This week's Thursday Movie Picks is A Disappearance

Today's a mix bag of a newer watch and two old favorites.

White Bird in a Blizzard (2014)
The disappearance of her mother hangs over a teenage girl's life until she confronts the suspicious events surrounding it. This is one of my newer watch. It's a little weird and trippy, but interesting.

In My Father's Den (2004)
A man returns to his hometown after his father's death and befriends his ex-girlfriend's teenage daughter. When the girl disappears, he becomes a suspect. An old favourite that I have often picked and it's here again. It's such a good movie, but I think it's become quite a forgotten little gem.
 
Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975)
A few girls and a teacher disappear after a picnic at Hanging Rock. Guess what? This is being readapted into a mini series with Natalie Dormer as the headmistress. So this is probably a good time to check out the excellent 1975 movie or read the book. Then afterwards read the theories about the mystery or if you can get that secret chapter that was published separately posthumously...which I have yet to read but wonder if they'll include in the new adaptation

This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Rivalry

---


Relying on some old previous picks that make perfect rivalry movies.

The Prestige (2006)
Two rival magicians continually try to put up the better show and sabotage each other. I think this is going to be a popular pick today, it is certainly one of my favorite movies.

Death Becomes Her (1992)
Two women try to outdo each other in love and beauty. Haven't seen this in ages, but remember it to be very funny.
 
Mean Girls (2004) 
Two girls sabotage each other as they vie for queen bee status. I think it's one of the best teen comedies.

My picks today are from least to most liked.

The Fast and the Furious (2001)
The movie that inspired today's theme. I actually saw this in the theaters way back in 2001 and it's so not my type of movie, which is why I think I've only watched one of it's sequel. But apparently the movies get better and the franchise is still going strong.

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
Again so not my type of movie. Don't care for the plot, I mean it's so thin anyway right, but great action and just a visual spectacle.

Drive (2011)
The only one out the three that I actually love. The Driver, yep the protagonist is an unnamed driver, is just so confident in his driving and everything else that he does.
