Thursday Movie Picks: The Chosen One

For this week’s theme I wanted to focus on movies that are filled with magic and have a fantasy element, which wasn’t hard, since the chosen one is like the most common character arc for that genre. That being said, picking between all these movies and sort of choosing the ones most closest to my heart, was still a difficult task. Here are four movies I recommend.

Glow (Season 1)

Netflix has become like that family member who keeps showing up at family gatherings and taking the spotlight from everyone else because it’s Netflix, and that’s what Netflix does. In other words, Netflix has come out with another original show, shocker, right? And while I still haven’t finished watching 13 Reasons Why, I’ve now watched through all 10 episodes of Glow.

So yes, I think his style is still on point in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, despite the movie lacking instant appeal and uniqueness. And while I will always have nostalgic appreciation towards Ritchie, for me, this mythical block buster felt flat and empty, even though it tried hard to hit all the right marks.

Thursday Movie Picks: Amusement Parks

Last week was all about summer vacation movies which I cleverly avoided because I needed two of those movies into this list! Turns out I know how to plan ahead, who knew!? Anyway, here are three amusement park related recommendations, and even though two of them are really obvious, I feel like I cheated a little with the third one – but I don’t really care!
