Jinn (2012)

From the beginning, stories of angels and men have captured our imaginations and have been etched into our history crossing all boundaries of culture, religion, and time. These two races have dominated the landscape of modern mythology for countless centuries, almost washing away the evidence that a third ever existed. This third race, born of smokeless fire, was called the jinn. Similar to humans in many ways, the jinn lived invisibly among us and only under dire or unusual circumstances were our paths ever meant to cross.

The Boxtrolls (2014)

The Boxtrolls is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least that’s the legend residents have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human boy since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous pest exterminator who is bent on eradicating them as his ticket to Cheesebridge society, the kind-hearted band of tinkerers must turn to their adopted charge and an adventurous rich girl to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change – and cheese.

WOW! Mercy! Deine Filmliste rockt ja richtig! ♥

Die haste dir alle auf DVD geholt? Nice!
Den Planet der Affen Film will ich auch sehen. :]

The Boxtrolls! AWWWWWWWWWWWW! Ich hab den leider noch nicht gesehen, aber ich hab da mal nen Special mir angesehen und der sieht ja soooo süß aus! ♥

*lach* Ich mag halt ORDNUNG, auch wenn's nur auf der Website klappt. xD

Teilweise selbst geholt, teilweise geliehen und teilweise runtergeladen und dann auf DVD/Stick gezogen. Familie will ja auch mitgucken. <3

Planet der Affen war ganz gut, vor allem die menschlichen Schauspieler waren klasse, aber die Originalreihe schlägt irgendwie nix. :P

Jaaa, The Boxtrolls ist richtig knuffig gewesen, aber auch etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig. Manchmal zu hektisch und dann wieder zu langatmig, aber alles in allem ein tolles Film! Sehr zu empfehlen!!!

Und, was dich interessieren könnte, REC 4 ist der letzte Teil einer spanischen Zombiereihe! Teil 1, 2 und 4 hängen genau zusammen (durch die Figur der Ángela), während Teil 3 entfernt Verbindung hat aber auch dazugehört. Ich mochte schon Teil 1 & 2, war echt klasse gemacht, aber irgendwie hat's mich bei Teil 4 voll erwischt. O_o Ich shippere total Guzmàn und Àngela und hab auch schon ein Gif-Set gemacht. Fanfiction wird wohl nicht merh lange dauern bei mir. xD

Hauptsache man hat irgendwo Ordnung :D :) .

Ahhh, kaykay. Wo leihst du denn Filme? Richtig Altmodisch in der Videothek?

Ich glaube die Orginal Filme von Planet der Affen hab ich leider nie gesehen. Ich halte da mal ein Auge auf. Ich kenne aber die Verfilmung mit Mark Wahlberg und mag diesen Film wohl als Einzige auf dieser Welt *lol*.

Werde ich mir auf jedenfall angucken! Boxtrolls :) .

AHHHHHHHHHH! Ja, klar, ich kenne die US-Version! Mit Jennifer Carpenter im 1. Teil. Glaube auch das mir die Original Teile gut gefallen würden. ich weiß nicht genau wie da die Unterschiede sind, aber das ja egal :D .
Hast du die US-Version gesehen? Da gibts ja auch mindestens 2 Teile.
