A Conversation Between JK Rowling and Daniel Radcliffe (2011)

Last night, I found this video completely by chance. I thought it was so interesting even if it’s from three years ago. I love the Harry Potter books and I’m looking forward to reading anything Rowling would write on this topic. It was fun to follow the 2014 Quidditch World Cup on Pottermore and I really think Rowling is such a touching person as I watched her in Who do you think you are ?, discovering her family’s past in France. I need to reread the books as I miss her characters so much.

** SPOILERS** If you haven’t read the books or seen the movies yet and want to, do NOT watch that video.

Begin Again (2013)

Begin Again Poster

Gretta and her long-time boyfriend Dave are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan, a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.

Comedy, starring Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, James Corden, Hailee Steinfeld, Mos Def, Catherine Keener and Adam Levine.

Eight years after his much acclaimed Once, John Carney gives us a new story in which the characters are united by their love of music in a beautiful New York City background. Since the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, I follow Keira Knightley’s career and she is able to amaze me each time, I remember her so moving in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World two years ago and now she has proved she can sing. All I can say is when I watched this movie, I forgot I was in a theatre as I was singing along and dancing in my chair, completely carried away by that charming story in which the main actors portrayed endearing characters. This is my favourite movie this year so far, since Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Those two songs take a great part in the soundtrack as we get different versions throughout the movie. I love them both.

 

 

Jaguar F-Type Coupé Adverts

Here is Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper’s cut of “Rendezvous” with an ensemble cast of British Villains including Sir Ben Kingsley, Mark Strong, and Tom Hiddleston.

I had the pleasure to discover the score performed by the London Symphony and composed by Oscar-nominated composer Alexandre Desplat. Desplat is my favourite composer and I used to watch movies only because he composed the score and never regretted as they were excellent ones – “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, “Lust, Caution” directed by Ang Lee …

Three months ago, Tom Hiddlestom starred alone in the new ad titled “The Art of Villainy” .

I’ve been aware of these ads because the latest has been banned for encouraging dangerous driving .

I have to confess that when I was a little girl, I loved playing with marbles and little cars as much as with dolls. I fell in love with the XJS when I first saw it in “The New Avengers” series with Patrick Macnee and Joanna Lumley  …  As an adult I have a collection of Jaguar die-cast models by Corgi and Minichamps.

I understand the claims made by the Advertising Standards Authority … so this ad disappeared from the UK Jaguar YouTube channel. I just wanted to share it to show that the work of Tom Hiddleston, the director and all the people who participated in it was appreciated.
