Netflix Top Ten Picks

Netflix Top Ten Picks

Howdy!! I am a creature of habit, and I enjoy my nightly routine well…nightly. I love to practice American Sign Language before bed, and after peeing several hundred times (#TMI), I like to settle in with a movie on Netflix. To me, Netflix can be hit or miss with their selection but, I’ve got to say, I’ve been thoroughly impressed these past few months. These are my Netflix Top Ten Picks:

  1. The Gift: This is a good one! In fact, I just started rewatching it last night. I am a HUGE Jason Bateman fan and it is so fun seeing him in more serious roles. If you are similar to me in that regard, then definitely give the TV series, Ozark, a try as well.
  2. Veronica: As a horror movie junkie, I had to give this Spanish language film a try. I had seen an article that said that people were turning this film off halfway through because it was so scary. Now, I wouldn’t go that far – but the movie was good. I enjoyed watching it and I’m sure I’ll rewatch it again at some point or another.
  3. The Conjuring: And, speaking of scary movies, this one is one of my favorites! You can’t go wrong with The Conjuring. I’ve seen it several times and there are parts that still get me!
  4. We Need To Talk About Kevin: Tilda Swinton gives me life. This entire cast does, actually. I love this movie. I love this book. And, similarly to Jason Bateman, it sure is fun to see John C. Reilly take on a more serious role.
  5. Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story: And, of course, you can’t mention John C. Reilly without mentioning Walk Hard, as well. This movie is a trip and is perfect for when you need a good laugh. And, can we talk about Jack White’s Cameo as Elvis Presley? Swoon!
  6. It Might Get Loud: And, speaking of Jack White, you can’t not talk about It Might Get Loud. A music documentary featuring Mr. White, Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, and U2’s The Edge – it doesn’t get much better than this. I deeply, deeply enjoy this documentary and, if you like good music, you will too.
  7. The Babadook: I’m not gonna lie, I hated this movie when I saw it for the first time. And, then, I rewatched it and realized that it is just as good as people say it is. The story line and acting is all great and I can definitely see myself watching it again sometime soon.
  8. Goodfellas: This classic got added recently and I am a huge, huge fan. The cast is to die for, the director is sublime, and the soundtrack is banging. 10/10 would watch multiple times.
  9. Beauty & The Beast (French Version): The French version of Beauty & The Beast is absolutely delicious. Everything about it is just lush, gorgeous, storybook heaven and I never get sick of watching it.
  10. Berlin Syndrome: This thriller was just fantastic. I watched it about a week ago and would gladly rewatch it again. It is wonderful to see a film where the captured outsmarts the captor and it will have you rooting for the heroine the entire time.

If you ever feel like you’re endlessly scrolling through Netflix and still can’t find something to watch, just keep my top ten list in mind and you’ll be happily watching a new flick in no time!

Man Crush Monday: Jason Bateman Edition

Man Crush Monday: Jason Bateman Edition

Helloooo everyone and welcome to a new edition of Man Crush Monday – Jason Bateman style! With the perfect dose of dry wit and charm, Mr. Bateman has stolen my heart, which has earned him a coveted spot as this week’s #MCM. Enjoy this clip of my all time favorite scene from Arrested Development and then let’s discuss:

Dear Jason Bateman,

Oh Jason…Jason, Jason, Jason. Usually I like to start these little love letters with an ode to your talent BUT your good looks need to be mentioned ASAP, so let’s get to it. You are SO handsome it’s unreal. You’re handsome in the normal guy with something special way and I just adore it. Hubba hubba, sir. Alright, now that I’ve got that off my chest, we can go on to talk about some of my personal favorite career choices you’ve made. Arrested Development? Hello! I’ll admit, I only recently got into watching this show with my mom/partner in crime – but hey, better late than never. Your trademark Michael Bluth attitude of somewhat bored and indifferent is nothing short of perfect and I love that the nonchalant guy is your signature acting style because you do it so well. I’m a huge fan of your spelling bee gone wrong film, Bad Words. Even with your luscious locks buzzed in that movie, you still manage to look wonderful, which is a difficult thing to do. And of course, this post wouldn’t be complete without talking about everyone’s favorite, Horrible Bosses. I. Love. That. Movie. I hope you know that if you ever worked for me, I would treat you with the utmost dignity and respect, because you deserve it!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!!


^^^ What a guy, what a guy, what a heck of a guy. ❤

So there you have it, this week’s Man Crush Monday: Jason Bateman Edition! Who is everyone’s #MCM this week? What is your favorite creative endeavor by my man crush? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
