The titles for these Thursday Movie Picks seem to get longer and longer but I’m not really complaining. It’s just a little ironic. Ironic because yet again I’m only going to talk about two performances. One for Best Supporting Actor and one for Best Supporting Actress. Both these wins are pretty recent so I can easily talk about them. As per usual I left my post writing to the very last minute (add some work scheduling mishap on top of that) and it’s an hour until deadline. I guess I just like to live on the edge.
Part of me thought I had one more day of June but turns out that was not correct so here we are. On the last day of June, discussing three Sam Rockwell movies and trying to find a hidden gem. This month was strange to say at least. Rockwell has had a lot of smaller roles and I happened to see two of them. Needless to say, I feel like I didn’t get my Rockwell fix at all.
You know that feeling when something’s so perfect that you just hate it. Yeah, there’s a word for love and frustration all rolled in one – it’s “ugh”. And you know what usually makes me grind out that word, beards. Really good beards. Because no matter how closely I look, or how many times I inch towards that screen, that beard is not as close to me as it should. And yes, this is a lust post – enjoy!
This week allows three different type movies to be listed and I’m going to go with satires. It seems the one I’ve seen the most and most likely enjoy the most. Spoofs aren’t really my thing and I haven’t seen enough mocumentaries to recommend them. The one I’ve seen isn’t my jam either. So spoofs it is and I’m glad to say that one is quite a recent one.
One of the hardest things for me, even after blogging for close to 10 years, is listing things. Listing movies in a particular order, naming favourite TV shows, putting performances in a certain row – just any kind of list and I’m hyperventilating. So instead I’m deluding the pressure by creating a non-list list. In other words, I’m going to talk about 10 movies that shaped me in the past 10 years. It’s a tribute to the movies that left an impression on me. Not necessarily about listing the best movies nor even the absolute favourites. It’s about 10 movies that changed me or gave me something to think about. Movies that pushed me or challenged me, that shaped me into the person I am today. Movies that, for better or worse, will stay with me forever.
After failing miserably with the Blindspot series this year, I decided to create my own version of catching up. Because despite being quite bad with challenges I do love to take them on. So here’s one I created for myself that I hope not to fail – Hidden Gems.
In 2017, I talked about beards. A year later, in 2018, I talked about Sam Rockwell’s beards. This year, in 2019, I turned 30 years old, and this means, it’s time to grow up. And what is more grown up than a mountain of man-butts?…
The always wonderful Margaret over at Cinematic Corner ranked her boos on Twitter ages ago. And of course that gave me the idea to rank my own. Because, let’s face it, this blog deserves some eye candy! So here it is, eye candy time! Based on my current mood and emotional state (fragile and hormonal), I’m ranking ten of my current actor baes.
I have always loved scrapbooks, journaling and notebooks… but from afar. Me actually completing a scrapbook or even a notebook would qualify as a miracle. Therefore I have decided to take my scrapbook dreams and apply them to my blog. For my first attempt to online scrapbook, I’ve compiled my favourite moments, captures, quotes and winners from this year’s award season!
The always awesome and funny m.Brown over at Two Dollar Cinema is hosting Mt. Rushmore of Movies Blogathon again! And this year, just like last year, I’m sticking to things I know and appreciate the most in this precious world – beards. So here are four Sam Rockwell performances, where he sports a great, and most importantly, a sexy beard!
