FILM REVIEW:: EUROVISION SONG CONTEST: THE STORY OF FIRE SAGA

What I thought was going to be an absolute joke (and not in the haha-this-is-funny kind), and a film that makes a mockery of a hugely popular and well-loved event, such as the Eurovision Song Contest, ended up being an uplifting, light-hearted, still silly, but ever so heart-warming movie spectacle. I am so glad I picked this one to watch on a gloomy day. It was the right pick up

One Episode In… Peaky Blinders

I’m one episode in Peaky Blinders and I must admit, I’m impressed. I’m not overwhelmed with information, I’m not bored, but I’m not completely sucked in either. But there is a coolness to this show that has me wanting more after the first episode. From just the first episode, and very little to no background knowledge or research into the series, I gathered that this is about some illegal activity

FILM REVIEW: EXTREMELY WICKED, SHOCKINGLY EVIL AND VILE

So I’m one of those people who loves a good serial killer documentary, and jumps on it as soon as it’s released. Ted Bundy has always been fascinating to me, because of the way he carried himself, the way he spoke, and the way he manipulated. I learned a lot watching his story. Apart from personal experience, Bundy was the first serial killer and probably the only serial killer who

One Episode In… When They See Us

I’m one episode in When They See Us, and this is exactly why I didn’t want to start this series. I knew it would make me angry and frustrated. Not because it’s badly put together; it’s barely considered bad. But because the story is told so compellingly that it hits so hard, you have no choice but to become emotionally invested and feel an overwhelming amount of disappointment. Basically the

FILM REVIEW:: EXTRACTION

Not going to lie. I wasn’t expecting much from this Sam Hargrave’s directed and Russo Brothers produced film. I was also worried about Chris Hemsworth being able to do anything else, other than Thor. I was so very much mistaken. This is a heck of a great ‘iso’ movie. Thank you, Netflix. Extraction follows the story of Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth), a fearless man with nothing to lose, as he

One Episode In… The Witcher

I’m one episode in The Witcher and at first, I honestly thought I was going to be so disappointed, but by the end of it, I was excited. Netflix’s The Witcher is said to be based on the books and not the game we’ve grown to love. Though there are plenty of hints of the gaming series, as well. Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) otherwise known as the White Wolf

One Episode In… Jane The Virgin

I’m one episode in Jane The Virgin and boy, that’s one jam-packed first episode. Think of any emotion you can practically feel in one show, I felt it. Think of almost every genre but horror, and this show, from just one episode, it embodies it. Jane The Virgin follows, well, Jane (Gina Rodriguez), who was convinced by her grandmother at a young age to stay pure until basically, she was

FILM REVIEW:: AMERICAN SON

I stumbled across American Son under the ‘trending now’ banner on Netflix, and something made me stop to watch the trailer, when usually I just keep scrolling through. Kerry Washington’s character together with a police officer and her husband are in a room going back and forth about her son and his whereabouts. It’s also evident that this is a race related issue. Washington’s performance alone made me stop and

One Episode In… Chernobyl

I’m one episode in Chernobyl, and I feel like this is going to be a slow burner. Considering I fancy myself a bit of a history buff, and certainly very interested in impactful world events, the disaster in Chernobyl was always one I found fascinating and even a considered must see destination in the future (yes, I know the risks). I’ve never once thought about looking out for movies or

One Episode In… Atypical

I’m one episode in Atypical, and I’m not completely won over, but I have a feeling that this is going to grow on me. Atypical is the story of Sam (Keir Gilchrist), an autistic young man who has an obsession with the Antarctic and is specifically fascinated by penguins. Episode one, and I assume the rest are the same, goes back and forth between Sam’s appointments with his therapist Julia
