All in all, Through My Window was a darker, sexier take on the teen romance trope and it had a lot of merits. I liked its ending more than the likes of The Kissing Booth, in fact. No cliffhangers — just two young adults secure in their love, being brave and mature about their choices. Its not the classic happy ending but it was the perfect one for Ares and his witch.
Stranger Things truly paid homage to the 80s classics and it was amazing. It was like a mashup of the best hits of Nightmare on Elm Street, the Wishmaster, the Poltergeist, the Exorcist, and even the Evil Dead. It was dark. It was gory. It was suspenseful and you can tell that the storytelling was growing with its audience. The first season had an ET and Stand by Me vibe to it but this season was so brutal. It amped up the horror a thousandfold and banked on everything that was good about the series all along.
Warning: CyberHell is not for those with weak stomachs. It is disgusting. It is vile and it is heartbreaking. Hearing the accounts will mess with your mind and stay with you long after the documentary is done. Having these demons behind bars is not enough justice for the women whose lives they destroyed. The torture that they subjected their victims to would stay with the women for their entire lives and their torturers deserve to suffer the same same, and even worse. I hope that karma gets to everyone who participated in this monstrosity.
I’m just going to come out and say it. Spiral: From the Book of Saw was so ridiculous it was laughable. Whoever thought of casting Samuel L. Jackson as a victim and Chris Rock as a maverick detective should be fired.
The key to liking this drama, actually is to manage your expectations. Expect the ridiculous because it will happen. Expect the cringey scenes because there is a lot. At some point, you may want to question your sanity over your decision to soldier on but once you let your guard down and turn your brain off completely, it won’t be so bad. Once you accept it, it actually grows on you.
All in all, Greed was a good movie. It had a strong cast, good chemistry, excellent cinematography (you could really feel the heat and humidity from across the screen). Kudos to writer director Yam Laranas, who incorporated his signature style of filmmaking to deliver another one of his masterpieces . Enough good girl roles for Nadine, please. I believe these types of materials are where the next chapter of career should be.
I’m sure the cast of Murderville had fun doing this one of a kid show but for all intents and purposes, it seems like one big fat unfunny joke at the expense of the audience. Its annoying, over the top and should not get another season. I’m sorry. I wanted to love it but I don’t. On to the next idea please.
As with every zombie film or series, there are characters whom fans root for but there are some […]
All of Us Are Dead was like School 2020 Meets Train to Busan. It kept up the suspense until the last episode. It was a well executed nail biter that even if it was not the most original of ideas, still made the series entertaining with a lot of close calls, and gore. Great casting for the main and supporting roles, and who could resist shipping a bunch of nice looking kids in the middle of a zombie wasteland? We all have to look forward to something right?
All in all, Our Beloved Summer is a beautiful tale about knowing your worth, recognizing love and dealing with pain, and just knowing that its never to wrong to reach out and ask for help when you need it. It speaks to every one of us, and that is a testament to some excellent writing by Lee Na Eun and directing from Kim Yoon Jin.
