Thursday Movie Picks: Police Detectives

Thursday Movie Picks

It was pure coincidence that I watched the Trial 4 docuseries on Netflix which is about some corrupt police detectives right before writing this. Trial 4 made me super angry because I get frustrated at the justice system for making mistakes and then going out of their way to cover those mistakes up. Anyway, in the light of my frustration towards police detectives I picked a theme within a theme. Here are three movies about police detectives that are led…

Thursday Movie Picks: 2020 Releases

Thursday Movie Picks

Honestly, I completely forgot it was Thursday so if this feels rushed, it’s because it is. I’ve been trying to read and I’m also nursing a huge Stardew Valley addiction which occupies most my free evenings now. Anyway, to make this into a theme within the releases theme I’m going with the documentary route. I saw a lot of docuseries as well as documentaries in 2020, most last years releases. I hope I keep up with this new found curiosity…

Thursday Movie Picks Oscars Winners Edition: Best Picture

Thursday Movie Picks

We are back at it again with Thursday Movie Picks. This is my fifth full year participating this wonderful series created by Wandering Through the Shelves and I don’t plan to stop yet. If you also want to participate you can find the 2021 list of themes here! As you can see from the title there’s an added theme going on in 2021, Oscar Winners. It will be definitely a difficult theme for me to navigate but let’s give it…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Space / Aliens

Thursday Movie Picks

We wrap up 2020 with some space / aliens! Seems rather fitting since this entire year has felt like an alien version of its predecessors. We are also ending it on a TV note, which is nice but also a little frustrating. You see I don’t know many space / aliens shows. Most of them I’ve mentioned already anyway. So making this 2020’s last Thursday Movie Picks a bit special and listing three space related shows I still need to…

Thursday Movie Picks: Holiday Action Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

Ho-ho-ho, Merry Christmas! This feels like the most un-holiday-festive year since I can remember but let’s try to get past that. So grab your ginger bread cookies and a cup of hot chocolate and let’s bring some action into the holidays! Since 2020 went rogue on us this year I decided to go very rogue with this week’s theme. Let’s have a bit of fun, eh!? I mean who wants to see Die Hard mentioned in every list, right? So…

Thursday Movie Picks: Films Directed by a Female Director

Thursday Movie Picks

I had this brilliant plan to watch 52 movies directed by women in 2020. I even made a Letterboxd list. Well, this year has not gone according to plan so I will be trying to finish my list by 2021. At this point (at the end of November) I’ve seen 19 out of which two are co-directed with men. It’s not a lot and it’s a shame but I feel like giving more attention to the lack of female directors…

Thursday Movie Picks: Movies for Seniors / The Elderly

Thursday Movie Picks

While this theme seems like a great way to ask my grandparents what they watch I feel like it’s also a strange way to say some movies are just for seniors. Granted there are some movies that fit into this theme but also I feel like my grandmother watches different things. She saw Wonder Woman and loved it so you’ll never know with seniors these days. Anyway I did go with something that I thought was like a fitting theme…

Thursday Movie Picks: Adaptations

Thursday Movie Picks

Just like last year the final month of the year starts with a Thursday Movie Picks theme that is basically like the widest net you can throw: adaptations. Most movies these days seem to be adaptations of books or comic books, and the other half is remaking old classics. This is an exaggeration of course but you get my point. The theme is too wide so I narrowed it down to one specific literary genre. Then I realised I put…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Non-English

Thursday Movie Picks

Another Television Edition and we’re back at it with Non-English shows. I love this theme because this has pushed me into watching more shows on Netflix. More diverse shows. And honestly, I didn’t have to even try this year. I had three picks ready and all of them made in Scandinavia. There was a plan to throw a Danish show into this list and make it a trifecta but I didn’t have time to see any. Though have no fear,…
