What I'm Watching

It was recently brought to my attention (by me, when I was talking about movies and kept interjecting “Oh, I have that movie, I just haven’t watched it yet” into the conversation) that I was WAAAAYYYYY behind on my movie watching. Tragically so.

So I set out to fix that.

I went through my movies. I compiled a list. I made a plan.

Then I dug in.

So here, in no particular order, is a short review of each of the movies I’ve watched recently.

Captain America Civil WarCaptain America: Civil War – Not actually one I own, but I was told I HAD to watch it since I was preparing to see Black Panther and CW introduced T’Challa’s story. OMG! Civil War completely rekindled my love of Marvel movies. Not that the love had ever died or anything, but it made me waaaaaant to catch up. So I did.

11/10. Would watch again.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 – Another one I don’t own but ended up watching on Netflix and my love for Peter Quill crosses GALAXIES! Too cheesy? Anyway. I loved loved loved the craziness Quill and his crew got into. MOAR STAR LORD!

11/10. Would watch again.

Doctor Strange – This was a movie I just sort of missed the first time around and WOW DID I ENJOY IT. Benedryl Cabbagepatch was FANTASTIC. Ha. Okay, I know his actual name. Regardless of what I call him, he was REALLY GOOD.

11/10. Would watch again.

Ant-ManAnt-Man – Guys. Guys. GUYYYYYS! I LOVED THIS MOVIE! I don’t know what I expected, but it was ridiculously fun! Paul Rudd completely killed me. Dead. I AM DEAD.

12/10. Would watch again and again and again.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – I mostly watched this one for Wonder Woman. In fact, I consider it the precursor to her movie. I must say, I couldn’t actually tell you anything that happened in it other than a big battle at the end with lots of ‘splosions. Still, I liked Diana Prince.

6/10. Would watch the Wonder Woman parts again.

Wonder Woman – HOO-BOY! GIMME! I’ve had this movie since before Christmas and I really really really feel like I should have watched it before now. I LIKED! A LOT.

11/10. Would watch again.

Suicide Squad – This one surprised me. Jared Leto’s Joker creeps me the fuck out so I wasn’t expecting to like this one as much as I did. Fortunately for me, he wasn’t in it all that much. Which means I ended up enjoying it far more than people told me I would.

9/10. Would watch again.

Terminator Genisys – Guys, this movie had some BAD reviews. I’ve had it sitting in my movie collection for AGES and I didn’t really want to watch it because I had such low expectations. BUT I LIKED IT HARD. Possibly because of Jai Courtney. I do enjoy a good looking man onscreen. Besides that, I’m a sucker for alternative timelines and how they can mess with your head. Bottom line, I liked this one far more than I thought I would and I am PLEASED by that.

10/10. Would watch again.

Since I have MOAR movies on tap, expect to see another one of these once I start crossing them off my list!

What I’m Watching (or What I’ve Finished Watching)

A couple weeks ago, I fangirled over the 12 Monkeys rewatch I was diving into. Well, I’ve finished all the available episodes (season 3 isn’t available for streaming yet and I NEEEEEED it!!) and…the level of WTF-ery in that show makes me ridiculously happy. Flipping back and forth through time makes for some insane storytelling. […]
