Niște cuvinte din filmele pe care le-am văzut în 2016

hail

N-am văzut multe filme anul ăsta, sincer zic. Ba chiar am văzut mult mai puține decât mi-aș fi dorit. Iar una dintre rezoluțiile pentru 2017 este să mă întorc puțin la vechiul obicei de a vedea cel puțin 9-10 filme pe lună. And mark my word, it’s gonna happen.

Am văzut, totuși, niște filme tare simpatice anul ăsta. Plus vreo două seriale care mi-au marcat nopțile. Plus încă o tură de Beverly Hills 90210 (ăla original, anii ’90, chestii…), serie ce rămâne în continuare un real guilty pleasure pentru mine.

Am văzut și niște filme dezamăgitoare (foooarte dezamăgitoare).  Așa că o să trec rapid prin ce mi-a plăcut și ce nu mi-a plăcut.

James Stewart and Donna Reed are incredibly beautiful in this immortal Frank Capra classic about family and friendship.

  • I am a huge American Horror Story fan (as I love everything that’s either American, or horror). So last week, when the first episode of the new season premiered on September 14, we got to meet the cast of season 6 (that’s also said to be linking together all the seasons so far). The biggest surprise may be none other than Cuba Gooding Jr.! Can’t wait to watch his story on this one. He’s joined by the now  regulars Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates and Denis O’Hare.
  • And I can’t leave you without this awesome kind of a “Where’s Waldo” Netflix map. The Netflix characters are out in the park and, oh, how I wish I could have a chat with Winona Ryder or Kevin Spacey. Look for characters from Stranger Things, Bojack Horseman, House of Cards, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Orange is the New Black.
