My husband left me out of the blue and my heart is hellishly broken and I am trying desperately to make the hours pass until it hurts less. I am looking for recommendations for tv or movies. I can't do too much violence or suspense or romance. I like sci-fi and fantasy, I like nature, quirky things and strong women. I watched a bunch of Elementary until it all seemed the same, then I watched Blindspot but I'm all caught up, then I watched The Lost Room and then rewatched Firefly for the umpteenth time, and Lucy, then some of Misfits. I read Ms. Marvel, I listened to the podcasts The Message and a bunch of The Black Tapes. I have Eat Pray Love cued up and then Howl's Moving Castle. I don't know if this is enough info to go on, but I need to get through the minutes and thought I'd ask. Maybe I'll watch the first season of Veronica Mars again. Help?
I love cult movies about dumb teenage boys having adventures, possibly in the 1950s/1960s and possibly in a 1980s/1990s production. Like Stand by Me, The Sandlot, and The Outsiders, or Lost Boys and Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. What other movies would I love? [more inside]
If I like(d) The Babadook, Confessions, Under the Skin, Gone Girl, and Welcome to Night Vale, what should I read/watch/listen to next? [more inside]

I'd like to get some good mystery movie recommendations from the 80s on. It's OK if they veer toward the thriller, like Michael Clayton, ridiculous like Ford Fairlaine, noirish like Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, or are a more standard outing with a strong, interesting, well developed detective lead like Zero Effect. Drawing room mysteries totally A-OK too. Super bonus points if I can stream them now on Hulu plus or Netflix.
I like movies that mostly reflect reality (er...let's say enhanced reality) but have a pop of wtf-was-that. Like the square that Mia draws in Pulp Fiction. [more inside]
Jiro Dreams of Sushi is one of the most beautiful, mesmerizing films I've ever seen, can recommend others like it? [more inside]

I watched Incident at Loch Ness recently and it reminded me how much I enjoy watching actors pretending to be actors and directors, so now I'm looking for more. [more inside]
