Blindspot 2018, May: Goodfellas

Blindspot

Every time I sit down to write about my Blindspot pick, I get this writer’s block thing. It’s like, I’m scared to speak my mind about these well loved movies without sounding like an idiot. Because most of these movies in my Blindspot list are very much adored by bloggers and regular movie lovers. This also applies to Goodfellas, a 1990 Martin Scorsese film based on real events.…

The Intern (2015)

Movie

Father of the Bride, Something’s Gotta Give, It’s Complicated and most importantly, The Holiday – these are just some of the movies Nancy Meyers has written that I adore and love. In other words, Meyers has always had a place in my heart. And though she still continues to have her own little modern office somewhere in the depths of my heart, I most likely won’t turn to The Intern on a rainy day like I would for The Holiday.…

Silver Linings Playbook (2012)

Movie

The moment I thought was going to happen took place after I finished watching Silver Linings Playbook. It was almost as if planned, it happened and I was most certain that it would because I had seen The Words just little while back. It had little to do with the award feedback but it could have slightly been influenced by it but I don’t actually care. The moment when I suddenly started to like an actor that I didn’t tolerate…

Silver Linings Playbook (Trailer)

Actor/Actress

I have been quite lazy with posting trailer posts because I have been lazy at watching them. Honestly, I have spent most of my days going through a White Collar marathon and the rest of today I was trying to detox from it. Can’t wait for season 4! There would be a lot of other things I would like to talk about but I am certain that it would make it a rather unfocused post and I do not appreciate…

# 245 – Being Flynn (Trailer special)

Actor/Actress

I have a soft spot for movies that tell a story about a writer or writers. So I was especially thrilled when I saw this trailer and did some research – so excited now. Being Flynn is actually a movie based on a memoir written by Nick Flynn “Another Bullshit Night in Suck City” – this would make an excellent movie title but they changed it, I wonder why. Robert De Niro plays the father figure, Julianne Moore the mother…

# 197 – New Year’s Eve (trailer special)

Actor/Actress

Another one of those multi-love-story movies that started with Love Actually, continued with He’s Just Not That Into You followed by Katherine Fugate’s Valentine’s Day and now it seems another big holiday that represents love – New Year’s Eve (also Fugate). To be honest, I think these type of movies where so many stories come together and are acted out by the top names in Hollywood are rather awesome. Love Actually of course out of them all is #1 forever…

# 83 – Stone

Mettel Ray Movie

It has been a while since I’ve shown any sign of life but I managed to get a mild head ache and a case of bad mood (which means I skipped my Italian class) so I needed to come here and write something. Last week I went to the movies again, not exactly knowing what I was getting myself into. Stone was a movie that I knew almost nothing about and I even had not seen the trailer! That my…
