As a big movie fan I have to put in these trailers from two new films I am very excited about: ‘Water for Elephants’, opening 14 April (such a long time to wait!) which looks absolutely magical in the trailer. It’s also a wonderful book, definitely a recommended read.

The second one is ‘The King’s Speech’ which has opened in the US already but we in Germany will have to wait for until February (not fair!). Colin Firth’s work is always superb.

With all the bland movies that are being put out all the time I hope these two will stand out both because of great character development and beautiful cinematography. All it takes to sell me on a movie is a good story beautifully told, but I haven’t seen anything that really convinced me for a good while. I’m always happy for suggestions on films I don’t know about however, so if you have a favourite to share, I’d love to hear about it! There are tons of films that never make it out of the US and us european folks never even hear about sadly.

    Kristina, the Water for Elephants looks great. There was a PBS 6 -hour series on the circus recently. It took you inside the circus and I really loved it although I was always afraid of the clowns! I hope that movie comes to our area. Some movies just never make it here! The other one also sounds good. I agree there have not been many good films out in a long time. My birthday is coming up soon and I hope I can find one I want to see! I saw the Tron movie when it came out 20 years ago and loved it! The reviewers say the new one is way better and has more of a story. I really don’t remember the original one except the concept of the actors where inside the game which I loved to play back then.

      Thanks for the link, I’ll have a look at that series! I didn’t know about the new Tron movie and I haven’t seen the old one either, so maybe I’ll go see it (it comes to Germany in January) 🙂
