What I Watched in January

Did you catch my 'What I Watched in 2016' posts at the start of January? I listed every single movie I watched last year and that equaled 400!! My aim for this year is 500 movies and at least 300 of those to be new to me, as in I've never seen them before. I've decided to break it down, month by month, to keep on top of what I'm watching - how many movies, how many tv series and how many of them are things I have seen before or not.
For the first time in 2017, this is what I watched last month!

- Miss Potter

I'm pretty happy with those numbers and if I continue this way I will surpass my goal. However, I do have a couple mini trips away planned, crossing off potential movie days during the year. Yes, indeed, I do not just constantly sit in a state of potato on my sofa with square eyes...I leave the house every now and again (not often, but I do).
Despite always sourcing my DVDs as most cost effectively as possible, I'm not in the position to be buying any more for a while and so have to pretty much rely on Netflix for my 'unseen' movie contributions. With that as the case, I would love recommendations! Dang, you must know how difficult it is to settle on what to watch on there!
I'd also love to know the favorite thing you watched in January :)
Until next month, happy viewing.


  1. We're also watching The Series... and enjoying it. Although it's one episode probably twice a week at the moment, so I'm still behind.

    I was going to say, I have watched a film, but I haven't haha. I did re-watch the BBC Sherlock though and might be re-watching it again...

    Apart from that we're just watching Supernatural, Flash and Elementary. No films, just TV.

    1. I wanted to watch it all in one day but it came out the day Dad took ill and I had to look after him.
      I haven't watched any other TV at all this year. Just movies and YouTube!


  2. I was really indifferent to Gravity too! x

    1. I think I went into it expecting something amazing and it was just okay. I don't see the hype. And I LOVE Sandy B!


  3. Wow! Good going!! It all started off so well with all the ❤ 😂.
    This is so bad - the only ones I've seen are Cars & What To Expect When You're Expecting! I've started A series of Unfortunate Events though also 😃 x

    1. Thanks! haha
      Not bad at all! Probably just normal, I just watch way too much. How are you finding it?


  4. Oh I love Miss Potter, it's one of my favourites, and I didn't like The Sweetest Thing either. I watched it at uni with my friends and I just couldn't get along with it, there was just something about it, so it was interesting seeing you weren't keen on it either. I did enjoy The Unfortunate Event Series (thanks to you) how are you finding it so far? - Tasha

    1. I can't believe I had never seen it before! :O I'm just not keen on overly vulgar things with a lot of rudeness so that wasn't a one for me lol.
      I thought it was pretty good! NPH is a great Count and the kids are awesome actors too.
