Thursday Movie Picks: Female Buddy Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

Despite being a female myself, I haven’t seen many female buddy movies. When I think of buddy movies I go instantly for the comedy. It’s just a natural way to go. And I think comedy isn’t my favourite genre at the moment so I don’t have many to recommend. So instead of taking the funny route, I tried to pick less obvious way. Here are three female buddy movies that are a bit darker. As always, there’s a theme within…

Palm Springs (2020)

Movie

Maybe it’s the fact that I haven’t seen many newly released movies lately. It could also be because I saw a lot (and I mean a lot) of bad movies right before seeing Palm Springs. But one thing is for certain, Palm Springs is one hell of a treat! It has it all: a surprising element, romance, humour and great performances. If 2020 would end now, Palm Springs would probably be one of my favourites of this entire year.…

Thursday Movie Picks: School

Thursday Movie Picks

With September nearing, school is on many of our minds. For me it’s not necessarily about starting school or having somebody to send to school but mostly the idea of starting fresh. I feel like the energy from summer just gives fall a nice push. Anyway for today’s theme I went with movies that revolve around school. As always I added my own little theme within a theme.…

Thursday Movie Picks Seven Deadly Sins Edition: Pride

Thursday Movie Picks

This is the seventh deadly sin which unfortunately brings this special edition Thursday Movie Picks theme to an end. Last but not least we have pride. For me pride is the hardest to pin point because it’s not necessarily a bad word. While others have more negative connections to the word, pride can be a positive thing. Though partnered with sin I guess pride can also be super bad. Anyway, I’m taking a strange route and delivering three movies where…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: TV Series Based on Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

This week’s theme was a bit of a challenge for me. Television Edition weeks usually aren’t but there aren’t that many shows based on movies. If there are, I haven’t seen most of them, so there’s inevitably not a lot to choose from. I did go with movies I’ve seen and in one case, I’ve also seen the show. I think I’ve seen parts of one show but I can’t remember.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Secret Doorways / Worlds

Thursday Movie Picks

There is a sense of whimsy about this week’s theme and I love it! Secret doorways and worlds are mostly fantasy related to me and I adore fantasy! True, the book genre is more successful compared to the movie genre but that’s okay. For this week I’ve found three recommendations about secret doorways and/or worlds that I consider mediocre. It’s not that they are bad, they just… haven’t been made with care. Ironically, all three have a 5.8 or 5.9…

The Sinner (Season 1, Season 2 & Season 3)

Tv-show

In the beginning I wanted  to review three seasons of The Sinner all separately but then I went on and binged all of it in a few days. In other words, it made sense to talk about each season of The Sinner in one post. This one will most likely be a bit of a long one so grab some coffee, take your time and let’s bring on the sinners.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Male Buddy Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

This week we are looking more closely to the movies that could be categorised as male buddy movies. Now, I would be lying if I’d say I wasn’t stuck with this theme. Initially I thought male buddy movies are comedies (which I don’t like) or adventure/teen movies (which I haven’t seen many). So to find a common theme and keep with the male buddy theme became a true challenge this week. But I did it (with a twist) and here…

My Five Favourite Songs From Hamilton

Music Top 5

Thanks to Disney I finally got to see Hamilton. Living in Europe sometimes has its perks but it also means missing out on Broadway. Though I’m not a huge fan of musicals, in recent years, Hamilton caught my attention and I really wanted to see it. Over the years I heard some songs but out of context, without the stage, the actors and the actual musical numbers, the songs didn’t really have meaning. Now after seeing Hamilton with my own…
