CB: Rewind << January & Monthly Awards

Uncategorized

Last week, when I was back to work and had almost no time to prepare for this week’s post, I had a small panic in regards to the first Commercial Break of February. But then it hit me (thanks to Sofia’s monthly recap), that I could just look back at my very successful January, with all its 23 posts (a record of the last few years on this blog), and wrap it up nicely before I really kick my birthday…

Laggies (2014)

Movie

There’s a certain likability to Keira Knightley that I’ve encountered numerous times in her period films, but not so much when the plot is happening in the present because she kept doing period films! Atonement, Pride & Prejudice, Pirates of the Caribbean to name a few up until the past few years when she was finally allowed into the 21st century with Seeking a Friend at the End of the World, Begin Again and now, Laggies.…

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014)

Movie

As far as I can remember, the 2014 movie featuring the intelligent Jack Ryan (Chris Pine), is my first encounter with this rather famous CIA operative who has been in many movies before Shadow Recruit. Taking this into account, my review of the newest addition to the list of films featuring this character, created by Tom Clancy, is going to be based solely on the movie itself: and it ain’t as bright as Chris Pine’s blue eyes.…

400th blog post celebration

Extra Mettel Ray

400 might not be an important number to some but for me it actually is somewhat special. I have been waiting for it for quite some time now actually, the big round number of 400. Seeing the number getting closer and closer just made me realize that I’m almost at 500, then, soon I will be a 1000 and then.. I don’t know. Okay, I might me exaggerating because getting to 400 has taken me almost three years. On this…

Trailer for Anna Karenina looks amazing

Actor/Actress

Anna Karenina, written by Tolstoy, was declared the greatest novel ever written by the Time’s poll done in 2007, so it was just a matter of time for Joe Wright to take on Anna. I should put Wright into my list of directors, since he did one of my favorites Pride & Prejudice, but I wasn’t a big fan of his Atonement that followed (too bad for Wright). But Anna Karenina could bring him back to my life because it…

# 141 – Never Let Me Go

Movie

There are some movies that I wait for and usually I’m not left disappointed after watching the movie – with some exceptions of course – Never Let Me Go was almost totally worth the wait. I’m not gonna say it was 100% perfect but it is definitely somewhere high up the list. Never Let Me Go is a movie based on a book that is definitely going on my list (apparently I have a lot of lists) and I read…

# 100 – Special Edition

Actor/Actress Extra

Hip-hip-hurray! It is the 100th post in Mettel’s Movie Blog and I can’t be any happier. I have been thinking about this post for a long time but until yesterday I had no idea what I was going to write about. The 100th post seems so important (at least for me) and therefore I decided to dedicate this special post to all the  movie actors and actresses I like. (I wanted to stay out of TV-shows because this would’ve made…
