Looking Back: 10 Movies That Shaped Me in the Last Decade

Extra

One of the hardest things for me, even after blogging for close to 10 years, is listing things. Listing movies in a particular order, naming favourite TV shows, putting performances in a certain row – just any kind of list and I’m hyperventilating. So instead I’m deluding the pressure by creating a non-list list. In other words, I’m going to talk about 10 movies that shaped me in the past 10 years. It’s a tribute to the movies that left…

Thursday Movie Picks: Favorite Films by Steven Spielberg

Thursday Movie Picks

Well, it’s another Thursday and this time I’m recommending my three favourites from the filmography of Steven Spielberg. To be very honest, I had to look it up because for the life of me, I couldn’t think of any from the top of my head. It might be my brain but it also might be the fact that I love these movies but I never think about them as Steven Spielberg movies. I don’t know why, it just somehow never…

Spinning Out (Season 1)

Tv-show

Before I start my Spinning Out review, here’s a bit of background information. One of my all time favourite romance novels is From Lukov With Love by Mariana Zapata. It tells a story of Jasmine, an ice skater who is suddenly given an opportunity to skate competitively again. The catch, she has to partner up with her enemy, Ivan, and learn to skate in pairs. I love this book and going into Spinning Out I hoped this show would bring…

Thursday Movie Picks: Escape

Thursday Movie Picks

Happy New Year! Well, we’ve made it to 2020 guys… congrats to us all! Anyway, we’re starting this year off with a Thursday Movie Picks post. Similar to the past few years, I’m using a new and fresh image for this feature. New year, new me and all that jazz! But enough about my almost non-existent photoshop skills, let’s talk about escape and escaping! Following a self started tradition, I’m also throwing in a theme within a theme.…

Soundtrack: Truth and Justice (2019)

Music

Margaret over at Cinematic Corner  does Soundtrack Wednesday posts and I really like those. I’m not planning to make this into a habit but I figured that I have to do this at least once. Especially since there’s probably not many of you who are going to watch Truth and Justice and you would end up missing out on its soundtrack. Which would be a real shame!…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Rivalry

Thursday Movie Picks

The moment of accomplishment.. the moment of utter joy is upon me because this is the last Thursday Movie Post of 2019. It’s been an incredible year and well, I’ve made through with flying colours (except that one time I posted on Friday). In all honesty, if it weren’t for this feature I don’t think my blog would have had anything going for it. This was literally the thing that saved my blog in 2019. So I’m very happy to…

Home For Christmas (Season 1)

Tv-show

This year I’ve been super delighted to have stumbled on so many non-English shows. I watch them all in their original language so that means committing myself to subtitles. Home for Christmas was one of the best subtitle-commitments I made this year. This Norwegian show (available on Netflix) is funny, quirky and emotional. And most importantly, for me, Home for Christmas was very close culturally so I felt comforted and as if at home.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Child Actors Venturing Out of Typecasting

Thursday Movie Picks

Not going to lie, reading this typecasting theme for the first time gave me hives. It is a brilliant theme, don’t get me wrong, but it also expects some serious thinking. I had to ask Brittani for help because this typecasting thing was for some reason very difficult for me. Even now I’m not sure if I got it right.. it’s such a tricky and frustrating theme because it focuses on careers rather than movies. And frankly, most of the…
