If you can’t handle one more second of election coverage, I’ve got eight things you can watch on Netflix tonight. I feel like Netflix is such a labyrinth of movies and shows, it can be hard to find something to watch! So if you have any suggestions for me, please leave them down below!
These are eight movies/series I’ve seen lately that I thought were good:
The First Monday in May — Behind the scenes of the 2014 Met Gala — China: Through The Looking Glass. I mean, anything with Anna Wintour and fashion and I’m going to watch it.
Amanda Knox — I mean, did you not watch this THE NIGHT it came out like I did?!? This story still fascinates me. Personally I feel like the evidence is obvious and that Amanda didn’t do it, and I just want to smack that Italian investigator for being such an asshole.
Spotlight — This movie about the Catholic church scandal won the Academy Award for best picture and best original screenplay. Definitely worth watching if you haven’t already.
Fittest on Earth — As someone who does CrossFit, I love watching the behind-the-scenes of the professional athletes. In almost any sport, I find their stories, diets, and training schedules fascinating.
Peaky Blinders — This is a show with three seasons, although I’ll warn you, they aren’t filming the 4th season yet and it’s going to be a long wait. It’s about an English street gang, but there’s some romance and drama in there for the ladies.
Somm: Into the Bottle — If you liked the first Somm you’ll like this one too. It’s not quite as dramatic, it’s more about the history of wine, how it’s made and marketed. My husband who doesn’t even like wine thought it was interesting.
Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru — So honestly, I wasn’t really sure what Tony Robbins did for a living besides write books. But now I get it. It’s a super interesting documentary about his mega event he puts on called Date With Destiny. For such a huge guy with that voice, he is just a big caring teddy bear. You want to not like him but you can’t. He’s so genuine and he just is who he is. Can’t hate on him even though I think it’s pretty cheesy, people love it!
Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers: Runnin’ Down a Dream — The history of Tom Petty is FASCINATING! This movie is long, but it’s like half documentary, half concert. It’s amazing. If you like Tom Petty and dramatic musician stories you’ll love this. I have so much more respect for Tom and his vision and where he took music after watching this. He wasn’t afraid to do new things.
