Thursday Movie Picks: Interview

Thursday Movie Picks

This year I’ve been especially out of the box with some themes and this week won’t be any different. Today I’m going to look at an interview as an important part of the process of making a film. More specifically, a documentary! Because a good documentary is all about interviewing and telling a complex story, where a single interview could change the balance and the perception of the documentary itself.…

Us (2019)

Movie

With the success of Get Out under his belt, Jordan Peele had to bring it for his second time around. All our expectations were high. And the trailer got us all excited! The pressure built, the movie premiered and it ended up being a little disappointing. At the end of the day I wish Peele took a bit more time off to execute this idea of his. Because Us is rushed, predictable and a little unpolished around the edges.…

Blindspot 2019, March: Stand By Me

Blindspot

Last month I had to push the Three Colours trilogy back, and the plan was to watch it in March. Queue me today, at 7PM in the evening, realising that it was the last Monday of the month. And guess what? I hadn’t even watched one of the three I had planned. Hence the choice of the shortest film in my Blindspot 2019 list – Stand by Me.…

Free Solo (2018)

Documentary

For some reason, when a documentary clicks with me, I tend to watch them many many times. The September Issue being one I’ve seen close to 10 times, and Bill Cunningham New York a close second. Now, Free Solo has joined the ranks of my favourite documentaries, taking the honorary place in the top 3.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Private Eye

Thursday Movie Picks

Another week of me trying to figure out my recommendations before giving up. You see, for me these very specific themes always are the hardest because I really haven’t seen that many films. With my no-double-recommendations rule as well, it sometimes sort of narrows me to a very tight squeeze. Like this week with the private eye theme. Anyway, that is the reason today’s post is like an uphill journey. Starts with the bad, ends with the good.…

Commercial Break: Slay Me

Commercial Break

It’s time to sit back, grab some coffee (or tea), and dive into a massive post called Commercial Break. This time I look back to 1,5 months of movies, shows, books and music. Which, honestly, is a lot of things to discuss in one post. But if I can write it, you can read it! By the way, I’m skipping the life stuff because it’s been a little rocky lately. So let’s stick with the professional blog related stuff.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Movies You Thought You’d Hate But Ended Up Enjoying

Thursday Movie Picks

Not going to lie, Thursday Movie Picks has been a little bit rocky these past few weeks. I messed up weeks, then cold war wasn’t my theme at all but THIS WEEK! This week is absolutely amazing, because I feel very motivated to just go wild. Fun and wild, and just movies I thought I was going to dislike. I’ll not say hate, because I wouldn’t even watch it if I expect hate. I’ll just end up hating them for…
