Thursday Movie Picks: 2018 Movies You're Looking Forward To

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. For entries of other participants and themes for the year, head over to her site. This week is about movies we're anticipating for next year. I researched a bit on this as there's a lot. Here are my picks for the week.

Black Swan

One of the things that I am guilty about when it comes to keeping my blog is how unpolished my work is. I have a tendency to type and publish without proofreading. This leads me to see my errors after my post is up, and while I am now aware that I need to polish my work, I am not good at it. While my blog isn’t my whole life, I though I would mention this in comparison to Nina Sayers’ need to be perfect. She has devoted herself to her dance, wanting to emulate the principal dancer of the company, a woman she thought to be perfect. She has this desire to be perfect in her craft, and I feel like the opposite of her. This incessant need of hers has brought out pressures that she is impervious to, and this is what Black Swan is about. Classified as a psychological horror, this is about a dancer who was cast in the lead role of their production of Swan Lake, and her destruction to fulfill her role.

Justice League

Justice League is DC’s foray into introducing new but familiar characters, and an entry way to the solo movies these characters have lined up. Taking place after the events of Batman v Superman, Batman recruits people with special abilities to take on a threat that can destroy the world. While far from being a flawless flick, Justice League does enough to quench the thirst for the new characters, but not enough to be a solid blockbuster that it should be.

Thursday Movie Picks: Small Towns

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. For the entries of other participants and themes for the year, visit her site! This week is about movies set in small towns. I'm not sure if the town has to be existing or fictional, but here are my picks for this week.

Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express chronicled one of Hercule Poirot's adventures. Poirot is a detective and is a main character in one of Agatha Christie's series. This has a man getting murdered while on a train heading to London, and Poirot was tasked to uncover whom among the passengers is the culprit. Directed by Kenneth Branagh, this brings another feature retelling to the big screen.

Thursday Movie Picks: Ugly Duckling to Beautiful Swan Makeover

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. For the entries of other participants and themes for the year, head over to her site. This week's theme is ugly duckling to beautiful swan makeovers. I usually find most of this in teen movies, and my picks for the week are no exception. Here are my picks for the week.

Wind River

When Cory Lambert, a hunter goes out to look for a pack of lions tormenting the herd of a local, he stumbled across a body of a young woman he was familiar with. The location of her death caused the sheriff to place a call to the FBI, thus launching Lambert's involvement in the investigation of her death. This was a feature film of Taylor Sheridan, the writer behind Sicario and Hell and High Water, and being a fan of Sicario, I had to watch the film at some point. *spoilers ahead*
