What I’ve Been Watching Lately: Hindsight, Spy, Me Before You & HIMYM

Since my life is all about my baby now, and not that I don’t love the little man, but I could use a little ‘walk’ to another field. Yes, I’d like to talk about what I have been watching lately.

My blog film has been inactive for 6 months perhaps, just after I gave birth but I have been thinking to end it for some time. I must say sometimes I miss ‘judging’ film or TV series. Since I am busy taking care the baby I don’t know when I can watch a movie, but I can have little time to watch TV series.

Here’s the new ones I’ve watched:

Hindsight – TV Series



Becca suddenly travel back in time to the moment she’s about to marry her first husband, Sean. She knows the marriage would fall apart in the future so she ran away the day she should get married. She also quit her job and start a new one. The guy she ended up with still a bit vague. We also know that in the future she will break her friendship with her BFF, Lolly.

This is my new fave TV show, since it goes back to the decade I grew up with, the 90s. I love the cast, the accuracy of 90s feel and Becca’s chemistry with Lolly, and her cute brother. But after a couple of episode, I got annoyed with Becca’s unstable decisions. She’s adorable, but clueless.

Now that I’ve watched the whole first season, I must say this series is still my favorite. It doesn’t need to be over the top like Empire but still got me hooked.

Me Before You (2016) – Movie

Not that I have seen Emilia Clarke before but from Games of Thrones images (haven’t seen the show). Have heard that the movie is good.

The story reminded me of Dying Young and Intouchables. I loved Clarke’s performance and the leading actor who have been in many romantic movies before (forgot his name and too lazy to google). Being bitter and angry surprisingly fits him. Too bad with the ending, it is a bit wrong for me (can’t explain more unless you want spoiler).

Spy (2015)


Have been wanting to see this. It was hilarious and not at all bad with the action scenes. I love that Jason Statham is a clumsy agent in here. Melissa McCarthy and Jude Law surprisingly have a good chemistry. Overall, very entertaining (or I have not been watching good comedy for a while).

How I Met Your Mother – Reruns 

I usually watched Friends reruns at Warner channel, but the new TV cable package we signed doesn’t have it so I watched HIMYM reruns at Star World. 

Here’s the summon: I still love the 1st-6th season, but the rest is a mess. I feel like the writers must be bored or pressurized writing the episodes. Worse, I feel that the they also never been married or planning a wedding before. I apologized for sounding like a douche but they do. 

There’s too many details to point on, but looking at Marshall and Lily’s life after having a kid looks too good to be true (even when they already add their tiredness and bit changes, but it was only on the surface). 

Robin and Barney’s behaviour before the wedding also looked unrealistic. They shouldn’t have time to joke and hanging around with their friends, they should be busy with the day. 

I still haven’t finish watching the reruns but I’m pretty sure I would want to write my own ending.

Fave Scenes : How I Met Your Mother

I remember the first time I saw How I Met Your Mother. I was cynical about it, and I actually didn’t really care when my sis told me it’s the new Friends series. But after a while watching it with my sister, I thought the series have a little more sentimental value. Not just funny, but actually slipped a little wisdom here and there.

I still keep up the latest episode, but it’s not a surprise anymore that the series grew tired. I think it waited too long to tell the stories of how Ted going to meet his wife/the mother of his children. And somehow the jokes and twists are too trained or something, that it felt tasteless. I personally loved season 4, where Ted got left at the altar. But after season 6-7 it just got weirder and lack of surprise. Perhaps also lack of something fresh, even with some guest stars. I sure hope next season they can get a new formula or something. But in the mean time, here’s few of my favorite scenes and quotes from the series :
