Great movie, for those who love programming and want to learn about Internet, blogs, networks. Remember that you don't have to go to University to learn those stuff, you can download a pdf or go to forums... you'll improve your skills only if you want.

X-Men: First Class (2011)

Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-MEN. 


So recommended, to watch the beggining of this legendary story!

Student Services (2010)

A cash strapped college student goes to work as an escort in order to make ends meet, only to realize that her education has taken a back seat to her budding career in the pleasure industry. In her struggle to stay financially stable during her first year at the university, 19 year old Laura (Deborah Francois) discovers that a part-time job just won't pay the bills. Then, just when Laura is at her most desperate, she sees an internet ad from a man who's willing to pay £100 an hour to spend an intimate evening with a willing student. Compelled by the lure of some easy money, Laura answers the ad. Later, despite a promise to herself that this will be a once time occurrence, Laura finds herself falling into a new bed every night, and making more money than she ever thought possible. By the time Laura realizes she has stumbled into the downward spiral of prostitution, she begins to doubt her ability to break free from temptation, and finish her education.


Spoken in French with English subtitles, Student Services is a very interesting story of a girl who will do pretty much anything to get by. Francois is terrific as Laura, a strong young woman who is basically just trying to survive in the real world. Writer/director Emmanuelle Bercot (Clement) has crafted a truly beautiful film. The characters are well-developed, the script is genuine and the acting is realistic. Student Services is just exquisite.

Hope you enjoy it!

Coming to terms with the fact that Josue is now homeless and with nowhere to go, the cynical Dora takes it upon herself to care for the woman's orphaned young son. Resisting her initial impulse to make a quick profit off the child, Dora commits to returning him to his father in Brazil's remote Northeast. As buses and trucks carry the motley pair through the increasingly unfamiliar terrain, Dora and Josue defy their initial aversion to each other, journeying closer together and deeper inside themsleves. The trip becomes a quest for their own identities: one boy's search for his father; and one woman's search for her heart.

City of God

"Cidade de Deus" is not only a blow to the consciences asleep resolved without moral recommendations, with the nakedness of poetry and the strength of the facts, but a dense metaphor for society today, although Brazil has set in the grandeur of universal validity. The film bears the same name as a large slum in Rio de Janeiro created in the 60s as rash humanity free solution to meet the need for housing in a city doomed to a disproportionate growth and unmanageable. A few years after its construction, Cidade de Deus was already a hell, a suffocating and also one of the most dangerous in the world. In this context takes the story that this movie with a storyline set by the avatar of two young grown in the streets, in almost identical conditions and circumstances, however, two very different outcomes. One of them will survive become fatally drug trafficker and eventually work in occupations below the lumpen. The other escape the life he has touched the goal of taking refuge in your camera to capture the reality that without makeup or retouching. Both of them know what violence is, what is life for the sole purpose of survival. It is a hard film, uncomfortable to talk about our cities, hypocrisy, misery. Ourselves.

That's the trailer:

Enjoy it! Great film!

El secreto de sus ojos - The secret in their eyes

Hi guys! This is my first post and I hope you like it!

This film is based on the story "La pregunta de sus ojos" by Eduardo Sacheri. The argentinian director, Juan José Campanella, is very famous because of his works: he has directed two episodes of House MD an produced lots of interesting programs for the national channel in his country. 
As you may know, the movie is so famous due to the Oscar to the Best Foreign Language Film that won in 2010, after the great success in 2009, when it reached 2 million spectators, being one of the most viewed movies in the history of Argentina. Moreover, it won prizes in more than 10 film festivals, nationals and also internationals.

Benjamin Esposito (Ricardo Darín) has just retired after a lifetime of working as a clerk in a criminal court. To occupy his free time he decides to write a novel based on a true story of what has been a witness and protagonist, the story of a murder in Buenos Airen in 1974, and research to find the culprit.
Argentina is with its burden of violence and death, marked the lives of the characters, and although Esposito suppose that weaves the story speaks only of the past, the searchlight in a gritty his life and his present , and you face a dilemma of love haunts him for too long.
Reconstructing the past will lead him to delve into their feelings,their own behaviors and decisions, and eventually become not literary exercise, but the key that lets you open the door to live the rest of his life.

I'll put the trailer for you! (with english subtitles)

Well, that's all.. I'll be posting as soon as possible..
