It was my website’s sixth birthday yesterday, the 21st of March, and as always as is tradition I wanted to look back on my top reviews of each month of the last year and revisit them with you!
This month has been incredible for me. I have started 2021 off strong and this month my website hit 50,000 all-time views which is absolutely insane! I am so thankful for every single person that has read my blog, so let’s go back to March 2020 when the world changed and see what people were reading then…
Starting the year off well with a very weird dating show where couples meet their possible future partners naked and then go on a fully dressed date later on. I had a lot to say about this show and it fits well with my Love Me Tinder review too if you want to read that.
This is my second favourite Daniel Sloss stand-up show, his first being Jigsaw, but it’s very insightful and I love his mixture of comedy and real life commentary. He is able to take the audiences’ awkwardness and mix it into something that makes him not only enjoy his show but his audience as well. I highly recommend his Netflix shows.
It seems people were pining for a Christmas movie at the start of Summer which I find quite funny. Die Hard is one of those movies that you have to watch because it is a classic and the way it is done is so clever.
A movie I watched way too late. I am slowly making my way through the rest of the Disney films but Tarzan is a great story with a wonderful soundtrack. It’s not my favourite Disney movie but definitely one that I enjoyed and would watch again.
An American Pie sequel that I was obsessed with when I was a teenager. The Naked Mile is one of those movies that’s super silly and makes you wish you went to a college like them. I do miss my university days quite a lot of these days with the going out and the having no responsibility, but if I went to American college, I think it would just be incredible to experience.
As I mentioned earlier this is my favourite Daniel Sloss stand-up show which makes me glad that other people appreciated it last year. It’s one of those shows that if you’re in a relationship or you’re single you can really connect with it and understand. It has funny moments, it has deeper more insightful moments, but it’s one of those shows that I recommend to absolutely everyone. It completely changed my outlook on relationships and that is not an exaggeration.
Ah the time of Netflix controversy! Cuties dropped on Netflix out of nowhere and everyone had something to say about it, so I thought I would personally go watch it and see if it was as bad as people were saying. Now there were a lot of issues with it, I will give it that, but I think the issue of the Internet is too many people explain their opinion without actually having watched it. My review is from the eyes of someone who has seen it first hand so I highly recommend this review.
A crime case that I was utterly fascinated by because of what happened within it and who it affected. This documentary uses actual footage from the case itself to explain the story and it is an absolutely fascinating watch. My heart goes out to the family and I hope Chris stays in jail for the rest of his life.
I am not a huge fan of period dramas but in the later end of 2020 I really got into them, and clearly other people did too. The Other Boleyn Girl was a fascinating watch that really shed light on what it was like to be Henry the Eighth‘s wife and how horrific life was back in those days. It’s a film full of twists and turns that I did not see coming and I really recommend it.
This film had such great potential. The idea and premise behind it was absolutely fantastic, but actually viewing the film was the biggest train wreck of my life. It dragged on, it was stupid, the acting was terrible, and I cannot say one good thing about it. This movie could’ve been so good and it’s such a shame that it fell so short.
Bridgeton was the newest hit show to come to Netflix. A mixture of Gossip Girl and period drama and, as I’ve already said, period dramas are not my thing. This show had a lot of potential and clearly for most it was very good but for me I just could not get into it, so I watched the first episode to let you know whether you should watch it and why. I won’t be continuing it but it’s a very interesting review and I have a lot to say.
My first time working with Shudder! They sent me a screener of their movie Shook and it blew up! Everyone enjoyed this review and it got some great retweets on Twitter as well. I highly recommend it if you enjoy horrors. It takes the suspense of the horror genre and social media and flips it on its head into something completely new and different, and while it was a bit cliché, I did thoroughly enjoy it.
And let’s take a look and see what people are enjoying in March…
Another Shudder screener. Lucky is a film about a woman who is constantly terrorised every night by the same masked man and she must throughout the film learnt to defend herself against this intruder, who doesn’t seem to plan on stopping. It’s a brilliant movie about feminism and women empowerment. I had my own thoughts on its ending so please read my review and let me know what you thought about the film!
Thank you so much for all your support during the last year! I can’t believe it’s been six years already and my website is just growing bigger and bigger each day. I hope to see you around very soon.
Until next time.
