LOVELY PICTURES FROM DISNEY'S "FROZEN"! BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH JOINS "THE IMITATION GAME"! "FAST & FURIOUS 6" TRAILER WITH LUKE EVANS, VIN DIESEL, DWAYNE JOHNSON, PAUL WALKER

I have a delightful treat for you today: earlier this winter I have introduced you to Disney's new animated movie FROZEN which will open up in cinemas this November showing you the first pictures from the film, and now you can see first two adorable character posters showing Anna, a young adventurer who, in the hopes that she will bring an end to the perpetual winter climate, travels to find her sister, Elsa the Snow Queen whom you can also see in the second poster! Idina Menzel lends her voice to Snow Queen while Kristen Bell lends her voice to Anna, the hero of the story. The
 story of the delightful Disney animated adventure revolves around  a mountain climber and a young girl named Anna who journeys through snowy peaks and dangerous cliffs to find the legendary Snow Queen and end the perpetual winter prophecy that has fallen over their kingdom. The movie is directed by Chris Buck, whom you know as the helmer of TARZAN and SURF'S UP, and Jennifer Lee, whom you know as the screenplay writer for WRECK-IT RALPH!

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
One of Britain's most popular television actors Benedict Cumberbatch, the star of SHERLOCK, whom you will watch later this summer in the long awaited sequel to the legendary science fiction franchise STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, is negotiating to star in a rather shocking THE IMITATION GAME! According to "Deadline" if he takes the gig, Benedict will portray British mathematician Alan Turing, who helped the Allies defeat the Germans in World War II by cracking the complex "Enigma Code" used by the Germans. In the 1950s, he was prosecuted by the British government for being a homosexual. He made the extreme decision to undergo chemical castration instead of going to prison, which demoralized him so much that he committed suicide by eating an apple dosed with cyanide.

FAST&FURIOUS 6 TRAILER
Now, you know that I have never seen a film from this franchise but with such a hunkfest in the cast, including Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker, Vin Diesel and Tyrese Gibson, with HOLLYWOOD SPY's  beloved Luke Evans as the new villain, it would be a sin not to check
FAST & FURIOUS 6! out The first trailer has just been released at the Super Bowl. Since Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian's (Paul Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin's empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete. Meanwhile, Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Luke Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty
(Michelle Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.

  1. Love almost every thing I've seen Benedict Cumberbatch in. This one sounds good too.

    And I only watch The Fast and the Furious to get my Paul Walker fix. And yet I notice your post is conspicuously absent of his photo today, Dezzy. I don't know if I can forgive you for that. :P

  4. Dezmond! Your blog is fun! I didn't know you had this blog. I have seen you make comments to Deb at JKIRF, but somehow missed your blog back when I should have joined it. Thank you for joining me and my little fashionista blog, or what ever it is? I saw the trailer for fast and furious last night on the Super Bowl. The two Disney characters look just like Rapunzel (both good and bad). Just saying.

  10. I think you should watch Fast Five. It's one of my favorite movies. Sure it has some way over the top stunts but Vin Diesel and the Rock in a fist fight was better than anything in the entire movie "Clash of the Titans." And then the ending is just so perfect. Over a hundred million dollars pours out of this vault, and it's just filmed in such a way with a latin beat playing in the background that I just could "feel the money." And I do LOVE money (mostly because I have none).

    1. we do love us money, money is the second best comfort when you have no love :( It can't buy you everything, but it can ease the sufferings :)

  11. I don't think historians are sure whether Turing's death was a suicide, a murder or just an unfortunate accident. There was a made-for-TV movie about his life made once before, starring Derek Jacobi. It was great.

    1. it sure is a very intriguing life and destiny and a reminder of very dark times in which he lived. Not that today's time is much different....

  12. Hi my sweet, Dezz! I know, I've been sadly absent, but I wanted to stop by while I had some computer time and say hi.

    Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel? You know I am there. I've been waiting since the end of Fast Five for this.

    Hugs! Maybe we can chat on FB sometime as I have my iPod.

  17. The 'Imitation Game' looks interesting and the impossibly named Cumberbatch a good choice to portray Alan Turing. Turing is the principle inventor of the 'Bombe', a mathematical number crunching machine which was the world's first computer. Installed at the top secret Blechley Park it was used to crack the German Enigma communications cyphers and not only gave the Allies a war-winning edge but more importantly, prevented Britain's defeat (according to Churchill the 'U-boat menace' came within less than two weeks of starving out the UK which would have forced her surrender).

    Turing was acknowledged by his Cambridge University peers as the most brilliant mind of his generation (and no small accolade given his peers) and it is to the everlasting shame of the British government that a man who did more perhaps than any other individual to win the war against the Nazis was persecuted because of his homosexuality. The actions taken against Turing were little better than those used by the Nazis - the post war part of Turing's short life was a monumental tragedy and if nothing else, the utter waste of one of the most brilliant of minds. I hope the film does Turing justice, its a story that needs to be told.

    Cheers,
    Doc

    1. thanks for the additional info on the tragic story. I really feel small and helpless when I read or hear or experience myself stories in which you get punished for being good, brilliant and when you end up being punished for outstanding efforts. The proof that life is not a fairy tale and that world is ruled by evil forces.

      We had similar story with Serbian scientist Nikola Tesla who literally died in poverty even though the world today wouldn't be remotely the same without his glorious inventions.

      I shall keep my fingers crossed that the film gives some justice to Turing's story and that it will educate people about him.
