The Words // Very cute photo from the upcoming drama The Words, one of the films acquired from this year’s Sundance film festival to be released in theaters September 7th. The film revolves around a writer (Bradley Cooper) who is struggling with writer’s block and makes the decision to pass another man’s work as his own. This proves to affect not only his professional life but also his relationship with his wife (Zoe Saldana). The movie also stars Olivia Wilde, Ben Barnes, Jeremy Irons, and Dennis Quaid. This is definitely one of the films I’m looking forward to later this year. For more photos and the trailer, check out the tumblr site for the film.

… or “How Barcelona continously inspires me”
My travels (and work) took to me Barcelona last week. I absolutely love Spain; it was the first country I ever stepped foot in outside the States so it will always be the place where I started my adventuring abroad. Barcelona is by far one of my favorite cities in the word. This was my 4th time in the city, but I fall in love with it everytime I’m there. I can only hope to be able to visit there for many years to come.
I was in Barcelona for just shy of a week. Such beautiful weather. I wish I could have stayed longer. Everytime I come I get motivated to work on my Spanish (I will be good at it one day!) Flying from Atlanta, it’s about a 9 hour flight so of course to pass the time I watched so movies…
Take Shelter. I always planned to watched this but never got around to it last year. Man, this was such a great psychological thriller; it slowly but surely drew me in and had such a better ending than I anticipated. Is he crazy? Is he psychic? … or is it both? This is one of those movies that is great to discuss. I have my own theories :)
Footloose. Yep, I saw this year’s remake. Believe me, I had no intention of seeing this especially since I think it sometimes borders on sacrilegious to remake truly classic movies. But it came down to 4 hours let on the plane and nothing else that looked remotely interesting. If you remember, I just saw the original the week before so I was in the perfect position to compare the two. Gotta say, I didn’t hate it. Alot of the best scenes were directly lifted from the original so it made me appreciate that one much more. The one modern update I really liked was the new choreography.
Movies I’ve Seen on Previous Flights:
- Tangled. I think the man next to me thought I was crazy for crying at an animated movie
- Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows. Kinda fell asleep on it but did get through the whole thing. I liked the little bits of Guy Richie-style cinematography more than the story
- Black Swan. So good I watched it for the second time on a flight
- The Dilemma. Ehh. I have nothing good to say
