Fairytales: Part II

Some exciting news hit me today: there will be even more fairytale movies in 2013!

The movie I’m talking about is “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters“. That in itself does not call for pleasant anticipation, though Peter Stormare and Famke Janssen will be in it.

What thrills me is that Tommy Wirkola is directing:

The man who brought us one of the most inventive zombie movies of the last years, “Dead Snow“.



Him taking on the tale of the siblings who took on the big bad witch can’t be bad!

He kept his promise

Years ago I’ve watched “Love actually” and fell in love with it. That’s why upon watching “the Walking Dead” I already knew main character Rick Grimes’ actor, Andrew Lincoln.

Now Jenny added a nice piece of knews:

Lonely Guy from “Love actually” kept his promise, to love Keira Knightley’s Juliet for always:



Eek! I for one do not see that much of a difference between the last picture above and this one:



Someone get that girl a sandwich, already.

Among friends

All I see is rotten bodies with a greenish hue. Dripping eyeballs and flaking skin.

Their sounds are scary, crunching bones mingled with moaning that would be heartbreaking, came it not from an undead, no longer a person.

They are shuffling, some with missing limbs, all of them dirty and probably stinking like the sixth circle of hell.

Now they have smelled something, they shift their bodies and cock their heads, sniffing, searching. They are hungry, closing in.




I’m pulling my blanket up, on the verge of being afraid.

But these are my old friends, surrounding me.

And not only the undead, though they have shared my life for quite some time now.

I mean the others. My husband, to my left, holding my hand. My newest friend to my right, leaning in to my old friend, her husband-to-be, squeaking at the Walkers when I am.

Last our glassblower to the front, protector of the fire.


I can’t put my finger on it, but something about the combination of Undead, old friends and various snacks makes my heart heavy. In a good way.
