January Favorites

I have always wanted to do a «monthly favorites» type of post on this blog, but I kept putting it off some reason or the other. Last year, though, I finally decided to do it. I will be doing one of these every month (or every two months) and I will include literally everything that I have loved or that has made me happy during that time, be it a film, a song, a book, a TV show or even an item of clothing. Here are my January favorites.

*******************************************************************************************
Favorite film: Beautiful Boy (2018)
I fell madly in love with Timothée Chalamet after watching Call Me By Your Name (2017) last year, so I obviously very interested to see what he would do next. What he did next was Beautiful Boy and I was once again mesmerized by how brilliant he is as an actor. He puts his complete heart and soul into every role that he takes on and it's like he becomes that character and feels exactly what the character is feeling. In Beautiful Boy he plays a drug addict, which is not an easy role to tackle (especially when it is based on a real person) and he just put so much emotion into it. It's heartbreaking to watch, and sometimes you feel it's actually Timmy who's going through that. If you haven't seen Beautiful Boy, I strongly recommend you do. Not just for Timmy, but for the entire cast, which is amazing, especially Steve Carell. The script, direction and cinematography are excellent as well. And watch it until the very end, because during the credits you can hear Timmy read Charles Bukowski's poem «Let It Unfold You», and that might just one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard in my entire life.

Oh, and by the way, not presenting Timotheé Chalamet with a nomination for Best Supporting Actor for Beautiful Boy is one of the biggest mistakes in Academy history. You may quote me on that.


 *******************************************************************************************
Favorite TV show: Queer Eye (2018-)
In the beginning of January, I came across this INCREDIBLY photo of Antoni Porowski on Instagram and I just had to find out who that Greek god was. Turns out, he's Polish, not Greek. (That's a really bad joke.) By the way, that entire phootshoot, which was done by Damon Baker for Attitude magazine, is like WOW! Anyway, I discovered that he was on a show called Queer Eye, which I had heard of, but had obviously never seen. So, I went on YouTube (as you do) and watched a few clips of the show and the next thing I knew, I had binge-watched the whole thing. I'm a little bit obsessed with it right now, and I CANNOT wait for season 3.

I love the Fab 5 so much! Antoni is one of single most attractive men I have ever seen in my entire life and I adore his smile. (Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks he looks like Matt Bomer.) Tan should be on the cover of Vogue magazine like EVERY edition. I want to be BFFs with Bobby and Jonathan, and I literally wish I had Jonathan's hair. And Karamo and I are birthday twins. We were both born on November 2, which is shamazing. See, I'm already picking up the lingo. Antoni is my favorite of the Fab 5, but I'm genuinely in love with all of them right now. Some people might think that this is just a superficial show, but it's really not. They're not just changing these people's outside, their changing their inside as well. They're giving them a new perspective on life and helping them boost their confidence and realize their full potential. I wish they would do that for me.


*******************************************************************************************
Favorite song: «Timebomb» by Walk the Moon
Walk the Moon have been one of my favorite bands for a few years, and they released a new song about three weeks which I am obsessed with. It's such a catchy tune, and much like «Shut Up and Dance», I just want to get up and dance every time I hear «Timebomb». I hope they release a new album soon.


*******************************************************************************************
And that's it. Although it feels like January has gone on forever, I only have three favorites for this month.

Top 10 Favorite Films of the 1950s

Continuing with my top 10 (or top 20, if I cannot narrow it down to just 10) of my favorite films of each decade, today I bring you my top 10 favorite films of the 1950s. Please bear in mind that this my own personal opinion, which of course is limited to the films that I have thus far. Check out my favorites from the 1930s and 1940s.

*****************************************************************************************
#10Harvey (1950)
Directed by Henry Koster | Starring James Stewart, Josephine Hull, Peggy Dow, Charles Drake and Cecil Kellaway | Universal Pictures

James Stewart plays an eccentric middle-aged man named Elwood P. Dowd (that's probably one of the fanciest names I have ever heard), whose best friend is an invisible tall rabbit named Harvey. What's not to like?


*****************************************************************************************
Directed by Leo McCarey | Starring Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr, Richard Denning, Neva Patterson and Cathleen Nesbitt | 20th Century Fox

Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr are two strangers who fall madly in love on a cruise ship. They agree to meet again in six months' time, but she's gets struck by a car on the day of their rendezvous and is told by doctors that she will never walk again. It takes a while for Cary Grant to realize what's happened, but it's all good in the end. «If you can paint, I can walk. Anything can happen, don't you think?» Corny, I know, but wonderful.


*****************************************************************************************
#8Some Like It Hot (1959)
Directed by Billy Wilder | Starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, Marilyn Monroe, Joe E. Brown, George Raft and Pat O'Brien | United Artists

Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon disguise themselves as women to hide from the Mafia. Tony Curtis ends up falling in love with Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon earns the affection of Joe E. Brown. Joe E. Brown asks Jack Lemmon to marry him, but he refuses because he's a man. But that's okay, because nobody's perfect.


*****************************************************************************************
#7Rear Window (1954)
Directed by Alfred Hitchcock | Starring James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Thelma Ritter, Wendell Corey and Raymond Burr | Paramount Pictures

James Stewart plays a voyeuristic photographer (some would call him a creep) who discovers that his neighbor killed his wife, but Grace Kelly and Thelma Ritter think he's going nuts. Turns out, he was right all along. Never doubt a man who spends his days spying on his neighbors through the lense of his camera.


*****************************************************************************************
#6Roman Holiday (1953)
Directed by William Wyler | Starring Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck, Eddie Albert, Hartley Power and Harcourt Williams | Paramount Pictures

Audrey Hepburn is an European princess who becomes infatuated with Gregory Peck (I mean, who wouldn't? Have you looked at him?) and experiences the joys of living for the first time. There's Vespa scooters, haircuts, pranks on Miss Hepburn and all kinds of frolicking in gorgeous 1950s Rome. There's Eddie Albert, too.


*****************************************************************************************
#5Sunset Boulevard (1950)
Directed by Billy Wilder | Starring William Holden, Gloria Swanson, Erich von Stroheim, Nancy Olson and Fred Clark | Paramount Pictures

William Holden is a struggling Hollywood writer who takes advantage of Gloria Swanson, a fading movie star, to advance his unsuccessful career. She eventually falls in love with him, but he couldn't care less about her. So, in the end Gloria Swanson kills William Holden and goes cuckoo afterwards. No, this is not a comedy.


*****************************************************************************************
Directed by John Huston | Starring Robert Mitchum and Deborah Kerr | 20th Century Fox

Robert Mitchum is a U.S. Marine who gets stranded on a beach in the South Pacific during World War II. Deborah Kerr plays a nun who happens to be stranded on the same beach. They get really infatuated with each other, but cannot consummate their love because she doesn't want to forsake her religious vows. The way I see it, if Robert Mitchum wants to get it on with you, you forsake your freakin' vows! Obviously, I mean no disrespect.


*****************************************************************************************
#3Born Yesterday (1950)
Directed by George Cukor | Starring William Holden, Judy Holliday, Broderick Crawford, Howard St. John and Frank Otto | Columbia Pictures

Judy Holliday is a brassy showgirl tied up to Broderick Crawford, a brutish crook who does not appreciate her. William Holden comes along and teaches her a thing or two about history and literature and politics and law, and she blossoms in front of our very eyes. She falls in love with William Holden, then tells Broderick Crawford to drop dead and lives happily ever after with her one true love. I love me a good rom-com.


*****************************************************************************************
#2Pillow Talk (1959)
Directed by Michael Gordon | Starring Doris Day, Rock Hudson, Tony Randall, Thelma Ritter and Nick Adams | Universal-International

Rock Hudson is a renowned playboy who tricks prim-and-proper Doris Day into falling in love with him by masquerading as a Texas rancher. She discovers his deception, but ends up falling into his arms anyway. I mean, it's Rock Hudson. Who in their right minds would say no to Rock Hudson? Exactly. No one.


*****************************************************************************************
#1Singin' in the Rain (1952)
Directed by Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen | Starring Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds, Donald O'Connor and Jean Hagen | Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

Gene Kelly is a silent film superstar who begins a romance with aspiring actress Debbie Reynolds. Jean Hagen, his vain, conniving and shallow leading lady, becames blind with jealousy and tries to ruin their career. Don't worry, everything turns out just fine in the end. Oh, did I mention Gene Kelly is in it?


*****************************************************************************************
There you have it. These are (as of now) my top 10 favorite films of that wonderful decade that was the 1950s. What are some of your favorites movies of the '50s?

December Favorites

I have always wanted to do a «monthly favorites» type of post on this blog, but I kept putting it off some reason or the other — until this year. I will be doing one of these every month (or every two months) and I will include literally everything that I have loved or that has made me happy during that time, be it a film, a song, a book, a TV show or a item of clothing. These are my December favorites.

*****************************************************************************************
Favorite film: A Star Is Born (2018)
I have been looking forward to watching this film ever since I saw the trailer for the first time months ago. I finally watched it yesterday and it was better than I thought. Honestly, it is such a beautiful film! The cast is flawless, the cinematography is stuning, the soundtrack is beautiful and Bradley Cooper did an amazing job directing. I've been a fan of his for years and I think Jackson Maine is his best performance yet. The scene when Jackson is at the rehabilitation center and apologizes to Ally for embarrassing her at the Grammys broke my heart. And when he says to his brother Bobby, «It wasn't dad I idolized, it was you» almost made me cry. I know the nominations haven't been announced yet, but if Bradley Cooper wins the Oscar for Best Actor, I'll be a happy girl.

I was also really impressed with Lady GaGa. I'm not a huge fan of hers, but she's absolutely stunning as Ally. She's looks beautiful with brown hair and no makeup. And her voice is definitely one of the best female voices of all time. I'd say she has a pretty good chance of winning the Oscar for Best Actress.


*****************************************************************************************
Favorite TV show: Outlander (2015-)
Outlander is one of my favorite shows and I think season 4 has been my favorite so far. I was unsure at first about it taking place in America, but honestly, this season is SO GOOD! Part of why I love so much is Roger & Brianna. I really like them together (even though Brianna gets on my nerves a little bit sometimes) and I am slightly in love with Richard Rankin, who has the most amazing Scottish accent ever. I still love Jamie & Claire (OBVIOUSLY), but I'm more interested in Roger at the moment.


*****************************************************************************************
Favorite album: A Brief Inquiry into Online 
Relationships by The 1975

Oh man, this album! This album is everything! I love the previous two albums by The 1975, but ABIIOR is without a doubt their best one yet. I honestly don't have the words to describe how incredibly good it is, so go listen to it for yourself. You will not regret it, I can promise you that. My favorite songs are «Love It If We Made It», «Sincerity is Scary» and «Always Wanna Die (Sometimes)».


*****************************************************************************************
Favorite person: Matty Healy
I love this man so much! He honestly means the absolute world to me. In December, because of the new album, I fell in love with him all over again. And it's so nice to see him happy and healthy.


 *****************************************************************************************
Favorite random thing: Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell performing
the Viennese Waltz on Strictly Come Dancing
I don't watch Strictly Come Dancing, but I really like Joe Sugg and I was interested to see how he would do on a dancing show. I watched all of his dances and let me tell you — he is actually a fairly good dancer. My favorite one was definitely the Viennese Waltz, which he performed on the semi-finals. I must have watched it probably about ten times by now. He and Dianne were so in synch and the way they looked at each other was simply magical. And guess what? They are dating now! I'm so happy for them! She's lovely and they seem to be genuinely in love with each other.



*****************************************************************************************
And that's it! These are the things that I have loved the most throughout December.

Films Seen in 2018

In 2016 and 2017, I shared with you a list of all the films I saw throughout those years, so I thought I would continue the «tradition» and do it again in 2018. This list includes both classic and «modern» films, which make up a total of 127 titles. It is not nearly as many films as I have seen in previous years, but I think it is still a fairly decent amount. Let me know how many of the pictures listed you have seen. As always, films marked with a heart () are my favorites.
