Netflix Recommendation – Bird Box

Another Netflix film I have watched recently was Bird Box. I had heard a lot of people talking about this film, so I knew it was something I had to watch to see what it was all about. In the film a mysterious force decimates the population, only one thing is for sure – if you see it you die. The survivors have to avoid coming a face to face with the entity. As one of a few survivors in the area a woman and her two children embark on a dangerous journey to a place that potentially can offer sanctuary. They have to complete the trip blindfolded.

The film stars Sandra Bullock who I have loved since the days of Miss congeniality.

From the moment I put this film on I was hooked– although the idea of everyone suddenly dying didn’t seen that realistic to me, I had to forget about that and just embrace the film. The film is intense and very gripping, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It may not necessarily be a film I watch again as I think those type of films are ones that you watch once as once you have seen it you don’t need to watch it again. However, that does not mean I enjoyed it any less and I would recommend it to anybody that loves Thriller films.

Netflix Recommendation – YOU

I recently watched the American thriller series YOU on Netflix and thoroughly enjoyed it. The series follows a bookstore manager who’s crush on an aspiring writer becomes sinister when the writer becomes the managers obsession. The manager uses everything from social media and the internet to become close to the aspiring writer and removes any obstacles in his path.

When I first put this series on, I didn’t know what to expect and wasn’t sure if I would like it but as soon as I started the first episode, I had to continue to watch the rest. It did take a bit of getting use to as you are sort of in the book stores managers head, so you see everything through his eyes. But once I had gotten of that aspect, I really enjoyed this series.

This series is gripping and once it has started it’s hard to put down as you want to see what happens in the end. The show does highlight how much information we give away using social media and how easy it would be for somebody to track us down if they wanted to. So, the one good things about this show is that it does make you more aware on social media.

I would highly recommend this show as I really enjoyed it, I am a fan of American thriller films so if you are too this is definitely the series for you.

TV Recommendations – Killing Eve

A couple of months ago I watched a BBC series called Killing Eve, which I believe is still on iPlayer to catch up with if anyone is interested.

Killing Eve stars Sandra oh and Jodie Comer – I mean I was always going to watch it if Sandra oh was in it as she was my favourite character in Grey’s Anatomy.

The series is based on Eve who is a MI5 Security officer who end up hunting down Villanelle a very talented killer. Eve and Villanelle go head to head and become equally as obsessed with each other as Eve is tasked with hunting done the psychopath assassin.

This series gripped me from the moment I started watching it and I cannot wait for the highly anticipated second series which they have been filming.

Both Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer are incredible actors in this series and I recently found out that Jodie is not fluent in any other languages so all the languages she spoke she had to learn as she went along with the filming of the series.

I would highly recommend this series as it is a great programme to watch. Everybody that I have spoken to about it has also enjoyed this programme.
