Movie Review – Bright

BrightPoster.jpegMovie Review – Bright

Bright is an Urban Fantasy Action-packed film. “In an alternate present, humans live in uneasy peace with orcs, elves, centaurs, dwarves and other races after they fought for thousands of years. In Los Angeles, veteran LAPD police officer Daryl Ward has been involuntarily partnered with Nick Jakoby, the nation’s first orcish police officer. Jakoby is faced with prejudice by humans for his race, and by orcs for his position as an officer.”1

All of Ward’s world implods when a magic wand is found — one of only three in existance. Trouble is not just anyone can touch one. Only a Bright that’s a special person out of millions.

I wasn’t sure if I’d like the film or not because I read the critiques reviews. However, it was btter than I thought it would be. But it felt like the first chapter of a book and I wanted more.

Stranger Things 2

Image result for stranger things logoStranger Things – Season  2

Hubby and I stayed up late to watch the last two emposides of Stranger Things 2. It had all the greatness of Season 1 and ended with sweet scenes from the main characters but still some unswered questions which I’m sure will open up in the next season.

And just in case you’d like to know, below is the list of Dungeon & Dragon characters and the Stranger Things kids:

El (Eleven) – Mage

Mike – Paladin

Will – Cleric

Dustin’s  – Bard

Lucas  – Ranger

Max – Zoomer (a modifie

The only down thing about this season was a semi-borring emposide where El goes to find her ‘sister’ number 8/Kali. I know why they did this to show El using advice when she fights the Mind Slayer, but I think it would’ve been better to have Hopper help her with this and strengthen their bond rather than toss this girl Kali into the mix only to have her dissapear.

It would’ve also been cool if they’d brought out El learning about her sister toward the end of the season as a teaser for Season 3.

***Spoiler Alert ****

Also, the end with El fighting the Mind Flayer, it just watches her while she seals it up. Sure a few demo-dogs return and Hopper shoots them, but nothing too harrowing outside of that. Why? The creature fought harder all the other times. Is El going to be on it’s list to possess? What havoc could it do then to the town…to the world.

Still, the season kept me up late and looking forward to finding out what happens next.

My rating 4.8 stars out of 5

Review: Stranger Things

Review: Stranger Things – Season 1

Stranger Things logo.pngOkay, while Stranger Things is not a movie, it is a TV show that I had heard about but hadn’t had time to watch until recently. Hubby and I binged watched (as much as you can watch a TV series on Netflix while having two kids).

Each of the empisodes were addictive and I couldn’t wait to see the next one. If you like paranormal, suspense, and thrillers, then you’ll love Stranger Things.

Only downside was the last emposide which left a major plot hole. Especially the last 10 mins of the show. If they had cut everything after Will goes to the bathroom to ‘wash his hands’, it would’ve been better in my opinion.

Still, I’m so excited to watch season 2 now.

How about you? Any TV series you recommend?

My rating 4.7 stars out of 5

Movie Review – Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Movie Review – Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars The Last Jedi.jpg

Characters from Star Wars Episode VII return along with some of the charm and humor.

Rey has traveled to Luke Skywalkers’ recluse island and given him back his lightsaber along with the request to train her and return to the rebellion.

(Side note: Luke’s island is a real location: Skellig Michael in Ireland)

There are plenty of twists in this movie. Although some a lot more predictable than others. However, overall I really enjoyed the film. Some critics have said it’s on par with The Empire Strikes Back, I disagree. I would put the movie under TESB and the original Star Wars movie, but above Return of the Jedi.

Episode IX, the final installment of the sequel trilogy, is scheduled for release on December 20, 2019.[1]
