Love, Guaranteed (2020)

Movie

After watching Love, Guaranteed and penning its very quick and yet informative review on Letterboxd I decided to dive deeper. Not just because this movie deserves a deeper, more in depth review but because I really wanted to get all my frustration out. Netflix rom-coms seem to be the perfect victims for this need to rant. They are too cheesy and too unaware of the cringe they produce. Or is it exactly what people want?! Is Love, Guaranteed the kind…

365 Days (2020)

Foreign Movie

There comes a time in ones life when they must ask themselves: if life is so shit, why not make it worse? And when that question is raised, the doubt starts to linger. Why not? Why not put yourself through something awful because life’s pretty messed up anyways. Maybe it will help, maybe it will not make things worse. So then you make up your mind and decide to go for it… only to realise that life was never that…

Elite Season 3 & What to Expect Next

Tv-show

When I finished Elite season 3 a while ago I knew I had to write about it. This show snuck up on me and now I just can’t get it out of my head. The (currently) last season of Elite wrapped up everything including the storylines of basically everyone and gave an endgame to the entire main cast. In other words, Elite fans are now struggling for answers — what to expect next?…

Locke & Key (Season 1)

Tv-show

I had this plan where I was going to review movies this weekend and instead I binged the first season of Locke & Key. Then, as luck would have it, I ended up disliking Locke & Key a lot because it frustrated me. Here are my quick thoughts on this supernatural show that should have been epic and instead… it was a complete disappointment.…

Sex Education (Season 2)

Tv-show

Last year, around this time, I fell in love with Sex Education. A quirky UK original Netflix show about teenagers and their sex problems. It was funny, emotional and I definitely rooted for most of the characters. Now that season 2 is out I can safely say that Sex Education is still one of the best shows! Still hilarious, still relevant and still telling diverse stories that are very important. It also brings on screen an unique Romeo and Juliet…

Spinning Out (Season 1)

Tv-show

Before I start my Spinning Out review, here’s a bit of background information. One of my all time favourite romance novels is From Lukov With Love by Mariana Zapata. It tells a story of Jasmine, an ice skater who is suddenly given an opportunity to skate competitively again. The catch, she has to partner up with her enemy, Ivan, and learn to skate in pairs. I love this book and going into Spinning Out I hoped this show would bring…

Thursday Movie Picks Television Edition: Rivalry

Thursday Movie Picks

The moment of accomplishment.. the moment of utter joy is upon me because this is the last Thursday Movie Post of 2019. It’s been an incredible year and well, I’ve made through with flying colours (except that one time I posted on Friday). In all honesty, if it weren’t for this feature I don’t think my blog would have had anything going for it. This was literally the thing that saved my blog in 2019. So I’m very happy to…

Home For Christmas (Season 1)

Tv-show

This year I’ve been super delighted to have stumbled on so many non-English shows. I watch them all in their original language so that means committing myself to subtitles. Home for Christmas was one of the best subtitle-commitments I made this year. This Norwegian show (available on Netflix) is funny, quirky and emotional. And most importantly, for me, Home for Christmas was very close culturally so I felt comforted and as if at home.…

My Favourite Elite Characters

Top 5

In a surprising turn of events, I’m listing my top 5 favourite characters from the Netflix show Elite. It’s surprising because I didn’t think I’d end up liking this show this much after the first season. Then, even though the second season had some problems, I finished Elite on a high. There’s one particular reason I’m now completely hooked on this show but it’s sort of a spoiler (I’m sorry). Oh, and Elite is in Spanish, so you know it’s…

The Society Season 1 Review

The Mostly Bad Things About The Society (Season 1)

Tv-show

I’m not exactly the right person to review The Society because I watched only 80% of the show. Yet I figure it’s enough to tell my opinion about this dystopian-like teen drama that Netflix made. One thing’s for sure, the lukewarm hype around it baffles me to my core. This show is definitely not worth it, even with the tiny amount of diversity it embodies.…
