Known films of science fiction which has been mentioned by some scientists as outstanding and also inspiring for their areas of study.
Nothing like science fiction, nothing like science fiction movies. The importance of this genre transcends many aspects and, best, there for all tastes and is present in almost any artistic expression; However the works often are under scrutiny and scientific rigor, the argument is sometimes lax allowing broad licensing of fiction; others, all otherwise.
Whatever the bias, in that broad spectrum covering science fiction, we review the opinions of scientists on their favorite films of this genre. After this listing, we have a special bonus of the brilliant Neil DeGrasse Tyson on favorite science fiction films. The films below are all available to watch online on putlocker.
10. The War of the Worlds (1953)
Seth Shostak knows of what he speaks in recommending this film based on the novel by H.G. Wells published in 1897, it is the director and senior Center astronomer for SETI research(Search for extraterrestrial intelligence). Shostak says that alien life will be in twenty years… and if not, will buy us a coffee. On the movie directed by Byron Haskin said that, after seeing it, “he was sick all night” and that “this is the mark of a film that has made a difference”. There is also a version of 2005, directed by Steven Spielberg, although not so fortunate.
9 Star Wars (1977)
No doubt a film that is not out of any recommendation from science fiction. For Aaron Blaisdell, Professor at the UCLA Brain Research Institute in the field of Behavioral Neuroscience, the film directed by George Lucas marked his life from the age of 9 (many not?), which says that “nothing so fantastic and inspiring had been exposed before on the big screen”. At the same time,Siddhartha Srinivasa of The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University working on a robot C-3PO-like servant and ensures that “fiction stimulates science, that points to a future that we must fight”.
8. Blade Runner (1982)
This cult movie directed by Ridley Scott shows a mind-blowing post-apocalyptic view of Earth, as well as an impressive technological advance: androids with human aspect so sophisticated that an official unit is necessary to exterminate those who move out of its directors. For Daniel Novy, scientist at the MIT Media Lab, explains: “the inspiration is important, even at the expense of some accuracy.” Blade Runner is based on the novel ‘ Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’ Philip k. Dick, an of the 13 books science fiction every geek should read.
7. Jurassic Park (1993)
The first installment of the, now, Steven Spielbergblockbuster franchise, left us open-mouthed with adaptation to film of the novel of the same name by Michael Crichton. No doubt a revolutionary and spectacular idea for scientific geneticists, anthropologists, and a lot of other areas are in the same place: Jurassic park. Thus, to Jack Horner, famous anthropologist, “Jurassic Park represents the science that we wish were really“. Horner was the discoverer of the Maiasaura, a dinosaur ornitopodo hadrosaurido, who lived at the end of the Cretaceous period, which appears in the Jurassic Park novels, although absent from the films. Even in the new film of the franchise does not appear, there is a long list of new dinosaurs appearing in Jurassic World.
6. WALL-E (2008)
Steven Schlozman, Assistant Professor in the area of Psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School and Lecturer in Education, comments on WALL-E, “these films reflect our conceptualization of the self, then distort what we see”, and goes further: “in WALL-E do you feel closest to the robots or humans?” Big question right? So, this Disney-Pixar film was directed byAndrew Stanton, and is based on the fabulous script by Peter Docter, writer and director of the beautiful Inside-Out which also has importantscientific studies that support it.
5 Fantastic Voyage (1966)
This film directed by Richard Fleischer shows us the history of the “fantastic voyage” through the human body which is performed on a submarine for Ocean Exploration, reduced to microscopic size in the center of miniaturization American to save the life of Jan Benes. For David Carroll, director of the Center for nanotechnology and materials molecular of Wake Forest University, this film it echoed in his work, since “is exactly what we are working: the injection of nanobots that found a cancerous tumor, say when they found it and destroy it”. As a final note, this film inspired the novel by the great Isaac Asimov’s the same year, titled in Spanish as ‘fantastic voyage‘.
4. Alien (1979)
Dear Alien franchise is designated by Terry Johnsson Professor and researcher in bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley, as one who has “based the life cycle of their xenomorphs in parasitic wasps in the land”, also adds: “it is a pleasure to watch a movie that recognizes how strange life can be“.
3. Brazil (1985)
“I became an architect who works in the cities of the future,” says Mitchell Joachim Professor at New York University and co-founder of the urban project (mind-blowing) Terreform 1. And is that in this film of the great Terry Gilliam, Joachim found “a fascinating scenario ubando and dystopian”, it adds: “is dreamy and full of irony in a technological society of the South. But the message is about our human shared goal of wanting a better place (to live)“.
2. The Matrix (1999)
No doubt this film by the Wachowski brothers is a reference in the world of cinema and science fiction. A hectic plot, an intertwined and complicated argument was revealed to us little by little in the franchise, after the outbreak of this tape of 1999;that Jeremy Bailenson, the Stanford University completo Virtual Human Interaction Lab co-founder, said: “The Matrix brought to light virtual reality“, and for good reason. And he adds, “It became easier for me to communicate the results of research about the avatars, agents and virtual reality to people who are not scientific.”
1. 2001: a Space Odyssey (1968)
A work that usually appears at the top of all count. Directed byStanley Kubrick his script was made by the same director andArthur C. Clarke; based on the Novella of the same ‘The Sentinel’ Clarke, published in 1948. For Anders Sandberg, researcher at the Future of Humanity Institute of Oxford University “2001 is thoroughly realistic, making every effort to represent a lunar colony and a manned expedition to Jupiter”.And adds: “I saw her for the first time when I was a teenager, I knew the story, but as I saw it, I was more and more fascinated“.
As I said at the beginning, we have included a few recommendations of the footballer Neil DeGrasse Tyson, after 8 books that any intelligent person should read according to this same scientist. Some of the films already mentioned above named them Tyson in his 10 favorite sci-fi movieslist; but we present the remaining:
After seeing the first glimpses the characters of planes (plans), animation of Walt Disney Pictures revealed the profiles of each one of them. Here details on Dusty, Skipper, Lead bottom, Dottie, Chug, Ripslinger, El Chupacabra, Bulldog, Ishani, among others, in the movie (Tinker Bell and the lost treasure) Kläy Hall premiering on October 10
Dusty is a plane with high expectations, literally speaking. This sprayer simple propeller aircraft, dreams of participating, along with his high-flying heroes, in an international career. The fact that it is not really designed to compete in the races does not stop move forward with his dream, even if it could be his fear of heights. With a little help from his friends, and a veteran of the second world war with wisdom of spare, Dusty takes off on the adventure of his life, finding Helix to Helix with great champions as she dares to altitudes as high as I had never imagined.
Old lone Corsair marine, Skipper was a flier and dear Squadron smiling keys top instructor, until an incident during a combat mission away from the front lines and left him in land of lifetime. Currently, Skipper is very secretive, but his quiet existence gives a turnaround when the ambitious and persistent Dusty asks air tips – and along the way, receives a couple of life lessons-. But Skipper, who never actually managed to AmigaOS with its past, discovers that he also has some things to learn, and while you train to Dusty to fly better and faster, the teacher becomes the student.
Leadbottom is a lazy and complainant, one of those who always see the glass “half empty”. As the owner of the Vita-Minabono, a special blend – although putrid – vitamins, minerals and compost making miracles when sprayed on the crops, Leadbottom has no time for the extravagant aspirations of Dusty flight.There are too many to fumigate crops and not enough hours in the day to do so. For Leadbottom, work comes first, and then… well, then also comes the work.
Dottie is a fork lift awarded by forklift certification laredo, co-owner and operator of the service Fill ‘n’ Fly station. As a practical and direct friend of Dusty – not to mention it is ACE of the mechanical – Dottie hopes to keep their high hopes with the wings on Earth: Dusty is not made for running and pursue his dream, it is really dangerous. However, no matter what he decides; She will always be there to support it.
The truck’s fuel Chug is a rough type. He works hard as a co-owner of station service Fill ‘n’ Fly – but it is compensated by giving in to a dose of its own fuel, from time to time-. He has a great personality and is a fearless advocate of Dusty high efforts. Indeed, not only is friend of Dusty, but also his trainer and his biggest fan. And if Chug can not help you reach new heights, you can find who can do.
With more wings which could count and an abundance of fans, Ripslinger is, without exaggeration, the greatest name of aerial competition, and he knows it.But despite its financing by clouds and its advanced equipment, the champion of the world still does not play clean, especially when it’s a small small airplane, with no experience in racing. Dusty has no place in the sport of Ripslinger and his mere presence makes boil the fuel of champions. And if the lack of experience of Dusty not out of the race, the vast Empire of Ripslinger includes a couple of bit honored that dealing with that kind of ‘business’.
Ned and Zed
The pompous Ripslinger, Ned and Zed team runners, specializes in sabotage.Lacking the skills to truly win the race to their competition, they simply eliminate them, facilitating a safe victory of his boss, Ripslinger, in each race. Zed, a loud and brash corridor, and Ned, a rare specimen up to itself, will not be the smartest in the hangar, but both have found a way to collaborate with Ripslinger fame.
Super charming, El Chupacabra is a legend in Mexico (just ask him). Driven by his passion for racing, this covert Casanova is everything less discreet: its thunderous and his charismatic presence are as great as its huge engine.Peers do not understand at all what is truth and what is illusion when it’s the Chu, but there is something no doubt: it competes with all passion and more drama than recommended when it comes to great heights.
Bulldog has competed for longer than any other driver on the circuit. As the oldest and, without doubt, the wisest, he remembers the time in which there were no GPS, when the real racers relied on its gyroscopes and sailed guided by the stars. When it comes to racing, it comes down to two qualities, according to Bulldog: good flight and sportsmanship. Point and apart. While the rest of the competitors are asking in secret if this old aircraft already left behind their golden age, the back flight in the standings again, demonstrating that this Bulldog has not lost bite force.
Ishani, reigning champion of the India independence, is a real beauty to behold, but unrelenting in the heights. Thanks to its competitiveness of high speed and remarkable talent, has accumulated more than a thousand millions of loyal followers, including a rookie runner that goes to it looking for guidance. Exotic and mysterious, Ishani is full of surprises but always has his sights set on the Grand Prix.
Bravo and echo
Armed with stellar instincts, incredible aerial capabilities and outstanding service records, Bravo and ECHO are two members of the best troops of the smiling keys. These warplanes are also avid fans of air racing, with a special affinity for Dusty, taken by your smiling keys logo. And, in pilots, nothing is lost with having a couple of soldiers near where any airplane hesitate under immense pressure from the more rigorous the World rally.
This irascible career officer creates rules for races against time Rally wings over the world, with a wry sense of humor and a personality without detours. In fact, Roper never loses an opportunity to offer their own version of the events that unfold. With malicious comments and observations, Roper is fun but firm in dealing with competition and runners.
The friendly Zeppelin Colin spoiler attended the prestigious school Zeppelin Broadcasting School and began his career as the Rapporteur of balloons of Pacific Coast racing. He obtained his leap to fame – so to speak – when its weekly summary of news of sports was seen by the producers of the chain Racing Sports Network (RSN).

In CINEMANIA we had planned to recommend the Camp Ivanhoe, a place very cool in New England where the Scouts persimmon have a refuge. But, as that site is already reserved by Wes Anderson and the protagonists of Moonrise Kingdom (which opens this Friday, with Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray and many other talents) we offer you one of our comprehensive reporting with the best facilities in the world of cinema. All of them are of proven quality, and tuition costs just what rent a dvd.
We visited it in… The incorrigible meatballs(1979)
Facilities and services:You are not going to deceive, readers: the camp of the North Star is falling to pieces, monitors are some frescoes, and the kids who populate it, future meat of presidio. To make matters worse, residents are engaged in a perpetual war against the snobs of the Camp Mohawk, on the other shore of the Lake. Then, what we recommend? Simple: the head of monitors is none other than Bill Murray.To that makes you want to sign up?
We visited it in… You to Boston and I to California(1961)
Facilities and services:Unlike the unspeakable North Star, this resort for daughters of wealthy families is much more limpito, is situated in the idyllic landscapes of the American Maine, and his governing team (female, of course) is athletic and responsible.Its activities include rides cross-country, sailing courses, and the reunion between two twin (embodied both by Hayley Mills) separated at birth by divorced and irresponsible parents. The 1998 remake you to London and I to California led us again, this time with Lindsay Lohan in the dual role.
We visited it in… The Addams Family: the tradition continues(1993)
And facilities: do you have in hands a problematic child, or two? You like to stop of rarities and learn the benefits of a lifestyle once normal?So don’t think about it more, because camp Chippewa is the ideal place for it: idyllic in appearance, hides a terrifying disciplinary system that will leave your little beast as a mauve. Always, that Yes, that the beast in question does not have the brain, and the evil of Wednesday (Christina Ricci), in which case the thing will end up in flames. Literally.
We visited it in… Heavyweights(1995)
Facilities and services:A very American institution, which does not seem to have permeated deep, in Spain is that of the so-called “slimming camps”. I.e., those to which are intended for the kids with extra pounds. Written in an Judd Apatow(embarrassing mess) almost debutante, heavyweights took this specialty to its last consequences facing the kiddies to the machinations of Ben Stiller, diets Tycoon willing to be to deprive them of their pleats.
We visited it in… Revolting skirts(1980)
Facilities and services:After American Pie and its solo flute in charge of Alyson Hannigan, the Little Wolf camp, it seems an eden of the civility and good manners.But in 1980, when the public visited him for the first time, his reputation was that of a bilge of vices. Why? Maybe because it is the stage of the bet between a pija girl(Tatum O’Neal) and a girl of working class smoking as a Carter (Kristy McNichol) to see which of the two you may lose before virgo with one of the monitors. Which, to make matters worse, is none other than Matt Dillon.
Camp Crystal Lake
We visit it in… the saga Friday 13 (1980-2009)
Facilities and services:The Crystal Lake camp has a unjustified bad reputation. And all for a small security flaw. We refer to the tragic death of the small Jason Voorhees,who drowned in the Lake that gives it its name while monitors consumed alcohol and practiced premarital sex. However, all of this is slander: know of a good source that Jason is still alive and kicking, dedicated to a variety of hockey that is played with a machete instead of with a stick.To make matters worse, as we discovered in the 2009remake , his place of residence shelters a huge plantation of Mary.
We visited it in… The Simpsons(series, 1989 -…)
And facilities: “rustic construction, but solid and powerful”, as its anthem, Krusty camp is the best example that a celebrity can give your name to anything whenever they put a truck of money outside the door. Of course, everything has its good side: after the abuse of Jimbo and Kearney monitors and knitting fake Gucci wallets, boys (as Bart Simpson) charge a tremendous sense of revolt, personal autonomy by.
We visited it in… When autumn comes(1993)
Facilities and services:Not everything in the film summer camps will be fun and joy.Without going any further, the Tamakwa is about to close, and if it appears in this list is by its reopening at the hands of a group of former residents puretas (including Alan Arkin, Diane Lane and a Sam Raimi cameo mode) who want to commemorate the his younger years. Come on, that this is a dramedy from those that Hollywood was so fond in the 1990s.
The camp of Piranha
Visited it.. obviously, Piranha (1978)
Facilities and services:We have another of those centres of bad (unjustified) reputation, due to ones killed anything. Because, if we think about it, the cool of Joe Dante and Roger Corman presented to its younger viewers the ideal holiday resort. In this place there are ample opportunities to make cafre, many FRY cannibals that eat monitors… And lots of curvy girls with (or without) bikini.Can an adolescent request more?
Kids on Fire
We visited it in… Jesus Camp(2006)
Facilities and services:Conceived and directed by a Christian fundamentalist (Becky Fischer) in order to “indoctrinate the children of us as Muslim fundamentalists indoctrinated his people”, this camp is the scene of one of the most terrifying movies ever filmed. In it we see how the kids fall down in worship with a cutout of George w. Bush, suffering from spasms during religious ceremonies and periodically hear sermons which warns them that Harry Potter is a spawn of Satan, among other niceties. What you most fear gives everything? That camp Kids on Fire there is thus really: Jesus Camp was nominated for an Oscar for best documentary in 2007.
The premiere of the exceptional ‘Drive’ back into fashion films about cars. A good story always improves with four wheels and a competent director and great allies.

- The 24 Hours of Le Mans (Le Mans 1971): Great McQueen film that pays tribute to one of the greatest circuits motorsport history: Le Mans. The actor filled circuit cameras, some in the Porsche that it flew in the race and with which achieved a creditable 8th place finish, and showed from inside the difficulty of being a professional racing driver.
- The Duel (Duel, 1971): Telefilm a great aesthetic brilliance and a thrilling narrative pulse cinema map stood at a very young Steven Spielberg who was beginning to show its enormous talent. The film tells the relentless pursuit road which undergoes a driver by a mysterious trucker.

- C’était un Rendezvous (Ferrari in Paris, 1976): Short film shot by Claude Lelouch in the mid-seventies where in less than 10 minutes an almost suicidal pilot through the streets of Paris aboard a Ferrari 275 GTB with the best band may sound: the sound of its powerful motor. The film, shot at 5:30 in the morning meant that the author of it ended up in jail for reckless driving.Although it can not be considered a movie like this, your realism makes him an exceptional document. We show the short to complete.
- Mad Max (1979): In a post-nuclear future, where gasoline is the real treasure, Max Rockatansky (Mel Gibson), a police officer in charge of monitoring a highway, facing a group of wild desert for Australian roads. Shocking images where violence is a character.

- Senna Movie (2010): Documentary triumphant at the Sundance Film Festival, which runs through the life of legendary Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna (1960-1994), from his debut season in 1984 until his untimely death a decade later in the San Marino Grand Prix. It features unreleased material drawn largely from the archives of Formula 1.
- Drive (2011): Ryan Gosling, actor fashionable turns to gold everything he touches is a movie stunt driver by day and a driver to leak at night. The excellent film is a grim exercise in style that results in an almost perfect work.

A Freelance actor, as for any other job, show your experience and training. However you should know that this is something different and only contains information relating to interpretation. The rest of past work (eg, shopkeeper or your years of experience in the law firm) is not relevant.
If you do not want me to go straight to the trash, it is very important that you should be clear how this type of resumes.
In order, your CV should contain:
The first is your name clearly visible. Would you like to you know by the stage name or real? Whatever it is, always put the same to avoid confusion.
Then write your contact information, ie your phone number and your email . Do not include your home address, because it is not necessary to when they want to contact you.
If you have also added the name of your representative and your contact information. Do not forget that some agencies do you put the logo .
It also includes your personal web and makes it clear when you send your CV here can see more material such as photos or your videobook.
Finally, mention if you belong to the Union of Actors.
Just below, enter your height , weight and color of your hair and eyes . In the event that you ask for more details or want to add you, include them, but these 4 points are fundamental.
Plan your experience easy categories to distinguish a glance: film, TV, theater, advertising, dubbing, etc., always putting first the most relevant place or related to the type of job you should attend your CV.
If you prefer, or do not have much experience, you can join several sections (eg film and television, to separate good from theater). Remember that the shorts are included in the category of cinema.
Experience within each category should be sorted from newest to oldest , always indicating the year (or range of years) in which the work was performed and interpreted the character or class (protagonist, secondary or cast) , and the company or producer for which you worked.
If you have little experience you can follow our advice I have no experience, what I put on my resumes for dudes?
If, however, your experience is very broad leaves only the most important , or what fits more to the type of work you are looking for. A casting directors are not impressed both your workload and the quality of it. If you need to know more ask.
Write here all your training relating to the interpretation, either with a coach in any professional school or theater classes you gave at school.
The last step is to include all skills that can add to your interpretation. The most common are singing, some dancing discipline, play an instrument, learn driving, riding, skating, extreme sports and speaking other languages fluently or mother tongue. It is also convenient to put the accents you master (eg, Andalusian, Galician …). The variety you see is wide.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Did you include age?
The minors YES should include.
For the rest, indeed biological age only requires the agency to your record, and is irrelevant to your CV.However, it is optional to put the age range than you appear on stage (eg 25-35 years).
Age is not usually included anyway because the photos show you just the way you are, and always send the CV. Some believe yes and who thinks not. It’s your decision.
Do I include photo?
Like age, no reviews for all tastes. Our view is that do include it. Normally you send your other pictures but you may print your resume separately, and if you can identify the better, better.
Yes, it is a photo that foreground, no entire body.
Especially when you have little experience, it is very tempting to invent content, whether of experience, training or skills.
What if they ask for any experience you lived in the shooting or what fellow coincidiste in the cast? What if they ask you to teach them the material?
No fill by fill or start inventing anything because our little world is very small and can turn against you. If you discover a casting director quite possibly will never call you.
DESIGN AND STYLE
Once you have all the important information you have to shape it. Please note that your resume should occupy if possible one page , and never more than two.
You must carefully design so that everything looks clear and clean . Make sure the font is legible and professional sources used.
No apelmaces all because saturate the reader. Leave spaces between sections to give small breaths.
Check carefully that your information and your agency is correct. You’d be surprised how many people are left without jobs by having a silly error in your data.
Take care of the details! Check your resume and turn it back check. Check your spelling, punctuation, spacing, margins, EVERYTHING. Show it to acquaintances to confirm that everything is correct and give you their opinion.
IMPORTANT STEP ONE LAST
When you are happy with the end result turns your CV to PDF format .

Also, if your computer has spellcheck many words they will be underlined. That’s why you need to convert, so that it is as you you’ve created.

John Wick (Keanu Reeves) was a hired murderer throughout his life until he fell in love with a woman and left the circuit of the mafia. Five years later, even despondent over the death of his wife, John lives alone with the dog she left him, surrounded by memories, hope and grief of the truncated love. Then it happens that young Josef Tarasov (Juliet Kakish), son of one of his former employers, commits the imprudence of raiding his house, steal his prized 1969 Mustang and kill the dog. The latter is sufficient for John Wick back to the slopes the crime. The news that the old ruthless murderer is behind Josef expands the underworld and reckless father, Viggo Tarasov (Michael Nyqvist), deploys its resources to try to stop what you know inevitable because John Wick will stop at nothing . So hire the criminal Perkins (Adrianne Palicki) and the sniper Marcus (Willem Dafoe), along with an army of bodyguards to accompany his idiot son. No need to tell more, but this happens in the first few minutes. In the rest of the footage there are 74 dead (70 of John Wick Online). That is, one every 90 seconds. It can not demand much a story with such intense concern Thanatos, although in some passages which the film is to wash your face -more sustanciosa- raising the proposition that a violent man can not escape his past life , a subject that is closer to the western that the gangster genre. What is striking is that this is the first film directed by Chad Stahelski, a man of 46 years who is skilled in all kinds of martial arts, weapons and acrobatics, and having its fame as stuntman. One of the high points of your resume is precisely the dubbing of Keanu Reeves in the stunts of the three Matrix. To meet the project John Wick, Stahelski was helping another stuntman great career, David Leitch, not shown in the credits. There are a few specialists of the same type have managed to break the barrier of this semianónimo job and become actors with their own configuration. But in the stratified Hollywood industry, spending double director represents a Copernican leap, a phenomenon outside the norm, very rare occurrence. The stuntman is the carnal matter of vicarious life: a figure that doubles a person who has bend, bend reality. What appears is not so, and all efforts are focused on that something is, but only seems. In this universe, be it apparently did not exist. Only there it seems.Therefore it is not necessary to ask whether the morale of John Wick is revenge, violence, resilience or individualism. Not at all: it is the moral of the stuntman. The good news is that the jump in Hollywood Stahelski shows that there is still a social mobility.

Northside Patios Brisbane Ideas
Do not limit yourself while choosing a patio design. This is your own backyard and it can be designed in a way that you love. Here are some of things you need to consider when choosing patio designs:
- Your own requirements and needs
- The kind of activities you want to do in the patio, your interests and your hobbies
- Consider it as a haven for reflecting your personality
- Consider the number of people you will have in this area to enable you organize the seating accordingly.
When it comes to designs and themes, here are some ideas you can pick from:
Music Lovers’ Haven
This is the perfect idea for avid music lovers who want to create space where they can enjoy music. If you love playing any kind of musical instruments, such as a piano, flute or a guitar, you can include them in your patio. If you are interested in a specific music genre, then you may incorporate elements of that style into your patio. For instance, if you like reggae music, add reggae music to your décor. Decorate the place by adding posters of your favorite reggae musicians. You may even install a powerful speaker system to enable you listen to your favorite music as you relax.
If you want to give your patio some artistic touch then this is the perfect idea for you. Ensure the area is sheltered to protect it against extreme weather conditions. The walls can be decorated with your favorite paintings. Add multi-storied racks for holding your paintbrushes, colors, thinners, oils, sculpting tools, pencils or any other equipment you may require for your artwork. Ensure the seating space is large enough to accommodate everyone who would just want to sit in this artistic place and watch you work. You can include your favorite form of art, be it;
This design allows you to relax in a cool tropical place, surrounded with verdant surroundings where cool breeze with natural fragrances flows around you. Look for some comfortable chairs and a nice table, which are good for outdoors. You can plant all kinds of trees around the patio and also include some potted varieties. If you want a livelier look, add a unique feature, such as a pond or a freshwater fountain. Add some fragrant flowers around the patio area as well.
This is the best design for ultimate foodies who want to display their deep passion for food. Turn your patio area into a food and drink parlor, fully equipped with a BBQ grill and a refrigerator. If your budget and space allow, you can take things to another level by having your own bar in the patio, equipped with drink mixers, liquor bottles, cocktail flavors and some nice glasses. You may consider including a snack bar, equipped with chips, dips and condiments. So if you always think indoors is the best place to entertain your friends while enjoying some chilled beverages and delicious grilled delicacies, you are completely wrong. You can turn your patio into a fully-fledged food and drink parlor.
In conclusion, a patio is not just a concrete pavement created to consume your backyard space. Select patio designs that reflect your personality. Designing a patio should be considered as a creative activity, rather than a boring and time-consuming task. Building a good patio requires a lot of time, effort and some creativity to make it a nice place, so it is better left to professionals. Look for a reputable builder with a track record of delivering high quality work.
According to a British study, watch a scary movie for at least 90 minutes, can eliminate about 200 calories, the same as is done running for half an hour.
Celebrating Halloween night already come, would be a perfect occasion for a scary movie marathon.The grace of the tapes of this kind lies in its ability to produce adrenaline in viewers and make them burn calories.Yes, as you read, watch movies such active metabolism.
That’s what postulates the expert in cell metabolism and physiology at the University of Westminster (UK), Richard Mackenzie , who examined 10 volunteers and measured their heart rate, oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production, finding that the number of calories consumed in a ninety-minute movie increases more than 30 percent, as it burns running for half an hour.
The study published in the British newspaper The Telegraph , concludes that this burning calories is due tophysiological changes that result from therelease of adrenaline (because of fear).This increases the stress of the body, reduces appetite and increases the activity of the basal metabolism .
Mackenzie conducted the analysis with several horror films, according to the levels of pulse and increased heart rate,examining their effects. “As blood is pumped around the body harder, a surge ofadrenaline is experiencing This occurs especially during brief moments of stress,that decrease appetite and increase the basal metabolism, burning calories, “said the researcher.
The film led burning calories is the film The Shining a psychological horror film starring Jack Nicholson and directed by Stanley Kubrick, which premiered in 1980.
Here are the rankings of the top 10 horror movies to burn calories:
The Maid (la lana) (2009) is a Chilean film that portrays intimate way a reality that people live both ends of Chile: the rich and the poor. The rich have “nanas” and poor working as “nana”. The “Nana” is for the Chilean maid, a woman from maid service toronto working making toilet, babysitting, cooking and ironing in the wealthier upper class homes.
The film is about a nanny ( Catalina Saavedra ) who devotes his life to the family she works for and all that is able to defend something they believe is theirs. When they bring to other nannies to help with housework, she feels threatened and invaded and does everything possible to keep that place he feels he has earned in the heart of that family. The character of nana is a well-armed character, with all its complexities, fears, conflicts, loves, desires and interests, with all the good and bad that has a real person, so a very lovable character becomes, and that despite making life miserable for their new “rivals” finally one’s compassion and understand their fears.
For many, it is very iconic of Chilean culture, but La nana has been around the world and after more than three years since its release, still circling theaters in Europe, the US and South America, as now with the premiere in Argentina. It is also the first Chilean film premiered at Netflix online streaming site American films. A great achievement for the Chilean film so mean, besides having won many awards around the world at various festivals in which he participated.
Directed by Sebastián Silva , the film tells a very personal story that led him to have his brother as an actor, with friends in production and in major film roles and in the house where he grew up. It is an intimate film of a family history, but also very Chile on an issue as is the work of a domestic worker (there are other countries that also have a person who works at home but only in Chile told “Nana”) .
La nana recreates a reality intimate, quiet and in its simplicity achieved something very valuable way: transferring emotions. It does not stay in the macro, but the characters and the script are so well constructed that the film has social and cultural scope.
In these films so intimate, the performances are very important, since everything is on the characters.Have given the lead to Catalina Saavedra is not surprising, if we refer to popular culture in Chile, where she was Nana on more than one occasion on television. But not only that, but because it is one of the most talented actresses of Chile. Even the “Village Voice” gave the award for best actress in 2009, earning a master like Meryl Streep. In addition to the performance of Saavedra, the cast also involved the great actress Claudia Celedon , Alejandro Goic and Andrea García-Huidobro , among others.
La nana showcases the best that has given the Chilean cinema in recent times, thanks to the talent ofSilva and actors, as well as tell a simple story but with many nuances, details, and the strength and talent to highlight within the contemporary Latin American cinema.
The lists are often capricious and this is no exception. What follows is not a list of “deemed” best movies of haunted houses, even the “considered” more important or influential; reflects favoritism to his editor: those that for certain reasons more have captivated me, stimulated and made me enjoy.There will be readers who’re missed this or that title, while others might be indignant to see any of those I have included. The purpose of this text (biased notice for the second time) is simply to share my passion for the genre and make a pooling step: those not familiar with it will find here a great starting point; on the contrary, those who are so perhaps discover some title that has gone unnoticed until now.Finally, also the writer is open (and willing) to recommendations.
The second point I wanted to make concerns the selection process: often the genre at hand is mixed with ghost stories or possessions. It is not easy to establish a uniform criterion for clearing all the material and clean it of impurities. In other words confuse categories. I have tried to include those securities in the architectural space plays an important role and is treated as a character. With some exceptions (a mental hospital, a hotel and a convent) , the action takes place within the walls of a house. I have discarded the castles to prevent and limit hodgepodge selection, and also because I think the houses, those beautiful and imposing Victorian building, colonial, neo, that populate the novels and films, are their direct descendants. Not having the new continent a medieval tradition to draw on, American fiction changed the towers in the attic, the basement dungeon and moat by a lake. It is also true that the supernatural is democratized, and it is no longer necessary live in a castle or belong to a noble family to be haunted by the ghost of turn.
Another major obstacle is the mix of genres. For decades the stories of haunted houses on celluloid were linked to comedy. First at the earliest, almost prehistoric productions, such as are George Mélièsand Second Chomón , and later in the Universal and other smaller studies over the decades of 30 and 40 and to a lesser extent, 50: one long trail of titles featuring comedians fashion of the time, namely,Bob Hope, Abbott and Costello and even mule Francis (Francis in the haunted house) . Another famous mixture has the second ingredient mystery, are what has often been called the horror noir : stories in which the murders and, more characteristic of the detective genre, the detective frames whodunnit is enclosed spaces were developed, almost always mansions; The Cat and the Canary and The Old Dark House are two classic examples. The supernatural element was finally moved to the background, reduced most cases a simple and prosaic rational explanation; say that in the end, the light of reason clearing the shadows of mystery.
We could say that pure terror, understanding this at that which originates in the supernatural, is not fully installed in the subgenus (ignoring the mansion of Horrors 1959 and Intruders, 1944) until the early sixties with two seminal works: Suspense and The Haunted House . These two films of the genre lay the foundation for the next two decades. Then shall the Ente and above all, Poltergeist and the end of the ladder , managers take over and shore, almost permanently until today, its grammar and conventions, as we know (and we anticipate in each new viewing) today. In between, another decisive title in 70: The infernal mansion.
As data, noting that fourteen of the listed titles are based on literary texts. There are two films of the 20s, one 30, one 50, three of the 60, seven of the 70, five of the 80, two of the 90, one from 2000 and one from the last decade. Finally, the list is supplemented by a second relationship, lighter, titles to consider, listed by decades. In total, the number stands at forty-five. You will enjoy it.
The Cat and the Canary (1927)
My favorite of the Universal film with The Man Who Laughs (1928) and The Wolfman (1941). Although not the first, may justly be considered the mother of all haunted house films. A complete catalog of visuals and narrative suspense generators that they will become classics while recurrent and imitated it unfolds. Paul Leni applied masterfully molds of German Expressionism, which is so important for the development of genre cinema in Hollywood for decades. The result is a captivating, hypnotic work that pays the possibilities of architecture (long corridors, dark corners, curtains in the wind …) and lighting effects to create a genuinely terrifying atmosphere. A film that does not age.
Le chute of mason Usher (1928, Jean Epstein)
Jean Epstein and Luis Buñuel pooled their talents to create this wonder (it seems that the Aragonese was not too happy with the way the text was adapted Poe) . I would define La chute de la Usher mason like a cross between Beauty and the Beast (1946)Vampyr (1932): first, exhibits lyricism, formal beauty, a sense of magic and attention to objects (so dear to surrealism) Cocteau’s work; on the other, the entire film is imbued with that unreal, dreamlike, property title Dreyer atmosphere. If someone told me that La chute de la Usher mason is the most beautiful horror film history not stay choice but to give the reason.
El fantasma del convento (1934)
I hope that out of the blue monograph on the Mexican fantaterror that places the order to our brothers across the pond in the place they deserve in the history of horror gift (and film to dry). Until that day comes, the most stubborn have to go digging here and there and proclaim from the rooftops the cinematic gems of those latitudes they come out to meet us; such is the case of The Scapular (1968),Aunt Alexandra (1979) or the title in hand. While in most of world cinematography terror had barely been outlined, Juan Bustillo Oro , considered the father of the genre in his country, directs and writes four main headings: Two monks (1934), The Mystery of the pale face (1935 ), Nostradamus (1937) and The Phantom of the convent , a masterpiece that combines the stylistic features of German Expressionism with the most sordid and solemn Gothic (much more faithful to its literary roots subsequent demonstrations in the sixties in Italy, England, America or Mexico) . Top of Mexican cinema masterpiece of horror. What more can you say?
The Turn of the Screw (1959)
John Frankenheimer worked fifteen years in television before directing earn its reputation as formidable thrillers Evil Plan (1966) and The Manchurian Candidate (1962). One of his last works was for the small screen version of The Turn of the Screw (of which many speak but almost nobody saw) , coming on two years of Clayton and Capote and does not detract at all from it. The film has a acertadísima address Frankenheimer, an outstanding interpretation of Ingrid Bergman and some tense moments and truly memorable horror. A gem.
Little can be said and to add on this title, which appears without exception in all lists of the best horror movies ever. Jack Clayton in direction and Truman Capote in the adaptation of the novel byHenry James forge a tape exceptional style direct descendant Val Lewton and the mirror in which all films of the genre takes looking for half a century. None of his imitators / plagiadoras has gotten close to their level of excellence. Suspense remains one of those rare examples where the drama and terror are linked with such skill that not only do not interfere, but coming together to create something beyond. The definitive history of ghosts. My favorite movie ever terror.
The Haunted House (1963)
Along with Thriller , The Haunted House lays the foundation necessary for rejuvenation and renewal of the genre that so far, glorious exceptions aside, shamelessly had mated with comedy, black genre. In the film, veteran director Robert Wise takes advantage of the architecture of Sell my house fast Leeds and plays with contrasts of light and shadow to create unrepeatable moments of tension. For posterity, the scene of the hand that appears when the protagonist sleeps, imitated later by Hideo Nakata in Dark Water .Magnificent.
A quiet place in the country (1968)
ElioPetri tape is one of the most atypical and least known of the listed here. It’s a great horror film that start with hints of cinema “arthouse” but soon finds its way to the heart of horror without hesitation same. Petri address is striking and remarkable, the director puts the eye in the most unexpected places, like the protagonist spy and we made partaker of his insanity. Fantasy, spooky, presents the viewer in a new light, or at least unusual, as it moves away from the atmosphere of Italian Gothic, in free fall at the end of the decade, and the traditional ghost stories. Franco Nero plays a former tenant obsessed with a abanodana village painter. The actor had played a character touched by madness with certain similarities two years before the great Il terzo occhio (1966) (which, as curiosisdad, will point out that anticipates no little of Buio Omega Joe D’Amato). A posto tranquillo di campagna is among the best of the Italian fantaterror.
Harry Kümel reached something of a cult director status thanks to the red on the lips (1971), a stylized and decadent lesbian film vampirism in the line of Vampyres (1974) by José Ramón Larraz ;however, his great contribution to European fantaterror is definitely Malpertuis . Although adaptation of the literary text as the tape is rather short (almost impossible to move the complex structure of the novel by Jean Ray) , the work of Kümel entity has sufficient quality to be among the best productions of the genre shot in the old continent. Be warned: this is not a story of haunted houses in the old way, Malpertuis is much more than an old mansion, it nestles an incredible secret. Different and beautiful than most.
The stone tape (1972)
Make way for my beloved Nigel Kneale , creator of the series Quatermass and one of the best writers in the fantasy genre in history. Initially, it was thought to integrate The stone tape an episode of the series Dead of night , but finally the BBC decided to issue it as a single program. The film has all the ingredients that have become famous Kneale, in fact, is one of his best work: great dialogues, steady pace, interesting characters, anxiety and suspense over terror, wise dosing information and a conception highly sophisticated (but never pedantic) genre. Actually, Kneale was a writer of talent, genius sometimes, and The stone tape is one of the best, most original and unusual contributions to the subgenre of house enchanted. Bright.
Don’t be afraid of the dark (1973)
The 70 had a handful of horror films made for the small screen. Don’t be afraid of the dark is one of the most memorable with Duel and also one of the best. In principle, it is assigned to the subgenus at hand, but then drift into something stranger, almost film series B. well built, well run and better proportioned. Subtle and sharp (and timeless) portrait of a woman married to an executive promising future, embracing the role of submissive housewife and helpful home to please her husband. Great horror film that has little to do with the forgettable remake produced by Guillermo del Toro .
The Legend of Hell House (1973)
I like to think the ideal complement to the haunted house . Based on the novel by Richard Matheson , the premise is very similar, however, The Legend of Hell House darkest reaches a point and left the tape Wise . The film explodes and becomes strong in the bedroom scenes: the resource, endlessly imitated since then, the sheet that slipped moved by an invisible hand while sleeping protagonist is here. It is, as I say, a more aggressive, violent and claustrophobic version of the same story (as is the novel) , with a greater commitment to the explicit horror and magnificent and spectacular finale: a kind of exorcism face to face with the origin of evil; another success to be emulated by his successors. Note:considered the first film include “explicit” sex with a ghost.
Burnt Offerings (1976)
The legendary Dan Curtis brought to the screen the novel by Robert Marasco . Oliver Reed and Karen Black star in this story about a haunted house that introduces an interesting concept in the subgenus.Tape not widely known but not negligible and should be rightfully on the list thanks to the good work of its main actors and the wise and experienced hand of Dan Curtis. To discover.
If a Japanese cult film par excellence in this blessed genre that is definitely Hausu , a work that literally have to see to believe. As unusual as Mars, the second over Nobuhiko Obayashi (famous, among other things, to adapt Aula adrift of Kazuo Umezu) does blow up any prejudice that the viewer might have on horror films.It is hard to imagine a film progresses much with so little; to be able to surprise, to offer, at every moment, at every level, a discovery and a surprise, and incidentally boot a couple of laughs as it does Hausu. There is something in each plane served on a silver platter to memory, the fun and visual delight. Hausu leaves small extravagances Takashi Miike , the Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl and other nonsense psychotronic exported by the Japanese decade. Inimitable . Unrepeatable. Unforgivable.
Full Circle (1977)
Another covered. Also known as The haunting of Julia , the Anglo-Canadian production is among the best. Thanks to Rosemary’s Baby(1969) and Blind Terror (1971), Mia Farrow was already a familiar face in the genre when he starred. No longer is a ghost story old-fashioned, very well run, the slower times but never stagnant, in which the tension grows slowly until the final climax, that is beautiful and devastating than most. Do not forget the special focus of the film, which over time has become a classic.
The Shining (1980)
Another set lists. The film quintessential haunted houses. The most savaged by critics of few rolled his head. The face of Jack Nicholson peeking through the door is one of the icons of film history. Despite a couple of pictures of questionable taste, Kubrick gives us some of the most beautiful, powerful and better shot of gender, near the aesthetic orgasm scenes: the tricycle scrolling through the corridors of the hotel, meetings in the restaurant, Jack lost in the labyrinth under the snow … Strange in his pace, great at times in the dialogues, this is The Movie.
The Entity (1981)
Few films can boast of producing the impact of the Ente . Contemporary Poltergeist , shares many elements with it; However, the Ente is a little less showy and “popcorn” (lights, music, plaintive spirits …) that the tape produced by Spielberg , and far more crude and violent in their way of presenting the facts. You could say it is an adult version of Poltergeist . In a way, it’s a cross between haunted houses and torture porn. The Ente cultivates a kind of deep and abiding fear: that arises from the concern, uncertainty and feeling of utter helplessness; that makes us know in the hands of our enemy when, where and how he wants. Another classic: cruel traumatic unforgettable.
At the end of the stairs (1980)
Peter Medak , who has spent most of his career in television, will be primarily remembered for this film, another classic from the list.Well directed, written and performed, the tape has some moments that are departing the collective imagination of horror, and then have been copied over and over again: the wheelchair, the ball downstairs, the appearance in the tub … Moreover, it is one of the canonical examples of how to mix the horror thriller; between startle and shock, the protagonist is forced to investigate the events in the house several years ago to find out what lurking ghost haunting the house (in the end, like everyone, “only” wants revenge ) . clasicazo.
Another fixed. A family classic. Ideal for desktop. Surprising change of registration, almost radical, its director, Tobe Hooper , considering coming to make a name after shooting Texas Chainsaw Massacre .Actually not so surprising if we think Spielberg is behind all the lights, the buenismo, family values … Many of narrative and visual resources Poltergeist can be traced without difficulty four years earlier inEncounters of the Third Kind . However, it is perhaps the film’s most famous haunted houses and influential history: the kitchen scene, near the beginning; the snowman in the bedroom; the figure of the medium; the concept of lost souls who “seek the light” ; settlement under the house; access to another world through the cabinet; The image of the girl watching TV … They already become cliché.It keeps the magic despite the years.
The woman in black (1989)
We return to the TV, we return to Knigel Kneale , this time adapting the novel by Susan Hill . A classic ghost story set in an isolated house where nobody around wants to hear about. The remake with Harry Potter was not bad at all, but it was too gimmicky compared with Kneale style. Another jewel in the crown: classical structure, in crescendo; subtle terror that explodes with a final scene of those who are not forgotten. I never tire of praising. Great movie.
A list clogged. A dossier Warren brought to the screen two decades before The Conjuring . Television Production budget, surprisingly effective, with truly intense moments. From his tone, comes close to wrecking the body, with which you can mount a great double bill. Highly recommended.
It is rather a mockumentary, a supposed live program broadcast from a haunted house on Halloween night. The program of the BBC made a strong impact in their day across the nation, so much so that he was banned for ten years. Ghostwatch anticipates Draft Blair Witch and Paranormal activity in many of his narrative findings. Technically flawless, written with intelligence and emotionally powerful: you have to see it.
Session 9 (2001)
An atypical approach to the subgenus held by Brad Anderson . The house is replaced here by an abandoned psychiatric hospital. Paused, ambiguous, beautifully set, haunting and subtle than most. Not for everyone, but damn good. Probably Session 9 Anderson is the best to date.
Lovely Molly (2011)
The latest film by Eduardo Sánchez divided the fans: a mediocrity for some, one of the best titles of the year that was for others. I am among the latter. Certainly the film is not as entertaining or as round as other recent titles Wan factory, but the truth is we do not need. It is much more risky and complex in its structure and exhibits generators of more personal terror, poetic and subtle mechanisms.Ambiguous, intelligent, ungrateful …

A Beautiful Mind (Schizophrenia)
Based on the life of John F. Nash, suffering from schizophrenia, who received the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1994 as a film co-author of game theory and participated in the World Congress of Psychiatry held in Madrid in 1996, featuring a presentation about of his experience as a patient.
The film chronicles the arrival of Nash at Princeton University in 1947 and the onset of symptoms of schizophrenia in the late 50s, so the film reflects the different stages and states through which he spent as a patient to achieve an acceptable level of recovery.
About 1 million Mexicans suffer from schizophrenia . Each year 250,000 people are hospitalized for mental disorders in psychiatric hospitals the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) where 5 out of 10 patients are Kamagra gegen erektile Disfunktion disease that currently affects 1 in every 100 people worldwide.
Bad Habits (Eating Disorders)
While it is a Mexican film, the story raises a reflection of a world in which some want to be able to eat while other waste or hate this act. The film describes how anorexia and bulimia diseases ceased to be exclusive social class or international gateways , to become a situation that equally affects a nun, to a mother, that to a girl.
There is a great difference in the use of the term anorexia nervosa. People commonly associate the two as the same. Although both terms denote loss of appetite of a person; The term anorexia denotes the physical inability to detect hunger.

Farewell to vegas (Alcoholism)
A classic of film showing the end of alcoholism. A man who loses his job and goes to Las Vegas wearing out its latest economic resources on alcohol. What makes this film a painful testimony to those who have suffered from this disease.
In the film the classic scenes of one drink as a sign of sophistication and status are present. Leaving Las Vegas is not a film against the consumption of alcohol, is a heartbreaking and painful experience, where you can observe the reactions of withdrawal, mood changes a person suffering from alcoholism and a tendency to self-destruction.
There is much evidence in reality to diagnose alcoholism, usually in the form of standardized questionnaires that the patient can do on their own or as an interview conducted by the doctor. Since alcoholics often deny their problem or lie about it, the tests are designed to elicit responses related to the problems associated with drinking, rather than the amount of liquor consumed or specific drinking habits.
The fastest test takes just a minute; test called CAGE, an acronym for the following questions: (C) (Cut) attempts to reduce drinking; (A) (Annoyance) discomfort with criticism about drinking; (G) (Guilt) guilt about drinking; and (E) (Eye-opener) use of alcohol in the morning, literally “eye opener”.
There are many films that one way or another have linked world cinema with photography. Some tell stories based directly on a single photo that has had great historical significance, others simply tell fictional stories about photographers.
Today we bring Engadget picture a selection of five films on photography and photographers can not miss . Some are not very current, but we think that due to the great influence they have had on the world of photography and its contents are very interesting.
A famous Londoner photographer takes a series of pictures of a couple in the park. They discover taking photographs and at the insistence of the girl to recover the negative, the photographer begins to suspect that these photographs are hiding something. After expand and enlarge copies discovers an unrecognizable form the bushes. A film that raises us how what appears in a photograph can be used as evidence of the truth.
Although this is a film of the sixties in which we must not expect to find striking images, special effects or anything that dominates today’s cinema, is a film with a strong conceptual content, which also shows very interesting scenes how was London in the sixties. You can not miss the home and studio where the photographer and the bravado with which treats living models.

For fourteen years he has been taking this photograph and forming a large collection of scenes that occur daily in the same place, same time. The film tells the hitoria how this tobacconist got his camera, classical Canon AE-1
A curious story that can inspire us to start a project of this type. An interesting scene in the movie is where the tobacconist shows some of the photographs that has taken over the years. Actually these photos were taken and not about a simple cinematic history.

The Public Eye
The Great Benzyni, a photojournalist in New York, character based on Weegee (Arthur Felling), is the best photojournalist murder scenes of that time in the Big Apple. He has no qualms about modifying elements in the scene before the police arrive, even cops ask him put his hat to the dead (the photo of a dead hat worth a few dollars more than if you leave your hat).
Obsessed with achieving the publication of his work and personal approach used to both police and the mafia is involved in a story between mobsters in which, of course, take the opportunity to take your best shots.

Portrait of an obsession
It tells the personal story of the American photographer Diane Arbus, whose portraits managed to startle the American society of the sixties. He lives in his apartment in New York with Allan Arbus, her husband and fashion photographer, beside which also works well.

Since the original title reads, “An imaginary portait of Diane Arbus” (An imaginary portrait of Diane Arbus).

The Bang Bang Club
Many of us, at the name of Bang Bang Club we come to mind four reporters of war (Kevin Carter, Greg Marinovich, Ken Oosterbroek and Joao Silva) who have given us some of the photos on the cruel stories have lived and continue to pervade Africa. This film tells the real experiences of these four reporters in his last days in South Africa.
Although sometimes the facts pass too quickly in the film, the story of this group of friends who decide to form this unique club of war reporters is so interesting and known, that the director can afford that speed in the storytelling.
It seems that finally we can not enjoy this movie in Spanish cinemas. If we want to see it translated into Spanish will be a matter of waiting to see if they take some version in DVD .
Director: Steven Silver

Hotel Corinthia is four blocks from the Palace of Westminster , the seat of the British Parliament. When from the top of the tower, the great bell gives eleven o’clock, it starts to be reserved for the production of flat HBO a game of thrones but no seats in the cast of It rotates in couples waiting room where a table full of journalists from around the world. They take their seats and talk with us for 20 minutes, and it will be until the Big Ben mark midday.It’s raining outside and there are reports of flooding across the country. It seems a sign that winter is coming.
Liam Cunningham and Carice van Houten are the first to arrive. They play two antagonistic characters in the series, the disturbingMelisandre , the “Red Witch”, and reflective Davos Seaworth , the advisor to King Stannis . Let’s be clear: none of them tell us who occupy the Iron Throne, even may offer details of the first chapter of the fourth season so stringent are the producing reserves. However, they will share their certainties learned after three years delving into their roles.
“What do you think that the bad guys always win in ‘Game of Thrones’” asked. “To say whether they are good or bad depends on your point of view,” says Cunningham . “For example, can you believe that Jaime Lannister is a despicable, capable of throwing a guy through a window character. However, it is important to understand the motivations for their actions. I think the best thing about this series is the complexity of the characters “he says.
One of the most appealing aspects of the drama is the complexity of the female characters. “Here, women do not stay in their homes or in their castles caring for their babies,” says van Houten , the only Dutch cast. ” They are strong and incredibly dangerous , “saidCunningham , then ventured a joke: “As much as in real life.”
Another aspect that excites actors is the unpredictability of the scripts for the series. “It’s exciting. We know that we will receive text until the end. It’s like working on a soap opera,” says the actress. Therefore, they have fun throwing assumptions about his future in the series: “We might be lovers,” she said, to which he replies, “Bu ene, we got so bad in the series, we could already be considered a marriage ” .
For the Dutch artist, it’s funny that people feel they know her character more than herself. And maybe it’s true, as far published five books of the “Song of Ice and Fire” preserves unopened on her nightstand saga. “Sometimes I browse looking for my name, but it’s hard. I can not pre-empt what will happen,” he says.
What can we expect from this fourth season? Cunningham dare to advance that, unlike previous installments, with huge climaxes as the death of the Lord of Winterfell , the Battle of the Blackwater and the terrible red wedding, this time more intense moments have spread throughout the season. Do you have a message in the series? The Scottish actor is clear: “‘Game of Thrones’ shows that absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Therefore, says he does not dream of sitting on the Iron Throne: “It must be very uncomfortable, so full of knives Terrible.”.
Viewers hate Jaime Lannister . Reasons are plenty: sleeps with his sister, Queen Cersei (Lena Headey ) and has three children with her.To protect the secret of his incestuous romance, pushed Bran Stark(Isaac Hempstead Wright ) from the window of a tower. So when they cut the right hand at the end of the third season, viewers applauded the punishment. However, the long road beside the warrior Brienne ofTarth seems to have humanized.
Facing reporters, actors Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and GwendolineChristie boast excellent chemistry. Is there sexual tension between their characters ?, asks a colleague. They look funny. “I think our relationship is much talk about relationships in general, not just sex,” says the Danish actor. “They are two big differences enemies suddenly connect at a deep level, achieving mutual respect and trust.”
If the first season Jaime Lannister he looked like Prince Charming “Shrek “after prisoner without hand wielding the sword months, the change is radical:” People change, “says Coster-Waldau . “The first thing we see is Jaime having sex with his sister, and then throws the baby out the window. We have no information, only see the action. By knowing the reasons why the characters do what they do have the complete picture” he explains.
“One thing I love about this series is the honesty with which shows the complexity of people. No one can know how it will behave in the coming hours, how it will react. You can love your wife, but then fights with her for something stupid. That is what happens with the characters for ‘Game of Thrones’. They connect through many emotional reasons, “he adds.
To Gwendoline Christie , their relationship will deepen , “We have seen Brienne of Tarth . at first a bit naive, very noble ideals, noting the cynicism of Jaime She will help you expand your mind when he faces the reality for survive. And Jaime Lannister learn from her sense of morality, “he says.
“After a while, the family Lannister becomes joint. Joffreyes now king, and there are lots of family tension. I returned having lost his hand and back to be commander of the Royal Guard. My father has high expectations for me, my brother Tyrion needs much help and my sister Cersei needs, well, a bit of my love (laughs). He must find his place. You must deal with the fact that it is not what it was before. It was a great experience to record this season “says Coster-Waldau .
The fourth season of “Game of Thrones” premieres today at 8 pm on HBO.
Do not worry about me, Hazel ‘m fine. I’ll find a way to hang out and bother you for long. “
I’m Trapped between two moods after seeing under the same star , I feel like I mourn, run to the arms abrazadoramente know me warm, or give me a good hot water bath so drunk to my heart.
Curiosity about the fate or future lies ahead Life is often thought to ourselves, and of course after seeing the film we wonder what we do “Today” for us or for us to have a desired destination.
Weighing the possibility (for those who believe that the target is signed) that we can change that can happen is that thousands of readers have concluded their own future, that which is uncertain and unknown, what we fear and desolation, it could become more if we work within us into something so amazing and so well said of “The Best Investment in Life, Our Inside”.
Hazel and Gus give hope to thousands of teens and adults who have dared to see the film at the cinema or read the book by jhon Green The fault in our stars pdf download …
“The only person I wanted to talk about the fate of August us is inside me … “
For me lately whatsapp is a faster option to communicate with the outside world, I imagine that many teens try more than one way for these conversations, but the point here is to understand that Life is much more than a well-written book or exciting and heartbreaking true story, so I hope to try to imagine a near future sharing laughs and experiences that not your best option for your interior.

Is it possible for blockbusters such as “Star Wars” and “Lord of the Rings” show red in your finances? In this context, this issue has also been the subject of analysis and debate in an industry where raw ego and extravagance on the part of writers, producers, actors and directors.
Thus was made known the famous ” Accounting for Hollywood “, this according to an article developed by Dennis McDougal in 1989 for” Los Angeles Times “, refers to the Irenas bas services methods used by the industry of film, video and television for more profits based on inflated, reduce or eliminate the accounting result of the project, reducing the amount the company must pay to actors, directors and writers in royalties or other arrangements on profit sharing, because they are based in net profit.
This action can take several forms. One is that participants in the production are linked to an affiliate studio to perform an activity and the parent entity, ie, the film studio withdraw money from the subsidiary does not in terms of profits, but in the form of charges for certain “services” that are counted as expenses or losses.
In Hollywood about 5% of movies officially show a net profit, and the “losers” films include blockbusters such as “Rain Man,” “Forrest Gump,” “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” and “Batman” , films that had large amounts of monetary collection both in box office as rent and sell videos.
In another publication of “Los Angeles Times”, developed in 1990 by Dennis McDougal also called “Murphy Movie Made Millions But Stayed in Red, Studio Ledgers Say” says controversial statements by actor and comedian Eddie Murphy, who notes that only a fool would accept the net on his contract.
For experts like John D. MacDonald, the really creative in these industries people are accountants. A large study has more than half the profit, after setting breakeven around three times the cost, taking 25% of revenue and overhead costs, and 35% of revenue and distribution charge, plus rental rates.
Unlike Small Business, In that sense there are three main factors in Hollywood bookkeeping services chatswood to reduce the result of a film, this lies everything that has to do with the production overhead amounting to 15%, the cost of production close to 30% of what receive from the cinema and advertising expenses amounting to 10%.
All this shows why so many big name actors insist on “gross points” a percentage of gross income instead of net profit participation. This practice reduces the likelihood that a project is not attractive for real creative industry.
Emblematic cases that have affected the industry
A case of writer Winston Groom is the right of his novel Forrest Gump, the contract included a share of the profits. However due to the “Accounting Hollywood,” the commercial success of the film becomes a net loss without the author has received profit as entered in the book “Clarifying Accountability: An Ethical Theory Framework,” Melvin Dubnick. Because of this controversy to the study, the author refused to sell the rights of the script for the sequel to the novel, which included a meeting with Tom Hanks Gump while filming the movie of your life.
According to an article developed in St. Louis University Law Journal, entitled, “The Origins of Accountability: Everything I Know About the Sovereign’s Immunity, I Learned from King Henry III”, Stan Lee, co-creator of Spider-Man character, introduced demand after the producers of the film Spider-Man (2002), was not given a share of the gross income. Another case is that of former Attorney Jim Garrison, who sued Warner Bros. for their share of profits from the movie “JFK,” which called his book was based on the book “On the trail of the murderers.”
Also, the writer Art Buchwald received compensation after suing Paramount. The court cataloged the immoral actions of the study, noting that it was impossible to believe that a movie starring Eddie Murphy in 1988, called “A lost Prince in New York”, USA only raise $ 350 million without the author perceived a benefit.
Other major productions have been under observation by the justice, the case of Peter Jackson, director of “The Lord of the Rings” and his studio Wingnut Films, who filed a lawsuit against New Line Cinema for discrepancies in earnings. Also, according to Lucasfilm, “Return of the Jedi”, despite having earned $ 475 million at the box office compared to a budget of $ 32.5 million, “has never generated profits.”

1. Archiculture (đá marble)
