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

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.

Movie Review – HER

 

Her2013Poster

Yes, I know this is an older movie, but my husband and I watched it a few nights ago.

Her is a 2013 American movie by Spike Jonze. It marks Jonze’s solo screenwriting debut. The film follows Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix), a man who develops a relationship with Samantha (Scarlett Johansson), an intelligent computer operating system¬†personified through a female voice.1

What I liked about this movie:

  • ¬† The depth of the character change of Theodore. He goes from not being about to admit and discuss his feelings to writing a personal letter to his ex.
  • The acting. Both Joaquin (who is on screen) and Scarlett (who is only a voice) give superb performances.
  • Believable enough characters and story that I couldn’t walk away. I had to know what was going to happen.

What I didn’t like:

  • It is not a happily-ever-after story

Overall, it is a deep-thinking, mournful, heart-felt story.

My rating: 3.9 / 5 stars
