Thursday Movie Picks Seven Deadly Sins Edition: Wrath

Thursday Movie Picks

We are almost at the end of our Seven Deadly Sins edition and it’s time for wrath! I thought long and hard what to include and then I saw this: in its purest form, wrath presents with injury, violence, and hate that may provoke feuds that can go on for centuries. So I’m recommending three movies that revolve around racism. A form of unwarranted wrath embedded so deep into society that people are filled with hate for no reason. All…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Book to TV Adaptations

Thursday Movie Picks

It’s that time of the month again where instead of movies I recommend TV shows. It’s always exciting but this month I get to talk about book to TV adaptations! Now, since I haven’t done this type of recommendation list before, I figured I could make this week even more special. So, instead of recommending adaptations that exist, I’m listing shows that are coming out in the (hopefully) near future. Since this pandemic is still affecting our lives and everything…

Thursday Movie Picks: Period Dramas

Thursday Movie Picks

There is a sense of deja vu with this theme because just recently, in October, we had theme for period drama horrors. For that I picked three Mia Wasikowska’s movies. Now it’s period dramas again and I’m feeling like I have run out of Wasikowska movies so… you’re getting a random selection today. Well, almost random – all these period dramas are directed by women.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Prequels

Thursday Movie Picks

Part of me feels very uninspired by this week’s theme because I’m not much for sequels nor prequels. They tend to be made for money purposes only these days. At least that’s how I see it. But that in mind, I do think there are a few decent prequels out there so I’ve listed three here. One is a bit weaker than the others but still better than most prequels I know of. No theme within a theme this week…

Thursday Movie Picks Seven Deadly Sins Edition: Sloth

Thursday Movie Picks

We are closing in on the last seventh deadly sin and this week we are looking more closely at sloth. This feels too close to home because I’ve been feeling like a sloth these past few months. Not really exiting the house, staying in and feeling like doing nothing even while maintaining a full time job. Anyway, I tried to go with another theme within a theme for this one and ended up with four picks instead of three. That…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Competitive Reality Shows

Thursday Movie Picks

This week I felt like not aiming for a theme within a theme because all three of these are completely different. These are the three competitive reality shows I’ve watched more than a season worth, followed almost religiously at some point and all that I’ve lost interest in at the moment. So, I guess I do have a theme within a theme for this week. Anyway, these competitive reality shows are not even in the same ball park. They are…

Thursday Movie Picks: Great Final Films of Actors/Actresses

Thursday Movie Picks

This was a very difficult theme for me. Especially since I have not seen many classics and I think these would yield the most possible great final films for actors and actresses. Still, there have been, and sadly there will always be “final films” for talented actors and actresses. I figure I should watch The Crow (as I think I would like it) but for now, it couldn’t have been mentioned. Also, just to clarify, when movies are released posthumously,…

Thursday Movie Picks: Girls’ Trip

Thursday Movie Picks

The fact that we can’t go on a girls’ trip right at this very moment is sad… That feeling of being cooped up and not having the option to go anywhere without feeling anxious is constant – it’s pretty fucked up. So much so that instead of good movies this week, I’m recommending you bad ones. Cause honestly, I could not think about the good girls’ trip movies at this moment. It would be too sad. Common for all these,…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Game Shows

Thursday Movie Picks

So let’s see. Game shows are television programs were people go and win money. There are many that have been adapted to various languages and I can name like a few that are still sort of going on in Estonia. But that’s the most I know about these because I rarely watch these types of shows. I can think of a few game shows that I’ve seen over the years, one that I really liked and there’s surprisingly a theme…
