Love, Victor (Season 1)

Tv-show

Talk about a perfect timing. Love, Victor came around during Pride month and was available to me during my vacation. I binged it in one sitting while puzzling in the yard (yes, I’m that b*tch). I loved the movie Love, Simon (review HERE) which this show is a spin-off for. So yes, I went in with certain expectations. Some were met, others not. Here are my thoughts on Love, Victor – a show that is not just about finding yourself…

Thursday Movie Picks: Period Dramas

Thursday Movie Picks

There is a sense of deja vu with this theme because just recently, in October, we had theme for period drama horrors. For that I picked three Mia Wasikowska’s movies. Now it’s period dramas again and I’m feeling like I have run out of Wasikowska movies so… you’re getting a random selection today. Well, almost random – all these period dramas are directed by women.…

Alex Rider (Season 1)

Tv-show

When my vacation officially started mid Sunday afternoon, I decided to spend my first vacation evening with Alex Rider. A teenager who was unbeknownst to him trained to be a MI6 spy by his uncle. The show is based on Anthony Horowitz’ popular book series and there’s that 2006 awful movie Stormbreaker. But now we have turned a new page and have an Amazon Prime series. Guys, it’s a pretty solid treat!…

365 Days (2020)

Foreign Movie

There comes a time in ones life when they must ask themselves: if life is so shit, why not make it worse? And when that question is raised, the doubt starts to linger. Why not? Why not put yourself through something awful because life’s pretty messed up anyways. Maybe it will help, maybe it will not make things worse. So then you make up your mind and decide to go for it… only to realise that life was never that…

Thursday Movie Picks: Prequels

Thursday Movie Picks

Part of me feels very uninspired by this week’s theme because I’m not much for sequels nor prequels. They tend to be made for money purposes only these days. At least that’s how I see it. But that in mind, I do think there are a few decent prequels out there so I’ve listed three here. One is a bit weaker than the others but still better than most prequels I know of. No theme within a theme this week…

Thursday Movie Picks Seven Deadly Sins Edition: Sloth

Thursday Movie Picks

We are closing in on the last seventh deadly sin and this week we are looking more closely at sloth. This feels too close to home because I’ve been feeling like a sloth these past few months. Not really exiting the house, staying in and feeling like doing nothing even while maintaining a full time job. Anyway, I tried to go with another theme within a theme for this one and ended up with four picks instead of three. That…

Hidden Gems: Brad Pitt

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

There were a few hours left of May when I sat down to write this. Not because I didn’t want to, or that I kept putting it off… I was simply very busy and this month had a very crazy start.  But I didn’t want to miss the deadline so here I am. If this sounds coherent or has some typos, it’s because I didn’t have time to proof read it. Anyway, it’s the fifth Hidden Gem of 2020. Almost…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Competitive Reality Shows

Thursday Movie Picks

This week I felt like not aiming for a theme within a theme because all three of these are completely different. These are the three competitive reality shows I’ve watched more than a season worth, followed almost religiously at some point and all that I’ve lost interest in at the moment. So, I guess I do have a theme within a theme for this week. Anyway, these competitive reality shows are not even in the same ball park. They are…

Thursday Movie Picks: Great Final Films of Actors/Actresses

Thursday Movie Picks

This was a very difficult theme for me. Especially since I have not seen many classics and I think these would yield the most possible great final films for actors and actresses. Still, there have been, and sadly there will always be “final films” for talented actors and actresses. I figure I should watch The Crow (as I think I would like it) but for now, it couldn’t have been mentioned. Also, just to clarify, when movies are released posthumously,…

Thursday Movie Picks: Girls’ Trip

Thursday Movie Picks

The fact that we can’t go on a girls’ trip right at this very moment is sad… That feeling of being cooped up and not having the option to go anywhere without feeling anxious is constant – it’s pretty fucked up. So much so that instead of good movies this week, I’m recommending you bad ones. Cause honestly, I could not think about the good girls’ trip movies at this moment. It would be too sad. Common for all these,…
