February Movie/TV Wrap Up

The month where I was crazy in my feelings and rewatched a whole bunch of stuff.

TV:

Framing Britney Spears – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Dickinson – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Mindy Project (rewatch) – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Normal People (rewatch) – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Love Life (rewatch) – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

FIVE STARS ALL AROUND! Not only did I rewatch all of The Mindy Project—as well as watch compilation videos on YouTube—but I went back and watched my favorite episodes a second time! I had been wanting to do this rewatch for awhile and it just reminded me how much I love that cast and their continuous revolving door of top notch guest stars. Once Dickinson‘s second season finished airing last week, I finally binged the whole show. It’s so smart and wonderfully done, I just love the period/modern mashup. And the guest stars! All I’ll say about The New York Times doc…#FreeBritney

Movie:

Mank – ⭐️⭐️.5
Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
One Night in Miami – ⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Map of Tiny Perfect Things – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
To All the Boys: Always and Forever – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (rewatch) – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You (rewatch) – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Digging for Fire (rewatch) – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Drinking Buddies (rewatch) –
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

When I wasn’t watching New Girl clips on YouTube, I was watching some Jake Johnson movies because he is my forever fictional boyfriend. I love that both Digging for Fire and Drinking Buddies—done by Joe Swanberg, shooting on actual film—work without a set script. They rehearse and talk through each scene heavily and then just let it rip. The finale in the To All the Boys trilogy was just perfect. I’m such a huge fan of the books AND the movies and I think they wrapped it all up so nicely, I know I’ll probably rewatch it again in a few months. The Golden Globes were at the end of the month and even though I was less than thrilled with the nominees, I tried to prepare, a little. I thought I was going to really love Mank since it’s about Old Hollywood and moviemaking, but damn, was it slow and boring. In the technical sense, it was incredibly shot and sounded amazing and Gary Oldman always pulls off a strong performance, but I tuned out for a lot of it. Seeing how electric Chadwick Boseman was in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom just depressed me. He’ll definitely win the Oscar for sure.
