App of the day – Kinotap

Here is one app that might interest cinema lovers in Baku – Kinotap. It gathers information from all the movie theaters around Baku, thus instead of checking separate apps like Park Cinema or 28 Cinema and comparing the viewing times, you can check this information  in one app. One thing that is lacking in Kinotap is online purchase, so after you found out the time and movie theater it’s playing in,  you then still have to go to separate app, if you’d like to buy tickets online.

Here’s a quick walk-through the app:

Here is the main view of the app with information on all movies going in the theaters right now.

Moulin Rouge!

Moulin Rouge! is one of the classic movies you can watch over and over and every time you find something new and even though you know the plot, you can’t help but empathize with the characters.

First time I saw the movie I was a teenager. Re-watching it now brought a total different emotions and understanding of a beautiful tragic love story.

It’s one of the most colorful movies I’ve seen! I love the costumes, decorations, and, of course, the music! I was amazed by beautiful vocals of Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor.

Buz Luhrmann, who also created Romeo + Juliet and The Great Gatsby, knows how to create a genuine theatrical performance in a movie!

The music choice is also very interesting. It consists of cover versions of different songs, such as Madonna’s “Material Girl”, David Bowie’s “Nature boy”, El tango de Roxanne and many others.

Moulin Rouge! was nomonimated 8 times for Oscars at the 74th Academy Awards, winning two (Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design) and 3 Golden Globe Award winner.

Memorable quotes:

  1. Toulouse-Lautrec: The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.
  2. Christian: Days turned into weeks. Weeks turned into months. And one not so very special day, I went to my typewriter,I sat down and I wrote our story. A story about a time. A story about a place. A story about the people. But above all things, a story about love. A love that will live forever. The end.
  3. Christian: Love is a many splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love.
  4. Satine: The French are glad to die for love. They delight in fighting duels. But I prefer a man who lives, and gives expensive jewels.
  5. The Unconscious Argentinean: We have a dance in the brothels of Buenos Aires. It tells the story of the prostitute and a man who falls in love with her. First, there is desire. Then, passion. Then, suspicion. Jealousy. Anger. Betrayal. When love is for the highest bidder, there can be no trust. Without trust, there can be no love. Jealousy, yes, jealousy will drive you mad.
  6. Zidler: The show must go on, Satine. We’re creatures of the underworld. We can’t afford to love.

The Rebound movie

Another cute movie I watched today. The story is about a woman in 40s going thru a divorce and meeting a young guy and falling in love with him. Catherine Zeta Jones is one of the most beautiful women on Earth in my opinion and Justin Bartha, her partner in the movie is very cute and has gorgeous blue eyes. Sharing with you many pictures from the movie this time – they all are just so adorable. And here is the trailer:

And I love the message this movie delivers: If the two are meant to be together, they will end up together, no matter how long it takes, even if it takes some time to be separate from each other, even if it takes 5 years… Believe in love!

The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

ghosts_of_girlfriends_past_xlg

Another movie worth watching is “The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past”. Funny, touching and romantic. I recommend watching to all the nice guys who are trying to be jerks to be successful with women 🙂 For guys who are already jerks, it’s already too late, haha=)

Mathew McConaughey is funny and cute as always. Jennifer Garner is charming and Michael Douglas is perfect…

And here are some funny quotes from the movie:

Uncle Wayne: So here’s a couple of tips. When you first meet a girl you give her two compliments above the neck. Yeah, tell her she’s got nice lips, nice eyes, nice hair… she’s intelligent, her moral ethics, whatever crap comes to your mind. Then just when she begins to thinks that you’re another – you know – vanilla nice guy that she can tool around with all night without getting naked…

[hits his hand on bar]

Uncle Wayne: you *insult* her! Flip the power dynamic and your let her know that you’re here to play.

 

Vonda Volkom: Spooning is nice.

Connor Mead: Yeah. But not as nice as forking.

 

“The power of all relationships lies in whoever cares less.”

“I think you only really get over somebody, when you find somebody else that you’d care about more.”

‘You’ve got to risk love…It doesn’t mean that you’re never going to get hurt, but I can guarantee you this. Any pain that you feel will never ever compare to the regret that comes from walking away from love. And from someones who’s felt a lot of both, trust me, regret beats pain everyday of the week and twice on Sunday.’
