Emma 2020 Impressions

Buckle up y’all, I watched the 2020 Emma with my four sisters and my sister-in-law (and my 4 month niece, her first period drama, can’t say she appreciated the experience), and I have plenty of thoughts. I watched it this late because I needed some time to get over the irritation I felt for yet… Continue reading Emma 2020 Impressions

Inklings August 2020: The Apple Dumpling Gang

I’m linking up with Heidi’s Inkling prompt series here. The prompt for this one was a bar scene. I haven’t seen too many Westerns, and it would have to take a super fantastic bar scene to wipe out the first one that came to mind which was one from The Apple Dumpling Gang. Oh, how… Continue reading Inklings August 2020: The Apple Dumpling Gang

Little Women 2019 and Why I’ll Never Love a Little Women Adaptation

***Spoilers and a VERY Critical Review*** *************************************** I was not originally going to see this. I don’t usually see movies in theatres, and I didn’t even really want to try this one at all. I was horrified by the non-American and otherwise poor casting. Laurie is not a frail, delicate French-American boy. He was a… Continue reading Little Women 2019 and Why I’ll Never Love a Little Women Adaptation

What I Read and What I Watched: July 2019

I didn’t read much in July. I brought several books on vacation and barely read at all. I was not in the mood, but my younger sisters started watching Psych and got me hooked again. I’d meant to rewatch those at some point. I remember one blogger recently asking if people preferred Monk or Psych.… Continue reading What I Read and What I Watched: July 2019

What I Watched: February 2019

Hallmark The Story of Us. Adorable Love, Romance, and Chocolate. Adorable Hannah’s Law. The has to be one of the dumbest movies Hallmark has ever made. It tried to be a prequel to famous Westerns (just no). And Doc Holliday (see what I mean?) had the worst fake Southern accent I’ve ever heard (also, did… Continue reading What I Watched: February 2019

What I Watched: January 2019

Once again, Hallmark craze (or just laziness) takes over. Hallmarks Jingle Around the Clock. Cute except for a period of slanderous jumping to conclusions. A Midnight Kiss. He acted, she was non-human. And the writing/plot was dull. Winter Castle. Cute. One Winter Proposal. Cute. This was a sequel and actually ended up good. It won’t… Continue reading What I Watched: January 2019

Movies I’ve Watched: November 2018

I’m going to leave off Hallmark so I can do a larger Christmas post of them Vintage The Philadelpia Story. My sister-in-law mentioned how funny this was, so I was rather disappointed. I didn’t find it all that funny. There were a few funny bits, but most of it was boring, and some parts made… Continue reading Movies I’ve Watched: November 2018

Movies I’ve Watched: October 2018

I’ve sure been hitting my vintage stride. Hallmark has bored me (which is good considering my embarrassing spree over the last years), and I’ve really been needing comfort movies and classic comedies have been hitting the spot, or rather classic movies period, I just prefer the comedies, so I’m going to try to load up… Continue reading Movies I’ve Watched: October 2018

Movies I’ve Watched: September 2018

Hallmark Love in Design. Not one of the better Hallmarks. Modern To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. I like some of it better than the book. Peter, for example, he seemed like a nice kid. In the book he seemed like a two-faced player who’d never really change). Laura Jean came across sweeter in… Continue reading Movies I’ve Watched: September 2018

What I’ve Watched Recently

YouTube Highlights The Bucket List Family on YouTube. Super cute family traveling the world. I also love their collaboration on the Home Love channel for their Hawaii house. I was trying to find some goal and planning resources and happened across Lavendaire. I love her aesthetic, it is so feminine and soothing; sometimes planning resources… Continue reading What I’ve Watched Recently

What I’ve Watched Recently

I have fallen off watching Hallmark mostly because Mom stopped, thank goodness. I would come home from work with no motivation and will-power and just agree every time she asked. I hope this lasts. For my third free streaming trial recently, I tried Netflix again. When I had Amazon Prime and Netflix ages ago (maybe… Continue reading What I’ve Watched Recently
