I grew up watching the original Charmed back in the 90’s and early 2000’s. It was one of my favorite shows, and I knew from the moment a reboot was announced that it would never be as good as the original. In fact, I had no plans to even watch it. I saw the trailer and was not impressed, but then something happened. Curiosity got the better of me. I was curious to find out what would be different in the reboot, what would be the same or similar, and find out exactly how bad the reboot really was.
I watched two movies on Netflix over the weekend, Terrifier and It Follows. I just love horror, what can I say. Here are my thoughts on the two flicks.
I ordered two new movies, and they came in the mail on Friday. Just in time for the weekend! I saved them both for Saturday night and watched them one after the other. It definitely made for a fun evening. It’s so exciting watching new movies for the first time. Especially ones you’ve been wanting to see. Maybe there’s something nostalgic about it too, but actually having the physical copies instead of just watching on Netflix makes it even more exciting. I don’t know, maybe that’s just me.
I have been wanting to see both of these movies, but I had been putting it off because of bad reviews they had gotten. I usually don’t pay attention to movie reviews because most of the time movies I love have bad reviews and the movies that everyone else seems to love, I don’t really like. That’s why I finally said screw it and went ahead and bought them.
What have I been up to since I got back from Ocean City? Not too much, aside from going back to work, watching movies, and eating lots of food. I got to try some new food places recently, which I’ll get to later in the post. I seriously get so excited about food! Haha.
At the end of August, I got bored one evening while I was still on vacation, so I decided to get all glammed up. Where did I go? Nowhere, but who cares. Sometimes it’s just fun doing your hair and makeup for no reason other than you just feel like it.
Time for another recently watched post. I’m going to try to do one of these after every three to four movies I’ve watched. I might include shows as well, as I have some I’m currently watching. I want to get to the end of them though before giving my thoughts. I’ve watched a few more movies recently, so here are my thoughts on those. You can see my thoughts on other movies in my last Recently Watched on Netflix post.
I got an email the other day saying that Netflix is getting rid of reviews due to “declining usage”. That sounds like a poor excuse, but of course usage will decline when they don’t even include the reviews on any of their apps. I personally think that’s stupid because I personally like seeing others’ thoughts on a movie. Sure, there are other sites you can go to for that, but it’s more convenient when it’s right there on the site you’re planning to watch on.
I liked the idea of Netflix having their own original content, but now it seems like that’s all they are focused on. Most of the content they’re putting out are things that I’m not even that interested in watching. As far as the other streaming content they’re offering, it’s pretty lackluster. I want to do this “Recently Watched on Netflix” as a continuous series here in my blog where I do mini-reviews of movies I’ve recently watched. However, the selection on Netflix right now is not that great, so I’m not sure how frequent these posts will be. I did watch a few movies recently, so I figured I would post my thoughts on those.
