Five Amazing Movies I Watched Recently

Hello everyone! It’s Monday, and even though I have a million things to write about–all of them need a big amount of research and I’m sleep deprived, functioning on as much caffeine as is okay for a person who worries constantly–I am gonna write about something non-book related.

I don’t really watch movies, to be honest. But I tried to act like a normal teenager adult for once and watch a few this year. In this post, I’m gonna talk about the most recent movies I’ve watched.


Call Me By Your Name

I watched this movie a long time ago, I guess. I can’t call it “recent” but I really wanted to mention it lol. It’s an adaptation of the 2007 literary fiction of the same name by AndrΓ© Aciman. It’s set in the 1980s and is about a teenager named Elio who falls in love with his father’s student cum research assistant (I have no idea what he was lol), Oliver. I really, really enjoyed the movie. I guess it has to do with my crush on TimothΓ©e Chalamet but…alright.

Beautiful Boy

I was reading Beautiful Boy (the book) in the month of January and I couldn’t finish reading it before I watched the movie. I know that the book has so much more to offer, but I really had to watch the movie! It’s a true story based on the life of the writer Nic Sheff. It focuses on his addiction to meth and other drugs, and his relationship with his family and other people. It was so amazing! If you haven’t watched it, you should definitely give it a try. I have a huge crush on TimothΓ©e Chalamet, as I’ve already stated. So, I had to watch this one too! I didn’t regret it one bit.

Lady Bird

If there’s one movie I wish was a book, it’s Lady Bird. I am so in awe of this movie. I really love coming of age movies, and this one was so amazing it blew me away! It was so relatable, because of the school and family drama, the relationships and angst. It was such an amazing portrayal of the teenage experience. I swear it’s the best.

The Hate U Give

So, I watched the movie before I could read the book, and I totally loved it! I guess most of you know this movie is about a girl whose childhood friend is shot by a police officer because he’s black. To be honest, I had wanted to read the book before watching it, but I watched Everything, Everything and totally fell in love with Amandla Stenberg and had to watch it right then! This movie is so powerful, moving and significant. You should all watch it! Out of all of the movies I’ve mentioned today, my favorite is this one.

Paper Towns

So, I love John Green, as some of you probably know? I love his books, just because they *kinda* started this book reading journey for me. His stories make entertaining movies, and I thought that Paper Towns was interesting too! It’s a story of Quentin who’s crush disappears after leaving clues for him to find her. I really didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I did.


Have you guys watched these movies? Let’s talk about them in the comments below.

          1. Tell me, you might say powerful and it might turn out a movie of Santa Claus and Mrs, Claus throwing gifts down the Chimneys while romancing. That is a powerful And amazing movie, isn’t it?? You are unpredictable what am I to say?
