2017 Thursday Movie Picks Schedule

Hey! So I finally have the 2017 themes ready! Any questions, please leave a comment.

This year I have a new TMP special edition - A TMP Television Edition. I think the past year I've seen more TV series than movies and I thought wouldn't it be great to have a TV edition. I contemplated doing a standalone spinoff series, but was unsure if I could commit to another day of blog post or if anyone was interested in participating in the series as well, so I'm just putting it together with TMP and they will run on the last Thursday of each month. You can pick TV series or mini-series, just NOT TV movies.

I'm revising some of my rules too. I know we all love to share more of our picks, so I suggest 3-5 picks. Anymore than that it just becomes a long list. You can also pick them for whatever reasons you like. I know most usually go for favourites, but I've seen some creative picks in the last two years which is always fun. So simply pick 3 to 5 titles and tell us why you picked them. The last rule of sharing your link in the inlinkz widget and linking back to my blog on your own blog post still stands of course.

Lastly, I've opened up seven dates for suggestions on next year's schedule. If you're interested, you can submit a maximum of two suggestions in the comment section below. I'll choose 7 out of all the suggestions I've received. If you've made a suggestion in previous years which I have not used, you may resubmit again for next year's consideration. All I ask is that if you do decide to submit a topic please ensure that you will participate for the Thursday it's allocated. Here are the open dates available:

  1. A lot of really fun themes to try and find films to match up with!

    Just one question. The July 20th theme "The Chose One" I not quite clear on the intent of that one.

    1. A movie where someone is destined to be some sort of leader/hero often foretold by a prophecy like Buffy or Anakin.

    2. Ahhh...a typo...I just saw it.

  2. I've made a small edit for the March 9 and November 9 theme.

  3. I love that you added TV picks.

    For Halloween, has "creepy children" been a pick? There's so many of those. lol

    1. We had one Villainous Children in 2015, so that's pretty similar. I think I'll wait another year, if we're still doing this, before repeating themes.

  4. Body horror films, the likes of Cronenberg, Cabin fever, Bug etc. That could be a good potential theme for October. Don't think it's been a theme before.

  5. Oh how wonderful that you included television picks, that is absolutely wonderful!! And looking at the topics, it's definitely a great list and I'm excited to be apart of 2017 from start to finish!

    My recommendations:

    Movies You Love to Hate
    Blockbusters (during the Summer maybe?)

  6. Okay, I can offer suggestions, but I think I may have a few too many. Still, I've got a few military-themed categories I can suggest which could follow your World War I/World War II themes...
    -American Civil War
    -Cold War (non-Vietnam)
    -Movies about the British Empire
    -Revolution! (your choice of which revolution)
    -Modern Warfare
    -Future Warfare

    -Navy SEALs
    -United States Marine Corps
    -In the Navy
    -Air Force
    -Black Ops
    -The Resistance
    -Korean War
    -The Middle Ages
    -The Renaissance

  7. I love that you added television picks. Can't wait for 2017 to start!

  8. Has Silent movies been done before?

  9. What about Cults? Has that been a theme before? or Animated films geared towards adults?

    1. We had a Cults/Secret Societies theme just last September.

  10. How about strong women, not nasty or crazy but just strong women? For the Halloween edition, one could have psychopathic women. Since Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher passed away within a day, what about pick 3 movies from actors/actresses who died in 2016.
