Thursday Movie Pick #18: Doppelgänger

Welcome back to Thursday Movie Picks by Wandering through the Shelves! Last week I was absent, but this week I’m back alive and kickin’. 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.

Our theme for this week is: Doppelgänger. Such a theme, isn’t it? Lucky I’ve found recent films from my repertoire in 2014 to actually eligible to get picked this week. I picked three films about doppelgänger and all of them are mind-blowing at best, cringe-worthy at worst. So, here’s my picks! Continue reading “Thursday Movie Pick #18: Doppelgänger”

Thursday Movie Pick #15: Rivalry

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.

As for this week, our theme is Rivalry, which is kinda easy for me. I know dozens of movies about rivalry, but only given 3-5 movies at max to pick; therefore, I add an additional theme within theme to make it easier (or more challenging). And, the theme within the theme for this week is: Sibling Rivalry. Why? Because I recently watched Ryan Murphy’s latest show, FEUD: Bette and Joan, about rivalry between Oscar-winning actresses, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford; and, that rivalry escalated during the production of a film about sibling rivalry, which kinda adds up to the narrative. Simple, right? So, here’s my pick. Continue reading “Thursday Movie Pick #15: Rivalry”

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.

The theme for this week is: cars or racing. I don’t fancy racing films, though I like films like Rush, Senna or TT3D: Closer to the Edge; but, I have some fascinations with movies about badass guys with great, vintage cars. There’s something about these guys that make us a real powerhouse, especially when they’re in the favorite cars. So, here’s my pick for 3 film about badass cars drivers along with the cars. Continue reading “Thursday Movie Pick #14: Cars/Racing”
