This month I did a mini MCU re-watch in chronological order but I only watched my favourites and there were some mixed results! ๐Ÿ˜‚
  • Friends Season 9 [04 – 21 August] โญโญโญ – Keeping that controversial opinions going I defintiely ship Joey and Rachel but it definitely would have been weird if they’d paired up all the couples (and I definitely do not ship Ross and Rachel ๐Ÿคฎ)
  • Captain Marvel [21 August] ๐Ÿ” – โญโญโญ.5 – This is such a fun movie!
  • Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 1 [21 Augsut] ๐Ÿ” – โญโญโญ – I’m starting to really notice how violent James Gunn’s movie are. Like, wow. Also, that What…If episode has totally ruined these movies for me. Chadwick Boseman’s Star Lord is just so much better!
  • Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 [21 August] ๐Ÿ” – โญโญโญ.5 – That ending gets to me every time!
  • Ant-Man [22 August] ๐Ÿ” – โญโญโญโญ – Paul Rudd and the rest of the cast are the only reason this movie works!
  • Friends Season 10 [21 – 22 August] โญโญโญ – This was okay but mostly I’m just glad this show is over.
  • Black Panther [23 August] ๐Ÿ” – โญโญโญโญ – A rough third act but this is still one of my favourite MCU movies!

  • The Suicide Squad [26 August] โญ.5 – This movie is what happens when you give people too much power. This is the only movie to ever make me physically sick.
  • Raiders of The Lost Arc [27 August] ๐Ÿ” – โญโญโญ – I recently watched a Cinema Therapy episode on this and it gave me such a bigger appreciation for this movie!
  • Modern Family Season 1 [12 – 27 August] โญโญโญ – I’ve never seen this show before and I needed a new show to slowly binge and I’m really enjoying it so far. I absolutely love Phil and Gloria!
  • Schmigadooon! [28 August] โญโญโญ – Such a fun idea, I lowkey hope we get a season 2 so I can get more Emma Tate content!
  • Twilight [29 August] ๐Ÿ” – โญโญ – I was going to rewatch and review this entire series but, I got to the end of this one and put those plans on hold! ๐Ÿ˜‚

    1. Thank you, I had so much fun putting my stats together and I really like the set up of having them in my wrap ups! I absolutely love The Diviners so I’m going to slowly read the rest of the series and hopefully have it finished before the year is out!

  1. Wait I read Something Is Killing The Children too! Just the first volume so far, I have a review for it up tomorrow. I’ve been steadily watching the MCU movies the last couple of months, I am almost caught up, currently onto Loki and I want to watch all the Spider Movies before No Way Home.

    1. I still have to continue the series too but I’m hoping to read the next volumes either this month or for the next round of Graphicsathon!!
      Yay! What are your top 3 faves so far? I ranked them all on my Letterboxd even though I’m constantly switching them around! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I recently saw Shang-Chi and loved it!

    1. Yeah, I was honestly so surprised! Thank you, I love seeing my stats all laid out in my wrap up! I think September’s wrap up will definitely be shorter but I’ve read and watched some faves which Iโ€™m excited to talk about!
