Never have I been looking forward for so long to see a film and never have I had such high expectations before I see a film. I try to ignore listening to the critics, try to avoid watching trailers. But I had not heard one bad word about Inception and I’m not surprised. It didn’t disappoint!

It exceeded my expectations by miles. I even dare to say that it might be the best film I see this year. Last year it was Inglorious Basterds.

Inception was more than two hours long but I was sitting in suspense pretty much the whole time and the theatre was so quiet even though it was full.

What you see is unbelievable but what if it was true? It could be true, couldn’t it? It’s amazing. Makes you think who comes up with these kind of stories. How much dope have they taken?

Ok, so it was kind of hard not to be exposed to the trailer or the posters so I thought a lot about the scene when the earth folds would happen. This wasn’t an enormous wave, it was a piece of built land. It didn’t take very long. And it was only one of many cool effects.

I actually thought it was another disaster film where the world is going under, but no, it wasn’t. Thanks for that.

Now, earlier this year I watched Shutter Island, also with Leonardo DiCaprio in the main role. The characters he plays, as Teddy Daniels (Shutter Island) and Mr Cobb (Inception), have some similarities in regards to the world they sometimes live in and their family issues. Just something that came to mind. And if you see both you might agree.

Inception, though, is a must-see film and preferably on the big screen.

Sweet dreams!

You’ve Got The Love

Love!Love!Love! So sweet! So relaxing!

Of all the remixes I’ve heard of You’ve Got The Love by Florence and The Machine, this one is the best.

I liked the original but this one, I love.

The original came out about a year ago, probably more, and radio played it non-stop a lot. Different remixes followed and a collaboration with Dizziee Rascal performed at the BRITS and Glastonbury 2010.

For my electro heartย  I got this ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank you DDOA for intoducing it to me.

My summer tune of 2010?! I saw this on one of those music channels a sleepless night a while back and it caught my attention. First, it was the lyrics “I want to be a Billionaire so f***ing bad”. Second, it was Bruno Mars’s sweet harmonic voice and cute face. Third, Travie McCoy’s eccentric looks.

It made me smile, it made me laugh. It’s a ‘feel good’ tune. And the video goes with it. California summer. It makes me want to be there, sitting on the edge of the skate-board ramp.

The acoustic version, better? It’s brilliant, a proof of real talent, no gimmicks.

And the acoustic version

What I wonder, is each one of these tweets must be more than 140 characters. I haven’t counted but from the looks of it, definitely more than 140 characters. Really, really cool. #TwitterArt
