Doctor Sleep (2019)

Movie

Back in April 2018 I wrote that the ending of The Shining left a lot of questions unanswered. Well, enter Doctor Sleep that answers all of them while trying to balance the new with the old and dropping some old into the new. This was definitely not an easy task but hey, I think it turned out better than I anticipated.…

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…

Katy’s Blockbusted Blogathon

Extra

Just my luck guys! After coming back from the hibernation, my laptop decided it was time to give up on me and well, it doesn’t look good. Not only did I loose a large amount of important stuff, I was also stripped away from my image-editing software and blog writing possibilities away from home. Not sure how or when I will get my laptop back, if I get it back, but here’s  a fun blogathon to distract you from my…

August: Osage County (2013)

Movie

Tracy Letts’ Killer Joe was probably one of the most shocking, out there and pushing boundaries movie that came out in 2011 and that put Letts somewhere high in my list until August: Osage County brought him right back down. It doesn’t matter that it had Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts face to face and insult to insult, and that the director John Wells is behind Shameless US, the movie is messy and over the top, never really exploring the…

The Impossible (2012)

Movie

This post contains spoilers but in order to keep you from them I wrote this sentence. The Impossible is a perfect example of a movie that has a big impact with its realistic take on the disaster that shocked the world. I’m not going to lie, there are moments in the movie that will be in my mind for a long time because of its cringe worthy showcase of battle wounds and emotions. Now, weeks later, after I thought my…

Getting personal

Mettel Ray

This is a rather personal post and has more or less a bit to do with movies and TV-shows. But that is not the main point, the actual thing I wanted to say, is that I’m going to be absent for some time from now on. Time: a week and a half, depending on my school work and all. I do have some posts scheduled for you all, so I won’t be totally quiet but still, me, myself and I…

Beginners (2010)

Movie

Before I start with the actual review I just want to point out that this is, and forever will be, the cutest dog ever! I appreciate the characteristics this dog embodies, he looks a bit scruffy and yet, the personality is just impeccable – plus, how is it that even dogs can embody so much emotion? I could talk about this dog for hours. I guess it’s because I just wanna give it a hug and have deep conversations with…

# 112 – The Island

Movie

Revisited this movie because I was a bit bored and needed something easy enough to watch but at the same time interesting. The Island is one of my favorites and I don’t really know why, I think it’s Ewan McGregor who makes this movie an absolute pleasure and Scarlett Johansson who wasn’t annoying back then and Michael Bay who hadn’t done the Transformers yet. Anyway, The Island tells a story about this facility in the dessert that grows organs and…

# 29 – I Love You Phillip Morris

Movie

This was the last comedy of my comedy-marathon and how glad was I that I watched this the last. This one saved comedy for me, in my opinion and not because Jim Carrey is funny but because the STORY was funny! And the fact that it was based on real life made it even more funnier and unbelievably surprising. I had already read wiki’s short bio on Steven Jay Russell so I knew something but I had forgot about the…
