1001 MOVIES YOU HAVE TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE
Apart from my checklist of this quintessential work of literature, I sometimes like to feature a bunch of movies from the list that I've recently seen and that have some sort of connection.

A JOURNEY IN...
I get lost in the depths of a certain "element" of cinema, such as a director, an actor, a genre - anything - and then write an extended post on the topic. Until now I've only written about directors though.

COOL FILMS WITH SHIPS AND BOATS
The worst feature name ever and only one post so far. Growing up on ships and boats, I like to think that I have a special connection to these things. So I'd like to feature cool films that have something to do with ships and boats.

FABULOUS FILMIC FASHION
Once a weekly event, this feature will now appear only when I see a movie whose fashion I can't help but share. Fashion used to be my most important hobby before movies came around, so I like talking about it once in a while.

Sometimes, I get tired of writing simple reviews or essays all the time. So I freshen things up with a little poetry.

HAPPY NEW MONTH!
Where I discuss every single movie I've seen in the past month. Because I believe they deserve it. I also write about some books I've read and some music I've listened to.
The place for all the real heroes of cinema. The ones I consider to be heroes at least. Characters that inspired me in whatever phase of my life. There's also a subcategory of childhood heroes.

ON SCREEN AND PAGE
As a cinema-enthusiast, you're most likely also a literature-enthusiast. At least you've read a couple of novels, which is more than the average person nowadays. Personally, I'm a book-worm, and the fact that many, many screenplays are based on novels sometimes makes me the happiest person in the world. Other times not, because either of the products is better than the other. In any way, the experience of reading something and then watching it - or the other way round - is quite rewarding.

As tv shows are getting better and better, and move from the actual tv antenna to DVD collections and, well, the wi-fi, we're all getting more and more addicted to them. Tv shows have more time to develop interesting characters and plots, and they can have a much bigger emotional impact on the viewer, than a 90-120 minute feature film. What times could be better for starting a series feature than these?

THE CINEMATIC COOKBOOK
In The Cinematic Cookbook, you will - as time goes by and more and more entries are published - be able to find recipes for any film-related meal. Be it the classic action flick or the new trend of philosophic, complicated films that search for a meaning in life, we know all about it. Theoretically, that is. Perhaps you will find inspiration for your own soon to be coming production, or what is more likely and the actual intention of this, you will find amusement and pleasure in reading the various recipes and if possible sharing thoughts for additional ingredients or refinements with the other gourmets here.
LAST POST: "HOW TO MAKE A CULT MOVIE"
This is me, pretending to know which films are "essential" to watch, be it from a specific actor/ actress, year, country or... whatever.
LAST POST: "LET ME TELL YOU A STORY: KAHAANI"
A bowl full of random thoughts on random, cinema-related or non-cinema-related topics.
Just another way to write reviews, perhaps the worst one: a list of thoughts on a movie.
LAST POST: "5 THOUGHTS ON REBECCA"
Wrapping up the year that was.
