YES. NETFLIX BABY. I'm back with another Netflix recommendations and I've got some crackers... We've got quite a mixed bag today, you could call it a pick and mix... We've got maltesers, flying saucers to strawberry laces (wtf am I talking about?). With a few documentaries which make you think to a more feel good, drag queen show for when you're in need of a pick me up.
Don't forget to tell me your faves in the comments!
This is my most recent watch and after reading confusing tweets about this, I had to give it a watch. I honestly have no idea what to think about this documentary. Amanda Knox is basically a woman who was convicted and acquitted twice of murder of her housemate in Italy. It shows real images, videos and interviews of the case and is completely gripping. Usually I have an opinion on if someone committed a crime or not, but this one has you second guessing throughout. Amanda Knox is a completely strange character, she's quite cold and generally odd - which makes the watch even more crazy.
RuPaul's Drag Race
This is such a feel good TV show. I haven't watched it for well over a year but then over a friend's house while eating spaghetti we turned it on and ugh I'm hooked again. RuPaul is an American drag queen and this show features drag queens from across America all taking part in competitions to be the next new drag superstar. Sometimes you'll want to tear your hair out but moments later you'll be crying with laughter.
RuPaul, you are fabulous.
Do I really need to say anything about Stranger Things? It has swept the world and frankly, I'm not surprised. This short series is only eight episodes long and you could probably watch it within a few days. A young boy disappears, and his mum, friends and a strange girl battle forces to get him back. Give me season 2 now! And Barb seriously is bae, even if no one else things it in the actual show.
Who Took Johnny
Another documentary, and this time it looks back on the disappearance of Johnny Gosch. He was taken on his morning paper round and never seen again. It was thought that he was taken for the child sex industry and the doc follows Johnny's mum and her journey to find the truth, which later helps change a few laws in America. This is really well filmed and edited with interviews and weird twists and turns.
P.S. This is literally me, well not literally, but basically me watching any documentary...
A Girl Like Her
If girls are really this horrible, well blow me. This really hit a nerve when I watched this and it's something which should be shown in schools everywhere. It's basically a film of a documentary about bullying, a girl commits suicide and a hidden camera reveal everything that happened. It exposes the 'queen bee' for who she really is and shows the harsh realities of what secondary school can really be like. Definitely worth a watch and you'll probably be a sobbing mess like me.
Ali Wong Baby Cobra
I stumbled upon this when I was doing my friend's nails, it was shellac so obvs we needed some form of entertainment to keep us going. We switched this on and damn, were we happy we did. If you're after a female comedian who is down right dirty, straight talking and laugh out loud funny this is your girl. This stand up show has you hooked from the start, Ali Wong is so sarcastic and isn't afraid of telling you how it is. Plus, she's pregnant and hilarious with it.
