I can't believe it is already July! Before you know it, Christmas is just around the corner! Am I too advanced? Lol! I am just looking forward to our movie meme making it until the end of the year. Will it ever reach that period? I hope so...
So what's in store for the Couchers for the month of July? More TCP themes of course! Below is our TCP Themes explained:
July 6th: Angels
Movies that show about angels: how they touched human hearts, or how they have fallen or movies showing depicting miracles. There are a number of these movies that have made it to the box office and are really inspirational.
July 13th: The Best Chick Flicks
Sometimes also called gal films, these mostly include formulated romantic comedies, (with mis-matched lovers or female relationships), tearjerkers and gal-pal films, movies about family crises and emotional carthasis, some traditional 'weepies' and fantasy-action adventures, sometimes with foul-mouthed and empowered females, and female bonding situations involving families, mothers, daughters, children, women, and women's issues. These films are often told from the female point of view, and star a female protagonist or heroine.
July 20th: Road Films
Movies that have an episodic journey on the open road (or undiscovered trail), to search for escape or to engage in a quest for some kind of goal -- either a distinct destination, or the attainment of love, freedom, mobility, redemption, the finding or rediscovering of oneself, or coming-of-age (psychologically or spiritually).
July 27th: Slightly Epic, Slightly Historic
Epics include costume dramas, historical dramas, war films, medieval romps, or 'period pictures' that often cover a large expanse of time set against a vast, panoramic backdrop. Epics often share elements of the elaborate adventure films genre. They take a historical or imagined event, mythic, legendary, or heroic figure, and add an extravagant setting and lavish costumes, accompanied by grandeur and spectacle, dramatic scope, high production values, and a sweeping musical score. They are also often a more spectacular, lavish version of a biopic film. Some 'sword and sandal' films (Biblical epics or films occurring during antiquity) qualify as a sub-genre.
Hope to see you all next month for Tuesday Couch Potatoes!
