Commercial Break #19 at the Oscars

Extra

“Talking about that little prick called Eagle. Eagle loves competition because for someone to win, someone has to lose. But the paradox is that true art, true individual expression as all the work of these incredible fellow filmmakers, can’t be compared, can’t be labeled, can’t be defeated, because it exist and our work will only be judged, as always, by time.“ –     Alejandro G. Inarritu…

Birdman (2014)

Movie

For my first review of 2015, I’ll try to write about Birdman. This isn’t going to be as complex and interesting as the movie itself because that would be impossible for me to achieve. Instead, I’m going to praise its aspects that stood out without any spoilers because I went in almost completely blind and it blew me away!…

Actor/Actress Extra

When I thought about how my 2014 in Retrospect will eventually turn out, I figured there should be a special post for my favorite people as well. Just as there are many good movies and shows, there are also amazing actors and actresses whom I loved this year the most. Granted, many stood out at the end of the year where the movie brilliance peeked for 2014. Here are 10 people that stood out for me in 2014 !…

Extra

Karamel Kinema was kind enough to forward me this cool blogathon that is all about those actors & actresses that one would watch in about anything. This idea originated with Abbi at Where the Wild Things Are, and this marks my first “passing the torch” blogathon I’ve ever been included in so I’m super excited. Though many of the current participants have kept the list strictly masculine, I’m gonna give it my best to include some lovely ladies in mine…

400th blog post celebration

Extra Mettel Ray

400 might not be an important number to some but for me it actually is somewhat special. I have been waiting for it for quite some time now actually, the big round number of 400. Seeing the number getting closer and closer just made me realize that I’m almost at 500, then, soon I will be a 1000 and then.. I don’t know. Okay, I might me exaggerating because getting to 400 has taken me almost three years. On this…

Paper Man (2009)

Movie

I have no idea how I missed this movie in 2009, it had all the right elements to be on my watching list during that year but maybe it didn’t end up on my screen because I wasn’t blogging at that time… On the other hand, I’m glad I didn’t see it in 2009 because I might have not liked the things I enthusiastically enjoyed while watching Paper Man the other day as much as I would have when I…

Movie

Those of you who are familiar with my blog already know that I’ve got a soft spot for superhero movies. So it is no surprise that I’ve seen the Spider-Man trilogy with Tobey Maguire as the nerdy photographer who becomes the unlikely hero. Honest to truth, I thought the first movie was great, the second quite good and the third just plain awkward. Since the last version of Spider-Man had its flaws with bits and bobs that annoyed me, I…
