Hello all! So I watched three movies on flights this week, but the one I really want to share is the one below! In college, I was OBSESSED with this YouTube series, and I’m so sad I didn’t know that they made it into a movie (and that it was nominated for an Oscar!) until now. 

If you haven’t seen the short videos, definitely go watch them!

Oh yeh @Liz I remember someone on the VideoAsk team talking about this a while back, I’d never seen it before but looks so cute!

I just watched Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio on one of my flights, anyone seen that? It was really well done, I wasn’t a huge fan of Pinocchio as a kid but I enjoyed this one!

@john.desborough it’ll make you laugh on your flight, that’s for sure!

@Grace I’ve been wanting to watch that! I’m also not a big fan of the original story, but I’ll add it to my list to watch this weekend!

Get ready for a few tears @Liz I definitely got a bit choked up watching it!

Disney receives a lot of airtime when there is a 6-year-old in the home. Encanto, Luca, Turning Red (although since the mother is Chinese, the girl and mom can't watch it together, hehe), and Luca are all fantastic. All of the princess films have been rewatched at least once, and Moana has returned to the rotation (Netflix gave me a letter saying that we have now started that movie 750 times... sigh). 

Netflix's Abominable is also excellent. 

I'll be honest: I want more Mandalorian content. In my opinion, The Wheel of Time on Amazon has been well done if you enjoy science-fiction and fantasy literature and are a fan of Robert Jordan's writing. 

Plenty of food, drink, and music-related documentaries.

Oh wow @brendarobers looks like I picked the wrong day to cancel my Disney+ subscription 😝 We really liked Turning Red in our house, though I haven’t seen any of the other stuff you mentioned (apart from Mandalorian, which I also want more of – I watched Obi Wan but was a tad underwhelmed).


Congrats on getting that letter from Netflix – 750 times is pretty darned impressive (and also a tiny bit scary 🙈) !!!


I’ve been tucking into Close Enough on Netflix this week, which is good for a chuckle (though not a cartoon for a six year-old!)

Thanks for sharing these recommendations!!!

Ahhhh hahaha @john.desborough - I can’t believe neither @Liz nor I twigged that it was a past version of you. Looking back now, the clues were definitely there 😝 I’m guessing you’re a fan of Kind Richard and The Blind Side too. If so, I’m going to have to respectively ask that @brendarobers suggests something original or we’ll be forced to employ a three-strikes and you’re out policy...

What a fantastic initiative to create a space for discussing films and TV series! 🎬 It's always a pleasure to connect with fellow movie enthusiasts. As someone who thoroughly enjoys watching films like My Fault 2023, I'm always on the lookout for thought-provoking and captivating stories on the big screen. 'My Fault had me hooked from start to finish with its brilliant storytelling and exceptional performances.

Ooh thanks for the suggestion @devilar smith I’ve not seen that one. Do you have any other recommendations for Spanish movies? 

I watched the new Little Mermaid on the plane to America recently, it was ok but I wasn’t a big fan of the additional songs haha! 

I also started watching The Flat Share, I previously read the book and enjoyed it, didn’t realise they had made a series out of it! I have no idea how to watch the rest of it in Spain though 😥

And just started the new series of The Great British Bake Off which I always enjoy but inevitably makes me want cake!

Anyone else watched anything good recently (sorry mine are very low brow suggestions there lol)
