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.
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!
Behold, another theme I don’t feel very comfortable with because I had to Google my way to my last recommendation. The reason being, I didn’t really realise that it was based on toys, but I’m glad I did some research because it made my list so much better.
Now, with this week’s topic I was a bit conflicted with myself, because comfort can be a very wide term. I could go with the cliché route and pick all romantic comedies because those comfort me when I’m blue. 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.
Here is a theme I have not been familiar with… ever. Like, western and me know about each other, but we don’t hang out because let me be honest, I don’t really like this genre. There are a few movies I’ll mention here that are obviously western and that I’ve actually enjoyed. But as a general rule, I don’t seek out westerns in my spare time.
Another week, another great topic because there are a lot of big, well known movies, that are actually based on TV series! Two of these I was aware of, the third one I accidentally stumbled on, when I was fact checking as I usually do. I was like, really?, based on a TV series, cool, going on the list because that movie is a good one. Check out my list to find out which movie I’m talking about.
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.
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.
Here we go, finally a topic that feels like I’ve been familiar with since I can remember. But that’s because there are so many outbreak movies out there, so many zombie-apocalypses t entertain our thirst. Here are my three picks for this week’s topic.
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.
