Hateship Loveship (2013)

Movie

Spoilers are up ahead. Me and Saturday Night Live alumni Kristen Wiig have a complicated relationship, it’s sort of a love and hate thing actually. Every time I see her face, I’m reminded of the horror that was Bridesmaids for me but there’s no denying that the woman can act. The fact is proven by her excellent work in Hateship Loveship, where her character Johanna made me feel quite uncomfortable multiple times, but in a good way!…

Iron Man 3 (2013)

Movie

There are no spoilers in the first half but there will be in the second – you’ve been warned! Following the hype of last summer’s The Avengers (2012), Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) had some mighty big shoes to fill – though some might not agree, I personally think Iron Man 3 was a great follow-up and a perfect way to start off the blockbuster filled summer of 2013.…

Animal Kingdom (2010)

Movie

During the Oscar season I heard something about Jacki Weaver’s previous award nomination worthy performance and decided to add Animal Kingdom to my ever-growing list.

Movie

But despite his long list of movies he has directed over the years, he has still not made it into my list of favorite directors. This, as I tend to think, is because he is the kind of director who doesn’t write his own movies, a…

# 230 – Mildred Pierce (TV-show special)

Tv-show

To be clear, Mildred Pierce is not a TV-show but a mini-series that snatched Emmys for both Kate Winslet and Guy Pearce. I watched all the five episodes in one day and enjoyed it quite a lot, it even motivated me to watch Dowton Abbey of which I’ll be writing soon. Since Kate Winslet was the star of the series, with valid reasons, I’d start with her and her character. It seems Winslet is used to roles that take her…

# 219 – Emmy Awards 2011

Extra Mettel Ray

So I thought it would be nice to do a short summary of this years Emmy Awards that might end up just being a post about the winners not the losers and some of my comments about those shows/actors/actresses. If you don’t want to entire list of this years Emmys go to here. The saddest part is that the best comedy and the best drama TV-show are both totally unfamiliar to me. I should change that and I think I…
