Thursday Movie Picks: Movies With Strong Female Character(s)

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. For entries of other participants, visit her site for the link up. This week focuses on strong female characters. I think the word 'strong' could mean many things - physical strength, women standing up for themselves, women with personality, and so on. Here are my picks this week:

Thursday Movie Picks: An Adaptation You Want to See

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. Check out the entries of other participants through the link up in her site. This week's theme is an adaptation of anything that you want to see. All my picks are books that I want to see get adapted. Here are my picks for the week:

Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok is the third installment in the Thor franchise, and has a much different tone from its predecessors. The movie has Thor facing the biggest battle known in Norse mythology – Ragnarok, the end of the world. In this case, Ragnarok meant the end of Asgard, the place getting engulfed in flames. This isn’t a spoiler; the events of Ragnarok have been explained in the opening credits. In this installment, Thor faces Hela, Goddess of Death. The viewers find out what happened to Hulk, and more of Norse mythology comes to play in the form of Valkyrie. Ragnarok is an entertaining installment in the Marvel universe, but it doesn’t really have much working for it. *spoilers ahead*

Rough Night

Rough Night deals with a group of friends having a supposedly fun bachelorette weekend, only to find themselves in trouble when they accidentally kill a guy. It is headlined by a bunch of comedic stars and some well known names to give it star power. By the way the trailer looked, it should have been a lot of fun with hijinks, but the movie either missed its mark or didn't know where to position itself - or possibly both.
