There are many movies with the theme of running away.. either running away from the bad guys or the good guys. There are many movies that come to mind but I have three that I want to mention because those were the first that came to mind. Plus one that I’ve already mentioned and will mention again, as a bonus.
Here we go again, my favourite week of Thursday Movie Picks, the Television Edition week which gives me an opportunity to put to use my extensive knowledge of TV shows. This week’s theme though is a difficult one, because again, there is always the chance to list all well known shows *cough* Marvel *cough* but where’s the fun in doing that!? Here are four less known television shows that feature various characters with awesome super powers.
Honestly, I had to use the Internet for this one because while there are of course the obvious adaptations, I didn’t want to pick between them and instead, picked between the not so obvious ones that might appeal to the younger generation (as it did when I was a teenager). So with a little help from my all knowing friend, I tracked down three picks that are not so much Shakespeare but a little outside the box. PS: Yes, I have seen Romeo + Juliet, but I didn’t really care for it… even though Leo looked amazing in it – sorry!
This week’s theme is definitely a gem among the rest because I knew at least one movie I definitely wanted to recommend, and the others didn’t take long to follow. I wanted the list to be a mix of both, I wanted to have a genius and a prodigy, but then I figured I’d mention one of my favourites from last year as well that sort of falls into the genius theme. So here’s my very versatile list of really intelligent people.
Ask me to recommend movies about musicians, easy. Ask me to recommend movies about writers, even simpler. Ask me to recommend movies about actors, I could do that. Ask me to list movies about dancers, I could do that in my sleep as well! Ask me to share movies about painters, and will sit in silence and contemplate on how limited my choices are. Granted, I know quite a few movies about painters, yet I have not seen those movies – and hence this vague list of movies about painters.
Few times, last year, I recommended TV shows as part of my Thursday Movie Picks because I thought why not and now Wandering Through the Shelves has decided to add it as part of the series! So every last Thursday of the month, everyone participating will recommend television shows according to the theme. It is a wonderful addition, and honestly, I’m a little scared because I have definitely seen a lot of shows! A lot! And considering science fiction is one of my favourite genres, just so you know, this list feels very important to me. But, I also wanted to recommend shows that not everyone has heard of, so…
This is a bitter sweet theme for this Thursday and part of me was really hesitant about choosing movies for this one. Mostly because there are so many, since 2016 was a devastating year for the movie world from start to finish. And yes, loss is bitter, but the legacy that was left behind is a sweet reminder that they will never be forgotten.
Yaaas! This is my kind of topic, you guys, and it didn’t take me long to find recommendations for this one. I sat down, saw the topic, and was like, alright, here are three movies every fashion lover should watch, like, right now!
Welcome back to Thursday Movie Picks where in 2017 I will try to participate every Thursday! Head over to Wandering Through the Shelves to see the upcoming themes this year, including Television Picks which I’m super excited about! In the mean time, here’s to the first Thursday of 2017!
My Thursday Movie Picks journey started this year on August 25th, and it has been a great challenge in so many ways! So I will continue with Thursday Movie Picks in 2017, the amazing list of topics including TV recommendations! is already up, and I’m super excited to join Wandering Through the Shelves for a year-long-journey! But before 2017, there is a few more recommendations left for 2016.
