#Netflix Kingdom: Korean Series Review

All in all, I would consider Kingdom to be one of Korea’s finest saeguk dramas that can rival the suspense and intensity of HBO’s Game of Thrones. By the first season’s end, it had Battle of Castle Black feels which only fueled one’s desire to see what happens next when the second season opens. Too bad filming will only begin next month and fans will have to wait for another few months before we could binge on another epic season. I for one, could not wait to see if my conspiracy theories are correct. One word for the entire thing — brilliant, even though it ended on a cliffhanger. I could not think of more superlatives for this series. Seriously. … Read More #Netflix Kingdom: Korean Series Review

The Haunting of Hill House: Series Review

All in all, I have no doubt that The Haunting of Hill House has set a new bar for horror franchises for television with this 10-episode series. No cheap thrills for this one, but it gets viewers invested in the characters and makes them care what happens to these unfortunate souls after all they have been through.

Netflix’s Set It Up: Movie Review

All in all, I loved Set It Up because it didn’t take itself too seriously. It set off to tell a simple story and focused on developing rootable characters that people can relate to, and it succeeded. It knew that it was borrowing plots from films like Parent Trap and it even gave a shoutout. Set It Up was funny and interesting and depicted the lives of the people who worked behind the rich and powerful. It showcased their struggles, frustrations and desperation but most importantly, the movie managed to make audiences fall in love within an hour and a half. Kudos to writer Katie Silberman and director Claire Scanlon. Catch Set It Up on Netflix when you can.… Read More Netflix’s Set It Up: Movie Review
