I spent the last week with my "movie-buddy" [ profile] sashatwen at the Fantasy Filmfest in Cologne. I'm going to write some reviews over the weekend in English here on LJ since I mostly wrote about the films we saw (nearly a dozend) in German on FB.
For starters I browsed the net for some memorable short films we saw at the FFF over the years.

Rurouni Kenshin trailer with English subs

I'm watching the latest BBC production of "Richard II". It's an interesting experience. Not only because of fine actors* and pretty costumes&cinematography but mainy because I know absolutly nothing about that king. I never read/saw the play or read anything about him :-) I honestly don't know where the story is going.

*Ben Whishaw, James Purefoy, Patrick Stewart, David Morrissey and Lindsay Duncan

After the coffe machine at our office died a slow death we bought a new one today. Since only half of our small office drinks coffee (the other tea) we only need an ordinary machine. We discussed changing from filter to pads or capsules. I vetod capsules. I've got an esspresso machine for capsules. I only recommend it for people who don't drink coffee every day. It's expensive and you produce lots of plastic waste. (But the taste ist nearly as great as from a machine that freshly grinds and brews coffee.)
We ended up buying a Senseo. I'm not overly impressed by the free coffee samples that came with it. And I remember drinking better coffee from pads at friends or at our booth on the games trade fair every year.
So my dear flist, can you recommend any brand? How about discounter brands like Aldi? (I think we had those at the trade fair.)

A propos "Käffchen?", I forgot to mention that I saw the musical "Kein pardon!" last month in Düsseldorf. It was kinda meh. Impressive concept and designs - but the music didn't ... well it didn't "klick". I can't remember a single tune. And the voices of the male and female lead didn't really work together. Both performed well but the duets sounded off.
I didn't know any of the singers/actors. But I rarely do anyway. I'm primary interested in the play & music and only secondary in the performers. Same goes for theater and movies.
The musical was not very funny either (and it's a comedy!). Only a few laughs (from the whole audience). Not like the movie it is based on (I heard, I havent seen it yet).
I heard that "Dirty Dancing" in Oberhausen will be followed by "Ich war noch niemals in New York". Hhmm :-/ I heard the story is bad and boring. But I like some of Udo Jürgens music (not all, most of it is too cheesy for me but he does have some songs with clever lyrics). I guess my Mum will drag me there, that's her generations kind of music :-) I would have prefered "Rebecca" as Dirty Dancings successor.
I'm still not sure if I should see D. D.. I havn't heard much good about it from friends.

Oh, and I saw "The Avengers" the second time yesterday ^_^ This time dubbed. And like the other Marvel films the dubbing was done quite well. And I still think that the "Asgardian" talking style sound even more stilted and old fashioned in German. Like in "Thor" translating "Give me a horse!" with "Gib mir ein Ross!" (Ross = steed).
We saw the trailers for the Spider-Man remake (left my brother ranting, he hadn't hear of it before). They had lots of 3D swinging off skyscrapers in the trailer. I wonder if they will do much of that in the movie (is it even in 3D?).
Saw the new Batman trailer - still meh. And I saw the long "Prometheus" trailer for the first time (only watched the teaser and it's one of the few films where I'm trying to not be spoiled much) and it looks AWESOME!!!! Even my brother, who doesn't watch horror films, recognized what movie it is linked to :-) Well the designs are quite iconc, aren't they? :-)

racist reactions to the hunger games movie

I expected that kind of reactions when Brannagh casted Idris Elda as Heimdall in "Thor" but this ... well... no words left ...

I don't know why bit I thinks this "Behind the Scenes Pic of the day" from AICN looks really cool

A propos movie, I'm working on my 2011 movie list [ profile] sashatwen :-)

Am sooooo looking forward to Sherlock 2.02 - the hound of Baskerville is my favorite story (I loooove the Hammer version).

I'm giving a home to bacteria and virues again :-( Did somebody stuck a sign "vacancy" on my back? Fortunately it's only a cough yet *knocks on wood*

appropriate icon is appropriate ^_^
Just saw Thor with my brother and his girlfriend and we all enjoyed it very much. But two things were superfluous: the romance (not very believable) and the 3D (just a handful of scenes where it worked very well). The rest was great. I love the design! Very beautiful.
