Thursday Movie Picks: Police Detectives

Thursday Movie Picks

It was pure coincidence that I watched the Trial 4 docuseries on Netflix which is about some corrupt police detectives right before writing this. Trial 4 made me super angry because I get frustrated at the justice system for making mistakes and then going out of their way to cover those mistakes up. Anyway, in the light of my frustration towards police detectives I picked a theme within a theme. Here are three movies about police detectives that are led…

Thursday Movie Picks: 2020 Releases

Thursday Movie Picks

Honestly, I completely forgot it was Thursday so if this feels rushed, it’s because it is. I’ve been trying to read and I’m also nursing a huge Stardew Valley addiction which occupies most my free evenings now. Anyway, to make this into a theme within the releases theme I’m going with the documentary route. I saw a lot of docuseries as well as documentaries in 2020, most last years releases. I hope I keep up with this new found curiosity…

All The 60 Shows, Mini- & Docuseries I Saw in 2020 – Part 1

Tv-show

As you can probably tell by the title I’m gathering up ALL the shows I watched in 2020. Not just the full on TV-shows but also miniseries and documentary miniseries as well. There’s going to be A LOT of different things here which is why it’s also divided into two parts. It’s not technically a worst to best list but Part 2 will contain 15 of my favourites. The main idea is just to show you guys that I watched…

Thursday Movie Picks Oscars Winners Edition: Best Picture

Thursday Movie Picks

We are back at it again with Thursday Movie Picks. This is my fifth full year participating this wonderful series created by Wandering Through the Shelves and I don’t plan to stop yet. If you also want to participate you can find the 2021 list of themes here! As you can see from the title there’s an added theme going on in 2021, Oscar Winners. It will be definitely a difficult theme for me to navigate but let’s give it…

Hidden Gems Movie Challenge 2021

Hidden Gems

We are back, back again, back with the Hidden Gems Movie Challenge. And honestly, I’m so damn happy for this 2021 edition because it means 2020 is over! Fuck yeah!! More importantly, I’ve got 12 more filmographies of actors/actresses to explore and possibly find that hidden gem. But as you can probably see this year is all about my UK talents!…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Space / Aliens

Thursday Movie Picks

We wrap up 2020 with some space / aliens! Seems rather fitting since this entire year has felt like an alien version of its predecessors. We are also ending it on a TV note, which is nice but also a little frustrating. You see I don’t know many space / aliens shows. Most of them I’ve mentioned already anyway. So making this 2020’s last Thursday Movie Picks a bit special and listing three space related shows I still need to…

Hidden Gems: Chris Evans

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

You knew I was going to leave Chris Evans last in this Hidden Gems adventure I had this year. Though I eventually had to squeeze two in one month, it all turned out well. The choices for December, Chris and Adam (who you read about yesterday, hopefully), were brilliant in terms of viewing pleasure. Leaving Hidden Gems with Chris Evans last was also a good decision. I ended on a relatively good note – that’s what I’m basically saying.…

Hidden Gems: Adam Driver

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

The end is near and due to a mishap by me the end is also very fruitful. In other words, there will be two Hidden Gems posts in a row, one today and one tomorrow. Considering I also watched 24 bad Christmas movies this month my December has been one hectic sprint to the very end. But oh how it was so worth it. And when it comes to Hidden Gems Adam Driver I was enjoying myself throughout! December just…

Thursday Movie Picks: Holiday Action Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

Ho-ho-ho, Merry Christmas! This feels like the most un-holiday-festive year since I can remember but let’s try to get past that. So grab your ginger bread cookies and a cup of hot chocolate and let’s bring some action into the holidays! Since 2020 went rogue on us this year I decided to go very rogue with this week’s theme. Let’s have a bit of fun, eh!? I mean who wants to see Die Hard mentioned in every list, right? So…

Thursday Movie Picks: Films Directed by a Female Director

Thursday Movie Picks

I had this brilliant plan to watch 52 movies directed by women in 2020. I even made a Letterboxd list. Well, this year has not gone according to plan so I will be trying to finish my list by 2021. At this point (at the end of November) I’ve seen 19 out of which two are co-directed with men. It’s not a lot and it’s a shame but I feel like giving more attention to the lack of female directors…
