Commercial Break #42

Extra

This week, for some odd reason, felt rougher than it should have felt. I only had four days where I had to go to work, but for some reason these days managed to train me empty. But I won’t let it phase me, and I’m excited to have three days off to catch up with my posts, and possibly read a book or two.…

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…

Fish Tank (2009)

Movie

Before you jump into a fringe about the fact that I’m reviewing this amazing film in 2012, keep calm – I have seen Fish Tank about three to four times and when I discovered I hadn’t reviewed it yet I was very surprised. The movie not only marks the beginning of my Andrea Arnold fascination, but it also brought Michael Fassbender into my life and it is only fair if I review Fish Tank (better late than ever), as it…

Shame (2011)

Movie

With all my heart and all my brain matter, I will confess loving Michael Fassbender until my eyes and ears can no longer enjoy his presence. Sounds a bit too dramatic? Alright, I will rephrase my thought: I think I love Michael Fassbender! Now as we have that personal and presumably very awkward moment out of the way, there is an important task at hand and that is one of putting down thoughts about the movie Shame.…

Prometheus (2012)

Movie

Ridley Scott is a name every person slightly interested in movies should have at least heard of, movie lovers should know it by heart and be able to list his movies in their sleep. But despite his long list of movies he has directed over the years, he has still not made it into my list of favorite directors. This, as I tend to think, is because he is the kind of director who doesn’t write his own movies, a…

# 239 – Shame (Trailer special)

Actor/Actress

To follow the oh so late The Rum Diary trailer I decided to post a much newer one. Shame is the second movie of the British movie-maker Steve McQueen following his first movie called Hunger – I sense a theme already. He is the director and the writer for both of these movies and that’s not the only thing in common between the two: Michael Fassbender portrays the main character in Hunger and in Shame as well. Michael Fassbender is…
