With the Oscars coming up this weekend, it’s a fitting theme for this week’s Thursday Movie Picks, hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. I don’t forcefully watch a lot of Oscar movies; instead I tend to stumble upon them and discover they were nominated or they won for their year. I don’t like the pressure of having to see said film because it’s award-winning. So I try to watch most nominees before the actual nomination itself. This week's theme doesn't only limit to best picture winners, but from the pool of animation and foreign film winners as well. Here are my picks this week:
It’s two days before Valentines Day, so if you’re planning to have any plans at all that involves going outside, you better get to it! Unfortunately for this week’s theme of Thursday Movie Picks (hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves), none of these characters get a happy ending with their chosen loved ones, as these feelings are either ignored, not reciprocated, or rejected. The only words I can tell them are ‘move on, and you’ll find someone out there’. It’s generic advice, but given the right time, I think anybody could find love. Here are my picks this week:
Love is in the air in this week’s Thursday Movie Picks hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. There’s a year worth’s themes ready and it’s never too late to join in the fun!

Wendell of Dell on Movies is hosting a blogathon! As the title suggests, we are to explain why a remake is better than the original. I had a hard time choosing on what movies to write on: either I’ve seen only the remake/original and haven’t bothered watching the original/remake, or I prefer the original movie. So for this blogathon, I decided to go with The Parent Trap (1998), and how it was a better movie than The Parent Trap (1961). Note: my defense has spoilers, just in case you haven't seen any of the movies.
