November Movie & Documentary Wrap Up

In addition to reading, I love watching documentaries and movies and thought that I would start doing a monthly wrap up post including the movies I have watched that month. I am going to use the same rating system that I do for books which is on a scale of 1-5, 5 meaning I loved it and 1 meaning I didn’t like it at all. Documentaries are hard to rate, so I think I probably won’t rate them. I will bold any titles that I really loved. I will also clarify the topic of the documentary if it isn’t clear from the title and list where I watched it! Although I also love my TV shows, I really like watching documentaries and non-fiction TV; I like history, as well as current events and I enjoy learning, whether it is through reading or film. I also often watch movies I have seen before while I am working and blogging, so I am going to list those under re-watch. So here is my October wrap up for documentaries and movies!

Making a Murderer Season 2 was very interesting, especially if you are interested in forensics. The majority of the season was focused on going over and re-testing all the forensic evidence. One Born Every Second is just a great show, especially for anyone who loved anything birth related. And I found Inside North Korea’s Dynasty, which was a 4 part special, to also be very fascinating. Lincoln was good, just a fairly predictable, slow and steady movie. I could watch Only The Brave over and over, it is such a great story. And with all of the recent wildfires, it was an important movie to watch and feel so grateful to all the firefighters out in California risking their lives to help others.
