Netflix’s hit show Elite has been on my mind recently and I’m hoping I’m not the only one. This show is a little crazy and a bit all over the place but I love it. I love its characters, its mysteries and the over the top drama that I’m now apparently addicted to. But like with many Netflix shows there’s not a lot of information regarding Elite Season 4 – the upcoming season. So I figured I’d spend some time doing what I do best – scroll through the internet. Here’s what I found and also what I predict will happen in Season 4 of Elite.
Can’t believe it’s already February and I haven’t really reviewed anything. Part of me wanted to kick off 2021 strong and get more into reviews as they are technically my favourite things to write. Starting very late but let’s see how long this momentum will last. First thing I want to review this year is Alice in Borderland. It is the most popular Japanese Original live action title on Netflix. And I’m not gonna beat around the bush – I love Alice in Borderland!
As you can probably tell by the title I’m gathering up ALL the shows I watched in 2020. Not just the full on TV-shows but also miniseries and documentary miniseries as well. There’s going to be A LOT of different things here which is why it’s also divided into two parts. It’s not technically a worst to best list but Part 2 will contain 15 of my favourites. The main idea is just to show you guys that I watched a lot of things last year but I didn’t really write about them. Also it’s a great way to ignore the Best of 2020 lists for a little while longer.
Saw The Babysitter and Killer Queen back to back the other day and figured, oh, what a lovely double feature. Hence the new Double Feature feature I guess. Even though I have pinned sequels together here it won’t be always like this. I was thinking more of a genre match or a mood connection, what ever works in that moment. Anyway, this is two movie reviews in one and I’m gonna start doing these more often. First up: The Babysitter and The Babysitter: Killer Queen.
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 of movie a rom-com addict craves?
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 bad and you just made it a whole lot worse. 365 Days is an awful movie. Step away from 365 Days! Do it now before you make the same mistake I made.
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?
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.
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 adaptation that I need a full version of…. like by yesterday.
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 part of that book on screen for me!
