What is this blog all about?

The main purpose of this blog is to give an overview of the things I do, in my everyday life, in order to improve my English. Since I am a very lazy person, I mostly read, and watch movies, and do things which make it possible for me to improve my vocabulary, my grammar and my accent without getting bored... So this blog is going to be about the books I read, the movies I watch, and some other things which I find relevant (or not)...

I hope you'll like it! Don't hesitate to leave comments if you have any suggestions concerning what I should write about!!

Coculine, quand tu pars en voyage, Coculine, dans les virages y'a toujours Coculine...

Yeah, reader, as you might have guessed, I went to the movies again yesterday, and saw "Cloverfield".

Anyway. Cloverfield is a very brave movie, to be watched only by people who are not prone to car-sickness. Indeed, the main idea of the movie, in case you did not know (which I doubt, because everybody's heard about Cloverfield), is that what you're watching the result of what a guy filmed during a whole night. Night during which Godzilla attacked New York. So basically, put a camera, Godzilla, three people, the American armed forces and some blood in a salad spinner, and make it go round and round as fast as you can. Then, take out the camera, pick out the corpses, and Ta-DAAA!! You're JJ Abrams!!

Well, apart from the fact I (really) had to stay very focused and keep my head back in order not to puke on my neighbour (whose technique against pukiness was to breathe extremely slowly and loudly. Like that better than getting puked on myself, but honestly, I whish he had found something else...), I think it was a pretty good movie. Not amazingly good, or anything, as I said, it was very difficult to watch, what with the camera moving all the time... but the characters were pretty good, you end up liking them, and they did not take too many stupid decisions, just so that the scenario would be more interesting.

The only stupid decision they took, actually, was to cling to the bloody camera, instead of running for their lives and having real conversations with one another. But then again, if they had dropped the ting (which has outstanding batteries, honestly... Amazing... It can light a whole tunnel, fall down, be half eaten by a monster, and still keep running for about 12 hours... I need to figure out what model that was...), there would have been no movie...

Anyway. I'm going to go have dinner now, and enjoy the stableness of my everyday life... If you feel like going to see Cloverfield, reader, go ahead, it's interesting...
