Thursday Movie Picks: Adaptations

Thursday Movie Picks

Isn’t everything an adaptation these days? I feel like most of what we see is either a remake or an adaptation of a book or a comic book. So it’s not as easy to swim through the amount of adaptations without focus. My focus – adaptations where I have read the book and thought the movie made it work or even elevated it. Oh and also, focusing mostly on the young adult genre adaptations.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Over a Meal

Thursday Movie Picks

This Thursday Movie Picks is special because I’m writing it in an unexpected location – USA! To celebrate my short 5-day trip and the fact that I’m blogging far away from home I wanted to keep this post very American. So this theme actually works out perfectly because what meal is more American than Thanksgiving dinner!? I can’t think of any so here are three recommendations featuring the beloved Thanksgiving dinner.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Politics

Thursday Movie Picks

This weeks’ theme is giving me a small amount of stress because politics is not my thing. I rarely find it interesting because to me it seems like a messy situation run by opinionated people. You could say I’m apolitical, standing in the distance, observing it lightly and definitely not commenting on it. Anyway, this week I’ll try to pick political movies that have all something to do with American politics. Also, I’m a little late with this post (it’s…

Thursday Movie Picks: Scientists

Thursday Movie Picks

We are back to our non-horror related themes and first up it’s scientists! I could think of no better topic for this week because this I can very well connect to sci-fi and well, sci-fi has all kinds of scientists, right!? I mean, I don’t even have to think of a theme within a theme for long because here it is – space scientists. Came up with that in the time it took me to write this intro.…

THURSDAY MOVIE PICKS HALLOWEEN/TELEVISION EDITION: HORROR

Thursday Movie Picks

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Finally, the last Thursday of October is here and I can soon put this months’ horror adventures behind me. Like always, the last Thursday of the month is all about the television shows. The theme is simple, the point is straightforward – we are talking horror. And here are three shows that for me have been horrific but amazing. Oh and since I’ve been lazy lately, this one also has a theme within a theme because why the…

Thursday Movie Picks Halloween Edition: Rituals

Thursday Movie Picks

When I first sat down and saw rituals I thought I was going to grasp for straws here. But as I thought about it a little I realised I have quite a few gems to recommend. All three are decent horror movies but one is especially special among the mediocre. There are good performances, some satanic rituals and well, some pretty gnarly ones too. It’s no wonder rituals are mostly associated with horror movies.…

Thursday Movie Picks Halloween Edition: Jump Scares that Got You

Thursday Movie Picks

Only two weeks to Halloween and I bet many of you are excited. I don’t necessarily get excited about it myself as it is not a trend here in Estonia but jump scares are! Not just in like every day situations but also in horror movies. So I’m looking back at movies I “watched” as a teen and probably got scarred for life because of them. Like, that’s the thing I still dislike about horror movies, those damn jumps. So…

Thursday Movie Picks Halloween Edition: Teen Horror

Thursday Movie Picks

It’s another horror related Thursday Movie Picks and this time it’s all about teens! Now, I think I’m slightly cheating with one of my horror picks as they main characters are more kids than teens but I’m too tired. Plus, I’ve yet again started to write this super late so it’s going to be a short one. Sorry, I just can’t seem to schedule these in advance EVER. Now I’m paying the horrific price. Not even bothering with pictures today.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Break-Ups

Thursday Movie Picks

“Let’s break-up!” “I’m joking, I’m joking, we will live happily ever after.” Does this sound familiar? Well, it should, because it’s pretty much every other rom-com out there with these break-ups in the third act. That is getting a little old. Plus, the reason for the break-ups is almost always something completely insane. And mostly, they disregard general human laws, like communication is never happening in these situations. It’s always like something is overheard, then drama and break-up follow, and…
