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…

Thursday Movie Picks: Rivalry

Extra

For some reason, even though it’s such a wide theme, I was having a bit of a hard time this week. I thought long and hard what kind of route I wanted to take with this topic, which angle I should have chosen and I ended up with three very similar movies – all feature artistic rivalry. More importantly, all showcase the main protagonist’s struggles not just with being the best but being the greatest version of themselves. In other…

Blogathon: White Swan, Black Swan

Extra

Sati over at Cinematic Corner started a new blogathon called White Swan, Black Swan and it embodies the idea of duality embedded into a single character. In other words, a character who has different sides to him or her, a character that might seem white to others but is actually black under the surface. An idea that is very interesting so obviously I had to participate, so here’s my take on the blogathon with a tiny little twist.…

Darren Aronofsky and I are connected

Director Mettel Ray

About four years ago, since most of the things that happened in my life came with the life-changing moment of starting University, I had a friend who loved movies. We don’t get along anymore, which isn’t a bad thing because I’m better off now, but I do secretly thank her for two things. First of all, I got introduced to my favorite band Incubus and I remember wanting to see Requiem of a Dream after we had our regular discussion…

# 142 – Oscar nominations

Extra Mettel Ray

Another year of movies has passed and after the Golden Globes there is only one big event that puts an end to it all (meaning the last year): The Academy Awards – Oscars. And since I did a post about the Golden Globes I felt that I had to do one about the Oscars as well. Now, I am not gonna predict anything, because my taste is pretty shaky lately due to my school work which would be officially over…

# 129 – Black Swan

Movie

I can finally get to cross out this amazing movie from my waiting list. That being said, I’m pretty sure I’m gonna watch this movie again because it is a true visual treat. Story itself supports it and together they allow viewers to have a great experience with this one. And in addition, you really have to think about the movie after wards – you can’t just watch it and then forget about it. That’s why it is good to…

# 89 – Black (red&white) Swan

Actor/Actress

It has been a while since I’ve done any posts about posters, probably because there haven’t been any I’ve totally fallen in love with.. but then came Black Swan. Absolutely loved the trailer and now they came out with 4 posters, each one of them better than the other. I like the colors, I like the old school art and the way two different images have come together – these just made me want to see the movie even more,…

# 64 – Black Swan

Actor/Actress

Remember Requiem for a Dream or The Fountain? (I’m naming those because I’ve seen them, but there is also Pi and The Wrestler). Well, Darren Aronofsky is back and he’s bringing swans to the screen. Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel, Mila Kunis and Winona Ryder are just some of the names that appear in this movie that seems to be one of the best ones this year since it is Aronofsky who has directed it. What I remember based on Requiem…
