Stranger Things 3 TV show review

Stranger Things, one of the few, if not only good show left on Netflix once again does not disappoint… Season three picks up on the following fourth of July after the events of last season. Everything has seemed to calm down in the small town of Hawkins. The kids are growing, dating, working, etc. Things end up going sideways quick though, as always.

Also as always, Stranger Things 3 is split up in to multiple different story lines carried by different characters. Steve, Dustin, and Rose (a new character and very fantastic) are off discovering a secret Russian facility that’s messing about with the upside-down. John and Nancy are investigating a case that ends up being about a monster, or flay. The rest of the kids are also figuring out whats going on with the flay, and how Max’s older brother Billy plays into all of this. Hopper and Joyce are trying to figure out whats going on with her CRAZY magnets!

Lots of aspects of Stranger Things 3 are awesome, and they are the same things great with the past seasons. Relationships, cinematography, crossing genres, nostalgia… But, this is unfortunately the weakest season. Not bad, just not as good. The kids are growing up and although that is inevitable, it does take away a bit of the magic we had at first and create awkward makeout scenes and them kinda being dicks. Hopper seems like hes being flanderized into a meat-head grump-ass. The plots in this season are much more generic horror tropes than in the past and barely involve the upside-down at all.

I don’t want to be a downer for this whole review so I’m going to leave you with a few things I loved this season…

  1. The friendship of Steve and Dustin as great, I love seeing the guy Steve has become and they are real goofy together.
  2. Dacre Montgomery did some of the best acting I have ever seen this season. He better get some kind of reward for that.
  3. The addition of the characters Rose and Alexi were great.

In the end I did sincerely enjoy myself watching this, though it went by too quickly. My wife and I will eagerly wait for the new season. Its basically the only reason we have Netflix now.

Circle movie review

Circle_(2015_film)_cover_art

If you are bored and flipping through Netflix looking for something, anything to watch just to not be bored anymore, than look no further! Circle is a random suspense movie that I stumbled upon with a brilliant premise for a suspense movie on a budget… Circle is about fifty strangers who wake up in a room together in, you guessed it, a giant circle. They soon find out that every couple of minutes one of them dies at random if they don’t choose who dies until only one remains. Really, the concept behind this is very simple and truly elegant for a low-budget suspense movie. The writers had so much on their shoulders and absolutely killed it. Everything about this movie relied on believable yet dramatic dialogue that builds tension. While watching this you are constantly shifty eyed towards character and trying to figure out who is good or bad, guessing who will eventually win and how. As much as I thought this movie would just be something that would hold my attention for a couple of hours, it’s a concept that still has me thinking months after watching it.

Iliza Shlesinger: Elder Millennial stand-up review

poster-iliza-elder-millennial-2018

I had taken a break from stand-up comedy for a while because I hadn’t been finding any of them to be all that funny, not even from some of my favorite comedians. Well, my wife started watching this so I figured, why not? I was pleasantly surprised on her take on things and was laughing my ass off the entire time! Iliza starts off by giving her take on things as a millennial on the very edge of being a millennial. Which as someone who is proud to where the millennial stamp and can also laugh at it, REALLY enjoyed. The rest of her act was her observations on relationships and women in general, which sounds  like it wouldn’t be that interesting for a guy but I would actually urge guys to watch this! It gives some hilarious insights to women, flirting, bars, sex, just a lot. Throughout the special as well there are hashtags of hilarious quotes in her routine, which is absolutely genius because my wife and I are going around saying shit like “Hashtag, Welcome To Fuck-Dome!” In the end it’s a must watch if you are needing a laugh and don’t want to be let down.
