Thursday Movie Picks: Adaptations

Thursday Movie Picks

Isn’t everything an adaptation these days? I feel like most of what we see is either a remake or an adaptation of a book or a comic book. So it’s not as easy to swim through the amount of adaptations without focus. My focus – adaptations where I have read the book and thought the movie made it work or even elevated it. Oh and also, focusing mostly on the young adult genre adaptations.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Over a Meal

Thursday Movie Picks

This Thursday Movie Picks is special because I’m writing it in an unexpected location – USA! To celebrate my short 5-day trip and the fact that I’m blogging far away from home I wanted to keep this post very American. So this theme actually works out perfectly because what meal is more American than Thanksgiving dinner!? I can’t think of any so here are three recommendations featuring the beloved Thanksgiving dinner.…

Doctor Sleep (2019)

Movie

Back in April 2018 I wrote that the ending of The Shining left a lot of questions unanswered. Well, enter Doctor Sleep that answers all of them while trying to balance the new with the old and dropping some old into the new. This was definitely not an easy task but hey, I think it turned out better than I anticipated.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Politics

Thursday Movie Picks

This weeks’ theme is giving me a small amount of stress because politics is not my thing. I rarely find it interesting because to me it seems like a messy situation run by opinionated people. You could say I’m apolitical, standing in the distance, observing it lightly and definitely not commenting on it. Anyway, this week I’ll try to pick political movies that have all something to do with American politics. Also, I’m a little late with this post (it’s…

Commercial Break: Let’s Get Super Real… and Honest

Commercial Break

It’s been a sh*tty year! Let’s just be honest and admit that I’ve been in a metaphorical sh*thole this entire year. And when I try to get out of it, I fail and it’s starting to feel like this sh*thole is part of my life now. So why not write about it even though I won’t be able to justify the fact that I haven’t been blogging but at least I can explain myself. I honestly hope I can. Will…

Thursday Movie Picks: Scientists

Thursday Movie Picks

We are back to our non-horror related themes and first up it’s scientists! I could think of no better topic for this week because this I can very well connect to sci-fi and well, sci-fi has all kinds of scientists, right!? I mean, I don’t even have to think of a theme within a theme for long because here it is – space scientists. Came up with that in the time it took me to write this intro.…

THURSDAY MOVIE PICKS HALLOWEEN/TELEVISION EDITION: HORROR

Thursday Movie Picks

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Finally, the last Thursday of October is here and I can soon put this months’ horror adventures behind me. Like always, the last Thursday of the month is all about the television shows. The theme is simple, the point is straightforward – we are talking horror. And here are three shows that for me have been horrific but amazing. Oh and since I’ve been lazy lately, this one also has a theme within a theme because why the…

Thursday Movie Picks Halloween Edition: Rituals

Thursday Movie Picks

When I first sat down and saw rituals I thought I was going to grasp for straws here. But as I thought about it a little I realised I have quite a few gems to recommend. All three are decent horror movies but one is especially special among the mediocre. There are good performances, some satanic rituals and well, some pretty gnarly ones too. It’s no wonder rituals are mostly associated with horror movies.…

It Chapter Two (2019)

Movie

It’s been a hot minute since I sat down and wrote a review. It has been so long I feel like I don’t even know how and where to begin. And it has been quite a while since I saw this movie so… let’s see how it holds up! I’ll start with the simplest of ways. I did not love It Chapter Two. The movie had its moments, some of which will forever remain my favourite, but overall, the magic…
