2018 April Favorites

FAVORITES

Hello bookworms!
It’s time for my favorite post of the month… April Favorites!! I watched soooo many movies because I finished my Marvel re-watch and I watched a couple of other movies as well. I also have some TV shows and some music so let’s get into it!

The Shallows
Dunkirk
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Guardians of the Galaxy

Thor: Ragnarok
Black Panther
It
The Big Short
Star Wars: The Last Jedi

AHHH! 20 movies! That’s so crazy!! And yes I watched Thor: Ragnarok AGAIN because it’s seriously my favorite movie of all time. So last month I decided to re-watch all the Marvel films so I can be ready for Avengers: Infinity War (I still haven’t seen it, so no spoilers please) and I finished my re-watch this month. I am hoping to do a post on my rankings of the Marvel movies. I saw Natasha at Tashapolis on YouTube do a video with her rankings of all the Marvel movies and I definitely want to do that too. So be on the lookout for that pretty soon.

I watched The Shallows, Dunkirk, It, The Big Short and Star Wars: The Last Jedi with my parents. I love introducing them to movies that they haven’t seen or heard of. But mainly KYLO REN! (Yes I am a Reylo fan!!) And lastly, I went to the movies finally! I haven’t seen a movie in the theater in a while and I went to see Black Panther. This movie is seriously hyped and doing so well and when my husband saw it, he said he enjoyed it but it didn’t meet his expectations. I, however, LOVED IT! The casting was so well done and the music and cinematography were incredible. I can’t wait for it to be released so I can buy it.

TV Shows
A Series of Unfortunate Events
Haters Back Off!
The Mick

So I didn’t watch a ton of TV shows. I totally forgot about ASOUE season 2 coming out so I binged the first season and then watched season 2. And while I didn’t love it, I thought it was okay. I watched season 1 last year as soon as it was released and I loved it but by the time I started season 2, I was a little annoyed. Don’t get me wrong, I love the books and the story line but it’s just the same thing over and over and I just got sick of it. Haters Back Off! was REALLY annoying to start with but when I started season 2, I started to see the humor in it. If you’re not familiar with Haters Back Off!, it is a comedy series which stars Miranda Sings from YouTube. If you decide to watch it and don’t like it at first, just stick with it and see if it gets better. The Mick is a show that I wanted to watch when I first heard about it, but I forgot about it. I watched both seasons on Hulu and I was hooked!

Music
Artist: Alison Wonderland
Song: Church

Artist: The Weeknd
Song: Pray for Me

Artist: Kendrick Lamar
Song: All the Stars

Artist: Greta Van Fleet
Song: Black Smoke Rising

So much like with Thor: Ragnarok, after watching Black Panther I had to check out the soundtrack. Pray for Me and All the Stars are my favorite songs on the album and I’ve had them on repeat! I discovered Alison Wonderland from watching random snapchat stories and I found her song Church. I gave some of her other songs a listen but didn’t really like them. But Church is definitely a great song! And lastly, my husband loves to send me songs to listen to and that’s how I found out about Black Smoke Rising! I’m totally hooked on this song and this band and their sound! They definitely have a sound that is different and not like most of this era.

Well there you have my April favorites. I hope you find something new to watch or listen to. Let me know some of your favorites for the month of April. Thanks for reading, cya!
