Thursday Movie Picks #14: TMP Television Edition - Fantasy

Hey! Welcome to Thursday Movie Picks where you get to share your movie picks for each topic presented every Thursday!  Based on the theme presented each week, you can pick up to 3 to 5 movies and explain why you picked those movies! This meme is being hosted by Wandering through the Shelves!

This week's theme is: Television Edition - Fantasy

I just love watching any TV shows that deal with fantasy and there are so many awesome fantasy themed shows on TV!  So, here are some of my favorite fantasy themed TV shows!

When a young boy disappears, his mother, a police chief, and his friends must confront terrifying supernatural forces in order to get him back.

This is seriously one of the best shows on Netflix right now and I just loved all the supernatural and horror elements being put into this show.  I also loved the relationships between the characters!

A young woman, destined to slay vampires, demons and other infernal creatures, deals with her life fighting evil, with the help of her friends.

I used to watch this show all the time when I was in college and it has become one of my all time favorite shows, especially for having a strong female protagonist!

In a war-torn world of elemental magic, a young boy reawakens to undertake a dangerous mystic quest to fulfill his destiny as the Avatar, and bring peace to the world.

This was one of my all-time favorite Nicktoons for the 2000s and it is easily one of the most story driven and intense Nicktoons I have ever seen!

My TV Alphabet!

Hey everyone!! I am participating in this awesome blogathon event which is hosted by Mettel Ray called "TV Alphabet!"  This is my very first blogathon and there are so many great TV shows that I wanted to show my love for in this blogathon!  So, let's begin!


# - 9-1-1 (2018)

I just love this show!  Not only does this show have the most intense scenes imaginable in television with all the accidents that keep on happening in this show.  But it also has some of the best character moments with all the characters!

A - Avatar the Last Airbender (2005 -2008)

I loved watching this show when it first came out!  It was such a well written and exciting animated series that I wouldn't mind rewatching again!

B - Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997 - 2003)

I loved this show!  It had one of the best female protagonists in all of television and it made me fall in love with Joss Whedon's works!

C - CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2000 - 2015)

This was the series that introduced me to the crime procedural type of shows and it was one that I always had fond memories of watching!

D - Daria (1997 - 2001)

This is an oldie, but a goodie!  I just loved all the sarcastic humor in this show and it's one show that I really related to since I felt that sometimes I'm like Daria where I wonder about the crazy things that are going on in the world and I want to snark about it (although I snark about things in my head)!

E - Everybody Loves Raymond (1996 - 2005)

This is probably one of the best sitcoms I had seen from the 1990s!  Even though it's tragic that half of the cast have passed away (especially Doris Roberts), it's still a treat to watch every now and then!

F -  Wild Remote

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1990 - 1996)

This was my all - time favorite sitcom from the 1990s and Will Smith was brilliant as Will in this series and everyone really brought their all in this series (especially the late James Avery as Uncle Phil)!

Friends (1994 - 2004)

This was such an entertaining little sitcom and I just loved all of the characters in this show especially Rachel and Joey!

G - Ghost Whisperer (2005 - 2010)

Jennifer Love Hewitt was brilliant in this show and I used to watch this show all the time when it first came out!

H - Hey Arnold!  (1996 - 2004)

This is my all-time favorite Nicktoon and I remembered growing up with fond memories watching this show! I think it's one of the best animated series that dealt with city life in a realistic yet humorous way.

I - iZombie (2015 - 2019)

This is seriously one of the most unique zombie shows I have ever watched and now I got to go back and watch the rest of this series soon!

J - J.D. : Scrubs (2001 - 2010)

J.D. was such a hilarious character from "Scrubs" and I just loved his daydream sequences as they were the most hilarious parts of the show!

K - Wild Remote

Kim Possible (2002 - 2007)

This was one of my all - time favorite Disney Channel shows growing up and it was nice seeing an action girl in a Disney series!

Keeping up Appearances (1990 - 1995)

This is my all-time favorite British series as the humor is so spot on and I just loved the character of Hyacinth as she was so hilarious!

L - Lucifer (2015)

This was seriously one of the most unique and fun takes on the character of Lucifer Morningstar and I just loved this character as he was so hilarious yet frightening at the same time and he was seriously the most entertaining part of the show!

M - Wild Remote

Maggie Simpson : The Simpsons (1989)

She is seriously one of the cutest animated babies in TV history and even though I haven't seen the recent episodes of "The Simpsons," Maggie is still a memorable character to me!

Max Mayfield: Stranger Things (2016)

I just love Max!  She is one of the toughest characters in the show and I loved her friendship with Eleven in Season 3!

N - Norbert Beaver : The Angry Beavers (1997 - 2001)

Norbert is easily my favorite Angry Beaver as he's the relaxed older brother to Daggett Beaver and his relationship with Daggett is just so hilarious!

O - Once Upon a Time (2011 - 2018)

I remembered being into this show when it first came out, although I haven't seen this show in awhile now.  I need to pick back up on this show!

P - Psych  (2006 - 2014)

This is honestly one of the best mystery comedy shows ever released and I just loved the hilarious antics that Shawn and Gus go on in every episode!

Q - Quick Draw McGraw (1959 - 1962)

This was a tough one since I couldn't think of any TV characters or TV shows that started with the letter "Q."  So, I went with Quick Draw McGraw since I used to watch these cartoons a bit when I was little.

R - Riverdale (2017)

I was a huge fan of the Archie Comics growing up and I was interested in seeing a more serious take on the franchise and so far, this show is pretty interesting!

S - Stranger Things (2016)

Of course, I had to add this show on this list!  This seriously one of the greatest shows I have ever seen coming from this decade and I just love all the characters in this show!  Now, I need to finish watching this show!

T - Teen Wolf (2011)

It's been awhile since I last saw this show, but I remembered loving it when I watched the first two seasons and I can't wait to dive back into this show again!

U - Urkel, Steve : Family Matters (1989 - 1998)

I might have cheated here a bit, but I went with Steve Urkel for the letter "U' since his last name starts with a "U" and I remembered watching this show all the time when I was little and Steve Urkel was always the highlight of this series!

V - Velma : Scooby Doo Franchise

I just loved Velma from the "Scooby Doo" franchise!  She is always the smart girl who solves the mysteries that the gang get into and it's always so interesting seeing her character on screen!

W - Wild Kratts (2011)

So far, this is my favorite animated series airing on PBS kids right now since it teaches kids about animals and what the animals are capable of.  Also, I find Chris and Martin to be pretty entertaining characters!

X - Xena: Warrior Princess (1995 - 2001)

I loved this show growing up and Xena and Gabrielle were such awesome characters!  I need to rewatch this series again!

Y - Young Justice (2011)

I remembered I used to watch this show all the time when it first came out and then I remembered all the fans crying out in anger when the show was cancelled.  I haven't been watching the newer seasons yet since I don't have the new DC streaming service, but it would be great to watch this show again!

Z - Zoo (2015 - 2017)

I am currently watching this show and it's pretty interesting so far. So, I can't wait to see if they can unravel the mysteries of why the animals are attacking the humans!

Introducing the New Horror Movie Corner!

Hello everyone!  I have started a new feature on this blog called "Horror Movie Corner," where I do reviews for, you guessed it, horror movies!  Why horror movies, you ask?  Well, even though this blog is mostly for surreal movies, there are quite a few horror movies out there that also deals with surrealism and I thought that the horror genre fits well with the surreal movies genre!  Also, I wanted to try to talk about other genres on this blog besides surrealism and horror movies are some of my favorite types of movies!  So that means that I will be reviewing all kinds of horror movies and you might see a couple of horror movies on here that will make it on my "Weirdness Approved List!"  I might review a couple of horror comedy films here and there, depending on how much horror is being incorporated into those films.

So, what horror movies have you seen that I should check out?  Please let me know in the comments down below!

Thursday Movie Picks #13: Hostages

Hey! Welcome to Thursday Movie Picks where you get to share your movie picks for each topic presented every Thursday!  Based on the theme presented each week, you can pick up to 3 to 5 movies and explain why you picked those movies! This meme is being hosted by Wandering through the Shelves!

This week's theme is: Hostages!

I had watched a couple of movies that dealt with characters being held as hostages or the plot involves a hostage situation and I wanted to list the movies that I have seen or haven't seen that dealt with hostages!

1. John Q

John Quincy Archibald takes a hospital emergency room hostage when his insurance won't cover his son's heart transplant.

I remembered watching this movie when I was in high school and I remembered being really interested in this movie because Denzel Washington's character was holding the hospital hostage because they wouldn't help his dying son.  Now, I really want to watch this movie again!

2. Speed

A young police officer must prevent a bomb exploding aboard a city bus by keeping its speed above 50 mph.

I remembered how big this movie was when I first saw it and I remembered being a bit pumped for this movie!  Although I haven't seen this movie for years now and I barely remembered what happened in this movie.  This is definitely worth a rewatch!

3. Misery

After a famous author is rescued from a car crash by a fan of his novels, he comes to realize that the care he is receiving is only the beginning of a nightmare of captivity and abuse.

I haven't seen this movie yet, but I've hearing nothing but good things about this movie and it seems like the perfect hostage movie!
