6 Netflix Movies and Shows You Have to Watch
I know there are so many posts about this already, but each of them offer something different. Ever since Hubs started working third shift (11pm to 7am) I've been bored at home all evening. So I've turned to Netflix, because everything is closed around here after 10pm. I like the main stream movies and TV shows for sure, but it's when I stumble on a not so well known film or series that turns out to be amazing. So here are my top fave finds on Netflix:
1. Land Girls - 3 Seasons, 15 Episodes
This series is about women who want to contribute to the War Effort, so they sign up for the Land Army in England. Sent to the countryside, they farm the land to provide food and rations to the people of England. I don't know what it is about this time period that intrigues me, but I love it. The story lines are good, and each episode is a full hour.
Oh this movie. At first glance, the synapse didn't catch my eye. After seeing it in my "Suggested for you" section for weeks, I decided to give it a shot. I loved it. It follows a typical Rom-Com plot line, but the twist of the characters in the story make it special.
3. You're Not You
All. The. Feels. Some big names in the movie, I'm not sure how I had never heard of it before. I'm not going to tell you about the story, cause I don't want to spoil it. Just watch it, you won't be sorry.
4. Magic Beyond Words: The J.K. Rowling Story
Who doesn't love a good dramatized biopic of a famous person? Especially if that famous person wrote the BEST book series of our time. All of the references are amazing. AH-MAY-ZING. My fellow Potterheads will totally understand the excitement.
5. Call the Midwife - 3 Seasons, 27 Episodes (Season 4 is currently playing on your local PBS station)
Another World War II era series. It follows a group of nurses and nuns in a run down part of a suburb of London. They tend to the pregnant mothers and then after the new babies. There is love, loss, and laughter in this series.
6. Listen to Your Heart
He wants nothing more than to make music. Then he meets and falls in love with a girl, but she can't hear his music. This one is a tear jerker for sure, so grab the tissues and chocolate ice cream.
Oh, and there are TONS of classics and Disney movies as well. Like How to Marry a Millionaire, Breakfast at Tiffanys, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Jane Eyre, Tarzan, Hercules, and Fox and the Hound.
