“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”   Leave a comment

WATTS AT THE MOVIES

​​Je suis bien contente de ne pas avoir lu le deuxième tome de la série « The Hunger Games » car j’ai tellement eu le sentiment de perdre mon temps en visionnant ce film que je ne peux m’imaginer avoir pu perdre encore plus de temps en me consacrant à la lecture du roman! Redonnez-moi deux heures trente de ma vie !!!

hunger_games_catching_fireJe vous replace de façon spatio-temporelle dans ma relation avec “The Hunger Games” : j’ai lu le premier livre avant d’avoir vu le premier film, j’ai trouvé le livre pas mal et le film une fidèle adaptation… mais le tout a changé drastiquement lorsqu’on m’informa du film japonais “Battle Royale” ! Je le vis et l’ai adoré mais j’ai surtout été dégoutée par les ressemblances entre les deux histoires au point d’en croire au plagiat! Enfin, les coïncidences existent mais c’est assez assourdissant dans ce cas-ci… Reste que j’étais tout…

Inside the very ‘ordinary human’, and ‘deeply insecure’, side of America’s most beloved, BFF superstar.

Note: this picture was taken for Vogue’s September edition this year, long before her world-shattering pixie cut.

Excerpt:

 

You can learn a lot about a person in seven hours. Little things, like the kinds of food they don’t like—arugula, eggplant, goat cheese (“I have the taste buds of a five-year-old”), which TV show they’re obsessed with (Homeland), the strange stuff they’re afraid of (“I don’t have nightmares about clowns or burglars or murderers. I have nightmares about thirteen-year-olds. They terrify me”). But you can also learn things that are superspecific. For example, she got the nickname J.Law in seventh grade, but it was only this spring that she met J.Lo while hanging out at a party one night with Jimmy Fallon. “We…

(out of 5)


Anna Paquin is a hormonal, hypersensitive, sometimes charismatic but mostly trite teenager who, on a random shopping excursion to look for a hat, finds herself in the middle of a gruesome tragedy: a woman (Allison Janney) is run over by a bus and Paquin holds her in her final moments of life. From there the young woman’s world is split in two, before and after an awareness of random, senseless tragedy, inspiring in her the need to get close to the dead woman’s best friend (Jeannie Berlin), with whom she creates a plan to sue the bus company and make sure that the reckless driver (Mark Ruffalo) who killed Janney takes responsibility for his fatal carelessness. At the same time she is also dealing with other aspects of growing up, including an emotionally fragile actress mother (a superb J. Smith-Cameron) who…

Gumballs Plays: Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen (PS3) 001   Leave a comment

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is one of the recent free games available via Playstation Plus so I decided to give it a try. I tend not to like Japanese games and upon seeing the Capcom logo I knew I probably wouldn’t like this  game. I played about the first 30 minutes and so far it’s not horrible but I can’t get over the Japan-ness of the game. What I mean is mainly the UI. It’s absolutely ugly. I hate the way the numbers look (and that they’re even there) and the flatness of everything. It reminds me of Devil May Cry, another game I might have liked if it weren’t for the UI (and horrible anime acting). It also looks a bit like Dark Souls which also has one of the ugliest UI’s of any game I’ve ever played.

Lastly I’ll just add that the game looks quite ugly at…
