Best Film: Continue Reading…

Continuing with the Best Kisses posts, this is one of my fave films. A dark romantic comedy about Julien and Sophie, who become friends as kids and begin playing a dangerous game of Truth or Dare. Marion Cotillard is truly fantastic on this one, and the various versions of La Vie en Rose make it great.

Since I couldn’t find great captures online, I took some time to make my own. If you use them, it’ll be great that you could link back, or leave a message. ^^

The graphics are from the following moments of the film; Julien and Sophie kissing on top of a car, after Sophie dares him to do so, which continues in the alley until the moment ends and she realizes that it might be just a game to him. And the other moment was when they were about to be covered with the cement, and Julien tells her he should’ve dared to love her like crazy… and they stay happy. together. forever.

January 16, 2008 — Leave a comment

Okay, I admit it… I’m not as aware of BAFTA awards or nominations as I am of the Academy Award, or the GG… or lately, the SAG… but today we had a bunch of nominees~~

No Country for Old Men, Atonement, There Will Be Blood, The Lives of Others (last year’s Foreign Film winner at the Oscar), The Bourne Ultimatum, Eastern Promises are some of the nominees for Best Film and Best British Film. While the Coen Bros are a shoo-in in the Best Director category~ lol’ Also, they are among the nominees for Best Adapted Screenplay, while Diablo Cody is in for a Best Original Screenplay. Oh yeah, and Ratatouille is a 99,9% winner in the Best Animated Film category.

In the acting categories, Daniel Day-Lewis, Viggo Mortensen, and Ulrich Mühe (RIP, for The Live of Others) are among the Best Actor category; while Julie Christie, Ellen Page and Marion Cotillard will battle the Best Actress one. In the supporting roles, Javier Bardem and Cate Blanchett are most likely to win!
