Some people on Twitter just cannot contain themselves to 140 characters. Here's a selection of some of their writings from their own blogs. Like Twitter, it's a mash up of the deeply personal to highly whimsical, with some great creative & visual art thrown in as well. Hope you enjoy it.

Dark Shadows on My Opinion About Things

A Tim Burton production with Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp. What could possibly go wrong? Well, to begin with, the story is so very slow. It doesn’t start to get fun until about 25 minutes in. This is when Johnny Depp enters the scene and adds some good old silly moves in there. But […]

Ballerina, Netflix on My Opinion About Things

This film tells the story of two orphans in the old France of 1880. Felicie and Victor want to go to Paris, to follow their dreams. Felicie wants to be a dancer, Victor wants to be an inventor. The story is nice and all, but it doesn’t have much dept. You see some terrible behaviour […]

Black Spot on My Opinion About Things

This is the first time I’ve been sucked into a series that doesn’t follow the usual path of cliche’s. This makes it interesting to keep watching. It does, however, remind of a few films and series you might have seen before. There is a missing person, and the looking for that person reminded me a […]

Dead to Me on My Opinion About Things

Christina Applegate, Linda Cardellini, James Marsden and more. This series is very weird, to be fair, but has such a lovely and dark edge, you keep watching it anyway. Jen (Christina Applegate) is a new widow, since her husband was killed in a hit and run while jogging. The police haven’t found so much as […]

Dorothy Parker on Experimental Fiction

Prince fans will know the inspiration for this … Dorothy Parker worked the till, In the café on Orange Street, When coffee was the only cure She kept it hot and sweet. Always quick with smile and laugh, She kept the customs care, No one ever turned away, All were welcome there. Dorothy Parker grace […]

Wine Country on My Opinion About Things

Maya Rudolph, Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, Tina Fey, Ana Gasteyer, Paula Pell and others. The storyline itself is quite thin: group of female friends go for a weekend away to celebrate the 50st birthday of one of them. With such a starstudded cast of funny people, I kind of expected to be bathing in jokes […]

Extremely Wicked Shockingly Evil And Vile on My Opinion About Things

I’ve watched this film so you don’t have to. Truly, don’t bother. Despite the starstrucken cast (who the hell convinced John Malkovich to do this??)I don’t see how this film should be anything other than pure clickbait, hence the title. You only come up with something like that if you don’t have anything profoundly to […]

Above And Below on Experimental Fiction

An attempt at constructing something like Shakespeare’s “Phoenix And The Turtle”. Hope you like it. One in flight and beauty seen, In the air such as belong, Calling forth a love in song, All about does nature gleam. Other stays amid the grass, Lowly though a pride in face, Never knowing ought but place, Life […]

Mother! on My Opinion About Things

Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Harris and others. I’d read about Mother! being quite the spectacle, and in a way it is. Just not the type of spectacle I was hoping for, I guess. A poet, Javier Bardem, who struggles for inspiration, and his younger wife, Jennifer Lawrence, find themselves in their massive […]

The Catcher In The Rye on My Opinion About Things

I was confronted with the fact that I had never read this absolute classic a few weeks ago, when my nephew’s grandfather (not my own father, mind) gave it to him as a birthday present. I was determined to get my own copy and read it. I have done so and read it. To be […]
