http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TRU1vt8o7o&list=PLA01F605EEACAC54B

I heard that when they did this movie they had to record the music live. That means when they act they played the music in live to make the actors fell with the song and show it in the scenes.

You will find a lot of videos in YouTube show you how they do it in real life.

I love the way they dressed in the movie ^,^

Yesterday, I went to cinema to watch The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012). I didn’t read about this movie at all and I just went with my big brother to watch it. I though it as a new movie similar to Harry Potter.

I didn’t think that this movie is a series from The Lord of the Rings.  That what happen to me. I was surprised when I saw Frodo in the movie was walking to ask his grandfather about something.

After I talked about what happed to me LoL *,*. Let me introduce you to the movie. He is sitting in his chair and reading some books this the life the Hobbit had before what happen to him and started a new life which added new dangers in his life. You have to discover what happened to him !

There are a lot of actors in this movie such as Martin Freeman , Ian McKellen and others

A Movie from DIFF

I want to talk about one movie which really took my attention. This was  a movie called The Wolf Children Ame and Yuki which was made in Japan in 2012.The story is about a normal woman called Hana who fell in love with her friend when she saw him at University. She married this man, and  then she found out the truth about this man she had married.

This man was a wolf-man. That was the beginning of the family secret. Then Hana got pregnant and had two children and both of them carried wolf-DNA. After a while the father of these kids died so Hana had to move to a small town to have a normal life with her kids away from people’s eyes.

This is a gallery from the movie =) , hope you like it !

Hana’s kids are so cute, I love them *_*

TV show

This picture is from : http://cartoon-photocollection.blogspot.com/2009/03/mr-bean-cartoon-photos.html

Everybody knows Rowan Atkinson, or Mr. Bean as we call him. The Mr. Bean TV show was made from 1990 to around five years ago. It had a large audience around the whole world. Everybody has the idea that Mr. Bean is a comedian.

Rowan Atkinson wants to change the idea about him, so he will try to play new roles. These kinds of roles will be more serious, not like what we know about the funny Mr. Bean. Atkinson now is over 50 years old. That is why he will stay away from comedy roles.

I think it is really hard to forget the funny character he played in Mr. Bean series and some of his movies. In fact, the last movie by Rowan Atkinson was called Johnny English Reborn. In this movie, he was funny. That is why I loved the movie. It is really a sad thing!.

It is good to share a good moment with you so I will share a video from YouTube about Mr. Bean. This video is called Mr. Bean – Cooking spaghetti here is the link :
