What I've Been Watching Lately + Ratings
One of the (few) things I admire about my dad is how little he watches television. Since I was a child, it fascinated me, and I tucked that cool personality trait into my back pocket and became the girl who hasn't seen anything. Seriously. If you ask me if I've seen a popular tv show or movie, the answer is probably no.
However, I'm not immune to a cozy night in watching a movie, and over the last few months I've entered a big tv phase. So, I decided to gather up some of the shows and movies I've seen recently and give them stars accordingly.
I saw a lot of clips from this show on TikTok and Instagram, so I decided to watch it not knowing what I was getting myself into. I actually cried during every episode, it was so sad but so good.
God's Crooked Lines
I used to think I was a huge scary movie person (I still kind of am,) but I've recently found out I'm not as into the jump scares as I am the vibe of not knowing what is going on. This was the perfect movie for that, just when I thought I knew what was happening, I didn't. But I wanted to.
While I was watching this movie, I enjoyed it, but now that I think back, it was pretty forgettable. Innocent deaths aren't really my thing, and men who think they can hide huge things from their wives.
This was another movie that gave me my fix of not knowing what was going on, but the second I did, I lost interest. While most viewers probably appreciate all of the answers, I felt like they gave me too much of an explanation at the end and it killed it for me. Very interesting though.
(SA Warning) This whodunit-esque series had my attention from episode one. While I was dying to find out who sent the text, I was also dying for the men to be confronted with what they had done. I loved how the movie gave many flashbacks to provide a full-picture view and really drive in just how bad the men's actions were.
Looking back, I probably should have seen the twist in this series coming, but I was so interested in the story being written that I didn't think the show could get more interesting. It's like two crazy stories packed into one.
This movie sounded like something I would like, and I tried so hard to get into it, but I couldn't. About 15 minutes in, it lost my interest, and I let it play in the background for another 30 until I finally turned it off. If someone else watches it and thinks it's worth pushing through, please let me know.
Disappearance at Clifton Hill
Do you ever watch a movie that makes you think "why the hell are you doing this?" That's every single second of Disappearance at Clifton Hill. Seriously, I appreciate it from a movie standpoint but there cannot be people in real life who would do this to themselves.
Aside from it making no logical sense, I really enjoyed the twists and roadblocks placed throughout the movie. However, I was not pleased with the ending.
This series was very hard to get through simply because of all of the sex scenes. The only reason I was able to power through was a deep need to know what was going to happen and watching this "perfect" family unfold.
I Came By
I didn't know if I was going to like this movie or not, because it's not quite what I imagined a graffiti artist to get into. It was pretty suspenseful and gave me a healthy amount of irritation.
The Chalk Line
This movie stressed me out and made me sad at the same time. It's actually one of the few times I have been okay with a happy ending in a movie.
