Despite this weeks theme being probably one of my favourites, I felt especially uninspired. For some reason I couldn’t think of three bookish movies that I like. There are definitely more but I feel like I would need to go more scene by scene for that to happen. Many characters being bookish, reading books and just having a bookish demeanour. But in a movie that’s not necessarily bookish itself. Anyway I did end up with three, one of which is mediocre in my eyes.
New month, new Hidden Gems challenge. This month I was looking into the career of Amy Adams. An actress that has been bringing it for years but whose filmography is not very familiar to me. Leaving out her miniseries Sharp Objects which I contemplated on watching for this at one point, I crossed off three of her movies to find a hidden gem.
As you can see, this is the beginning of a set of TOP 10’s that will appear until a new year will come along (today, tomorrow, 28th, 31st and January 1st) and everything starts all over again. To say at least, I’m very excited to end off this year and also welcome new beginnings: 2012 has been extremely amazing! To celebrate this occasion I decided to put together five lists of things that I missed, I loved, I loved some more, I reviewed and I managed to achieve with this blog. Are you excited? I am! So let’s begin and take this blog from 2012 to 2013 with a solid TOP 10 bang!
This is a rather important piece of work, based on Jack Kerouac’s novel On the Road, which just happens to be one of the best novels from 20th century. Autobiographical story about Jack’s road trips around the America with his friends, On the Road features Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley and Kristen Stewart. Now, let’s be honest, Stewart? I am not even sure about Hedlund and Riley. Who knows, maybe the supporting roles by Kirsten Dunst, Tom Sturridge, Viggo Mortensen and Steve Buscemi will save it. Maybe the three main characters are portrayed with utmost care and love. Maybe Stewart shows emotion. Trailer looks okay, but I really want to see the whole thing before I say something more about it. Although I am already waiting to develop a crush on Riley, he looks like somebody I would develop a slight crush on – which would be nice because I need new movie crushes in my life.
