May Round Up

New movies seen: 3
Rewinds: 3
Total: 6

And there goes the end of my somewhat blogging hiatus. Nothing much happened this month, besides work and the trip that I've been longing to have. The only big thing that happened to me tv/movie-wise is that I am now a recent convert of The Office and Parks and Rec. Besides that, I have started watching Game of Thrones to the prodding of my cousins, and partly because of the recaps I've been reading. I have stopped watching it, however, because I have started to read the books, therefore gaining more clarity in terms of who the characters are. So, enough of my rambling and now the links (that I have managed to save up before I disappeared from my screen). 

For the fans of Wes Anderson, Jessica from The Playlist writes about the best of Wes Anderson's commercials. Also coming from the same site, Drew talks about Leonardo Di Caprio's movies about doomed romances.

Because I am a recent fan, Ellie Kemper's The Office album from Vulture. Also, an alphabet of conversations.

Linking all of Alex's lists (either from And So It Begins... or Movie Mezzanine) at once! Top 10 Soderbergh films, english speaking flicks that need subtitles, parent-child acting combos.

Last entry from The Playlist: Style or Substance?

Behind the scene photos from Jeff Bridges.

What's next for June?
More posts, hopefully.

My Movie Alphabet Volume 2

In celebration of the 7th birthday of her blog, Mettel Ray has hosted the second round of her movie alphabet blogathon! Head over to her site and join in the fun! I participated in her first blogathon, and had a blast writing this so I was definitely in the second time around. When I first made this list, I was just thinking off the top of my head and placed a few things in there for the sake of crossing off some letters. I did end up thinking a lot for this list, and I went with things that are currently relevant to me. I also tweaked the rules a little bit, only because I don't want to let go of some of my picks. I think this list is a much clearer reflection on where I am in terms of my preferences compared to my previous years.

Thursday Movie Picks: The Renaissance (14th to 17th Century)

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week’s theme is renaissance movies. I rarely watch period pieces so I had researched if I was getting the time lines right. Here are my picks for the week.

No, You're Crying! Blogathon

Debbie over at Moon in Gemini is hosting the No, YOU'RE Crying! Blogathon. The rules are simple - talk about our favorite tearjerker films! Head over to her site for a list of participants and their subsequent entries. I had a bunch of movies that made it to my short list, but ultimately decided on the movie that I keep coming back to. That is Disney's The Fox and the Hound - and it does not fail to make me cry. Note: spoilers for the movie below.
