I thought it would be fun to share what I enjoyed watching in January. Just the stuff I enjoyed. Not the stuff I DNF’d.
Live to Lead.
It was one of the first things I watched at the beginning of January. I found it incredibly inspiring. I watched it twice, actually. Gloria Steinem and Ruth Bader Ginsburg are heroes of mine so I enjoyed getting an insight into them.
Beast of Banglaore
One of a number of true crime docs out of India. Troubling cases. It’s always hard to say you ‘enjoyed’ a true crime doc. It feels like the wrong word.
Drain the Oceans
They finally uploaded the latest season to Disney+. It’s one of my spouse’s favourite shows, so we binge-watched it over a weekend.
This movie has been on my watchlist for ages. I don’t know why I never got around to watching it. Well, I do. I go through moods where I stick to non-scripted shows/documentaries, and I don’t watch scripted TV or movies. But I finally saw this in January. It was such a brilliant movie. I LOVE Colin Firth (and a lot of the other actors in it.)
Inside the Heist
A fascinating look at some audacious heists. Highly recommend it if you have Discovery+.
Enola Holmes 2
I’ve watched this about four times now. Enjoyed it as much as I did the first movie, maybe even more because it had more Henry Cavill.
For ages, I’ve wanted to see an in-depth documentary on the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme. This was such a well-done series. It was one of those series that is fascinating but also makes you incredibly angry at the man—and the system that allowed him to get it away with it for so long.
So that’s my shortlist. What have you been watching in the last month?
