Having to list something based on a theme you yourself recommended (journalism of course) is ironic. I’m was excited about journalism at the end of 2019 because I work in journalism. Also when I recommended this theme I had just seen one of my recommendations! Now many months later the plan I had has escaped me and now I don’t know what I was thinking. Anyway, here’s my three not so theme within theme recommendations. There is a bit of a connection in here but it took ma AGES to figure out!
In the beginning I wanted to review three seasons of The Sinner all separately but then I went on and binged all of it in a few days. In other words, it made sense to talk about each season of The Sinner in one post. This one will most likely be a bit of a long one so grab some coffee, take your time and let’s bring on the sinners.
Alright, I’m cheating, I’m totally cheating because this isn’t really the intro but more like the opening scene but since I haven’t revisited this series in almost a year, I wanted to bring it back with something different! Though I did consider renaming it but that would just confuse things and well, there needs to be a system and an opening scene sort of constitutes as an intro as well. Either way, this is my blog and this is how I chose to show this meaningful yet completely simple scene, the opening scene to The Giant Mechanical Man.
Every now and then I get this very successful streak of movie experiences that is such a pleasure in itself that it makes those specific movies stand out even more. Just recently I watched/reviewed Laggies, then enjoyed/reviewed the hell out of Save the Date and now I’m back at it with another indie flick to prove my point – you don’t have to have it all figured out!
When I thought about how my 2014 in Retrospect will eventually turn out, I figured there should be a special post for my favorite people as well. Just as there are many good movies and shows, there are also amazing actors and actresses whom I loved this year the most. Granted, many stood out at the end of the year where the movie brilliance peeked for 2014.
Here are 10 people that stood out for me in 2014 !
I sense a spoiler, or two.
Ironically, being all grown up, I still think coming of age movies speak to me more than any other kind of stories being told on screen. Some of these teen dramas really resignate in me for weeks, months, years even (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Fish Tank, The Breakfast Club), and others simply fall into the depth of all those 1000+ movies I’ve seen over the years. I have a feeling Palo Alto is one of those movies that has the potential, but might be gradually forgotten instead.
September can’t get here fast enough as I wait for TV’s current most funniest woman, Mindy Kaling to return with her hit series The Mindy Project. For the hardcore fans, it’s going to be all about the relationship between Mindy and Danny in season 3, and for the rest of the viewers, it’s going to be all about the jokes and the laughter, in addition to Mindy and Danny of course.
