What I Watched: January

Amazingly, I actually watched new/old movies last month! Well, an entire franchise so πŸ˜‚ Anyway, let’s go see!



  • Conquest of the Planet of the Apes 4 πŸ’IMDb/Letterboxd
    • Very good! I liked all the interesting analogies that the movies are making. Especially when this was made in America, there was a lot of racial issues. So in these movies there’s a lot of Man vs ape, which is better etc etc. There’s a lot of the lines that can be attributed towards racial issues.
  • Planet of the Apes (1968) 4 🐡 IMDb/Letterboxd
    • I really love with old moves you get that grainy film and the sort of grainy-ness with their voices? Love that.
    • I’ve actually only watched the prequels and the apparently bad 2001 remake πŸ˜† Which I really loved.
    • Quite interesting! Of course I already knew the big plot twist. But I definitely enjoyed getting to that point.
  • No One Gets Out Alive 5 🏬🏒 IMDb/Letterboxd
    • It’s been AGES since I’ve watched a new movie hahaahaa (lie I watched the new Home Alone – absolutely awful?
    • But this was absolutely amazing!!! Definitely a favourite of mine!!
    • I loved how it weaved a story while creating the usual horror elements. Love the main character and how she’s not a typical horror movie protagonist because she just wants to be left alone. I loved it.
    • Shots, jumpscares, all so good!
    • I was, however, annoyed by the climax. Not ending, I liked that, I just felt that the climax didn’t get enough build-up to it.


  • Cats and Dogs 3 πŸˆπŸ• IMDb/Letterboxd
    • APPARENTLY??? there’s a third movie??
    • There was this big surgence of animals being able to talk in action/adventure movies. Underdog, Good Boy etc. I loved Good Boy πŸ˜† Cats and Dogs is just a weird movie.
  • Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore 2 πŸˆπŸ• IMDb/Letterboxd
    • This one is even weirder but also why is nearly always hairless cats as the baddies? And she’s not even a REAL Sphinx, she just fell into a vat of chemical and her fur burnt off!
  • War For the Planet of the Apes 5 🐡 IMDb/Letterboxd
    • This is my favourite out of the prequel Trilogy. It’s so so good! It’s all about war and what comes of it, comes of greed.
    • And the music is so beautiful πŸ₯ΊπŸ₯Ί


  • A Nun’s Curse 2 πŸ”ͺ IMDb/Letterboxd
    • This flip flopped all over the place? I thought it was good until the climax and then it just failed a lot.
    • Also!! This came out in 2019/2020. Why are we still using the r-word? πŸ˜‘
    • The one guy was cute. I liked him. The girl who played Ashley-Kae was decent
    • I don’t like how the movies ends. It’s very weird and doesn’t make much sense.
  • Battle for the Planet of the Apes 3 πŸ’IMDb/Letterboxd
    • I’m sorry the Planet of the apes franchise is all over the place πŸ˜†
    • This was probably alongside Beneath the Planet of Apes movie in terms of it being really bad.
  • Beneath the Planet of the Apes 2 🐡 IMDb/Letterboxd
  • I… This one was so weird. Atomic bomb?? Telepathic humans?? Weird face masks? Just so weird πŸ˜†
  • Blood Fest 3 πŸŽͺ IMDb/Letterboxd
    • It’s… Meh ok. I like that they had all the tropes in there but like everything was still annoying.
    • Like yes you’ve seen all the horror movies so why focus on the trope.
    • Predicted the plot twist a minute before it happened. Uhhh yeah people need therapy pls
  • Monster In My Kas (Monster in my Closet) 4 πŸŒƒ YouTube
    • It’s quite short so it doesn’t have much of a plot.
    • It’s good! I guessed the plot twist.
    • Luckily it had English subs because while I would probably be able to follow all the Afrikaans dialogue, it takes a lot of effort πŸ˜† processing and translating in my mind because I’m not actively using it every day.


  • Elves 4 🌳 IMDb
    • Yes, this is only 6 episodes long but I’m counting it as a win πŸ˜‚
    • And I was meant to finish this over Christmas and… Didn’t but I finished it now!
    • I really liked this! Short (the episodes are half an hour each) but it’s enough to get you into the story and get to know the characters.
    • It’s not that scary. But it’s good.


Well, I’ve started a rewatch of 2 series (well actually I’m rewatching like 5 series) but you know how it goes. I need to get to some newish movies πŸ˜‚ Tell me about what you watched last month!
