It all started with this :
Focused on this, and thinking to myself- What are the upcoming movies and projects?
hmm..2013- American Hustle. Alright, something to look forward to. Interesting plot. Actors…
Wait. BRADLEY COOPER? (Silver Lining Playbook Costar…again?)
I say to myself, they must be really compatible with each other due to all the high demands of Hollywood.
hmm..what else? Serena? Why haven’t I heard of that?
Oh…it WILL come out.
Susanne Bier is the director, love her. Her movies are so real, touching and down-to-earth.
Talks about a couple….Jennifer and.. BRADLEY??
Wow! I am amazed at how many films they are doing together!!
Whereas, in just 2-3 years, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence will/have co-acted together.
Just Some knowledge
Fascinating , huh? Who’s excited about what they have more to offer on-screen!?
I haven’t been keeping up with this blog for awhile now…I will begin again over the Summer.

Ever since I was a child, my parents influenced me by having tennis channel on for many hours a day. Watching tennis being played on the terre battu (clay court) would probably have to be my favorite. Therefore, my preferred
grand slam would also be Roland Garros held in Paris, France, every May. umm..As yo
u may infer, that opinion is super biased. I enjoy watching tennis and playing the sport. I played it for about 4 years and previous to that, I played badminton and won several awards for the primary school team. Thanks to my parents, they have pushed me to always remember to follow an active lifestyle.
I have ‘followed’ Rafael Nadal since the start of his early professional tennis career. I have seen him grow from an amateur to the King of Clay, and to the #1 player in the world, which means I saw him through the ups and downs.
What has always impressed me about Nadal is his surrounding of a lovely and supportive family. I know that his Dad and Mom divorced, but no matter what happened between the couple, both parents know that Nadal is ‘their’ son, which is why both try to attend their son’s tennis matches. Also, his Uncle Tony has been coaching him from the ripe age of 6, and Nadal has never changed coaches. *loyal student*
Nadal says his family and support team cocoons him from distracting mud that comes with money and fame. According to Nadal’s mother, Nadal is a very sensitive boy who has full of fears. As an example, he dislikes the dark, and he prefers to sleep with the light turned on. He also isn’t safe around lightnings; when he was a child, he’d hide under the cushions.
As for food preferences, he hates cheese tomato, and ham- which is the national dish of Spain…
Nadal’s girlfriend is very down-to-earth and hides in the limelight. She believes that traveling everywhere with her boyfriend would not be healthy for either party. She has a degree in business administration and a full time job with an insurance company in Mallorca. If she were to follow him, she imagines that there would be a risk that they might stop
getting along. She isn’t looking to be on headlines and seen around with her beau. She chooses to remain the ‘earthly’ girl that she has always been.
She says, “Even if my family asks me about Rafael, I prefer not to say much. The fact is that I don’t feel comfortable talking about these things in private. It’s what works for me, and what works for Rafael and me as a couple.”
Merry Christmas WordPress!
First of all, thanks Netflix!
I hear that it’s spreading to Scandinavia:) Awesome-Cause this movie is Swedish!
With adequate acting and filming(this film was nominated for the Oscar Foreign Film)the film captures the heart and determination of living in a world where evil reigns (during the aftermath of the WWII) and the underdog must choose to stand up or take it. Take the risk and watch it….
Brief Summary- The plot isn’t as simple as it sounds.This little gem tells the story about a boy, Erik,
who suffers at the hand of a nasty father in law (deliciously played – you really wont like him!). Erik beats up a class mate in school and gets sent away to a snooty private school where he refuses to succomb to the hazing. The toffee nosed rich kids decide to make Erik submit, but he won’t. This is where Ghandi and a pretty maid comes into the story, but see for yourself. This is not a love story, it is about a boy who doesn’t want to be like his stepfather or his tormentors and succeeds – almost.
Having watched it I found myself questioning my own evils and realized that the definition of it isn’t always so obvious. For that reason alone, it was a thought provoking and worthwhile watch. Overly dramatic at times, but still an intriguing watch.
This is where humans are put to the very brink of the fall. Are you prepared to watch the thought-provoking Evil?
Thanks for reading,

Sings the now 20-year-old Christopher on his first single, Against the Odds(2012)! Christopher’s voice is fantastic and the song that has received much praise is straight up pop music at its very best!
Prior to recording the single, Against the Odds, he did a cover version of Robyn hit ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ . It has more than 500,000 hits on Youtube currently. Quite good for the completely unknown singer.
But what happened before this huge success ? An 18-year-old guitar-player Dane just impressed a few friends and then he was persuaded to visit the Danish records. He kept practicing and practicing to play guitar with the internet as a teacher, singing all his favorite songs by Jason Mraz and John Mayer. And it’s an absolute success!
If you’re not affected by the young man’s intense voice paired with his naturalness and charm, you must be a pretty harsh critic.
It’s been half a year of hard work. Time is spent on finding just the right sound and style, a lot of hours with the guitar and the net, a lot of listening to the idols as Maroon 5 and The Script, and then also not forgetting his student-life.
Check out his hit single ‘Against the Odds’ (Congratulations on reaching more than a million views!)
and..his looks do kill.

Jean-Baptiste Maunier was born on the 22nd December 1990 at Brignoles in the Var, France.
After he graduated from highschool, Jean-Baptiste flew to the United States to spend a year at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in order to improve his acting skills.
When he entered Class Six he was asked to make a choice between various activities. He selected singing and became a member of the Petits Chanteurs de Saint-Marc, thereby following the example of his father who was himself a member of the Petits Chanteurs de Saint-Raphael.
The following story, you surely know it already. Christophe Barratier, director of Les Choristes discoved Jean-Baptiste and his extraordinary voice during a casting to find the choir who was going to sing in this film’s soundtrack. ( I shall do a movie review of this in the near future)
Jean-Baptiste left the choir in February 2005 so as to be able to devote more time to his studies, which are a priority, and to his career as an actor.
Jean-Baptiste remains very keen on the cinema! So, in April and August 2005, he took part in a television series for France 2 directed by Herve BASLE.
Jean-Baptiste also takes part in charity work, such as “Les etoiles de l’Espoir”. However, the best-known are “Les Enfoires”. They are organised to help finance the “Restos du Coeur”.
