Movies and TV Series filmed in Ireland, but NOT set in Ireland : The Teeny tiny à Tout Faire (Reblog)

Well I know that I'm supposed to be tooting my own horn but why can't I toot about blogs I like as well? It's just as much fun reading other people's blogs as it is publishing my own. Re-blogging a link from a super cool entertainment blog that caught my eye.


The Teeny tiny à Tout Faire: [Irish Week] Movies and TV Series filmed in Ireland, but NOT set in Ireland



Why do I like this blog? It shares entertainment-related tidbits, fun facts, etc. that are of interest to me. I like the post categories; especially “Who Wore It Best?”   

(Loved that contrast photo of Lupita and Beyoncé.  Shared it via my Tumblr.)



I enjoy the “Movie Reviews” category because there are reviews of vintage movies. The publisher uses the word “vintage”. But sometimes we say “movie classics” or “old movies”. 

(I love all things vintage, so I'm happy with the blogger using this descriptive term in lieu of “classic” or “old”.   Shared the review of "Father Goose" via Pinterest where I collect "Everything Vintage". )

Additionally, there are recommendations regarding foreign films (i.e. non-American) and I'm always on the hunt for non-American movies or TV series.




Will you be adding this blog to your list of "Blogs I Like"?

I Heart Foreign Movies

When I was a kid in Miami, Florida, the closest thing to foreign films were the Spanish channels, which I couldn’t really watch because I didn’t understand the language.  But now there’s YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, etc.  Unlimited films to choose from.  So many that it is often hard to choose.

Know of any foreign movies (i.e. non-American) available with English subtitles to watch? They could be Asian, European, African, Middle Eastern. No matter. If you think it’s worthwhile view, please make a suggestion.

Bollywood Movie Review: Karam (2005)

It never fails, no matter what online social blogging or writing community I join, the discussion always gets around to “favorites”. Favorite song. Favorite movie. Favorite book. And then, of course, the “faves” can vary. Favorite song from a movie. Favorite book adapted to film. Favorite soundtrack to a movie. On and on and on.

My husband introduced me to foreign films and in particular, to Bollywood films. If you watch Hindi movies you know that there are literally thousands (possibly even millions) of them with all kinds of wonderful music and songs. There is this one movie which stars Bollywood beauty Priyanka Chopra and Bollywood hunk John Abraham, where she sings the most beautiful haunting melody. Heard that song the first time and it hooked me! Instant favorite!! To me it was the best vocal performance ever by Ms. Chopra.





That's it. That's my review. This movie is a love story. It is intense! The bad guys are really bad. When the bad guys confront each other, you're happy you're not stuck in the middle. Your heart bleeds for every innocent victim that has the misfortune to cross paths with them. So when a bad guy is married to a good girl … ______. If I fill out the blank, it'll spoil the movie for those who may not have seen it. Even if you don't have time to watch the film, at least take a few minutes to listen to Ms. Chopra's performance of a song that is definitely on my favorites list.

The 2005 film is “Karam”. The song is “Tinka Tinka”.

Asian Cinema : Movie Review : The King of Masks (1999)

The theatrical masks of Chinese opera were promoted by emperors and high court officials. As a result, they became a traditional art form and along with this tradition, came other traditions. 



Many films are gems that get lost or buried. Even award-winning films like The King of Masks. It's a foreign movie: Mandarin Chinese with English subtitles.

Time period is the 1930s. A master of an ancient Chinese art is growing old. He must pass on his skills to an heir. A male heir.
It's tradition!

Unfortunately, he's childless. In a desperate effort to honor the custom and maintain the trade and the tradition, he buys a young child. In China, poor children are often sold via a black market. He and the child develop a close relationship, however, a “complication” also develops.


"The King of Masks

is a wonderful and touching story.
