Love, Simon (2018)

Movie

Oh, how I’ve missed good, positive and uplifting teen movies! There was a hole in the market, and nobody seemed to be able to fill it. And now we have Love, Simon bringing all the feels! It’s just another teen comedy, but it’s the first of its kind. It is a gay love story that will make you mushy and emotional for all the right reasons!…

God’s Own Country (2017)

Movie

Not often does a film with very little dialog captivate me so much. Even less does a movie manage to do so at 3AM, and keep me awake until the sun comes up. God’s Own Country, which is best described as Call Me Your Name meets Brokeback Mountain, did all that and much more.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Long Awaited Sequel

Thursday Movie Picks

Almost missed this week’s post because I didn’t plan for it, and then I had two mega long work shifts yesterday and today. But, not to worry, I borrowed some sleep time and got this list on your way (with minor problems) and Thursdays are still a go! Also, even though one of the picks isn’t necessarily a sequel, it’s still a follow-up so… it counts!…

CB: Once Upon a Time In June

In other words, I’m wrapping up the entire month of June – from movies to shows to books to songs! With a bit of commentary on each of the things I saw, read and listened, and links to possible reviews and such. So take…

5 Shows I Stopped Watching But Am Thinking About Catching Up With

Tv-show

We lack the time to watch everything we want to, we have to prioritise and that is why I skimmed down my weekly TV schedule over the years. I just wanted to replace shows with books, and with that, I stopped watching bad TV, mediocre shows and even some good ones. Also, I’m much better with binge watching so sticking to something every week feels too stressful. Yet, there have been regrets, and here is a list of five shows…

Blindspot 2018, June: Brick

Blindspot

The reason I added this 2005 film to my Blindspot list was simple. I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and have seen most of his films. With that in mind, I set myself a goal to watch his lesser known film Brick. The fact that it’s also the directorial debut for Rian Johnson, was simply a coincidence. Turns out, adding Brick was like getting hit by a brick.…

Hotel Artemis (2018)

Movie

Walking out of the theather after seeing Hotel Artemis I felt numb. This type of numbness hadn’t yet happened in 2018, so I felt a little shocked. After I had time to digest this feeling of nothingness, I decided that I was still going to review Hotel Artemis. Because if I had suffered through a really bad movie, I might as well trash it on my blog.…
