I almost forgot todays post so this one is going to be a quick one. Luckily I thought about this theme last weekend and figured out two of my picks real quick. The third one was rather easy too because for one very memorable performance. But I especially love the actresses playing themselves part I picked here. Anyway I’m sure there are more roles where actors and actresses play themselves but these were the ones that popped into my mind first.
Music has never been in a more important place in my life than these past months. So I tried to do this theme justice this week and I went with songs that I think EVERYONE knows and has heard at least once. If not.. you must have been living under a rock for sure. But let’s dive right into my three picks that all won the Best Original Song Oscar. They are also from the last decade AND they are all sung by women (sorta).
A time ago reading was everything I thought about so I read quite a lot of books. Haven’t been reading a lot lately so this theme makes me a little sad. Maybe I’ll pick up a book after this, who knows?! Anyway here are three books that I’ve read in recent years that I think would make great TV series. If done right of course! So three books I want to be adapted into a TV series.
With themes like treasure hunt it’s hard to approach it differently. I’m guessing I’ll have a lot of matches this week because honestly I couldn’t think of a way to think outside the box for this. Even finding a theme within a theme seemed too much for me this week. That being said, I gave it a go and here’s what I ended up with.
This week’s theme is quite subjective so I’ll be surprised if there’ll be any matches. But then again, I’ve matched with weirder themes so I can’t state this with complete confidence. That being said this week’s theme took me a while to pin down because confusion can be approached differently. But movies don’t necessarily confuse me in a good way. Being confused is essentially about having a negative feeling about the movie. So is this week just my excuse to throw hate on some movies? Definitely! So don’t expect anything good from these “recommendations”. It’s basically a huge STAY AWAY post.
Say that title three times fast, huh? Anyway… we are back again with the Oscar winners edition and this one is a hard theme for me. I will try giving my best at finding the ones that stand out the most for me. I’ll focus on the costume design category as I’ve focused on a single category throughout these editions. Again it’s sort of a theme within a theme as well because that’s what I do!
It feels like yesterday I sat down to write a Thursday Movie Picks post and here we are again. This week though we are looking at television shows and recommending ones that fall under the book adaptations theme. Honestly, it’s a bit of a difficult one for me because I’d gladly recommend ones I’ve read the book for. But I haven’t read any books that have been adapted to shows lately or.. not a lot at all. But let’s try to find a different theme within a theme, okay? Maybe even a bit more since all the book adaptations I picked here became miniseries in 2020. PS: Don’t forget to look at my worst book to movie adaptations post.
Of course I’m in the middle of my summer break when this theme comes up! What a perfect coincidence. Anyway I have not much to tell… here are my three movies that feature a summer break. They are not the best but they shall do because I honestly don’t have a lot of good movies left at this point. Oh and yes, they all fit into a specific genre because of course.
We are back again with the non-English language movies which is a yearly theme. I started to participate in TMP and I struggled with this theme. I’ve gotten so much better over the years though. I’ve watched more non-English movies and shows these past few years and it’s actually easier to pick. That being said, my movie watching has taken a huge dive into almost nothing this past year so I simply don’t have a lot to choose from in the first place. Regardless I tried my best and thanks to my local film festival I actually managed to see a few non-English movies.
This week’s theme is a little ironic. They just announced the olympics will be held without an audience due to this THING wrecking the world. Shame really but also understandable. Yet I shall try not to make this into something it’s not supposed to be. I mean I’m supposed to talk about female athletes… in movies. But because I’m a sucker for a theme within a theme I’m going with the documentary route today. All these documentaries are from 2020.
