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…

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*…

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!…

Thursday Movie Picks: The Mrs Robinsons

Thursday Movie Picks

My first and only theme I suggested for this years’ Thursday Movie Picks will be about women seducing boys – the Mrs. Robinsons. There could be a few angles one could go with this theme, including the comedy route, but I’m sticking with drama. Also, I feel like it’s important to point out the irony of the Mrs. Robinsons theme – I feel very uninspired this week. And I have no idea why. So if this seems unedited, it’s because…

Thursday Movie Picks: The Great Outdoors

Documentary Thursday Movie Picks

I think nothing embodies the great outdoors better than documentaries. So for this week, I want to highlight three documentaries that I think are pretty darn good. One of them you have heard a lot about, from me probably, because it is literally my favourite documentary ever. I have already recommended it once this year but hey, I’m breaking the rules here to make this great outdoors list, in my mind, perfect. All of these three documentaries are about climbing.…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Crime

Thursday Movie Picks

This week’s theme is again quite wide in terms of the possibilities. So, like always, I’ve decided to pick a theme within a theme and go with family. But not your typical crime family type crime shows with mob factors but unlikely criminals that drag their family, against their own better judgment, into huge messes. This week’s picks are three very different shows, but all have quite a lot in common as well.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Blockbuster Flops

Thursday Movie Picks

Last week I struggled, this week, I just needed to do some digging. Blockbuster flops are often something that rub me the wrong way and are usually truly bad. Because honestly, if it flops, there’s usually a reason. Anyway, I’m going off by three factors: 1) they made less than their budget, 2) they are rated fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, and 3) I liked them. By narrowing the blockbuster flops this way, I was able to get together a list…
