my sister's keeper : review

About: Based on the novel "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult. Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate - a life and a role that she has never challenged...until now.

Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable, a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves.

Review: My Sister's Keeper is a movie that I saw and I regret it, not because it is not a great film but because it is very sad. It is about a family with one sick child and the decision they make to have an other baby only to save the life of their sick daughter. There are many issues here, about if it is ethical or not to do such a thing, also about the control over a child's body, when is it too far? I really liked the performances of all the actors, but mostly Kate's and Anna's Fitzgerald, they were touching. A surprise for me was Cameron Diaz, we are not used in roles like that for her, so in this film she reveals one other side of hers successfully. To sum up I recommend this film because of the great performances, the great cast, the great production, but if you are too sensitive better do not watch it because it is very sad.

Series We Loved: Xena: Warrior Princess


Xena: Warrior Princess is an American supernatural fantasy adventure series that aired in syndication from September 4, 1995 until June 18, 2001.[1]The series was created in 1995 by writer-director-producer Robert Tapert under his production tag, Renaissance Pictures with later co-executive producers being John Schulian, R. J. Stewart and Sam Raimi. The series narrative follows Xena (played by Lucy Lawless), a warrior in a quest to seek redemption for her past sins as a ruthless warlord by using her formidable fighting skills to help people. Xena is accompanied by Gabrielle (played byRenee O'Connor), who during the series changes from a simple farm girl into an amazon warrior and Xena's greatest ally; her initial naïveté helps to balance Xena and assists her in recognizing and pursuing the "greater good".

The show is a spin-off of the television series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys;[2] in fact, the saga began with three episodes in Hercules where Xena was a recurring character originally scheduled to die in her third appearance. Aware that the character of Xena had been very successful among the public, the producers of the series decided to create a spin-off series based on her adventures. Xena was a successful show which has aired in more than 108 countries around the world since 1998, ranked #10 on TV Guide's Top 30 Cult TV Shows of All Time[3] and #100 on Bravo's 100 Greatest TV Characters.[4] Xena's success has led to hundreds of tie-in products, including, comics, books, video games and conventions, realized annually since1998 in Pasadena, California and London.[5]

The series has received attention in fandom (including fan films), parody, and academia, and has influenced the direction of other television series.[6

Why We Loved It: Why? Because the show is so unrealistic and fake that it rurns to awesome! Xena combines the awesomness of Hercules with a smoking hot protagonist and you have a hit series. Sort of. Now the reason we miss this movie is the extreme unrealism of everything in the series. From the way you see Greece, to Mythology, to the combat scenes to the age. I mean how old did Xena get? Seriously! Not to mention the fact that she traveled from Greece, to China, to Arabia, to Skandinavia, even to America I think. WHat we also miss is the famous battle cry Xena did when she charged in combat (usually doing a roll while she jumps in the middle of 4-5 people). We also loved the fact that Xena was more comic than Hercules. They knew they had crossed the line and were unrealistic beyond relief and they made a great laugh of it. Great show, still watch it when I find it. Miss the hot protagonist (which i dont know the name) and the battle scenes. Funny show, interesting show.

Modern Family, Review

This mockumentary explores the many different types of a modern family through the stories of a gay couple, a straight couple, and a multi-ethnic couple.
Modern Family employs an ensemble cast. The show revolves around three families that are interrelated through Jay Pritchett and his children, Claire Dunphy and Mitchell Pritchett. Jay Pritchett (Ed O'Neill), the patriarch, is currently in a May–December marriageSofía Vergara), a passionate[24] mother, who with help from Jay raise her son, Manny (Rico Rodriguez II). Claire (Julie Bowen) is a homemaker mom married to Phil (Ty Burrell) a real estate agent and self-professed cool dad; they have three children: Haley, the stereotypical teenager,[25] Alex, the smart middle child[26] and Luke, the offbeat only son.[27] Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and his partner Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) have adopted a Vietnamese baby, Lily. with Gloria (

Probably the last time i laughed so much with a show was at F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Modern Family, is just awesome. It's funny and clever and the 22 mins of each episode aren't just enough! Each one of the actors have became one with their characters and the result is exceptional! It's not weird that the series have got some Emmys^^ I learned about the show from the Emmy's. I know, i also made Athanasia obsessed with it. She just finished watching, and today was like "Yiota, in the week you will come at my house and do a Modern Family day!" and i was like" we need to wait for Johnny too!".."No way!" she said.."We are watching again when he comes back".  Hahaha...Modern Family is a new obsession of mine. Start the series and there is no way to stop watching!

Season 2 is airing now.

Megamind, Review

When super villain Megamind defeats his archrival Metro Man, the world should be his oyster. But instead, Megamind falls into total despair. It turns out that life without a rival is life without a point for him. So he creates a new superhero rival. Unfortunately, the new hero wants to be a super villain too. Who can we turn to? Who has what it takes to stand up to this menace? Who will defend the innocent? Megamind! That's who.

What i liked about Megamind was the idea of the story. Bad guy win the good guy at the start of the story and then what? It was clever they took the story like that, and gave us the chance to follow the bad guy. Even though, they could have done much better job with it, it was still enjoyable! And of course funny! I don't know what's up with the latest animation movies lately, but they are all so fun to watch ^^

+ Will Ferell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey and Jonah Hill for the voices? That's awesome enough to watch the movie! Especially for Brad Pitt...i don't remember voicing a character before and he did great job in this one.

+Last thing, was the music. Not only it's by Hans Zimmer but it also features Elvis, AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne, Guns n Roses and many others. It was just great! The songs totally fit with it.

Here some Highway to Hell for you:

an awesome entrance with some Guns 'n Roses *SPOILER! LAST PARTS OF THE MOVIE*:

and the trailer:

Persepolis 1,2 : Review

About: Wise, funny, and heartbreaking memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. In powerful black-and-white comic strip images, Satrapi tells the story of her life in Tehran from ages six to fourteen, years that saw the overthrow of the Shah's regime, the triumph of the Islamic Revolution, and the devastating effects of war with Iraq. The intelligent and outspoken only child of committed Marxists and the great-granddaughter of one of Iran's last emperors, Marjane bears witness to a childhood uniquely entwined with the history of her country.

Review: Persepolis describes daily life in Iran; through Marjane's experiences we learn about the history of not only Iran, but also her family's. This was the first memoir-in-comic-strips that I have read and I was so exited. I just couldn't stop reading, actually it didn't take me a long time to finish it but I devoured every single line of it. Actually you get to see the world from the eyes of a child but without feeling like you are reading a children book.

About: In 1984, Marjane flees fundamentalism and the war with Iraq to begin a new life in Vienna. Once there, she faces the trials of adolescence far from her friends and family, and while she soon carves out a place for herself among a group of fellow outsiders, she continues to struggle for a sense of belonging.

Review: The second book is more exiting for me, actually to be honest is a little different. Marjane is older now and she has some pretty shocking experiences. The struggle of growing up and the mixed feelings she has about her life, her country are very strong in this book.

To sum up both books are great and I totally recommend them. To be honest if you try the first I im pretty sure you will buy the second too! You will read a great story, you will learn and feel things that you may have not known and you will enjoy the black-and-white comic strip images.

Author Biography:
Marjane Satrapi was born in 1969 in Rasht, Iran. She grew up in Tehran, where she studied at the Lycée Français before leaving for Vienna and then going to Strasbourg to study illustration. She currently lives in Paris, where she is at work on the sequel to Persepolis and where her illustrations appear regularly in newspapers and magazines. She is also the author of several children’s books.

What's New Wednesday #7

What's New Wednesday is hosted by My Love Affair With Books and i totally love it since i can put in all the interesting news we found about each week!

In front of every little paragraph will be a tag ( Music,Movie, Book,etc) so in case you are not interested in something you can just skip it. At the end, are our week's finds.

[Blog] Sara is Reading What? is interviewing the author Heather Wardell who wrote: Go Small or Go Home, and Seven Exes are Eight too many. So go pay her a visit!

[Books] Some lovely new covers that released this week

[Book] The first full chapter of City of Fallen Angels is available at Mortal Instrument site.

[Author] L.J.Smith, author of Vampire Diaries was fired. That's probably old new, but they surprised since i didn't know how an author could be fired from their work. As i learn, Smith was just writing the idea the publications gave her and it wasn't her own. They actually hired her to write the book. I didn't know how this could happen. Learn more about L.J.Smith fired from Vampire Diaries. Smith, worked on the series for 20 years and someone else will continue now. This is just plain weird....

[Music] Paramore performed a new song live. I don't know if it's a cover or theirs but i like it. View In The Mourning. 

[Music] Britney has a new music video out ( Hold It Against Me), and i don't like it either. Seems really fake.

[Movie] I have no idea why they rebooting all movies again but anyway. Tomb Raider reboot sees as Lara the actress Olivia Wilde. Personally i like Wilde much more, as appearance and as an actor than Angelina Jolie. We will see though...

[Movie] Bildo and his gang of 13 dwarves look so great together! Too bad Gandalf is not in the photo too. Hobbit is on the movie guys!

[TV] Some series are going on hiatus after this and next week. The hiatus will last 2 weeks for most of them. I know for sure that Vampire Diaries will not air next week and Glee got a 2 weeks break too. So far, everything else is on the move.

Click on the covers for their summaries at goodreads.

We Listen: Queens Of The Stone Age: "Lullabies To Paralyze"

Lullabies to Paralyze is the fourth studio album by hard rock band Queens of the Stone Age and was released on March 21, 2005.[1] Debuting at number 5 on the Billboard chart,[2] the album sold 97,000 copies in America during its first week of release,[2] eventually topping over 342,000 copies as of March, 2007 according to Nielsen Soundscan.[3] The album has been certified gold in the UK, where it has sold over 100,000 units. It is also the band's first album to be released after Nick Oliveri was fired from the band. Josh Homme is the only member from the previous album, Songs For The Deaf, to play on this album, not counting Mark Lanegan.

Brace yourself people because this album takes you down a trip to a fairytale. But its not the normal kind of fairytale. This album (especially if you have bought it and have the artwork) is a journey down a more, paranoid and dark fairytale. The album is a memento to demention, paranoia, sexism and generally things we all feel but never talk about out loud. This is a memento to a fairytale, where the wolf knifes his pack and then cries above their corpses, where the little red riding hood poisons her grandma and runs away with the wolf, where the good witch that helps the princess is found by the mob and burned to ashes. This is to you my fellow people. Listen to the album and come in touch with your little paranoid voice in your head.
What I Like: Almost everything, the album has many strange melodies and rhythms, very deep lyrics, that can mean different things to people (Me and my brother have a different approach on what a song means) and without a doubt this is one of my favorite albums though I am not a fan of Queens Of The Stone Age, meaning that aside from this song and a few others I havent listened to them much
What I Dont Like: The fact that this album has a taste that is not for all times. I only listen to it when im feeling really good with myself, excited and especially when I am feeling dark and/or dirty. You know what I mean, the kind of dirty when you are getting dressed to go out and you have the mentality "I am so god damn hot and I know it". Dont laugh, you all know what I mean and we all have those moments. Yes even you, yes you over there, yes. YOU!

1. This Lullaby. Its the intro, not much to say about this
2. Medication. This is just plain awesomeness
3. Everybody Knows That You Are Insane: Open up the arwork ladies and gentlemen the fairytale begins.
4. Tangled Up In Plaid: Here I will just quote my favorite lyric: "Come lets play along, let each other lose, a win would cause an alarm dont matter to me, dont matter to you. "
5. Burn The WItch: This is the song in which me and my brother dissagrees, I believe it just describes the sadistic nature of the mob, my brother thinks it talks about lies. Maybe the truth is in between
6. In My Head: This is one of the normal songs in the album, it has a certain something that sticks with you. "Its the cruelest joke to plaayyyy..."
7. Little Sister: This is the first song of Queens I listened to and it is a dear song to me. I just love it
8. I Never Came: A very good song. I love the way it begins slowly and builds up in the end.
9. Someone's In The Wolf: This is one of the creepies stongs you will ever listen to. EVER! (Yes I do love it, how did you know?)
10.The Blood Is Love:This song reminds me of one of those creepy creepy carnivals, you know with the creepy-demon clowns and the strange people in the freak show. You know, like those creepy carnivals that happen only at night and stuff?
11.Skin On Skin: This is probably the most sexist song I have ever listened to. Just by listening to it i feel like i just violated someone. I know I might be overreacting, but you get the picture
12.Broken Box: Oh, me love this song! It is just badass!
13."You Got A Killer Scene There Man...": Quote "I just curse the sun so I can howl at the moon..."
14.Long Slow Goodbye (Hidden Track:Like A Drug): And here is the end of our fairytale folks. I hope you enjoyed the ride, I know I did!. A great finish to a great album. (Hidden Track: I dont really like it, i never listen to it)

Thank you people for joining me in our little horror train full of "Lullabies To Paralyze" I hope you enjoyed the ride, had some fun as well as some sadistic, dirty thoughts while listening to it. If you were not in the mood for creepy stuff then I hope you enjoyed the album as much as I do. And remember to keep that little paranoid you in a good shape. Talk to him often, you never know, he might be a nice guy ;)

Series We Loved: Hercules

In this quasi-mythological costume series, Hercules (in Greek Herakles), the noble bastard son of Zeus, hence hated to death by his step-mother Hera, doesn't live as an Olympian after accomplishing his Works and the Argonauts' journey, as classical myth has it, but relinquishes immortality and continues to fight both human and supernatural evil on earth, as a wanderer in and beyond Greece, usually accompanied by his human side-kick Iolaus and sometimes by dodgy Salmoneus. Countless are the challenges, either especially set up by Hera or just on his way, but he always triumphs against all odds, delivers otherwise often hopeless mortals and moves on to new adventures.

Why we loved it?
I know what you will where whining about a book that messed up Greek Mythology and you liked that? There is a big difference between them. Hercules is just so EPIC that you can't be mad with it. It's badass, awesome, funny and messes with the greek mythology with style. Plus, the main actor is Kevin hands down people! Anyway. Hercules is another series that i grew up with (yeah, i watched TV a lot...shhhh now) and of course never missed an episode. My fav character was Iolaus (who also guest starred at Legend of the Seeker before they stopped it -.- ) who as in every good story, was the funny-stupid character best friend of the hero, etc. Even now, i know i will enjoy each one of the episodes and make my day!

In case you are wondering...yeah i was watching Xena too and yeah she is will have a post too soon!

The Valkyries : Review

About: A Magical Tale About Forgiving Our Past and Believing in Our Future. The enchanting, true story of The Valkyries begins in Rio de Janeiro when author Paulo Coelho gives his mysterious master J., the only manuscript for his book The Alchemist. Haunted by a devastating curse, Coelho confesses to J., "I've seen my dreams fall apart just when I seemed about to achieve them." In response, J. gives Coelho a daunting task: He must find and speak with his guardian angel. "The curse can be broken," he replies, "if you complete the task."

Rising to the challenge, Paulo and his wife, Cristina, drop everything, pack their bags, and take off on a forty day adventure into the starkly beautiful and sometimes dangerous Mojave Desert 執here they encounter more than they bargained for. A masterful blend of the exotic locales, dramatic adventure, and magical storytelling, for which Coelho's fictional works are renowned, this true–life account is at once a modern–day adventure and a metaphysical odyssey.

Review: The Valkyries is a book I really wanted to read when I heard it published at Greek, but after I read it I realized that it had been published some years ago in English and I was really disappointed because I thought that it was the new book of Paulo Coelho.. Anyway about the book now.. I really liked it, I always like Coelho's books, i've read all of them (the ones at Greek at least). I have to admit that the last ones were a little bit too much for me, but it's Coelho I can not stop reading his books! Valkyries is a book about a trip he does with his wife and his quest to see his angel, if you have read his other books you easily understand this book, but if it is your first you will find many things odd because there is no explanation. To sum up I really enjoyed the book, it was a fast read, I totally recommend it.

Mean Girls 2 & Taken, Reviews

“I don’t know you who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you’re looking for a ransom, I can tell you, I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills acquired over a very long career in the shadows, skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that will be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you. And I will kill you.”

With these chilling words to a member of a band of kidnappers, former government operative Bryan Mills begins the longest 96-hours of his life – and the hunt for the fearsome organization that has taken his daughter Kim.

I will admit i saw the movie cause of Liam Neeson. I kinda love this guy!

I think it was a really good mystery-action movie. With no actions that would think "you can't do that" (ex. Die Hard).  Liam Neeson, is just wow at his role. He is badass but not a jerk or anyone out of their minds. He would do everything for his daughter, no matter how far he should go. And while the story is not exceptional, he makes the movie to deserve a watch. Other actors weren't much in it, except his ex and his daughter who they actually have small parts.
An enjoyable watch to spent your night.

Johanna "Jo" Mitchell is a 17-year-old tomboy, who lives with her father, who works as a race car driver for NASCAR...

Overall the movie is poor quality. Certainly don't expect the awesomeness of the first movie.

It had some funny parts and some better parts than the first like: Jo is acting to the whole "plastics" situation better and is far more clever than Lohan was, she cares about her friends more, and as a character has much more depth. Also, she is not getting into the clique and start planning how destroy the plastics. She has some really good reasons to do so. The headmaster is epic again! Love the guy!
What i didn't like? The acting was pretty much terrible. Especially the plastics. I don't know who picked them or dressed them but it was really bad. They made the film annoying. And in this one, they are so mean that i missed the old plastics.

Silver Phoenix, Review

No one wanted Ai Ling. And deep down she is relieved—despite the dishonor she has brought upon her family—to be unbetrothed and free, not some stranger's subservient bride banished to the inner quarters.

But now, something is after her. Something terrifying—a force she cannot comprehend. And as pieces of the puzzle start to fit together, Ai Ling begins to understand that her journey to the Palace of Fragrant Dreams isn't only a quest to find her beloved father but a venture with stakes larger than she could have imagined.

Bravery, intelligence, the will to fight and fight hard . . . she will need all of these things. Just as she will need the new and mysterious power growing within her. She will also need help.

It is Chen Yong who finds her partly submerged and barely breathing at the edge of a deep lake. There is something of unspeakable evil trying to drag her under. On a quest of his own, Chen Yong offers that help . . . and perhaps more.

Okay...give my some time to do a recap of the book since there is some time i've read it....*yiota thinks*....

I would describe Silver Phoenix as one of those classic japanese stories. I don't know how many of you've watch movies like Howl's Moving Castle, with weird creatures which doesn't really make sense, but the book is exactly like that but not so childish. The writing was captivating, exotic and is exactly like watching an anime movie.
Good things: Great and strong plot. Without turning around a romance, with depth and well created characters. Amazing descriptions and lovable characters. Strong and clever villain with surprising actions on how to destroy our heroes. The romance wasn't the main thing of the story, and it was presented a little every time in a way it made you like it even more.
Bad things: All those weird monsters, with many heads and other weird stuff were too unreal. I always find them as a bad idea in those Japanese stories. Also, the romance didn't turn out as i wanted and i got mad :P

Overall i really liked the book and i finished it in one night. I will admit, i've read it cause of its cover but I got really into it, even it wasn't such an "wow". Now, i can't wait for the next one.

You Killed Wesley Payne : Review

About: You Killed Wesley Payne” is a truly original and darkly hilarious update of classic pulp-noir, in which hard-boiled seventeen year-old Dalton Rev transfers to the mean hallways of Salt River High to take on the toughest case of his life. The question isn't whether Dalton's going to get paid. He always gets paid. Or whether he's gonna get the girl. He always (sometimes) gets the girl. The real question is whether Dalton Rev can outwit crooked cops and killer cliques in time to solve the mystery of "The Body" before it solves him.

Review:You Killed Wesley Payne” is a book from Sean Beaudoin.

He's come to do a job.
A job that involves a body.
A body wrapped in duct tape found hanging from the goal posts at the end of the football field.

Things I liked: I really like mystery, detective novels, so when I read the book I liked the story a lot. It is an interesting book about a 17 year old boy who tries to solve a mystery, the death of a boy. The story is well written and has a lot of suspense. Finally the ending is unexpected and I enjoyed a lot the last chapters.

Things I did not like: Once again I did not like the main character of the book, Dalton Rev. He is a very “tough” guy, he is not afraid of anything or anyone and that was fake. He also did an unspeakable thing; he turned down a Harvard scholarship! Who does that? Also I did not like the writing style, it was too aggressive for me, but I think that’s because of Dalton, it is how he describes everything.

To sum up it is a good book, but I am not head over heels about it.

Little Fockers, Review

It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get in with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack. After the cash-strapped dad takes a job moonlighting for a drug company, however, Jack's suspicions about his favorite male nurse come roaring back. When Greg and Pam's entire clan-including Pam's lovelorn ex, Kevin-descends for the twins' birthday party, Greg must prove to the skeptical Jack that he's fully capable as the man of the house. But, with all the misunderstandings, spying and covert missions, will Greg pass Jack's final test and become the family's next patriarch... will the circle of trust be broken for good?

I can't believe it's 10 years since the first movie! DeNiro and Stiller are one amazing duo, and even after so many years can bring the fun back!

The movie definitely wasn't like the other two (i believe it was missing something) but it still was much fun. I liked that after so much, DeNiro still have his doubts. It's so amazing! I guess it will never stop for him XD
I was also happy that the kids had bigger parts in the movie, and i totally loved the little girl who was a little DeNiro. It was kinda hilarious to watch a little girl acting like that and spying and stuff.

Of course, Owen Wilson rocked his part for another time. Love love love! How amazing that actor is?!
Jesicca Alba also starts and i didn't know that, so i was gasping at the cinema screen at her first scene. I don't like how skinny she is.
Addition to all the fun, are also the Fockers parents who are back as well!

It's really great to see a cast, working that well together and make a movie with not much interest (i said it was missing something, it wasn't exceptional like the others) be that funny!

I certainly enjoyed it. And i believe everyone (at least the one who follows the series) must watch the movie.
