Just for Fun Friday

Just for Fun Friday

Today I’m having a movie marathon!  Hubby is away all day, so I have Netflix all to myself… this means I get to watch all the movies I’ve added to my list, but that hubby wouldn’t particularly like.

Here’s what I watched:

Death comes to Pemberley

I love Pride & Prejudice, so of course I had to watch this.  This little gem, which is a BBC three episode mini series, shows what happens (or one idea of what happens) after Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy have their “happily ever after” moment.

Verdict:  If you like Pride & Prejudice, it’s Worth the watch!

 

 

Sugar Coated

This documentary showcases a Canadian approach to the battle of the bulge.  Included are the works of Gary Taubes, Robert Lustig, Yoni Freedhoff, and Sami Inkinen.

It shows a peek behind the veil of the sugar companies and their tactics which draw an astonishing parallel to those used by the tobacco companies years ago…

Verdict: A Must SEE!

 

 

The True Cost

This humbling documentary follows those affected by “Fast Fashion” and shows that those inexpensive “throw away clothes” do have a higher cost — in the form of sweatshop labor, environmental depletion, and pollution.

Verdict:  It’ll make you think about your own consumerism and who it affects!!! 

 

 

Hush

This low budget thriller was a recommendation from a friend — it’s wonderfully done and keeps you at the edge of your seat!

The story centers around a lone female protagonist put in at an interesting disadvantage…

Verdict:  The ending was the absolute best!!!
