What I’ve Been Watching … #9

Hello!

I have no interesting introduction today. I also had no idea that I had watched quite as much as I’ve got listed here so I’m just going to say “happy Wednesday” and move on into the wrap up :))


The Invitation

Gonna admit. I watched this trailer, saw that Thomas Doherty was playing a rich, probably evil vampire and I was on board. It helped that my uni had a promotion running with the local cinema where students got in for free on random Thursday so I dragged my friends to watch it.

This movie was ok. I really wish it had gone full force with the horror elements. Like this should have had an R rating or something to live up to its potential. It was fun and all, but ended up feeling like something I’d seen before.

What I’ve Been Watching … #8

Hello. I am tired.

My study abroad uni has this cool thing where on a random day in the fall semester they cancel classes and everyone goes to the lake for the day.

The down side to this is, despite the busses not leaving til 10am, they wake everyone up at 5am. Add a day in the sun, kayaking and swimming, to the 5am wake up call and me still having homework to do for tomorrow’s classes, what ends up happening is me being exhausted.

My eyes are literally closing as I’m writing this and all I want to do is curl up in bed … but my roommate has friends over watching a movie and I didn’t have the social capacity to deal with new people right now.

And so here I am wrapping up everything I’ve been watching recently. I’ve not done one of these in a while and I’ve watched a lot so I’m just gonna jump right into it.


Bullet Train

You ever read a book or watch a movie that scratches an itch inside your brain you didn’t know you had? That’s how this movie made me feel.

The Book Adaptations Tag 🎬

Hello and howdy 🤠

Big things are happening when it comes to book-adaptations! Heartstopper has become a worldwide sensation, Shadow & Bone season 2 is filming, the Percy Jackson trio casting has been announced and they are perfection, and there’s so much more!!

All very exciting so it seems like there’s no better time then now to do the Book Adaptations Tag which I was tagged to do by Madeline @ The Bookish Mutant. Thank you Madeline!!


What is the last book adaptation movie you saw?

Not a movie, but I feel like a lot of books are being adapted into TV shows more then movies nowadays so we’re couting. Of course the last book adaption I watched was Hearstopper.

I watched this show in one morning on the day it was released and am still talking and thinking about it. I talked about it in a dedicated post but I’ll repeat it here: THIS IS HOW YOU ADAPT A FAN FAVOURITE!

I just finished Heartstopper. Smiling and Crying.

Hi. Hello. 👋

It is currently Friday 22nd April aka Hearstopper Season 1 release day and … I’ve finished the entire series already. Honestly there was no better way to spend my morning. And now I plan on spending my afternoon talking about it!

*SPOILERS*

Dear Hollywood, please adapt these books!

Hello 🙂

Did I have pizza from uni for lunch? Yes. Did I just order a pizza from the shop down the road? Yes. Yes I did. Its 9:30pm, I haven’t eaten since 11:30am and I cannot be bothered to cook. Please don’t judge me.

While I’m waiting for my pizza to be delivered though, I figured it was the best time to talk book-to-screen adaptations, specifically which ones I want to see be a real thing.


The Brown Sister Trilogy by Talia Hibbert

So me finishing, and loving, Act Your Age, Eve Brown is what inspired this entire post because all I want from life now is a movie trilogy following each book in this series.

What I’ve Been Watching Recently… #7

Howdy 🤠

I should be in uni right now but instead I’m still in my pyjamas, drinking a cup of tea and doing a colouring book. I just really couldn’t sit through my morning lecture and personal development session today. Jury’s still out on if I go to my 4pm lecture.

I am getting cramp from colouring though so it’s time to take a break and instead talk about what I’ve been watching recently 🙂


The Batman

Once upon a time I said I’d never watch any new batman movies unless it was more Lego-Batman … then they cast Robert Pattinson and I caved so quickly.

This movie was so freaking. First of all, I saw it for free! My friends boyfriend works at a cinema and got us in for free. So it was already a good day but then I watched this movie and it got even better.

The cinematography! The humour! The action!! My favourite scene of the whole movie was when Battinson just yeeted out the window, had a parachute, and then flew straight into a bridge, and hobbled away. I love the aesthetic of this Batman: greasy emo. I finished watching it and immediately wanted to watch it again.

Book to movie adaptations coming in 2022

Hi👋 My eyeballs hurt.

After multiple days of stressing because I can’t figure out what I’m doing for my final essay, I finally had a breakthrough today! I think the relief of knwing what I’m doing has just sapped the energy out of me. My brain exerted itself wayyy too or something and now it’s dead.

What I’m trying to say is that I should be working on this essay I’ve finally figured out, but instead I’m sprawled on my couch because I’m tired. I need to recharge and that’s okay. I’ll get back to it tomorrow.

In the mean time, I thought I’d talk a bit about some book-to-movie adaptations … or book-to-tv I suppose.

I got all my information from this website so if it’s wrong blame them, not me.


Hearstopper by Alice Oseman

I don’t think you understand just how excited I am for this TV show. I hope to God it comes out over the holidays: Easter or summer I don’t care. I will be dedicating my life to this show. (I swear to God if this isn’t out by summer I’ll revolt).

Very grateful this is being released through Netflix. What’s up with streaming services releasing an episode a week? No. I want to binge this shit!! Thank you!!

Hand in hand with that excitement also comes fear. Charlie Spring is a precious bean but he has his problems and it breaks my heart. Am I mentally prepared to watch that?

All the TV shows I plan on watching instead of writing my essays :)

Hey and howdy, happy Monday.

Today I have the house to myself. After a tiring weekend of packing my bags to leave uni, saying goodbye to my housemates who are ditching me for study abroad in America next semester (😭 ) and then actually leaving uni, I’m ready for a rest.

Sure I’ve had the weekend but there’s no such thing as resting when there’s my 10 and 7 year old brother and sister running around the place. How they have so much energy I’ll never know.

They’re off at school though and my dads at work which means I’m spending the day on the couch and getting started on my Christmas break Watch-List. Sure I’ve got two essays and a piece of 2500 word creative writing to crack on with because the semester isn’t technically over yet, but I’m just gonna ignore that for now.

Since I’m procrastinating today anyways, I figured I’d share with you the shows I plan on watching over the next three weeks.


Only Murders in the Building

Was my initial interest in this show all because of Selena Gomez? Yes. No shame. I’ve been obsessed with her since the Wizards of Waverly Place and Princess Protection Programme days.

I’ve actually watched the first episode of this but got too busy to continue. I was really intrigued by what I watched though and am excited to continue on.

🎞Everything I’ve Been Watching Recently … #4🎞

Hi. I’m bored.

I’m currently suffering through health and safety training videos for work and they’re the most mind numbing things in the world. The essence of it is “have some goddamn common sense”.

To keep me from falling asleep at my desk, I figured I’d talk about some shows and movies (mostly movies) I’ve been watching recently. I’ve never watched so many movies in such a short space of time before so let’s just jump in.


Loki

Gonna be honest with you, out of the three Marvel series I’ve watched, I think I understood the actual plot of this the least. Don’t get me wrong I really enjoyed it, just don’t ask me to explain the ending.

Mobius is now one of my faves and I loved seeing Loki again. I wasn’t a huge fan of the Loki + Sylvie relationship, they’re literally just the alternate universe version of each other and it weirds me out but I digress. I am excited for Season 2, whenever that may be, and although I know it’s not going to happen, I wouldn’t mind seeing Loki rock up in the Doctor Strange movie.

🎞Everything I’ve Been Watching Recently … #3🎞

Hello and howdy 😊🤠

I have some time to kill. I’m going to the fair tonight with some friends and I am so hyped for it, especially since it was cancelled last year. The only problem is that I’m not meeting my friends till 11pm.

Obviously you don’t get the full fair experience unless it’s dark and also, I couldn’t think of anything worse then being stuck in a metal contraption in the middle of the day in 37*C weather. That sounds like actual torture. So we’re going in the middle of the night.

Since I have a fair few hours to go, I figured I’d take this time to talk about some of the stuff I’ve been watching recently.


Unpregnant

This movie has the potential of becoming one of my favourites. I foresee myself re-watching this a lot in the future! Unpregnant is a book to movie adaptation for the book of the same name. I haven’t read the book, and don’t me but I don’t plan too. I got enough enjoyment from watching the film.

It was simultaneously really funny and entertaining while also touching on important matter in regards to abortion and bodily autonomy.
