Baywatch

Synopsis:

Lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) and a brash new recruit (Zac Efron) uncover a criminal plot that threatens the future of the bay.
 
Mon avis: 
 
Cela faisait 2 semaines que je n'était pas aller au cinéma et il me fallait un shot pour fixer cela (oui le cinéma est une drogue xD) et vu que j'attendais la sortie de Baywatch avec impatience j'ai couru cette aprèm pour le premier jour de sortie du film. 
 
Et boy il es vraiment bien! Dwayne Johnson es mec tellement cool! J'aimerais vraiment l'avoir en tant que meilleur copain ^_^ Et Zac Efron *O* Ce n'es plus le Troy Bolton que l'on a découvert dans HSM. Il a grandit ce petit.

Le film es aussi vraiment bien. L'histoire tiens la route et il y a de bons gag et de bonnes vannes. Ce n'es pas aussi marrant que ce dont à quoi je m'attendais mais on passe un super bon moment. 

Je le conseil :) 

In English:

It has been 2 weeks since I haven't been to the cinema so I needed a fix (Yes cinema is a drug xD) and because I was really looking forward for Baywatch I ran this afternoon on the first day out of the film.

And boy that is a good one! Dwayne Johnson is such a cool guy! I really want him to be my best friend ^_^ And Zac EFRON *O* He isn't the Troy Bolton we discovered in HSM. This little guy grew up. 

And the film is really nice. The story is good and there are some good gags and nice puch lines. It isn't as funny as I thought it would be but I had a really good time. 

You should see it :)



"Unfiltered" by Lily Collins

Quatrième de couverture: 

In this groundbreaking debut essay collection, featuring never-before-seen photos, actress Lily Collins—star of Mortal Instruments and Rules Don’t Apply—is opening a poignant, honest conversation
 
Mon avis: 
 
Lily Collins n'es pas seulement une bonne actrice, une des mes fashion favourites et la fille de Phil Collins. Elle est aussi une très bonne écrivain.Comme le prouve cette autobiographie.

Lily nous dévoile sa vie sans taboo. De ses petits amis abusifs à sa batailles contre l'anorexie et la boulimie en passant par sa carrière et la relation avec son père. Elle nous parle à coeur ouvert et cela m'a vraiment touché. 

Elle n'a pas eu une vie facile. Comme nous tous. Mais elle c'est battu et continue à ce battre tous les jours. Ce livre m'a tellement rapproché de cette femme. Je ne l'ai jamais rencontré mais ce livre m'a donné l'impression de parler à une super copine pendant une soirée pyjama. 
Je veux être sa meilleure amie maintenant xD 

Si vous connaissez Lily Collins je vous conseil sa biographie :) 

In English:

Lily Collins isn't just a really talented actress, one of my fashion favourites and Phil Collins's daughter. She is also an amazing writer. And this autobiographie proves how good she is.

Lily tels us about her life without any taboo. From her abusives boyfriends to her battle with anorexie and boulimie and from her career to her relationship with her father. She opens up freely and this really touched me. 

She didn't have a really easy life. Like a lot of us. But she fought and keeps fighting everyday. This book really brought me closer to this woman. I never met her but reading this book felt like talking to a friend at a slumber party.
I really want to be her best friend now xD 

If you knoz who Lily Collins is you should read this book :)

Going in style

Synopsis:

Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three men risk it all by embarking on a daring adventure to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.
 
Mon avis: 
 
Si vous vous attendez à du gros "Ocean eleven" n'allez pas voir ce film car celui ci es tout mignon tout pleins! 

3 papys qui ce voient retirer leur retraite décident de braquer une banque. Ils essayent d'abord tous seul en essayant de braquer le supermarché du coin mais bien sure ils foirent. 
Ils vont ensuite faire appel à un professionnel pour de l'aide. 
 
Voir ces trois papys essayer de faire le maximum pour aider leurs familles m'a vraiment touché. Ce film est aussi une belle histoire d'amitié. 
 Et il y a un chiot! *O* 
 
In English: 
 
If you are expecting something big like "Ocean Eleven" donc go see it because this one is juste adorable! 
 
3 grandpa who loses their retirement money decide to rub a bank. At first they try to do it themselves by trying to steal in the local supermarket but they fail.

This film is also a really good story about friendship. 
And there is a puppy! *O*

"I love Dick" by Chris Kraus

Quatrième de couverture:

When Chris Kraus, an unsuccessful artist pushing forty, spends an evening with a rogue academic named Dick, she falls madly and inexplicably in love, enlisting her husband in her haunted pursuit. Dick proposes a kind of a game between them, but when he fails to answer their letters Chris continues alone, transforming an adolescent infatuation into a new form of philosophy.

Blurring the lines of fiction, essay and memoir, I love Dick is widely considered to be the most important feminist novel of the past two decades. With fans as diverse as Lena Dunham, Sheila Heti, Kim Gordon, Leslie Jamison, Zoe Pilger, Tavi Gevinson and Alexa Chung, it is still essential reading; as relevant, fierce and funny as ever. 

Where to find it: Wordery

Mon avis:

Je bosse pour une boutique de livre en ligne et quand j'ai vu le nombre de commandes que nous avons vendu pour celui ci je me suis dit que j'allais essayer... Et j'ai trouver le nom rigolo aussi xD 

Malheureusement je l'ai vite regretter. 
Ce livre es tellement horrible qu'il m'a fallu 1 mois pour terminer la première partie. 

Ce couple passe la nuit chez "Dick" et quand ils voient qu'il es partit le lendemain Chris n'es pas contente, devient accro et n'arrête pas d'en parler à son mari. Sylvère (le mari) propose à Chris d'écrire à Dick pour essayer de la soulager de sa colère. Mais une lettre deviens 2 puis 3 puis 20... ils décident aussi de l'appeler et enregistre les conversations. 

Ils harcèle ce pauvre Dick et je me suis vraiment senti très mal à lire ce livre. 
J'ai eu l'impression de faire parti du harcèlement. C'est pour cela que j'ai décider de mettre fin à cette lecture. 

Je ne le conseil pas du tout. 
J'ai vu par contre que cela à été adapter en film sur Amazon Prime avec Kevin Bacon. Je ne vais pas le regarder car 1) je n'ai pas Amazon Prime xD et 2) Je ne veux pas replonger dans cette histoire. Mais si vous tomber dessus par hasard (ou pas) faites moi savoir de vos impressions. Je suis curieuse. 

In English:

I work for an online bookshop and when I saw the number of orders we had for this book I thought I'd try... And I found the title funny as well xD 

Unfortunately I regreted it really quickly.
This book is so horrible it took me a month to finish the first part.

This couple spend the night at "Dick"'s place and when they see that he is gone in the morning Chris is mad and can't stop talking about him.Sylvère (her husband) proposed that she writes a letter to Dick as it might calm her down. But 1 letter becomes 2 then 3 then 20... They also try to call him and reccord the conversations. 

They are harassing the poor Dick and I felt really bad reading this book. 
It felt like I was part of the harassement. This is why I decided to stop reading it. 

I'm not advising you to read it. 
I also seen that it has been adapted into a film on Amazon Prime with Kevin Bacon. I am not going to watch it because 1) I don't have Amazon Prime xD and 2) I don't want to go back into that story. But if you watch by mistacke (or not) let me know what you think. I'm curious.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2

Synopsis:
The team struggles to keep its newfound family together as it tires to unravel the mystery of Peter Quill's true parentage in the outer reaches of the galaxy.

Mon avis:
Je n'avais pas aimé le premier film. Je l'avais trouvé vraiment ennuyeux mais quand mes amis m'ont demandé si je voulais faire une sortie ciné pour voir le volume 2 j'ai dit oui.
Et je doit dire que j'ai beaucoup aimé! 
L'histoire es cool. Vraiment mieux que le premier film. Et c'est tellement drôle! On ce marre vraiment surtout avec Drax. Et baby Groot es tellement mignon!! J'en veux un!
J'ai hâte de voir le prochain film maintenant. Et je vais surement revoir le premier au cas ou je change d'avis :)

In English:
I didn't like the fist film. I found it really boring but when my friends asked me if I wanted to see Volume 2 I said yes.
And I really enjoyed it!
The story is cool. Much better than the first one. And it's so funny! We laugh a lot especially with Drax. And baby Groot is so cute! I want one!
I'm really looking forward for the next one now. And I'm probably going to watch the first one as well. We never know I might change my mind :)

"Forever" by Maggie Stiefvater

Quatrième de couverture:

When Sam met Grace, he was a wolf and she was a girl. Eventually he found a way to become a boy, and their loved moved from curious distance to the intense closeness of shared lives.

That should have been the end of their story. But Grace was not meant to stay human. Now she is the wolf. And the wolves of Mercy Falls are about to be killed in one final, spectacular hunt.

Sam would do anything for Grace. But can one boy and one love really change a hostile, predatory world? The past, the present, and the future are about to collide in one pure moment--a moment of death or life, farewell or forever.

Mon avis: 

Quand je commence un livre il faut que je le termine même si je n'accroche pas. Ce livre n'a pas fait exception à la règle. Il était tellement barbant! J'ai eu l'impression d'avoir passé des mois dessus mais je l'ai terminé! Youpii! 

Cela es vraiment dommage car j'avais adoré les deux premiers tomes. Cette histoire d'amour impossible entre cette fille et un loup garou dans le premier tome et l'apparition de deux nouveaux personnages dans le second avais donner plus de rythme à l'histoire.

Dans ce tome Sam, Grace Isabel et Cole sont toujours là mais Grace es maintenant un loup, Sam es toujours humain et il passe son temps à ce plaindre car Grace le manque. J'ai eu envie de le claquer du début à la fin! 
Quand Grace redeviens humaine il ne change pas. Il passe donc son temps à avoir peur de la perdre de nouveau. 
Heureusement que Cole es là pour essayer de trouver cet antidote mais malheureusement les chapitres qui lui sont consacrés sont très court et très peu. 

En plus de cela il ne ce passe rien. Il n'y a aucun rythme et inspecteur Koenig sort de on ne sais pas ou et connais le secret des loups garou mais ne nous dit pas comment. Et Sam es tellement stupide qu'il ne demande même pas et accepte son aide. 

Vraiment déçu par ce tome. 
J'espère que le prochain (juste basé sur Isabel et Cole) sera beaucoup mieux que celui ci.

In English:

When I start a book I have to finish it even if I don't like it. And it happened for this book. I was so boring! It felt like I spent months on this one but I managed to finish it. Yeepi!

This is really annoying because I really enjoyed the first two tomes. The impossible love story between this girl and a werewolf in the first tome and the apparition of two more characters in the second one gave more rythm to the story.

In this tomeSam, Grace, Isabel and Cole are still here but Grace is now a wolf, Sam is still a human and he spends his time complaining and misses Grace. I wanted to slap him from beginning to end!
When Grace comes back as a human he doesn't change. He then spends his time scared to lose her again.
Fortunately Cole is here trying to find a cure but unfortunately his chapters are to short and there isn't a lot at all.

And nothing happens. There isn't any rythm and insector Koenig comes out of nowhere and knows about the secret but we don't know how. And Sam is so stupid he doesn't even ask and accept his help.

Really disappointed by this tome. 
I really hope that the next one (only based on Isabel and Cole) will be better than this one.

Ghost in the shell

Synopsis:

In the near future, Major is the first of her kind: a human who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world's most dangerous criminals. When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people's minds and control them, Major is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major discovers that her life was stolen instead of saved. Now, she will stop at nothing to recover her past while punishing those who did this to her.
 
Mon avis:
 
Pour être franche je ne sais pas trop quoi penser de ce film.
Je n'ai jamais vu l'animé (au début j'ai cru que le film était basé sur un jeu vidéo xD) du coup je ne savais pas vraiment à quoi m'attendre. 
L'histoire est un peu longuette, les personnages ne sont pas très intéressant et attachants, par contre le visuel es magnifique! j'ai vu ce film en 2D mais je pense qu'en 3D ça doit déboiter! J'ai aussi pas mal aimé le fait qu'il n'y ai pas de barrière de langue avec le boss qui parle Japonais et le reste du crew en Anglais et tout le monde ce comprend. Scarlett Johansson es parfaite comme toujours et cela à fait du bien de voir Juliette Binoche :) 
 
Donc en gros, d'après ce que j'en ai pensé, vous pouvez aller le voir mais pas besoin de ce précipité car ce n'es pas le film de l'année.
 
In English:
 
To be honest I don't really know what I thought about this film.
I never watched the anime (At first I thought the film was based on a video game xD) so I didn't really know what I was going into.
The story is a bit long, the characters aren't really interesting, but the visuals are amazing! I watched the film in 2D but I bet it's mind blowing in 3D! I also quite liked the fact that there was no language barriers between the characters with the boss speaking only in Japanese and the rest of the crew in English and they all understand each other. Scarlett Johansson is perfect as usual and it was good to see Juliette Binoche :)

So, from what I thought of it, you can go see it but you don't need to rish because it's not the film of the year.
