The Other Side of the Bonnie and Clyde Story

The Highwaymen

Directed By: John Lee Hancock

The first I heard of this movie was from the descendants of the lawmen talking about how nice it was to see this story from their side. When I jumped over to Netflix for the preview that, and the cast, was good enough to get me watching something I otherwise might not have bothered with.

What do a highly advertised first-class musical festival that never happened and a game-changing medical start-up company have in common?

Well, felonies for one big thing.

What I Learned from the Grishaverse

Shadow and Bone

I finish the whole of the Shadow and Bone series this month! I didn’t love it but I am really excited about a Netflix series to come. Holy crap. Nikolai and the Darkling are going to get cast…

And I’m going to realize how wrong my head canon was because I always age people up but that’s a story for another time. This is about what did I learnt from my journey in the Grisha-verse.

Spoilers!

5 Reasons to Watch The Christmas Chronicles

The Christmas Chronicles

The Christmas Chronicles

Directed by: Clay Katis

So Christmas/Holiday themed movies can be very hit or miss for me. I have certain things I don’t like that (almost all) the television movies fall victim to. Hell, they don’t just fall victim to it they embrace the tropes and wring them out until there’s nothing left but sad little tissues on the ground crying, “Just because it’s Christmas maybe  you shouldn’t have married the guy you only knew for a week…”

But I digress.

Daredevil vs. Kingpin

daredevil season three

 Daredevil Season3

Grade: A

Daredevil Season Three will likely go down as the quickest I’ve ever binge watched anything. Four days. I couldn’t stop. It was, for me, the very definition of addictive.

The Drinking Scene I Wanted: The Crown Season 2

Queen Elizabeth in the Crown

The Crown Season 2

Grade: B+

The Crown apparently thinks its alright to mention Phillip going and getting drunk with the Queen Mum and Tommy Lascelles and not actually show us… Like come on! In a season fairly heavy on inner personal turmoil that’s the stuff I want to see!

After watching Doctor Who since 9 (Christopher Eccleston) and giving up sometime around the birth of Clara- who annoyed the hell out of me- it was so much fun to check out the new series and really enjoy it this Sunday!

Finally Mulan!

Mulan

Mulan

Directed By: Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook

Grade: A

I watched Mulan for the first time ever this month and I’m using it for my Blindspot Series for September even though it wasn’t on my list!

I was more than a little excited to see this one (and a couple of other Disney animated movies I missed) on Netflix. So it was lovely to check Mulan off my list.

My Newest Obsession: The Crown

The Crown Season 1

Created By: Peter Morgan

Grade: A

So at this point I can tell how much I like a television show simply by actually finishing it. And finishing it super quickly. To be honest I wasn’t originally interested in watching this Netflix show- based on the reign of Queen Elizabeth. I started watching with my mother and then couldn’t stop.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Directed By: Mike Newell

Grade: B

I had been waiting for this one to hit Netflix ever since I saw the trailer many months ago. Plus I did really enjoy the book on which it was based. I also generally love Lily James- so yeah, a little excited for this movie to hit.
