Lockdown Lists: Netflix & Sky!

I have decided that with the extended lockdown and therefore no cinema or many new releases that it is the time to work my way through those lovely lists that we build up. The Netflix queue, all the films I have recorded and downloaded on Sky that I have wanted to watch (Amazon and DVD/Blu-Ray list will be coming soon too).

Anything with a * next to it I have seen before but haven’t reviewed. As you can see I have so many films that I have at some point thought I wanted to watch. Since doing these lists yesterday morning I have crossed off The Philadelphia Story (it was recorded in August 2017) and Training Day.

If you have any films you think I should watch first and bump to essential viewing in the next view days please let me know!

Considering my love for film and the theatre this really was the perfect watch for myself. Brilliant to see four women who have achieved so much given the opportunity to get together all now over eighty years old!
