Happy New Year and a New Beginning

I wish you all a very happy new year with lots of fun, laughter, joy and great movies to watch! And of course, a great party for New Year's Eve! :) 

I hope you won't have a New Year's Eve like these people had

And especially poor Shelley: 

But here I am, announcing how my blog will change in 2013. I was seeking new ways for myself and how I can share all my movie- and tv-related thoughts besides my teeny-tiny tweets and then I suddenly realised: I have two blogs! It also seems crazy that I'm only doing Best Actress reviews here so I sort of comibined these two blogs. It feels like I'm only watching these movies and care about such things in terms of movies. No ways. I want to go deeper and explore more areas, Oscar, not Oscar, Europe, television, you name it. This all means more regular posts and various subjects, also hoping that this will lead to more conversation and discussion. I will go on with the Best Actress years and I'm gonna finish it. :)

In the past few days you saw two of the examples how my blog will look like from now on (I didn't get much feedback so I'm assuming you're all fine with the changes).

But as I said, I'm not even remotely finished with Bets Actress. Hilary's review is coming as soon as I have time. I'm also going on with revisiting some years that left me some doubts. Truth to be told, sometimes I did my ranking according to what I thought was right (or wanted to be) and not what I really felt. My new goal is to allow myself to be wrong and surprise you and also myself (if you know what I mean). 

So here's one revised year where there's a shocking change. Some of you may have noticed, some of you may not but see it to believe it (I changed the winner's review a little bit, added some new elements). More to come. :) 

Happy New Year everyone! :) May Captain Nielsen guide you to safer seas!

Well, I'm shocked and sad about Meryl but I haven't seen Jessica and you have to follow your heart. I was like that too with some of my first rankings, always wanting them to fit a certain order I envisioned for myself. But eventually, I became more open minded and honest with myself. I keep an open mind everytime I see a movie because I don't want to be burdened with expectations and I like being surprised.

Glad you're going to do the same!!

Well I'll be interested in your more personal choices, and I understand your difficultly there. I just might have to give William Holden the 53 win after all.

On a side note I don't think I'd trust that Captain he never seems to take things seriously.

Louis: It's always difficult.

Who wouldn't trust him? :'DDDDD

Poseidon Adv. is always so much fun... unlike that crappy remake from 2006. :)

Happy New Year

Alex: EXACTLY!!! It's such a great movie, just like The Towering Inferno. :)

Happy New Year to you as well!
