Thursday Movie Picks: Unforgettable Film Scores

Thursday Movie Picks

Film scores have such an important part in creating a mood and elevating the images on screen. Unfortunately I’m a very lousy movie lover when it comes to scores and I definitely don’t pay enough attention. Mostly because I’m more of a visual person than auditory. There are, despite my lack of awareness towards scores, a few that have stood out. These are three film scores that I have listened to from start to finish… more than once.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Favorite Films by Steven Spielberg

Thursday Movie Picks

Well, it’s another Thursday and this time I’m recommending my three favourites from the filmography of Steven Spielberg. To be very honest, I had to look it up because for the life of me, I couldn’t think of any from the top of my head. It might be my brain but it also might be the fact that I love these movies but I never think about them as Steven Spielberg movies. I don’t know why, it just somehow never…

Thursday Movie Picks: Escape

Thursday Movie Picks

Happy New Year! Well, we’ve made it to 2020 guys… congrats to us all! Anyway, we’re starting this year off with a Thursday Movie Picks post. Similar to the past few years, I’m using a new and fresh image for this feature. New year, new me and all that jazz! But enough about my almost non-existent photoshop skills, let’s talk about escape and escaping! Following a self started tradition, I’m also throwing in a theme within a theme.…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Rivalry

Thursday Movie Picks

The moment of accomplishment.. the moment of utter joy is upon me because this is the last Thursday Movie Post of 2019. It’s been an incredible year and well, I’ve made through with flying colours (except that one time I posted on Friday). In all honesty, if it weren’t for this feature I don’t think my blog would have had anything going for it. This was literally the thing that saved my blog in 2019. So I’m very happy to…

Thursday Movie Picks: Child Actors Venturing Out of Typecasting

Thursday Movie Picks

Not going to lie, reading this typecasting theme for the first time gave me hives. It is a brilliant theme, don’t get me wrong, but it also expects some serious thinking. I had to ask Brittani for help because this typecasting thing was for some reason very difficult for me. Even now I’m not sure if I got it right.. it’s such a tricky and frustrating theme because it focuses on careers rather than movies. And frankly, most of the…

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…
