What I Watched June 2021: TV and Movies

Movies Skim watched The Big Sick. What am I missing? Why was this rated so highly? I have a tendency to assume that non Hallmark Rom Coms are better in quality (plot, acting, production), not just Hallmark with adult content, but well, some of them are just Hallmark with adult content and a bigger budget.… Continue reading What I Watched June 2021: TV and Movies

Mystery Blogger Award

Elizabeth from Autumn Ink tagged me for the Mystery Blogger Award. What is the first pairing you remember shipping? Hmm, maybe Heidi and Peter from the 1980’s Heidi, but then I also had a crush on Peter myself. That at least was one of my earliest shippings.   What is the weirdest, most unusual, or one-of-a-kind thing… Continue reading Mystery Blogger Award

What I Watched in February 2021

New to Me Movies While You Were Sleeping. Eh. Cheaper by the Dozen 1 and 2. Eh . . . except Tom Welling is so handsome (and I can say that, he was in his twenties), maybe I should watch Smallville . . . Ramona and Beezus. Super cute, and I teared up. This is… Continue reading What I Watched in February 2021

Heidi’s Valentine’s Day Period Drama Party Tag

I’m joining here: Heidi’s Valentine’s Day Period Drama Party Tag. 1) Your current three (or up to five!) favorite period dramas? Does Cinderella 2012 count? Ever After is an evergreen favorite. I honestly feel that I’ve worn all the other ones (the Jane Austen adaptations) out with over watching, and I’ve not found anything new… Continue reading Heidi’s Valentine’s Day Period Drama Party Tag

Boy-Crazy vs Intellectual: Another False Dichotomy Pet-Peeve

One can be man-crazy (or comparatively so) and not let that ruin one’s life. It can be a part. Certainly there are girls/women who seem to have few interests if not only this one, and this man-crazy features largely, and it is crazy and toxic and they are blind to type of guys they end… Continue reading Boy-Crazy vs Intellectual: Another False Dichotomy Pet-Peeve

What I Watched: December 2020

This is very ’90’s early ‘0’s and Star Wars heavy. I of course watched plenty of Hallmark, but it peters out towards Christmas when one has been overdosing since November. I started using my Disney+ more this month than I did in November. Friends. I think I was still rewatching bits of Friends during my… Continue reading What I Watched: December 2020

Attitudes Toward War Exemplified in Friendly Persuasion

Earlier this years, something in the Speaking with Joy Chesterton episode with Boze Herrington triggered me to think about the topics pacifism/just war/protection in Friendly Persuasion (I love this film, it is so sweet and homey and unexpectedly deep) with actors Gary Cooper, Dorothy McGuire, and Anthony Perkins. It centers around a Quaker family in… Continue reading Attitudes Toward War Exemplified in Friendly Persuasion

What I Watched: November 2020

Edited 12/27/20. Um, so I left off several things I watched because I didn’t look at the list I was keeping. An Inspecter Calls. I can’t recommend this to everyone, its very dark, very dark and hopeless, doesn’t end well. I don’t really agree with the social portrayal, its far too simplistic and takes agency away… Continue reading What I Watched: November 2020

Endgame

I wrote this after watching Endgame what was, it a year, two years ago? I have a problem with delayed responses to movies, I wrote this list out and then delayed writing it out into a real review, but since I’ve already done this, and I don’t like deleting things, I’ll try to brush it… Continue reading Endgame

Disney Live Action Opinions

I’m going to try to see if I can really clear out my drafts. I have 40+ I think, plus all my random word documents with opinions and Evernote notes. I think I’d like to post more because I clearly have a lot to say, albeit possibly lots of repetitive things, not super immediately, because… Continue reading Disney Live Action Opinions

What I Watched: September and October 2020

I forgot to do a movie round up for September and since I’ve not really been watching much I thought I put September and October together. September What a Girl Wants. I needed a nice, fluffy funny film, and this delivered, especially a certain hilarious scene with Colin Firth dancing in front of the mirror,… Continue reading What I Watched: September and October 2020
