So, the 86th Academy Awards were held yesterday and Jennifer Lawrence tripped. Again. She didn’t even make it to the red carpet before she made her stumble.

Allow me to take you step by step through her throughly embarrassing, yet adorable mishap.

1. The wave

She’s the cutest! Moving on, poor Leonardo DiCaprio didn’t get an Oscar this year either. This man has recently become the joke of the internet. Here is his reaction at the exact moment at the Oscars, up until he found that he didn’t win anything.

First he sees his name up on screen, and is super super excited.

Yay me, might actually win something this year.

It’s so sad it’s funny. I feel like such a horrible person, but I can’t help but laugh at all the jokes everywhere. Here are my top 3!

I’m sure you all heard about the tragic death of Fast & Furious hunky actor and star, Paul Walker, on Saturday. He was 40. Frankly, this was a shock to me and I’m sure to all of his loyal fans and will undoubtedly leave a big gap in one of the world’s most successful movie franchises. Apparently, he died after a Porsche Carrera GT 2005 crashed into a light standard and burst in flames near Los Angeles (see below), he was the passenger. 

I can’t really imagine how horrific the accident must have been since the Porsche has turned in a complete wreck, seriously scary. Now who would have ever imagined that his death would be caused by a supercar since he was all about furious and death defying racings in F&F movies. There’s no such a car that can save us from certain sudden death if we’re not always careful, million of things can go wrong at any moment of time. Farewell Paul. Paul-Walker-Dead-2871392

عدنا لكم مع مواضيعنا الاسبوعية المتخصصة في افضل واشوق الافلام السيمنائية بعد انقطاع لفترة. حسنا سجب ان اعترف انني لم اذهب الى السينما لفترة والسبب في ذلك انني اصبحت اشاهد اغلب الافلام في المنزل لوجود Home Theater System بعد ان تطرح الافلام على Blu-Ray. حسن لن اطيل الحديث عليكم, شاهدت في عطلة نهاية هذا الاسبوع مجموعة من الافلام النى كنت انتظرها, لنرى ما لدينا:ا

اول افلام هذا الاسبوع هو الجزء الثاني من فلم الشخصيات الخارقة Marvel والذي اقتبست فكرته من آلهة الرعد والبرق Thor: The Dark World بعد نجاح الجزء الاول. تدور احداث هذا الجزء عن عدو خطير لا أحد يستطيع مواجهة حتى “أودين” و”أسكارد” (المملكة التى ينتمي اليها ثور”، ويتوجب على “ثور” أن يستعد لأخطر رحلة في حياتة، التي سوف تلم شمله مع جين فوستر وإجباره للتضحية بكل شيء لإنقاذ الجميع. ما اعجبني بالفلم انه مليئ بالاكشن والاثارة منذ البداية ولا توجد به مشاهد تدعوا للملل كما هو الحال مع افلام اخرى. وكذلك اعجبي طريقة الاخراج وربط الاحداث مع الجزء السابق وكذلك فلم The Avengers. الفلم حاصل حتى الان على تقييم 7.7 في موقع IMDB وانصخ بمشاهدته على شاشة IMAX.ا

الفلم الثاني لهذا الاسبوع هو Captain Phillips المقبسعن قصة حقيقية للكابتن فيليبس ولإختطاف للسفينة الأمريكية الاباما من قبل قراصنة صوماليون ، وهو الإختطاف الأول لسفينة أمريكية منذ 200 عام. بالواقع الفلم طويل جدا وبالبداية لم تجذبني قصة وحبكة الفلم بعد ان شاهدت الاعلان ولكن ما دام به نجمي المفضل “توم هانكس” وافقت ان اشاهده.ا

Our friend Abdulaziz Alkandari has shared with us his latest production “Kuwait Destroyed City” in which he shows post-apocalyptic Kuwait City using special effects. It kinds of remind me of the 2007 Sci-Fi horror film I Am Legend though the 3D effects need to be enhanced for more reality.

Software: After Effect CS6, 3D Max, Cinema 4D

Music: Two Steps From Hell – Calamity

Update: We found that the idea, shots, audio of video above were taken from a previous video produced by Mubarak Almubarak. Therefore, we would like to deeply apologize to Mr. Mubarak Almubarak and to ensure to our readers that we totally had no idea the idea/content was stolen because we never support copyright infringement and stealing by any means.

20130506_204706 (Medium)I still can’t imagine how fast the days of Ramadan have passed and that only 4 days separate us from Eid al Fitr. Now speaking of Eid, I was checking to see what movies will be released by both Cinescape and Grand Hamra and seems there are several great flicks. So let’s see what we got:

Smurfs 2: I still remember watching the first part two years ago. I read on IMDB that in this sequel, out little blue buddies team up with their human friends to rescue Smurfette, who has been kidnapped by Gargamel since she knows a secret spell that can turn the evil sorcerers newest creation – creatures called the Naughties – into real Smurfs. I hope this part is more fun.

Red 2: This one combines comedy, action, and drama starring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones among several others. I read the story revolves about a retired black-ops CIA agent who reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. I usually lower my expectations for movies with many stars.

Despicable Me 2: Candidly, I haven’t seen the first part so I cannot really pass my opinion but according to friends it was fun to see especially for family. Apparently, in part 2 the story begins with “Gru” being recruited by the Anti-Villain league to help deal with a powerful new super criminal. I like that it starring Steve Carell and Ken Jeong.

Pacific Rim: I just saw the trailer and it looks fun. I guess those who love the ScI-Fi, fantasy, or adventure movie genres will like this one. Story-wise; a war among mankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.

The Lone Ranger: Johnny Depp is back in this action, adventure, and western film produced by Walt Disney. It’s about a native American warrior who recounts the untold tales that transformed a man, John Reid, into a legend of justice. I saw the trailer and it looks kinda fun.

I felt so sentimental when I saw them knocking down Granada cinema the other day, this cinema holds numerous lovely memories that extend long back to the 80s and 90s but we all know the rule of thumb in Kuwait, everything old must go, that is. I remember enjoying many cowboy movies in that cinema and entry was for around 250 fils, it was 100 fils before that.

dances-with-wolvesI read Cinescape decision to demolish the cinema is based on the concept that people prefer smaller cinemas that are located inside shopping malls nowadays. Personally I disagree with that, separate cinema buildings are easier to access and reach than those in busy malls, plus they can serve as a theater for plays and shows. Anyhow, I just wanted to say farewell Grenada cinema and I hope they don’t build yet another shopping mall in the same location.

 بعد غيابها ما يقارب العامين عن الشاشة تعود الينا الإعلامية “المثيرة للجدل” حليمة بولند التى من الواضح انها خسرت الكثير من الوزن ببرنامج جديد ومن نوع خاص بالتعاون مع قناتي روتانا وlbc تحت عنوان “حليمة بوند 006″ والذي على ما يبدوا مستوحى (ان صحة القول) من سلسلة افلام جيمس بوند 007 البوليسية الشهيرة. حسبما فهمت البرنامج سيضم مجموعة من الفقرات المنوعة في طرح المسابقات وسيبث ما بين الواحدة والثانية من بعد منتصف الليل يوميا.ا

ا

اتسائل ما هو الأجر الذي يتقاضاه الاعلاميين في تقديم مثل هذه البرامج؟ حسنا انتمنا ان يكون البرناج بالمستوى المطلوب رغم ان الفكرة كما يبدوا copy لرواية انكليزية واعتقد انه لم يتم شراء الحقوق الفكرية. السؤال هنا: هل ستشاهدون البرنامج؟ا
