WATCHED IN FEBRUARY

I watched quite a few amazing films and series that I thoroughly enjoyed this month. There is one particular series I have been binging excessively and one film I have not been able to get out of my mind.

I tried to make reading more of a priority this month because I did not get as much done as I would have liked in January, but I have not quite been feeling in the mood to read lately. So, I decided to take it easy and read when I was in the mood to do so.

Anyway, let us look at what I have been watching.

Miss Americana (2020)

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Let me start off by saying that I never watch documentaries. This one definitely changed the way I saw quite a few things. I never expected that I would enjoy it so much. Taylor Swift is an artist whose music and work I have always loved but I was just never interested enough interested to delve further. What I am trying to say is that I loved her work but I was never the biggest fan, you know?

After I saw this documentary, I saw her in a much clearer light. I got to know more about her and I think Taylor really poured her heart out. I admire her courage and determination, as well as her strength and willpower. She is, in my eyes, a really great role model because she teaches you to keep going and to work hard so that your dreams will come true. I think it was really well done and there were quite a few times where I found tears streaming down my cheeks.

Even if you do not know her that well, I think you will end up loving this one.


To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You (2020)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I completely forgot this film was coming out until I saw it on Netflix on the release day. Needless to say, I dropped everything I was doing and started watching it. The first movie was so hyped about and I do have to say, both these movies are really cute and easy to love.

Personally, I found them a bit too hyped about. It may just be because I am not a huge fan of clichés and there were quite I few times I could not help but cringe. The characters did irritate me a bit in this film and I found myself so frustrated with Peter. Do not get me wrong, I really loved this film and I am so excited to see what else is coming.

P.S. Being one of the biggest bookworms, I have been wanting to binge the trilogy for so long and I think it would be ideal to get to them soon.


Pride and Prejudice (2005)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I was really excited to finally get to watching this film as I have been wanting to for such a long time. I tried to watch the film as I read the book but ended up finishing the whole thing in one go.

I really loved the film, setting, characters and story. Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth are just so perfect and I could not get enough of them. The only thing that I want to mention is that I felt a bit lost at times. I had to rewind now and then because it felt as if I have missed something. That is probably just me but I just thought I should mention it. Overall, I really loved it and I think Keira Knightly did a fantastic job bringing Elizabeth Bennet to life.


All the Bright Places (2020)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This film has been one of my most anticipated ones for this year. After seeing it being released yesterday, I immediately started watching it. I read the book two years back and really loved it. I found it so heartbreaking yet beautiful at the same time. I do have to say, my reading style, taste and rating system have changed a lot over the past year and I believe if I were to reread it, my opinion and rating will be different. 

I think the film was really well done and I ended up really enjoying it. The settings in the film were almost exactly how I pictured them in my head as I read the book, as well as the characters. My rating, I think, is between 4 to 4.5 stars but I like to give my films a full rating, so four stars it is.

It is a film I recommend you watch because it deals with such important topics. Trigger warning for depression, mental illness and suicide.

Friends (S2:E1—S5:E24)

I probably went way overboard with binging this one. Friends is a series I never thought I would like as much as I do. Personally, I only feel more intrigued the further I go on and I always find myself laughing one or two times during an episode. The only thing that majorly bothered me was Ross. I do not know why but he just irritated me so many times during the last few episodes I watched (probably an unpopular opinion).

Anyway, I am also so excited for the Friends reunion! I absolutely cannot wait to see what we shall get.


The Good Place (S1:E1—S1:E3)

A lot of people have been talking about this series and I was really intrigued as well.

Honestly, I think this series is so funny and I am excited to continue watching it. I may binge this one soon. 


Gossip Girl (S1:E1)

I do not know much about this series but have heard about it quite a few times over the past couple of years. Apparently it is adapted from a book series and as a bookworm, that really got my interest.

The first episode was good but I just do not know if it is something I shall continue to watch. I may give it a try for another episode or two but it is just not my taste. I do not know, what do you think?
