Casa Groazei desprinsă dintr-un film de-al lui Tim Burton

Text de Raluca Antuca

Pentru că se apropie Halloween-ul, vă prezint o casă desprinsă parcă dintr-un film de-al lui Tim Burton. Pânze de păianjen, ochi gigantici care se holbează la trecători și dinți ascuțiți la intrarea în casă… toate acestea realizate manual de fotografa Christine McConnel.

Casa a aparținut părinților ei și datează din anii 1900. Christine și-a făcut un obicei din a decora casa, fie de Halloween, fie de Crăciun. Acum doi ani, a abordat tematica filmului Nightmare Before Christmas, iar rezultatul a fascinat internauții dornici să vadă lucruri senzaționale.

Această casă a groazei a necesitat patru zile de muncă, iar costul s-a ridicat la 250 de dolari, cele mai scumpe fiind luminile verzi care strălucesc noaptea. Lui Christine îi place tare mult stilul anilor ’50, dar iubește acest spirit al comediei care a ieșit la iveală în 1980. Munca ei este un fel de combinație între lucruri drăguțe, dar înfricoșătoare în același timp.

oscar-1-300x300ce-au zis nominalizatii la Oscar

ce-au zis nominalizatii la Oscar

cel mai mult la oscaruri (nominalizari si ceremonie) imi plac reactiile celor implicati. pentru ca noi ne imaginam ca actorii, regizorii, producatorii sunt niste supra oameni si sunt neclintiti in succesul sau ratarile lor.

ei bine, si ei se imbraca la fel cu pantalonii – cite un crac pe rind – , iar reactiile lor fac toti banii.
sigur cau unii nu vor sa coboare garda jos in faza nominalizarilor si dau un comunicat politicos, dar o sa-i vedem la ceremonie in cele citeva secunde inaintea deschiderii plicului- sub presiunea emotiilor o sa fie cu sufletul la vedere.

ceremonia este pe 24 februarie.

iata reactiile pe care le-am gasit:)

Hugh Jackman, lead actor in ‘Les Miserables’

“I hadn’t planned to listen live to the announcements, but when I got into the car this morning to go to work, the driver had the nominations streaming as they were being broadcast. To be honest, it’s very exciting but all a bit surreal, and it hasn’t fully sunk in yet. This is a brilliant awards year that has been defined by an eclectic list of stories that have been told by incredibly talented and courageous filmmakers, and it’s an honor to be mentioned in the same sentence as the other nominees in the best actor category. Having hosted the show, I have seen so many different sides of the Oscars, but to be an actual nominee is something I never would have dreamed possible.”

Denzel Washington, lead actor in ‘Flight’

“‘Flight’ was one of the most challenging roles I’ve ever had in my career, and it was an honor to be directed by Robert Zemeckis. It’s always nice to be asked back to the show, and it will be fun to share the evening with our nominated screenwriter John Gatins.”

Alan Arkin, supporting actor in ‘Argo’

“I am, of course, very excited about the nomination this morning. Ben Affleck is an amazing director, and I am so happy that ‘Argo’ was recognized in seven categories!”

Jacki Weaver, supporting actress in ‘Silver Linings Playbook’

“I arrived here from Australia just yesterday and this was the last thing I expected. I turned on TV this morning – I couldn’t sleep from being jet-lagged – and couldn’t believe it and said something very unprintable to myself! I think the film is very identifiable even if you don’t have those exact problems. We know people, we are related people as neighbors who have them. There are issues we can all identify with — broken hearts, mental illness, sports as religion. I was recently interviewed by a British journalist, and he wanted to talk about the mental illness in the movie and. I wondered to him, ‘This film is very American. Do you think Brits and Australians are going to get it?’ He said, ‘Oh my God, yes. The themes are universal.’ I’m so proud of this movie.”

 Emmanuelle Riva -leading actress in Amour

“I am truly happy, touched, and honored to receive, today in New York, a nomination for the role of Anne in Amour by Michael Haneke. For me, it is an immense gift, at this stage of my life, to be chosen by my sisters and brothers, for what I do as an actress. I never thought, while working throughout the years in Europe and France, that one day, i would cross the Atlantic Ocean, come to the United States, and be nominated. It is quite surreal for me. Shooting Amour with Michael Haneke was a complete joy for me, as I felt an absolute trust in him and we were in complete synch. Michael is the very music of his own film.” –

Best Supporting Actress, Helen Hunt

“I was deeply deeply asleep when the news came in this morning and the dog was the first one to get celebratory love from me and my boyfriend! I’m really really happy and feel this is a good sign that people like the spirit this character embodies. This film is definitely counter-programming to a lot of the pain and harshness in the world. It’s too bad that John [Hawkes] wasn’t recognized, but that doesn’t take away from the brilliance of his performance one bit.”

Best Supporting Actor, Robert De Niro

“I am very pleased that the Academy has chosen to honor the many individuals who were a part of ‘Silver Linings Playbook.'” –

Best Actress, Naomi Watts

“This was a complete surprise. For the other announcements this season I was in NYC, no problem… I had a proper full night of sleep. There’s something about this one, being in L.A., that creates a lot of angst! I had interruptions of sleep all night because of the kids, as if I wasn’t restless enough, and each time I woke up I kept thinking, “It’s not going to happen.’ BAFTA didn’t give us love this week, and I thought they were making the Oscar announcements at 5 a.m. so at ten after, I thought, ‘They would have called by now right?’ But my publicist texted and said, ‘They haven’t made the announcements yet!’ I was super lucky too that my name was mentioned first. Usually I’m at the end of lists. Overall, it’s very thrilling, especially in a year with so many incredible performances.”

Best Supporting Actress, Anne Hathaway
“It’s a wonderful morning. I’m still jet-lagged on Europe time because I spent the holidays there, so I’ve been up for a few hours already unsuccessfully trying to fall back asleep. It’s such an honor to be a part of a piece of work that has spread so much love throughout the world. I worked with a fearless cast and was so inspired by them every day. I sent Hugh [Jackman] an email. It’s also a bittersweet morning for all of us because [Tom Hooper]’s our captain, and there’s no way I’m on the phone with you right now without his influence in my life. He’s really happy for us, which is a great feeling.” —

Best Actress, Jennifer Lawrence
“I thought I would wake up, but I didn’t. My parents spent the night at my house, and they came in and kissed me on the forehead and told me about all the nominations for Silver Linings.”

Tim Burton – Best Animated Feature, ‘Frankenweenie’
“Frankenweenie is a very personal film for me. The idea of telling a feature length version was in the back of my mind for many years. Stop Motion was the perfect medium for this project, and one I’ve always loved for its expressiveness and dimensionality. I’ve worked with so many incredible artists: animators, cast members, set builders, and puppet makers, all who have helped bring this film to life one frame at a time. I’m so honored that the Academy has recognized this film as one of its nominees.”

Best Director, Michael Haneke
“I am very happy and gratified by the Oscar nominations that “Amour” has received today, and that the voting members of the Academy have taken the film so strongly to their hearts. It is fulfilling to discover that a film has found the audience and critical acclaim that “Amour” has garnered. I have been very fortunate on both those fronts, but it is especially rewarding to discover that a film has found favor among one’s industry peers who know, in particular, the effort that goes into getting a film – any film – made. I am also especially happy for all the people who made “Amour” with me. It is a joyous occasion for us all. Many thanks.” –

Best Director, Ang Lee

“I am deeply honored and frankly a little overwhelmed by all of the nominations that ‘Life of Pi’ has received this morning. So many talented people gave everything they had to this film, both in front of and behind the camera, and to see all of them receive this kind of recognition is something I am incredibly grateful for.”

Best Director, David O. Russell
“I’m beyond grateful, since I didn’t know what to expect. I’m especially over the moon for my actors. The fact that Bob (Robert De Niro) and Jacki Weaver were nominated is amazing.”

Best Cinematography, -Seamus McGarvey for “Anna Karenina”

“The director of the film I’m currently working on just texted me. We had a $100 bet that I wouldn’t get nominated, but he texted me that he’s $100 richer! I’m over the moon!”

bigfishpentru fiecare om am un film

pentru fiecare om am un film

astazi mi-am dat seama ca pentru fiecare om pe care-l cunosc am, undeva intr-un sertaras din minte, un film cu care-l asociez…

nu-l mai vazusem de multa vreme pe Dobro (desi il ascult dimineata macar o ora si stiu ce face, plus ca mai vorbim din cind in cind), dar in pauza de la jurizarea Pepsi Refresh Your World in timp ce ne povestea despre experientele lui in studierea psihologiei, mi-am amintit ca pentru mine el e filmul lui Tim Burton, Big Fish.

acum 8 ani, pe cind el era la Pro Fm si eu la Europa FM nu-mi placea deloc. mi se parea ca e arogant si mistocar-rau. dupa care, mi-a povestit la o conversatie banala la un eveniment ca i-a placut (ba chiar a fost impresionat) de filmul asta.
si de atunci, mi-e drag Dobro.

asociati oamenii cu filme?

daca vreti va mai spun oameni vs filme:)

Helena-Bonham-Carter-933099all supporting wifes

all supporting wifes

Carmen Gheorghitza aka traiesc frumos mi- a vorbit despre speech-ul Helenei Bonham Carter de la premiile Bafta.

nu vazusem ceremonia, asa ca am primit de la Carmen asta seara inregistrarea speech-ului.

ador pasajul “to all supporting wifes” – Helena a fost si este muza lui Tim Burton si o sotie care stie sa creeze coconul protector in jurul barbatului ei, lasindu-l insa sa miste in lumina libertatii.

Helena Bonham Carter a luat Bafta pentru rolul din King’s Speech pentru care e nominalizata si la Oscar.


cannes 2010 – aurora lui cristi puiu

astazi dimineata la cannes jurnalistii au vazut filmul lui cristi puiu, aurora.

n-am gasit inca reactii, dar pare ca fotografii au tinut minte filmul, pentru ca i-au surprins la o vizionare de seara pe o parte din membrii echipei.

later edit:
pe site-ul evz am gasit cel mai cretin text posibil despre aceasta proiectie. habar n-am cine esti draga florentina ciuverca dar sper sa te dea afara repede, ca treaba cu jurnalismul n-ai.

un exemplu ilustrator despre cum domnisoara asta n-a fost la prima lectie despre cum sa scrii un text. jurnalistii pe care i-a intervievat ea n-au nume, tara, publicatii la care scriu. oare exista?

Este un foarte bun film românesc, îţi dă, aşa, o senzaţie de film alb-negru în slow motion. După succesul filmului «Poliţist, adjectiv» de anul trecut, pe acesta l-am putea numi «Criminal, substantiv»”, crede primul respondent.
“Cred că este foarte bun, a fost un pic cam lung, însă încă de la început suntem cuceriţi de personaje, nu cunoaştem prea mult despre ele, este vorba de o punere în scenă care ne face să stăm cu sufletul la gură, iar finalul este extraordinar”, opinează un alt jurnalist.

ce cauti domnisoara in presa???? si te mai si platesc astia sa mergi la cannes…. brrrrr


pe site-ul festivalului (de unde am si luat fotografia cu echipa de la aurora) e o sectiune zilnica in care sunt mentionate vedetele care sunt in cannes in ziua respectiva.
