HIDDEN GEMS: JAKE GYLLENHAAL

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

Third month of 2020 has been crazy, to say at least but I’m not gonna let the world (read: this damn virus) bring me down! So today, as planned, I’m continuing with the Hidden Gems challenge.  This month I watched three Jake Gyllenhaal movies and honestly… While everything else has been shit, this month was the best Hidden Gems month so far. Will it mean picking my first actual hidden gem? Well, you’ll find out soon.…

Hidden Gems: Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

The movie challenge Hidden Gems continues with Joseph Gordon-Levitt (JGL). An actor who’s movies brought me joy for many years. But an actor who has recently been in less movies and well, movies that I have little to no interest towards. Despite of this, JGL is still one of my favourites and he will probably remain so for many years. Yet tackling JGL’s filmography was actually a bit difficult. I had to change one of my initial random picks because…

Hidden Gems: Anne Hathaway

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

The movie challenge Hidden Gems starts off with Anne Hathaway. An actress who’s work I’ve enjoyed over the years but who has been in movies I’ve not liked either. She had a controversial vibe surrounding her during her Oscar campaign. Partly because there was just too much of her and apparently Anne Hathaway in small dozes is better. Also her Oscar hosting gig really didn’t do her any favours. Anyway, for this month I watched three of her movies I…

Against the Crowd Blogathon

Actor/Actress

I love me some blogathons and when a great one comes a long it’s hard not to jump on board with the idea. Dell on Movies has come up with the Against the Crowd blogathon which, as some might have guessed, is about going against those popular opinions we seem to have roaming around and taking a stance against great movies while protecting the ones that might not be the best but still worth some love.…

The Leftovers: Penguin One, Us Zero (1.02)

Actor/Actress

With majority of shows, I know right away. I know if I like them, I know what I’m getting and in most cases, I stay with those shows for years. Two episodes in and I’m still not 100% certain whether I’m liking The Leftovers but I’m almost completely sure that I will finish the first season because I need to know HOW it will turn out.…
