Seen Any Good Movies Lately?

I may or may not need someone to pour a bucket of relaxing lavender-scented lotion on me if/when I watch some of the movies on my summer watch list.


First time I tried, I couldn’t make it through the trailer! I read about it in Entertainment Weekly, and apparently when it was screened at some film festivals this year, people left the theater screaming and crying!

It comes out June 8th — the day before my b-day (GEMINI IN THE HOUSE!).

Yup, my movie wish list is already about a mile long because El Hub and I only go every few months, which is probably just as well since I’m the person who has to take a cat nap now in the middle of a movie. It’s happened in every movie we’ve gone to since Connor was born. Put me in a dark room, and BAM! — I’m asleep. 😴

Granted, I don’t think that will happen if we go see Hereditary (don’t you just love Toni Collette?).

It looks scary as FRACK.

I also want to see…

My buddy Suz in the comments mentioned Annihilation the other day, and it looks nice and intense. It stars Natalie Portman, and I see it available on iTunes to rent. I think we’ll watch that this weekend.

And, of course, there’s Crazy Rich Asians

I mostly want to watch it for Constance Wu because I love her in Fresh Off the Boat. She’s hilarious on that show — totally reminds me of my Asian tiger mom in the ’80s and ’90s. Hopefully I can read the book before seeing the film!

How about you? Have you seen any good movies lately? What’s on your watch list?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
