Hidden Gems: Emma Stone

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

The month of August has come to an end and that means it is time for Hidden Gems. As some of you might remember, I skipped July and I’m only now getting back on track. I’m also making a small change in the Hidden Gems lineup. August was supposed to be Keira Knightley’s month but I’m going to be honouring Chadwick Boseman in the middle of September instead. It just.. feels like the right thing to do since a talented…

Thursday Movie Picks: Verbal Altercations

Thursday Movie Picks

This week is a bit special since this is the theme I have recommended myself. I had just seen Marriage Story, the one with that verbal altercation aka fight where Adam Driver acting skills are out of this world. And no, I will not pick Marriage Story even though it fits perfectly. But I’m going to go with something a little bit different, and throw in a bit of eye candy like I did that week.…

I had planned this out perfectly (totally lying) and have a theme within a theme where those wouldn’t have fit anyway. So eventually, this worked out brilliantly!…

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…

The Place Beyond the Pines (2012)

Movie

There are sort of spoilers but they are still the kind one preferably wants to avoid.. Before falling asleep yesterday, I contemplated on the things I wanted to say about The Place Beyond the Pines; needless to say, I couldn’t fall asleep for almost an hour.

Okay, I might me exaggerating because getting to 400 has taken me almost three years. On this…
