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 […]

Film Grimoire’s three year blogiversary!

Hello everyone! This is a very quick post to celebrate something special – today marks the third blogiversary (blog + anniversary) of Film Grimoire! I almost can’t believe I’ve actually stuck at something for this long. I’m super happy and proud to be part of such an amazing film blogging community here at WordPress. Thank […]

The “Against the Crowd” Blogathon – 2016 Edition!

Thus far, I’ve participated in the “Against the Crowd” blogathon in 2014, and in 2015, and now it’s time to participate in 2016! Like I said back in 2014: Everyone has those films where you think, “This is not as good as people believe it to be”, or conversely, “I wish more people loved this!”. […]

On Location: Ghostbusters HQ

Originally posted on FILM GRIMOIRE:
I feel like everyone had films that they obsessed over as a kid. For me, it was definitely Mrs Doubtfire (1993), and Sister Act (1992). Another film I would watch over and over again was the kooky/spooky classic Ghostbusters (1984). And I still love it, which is why I was…
