Two Thursday Movie Picks in One: Undercover & Period Dramas

Thursday Movie Picks

Well hello there. It is me, long time no post. It’s been literally hectic and crazy over here. Most of which I don’t even want to discuss and some of it I can’t discuss. But as you can tell from the title, I missed last week’s Thursday Movie Picks so I’m bringing you 6 recommendations today. This is the first time I’ve missed a week and it actually hurt my soul a little. Here’s hoping I won’t miss any more.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Nannies / Babysitters

Thursday Movie Picks

Welcome to another week of movie recommendations – the only posts I seem to keep up with. This week we’re taking a look at nannies and babysitters. But as it is common for me these days, I’m adding my twist to it, and featuring three MALE babysitters in this list. One recommendation is awesome, two are alright. It’s not the best week but hey, sometimes you need to have a bad one to recognise the good ones.…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Secret Agents/Spies

Thursday Movie Picks

Alright, I’m breaking all the rules this week! Which, ironically, is what special agents and spies usually do. They have all these rules for being a spy, they get a mission, then they go off the map and break all the rules. It’s a multilayered post here on Mettel Ray this week. Also, I’m time traveling in all the shows because that’s my theme within a theme this week. Plus I’m mentioning a show I’ve already mentioned and a show…

Thursday Movie Picks: Movies Adapted from Movies of a Different Language

Thursday Movie Picks

Alright, this week I’ve outdone myself! The thing is, I’ve seen almost every movie listed here with the exception of one. Not impressed yet? Well, I’m listing 6 movies, the original and the adaptation. Which is quite the achievement for me, as I rarely look for non-English movies and tend to go for the adaptations. Not for this list though!…

5 Films I’m Excited To See In the Second Half of 2019

Top 5

We are almost half way through 2019 and, to be honest, besides Endgame and an Estonian film, the movies have been a little underwhelming. At least the ones I’ve seen, which is not many, less than 20. Shazam wasn’t bad either but like I said, nothing but the two I mentioned have blown me away. Which is why I’m looking forward to these five movies and hoping that all of them will blow me away!…

Thursday Movie Picks: True Crime

Thursday Movie Picks

Alright, so before this morning I had a plan for this post but since time’s not my friend today, I’m keeping it simple. Here are my three recommendations that are movies, not based, but inspired by real life serial killers. Which is why Zodiac is not in this list because let’s be honest, that would be THE recommendation this week otherwise.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Music/Musicals

Thursday Movie Picks

There are actually quite a few shows that came to mind this week in relation to music. But the frustrating part is the fact that I mentioned most of them in this TMP Television Edition post. So instead, I had to narrow it down.. way way down… to a single musical episode or a moment! Because there’s nothing better than a surprise musical episode/moment in a non-musical show. And I bet half of you already know at least one of…

Thursday Movie Picks: Interview

Thursday Movie Picks

This year I’ve been especially out of the box with some themes and this week won’t be any different. Today I’m going to look at an interview as an important part of the process of making a film. More specifically, a documentary! Because a good documentary is all about interviewing and telling a complex story, where a single interview could change the balance and the perception of the documentary itself.…
