TTT: First 10 Reviews

Okay, so because I forgot to do this last month…. we’re overlapping. Yay.

But, quick story-time: I’ve been paying for Hulu… since Black Friday 2018. And I’m just now using it.

That is all.

Zombieland – I forgot how funny this movie is??? And the fact that there may or may not be a sequel coming out this year kind of blows my mind????

Us – Okay, I watched this last month and at first, I was on the high of Jordan Peele can do no wrong… but the longer I sit on it… the more I just… It was entertaining, but it wasn’t as good as Get Out. I’m not comapring, but the plot felt looser, with a lot of plot holes popping up and kind of an unsatisfying ending… I still really enjoyed it, though.

Hanna { S01E01 } – I don’t think it counts since I only watched the first episode, but I was not a fan. At all. When I dislike you characters from the get go… I’m not watching eight episodes of that.

also, my sister finished the season and…. yeah -_-

Killing Eve { S01E04 }No, I’m not done with it. I only made it to episode… but I AM A FAAAAAAAAANNNN.

Key and Peele { S01E03 } – I just needed to reminisce.

Snow White with the Red Hair {S02E01} – I am finally getting back into anime and this may be one of my top five romance animes???

  1. Congrats on the job!!! *high five* You are amazing, and I’m sure your co-workers and managers will love you, LaRonda! I can’t wait to hear more about it! 10 books is amazing, and I’m glad to see that many of them are 3 and 4 star reads! I hope you end up liking Caraval when you finish it! I can’t wait for the third book to release this week! 🙂
