What’s Up – Week 3: Time for some Movies…

What's Up

Welcome everyone to the next What’s Up! Halfway through the first month of the year and its starting to feel like the destiny of this segment is going to be slightly like a roller coaster ride with a week of progress and a week of what’s in progress. However, I’m pretty happy with this week. Reading went well, movies went relatively already, gaming had some moving forward and TV series had a few wrap-ups as well.

Let’s see what went on last week!

READING

Always and Forever, Lara Jean

  • The End (A Series of Unfortunate Events #13) Review
  • Always and Forever, Lara Jean (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before #3)

Currently reading: The Girl From Everywhere

This week has been great in terms of reading. I finished off the last few percent leftover from the previous week for A Series of Unfortunate Events series and then went ahead to read the third and final book in All The Boys I’ve Loved Before called Always and Forever, Lara Jean. Both are some really good reads.

PLAYING

mortal kombat x

  • Tsioque

Currently playing: Mortal Kombat X

We finished off Tsioque last week and the edit is going to take a little whilr as we did get stuck a few times. However, both the story and the game design itself is pretty entertaining and clever. I am about 3 games behind (counting this one) in game reviews so it will happen soon. However, with the Mortal Kombat 11 reveal last week, we decided to do our next feature review on Mortal Kombat X which I never finished the campaign. It might be short but I am not a skilled fighting game player so it may take longer.

WATCHING

bird box

  • Bird Box
  • American Ultra
  • Dredd (2012)
  • Blade II
  • Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

As for movies, we did pretty well. Blade 2 is for the next Movies and Tea recording while Jumaniji: Welcome to the Jungle was a cheap rental I got during Boxing Day on the Play store. My husband’s been bothering me about watching Dredd so we finally did and it reminded me a lot of The Raid: Redemption but then this came first so he said maybe the latter is inspired by that movie structure. I don’t know but don’t think so. Its just similar. On that note, we are working through all the unwatched films in out movie collection for both my husband and I to break away from Netflix a little. So theres all that to expect. On the Netflix front, I loved Birdbox and will pair it with A Quiet Place for a double feature and finally caught up with American Ultra. I am currently debating a Kristen Stewart roles ranked list at some point so I might watch more of her films. I am starting to think Twilight is her lowpoint and she is better in other roles.

BINGING

my amazing boyfriend

  • My Amazing Boyfriend (2016)
  • Ugly Delicious (Season 1) – rewatch

Currently binging: Who’s the Murderer (Season 4), My Little One (Season 2), Meteor Garden (2018 rewatch), The Singer 2019

TV binges are not moving along fast enough. They are turning out to be the most time consuming segment but I love watching TV series so its staying. I finished rewatching Ugly Delicious and I do have something to bring up in the review which is a question that I have been pondering over this rewatch. I also finished My Amazing Boyfriend, a 2016 Chinese Drama headed for a sequel but retaining the entire cast except the main leads. I will talk about that in the TV binge. However, this is a fun one. It had a lot of funny moments and the chemistry between the leads are pretty good as well. As for the currently watching, I don’t really have anything new that I’m watching. Who’s the Murderer wraps up on Friday so that’s another one to add to the pile of TV binges to work on. 😉

Its been a pretty productive week overall!
Watching movies became a big part of progress however everything moved along pretty well also.
Lots of upcoming reviews to work on. 🙂
