What I watched: January

I’m going back to posting just one What I watched at the end of the month. I’ve not been watching a lot of movies and I’m getting through series slowly. It makes more sense that way and I don’t have to keep apologising for not posting a mid-month post. Let’s get to the movies and series!

πŸ“šπŸš€πŸ“š

Movies

Rewatches

  • Dr Dolittle 4 πŸΆπŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ
    • I love Eddie Murphy a whole bunch. I remembered the 3rd Dr. Dolittle so really wanted to watch the other two.
    • This is just a really funny movie. There’s a lot of jokes that I definitely only get now and not as a kid watching it. Like sure, I guess vets (even though he doesn’t start out as one) and doctors make a lot of sex jokes (but then again I don’t know any doctors personally πŸ˜‚) but I didn’t think they would put them in a kid’s movie! Probably just for the adults to laugh at at the movies.
    • Look how young Raven-SymonΓ© is!
  • Dr Dolittle 2 3 πŸΆπŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ
    • All I remember of this one is that the bear asks Dolittle love advice and a cabin. That’s it. What I didn’t remember is all the sex jokes πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­ Not totally explicit, but didn’t expect to see it in a kids’ movie πŸ˜‚
    • I do love seeing stuff set in San Francisco 😍 Ever since I saw The Princess Diaries. Even though my knees would hate me for even thinking of those hills.
  • Dr Dolittle 3 4 πŸΆπŸ‘©β€βš•οΈ
    • This is my favourite Dr. Dolittle movie. Even if it is super cringey. Which it is – super super cringey. I find it super cute
    • But it’s being starred 4 and not 5 because unfortunately, it ticks the whole ‘making fat jokes is funny’ box. And I think there was a short bus reference/joke. My mom always complains that there shouldn’t be so much swearing and that movies don’t need swearing, I propose that movies can still be funny even WITHOUT making fatphobic jokes. Imagine that.
  • Freaky Friday 5 πŸŽΈπŸ‘°Β 
    • We started watching NCIS again/never full watched it, just eps here and there and seeing Mark Harmon made me want to see this again.
    • I love seeing Jamie Lee Curtis and I use this gif all the time. And I’m happy to say that this movie is still good and funny!
A middle-aged woman, hands cupping her cheeks says “Oh, I’m like the crypt keeper”
  • The Pacifier 5 🍼
    • Β I loved this movie as a kid and nothing much has changed since, lol. It’s Vin Diesel – so that’s why.
    • Especially because it reminded me that I haven’t watched the Riddick trilogy in a while. And I don’t even remember which of the Fast and Furious movies I stopped at πŸ˜‚
  • Underworld 5 πŸ§›β€β™€οΈ
    • I just love this movie so much!! I’ve probably watched it like 10/20 times, who knows?
    • Also this movie formed a lot of my reasons why I love vampires/prefer vampires over werewolves.
  • Underworld: Rise of the Lycans 5 πŸ§›β€β™€οΈ
    • It’s so funny that prequels are always written AFTER the first or two movies. Like I realise sometimes you don’t know how to carry on with the story, delve in deeper – and you only know what to do once the film’s finished.
    • Also, this movie has a lot of Michael Sheen with long hair so πŸ‘€. No, I haven’t watched Good Omens yet 😭

Must-Watches

  • Love & Coffee 3 β˜•πŸ’‘
    • January must’ve been a special month for me to have watched 2 romance movies and put them here.
    • This was a cute and yes, cringey movie, but good if you want a romantic movie and not really want to think a lot.
  • Runaway Romance 4 πŸ’
    • Yes, I’m actually putting a romance movie under the Must-Watches section. Who am I?
    • It was… Surprisingly super cute. I probably won’t watch it again, but it’s pretty good if you’re looking for a heartfelt movie.

The Rest

  • We Can Be Heroes 2 πŸ¦Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ¦Έβ€β™€οΈ
    • So the thing is – this works as a standalone, and not a sequel of the first movie. I really wanted a continuation of Sharkboy and Lavagirl and nope! 
    • The kids were pretty cute. I was, however, upset that the kid in a wheelchair is a) called Wheels (they didn’t confirm if he gave himself that nickname or not), b) is in the chair, not because he has a disability… But because his legs are too strong for his body… And c) the actor is abled… 
    • Pedro Pascal in glasses is the height of this movie, and the reason why I’ll be watching the sequel/third movie – whatever you want to call it.

Series

  • America’s Next Top Model S1-3
    • YES I’M rewatching it because… I just decided to.
    • So many things are just wrong in this series and all due to Tyra. Sometimes the other judges, but Tyra is definitely the instigator.
  • Camp Cretaceous s2 πŸ¦–πŸ§’
    • I just LOVE THIS SERIES SO SO MUCH because yes, dinosaurs!!! The kids are just THE CUTEST in the world.
    • I want 50 seasons!! Seriously, if you like Jurassic Park in any way, definitely go watch this!

There you have it! Quite late, but still here! I wanted to add my February titles, but then this post actually turned out to be more words, so you can expect What I Watched February to be out soon!
