I’ve seen Serendipity again. In my memories, it was better than it was in reality. I like the word « Serendipity » either. It could have been a good movie, but too much scenes were cut and… Well the story is a good idea but the movie were not so well done I think. But again a movie which shows there might be « signs » but it is our way of thinking which is modified when we focus on somebody… This week end it was Halloween but also on the 1st a way to remember dead people… I went to the cimetary on this « special » day for the first time of my life , and I never saw it so crowded, it was like a party. It was so weird, because usually when you go in a place like this it is peacefull and you can be alone to think… I saw Close Encounters of the Third Kind. And I have to admit I was surprised 'cause it was really good and I really liked it ! And I could see that a lot of movies or shows of today still take ideas in this movie. For example Men In Black with the sunglasses… and also The 4400 people who disappear on different periods on time, and be back on the same day without getting old.

Isn't it ironic that my computer couldn't start anymore the day after I've seen Fight Club. The thing to know is that my computer is as important for me than IKEA furniture for the narrator of the movie… Well, I kept calm 'cause I knew someday it would happen and a friend helped me to fix it :) Well, I have to admit that Fight Club is a really good movie. A criticism of consuming society and I liked it. Try to give a reason of why we live and for what… And of course the surprise to discover who Tyler Durden is in reality :) Well, I really enjoyed it and particularly the moment where they threatened an asian guy who worked in a grocery store, in order to make him continue his studies to become a vet. Of course it was pretty rude to do that, but what kind of guys would care so much for another guy they didn't know. I find that so touching… Some quotes of the movie :  » You are not your job. You are not how much you have in the bank. You are not the content of your wallet. You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. The things you own end up knowing you. Seft-improvement is masturbation. Seft-destruction might be the answer. In Tyler we trusted » Well, I've have to see it again :) I was finally able to see the music video of one of my favorite song of Greenday since they choose it as a single :) I was pretty happy of that choice. Wake me up when september ends. Well that's a pretty nice video :) And I couldn't have seen it otherwise. Story of two teenagers loving each other and who would be separated… And the music goes along well with all that… I also finally see the famous movie Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain. What I kept in mind after seeing it, it's that it's tiny things which make people happy everyday, and that is soooo true, well for me at least lol. *Kaylee inside, the fans of the show Firefly would understand* Receiving a letter, a phone call, walking in a place you like, seeing a rainbow… Those kind of tiny things which could make your day :) And that other people could contribute to happiness of other people, just by doing tiny things, but that can be big for others :) And of course, I liked the story of Amélie and her future boyfriend, that was soooo cute ! And I really wanted them to be together ! I was screaming « Go Amélie goooooo » lol :) I really fell in love with Mathieu Kassovitz after that movie. He was the actor playing the boyfriend of Amélie. A quote of another french movie Jeux d'enfants that I liked. Guy : « Do you believe in love at first sight ? » Girl : « Yeah, of course. » Guy : « You're so naiiiiiive. » To finish, pretty long update today ! I've seen Match Point. The last movie of Woody Allen with the so beautiful Scarlett Johanson *thud* Well I liked it. Story of a simple guy who have some luck by meeting a rich girl, but he is more interested in another girl and begins to be unfaithful. Classic story and we can understand everybody – except the wife who is so annoying about wanting to be pregnant lol. But afterwards, he is being so lost that he will do the worst ! That was a surprise, and if you've liked the character before, it is surprising if you still like him after that… And we are not surprised that he is being haunted, and not happy afterall… But eventhought it is kind of punishment, it'd be great if the truth was revealed… But it is all a question of luck sometimes in life :)

Well, the great thing about the earlier night in winter is that we can see the Eiffel Tower shining more often :) I love that !

Just would like to say, that sometimes, unexpected things happen, friends can be really surprising people, just doing some little things you didn't expect to make you happy :) So I just would like to thank them for being there for me. And especially Sfree who brought me some of my favorite cakes today, thank you sweetie :)

I discover the TV Show Scrubs recently, it is pretty good :) And I love the credits « I can't do this on my own, No I'm no superman » That is so true… For each one of us !

The thing that I don't like with winter is that it is night all the time !

I've read in a newspaper that WWF had made a study : on 3 generations of people, their blood contain toxic products… Products that can be in a lot of things we use every day… So they'll have to make more studies to determine exactly what can be toxic… But the companies which made those things aren't so happy about it, cause money is money I guess. So, here is how I see the future of our planet, without talking of wars and The day after Tomorrow, I just see a green planet, full of money, of bills without any life on it… ( I said green, because the first money which came to my mind is the dollar, but if you take bills from Switzerland it would be more colorfull and shiny :) )

I've seen the Season premiere of Alias today (5th season). It was much more better than what I expected even if Alias is not what it used to be.

**spoiler 501**
Sydney and Vaughn dance on « Once upon a dream » during a mission. Vaughn said he have practised dance for their wedding. Finally, Vaughn is not here anymore… and I thought, the song was appropriate 'cause they will never dance to their wedding… It was finally just a dream…
**end of spoiler 501**

People have dreams and could be disappointed when those aren't realized, for a lot of different reasons… But it is in the nature of human being to believe in something. It is what maintains him in life… We are nothing if we just live without a goal to accomplish. All those dreams is part of our universe. Some people won't understand it, but we don't have to listen to them 'cause others do and that is what matters.

And moreover, I do believe that some things will never change… well, at least for a few years, so let's enjoy them now!

and don't look back !

Sometimes we feel moody, like in the movie Lost in Translation,
lost and fed up with everything and the moment after, we feel relieved
and back to life again. That is why I like this movie so much because
it reflects the moments where we have the impression to be alone and
that finally everyone lives…

Sometimes great things could happen, meet a friend suddenly in the
street or a new person and that will totally make your day. Sometimes,
we remember those moments from weeks to weeks, and see how things
change… Realize how all these moments are unique and that we have to
take all of them. We can feel nostalgic, but finally
other great things happen again just to make us believe in Life.
Usually we do a point of changing things only on special events like
birthdays, christmas and so on… because we wonder where we were the
last few years for the same events. But changes arrive everyday…

So here we are again, just to know the following of the story…

First of all, I have to say that Veronica Mars rocks ! I washed the half of the 1st season and I really like it ! Otherwise, I saw Crash. This movie is pretty good. It is a reflexion on the nature of people. We follow different characters, and they cross the life of the others, one way or another… And we see that nobody is all black or white… all nice or bad… And there's also a criticism of racism… We can see that the bad can be very human in some situations, for his family for exemple… that we don't know all about him… And that even good people, who seem perfect, can make big mistakes… And all this is treated in different fields : love, family, work, gun affairs… It also shows how the simple sentence of somebody, that we know or not, could have consequenses on our own life… The ending makes me think of the end of a show, with music and a turn to each character to see how it lasts. It is definitively a really good reflect of life. By the way, this movie makes me think of something which happened in the tramway the other day. A chinese woman ( well she was probably not, but at least had some origins ) was sitting with her luggage and as it took too much place to allow somebody else to sit next to her, some people ( and not only one ! ) insulted her… That might be some maneers in her country but not here ! I was really suprised 'cause that has nothing to do with origins, I would have done totally the same thing and nobody would have insulted me the same way they did to her… Or maybe they would have found something else… So rude !

I made a wall inspired by the music video from the song « Bad day ». The
link between the wall and the music video is the red umbrella which
became a symbol for me.

And don't forget that even if magic moments don't last, it's worth it
to live them. Life is not so easy so we'd better take the more fun and
happiness moments we can ;)

Just wanted to tell something I read somewhere that I find so true :
« Friens are like stars. We can't always see them. Nevertheless, we know they are here. »
So keep that in mind when you feel lonely ;)

Last thing for today : I made an avatar with the picture of Marissa in The OC holding her purple Care Bear. I love the way she is, in her room, looking at it, just thinking :)

A new season begins ! Life begins around again and I did so many things that I didn't have real time to update the LJ ;) So first of all, I did a blend for a Battle :

I've seen differents movie recently : Broken Flowers I liked it, it has the same low rythm than Lost in Translation. We follow Don during his journey, like he turns back to see what he left behind. It is funny to discover how the women with whom he shared a part of his life are so different from one to another. I also like the contrast of  living of the different persons. More than the life of Don, it is a description of the society, of different ways of living. I also really appreciate the way of filming : a lot of images, and not so much dialogues. So we really have feelings on the situations as we were in it. And that is a really good point. Some moments are very funny… ( like when Don is obscessed with the pink color and thinks the guy is his child and so on… ) and all is just suggest by images :) The last thing I want to say about this movie is what Don consider as a « sign » : the name of a ex's dog which is exactly the same than his friend who forced him to do all this trip. Often in life we see sort of « signs » that are not really ones, but it reflects what we feel. It is not the best movie, but there is a reference to that in Fools rush in (Mathew Perry, Salma Hayek) « there are signs everywhere ». Also in the middle of The OC season 2, when Summer sees a child playing at the airport and makes her think to Seth. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang First of all, I have to say that I really like Robert Downey Jr so it was a pleasure to see him in that movie. I also liked Michelle Monaghan, she's so pretty :) The movie is original by the way it is told cause Harry is the narrator of the movie and can stop it at anytime, to make comments. And he interfers each time when we think like « ooooh ok » or « nooo they can't do that », it is like he can catch our thoughts :) The movie is also divided by paragraphs. Well, I had a great time, and pink or red hair rocks, definitively. Il ne faut jurer de rien A French movie, it was a premiere and some of the actors and the director was there so it was a pleasure to see them at the end of the projection. It was entertaining, like a play but on a big screen :) More news to come later.

Yesterday, I talked with someone about the different possibilities of the end of  The Jacket.
Normally, there is only one ( or two it depends ) but you can also
consider it in another way (even if we're not sure of that theory). It
was pretty interesting, and makes me realize even more how much I like
this movie, but indeed, it is not a secret anymore :p

Otherwise, I saw Dr T. and women.
It is a really mad movie, with a lot of clichés and we don't know how
Dr T. can live like that ! And for this point, the movie is well done.
I laughed a lot at the end with the hurricane thing… and was very
surprised when a nino borned, 'cause I found it beautiful. For the first
time, I was really focused on the happiness of that child coming to the
world more that the poor woman who are sufferring to make him born.
