San Diego Comic-Con 2014

Today is officially the fourth day of this years’ Comic-Con. Yes, I am officially four days late to the party.

What is Comic-Con about? It is basically a convention for geeks aka “THE SUPER BOWL for NERDS” [as Stephen Amell kindly said]. Every year this convention takes place in San Diego, California, and you can buy tickets to go and take part of this great community. You can cosplay as your favorite character and go to different panels and see your favorite actors and interact with them, etc.

I haven’t kept track of this years’ Comic-Con like I do every year. However, I am fangirling so much over every picture that comes up on my dashboard. I honestly cannot remember how long it has been since I have fangirled so much! I mean, all the feelings that are running through me when I see all these amazing actors from movies and tv shows that I love.

Until now, the lucky people that attended Comic-Con had the chance to see the trailers for Mockingjay, the new season of Arrow, a sneak peak at the new season of Game of Thrones and they also met the casts of Game of Thrones, The Avengers, Teen Wolf, Arrow and many more.

So now, I am going to put a whole lot of pictures from what happened at Comic-Con so far. Just so you know, they are not in a specific order and I will provide you with the links if you need/want them. Also, these pictures are not mine!!!

The Avengers Age of Ultron and the amazing Robert Downey Jr.

And here is a funny article about Comic-Con.

These are some of the stars that made an appearance at Comic-Con 2014. I promised myself that once I get a job and can be fully responsible of my actions, I will go to Comic-Con. I am not ashamed of saying that I am a fangirl and that I love movies and tv shows more than a normal person. It is one of those life goals that I plan to achieve and cross off of my list.

Hope you liked this random post, and let me know if you are excited about Comic-Con and if you want to go or have already been.

Until next time, stay geeky,

Lexi xoxoxox!

The Academy Awards 2014

As any person feeling under the weather, that has a day off of school and that day happens to be right before the Oscars, I hugged the opportunity of seeing the famous award show, LIVE from the comfort of my bedroom.

Usually, on a school night, I wouldn’t be allowed to watch any kind of awards LIVE because of the huge time difference between where I live and Hollywood, but I got my folks permission to watch them at the ridiculous our of 2AM until 6AM because I am really ill at the moment so I have the Monday off of school.
I am gradually writing this post as the show goes on. I really don’t want to miss anything that popped out to me during the show. So, I am writing this intro before the shows even started, because I want to have this post posted as soon as I can have it written.

On this beautiful Sunday, I drove my mom crazy with everything that means the Oscars. I just couldn’t shut up about how excited I was to see them LIVE and all that jazz.

A usual question that would follow is “Who do you hope will win?”. Well obviously, my favorite actor that I wish to  FINALLY get his well deserved Oscar is none other than Leo DiCaprio. Surprised? I didn’t think so. I really think that Leo is a favorite of the audience for many years, and I think that we all agree that his performance in The Wolf of Wall Street was maybe one of his best yet, but even so I feel like Matthew McConaughey is a favorite in this category.

My expectations for tonight are quite simple: Ellen to be her usual funny self and for Leo to get that damn Oscar. And yep, that’s pretty much it…

From here on I will document everything that I found interesting, beautiful, annoying and exciting during the show :D. Before I forget to mention it, I am “documenting” everything in my time table and everything I say is according to the streams I have found, so please don’t be too confused, lol! So here we go…

  • 12.05 AM:  The Red Carpet LIVE stream works but nothing interesting is to see.
  • 12.20AM: People are shouting but I am not sure why…also no one interesting appeared on the carpet yet.
  • 12.26AM: The MTV and VH1 stream finally has someone talking on the stream because it became a bit boring.
  • 12.28AM: Benedict Cumberbatch, Jennifer Lawrence and The Wolf of Wall Street are mentioned, talking about excitement…
  • 12.38AM: Have 3 live streams opened, still nothing going on
  • 12.46AM: Just saw an interview with the chef that made the food for the awards-am very hungry!
  • 01.08AM: Getting angry and tired of this…guess all the stars decided to arrive at the last minute; Viola Davis looks amazing!
  • 01.10AM: Cristin Milioti[the first wife of Leo in The Wolf of Wall Street] arrives on the RC, I love her dress!!!!
  • 01.14AM: Mads Mikkelsen arrives on the RC, surprised to see him…looks good-think he had a nice…dinner 😉
  • 01.16AM: Portia de Rossi looks amazing, great dress choice! bet she is proud of Ellen 🙂
  • 01.33AM: Kristen Bell also looks amazing, love her dress!
  • 01.39AM: Kellan Lutz arrives on the RC, he looks YUM! *.* -wearing a suit made out of recycled items
  • 01.42AM: Amy Adams- blue simple dress, very form fitting! loved it!
  • 01.44AM: Anna Kendrick, very chic dress, would have worked better without the slit IMHO.
  • 01.49AM: The bets are lost for those who said Lupita will wear purple, she chose a beautiful sky blue dress. My favorite of all up until now.
  • 01.54AM: Heard the paparazzi saying “Okay, okay, move along, we’ve seen you, go on already”, to a guy that was posing for the red carpet. More than rude…what do you expect from them?
  • 01.59AM: Joseph Gordon Levitt looks his usual great self!
  • 02.05AM: Drooling all over the screen because Jared Leto just arrived and he looks amazing!
  • 02.08AM: Harrison Ford arrived, he looks good for his age!
  • 02.11AM: Benedict Cumberbatch just won my heart…again! Loved his appearance. Hair looks *.*;as always.
  • 02.13AM: Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell just stepped on the carped…Goldie, you are a queen, but that dress…no..
  • 02.16AM: Jessica Biel looks FLAWLESS! love the dress choice!
  • 02.21AM: Michael Fassbander is a heartthrob as usual.
  • 02.22AM: Christoph Waltz, yes my friend, good fashion choice as usual.
  • 02.24AM: Matthew McConaughey arrives on the RC and looks delicious in his white tux!
  • 02.26AM: Charlize Theron, as per usual, breaks hearts with a gorgeous appearance!
  • 02.28AM: Chris Hemsworth is definitely drool worthy! As for his wife…sorry, but I’d fire that image consultant…
  • 02.29AM: Jennifer Lawrence makes her appearance, and not very late after that trips over her own feet on the red carpet. Looks okay in the Dior dress which looks similar to  Amy Adams’, but J Law definitely had better choices in the past.
  • 02.39AM: Spotted Leo DiCaprio and he looks amazing *.*.
  • 02.40AM: Anne Hathaway looks like she’s not aging, wouldn’t have chosen that dress though..
  • 02.43AM: Emma Watson looks GORGEOUS! I can’t  believe I didn’t notice how much I missed seeing her!
  • 02.45AM: All my streams crashed and I want to cry because I cannot find others.
  • 02.50AM: Seen on twitter that Lady Gaga made an appearance in a pink Versace gown…not crazy about it and not sure why she was invited…

After this fun and too long Red Carpet experience, I couldn’t  find any live stream for the actual award show, so I had to go to sleep. I will definitely watch them tomorrow night when the cut and edited version is aired on HBO.

Benedict Cumberbatch was a sweetheart and I couldn’t stop swooning when I listened to his interview. I am pretty sure that he will be a very big actor of his generation and will get his own Academy Awards statue.

A thing that I found repulsive was the way Pharell Williams attended the RC. I have been thought since I’ve been little that shorts are not an appropriate formal wear. Of course, there are many exceptions in Hollywood, but I still found his attire a bit offensive, or better said…inappropriate for such an important event.

All in all, I loved seeing all my favorite stars going down the Red Carpet and seeing interviews and so on. Though I wish The Academy Awards would have had thought about the people who do not live on the American continent and given us at least one live stream. I was pretty disappointed because I stayed up so late to watch this show and couldn’t because people are sometimes careless about situations like this.

When I woke up I was greatly disappointed to find out that Leo did not get his well deserved statuette. Even though I have to admit that Matthew McConaughey played an amazing role and deserved this award, I have to keep my previous opinion that Leo deserved it more…I guess everything is okay because the award went to another actor that I love and respect. Don’t worry Leo, maybe next time 😉 .

Hope you enjoyed my veeeeeeeeery long ramble about the Oscars, and I hope I din’t bore you…too much. Maybe I’ll do a short review of the actual award show as well. We’ll see.

Until next time, lots of hugs,

Lexi xxxxxxxx!

Sherlock Season 3

bbc-sherlock-season-3-the-empty-hearseIt was 2 AM, the other night, when one of my friends gave me a link to watch “Sherlock Season 3 Episode 1- The Empty Hearse”. And at the moment I thought that I will watch it when I’d wake up, but I realized the anticipation was too big, so at 2 AM I was pressing the play button and holding my breath.

After seeing the new Sherlock episode I decided to write an honest review for it and I thought it was a good idea to split it in two. A part for the people who haven’t seen it yet, and the other for the ones who couldn’t wait anymore.

*NON SPOILER PART*

The moment it started I had to hold my breath because I was going to scream and my neighbors wouldn’t thank me for it at 3 am. It was absolutely brilliant!!Every moment of it was much more than I ever expected! Whoever said that this two-year wait was for out greater good, was right!

I am glad that the producers took their time and filmed a masterpiece! I think that they really managed to bring out the best out of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. They played marvelously and as always made me not only to laugh at their sarcasm, but also cry when the moment was opportune.

I have been a true emotional roller coaster throughout the whole episode. And I am pretty sure I had a mini panic attack at the beginning.

Many people say that they don’t know why they felt like this was the best episode in the series. And in a way I agree, but in another I think that it was the best episode yet because of the anticipation! And also because it was amazing of course! :))

I don’t have anything else to add so this won’t spoil anything for you, just that the show was worth the wait and you should definitely watch it. But if you want to be spoiled, continue reading LOL.

If you are done, well, thank you for reading, and I’ll see you next time 🙂 .

*SPOILER PART*

Soooo for this part, I took some notes last night while watching the episode, so I will try to write down my exact emotions of certain parts that touched me in a way or another the most.

Firstly, there was the beginning, obviously..It introduced us directly into the plot, no moment for me to catch my breath or anything. It started with Sherlock jumping and breaking the window and kissing Molly. WELL, let me tell you that that scene messed up with my head soooo much!!!!!! I actually felt my heart beat out of my chest, and I wanted to scream so bad but I really couldn’t, lol!

HERE AND HERE ARE THE “COAT FLIP RUFFLE HAIR KISS GIFS” !! [which are amaaaaaziiinnngg!!]

HERE IS A FAN MADE LITTLE CLIP!

And then I felt like I’ve just been slapped when I saw that it only happened in Anderson’s imagination! I was in tears and wanted to punch the screen, but that’s what I get for not mentally preparing myself for this episode! Honestly, that was very rude of the directors!

A character that made me laugh after wanting to stop the episode and shoot the screen, was Mrs. Hudson. Jesus, she was extra hilarious in this episode!!! When she slams the little biscuit plate and the cups in front of John, and giving him this totally ironic line…man that was precious!! And than after John tells her that he moved on and Mrs. Hudson asks “So, what is his name?” “his name” “HIS NAME“HIS NAME”. That was the last drop until I burst out laughing.

And Sherlock making fun of John’s mustache was epic!! I mean  he really deserved those punches…I would have gotten mad as well, but it was hilarious at the same time!!!!!!

Then another thing that got me was a theory that Sharon Rooney [playing main character Rae in My Mad Fat Diary] came up with! She thought that Sherlock was only messing with John and threw a puppet from the top of the building and that after that Moriarty and Sherlock  kissed… KISSED!!! I am not sure but I think that the directors are actually reading fanfictions or something…I think they really tried to mess us up!

When Sherlock asked Molly to be his “assistant” because John “wasn’t in the picture anymore” I totally lost it! I was angry with Sherlock for replacing John- obviously I knew he had something planned- and I was happy for Molly…until we find out she is fucking engaged!!!!!!!!!! Really Molly, really? His parting kiss was sooo sweet that all my insides melted! Aw maaan, I don’t know how he- Benedict Cumberbatch- does it but he breaks my heart even when he does a sweet thing.

I loved actually seeing Sherlock’s parents, in the other show about Sherlock, they never show his parents,and rarely his brother.Kinda irrelevant, but oh well…Oh and BTW, I watch another tv series about Sherlock Holmes, so I can fill up the time between this show’s loooong breaks. And I have to tell you that, that show has NOTHING on Sherlock.

Close to the end, Sherlock explaines how he made it out alive, he does it on camera in front of Anderson. Which I don’t find odd, BUT I was kind of creeped out about the reaction Anderson had.. He’s really gone mad, but is he actually right? Did Sherlock lie to him? I hope not!

A thing that infuriated me to the stars and back was when Sherlock made fun of John on the Underground!!! I mean, that was plain rude! Ruder than I thought Sherlock could ever be! I wanted to punch him so badly then!! I was shocked when I saw that John started laughing as well. I think I’d have a mental breakdown.

And finally, a thing that confused me and made me laugh was when Sherlock saw Molly’s fiance… Now, let’s get this cleared up! I am pretty certain that Sherlock likes Molly from the moment he said that Moriarty didn’t think that the least important person in Sherlock’s life was actually the most important one. So, for me that covers it up. BUT,  Molly also knew that Sherlock actually lived, so why did she get a boyfriend? And one that looked so much like Sherlock…why didn’t she wait? On one hand, I know that she must have gotten tired of waiting, but on the other hand I am angry with her because she didn’t!!! UGH!!! Oh, and this scene made me laugh because the surprised slash jealous look Sherlock gave Molly’s fiance was priceless, lol!!

After seeing this episode I still have some questions that I hope will be answered later in the season. Like: Did Sherlock tell the truth to Anderson? Did Anderson really go mad? Will captain Greg hug Sherlock again? Will Sherlock ACTUALLY kiss Molly? What is Mary lying about [when Sherlock “figured” her out]? Will this show ever stop to amaze me? Yep…basically these are my questions.

All in all, the wait was totally worth it! Even though two years was pretty damn much, it was worth it!! The cast did a marvelous job, and the rest of the crew made this show a real masterpiece. If I could, I would shake the hands of EVERYONE  that worked on this project and realized it so beautifully.

Well…this is how I’d really do it…

This second part of my review was pretty much me rambling like a total fangirl that I am…

HERE IS THE TRAILER FOR EPISODE 2 OF SEASON 3 IF YOU WANT TO SEE IT :).

I hoped you liked this review, and if you did let me know what you thought of the episode [good or bad] OR go and watch it! I promise you that you will like it!

Much love,
