Movies I’ve Watched During the Pandemic

To be perfectly honest, I don’t watch a lot of television shows as often as I did when I was a kid because I felt like there’s nothing good to watch anymore. All the cartoons and movies that I loved as a kid — they just didn’t make stuff like that anymore. Well, at least for me.

Of course, last year was different. With the pandemic going on, the quarantines, and the lockdowns, we were all stuck at home because it’s the best way to keep us all safe from the virus. We tried all sorts of things, there was this Dalgona coffee craze that every coffee lover out there tried (which I continuously failed at and gave up all together). In the middle of it all, it got boring and it felt like we’re missing a year of our lives at home, but it’s our best chance of keeping ourselves safe. So what else is there to do? Aside from turning to my books, I also turned to watching movies, series, and anime. It helped me kill time and keep my mind off things, so why not? Continue reading

A Recap on All the TV Series & Movies I Watched Recently

To start with, there are a lot of TV series that I’ve started watching before but didn’t really caught up on because the season breaks are too long that most of the time, I lose interest. Recently, though, I signed up for Netflix’s free-trial and have watched a lot of series. I used to just watch some of the series that I think is interesting online, but the server of the website where I was watching has always been down recently and it frustrated the heck out of me. So I decided to sign up for Netflix and just pay for it after the free-trial. So here they are:

Riverdale (2016- )

It all started with Riverdale. I was just instantly hooked the moment I watched the pilot episode almost two years ago, but as usual, I got tired of waiting for the next episode to be uploaded online. And then, I tried watching it again this year and I just couldn’t get enough. The reason I got so interested in watching this series is because I have always been a big fan of the Archie comics and Riverdale’s dark take on the comics has really piqued my interest.

Stranger Things (2016- )

I didn’t really think I’d like this as much as I do now. My cousin has been so addicted to this series, so I started watching it after I finished the last episode of Riverdale Season 2. I personally loved Dustin because he’s so adorable! I can’t wait for season 3.

Gerald’s Game (2017)

This was a hell of a movie. It messed not only with my mind, but with my emotions. Upon watching the film, all I can think about is, “How much of mess would it cause me if I read the book?” Because I know how Stephen King writes. He’s very talented to the point that he can and he will get in your head.

When We First Met (2018)

All I can say about this movie is that it’s too cute. I love the idea of the film and the twist at the end. The message (for me, at least) is that no matter how much you try to alter things, what’s meant to be will always find its way. So might as well just do your best at everything because you will always end up where you’re supposed to be.
