Have you ever chosen to watch a film solely based on an image that you’ve seen floating around the internet that originated from said film? This was my experience with The Quiet Earth (1985, dir. Geoff Murphy), and I was very pleasantly surprised. I had seen the image from the final scene of the film […]

A horror film that loves pandering to cliches of the genre, Preservation (2014, dir. Christopher Denham) is a tense watch but is ultimately a bit of a mess. Its synopsis is as follows: An anesthesiologist must awaken her animal instincts when she, her husband, and her brother-in-law become the quarry of unseen hunters who want […]

we-are-the-best

Probably one of the most joyful and heartwarming films I’ve seen recently, We Are The Best! (2013, dir. Lukas Moodysson) is based on a graphic novel by Coco Moodysson, and is set in early 1980s Stockholm, Sweden. It tells the story of three girls – Bobo, Klara, and Hedvig – who decide to start a […]

A fairly groundbreaking independent drama with a straightforward story yet complex premise, Boy Meets Girl (2014, dir. Eric Schaeffer) is one of very few films with a transgender protagonist who is played by an actual trans woman. The film tells the story of Ricky (Michelle Hendley), a barista-slash-seamstress who operates a popular Youtube channel, with […]

It’s just about that time of year when I start thinking about taking a holiday pretty much constantly. Just in time for the Dream Vacation Blogthon, masterminded by Katy of Girl Meets Cinema! The rules are: If you could travel to any place in the film universe with any of your favorite characters or love-to-hate […]

Probably one of my more anticipated films of 2015, Jurassic World (2015, dir. Colin Trevorrow) is the fourth in a series of dinosaur adventures that began with Jurassic Park, directed by Steven Spielberg back in 1993. The plot is as follows: 22 years after the original Jurassic Park failed, the new park (also known as […]

I seem to be finding so many amazing short films lately. Here are two that I watched recently, which are very different stories – one, an Irish animated short about life confronting death, and the other, a gangster story about two badass South Africans, directed by Harmony Korine.

One of my favourite blogs is Cara’s Silver Screen Serenade, which has recently turned two years old! I took part in Cara’s First Blogiversary Bash last year, writing about one of my favourite films ever, Spirited Away (2001). But this time I decided to write about what I have discovered is my favourite year for […]

We’re officially past halfway into 2015! Time really flies. This month was a bit crazy for me, but I did manage to find so many amazing things to read and enjoy. So here I am once again sharing them with you all. Metropolis (1927) can be a tough film to watch, depending on the version […]

The theme of the Genre Grandeur for the month of June over at the wonderful Movierob was high school/teen romance movies. For my choice, I thought what better than the ultimate teenage romance story – that of Romeo and Juliet, as originally written by William Shakespeare in approximately the year 1595, but brought to life […]
