Erik Satie’s Gnossienne No. 1 is one of my favorite classical pieces of all time. It’s hauntingly beautiful and somehow my interpretation for the piece itself is tragic and at the same time beautiful.
The reason why I decided to blog about this is because last night, I decided to re-watch Agatha Christie’s Five Little Pigs. The book and the adaptation was beautifully done. What made it more amazing is the fact that they used Satie’s Gnossienne No. 1 as part of the adaptation’s soundtrack. And if you were able to read the book (I read this years ago), you’ll definitely love the film itself. Tragic. Very tragic indeed.
Five Little Pigs is by far the best (in my opinion) of Agatha Christie’s Poirot. Don’t get me wrong, as an Agatha Christie fan, I LOVE all of her books (Poirot & Miss Marple), but this particular one captured me in a way (not that I can relate). So yes, I am recommending this book and the adaptation. Of course, be sure to read the book FIRST before watching. ;]
Right now, I’m waiting for the release of the remaining Agatha Christie: Hercule Poirot episodes. Some of the anticipated adaptations is in the upcoming season. Watch out for that!
Note: You can watch Five Little Pigs on Youtube. ;]
I am inlove with POTC: On Stranger Tides! Johnny Depp is as usual amazing and still hot as Captain Jack Sparrow. What I liked about the 4th POTC movie is the story itself. I love reading stuff about legends and most especially, the mermaids. Well, the mermaids in the movie is not your Disney mermaid, Ariel. It’s the darker version of it and from what I read years ago, the real legend.
I love the story of Syrena and Philip. I actually like their story more than Elizabeth and Will’s. I wonder what happened to Philip in the end. Syrena saved him by kissing him so that he can breath underwater. Ahhh, love. I can’t wait for the next film (if it will push through) I hope Syrena and Philip’s story arc will still be there.
Oh, I’m so sorry for the lack of updates. I’ve been busy the last few days. I’ll make up for it soon. I have some things to blog about anyway.
I was in the mood to watch some Royal Family related movies so I decided to watch The Queen starring Helen Mirren as the title role, Queen Elizabeth II. I was struck by the facial similarities of both women. No wonder they chose Helen Mirren to portray HRH Queen Elizabeth II. Anyway, I suggest watching this movie if you still haven’t.
PLOT: Diana the ‘People’s Princess’ has died in a car accident in Paris. The Queen and her family decide that for the best, they should remain hidden behind the closed doors of Balmoral Castle. The heartbroken public do not understand and request that the Queen comforts her people. This also puts pressure on newly elected Tony Blair, who constantly tries to convince the monarchy to address the public.
I just love this movie! It’s a really moving film. Tho I’m not British, I appreciate the movie and even the real story behind it. To be honest, I’m the type of person who loves to read about the past: Royalty, conspiracy theories, interesting people, about a particular era such Regency Era.
Films like Elizabeth The Virgin Queen (films 1 & 2), and this, The King’s Speech may be historically inaccurate, but I guess it could pass if you know the real story behind it. I guess the writers & director did it on purpose to add drama, you know? =)
Firth plays King George VI, who, to overcome his stutter, is introduced to Lionel Logue, an unorthodox speech therapist played by Geoffrey Rush. The two men become friends as they work together, and after his brother abdicates, the new king relies on Logue to help him make a radio broadcast at the beginning of World War II.
Anyway, here’s the trailer:
Currently listening to The King’s Speech Soundtrack ~ Glad I found one!
Can you believe that the Harry Potter Series is about to end? Whenever I think of it, it saddens me. I grew up to Harry Potter. I was 16 or maybe 15 when I first read the book. So thinking that HP is ending this July, is just a total sadness for all HP fans. But ofcourse, fans like me, the magic continues even after the Harry Potter movies has ended.
Anyway, for those who are a fan of Daniel Radcliffe, you can see him in two more films set to be released this 2011. One thing’s for sure is his upcoming film, The Woman in Black.
PLOT: The story follows a young lawyer, Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe), who is ordered to travel to a remote village and sort out a recently deceased client’s papers. As he works alone in the client’s isolated house, Kipps begins to uncover tragic secrets, his unease growing when he glimpses a mysterious woman dressed only in black. Receiving only silence from the locals, Kipps is forced to uncover the true identity of the Woman in Black on his own, leading to a desperate race against time when he discovers her true identity.
