Final Scene of the great movie directed by Billy Wilder
This final scene from Some Like It Hot (Con faldas y a lo loco) is one of the most famous scenes ever! It is also one of my favourite movies from classic cinema. Billy Wilder is considered a genius in cinema history and his films are simple AMAZING for the time they were made.
Please, investigate for a while in classic cinema and tell me which film do you like from this period: 1930s - 1960s
Matthew McConaughey will be this year's American Cinematheque honoree, the org has announced. The Oscar winner will receive the award on Oct. 21 at the Cinematheque's annual gala, to be held at the...
And what about Matthew?! His incredible change is obvious: from a "surfing boy" to an Oscar-winning actor! Well, he has never been taken seriously in Hollywood. All what he did was related to action movies or romantic comedies. None of his roles was outstanding. And then..... Dallas Buyers Club and Wolf of Wall Street changed his career forever.
Hey! And what about some comedy? Do you like comedy films? We could talk about different kinds of comedy: romantic comedy or ..... just just comedy... or simply comedies that are supposed to be funny but are not... You know. As this film. That's my opinion: the easier and faster is the laughter, the worse and easily forgotten is the film. What do you think?

It's March. It's freezing. And there's half a foot of snow on the ground. When is this winter going to end?
Many scientists think that climate change might be one cause of this year's "snowpocalypse" in Boston and bitter cold snaps in New York and Washington.
But physicists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory have been looking into another culprit: air pollution in China and India.
"Over the past 30 years or so, man-made emission centers have shifted from traditional industrialized countries to fast, developing countries in Asia," physicist Jonathan Jiang writes in an email.
The animation from NASA shows how pollution from Asia and other continents mixes and moves around the world. (It's a simulation made with satellite data from September 2006 to April 2007.)
The colorful swirls represent airborne particles in the atmosphere. Many of those particles are sea salt (shown in blue) picked up from the ocean, and dust (shown in red-orange) scooped up from deserts.
But there are also man-made sources of particles. Soot from fires is shown in green-yellow, and sulfur from fossil fuel emissions and volcanoes is in white.
As the animation moves through time, you can see fires billow up from South America and parts of Africa. Dust from the Sahara Desert sweeps west, and power plants in North America and Europe emit sulfur that blows east.
Then, about 43 seconds into the video, Asia comes into view. And its coal-powered industrialization is clear.
