Saturday Screen Time #16: It's been a few weeks

It has been a few weeks since I shared a recap of what I've been watching, and I've been watching so much TV that I've decided to expand this to TV instead of just film. TV season is coming up, after all! The Handmaid's Tale and Westworld are back! 


Girls - This show! How have I never heard of it?? I started watching because of Adam Driver and I stayed because it was amazing. This show definitely isn't for everyone. It's awkward and gross, but it's hilarious and heartwarming and I loved almost every second! I binged all six seasons in a couple weeks and will probably be watching again. Sadly, the ending was pretty awful. The entire last season kind of left a bad taste in my mouth, although it didn't ruin the show for me. (4/5 stars)

Mom and Dad - I had a feeling this movie was horror/comedy just based on the cast, but I didn't see comedy in any descriptions. I was right! This movie was hilarious and mildly frightening. Horror comedy is becoming one of my favorite genres and, while this isn't one of my favorites, it was a fun watch! (3.5/5 stars)

Harry Potter 2-8 - This was obviously a (ten thousandth) rewatch, but it was my first watch with my mom! She had only ever seen the first movie, which thankfully meant I didn't have to watch that one, so we watched Chamber of Secrets through Deathly Hallows Part 2 over the week she was visiting! I was so excited to see that she loved them and I got to watch 5-8 in 4K for the first time! (5/5 stars, obviously)

Avatar - This was another rewatch with my mom. We got to go to Pandora (at Animal Kingdom) while she was visiting, so of course she wanted to watch Avatar later that week! A friend let me borrow it in 3D and I got to see it for the first time in several years... and realized it kind of isn't that great. While the visuals are still really pretty, the rest of it is just okay. I still couldn't tell you much about any of the characters. (2.5/5 stars)

The Handmaid's Tale Season 2, Episodes 1-2 - It's back!!! I usually prefer to binge watch, but I'm honestly glad this particular show is released weekly. I watched the first two episodes of season two over two days and it was heavy. I really felt like I needed to watch something happy after! I honestly love this show so much more than the book! I can't wait to see what happens next for June. (5/5 stars)

Survivor: The Amazon - I've been slowly watching all the older seasons I hadn't seen before and, while I do love a lot of the players from season 6, this is definitely the most misogynistic season I've seen. I can't stand the tribe of men and one of the men in particular. I'm quickly coming to the end of this season and if a woman doesn't win, I'm rioting.

Avengers: Infinity War - This is the one I've been waiting for!! I got to see this Friday afternoon and I have SO MANY FEELINGS but no one I know has seen it yet and I am dying! This movie was just... so much. There was a lot going on and I am definitely going to have to go see it again because I feel like I missed things. I don't know how I'm going to make it to part two! (5/5 stars)
