What I’ve Been (Binge-)Watching #26

I have watched so many things that this post is probably going to get a little longer than I initially planned, but there’s just so much to talk about! Let’s get started to not add to the word count by some rambling in the intro!

Another Life

I had this saved to my Netflix list for months now, but never quite felt in the right mood to watch it. However, I generally like alien and outer space stories, so I am honestly not surprised I ended up enjoying this one as well. Even though I found some visuals to be very obvious aftereffects, the show has a cool and believable feel to it, making you wonder how far it is in the future and thinking it’s not quite all that much. Maybe, as if we were only one scientific breakthrough away from getting to that point as well.

Anyway, do not watch this show for Tyler Hoechlin, you’d be disappointed! Definitely watch it for the AI William though!!! He was the kindest soul and my absolute favourite from episode 1 onwards. I’d love to talk some more about the aliens and whether they are a threat or not and if humanity is being a dick once again, but then it would take out all the fun of you watching it. If you ever do want to talk about that stuff though, just hit me up in the comments!

For fans of: people crammed together on small living spaces, precarious situations that escalate past what you think possible, aliens, outer space, human challenges

Ares

I only found this trailer to make it accessible to all of you, but this is originally a Dutch show and I highly recommend you watch it in Dutch with subtitles. As you all know by now, I quite enjoy my international (especially European) Netflix shows and just upon hearing the title of this one, I was intrigued.

It’s another quite short format, but it is VERY dark. I mean that and want to warn you that someone stabs their own eyes and slits their throat within the first three minutes and many more brutal suicides will follow throughout the course of the show. I understand that it is not for everyone and want you to be prepared for the violence. Having said that, the show had amazing layers to its story, showing how karma can build up through generations and metaphorically portraying the consequences to actions in a very interesting way. You never quite know what’s behind it all and what’s going on, but it was very interesting nonetheless. The end, while making sense in a way, was super abrupt though and that irritated me a little. 

For fans of: metaphors, lore, karma, ambition, how far would you go-scenarios

October Faction

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, Netflix is on fire with their comic book/graphic novel adaptations! While I haven’t read this personally and therefore can’t compare the content to its origin, I had the best time watching it. I will admit that it’s not the best comic book series on the platform, but it has its own charm for sure. While the premise seems pretty straight forward, I promise there are twists and turns to the story and characters that will make it ten times as intriguing as the trailer alone might suggest.

I don’t have all too much to say, other than that it was a quick and interesting watch that leaves you wanting more easily. There is a sort of cliffhanger and it definitely feels like not all loose ends are tied up just yet. I assume they made this with several seasons in mind and I can only hope that they’ll be able to get to do far more.

For fans of: comic book adaptations, humans vs. monsters, who is the real monster though?

Sex Education (Season 2)

Pretty sure it’s no secret that I liked the first season of Sex Education quite a bit and I liked this one too. There are still brilliantly shot scenes, good acting, confusing fashion choices that never quite make sense in terms of which decade we are in and lovable characters all around. I think I cried a whole lot more this time around than I did with the first season, but it also felt a little less focused? I don’t really have anything bad to say though (except maybe not loving the definition of pansexuality they used), because I don’t know … the show is pretty awesome.

The storylines that especially touched me were Aimee’s, Adam’s and Jackson’s, but Maeve also had some tearjerkers. But not just the main characters, but also some one episode sidestories were pretty great, with the “asexuality” scene probably being one that I can see helping many people out there. I know a lot of people weren’t too happy with some of the new additions *cough* Isaac *cough*, but just keep in mind that there would barely be any conflict without some new drama. They need material for hopefully a couple more seasons after all!

For fans of: messy teens, all kinds of love

Titans (Season 2)

I wasn’t 100% sure I was going to include this one here as well, because I am not even sure I ever talked about the first season, but here we are! The thing that is on my mind the most is that … I just don’t really love this show but also keep watching it? I just find it very hard to root for some characters, because you never quite get as close to anyone as you would need to be fully invested. The story is all over the place, there’s far too many flashback episodes (which are just a personal nuisance to me) and they keep adding characters.

An ensemble cast isn’t something bad, but if you see a character for a minute per episode or not at all, can you really still call them part of the main team? I don’t know. It’s such a slow build here, but as I said, I still keep watching it. There must be something to it! (Definitely didn’t mind the addition of Superboy and Krypto but will forever be sad about Aqualad’s part in all of this, especially cause I loved the casting)

For fans of: DC comics, origin stories, Titans

Knives Out

I wasn’t exactly impressed with the Oscar nominations, but that’s a whole other topic. Still, I try to catch at least some of the nominations every year and I really, really, really wanted to watch Knives Out. It released in cinemas here pretty late, so there’s still 5 screenings per day now and I finally caught one. I now get what all the fuss is about!

Murder mysteries not being my favourite genre, this was actually A LOT of fun to watch, as in, I laughed out loud several times. I don’t think we even have to talk about how brilliant of a cast they managed to get, but I was really impressed by all of them. Ana carried the movie perfectly and it was great getting to see Chris Evans in something other than America’s golden boy. I even thought I had been spoiled about the ending, but I wasn’t entirely and still loved all the twists and turns. Many people have mentioned it to me before I went and watched it, but the final shot of the movie is perfection!

For fans of: murder mysteries a la Agatha Christie, any and all of the amazing cast members, Rian Johnson as director


Have you watched any of these things? Do you want to? Let’s chat!

What I’ve Been (Binge-)Watching #24

This will likely be one of the last “normal” posts of the year! Tomorrow there’s the usual trailer post and then come Monday I am going to go WILD with multiple ranking posts almost every day of the week. It’s going to be interesting to see if I can really follow through on it, but I did tweet about it already and am saying it here as well, just to hold myself accountable. Anyway, I watched a lot of stuff and it was as follows:

Marvel’s Runaways (Season 3)

I am really sad this was the last season of the Runaways, but they really did try to give it their all. In some ways that worked better than in others, but I am glad they tried to fit the content of about three seasons into those final ten episodes. Maybe some more time would have helped with certain storylines, but I particularly lived for the cameo of Cloak & Dagger! I love Tandy and Tyrone and they fit in with the other kiddos so well, I basically just wanted them to stay.

While I understand Marvel’s need to start fresh and cancel everything that they didn’t start themselves as canon-part of the greater MCU, I am disappointed they weren’t willing to work with anything pre-existing at all. I understand that there are complex character-specific contracts and that they couldn’t just continue with the Netflix shows (as there are clauses about waiting periods until they can use characters again), but Runaways was produced by hulu which is owned by Disney as well, so I don’t see the issue here …

Lastly, something happened at the end of ep. 9 of the season and I would have never in a million years forgiven them, if they had ended it on that note. They remedied it though, so for that alone, I am already so very grateful. At least I got that!

For fans of: evil parents, teen superheroes, messy relationships, found family, cool cameos

Soundtrack (Season 1)

This show was a bit of a surprise hit for me. Usually, I am not too fond of musical content, but none of the people actually sing on the show, they just use music and lip-syncing to dramatise scenes. Well, that’s not entirely true, since some of the characters are in the music industry, but overall it isn’t really a musical, but rather the OG song of Imagine Dragons starts playing and someone just mouths to it.

While the show looks more on the light side, it had surprising depth to it. As much as I could see this as a standalone season, over the course of the episodes, you really connect with the characters and want to know more about them. Without giving anything away, I love that it has a “This Is Us”-kind of approach to the timeline and really neatly works with those different layers.

For fans of: music, fresh faces, family-centered struggles

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

I feel like, in order to properly review this movie, I would have to go in depth and therefore spoil some of the things that happen in the movie, but I don’t want to do that. So, I am going to try and be very vague. IF you still haven’t watched this and want to go in completely blind, then by all means, feel free to skip everything about this movie and just continue reading about the next show. Overall, I can tell you that I was disappointed with the movie. While I did chuckle and felt entertained during the run time of the film, the movie just didn’t make sense within the universe and was a huge disservice to so many characters. Here it goes:

  • Redemption through death is one of the laziest tropes ever. It’s rarely ever satisfying, it’s an easy cop-out to not do the work and let the character actually show that they are better and I am still mad it was used in this movie.
  • Rose, as a character, was completely sidelined, which made it feel like the writers gave in to the hate and cowardice of the fanboys who harassed Kelly Marie Tran, to the point where she had to leave social media. She had 73 seconds of screentime. Let that sink in.
  • They initially made it seem like this trilogy was about how ANYONE could use the force, not necessarily people of a specific heritage. Also, they negated the statement that everyone has a certain light and darkness in them, by basically saying that a specific character only had “dark” thoughts due to their heritage. Another easy out if you ask me to blame her doubts on her DNA.
  • Finn and Poe had great chemistry, we all saw that! But, to say it in the kind words that Oscar Isaac used, the Disney overlords were too cowardly to do anything with it. Instead they insert a new female character, who’s face you literally never see, just to make sure no one is getting ideas about Poe being anything but straight.
  • Speaking of Finn, his character was also done dirty. I am glad he is force sensitive, but the boy didn’t even get to say whatever he wanted to tell Rey in a precarious situation. Guess we’ll never find out now.
  • They did things with the force that were never done or mentioned before. They weren’t just inconsistent with it in terms of other movies, but within the movie itself it didn’t always work the same way. It’s almost as if it just does whatever they want it to for the convenience of their writing.

Seriously, my highlight of the movie was a little droid who had some unknown past trauma and respectfully rolled away saying “no, thank you” whenever someone tried to touch him. Even more so enjoyed how the good guys all respected that and didn’t force themselves on it. That was my favourite part.

The Witcher (Season 1)

I have neither read the books nor played the games that this show is based on, but I really enjoyed it nonetheless. I want to warn anyone who isn’t sure about watching it that it heavily features nudity (especially of women) and violence, to the point where I sometimes skipped scenes, but it doesn’t deter me from still recommending it as a watch.

It’s definitely a show where you have to pay attention and I would recommend watching it within a short period of time, just because the timelines and story is more complex than it might seem and it took most people (me included) until at least episode 4 for all pieces to really fall into place. I like the world-building a lot though and am glad it already got renewed for another season which will air in 2021. It has a couple minor flaws (some *romantic* relationships were too intense too fast for me, like dude, no way could you fall in love with someone that quickly), but the performances all around were magnificent. The fight choreographies were beautiful, the characters layered and three dimensional and even the animals (shout out to Roach) were cool. I especially liked the dynamic between Geralt and Jaskier, because I love a good we-are-friends-but-I-will-never-admit-that-out-loud-relationship. Also, Henry Cavill gave so much depth to a single “fuck”, I am in awe!

For fans of: Fantasy settings, magical creatures, complex timelines and world-building, Henry Cavill in a weave

Lost in Space (Season 2)

I really liked the last season of Lost in Space (you can read more about it here) and I was really happy to have enjoyed this one as well. First of all, JJ Feild was a great addition to the cast. It’s really never a mistake to have that man on board, please, cast him in more stuff. Second, Don is still one of my most favourite characters. I think the writers picked up on the fact that people didn’t love the underlying romantic tones they gave him with Judy (since she is what? 19?), so there was a lot less of that happening. However, I loved his scenes with Penny. Legit some of the favourite of the season for me. And third, the Robinsons remain a beautiful complex mess of a family and I am here for it.

The season felt different than the last one and I would have preferred some more intimate conversations between a couple characters, but I really liked where we went overall again. Just like last season, it ended on a huge cliffhanger though, so I am just praying we get more episodes. 

For fans of: space adventures, hero-villain-friendships, family dynamics

YOU (Season 2)

I know this show is crazy. I honestly don’t understand how people are swooning over Joe as a character, because it’s a big NO from me. If we are talking about Penn’s performance as Joe though, that’s a whole other story. He very openly advocates for people to look at Joe critically and to not see the show as a “how far are we willing to go for love?”-thing, but rather as a “how far are we willing to go to forgive an evil white man?”, which I applaud him for. And those are legit his words, I did not phrase it like that myself in case some people feel attacked in their white male privileged ego.

I wasn’t sure if a second season with more or less a similar premise would work, but I was positively surprised by how smoothly they made that transition without getting repetitive at all. I would LOVE to talk about so many things but so many of them are spoilers. Let’s just say that I liked how they managed for the viewers to root for Joe to take down another bad guy (like, if someone has to do the dirty work, might as well let it be the “villain”), but I was a bit disappointed with the pay-off from some scenarios. It felt like really good writing that didn’t end up where you sometimes wanted it to. Definitely could see another season in the future and would 100% watch it.

Finally, I did love how ambiguous the whole “did he finally find his match?” tagline for the season was and how I guessed it right though.

Did you watch some of the things as well? Are we on the same wavelength concerning opinions? Let’s chat!

What I’ve Been (Binge-)Watching #21

As quickly as I devoured Dear Evan Hansen, I returned to mostly watching TV shows just as fast. I am sure another book will come along and grab my attention, but first, here are the things I’ve been watching lately!

Raising Dion

This show was super cute but also emotional in many ways. I like the way they went about this, as it didn’t feel like your typical superhero origin story and showed how difficult it is if you have a young kid with powers. I also loved how this wasn’t just about his powers, but also very much about family. The twists at the end of the season just were the cherry on top.

I’d 100% watch another season! The only thing I’d have to criticize is that the kid who played Dion was super cute to watch, but definitely struggled with imagining what his powers ultimately did. I, in absolutely no way, want to imply that it’s easy to act (especially at that age) with something invisible, but sometimes the movements and animation were just majorly … off? They could have at least tried to match him more, even if it would have been more erratic, in post-production.

For fans of: original superhero tales, kid-focused stories with adult themes, representation

Baby (Season 2)

If I could have a Netflix crossover with Elite, I would want that show to be Baby. In my head it’s definitely the same kind of format, just switching the murder mystery with underage girls acting as hookers (and it’s obviously Italian and not Spanish – but they did a Youtube video together and it was hilarious). I am pretty sure this isn’t a show everyone can see themselves in, but it still has a binge-worthy quality to it. You just need to give it an episode or two.

I honestly couldn’t tell you too much about the first season anymore at this point, but to me, the second season felt a lot more focused and compact. Maybe these characters are growing and learning to some extent, but it sure doesn’t feel like for most of them. There’s honestly some truly disturbing individuals here and especially the homophobic bullying that’s going on is hard to stomach. Beware of that!

For fans of: female empowerment through sex, high school drama multiplied

The Man in the High Castle (Season 1)

Not sure how many of you remember this from my time in Vancouver, but I was actually on set of this show once or twice. It hit me quite hard seeing swastikas on people in real life and I felt very down after that set visit. It’s not that I thought it was a bad show, but I didn’t want to feel sad all the time, so I didn’t really feel like watching it back then.

Now the show is coming to an end and I am into it all deep. I am a couple episodes into season 2 already, but like the slow build up and the mystery of it all. I don’t want to spoiler anything, but I just want to say that my love Frank Frink deserves so much better than Juliana and I will stand by that!

For fans of: alternate history shows, sci-fi twists

The Hook Up Plan/Plan Coeur (Season 2)

If you ever need a silly show that probably focuses on the importance of romance in ones life a little bit too much, but you don’t really want to think about it and just watch something fun – this show is perfect! Last season sort of ended on a cliffhanger, but I believe that season 2 ended perfectly. I don’t say this very often, but I hope it’s not getting another season. I wouldn’t know what they would want to tell us, because everything important has happened or has been resolved and another season would just mean unnecessary drama.

For fans of: silly over the top romance, crazy but strong friendships

Charmed (Season 1-2)

I already talked about my issues with the reboot of Charmed in my monthly wrap-up. However, I am absolutely and positively obsessed with this show! The second season got an overhaul with new showrunners and a much more edgy and cinematic look. I was worried when I first heard they wanted to focus more on the supernatural aspect and less on the family, but two episodes into the new season and it looks like whatever they changed was the best decision they could have made!

They stepped away from trying to reinvent the OG Charmed and now really make it feel like they are doing their own spin on things. In a way, and I am not going to spoil what happens, it’s a reboot within the reboot and I am 100% here for it. Also, my ship is thriving and that’s really all a girl like myself could ask for (aside from a job at the show, but let’s not get greedy).

For fans of: witches!!!

I did the total fangirl thing and ignored all my responsibilities to do a video edit of my ship. Please ignore my lack of storyline or editing skills and enjoy my random acts of trying to be creative for no good reason:

What I’ve Been Binge-Watching #10

I feel like I have been very busy with work but also social activities in my free time lately, so I have no clue when I watched all of these shows, but they were enough to warrant another What I’ve Been Binge-Watching post … so, yeah, here you go!

Schitt’s Creek (Season 5)

I have talked about this show in detail, so if you want to check that out, you can click here. But honestly, I didn’t think Schitt’s Creek could get any better, but it still amazes me with every season. I am not someone who can easily stick with sitcoms, but this one just works on so many levels for so many generations. It’s not for nothing that I actually own a pillow with the magnificent pansexual icon we all need but don’t deserve that is David Rose on it.

I am willing to go so far as to say that this might have been my favourite David season so far. But the entire family just keeps on growing and making me love them so much, I ended up crying a couple times. This is their penultimate season, they did get renewed for season 6 but said on their own accord that it would be the finale. It both pains me and makes me so very proud that they get to end the story on their own terms. It’s what they worked for and I love them so much for everything they have given us.

Seriously, if you haven’t ever watched the show, you are missing out!

Osmosis

I love highlighting Netflix’ international content, because they are opening doors for so many people with these productions. Osmosis is a really interesting scifi story, even if it isn’t entirely revolutionary. It feels like it’s a French version of a very long Black Mirror episode and how technology always has its advantages and downfalls. For me personally, it could have focused on the romance a whole lot more. I quite liked some of the base concepts of the show, but ultimately it didn’t completely capture me the way I had hoped it would, meaning there was a problem with the execution in the end.

My overall opinion on it is that it was a nice distraction with potential for more, should Netflix be willing to throw more money at them, but it’s not something I would bet on.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Part 2)

I was very hesitant on whether I should continue with this show or not. I hope by now you all know that I am NOT a fan of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and please don’t try to convert me. The first season or part or whatever they want to call it was ridiculous in my eyes. I did not like 80% of the characters (Prudence, Ambrose and Nick being their only saving grace) and as soon as we got to cannibalism, I was out. However, the promise of a dark Sabrina intrigued me (obviously, I didn’t get her) and I continued watching.

In the end, I liked this season better than the first one. I imagine it has a lot to do with the fact that the humans were in it less. The way they are always so righteous just makes annoyed at them and I say that not agreeing with that depiction of the Church of Night and some moral stuff (again, what is with the cannibalism?) happening at all. Anyway, my point here is that I liked it a little better, but I am still not fully on board. At least they cooled down on the blurry edges, which is also a good thing.

They already got renewed for Part 3 and 4 anyway, so what does it matter if my viewing numbers play into the equation?

*remains thoroughly Team Nick if there have to be teams*

Turn Up Charlie

Idris Elba, who is a DJ in real life, playing a struggling DJ in a fun TV show is my jam. Also, I haven’t seen Piper Perabo and JJ Feild in what feels like forever, so I enjoyed this massively. It was super British, light, fun and way too short. I don’t know what all to say, except that this had so much more heart than I expected it and really played on the notions of what makes a family and friendships work. It gets a big thumbs up from me and I truly hope we get to see a little more in the near future!

What I’ve Been Binge-Watching #3

It’s been one of those weekends again, where I just couldn’t resist a good old binge of TV shows. There were some new releases on Netflix, but I’ve also finally started something I’ve been eyeing for a long time now. Here’s what I got for you this time:

Sex Education

Not gonna lie, I thought this was gonna be garbage, but the show had something really endearing about it. Obviously, if you aren’t comfortable with the topic of sex or just don’t care about it, maybe the show isn’t entirely for you, but there’s so much more to it. Although it might look like it’s set in the 80s, it very much plays in our world today, in some part of the UK that I could not specify if you begged me to.

I feel like this show is so relatable for so many questioning teens out there. It isn’t really so much about regular high school drama, but the discovery of yourself as a person and your boundaries, the things you are capable of and your limits. Pair all of this with some really great acting, great humour and a more than solid plot and you do have my attention. At this point, I would be delighted for another season!

Friends from College (Season 2)

Friends from College is one of those truly underrated shows on Netflix. It has a star-studded cast, is absolutely hilarious and tackles some really great topics. I might be drawn to this more now that I am in my mid-twenties and adulthood is inevitable, but I genuinely enjoy every single episode of this show and Season 2 was a real blast.

The characters and their relationships are so complex and while their decisions are often faulty and misguided, you do understand where they come from. There’s hours upon hours of material up for discussion after watching this but I just need everyone to back off of Lisa. The woman is no saint, but Ethan’s transgressions were like a 100 times worse and I stand by that.

Halt and Catch Fire (Season 1)

Okay, I haven’t actually finished the first season yet, but I am officially in love with this show! I’ve known of its existence for a while now, but Karen Gillan’s The Party’s Just Beginning made me yearn for some more Lee Pace stuff I hadn’t watched before, and that’s when I finally started it. Best. decision. ever!

Halt and Catch fire is an incredibly intelligent drama about what seems to be the 80s computing industry, but is really only the backdrop to showcase some intriguing and real characters (real even has a double meaning here, because it’s supposedly largely based on true events). They have their faults, dang they are all introduced in a less than flattering way, but you want to know more about them. It’s a truly character-driven show. I can’t wait to watch all the rest!

Have you watched any of those? What are your thoughts on them? (For those of you surprised that Titans wasn’t in the post, it will probably be featured in the next one) Let’s chat!

What I’ve Been Binge-Watching! #2

I like this little feature, because it briefly lets me tell you what I’ve been obsessing over. And since I don’t think anyone really minded me doing this the last time, here we go again! (If you’ve missed the previous installment of this rather new feature, click here to check it out!)

You

You is based on a book, that is ready to be read on my Kindle, but I made the executive decision to watch the show before diving into the written format. Not gonna lie, I am glad I watched it while I was at my parent’s place in Vienna and not all alone by myself in Berlin. As someone who has had bad experiences with strangers following me or calling me and knowing my address, that show creeped the hell out of me.

Joe is like the perfect guy on paper. What he shows the world is seriously what I would consider a dream partner – interested in books, kind, supportive, etc. but … this show is literally his inner monologue and it’s just terrifying. I definitely would not wish a stalker like that on anyone. Yet, at the same time, it was really fascinating to watch.

There was definitely a lot that I would say was predictable, but the story also took some really nice turns and the ending was brilliant and, at least to me, unexpected!

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

Technically, Bandersnatch is an event movie, but it belongs to the Black Mirror series, so I am counting it in! Do you remember those “choose your own adventure”-books? I always used to love them as a kid and, well, Bandersnatch is a choose-your-own-adventure-film. It takes you down so many different roads, you almost feel like you are in inception. It gets super weird, which is very typical Black Mirror manner, and you don’t always get presented with options you even want to take, but the concept is still brilliant and makes something rather passive as watching a show super engaging.

I am far from having taken every possible option and I am not sure I ever will, but I seriously hope that Netflix will venture out to do more content like this. Not only does it protect them from piracy, but it’s also really, really fun.

Alexa & Katie (Season 2)

Alexa & Katie is one of those super light, yet with a touch of emotional seriousness shows that is perfect for binge-watching. You don’t need to pay super close attention, it’s fun but not the best thing ever. I have to say that I enjoyed Season 1 a little more than Season 2 and I was a little disappointed that the whole Katie-Lucas-thing was barely even addressed at all, but it was still nice.

Sometimes you just want a little bit of pure friendship on your screen and if you don’t mind the Disney/Nickelodeon type of storytelling, then this is probably for you!

Marvel’s Runaways (Season 2)

I am so, so, so happy they released the entire season at once and didn’t do it on a weekly basis again. Runaways is one of my absolute favourite Marvel shows and Season 2 has only strengthened that opinion. As I will be mostly talking about S2 today, you can check out my more detailed post on the show in general here.

As many of you know, Gert was my favourite character on the show so far and, again, I remain by that statement. I especially appreciated her mental health rep with a focus on anxiety this season. Her character is definitely not flawless and makes many a mistake, but somehow I just always connect with her the most and it was a pure joy watching her grow in these new episodes. Obviously, she wasn’t the only one going through some changes and I am just so elated that the show managed to give everyone new struggles, new challenges to face and just so much growth in general.

I think Runaways has the potential to really keep going for a lot of seasons and I hope people watch the show and make it happen! (as we all ignore how terrible Old Lace looks)

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Aug 1-7)

trailers

I don’t know if it’s summer laziness from me or the uploaders of trailers, but here is my meager bounty for Trailer Sunday:

Movies

Storks

IT JUST GETS BETTER EVERY TIME! The glass thing always cracks me up.

Two Lovers and a Bear

Tatiana and Dane – I like them both but together … it’s an odd image. Just like the movie as a whole I guess. It’s one of those films where you have to be in the right mood.

I.T.

So, apparently this has Taylor Swift’s brother in it … he’s supposedly around the 1:30 mark. That family wants to take over all of showbiz.

XOXO

I imagine this movie to be a bit of a sensory overflow, but it seems cool nonetheless.

Embers

Seems interesting, but I would probably watch that at home someday rather than in a movie theater.

TV Shows

Poldark (Season 2)

I LOVE THIS SHOW! If you didn’t know that, you clearly missed my post about it last year. My obsession was reignited because Cátia binged the first season before the start of the new one and now I cannot wait.

Our Girl (Season 2)

I was all in with this show last year as well. It’s one of the rare occasions where I reviewed every single episode. I usually only do that for Doctor Who. I even have all the scripts from season 1 somewhere on my computer, but when I found out that they changed main character because of scheduling issues with the actress, I wasn’t sure I wanted to watch it again. BUT I JUST SAW BEN ALDRIDGE AND LUKE PASQUALINO! COUNT ME IN!!!

Is there anything on there you would watch? Tell me all about it in the comments!
