Today we’re going to talk about some movies featuring time loops!

#1 In the Mouth of Madness

The first thing that popped into my head (other than Groundhog Day which I won’t include because I expect everybody else to) was In the Mouth of Madness. It’s been a while since I’ve seen this film but it does feature a loop like that!

#2 Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

I had such high hopes for this movie but was quite disappointed. The books are amazing though and the particular time loop feature in this story fascinated me, so it still deserves a place in the list!

For 2022’s second post we’re gonna look at movies that take place in hospitals. However, my brain drew a complete blank on the topic so I took a peek at the Wikipedia list and came up with three very interesting-looking movies I want to watch now!

#1 Gods

This movie is about the surgeon who performed the first successful heart transplant in Poland. Even though I had never heard of the film the trailer looks fascinating and apparently it won a bunch of awards. Color me intrigued!

#2 The Power

Wikipedia informs me that this is a spooky movie set in the 1970s in the infirmary wing of a hospital. That goes straight on my to-watch list for Halloween.

For 2022’s first post we will take a look back at 2021. However, when I looked up my list of 2021 releases on Letterboxd, I realized that I only watched a grand total of 4 movies that came out last year!
(the one I didn’t include in today’s list was a Christmas film that I already talked about in length just two weeks ago!)

#1 Black Widow

I was so excited when this movie was first announced. And just as sad when it kept getting pushed back again and again. Well, Black Widow finally arrived in theatres and I went to say it on day one!

#2 Red Notice

This star-studded action flick came to Netflix this year. It’s the perfect film if you want to turn off your brain and just relax with some mindless action. Nothing outstanding to report with this picture but it was a good time!

TMP Television Edition: Holiday

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.

It is the last TMP of the month so we focus on TV shows instead of movies. And since it’s still December, this will be holiday-themed. Let’s talk about some of my favorite holiday-themed episodes!

#1 My So Called Life – So Called Angels (S1E15)

I will never forgive them for canceling this show. Honestly, it was the only series about teenagers that ever felt authentic and relatable to me. The Christmas episode was so profound and touching, a real tearjerker without being cheesy or just copy-pasting what you already saw seven million times.

#2 Doctor Who – Twice Upon a Time (13th Christmas Special)

Doctor Who is somewhat famous for its amazing Christmas specials. There are many great ones but I think my favorite is Twice Upon a time. That episode really got me.

It’s getting Christmasy in here! Today we’re going to talk about some holiday party movies.

#1 Love, Actually

Technically, this movie features several holiday parties. It’s such a charming picture filled with a stunning A-list cast. It’s one I rewatch every year as Christmas approaches.

#2 The Family Stone

I have yet to watch this one but I do remember seeing the trailer several times on TV! It seems to match the theme rather well. I mean, coming home to celebrate Christmas (and meet your in-laws) does count as a party, right?

This week we talk about some new to the city stories!

#1 Coyote Ugly

I don’t know what possessed me to do that but I recently rewatched Coyote Ugly. Man, that movie is cringy in so many regards but it is a perfect fit for the theme!

#2 Moulin Rouge

This might not be the first film that comes to mind, but the story begins with Ewan McGregor moving to the artists’ quarter of Paris where he makes some new acquaintances and ends up falling in love!
