MAY Viewing Recap, Top 3 MSPIFF 2015 + Movie of the Month

Rental Pick: Time Lapse (2014)

I saw this back in October when the film was screened at Twin Cities Film Festival. This film is yet another proof one does not need a big budget to create a compelling film, and a tight script certainly goes a long way. Time Lapse isn't a time travel per se, not in the traditional …

Everybody’s Chattin’ + Question of the Week: Favorite French Film(s)

Glad it's Thursday already, ya gotta love a short work week 🙂 Well it's kinda an uneventful week in terms of movie screening. There's the Bradley Cooper rom-com ALOHA which I'm really not interested in, and I also have zero interest in seeing San Andreas. But I am excited to see SPY next week. I'm not really …

May 2015 Blindspot: Breathless – À bout de souffle (1960)

One of the fun things about participating in this Blindspot series is to familiarize myself with certain genre or film movement. I actually picked this one rather randomly, not realizing this was part of the French New Wave, which happens to be the renowned French auteur Jean-Luc Godard's first feature film. Films set in the City of …

Weekend Roundup: Quick thoughts on Mad Max: Fury Road + Cannes 2015

Memorial Weekend came a bit early this year, but hey, a three-day weekend is ALWAYS welcome. It's been a nice, mellow weekend for me, giving me a chance to catch up with old friends I haven't seen in a while. I also got a chance to finally see Mad Max: Fury Road and well, here's …

FlixChatter Review: Tomorrowland (2015)

I hadn't heard much about this film until I saw the trailer a couple of months ago. Apparently it was based on a section at Disney theme parks, featuring attractions that depict views of the future. The movie opens in the mid 60s with a young boy Frank Walker (Thomas Robinson) who made his way to a New …

The Twilight Zone TV Series (1959-1964): Character Actors’ Paradise!

Greetings all and sundry! Having laughed uproariously over the hue and cry of the media's perceived panic from its Meteorologists, weather people and Doomsday oracles regarding Climate Change along the nation's East Coast. I've also been allotted time wisely used to suit up, dig deep and scribble notes about one of the best episodic Anthology …

Music Break: Not Another Happy Ending (2012)

I've been wanting to do this post for over a month now. In fact, if I had my way I'd just be blogging about this movie and Stanley Weber until my fingers bleed. But that's what Tumblr is for 😉 Ok so you probably know by now I've been obsessed with this Scottish rom-com for …

When I saw this blogathon that Getter over at Mettel Ray Blog is hosting, I simply had to participate! What an awesome idea, and original one at that. It must've taken her ages to made five of those gifs. Here are the rules: 1. There are 25 facts, you have to pick 5 or more …

FlixChatter Review: Far from the Madding Crowd (2015)

I have to admit the first time I heard about this novel was a few years ago when Richard Armitage's character in the Christmas edition of Vicars of Dibley mentioned this Thomas Hardy's novel as his favorite. Well, I remember reaching about what that novel was about and was immediately hooked. So a headstrong woman in …
