Hidden Gems: Chris Evans

You knew I was going to leave Chris Evans last in this Hidden Gems adventure I had this year. Though I eventually had to squeeze two in one month, it all turned out well. The choices for December, Chris and Adam (who you read about yesterday, hopefully), were brilliant in terms of viewing pleasure. Leaving Hidden Gems with Chris Evans last was also a good decision. I ended on a relatively good note – that’s what I’m basically saying.

Top 10 Captain America Moments I Love to Think About (a Lot)

To redeem myself from the fact that I didn’t use any Chris Evans images to create the features for this series (I’M SO SORRY, I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WAS THINKING), I’m dedicating an entire post to the man. The man being Chris Evans and his beloved Marvel character, Captain America. As many of you might know already, I’m a huge fan of Evans as well as Captain America – who also happens to be my favourite superhero. Duh. So without further ado, here are my 10 favourite Captain America moments for 10 For 10.

Top 10 Movie & Tv-Show Beards That Are So Perfect That UGH

You know that feeling when something’s so perfect that you just hate it. Yeah, there’s a word for love and frustration all rolled in one – it’s “ugh”. And you know what usually makes me grind out that word, beards. Really good beards. Because no matter how closely I look, or how many times I inch towards that screen, that beard is not as close to me as it should. And yes, this is a lust post – enjoy!

Top 10 Movies I Love to Go Back to Every Now & Then

Happy birthday to Mettel Ray! My blog-baby is 10 years old today and I couldn’t describe my emotions even if I tried. It’s definitely a special day! Which is why I decided, due to the special occasion, that instead of just celebrating my blogiversary on May 1st, I’d prolong the celebrations to last for 10 days. That’s right, you’re getting 10 days of Mettel Ray Top 10 lists. It will be all very random, just like me, and the topics will range from movies, shows, music, books etc. First up, probably the hardest list I had to compile because there are a lot of movies I rewatch… but here are 10 movies that I love to go back to every now and then.

Looking Back: 10 Movies That Shaped Me in the Last Decade

One of the hardest things for me, even after blogging for close to 10 years, is listing things. Listing movies in a particular order, naming favourite TV shows, putting performances in a certain row – just any kind of list and I’m hyperventilating. So instead I’m deluding the pressure by creating a non-list list. In other words, I’m going to talk about 10 movies that shaped me in the past 10 years. It’s a tribute to the movies that left an impression on me. Not necessarily about listing the best movies nor even the absolute favourites. It’s about 10 movies that changed me or gave me something to think about. Movies that pushed me or challenged me, that shaped me into the person I am today. Movies that, for better or worse, will stay with me forever.

CB: Two + Two Weeks Worth of News & Rambles

Sitting down to write these weekly posts (sometimes cramping two or three weeks into one post, this time including an unpublished CB draft!), I always struggle to remember what I have been up to. Good thing I log almost everything into online platforms, such as Letterboxd and Goodreads. Now I only need to start keep track of my shows better, and I’m good to go. Anyway, here are two+two weeks worth of rambles.
