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.…

My Favourite Elite Characters

Top 5

In a surprising turn of events, I’m listing my top 5 favourite characters from the Netflix show Elite. It’s surprising because I didn’t think I’d end up liking this show this much after the first season. Then, even though the second season had some problems, I finished Elite on a high. There’s one particular reason I’m now completely hooked on this show but it’s sort of a spoiler (I’m sorry). Oh, and Elite is in Spanish, so you know it’s…

Thursday Movie Picks Halloween Edition: Period Drama Horror

Thursday Movie Picks

This the season to be scary! Which is ironic since Halloween edition scares me a lot. Being quite new to the horror genre I’m sure I’ll start repeating myself with these movies. It’s inevitable, honestly. But this week, since horror is paired with period dramas, I’m pushed into a very tiny corner. So, I’m improvising. I’m bringing you three movies that have horror elements but are not all horror movies per-say. Also one is technically not even a period drama.…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Fantasy

Thursday Movie Picks

Fantasy! I love fantasy in book form and I’m quite fond of it on television too. So this week’s list is a joy to compile, even though it’s tricky to differentiate fantasy from sci-fi these days. There is a lot of overlap between the fantasy and science-fiction, and sometimes, I can’t even tell the difference. But, for the purpose of this post, I will keep it in a form of creatures! Fantastic creatures such as dragons, sirens, ghosts etc. I…

Let’s Talk A Bit About the 2019 Emmys

Extra

Well, well, well. It was an important day for television yesterday, when the Emmy awards were given out to the best of the best. I did not watch the Emmy award show itself but I did read through the list of winners, and spent way too long staring at those daring red carpet looks. So I figured I’d talk a little about it and share some of my thoughts about this year’s Emmy awards.…

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…

Thursday Movie Picks: Non-English Language Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

Every year I fear this theme because I’m bad with foreign movies. When I see this theme looming, I think to myself, I’ll watch some non-English language movies and get an excellent recommendation list together. Well, this is not the case this time around and I have to list a non-English movie that I was not a fan of. Then again, the other two picks I list here are actually quite good. That being said, the pick I’m not a…

My TV Alphabet

Blogathon Extra Tv-show

Years and years ago I compiled an alphabet of my favourite movies, actors and directors. Every letter corresponded with something or someone I liked, loved, admired. Today I’m sitting down to do the same thing… but with television shows. This is an undertaking of the year for me and I’m quite excited. One of the reasons I wanted to do this is because TV shows have risen to great heights. They are complex, well made, demand a lot of our…

Thursday Movie Picks: Hostage

Thursday Movie Picks

While I probably know many movies with hostage situations, I’m struggling a bit with these very specific themes this year. On one hand, there are so many, on the other, they sort of limit my recommendations to a very specific corner. The themes have taken me hostage, and I’m not liking it. That being said, here are three recommendations revolving around hostage situations that have another common thread. Can you guess what else besides the main theme connects them? I…
