Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Failed to get a Second Season

Thursday Movie Picks

This is an exciting week for me because this week’s theme is so much fun! I share shows, that managed to crawl under my skin with just one season, only to be ripped away from me. I’m talking about shows that weren’t that bad, but decent enough. Shows that should have been given a second season. Shows, that I still sometimes wonder about.  And I still don’t get how they were cancelled because they weren’t that bad!…

Blindspot 2018, April: The Shining

Blindspot

That’s right, I had not seen The Shining before last week and I’m okay with that. Because only in recent years have I started to appreciate horror, and its genre for something other than jump scares and blood splatters. So it seems that it was just the right time for me, to finally watch The Shining.…

CB: I Wish I Was Bucky & Please, Let Us Survive This Week

Commercial Break

The incredible feature image is by Luna Roveda. What started off as a slow and disappointing week, ended with me being sick, reading a book, finishing my work, and perving out to a movie with Chris Evans. So all in all, I would say it was a good week. This one, oh but this one, is going to be a hell of a week for me… and us… and all the Marvel fans – it’s Infinity War Week!!…

Fictional Friday: Recent Book Purchases

Fictional Friday

It’s Friday, and I’m finally posting another Fictional Friday for you guys. I know I meant to make this into a weekly feature but I’ve been suffering under a reading slump. Which apparently is affecting my motivation to post literature-related content on my blog. This week I’m sharing a few recent book purchases, and reasons why I bought them.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Meltdowns

Thursday Movie Picks

With this week’s theme we are going dark. Which is ironic, considering Spring has finally arrived and I myself feel a lot better than a few weeks ago. Yet, my next three recommendations are all three very melancholy movies. All three circle around suicide, suicidal thoughts and those quiet meltdowns, that are even harder to process than the loud ones.…

CB: Free Licks & A Bit of Sunshine

Commercial Break

Welcome readers, I’m back again to deliver the weekly recap of my last week. This week again was filled with work, a bit of fun, and a lot of Chris Evans. And when I say “a lot”, I mean the fact that the movie I watched had him naked pretty much the entire time. Now that’s the kind of movies Marvel should be making!…

A Quiet Place (2018)

Movie

Will A Quiet Place do the same for horror in 2018, that Get Out did to horror in 2017? Some say yes, other say no. For me, by adding layers upon layers to a genre that I have stayed away from, both movies have changed my perspective on horror films and what that this genre could really do.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Movies About Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

Having such a dejá vu moment with this week’s Thursday Movie Picks theme. The reason, back in December our Across the Universe Podcast topic was exactly the same – movies about movies. So I’m going to cheat a little and post the same list again. If you want to hear more of my thoughts, and find out what other’s picked, feel free to listen to the podcast.…

CB: O Captain! My Captain!

Commercial Break

Just when I thought I was out of the hole, I get dragged back into the dark pit of fangirling. In other words, while trying to get everything ready before the deadlines dropped, the girls on Twitter kindly shoved Chris Evans into my face. Not that I mind, it’s just… it’s distracting, that’s what it is. Painfully and annoyingly distracting, just like that image abo……

The Crown, Season 1: A Daughter, A Sister, A Wife & A Queen

Tv-show

Nothing expresses the dynamic of the show better than the image above. Together, yet distant, is how the relationships in the royal family feel like. Not only among the parents and their children, not just between the siblings. But most importantly, between a wife and a husband. The Crown does a brilliant job at delivering one of the most important history lessons! All while keeping the integrity and the intrigue well contained in a binge worthy package.…
