We Like How It Feels!

Enrique Iglesias, No need of introduction to this artist right? Only way you wouldn’t know about him is if you have been living under a rock. 🙂

Here is his new song “I like how it feels” featuring Pitbull.

I listened to Enrique for the first time when I was around 10 and have been listening  to all of  his songs since then. I won’t say I like each and every song but there are definitely some songs I like to listen to again and again. Here are some of my all time favorites :

Did I forget to add any of his awesome hits?

Movie Week

This week has turned into movie week for me. Saw two new movies at the cinemas, saw some movies on TV that I haven’t seen before and planning to watch some more before this week ends. Thought I would share my view on the new movies that I saw.

The Three Musketeers

An Action/Adventure movie.This movie is for those who like action movies because there are a lot of nicely choreographed fight scenes in it. Even though it is also classified under romance there is nothing in the movie to fit that genre. Everyone must already know the plot, considering there are more than 10 versions of the movie to date and a novel. Here is the outline of the plot; The musketeers have been disbanded – D’Artagnan, hot-headed aspiring musketeer, joins the three heroes Arthos, Porthos and Aramis – They have to deal with a double agent, Milady (Milla Jovovich) and save France from coming under the control of The Cardinal who wants to start a war with England. The movie is quite good but I found it a bit too fast. They tried to fit the whole story in two hours so it’s a little rushed. Even with the above flaw the movie is enjoyable and the acting really good.

My rating : 6/10

 

Real Steel

A really awesome movie!! I didn’t have much hopes for this movie earlier and thought it was just another sci-fi flick. I only went for this because there weren’t any other good movies playing in the cinemas here and at least there is Hugh Jackman 🙂 . Well, Surprise! Surprise!! The movie turned out to be awesome( I’ll have to repeat this word a lot for describing this movie ).The story is told in a very good way, there is humor and most of all there is absolutely awesome action scenes.

Here is short summary from IMBD “Set in the near future, where robot boxing is a top sport, a struggling promoter feels he’s found a champion in a discarded robot. During his hopeful rise to the top, he discovers he has an 11-year-old son who wants to know his father.”

It doesn’t come anywhere near Transformers but it has become my second favorite movie featuring robots. I loved the robot boxing part. I will recommend this movie as “Must Watch” if you are the action movie type. The soundtrack is really nice. Here is the link for the songlist :  http://www.tunefind.com/movie/real-steel

My rating 8/10

Hungry For You – A.M.Harte

I love horror stories, as some of you already know, and almost everything to do with the supernatural. So I didn’t waste a chance to read a novel made for the horror fans. This is the first novel I have read of A.M Harte and I loved her writing style and imagination. The book is a collection of short stories and poetry related to the world of zombies.

This book is not the usual zombie story, where they are shown as the rotting undead with the sole intent of eating flesh; here there is a twist -a theme of romance is added to the stories. Here the zombies are more human (though they are not alive). All the zombie stories I have seen/heard till now have just a single theme, survivors running and killing the undead. This book shows different endings for a zombie apocalypse,other than the usual theme, being told mostly from the point of view of the undead. The book makes references to addiction, abuse and most of all “undying love”. We have seen Daybreakers and I Am Legend and saw what happens when vampires become the dominant species, here is a picture of what happens when zombies take over.

My favorites from the book are –Hungry for You, Dead Man’s Rose and The Perfect Song. I really loved reading this book. After reading long novels with pages and pages of plot it’s a relief to read the stories in this book. They may be short but they are as brilliant as the long ones. I would like to thank the author for offering me a copy from smashwords. You can see more reviews and get your own copy of this novel and other works by the author from Smashwords. If you are a fan of horror stories, zombies in particular, you’ll like reading this book.

 Here is a description of the book from the author’s site :

Love is horrible. It’s ruthless, messy, mind-altering, and raw. It takes no prisoners. It chews you up and spits you out and leaves you for dead. Love is, you could say, very much like a zombie.

In this haunting short story collection, anything is possible—a dying musician turns to tea for inspiration; a police sergeant struggles with a very unusual victim; a young wife is trapped in a house hiding unimaginable evil…

The Silence Of The Lambs – Thomas Harris

The second thriller in the series featuring Hannibal Lecter and in my opinion the best of the four. The movie was an absolute blockbuster so there is no wonder that the book it is based upon is so brilliant. Harris brings us another of his wonderful characters – Clarice Starling. She is a trainee with the FBI and one of the main characters of this novel and the next. The story in this book takes place a couple of years after the first one. Dr.Hannibal Lecter plays a more significant and bigger role in the book.

Jack Crawford, Section Chief of Behavioral Science Section of the FBI, assigns Starling to take a questionnaire prepared to be answered by serial killers to Lecter. Lecter refuses to answer her questions at first but when another inmate Miggs behaves inappropriately with her, he changes his mind and decides to talk with her. He tells her that she should “Look in Raspail’s car for her Valentines”. Lecter will only talk to Starling and says he knows more about the case Crawford is working on.

The case is that of a serial killer named “Buffalo Bill” who abducts women, kills them and then skins his victims before dumping the bodies. Starling follows the clue and finds information which has connection to the present case. When the sixth body turns up Crawford takes Starling along for the investigation. Meanwhile the killer has kidnapped his next victim Christina Martin, daughter of a junior US senator.  Crawford offers a deal to Lecter in exchange for information. Dr. Chilton later reveals that the offer was lie but he makes another deal with Lecter that he would transfer Lecter to another asylum if he is provided with information. Lecter says he would talk only to the Senator. Starling discovers the killers motive and also discovers how he chooses his victims.

I guess I’ll stop here. There is more mind-games from Lecter and a case to be solved, which you’ll have a great time reading. Those who have seen the movie know what is coming but for the sake of those who haven’t, I’m not saying anything more about the plot. Even if you have seen the movie, you’ll enjoy reading this book. 

Songs & Sitcoms #2

Three main shows that I have been watching lately are Vampire Diaries, Teen Wolf and Pretty Little Liars. All of them have good soundtracks. Here are some of the songs that I liked from the shows. I have included songs only from two or three episodes of each show. I haven’t heard the full version of songs from other episodes, so I’ll post about them later.

Enjoy! 🙂

‘Ashes and Wine’ By A Fine Frenzy
From Vampire Diaries s02e03

‘Just a little bit’ By Kids of 88
Teen Wolf season 1(ep1). I haven’t seen the 80’s version of this show but I’m pretty sure this is the better one.

‘Internet Killed the Video Star’ By  The Limousines
Teen Wolf S01.

‘Don’t trust me’ by 3OH!3
Pretty Little Liars Season 1(ep1). Really nice show. I like the setting, the plot and the actors.

‘What I like- Jackie’ By James
Again from Pretty Little Liars season 1. This show has the best song selection I have seen in a show other than  Supernatural.
