Hidden Gems: Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

The movie challenge Hidden Gems continues with Joseph Gordon-Levitt (JGL). An actor who’s movies brought me joy for many years. But an actor who has recently been in less movies and well, movies that I have little to no interest towards. Despite of this, JGL is still one of my favourites and he will probably remain so for many years. Yet tackling JGL’s filmography was actually a bit difficult. I had to change one of my initial random picks because…

Looking Back: 10 Movies That Shaped Me in the Last Decade

Extra

One of the hardest things for me, even after blogging for close to 10 years, is listing things. Listing movies in a particular order, naming favourite TV shows, putting performances in a certain row – just any kind of list and I’m hyperventilating. So instead I’m deluding the pressure by creating a non-list list. In other words, I’m going to talk about 10 movies that shaped me in the past 10 years. It’s a tribute to the movies that left…

Blindspot 2018, June: Brick

Blindspot

The reason I added this 2005 film to my Blindspot list was simple. I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and have seen most of his films. With that in mind, I set myself a goal to watch his lesser known film Brick. The fact that it’s also the directorial debut for Rian Johnson, was simply a coincidence. Turns out, adding Brick was like getting hit by a brick.…

Actors/Actresses I Would See In About Anything (10 Things)

Extra

Karamel Kinema was kind enough to forward me this cool blogathon that is all about those actors & actresses that one would watch in about anything. This idea originated with Abbi at Where the Wild Things Are, and this marks my first “passing the torch” blogathon I’ve ever been included in so I’m super excited. Though many of the current participants have kept the list strictly masculine, I’m gonna give it my best to include some lovely ladies in mine…

TDL’s Alphabet Movie Meme

Extra

So Monday was the big day, I had a big Christmas party at work and the Breaking Emotions Blogathon closed up. To be honest, the blogathon participation was better than I expected but I must have underestimated the commitment of blogging since I myself have somehow fallen into the trap of struggling to find time to write blog posts. That being said, I figured what better way to say farewell to a blogathon than to take part in an Alphabet…

Don Jon (2013)

Movie

For those who are frequent visitors on my blog, the highest rating for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s feature debut Don Jon probably doesn’t come as a surprise – I adore that man! I have even gone as far as calling him my boy and in my eyes he can do no wrong (except Premium Rush but let’s not bring that up again). So, due to my affection towards Joe, I decided not to pressure myself into loving the movie and instead of…

Premium Rush (2012)

Movie

Despite my plans to start off the week with a more positive note, I figured to review Premium Rush instead and it most likely will not end well. As I watched this with a friend while I was in Estonia, I guess I really didn’t concentrate on its bits and pieces that were bothering me and I was rather enjoying my time and of course the always my favorite Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Compared to his previous movies, many of them my…
