Sometimes the weekend is all about staying in. Whether you plan on “snuggling” up to watch a good movie, or veg on the couch or bed with a good marathon binge on episodes from your new favorite show, some weekends just call for Netflix.
I’m going through a women rock mood (cause we do). So today I’m recommending a movie and television show that showcase women at the top of their snark game.
Netflix & Chill
Starring: Salma Hayek, Hiroyuki Watanabe
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Snark-tastic
Length: 1hr 32m
Fighting back after four years as a yakuza sex-slave, a woman (Salma Hayek) matches wits and weaponry with a legion of killers who are out to collect the bounty on the heads of her and her family.
Don’t try and look for a plot. For the most part there isn’t much of one, but if you like non-stop action and bad-ass ladies with weapons you will enjoy this movie. The ratings are horrid, but I’m convinced it is because people tried to take the movie seriously. I have no idea why, because for the most-part it is a tongue-in-cheek kind of movie.
Netflix & Binge
Starring: Essie Davis, Nathan Page …
Genre: Suspense, Mystery, Awesome Sauce
Length: 3 Seasons
Our glamorous lady detective, The Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher, swans into early 1929 Melbourne, fighting injustice with her pearl-handled pistol and her dagger-sharp wit.
Binge to the max! The costume design on the show alone was enough to keep me engaged, but the quick one liners and snarky dialogue was earned my devotion for three binge-tastic weekends. This show is fun. It takes place during the early 1930’s in Melbourne, Australia. The shows writers stay true to the era and the casting is excellent. You walk away from each episode with an extra bounce in your step because Phryne (pronounced Fran-nie) Fisher is the type of character that makes you want to put on your boldest outfit and own the world.
Laurel Cremant is an opinionated author and reader of romance with a wicked sense of humor. RNIC was smart (or crazy) to bring her on as a blogger. In 2016 she took over the management of this site and relishes her new title of “Overlord of Awesome”
