Any predictions amis lecteurs?


  1. Hmmm je suis d'accord pour la plupart de tes choix... SAUF...desolé Jean... pour l'acteur masculin, je pense que Clooney est absolument incroyable dans les Descendants, meme si Dujardin est brillant dans "the artist", en tout cas il se pourrait bien que ton avis change apres avoir vu les Descendants.

    1. C'est possible, je te dirai quand on le verra alors :)

  2. Pas mal finalement vos prédictions :) (et merci, je vous link aussi :))
