What To Watch Wednesday #5


Hello Lovelies! Today is the final post in my what to watch Wednesday series but it's been a fun five weeks sharing all of my tv and film recommendations with you. For you today, I have two films and two series - including my all time favourite thing ever, Pride and Prejudice. Enjoy!


PRIDE AND PREJUDICE TV SERIES (327 MINS - 6 EPS)


One thing you may or may not know about me is I'm a massive Austen fan girl, and yes I do kind of want to find my own Mr Darcy... Or just a Colin Firth, because that man is husband goals. For those of you that aren't familiar with Pride and Prejudice, it tells the story of the Bennet family and how their lives are completely changed by the arrival of two eligible bachelors. One of these bachelors is the oh so arrogant Mr Darcy - who Elizabeth Bennet hates from the moment she meets him. This series is perfect for anyone who loves a good romance and Colin Firth is absolutely amazing as Mr Darcy (just prepare yourself for falling in love with a fictional character!). 

THE OFFICE US VERSION (22 MINS PER EP)


It's very rare that I really find a sit-com funny all the way through, but The Office US version is a show that has kept me laughing consistently. The show is set in an office (surprising, right?) for a company that sells paper with a very enthusiastic, unpredictable and always inappropriate boss Michael Scott. It's a remake of the much shorter UK version - which is also great by the way. It has laugh out loud comedy and a cute romance story that is just adorable. Oh and I'm basically in love with Jim, anyone else? 

HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE (119 MINS)


Howl's Moving Castle is a Japanese animation from Studio Ghibli, which is actually adapted from a British book by Diana Wynne Jones. The story follows 18 year old Sophie, who is cursed by The Witch of The Waste into the body of an old woman. The twist to the curse is she's also not allowed to tell anyone what happened to her, so she is forced to accept her life as an old woman. Eventually she ends up becoming the cleaning lady of Howl, a charming wizard notorious for 'eating young girls' hearts' and finds herself immersed in his magical world. The animation is stunning, a mixture of watercolour and animated parts overlapping! It's also a great romance, and adventure! 

THE IMITATION GAME (114 MINS)


The Imitation Game tells the extraordinary true story of Alan Turing (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) who cracked a code that shortened WWII dramatically. It's an emotional roller-coaster,  especially as Alan Turing was a gay man during a time when it was illegal to be. It's well worth a watch and Benedict's acting is absolutely phenomenal.

Thank you for reading lovelies! I really loved doing this series - and I hope you enjoyed it too.

  1. I was thinking about The Imitation Game the other day and suggested it to my husband, he gave me the dull look and asked me if I'm serious. I swear unless there's no huge explosion and dumb lines in the movie, he just refuse to watch it. LOL!

  8. Oh my God I love the Imitation Game! I began watching it pretty late then when ti ended I just had a whirlwind of emotions because it was happy but also what happened with him was so sad and I sat there for a few minuts just like 'Oh my gOD' and then I checked the time and it was around one/two am and I all I wanted to do was discuss this film with someone!x

    1. The Imitation Game is amazing. I remember after watching it made me feel really sad and kind of angry. He was a man who did so much, and probably saved millions of lives but we punished him so harshly :/ Brilliant movie though x
