BLINDSPOT 2018, OCTOBER: BOOGIE NIGHTS

Blindspot

RIP Burt Reynolds It’s a bitter coincidence that my 2018 Blindspot October pick happens to include one of Burt Reynolds’ famous roles. Reynolds, who died a little over a month ago, was a film legend in his own right. My first Boogie Nights experience was definitely affected by seeing this man on screen so soon after his passing. But the movie also features Phillip Seymour Hoffman, which simply adds salt to the wounds. Because its Hoffman’s early passing, leaving his…

A Star is Born (2018)

Movie

Sometimes we take things for granted. We look at stars, and we think they have it all. If we were in their shoes, we’d be happy! I’m not saying we’d all like to be famous and stars in our own right , but I think we’ve all had that tiny thought of having it all.

Mandy (2018)

Movie

Sometimes I ask myself, do I need to understand a movie like Mandy to like it? Do I need to know the questions it asks, and the answers it provides? Is it necessary to realise the meaning of the film in order to find it thought provoking, good or at least interesting? I asked myself all those questions, and many more, right after I finished watching this strange film.…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Anthology

Thursday Movie Picks

So here’s the thing, I had to cheat this week and it’s a rare occasion for a Television Edition post. The thing is, I had no proper knowledge of what anthology means in relation to a TV show. That meant I had to ask, and after some help, and checking blogs to see what they had posted, it became clear. But it also dawned on me that I haven’t seen that many anthology shows, and some of them I’ve stopped…
