Five Things You Need to Know Before You Watch the ‘Twin Peaks’ Reboot

To say I was excited and extremely hyped up for this reboot of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks franchise is the biggest understatement of the year. I was probably more excited for this than season seven of Game of Thrones, and that’s a ridiculous thing for me to say. I’ve loved Twin Peaks for a very, […]

Five Things I Love About HBO’s ‘The Young Pope’

I took a week off work after getting married, and during that week I had the opportunity to binge watch a whole bunch of different television shows and films. I also took the time to think and write about things that had been on my mind for quite some time. But the one piece of […]

My Movie Alphabet (Vol. 2)

During the month of May, there’s a great blogathon happening over at Mettel Ray, in celebration of a most fabulous seventh blogiversary! It’s called My Movie Alphabet Volume 2 (since volume one of My Movie Alphabet blogathon happened in 2012) – where bloggers make an alphabet of their favourite film things, whether that’s movies, actors, […]

Eyes On Film

Sometimes there are certain visual motifs in film that really stick out and become significant to the viewer. I was rewatching Spectre (2015) the other day, and whilst watching the opening title sequence with its brilliant theme by Sam Smith, I noted a film trope that caught my eye. No pun intended. What I noticed […]

On Location: Bond in New Orleans

“Who’s funeral is it?” … “Yours.” My partner/fiance Adam (aka Mr Film Grimoire) is currently finishing up a whirlwind boys’ trip with his friends in the U.S. of A – they’ve been roadtripping across the majestic land of America from Los Angeles to New Orleans and having (from what I’ve heard) a lot of fun. […]

My 2017 Blindspot Films

Another year has come and gone, and with this new year of 2017 comes a new opportunity to watch films that I should have watched already but haven’t for some reason. This is the exact purpose of the Blindspot series, which I’ve been doing for two years so far – it’s an opportunity to identify […]

2016 In Review…

Happy 2017 everybody! Like I mentioned in my recent December favourites post, 2016 has been pretty crappy for lots of reasons. I’m not going to make a list (because I kind of already did in my December post), but I think everyone could identify at least five terrible things that happened. As a result, I […]

Remembering Carrie Fisher

I don’t normally write about the deaths of important people here at Film Grimoire (with one other exception). But Carrie Fisher, who passed away today at the age of 60, was an exceptional woman. As a young girl growing up in the early 90s, at the time it felt like I had heaps of great […]

Merry Christmas 2016!

Hello everyone! Just thought I’d make a quick post to wish everyone a very merry Christmas for 2016. I hope you’re all having a wonderful day with excellent food and amazing presents, no matter which holiday you celebrate this festive season. Here in Melbourne, today is a sweltering hot 37 degrees Celcius (therefore 98 degrees […]

My Top Ten Songs of 2016

Well, this is random – I never chat about music here at Film Grimoire. However, I thought I’d do a quick post on music, seeing as voting has recently opened up for the Triple J Hottest 100, which is an Australian radio event and decades-long institution. The Triple J Hottest 100 is the world’s largest […]
