Thursday Movie Pick #11: Ancient World (3600 BC – 500 AD)

Thursday Movie Picks by Wandering through the Shelves returns. According to the theme of the week, three to five movies are picked and shared with the reason. Should anyone be interested in joining in, feel free to visit the main page here.

This week’s theme is: Ancient World – movies set around 3600 BC – 500 AD. Well, I suppose there will be many first-civilization movies around this Thursday. However, I’ve restricting myself to pick only three movies about ancient China. Why China? Because I grew up with wuxia and jiangshi movies, serials and comics. Selecting three movies that are eligible for that ‘period of time’ isn’t an easy task, since there are myriads of movies about ancient China but from different eras (the country itself has a long ‘movie-material’ history).

Thursday Movie Picks by Wandering through the Shelves is here again. I do apologize for skipping the gig for two consecutive weeks. The rules are simple: based on the theme of the week, pick three to five movies and share the reason. Should anyone be interested in joining in, feel free to visit the main page here.

For this week, the theme is: Remake/Sequels/Reboot you want to see, to which I pick sequel. The only reason is: you can always remake/reboot any film you think isn’t as good as it should’ve been (say Fantastic Four or Eragon). However, it takes a real film that awe-struck you to decide to finally see a sequel made out of it. Therefore, I present you some films that I want to see it continued with sequel.

Thursday Movie Picks #2 – Fashion World

Welcome back to Thursday Movie Picks series hosted by Wandering through the Shelves! . The rules are simple: based on the theme of the week, pick three to five movies and share the reason. Should anyone be interested in joining in, feel free to visit the main page here.

This week’s theme is Fashion World. Same as Legal Thrillers last week, this theme isn’t my favorite spot. The reason is similar: too many jargons and names (of people, of brand) I barely knew before. Yet, I can still manage to pick three films about Fashion World (that I watched and found a little liking in them). Continue reading Thursday Movie Picks #2 – Fashion World
