The weather where I am has been pretty bad, with almost non stop rain. Whenever it is a dat like this, I busy myself with thoughts regarding media, movies and television. Today my mind came on the trends in movie and television that are growing tiresome. For me, reality TV is a real drag as I find it false and overly manufactured. But what trend in movies and television is getting a bit old hat or pointless to you? Hopefully this image of me contemplating helps.
After the fine response to my last royalty post, I thought it good to feature another one. Historical drama can sometimes feel too formal, which is why I’m sure things are often sexed up. And sometimes it is in keeping with various scandals of history involving royalty, which is even more fun. So which depictions of real life monarchy where the sexiest for you on television of in film. I have a feeling The Tudors is going to get a deserved mention.
And on a related note and after discussion with the fabulous Gill, I think that I should host a blogathon on celluloid versions of monarchy. Royalty in movie and television should make for fine posts. At the moment, I’m busy but in the nearby future, I promise to do a blogathon.
Anyone who knows me well, will be aware of my passion for history. It presents such interesting subjects and is amazing to read how times have changed over centuries. The monarchs of old always got my interest for their power and majesty, which has been presented many times on television or film. So which depiction of famous monarchy is your favourite? There’s a good many to take cues from and I may just discover some I wasn’t aware of yet. Below is a video with some suggestions.
I’ve had such fun with these kinds of posts in the past that I wanted to bring them back. So feel free to ask me anything, well almost anything as long as it isn’t horrible or offensive. Movie related or just life related, I’m open for questioning. Ask away my fellow friends.
After reaching 3000 followers on here, I’m in a very caring and thankful mood to everyone. Especially because blogging has really inspired my confidence and openness. So I thought it best to share some of the things I love, which will hopefully give more of an insight into me.
I love movies. That’s pretty much a given considering my content on here, but I simply adore the filmic world. There’s a certain magic that can’t be replicated in anything else. You all know what I mean?
I love my family’s so much. They have been there for me no matter what and its invaluable. I wouldn’t be the man I was today without them.
I love women. Obviously I think women are beautiful, but I love women in general for their determination and their spirit. Women have been through a hell of a lot and deserve love and respect for their achievements.
I love being naked. I’m sure you all know this, but I do like being without clothes. I never used to be this confident, but as I’ve grown, the clothes have just come off.
Anything else anyone wants to know? I’m an open book.
I was glancing over my review index the other day and it came to my attention that I’ve reviewed quite a number of movies directed by women. It got me pondering on the fact that even though there are many women directors, there is still a large gap in comparison with male counterparts. But this post of mine is to celebrate the excellence of women directors everywhere and give praise to their unique vision. Plus, I wish to shine a light on many of the ladies in the profession. And I will ask you all, who is your favourite female director? Which films directed by ladies would you suggest to me? Below are two videos that feature many respected female directors.
Horror is probably my favourite movie genre. I think it all start when my Grandpa let me watch The Fog at the age of 12 and being both frightened and thrilled. Since then horror has been a go to genre for me, as I love the variety you can have. While I would say I’m a horror hound, there are still a huge number of horror flicks I haven’t seen yet. So this is where I ask all of fabulous people to intervene. Which horror movies would you highly recommend to me? As I know you are all amazing, I just know you’ll come with some great scary movies for me to see. And below is my pretty lame attempt at creating a classic horror movie scream.
Many of you may have realised that I’ve been watching quite a few films starring the lovely Drew Barrymore. Although there are some who largely just consider her a romantic comedy queen, from going through her credits I’ve noticed how versatile and adventurous she has been as an actress. And while I’ve always been a fan, I’ve gained a new-found appreciation for her talent as of late from sifting through her varied filmography. She is for my money, quite an underrated actress in my eyes. So the question is, which role of hers is your favourite?
With the weather where I am roasting, I decided to ask about movies set in hot and humid times and places. Warmth and sunshine can be used for any number of genres for many reasons. It can signify romances, anger and even a bit of summer fun. So which movies set in heated places and times stand out to you? Believe me, there are a lot to take notice of.
The main reason after my love of movies for this blog has to be the consistent support of all of those who follow me. You’ve all played your part in making me believe in myself and my ability. So as I respect the opinions you all have, I wanted to ask you a question. And that question is what movies would you recommend highly to me? Which movies must I simply watch as they are truly something special? As I’m always open to expanding my horizons, I look forward to your suggestions on the celluloid that simply must be watched. And once more, thanks for every ounce of care and helpfulness you have provided to my site.
