Three Movies to Watch While You Spin

It’s time to start feathering your fall spinning nest. For me part of that is gathering things I want to watch (or binge) while I spin. I often invite friends over on the weekend and we have a movie afternoon. Spinzilla is coming up and these would be great to keep your wheel flying along. I recently watched all three of these and recommend them highly.




Do you love historical fiction and great costumes? Do you think that reading books can change your life?

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society (on Netflix) will thrill you. It’s based on the book of the same title, but i enjoyed it much more than the book. Tissues might be required.


If dysfunctional families and murder are  more your (poisoned) cup of tea Agatha Christie’s Ordeal By Innocence (Amazon Prime) is so creepy and so good. This is the darkest take on an Agatha Christie I’ve ever watched. The cast, costumes and sets are stunning.


Are you like me and have never outgrown John Hughes movies? To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (Netflix) has high school drama, unrequited crushes, impossibly good looking teens, and a happy ending. This movie is filled frothy goodness.

What have you watched lately that you’d recommend for a spinning afternoon?
