Weekend Time

Finally. I need the weekends to relax properly now. I hope there will come some soon where I have more energy for art. I'm in the mood for reading and photographing a bit now and began to read in a new book. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. A piece of classical litterature that seems promising. I opened the book at a cafe with a cup of coffee and time flew. Before going there I looked for something pretty to photograph. Lately I've been noticing buildings reminding me of gingerbread houses. They are so cool to photograph.

What's your weekend plan?

January Favorite Movie. It

Lately and in January my preferred movie entertainment has been It. I don't mind putting this movie on day after day. It's that interesting. If you like scary movies this might be one for you so keep reading.

A non excisting clown terrorize kids in a town called Derry. It takes different shapes according to what seems scary to the kids. A group of kids share their scary episodes with each other and decide to destroy the clown. At the same time all in Derry share a fear for people dissapearing. One thing I find so interesting is that all the kids see the clown monster. I like the groups focus on supporting each other. And I like that there is a bit of humor in the movie.

This is the first part of the story based on Stephen King's book by the same name. There is also a mini television series from 1990 based on the book and it is pretty good too!

December Favorite Movie. The Terminator

Last month I loved an action movie from the 80s about machines rising against humans. A cyborg (half machine, half human)  and two humans desperatly trying to escape from it. I'm talking about The Terminator. The cyborg is programmed to kill a woman that in future will give birth to an important person the machines see as a threat.

The woman lives a peaceful life when the terminator begins his hunt for her.
The man helping Sara is also from the future. He's sent back in time to protect her.

I think one of the most interesting scenes is in the beginning. When the man steals from a begger to get something he needs. And the terminator kills to get what he needs.

This is an intense action movie. There is never a boring moment here.

Are you interested in The Terminator movies? What are your thoughts on this one? :)

Thriller Movie Reccomendation. Insomnia

I recently watched the movie Insomnia (2002 version). It's a pretty
 good movie. I was interested in reading the book. I already read other books by the same author. So I saw the movie. It is about a detective troubled with bad concious while investigating a murder. While the detective  search for a killer, this killer plays a game with him. A game that invloves meetings with just the two of them and phone calls from the killer.

 The detective's partner is killed early in the investigaion. And the killer blames the detective for that after seeing the situation. Things become very intense. The main characters struggle with lack of sleep which makes things harder. 

There were some very interesting scenes in the movie. Scenes that creates strong images in my head about the characters. Visually the movie is simple and beautiful. The locations were nice too creating a special atmosphere.

All the actors play their role convincing.  I noticed some small  roles were played very well! The girlfriend and boyfriend of the dead girl. Al Pacino plays the main character. Robin Williams the killer and Hilary Swank a local detective.

What do you think about this movie? :)

Book Pick. The Valley of Fear

  The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I'm pretty excited about this book. I liked the radio theatre version on NRK a lot! In the radio theatre a lot was missing. So reading it will be good. :) 

I've earlier read the first chapters and here is what happens. The story begins with a tricky murder case and the police need help. Sherlock Holmes and doctor Watson come to the crime scene the next day. They try to solve what's happened to the dead man found with strange clues on and around his body. Dead in his own home. There is the mysterious burned mark on his body, his wedding ring missing, muddy boot marks behind a curtain. And a blood mark on the window sill. To mention some things. And of course the strange gun.

The house itself is strange. To come and leave one must use the house bridge. The ones inside opens and closes it every day with no exception (I think). The fact that the house is difficult to enter shows that the murder was strongly motivated. I look forward to read more :)
Already there are many details. But the author presents them well.
