My September Netflix Faves

Over the past month I've been watching lots of films on Netflix. It's been ages since I've watched a TV show and now that I'm starting work I don't want to start watching something I can't finish for ages.

Love, Rosie - a film adaption of Cecilia Ahern's 'Where Rainbows End', Rosie (Lily Collins; The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) and Alex (Sam Claflin; The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1) have been best friends since the age of six, but as they are approaching university, fate forces them to go their separate ways. Can their relationship survive the years and the miles? And at the back of Rosie’s mind is whether they were meant to be more than just good friends all along. Misunderstandings, circumstances and sheer bad luck have kept them out of each other’s arms, but when presented with the ultimate opportunity, will they gamble everything for the chance to be together at last? When I watched the first part of the film I was very confused and thought it wasn't that great but when I got to the end I really enjoyed it.

Best of Me - I remember seeing the advert for this when it was in the cinema and really wanted to see it. Written by the people who brought us The Noteboo, is about two high school sweethearts who drift apart and are then reunited after 20 years due to a death. Even though both had moved on and made a life for themselves. They both realise after seeing each other that they still love each other. The end is really sad and I cried my eyes out. Such a good film...make sure you have tissues at the ready. 

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol - the Mission Impossible franchise has been going for years and is now on its 5th installment. Ghost Protocol is the 4th film in the series and it has some amazing stunts. I was never really a fan of the previous MI films but after stumbling across this on Netflix I'm completely converted. 

Monsters University - I remember watching Monsters Inc when it came out originally years ago and I loved it. I recently watched Monsters Inc on Netflix so I was so happy when Monsters University was released. This is a prequel to the first film and features Mike and Sulley at university before they became best friends.

There have been plenty of new additions to Netflix this month for the whole family. Whether it's a new Netflix original series or the latest in the Hunger Games collection. Have you watched any of the above films, what did you think?
