Film Reviews: Belle and Heaven Is For Real

I recently saw two movies that were not only great, they were both worth watching and inspiring films with an excellent cast each.

Kelly Reilly's current limited (13 episodes) and first U.S. TV series, Black Box has aired six episodes in a row the last six weeks, but now it's taking a few weeks of hiatus, not because it's being cancelled.

This series has been getting very good in every episode and doing well ratings-wise. It's only taking a break due to NBA Finals, which is taking its Thursday night times slot for a few weeks starting tonight.

Period Dramas on TV starring Pride & Prejudice actors (Part II)

Image
Here's part II of my two-part post here about Period Dramas on TV and Films starring Pride & Prejudice actors. See Period Dramas in Films starring Pride & Prejudice actors (Part I).

I love watching period dramas, where I'm transported to a different time and a different era (with gorgeous costumes and regal manor homes) in the past! Be it made for a TV movie, a TV series/mini-series, or in a feature film you see in the big screen (in theaters). After watching so many period dramas over the years (including one of my all-time favorites, Pride & Prejudice (2005) film), I discovered so many more great period movies especially the ones starring/co-starring any one or more of my favorite P&P (2005) ensemble cast. I knew I've seen them before, but I just didn't know where or couldn't put a finger to where I've seen them before. A lot of them appeared in various period TV series or movies prior to, during, and after they all appeared in P&…

First official still from Suffragette featuring Carey Mulligan

Image
Last April, I posted here the First Photo of Carey Mulligan on 'Suffragette' set in London. Today, the first first official still has been released (via Pathe International) featuring Carey as Maud. The film is currently in post-production and also stars Helena Bonham-Carter, Brendan Gleeson, Anne Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw, Meryl Streep.

Here’s the official synopsis for Suffragette:
SUFFRAGETTE is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. MAUD was one such foot soldier. The story of her fig…

Period Dramas in Films starring Pride & Prejudice actors (Part I)

Image
Have you ever seen a period movie where you kept wondering about a familiar actor starring in that period drama and thought you had seen him or her before, but you just can't remember nor recognized the actor from where or which other movie you've seen seen him or her before?

If your answer is yes to the question above...well, you're not the only one. I know I have and sure enough, I've found out, not only that he or she looked familiar, but I've also seen him/her in Pride & Prejudice (2005) movie. Of course, it started way back in 2005 when I just saw the amazing ensemble cast of Joe Wright's P&P movie. It was interesting that I hadn't noticed before that I've seen at least some of them in other movies, but didn't know nor put the two and two together because I didn't know who they were nor was I familiar with their faces (with the exceptions of the well-known ones such as Keira Knightley, Jena Malone, Judi Dench, Brenda Blethyn, and
