  6. I just love romantic christmas movies and this movie is just one of the best combinations of love, friendship and christmas there is. Many people might agree with me.
  7. I also love Liam Neeson. But beware : He will always find you … and Kill you (reference to the movie ‘Taken’ for the non-movie addicts reading this blogpost )

It’s just a lot of love for ‘Love Actually’ !!

A Christmas Carol. 

A DISNEY movie about CHRISTMAS written by CHARLES DICKENS in which the leading role is played by JIM CARREY. AND you can watch the movie in 3D every CHRISTMAS EVE. I don’t think that I need to explain why I ADORE this movie. I watch this movie every christmas eve, and it never gets old.

Home Alone. 

This one might not come as a shock. But Yes, I really enjoy this movie. This boy can always make me smile. The way he stopped those christmas criminals is unforgettable.

Frozen.

I’m an enormous Disney fan and I have always cherished the disney princess movies. I might be an adult but I will never stop admiring Disney movies. And when this movie came out, I couldn’t wait to go see it. A SnowQueen. Addictive Songs. A talking Snowman. An adorable reindeer that reminds me of my dog. That’s all I need.

The holiday.

I love this movie because it’s partly filmed in England and partly filmed in L.A. I adore both these locations and I have a little crush on Kate winslet. This is a typical romantic movie with a touch of christmas magic. I love the story line and this movie is really nice to watch with a nice cup of hot chocolate!

ps : I love Kate Winslet.

The nightmare before Christmas.

As a Disney addict, this one can’t be forgotten. Tim Burton movies are beautiful and I really enjoy watching them. Halloween and Christmas are my two favorite holidays and a movie that combines both must be epic right? Well, it is EPIC indeed. The songs are really good and I always sing along when I hear them. I really adore the story line and I will never stop watching this beautiful disney movie. It’s a real classic.

Santa-Jack

The Grinch. 

When I was a little girl, i was terrified of this green monster that stole christmas. But when I got older I started to really like this movie. I started to love the characters and the story more and more. And the fact that Jim Carrey (one of my favorite actors) plays the lead in this movie, makes it complete. This is a beautiful story about a green monster/man that wasn’t loved enough and became very bitter. But when a little girl teaches him about love and the christmas spirit he begins to realize he was wrong about the world.

Christmas with the Kranks.

I really watched this movie TOO much. It’s a really funny family movie that will make you laugh every time you watch it.

Get Santa.

I just watched this movie last week. And I fell in love with it immediately. It’s a movie about Santa that crashes with his sledge and when he tries to get his reindeer and go back to the northpole, the police puts him in prison because they think he’s a crazy Santa claus wannabe. One little boy and his father make it their mission to save Santa and most of all save Christmas. This movie is British and that’s one of the reasons I treasure it so much. It’s very funny and very relaxing. It reminds you of what Christmas stands for, what love is and mostly reminds you of the fact that even the baddest people in the world were once just little boys and girls asking Santa for bikes and dolls.

Bond… James Bond.

Hye!

Long time, no see.

Today I’m going to talk about London and about the new movie ‘Spectre’.

Daniel-Craig-Leaving-James-Bond

Yesterday I went to see Spectre, the new blockbuster from the James Bond series.
This movie has everything a Bond movie should have. Beautiful and intriguing women, spectacular car races, bloody gun fights and marvelous suits.

This is one of the best James Bond movies yet. Before I saw this movie, ‘Skyfall’ was my absolute favorite because of the breathtaking scenery that was used in the movie. Scotland, so beautiful! Because of the beautiful location that was used in the movie, I thought this was definitely going to be the best James Bond film ever made… But then I went to see Spectre!

The movie starts in Mexico. James Bond is walking around Mexico City during ‘Dias de los muertos’. Not only do I Love Mexico (especially the food (I’m a real guaca-monster)), I also LOVE this holiday which celebrates the dead.  So, the movie immediately had my attention. The first fight scenes were very nicely filmed and you couldn’t get your eyes of the screen. After that first scene, just like in every James Bond movie ever made, the intro song started playing. Normally I really like the James Bond theme songs, but this time I was disappointed. I didn’t really like Sam Smith’s song…

But that’s the only negative thing I can say about SPECTRE. The plot is very good, everything falls into place. You can tie different movies together. The new Aston Martin is MARVELOUS. I didn’t understand that boys could fall in love with a car. But I changed my mind because yesterday I fell in love with the new model from Aston Martin. The car race which took place in the heart of Rome was magnificent and it was definitely my favorite part about the movie. And as if it couldn’t get any beter… James Bond went looking for clues in Austria. The snow, the mountains, the sky… definitely as beautiful as the Scotland scenery.

What I also loved about the movie is the performance from the actor who played Q. I am always very impressed by gadgets and the way Q tries to find clues is very nice in this movie.

Although most James Bond movies are extremely predictable… (Bond always gets the woman, Bond always wins the car races and  James just ALWAYS wins) … the movie was really good and less predictable than any other James movie ever made. I was extremely suprised and I’m not planning on watching this movie just once.

I was already planning on going to London this year with my boyfriend. And after seeing this Bond movie, I really really really want to go. I also want to go before the new Harry Potter Spin-off comes out. I already went to London once, but my boyfriend never did… So this is the perfect opportunity to hop on the Hogwarts train. I can’t wait to drink a warm cup of tea with a delicious piece of cake. I can’t wait to walk through the enchanting streets and talk like an intelligent English(wo)man. I can’t wait to visit every Harry Potter location in London there is. I can’t wait to hear the sentence “MIND THE GAP” 87 times a day. I can’t wait to go drink a refreshing beer in a small and intimate pub. And i definitely can’t wait to just stroll around in the small and bumpy streets in London.

One of the other reasons I want to go back to this magical City, is because I have never been to WARNER BROS STUDIOS (the place where they filmed most of the scenes in the Harry Potter movies) and I also want to buy some new wands to add to my small collection.

Hope you enjoyed my little blogpost about Bond and London. I’m going to make myself a cup of tea and lay down in the sofa.

It is our choices… that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
