books, knitting, food and whatever else I want to write about

One of the best mysteries ever written. I thought I read this book but then I checked GoodReads for the date and this blog. I have read a lot less of Christie than I thought. It feels as if I've read more because I've watched several adaptations to her books including this one. I watched at least one version. As a result, I was spoiled to the big twist. I had forgotten the finer details…

Intimate Strangers (06 07 2019) - Watched on a flight to South Korea. This is the Korean version of the Italian Perfect Strangers. I haven't see the Italian version but I saw the French one a couple months ago. This was much better than the French one as they were able to walk the line with the black comedy better. It also felt a bit more honest and I really liked the cast. The ending…

Always Be my Maybe (01 06 2019) - Very cute and funny. I liked a lot of the jokes and could relate to a lot of the character touches. Not all the jokes landed or the pacing at times, but it worked for me. I rewatched the Keanu Reeves intro scene a few times. Madame de / The earrings of Madame de (07 06 2019) - Well shot with lovely visuals. An old French classic…

"Dix pour cent (Call my Agent!)" Season 3 (05-07 03 2019) - French comedy series on Netflix that I have been following. My French has been dropping off lately and I haven't been watching as many French things. I try to do it while knitting so this helped me finish the Pavement sweater. "Russian Doll" Season 1 (07 03 2019) - I like the time loop trope. I went in unspoiled and am so glad.…

King of thieves (18 02 2019) - We watched this for the great cast and while there are some funny moments due primarily to the cast chemistry, the script and pacing was off. Tone was a bit weird too; it was darkly funny but then other times it couldn't balance the darker moments. Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse (22 03 2019) - Very fun and worth the praise and help. This movie uses the animated medium…

Movies Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (04 01 2019) - Finally got around to watching this. It was on the long side but enjoyed most of the movie and its characters. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (06 01 2019) - Very fun. I love the jokes about video games and its tropes. Jack Black really stole his scenes. The cast was all great except Kevin Hart played himself. Definitely in for a sequel.…

Dark Shadows (02 10 2016) - I was feeling under the weather and nothing was on. I am over Depp and Burton films, but I do like Eva Green and Michelle Pfeiffer. It was an alright movie. Meh. Maleficient (02 10 2016) - Only watch 2/3 of this film. I like Angelina Jolie. The Vow (20 11 2016) - Romantic drama staring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams. This was only interesting to me because I…
