Weekend Watch:

After a weekend of many visitors in town, I thought I’d take a weekend off for myself. I’m also taking care of some home stuff, which is keeping me closer. It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up on some new Netflix releases including a documentary that I’ve been looking forward to, “Shirkers” and the new series, “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.” Both are quite different, but it’s nice to shake things up a bit.

In my own words, “Shirkers” is a documentary about three young teenagers who set out to make a film back in 1992. They enlist Georges Cardona who is their mentor to help them with it. In the process, he seemingly disappears and essentially ghosts the three of them. He vanishes along with all of the footage. The thrilling part of this documentary is getting to know who he is and the mystery that surrounds him. The best part is seeing three friends with an imagination and creating something from nothing.

On the other hand, “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” – though about the same character – is nothing like “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.” This is no TGIF! The show is produced by the same people who did Riverdale so if that gives you the scaries, this will too. I never watched Kiernan Shipka on “Mad Men,” but it’s refreshing to see her grow into her stardom. She’s a likable character, a woman wise beyond her teenage years who is a feminist and stands up for herself, her friends, and what is right.

Turkish Airlines’ Safety Video Feat. Lego Characters

With Virgin America merging into Alaska Airlines, we had to find another new safety video to love, right? I haven’t actually seen the Lego movie yet, but these characters are adorable. How cute is this entire video? It actually surprises me that more airlines haven’t moved to this format. It certainly does help with being more engaged and paying attention. I just flew United this past week for my trip and don’t remember watching the instructions at all.

Anna Wintour to Stay at Vogue ‘Indefinitely’

Looks like we can finally put to bed the rumors of Anna Wintour leaving ‘Vogue!’ That’s great for us because honestly, did anyone actually want her to leave? As these rumors have been popping up, I imagine that exact same scene that occurred in “The Devil Wears Prada” where Meryl Streep tells Anne about all the people that would leave with her if she were “out at Runway.” Many thought that this upcoming September issue would be Anna’s last, but the rumors have officially been squashed as of this week.

CEO Bob Sauerberg took to the Conde Nast Twitter account yesterday to clear the air:

“To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” Trailer

Even after watching this trailer twice, I still have no idea what this film is about! Regardless, I am excited about another Asian American female lead. Given that the books did quite well, I have hope for the Netflix film and can’t wait to see it! Readers, have you read the book series yet? Also, have you ever written imaginary letters to your crushes?! I have never been caught dead in this situation, but it is the exact scenario that I could see myself falling into. Oh to be young and in love…?

Your Leading Ladies for the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ Reboot

Meet your latest angels: Naomi Scott, Lupita Nyong’o, and Kristen Stewart. The ladies are returning for a reboot slated to be released June 2019. With Elizabeth Banks in the director’s chair – the film is stacked with a powerhouse lineup of women and we can’t wait to see the result. I have to admit – though it’s no secret at all – I’ve never been a fan of Stewart’s acting and she’ll be the one that I will be least impressed by in this film, but I’m willing to keep an open mind. I loved the 2000 version and I hope this one will be just as great!
