My Five Favourite Songs From Hamilton

Music Top 5

Thanks to Disney I finally got to see Hamilton. Living in Europe sometimes has its perks but it also means missing out on Broadway. Though I’m not a huge fan of musicals, in recent years, Hamilton caught my attention and I really wanted to see it. Over the years I heard some songs but out of context, without the stage, the actors and the actual musical numbers, the songs didn’t really have meaning. Now after seeing Hamilton with my own…

Thursday Movie Picks Seven Deadly Sins Edition: Wrath

Thursday Movie Picks

We are almost at the end of our Seven Deadly Sins edition and it’s time for wrath! I thought long and hard what to include and then I saw this: in its purest form, wrath presents with injury, violence, and hate that may provoke feuds that can go on for centuries. So I’m recommending three movies that revolve around racism. A form of unwarranted wrath embedded so deep into society that people are filled with hate for no reason. All…

Hidden Gems: Sam Rockwell

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

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.…

Commercial Break: More Like a Huge List … but Also a Catch Up

Commercial Break

It’s been another hot minute but I’m back with an epic Commercial Break! In other words, I’m here to give a quick update on my boring life and list all the things I’ve seen and read. Honestly, it’s been so long (my fault completely) that I will most likely forget like half of what I’ve done. Which, considering the quarantine, isn’t much to begin with. Oh, the irony of life. Plus, while I’m writing this list, it’s like a sauna…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Book to TV Adaptations

Thursday Movie Picks

It’s that time of the month again where instead of movies I recommend TV shows. It’s always exciting but this month I get to talk about book to TV adaptations! Now, since I haven’t done this type of recommendation list before, I figured I could make this week even more special. So, instead of recommending adaptations that exist, I’m listing shows that are coming out in the (hopefully) near future. Since this pandemic is still affecting our lives and everything…

Love, Victor (Season 1)

Tv-show

Talk about a perfect timing. Love, Victor came around during Pride month and was available to me during my vacation. I binged it in one sitting while puzzling in the yard (yes, I’m that b*tch). I loved the movie Love, Simon (review HERE) which this show is a spin-off for. So yes, I went in with certain expectations. Some were met, others not. Here are my thoughts on Love, Victor – a show that is not just about finding yourself…

Thursday Movie Picks: Period Dramas

Thursday Movie Picks

There is a sense of deja vu with this theme because just recently, in October, we had theme for period drama horrors. For that I picked three Mia Wasikowska’s movies. Now it’s period dramas again and I’m feeling like I have run out of Wasikowska movies so… you’re getting a random selection today. Well, almost random – all these period dramas are directed by women.…

Alex Rider (Season 1)

Tv-show

When my vacation officially started mid Sunday afternoon, I decided to spend my first vacation evening with Alex Rider. A teenager who was unbeknownst to him trained to be a MI6 spy by his uncle. The show is based on Anthony Horowitz’ popular book series and there’s that 2006 awful movie Stormbreaker. But now we have turned a new page and have an Amazon Prime series. Guys, it’s a pretty solid treat!…

365 Days (2020)

Foreign Movie

There comes a time in ones life when they must ask themselves: if life is so shit, why not make it worse? And when that question is raised, the doubt starts to linger. Why not? Why not put yourself through something awful because life’s pretty messed up anyways. Maybe it will help, maybe it will not make things worse. So then you make up your mind and decide to go for it… only to realise that life was never that…
