My sister was in town for the last few weeks and was staying where I keep my TV so I definitely didn’t watch too many things this month. However, everything that I did watch was pretty wonderful.
WandaVision – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Allen v. Farrow – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Dead to Me – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
WandaVision ended towards the beginning of the month and I still can’t stop thinking about it. It was so well done, playing with classic TV tropes while still telling this overarching story. So many conspiracy stories on the Internet, there were so many ways this show could have gone. Such a great way to introduce the Marvel Universe to TV—I can’t wait to see what happens next. It’s disheartening when you learn people who’s work you enjoy and admire are garbage humans. Take, Woody Allen, for example. Annie Hall, Manhattan, and Midnight in Paris are some incredible movies, but after watching the horrific things he did in Allen v. Farrow, it’s hard to separate the work from the person.
Moxie – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Judas and the Black Messiah – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Promising Young Woman – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Center Stage (rewatch) – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Moxie was one of my favorite books of 2017 and when I heard my queen, Amy Poehler, was directing it for Netflix, I knew it was being left in very capable hands. Judas and the Black Messiah was such a powerful movie and I really think Daniel Kaluuya is going to win the Oscar. I have been waiting for Promising Young Woman ever since I heard about the movie when it was at Sundance a few years ago. I love Carey Mulligan and once I saw Bo Burnham as the love interest? SOLD. This movie blew me away. I don’t want to say much, but the screenplay is so smart and intricate. I just really, really loved this.
