It would be a symbolic post if at this very moment I’m at a museum in Scotland, enjoying my time absorbing history. I don’t know if this is true, but you can ask me on Twitter where I am, and maybe, maybe this post is more magical than normal.
From the depths of my drafts comes a movie review I wrote many months ago.
There was an article about Ocean’s Eight I stumbled on, which gave me a moment of thought. It stated that the lack of conflict, which some critics see as a negative about the film, actually highlights the importance of a female led film. It makes sense and I agree with that point of view… but Ocean’s Eight is still a pretty boring movie.
This post comes to you in a panic mode because I forgot it was Thursday. Time has not been my friend lately and it’s more and more clear, that I need more of it! But let’s not dwell on that because I got political comedies to recommend. Which, when I saw this theme, caused me another tiny panic attack because I honestly have no idea what list of three movies awaits for you past this point. Plus, with the current political climate, I don’t think there’s anything funny about politics – but here I am, finding the humour during the dark times.
Like promised, here is the second part of the recap that brings you all the shows and books I consumed during my break. Needless to say, I don’t think I remember everything I saw during this little absence of mine. Didn’t keep a list, only reviewed one show, so who knows what I will forget to mention. Also, I didn’t read much but I did discover a few good songs and had one good oldie on repeat. As per usual, there are also links at the very end.
It’s November?!? Oh how the time flies. Especially when one takes a somewhat unexpected sort of a (but not really) break from blogging. But breaks are important. Breaks allow us to recharge, regroup and re-energise our lives. So I’m hoping to be a bit more lively in November, even though I have a super busy month ahead. But I had a feeling I needed to bring back Commercial Break today!
Now that October is over, I can breathe a little easier. Until I’ll have to do this horror month all over again next year. But let’s talk about this week’s theme, which actually ended up being an easier one. Which is surprising, because I don’t necessarily watch a lot of movies about gangsters.
Sometimes we take things for granted. We look at stars, and we think they have it all. If we were in their shoes, we’d be happy! I’m not saying we’d all like to be famous and stars in our own right , but I think we’ve all had that tiny thought of having it all. A Star is Born’s latest remake is a reminder that life is never about having it all. But about having that one thing, that just might save us.
A little bit weird is good, it’s almost healthy to be a little weird because then you end up standing out from the crowd. Too much weird, and you might end up in a locked room. The fact that there is a very fine line separating the weird and the crazy in the following shows, is what makes them great.
This month is an overall challenge for me, but this week’s theme has me struggling the most. The thing is, I know some of these picks don’t make sense but I haven’t seen any horrific technology movies. So I more or less went with the idea that scientific breakthroughs can be scary themselves as a possible future outcome. So more or less, I cheated, but I had fun doing it.
