Thursday Movie Picks: Parties

This the season to party… no matter how intimate, how wild, with co-workers or with strangers, December usually means parties. In some way or the other, everyone has had or will have at least one party this month, even if it’s a at-home-in-pjs-drinking-wine-alone kind of party. So here are three movies for inspiration that showcase some form of enthusiastic parties and party goers.

Thursday Movie Picks: Video/Arcade/Board Game Movies

Alright, so continuing with the general theme of games this week (last week it was toys), the focus is on video, arcade and board games. Now, I struggled with this a bit because I had one recommendation in my mind but past that, I had to think really hard. And alright, I had to go through my Letterboxd list because I couldn’t think of any. But in the end, I did it, and I actually have an extra special recommendation for a movie that won’t come out until 2018!

Thursday Movie Picks: My Comfort Movies

Now, with this week’s topic I was a bit conflicted with myself, because comfort can be a very wide term.

But then there are movies I feel so comfortable with that they also comfort me, and those range from crime to documentaries. So I thought, mix it up, and here are four different genre-based recommendations that comfort me.

Thursday Movie Picks: Addiction

One week I have almost no movies to recommend, the other week I have too many to shuffle through. Addiction being the topic with a wider range, not only is addiction related to drugs but also alcohol, sex, pain killers as well as food and shopping etc. I feel like there are so many movies to choose from. But at the end of the day, I figured there are three very heavy movies of addiction that I would recommend.

Thursday Movie Picks: Non-English Language Movies – Middle Eastern Language Movies

I mentioned this the last time a Non-English category was featured in the Thursday Movie Picks (during my first week of participation), I’m not good at watching Non-English movies. And when I saw this topic, I was a bit nervous at first, but after I realized I’ve seen two that I loved, I knew I could do it, by recommending just two.

Thursday Movie Picks: Science Fiction Horror

halloween-edition

Most definitely the hardest topic this month is the combination of sci-fi and horror. The thing is, I like science-fiction, I think it’s one of my favorite genres because most of my favorite movies are categorized as sci-fi these days. But, as most of you probably know already, horror is not my thing, so the combination of these two was a challenge. All my picks ended up being average , can’t recall much about them, movies.
