Yeah, I know, I haven't posted in AGES! But for a very good reason - I've been busy, and not just WORK busy! ;)

I had stuff to to every weekend! And not WORK stuff, but FUN stuff, with my friends! And [ profile] rjann of course - some made him happy, some not, but I loved every minute!

OH, not to mention that during the first two weeks I watched the Olympics whenever I could - yes, even during the night! I watched the opening ceremony, saw most of men's volleyball - and I knew that they wouldn't, unfortunatelly, win the Gold Medal, but I was happy with the Silver one. I saw César Cielo and Maurren Maggi win their Golden Medals - they were so happy! And they deserved those! That french guy SO had an eye on Cielo! He opened his suit after he won the Gold Medal without being asked to! XD And I saw the women's volleyball team win a much worthy Golden Medal.

First weekend I worked on saturday and spent sunday with my boyfriend, [ profile] rjann. We watched the third mummy movie the friday before the weekend, and on tuesday the 12th, I attended the Clone Wars premiere, like I mentioned on my last entry.

Second weekend I worked on sunday, but on saturday we had a "chá bar" - it's like a bridal shower, only it's for the couple and not just the bride. It was a party for Rafael's friend, Fábio and his fiancée Lívia. And it was a fantasy party, so, Rafael and I took our "Incredibles" costumes off the closet, we went there, and we WON a surprise fantasy costume! It's funny how that is one of our favorite costumes - AND it was cheap! But really, when we got there, we took quite some time to enter the party, because when we got to the door everybody wanted to take a picture! ;)

Third weekend, no work. I had set up with people from my residence and university - Rafael (a friend, not my boyfriend! ;)), Halime, Carlos and his girlfriend, and Marianne (who didn't go) - to go to the movies on saturday in the evening. They wanted to watch "Zohan" after a quick dinner, but I ended up skipping that - for a very good reason - and in the end me, my boyfriend, and Luciana and her boyfriend (who met us there by chance) ended up watching "Wanted" - it's an entertaining *BOYS* movie.

The reason I skipped dinner? Two friends of mine from my first medical residence - Luzia and Marco - had been trying to meet me for a while, and when they learned we were going to a shopping mall near where they live on that day, we decided to meet there before I met the other gang, and Luzia asked me to be her BRIDESMAID! I'm so happy! I love them both, and they are perfect together, and I'm so happy to be their bridesmaid!

Next day, Rafael and I had a pork barbecue with Gustavo and his family for lunch, and in the evening I left for a proper bridal shower! Another friend - Dominique - who finished my current medical residence last year. It was very funny!

Fourth weekend, I worked on sunday, but spent the whole saturday with my boyfriends, watching "How I Met Your Mother" - truestory! ;)

And then, my last weekend was the best. Had lunch at B52's with [ profile] dtissagirl, [ profile] tatileite, [ profile] andreh and [ profile] weirdgirlie - she has just come back from a trip to the USA. Too bad I had to cut it short, because in the evening I had Dominique and Luis Eduardo's marriage to attend!

It was a BLAST! Rafael - my boyfriend - wasn't so happy to attend the ceremony, because he hates weddings, but he obliged like the good boyfriend he is! ;) And he was SO HANDSOME in his suit! Love you, hun! The ceremony was simple but beautiful, and the party was AWESOME! I was driving, so I didn't drink - well, I sipped other's bevereages, but didn't drink one completely by myself - but the rest of the gang drank, and A LOT! Marianne, Rafael (again, friend, not my boyfriend), Flávio and Carol were HILARIOUS! Marianne and Flávio were SO DRUNK! It was funny to make fun of them - and they were talking complete nonsense during the last half of the party. We danced until the very end of the party, we talked, we laughed, it was TOTALLY AWESOME! And we saw old friends who had finished their residence last year - Tatiana, Juliana, and Fabricio, who is living in São Paulo now with his fianceé. I will try and post pictures in the next few days - once Carol has sent me hers! ;)

OH, and yesterday I watched "Tropic Thunder" which was a better comedy than the average american comedy has been this past few years - plus, it had RDJ in it, and Tom Cruise in a role that wasn't as annoying as his last ones have been! We sure had an stellar cast on that movie!

*sigh* I'm tired just to remember all the fun I had this past month! :D

So, let's see what I did this week - did I do everything I planned to? Er, NO! :P But it was a good week! :D

On sunday, I went to the movies, but King Fu Panda was sold out! :(

Tuesday I went to the movies, but I ended up watching "What Happens in Vegas" with Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher instead of "Prince Caspian". Cute movie, funny, and my friend kept telling me how Ashton was hot, but everytime she told me that, I thought "But, OMG, he is KELSO!" Yep, "That 70s show" fan here! :P

Wednesday night I worked on one of my extra shifts outside the medical residence.

Thursday was my second attempt to watch "Prince Caspian". Met [ profile] weirdgirlie, had some Pizza Hut - gotta love their Pepperone! :P - and then...guess what we watched at the movies? Ta, da, taranan...yes, IRON MAN! RDJ FTW! XD

I sooooo wanna a Iron Man 2 or an Avenger movie, like, RIGHT NOW, so I can actually watch ANOTHER movie! :D Though..."The Dark Knight" would also do the trick - hell, it would be AWESOME! Is it July 14th yet???

And last night I finally managed to watch "Kung Fu Panda". It's a cute movie, perhaps one of the best Dreamworks 3D movies...but I still prefer Pixar! :P

This week! "Hancock" tomorrow - or perhaps the new Shialayman movie - and, again, I will try and watch "Prince Caspian" during the week - though now we don't have the subtitle version showing in theaters anymore, just the dubbed portuguese version.

One last thing before I go, though!

Got this from [ profile] alphabet26

Despite a set back this week in one of my projects, I have two GREAT news!

#1 I'm on VACATION this month! I sure need the rest! I'm still doing my extra shifts because they aren't connected to my medical resident...and my boyfriend will be working... One can't have it all, I guess. But it's some! :)

#2 AND I finally, FINALLY and OFFICIALLY am OFF SUNDAYS DAYS SHIFTS! Still doing the nights, but I'm OFF THE DAYS!!! YAY!

Btw, last night I went to the movies to watch WAAAAAAALL-E! So cute! And it sure sends an important message about how we are handling our one and only World.

Speaking of movies, last week I saw Get Smart and it was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO funny! Hilarious, really! My boyfriend laughed so much and so hard a guy in front of us kept eyeing us annoyed! But I love Anne Hathaway, and I think Steve Carrell is incredibly funny - come on, you just have to look at his face and you'd want to start giggling! The effect is even greater when he is doing a comedy! Loved the uterus dialogue, btw! XD

So, plans for this week:

Tomorrow - OMG! I HAVE FREE SUNDAYS! YAY! - I plan to watch Kung Fu Panda with [ profile] rjann in the afternoon.

Monday is actually my last day at work before vacations, so, work is going to be done! XD

Tuesday - or Wednesday depending on one thing - I think I'm going to Barra to watch two movies at UCI NYCC. At 20h45 Chronicles of Narnia - Prince Caspian and then, perhaps, at 23h45 Iron Man - yes, again! :P Perhaps followed - or preempted - by some Pizza Hut. Hum. I guess if anyone would like to make me company?? *cof[ profile] weirdgirliecof*

Let's see if I actually manage to make all this, shall we? ;P OH, I will also try to post later this week my TO DO list for the vacation!
Just a warning - Iron Man and Hulk casting spoilers ahead.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still more of a DC girl than a Marvel girl, but I do have to admit that Marvel is going about his superheroes team movie better than DC is.

Let's, for the purpose of this little essay, take this two team formations - both are just assumptions/suggestions made by me and not really canon-accurate:

Justice League: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Flash (and perhaps Ajax and/or Hawkgirl)

Avengers: Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor (wishful thinking: Spider-Man and/or Wolverine)

What is DC doing?

We had four Superman and four Batman movies in the 80s and 90s respectively. They had few qualities, but they also quite a few problems. Then, in the last few years, they decided to ressurect - or rather reinvent - this characters. We had Batman Begins which is an AWESOME Batman movie with a previously not so well know actor, Christian Bale, who had a lot of actor expertise. And we had Superman Returns, with Brandon Routh, who is hot but, frankly...not so good an actor, and unexperienced. *runs from the Brandon Fans Mob (TM)*

And now they want to do a Justice League movie with NEW actors in the roles of Superman and Batman, and with Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and the rest of them UNINTRODUCED, without previous movies dedicated solely to them and their storyline set up.

Now, what is Marvel doing?

We had three X-Men movies. The first two were TOTALLY AWESOME and were responsible for the trend of Marvel - and why not say also DC? - superhero movies made to be blockbusters every other year. Then we had the three Spider-Man movies, which were also awesome.

Ok, we had two Fantastic Four and one Daredevil, movies that were not that great, and an Elektra movie I'm not even going to count - let's cross it together and throw it in the trash with Catwoman, shall we? - but we had great Marvel movies. And Hulk 2003...well, it had Eric Bana as an eyecandy, and that was it.

But, BUT! Now we have an AWESOME Iron Man movie, and a new Hulk movie coming out. Iron Man featured Robert Downey Jr, who I always thought was a GREAT actor - I LOVED him in Chaplin! I know he took some wrong steps in his personal life but now he put that behind and just made the GREATEST COMEBACK EVER! AND we have a new Hulk movie coming out, with Edward Norton, another GREAT actor, with great acting abilities - LOVED him in American History X!

Two great actors, perhaps not Big Names - and therefore with not so large a cache - but with great acting abilities. OMG, just to imagine Robert and Edward acting in the SAME movie, in the SAME screen...AND we would have Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury! I SO WANT TO SEE THIS MOVIE! XD

Also, Marvel intends to make movies for the other Avengers members before an Avenger movie, setting up each one's storyline.

So, I'm sure they are going to go the same way and choose nice GOOD actors to do Captain America and Thor - heh, I personally would like to see someone like Dennis Quaid as Captain America, but that's wishful thinking. And yes, he is a nice actor, I like him. :P

Man, the day this Avengers movie comes out... I might fall to the Marvel side of the Force! :P

Yeah, I know I rambled...but I just wanted to put that to the paper, so to speak.

On three unrelated notes:



3) In 15 minutes it's going to be Valentines Day here in Brazil, so...[ profile] rjann I LOVE YOU! Let's see if I'm going to eat chocolate the day after tomorrow or not...Miss you, see you tomorrow! ;)
This week I watched only two movies from the Rio International Movie Festival. My opinions on the movies - with spoilers - are under the cuts!

A Prairie Home Companion )

Black Dahlia )

I also wanted to watch The Fountain, but couldn't get tickets for me and [ profile] rjann to watch it together, so, we'll have to wait until it premieres here in the big circuit, not to mention Hollywoodland - this one I missed for various reasons: the delay in releasing the tickets to sell, being showed TODAY, when we had our elections for president and governor, and because I overslept today because I had forgotten about it.

But I still have two movies to watch this week! Driving Lessons - RUPERT! YAY! - which [ profile] patigwblack bought tickets for us to go, and The Departed, IF I can buy tickets at*kicks website*

And since I talked about our elections...Rant about Brazillian politcs in Portuguese )

Ok, over to more happy subjects now...PRISON BREAK! Yeah, I got addicted to it too! And yes, I've finally catch up with it all, up until ep 2.06! Here is what I think about PB from episode 1.13 up to 2.06 )

I still need to watch Desperate Housewives 3.01, Smallville 6.01, and Studio 60 1.02...

A HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Julie Andrews! I love her! *starts whistling some Sound of the Music song*

AND at last but not least - OCTOBER 6 IS COMING AT LAST! XD
I almost forgot to leave reviews for the two movies I've already seen in the festival - it's not over yet, I still have about 5 more to watch - one of them tonight - but I want to review the ones I've already watched!

The Illusionist )

Little Miss Sunshine )

The Devil wears Prada - no, it's not in the festival, but it premiered here this weekend )

VM 3.01 )

PB Season 1 episodes 2 to 12 )

Now, gotta rush to another Rio Festival movie!!! :D
OMG, I haven't felt this excited about anything HP related in a LONG time!

But we have the first official Umbridge's picture! A trio picture with Hermione holding Harry's hand! Another Umbridge picture, this time with Trewlaney and McGonagall! Gotta LOVE those McGonagall and Umbridge scenes! Best ones in the book!

AND A DUMBLEDORE'S ARMY PICTURE! With Luna! In her Hogwarts robes!

If you guys have NO idea what I'm talking about, just head over here!

That DA picture was so full of shipperness that I just HAD to icon it - I actually stayed awake to do so! So, here you go! One of Luna, and a few shipper ones!

If you take, comment and credit! :)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Well, at least credit, ok? ;)

*snorts* Like someone would get interested in those silly and poorly made icons...oh, well, I had fun with these, and got the itching scratched! ;)

Remind me next time - when I'm not scr*wed to get up early in the morning more awake - to talk about VM 3.01 and Prison Break 1.02 up to 1.12, ok? Yes, I did watch VM's 3rd season premiere already, and yes, I did watch PB this weekend! Up until 1.12, at least! ;)
Happy birthday to two of the brightest witches in our century, [ profile] edeainfj and Hermione! :D

Now, for the cariocas who are going to Rio's movie festival, this is my tentative program for it - I NEED THE FULL PROGRAMMING! PRINTED! ON MY HANDS! Otherwise I can't choose properly - let me know what are yours!

This can change, the only session that's set in stone that I'M GOING is Driving Lessons on the 5th at 21h30! YES, I'M GOING TO WATCH Ron Rupert on the big screen getting it on with Hermione some girl...;)

Festival do Rio )

I also need to know the sessions for HOLLYWOODLAND! It seems this is not on the festival's website yet...
LJ seems to be acting up today...*sigh*

Saw two movie trailers today, from movies I'm waiting for.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Johnny Deep and Keira Knightley have some really cool scenes in this action and special effects-packed trailer. But we have very few scenes with Orlando Bloom. I wonder if that's because his character, despite being a pirate's son, never wanted to be a pirate, while on the other hand Keira's always wanted to be one. Her scene killing two "sea pirates" with two swords? Looks promising. I have to say I'm worried about this movie because it's a sequel, and it was filmed together with the third of the franchising, but from all the movies I can't wait to see that are about to premiere and that I'm worried about - and I think I'm worried about all of them - this one is the one that worries me the least.

Superman: Returns I posted about this in a reply to [ profile] louisemcgregor's post, but I'm reposting here. Yes, the trailer is AWESOME, the airplane scene with Super trying to catch the plane but ripping of its wing was OMG!PERFECT!, and all Super's flying scenes were cool. Clark breaking the glass covering Lois, Jason and Richard's photograph is a great scene too - as well as the last one, with the famous lines "It's a bird. It's a plane. No, it's..." *Clark enters the room*

Kevin Spacey is disturbingly similar to Gene Hackman! XD And I mean that in a good way! He grasped Gene's interpration spot on, except for one bit - at least I hope! I don't think he will play him like a clown, like Gene did, but rather like a psycopath, which I think is more fitting.

But two things I can't cope with in the trailer. Lois and the kid.

I still don't like Bosworth as Lois. Ok, she said something fitting for Lois, when she said she didn't need a savior. But she didn't say like Lois would say - her entonation, her voice, her body language, all wrong IMHO. Well, I know I will only be able to really judge her when I actually see the movie - right, Priw? - but...she just doesn't feel right.

And the kid IS Clark's. Period. Either that, or Brian Singer is a dead man. XD

I actually have a theory about that - Lois was pregnant when Clark erased her memory at the end of Superman 2. When Superman left, she started dating Richard, and when she found out she was pregnant, having no recollection of sleeping with Clark because he eraser her memory, she thought the baby was Richard's! XD And when Jason - it's the kid's name, isn't it? - does something, in the very end of the movie, like flying, she will remember all of it! And probably smack Clark on the face - not that THAT will do any harm to him physically, but perhaps it will hurt his pride! XD

I really want to trust Brian Singer blindly, he did great movies until now,'s Superman! *is afraid*

Anyway, is it June yet? :)
Part 1: Veronica Mars

Even though there is a certain scene that made me squee, because, OMGSWAY!, the show still doesn't feel like last season - granted, this was one of the few episodes that got close to it,'s just isn't last season. I've noted that for quite some time now, and you guys have noted it too, so, it's no surprise, but...*sigh* I'm not as excited about it as I was with season one. Anyway, gotta love Weevil (yes, even with what he did this episode), Logan, and a couple of Veronica moments, like the dance moment, and her "Damn my curiosity!" moment. And I like Beaver and Mac - I hope it works out in the end.

Part 2: V for Vendetta

Watched it yesterday with [ profile] rjann, and he was quite excited about it! Actually, everybody seemed excited about it, but even though I liked it, I was not OMG! GREAT MOVIE! like I usually am when I get excited about a movie. Don't get me wrong, I like Natalie Portman, and I don't think they could have picked a better actor to portray V than Hugo Weaving, because his voice conveys his emotions and even face expressions hidden by the mask, but...I wasn't excited. Even though I liked the movie. I guess I'm losing interest in movies in general.

*slaps herself* Ok, sorry, little moment of insanity here. I mean, how can I be NOT interested in movies? I mean, we have X3 coming out which will suck, I know, and Superman Returns which will also suck - don't let me get started on how I hate the idea of Lois having a kid that isn't Super's, and Pirates of Caribbean II and III and I fear for both because they are sequels, and those have a high chance of being bad.

Ok, where has gone my usually cheerful self? My movie!geek self? My eight or eight-hundred self, that only allows me to hate or to idolize something? *hangs her head in shame*

Well, let's hope I'm proven wrong and the next movies I go watch rock my world, right? ;) Though I have a feeling this sort of numbness has something to do with work, and that won't go away anytime soon. *sigh*

Part 3: Harry and Ginny and Peter and MJ

So, today I spent a most awesome day cuddling with my boyfriend and watching Spiderman II, and I must say that Ginny is SO gonna kick Harry's @$$ in book 7 and tell him that it's her CHOICE to be next to him, to fight with him, and to risk her neck and her life! I know this similarity has been pointed many times before, but I just wanted to say that again! :)

And I want to watch Spiderman III! Because I *think* that movie has a high chance of getting me excited over movies again! ;)
