RIP Alan Rickman

Mettel Ray

So far, in my life, I have felt sad many times while the world has lost many great people. Talented actors, actresses, singers, writers, athletes, inspiring people – I’ve been sad because they left a mark on the world, and I felt connected to them through their body of work. Yet, I have only cried twice in my life over the loss of an actor, once eight years ago when Heath Ledger passed unexpectedly, and today, when Alan Rickman lost…

Snubs, Beards and Six Packs

Extra Mettel Ray

Instead of posting twice last week, I surrendered myself to work and just gave up on trying to keep my eye on everything that was happening until today. For instance, the award season begun with nominations, new trailers came out and that thing I wanted forever to happen, finally did on Modern Family!…

My Black Nights Film Festival

Events Mettel Ray

Image from Culture. Since 1997, Tallinn’s Black Nights Film Festival, a unique event showing feature films as well as short films, animations and youth films, has grown and developed into an A-class film festival. Taking place in November, when the nights here in Estonia are black and the air is cold, the festival provides warmth and comfort to cinema lovers, friends and enthusiasts all around the world. My own experience with Black Nights has been different each year but there’s…

Farewell Popcorn, Hello Coffee !

Extra Mettel Ray

Fall has always signified new beginnings for me. It’s not the New Year’s Eve that brings change, it’s the change in the air, the vast alteration in nature and for most importantly, for years, it symbolized the beginning of a new school year. This year, fall means changes that have happened on Mettel Ray, changes, that will hopefully stir my creativity and motivation a little. Changes, that were inevitable as I have changed and this blog, has always been a…

Happy Go Annoyed

Extra Mettel Ray

Today I woke up and everything seemed to go wrong. This has not happened in a while but the feeling is familiar to me and all I wanted to do was to whine and complain. Trust me, this is the kind of emotional state of mind where you don’t want to be in, you don’t even want to be near a person who has it and today I happened to have that utterly negative outlook on life in general. And…

Let’s Play: Movie Roulette Blogathon

Mettel Ray

Since it has been almost 1,5 years since I held my last blog event, I figured the 5th anniversary of Mettel Ray would be a great occasion to announce my Movie Roulette Blogathon! And since my last ones have required quite a lot of thinking and let’s be honest, work, I thought I’d simplify things by making Movie Roulette all about having some fun!…

26 Movie Scenes from 26 Years

Extra Mettel Ray

Between fighting minor cold symptoms and attacking the stupid fever with lots of tea, I tried my best to come up with a post to celebrate my birthday. Though I have had some great ideas for the fifth blog birthday coming up in May, I didn’t really think about my own celebratory time of the year where I add another number to my old age. Granted, not old yet but I like to joke that I am because while I…

Memorable In Their Discomfort

Extra Mettel Ray

The never ending discussion around Boyhood has finally reached a point where I simply can’t hold it in anymore. And no, this post won’t be on how it doesn’t deserve awards and it won’t be about bashing it because it’s overrated – this Coffee Talk is about another interesting thought that manifested while reading Elina’s take on Whiplash. She wrote: “…if I had to choose between Boyhood or any of the four other films (Whiplash, Foxcatcher, Nightcrawler, Gone Girl), I’d…

20 Things: Movies I Want to See in 2015

Extra Mettel Ray

Before I wrap up 2014 I peek towards the upcoming year filled with big names and even bigger movies. There’s action, there’s comedy, there’s tears and then there’s singing because you can’t be without singing and dancing! Some of these movies in this list are there because of anticipation, others I’m just curious about. But who knows what 2015 will bring but I for one  hope it brings a lot of greatness just like 2014 did!…
