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

10 For 10 Mettel Ray

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…

Hidden Gems: Nicole Kidman

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

Here we are, wrapping up another month and what a weird little month it has been. Not just because I have spent the entire month indoors basically but because I’ve seen the movies I’ve seen. More precisely I saw three Nicole Kidman movies and I had a weird ride with them all. One of these movies was so weird and so wild that I actually thought I had consumed some sort of drug. Anyway, that being said, I’m excited to…

Tomorrowland (2015)

Movie

There is a spoiler or two here and there. Despite the fact that Tomorrowland runs for two hours and ten minutes, there isn’t much going on that I would be able to grab on and discuss endlessly. I understand what the movie tries to achieve but all these elements like the futuristic world, a little robot girl, scary robots and George Clooney put together just doesn’t work. It doesn’t wow, it doesn’t thrill, it just is and considering the possibilities…

Gravity (2013)

Movie

Once in a while there comes a movie that will simply blow your mind. But it wouldn’t shoot your brains out American Beauty style, it will be that good kind of blowing – pun intended and all. For me, and for so many of my fellow bloggers out there, Gravity is that movie of 2013 which simply took us, shook us, threw us around, comforted us and eventually just blew us away…. into space.…

Burn After Reading (2008)

Movie

I have no idea why I hadn’t seen Burn After Reading before today but I’m guessing I was just stupid. Don’t worry, I’m currently metaphorically banging my head against the table whilst thinking that it took me 5 years to see this entertaining and yet serious comedy that is light years away from the previous “funny” experience I had with Identity Thief. There’s a small chance that yesterdays horror as well as Brad Pitt’s astonishing performance lead to today’s high…

The Descendants (2011)

Movie

So just the other day I was reading Front Room Cinema’s quest to find the best movies of the past 10 years, and 2004’s pick was Sideways. Not sure if I agree 100% but I do think Sideways was one of the coolest comedies I had seen and I actually think I appreciate that movie now more than I did back then. That being said, I was not surprised when I finished watching The Descendants and my love for it…

# 265 – Golden Globes 2012 Winners (Extra special)

Extra

So it is over, another year of movies has sort of passed (since the awards usually reflect the end) and the Globes are given to the best of the best. Like I said, George Clooney had a great year and it is proven by the fact that he took home the Best Motion Picture for the Descendants and the Best Actor! I had a feeling about that or was it just my respect for Clooney that created that feeling, but…

# 259 – Golden Globe Awards 2012

Extra

Before the nominations for Academy Awards are announced (January 24th) there is one important award show for movies and also TV-shows. Therefore it pretty much gives an idea where the bigger Oscars are going to go (it happened last year). But since I did not do a post about the Globes last year I decided to do one this year. It will basically be just a list of those who are nominated and some of my ideas about who should…
