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…

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…

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.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Parenthood

Thursday Movie Picks

With a theme that has so much variety, it’s so great to add another theme within. This week I thought about parenthood’s difficulties and the hardships of having a child. Or, in other ways, having a child and then loosing them. Because I thought about the fact that once you become a parent, you never loose that part of yourself. Even if the worlds rips it away from you.…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Gangsters

Thursday Movie Picks

Searching for this topic made me realise I’ve really missed out on good gangster themed shows. So instead of listing recommendations of shows I have seen I’m compiling a shame list. These are three shows that heavily feature gangsters but I haven’t seen yet. I say yet because I do plan to see them some day… who knows when, but it’s going to happen, I promise.…

Thursday Movie Picks

Well hello there. It is me, long time no post. It’s been literally hectic and crazy over here. Most of which I don’t even want to discuss and some of it I can’t discuss. But as you can tell from the title, I missed last week’s Thursday Movie Picks so I’m bringing you 6 recommendations today. This is the first time I’ve missed a week and it actually hurt my soul a little. Here’s hoping I won’t miss any more.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Nannies / Babysitters

Thursday Movie Picks

Welcome to another week of movie recommendations – the only posts I seem to keep up with. This week we’re taking a look at nannies and babysitters. But as it is common for me these days, I’m adding my twist to it, and featuring three MALE babysitters in this list. One recommendation is awesome, two are alright. It’s not the best week but hey, sometimes you need to have a bad one to recognise the good ones.…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Secret Agents/Spies

Thursday Movie Picks

Alright, I’m breaking all the rules this week! Which, ironically, is what special agents and spies usually do. They have all these rules for being a spy, they get a mission, then they go off the map and break all the rules. It’s a multilayered post here on Mettel Ray this week. Also, I’m time traveling in all the shows because that’s my theme within a theme this week. Plus I’m mentioning a show I’ve already mentioned and a show…
