This week has brought me back so many wonderful memories. You see, I used to do these Intro posts where I just put images from the opening title sequence into a post. I did shows as well as movies but like many of my features I didn’t do that long. Though putting together this week’s post did make me smile in the best way possible so who knows, maybe I’ll bring that opening title sequence feature back (but don’t expect anything). Here are three opening title sequences of TV shows that I still remember for their visual appeal and song selection.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who generally picks a bad guy over the good one. Since I can remember I’ve gravitated towards bad guys in everything: movies, TV shows, books and even in real life. There’s something mysterious and almost dangerous about a bad guy that draws a person in. But when a really good guy, a guy like Ted Lasso, comes along… should an exception be made?
This week I struggled. Not because there wasn’t enough to recommend but because there was so much. I thought about so many different angles but eventually I settled on the most obvious one: conmen. This is a genre of movies that I tend to enjoy more than not. And if you add a fake identity to the mix it’s even better! Oh and in case you were wondering, this list has a few fake identity related spoilers.
Though I’ve been in a strange mood these past few months where nothing seems to entertain me, music has had its moments. A few songs here and there have made it to my playlist and some I’ve played in a constant loop. Since I don’t want this blog to become a solely Thursday-upload blog, I thought why not make a different list post. And since the last time I shared anything music related was last June I figured it was about that time again. Here is a list of seven songs that I’ve obsessed over in these past few months.
Recommending a theme for Thursday Movie Picks and getting picked is always an honour. The ironic part is that I never prepare for the themes I recommend myself. When I recommended Movies That Haven’t Aged Well I had something in mind. Now, months later, I have no idea what I was trying to recommend. But have no fear, here are three movies that haven’t aged well in my opinion. What movies am I talking about? Well of course the ones with CGI! In the past years technology has become so advanced that some past CGI feels especially awkward. And I guess in that sense these movies that used this wonky CGI truly haven’t aged well.
This week we are back with the Oscar Winners edition for the Thursday Movie Picks series. I am, yet again, running late with the post because I’ve overbooked myself with an article for work. This happens more often than I’d like but that’s just my own fault for not scheduling these Thursday posts. Anyway, as the theme is Best Actor and Best Actress Oscar winners, I’ve decided to do a Thursday first. I’m going to list just two performances, one from each category, that have some meaning to me. You’d think it’s easy but most of my favourite Oscar wins are actually for supporting roles so.. there was some thinking involved.
Going to spoil the surprise but I’ve been having a great time with Hidden Gems in 2021! The choice to go all British is giving me a lot of joy. Especially this month with Tom Hardy because I got to see two UK releases I’d missed over the years. Plus, that accent!? So delicious. While I was a little off with one of my picks I wasn’t too bummed about it. Though I guess it depends on how you look at it. Anyway, here’s to another successful Hidden Gems month!
As February comes to and end we have a double theme on our hands. Not just a romance tropes edition but also the television edition. This is a fabulous theme because while I dislike love triangles in general… I sort of love them in shows. There’s just this element of prolonged angst when it comes to shows that can go on for many seasons that elevate the triangle to extremes. I love that. So here I’m bringing you three love triangles in televisions shows that actually worked really well. Or at least they worked for me.
Netflix’s hit show Elite has been on my mind recently and I’m hoping I’m not the only one. This show is a little crazy and a bit all over the place but I love it. I love its characters, its mysteries and the over the top drama that I’m now apparently addicted to. But like with many Netflix shows there’s not a lot of information regarding Elite Season 4 – the upcoming season. So I figured I’d spend some time doing what I do best – scroll through the internet. Here’s what I found and also what I predict will happen in Season 4 of Elite.
Can’t believe it’s already February and I haven’t really reviewed anything. Part of me wanted to kick off 2021 strong and get more into reviews as they are technically my favourite things to write. Starting very late but let’s see how long this momentum will last. First thing I want to review this year is Alice in Borderland. It is the most popular Japanese Original live action title on Netflix. And I’m not gonna beat around the bush – I love Alice in Borderland!
