The Brothers Grimm (2005) – Terry Gilliam

Arguably Terry Gilliam’s most commercial film, The Brothers Grimm is the next stop as I explore Myths, Legends and Fairy Tales as portrayed in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies. The film features Heath Ledger and Matt Damon as the titular Grimm Brothers, and the always stunning (and underused) Monica Bellucci as the evil Mirror…

Game of Thrones: Season 5

  All it takes is for me to hear the stirring opening theme by Ramin Djwadi, and I get very excited about returning to Westeros. Now, thanks to HBO, I can journey back there to that war-torn land, and binge-watch all of Season 5’s episodes, and get ready for the approach of Winter, and Season…
