Top 10 Reviews – February 2022
The month of February seemed to fly by yet we got some incredible film and TV shows that, of course, I had to give spotlight to. But what were the top 10 reviews of February? Keep reading to find out…
Why I Stopped Watching Inventing Anna
I was so excited for this TV show as crime shows are right up my street. It reminded me of the Tinder Swindler, however this being a reconstruction meant that not everything went the way I wanted it to, and during episode three I decided to stop watching. Click the title above to find out why.
The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part
I remember watching the first Lego movie and being in awe at how amazing it was, so how could a sequel hold up? In honesty, while it is still a great film, it certainly didn’t hold a candle to the original. This review goes more in depth into why I think that was.
Inside Dubai: Playground of the Rich
Dubai is the new American dream, the hotspot for expats to go and recreate themselves in a warmer, sunny climate. But is it all that it seems? In this show we don’t only dive into the world of the rich and fabulous but also people behind-the-scenes keeping this illusion alive. Is it really all that it’s stacked up to be?
A fascinating look at abuse where you believe your abuser is dead yet he is still haunting you from beyond the grave. Don’t think that means it’s a supernatural film but rather a technological one of how terrifying one persons control can be on another, and how far they will go to make sure they never lose that control.
The weakest of the three seasons in my opinion. This one brings to a close Tony’s life after his wife’s death and everything that he has gone through. While it may be the weakest in my eyes that does not make it bad, and it is a wonderful ending to a show that everyone should watch to really appreciate their life and the people around them.
Zara McDermott: Uncovering Rape Culture
A fascinating look at rape culture in our schools and how people are tackling it and why it’s not good enough. Zara is really showing herself to be a fantastic documentarian and I’m excited to see what work she does in the future too.
A look back at what I think is one of the strongest seasons of Downton Abbey. A fascinating look at World War I and how the changing tides in our world changed the course of the family’s lives forever. It really helped bring home how colossal the scale was of the First World War and how no one would believe that a second one would happen only decades later.
A semi-boring crime film about a crime novelist’s sister who is murdered and her dark secret is uncovered in that she is a BDSM camgirl. This story could’ve been fantastic but the way it was executed was lacklustre and every time this film is brought up I constantly have to go back on Google to remember what it was about.
A film that starts off as underwhelming and becomes a spectacle. I really enjoyed this film for its imagination and storytelling and how it pulled on different media subjects of the past which I also reference in this review. It may not be the perfect thriller horror but it has a lot going for it and it makes you wonder if you went to Fantasy Island, what would your ultimate fantasy be?
The documentary that has been on everyone’s lips since it came to Netflix. A fascinating look at the world of online dating and how you should never trust people online as they could literally be anyone they wanted. This is a fascinating look at how three central women were swindled by a man masquerading as a diamond millionaire when really he was no better than the rest of us.
I look forward to all that we have in March not only the warm weather, the clocks changing in the UK, and Spring being thrust upon us but also for all the TV and films we have to enjoy too. I hope it is another fantastic month and I look forward to seeing you there!
Until next time.
