Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: TV Series Based on Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

This week’s theme was a bit of a challenge for me. Television Edition weeks usually aren’t but there aren’t that many shows based on movies. If there are, I haven’t seen most of them, so there’s inevitably not a lot to choose from. I did go with movies I’ve seen and in one case, I’ve also seen the show. I think I’ve seen parts of one show but I can’t remember.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Secret Doorways / Worlds

Thursday Movie Picks

There is a sense of whimsy about this week’s theme and I love it! Secret doorways and worlds are mostly fantasy related to me and I adore fantasy! True, the book genre is more successful compared to the movie genre but that’s okay. For this week I’ve found three recommendations about secret doorways and/or worlds that I consider mediocre. It’s not that they are bad, they just… haven’t been made with care. Ironically, all three have a 5.8 or 5.9…

The Sinner (Season 1, Season 2 & Season 3)

Tv-show

In the beginning I wanted  to review three seasons of The Sinner all separately but then I went on and binged all of it in a few days. In other words, it made sense to talk about each season of The Sinner in one post. This one will most likely be a bit of a long one so grab some coffee, take your time and let’s bring on the sinners.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Male Buddy Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

This week we are looking more closely to the movies that could be categorised as male buddy movies. Now, I would be lying if I’d say I wasn’t stuck with this theme. Initially I thought male buddy movies are comedies (which I don’t like) or adventure/teen movies (which I haven’t seen many). So to find a common theme and keep with the male buddy theme became a true challenge this week. But I did it (with a twist) and here…

My Five Favourite Songs From Hamilton

Music Top 5

Thanks to Disney I finally got to see Hamilton. Living in Europe sometimes has its perks but it also means missing out on Broadway. Though I’m not a huge fan of musicals, in recent years, Hamilton caught my attention and I really wanted to see it. Over the years I heard some songs but out of context, without the stage, the actors and the actual musical numbers, the songs didn’t really have meaning. Now after seeing Hamilton with my own…

Thursday Movie Picks Seven Deadly Sins Edition: Wrath

Thursday Movie Picks

We are almost at the end of our Seven Deadly Sins edition and it’s time for wrath! I thought long and hard what to include and then I saw this: in its purest form, wrath presents with injury, violence, and hate that may provoke feuds that can go on for centuries. So I’m recommending three movies that revolve around racism. A form of unwarranted wrath embedded so deep into society that people are filled with hate for no reason. All…

Hidden Gems: Sam Rockwell

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

Part of me thought I had one more day of June but turns out that was not correct so here we are. On the last day of June, discussing three Sam Rockwell movies and trying to find a hidden gem. This month was strange to say at least. Rockwell has had a lot of smaller roles and I happened to see two of them. Needless to say, I feel like I didn’t get my Rockwell fix at all.…

Commercial Break: More Like a Huge List … but Also a Catch Up

Commercial Break

It’s been another hot minute but I’m back with an epic Commercial Break! In other words, I’m here to give a quick update on my boring life and list all the things I’ve seen and read. Honestly, it’s been so long (my fault completely) that I will most likely forget like half of what I’ve done. Which, considering the quarantine, isn’t much to begin with. Oh, the irony of life. Plus, while I’m writing this list, it’s like a sauna…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Book to TV Adaptations

Thursday Movie Picks

It’s that time of the month again where instead of movies I recommend TV shows. It’s always exciting but this month I get to talk about book to TV adaptations! Now, since I haven’t done this type of recommendation list before, I figured I could make this week even more special. So, instead of recommending adaptations that exist, I’m listing shows that are coming out in the (hopefully) near future. Since this pandemic is still affecting our lives and everything…
