This is it! I've finally watched Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises on DVD and here is what I chattered about it on film. (I thought I would do a lot of spoilers, but seems like I ended up not giving much away)
Checking my Google reader feed, I found out about the new animated poster for the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins'sCatching Fire on itismovie.com . It is definitely one of my most awaited films.
The cast is going to include Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks (the more of her, the better), Stanley Tucci (also him), Sam Claflin, Willow Shields, Donald Sutherland and etc. from the prequel The Hunger Games, and Jena Malone, Toby Jones and etc. as addition to the sequel.
Update on Nov 26, 2012: I've removed the animated poster from this post due to the fact that with my simple blog design everytime you load the page the sound goes up and it's juuust annoying, even for me. Don't you think so? (and the sound also can be heard whilst I am in the editing this post right this moment??? How come, the poster isn't even on any page??) Click on the itismovie link for the poster. Sorry for the long explanation of the poster removal. I hope you're having a great day.
Today being the regional election day, we're having Wednesday off two weeks in a row. Gladly, I have only one class (French - the only class I talk about on my blog, how strange) on Wednesdays, thus eliminating the requirement of making up the lost time later on weekends. Anyway, I've just voted at my sectional voting booth and I hope you have done so too for fulfilling your rights and duty (cliche).
Saw this Oct 2007 edition of LODOWN Magazine that had some really inspirational photos and also ads running in it, which I really enjoyed. It seems like it's still cool now too.
I am posting the trailers of the movies I am excited about that are coming soon. (well, if there is the trailer, the movie is obviously coming out soon) So, here are the ones that I am waiting to see:
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
This one is based on the Trilogy (now, it's going to be a six-book series, the last one gets released in 2013, I think) written by Cassandra Clare, The Mortal Instruments - City of Bones, City of Ashes and City of Glass. Good book in a Young Adult genre and I couldn't help but research who was playing who. Guess what, Jonathan Rhys Meyers is playing Valentine Morgenstern, the antagonist in the trilogy. How great is that? Other exciting cast includes: Jared Harris as Hodge Starkweather, Robert Sheehan as Simon Lewis and of course Godfrey Gao as Magnus Bane (I've found about him while I was watching Fashion TV, oh what a way to discover M.B.).
Based on the first book of a trilogy-to-be by Stephenie Meyer (somehow I read it too), The Host is a romantic sci-fi movie that might or might not pleasure all the movie watchers.
Oz: The Great and Powerful
No need to say anything except its bright and talented young group of actors and actresses cast.
Since I've started reading English novels and got my hands on Sir A.C.Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, I've always been a Sherlock-Holmes-Enthusiast. Earlier this year (January 2012 to be exact), I was introduced to BBC's Sherlock and got utterly hooked. Partially, no matter how small it may be, it was the composed music of the series. Me being me, I've always had Irene's Theme (from A Scandal in Belgravia) since then on my ringtone.
After 10 months of solid and truthful commitment, I've just changed my ringtone. To a classical piece this time - J.S.Bach's Sonata No. 1 in G minor Adagio. Strangely enough, it was still in the Sherlock (The Reichenbach Fall). Oh well, you can't help against your nature. And ironically, I'd never enjoyed Bach until now.
Update (Nov 19): I've been like jumping up when the violin started the whole day when my phone rang. Getting used to it, getting used to it.
A good way to spend the weekend is to go out of town with your family or friends. So we did. This time, we went to Manjusri Monastery (Манзушир Хийд check in on foursquare) and hiked and played around in the snow for a day.
Get there before the real winter comes and it becomes impossible to go even during the day this year. Here are some pictures.
The finale of the Twilight Saga on film Breaking Dawn: Part 2 has just opened in theaters, and I had the opportunity to get an extra ticket since I haven't gone through getting an advance ticket. Lucky for me. The hall was fully packed, like no seat were left untaken.
Nomin is here, so why not we film a tag video. For real this time. I've definitely noticed that we might carry way too many stuff in our bag that might seem needless. But thinking about omitting anything from there is somehow impossible to manage afterwards. Things like journals, gums, tissues and hand sanitizers are impossible to part with. Well, there wasn't any snack or food in there. (even though I might occasionally carry an apple or mini pack of Oreo)
Going through someone's bag can sometimes be interesting I hope.
As part of the class we take, Translation Practice or Translation Methods (whichever you want to call it), we were given the official Mongolian and English titles of the newly constructed (not very new, but this summer) Government. Thought I'd type it out and share it with you. I hope someone find it helpful.
When a social convention of sharing a meal together happens for girls, normal girls, the conversation is bound to get involved into the current event, recent movies and the celebrities in it. Today, for us we started with Skyfall, then proceeded to Daniel Craig as Bond and Peirce Brosnan as Bond, then the shining and talented actors from Britain in Hollywood. Aaaand we ended up on Tom Hiddleston, eventually - my-current-but-long-standing celebrity crush.
See how girls squirm seeing some cool photos of him. (Featured here are Haliun and myself, taken by Gegee)
You know, when I was a kid how my mom keeps changing and redecourating our home baffled me. Now I think I am that way. Once I got out of my bed just before midnight to rearrange stuff in my room. This time, I've painted. Not the entire room, but the door and the window frame. Here you'll get some snapshots of my work on the door. Tada!!!! The colour is Tikkurila K375, by the way (I think).
Fridays aren't really good weekday for my classmates. It's such a long day to cope up through, not mentioning the last period - Economic Diplomacy - is literally a sleeping pill of a lesson. But despite that, good things happen. For the full set of pictures taken this day, click here.
You know what, having only one period on Wednesday in the afternoon sucks - which can be fixed by good company or moving it to another weekday, so we could have a free weekday. The second one sounds a lot better. I hope you have enjoyed your Wednesday.
