What’s a better idea than to pay a visit to the cinema on a rainy day… We created a small movie marathon to keep yourself busy these days.
One. Olympus Has Fallen is a serious action thriller starring Morgan Freeman. The film presents a North Korean-led guerilla assault on the White House and focuses on a former secret service agent who tries to stop them…
Two. The Great Gatsby follows ‘Fitzgerald-like’, wannabe writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and visits to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Its a nice story about the infamous chase of the American Dream.
Three. Safe Haven is an affirming and suspenseful story about a young woman’s struggle to love again. The film is based on the novel from Nicholas Sparks, the best-selling author behind the hit films The Notebook and Dear John. When a mysterious young woman arrives in a small North Carolina town, she begins putting down roots and gains the courage to start a relationship with Alex, a widowed store owner with two young children. Meanwhile, dark secrets intrude on her new life with such terror that she is forced to rediscover the meaning of sacrifice and rely on the power of love.
Four. The Company You Keep is an engrossing thriller starring Robert Redford as Grant, a public interest lawyer and single father raising his daughter in the tranquil suburbs of Albany, New York. Grant’s world is turned upside down,when a brash young reporter named Ben Shepard (Shia LaBeouf) exposes his true identity as a former 1970s antiwar radical fugitive wanted for murder. After living for more than 30 years underground, Grant must now go on the run.
Five. The romantic comedy, The Big Wedding invites us to a wedding in which separated couple Don and Ellie, played by Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton, are forced to reunite and play husband and wife at their son’s ‘big day’… As the families gather, cracks soon begin to show in the proud parents’ charade with hilarious consequences.

Tyler Blake and Michael David are childhood friends who started a DJ duo Classixx in the suburbs of L.A. California. The DJ duo is better known by their previous stage name ‘Young Americans’. The name Classixx came from their love for Classic Compilations of various styles. The duo is influenced by a wide range of genres; from old school R&B to Paul Simon and Kraftwerk.
Classixx’s debut hit single I’ll Get You, featuring Jeppe was released in the summer of 2009 by the Paris based Kitsune Records.
Classixx’s debut album, Hanging Gardens, will be released tomorrow via Innovative Leisure. The album is full of electronic tracks with a fine Indie-touch… And next to the cool, electronic Indie twisted sounds, you will also hear a little funk, nu-disco and electro pop too!
