Ducktales

I don’t remember watching Ducktales when I was a kid, but living with three Disney-obsessed roommates screaming about David Tennant being Scrooge, I knew that it was on my list. The first episode just recently aired which I linked above and we LOVED it. The theme song is obviously the best part, but I love the animation style, and storyline. It even inspired me to watch some of the older episodes. I’m really excited for this new season to begin.

A Monster Calls 
A Monster Calls

This movie is based off of the graphic novel by Patrick Ness which I read a few years ago and sobbed over. The book is a beautiful story following a young boy living alone with his mother diagnosed with cancer and coming to terms with the eventuality of her death. He is an imaginative boy and at 12:07 everynight, a monster (risen from the Yew tree outside) greets Conor to tell him 3 stories before Conor must tell him his own. The movie follows the book completely from what I can remember. I started crying about halfway through this film and didn’t stop until it was over. The music, animation, and acting was absolutely beautiful and heartwrenching and you MUST watch it.

The Great British Bakeoff 

GBBO

For something a bit more lighthearted, Celine and I have been watching The Great British Bakeoff over the last few months and just recently started Season 3. It’s a hilarious baking competition set in the UK with some super loveable hosts and competitors. I never really enjoyed Food Network or cooking much at all until we started watching this show. The competitiveness between bakers is much more relaxed and everyone is super supportive of each other which makes this show so enjoyable. Every episode you get to see three new bakes and I feel like we’ve learned a lot! We have even made some of recipes from the show! Unfortunately for the newer season we found out they have moved channels and only one of the judges will be returning so we won’t be watching further seasons.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2

Ok y’all, this movie was L.I.T. As everyone else can agree, the soundtrack was amazing again (though I prefer the first), I laughed nearly every scene, and it really had a lot of heart despite all the comedy. We recently rewatched the first one and I actually preferred this one MUCH more than the first. Most likely because we already knew the characters and it was easy to fall back into their lives.

However, I had already read some of the comics of this series so I did know the plot twist, but forgot some of the specifics. I am also 100x more excited for Mission Breakout in California and really excited that Starlord and Baby Groot meet here at Walt Disney World. Groot is the cutest!

The Little Prince

The Little Prince Movie The Little Prince Design

This is what Springboarded the whole April post because I watched the Netflix original movie of this a few months back and was crying by the end of it. Afterwards I knew I wanted to read the book which only took me about 30 minutes. The book and movie are both amazing, gorgeous, heart-wrenching, and inspiring. The animation from the movie is absolutely incredible and if you have a spare 2 hours please allow yourself to watch this movie. It’s also full of amazing quotes like the one above.
