10 For 10 Mettel Ray

We are here, the final post, the last top 10 for 10 For 10 blog anniversary celebration. Thank you all for dropping by, for reading, for commenting. It’s been a hell of a 10 days and I can’t believe I did it… For my last post I decided to type up the inevitable list of  top 10 of my favourite movies from 2019. I haven’t had the chance to see all the movies I planned (some probably top 10 worthy)…

Thursday Movie Picks: Unforgettable Film Scores

Thursday Movie Picks

Film scores have such an important part in creating a mood and elevating the images on screen. Unfortunately I’m a very lousy movie lover when it comes to scores and I definitely don’t pay enough attention. Mostly because I’m more of a visual person than auditory. There are, despite my lack of awareness towards scores, a few that have stood out. These are three film scores that I have listened to from start to finish… more than once.…

Looking Back: 10 Movies That Shaped Me in the Last Decade

Extra

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…

Soundtrack: Truth and Justice (2019)

Music

Margaret over at Cinematic Corner  does Soundtrack Wednesday posts and I really like those. I’m not planning to make this into a habit but I figured that I have to do this at least once. Especially since there’s probably not many of you who are going to watch Truth and Justice and you would end up missing out on its soundtrack. Which would be a real shame!…

Thursday Movie Picks: Non-English Language Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

Every year I fear this theme because I’m bad with foreign movies. When I see this theme looming, I think to myself, I’ll watch some non-English language movies and get an excellent recommendation list together. Well, this is not the case this time around and I have to list a non-English movie that I was not a fan of. Then again, the other two picks I list here are actually quite good. That being said, the pick I’m not a…

Best & Worst Movies of 2019 So Far

Top 5

Seen quite a few of these posts around and decided to jump on the bandwagon. Ironically, I still haven’t done the Best & Worst of 2018, which I think is a lost cause at this point. Anyway, let’s focus on 2019. I’m only mentioning movies that have been released this year. Luckily there haven’t been a lot of misses this year so far because it’s been mostly mediocre instead. Anyway, here are my worst and best movies of 2019 so…

Commercial Break: Slay Me

Commercial Break

It’s time to sit back, grab some coffee (or tea), and dive into a massive post called Commercial Break. This time I look back to 1,5 months of movies, shows, books and music. Which, honestly, is a lot of things to discuss in one post. But if I can write it, you can read it! By the way, I’m skipping the life stuff because it’s been a little rocky lately. So let’s stick with the professional blog related stuff.…

Truth and Justice (2019)

Foreign Movie

It’s been almost a week since I saw one of the most anticipated Estonian films of the decade – Truth and Justice by Tanel Toom. A film that tells a harrowing story of life, family and honor. But while the film’s themes are imbedded in the past, its message reflects the present and asks questions about the future. It’s also a film that might seem strongly connected to Estonian history, and yet, it manages to convey a universal message. Here are…
