An Essay: Year 2016 Told Through Movies

Mettel Ray

We start off the year with an Oscar race that has our hearts beating erratically because this might be Leonardo DiCaprio’s year, and it was. He won, he got that Oscar, he held that Oscar, he took that Oscar with him to show off to his supermodels and polish on his yacht while the sun cast golden streaks of light onto Leo’s face. But as soon as the blockbuster movies started to roll in, as soon as the superheros began…

The Place Beyond the Pines (2012)

Movie

Okay, I might me exaggerating because getting to 400 has taken me almost three years. On this…

Fracture (2007)

Movie

It was mentioned a while back that I haven’t been able to watch movies for a while. I mean, I have seen some, but the overall mood for a movie is bit on the down low. Since then, I have re-visited my favorites in order to get my mind back on track. Fracture wasn’t a movie that came to my mind straight away, it was something that was actually reminded to me and I was glad, oh how I was…

# 269 – Movie x 3

Movie

So I have been totally not blogging again, I don’t know why this keeps happening because I certainly have enough to blog about. But to make the “coming up” list a bit lighter I decided to kick some movies into one post. The movies I chose are made a decade ago or even more than that. This feels ridiculous to say that a movie made in 2002 was released a decade ago! Anyway, I had seen all these movies before…
