I am legitimately freaking out that twitter is about to die and I will lose the only thing keeping me hanging on... This community.
You all mean the world to me. 😭
Here's my LinkTree for what it's worth given I can't understand the new platforms.
I also have accounts on most of the major messaging apps. If we chat a lot, I'm super happy to add you over there too - but I don't want to make things like my telegram/signal/WhatsApp too confusing with lots of people, or I'll be utterly lost. Just dm me? 😘

I am so depressed.
So sick of this care co treating me like less than human.
So sick of their abject ableism they refuse to see.
So sick of my life and health meaning nothing to them.
So sick of them getting good ratings because everyone is afraid/unable to speak the truth.
These are people who choose to frame my complaining they arent allowing me to be CLEAN or to sleep as long as I might be able to, as ungratefulness or rudeness or my just not understanding the position they're in and how hard it is for them. 🙄
It's appalling & clearly ableist.

In Feb, I started the biggest media watch of my life so far - Land Monsters!
Check out the first 🎉 243 🎉 items in my epic watch here! 👇
I'm a little sad my reviews will now be split over 2 accounts but this post'll begin a new thread for a new acc! 👏
I Am Mother is *brilliantly* carried by the all female cast, which I always find enjoyable. Rose Byrne in particular did a great job at bringing "Mother" to life. The carefulness of her acting injected complexity into this intelligence!
I was actually really surprised by this movie, which had much more depth and many more layers than I expected from a Netflix movie.
Was it perfect? Nope. But it was well worth a watch!
This movie is a disappointing, hot fuckin mess. I say that as a lifelong disaster movie addict. It's like they removed every fun element from a standard disaster movie then bulked it out with endless, boring,
complicated subplots & needless characters they didn't make you care for.
Worse, the entire thing was way more complicated & confusing than it needed to be. And omg, it took itself FAR too seriously, especially for such abject nonsense. The cardinal disaster movie rule, broken.
Kicking off my dystopian watch, tonight I'm watching Only (2019). This is a new one on me, and was billed as post-apocalyptic - but was clearly always going to be an apocalypse that would cause deepening dystopia.
A comet passes over earth bringing with it ashfall which infects the female of the species with a virus, killing most & leaving the survivors hiding in quarantine from the men who would wish to take them.
It's pretty dour so far... Particularly in light of current circumstances.

#KittenWatches Wow! It's taken me a long time to get my review written for Cockneys vs Zombies!😬
This movie is utterly wonderful, with brilliant disability rep. The acting & writing are really fantastic! The laughs are constant & big w/ dashings of crip humour.
It brings the heart along with the laughs, action & gore! The ineptness of the younger protagonists vs the care home residents is a brilliant and hilarious contrast!
And oh! There are some hilarious, gory and brilliant kills in this movie, plus a few very satisfying ones!

Yesterday I finally started my Survival genre watch! 🎉
There's a reason this genre is my sweet spot. It feels like my entire life has been one long struggle to survive, in multitudes of ways. I can relate and connect to the struggles of these characters in a way I just can't in
many other genres. It really matters to me as a result.
Annnnnyway, I had a Paramount+ trial so needed to watch what I could now. I have a handful of monster things still to finish up but yep. Here we go!! 👏

#KittenWatches Today I'm unexpectedly starting my Zombie watch, whilst still wrapping up my monster watch!
I have the very great pleasure of starting it out with my friend over at @DisMoviePod, with one of my very most favourite zombie movies! 🎉
