Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Fantasy

Thursday Movie Picks

Fantasy! I love fantasy in book form and I’m quite fond of it on television too. So this week’s list is a joy to compile, even though it’s tricky to differentiate fantasy from sci-fi these days. There is a lot of overlap between the fantasy and science-fiction, and sometimes, I can’t even tell the difference. But, for the purpose of this post, I will keep it in a form of creatures! Fantastic creatures such as dragons, sirens, ghosts etc. I…

Let’s Talk A Bit About the 2019 Emmys

Extra

Well, well, well. It was an important day for television yesterday, when the Emmy awards were given out to the best of the best. I did not watch the Emmy award show itself but I did read through the list of winners, and spent way too long staring at those daring red carpet looks. So I figured I’d talk a little about it and share some of my thoughts about this year’s Emmy awards.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Break-Ups

Thursday Movie Picks

“Let’s break-up!” “I’m joking, I’m joking, we will live happily ever after.” Does this sound familiar? Well, it should, because it’s pretty much every other rom-com out there with these break-ups in the third act. That is getting a little old. Plus, the reason for the break-ups is almost always something completely insane. And mostly, they disregard general human laws, like communication is never happening in these situations. It’s always like something is overheard, then drama and break-up follow, and…

Thursday Movie Picks: Non-English Language Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

Every year I fear this theme because I’m bad with foreign movies. When I see this theme looming, I think to myself, I’ll watch some non-English language movies and get an excellent recommendation list together. Well, this is not the case this time around and I have to list a non-English movie that I was not a fan of. Then again, the other two picks I list here are actually quite good. That being said, the pick I’m not a…

My TV Alphabet

Blogathon Extra Tv-show

Years and years ago I compiled an alphabet of my favourite movies, actors and directors. Every letter corresponded with something or someone I liked, loved, admired. Today I’m sitting down to do the same thing… but with television shows. This is an undertaking of the year for me and I’m quite excited. One of the reasons I wanted to do this is because TV shows have risen to great heights. They are complex, well made, demand a lot of our…

Thursday Movie Picks: Hostage

Thursday Movie Picks

While I probably know many movies with hostage situations, I’m struggling a bit with these very specific themes this year. On one hand, there are so many, on the other, they sort of limit my recommendations to a very specific corner. The themes have taken me hostage, and I’m not liking it. That being said, here are three recommendations revolving around hostage situations that have another common thread. Can you guess what else besides the main theme connects them? I…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Revivals and Reboots

Thursday Movie Picks

Usually I don’t struggle with Television Editions as much as I have this year. Not that the themes are bad, they are absolutely wonderful! But they simply fall into the category of me not having any experience with them. So, instead of bringing you three I have seen, I’m putting together a to-be-continued-list. Having seen most or majority of the original shows, I’m bringing out three revivals that I want to see. Despite me being extremely hesitant about revivals *cough*…

Against the Crowd Blogathon 19′

Blogathon

For multiple years, I have taken part in Dell’s Against the Crowd Blogathon. Last year, because I completely blanked out about it, I missed it. This year I’m participating again because this is one fun blogathon! The idea is to pick one movie that everyone loves but you dislike, and vice versa. To go against the crowd! I’ve traditionally picked romance movies to defend so this year won’t be any different. It’s also a bit sad that I have so…

Thursday Movie Picks: Actors in Multiple Roles

Thursday Movie Picks

With multiple roles theme, I had an instant thought to go for the easy way out and pick twins. There are many actors who have played both twin versions, and it would have been fun. But.. I decided to go with a less obvious route. Meaning, I’m recommending three movies where actors play multiple roles but aren’t necessarily the same person. You would say it’s a doppelgänger theme within a theme, except one, which is totally different. It’s a bit…

Thursday Movie Picks: Witness

Thursday Movie Picks

When I sat down to recommend movies for this theme, I was in a bit of a rough place. “Witness” is a really specific theme and well, I wanted to go out of my way and do a theme within a theme. So this week I’m recommending three movies, where women witness a murder. Two are mob related, and all three take on a fake identity. Eventually, I had so much fun with this week’s  witness theme!…
