Truth and Justice (2019)

Foreign Movie

It’s been almost a week since I saw one of the most anticipated Estonian films of the decade – Truth and Justice by Tanel Toom. A film that tells a harrowing story of life, family and honor.

Thursday Movie Picks: Cold War

Thursday Movie Picks

So here’s a funny story. I didn’t plan to do this without the help of an IMDb list, but when I went to scroll through it, I was slapped in the face.

EDITED: This is NOT the correct post for this week’s TMP! Your girl just messed up the weeks, but enjoy this NEXT week’s theme while this week’s theme will be posted next week. This week’s theme is like scrolling through Twitter and stumbling on a pervy tweet. Meaning: there’s a lot to choose from! And honestly, I had a hard time narrowing down a theme with this one. Luckily, I’ve trained myself well. This week’s TV shows based on books…

So now you’ll get a special post on Saturday, but today is Thursday time. And on Thursdays, we recommend movies, and since it’s Valentine’s Day – it’s also romance time!

Tidelands (Season 1)

Tv-show

There are some shows you watch just for the fun of it. Shows that you put on and leave on just because it has a some what nice view going on. It’s like background noise, which you can’t focus on too much. Otherwise all its flaws will surface and you’ll be annoyed with it. Tidelands is one of those shows.…
