THE LITTLE DEATH: “Take a peek behind the curtain and see what really goes on in other people’s bedrooms, in this shockingly and surprisingly romantic look at five suburban couples as they explore a range of sexual proclivities. Some fetishes are run-of-the-mill, while others are hilariously obscure in this big-hearted comedy about expressing desires, and facing the repercussions once shared.” I really enjoyed this quirky film. It was original, funny, edgy, and it lingers. It’s very fresh. Loved it.
SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE: A modern day When Harry Met Sally, for sure. I LOVED this Romantic Comedy! If you see one movie this year, make it this one! Ya, know. If you’re a die-hard lover of romantic comedies. LOVE!!
PAPER TOWNS: A coming of age film, Paper Towns reminded me of Stand By Me. It’s funny and sweet, reminded me a bit of Garden State.
YOUTH: The cinematography alone is luscious, it’s like watching poetry, if you’re someone who likes poetry. Youth is in pieces, an odd collage. If you like photography, oddly, this is a film to see, though it’s not about photography at all. It’s just beautiful to look at. It’s quirky and alluring, and you can’t wait to see how it will all come together. GORGEOUS movie. And Jane Fonda makes a quick but memorable appearance.
JANE THE VIRGIN: It reminds me in tone of Ugly Betty. I enjoyed the pilot and a few other episodes, though now, I mostly keep it rolling in the background.
MAKING A MURDERER: Phil is obsessed with this story, to the point where, now, weeks after we binged our way through this documentary series, Phil listens to podcasts, actively searching for current news on this story. This is a disturbing documentary that makes you very suspicious of our judicial system.
SAVE THE DATE:”Sarah begins to confront her shortcomings after she rejects her boyfriend’s hasty proposal and soon finds herself in a rebound romance. Meanwhile, her sister Beth is immersed in the details of her wedding.” I didn’t 100% love this one, but if you’re hard up for something new, it’s worthy of a go.
THIS FRIDAY, FullerHouse drops on Netflix. This is a total aside, but I had to include it in this post, because hey, the kids deserve a little somethin’ somethin’. I cried when I watched the trailer. But, as my kids say, “What don’t you cry at, Mama?”
