You know that feeling when something’s so perfect that you just hate it. Yeah, there’s a word for love and frustration all rolled in one – it’s “ugh”. And you know what usually makes me grind out that word, beards. Really good beards. Because no matter how closely I look, or how many times I inch towards that screen, that beard is not as close to me as it should. And yes, this is a lust post – enjoy!
The always wonderful Margaret over at Cinematic Corner ranked her boos on Twitter ages ago. And of course that gave me the idea to rank my own. Because, let’s face it, this blog deserves some eye candy! So here it is, eye candy time! Based on my current mood and emotional state (fragile and hormonal), I’m ranking ten of my current actor baes.
It’s been another hot minute since the last Commercial Break. I’ve been somewhat off-center with my time management lately and kept pushing writing into tomorrow’s duties. Now it’s been three weeks, most of January is gone and it feels like I’m rusty again. No worries though, it was all part of a plan. Because Commercial Break will from now be a monthly feature. Why? Well, let me explain…
Here we go, first Thursday of 2019 is upon us like nothing has changed! Well, few things have changed – all new topics for an entire year and a new header image! I’ve been participating since mid 2016, so it’s been quite a while now. This series is probably the most consistent thing in my life, and makes Thursdays almost as great as Fridays. So here we go, let’s get the 2019 Thursday Movie Picks up and running!
I’m going to start by admitting that this is not the first time I’m sitting down to write my review of Wind River. It’s the third time, and technically the fourth, since the first time I tried, I didn’t actually get past the title. The heaviness of the film, the impact it had, it still weighs on my heart, and to express myself through these feelings is much harder than I anticipated. Here are my thoughts, scrambled and incoherent, about one of the more emotionally heavier films of 2017.
May Santa bring you all you ever wanted, and much much more! Even if it is a very hot actor or a fictional character or Jon or Oscar or Ryan or Gal or Jason… Santa needs to bring him/her under YOUR Christmas tree! Preferably naked, or with minimal clothing, underneath that layer of wrapping paper that you can just tare off…
in front of your entire family.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
Last week was yet again eventful, worked a lot and then took the time off to just forget life. In other words, on Saturday I got drunk and went to a club with coworkers, which was fun but I’m done with clubs for a while now. Not because I feel too old there (which I kinda do) but also because recovering from hangovers is not as easy as it used to be. It took me a whole Sunday and half of Monday to get back on track, which is why this CB is being posted on a Tuesday!
Without any doubt, I should have been sleeping during the time I actually wrote this post but instead, I just sat down to fangirl because that is my life now. I wake up, I go to work, I come home, shower, and I sit down at half past one to type incoherent thoughts about Frank Castle and his endless supply of grunts. [grunts passionately]
Imagine my surprise when I walked out of The Accountant and I had only positive things circling my mind!? Because despite the promising trailer, and the premise, I was so certain the movie was going to step into the well known action thriller hole of clichés. Yet, The Accountant kept it fresh right until the end, surprising me with an unconventional final act, that deserves some praise on its own.
THIS POST HAS SPOILERS AND SOME HEAVY FANGIRLING
Since Daredevil decidedly is by far my favorite Netflix original series, I expected to be blown away by its second season. The truth is, I ended up being really disappointed in so many things while, at the same time, being completely in love with one character in particular. So at the end of season 2, I have mixed feelings about our Hell’s Kitchen superhero, his friends, his enemies and his actions.
