Breaking Emotions: Fear/Awkward

Mettel Ray is hosting another blogathon! For this week she posted fear and awkward as the emotions. I chose to do both, although the fear-inducing ones are not centered on horror films. For instructions, click here.

Schindler's List
This is one of the film's powerful scenes for me, as this was the only scene where they're shown entering a gas chamber, heightening the horror experienced while watching the film.

We Need to Talk About Kevin
Until now I am at awe at this film, but someone like Kevin is quite scary, as you never know what goes on in his little head of his. This scene basically culminates his performance, and the role cements Ezra Miller's career.

This is just one of the many fear-inducing scenes found in this great work by Alfonso Cuaron. The cinematic experience was amazing, but being in her situation: not so amazing.


The Way Way Back
Singing on a off-key note wholeheartedly...not knowing that someone else was watching you.

Bridget Jones's Diary
Unaware of a theme change is somewhat similar of not dressing up for a very formal affair.

When Harry Met Sally
I don't think the scene needs some explaining.


  1. Great choices and I love your gifs! Yes, Gravity is a great recent choice.

  2. Awesome picks! I love that scene from We Need To Talk About Kevin. It was so sinister.

    1. It's a great film and I'm still haunted by it.

  3. Awesome choices! Thanks for participating! :)

    1. Can't wait for the next set of emotions! :)

  4. Oh that Schindler's List moment was absolutely horrifying!

    1. It was definitely one of the powerful scenes for me; it really was horrifying!

  5. We Need To Talk About Kevin is a spot-on choice - I was frightened of that character for the duration of a whole movie.

    1. Ezra Miller's performance was great, and his character was definitely scary. Really wondering what brought about his actions.

  6. Love to see Gravity on here! Bridget Jones is full of awkward moments, especially her appearance at the family gathering. Awesome picks! :)

  7. Excellent choices! Had trouble with awkard, so decided only to focus on fear. Also have Gravity in my list :)

  8. Loving the GIFs and there's some really great choices here. Good job!

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.
