This Thursday is the last Thursday Movie Picks of the month, and with this being a year-long event, there’s still plenty of time to join! As on last Thursdays, it’s a family related theme, with this week all about sibling relationships! There are a ton of movies that revolve around siblings. Here are my picks this week:
Part of this year's Cannes festival line up, Woody Allen's Irrational Man features a professor entering a relationship with his student. The cast line-up sounds great, although most thrilled with Parker Posey being in the cast; she doesn't do 'big' films these days. This one I could slightly get on board with, as Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone doesn't look so awkward and 'father-daughter'-ly when standing next to each other. Their chemistry kind of reminded me of Josh Radnor and Elizabeth Olsen's movie (professor-student setup as well). Whether reviews are positive or negative, this one is on my radar; I don't think it could get any worst from last year's Woody Allen installment.
Hey there! It's the end of another month (and the beginning of a new one!), which means we're almost halfway through the year! May flew by so fast that I didn't have an inkling on what day it was so I was surprised when the last week rolled in and I haven't even started on my monthly recap! My movie viewing count is more or less the same last month, but there are huge gaps on my movie viewing schedule. Those gaps are filled with work responsibilities and new and old hobbies. I got four books down this month and it won't be long before I finish reading my goal of 52 books. I caught up with a few 2015 releases - I realized that it's almost halfway through the year and I have seen a significant low number of new releases so I was glad I found a weekend to squeeze a few of those in. So, what have you been up to?
