I watched this movie exclusively because Barb from Stranger Things was in it. But when I started watching it, I fell in love.
This past weekend we had two Asian focused films come out. Crazy Rich Asians (which I have yet to see), and To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Luckily, the latter was a Netflix movie, so I watched it Saturday morning.
I did not expect to enjoy this. I picked it up because I saw tons of bookstagrammers with it, and knew there was a Netflix movie coming out, and I wanted to compare the two. But about 100 pages into the book I realized that I had underestimated it, and I needed to finish it.
As I’m sure many of you do, I tend to struggle to decide what to watch on Netflix. We have a couple things that we watch every night after work; we catch up on Game Grumps, Pet Collective, and Fail Videos on YouTube, and on Monday’s we watch Bob’s Burgers on Hulu. But the other day, we saw an advertisement for Aggretsuko, and I fell in love immediately.
I spent a good chunk of my high school years watching the original FullMetal Alchemist anime and loving it. I still get nostalgic for it even now. When I first heard about the live action version and saw that first trailer, I needed to see it. I hoped and prayed for it to come to American theaters. It didn’t, but thankfully Netflix got it. I just watched it, and let me tell you how much I loved it.
A few weeks ago, I got bored and decided to scroll through my Netflix list to find something new. I landed on Syfy’s Haven. It had been on my list for a while so I thought what the heck. I’ll let you in on a secret – it’s literally only taken me about 3-4 weeks to finish this show. It’s so good.
A week or so ago, I woke up extra early (thanks, brain), got a bunch of stuff done, and wore my injured self out. After hobbling around the apartment for 2 hours, I plopped on the couch and fired up Netflix. Bright was in the new section, and I had been harassed by it daily at work; ads for Bright were popping up on YouTube and Spotify. So I figured, why not?
