Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl
This week’s prompt is all about bingeworthy t.v. series and movies. Even though we don’t have fall here, September-December are rainy months which are just perfect for cuddling up with a good series/movie (sorry books!). This will be a mix of series and movies and I’ll also throw in a couple animes!
An invisible and mysterious force field descends upon a small actual town of Chester’s Mill, Maine, USA, trapping residents inside, cut off from the rest of civilization. The trapped townspeople must discover the secrets and purpose of the “dome” or “sphere” and its origins, while coming to learn more than they ever knew about each other and animals too.
I have watched this a couple years ago and I was so hooked! I have not watched the third season yet but I really enjoyed the first two.
A group of ambitious law students and their brilliant criminal defense professor become involved in a twisted murder plot that promises to change the course of their lives.
I watched the first season twice and I love it even more. I know I need to get on with the rest of the series (no spoilers please although I have been spoiled already, no thanks to the Internet). Is it just me or does anyone else have an urge to study law whenever they watch this???
After the Battle of New York, the world has changed. It now knows not only about the Avengers, but also the powerful menaces that require those superheroes and more to face them. In response, Phil Coulson of the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division assembles an elite covert team to find and deal with these threats wherever they are found. With a world rapidly becoming more bizarre and dangerous than ever before as the supervillains arise, these agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are ready to take them on.
I miss binge watching this series! Some of the Marvel movies fans I know don’t actually know the existence of this series and I just want the whole wide world to know it! I haven’t watched the recent seasons but trust me when I tell you that this series is SO worth your time.
The story of Seita and Satsuko, two young Japanese siblings, living in the declining days of World War II. When an American firebombing separates the two children from their parents, the two siblings must rely completely on one another while they struggle to fight for their survival.
If you still haven’t watched this anime movie then what are you doing with your life? Warning: prepare a lot of tissues by your side.
A retired pop singer turned actress’ sense of reality is shaken when she is stalked by an obsessed fan and seemingly a ghost of her past.
I’m not a hundred percent sure but I think I’ve read somewhere that Black Swan was inspired by Perfect Blue. This is perfect for those stormy nights with its suspenseful vibe.
*Trigger warning: rape
Takaki and Akari are two classmates in elementary school. During their time together they have become close friends. Their relationship is tested when Akari moves to another city because of her parents’ jobs. Both of them struggle to keep their friendship alive, as time and distance slowly pulls them apart. When Takaki finds out that he is moving further away, he decides to visit Akari one last time.
Takao, who is training to become a shoemaker, skipped school and is sketching shoes in a Japanese-style garden. He meets a mysterious woman, Yukino, who is older than him. Then, without arranging the times, the two start to see each other again and again, but only on rainy days.
If you’re feeling kinda sorry with your love life then maybe these two movies could make you feel, IDK, just make you feel a little “something”.
Earth’s future has been riddled by disasters, famines, and droughts. There is only one way to ensure mankind’s survival: Interstellar travel. A newly discovered wormhole in the far reaches of our solar system allows a team of astronauts to go where no man has gone before, a planet that may have the right environment to sustain human life.
I’m surprised that a lot of people still haven’t watched this epic movie. Three hours of my life very well spent.
Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.
If you want to feel sad while listening to good music then I highly suggest watching this movie.
Follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England.
It has been my tradition to watch this movie every Christmas Eve for years now. It’s fun and light and perfect for the holiday season.
Have you watched any of these movies and series? What did you think of them? Care to give me more bingeworthy series and movies?
