Gotta Love It
»
I love this movie. The first thing that got me interested was the scenes of Paris right in the beginning. They were beautiful, authentic shots. Next, was the fact that the main character was a writer. Usually I wouldn't expect writers as a main character and I think that having that as an occupation was unique. The names of the characters were unique too; names that you wouldn't find in mainstream movies. As a student of the Humanities, I really found the connection to Humanities very enjoyable. I got a real good kick out of it because of all the people I knew and learned about over the years. I recommend this movie to any Humanities student (you will love it) and anyone who ever dreams about going to Paris. The last thing that I really liked about the movie was the plot. I haven't seen many Woody Allen movies but I've seen a lot of movies in general and I think that the plot was interesting and unique. Watch it!
James Horner's Best
»
I remember the first time I heard this soundtrack. I was eight years old and I immediately fell in love with it. This is by far my favorite soundtrack by James Horner. It's completely mesmerizing with the vocals of Charlotte Church and the moving piano lines. James Horner really captured John Nash's genius with the moving lines which resembles a ticking, mathematical brain. I recommend this soundtrack to anyone and everyone who likes listening to soundtracks.
What a Book
»
So, this is the first time I read something new. I was reading a part of it and I was instantly hooked by the fast paced prose and the action at the beginning. As I said in my last sentence this book is fast paced with few details, just enough to get the reader going and understand what's happening. As a person who likes detail I would've liked a bit more, but the story is intriguing on its own. The main character isn't your normal hero because she's overweight at first. I like a change in the female character. Overall, I think it's a good read for anyone with just enough action and romance. If you like fast paced stuff, this is your book.
A Taste of France

Yann Tiersen is one of my favorite composers, and he does a good job of really putting France into his music. Of course, this movie is French and takes place in France, but it's still good music.
Teens in other Places

If you like Japan, but don't know anything about the teenagers who live there, I recommend this short, but colorful book about teenagers in Japan. It was very informational and interesting to read. It's also quick and easy.
