Upcoming March's guilty pleasures

I will show you which are March's guilty pleasures for me. Let's start with the upcoming movie that I MUST see this March.

Sucker Punch

Why is this movie a MUST? oh well: schoolgirls, nazis, dragons, samurai, Samurai Boss ... WTF! It's the perfect combination, and from the visionary regizor of 300 - Zack Snyder.


Battle: Los Angeles

Umm let's see: alien invasion, modern warfare, UFO, Michelle Rodrigez, my hope that it will be the next War of the Worlds (with a better ending), apocalyptic scenario! Check - it's my guilty pleasure and it's a MUST SEE for me.


And YES I think it's a MUST that you see these movies at IMAX.

... de Dragobete

Dragobetele este o sărbătoare românească celebrată pe 24 februarie sau în unele locuri pe sau la 28 februarie, l, 3 și 25 martie. Sărbătoarea de Dragobete este considerată echivalentul românesc al sărbătorii Valentine's Day, sau ziua Sfântului Valentin, sărbătoare a iubirii. Etimologia cuvântului a fost dezbătută de numeroși etnologi și filologi, propunându-se variate explicații pentru originea sa. Tradiții se păstrează cu precădere în sudul și sud-vestul României. - wikipedia/ro

Dragobete is a traditional Romanian holiday, celebrated on February 24. Dragobete was the son of Baba Dochia.

The day is known as "the day when the birds are betrothed". It is around this time that the birds begin to build their nests and mate. On this day, considered locally the first day of spring, boys and girls gather vernal flowers and sing together. Maidens used to collect the snow that still lies on the ground in many villages and then melt it, using the water in magic potions throughout the rest of the year. Those who take part in Dragobete customs are supposed to be protected from illness, especially fevers, for the rest of the year. If the weather allows, girls and boys pick snowdrops or other early spring plants for the person they are courting. In Romania, Dragobete is known as a day for lovers, rather like Valentine's Day.

It is a common belief in some parts of Romania that, during this celebration, if you step over your partner's foot, you will have the dominant role in your relationship. Dragobete customs vary from region to region.

In neighbouring Bulgaria, the custom of stepping over one's partner's feet traditionally takes place during weddings, and with the same purpose, but it is not believed to be connected to Dragobete. -wikipedia/en

It's simple: In Romania we celebrate Valentine's Day on 24 february (today), and it's called Dragobete.

Batman - Arkham City

After I have finished Batman Arkham Asylum, the most wanted and expected tile is the upcoming Batman - Arkham City [Batman Arkham Asylum2]. In my opinion, Batman Arkham Asylum it's all that a true Batman fan ever wanted from a Batman game: atmosphere, great acting, outstanding visuals, dark surroundings, magnificent soundtrack and a Batman that YOU control and could be a death weapon or a silent predator.
I can only hope that Batman - Arkham City will be twice the Arkham Asylum, and with the screenshots that you will see (you can see all of them at high resolution at and the 2 trailers/ teasers I am confident that my words will become reality.

Trailers/ teasers of Batman - Arkham City:
