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.

Maid

★★★★★

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.


Loving Adults

★★★★

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.


Faithfully Yours

★★★

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.


Two Summers

★★★★

(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.


Black Butterflies

★★★★★

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.


The Stranger

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.


Obsession

★★

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.
