Thursday Movie Picks: School

Thursday Movie Picks

With September nearing, school is on many of our minds. For me it’s not necessarily about starting school or having somebody to send to school but mostly the idea of starting fresh. I feel like the energy from summer just gives fall a nice push. Anyway for today’s theme I went with movies that revolve around school. As always I added my own little theme within a theme.…

22 Jump Street (2014)

Movie

No spoilers, I promise. There’s something comforting about this comedic duo consisting of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. They just fit and I can almost feel their friendship oozing from their scenes, especially in 22 Jump Street but was it enough to make the sequel shine? For me, and that’s just my personal opinion!, I didn’t find the love for it, honestly, I actually struggled to like it.…

MR. Awards ’14

Extra

With all the Oscar predictions appearing in movie blogs, me not being very skilled at predicting things, and the Oscars being right around the corner, I decided to create my own awards! The bottom line is that I’ll hand out my choices for BESTs of last year’s movies and performances, and though my choices are a bit limited due to the quite small number of 2013 releases I’ve seen but there’s enough to hand out some great Mettel Ray Awards…

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

Movie

Everybody was raving as hard as Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) on drugs about The Wolf of Wall Street for months before I even got the chance to see it and you can just imagine how bumped up I was prior to the opening monologue. The excitement continued, it kept my spirit high for quite long and though I consider it one of the good ones, best of the best, I can’t say The Wolf of Wall Street was perfect.…

This Is the End (2013)

Movie

This post features spoilers hence avoid this post if you haven’t seen the movie but by now, I assume you have so just keep reading – just keep reading. I knew I wanted to see This Is the End in the cinema right after I saw its home video styled teaser trailer featuring James Franco and Seth Rogen hiding in the basement. Then the trailer came out and made me even more thrilled about this Summer’s big block buster comedy…

# 262 – Moneyball

Movie

This is definitely one of the Academy Award movies since it already has been nominated for four Golden Globes (Best Drama Movie, Best Actor, Best Supporting Role, Best Screenplay) and usually those big nominations end up getting some Oscars as well. I watched Moneyball before I heard about the nominations (though I had my share of suspicions that this Pitt’s movie is up for some awards) and although most of the baseball terms were a complete mystery to me I…

# 237 – Superbad

Movie

In order to get back on track with my posting which has been slow for various reasons (which are probably named in a text on your right under “I’m sorry!”) I just thought to start posting like crazy this morning. Why today? Cause I’m in Viljandi and it feels like a prefect place to write. Besides I have a large cup of coffee next to me: so stopping isn’t an option. Starting off with a comedy that I just recently…
