This week's Thursday Movie Picks is The Chosen One 

---



Ahh...the chosen one...so many to pick.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)
It has such a low rating on IMDB, but I remember liking it, this was of course way before the series was ever made, so there was nothing to compare to...and it had Luke Perry...in the 90s, he was the IT guy because of 90210. I would love to see this again.

Star Wars 1-3 (1999-2005)
I know people hate the prequels, but I like them...anyway they were all about Anakin Skywalker, the one prophesied to bring balance to the Force. For some reason no one seem to realise that as the good guys were winning, "the one" will be a bad guy to balance it all out. Oh and I just love the simplicity of that poster.

The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising (2007) and Seventh Son (2014)
I only found out about the seventh son of a seventh son folklore because of the movies that were made about it and it's an interesting lore, but too bad the movies using that basic premise have all been really bad. The Seeker was trying so hard to be the next YA franchise but it was boring and Seventh Son was just this bad bad medieval fantasy movie.

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Amusement Parks

---


Summer is supposedly the month for amusement parks, hence the theme for today. Mine is a theme within a theme...it's all the "lands"

Adventureland (2009)
Set in the 80s, a recent college graduate takes up a job at a local amusement park. I remember this the least, as I saw this the earliest out of my picks today, but I do remember liking it.

Zombieland (2009)
If you haven't seen this, it's basically a zombie road trip comedy and in the later half of the movie (not a spoiler) the characters go to an amusement park. Recommended.

Tomorrowland (2015)
It's a pity that Tomorrowland is actually boring because there were bits of it that look pretty awesome but nothing comes together and everything just seem a little pointless. The gist; a young boy genius enters some science/inventor contest at an amusement park and gets to glimpse into some futuristic magical world. However, for reasons I can't recall, he grows up a sort of recluse and pessimistic about the future. That is of course until he meets a teen girl who has a passion for science and together they...I don't know what they actually achieve in the end...renew the world's faith in science?

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Summer Vacation

---


Summer isn't really my season...and I've been drawing a blank on summer themed movies so here goes.

Very Good Girls (2013)
One of my more recent watches. It's a pretty unmemorable movie about two girls spending their last summer before going off to college.

Hearts in Atlantis (2001)
I guess the movie one thinks of when you think of summer and Stephen King...is probably Stand By Me, but I'm not as fond of it as most...so I'm going to go with Hearts in Atlantis which I like more. The gist: a boy and his friends befriend a new tenant who has supernatural powers.

The Go-Between (1971)
Ok...I like this one. Set in 1900, a boy spends his summer vacation at a school friend's grand home and becomes a go-between carrying messages for his friend's older sister and her secret lover.
