It’s a new year which means a fresh new list of challenges for the Thursday Movie Picks! If you’re not familiar, it’s a simple blogging prompt where you share 3-5 movies (or shows) of your choice. They just have to match up with the theme of the week. If you want to learn more or see what the list for 2020 is, visit Wandering Through The Shelves. This week it’s “Escape.”
1. Iron Man
This movie probably doesn’t jump into your head when you hear the word “Escape” but the entire reason the Iron Man suit was created was to help Tony Stark escape a kidnapping. If he hadn’t built that suit, he’d still be in a cave or most likely, dead.
2. Jurassic World
Again, not a typical escape movie but it doesn’t get much better than trying to get off an island that once again is being overrun with dinosaurs. I could have picked the original but I used that one on a few list last years and want to try and mix it up a little bit.
3. The Fugitive
A more typical escape movie! You’re welcome. Nothing will make you escape and go on the run quicker than being accused of murdering your wife and being put on death row. Sometimes I forgot how much I actually enjoy this movie. It doesn’t reair on TV that often but I might have to revisit it soon.
It’s a short list this week! I just didn’t have the brain power to think of more with the holidays just ending. I haven’t seen a lot of escape type movies either which played a role in a short list. I’m excited to see what films everyone selected for the week!
