Thursday Movie Picks: Blockbuster Flops

Thursday Movie Picks

Last week I struggled, this week, I just needed to do some digging. Blockbuster flops are often something that rub me the wrong way and are usually truly bad. Because honestly, if it flops, there’s usually a reason. Anyway, I’m going off by three factors: 1) they made less than their budget, 2) they are rated fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, and 3) I liked them. By narrowing the blockbuster flops this way, I was able to get together a list…

My Five Favourite Episodes of Stranger Things

Top 5 Tv-show

It’s finally time for my first Stranger Things related post this summer. First, before I get to my lengthy season 3 review, I’m bringing you my five favourite episodes from the show so far. So all three seasons are a fair game but I’m picking just five – so you can imagine how difficult this actually was! Like, I really had to crack my brain to narrow it down to five. But I did it and here is a chronological…

Music

Let’s make this month special and unique all on its own. Here is my third post for my blog’s music category, I posted the last one in January of 2016. So yes, it seems like I’ve neglected it but now I’m trying to revive this category a little. For instance, today I’m sharing you my five current favourite Dermot Kennedy songs.…

Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

Movie

I said before the movie was out, that if anyone was going to handle the emotional impact of Tony Stark’s death, it was Tom Holland. He can act and the guy can really pull on your emotional strings and drag your sorry ass into tears. Yet Spider-Man: Far From Home takes the easy way out. It tries to avoid the emotions and diverts us away from sadness with a more humour filled approach. Can’t say I’m mad about it but…

Thursday Movie Picks: Muses

Thursday Movie Picks

Last week’s Thursday Movie Picks was parenthood, this week it’s muses. But since I’m selfish, I want to make this week all about myself and talk about the characters who inspired me to binge watch a movie. Because that’s how I’m translating this theme – somebody who makes you do silly things because you are so in awe. Anyway, my teen angst muses, ladies and gentlemen.…

The Society Season 1 Review

The Mostly Bad Things About The Society (Season 1)

Tv-show

I’m not exactly the right person to review The Society because I watched only 80% of the show. Yet I figure it’s enough to tell my opinion about this dystopian-like teen drama that Netflix made. One thing’s for sure, the lukewarm hype around it baffles me to my core. This show is definitely not worth it, even with the tiny amount of diversity it embodies.…

Best & Worst Movies of 2019 So Far

Top 5

Seen quite a few of these posts around and decided to jump on the bandwagon. Ironically, I still haven’t done the Best & Worst of 2018, which I think is a lost cause at this point. Anyway, let’s focus on 2019. I’m only mentioning movies that have been released this year. Luckily there haven’t been a lot of misses this year so far because it’s been mostly mediocre instead. Anyway, here are my worst and best movies of 2019 so…

Thursday Movie Picks: Parenthood

Thursday Movie Picks

With a theme that has so much variety, it’s so great to add another theme within. This week I thought about parenthood’s difficulties and the hardships of having a child. Or, in other ways, having a child and then loosing them. Because I thought about the fact that once you become a parent, you never loose that part of yourself. Even if the worlds rips it away from you.…

Trailer Reaction: Knives Out

Trailer

With my newly found desire to blog more often, I’ve decided to just go nuts and do things I haven’t done yet. Like trailer reactions because why not?! Starting off this new trend here on Mettel Ray is Rian Johnson’s Knives Out. A crime drama filled with so many big names and fan favourites that it’s hard to imagine not loving this film right off the bat.…

Commercial Break: Back At It Again

Commercial Break

Well, hello again! I know I’ve been a sh*tty blogger these past few months and trust me, when I say, it’s killing me. But the stress and new work is really kicking my butt. Time management has never been my strong suit either, so it’s a bit difficult for me to balance it all. But let me just try to rock July and bring you everything I’ve wanted to in the past few months. Hopefully you’ll still be here to…
