2020 Blind Spot Series

As you may know, I finally got a job this year and, while it did wonders for my mental health and bank account, it prevented me not only from reviewing a film every day as I've been doing for the past four years but from watching films in general. What I'm trying to say is that I sucked at being a movie blogger in 2019, reason why I decided to join the Blind Spot series in 2020, so that I'll have some sort of obligation to watch those classics, must-see, and cult movies that I've been meaning to watch since the dawn of times but that, for one reason or another, I keep putting off.

Thursday Movie Picks: Television Edition: Rivalry

A weekly series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves

As 2019 is packing its bags, I'm joining for the last time (this year) Wandering Through the Shelves's Thursday Movie Picks. And this being also the last Thursday of the month, it's a television themed week. It's tackling rivalries and since I had quite an emotional day yesterday I'm going with sitcoms. Hopefully it will cheer you up too if you have a not so good day :)

Thursday Movie Picks: Super Long Titles

A weekly series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves

Hasn't it ever happened to you that you're thinking about a film but just can't come up with its title? Maybe it's even a word, an easy-to-remember one and yet you just don't remember it. Well, it sure doesn't happen with film with very long titles as that's probably the thing that sticks with you them more, regardless of how good or bad the film is. That's the theme for this week's Thursday Movie Picks and since there's plenty of bad in the world already, I'm going with some awesome films.

Marriage Story (2019)

While many directors, actors and producers blame streaming services for slowly killing cinema as we know it, it's yet again a Netflix original most people are praising these days. The film in question is Noah Baumbach's latest, Marriage Story, which is a realistic, raw, emotionally poignant and draining essay on divorce — a heart-wrenching film that left me in pieces.

Klaus (2019)

Every year, a new Christmas animated film sees the light of the day. And every year, although the story is different, the substance doesn’t really change and hence it feels like opening the same present only with a different wrapping paper. Netflix’s first original animated feature, Klaus, shies away from it as it is as refreshing and unique as it is heartwarming and emotional — arguably 2019’s best animated film. 

Thursday Movie Picks: Adaptations

A weekly series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves

(Not so) funny story. My days, minus Mondays, all are the same and therefore I hadn't realized it was Thursday until I started seeing other bloggers' Thursday Movie Picks posts. At which point I told my lazy and tired ass, "Oh, shoot! I'll join next week". But then I thought, "Damn, I have to work tonight. How about doing a least a fun thing today?". So here I am, with three films adapted from novels I loved.

Girl Week 2019: Birthdays Appreciation

As a closing post to Dell's blogathon, I decided to homage some of the women of the film industry whose birthdays fell on this closing week. As I haven't seen all of their works to write one or more individual posts, I'm going to pick the best I've seen from them. But before getting into it, I'd like to thank Dell for yet again hosting this wonderful series. 

Monthly Recap: November 2019

Can you believe than a month from now will be 2020? Neither can I. Damn this year flew by. And yes, I'm rambling because I have no idea how to fill this monthly recap because there's really nothing to tell.
