February Movie/TV Wrap Up

For being the shortest month of the year, I certainly watched a lot of stuff in February.

High Fidelity – ♥♥♥♥

I was wary when I heard they were re-making John Cusack’s 2000 movie of the same name. I’m a huge fan of the movie and the book by Nick Hornby, but I was pleasantly surprised. It helped that Hornby acted as a writer and executive producer; having his blessing and input gave me hope.  Then I saw Jake Lacy was in it and *swoon*. In all seriousness, I really enjoyed this gender swapped take on such a classic. It was a refreshing look into modern dating without losing the nostalgia of a record store. If we get a season 2, I hope they stop being afraid of trying something new; so much of the dialogue from the original popped up, exact lines and cadence.

Movies:

The Photograph – ♥♥♥♥
Princess Cyd – ♥♥♥♥
Horse Girl – ♥♥♥.5
High Strung – ♥
Parasite – ♥♥♥♥♥
After – ♥♥
After Class – ♥♥♥♥
P.S I Still Love You – ♥♥♥♥
All the Bright Places – ♥♥

I watched some crap and I watched some total gems, but everything WAS entertaining. P.S. I Still Love You and All the Bright Places—two YA books that I love and both done for Netflix. P.S. I Still Love was really, really sweet and Jordan Fisher was such a dreamboat as John Ambrose McClaren. I just reread All the Bright Places earlier this week so I would be ready for the movie and I’m glad I did because I was reminded how great the book was and how it shouldn’t have been turned into a movie. It had nothing to do with the stars—I actually think Justice Smith as Finch was great—it just didn’t get the point across (may do a separate post all about this). The Photograph proved that Lakeith Stanfield is leading man material! Stayed pretty neutral on Horse Girl because I still don’t know how I feel about it. Very strange. I watched High Strung for a podcast episode of How Did This Get Made? and After deserves a spot on that podcast in the future.
