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

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…

JUNE 2016 The Decoy Bride (09 06 2016) - In attempt to watch something after Jessica Jones where David Tennant is not a psycho, I had this in the queue. Tennant and Kelly Macdonald in Scotland can't go wrong? Well, the script is not great. This is he kind of romantic comedy that could have made more money ten or twenty years ago, but is very much out of favour. There were trite and cliche…

The 40-Year-Old Virgin (03 05 2016) - I'm long overdue to watch this, but I do not like Apatow humor most of the time. I do like Steve Carell and Paul Rudd. Carell works for me because there is such a sweetness to him that works really well here. I did not find a lot of the humor funny, but I think the actors did well. Hackers (07 05 2016) - So 90s. This is…

Movies in Theatres: For some reason, Wordpres didn't save that last month I saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens on 29 December 2015. I enjoyed it. I really look forward to rewatching it on DVD and the next episode in the series. Movies at Home: Belle (16 01 2016) - Period piece. If you like Amazing Grace which is also another Georgian abolition movie, this is it. Honestly, gorgeous period details and wonderful acting. I…
