Movie of the Month: The Incredibles 2

I have been waiting for 14 years for this movie to come out and it’s another movie I saw opening weekend. I went to a late evening screening so the cinema was just filled with 20 year olds so that it itself was a fun time. If you read my Top 5 Favourite Movies post, you’ll know that The Incredibles is one of my all time favourite films so you’ll understand why I was so excited when this was first announced and it really didn’t disappoint me. It was so good.

My Top 5 Favourite Movies

My “Top 5 Movies” list is a very hard list to make and unlike songs, my favourite movies don’t change on a weekly basis. If someone asks me what my favourite movie is, I usually have an answer. Once a movie has made the list, it generally stays there for quite some time until a better movie comes along and kicks it off. So without further ado, these are my Top 5 Favourite Movies (in no particular order). Continue reading “My Top 5 Favourite Movies”

Movie of the Month: Avengers: Infinity War

Hey look, ya girl’s back writing about another Marvel movie! Usually, I avoid movie theatres on opening weekends for something as big as this but in Australia you can order tickets online and reserve your seats so you’re guaranteed to get into the movie and don’t have to arrive a stupid amount of time beforehand. Anyways, every Marvel movie that has been made since 2008 (all 17 of them, starting with Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk) has been leading up to Infinity War.

Movie of the Month: Billy Elliot

In April, I was able to watch a lot of movies and I took advantage of some of the movies on Australian Netflix that aren’t available in Canada. One of the movies that is on Australian Netflix is Billy Elliot. Now, I’ve seen this movie before, years ago but I loved it so I decided to rewatch it. Billy Elliot is about an eleven year old boy named Billy (Jamie Bell), who decides that he’d rather take ballet classes than boxing classes much to the chagrin of his father, Jackie (Gary Lewis) and brother, Tony (Jamie Draven).

Movie of the Month: Call Me By Your Name

Call Me By Your Name was one of the last Best Picture noms I watched before the Oscars and it was one of my favourites. Call Me By Your Name is based on the book of the same name by Andre Aciman. In 1980s Italy, Elio (Timothee Chalamet) is spending the summer at his family’s summer house in the Northern Italy countryside and his father, an archaeology professor, invites one of his grad students, Oliver (Armie Hammer) to work with him as an intern over the summer.

Award Show Season 2018 Part 2: The Oscars

*This year, I correctly predicted 19/24 Oscar categories, including Best Picture (which was a very tight race this year – I didn’t have my prediction finalized until an hour before show time) for the 4th year in a row and if that doesn’t mean I’m pretentious film trash I don’t know what does.

As pretentious film trash, the Oscars is one of my favourite nights of the year. As you know, I love all things movies and I actively try to make a point of watching as many movies as I can. This year, we were super lucky that many of the movies that were nominated for Oscars were released in major cinemas around the world and they weren’t just the small, limited release, indie movies so I got to see a lot of them. Continue reading “Award Show Season 2018 Part 2: The Oscars”

Movie of the Month: Aladdin

I know it seems early for me to be posting my Movie of the Month since there’s still 6 days of February but it’s the last Thursday of February so here we are. I watched quite a few good movies in February including Battle of the Sexes, some of the 2018 Oscar Noms Call Me By Your Name (which gets an honourable mention here for being a really close second) and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. However, this month I also watched Aladdin (for the first time – don’t judge) and really loved it. I’m currently in Australia and there’s a lot of Disney movies on Australian Netflix that we don’t get in Canada so I figured I’ll take advantage of that while I can. Continue reading “Movie of the Month: Aladdin”

Movie of the Month: Molly’s Game

I watched a lot of movies in January (I guess that’s what happens when you’re not in school at the moment) – some new releases, some classics, and some rewatches of old favourites. But my favourite movie that I saw this month was Molly’s Game. Molly’s Game is a crime thriller drama based on the true story of Molly Bloom and her memoir Molly’s Game: From Hollywood’s Elite to Wall Street’s Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker.  Continue reading “Movie of the Month: Molly’s Game”
