Current Netflix Top Picks #4

I am absolutely loving Netflix at the moment. I do think sometimes it goes a bit quiet and there can be times not much gets added but recently I've been finding loads of brilliant films and TV shows. I've done 3 Netflix posts already, you can find the previous one here, and I've really enjoyed writing them each time, so here's another!
Amanda Knox, Endless Love, To All The Boys I've Loved Before, Like Father and The Hangover

Amanda Knox

I do love a good documentary and if it's crime related, even better. I'm a bit weird, I love anything to do with prisons or unsolved crimes so when I saw the Amanda Knox documentary whilst skipping through last month, I couldn't wait to watch it. As you might have guessed by the name, it's about Amanda Knox, the woman who was twice convicted and later acquitted of the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher. In the documentary we hear from Amanda herself as she tells her version of events aswell as a number of people involved in the investigation and how it all came to be that she, along with Raffaele Sollecito were found guilty before later having all charges dropped. Whilst I'd read and heard quite a lot of about this case, it was really interesting to actually watch people from the police and also journalists give their opinion and actually find out more about what supposedly did happen that night. I was definitely left with mixed feelings by the end of it though. I've personally always thought she was involved and I still do, some of the things in the documentary, to me just didn't make sense, but I'd love to know what you think too if you've also watched this.

Endless Love 

You can't beat a cheesy romantic film can you? When we went to Manchester for almost a week in August, I usually went out and spent some time in the city (usually shopping) whilst George was working and then I'd pop back to the hotel to do a little bit of blogging and unwind. I watched quite a few films that week, and one of them was Endless Love which was one I'd heard about but never found the time to watch before. It's about Jade who is a sheltered yet privileged teen and David who is a working class boy with a troubled past. They quickly fall in love but Jade's father disapproves, so tries to cause as much trouble for them as possible. This only makes them even more determined to be together though, and it actually ended up being a brilliant film. I soon got lost in the story and was willing for Jade and David to work things out and find a way to be together. I definitely recommend it if you're looking for a cute, romance film.

To All The Boys I've Loved Before

There has been so much hype around this film, and I totally get why. I absolutely love it! This was another one we watched in Manchester one evening and I've already watched it a few times since, it was so much better than I was expecting. It's about Lara Jean who finds out her secret love letters that she's wrote to each boy she's loved in the past have been found and sent out. It turns her whole life upside down but there's a happy ending with Peter played by Noah Centineo which made me so happy. I'm so glad I decided to watch this as I think I love it just as much as everybody else now.

Like Father

The Netflix originals have been great recently and Like Father is no exception to that. Kristen Bell plays Rachel who has just been jilted at the alter. After spending the night drinking, she invites her estranged father on her honeymoon cruise with her. Kelsey Grammar as Rachel's dad is brilliant and think him and Kristen Bell were brilliant together. It was such a lovely film and so funny at times, I'd definitely watch it again.

The Hangover 

I am such a huge fan of the Hangover films so I was thrilled when I saw they had all been added at the same time to Netflix. I've been putting them on in the evening and they've just been so much fun to re-watch. I'd not seen them for years but they're just as funny as I remember and the cast are brilliant. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Ken Jeong are never not funny in these films and I'm sure I'll end up re-watching them loads now.
