Thursday Movie Picks Seven Deadly Sins Edition: Pride

Thursday Movie Picks

This is the seventh deadly sin which unfortunately brings this special edition Thursday Movie Picks theme to an end. Last but not least we have pride. For me pride is the hardest to pin point because it’s not necessarily a bad word. While others have more negative connections to the word, pride can be a positive thing. Though partnered with sin I guess pride can also be super bad. Anyway, I’m taking a strange route and delivering three movies where…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: TV Series Based on Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

This week’s theme was a bit of a challenge for me. Television Edition weeks usually aren’t but there aren’t that many shows based on movies. If there are, I haven’t seen most of them, so there’s inevitably not a lot to choose from. I did go with movies I’ve seen and in one case, I’ve also seen the show. I think I’ve seen parts of one show but I can’t remember.…

Thursday Movie Picks: Secret Doorways / Worlds

Thursday Movie Picks

There is a sense of whimsy about this week’s theme and I love it! Secret doorways and worlds are mostly fantasy related to me and I adore fantasy! True, the book genre is more successful compared to the movie genre but that’s okay. For this week I’ve found three recommendations about secret doorways and/or worlds that I consider mediocre. It’s not that they are bad, they just… haven’t been made with care. Ironically, all three have a 5.8 or 5.9…

Thursday Movie Picks: Male Buddy Movies

Thursday Movie Picks

This week we are looking more closely to the movies that could be categorised as male buddy movies. Now, I would be lying if I’d say I wasn’t stuck with this theme. Initially I thought male buddy movies are comedies (which I don’t like) or adventure/teen movies (which I haven’t seen many). So to find a common theme and keep with the male buddy theme became a true challenge this week. But I did it (with a twist) and here…

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…
