This episode might as well be called "Everyone is dying inside". Cersei. Sansa. Jorah. Reek has mentally check out seasons ago but seriously, he reached some new levels of that this week. Also - Sansa fans. Dying inside all over the place.

    The second episode of the 5th season was even better than last week's premiere. It included some truly magnificent cinematography, wonderful action scene featuring Brienne and The Wall's storyline loveliest moment to date.

  • I already spoke about it in the recap and in thousand other places on the web but seriously how awesome and badass is Jon Snow this season? Kit Harington is surprising me more than any actor ever surprised me before.

    Game of Thrones 5x01 The Wars to Come

    By s. Monday, April 13, 2015 , 24 Comments
    We're back! And what a return it was. Season 5 of Game of Thrones opened with a very strong episode and though some of the important characters weren't in this one, we got to check in with the key players. And more importantly - The One True King is back. All scruffy and wearing a furry cloak.

    Ah, how I missed you, your grace.

  • Apparently the aimless wanderer Brienne does what we all feared - mentions her oath to kill Stannis because he killed Renly. I like Brienne, but if she kills Stannis, she is dead meat to me.

    12 cinematic and television gems I found because of my actor crushes

    By s. Sunday, April 5, 2015 , , , , , , , , , , , , , 35 Comments

    My way of watching films? See everything the actor I adore is in. I've recently acquired such obscure stuff with Stephen Dillane that I'm amazed I even managed to find it (and thanks to everyone who helped!). I don't care what imdb rating is. I don't even care what the movie is about. If he is in it, I'll watch it.

    It's a technique I employed for years and while I have seen so much shit (Idris Elba really needs to be in better movies, seriously) there are several films which I watched and absolutely adored that I wouldn't have found if it wasn't for my love for that one particular actor who is in it. And almost all of those are completely unknown to the general public, so yet again let me shine a light on these true gems I found, hoping that you guys manage to find them and watch them:

    White Swan, Black Swan blogathon

    By s. 39 Comments
    For the new blogathon I thought it would be fun to pay homage to my all time favorite movie and one of my favorite types of characters - Black Swan.

    What is black swan you may ask, Well, it has never been stated as an official term but I'd like to think the idea of a black swan/white swan is a very elegant way of depicting the duality in characters. So I encourage you to write about your favorite white swans/black swans, both in movies and in TV series.

    There are so many fascinating cases of character being one thing to the outside world and completely different person in reality - Mavis from Young Adult, Patrick Bateman from American Psycho, Brandon from can choose characters from all the genres and it's doesn't matter if they are lead or very supporting.

    I'd love for this to be also the opportunity to write about those fascinating characters from the psychological standpoint, so go for it!

  • I saw Cinderella. It was so lovely! It didn't have any flying trolls, atrocious colors and money grabbing quality written all over it like Maleficent, Oz or Alice in Wonderland, it had so much charm and heart. I was smiling like crazy throughout the entire film. Oh God I also cried when her dress was transforming and then when she was dancing with the Prince. I'm so old and sentimental.
  • Ladies and Gentlemen, Rosamund Pike finally won an award for Gone Girl! At Empire awards and here's her speech:
  •  They released some new pictures from Dark Places where we finally see Christina Hendricks as Libby's plain mother. This is so ridiculous. Nothing about this woman is plain. She does has a wonderful role to play here, though so I'm hoping at least the film didn't waste her.
  • Speaking of Hendricks have you guys seen that sick poster for Gosling's pretentious directorial debut Lost River? The one with the scissors (scroll this page) What the hell? Is that what happens in this movie? I mean....what the hell?
  • My mom is away on the 3-week long trip which means me and Gustav have to get by on our own. It's tough. I'm pretty sure the department of sanitation is gonna bust in here. I keep putting dirty clothes in a bucket. I think I need to take those to the river bank and wash them.
  • Yep, this is how busy I was. Forgot Matthew Goode's birthday :/
  • I've been kinda exhausted this week - work, tracking GoT rumours - hey you laugh, but March-June is the time for me to be excited and fall into pure escapism, dealing with human resources department - I had to take one day off on the day my old contract was expiring and they kept ringing me on my day off,  I warned my boss I won't be in last week but apparently HR thinks they should be informed too, shall I also give them my freaking pin number and bra size? - dealing with crying Gustav - after my mom left he cried for an hour - managing the house, shopping etc. I managed to rewatch The Heat - I don't care what people say this movie is hysterical and U Turn which is so underrated. The aesthetic in this movie is what I absolutely adore:
  • Christopher Nolan says that you should see Interstellar more than once to appreciate its science. I laughed for 5 minutes after I saw that and then I just asked "why the fuck would anyone do that to themselves?
  • also....what "science"?
  • They made honest trailer for it and it's just brilliant:
  •  m.brown managed the impossible - he wrote hilarious review of last year's bleakest movie, Foxcatcher
  • Andrew finally read Gone Girl
  • Anna shares the posts she liked in March
  • Brittani reviews It Follows
  • Ruth chooses perfect cinematic moments for Andrew's blogathon
