    20 Books of 2020 (Part 2)

    20 Books of 2020 (Part 2)

    I have been up on my usual reading antics and I can tell you that part 2, numbers 21-40 is finished and we will be going through them just as we went through part 1 here: https://vocal.media/geeks/my-first-20-books-of-2020. So without me explaining too much I just want to say how I'm doing it 20 by 20 instead of shoving it all on at the end of the year and it adding up to 400 or something stupid like that and so here we are. You may see some surprises and you may not, but I'm trying to read wider into cultures now, so hopefully it's working. If you want to know more about my reading antics then follow my Instagram: @anniethebritindian. Also, if you could write me a message that you've seen the articles and that's why you're following that would be great.

    A Filmmaker's Review: "The Stepfather" (2009)

    A Filmmaker's Review: "The Stepfather" (2009)

    This is the worst rating I have given a movie so far and I'm gonna tell you why. When I think a film is absolutely terrible I normally watch it one more time at a different time and place in order to see whether it was me thinking it was awful or maybe I was just not in the mood for that movie. Well, I watched this three times just to make sure and no, it's just a god awful movie. Here's a bit of the history of me and this movie...

    A Filmmaker's Review: "Two Popes" (2019)

    A Filmmaker's Review: "Two Popes" (2019)

    Now let's start with a new film instead of ones I have seen countless times before. I don't know what possessed me to see this film but I was always interested in it from the moment I knew what it was about. Based on a very recent event (the abdication of Benedict XVI) - it takes into account all the things that went wrong during his reign as the head of the church. From someone who remembers the death of John Paul II, there is a lot to be said about the decline and fall of the modern Catholic Church. But what this film focuses on is the way in which Benedict XVI abdicated and the man who took his place - Pope Francis, the current Pope.

    A Filmmaker's Review: "Albert Nobbs" (2011)

    A Filmmaker's Review: "Albert Nobbs" (2011)

    I initially didn't think too much of this film when it first came out, I thought it was just yet another period drama. But how wrong I was... This film is a modern masterpiece of disguise and intrigue, a film of secrecy and darkness. There is something incredibly tense about this film that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout even the every day life of the manor. The tagline is spoken almost as part of the dialogue in the film when the doctor speaks to Albert and says "We are all disguised as ourselves..." that's more of a realisation moment by the audience. But let's move on to the review for now...

    A Filmmaker's Guide to the Best Performances: Cary Grant

    A Filmmaker's Guide to the Best Performances: Cary Grant

    Cary Grant was born on the 18th of January, 1904 in Bristol, England. The English Born-American actor was the second child of a tailor and a seamstress (which explains why his clothes were always so good!). Be that as it may, his mother was suffering from clinical depression and his father was an alcoholic. His mother was placed in a mental institution and his father had told him, after some time, that his mother had died. Cary Grant grew up not really being very close to his parents until his father not only remarried and started a new family but he also found out when his father was dying, that his mother was still alive.
