What is the best way to spend a Christmas holiday evening? Right, going to the cinema :-) I just came back home and I am completely blown away... If you paid attention to the name of this posting you can guess what movie I was watching: Avatar. I have to say that I have seen the trailer some time ago already, and I thought it looked nice, but I was not prepared at all for how the movie really looks like. In my humble opinion it is the best movie of the year and for sure as groundbreaking for the movie industry as Star Wars has been 30 years ago! (Please Mr. Blizzard, before you continue working on the World of Warcraft movie, go to the cinema and spend some weeks watching Avatar...)
I love the universe that James Cameron created for this one, I love the story, even though it has some chlichés (that don't disturb me at all) and there are some predictable things in the plot (which also didn't disturb me a single bit), and I am still absolutely drooling for the looks, I am so looking forward to the making of from this one ;-)
Well, to cut all my babbling, if you are into SciFi/Fantasy, then go and enjoy Avatar, and experience the future of cinema.

Same procedure as every year

How does a typical Christmas afternoon look like for you? Here it is something like this: The whole family gathers and there is some great food, after that there is some more great food and finally we have a great dinner :-) You think that sounds like a lot of food? Yup, it IS a lot of food, and right now I am just looking forward to rest after fighting my way though all that food, but before I still wanted to wish all of you a Merry Christmas :-)

Still bashing the radio...

...but this time for a different reason ;-) I am not the biggest fan of radio anway, they just don't really play my kind of music (at least not in Germany), but around this time of the year it really gets unbearable here... As every year season starts on the 1st of December the latest, and since then we are bombed with the same damn Christmas songs day in day out! Of course there has to be "Last Christmas" from Wham, there has to be "Power of Love" from Franky goes to Hollywood, there of course has to be White Christmas from Sinatra, and all the other HORRIBLE Christmas songs from Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey and whoever else recorded one so far... The only way to escape is to only turn on the radio for the news, and then immediately switch back to my iPod, I just wonder if this torture is something international in the moment or if this is limited to German radio exclusively... But at least there is hope... only 20 days to go ;-)
