Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Non-English

Thursday Movie Picks

Another Television Edition and we’re back at it with Non-English shows. I love this theme because this has pushed me into watching more shows on Netflix. More diverse shows. And honestly, I didn’t have to even try this year. I had three picks ready and all of them made in Scandinavia. There was a plan to throw a Danish show into this list and make it a trifecta but I didn’t have time to see any. Though have no fear,…

Thursday Movie Picks: Favorite Cinematography

Thursday Movie Picks

This week’s theme of cinematography is the kind that could go either way. I could go with any beautiful looking movie or any stunning scene that I remember for its cinematography. Do I have solid favourites? Probably not. I feel like there are too many to choose from. So I did what I do best. I went with a theme within a theme and that helped me narrow things down.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Bookish Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

Despite this weeks theme being probably one of my favourites, I felt especially uninspired. For some reason I couldn’t think of three bookish movies that I like. There are definitely more but I feel like I would need to go more scene by scene for that to happen. Many characters being bookish, reading books and just having a bookish demeanour. But in a movie that’s not necessarily bookish itself. Anyway I did end up with three, one of which is…

Hidden Gems: Amy Adams

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

New month, new Hidden Gems challenge. This month I was looking into the career of Amy Adams. An actress that has been bringing it for years but whose filmography is not very familiar to me. Leaving out her miniseries Sharp Objects which I contemplated on watching for this at one point, I crossed off three of her movies to find a hidden gem.…

Thursday Movie Picks Halloween/Television Edition: Horror

Thursday Movie Picks

October wraps up with a halloween/television edition and I’ve really gone above and beyond for this. During this month I watched six new to me movies and now I’ve seen two new, one rewatched “mini-series” in the horror genre. Granted, two of these aren’t so horror after all but they are classified as such on IMDb. So this is more like a light halloween/television edition, horror elements but not scary-scary. Super proud of myself for seeing these shows because two…

Love and Monsters (2020)

Movie

The more I think about this movie, the more I love it. Love and Monsters in hindsight is another movie set after an apocalypse but it has much more going for it. At first I wasn’t sure I was going to review it. Not sure why but I wasn’t like immediately jumping at the opportunity. So… I watched it again and now here we are. What shall we do now? Well, we shall gush and lust and then share the…

Thursday Movie Picks Halloween Edition: Holiday Horror

Thursday Movie Picks

This the season to be merry – la-la la-la la-la-la or no, wait, it’s still October! Well that just means holiday horror movies it is. This week I’ve watched three new to me horror movies (I know, who am I?) and all of them were actually quite okay. The first one was a bit of a miss but the second two were fun. All of these fall into the horror comedy genre which means they are great also for actual…

Thursday Movie Picks Halloween Edition: Snow / Winter Horror

Thursday Movie Picks

Considering the fact that Horror Edition is yearly and takes up five weeks I should be more prepared, right? Well I don’t know how to prepare, apparently. So for this week I watched three fairly recent snow / winter related horror movies. One of them was not good, the other was garbage and the third hit the spot. Meaning instead of recommendations, come join me this week for three mini-reviews. Theme within a theme besides the snow / winter is…

Double Feature: Practical Magic and Hocus Pocus

Double Feature Movie

I’m back with another Double Feature post and this time I’m diving into Practical Magic and Hocus Pocus. Saw these back to back about a week ago and just had a great evening. I’ve seen them before, more than once. But sometimes it’s good to just return to movies you’ve seen and know what you’re going to get. That’s the joy of Practical Magic and Hocus Pocus – they are my comfort movies.…
