Last year, in 2014, I watched 132 movies, out of which only 13 had been repeated experiences with already familiar movies. That means I watched 119 new stories, had 119 possibilities to see something completely different, had god knows how many scenes times 119 chances to be blown away, I was presented main characters in 119 ways but I only wrote 24 reviews.…

The never ending discussion around Boyhood has finally reached a point where I simply can’t hold it in anymore. And no, this post won’t be on how it doesn’t deserve awards and it won’t be about bashing it because it’s overrated – this Coffee Talk is about another interesting thought that manifested while reading Elina’s take on Whiplash.

Behold, I’m back in action because I returned from my trip from Majorca a week ago, it was a vacation long over due, if I might add! Well rested and after spending some hard earned money, I’m here again, not much changed and hardly even sporting a tan to be honest. That being said, looking at my to do list at the moment is overshadowing my less-stressed state, it’s serious business this blogging, especially when you are two weeks behind with EVERYTHING including…

Though the current season hasn’t technically merged into Fall yet, it’s cold and dark and rainy and I refuse to call this thing that is happening outside Summer. So, since I’ve accepted the fact that it’s Fall, this seems like the perfect time to look back at the Summer block busters and reflect on those good and really bad movies I saw. And that one specific movie that stole my heart.. forever.…

Life is filled with small moments and subtle joys but then there are those monumental events that society likes to define us by… going to school is the latter. For the past 18 years I have sat and listened to people, who are (in most cases) smarter than me, for the sole purpose of getting a piece of paper. 4 years of grade school, 5 years of primary school, 3 years of high school, 3 years of Bachelor’s, 3 years…
