November: What I Read/Watched This Month

2 comments

Anime:

I watched B: The Beginning, a Netflix original anime, which I’m planning on writing a separate post about it. Without giving too much away, it’s interesting but a bit confusing to follow.

I also started Komi Can’t Communicate and got interested in it because I saw the animations (like above) where Komi looks so cute and comedic! I’ll probably try to write a post on it as well.

I also saw My Hero Academia: World Heros’ Mission in the cinema and thoroughly enjoyed it and hope MHA uses more scenes like where Deku chases Rody and Deku and Rody attempt to escape on a bridge, although I do think it’s the weakest out of the MHA movies.

Manga:

I’ve been reading Black Torch and really like the main characters! I love the art style and the story so far is interesting.

Kaguya-sama: Love is War is also a manga that I’ve been reading and I like it! I wasn’t interested in it when I first saw people talking about it and I’m not a big romance buff, but I like the aspect of how this is more ‘psychological war-fare’ with very comedic characters!

Obviously, I’ve also been reading My Hero Academia.

Books:

I’ve been trying to get back into reading so I’ve been reading CSI Told You Lies – a look at the Australian forensics landscape and a topic I’m interested in.

I also found the book Musings from The Moon at a artisan market I went to with my boyfriend and it had the cutest illustrations so I decided to get it (although I don’t actually really like poetry…).

Movies:

My boyfriend and I saw The Last Duel and enjoyed it. It was an interesting story and well made, and Alex Lawther (I don’t know why) is just always entertaining in whatever scenes he’s in.

Eternals is a movie that also just needs it’s own post… I’ve seen a lot of hate for it online but I actually thought it was fun to watch.

The Last Night in Soho was so pretty. I loved the lighting and costume, hair, and make-up designs!

Venom: Let There Be Carnage was a really fun watch and it was great to see Eddie and Venom’s interactions – their dialogue was hilarious.

Red Notice was another fun, light-hearted watch with Ryan Reynold’s usual funny self being paired with the Rock and Gal Gadot’s fun roles, and lovely sets, props, and outfits.

After we watched The Last Night in Soho my boyfriend said that he wasn’t surprised I enjoyed it since I seem to like Edgar Wright’s movies. I was super confused when he said this because I couldn’t remember a film I watched from Wright. My boyfriend said we watched Hot Fuzz last year from the Cornetto Trilogy but I couldn’t recall anything about it. So, we watched Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead and The World’s End and they had a good pace for some chill, relaxing time.

Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham is the second Bollywood movie I’ve seen (with 3 Idiots being the first). The plan is that my boyfriend and I will progressively make our way through his favourites times while I enjoy the editing and dance choreography.

The Woman in the Window I’m assuming offers a lot more in its book form than in this film adaption, although obviously the acting is fine.

Love Hard definitely didn’t have characters who were very likeable or much ‘love’ to root for to be honest. However, I did like the male lead’s mum, dad, grandma and the female lead’s best friend.

Re-Watches:

I don’t know why but I’ve been re-watching parts of Brooklyn-99 and it’s still just as funny as I remembered, and I managed to finally finish season 7 and 8!

To no-one’s surprise, I also have been re-watching Daria – for which I probably watch 2 episodes a week of despite having seen he whole series about 6 times.

My boyfriend and I have also progressively over the past few months have been watching Kuroko’s Basketball, but I keep re-watching the episodes and parts with Murasakibara because I am heavily emotionally attached to him.
