What I Watched: June 2018

June was the best month of the year so far for me, movie-wise. After having finished watching the series, The Mysteries of Laura, I was a bit undecided about what show to start next so I ended up watching a load of movies instead. This month's lot is a very mixed bag. I've watched rom-coms, dramas, sci-fi/fantasy stuff and a lot of movies featuring dinosaurs! 

What I Watched: June 2018

The Prince and Me | I watched this movie years ago and had forgot about it for a long time, so I rummaged it out of my dvd collection and rewatched it. It's a really good movie, sort of cheesy and you know what's happening in it, but it's real good.

Shanghai Noon / Shanghai Knights | I've seen these on and off throughout the years but never from the beginning. They're typical Jackie Chan movies with the karate movies etc, but Owen Wilson does a good job of breaking it up.

Legally Blonde 1 & 2 | I've always loved these movies so when I read that Legally Blonde 3 was being made obviously, I needed to rewatch the first ones. They're so good.

White Chicks | I made Alex watch this with me because a) it's really funny and b) Terry Crews is in it, that's all. I still find it fucking hilarious., Alex not so much.

Spaceballs | Alex's choice of movie. It wasn't really my cup of tea what with the Star Wars parody and space stuff, but some of it was funny.

The Tuxedo | Although JC movies are all similar, this one has Jennifer Love Hewitt and I adore her. The movie....well, it's about a magic tuxedo what do you expect?

Repossessed |  Alex and I are slowly going through Leslie Nielson's movies and this was one we hadn't seen before. It was a spoof of The Exorcist so it was a bit silly, but also funny if you don't overthink it.

District 9 | This was another one of Al's picks. It wasn't what I expected at all and it took me a while to really get into it but it was very good. Sequel needed!

Without A Paddle | The three actors in this just make it the perfect Sunday night comedy film. I've always had a soft spot for this movie, it's not a blockbuster or anything but it's funny.

Jurassic Park 1 / 2 / 3 | I finally watched all of these movies after all these years and I really loved the first one but the other two seemed a little bit like they were milking it too much.

Jurassic World / Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom | I really like these films. They're not as good as the original, but Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are amazing together. I nearly cried at the newest one.

10 Things I Hate About You | I've always loved this film, it's always been one of my favourites so I watch it from time to time. 

Penelope | The story of this movie is a bit silly, but I think it has a really good message behind it. Feel good factor: 10/10.

Sully | This wasn't that much of an exciting film but with it being based on a true story it was an interesting watch. Plus it's got Tom Hanks, so you know it's gonna be good.

Your Highness | I wanted to watch this for years after seeing the trailer for it, but as with most things, the build-up to it was wasted. It was such a stupid film, I'm glad I got it out the way.

Turner and Hooch | I watched this a lot as a kid but I couldn't really remember it, so I finally give it a rewatch and loved it all over again.

Have you watched any decent movies lately?
