I would be ignoring the obvious if I wouldn’t mention the fact that April was not a good month. In general, everything just seemed so blah and when I decided to have The Good Wife marathon from season 1 to season 4, I just completely shut off everything else. Now, hopefully I will get back my groove and since I’m definitely going to go cinema-crazy this month (Star Trek, The Place Beyond the Pines, Iron Man 3), the possibility of motivation hitting me in the face this month is very likely.

Three years ago today I wrote my first words that would represent the beginning for this blog:
Hi, my name is Mettel Ray and I’m an [movie] addict.
This post is the follow-up to the most difficult post that I’ve ever put together and to be honest, the second half was even more horrible! I love all of these movies, some a bit more, but it’s still love!
Here it is guys, My Top 50 Favorite Movies part 2 (25-1) – the cremé de la cremé of movies that are special to me AND this is my 500th post on this blog! That pretty much says everything I have to say, but I want to add that: thank you all for reading because that keeps me writing!
This post is almost like an introduction to the actual 500th post which will be the second and final part of this Top 50 scheduled for next Wednesday.
Before you continue looking at this post, remember, THIS WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT THING I’VE EVER DONE! Seriously! Lists and actually prioritizing things into an order is literally painful for me and therefore this list might not be 100% accurate! It was some what based on multiple facts, mostly the factor of re-watching and the point that I mostly went with newer movies. I’ve re-watched most of the movies in this list, some multiple times, and I love them.
Now, enjoy this part 1 of my Top 50 favorite movies as it was a pain in the ass to actually put together – but I did it all for you, guys!
Ironically, the end of March pretty much looks like the end of February – snow and ice are still covering the ground, Winter truly came and now it will never leave. But for a movie blogger, staying inside is pretty much a part time job anyways, so the outside really doesn’t matter at all. And the thing that matters the most at the moment is to bring you last month’s stats and other facts.

Though I was technically a Lamb during the last LAMMY Awards, I was more or less not as invested in blogging as I am now. Therefore, I’m kinda new at the 2013 LAMMYs and all of this is super exciting for obvious reasons. Since the polls open tomorrow, I’m gonna start my campaign for votes. Though it sounds political, trust me, it’s not… or maybe it is but just a little.
Today has been the weirdest day. Woke up, did my morning routine and then, nothing. I was totally bored, still am, and yet, I don’t feel like doing anything. I guess it’s just one of those days where everything is “blah-blah-blah” and honestly, I can’t wait to go to sleep just so this day would end. Despite of my mood though, I still decided to do a Wild Wednesday post that will be totally random and simply consists of ten things I love. They are not even related to movies or TV-shows but hey, at least I was motivated enough to post something that might interest a few curious people.
