Gå i Olsen Bandens Københavnske fodspor – in progress!

Okay I have taking a break from my Olsen Gang project… but looking at my Excel ark with all the location in Copenhagen, I can see I could soon start writing the first part of the guide.

Okay jeg har taget noget af en pause fra mit Olsen Banden projekt, men i dag kiggede jeg lige på excel arket og her kan jeg se at jeg måske kunne skrive første del af Olsen Banden guiden – nemlig den for den første film.

Here’s a taste of what’s to come/ her er en lille smagsprøve:

2015-05-31 15.13.57 Jeg må sige at det ikke var nemt at tage billeder af lokationerne direkte, da der er meget byggeri for tiden – men det er nogenlunde sådan guiolsenbandenden kommer til at foreløbe. Jeg vil beskrive, selve gåturen og hvor det vil være bedst at starte, og så vil jeg prøve at lave et kort over turen så man selv kan gå den – og det vil have informationer omkring hvilken scene det er fra og hvad der sker i scenen.

Olsen Banden location før og nu!

11079582_10153162116303069_2468554517984658368_oOkay… so a few weeks ago I started a project – taking pictures of the Olsen Gang’s locations in Copenhagen, and that made me think about maybe writing a guide – “Gå i Olsen Bandens københavnske fodspor”.

But for now I am still taking pictures and when I think I have enough pictures, I will begin writing the guide!

 

 

 

Black Mass vs Hamlet

So I am living in Denmark… and I took a break from my job
search and was looking on Kino.dk for some film news and I saw that Black Mass will premiere on October 15, which made me think about – can I get to see this, what looks like a really interesting and great film, and see the live transmission of Benedict Cumberbatch as Hamlet which is on the same day.

I could make a Cumberbatch day out of it!

Here’s the trailer for Black Mass: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CE3e3hGF2jc 

 

Frances tries to live in New York and really get her life together

Frances with her friend Sophie

So today I saw the film Frances Ha, for the first time and I must say I was surprised.

If you haven’t seen it or seen it, but can not remember what it is about:

 

Frances lives in New York, but she doesn’t really have an apartment. Frances is an apprentice for a dance company, but she’s not really a dancer. Frances has a best friend named Sophie, but they aren’t really speaking anymore. Frances throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possible reality dwindles. Frances wants so much more than she has but lives her life with unaccountable joy and lightness.

 

I don’t live in New York or I has not even been to the City – but I will go some day – so my life is not quite like Frances’s but through the first half of the film I saw similarities. She does not really have a job – I am unemployed and tries to find a job – just like one of Frances’s roomies, Benji, and she (Frances) just tries to live a life that is good… which is really hard when you don’t have that much money (Yeah I know)!

First she is living and having a really great relationship with her friend Sophie – the one who has her life together (the job, the money and the boyfriend)… so in some the opposite of Frances. But then one day Sophie is moving out and now Frances tries to find another place to live and end up living with two guys – the one is an artist (so having some kind of a job) and one trying to find a job.

I the romance department I must say I agree Benji is right that Frances is “undateable”… but she really tries to find love.

But I must say this film really surprised me… I could relate to many of her problems. But that is not the main thing, that made me love this film. The whole film is filmed in black/white – which I love – and it has a great balance between comedy and drama.

So because I can relate to some of Frances’s life, the way the film is made and the balance between the comedy and drama… and I did not wonder on how it would end and it has this “reality/documentary” feel over it. I will therefore give it 5 out of 6 stars.

So I must say it was a real strong year and I only got 11 right (down 6 from last year) and the best speech in my opinion was Graham Moore’s when he just told everyone that feels weird to continue being weird… So the debut hosting from Neil Patrick was entertaining and good.

That was all.

 

The Imitation Game Instareview

IMG_3946 “The Imitation Game…It’s a game. A test of sorts. For determining whether something is a… a machine or a human being.”
Okay just saw this brilliant movie about how Turing and four other code breakers cracked the “unbreakable” Enigma code. This is first movie in long time that moved me to tears and I couldn’t move for a while. Eventhough there are some inaccuracies (Turing personality and some og the other people) it still entertaining and given that the purpose was to inform people about Turing and how he played a big role in winning WWII and the computer technology we know today – and it is a fiction film – it really captures you and I really have to do with the performance by some great actors. And to end this review Benedict Cumberbatch does an exelent job as Turing… I would recommend people to see this amazing movie if you haven’t already!
