A new feature, in which I share with you what I’ve been watching, and what I would recommend!
Hamlet (3 stars) – appreciated that it was totally unabridged, although it made it a monster-length movie
Persuasion (3.5 stars) – really rushed, although I loved the casting of Anne and Wentworth
Interstellar (3 stars) – not quite as much of a wow as I hoped
The Greatest Showman (4 stars) – will probably rewatch over and over, family-friendly, a visual treat, and the music is amazing
Captain America (5 stars) – my fourth time watching it, successfully got my friend obsessed
The Truman Show (5 stars) – entertaining, yet also deeply thought-provoking, great attention to detail, could write an entire book analyzing it…probably my favorite of the year so far!! must watch!!
Miracle (4 stars) – I always like sports movies more than I think I will
Black Panther (4 stars) – not my favorite Marvel movie, but really good, I loved Shuri, and I appreciated that they tackled really important issues without an agenda-y tone
The Importance of Being Earnest (4 stars) – absolutely perfectly-cast from the play, hilarious, just a really light and enjoyable movie (especially if you want to see Colin Firth in a very different role from Mr. Darcy)!
I Can Only Imagine (3 stars) – inspirational, and I cried a lot
The Great British Baking Show (season 1) – super fun and makes me hungry, the contestants are really positive and support each other (no backstabbing)
Friends (episodes 1-10) – started watching and decided to stop because it wasn’t really clean, so be warned, wouldn’t recommend starting at all because it’s addicting
Mansfield Park (miniseries) – not the highest-quality filming, loved some of the casting and hated others, but liked how true it was to the book
What did you watch in the last couple of months? Do you agree with my ratings? Do you want longer reviews or content guides for any of these movies? Let me know in the comments!
(Also let me know your thoughts on the format of this post. I’m experimenting and I want your suggestions and feedback!)
