Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

Movie

Be aware of spoiling yourself! The British have had claim over dashing spy men ever since James Bond started wooing women’s panties off and now they have introduced a new breed of men, Kingsmen. They are, for the lack of a better word, modern knights, who also like to drink martinis and have butt sex with blonds!…

Actors/Actresses I Would See In About Anything (10 Things)

Extra

Karamel Kinema was kind enough to forward me this cool blogathon that is all about those actors & actresses that one would watch in about anything. This idea originated with Abbi at Where the Wild Things Are, and this marks my first “passing the torch” blogathon I’ve ever been included in so I’m super excited. Though many of the current participants have kept the list strictly masculine, I’m gonna give it my best to include some lovely ladies in mine…

Linked 18/11

Mettel Ray

Finally back from my trip and like I have said before, swamped with school work left and right – all while I’m also contributing to the new site called The Artifice as a writer. More or less just lists, trailers and small essay type of posts are planned for there while Mettel Ray Movie Blog stays review oriented. Makes sense since I rarely see movies while they are fresh out of the oven – but I’ll be sure to link…

# 143 – The King’s Speech

Movie

The last Colin Firth movie for me was A Single Man and I thought that he can’t get any better.. oh man, was I wrong! Colin Firth has been climbing the ladder of success these last few years and has been nominated for an Oscar which he probably will get. Why? I think being somebody who has to use his voice for a profession and then portraying somebody who doesn’t have it but should have it and must have it…

# 138 – Golden Globes

Extra Mettel Ray

You guys have no idea how good it feels to write my blog again. After a long week filled with school work and exams I feel like a giant stone has been lifted from my mind. But don’t get me wrong, doing all that (writing, studying, reading), I still managed to go to the movies (twice!), watch a movie, watch two shows (4 seasons all together) and keep myself updated on the trailers and Golden Globes. I know, I’m like…

# 88 – The King’s Speech

Actor/Actress

I can’t remember how many roles I’ve seen Colin Firth in but the first ones that come  to mind are George Falconer (A Single Man) and Mr. Darcy (Bridget Jones’s Diary): he was brilliant in both of them. It was disappointing that his A Single Man Academy Award nomination didn’t earn him an Oscar but this might change.  Since he is so good and deserves the golden boy in his office he is giving it another go with The King’s…

# 61 – A Single Man

Movie

Haven’t seen it and you are a big movie person – watch it! To start, there are a lot of good things to say about this movie, mostly about Tom Ford the director of the movie which is his debut. Most of you probably haven’t heard of him, I think, I in the other hand know that he is well known in the fashion world since he worked for Gucci and has started his own fashion line after that. I…
