Thursday Movie Picks: Television Edition: Foreign Language Series

a weekly series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves

Happy Thanksgiving my American readers! By the way, how is this the last Thursday of the month?! It feels like November just started! I am kind of happy though because I can finally talk about some foreign TV series I love. And since Dell is hosting the Girl Week Blogathon this week and wasn't able to pick series about women, for each show I'm picking my favourite female character. So without further ado, here are some shows you should check out. 

If Anything Happens I Love You (2020)

I was about to watch yet another Brooklyn Nine-Nine episode when Netflix played the trailer to If Anything Happens I Love You. I had never heard of it before so, before venturing into another dreadful film, I googled it. While the score was high — 8/10 on IMDb —, it was the storyline that convinced me I should have given this short animated feature a chance. And I'm glad I did because it's one of the saddest and heartbreaking and yet beautiful and touching shorts I've ever seen. 

Girl Week 2020: Female Villains I Love

From a very young age, I've always been fascinated with villains as I always found them to be the most compelling characters and therefore I almost always rooted for them. There's a problem with villains though, everyone talks about male villains. After all, most movies are made by men for men, hence there's always a male hero and a male villain. Thankfully, some films and TV series revolve around women as well, so for my first entry in Dell's Girl Week 2020 Blogathon I'm able to talk about my favourite female villains, both from the big and the small screen. 

Thursday Movie Picks: Movies about Villains

While at a very early age I always rooted for the hero, as I grew up I became increasingly fascinated by villains, and I've found myself rooting for the bad guy more and more often. It's not a coincidence that American Psycho is one of my favourite films. As you probably imagined, this week I'm going with some villain films I love.
