Double Feature: Practical Magic and Hocus Pocus

Double Feature Movie

I’m back with another Double Feature post and this time I’m diving into Practical Magic and Hocus Pocus. Saw these back to back about a week ago and just had a great evening. I’ve seen them before, more than once. But sometimes it’s good to just return to movies you’ve seen and know what you’re going to get. That’s the joy of Practical Magic and Hocus Pocus – they are my comfort movies.…

Thursday Movie Picks Halloween Edition: Horror Movie Houses

Thursday Movie Picks

It seemed like yesterday we were getting ready for 2019 Halloween but here we are again. Thursday Movie Picks focuses on horror in October and first up are horror movie houses. Now this seems to me more like a deco recommendation than a movie one. I love that though! So I dug deep and tried to think of horror movie houses that are creepy as hell. Putting aside the movies almost completely. So here are three horror movie houses that…

Hidden Gems: Chadwick Boseman

Actor/Actress Hidden Gems

With the sudden passing of Chadwick Boseman I decided to dedicate Hidden Gems September to him. Honouring his movies, some of them he made while battling cancer, because that’s literally all I can do. There are no words to describe the sadness I felt while watching this months’ movies. It was… for a lack of a better word – heartbreaking.…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Journalism

Thursday Movie Picks

Having to list something based on a theme you yourself recommended (journalism of course) is ironic. I’m was excited about journalism at the end of 2019 because I work in journalism. Also when I recommended this theme I had just seen one of my recommendations! Now many months later the plan I had has escaped me and now I don’t know what I was thinking. Anyway, here’s my three not so theme within theme recommendations. There is a bit of…

Double Feature: The Babysitter and The Babysitter Killer Queen

Double Feature Movie

Saw The Babysitter and Killer Queen back to back the other day and figured, oh, what a lovely double feature. Hence the new Double Feature feature I guess. Even though I have pinned sequels together here it won’t be always like this. I was thinking more of a genre match or a mood connection, what ever works in that moment. Anyway, this is two movie reviews in one and I’m gonna start doing these more often. First up: The Babysitter…

Thursday Movie Picks: The Band

Thursday Movie Picks

I don’t know why I leave these things to the last minute these days but here we are – the band! Or more precisely the bands! I initially had a hard time coming up with a theme to stick into the theme but again, still gave it ago. Then I realised it was literally 10PM on a Thursday and I was running out of time. But I think my best ideas always come to me in the last minute. So…

My Brother Jordan (2020)

Documentary

Rarely do I find something on Youtube that literally crawls into my soul and crushes me. My Brother Jordan is not necessarily a story I’d seek out myself. It’s filled with sadness and it’s about missing a part of you that can never be replaced. In a grander scheme of things, it’s a love letter to an amazing brother. And I mean.. just thinking about it is making me cry but I don’t regret clicking on a documentary video on…

Thursday Movie Picks: Non-English Language Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

Every year the Non-English theme comes along and I get a little flustered. It’s not that I haven’t seen any but I just can’t theme-within-a-theme them. But today, I can! I wanted to include three that had the same fate but alas, I didn’t have time to watch the movie I thought of. Busy-busy-busy but that’s okay, this list of Non-English language movies is still pretty darn good in my opinion and I loved all three of these for different…
