What You Need To Watch This Weekend

Saturday, 23 March 2019

With the weather being more than unpredictable at the moment - snow one minute, weather warnings put in place with blustering winds and spells of drizzly rain and sleet, a 'what to watch list' seems more than fitting. Surely it's best to stay out of the cold, and remain warm and dry with a good programme to watch? Not just my thinking I'm sure. Netflix is always a great place to start for a good watch, so here are some of my recent recommendations.

The Sinner
Throughout the snowy period at the beginning of February, I binged watched both seasons of The Sinner and absolutely loved it. I'm not and never have been one for horror films, or most thriller moves if I'm honest, however this psychological thriller scared and intrigued me all at the same time. If you're all for murder mysteries or untangling cases that follow alongside a detective then you'll love The Sinner as much as I did. It's gripping, scary, tragic and horrific, a combination I never thought I would enjoy, but definitely did.

Isn’t It Romantic
Who doesn’t love a bit of Rebel Wilson? This is such a good pick me up, feel good film and I would recommend anyone to watch it if they wanted a good giggle. It follows Rebel Wilson’s character who doesn’t like romance but finds herself hitting her head that somehow transports her into a world that’s all roses, rainbows and love hearts.

Abducted In Plain Sight 
As you can probably tell, Netflix has brought out my inner detective side and made me want to watch and immerse myself in all things serial killers and murder mysteries haha. As weird as this one was to comprehend as well as to watch, it was an interesting one nether the less. It follows the story of a beloved neighbour who obsesses over the youngest daughter of the family and eventually abducts her, twice. There are many other twists which makes the whole story a lot more in depth, and bizarre. SO many memes have been made from this one that will definitely make you chuckle (if you know, you know).

After Life
Ricky Gervais plays a grieving husband, who has just lost his wife to cancer. He HATES the world - a way to put his feelings loosely. Doesn't truly understand his purpose in life anymore, and just makes everyone around him miserable. I didn't quite grasp the premise of the series at first, but the more I watched, the more I wanted to know what happened. Plus, Ricky's character has the cutest pup which makes watching even more worthwhile. It's funny and short - one to pick if you don't fancy getting deeply stuck into hours and hours of on screen action.

The Disappearance of Madeline McCann
Again another criminal case programme.. as you can tell, I've spent most of my time watching this type of video haha. But this case is still ongoing 12 years later. I'm more than sure that most people have heard of this case, and this docuseries puts so many different perspectives into the same case. Why was Madeline's case given so much publicity and community effort in comparison to other missing children cases? That being one point made in the series, amongst many others. It's a very interesting watch!

Scooby Doo
A light-hearted recommendation to end the list, and one that surely most people watched as a child. Netflix have added both films to their site, and they're both great to stick on in the background whilst getting on with chores or to sit down, all cosied up and have a good laugh. Who doesn't love Scooby Doo?

Also, Netflix are making The Kissing Booth part 2!!
