I am currently expecting my first baby, which has made me think a lot about how I would like to be as a parent and the type of world my little boy will be growing up in.
Let me start by saying that today’s generation (not as a whole but as a majority) is pretty messed up! The attitude and lack of respect for elders and well anyone or thing makes me angry. One thing that rubs me up the wrong way is when I see these Netflix and chill posts whereby you can’t enjoy a movie without the expectation of intercourse. What happened to a blockbuster and family night in?!
I would love to go out and pick a movie with my siblings and mum on the weekend, grab some popcorn from ASDA, as similar to cinemas today, popcorn is always so expensive in entertainment facilities! But now it’s all online & a few clicks away, I believe this takes away the enjoyment of picking a good movie.
However, there are some really good movies and shows available on such streaming apps as Netflix.
1. Locked up.
This is a documentary show whereby convicts in American prisons and jails are interviewed and daily life is documented. I find this incredibly interesting as I am studying psychology and criminology so the insight is great whilst the show itself is entertaining.
2. Black mirror
I love this show and highly recommend it. A futuristic fictional programme which focuses on advancement of technology in a less positive way. Each episode is different which I like as following shows I find difficult at times due to lack of time or interest. It really is a great show which shines a light on the possibility that technology could bring, negatively, whilst being highly entertaining.
3. American horror story
If you are anything like me you will love a good scary movie, American horror story is a fictional show which follows a different theme/story each season featuring the same actors and actresses with a few special appearances such as lady ga ga!!!
I loveee this show as a few seasons have been genuinely scary. I’m not easily scared! I love that they use the same cast as you see great changes in acting and often disassociate previous characters they play as their acting is great! I can not wait for another season to be released and this show is possibly the main reason I pay a subscription to Netflix.
If I am not watching a good movie or show on my own it will often be with my partner. It is very easy to throw on a movie and lay around together. I think this takes up too much of our quality time together and consumes the majority of our attention. If it was more difficult to put a movie on I think we’d spend more time .. outside the house or actually talking to each other. I’m sure this will all change thought when little man is born but right now I am pretty disappointed with how much of my time I spend watching tv even though there’s some really good movies and shows to be watched! Maybe I ought to allocate time we do watch tv together, it’s just so difficult when he comes home from work shattered and our bedroom is also our front room!
