An Essay: Year 2016 Told Through Movies

Mettel Ray

We start off the year with an Oscar race that has our hearts beating erratically because this might be Leonardo DiCaprio’s year, and it was. He won, he got that Oscar, he held that Oscar, he took that Oscar with him to show off to his supermodels and polish on his yacht while the sun cast golden streaks of light onto Leo’s face. But as soon as the blockbuster movies started to roll in, as soon as the superheros began…

Commercial Break #36 : Oscar Edition

Extra

Every year I try to stay away from the madness of award season and every year I’m sucked into it like a moth to a flame. This year was no different. After a special year in film, after Mad Max won everybody’s heart, after Tom Hardy gave only amazing performances, after Leo wished, prayed and hoped throughout the year; the Oscars delivered and everybody won!…

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.…

Django Unchained (2012)

Movie

As much as I would want to, I can’t recall the first time I ever saw Pulp Fiction but I’m pretty sure I had no idea what it was about anyway. I was quite young, that I’m sure of, and while the first experience surpassed me with all its nuances, the following experiences with Tarantino’s movies made this writer+director one of my current favorites. But before I can say I have seen all Tarantino’s works (writer+director), I must pen down…

# 222 – Margin Call and J. Edgar (Trailer special)

Actor/Actress

Not to over crowd the blog with trailer posts I’m gonna put two very serious and great movies into one. Starting with a Hollywood A-list packed movie Margin Call and finishing with yet another Clint Eastwood movie which stars the great leading man Leonardo DiCaprio. • Margin Call: This is another Wall Street movie that seems to be a lot better than the one Michael Douglas and Shia LeBouef did simply because it is packed with such great actors I…

# 198 – Leonardo DiCaprio (actor special)

Actor/Actress

I have now decided to pay much more time on categories that are rather lonely and since Actor/Actress category should be (by now) among the biggest categories in my blog I’m taking it very seriously from now on. The first actor special post was dedicated to Heath Ledger because he is and always will be my favorite. The second, as you already saw, is Leonardo DiCaprio because it seems that he can’t do wrong in my book as well. DiCaprio…

# 69 – Inception

Movie

“Dreams feel real while we’re in them.  It’s only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange.” – Dom Cobb After watching Nolan’s newest master-piece I looked up some of the reviews just to get an idea how to build up my review about it. I didn’t want to praise like any other commenter would do and call Nolan a genius based on my subjective opinion – I wanted to have a basis for this post: negative…
