Iasi Day 1 and 2

Day 1:

Vazut in camera Tandoori Love, muzical Tirolesque cu hindusi (sau Tamilici...Tamilieni...).

Cu o tipa f buna. 

Foarte mult placut.

Vazut, tot in camera, Rumba. O comedie absolut infernal de deprimanta. In care probabil se danseaza rumba. Studiile mele de dans nu includ si rumba, din pacate.

Day 2:

Vazut, in cadrul, IIFF urmatoarele:

-30 days of night. Vazut a treia oara ca doar am si dvd-ul. Foarte bun in continuare.

- Giallo. Noul Argento. Cu Adrien Brody si femei foarte urate care, din fericire, nu se desnudeaza. Nici la dus nici nicaieri. Cu un killer care pare a fi offspring-ul lui Maradona cu Toto Cutugno.

Absolut groaznic, s-a ras foarte mult in sala. Argento keeps going worse and worse. Ech.

- Paintball. Film care se trage din Hostel, Battle royale si un pic de Blair Witch. Evident, e mai bun ca Hostel si ca Blair Witch. Dar nu mai bun ca Battle Royale. Oameni care participa la concurs exclusivist de paintball, sunt mitraliati (sau altele). Pas mal. Finalul il fute.

Urmeaza a se vedea "La mujera sin cabeza" care mi se zice ca nu este horror si nici nu se stie daca este so bad it's good. Deci de ce dracu ma duc la el?

In other news, cumparat pe DVD Airport 77, Airport 79, Barbwire, In The Mouth of Madness si Paprika.

Oamenii chiar au accent moldovenesc aici.

Melrose Place Season 1 Episode 1

So, as promised, here's my review of the first episode of Melrose Place 2009.

As everyone should already know, I'm a huge fan of the original Melrose Place. Mainly because of its high camp and cheese value (and because of Heather Locklear, Marcia Cross, Laura Leighton and Daphne Zuniga).

I did not have high expectations from the new show since I saw the extended trailer on youtube. However, after watching the first episode, I was quite surprised and ravished. Sure, it's the first episode and it doesn't have the same force and power the original had (especially during the 3rd, 4th and 5th seasons - the 1st season of the original was crap as it was all about how the, then normal, cast coped with day to day issues etc.) but it has a certain panache and coolness that the original season lacked.

Top it all off with excellent cameos from Sydney (they explain her death in the 7th season - correct me if i'm wrong - with Michael actually helping her fake her death) and Michael Mancini (one of the two coolest characters from the original series) and you've got a show with a tendency for greatness. If only they could keep it up and inject it with the same campiness the original had.

So the story goes like this: new tennants in the apartment complex (completely remodelled of course but all the trademarks are there - especially the pool), Sydney gets killed off in the first minutes of the show (she will still appear through flashbacks), Michael has a son (not clear with whom, yet). 

The characters are, of course, underdeveloped. It is the first episode, really.

We have the Amanda Woodward wannabe (blond publicist, she will most likely be the "bitch" of the show), the Allison - Billy wannabe couple from the original show ( an upcoming movie director and a school teacher - these are my least favourite characters as I've always hated the Allison - Billy couple with a passion), the Sydney wannabe (none other than the horrible Ashlee Simpson) who is, most likely, Sydney's daughter, the Jake wannabe (actually, two characters appear to be the Jake of the new show - Michael's son and the motorcycle guy).

The cast actually seems strong (except a few issues with Michael's son and Ashlee Simpson) and the characters will most likely turn out to be the bastards that we always missed since the original show ended.

There is talk that Josie Bissett (Jane Mancini from  the original show) will appear (IMDB confirms this) and that Daphne Zuniga will appear as well in a story arc (IMDB confirms this as well). Now, if only they would somehow bring Amanda Woodward back. At least her if Marcia Cross will never be on the show (too busy starring in that awful Desperate Housewives).

All in all, I was really impressed as I was actually expecting an awful re-hash of the original show. Instead, I got a good re-hash of the original show with a bit of murder mystery in it.

Extra points for having Bright Eyes and The Killers on the soundtrack.

Now, let's hope it has good ratings and it won't get cancelled.

Review of the first Melrose Place 2009 episode, coming up later...probably this evening.

Mi-a placut mai mult decat ma asteptam.

Steve Irwin 2 Fashion Hunter

Deci my brilliant idea for making easy money in Australia and world wide:

1. Steve Irwin - big australian star, yes? Ca Nicole Kidman si Hugh Jackman but without a sense of fashion.

2. Steve Irwin is dead.

3. Drept urmare, voi lansa un nou show numit Steve Irwin 2 Fashion Hunter unde, in fiecare saptamana cineva se va lupta nu cu crocodili ci cu poshete, genti, pantofi etc. din piele de crocodil.

4. It will be brilliant.

5. Guest starring Jean Paul Gaultier si Karl Lagerfeld.

6. Toate luptele se vor petrece in ciocolata cu orez expandat.

Va multumesc pentru atentie, astept sponsori.

Quick update: pentru geamantanele din piele de crocodil, va fi nevoie de midgets care sa fie introdusi in ele. Pentru cei care spun ca nu sunt pro-cauze umanitare.
