About Me

Hello, my name is Virginie Pronovost and I am your blogger at The Wonderful World of Cinema. 🙂 I was born in 1995.

I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and I am actually a student at Concordia University (one of the Best universities in Canada for cinema). My program is called Film Studies. I previously did a screenwriting certificate at the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQÀM). I might like to be a screenwriter later. I love everything about cinema, particularly classics films. Because of that, I fairly enjoy my classes of cinema history (or any other courses where we watch some classics). I watch a lot of films and I have a great collection of DVDs and books about cinema. Let’s say that I have an interest for classic cinema since I was about 15.  My favourite movie director is Alfred Hitchcock, my favourite actor is James Stewart, my favourite actresses are Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Ingrid Bergman, my favourite character actor is Arthur Kennedy, and my favourite movie is Some Like it Hot.

Other interests:

  • David Bowie
  • Madonna
  • British culture
  • Fashion
  • Arts in general
  • Cross country skiing
  • Travelling
  • Cooking desserts
  • Reading (Favourite book: Harry Potter, favourite male author: Stephen King, favourite female author: Daphné du Maurier)

Yes, this is me! I was at Park Güell in Barcelona 🙂

I’ve decided to start a blog simply because it looked nice. I know some people who are running one and I really admire their work, so I wanted to do the same. It became an addictive activity, and it’s a way for me to express my love for films on an other place than Facebook. As you can see, this blog mainly presents movie reviews, top list and tributes. You’ll rarely see a review of a movie that I don’t like. Why? Because I don’t like writing about stuff I don’t like. It’s not motivating, and I already have to do that at school (sometimes), because I obviously don’t always watch movies I like. This blog has for main objective to honour films, not to destroy them. Anyway, I normally know how to choose well the films I watch, so I don’t see a lot of movies that I don’t like.

I now invite you to read my various articles, hoping you will like them. Please, don’t hesitate to share your thoughts. You can also write directly to me (see contact section).

Thanks! 🙂

  1. Cheers. I remember being 20 years old and being bitten by the cinephile bug. I also disliking saying negative things about movies, and detest arguing about subjective tastes. Looking forwarding to reading more of your thoughts.

  2. Ginnie. Wow your blog is fantastic. I hear so much about blogs but never really read one. You are so talented. I should start a blog of my own. But no one is going to read it. I don’t have the fan base you have.

    • Ahah I would read your blog if you start one! 😛
      Well, I’m not the most popular blog. I’ve never been to the TCM Film Festival and never hosted a blogathon (well, I co-hosted an actress tournament), but I would love to. Well I’m expecting much more for my blog! 🙂

  4. May I share my favorites with you?!? Frank Capra, Hitchcock, Spielberg, Malick…Spencer Tracy, Gregory Peck, Cary Grant…Greer Garson, Audrey Hepburn, Irene Dunn, Bette Davis and movies are on my Facebook page 72 of them if you care to peek. Thank you for letting me talk about one of my favorite subjects. I live in a town of 480 and moved here from Chicago 10 years ago…to live life not maintain it. These are wonderful people who have had a strong work ethic…agriculture primarily…so they don’t know Cary or Bette. Would love to have a theatre for them so they could sit back, relax and fade into a wonderful world of black and white.

  6. You sound adorable, Virginie and you seems to have an exquisite taste in films and actors. I love Alfred Hitchcock’s film too, though did not have a chance to write about any quite yet. Super glad to follow you and thank for following me as well. 🙂

  7. Hi Virginie, my name is Andreas, I was also born in 1995, I’m also a big fan of cinema and I also have a blog about cinema which I only started a few days ago. I came accross your blog as I was looking for other blogs relevant to cinema and I have to say you’re doing an impressive job. You seem to be a big fan of Hollywood’s golden age. I also like Hitchcock a lot, but my favourite director is Stanley Kubrick. I’ll be following your blog from now on. Keep up the good work, I hope my blog will become as good as yours in the future 🙂

  8. You just wrote about a film starring my all-time favorite actor and actress (William Powell and Carole Lombard), “My Man Godfrey” — which is tied with “Libeled Lady” as my all-time favorite film. My all-time favorite director? Ernst Lubitsch.

    How’s your screenwriting career going? I’m making the transition to it myself, and in fact am peddling this blend of romantic comedy, science fiction and fantasy(!) to producers. Take a look; how you enjoy it. https://filmfreeway.com/projects/476988

  9. HI Virginie! My name is Paul Batters – an Australian classic film fan and frustrated writer. Just discovered your blog and look forward to reading your posts. I’m new to blogging and have my own page – another person mad for classic film. Also have a warm spot in my heart for Montreal which I visited twice. All the best from down under! Regards, Paul from Silver Screen Classics

  10. Hello there Virginie,

    I just wanted to say hello, and say that its refreshing to find someone blog about ** classic films **, and not blog exclusively about superheros.

    I live in Toronto -just a few hours away. I try to do a blog about films I grew up with at my site https://abitsa.wordpress.com . I just read your piece about Burt Lancaster. Even though I am not a fan of westerns I have seen a few of his. I’m 60, so my experience to film is pretty extensive. I wish my blog looked as good, so take a bow. One film you might enjoy is a film Burt did with Kirk Douglas and Eli Wallach. It came out when you were born. Burt and Kirk are a pair of over the hill gangsters who want to rob one last train before the retire. I can’t remember what Eli does but I do remember this – he hates their guts. The film is called Tough Guys. I watched Seven days in May then Tough Guys. It was a hoot ! Thank god you’re not raving about CGI – classic films are the way to go.
