Trailer: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

I'm not a big fan of Ben Stiller, and the only movie of his that I liked was The Royal Tenenbaums. Masked with an ensemble cast, he can hold his drama chops but I've never seen him lead in one. While the movie doesn't give much away, his character seems to be apart from the usual personas he portray. Hopefully, this is good and brings a starter back to his career. If played right, it might be one of those hidden gem movies. The cinematography looks great, and it somewhat gives of a Stranger than Fiction vibe. 


  1. This actually looks rather incredible. Far better than I expected, and I have a feeling that this could be a surprise Oscar contender!

    1. I think I'd have to wait and see more for me to consider it a contender, but it looks good.

  2. I feel like the early early buzz had been that we should expect great things, and I'm totally willing to do that. We'll see what happens when we get to hear more of the actual dialogue, but so far so good...

    1. It looks charming, so hoping it doesn't disappoint!

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.
