Instead of including all of my favourite documentaries/films etc into my monthly favourites, I’ve decided to give them their own post – this way I can give better opinions and have a bit of a natter.
THEY WALK AMONG US – although I did previously mention this in one of my favourites, I decided it needed its own place here. I absolutely love this podcast, each episode is 40 minutes long and discusses real UK crime which has happened over the years. Some of them are from the 1970’s yet some of them discuss crimes which happened as late as 2017-18. Some of them are more detailed and explain more information, whereas others are pretty brief. There are so many episodes and are very easy to listen to.
GETTING LIPPY WITH.. IMOGEN – This is a new podcast which came up in my recommendations. I listened to the first episode and loved it, I can’t wait for the rest to air! Its a podcast which deals with venting, chatting and sharing daily struggles. It’s all real life and some of the topics may help you!
GOSSIP GIRL – I think I’m very late on the gossip girl front, but oh my. I can’t believe it took me so long to watch it – I’m currently on season 3 and it really does remind me of Pretty Little Liars, Blair is my favourite and I *wishhhh* I could own every single headband she wears!
THE DISAPPEARANCE OF MADELINE MCCAN – When I heard this was airing on Netflix, I was so excited! I didn’t expect it to be 8 episodes, but I watched all of them in 2 nights! I have very mixed opinions regarding the disappearance, I do believe her parents had some involvement – but what? I’m not so sure! I did really enjoy the documentary and found it very informative but I would have liked to have seen Kate or Gerry in an interview!
DEATH WISH – I don’t often watch films, as I much prefer series etc! But, I did enjoy this film! It has Bruce Willis in which really made it for me – I love how action packed it was and was kept very much in suspense.
BAPTISE – this is a series set in Amsterdam searching for a missing sex worker: I believe it is supposed to be a spin off of ‘The Missing’ which is also on BBC, but I haven’t watched that! Still, I was able to follow the story line and there was plenty of twists and turns which were unexpected.
R-KELLY: SEX, GIRLS + VIDEOTAPES – This was a documentary which explores allegations surrounding the sex life of R&B R Kelly, including accusations of holding women against their will in his home in Atlanta and running a degrading sex cult. In my opinion, it seems evidence was pretty low – and that the girl ‘who was held against her will’ went back to R-Kelly’s home willingly. I suppose its hard to understand whether things like this have really happened until you know the full story.
LINE OF DUTY – I have heard so many people raving about this and I believe a new season has currently just started. I have just finished binge watching Season 1 and its safe to say I love it! I was so ingrosed with all the bits n bobs going on and definitely DID NOT expect the ending of Season 1! I can’t wait to watch the rest and finally be able to talk to people about it! Currently: “don’t tell me, I’ve not watched it yet”!!
LEAVING NEVERLAND: MICHAEL JACKSON AND ME – A documentary following the stories of two young boys who were befriended by Michael Jackson. In all honesty, this documentary made me mad, really mad. I have very strong opinions on whether Michael Jackson did carry out the allegations he was accused of – but as he is dead, I believe its disgusting as he can’t defend himself towards this documentary. It was very insightful, but I’m not sure its something I fully believe.
CHEAT – a four part drama unraveling a story with plenty of twists and turns. Molly Windsor is becoming one of those actresses I feel we need to look out for – she’s amazing and plays really good parts (she also played in Three Girls on Netflix). I loved the story line and I felt it was something different with a good twist!
There are plenty more series/documentaries etc on my list and cannot wait to watch them and report back again, soon!
