Watch Guide For May 2020
Updated: 3 days ago
A few people have been looking forward to this list and I am happy as ever to provide this, a second month in a row. I will continue to add to it within the next two weeks of the month. I have been pretty busy with online classes and building my 3D arena I mentioned in my last weekend to do post. So here it is:
Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. The original of course. I have never seen this movie in all of childhood but if you have, its a good throw back to put on and set up a movie night with. I was so against watching this movie at first because of how shitty the new Netflix series is with Neil Harris. But I loved it! The story was so unique and fun to follow.
Killing eve. I've been meaning to watch this during some of my down time but I never got around to it. I've heard amazing things from people who also enjoyed Little Fires Everywhere.
The Book of Henry. I wanted to see this movie so badly when it first came out in 2017 but for some reason, never went to see it. With everything going on right now, I kind of regret not going to the movie theater all of the times that I had the opportunity to do so.
Self Made. The story of Madam CJ Walker. Lord when they cast Octavia for anything, she fucking KILLS. I'll even add The Help and Hidden Figures below this line because I know you all need a reminder of how bad ass this woman is. But anyway, this story was powerful. I have never seen something so motivating in my life (after the princess at the frog of course). But on Netflix? Who is responsible for this? Take all of my money now.
The Help. See above.
Hidden Figures. See above.
Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh. The first Candyman movie was in last month's watch guide so watching the second movie this month is a given. I don't know why I expected all of these candyman movies to be corny. They are all so raw and actually scary. The concept is unique, a few cheap scares, and a few gruesome images. I watched this on Crackle because it was free and my husband and I created a movie night where we counted down with a few other favorite movie lists we found on Reddit.
For Colored Girls. This movie is incredibly intense and I do not recommend it for the weak. My husband wont even sit through this entire movie. I am so glad to see this gem added to Netflix.
Bridge to Terabithia. If you have never seen this movie, it's time we ended our online relationship right here and now. Kidding. But this movie is such a huge part of my childhood. Just hearing the name brings be back so many happy memories of being in my middle school library balling my eyes out because you-know-who dies. It gives me so much Spiderwick vibes which excited me so much in youth to see strange creatures and make believe story lines. The weirdo in me is coming out.
Thankfully, there are a lot of throw back movies coming to Hulu and Netlfix within May so I am excited to update this list as they come out. Enjoy your time inside!
