As a big Jon Bernthal fan, whose used to his blink and miss it roles in a lot of films, I’m happy to report he’s got a nice meaty part in this one.
Meet Cassie Bowden: She drinks and makes terrible decisions and then she drinks some more to help her get through her terrible decisions. And I have to say I think Kaley Cuoco was perfect for this role because in other hands she might be maddening but I actually… love her.
So being that I’m in the mood for some good thrillers/mysteries I was excited to see the trailer for The Flight Attendant pop up this morning!
And even better it looks really good…

Father on Deathbed: Don’t go back to that house. It’s not safe for you.
Mother: Promise me you won’t go to the house. I’ll buy it off you as is for full price just don’t go…
Maggie: (A chapter later.) Hey mom! Guess where I am???
My original idea for this list was Books to Read when you have a Migraine but then I just expanded it to whenever you’re any kind of sick lying around in bed and want to think about something other than how shitty everything is but also don’t want to pick up the latest 700 page tome.
These are quick (mostly) fun reads!
Directed By: Jordan Peele
I really wanted to talk about Jordan Peele’s new movie Us. So I’m going to split it here- the first part of this will be just a regular review what I thought of the movie. Then the second part spoilers.

By: Karen M. McManus
So you’re going to live with grandma for a little while in a town you’ve never seen. You know it only because your Aunt disappeared from there and was never seen again. Or how about the body of a high schooler found at the murder theme park?
Or how about the hit and run victim you find on your way into town from that airport?
A Simple Favor
Directed by: Paul Feig
Forming friendships as adults can be really difficult sometimes. Hard to connect with people life gets in the way of new relationships and so on and so forth. So that’s why it was nice to see Stephanie and Emily’s friendship form in last years A Simple Favor.
Well, not so much but still. I finally watched this after putting it off for ages and it was just as nuts and fun as everyone told me.
So below what to look for in a new adult friend or not to look for depending on how bored you are/how much you value your life.
