Without giving too much away, I loved how the drama ended. It was as good as it was going to get for this type of dark drama. Great performances from the main cast to the supporting characters. Excellent character development and treatment. Engaging story. This was a definite thumbs up for me.
I am sufficiently confused and curious and I have a good mind to watch it when Servant comes out on November 28. I think it has right the right amount of crazy to keep me satisfied. Fingers crossed.
Eli was a solid addition to Netflix’s original horror films. While it was not an entirely original concept to blow audiences’ minds, it knew what it wanted to achieve and did not stray the course with excessive bravado. It just delivered a well executed horror movie that shocked and scared in all the right places. That’s all we can ask for.
Attack on Titan 2 was filled with a lot of information and opened a lot of doors of possibility. At 12 episodes, it must have been torture to wait years for the next installments so I’m glad I already have Season 3 waiting for me. One thing’s for sure, as the story gets deeper, it gets you more hooked to the series than ever.
All in all, Eli Roth managed to sate his penchant for blood and gore with pumpkins that spewed out their crushed insides and a decaying evil wizard who had rotten teeth, although it was not as his usual level of horror. Overall, the CGI was good and the magic was there too that would keep children and adults alike entertained for its 1 hour and 45 minute run. Its a good adaptation of the 1973 book by Jonathan Bellairs but I wouldn’t say that this was my favorite kids’ movie. Still, it was a passable one.
All in all, Forgotten was a dark and sinister tale of two innocents who unwittingly become victims of a cruel twist of fate — two pure hearts who are tested by destiny until their paths once again cross. Forgotten was aptly named, and perfectly executed an elaborate plot that remained consistent from start to finish.
The movie reveals just enough information to keep the audiences engaged and follows up with a lot of scary supernatural moments distributed throughout the movie. The Autopsy of Jane Doe was sufficiently gory, effectively scary and competently executed. It didn’t go overboard but rather built on the film’s strengths brick by brick. By its end, audiences are flabbergasted but in a good way. Definitely not for the faint-hearted, though. Great practical effects too, by the way.
All in all, The CW really pulled all the stops to make Riverdale completely different from what comic book fans expected and it was a gamble that mostly paid off. It generated interest in the new series but also piqued the interest of its new fans to see what the difference with the original material was — and vice versa. Its off to a good start, and by breaking the chains of its connection with its source material, it also liberated itself to tell its story in its own way and the journey promises to be exciting as it is dark. I think though, that its not gonna be for everybody’s taste.
