Oscar Best Picture Nominees 2020: My Thoughts and Reviews

IMG_8676

Hello all,

AWARD SEASON. If you know me, you know this is my favourite time of the year! It is the time I find some of my favourite movies and get really critical on what I like and don’t like in film. It is a time where we reflect and give praise to the best in film and TV from the past year. 2019 was a pretty dry year for me, in that I did not spend a great deal of my time watching movies or TV. My number of movies watched during the year was down significantly from 2018. I am not really sure why if I am honest, I guess not as many movies took my interest as they have previous years and those which I did, were often those which I found out about after their cinematic release. However, just because my year in film wasn’t as exciting, that doesn’t discount the great year in film that was had in 2019.

Movie & TV Wrap-up: June 2019

Today I am coming to you with my movie and TV wrap-up for June 2019, which is about a week behind us at this point. The reason I am writing this post so late in the next month is because as you probably saw, I was in New Zealand from the 22nd of June to the 5th July! Onto the movies and TV shows though. This past month was a great month for the big and small screen, which produced some really engaging, emotionally powerful and fun productions! It was definitely far better than last months catastrophe-of-a-month. I won’t ramble on about my pointless generalised opinions though – instead I will delve right into the juicy opinions on this months best and worst of film and TV.

Movie & TV Wrap-up: April-May 2019

Happy June. Can I just start by giving an apology and reason for why I have been so inactive on here lately. For starters; I have been so busy with university. It is the end of the semester (as you read this, I will have finished the semester and all my exams completely) and I have just been studying and getting my life in order. In my spare time I have been catching up on some movies and TV shows rather than blogging, which for the purpose of this post is a good thing. Basically I have been really wanting to start up monthly wrap up reviews of the movies and TV shows I get around to watching during each month (or in this case, the past two months). I used to do this series on my other blog Salt Currents, but stopped and began to do small reviews on my instagram stories, which ended up being way more successful than I had anticipated. I always got messages from people asking for recommendations and wanting to discuss movies or series with me, which I loved! However, it just got a bit hard to keep them all in one place, as my highlights were getting crammed from so many reviews. So instead, I have decided I will start writing short reviews here on my blog again. Continue reading “Movie & TV Wrap-up: April-May 2019”
