Who would have guessed a Youtube Original series would have such a huge impact on me that I wanted to review it. And not in a bad way either, even though I love those hate rambles, because Origin is really really good! I’m not even saying this in a way that it’s good for a Youtube show. It’s good enough to stand next to Netflix really, at least in my opinion.
This theme required a bit of work because I didn’t want to go into the blockbuster territory with my recommendations. But because I’m so unaware in regards to what’s coming out otherwise, I had to look for answers. In other words, I researched for movies for this post. And I truly wanted to look forward to movies other than Marvel.
Also, what a bitter sweet moment – this is the last movie related Thursday Movie Picks of 2018! I’ve been on time (I think I missed one Thursday, and posted it on Friday instead), and kept up the entire year! Yaaas! And I’m for sure keeping it up in 2019!
Have you guys heard of Black Nights Film Festival? No? Well, it’s one of 15 A-category film festivals in the world and one of the biggest in the North-Europe. It’s also held in Tallinn, Estonia where I happen to live! This year it was held from the 16th of November to the 2nd of December, every day. There were over 200 feature films and over 300 shorts and animations. This year I was also lucky enough to receive a VIP pass to the festival. I saw 9 films (I just couldn’t manage more with my work), and here are my Top 5 films I saw during the festival.
Look what we have here, another Commercial Break, and just a week after the previous one! Your girl is improving her blogging skills and getting used to the time management stuff. Though, still no reviews but I promise, I’m on a mission to get at least 5 written by next week!
Though there are various things to celebrate all year around, it feels like December is a global party in general! From one grandmother’s house to the other, from your significant other parents to yours, from dinner parties to raging New Year’s shindigs. December is a party month, and here are my party movie recommendations.
It’s been another hot minute since I last posted a Commercial Break but I’m determined to keep this feature up and running. Hopefully I figure out a better alternative for 2019, because it’s clear that keeping these weekly posts going might not the best solution. But, it’s still 2018, and there’s no time to waste – here’s what’s been happening.
This post about meeting parents comes to you in a haste of trying to get organised… And I’m so far from organised. I get all my work stuff done, and then more things come up and I neglect my blog every week. But this weekend I will try to catch up with as much as I can! Anyway, here’s this week’s recommendations.
PS: New preliminary schedule for TMP 2019 is up, and it looks so good already! I also gave to theme recommendations which I think are awesome… but maybe it’s just me.
It’s an ironic week for me because I’ve technically done this theme as a cheat. You see, when we were supposed to list non-English shows last year, I had not seen many, so I opted for adaptations from non-English shows. See what I did there? Well, you can check that one out here, and see how I rocked this week with another FOUR recommendations.
When I sat down to watch The Graduate, I only knew its famous last scene where the characters drive off in a bus, looking sad and defeated. There wasn’t even a moment where I thought this is the movie with the famous “Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me!” quote!! Like, this is where the Mrs. Robinson figure of speech comes from. A bit baffled by it, I continued watching and here are my final thoughts.
The pressure is on, because this week’s theme is my second and last recommendation for this year’s Thursday Movie Picks. When I came up with this recommendation, I knew that I had to pick three good non-linear timelines for this list. Though I do have a sort of a negative comment towards one of the movies, it’s still a good movie. Check out which one I’m talking about!
