Birthday Cinemathon 2
7 years ago was the last time I celebrated one of my Birthdays with friends. At that time a good friend of mine came up with the idea of a Cinemathon, spending the whole day in the cinema watching different movies. We had a great time and watched the following movies:
Now that all my friends turned 30 and had a big party, I thought it time to do something as well. And so the idea of the second edition of the Birthday Cinemathon was born.
- An Inconvenient Truth (very interesting)
- Pan's Labyrinth (fantastic!)
- Smoking Aces (a huge let down, especially right after Pan's labyrinth)
- Ghost Rider (interesting but not great)
This time we watched the following movies:
After almost 10 hours in the cinemas the second event ended with a beer in a nearby pub. Compared to the first time, we were very happy with the film selection. All of them were worth seeing.
A very good Action-Thriller that kept us on our seats wondering how it was going to end. Definite recommendation!
- The Grand Budapest Hotel
A fantastically funny movie about loyalty and friendship with a fantastic cast (Willem Dafoe is simply brilliant!) and wonderful pictures. A must see!
- The Wolf of Wall Street
Even though it ran for 3 hours, this was a very entertaining movie about the rise and fall of Jordan Belfort, a stock broker on Wall Street. Recommendation: We liked it, but it's not for everyone, since it shows some very questionable behavior.
- Stormberg - Der Film
Stromberg is a German TV Series based on the UK hit The Office. After five seasons a crowd funding project enabled the making of the first Stromberg movie.
We had no idea what to expect from this movie, since we never saw the series before, but I chose it based on a recommendation from a co-worker and because it fit the schedule.
We were pleasantly surprised. It was very funny and entertaining. Recommendation: If you are an office worker, go and see it.
Thanks to everyone who joined me for this special day! I'm sure it won't be the last time :)
