2018 Thursday Movie Picks Schedule (Preliminary)

Hi everyone! I finally have the 2018 themes. Please note this is not the final schedule as I will be adding suggested themes and may reorganize all the themes.

So anyway, this has been the fifth year I'm doing this. For those that have stuck around: thank you so much and I hope you continue to do so. The TMP Television Edition is a new edition I started in 2017 and it's back for 2018 as they have been so much fun. As before they will be on the last Thursday of each month. You can pick TV series or mini-series, just NOT TV movies.

Lastly, I've opened up NINE dates for suggestions on next year's schedule including one for the Halloween Edition. [Wendell you have already made your suggestions and I have already picked two of them.] Everyone else if you're interested here are the submission criteria:
a) must have participated in a few TMPs and have commented on previous posts.
b) submit two (no more as I'll probably have a hard time choosing) suggestions by posting a comment on this post. Only on this post.

  1. How about for May 10, we do Cannes favorites for films that had played at the Cannes Film Festival as the Festival will commence from May 9-May 20?

  2. How about , in Feb, Oscar films but ones you think should have won. This is a great list and it is making me think

  3. Ooh I was waiting for this and I'm so excited!! I'm definitely in and hoping to make it through the entire year just as I did in 2017 (2 left but who are we kidding, we did it!!)! Woooo!

    My suggestions: Good remakes; Non-linear timeline

    PS: I'm super happy the TV theme is happening again, it's so much fun!

    1. Also, TMP TV theme Non-English repeats from last year?

    2. Yes. I'm making the Non-English theme a permanent yearly fixture for both TMP and the TV edition.

  4. Yay! I'm so excited for this again. I love all the suggestions made in the comments so far.

  5. How about, for the January opening, we choose a film that involves snow in someway. For November 1st, since it is All Saints Day, we choose a movie about a Saint, or day of the dead like in Mexico, or something biblical..I can’t believe I’m suggesting this and am waiting for lightening to strike me down.
