April was another quiet month here at Film Grimoire, but I like to think of it as having a nice rest before Game of Thones starts and I type my fingers into oblivion as I rant about the episodes forever and ever. April was a pretty amazing month in terms of not just Game of Thrones returning, but also the fact that myself and my partner got engaged! (This guy.) Neither of us particularly enjoy weddings though so I’m not quite sure how that’s going to happen.
Anyway, here are some posts that I absolutely loved this month!
John Michael of The Sixth Station keeps knocking it out of the park with beautiful posts. His posts on Under the Skin and It Follows, and on stumbling upon films that just seem made for you, were wonderful.
One of my favourite things in the entire world is this techno remix of Christian Bale yelling at a lighting technician (there’s swearing in that, just in case you’re not a fan). It was such a happy surprise to see that Emma of emmakwall (knows it all) and Jake of That Other Critic collaborated on a hilarious post about Bale’s freak out, the general failure of Terminator: Salvation (2009), and the cultural significance of Bale’s rant. So good.
Alina of Literary Vittles shared some beautiful photos and tales of her hiking adventures at Tunnel Falls. It is said that hiking around waterfalls reminds you of how insignificant your own little life is in the grand scheme of things. Alina’s nature posts always inspire me to get out and see more of the landscape where I live.
Brian of Hard Ticket to Home Video wrote a post this month that I think everyone can relate to – an analysis of the reasons why the son in Hook (1991) is the absolute worst, as evidenced by the scene in the film where he’s chucking a baseball around in an airplane. The absolute worst. That scene always makes me feel super anxious and it only serves to make the kid look annoying.
Since it’s Game of Thrones season, here is a little collection of Thrones things I loved:
- Screenkicker interviewed Kerry Ingram (Shireen Baratheon)! She seems lovely. This was great.
- Sati of Cinematic Corner recapped and reviewed episode one in typical amazing fashion.
So those are the fun things I enjoyed this month. What did you like this month? Feel free to share below!
