Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: 2019 Freshmen Series

Thursday Movie Picks

Last year I watched more shows than previous years because I stopped reading as much. This year is seemingly going the same route and honestly, I’m not very sad about this. Television shows have become so good and more big name talents are going to do television. In other words, picking three 2019 freshmen shows was not an easy task. There were many good choices among the freshmen and I’m struggling to find a coherent theme… until I found one.…

1917 trailer movie still george mackay

1917 (2019)

Movie

Seeing 1917 a week ago left its mark. To say I was a emotional after seeing the movie would be an understatement. I was, for the lack of a better word, a wreck. Not just because I tend to get emotional about war movies in the first place but because 1917 was a good movie aiming for an emotional impact. A movie that I’ve wanted to write about for a week… but didn’t find the right words for. I found…

Recently I discovered that I have been enjoying quite a lot of theme songs. Like, enjoying to a point where I don’t even fast forward the opening credits because I want to hear the song. So I wanted to share them with you guys. Which, ironically, makes this week very music oriented with Thursday Movie Picks focusing on unforgettable film scores. Anyway, here are five TV-show theme songs I’ve recently enjoyed and loved!…

Thursday Movie Picks: Unforgettable Film Scores

Thursday Movie Picks

Film scores have such an important part in creating a mood and elevating the images on screen. Unfortunately I’m a very lousy movie lover when it comes to scores and I definitely don’t pay enough attention. Mostly because I’m more of a visual person than auditory. There are, despite my lack of awareness towards scores, a few that have stood out. These are three film scores that I have listened to from start to finish… more than once.…

Sex Education (Season 2)

Tv-show

Last year, around this time, I fell in love with Sex Education. A quirky UK original Netflix show about teenagers and their sex problems. It was funny, emotional and I definitely rooted for most of the characters. Now that season 2 is out I can safely say that Sex Education is still one of the best shows! Still hilarious, still relevant and still telling diverse stories that are very important. It also brings on screen an unique Romeo and Juliet…

My Top 5 Favourite Books I Read in 2019

Fictional Friday

This year I’m trying to bring back my Fictional Friday feature where I share something book related every (other) week. I don’t want to make any promises, as you know, last year was a blogging disaster for me. Especially when it came to book posts which I think were non-existent. Yet, your girl still loves books and is surrounded by them daily (literally sleeping in between bookshelves, guys). In other words, it’s time to share my favourite books from 2019.…

Looking Back: 10 Movies That Shaped Me in the Last Decade

Extra

One of the hardest things for me, even after blogging for close to 10 years, is listing things. Listing movies in a particular order, naming favourite TV shows, putting performances in a certain row – just any kind of list and I’m hyperventilating. So instead I’m deluding the pressure by creating a non-list list. In other words, I’m going to talk about 10 movies that shaped me in the past 10 years. It’s a tribute to the movies that left…

Thursday Movie Picks: Favorite Films by Steven Spielberg

Thursday Movie Picks

Well, it’s another Thursday and this time I’m recommending my three favourites from the filmography of Steven Spielberg. To be very honest, I had to look it up because for the life of me, I couldn’t think of any from the top of my head. It might be my brain but it also might be the fact that I love these movies but I never think about them as Steven Spielberg movies. I don’t know why, it just somehow never…

Spinning Out (Season 1)

Tv-show

Before I start my Spinning Out review, here’s a bit of background information. One of my all time favourite romance novels is From Lukov With Love by Mariana Zapata. It tells a story of Jasmine, an ice skater who is suddenly given an opportunity to skate competitively again. The catch, she has to partner up with her enemy, Ivan, and learn to skate in pairs. I love this book and going into Spinning Out I hoped this show would bring…
