Movie of the Week: Sunshine on Leith

Sunshine on Leith is a 2013 British musical film directed by Dexter Fletcher, an adaptation of the stage musical of the same name, a jukebox musical featuring songs by The Proclaimers.


It’s a gorgeous, touching movie, that talks about love, commitment, family and sacrifice. I loved it! It has the bonus of the gorgeous Scottish accent, beautiful sceneries and the amazing songs by The Proclaimers. From I’m on My Way, to Over and Done With, and finally I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles), the music is amazing and says more than any dialog could!

“But you’ve never drunk fresh blood. Have you?”

Simon raised his own eyebrows in response.

“Well, aside from mine, of course,” Jace said. “And I’m sure my blood is fantastic.”

People in high places: THIS MOVIE NEEDS TO HAPPEN, LIKE NOW! Come on, Deadpool is funny as hell and we need him in the MARVEL family, so FOX, get moving and do this movie already!!! (please…..)

City of Glass: fav quote #2

Jace knew… he knew something was up with Sebastian…

“Do you?” Sebastian asked with interest.

“Not really,” Jace said with a smile so disarming Simon knew he was lying. “My Romanian is pretty much limited to useful phrases like, ‘Are these snakes poisonous?’ and ‘But you look much too young to be a police officer.”

Movie of the Week: The Fault in Our Stars

After weeks I finally found the time to go to the movies and watch The Fault in Our Stars. I must say, that although the book is sitting in my nightstand, a present from a friend of mine for my birthday, I still haven’t even opened it (truth is, dramas depress me!).


I walked in the movie knowing the general premise: it’s a book about teenagers with cancer, they fall in love and Gus dies! After weeks of raving reviews, friends telling me that I should take a whole bunch of paper tissues, I have to admit that I was expecting a pretty spectacular movie, with a pretty spectacular story.

So, there I was. I bought a package of tissue paper, a bucket of popcorn and there I went. Well, I liked it, but I didn’t “oh, it’s the best movie ever” kind of liked it. It’s beautiful, moving and sad… but predictable! Sure, I shed a few tears, but come on… it’s me… I cry watching any kind of movie… I cried harder on some scenes of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes today as well… worst for me was the eulogy scene, where Augustus makes Hazel and Isaac do their eulogies before he dies. But from the start I knew this movie wasn’t about how they deal with their diseases… it was always about who is left behind!

Still, worth watching, maybe I’ll like the book slightly more…
