No you are not losing your mind, it really isn’t Thursday.. I’m just very late. This week was weird and I just didn’t have the time to write up the post. Worst book to movie adaptations have been on my mind all week though so I figured I’ll post a bit later. It’s the first time I’m so late to post my Thursday Movie Picks but I didn’t want to make it my first ever skip in years either. Anyway, here are my picks for worst book to movie adaptations. And as always, I’ve added my little twist and made it a theme within a theme.
Can’t believe it’s already June!? I feel like I haven’t accomplished anything this year and most of it is already over. Anyway, at least I have been keeping up with my Thursday posts which are back with the Oscar Winners Edition special. This week we are looking into Best Original Screenplay and Best Adapted Screenplays. Now you know me, I like to pick a theme within the theme, so I right away wanted to pick one of them as the main focus. Also it’s getting a little late here so I won’t be saying much about the movies this week.
Bringing you some globetrotting television shows this week. The idea is that the show is scripted, so non-reality, non-travel and non-docu series. Limiting it to scripted did out a wall up for me but I think we got there in the end. Also, how is it at the end of May already? Gosh. It feels like just yesterday it was April and now we’re almost in June. I wanna say time flies but at the same time I have done nothing so… it feels more like it’s passing by and I’m just unaware of it. Anyway, on to my globetrotting picks.
Another month and another Oscar edition is coming your way. This week I wanted to pick movies and Best Director winners that I like. But also I wanted wins that have a bigger importance so these are all historic moments. Two of them happened just recently and one sparked an interesting streak of wins. Anyway let’s get started.
It feels like the only way I can tell the difference between weeks is thanks to Thursday Movie Picks. Days fall into one and the stress of the entire year and a month on top is truly getting to me now. Work is not easy at the moment either which is just an added stress on top. BUT that is not what we are talking about today, we are talking about psychological Thrillers! I for one am not the biggest fan of these movies but when one clicks I love it a lot. Psychological thriller isn’t just something I look out for on purpose though. Anyway, I thought of this theme and I figured I’d pick three movies without even looking at Google for help. So if they don’t really fit the theme… blame the stress. I’m sure it’s at fault somehow.
This week has brought me back so many wonderful memories. You see, I used to do these Intro posts where I just put images from the opening title sequence into a post. I did shows as well as movies but like many of my features I didn’t do that long. Though putting together this week’s post did make me smile in the best way possible so who knows, maybe I’ll bring that opening title sequence feature back (but don’t expect anything). Here are three opening title sequences of TV shows that I still remember for their visual appeal and song selection.
This week I struggled. Not because there wasn’t enough to recommend but because there was so much. I thought about so many different angles but eventually I settled on the most obvious one: conmen. This is a genre of movies that I tend to enjoy more than not. And if you add a fake identity to the mix it’s even better! Oh and in case you were wondering, this list has a few fake identity related spoilers.
We are back again with another Thursday Movie Picks Romance Tropes Edition. This week we are looking at forbidden love and let me tell you, I was stumped at first. There seems to be a lot of movies that fit this theme but I could not figure out the main focus. Forbidden love for me can be either just toxic or down right illegal. Or simply forbidden due to circumstances. I have chosen a theme within a theme that I feel like works the best here.
Did I forget? Yes. Did I still have 50 minutes of Thursday left to pen and post this? Yes. So here we go. If it feels like I’m not making sense it’s because I rushed through this like crazy. I need to start scheduling these things. Anyway we have friends to lovers trope for this weeks romance theme. Friends to lovers is not as tasty as enemies to lovers but it’s still sweet. Though again, I like the contrast more than I like the sweet progression from friends to lovers but why am I spending so much time on this when I only have 48 minutes of Thursday left. Here we go.
This is my month! Not just in terms of it being all about romance for Thursday Movie Picks but it’s my BIRTHDAY MONTH! This year, after the hell 2020 was, I’ve decided to sort of celebrate throughout the month. Just have fun with it. I have a vacation coming up and I just hope to fully book my days with stuff I love. But I digress, we’re here for romance tropes and fake relationships! For those who do not yet know I love a fake relationship trope to hell and back. It’s fun, it’s weird and it just brings me joy. The trope itself is more common in books I feel like so picking three movies was harder but not impossible. No theme within a theme (unless you count underrated movies a theme) because there’s not a lot of fake relationship movies out there and that’s a shame.
