I apologize for being AWOL this week—a stomach bug hit our household again, and while Peanut and I have gotten off fairly scot-free, Mr. Fivezero and baby Olive were not so lucky. On the plus side, everyone’s on the mend, and having a fairly braindead week meant the husband and I were able to bingewatch the first season of The Blacklist.
Honestly, there is just so much on my current watchlist! Newer things like Alias Grace, Blue Planet II, The Punisher, and Valerian & the City of a Thousand Planets hang out with stuff from the last few years I never got around to seeing, like Hidden Figures, Sicario, and Intruders S1. And, of course, there’s always stuff I totally missed a while back that have come back onto my radar: About Time, Flight of the Conchords, and MacGruber.
There’s never enough time to see everything I want to! Here’s the piddly amount that I managed in November (with many thanks to my MIL for babysitting so we could get out and watch our most highly anticipated movies of the fall, It and Thor: Ragnarok):
Once again, in September I saw mostly a mix of thriller/horror films and kid-friendly movies. There’s a surprising amount of Stephen King adaptations out recently: The Dark Tower, which I saw in August, and The Mist TV series, which I saw this month, and of course, It.
I’m dying to see It in the cinema, but we’ll have to wait for November. It should still be in cinemas, now that it has become the highest grossing horror movie of all time, after just four weeks. Maybe I’ll have more nail polish swatches up, then, since I probably won’t be able to sleep for a week after watching it.
