Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Sep 26-Oct 2)

trailers

I had a really busy week, but all in all it wasn’t that bad. That’s kind of how I also feel about this week of trailers. They are alright, just nothing too exciting. See for yourself!

Movies

The Space Between Us

I am SO looking forward to this movie! I’ve shown a trailer before, but this one is even cuter. The reaction to the horse cracks me up every time.

Good Kids

It’s silly, but I think it’s not too out there for me to like it.

The Edge of Seventeen (Clip)

The movie is coming out soon. Can you remember how I flailed about this? Just look at this clip and tell me this won’t be an adorable teen film.

Doctor Strange 

Just another strange trailer.

Paterson

I know nothing about poetry, but Adam Driver … I think I might like this.

Fences

It looks intense.

20th Century Women

That looks like quite the cinematography.

King Cobra

I am not even surprised at how weird and effed up this is, because it’s Franco. He does weird shit all the time. (However, I am surprised that Keegan is in this)

Dog Eat Dog

I thought the casting looked interesting, but … nope. Too violent?

The Lennon Report

This is why ambitious journalists scare me a little.

Blue Jay

This looks SO Indie movie chique.

Friends Effing Friends Effing Friends

Well, this was bound to end in disaster, just look at the title.

Personal Shopper

Definitely not my kind of movie, but since Kristen Stewart is ALL the rage again, I thought I’d share it. What’s up with that by the way. I don’t think she’s doing anything different, just taking very different roles now.

TV Shows

Pitch

I know this show is out, but I want more people to watch it. I think it’s my favourite new show of the season in terms of drama, but there still isn’t everything out yet. It’s just that I am shipping Ginny with Mike so hard in my head already, even though I think they mean for him to be her mentor and will probably pair him with her agent.

Younger

IT IS BACK! I am so happy. The season premiere was awesome and gaaaaah! I can’t wait for the next episode.

What are you watching? How are the Fall TV shows treating you? Would you watch any of those movies?

The Raven King is the final installment in the Raven Cycle! You can find my previous reviews for The Raven Boys, The Dream Thieves and Blue Lily, Lily Blue by clicking on the titles!

If you’ve read my previous reviews for the series, you know that I am adamant on not wanting to give away much of anything, which meant they were extremely vague. And I am talking super vague! As a little forewarning, this won’t be much different. There is just something about these books that makes me feel inherently protective of the story and even more so of the characters. Just like Blue, I’ve slowly fallen in love with all the boys and they’ve become MY Raven Boys in the process.

I usually don’t like endings, for obvious reasons, because it means the end. There are stories that I wish could go on forever and I am pretty sure that this is one of the few that actually could (also a reason that I am really, really happy about the companion series from Ronan’s POV coming out in the distant future). So, finales always take me so much longer to read, but I couldn’t pace myself with The Raven King. The stakes have been getting higher and higher for our friends with each book, but this was just pure intensity and despair and what-is-even-happening the entire time, so that I NEEDED to know what happened next. Every time I had to stop reading because of work, but was at a thrilling moment (which was a lot), I seriously cursed that place and adulthood.

However, even though it was a read that gave me all the feels and had me on the edge of my seat, I am not entirely happy about it. I feel like Noah was a character whom I adored, but who was constantly ignored. As far as endings go, I thought that Maggie Stiefvater did well, EXCEPT for Noah again. If I take that aside, the relationships went even further in this one. It had laugh-out-loud moments as well as the ones that made me want to dissolve in tears. The Raven Cycle has such an intricate magical world that just keeps on expanding. The entire series you grow along and learn about the world with the characters. Even though their problems are mostly of the supernatural kind, I felt like so much of it could be applicable for a regular human as well – wanting to belong, being curious, finding your place in this madness!

Fazit: 5/5 stars! Definitely a deserving end of one of my new favourite series!
