It’s been a busy, busy week for me, so I haven’t found the time to spend much time on the blog or watching anything. This is going to be a very brief recap of shows and movies!
FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS
I don’t think I finished anything this week!? I’m now up to date with Campaign 3 of Critical Role, which feels odd, but also rewarding whenever I get to watch the episodes live now.
WEEKLY TV SHOWS
Good Trouble (Season 4)
Davia and Dennis continue to be infuriating, but I love Davia’s gig as a teacher. She’s doing such great work with Elliot, I just fear that relationship getting messed up when she eventually starts dating his father … which is totally what this is leading up to.
Roswell, New Mexico (Season 4)
I definitely understand why Malex as a ship is so popular, but I’m still salty because of how Malex fans treated Maria. Still, the show is doing those fans dirty by not having had Alex be in the show at all for most of the (final !!!) season so far.
As always, don’t forget to add me on Letterboxd if you want to be up to date on all my movie experiences!
Don’t Make Me Go
Hannah Marks is one of my favorite directors. John Cho is an incredible actor, who is just mighty fine in the role of a dad. Add to that an emotional road trip? Sounds like perfection to me, but I am FURIOUS at the third act of the film. It didn’t come out of nowhere exactly, but it still felt like a rushed twist that didn’t pay off the way they likely intended it to. Up to that point, it had been a really great movie, but the end just doesn’t leave you satisfied.
Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between
Netflix realized that people really love YA book adaptations and apparently bought a bunch of rights to stuff. First we had To All the Boys and Moxie, but they really stepped it up this year. Along for the Ride, Love & Gelato (which I still need to watch) and this movie all within a couple months.
I don’t mind the return of the 90-minute flicks that are merely mediocre. I know that we, as film geeks and an audience with a certain palette, can get better, but it was alright. The cast has previously done some amazing stuff, so this was just … not really it. But it’s nice enough!
