A little award ceremony for those that have contributed to my sanity, as of late.
The one most likely to have you questioning your own mother’s parenting skills, as you realise this is the film that has haunted you for years, and that she allowed you to watch as a child/The one most likely to really drive home the brilliance of Meryl Streep outside of Prada: Death Becomes Her (Movie | Netflix)
The one most likely to mildly amuse, without taking up too much brain power: I Feel Bad About My Neck (Essay Collection | Amazon)
The one most likely to raise multiple red flags, as it centres on a mother whose children have dubbed her a ‘smother,’ in order to showcase how over the top she is. Only, you’re watching and thinking ‘I don’t see a problem here, she is fantastic’: The Goldbergs (TV Show | All 4)
The one most likely to have you dropping 90’s references like they’re hot: Schooled (TV Show | All 4)
The one most likely to result in a sneaky tear, as Jen An has a heart to heart with a birthday clown who, as she points out, ‘could have murdered her’: Mother’s Day (Movie | Netflix)
The one most likely to make you feel bad about craving chicken (especially if the end result after watching it is, in fact, craving chicken): Supersize Me 2: Holy Chicken! (Documentary | Amazon Prime)
The one most likely to hold your interest enough that you don’t find yourself waking in a panic at 3:02am having drifted off for roughly a minute during the 3am feed: The Devil And The Dark Water (Book | Amazon)
