where the wild things are

Enquanto espero pela estreia do “Where the wild things are“, resolvi procurar uma curta de animação de 1973 acerca do mesmo livro. Acabei por encontrar algumas coisas engraçadas.

1973 version

While waiting for the premiere of the movie “where the wild things are“, I went looking for an 1973 animation movie, based on the same book. In the end, I’ve found out some interesting stuff.

Candles that save water
I’m wondering what they smell like, but… nice idea.
TEDx in Lisbon
This event is not being organized by the TED conferences — this is an independently organized TED event.
Bússola Eleitoral
A little help for the Portuguese elections. Find out to which party you share the same political ideas.
And finally, check Lars von Trier’s Antichrist trailer on Vimeo
Hitchcock and Google Streetview in Matosinhos

let’s look at the trailer

Looking forward to see these movies:

By Francis Ford Coppola, with Vincent Gallo. The trailer looks awesome.

Public Enemies
By Michael Mann. Not the best trailer in the world, but great casting: Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Marion Cotillard (oh la la)

Whatever Works
By Woody Allen. And it really seems like a classic Woody Allen movie, but with Larry David.

Inglosious Bastards
By Tarantino… with Brad Pitt.


Last week I went to see Woody Allen’s latest movie, called “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”. It’s a very entertaining movie, that makes you want to live like that, in permanent vacations, somewhere in a sunny latino country.
I enjoyed the way he filmed Spain. Ok, maybe he used too many cliches, but in the end, I think it works perfectly well, and it’s a very amusing movie. And you just got to love Penelope Cruz performance.
