Just Right Television

by Grant P. As a new season of television premiers kicks off, I am reminded of the insanely popular blogging topic: shows cancelled too soon. Even here at Bilbliofiles, we are guilty. It is fun to imagine what could have been and lament the horrible decisions of studio executives (or whoever is in charge of […]

Can’t Hardly Wait

by Grant P. I recently saw a list of the movies to be released in 2019–2019! I do not want to have to look forward to movies coming out in 18 months. This is a horrible way to live. I don’t even want to wait until later this year to see movies. And anyways, almost every […]

Beyond Bestsellers: Film Adaptations

by Grant P. As one of your film bloggers, I have yet to experience the joy and honored duty of taking you along the joyous path that is Beyond Bestsellers. Whether this was due to my perceived lack of ability to provide content on books or perhaps a refusal to volunteer on my part is […]

by Grant P. It is the season for the beach, the ocean, the sand, and the sunburn. Instead of providing a list of great summer beach reads, I am more of a realist. Sadly, many of us are stuck at work, so the few glimpses of the surf and sand we will be seeing is […]

90 minutes or less

By Grant With a toddler running around and another one on the way, my free time in the evenings is rather limited. So while watching the newest two and a half hour epic may sound appealing (at least to me), reality sets in and halfway through I am asleep on the couch wondering how Frodo […]

If you liked Black Panther …

By Grant P. If you are one of the billion people (not fact checked) who have already enjoyed Black Panther in the theaters and are looking for something similar, it is your lucky day because I have created a multimedia list just for all one billion of you. And if you haven’t seen it yet […]

A Day in the life.

by Grant P. Daniel Day-Lewis recently announced he was retiring from acting, which was greeted with much sadness and an academy award nomination. I wasn’t surprised by the announcement as he only makes a movie every 3-5 years, and 60 seems like a reasonable (if lucky) age to retire. My two favorite performances of his […]

A24

By Grant P. I saw recently that Disney was buying 20th Century Fox. Aside from the prospect of the greatest film of all time, this is not great news for movie fans. It means we will probably continue to see more giant blockbusters and remakes that don’t need to exist and fewer medium budget films. I miss […]

Genre Movie Challenge

By Grant P. & Michelle C. Your faithful film bloggers here at Sno-Isle don’t always agree on what makes a good movie. Sno-Isle collects 15(!) different film genres and Michelle and I have decided to select a film to suggest in each genre and … we are going to watch 3 films from our opposition’s […]
