Thursday Movie Picks: Non-Linear Timelines

Thursday Movie Picks

The pressure is on, because this week’s theme is my second and last recommendation for this year’s Thursday Movie Picks. When I came up with this recommendation, I knew that I had to pick three good non-linear timelines for this list. Though I do have a sort of a negative comment towards one of the movies, it’s still a good movie. Check out which one I’m talking about!…

Thursday Movie Picks: A Disappearance

Extra

What I thought was going to be another hard week for me, turned out to be an easy challenge. Three movies where our main character is motivated by a disappearance, simple as that. Two movies I picked have the same director, and the third one has a similar theme to the other. They are all crime-related, obviously, and I love crime-movies and shows, which is why I like all these movies a lot.…

2014 in Retrospect: Part 4

Extra

Took me forever but it’s finally here, the list of my Top 15 favorite movies from 2014! As you know, I was struggling with it, I was certain some movies just had to be on it before I finished it. Then, I had to change 10 to 15, and this is the end result to hours and hours of brain cracking. Eventually, I also decided on a different favorite movie of 2014 than I had originally thought. In other words,…

10 Things: Gone Girl

Extra Literature

Tried my hardest to make this post spoiler-free! When I heard David Fincher was going to direct Gone Girl, based on a widely acclaimed book by the same name, I was slightly overwhelmed. My love for Fincher has been fundamental these past few years so I thought I’d shake things up a bit by reading the source material of his upcoming thriller starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. This is not going to be a book review but I must…
