Thursday Movie Picks: Deadly Sins Edition: Greed

A weekly series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves

MONEY, MONEY, MONEY sings the ABBA, and I feel like I couldn't pick a better way to introduce April's first theme, greed. Without much further ado — because I'm going to spend the rest of the day trying to find something worth watching on Netflix which is very likely ending up with me rewatching Easy A for the millionth time — I leave you with my picks.

Monthly Recap: March 2020


I miss the good old days when I was making fun of people losing their minds over Coronavirus, and saying that it felt like being in a disaster movie because roads, bards, cinemas, and etcetera were empty. At least they were open at the time. Now it's all closed. We need to sign a paper to go to work — those unfortunate people who still go — or buy food. We can't even go on a walk — which is why I'm seriously losing my mind because I was used to walking 10km daily and now I have to circle around my kitchen isle to reach 10k steps. But at least I live in a big house hence I'm not suffocated by my family 24/7, and I even have a decently equipped home gym. It feels like living in a dystopian film, I kid you not.

2020 Blind Spot Series: The Terminator (1984) & Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)


Something I more or less enjoyed over the years is watching beloved movie franchises — from Rocky to Friday the 13th, I watched all the major ones. As I was writing down my Blind Spot picks for the year I noticed that one was still missing, the Terminator franchise. I decided to go with the first two films only as I was told they were the great ones, the only worth watching. And so did I. And what a dreadful experience it was.

Thursday Movie Picks: Television Edition: Docu Series

A weekly series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves

Thanks to COVID19 I'm catching up with many series these days — I finally finished Orange Is the New Black, watched Russian Doll, and I've picked up again Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and started Money Heist — but given the apocalyptic/sci-fi horror set up my life now has I'm focusing on fictional stuff only. Which is kind of a shame because there are so many documentary series out there people keep talking about in a very good way. Those are the series I'm going to pick for March's final Thursday Movie Picks, documentary series people love that I'm yet to see.
