Hello everybody!
Well i have posted this entry because of the CULTURE DAYS, or rather, culture day because this year(like the last year) there is only one day. You know it will be this Friday 25th.
If students continue with this attitude we are going to get no culture days and then we will protest. We have to participate more in activities and have more interest.
This is important because many students have good times in the culture days and we must have a better attitude.
This is a warning because if we continue like now, there wont be culture days next year.
Many kisses!!!!

The Wonder of You.

For those of you who like classical, or even antique music, here you can enjoy one of Elvis Presley's great songs, The Wonder of You.

Apart from sharing our taste for good music, maybe you can tell me examples of "zero conditional" sentences taken from this song. Greetings.

Our best journey (with the piper’s kilt anecdote)

We travelled to Glasgow last summer in July, it was very hot. The hotel was in the Buchanan Street, an important street in Glasgow. There, we visited the museums and more important places. Also we were shopping in the most exclusive shops like “Burberry”. We bought clothes, accessories and presents for the family.

We chanced on with a friend and we had lunch in one of the city's best restaurants and we drank coke.
We met nice girls, we made their friends and they introduced us more people, they were very nice.
In the nights we went to took something in nearby pubs, we liked one that called “Joe’s Pub”. It had musical performances that were for new musicians and groups in the music world.

While we went for a walk through a street we met a pipers group, they wore the traditional skirt, called kilt. The music was fine, and was the first time that we listened that type of music. We saw it when started to be windy and a piper’s kilt raised, but we didn’t see anything that we ought not to see.

This was the most interesting, funny and great journey that we did up to now.

The first week I was visiting the Glasgow´s city. I went to a lot of places with a tourist guide:
The Burrel Collection, a very interesting art exhibition, and the main square, Georges Square, surrounded by Victorian buildings like the City Chambers.

At that time, I met some scottish teenagers, I had some nices moments with them and I could practice english.

During the second week I was visiting the high streets shopping: Buchanan Street and Prince´s Square; there I was buying souvenirs for the family.
When my friends and I were having lunch in Aurora (a very modern restaurant), I met a very handsome boy, Sam with who I finished my third and fourth week in Glasgow; we went to a beautiful city next there. It has been the best of my trip!!

Also we buy many things in the most famous streets of Glasgow as the Buchanan street. We visit the museum Hunterian and we liked very much the part of medicine and of Mackintosh. Later we were aver the university of Glasgow and it does not have anything peculiar. Only villain of the trip esque was been very cold and evil time. What we surprised was the great quantity of parks in the city.It was a very nice trip and an unforgettable experience.

Glasgow nights parties

We come there after long hours in that ship.
The first thing that we did was to buy a guide of glasgow to find out about the places of interest. The first days we got lost for those enormous avenues replete with shops and with people that in her they was buying. One evening we stop in a tavern that they were televising the old firm match that according to those of the place was an important match. Since we did not like the football we drank good beer.
On having stopped drinking the waiter said to us that prompt will be a great concert in glasgow said to us that shell us income of retail smuggling I boast. We agree and to two days already we was ready to listen to such a The Twilight Sad. It was a spectacular concert we are charmed with me. This night we will not forget easily. On the following morning we visit the Hunterian Museum. We saw fantastic things as a fossil of tree, cleopatra's currency and a great hung trout of the roof (it was the best thing).Ultimately our visit to glasgow was wonderfull. We learned a lot of this great city. I recommend to everything that wants to happen a funny month.

An amazing trip to Glasgow

Last Summer , we went to Glasgow and we spent a whole month there...

When we arrive in our hotel ,"The Belhaven",we were very surprised, the building was a beautiful victorian house, it was very little only 16 rooms but It was very nice.

We wanted to visit every cultural place in glasgow so we visited the cathedral, where is buried San Mungo, this tomb was one of the areas of peregrination of the Middle Ages.
We also saw many museums of this city like the Hunterian Museum and Hunterian Art Gallery,Burrel collection, where we saw pictures of painters as important as Renoir and Cezane, The Museum of the Transport, a museum that seemed to us very curious because it reproduces a typical street of the city of the 30s,The Museum McLean: A museum centred on the social history of Glasgow, the gallery of modern art,and the Lighthouse.
We also were interested in Mackintosh's works, we visited almost all his buildings, but the one that we liked most was The Willow tea room, where we have a tea.
We visited the Art School of Glasgow and the Science Museum where there was a cinema IMAX to see movies in 3D.
We went shopping in the city, It has a lots of big avenues and important malls, as Buchanan Galleries, Italian Centre, Princes Square and the St Enoch Centres.
These places are near of bars, where after buying we could relax and take a coffee.
In the West-End, there are incredible antique shops, places of crafts and old bookshops, for those who want to take something more original , as a present for my mother.

The local gastronomy of Glasgow is very good.
You can enjoy from delicious seafood, meats of hunt, vegetables, the pies of cow meat, the cheese of the Islands Orkneys, and the bannocks, cakes of oats.
To taste all these food, it is ideal Rab Ha's ,one of the most popular restaurant, in the ancient neighborhood of Glasgow, where they specialize themselves in the traditional Scotishfood.
Walking for the downtown,we discover a very curious bar, The Drum and Monkey, ideally if you have curiosity to tasteone of the tens tries beers that have in the menu.

A part of this bar we saw that in this city there are plenty of nightclubs in the heart of the West End .
At the end, Our impression of Glasgow is that is a very nice city , We loved it a lot, and we think that everybody have to visit it!!

readingIn this time of Easter, a lot of people celebrate this know festivity, but few know the real meaning of the Easter eggs or the Easter bunny..., so I decided show you few of all traditions of this time of the year that in some cases unknown and with which I hope we learn a lot of things. I hope you like it, and happy Easter!

The story of Easter
Easter is the time of spring festivals. In Christian countries Easter is celebrate as the religious holiday that commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the son of God.
But the celebrations of Easter has many customs and legends that are pagan in origin and they haven't any relation with Christianity.
The scholars accept the derivation proposed by the 8th century English scholar St. Bede, they believe that the name Easter come from the Scandinavian "Ostra" and the Teutonic "Ostern" or "Eastre," two Goddesses of mythology that signify spring and fertility whose festival was celebrated on the day of the vernal equinox.
The Christian celebration of Easter has a number of traditions that are relationed with the Easter to the Jewish festival of Passover, or Pesach, from which is derived Pasch, another name used by Europeans for Easter.
Passover is an important festivity in the Jewish calendar which is celebrated during 8 days and celebrates the flight and freedom of the Israelites from its slavery in Egypt.
The first Christians, many of them had a Jewish origin, were brought up in the Hebrew tradition and they considered Easter as a new caracteristic of the Passover festival, a commemoration of the coming of the Messiah an event that the prophets told.
Easter is celebrated by the churches of the West the first Sunday following the full moon that happens after the spring equinox (March 2I). So Easter became a movable festivity which can be celebrated as very early the 22nd March or as very late the 25th April .
The christian churches of the East which were closer to the birthplace of the new religion and where old traditions were strong, celebrate Easter according to the date of the Passover festival.
Easter is at the end of the Lenten season, that covers a forty-six-day period that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends with Easter.
The Lenten season is comprised by forty days, because the six Sundays in Lent are not actually a part of Lent, so Sundays are considered a commemoration of Easter Sunday and have always been excluded from the Lenten. The Lenten season is a period of penitence in preparation for the most important festival that the church celebrates every year, Easter.
Holy Week, the last week of Lent, begins with the celebration of Palm Sunday. That day takes its name from the Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem where the people laid palms at his feet. Holy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper, which was celebrated the evening before the Crucifixion. Friday in Holy Week is the anniversary of the Crufixion, the day that Christ was crucified and died on the cross. Holy week and the Lenten season end with Easter Sunday, the day of resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Why Easter eggs?
Of all the symbols associated with Easter the egg, the symbol of fertility and new life, is the most identifiable. The customs and traditions of using eggs have been associated with Easter for centuries.

Originally Easter eggs were painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring and were used in Easter-egg rolling contests or given as gifts.
After they were colored and etched with various designs, the eggs were used like presents by a lot of people : they were exchanged by lovers and romantic admirers, similar to St. valentine ;in medieval time eggs were traditionally given at Easter to the servants;in Germany eggs were given to children along with other Easter gifts...
Different cultures have developed their own ways of decorate Easter eggs: Crimson eggs, to honor the blood of Christ, are exchanged in Greece; in parts of Germany and Austria green eggs are used on Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday); Slavic peoples decorated their eggs with incredible colors like gold and silver.
In Germany and other countries eggs are used for cooking where are not broken, but the contents were removed by the end of each egg with a needle and blowing the contents into a bowl.
The hollow eggs were dyed and hung from shrubs and trees during the Easter Week.
The Armenians would decorate hollow eggs with pictures of Christ, the Virgin Mary, and other religious designs.
The custom of hiding eggs painted on the field or in the gardens of the houses, for the joy of children who have to find themselves, continued in many countries, including the United States. Curiously in the gardens of the White House Easter Day there happen a singular career where kids have to roll eggs. Win who reaches farther without breaking them.

That´s the story of the Easter eggs, but there are also Easter eggs that are very different that lasts...
A virtual Easter egg is an intentional hidden message or feature in an object such as a movie, book, CD, DVD, computer program, or video game.
The term draws a parallel with the custom of the Easter egg hunt observed in many western nations.
This practice is used to hide, but also to show the signature of the author in some place or moment of their works, as Diego Rivera (a world-famous Mexican painter) including himself in his murals or Alfred Hitchcock's legendary cameo appearances.
An early example of these kind of "Easter eggs" is Al Hirschfeld's "Nina".
Albert Hirschfeld was a Jewish American caricaturist best known for his simple black and white satirical portraits of celebrities and Broadway stars.
Hirschfeld is known for hiding the name of his daughter, Nina, in most of the drawings he produced since her birth in 1945.

Here you can see a drawing of Al Hirschfeld where he hid the name of his daughter in a sleeve.
You can have a good moment while you try to find the five Ninas hidden in this drawing:

Atari's Adventure, released in 1979, contained what is thought to be the first video game "Easter egg": the name of the programmer (Warren Robinett).
If you want see this “Easter egg” where appear the name of the programmer in the video game, click on the next link:
Easter egg on the Atari´s Adventure video game

The Easter Bunny
The Easter Bunny is a mythological rabbit who brings gifts and candy to children on the Easter holiday, that is based on pre-Christian customs honoring the fertility goddess Eostre.
Rabbits and hares, are fertility symbols from a long time ago.Since birds lay eggs and rabbits and hares give birth to large litters in the beginning of the spring, these became symbols of the fertility of the earth at the Vernal Equinox.
The bunny as an Easter symbol have its origins in Germany, where it was first mentioned in German writings in the 1500s. The Easter bunny was introduced to American folklore by the German settlers that arrived in the Pennsylvania Dutch country during the 1700s.
The first edible Easter bunnies were made in Germany during the early 1800s. And were made of pastry and sugar.
The arrival of the "Oschter Haws" was considered one of the greatest pleasures of the life of a child. The children believed that if they were good the "Oschter Haws" he will bring they a nest of colored eggs.
The children built their nest in a sure place in the home, the barn or the garden. The boys would use their caps and the girls their bonnets to make the nests. The use of elaborate Easter baskets would come later as one of the traditions of the Easter in all the country.

The damned prince

Once upon a time...
...there was a castle in a very rich kingdom. There was a curse in the castle, all of the subjects were damned. There was also a prince, he wasn't damned at all, he was locked at the highest tower of the castle. His name was Edward, he was very handsome, his eyes were light blue and his hair was black. He had been locked by his father, the king. He was very wicked and he didn't love the prince.

In a wonderful island, where the animals could sing and the trees told fairytales,there lived a princess called Violet, she was blonde with blue eyes, and she had heard that the prince was damned and she decided to rescue him. She hadn't got anything to save him and her friends, the animals, gave her a magic carpet. She flew on the magic carpet for three days and three nights but suddenly she found a hut in the forest. There lived a wise dwarf who helped her to find Edward. He told her that she had to visit an old witch who lived in a dark forest far, far away.

One night after she went out to look for the witch there was a terrible storm and she fell down. When she woke up she saw a black wolf, she was scared but the wolf told her that he wanted to help her so she followed him through the forest to visit the witch.
When she arrived there, the witch gave her a magic sword to fight the dragon that guarded the prince. She also gave the princess a magic potion: «This potion is for taking away the curse. The prince will fall in love with the person who has given him the potion», said the witch.
Violet decided to travel alone, she crossed the leafy forest, the ardent desert, the chill glacier and the highest mountain up to arrive in the damned kingdom.

She went to Edward's castle and she looked for the tower, but she saw that it was protected by a huge dragon and, to save the prince, she had to kill the dragon helped by the magic sword.
After a hard fight, the princess was hurt seriously but suddenly a phoenix came to help her in the rescue of Edward. As the bird was fighting against the dragon, Violet went to look for the prince. When she had already found him, it was too late, the prince had been changed into a horrible green toad, the princess started to cry because she couldn't do anything to help Edward. The phoenix finally killed the dragon and it saw that the princess was crying. It went to help her and it gave her a magic crown which could turn the prince into human while he wore it. Then, the princess gave him the crown and the prince became human again. Violet gave the potion to heal the curse, and Edward was released from his curse, he fell in love with Violet and it was at that very moment that the phoenix became human again (he used to be a prince who had died of love),
«Thanks to you, now I can die with my beloved, you have broken my curse with your first kiss of love», he said.

Years later they get married, and visited their kingdom in a wonderful carriage, they had many children, heirs of the kingdom,and...
...they lived happily ever after.

This story is told in a book kept in a safe hidden like a treasure in a safe place of the kingdom, as a legend of the kingdom explains.

Once upon a time.... a leafy and dark forest in the north of Africa, there was an ancient and high tower guarded by an extraordinary golden dragon. This mysterious tower had a magic carpet at its peak; if one prince sat on the carpet, he could save a pretty princess who had been taken prisioner of a very evil witch in a remote castle which was on a lonely island.

In a stormy day a brave and handsome prince arrived to the tower and killed the dragon with his legendary sword. He managed to go to the island on the carpet but he didn't find the castle.

Accidentally he found a small and cosy house. He went into the house where a bald dwarf lived. The dwarf explained to him that the only way to get to the castle was riding a giant eagle.
The prince managed to arrive at the castle and the eagle pecked the witch ... Suddenly a toad appeared and the princess was set free.

The princess, to thank him, gave him a treasure with a lot of jewellery and crowns.
They got married, he gave her a brilliant ring and they lived happily ever after wich a magic white wolf...

The Chorus Rewiew.

My favourite actor in the film is Jean Bastiste Maunier ( he as Pierre Morhange ), I think that he act well and I love his voice, It is beautiful.
I like the movie because I think that is lovely the way that Mathieu try help the classmates by means of the music, without a use extreme of punishments, and this help is successful . Is interesting see during the movie, the improvement in classmates behaviour, and the good humour that have correctional school's inhabitants. And although they don’t know, the chorus will change their lifes forever. The sound track is beautiful.
The movie starts in the present time. Pierre Morhange , a world famous French conductor (he lives now in America) receives a call from France informing him of his mother's death. Morhange returns to France for the funeral. After that a middle-aged man appears at his french home. Morhange has no idea who is the man, but the stranger reveals that himself is Pépinot, one of Morhange's classmates at the correctional school Fond de L'Etang.
Pépinot shows Morhange the journal of Clément Mathieu, Morhange proceeds to read the journal, and the story begins.
In 1949, Clément Mathieu, a music theacher in unemployment, beginning to work like supervisor in Fond de L’etang, a correctional school. The head teacher Reachin’s education rules, specially repressive, can hardly authority about difficult classmates. Mathieu doesn’t like the Rachin’s rules and he feel sorry by them. When he try know they, he found out that the music attrac the classmates interest, he familiarize them with the singing, and he creat a choir and conduct it.

My recommendation?? Watch it because is beautiful!! But with handkerchiefs because it’s very sentimental, and listen de sound track… you will love it!!

Million Dollar Baby

My favourite film is Million Dollar Baby.

In the film, my favourite actor is Cleant Eastwood and my favourite actress, Hilary Swank. I like this film because it's sad, but it has a very beautiful love story.

Maggie (Hilary Swank) was a girl who who wanted be a boxer, but nobody trained her because she was a woman. But when she got be a professional boxer (thanks to her trainer, Frankie - Cleant Eastwood) and she was really ner to win the championship, one opponent made she paralytic.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At the end of the world

One of my favourite movies is Pirates of the Caribbean: At the end of the world.
My favourites actors are Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom, and my favourite actress are Keira Knightley. I think who this actors are really incredibles because they act and they get into their paper very well! I really like the story because it has adventure, a lot of emotionals sword combats, mistery, humour and incredible special effects. I also like the music, it's fabolous! The ending is sad, but not at all depressing.

It is a dark time as the Age of Piracy nears to a close. Lord Cutler Beckett (as TOM HOLLANDER) of the East India Company has gained control of the terrifying ghost ship, the Flying Dutchman, and its malevolent, vengeful captain, Davy Jones (as BILL NIGHY). The Dutchman now roams the seven seas, unstoppable, destroying pirate ships without mercy, under the command of Admiral Norrington (as JACK DAVENPORT).
Will Turner (as ORLANDO BLOOM), Elizabeth Swann (as KEIRA KNIGHTLEY) and Captain Barbossa (as GEOFFREY RUSH) embark on a desperate quest to gather the Nine Lords of the Brethren Court, their only hope to defeat Beckett, the Flying Dutchman, and his Armada.
But one of the Lords is missing—Captain Jack Sparrow (as JOHNNY DEPP), either the best or worst pirate ever, and now trapped in Davy Jones’ Locker, thanks to his encounter with the monstrous Kraken.
In an increasingly shaky alliance, our heroes, including Tia Dalma (as NAOMIE HARRIS), Pintel (as LEE ARENBERG) and Ragetti (as MACKENZIE CROOK), must first travel to dangerous, exotic Singapore and confront Chinese pirate Captain Sao Feng (as CHOW YUN-FAT) to gain charts, and a ship, that will take them off to world’s end, to rescue Jack.
But even if Captain Jack is successfully rescued, the gathering of the legendary Brethren Court may not be enough to hold back the fearsome tide of Beckett, Davy Jones and their powerful Armada…unless the capricious sea goddess Calypso, imprisoned in human form, can be freed and convinced to come to their aid. As betrayal piles upon betrayal, it becomes clear that Jack, Will, Elizabeth, Sao Feng, and Barbossa each have their own agenda, and no one can be trusted. Yet each must choose a side, and make their final alliances for one last battle, in a titanic showdown that could eliminate the freedom-loving pirates from the seven seas...forever.

My favourite film is ``The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen´´. The main actor is Sean Connery, Shane West, Naseeruddin Shah, Tony Curran, Jason Flemyng, Stuart Townsend and Richard Roxburgh and the main actress is Peta Wilson. The film is an adjustment for cinema based on the cómic of Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neal. The film begins in 1889 with a series of thefts and dramatic affronts in Berlin and London.

" Como agua para el chocolate"

My favourite film is " Como agua para el chocolate".

The main actor is Marco Leonardi as Pedro Muzquiz and the main actress is Lumi Cavazos as Tita de la Garza.

The Story took place at the end of the nineteenth century and at the begining of the twentyth century.

It's about a novel written by Laura Esquivel.

The film is about Tita and Pedro had fallen in love but the tradition in Tita's family is that the youngest girl in the family couldn't get married because she had to care her mum during her oldness.Tita is the third of three sisters: Rosaura and gertudis so she had to do that.

Pedro wanted to be near Tita so he got married with Rosaura , Tita's old sister.

Tita and Pedro were compelled to hide his true feelings until Rosaura's death.

It's the story if a woman who overcomed the defeat, the treachery an a familiar legacy,for found her destiny with the man that she loved actually.

I love this film because I love this kind of films, romances and drama.

The story is exciting and I love Tita's caracter , I think she is so sweet.

The end is very Sad but lovely too. I had cried a lot.

The costumes are really good, the music is OK! but I really enjoyed the dialogues.

The most Curious detail is that All the fil are realted to cook recipes.
This film is very unknow because It isn't a super North-American production , and the actors are not very famous.
My recomendation is that If you are a romatic and a sensible person you'll enjoy this film very much but you have to have a tissues box near you.

One of my favorites films is "A Walk to Remember".
My favorite actor in the movie was "Shane West" as "London Carter" and my favorite actress was "Mandy Moore" as "Jamie Sullivan". They are the protagonist.
I liked the movie because it was a very sentimental love story in which I think we can learn and draw conclusions. It was a story between two teenegers who think that their world rounds around another. Also it was very realist because there were bad and painful feelings.
The story is about a very popular boy in the high school (London Carter), very handsome, who passes all, and the most important thing for him was his popularity; and a marginalez girl (Jaime Sullivan) who doesn´t mind that people thinks of her. She has a great faith in miracles. She was priest daughter and her clothes were stranges. They falled in love because he was grounded at the high school participating in a play and she helps with the role.
He departed from his popularity and his friends just to be with her (it´s really beautiful!!)...but she had a secret that changed everything (so if you want to know the secret wath it!).
This movie tried to teach that "love is a leap of faith" (do you think of?).
This film was directed by Adams Shankman. It was writed by Nikolas Sparks (novel) and Karen Janszen (screenplay). The date that it was released at Spain was 14 November 2003. It won three oscars and was nominated two.
My recomendation is that , if you like love and drams films, or stories about teenegers in a high school, or if you like crying with movies...WATH IT!!!
Here are some links, this is for see the trailer:

If you want, watch the spanish trailer...but this is an english i didn´t put the spanish link.

I´ve writen about this film because i liked very much and we have seen in one subjet so i remembered it. But i have a lot of favorites film. Maybe some people don´t like this film because it´s very sentimental...but...for tastes the colours!

...Love is like the cannot see it but you can always feel it.....

Resident Evil Extinction.

Third movie of resident evil, the heroine, Milla Jovovich, together with the survivors of the catastrophe happened in Raccoon's city they must cross the desert of Nevada with the hope to come to Alaska, before the zombis of the Corporation Umbrella reach them.
If do not seize I dress the previous ones advise you to see them before seeing this one, you do not go away to taking a desilución when you see this one.
The effects are very well successful, the scenes of combat are amazing, Mile continues being handsome pretty like in other two previous ones, the music and the sound are excellent but always there is one but, the end.
The end finishes like to make other one new.
The movie lasts 90 minutes approximately.
My recommendation is if you don't see the others films I recommended you to see this, the best film!!

The Guardian

My favourite film is The Guardian.

The film
The beginning of the movie is presented by a mythical leyend: The people lost in the sea, say that when they wait for help, a presence takes them out of the danger and that it stay with them until they are rescued. They call this presence "The Guardian."
Initially of " The guardian ", the legendary swimmer of rescue Ben Randall (Kevin Costner) appears as the surviving only one of a mortal accident happened during a storm of enormous proportions. After the accident, and against his will, they send him to give lessons to the School A, the program of training a few aspirants in the best swimmers of rescue. Ben struggles to overcome the frustration and submits body and soul to the education as,like only he can do: revolutionizing the program with not conventional methods of training. But Ben is perfectly conscious of what exists in game: he knows that tomorrow his pupils will have to take very difficult decisions to choose between who of they dies and the one who survives.
When he knows the champion of swimming Jake Fischer (Ashton Kutcher), Ben understands that he is a man who can be the best. But he’ll have to teach him to combine his talent and the dedication that they are necessary in this profession and also not to realize the mistakes that Ben committed in his day. They’ll embark in his first and dangerous mission with the waters of terrifics of Bering Sea in Alaska, and Jake will have to put in the practice everything what he has learned.
There, they couldn’t save anypeople because they were dead, during the return the rope of rescue begin to break. Ben, understands that it can't support both, frees from the rope himself and take place the fall from a fatal height in the ocean.
After the funeral Ben Randall's service , Jake again is sent to rescue a man. When already he is rescued, the victim ask him where is the another man who helped him, until the help was coming. Jake attributes this to Ben's presence and considers Ben to be immortalized as " The Guardian ": an eternal help gives for those who are lost.

Other information
In this world there are many types of heroes. There are all these men who save life every day: firemen, policemen... But also there are others that work on the second plane, but that risk everything what they are and everything what they have for saving lives of strange persons in the most extreme and dangerous circumstances. And this category there enter the extraordinary one and little known body of the Swimmers of Rescue of the Coastal Guard. Brave men and women, form an elite that possesses the physical and mental sufficientitself force to throw in free fall from a helicopter to submerge in seas with the only purpose of rescue those who are nearly of die, being their lifes the price.

The Coastal Guard saves every year near 5.000 persons and 2.500 million dollars in properties. During the devastating season of hurricanes that lived Through The United States in 2005, 33.520 persons rescued or evacuated in the states of the Gulf devastated by the Hurricane Katrina.

Personal opinion
I like the film because it show you the danger that suffer the people that work at this job, that they risk their life, to save the other’s people. Also I like it because is very interesting even though the end is sad to me.
My favourites actors in this film are the main characters: Kevin Costner as Ben Randall, because he plays very well his role by a person that his job is his life, and Ashton Kutcher as Jake Fischer because he represent a role of a young man that fight by that he want, and that learn a lot of things that Ben show him.

My recommendation is simply take this movie and beside spending at home a good moment with your friends, you’ll learn a lot of things about the life.

My favourite film last year was The Orphanage; the main character in the movie was Belén Rueda and I think that She´s a good actress.
My opinion about this film is that It´s a good horror film, and I like this kind of movies.
It was very entertaining and exciting, and It had a good plot. Belén Rueda acts as a girl who lived at the orphanage in the past with other children, who died for an unknown cause.
Actually She acts the new head in the Orphanage where there were the children ghosts who died there.
Suddenly, head´s son disappeared and She searched for him alone. At the end She and her son died because It was their fate.
The music was really scary and the atmosphere was shivery. I like very much the special effects too. The only thing that I didn´t like was the end...It was sad.
I recommend ir to all the people that they like to be frightened.

In my view. I think this film is one of the best films apart from Resident Evil, Matrix, Rambo and so on. Al Pacino plays the role of Tony Montana perfectly.
The film fits its setting very well and the music is by Paul Engan, who was very famous in the 1980. Besides the film was directed by Briant de Palma , a great film director.
This film is very well-known because of the phrases that Montana uses and the climax in the last scene where Montana dies. The film is so good that two videogames have been created : Gta vice city and Scarface the world is yours. This film has become so fashionable that there is even foreing group called SCARFACE.

28 Weeks Later

My favorite movie is 28 Weeks After. My favorite actors and actresses of the film are: Imogen Poots (Tammy, Survivor), Rose Byrne (Scarlet, nurse Military) and Jeremy Renner (Doyle, Sniper Delta). I like that is a movie zombies and deadly viruses, but especially by zombies and scenes so well made, one example is the scene in the house with two elderly, marriage, Muslim and desperate by the blonde the groom has come "to seek help" but that like all the others to dead.
This is the continuation of Part 1, entitled 28 Days After and begins like this: A powerful virus is released in Britain after the raid on a laboratory research on primates of a group of activists for the rights of animals.
Fowared through the blood and devastating effects ca-if immediate, the virus leaves infected in a permanent state of murderous rage. In 28 days, the entire country is infected and a handful of survivors try to save his life, realizing that the deadly virus is not the only thing hanging-tion a threat on them. And continued like this: Six months after the virus hit Britain, the army of the United States declared that the war against the virus that has been won the reconstruction of the country can sar start. With the return of a first wave of refugees, there is the reunion of a family that had been separated by the terrible events that occurred, but one of its members carries without him being aware, a terrible secret ...
Another? That the shooting began on September 1 for a total of nine weeks, but previously had been shot four days in the month of July, filming scenes of Jim in the deserted streets of London. The shooting took place in the morning, no more dawn and before it started during rush hour, to make it easier to close the streets of London.
