Moonrise Kingdom

by 4 Comments

I’m taking a break from home posts to share the most amazing movie trailer of all time. Okay, maybe not number one, but you can never go wrong with Wes Anderson. I’m a huge fan of Wes Anderson‘s films. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou is one of my favourite comedies of all time, and… Read more »

The Colours of That Thing You Do!

by 2 Comments

Have you seen the movie That Thing You Do! Pretty sure that my family bought it back in the late 1990s through Columbia House and I watched it so many times! The movie is set in the 1960s and follows the story of a young band from Pennsylvania as they try to make it big… Read more »

The Colours of Pretty in Pink

by 4 Comments

A few weeks ago it was announced that the Blockbusters in Winnipeg were shutting their doors, so naturally Mike and I went over and scoured the shelves for our favourite movies at bargain prices. We got 12 movies (some blu-ray, some DVD) for $80! One of the movies I picked was Pretty in Pink. Honestly,… Read more »

The Colours of Juno

by 4 Comments

Juno is one of those movies I can watch whenever it comes up on TV and still enjoy it every time (thanks for the suggestion, Liz!). The cheeky dialogue and heartfelt characters make me feel comfortable and at home, like sinking into a favourite old chair. Juno tells the story of a teenage girl who… Read more »

The Colours of Candy

The hazy balm of summer has finally landed in my sleepy prairie city! Yesterday my coworkers and I lounged on our wonderful patio for lunch (I’m supposed to take 30 minutes, but if I’m being honest, it was more like 45. It was so warm out though!) and I ended up with rosy shoulders and… Read more »

The Colours of The King’s Speech

by 2 Comments

I finally got around to watching The King’s Speech recently. The 4-time Oscar winner beautifully and almost heartbreakingly tells the story of England’s King George VI battle with his stutter. Directed by Tom Hooper, the film’s visuals focus on two main themes – the desolate blue-grays of England contrasted with the warm yellow-golds of the… Read more »

The Colours of An Education

by 0 Comments

Have you seen An Education? It brings out the 1960s British schoolgirl in me, debating sacrificing a prestigious education for unabashedly falling in love for the first time with a much older man and the lure of his sophisticated and worldly lifestyle. And it also makes me want Chanel No 5. Plus, the 2009 film… Read more »

The Colours of The Motorcycle Diaries

by 2 Comments

The Motorcycle Diaries is a relatively unknown film (at least in English-speaking communities) that tells the story of Che Guevara’s adventures through South America on decrepit motorcycle in his youth. Regardless of what happened later in Che’s life, the film is incredibly moving and tells his story fantastically, moving from country to country seamlessly. Directed… Read more »
