From trailer to trailer on YouTube in order to correlate the ratings on IMDB and RottenTomatoes with what a movie has to offer, eventually I reached some 2014 teasers that captured my attention. I thought that they deserves our attention, so this is a post to point them out of the crowd.
There are only three movies (there must be a number connection with Three Years After!):
- Winter’s Tale,
- The Prototype, and
- Jupiter Ascending.

In 1941 three men walked out of the Himalayas into India.
They had survived a 4000 mile walk to freedom.
This film is dedicated to them.
It is inspired by the book “The Long Walk” by Slavomir Rawicz, a long journey from Siberia, to India, crossing Mongolia, China and Tibet. A journey to freedom.
The Way Back on IMDB.com.

Thoughts and words that came into my mind while watching Crazy Heart:
A movie (at least) for country music lovers.
Some sort of (a musician’s) life style.
Phone booth in the middle of nowhere. (quite a landscape!)
A fishing scene.
Director: Scott Cooper
Cast: Jeff Bridges, Robert Duvall, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Colin Farrell
The other day I’ve watched Ondine, a movie starring Colin Farrell.
