Thursday Movie Picks: Speech / Soliloquy / Monologue

Thursday Movie Picks

There are so many movies where a big moment, a monumental scene is all about delivering that speech. May it be motivational, may it be devastating, may it be empowering or simply put, emotional as fuck. So yes, there are many variations to the big monologues, that in retrospect are tiny moments that make a huge difference. Here are three of my favourites that give me all the feels.…

#MettelRaySe7en: My Movie Alphabet Vol 2

Extra

While there might be some things that never change, we as people still constantly evolve just like the world around us. Our thoughts, our tastes, our opinions – with every new grain of information something in us could change completely.

It also helped that the trailer was completely misleading and made it all…

Extra

The title says it all, these are my favorite winter movies and before you start listing movies that are left out and far better than these; this is just a list of 10 movies that came to my mind first.

Extra Movie

The main motivation of this post is to provide a short list of movies that are all about the romance and love and all that mushy stuff the month of February represents to everybody. Although the day of Valentine is over (because I didn’t manage to finish this on time) I wanted to go ahead with the plan of writing  a list of romantic comedies (rom-com’s).  Movies are not in a particular order what so ever. You’ve Got Mail (1998)…
