Master of None
(2015)

One great and fun journey with many emotions.
Master of None is a Netflix original TV-series that at first glance looks nothing more than your mediocre story with a single guy trying to find his love of his life. After watching through the first season one can absolutely say that it is more than that, it is funny, romantic, and sad. And goes deeper than most romance themed movies and shows.

Master Of None focuses on Dev (Played by Aziz Anzari), an Indian- American who is in his 30's and is still single. In his journey of finding the perfect girl he continuously turn down girls, always trying to find someone better, all this without knowing that the perfect girl is none existing, but only attainable in the right mindset. Every episode spread his journey out, from dating, social life and work life. While the story might not in itself sound original, the message is bigger than what the eye can see. It is not about his journey, but what he discovers while uncovering it. The story is entertaining, but the message is not really noticed before your good in the season. What I feel is important to address is that every episode is special, one episode will make you laugh, while another might give you the chills when it gets heated. However most of the episodes are somewhat more mixed, giving you a "I really want to laugh, but it might be a little inappropriate" Feel.

Dev is definitely a great protagonist. He is the good guy, always fighting to make the perfect choices, but the cast is bigger. I will definitely say that the cast is spot on, every character feel believable, even the parents to Dev (Who is Aziz actual parents). They do however have some less believable moments, but never anything noteworthy. Rachel (played by Noel Well) is definitely one of my favorite character, she is easily likable, which is important after how much time she uses with Dev. The chemistry between Dev and Rachel feels believable, and exciting, making those Cuddly scenes more entertaining and believable than in other shows and movies.

As said earlier, episodes are different and some of them more emotional filled compared to other who will make you laugh more. It is a nice twist compared to other shows who feels the same every time. It is more believable with episodes that are different in themes. Just like life, Sometimes it is fun, sometimes it's not. You can therefore relate a lot to the show.

Overall, Master of None is a stretched out romantic journey that really doesn't tell something new, but something better. The content is cared for, and feels relate able. The Cinematography is great, and sometimes it is just done perfectly. Master Of None is gonna make you laugh at most, but still make you question both yourself, and our society for the better.

Vacation
(2015)

Ridicoulous, stupid, offensive and dreadful..... would watch again!
Despite the movie is a over the top comedy that is ridiculous and sometimes straight out offensive and disgusting, the movie makes you laugh. I haven't laughed like this for a good while, so it does however do its job as a comedy. if you are however looking for a calm comedy that takes itself a little bit serious..... stay away XD It contains offensive jokes, foul language (often from the small ones) over-dramatic scenes with plot twists, scrap that! there is plot twists everywhere, but the movie is for some reason able to keep you entertained as you try to pick up all the popcorn you dropped on the floor after laughing hysterically from a really bad line that just turns even more awkward as the other character replies back. A must watch mess for the ones that needs a good laugh, and bring a friend. It makes the movie 10 time better when a cheap but funny line comes up and both of you can relate XD

Drones
(2013)

Mediocre at many points, highly interesting at others
when i was out to buy movies i stumbled over "drones." What i already can tell is that the DVD cover is far off from the actually content. Don't get all thrilled up for an action packed movie, because this is a REALLY slow paced thriller mainly taking place in a container house filled with drone gear. Drone operator Sue Lawson and Jack Bowles are tasked to kill a high value target, but Sue starts to question the motivation for killing him. Now for the real question, would i recommend this movie for other people. Yes i would. Despite it is mediocre at many points, the Pacing is rather slow at the start and i miss a deeper story of Sue and Jack, but if you look away from simple mistakes the writing is good, and the escalation of the problem is great. This movie is for the one looking for a somewhat quiet movie, and the ones wanting to ask themselves how such a simple job can be so hard.
