First of all I should explain to you what Mo-Mo means: it came from ‘Monika talks Movies’, as the main topic here will always be movies.
Because movies are my life. They are my inspiration, my teachers, my memory lane.
Movies have helped me many times in my life to get through some tough times. They helped me find some much needed inspiration when I didn’t know how to carry on or when I simply needed another push.
Films are such a universal language, they can spark a revolution – if nothing else then within ourselves and in our own lives. They can shape into our favorite memories, or become symbols for some significant life events. They can bring us together. They can help us to understand each other. And they can take us on adventures we could never take otherwise.
I believe in movies you can find an answer to pretty much any question or life situation you are faced with. And I don’t think enough people can see that. Sometimes, you just need to know where to look. And how.
Which is why I am here.
I’m here to help you find some inspiration in this tremendous form of art which is my love and my passion.
I’ve had the pleasure of sharing and using this passion of mine for the past 6 years when I was working for an international film festival and it was the best feeling ever.
I hate to think what you’re gonna read here are reviews. I have a strong dislike towards this word as I often feel there are too many people reviewing films and claiming their opinnions to be the only ones that are right. Traditional review often makes you feel like if you disagree, you’re simply wrong.
Not my plan to make you feel that way at all. Although some of the posts could be indeed seen as reviews no matter how hard I try to avoid that word.
However, my aim is to use movies as a tool to inspire you. I want to talk about films and help you on your path through life. Motivate you. Open your eyes perhaps.
Movies are a lifestyle to me. Which is why I’d like to think of this blog as a lifestyle blog. A lifestyle blog with the emphasis on Personal Development.
However, sometimes you need to let that film fanatic in me just to gush about some great films I’ve just seen (these cases will be most likely seen as reviews). But even in these kind of situations I shall talk about movies in a way that everyone can understand without needing to be a film expert. Pretty much like if you were having chat with your (fellow film-fanatic) friend.
But most importantly you’re always welcome to have your own opinnions! Yes, really! In fact, I’d love to hear them! Because you know what? There is no right or wrong when it comes to movies and if a film I absolutely hate has even just one fan, then all the better! Because that proves it’s not been just a waste of money as it seems to me 😉
(My outlook is probably best explained in my post Why Every Movie Matters so feel free to read it!)
So join me on this fascinating journey on which movies can take you! It’s an adventure you don’t want to miss!
