Thursday Movie Picks 2017: From January to December


Well well well, I fucking did it! I’m sorry for cursing but I’m so damn proud of myself that I kept at it for an entire year! I decided to participate in Thursday Movie Picks in 2016 but I picked it up at the end of August so that year technically didn’t count. This year though, I was successful (with one minor mishap of publishing on a Friday instead), and I figured, before I publish my last Thursday Movie Picks of 2017 tomorrow, that I’ll create a list of all my picks from this year. Oh and yes, I will continue picking movies every Thursday in 2018 as well!

    Congrats! Great job getting it done every week! I missed it a few more times this year than in previous years, but I am also coming back for another run at it.

    Congrats. I’m going to participate with next year though I don’t think I can do all of it. I did pretty good for this year’s movie picks.

      Yay!! Well, it’s a great way to get your brain working each week but you can schedule ahead as well so it would be easier to keep up all the time.

    Great job! I managed to do all the weeks except the foreign TV week of which I know bupkis.

    It’s a challenge to get something together every week but fun as well. I’ve discovered so many films to give a try through the series and hope I’ve been able to inspire viewing of some of the ones I’ve used…unless it was something I was warning against and then I hope I spared someone the misery I went through when I watched them!

      Oh well next year we will again have the foreign TV week which is when I’ll be screwed because I haven’t seen anything really!

      It is fun and it is a challenge, but I hope you participate next year as well! 🙂
