When at first I saw the trailer my first thought was, how can a film only recorded in the sky is going to turn out interesting? But suddenly everybody started to talk about how great it was. I was so intrigued that I went to see the film.
I loved it. I can't describe how faster went the movie, I was nervious all the film! Just with two characters Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. There wasn't even music in the background, just the tiny sound of their heartbeats. It was so moving, so touching. And of course, amazing shoots of the Earth, breathtaking. Gravity is definitely one of my favourites films, although it's not my all time favourite (which I didn't find a film as good as that, yet).

Gravity is about two astronauts: a woman who had lost her daughter when she was four, and a man who was going to do his last expedition.
They get stuck in the space because a missile hit a satellite and caused a chain reaction that destroyed their rocket. At this point, the two astronauts try to reach to the Chinesse emergency rocket. They could move through the sky because the man is wearing a thruster pack. They were about to arrive when the battery of the thruster pack went off. For reach the rocket the man had to push the woman, but that means that he was going to die in the sky.
At the end, she could go home, down to the Earth.

The director is Alfonso Cuarón. ( He's also known thanks to some of the Harry Potter films)

 Here's the trailer:

I coudn't find a video about my favourite part of the film, that it's when the man knows that has to die if she has to survive. Instead, I found a photo where you can see that he's going to take off the security hook that was connecting both of them.

I really recommend it.

“They say that stars are fairies and that they shine thanks to their magic  dust. Sometimes, there are fairies that shine brighter than the Moon, the queen of the fairies. To punish them the Moon took away their magic dust. Without their magic dust they can’t shine or fly.”

Once upon a time in a town called Spring Valley there was a little girl, Aileth. She was seven years old, she had dark hair like the coal and blue eyes like the sea. She had frekles in her cheeks that made her enhance her shy personality. She didn't have a lot of friends but she had a very special friend, her pet. Boris, a red-haired cat.
She was always sad, her mother died two years ago in a car accident. She misses her so much but luckily her father is with her.
One day, Aileth was ready to go to bed when suddenly she saw that the stars were moving. She looked closely and she saw a shooting star. She made a wish: “Please, please. Can you beautiful star get my mother back from heaven?” She didn’t wait for an answer because she saw a light blue little fairy leaning in  a branch of a tree. Aileth saw that the beautiful fairy was trying to fly but she couldn’t. She decided that she was going to investigate more tomorrow morning.
The next day, when Aileth woke up found the fairy lying on her bed, sleeping. “Hello fairy! Did you come to make my wish come true?” The fairy said:“For going up in the sky again, I need to accomplish a wish from a little girl like you. When I was up there I could observe you and I know that you’re a good person and you deserve the best.”
Aileth was thinking about what the fairy said. Was she going to return her mother from heaven? She wasn’t sure but she believed the little fairy. “I belive in fairies!” She said.
It was a long day, so she went to bed early.
It was a Sunday morning before Aileth opened her eyes. Suddenly, she heared a very familiar voice; her mother’s vioce: “Hi darling! How are you feeling today?”

“And that’s why when they tell you to make a wish when you see a shooting star. The fairy that falls is going to acomplish it if she wants to go back to the sky.”

Nowadays I think that a lot of singers write songs protesting about something. I think it's easier to identify yourself in a song against something than in a love song ( but so many songs are about love!).

I've chosen a song called Wings, by Macklemore. He's a famous rapper right now because one of his songs (Third Shop) was number one in many countries and it was always on the radio. One day I was searching a little more about him and I found this song. 

The song is protesting about society. About how we all want to buy expensive things for then showing them to people. I think that it's more addressed to teenagers or young adults than adults in general. I would like to think that when you grow up you will find out how all those big companies of clothing, etc. are manipulating us. Making us think that you have to wear some specific things to be cool or to fit in, or even for being better about something just wearing what they're selling.

Macklemore is singing about Nike, specifically about a kind of shoes. He's playing with the meaning of the words, talking about Nike's shoes, but also  protesting against what are they trying to do to us:

"They told me to just do it, I listened to what that swoosh said
Look at what that swoosh did
See it consumed my thoughts
Are you stupid, don't crease 'em, just leave 'em in that box
Strangled by these laces, laces I can barely talk
That's my air bubble and I'm lost if it pops"

The underlined words are the ones that have that double meaning.

He's explaining it like a story. An experience that he had when he was little. I can feel identified in this song and I don't even have Nike's shoes. But I think that this is happening right now. We just want things because we think that if we don't purchase them we're not going to fit in. Sometimes it's true, we prejudge people without knowing them. Why? How can someone be better than you by just wearing an expensive T-shirt? I'm not saying that it's a bad thing to buy expensive clothes but before buying them you have to ask yourself why you are buying them. Is this T-shirt beautiful enough to spend a lot of money on it? Am I going to wear it that much? Is the quality good enough? ...

In this stage of our lives we care a lot about how we look like. We think it's more important what others think of you, but we don't see that first, we have to ask ourselves how we really want to be. This is the key for not letting anybody down.

The lyrics of the song:


I recorded this interview with Tania Argeles and Marcel Kotthaus.

Dear Milco,

I'm Anna Camós from first of batxillerat A. I'm sixteen and I live in Vilafant.
 I haven't got any brothers or sisters and I haven't got any pets either. Well, I don't mind not having any siblings. But I always wanted to have a cat, it's my favourite animal because cats are very independent, and also because they spend the hole day eating, lying on the sun and sleeping. Who doesn't want to live a life like that? They look like they are having a lot of pleasure doing the things that they do. If I had one I would join it with pleasure! As you can see I could spend the whole day speaking about cats... 
To cut straight, my hobbies are reading (when I have a long time to waste because I love to read when I'm relaxed and I don't have to do anything else), listening to music, playing volleyball and sleeping (I sleep less than I should sleep,  so maybe that's the reason why I love it so much). 
I don't know yet what I want to be in the future. I love languages but I think that they are an instrument to use. And I love art but I if you want to succeed you have to be the best, and I'm not as good as that. I also love biology, I find the part of sanity very interesting. 

That's all for now. See you in class!
