The Miniaturist is a mini series adaptation of a novel by Jessie Burton. It narrates the story of a woman who becomes the wife of a prominent merchant, only to be engulfed in the household's secrets when she begins to receive miniature items that is telling of her situation. The whole adaptation runs for 2.5 hours, and while a lengthly runtime it would best to watch the whole series in one sitting due to the division of parts. I haven't read the source novel, but for what it was, I thought that it was well done. (note: spoilers)

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. Head over to her site and join in! This week is about Oscar nominated works that should have won. For this I am going to assume that this covers Best Picture, Best Foreign Language Feature, and Best Animated Feature. This is going to be a tough one since I haven't watched all nominated films for a specific year, so my choices will be narrowed down to Best Picture winner that I have seen, and what I think should have won in its place. Honestly, my main reason for why the movies should have won is because I thought it was better than the winner. Here are my picks this week.
