Dunkirk (2017)

Movie

Some of my favourite films are directed by Christopher Nolan: Inception, The Dark Knight (mostly because of Ledger) and I also have fond memories of watching Memento as a kid. I even remember being fascinated by Insomnia when I saw it years ago. But then there’s also Interstellar which I didn’t like at all and nothing could make me want to see that movie ever again. So before seeing Dunkirk I was expecting greatness but I also had that nagging…

#MettelRaySe7en: My Movie Alphabet Vol 2

Extra

While there might be some things that never change, we as people still constantly evolve just like the world around us. Our thoughts, our tastes, our opinions – with every new grain of information something in us could change completely. We might idolise someone one minute and cringe our noses at their stupidity the next, we might find a movie absolutely brilliant, only to fall out of love with it two years later. And it’s fascinating to see and compare…

Snubs, Beards and Six Packs

Extra Mettel Ray

Instead of posting twice last week, I surrendered myself to work and just gave up on trying to keep my eye on everything that was happening until today. For instance, the award season begun with nominations, new trailers came out and that thing I wanted forever to happen, finally did on Modern Family!…

Commercial Break #26

Extra

Images: 1) Tom Hardy by Greg Williams 2) Mad Max poster by Andy Fairhurst. For the life of me, I can’t settle on an opening and it’s frustrating since I woke up with a solid plan to swiftly finish this Commercial Break so I could return to my reading. Part of the problem is the fact that I’m having a hard time remembering what happened this month besides Mad Max: Fury Road because that’s all I think about… that and…

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Movie

There is absolutely no reason not to love the fast paced Mad Max: Fury Road! And those who find reasons and arguments against it are simply forgetting the basic fundamental truths that they are either stupid or too blind to understand that Mad Max: Fury Road is the ultimate action movie!…

The Dark Knight Rises

Movie

And the time has arrived, I’m now finally posting a review on this summer’s most anticipated movies. To give you an idea of my struggles to write this post, just know, that this is the third draft for The Dark Knight Rises. It was and still is difficult to form precise thoughts on Christopher Nolan’s end to the Batman trilogy and possibly the end of the best Batman story ever told. Needless to say, I’ve been thinking about writing this…

# 275 – This Means War

Movie

To keep things on a lighter note, I will do a review on this romantic-comedy I saw when I was in Tallinn again. I wasn’t thrilled about it because I had heard bad things about it and usually those bad things happen to be perfectly correct. And that in mind I sat in the cinema and watched This Means War. To be honest, I liked it, I liked it a lot! I don’t know if I am foolish to do…

# 191 – Batman: The Dark Knight Rises (trailer special)

Movie

It seems like forever since The Dark Knight drove into the night and Heath Ledger won an Oscar posthumously but Christopher Nolan is finally back (after inceptioning us) and The Dark Knight Rises. He has added my other favorite Joseph Gordon-Levitt to the mix which for me is kind of weird and awesome at the same time cause he looks so much like Ledger. I think we get a climps of him in the trailer and if yes, then he…

# 69 – Inception

Movie

“Dreams feel real while we’re in them.  It’s only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange.” – Dom Cobb After watching Nolan’s newest master-piece I looked up some of the reviews just to get an idea how to build up my review about it. I didn’t want to praise like any other commenter would do and call Nolan a genius based on my subjective opinion – I wanted to have a basis for this post: negative…
