We're coming down the home stretch now in the KOTOR era. This is the beginning of the big three and the most exciting part. These have been really fun for me to make since I've wanted a movie of this franchise made for so long.
I don’t care what anyone says...I wish it was Christmas today! And every day.
I’m writing this in 2020, so as you surely can understand, I simply cannot wait for Santa to come and bring us some joy. We deserve it.
In this chapter of ‘the filmmaker’s guide’ we’re actually going to be learning about literature and film together. I understand that many of you are sitting in university during difficult times and finding it increasingly hard to study and I understand that many of you who are not at university or not planning on it are possibly stuck of what to do, need a break or even need to catch up on learning film before you get to the next level. This guide will be brief but will also contain: new vocabulary, concepts and theories, films to watch and we will be exploring something taboo until now in the ‘filmmaker’s guide’ - academia (abyss opens). Each article will explore a different concept of film, philosophy, literature or bibliography/filmography etc. in order to give you something new to learn each time we see each other. You can use some of the words amongst family and friends to sound clever or you can get back to me (email in bio) and tell me how you’re doing. So, strap in and prepare for the filmmaker’s guide to film studies because it is going to be one wild ride.
Roger Moore is undoubtedly one of the most talented, world-renowned British actors. In addition to his talent as an actor, probably the best attributes of his character that helped him build a long-lasting and successful career are his work stamina and professional endurance. Not all of his movies were instant hits though, since when he started, he played a few minor roles. However, his patience and persistence paid off and was offered leading roles in a number of all-time best-selling movies.
I'm sure Netflix has been your most used app recently due to the fact we are all stuck in our houses with nothing to do because of Covid-19. So, if you haven't binged enough, grab a snack, sit back down, and see our top 10 Netflix series to binge in 2020.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is one of my favorite movie franchises! I have seen all of them, and I fell in love with each of them. The first one I watched wasn't even the first movie released--Ant-Man--and I love Paul Rudd. He was the absolute perfect person to cast for that role. I had seen him in several other movies and when I learned he was the lead, that sold me on watching my first MCU movie. After that, I had to watch all of them, in order even.
12 - Cambodian Hideaway
Shrouded in secrecy and mired in controversy is Angelina Jolie’s private Cambodian Getaway located in the Jungle that she snapped up for $44,000
Paul Bettany probably has one of the most interesting MCU history of any of his fellow Marvel actors. After spending four films as the voice of Tony Stark's ever present A.I, J.A.R.V.I.S, Bettany initially thought he was about to be fired before he was offered the chance to play The Vision in Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
This is part 9 of the things I’m passionate about series of articles. A further look into my tortured mind.
I am a massive movie buff. It feels like I’ve seen everything, or that I’m the Rainman for movie trivia. Having spent most of my life alone it kind of makes sense I suppose, that when not studying relentlessly, I’d amuse myself with escapism. Movies being one of the chief methods. They’ve inspired me, influenced my decisions about life, schooling, and careers, they’ve even swayed my decisions regarding some parenting issues here and there I’m sure. For writing about movies, I’d like to write reviews of old and recently released movies, pre-views and my thoughts and speculations on upcoming movies, and for a more personal touch I’d like to write about how they’ve influenced my life. I’d also like to profile favorite actors and the characters they’ve portrayed and maybe how they have also impacted me. All in the hopes of inspiring other people to maybe experience some of the amazing films I’ve seen or to share their own experiences whether they agree with me or not.
