In the wake of the news of the new Doctor Who being cast by a woman for the first time in the tv show’s history, I couldn’t help but wonder – are there any boundaries in today’s world for the Women Empowerment movement? And aren’t we perhaps going a little too far?

On days like these, I try not to do anything that would require too much energy or brain activity as my brain is not properly oxygenated to be able to fully perform. So, with not enough oxygen in my system and feeling half asleep, I thought these are the perfect conditions to watch the new Baywatch!
Chick-flick books about love with the inevitable happy endings have never been my thing. I always thought I can do better than that! Turns out, life can get so hard sometimes, that the guaranteed happy endings might be just the thing you need.. Especially when like me you find yourself absolutely refusing love for whatever reason.. Sounds like you? Then carry on reading and find out through my personal story how even you can fall in love again.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of In the Heat of the Night’s release and I couldn’t help but think how relevant the film still is today…which is.. kinda sad. 50 years later and we are still discussing equality. racial issues, we’re still discussing equality. Can you believe it?
La Mallorquina, Madrid’s most famous bakery gets incredibly busy! Remember that scene from Eat Pray Love where Julia Roberts tries to order some coffee in the busy café in Rome? Yep. That sort of busy. You have been warned.
Spain has been one of my oldest dreams, and inspired by watching The Limits of Control where the Lone Man wanders through Madrid and later on through Seville, I thought ‘hey! I want to do that, too!’ Sadly, Seville didn’t fit into the plans this time, but there’s always the next time, right?
…or maybe you were not, but just prefered not to know.. Whatever the case, I just thought I’ll give you a few fun facts about the person behind all this, should you be interested (or maybe more than a few…) So, if you’re brave enough and decide to carry on reading – nice to meet you!!! And welcome to my crazy mind.
I Am Not Your Negro is exceptional in both its form and its message. It excels at storytelling and paints a picture of America you were probably never supposed to see and which you’re most likely not gonna like.. Nevertheless a picture you absolutely need to see.
I was absolutely sure that the new version of Beauty and the Beast will not just turn out to be bad (real bad, actually) but that it will also prove itself as a completely unnecessary film. Could it possibly be any good? Well, now that I have finally seen it, I am happy to report that yes, it could! In fact, I was totally enchanted.
I know what you’re thinking. That I’m being careful not to challenge myself too much. The fact is none of the ‘challenge’ movies I watched in the past 30 days has inspired me very much. So, I thought, I’ll just give you a quick sum-up of what I have seen, so you know I’m not a total loser. And also so you know what films you don’t have to stress about if you feel like your final day is coming 😉
I looked at him and was overcome by affection. His big green eyes fixed on me. His pleading look making me feel like I was the only one that could save him. Like I was the only one in his world. Like I was his only chance to be happy. His look almost reliant. I realized there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for him. I was too much in love to deny him anything.
Naomi Kawase has created a truly inspiring movie which will leave you stunned and feeling empowered. Empowered to make changes in your life right that minute. That is – if you make it till the end of the film as An really is a very slow-paced movie.
Never give up on your dreams. Don’t we all need to be reminded that from time to time? And that’s why a movie with a message like that can never hurt, right? Nor there will ever be enough of them, cause hell, we need to be reminded constantly! Cause chances are, Kevin Costner might not be coming to save you.
Paterson is one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen. A movie, that truly is one of a kind and which you should definitely put on your list and watch it as soon as you can if you haven’t yet. Because it’s not only beautiful, it’s good for your soul, too.
A lot has been written and said about Olivier Assayas’ latest movie Personal Shopper. I’ve read it all. And since it had Kristen Stewart in the lead, whom I hated since the Twilight days, I was hoping it was the people at Cannes that booed the film, that were actually right. But man, was I wrong. I absolutely loved this film and I owe a huge apology to Ms. Stewart.
