About me

Hey there and welcome to Moody Moppet.

My name is Reut and I don’t expect any of you to be able to pronounce my name right ๐Ÿ˜‰

Other than a complex forename, I’m 37 years old, a forever lover of movies, arts & crafts, and reading. I’m a nostalgic person, to say the least, with a taste for 80’s and 90’s flicks, foreign films and French. Why French? It’s movies that got this started. Amรฉlie (2001) was my first, and then a long list of French favorites formed itself and is now getting bigger and bigger. On the top of my French movies list now stands 8 femmes (2002) which you can read all about here. I’m also a Psychological Thrillers and Historical Dramas enthusiast and tend to read books related to those genres. I even had a book/movie comparison phase which surprisingly made me appreciate the filmed versions rather than the literary ones (odd!). But… there comes a time when writing about movies just doesn’t suffice and I need to slightly expand. For example, why get info stingy when I can share my vast curiosities, oddities, and hobbies with whoever’s interested in reading them (meaning, you)?

So, yeah. Moody Moppet’s officially open to loads of other topics besides motion pictures, Netflix and books. Perhaps an occasional uber-fattening delish recipe? A wandering thought? An idea? All goes for me. And please… if you feel you’ve had enough just give me a holler. I’m all-over-the-place, yet still a considerate person.

When I’m not blogging (which happens more often than I want to), I hang out here, sooooo feel free to pay me a visit.



For now, enjoy my blog and I hope you keep coming back. I’d love to return a favor โฅ

    1. Thank you for tagging me, Tiffany! ^_^
      I’m super honored and will definitely contribute my most hated film review. I’m also be joining your blogathon. It’s always a pleasure for me to be asked and write posts for blogathons. I ever so often neglect my blog for the sake of whatever, and blogathons always bring me back to my movie reviewing path and I love it. Anywho, thank you again and I’ll be sending me post very soon. Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. I look forward to reading your “Unpopular Opinion Film Tag” article. Thank you so much for joining my blogathon. I really appreciate it. Do you have any idea what your topic will be? If you do, I will put it on the roster with your name. If not, I will simply list your topic as “To Be Announced.” If you need any suggestions, I would be happy to give you some. By the way, thank you for following my column.

      Yours Hopefully,

    3. The three categories of the blogathon are breening existing films, writing about your own movie ideas, and writing a tribute about the Code era. You could write about a film you really love from the Breen era, which is 1934 to 1954, putting an emphasis on the fact that it was made great because of the Code. I don’t know exactly what era of movies you like best, but you may enjoy breening a silent, pre-Code, or post-Code film. I have seen more modern films on your website than early ones, so perhaps you would like to breen a Shurlock era film. (The Shurlock era is the time between 1955 and 1968.) Basically, breening means to say how a film could have been cleaner, as if it were made under Mr. Breen’s watch. I will be publishing an article on how to breen on Thursday. If you have a favorite actor about whom you might like to write, I could give you some suggestions about Code films with him you could honor or un-Code films you could breen.

      Yours Hopefully,

      Tiffany Brannan

    1. Hi Rob, I think you have a little mistake there. The review for The BFG was written by Tom of Shortbread. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to submit my May review. Will participate on the June one, if it’s cool. Thanks ๐Ÿ˜Š
