November Flicks

It has been so long, since I shared the movies and shows that I have been watching and obsessing over. The thing is, with doing a course, I don’t really have time to watch much of anything. Here are the things that I have been able to watch and I’ll try to do these every few months. I have to remember to write them down. Most of my tv watching is on Netflix, so it has been easier to track what I watch. I am usually watching series, so I only review those when I am done with a season or if the show ends.

The Curse of Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping

This one was really creepy, but in a good way. It wasn’t really scary, but it had it’s moments. I watched this on Netflix and I am glad that I did. All of the pieces fell into place the last 30 minutes of the movie. It is amazing how beautiful true evil can be. This is based off of a Brothers Grim story called the Brier Rose. If you love the Brothers Grim, then you have to watch this movie. I love all of these dark faerie tale movies that Hollywood has been coming out with lately. I give this movie a solid 5 stars.

The Circle

The movie had potential, but was poorly executed. It is advertised as a thriller, but it only has one intense moment in the movie. There were a lot of points were the movie could have been made into more of a thriller with almost getting caught here and someone goes missing there. It had a lot of potential to be a great blockbuster film instead it just fell flat. Also, Emma Watson’s character wasn’t very likable. She lets someone else call her guy friend delusional just because he doesn’t want to be on social media. Just a big flop all around unfortunately. The trailer was WAY better than the movie. 2 out of 5 stars.

Going In Style

A great family comedy, this movie has just the right amount of heartbreak to make this comedy a well rounded film. It had really hilarious moments, but became serious at parts to make you invested in the characters themselves. I love it when a comedy can make me actually care about the characters. The funny thing is, I can see this happening in real life. I highly recommend this film for comedic lovers. It is very family friendly and not very crude at all. It has a Disney Channel ending that I enjoyed. It kept me guessing until the very end. 5 out of 5 stars for sure!

Switched @ Birth

Season 5 was bitter sweet. Season 3 to 4 I felt like they dragged out the show. So much happened in Season 5 and things were just starting to get good again. The last season rekindled the drama on the show, but in a good way. I’m sad that it is over, but happy that I finished another series. I still have to finish quite a few shows that I started in high school. I just don’t want them to end. lol. I feel like the show ended with a lot of closure, even though you don’t know what the rest of their lives will be like, you know that they are on the right path. I hope that Lucas Grabeel works on some new projects, because I love him and I want to see more of him. I try to watch all of the films he is in. Overall, I really did enjoy this series and it ended in a nice way that leaves their lives open ended.

Paddington

movie

This was such a cute movie that I watched on Netflix when D came over to exchange gifts. The movie held my attention and was a very good children’s movie. It did get a bit dark, but I mean, what movie doesn’t nowadays. Dean tolerated the movie very well and didn’t get frightened. He got scared during Zootopia, so for him, this movie was less scary. I need to watch these children movies more often on Netflix, because they are highly entertaining and this one had a very good message. Dean needs to be exposed to more movies his age and it’s great to have on in the background when I’m doing laundry and other things. We turn the tv off when it is “work” time or constructive play.

As you can see, I enjoy a variety of different movies depending upon what I am in the mood for, who else is watching, and whose not home. My dad hates horror, so I watch that on my kindle when he isn’t home. 🙂

With Love,

Selena

  1. I’m still on season 3 of switched at birth. I’m so behind on all the abc family/ freeform shows! But I’ve watched some of the new ones. The bold type premiered last summer and Beth and I watched it together and loved it. There’s one called grownish that’s ok, it’s only the first couple of episodes so I can’t say if it is good or not.

    1. I haven’t watched any new shows. I can barely keep up with a few on tv with everything going on. If it’s not on Netflix, I’m not watching it. The only show I’m watching is the X Files and I need to watch last Wednesday’s show. lol

      1. it’s so easy to fall behind. netflix and hulu are great fo4 things like that. the freeform shows are on hulu, you can get that with a student discount for $5 so i split the cost with beth so it’s only $2.50 for each of us. that’s where i’ve been watching younger as well.
