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…

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…

Thursday Movie Picks: Domestic Thrillers

Uncategorized

How is it September already? 2020 feels like a constant blow to the head and it has sucked all the energy out of me so the concept of time has escaped me. That being said, let’s talk about domestic thrillers. First thing that comes to mind with this theme is home type setting. If this is not it, sorry, I can’t really pinpoint the actual theme that well then. So as you can tell I’m confused. And not really sure…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Prequel

Thursday Movie Picks

Sitting down for this week’s Thursday Movie Picks is actually making me anxious. Television Edition usually comes to me with a certain amount of ease but not this week. I cannot for the life of me remember any show that is a prequel. Yes, I know there are some, probably even a bunch but I can’t think of any. The problem of the prequel theme is that I have not seen them. So let’s see how this one turned out,…

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…

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…

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…
