Thursday Movie Picks #53: Television Edition: Scores and Theme Songs (WEIRDEST)

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: Scores and Theme Songs (WEIRDEST)!

So, this week's theme is once again about TV theme songs and scores.  Because this blog is dedicated to everything weird, I went with the three weirdest sounding theme songs that I have ever heard!







Now, this theme song might not sound too weird for most people, as this show is about babies, so of course you're going to have a baby sounding theme song to this series.  But, the xylophones accompanying this theme song gave this theme song an odd yet unique sounding edge! 








Not only did this have one of the weirdest intros in children's television, but it has a nice spacey feel to the theme music that really made this theme song seem out of this world!




3. Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends






As it's a show about imaginary friends, of course it would have a weird sounding theme song.  This theme song seems to have a 1920s aesthetic to it as you can hear the kazoo playing in the background!






And don't forget!!  The Weirdest Movies Blogathon will be running from April 23rd - May 20th!  So please sign up today!

Weirdest Movie Blogathon - My List!

 


Hey everyone!  I just recently created a new blogathon called "Weirdest Movies Blogathon" where you get to list the weirdest movies you have ever seen!  If you want to know the rules of this blogathon, then click HERE.


So, here's my 5 weirdest movies that I have ever seen (so far):


1)  Beetlejuice ~  MY REVIEW



I always loved this movie and this is seriously one of the weirdest horror comedies that I have ever seen!  Giant sandworms, travelling between the world of the living and dead?  Being possessed to dance to the "Banana Boat Song?"  All of that weirdness in this movie!


2)  James and the Giant Peach ~ MY REVIEW



The fact that this movie is about a young boy going on an adventure with giant bugs and travels on a giant peach makes this one of the oddest fantasy films that I have ever seen!


3. Mirrormask ~ MY REVIEW



Another bizarre fantasy film that has some of the strangest creatures that I have ever seen on film, especially those sphinx cats!


4. Sorry to Bother You



This is probably one of my most favorite movies in recent years that's actually weird!  So many weird moments throughout this film such as flying office appliances, a girlfriend whose ear rings constantly change and a shocking and weird twist in the plot!


5.  Monkeybone ~ MY REVIEW



Not my favorite movie, but you have to admit that the visuals in this movie are downright bizarre and awesome to look at!

Thursday Movie Picks #52: Psychological Thrillers

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: Psychological Thrillers!


If there's a set of films that I always enjoyed, it's psychological thrillers!  I always loved watching movies where we get inside the characters' heads and see how certain events affect them emotionally and physically.  So, I picked out three psychological thrillers that have a horror edge to them for this week's theme!








A young couple trying for a baby move into a fancy apartment surrounded by peculiar neighbors.

I remembered watching this movie years ago and I was actually shocked at the psychological angle this movie had with the protagonist trying to figure out if her neighbors are apart of a satan worshipping who want to take her baby away from her.  It's definitely an intense psychological thriller with a horror edge!







Carrie White, a shy, friendless teenage girl who is sheltered by her domineering, religious mother, unleashes her telekinetic powers after being humiliated by her classmates at her senior prom.

This is yet another horror movie with a psychological angle.  Even though  most people remembered this movie for Carrie's rampage during her prom night, the movie dealt with issues like bullying and how that can have an emotional scar on the victim.




3. The Shining



A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where a sinister presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from both past and future.
Probably my all-time favorite horror movie that has psychological themes.  The fact that this film hinges on whether or not the things that Jack sees are in his head or the effects of the ghosts in the hotel is what made this movie so creepy to watch!
