12/12/20 Movies to Checkout this Weekend
Updated: Jan 2
Sometimes watching a good movie is just what the doctor ordered if you want to take a break from reading. I'm personally subscribed to Britbox, Acorn, Amazon Prime, and Netflix.
I find that I enjoy British detective shows like Midsomer Murders, Poirot, Miss Marple, you know some of the foundation shows of murder mysteries. I'll from time to time recommend some of those classic shows or even certain episodes from them and talk more in depth about them like a total fan-girl. But for now here are some totally random mystery/suspense movies I'm going to check out this weekend in hopes of of finding a diamond in the rough.
