Midyear Movie Madness 2017

It has come to my attention that the year 2017 has almost hit its mid-point and with that in mind, I figured I’d recap what has happened movie wise this year so far. This post is inspired by the popular Mid-Year Book Freak Out tag that I’ve seen around in the book community but since I’m still all about being a movie blogger at heart, I decided to turn it into a Midyear Movie Madness instead. So this is a post that will recap the last 6 months of 2017 in terms of movies, and to make things more interesting, I’m only sticking to movies I saw in the theater!

There are a few spoilers ahead, you’ve been warned.

Thursday Movie Picks: The Woods

This week’s theme was a bit of a challenge for me because the first few movies I came up with, I’ve already mentioned. That does not mean these three picks are in some way secondary by any means, because all three are pretty decent movies which came to mind when I thought about the trees.

This hero’s named Diana.

Thursday Movie Picks: Movies Based on True Events

I hereby want to quote that famous Gwen Stefani song Hollaback to describe my feelings about this week’s theme: “this my sh*t, this my sh*t!” And that says it all really, because a movie based on true events is just the kind of sh*t I go for, and I love these types of movies a lot. Also, I’m hereby breaking my own special rule of not re-mentioning movies because I can’t help myself. I have to do it!

Commercial Break #77

Seven is my favourite number. Not sure if it has any relation to the magical number seven featured in fairytales but I’ve always had a weird connection with this number. I like it, and not because it might feel magical, I just.. it’s a special number for me. So when I saw that this week’s Commercial Break was going to be a double seven – I freaked out, because there’s nothing special about these past few weeks. So I did what I could, I added pretty pictures to make things more special.
