Thursday Movie Picks: Witness

Thursday Movie Picks

When I sat down to recommend movies for this theme, I was in a bit of a rough place. “Witness” is a really specific theme and well, I wanted to go out of my way and do a theme within a theme. So this week I’m recommending three movies, where women witness a murder. Two are mob related, and all three take on a fake identity. Eventually, I had so much fun with this week’s  witness theme!…

Thursday Movie Picks: The Mrs Robinsons

Thursday Movie Picks

My first and only theme I suggested for this years’ Thursday Movie Picks will be about women seducing boys – the Mrs. Robinsons. There could be a few angles one could go with this theme, including the comedy route, but I’m sticking with drama. Also, I feel like it’s important to point out the irony of the Mrs. Robinsons theme – I feel very uninspired this week. And I have no idea why. So if this seems unedited, it’s because…

The Wonderful Things In Stranger Things 3

Tv-show

The summer of 2019 became a whole lot better when Stranger Things 3 aired and transported everyone back to the 80’s. The nostalgia, the adventure, the laughs, the terror and most importantly, the love. While season 3 might be following the familiar patterns of previous seasons, it still delivers one hell of an emotional rollercoaster. Here is my attempt to capture all of that into words.…

Thursday Movie Picks: The Great Outdoors

Documentary Thursday Movie Picks

I think nothing embodies the great outdoors better than documentaries. So for this week, I want to highlight three documentaries that I think are pretty darn good. One of them you have heard a lot about, from me probably, because it is literally my favourite documentary ever. I have already recommended it once this year but hey, I’m breaking the rules here to make this great outdoors list, in my mind, perfect. All of these three documentaries are about climbing.…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Crime

Thursday Movie Picks

This week’s theme is again quite wide in terms of the possibilities. So, like always, I’ve decided to pick a theme within a theme and go with family. But not your typical crime family type crime shows with mob factors but unlikely criminals that drag their family, against their own better judgment, into huge messes. This week’s picks are three very different shows, but all have quite a lot in common as well.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Blockbuster Flops

Thursday Movie Picks

Last week I struggled, this week, I just needed to do some digging. Blockbuster flops are often something that rub me the wrong way and are usually truly bad. Because honestly, if it flops, there’s usually a reason. Anyway, I’m going off by three factors: 1) they made less than their budget, 2) they are rated fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, and 3) I liked them. By narrowing the blockbuster flops this way, I was able to get together a list…

My Five Favourite Episodes of Stranger Things

Top 5 Tv-show

It’s finally time for my first Stranger Things related post this summer. First, before I get to my lengthy season 3 review, I’m bringing you my five favourite episodes from the show so far. So all three seasons are a fair game but I’m picking just five – so you can imagine how difficult this actually was! Like, I really had to crack my brain to narrow it down to five. But I did it and here is a chronological…

Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

Movie

I said before the movie was out, that if anyone was going to handle the emotional impact of Tony Stark’s death, it was Tom Holland. He can act and the guy can really pull on your emotional strings and drag your sorry ass into tears. Yet Spider-Man: Far From Home takes the easy way out. It tries to avoid the emotions and diverts us away from sadness with a more humour filled approach. Can’t say I’m mad about it but…

Thursday Movie Picks: Muses

Thursday Movie Picks

Last week’s Thursday Movie Picks was parenthood, this week it’s muses. But since I’m selfish, I want to make this week all about myself and talk about the characters who inspired me to binge watch a movie. Because that’s how I’m translating this theme – somebody who makes you do silly things because you are so in awe. Anyway, my teen angst muses, ladies and gentlemen.…
