I mean Avatar the movie. I know a lot of people criticized that this kind of story has been told so often. But to be honest have you ever seen before an other world in pictures like these? The nice people of at Dark Roasted Blend did a fine job and collected 10 Possible Sources of "Avatar" in Classic Science Fiction and I think it is worth reading.


Les Aventures Extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec
This is a French comic by artist Jacques Tardi which is settled in Paris around 1910. And Adèle Blanc-Sec is the tough heroine. Now French film Director Luc Besson is working on an Adèle Blanc-Sec movie. Have a look at the first teaser. It is in French but you don't nedd language skills for understanding. I hope the movie will find his way out of France.... For more information visitthe official site.

And not forget to say thank you to the good guys over at Steampunkopedia, who have knack for finding all these trailers.

Robin Hood
Yes, there is one more actor who wants to act as the famous hero of Sherwood Forest: Russell Crowe in a Ridley Scott movie. Watch the first trailer:

To be honest for me exist only one Robin Hood. Watch the following trailer. Still worth after all these years...


This week no German proverbs, sayings and idioms. Bona is going traditional...: Christmas quotes

" Do give books - religious or otherwise - for Christmas. They're never fattening, seldom sinful, and permanently personal."
Lenore Hershey

" A turkey never voted for an early Christmas."
Irish proverb

" Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself...
Norman Wesley Brooks, "Let Every Day Be Christmas," 1976

" At Christmas play and make good cheer,
For Christmas comes but once a year
Thomas Tusser
