When British filmmaker Sir Steve McQueen makes a film, you pay attention. McQueen has quietly become one of the best directors of his generation with critical darlings such as the perhaps underseen Michael Fassbender-led films Hunger and Shame, the Oscar-winning Solomon Northup-biopic 12 Years a Slave, and his 2018 heist film Widows, which did not get the awards attention it deserved. In 2020, McQueen released a collection of films — an anthology — titled Small Axe at film festivals and later on, for example, BBC or Prime Video (on the Danish Broadcasting Corporation’s streaming service in my territory).Continue reading “REVIEWS: Steve McQueen’s ‘Small Axe’ Film Series (2020)”
This post is filled with spoilers for Avengers: Endgame. Do not, I repeat, do not read this list until you’ve seen Avengers: Endgame. Full spoilers below.
Okay, so we’ve all seen the movie right? I think right about now is a good time to actually talk about the little nods or references that were particularly fun or strong in Endgame. However, if you’ve not yet seen the film, then don’t worry at all, the article will be ready when you are. Anyhoo, the following is an unranked list of easter eggs, callbacks, and references that stood out to me. Let’s get to it.
It’s about time for the third annual I’m Jeffrey Rex Awards! Writing it like that makes it sound super silly and serious all at the same time – don’t worry, I realize that! This year there are a total of 18 awards or titles. Each title has a maximum number of five nominees, and a minimum of three.
Today, in this post, I’m revealing the entire list of nominees, before returning with the official IJR Awards 2015 presentation on Monday the 21st of December. I had considered presenting the titles on the 18th of December, but due to the fact that I want spoilers for The Force Awakens to stay at a minimum on this site, I will not give myself the possibility of speaking in spoiler-language until the Monday after its release.
Speaking of Star Wars, I’ll be seeing it on the 16th of December, and due to the franchise’s place in my heart I’ll reserve a spot in each relevant category for The Force Awakens. Continue reading “I’m Jeffrey Rex Awards 2015: Nominations Announced”
Hamlindigo Blue? Seriously? – The fourth episode of the first season of the new AMC-hit Better Call Saul gives us a proper introduction to Slippin’ Jimmy McGill. The secretive attorney from Breaking Bad was full-on con-man in the episode Hero, wherein we saw a great flashback – and the original nature of Jimmy. Continue reading “REVIEW: Better Call Saul – “Hero””
Hey there! So in honor of the fact that Yahoo! is premiering the sixth season of Community on Yahoo! Screen in just under a month, I decided to hand out grades for each episode that I rewatched these last few months – and today release a Top 5 list of the episodes that were broadcasted on NBC in the U.S..
As a sidenote, I’d also like to add here in the beginning of the post that a fellow Community-fan is currently in the process of writing full written reviews of Community episodes over on his blog.
These short descriptions won’t be full written reviews – I’ll leave that for someone else – but they act as a brief explanation of why I love that specific episode and why I view it as a masterpiece. Continue reading “Top 5 NBC-Era ‘Community’ Episodes”
Lately I’ve been thinking about this blog. A huge chunck of it is very much about what I like – and about what I think. But with that having been said, none of it is very personal. The closest thing to personal I’ve ever done have been my New Year’s Speeches – which I hope to continue for a very long time. So, today, I’ve decided to come up with 25 things you guys don’t know about me. I’ll try to steer clear of things already mentioned on the blog, but if I mention something you already knew, then please let me know. So, without further ado… Continue reading “25 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me”
So, a buddy of mine showed me the full list of nominees for the Emmys this year – and though I disagreed with some of them, I feel that it probably highlights the balance of television right now… There is none. Television today is either of an extreme level, sometimes superseding the effect of movies – or a poor one, either due to bad overused CGI, horrible writing or basic directing.
