Currently I’m tired, that’s what I am currently.
Currently I have one or two more year-end events to attend and the introvert in me just wants to crawl into bed and not come out until the booze starts flowing on New Year’s Eve.
But, since I can’t do that, I’m going to do my best to smile, participate and be merry.
And when all else fails, my bed and Netflix calls to me. So I’ll be watching all the things until I have to go back to work in a week or so.
I’ll be watching…
Black Mirror – Season 4
6 more episodes that i WILL stay up late binge watching. Also the first 3 seasons because why not?
The critics hate it, I loved it, but I’ll watch pretty much anything with Will Smith in it. But aside from him, I’m completely in love with the world the movie has created. I have so many questions! What war 2000 years ago? Why did the Orcs choose the wrong side? Why are the Elves so rich? And if they can do anything, what’s stopping them from taking over the whole planet? Why are the humans so lame? **insert many, many spoilery questions here**?!! I get that this movie is not for everyone, but isn’t that the point of Netflix making its own movies? Netflix makes movies and shows that don’t appeal to the masses, that the giant studios and TV networks would never make. Their loss, my gain. Keep ’em coming Netflix. I may not love everything you put out there, but I thank you for putting it all out there anyways.
Yes I watched it back in the day, yes, I’m totally dating myself here. I wasn’t going to watch this one, all that overblown 80’s drama, no thank you. BUT I figured it wouldn’t hurt to watch just one episode and I’ll tell you something, This Dynasty reboot does a really good job updating the show to present times, while still keeping a lot of the old-school story, drama, and yes, even clothes, on point! This show isn’t for everyone, but give it a try, you just might end up being a fan. It’s a modern soap opera and I do love a good soap opera!
What Happened to Monday (7 Sisters)
Another sci-fi movie for those of us who like such things. What Happened to Monday is the story of what happens when one sister out of a secret group of seven goes missing in a world where siblings have been outlawed. Plenty of guns a blazin’ and secret government conspiracy-type stuff going on. I recommend it if nothing but for the fact that Noomi Rapace plays all of the sisters. ALL OF THEM! It’s pretty fantastic actually. I’m definitely watching this one again.
So if you need me I’ll be huddled up on my couch watching Netflix, only getting up to feed and/or play with my kids. Yup. That’s pretty much all I have planned until I’m forced to go back into the frozen tundra that is city when the food’s all gone.
Peace out 2017!
