Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Journalism

Thursday Movie Picks

Having to list something based on a theme you yourself recommended (journalism of course) is ironic. I’m was excited about journalism at the end of 2019 because I work in journalism. Also when I recommended this theme I had just seen one of my recommendations! Now many months later the plan I had has escaped me and now I don’t know what I was thinking. Anyway, here’s my three not so theme within theme recommendations. There is a bit of…

Double Feature: The Babysitter and The Babysitter Killer Queen

Double Feature Movie

Saw The Babysitter and Killer Queen back to back the other day and figured, oh, what a lovely double feature. Hence the new Double Feature feature I guess. Even though I have pinned sequels together here it won’t be always like this. I was thinking more of a genre match or a mood connection, what ever works in that moment. Anyway, this is two movie reviews in one and I’m gonna start doing these more often. First up: The Babysitter…

Thursday Movie Picks: The Band

Thursday Movie Picks

I don’t know why I leave these things to the last minute these days but here we are – the band! Or more precisely the bands! I initially had a hard time coming up with a theme to stick into the theme but again, still gave it ago. Then I realised it was literally 10PM on a Thursday and I was running out of time. But I think my best ideas always come to me in the last minute. So…

My Brother Jordan (2020)

Documentary

Rarely do I find something on Youtube that literally crawls into my soul and crushes me. My Brother Jordan is not necessarily a story I’d seek out myself. It’s filled with sadness and it’s about missing a part of you that can never be replaced. In a grander scheme of things, it’s a love letter to an amazing brother. And I mean.. just thinking about it is making me cry but I don’t regret clicking on a documentary video on…

Thursday Movie Picks: Non-English Language Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

Every year the Non-English theme comes along and I get a little flustered. It’s not that I haven’t seen any but I just can’t theme-within-a-theme them. But today, I can! I wanted to include three that had the same fate but alas, I didn’t have time to watch the movie I thought of. Busy-busy-busy but that’s okay, this list of Non-English language movies is still pretty darn good in my opinion and I loved all three of these for different…

Love, Guaranteed (2020)

Movie

After watching Love, Guaranteed and penning its very quick and yet informative review on Letterboxd I decided to dive deeper. Not just because this movie deserves a deeper, more in depth review but because I really wanted to get all my frustration out. Netflix rom-coms seem to be the perfect victims for this need to rant. They are too cheesy and too unaware of the cringe they produce. Or is it exactly what people want?! Is Love, Guaranteed the kind…

Thursday Movie Picks: Domestic Thrillers

Uncategorized

How is it September already? 2020 feels like a constant blow to the head and it has sucked all the energy out of me so the concept of time has escaped me. That being said, let’s talk about domestic thrillers. First thing that comes to mind with this theme is home type setting. If this is not it, sorry, I can’t really pinpoint the actual theme that well then. So as you can tell I’m confused. And not really sure…

Hidden Gems: Emma Stone

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

The month of August has come to an end and that means it is time for Hidden Gems. As some of you might remember, I skipped July and I’m only now getting back on track. I’m also making a small change in the Hidden Gems lineup. August was supposed to be Keira Knightley’s month but I’m going to be honouring Chadwick Boseman in the middle of September instead. It just.. feels like the right thing to do since a talented…

Tenet (2020)

Movie

The day has finally arrived. Christopher Nolan’s Tenet is out there in the world! Unfortunately not everyone can enjoy it on the big screen and I must emphasise that this is not important enough to risk your health. Stay home if you need to. But… if you do have a chance, I recommend watching this on a big screen. Because despite it having a few flaws it’s still a great cinematic experience. And you could see my country, Estonia, on…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Prequel

Thursday Movie Picks

Sitting down for this week’s Thursday Movie Picks is actually making me anxious. Television Edition usually comes to me with a certain amount of ease but not this week. I cannot for the life of me remember any show that is a prequel. Yes, I know there are some, probably even a bunch but I can’t think of any. The problem of the prequel theme is that I have not seen them. So let’s see how this one turned out,…
