Double Feature: Practical Magic and Hocus Pocus

Double Feature Movie

I’m back with another Double Feature post and this time I’m diving into Practical Magic and Hocus Pocus. Saw these back to back about a week ago and just had a great evening. I’ve seen them before, more than once. But sometimes it’s good to just return to movies you’ve seen and know what you’re going to get. That’s the joy of Practical Magic and Hocus Pocus – they are my comfort movies.…

Top 10 Movies I Love to Go Back to Every Now & Then

10 For 10 Mettel Ray

Happy birthday to Mettel Ray! My blog-baby is 10 years old today and I couldn’t describe my emotions even if I tried. It’s definitely a special day! Which is why I decided, due to the special occasion, that instead of just celebrating my blogiversary on May 1st, I’d prolong the celebrations to last for 10 days. That’s right, you’re getting 10 days of Mettel Ray Top 10 lists. It will be all very random, just like me, and the topics…

It makes sense and I agree with that point of view… but Ocean’s Eight is still a pretty boring movie.…

Gravity (2013)

Movie

For me, and for so many of my fellow bloggers out there, Gravity is that movie of 2013 which simply took us, shook us, threw us around, comforted us and eventually just blew us away…. into space.…

# 269 – Movie x 3

Movie

So I have been totally not blogging again, I don’t know why this keeps happening because I certainly have enough to blog about. But to make the “coming up” list a bit lighter I decided to kick some movies into one post. The movies I chose are made a decade ago or even more than that. This feels ridiculous to say that a movie made in 2002 was released a decade ago! Anyway, I had seen all these movies before…

# 233 – Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Trailer special)

Actor/Actress

This year marked the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 and America still talks about it, the world still talks about it  – the world hasn’t forgotten. So it’s not a surprise that another drama brings us the story of a family, which suffered a loss after 9/11 – the father (Tom Hanks) has died in one of the towers leaving behind his wife (Sandra Bullock) and son (a fresh face Thomas Horn). It is based on a novel with the…
