Stranger Things
(2016)

What happened to authentic storytelling?
Let me start by saying I didn't have any high expectations for this new season. I knew this season would need to start an entire storyline from scratch and that there would be repetitive elements. So once I watched it, I was saddened to the extreme that my once beloved TV show took such a predictable turn. It's been 2 days since it aired and I still cannot believe what I just watched. This season completely lacked its sense of originality which we all loved from its prior 2 seasons. The plot was a literal copy of the second season ( monster -> closing the gate) with just more "funny" dialogue which was completely unnecessary. It really reduced the show to an over dramatic comedy show. The once great characters were all so unbearable to watch. The only interesting characters were Will, Robin and Dustin this season. So much of the plot was so annoyingly stupid that I couldn't believe the Duffer brothers came up with something like that. They left so many important questions (the Russians) carelessly unanswered just for the sake of progressing the story; which had no real depth. Even as a massive fan I had hoped they would've ended the show at s2 instead of prolonging it. Because clearly they are no longer capable to produce a season that could ever match up to their first. I don't have the slightest clue how they can pull off a S4, part of me doesn't even want to know because of this season's sheer disappointment. Honestly I could go on and on about how many aspects of this season I disliked. But I just can't be asked rn, just needed to vent. I hope this show learns from DARK, a masterpiece of a show which beams with originality and consistent writing. For all these reviewers who say this show is worth 10/10. Go watch DARK and you'll change your mind.

Annabelle Comes Home
(2019)

snooze fest is what this movie is
This is coming from a person who doesn't watch horror movies because I'm scared but also cuz I just don't care for the genre much. But this movie was just a honest waste of time and money in my opinion. The pace of the movie was quite slow during the times it led to the jump scares; which were also very mediocre. The character "Daniella" was unbearable to watch. As well as the ending was so stupidly abrupt. It was comparable to the "when she woke up she realized it was all just a dream" scenario. You would expect the characters involved in this movie to be genuinely traumatized after such an event, but no they all were happy as if nothing happened. Also how are people rating this 10/10, do u have any taste in film? Anyways, Smh I just want my money back lmao.

Dark
(2017)

Season 2 is as much of a masterpiece as the 1st
Insanely good, every episode shocks you in ways you never thought was possible. The constant gripping revelations were so unexpected but tied the story so well together. Exceptional and convincing acting skills by the entire cast and tons of heartfelt scenes between different character dynamics. This show is the perfect epitome of a well thought out show that knows where it's trying to advance it's story. Perhaps one of the best TV shows of our time. Cannot wait for the next season!

Pride
(2014)

Important piece of history
This was such a wholesome film that it left me in tears at the end. It highlights the necessity of coming together by supporting each other as well as loving each other whichever sexual orientation you are. A beautiful movie that serves as a vessel for progression and change still relevant now.

Never Let Me Go
(2010)

Bittersweet
I first watched this film about 4 years ago and I cried throughout the entire movie. Rewatched it again over the years and cried again and again. This movie really pulls on your heartstrings and makes you feel multitudes of emotions from beginning to end. I have never watched a movie so beautifully tragic like this one. It's definitely a film that I'll never forget.

Chernobyl: Vichnaya Pamyat
(2019)
Episode 5, Season 1

Speechless
This last episode quite literally wrecked me to the point where I stayed up the whole night thinking about it. The dialogue in the last few minutes was perfection, I'm going to rewatch it just to write it down. The acting was superb by both Stellan and Jared. When I got into watching this show amidst all the hype I didn't expect myself to be blown away by it. But oh boy was I wrong. This show definitely lives up to it's hype and rating. An actual stunner of a show!

The Rain
(2018)

Not the best but not horrible
Let me start off by saying this is a very flawed tv show. Season 1 was bearable but season 2 really stepped up it's game. However from an overall perspective, this show left more plot holes than it did solve them. A lot of the content in this show didn't make sense. Not just the virus and the cure, but how it didn't affect any of the characters when they were around him or the environment. I couldn't wrap my head around most of this show's logic. But season 2 delivered with better acting and more intense scenes which allowed me to binge watch it. The last episode of season 2 was what earned this show a 7/10 from me. Nevertheless I'm excited to see where they take season 3 if it's renewed.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
(2019)

Justice was done to this EPIC Finale
I can honestly say this was my favorite out of the trilogy! It took a different approach compared to the other 2 and contained lots heartfelt scenes and emotions that resonated with me. The animation was fantastic and the soundtrack was hauntingly beautiful, not straying away from the soundtracks from the first 2 movies. Although a lot might say that the villain in the story and the whole conflict was short. It clearly was about letting go and about freedom which was beautiful. It wasn't trying to introduce a villain for the Sake of progressing the story or neither did the villain want power over everyone which I appreciated, since it wasn't cynical. This movie was well thought out and executed! Beautiful ending that didn't feel cliche at all.

Outlander
(2014)
