The Kissing Booth and the Sequel (Trailer)
I am cosigning my seal of approval on the sequel because how can you mess this one up? Joey King? Love her. Jacob Elordi? What a deep voice this young man has. This story of how a girl fell in love with her best friend’s older brother despite their list of friendship rules forbidding this budding romance is just a lot of fun! Pure Netflix fun. Here’s to hoping true love conquers all for these young kids who face a couple obstacles here and there.
Miss Americana (Trailer)
Taylor Swift is out here trying to single handedly save 2020. She released this doc earlier this year at Sundance and then on Netflix, but definitely worth revisiting after she dropped her surprise, new album, folklore, last night. Watch her rise to fame and the moments we didn’t see as she hid away from the world while falling in love with actor, Joe Alywn, and writing her sixth album, Reputation. If you were a Taylor hater, I think you might change your mind after peeling back the curtain.
One Direction: This is Us (Trailer)
When I was nineteen I convinced my younger cousins to come see this in the theaters because I didn’t want to be the weird older girl seeing the One Direction movie alone ?? Then the opening credits started and I got goosebumps and started sobbing and screaming, so it was still weird and my ten year old cousins were probably scarred for life. In honor of One Direction’s anniversary do yourself a favor and do more than they did by watching this gem of a documentary. You’ll laugh, and you’ll cry (or maybe that’s just me).
Jumanji: The Next Level (Trailer)
Hard to find a better family movie than this one. Adventure (wild ostrich and mandrill monkey chases), body-swap antics on another level (Danny DeVito as Dwayne Johnson?!) and a crazy fun cast (Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Jack Black, Danny Glover, Awkwafina, and of course Nick Jonas). Don’t let my dad falling asleep trick you to thinking this one isn’t a wild ride. I’m just saying if there was an option to play inside video game right now, I would jump (most likely trip) my way in.
