Neflix's 'A Series Of Unfortunate Events' Review

Friday the 13th. A perfect day for Netflix to release their new series A Series of Unfortunate Events.

I think I should start this review by saying Netflix's adaptation of Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events was highly anticipated, and I had built myself up to hate it. If you've not seen me rattling on and on about it on social media, I am a huge, and I mean HUGE, fan of A Series of Unfortunate Events. I have read all the books numerous times. I know all the back stories of characters. I can quote a fair amount of the books. I even wrote my dissertation on it for university. So it's safe to say I'm obsessed, right?

I've been let down by screen adaptations of the series before. We all know about that 2004 film starring Jim Carrey and Jude Law (Which was the WORST casting for Lemony Snicket - not sure what they were thinking?) that, in my opinion, was an absolute train wreck of a film. I hated it because it completely erased everything that made the books so magical. And by magical I mean absurdly weird. The film wasn't weird like the books, it was hollywood.

Anyway, I'll save that rant for another post, back to the review of the Netflix offering of A Series of Unfortunate Events from myself, the self-confessed biggest fan.


Classic Films You Need To Watch

If you are a movie geek, there are certain films you know you just have had to have seen. I love films, but I have to confess that I tend to stick to the safety of the genres I know I love. I even go as far as judging the film by it's cover - if I don't like the movie artwork or posters, I'll probably give it a miss.

This is a shame really as I end up missing fantastic films that are seen as classics or a 'must-watch'. My mom even took actions to encourage me to watch some of her favourites by buying me a load of the classic movies from over the years. Have I watched them yet? Of course not (Well, I've watched some just not all of them!).

As a self-confessed geek, I reckon it's about time I changed this and sat down to make time to watch some of the most loved movies of all time. I've been set the challenge to watch the following films featured on this list that I wouldn't normally go for, so here's what I'll be settling down to watch in the near future.


Pink Parcel Subscription Box Review

Having a period sucks. It pretty much makes you a big ball of bloated rage, or an emotional wreck, or a skincare nightmare, or all of the above. I change so drastically over my period I have a tracker app on my phone that notifies me when Mother Nature is about to arrive (I'm not sure if that's really sad I admitted that or?...)

When the team at Pink Parcel, a monthly subscription box for when you're on your period, contacted me asking if I'd like to try out the service in December I was curious to see what would come through my postbox.
