So bare with me…I have a couple posts on this subject. I’ll put a full list of books read, and movies watched at the end of each post. Sadly, I just don’t have enough music to write a whole list about, and I’ll just fit that in on this post. As I’ve gotten older I’m more picky about my music, and the artists that I like. I would not call myself a Swifty, but Taylor is on the top of my list of favorite Artist. I have seen her twice in concert so that says a lot.
These posts tend to be my favorite because I look back on things I loved, so I guess let’s begin!
I kept track of every movie, and TV show I watched. This includes live television, Netflix, Redbox, dvd/blurays that I own, and movies I saw in the theater.
This year I did the unthinkable, well in my case it was the unthinkable, I let my husband talk me into getting rid of cable. So basically I had to par down all of my shows and decide on what I really could not miss. I put the full list at the bottom, but I really loved iZombie, Outlander and Once Upon a Time the most. I gave up on a lot of shows this year, some of which made me a little sad. I just didn’t have interest in them anymore, this includes Vampire Diaries, Bones and Grey’s Anatomy. The truth is though with the last two I have given them up before, and I return to them later on. I still love The Middle and Last Man Standing as my half hour comedies. They are just the medicine I need.
I will never give up on Supernatural. I have been a fan of this show since season one, and I own all of the DVDs for it. I love my boys the Winchesteres, and will continue on with this show until the end
I rewatched some of The X-Files and Friends, although I have rewatched those several time over. Netflix wise my favorite show was The Unreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I am currently addicted to Breaking Bad, and I just about finished season 3. I can only watch that at night though after my son goes to bed. I also started Making a Murderer, but since I didn’t finish it I will put that on my 2016 list.
I really had no interest in watching American Horror Story: Coven, but I ended up watching it on Netflix. Ironically this is my favorite season of American Horror Story. So there’s that.
The show I’m most looking forward to in 2016 is the new episodes of The X-Files. I wish I could watch them with my father, but I will watch them in his memory.
Uh movie wise…I did a lot of rewatching of my favorite movies this year. I was in search for a lot of comfort because of everything I was going through. I also watched a lot of my favorite childhood movies because Jamjam was showing an interest in them.
New movies to me wise my favorites were Big Hero 6, Furious 7 (I cried during the whole Paul Walker memorial thing), Pitch Perfect 2, If I Stay, Jurassic World, Inside Out, All the Curious George movies, Age of Adaline, Vacation (2015),Home, and Mockingjay Part 2.
Home was a really pleasant surprise because I didn’t care to see it at all. My son LOVES it. I think it’s mostly the music that he loves, but I don’t mind watching it over and over again. There are so many awesome one liners in this movie like “Can I come into the out now?”, or “Don’t shush a shushing”.
Music wise of course I loved Taylor Swift’s 1989 from 2014 and into 2015, and I saw her 1989 tour with my Husband. I kind of made him go see her. I LOVE HER! I am not ashamed of this. I wish I could meet her. I will see her again in concert. Other albumes I liked were Carrie Underwood’s Storyteller album, Adele’s 25 album, Halsey’s Badlands album (she really reminds me of Lorde and Lana Del Rey both of which I like), and the Home the soundtrack. I also got Hilary Duff’s new album, and I’ve been a fan of her for years. Years like her Lizzie Mcguire era, and I even saw her in concert when she was doing small venues. The album is called Breathe In. Breathe Out. In general I think Hilary is an amazing person, and super genuine.
I also saw Garth Brooks in concert this year with my best friend, which was AMAZING. It was a 10:30 show, and I really just wanted to fall in to bed. It was worth it though, and I’m glad I got to share that experience with my best friend. (Side note Trisha Yearwood was also there)
Just singles that I loved were: Ex’s and Oh’s -Elle King, Ghost – Ellie Henderson, All of Me – John Legend, Gods and Monsters – Lana Del Rey, The Funeral – Band of Horses, Fight Song – Rachel Platten, Elastic Heart – Sia, Say Something – A Great Big World featuring Christina Aguilera, and Lets Not Be Alone Tonight – R5.
Alright that’s the list for now. I’ll do a separate list of books that I read later! Below is the full list of movies and television I watched, and gave up on.
