Over at the amazing filmexperience there is a wonderful series going on called 'Hit me with your best shot' where you get to choose your single favorite shot from the assigned movie and write the reason why you chose it.

Well for my first ever post participating I'm in a luck as even with the amazing amount of stunning shots in Under the Skin there is one that was truly the best one there.

Awesome Fisti from a Fistful of Films passed this to me and my assignment is to get from Jason Statham to Michael Haneke in 6 steps or less, as part of Nostra's blogathon

Here are the rules-  get ready to test your knowledge of actors/movies and directors with the six degrees of separation blogathon. You will get two names of either actors/actresses/directors or movies and what you will have to do is make a link between them in a maximum of six steps.

    Under the Skin

    Let me preface this by saying that I did like the movie a lot. Unfortunately, since I am familiar with book material there's going to be a lot of 'oh, what could have been!' talk here.

    It's been a year, more or less, since I read Michel Faber's terrific novel Under the Skin. Since I don't have much time to read fiction, I don't spend my time with books that often. The main reason I usually do is because there is a movie in the works based on the novel and it sounds amazing. So what happens is I read the book, I love it and then I see the movie. And it's not the right way to go. At all.

  • Firelight, oh my God!
  • I made a gifset (obviously) and those aren't even all the moments when I thought I was going to die while watching this. In a good way.
  • Here are some of my thoughts about the movie. Sophie Marceau seriously sounded like she was simultaneously dying and blacking out and seeing God...while...you know.

    Visual Parallels: Melancholia + Sleeping Beauty

    By Sati. Wednesday, July 2, 2014 , , 38 Comments
    Two movies that are perhaps not well known but they remain some of the most unique films I've seen. Both quite difficult and similar - not just when it comes to the disturbed heroine but also the way we are shown her life on screen.

  •  Queen Elizabeth paid a visit to the set of Game of Thrones in Northern Ireland. She met the cast - Maisie, Sophie, Kit, Rose, Conleth. Lena was also there as were the showrunners proving they will let just about anyone meet her.
  • First of all, let's just look at Kit's face and laugh.

    About Lady Stoneheart and why excluding her from Game of Thrones would be the biggest mistake on the show yet.

    Yesterday a certain interview appeared online that shook and outraged most of the book readers of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. For yet another time this month those of us who eagerly await to see Lady Stoneheart on Game of Thrones were disappointed or - possibly - lied to. I initially wrote about this in my draft for tomorrow's Rambling Friday but I decided this issue needs a separate article. Because hopefully when we keep asking and keep shouting we will finally be heard.
