Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #23

I’ve been changing my mind about this like a million times now, but I think that switching this series of posts to Friday is the move for me. It’s still going to be weekly, but I might adjust it to my work/life schedule and post on either Thursday or Friday – depending on which is more convenient. Hope everyone can live with that, because I still have shows and movies to talk about. You can always bet on that!

FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS

ExU: Calamity (limited campaign)

Okay, at this point in time, I think it’s very obvious that I’m just completely engrossed in the world of Critical Role. Last week, the finale of ExU: Calamity aired and IT WRECKED ME! I was seriously not okay, because I sobbed (like, legit ugly cried) through at least two hours of the thing.

The special thing about Calamity is that it’s a prequel. We all knew what the outcome would be, we knew that this would have consequences for this world that are felt centuries later still. It was obviously going to be sad, but what a sad, sad hoot it ended up being! I cannot express enough how amazing these characters were. Their hubris and inevitable fate and yet we still all got attached to them from minute one. Brennan Lee Mulligan was always a force to be reckoned with, but he outdid himself as GM in this one.

I AM STILL BLOWN AWAY! It’s one of the best campaigns I’ve ever watched.

The Summer I Turned Pretty (Season 1)

I’m so glad this show already got renewed for a second season!

I should probably start this by saying that I never read the books, but from what I gathered, they changed and updated quite a bit for the show and I personally loved it. The characters are mostly teens and they are hella messy, but it’s easier to forgive at that age.

The dynamic between the characters was so well done and I especially loved how much it hinged on the familial aspect as well. The mothers were a true joy to watch in this series. It also just had so much heart and really had me and my friends dissolved into tears at a couple instances. I don’t know why I keep doing this to myself (don’t want to spoil it, so I won’t say what part exactly made me tear up), but I should really stop watching/reading about a topic that hits way too close to home.

Also, this show had the perfect amount of Taylor Swift songs. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

The Umbrella Academy (Season 3)

I’m not going to lie, I have mixed feelings about this season.

On the one hand, I loved the additions of the Sparrows and think they handled Viktor’s coming out really well. I was so here for the family love and acceptance. However, they did Allison so dirty and I can’t get over that. She used to be one of the best characters and while her spiraling and anger was completely justified, I struggle a lot with the actions the writers pushed on her character. It’s some bad stuff …

Anyway, this was not my favorite season, but also just a lengthy set up for season 4. I hope they do get renewed, because I just want a clean ending at some point or another.

WEEKLY TV SHOWS

Ms. Marvel (Season 1)

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (Season 1)

What an interesting change of pace! I loved seeing the characters portray such different personalities and that our Doc got his own storyline. It was really beautiful.

Superman & Lois (Season 2)

I’m kind of starting to get over this season. It all seems so doom and gloom and I don’t like that as much.

Roswell, New Mexico (Season 4)

There was a Maria plot line, so yay me! However, Gregory is nowhere to be seen and while I love Dallas, I really wanted her and Greg Manes to be the endgame.

Good Luck to You, Leo Grande

This movie is very conversation heavy and could have likely been performed as a play as well, but it’s not boring to look at as a movie at all! Sometimes, I do think that certain stories are better suited for a stage than the screen, but it worked out well here.

I absolutely love this sexual exploration for an older woman and especially one portrayed by Emma Thompson. I’ve never not enjoyed watching her performances, so she’s a treat in general, but then … enter Daryl McCormack. It’s honestly not fair how beautiful this man is, because he is almost distracting in his beauty. His hypnotic eyes, the way he speaks and moves – chef’s kiss – casting for this role.

Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #22

Sorry for being a day late! I was in the midst of watching things and the post would have been completely empty without me finishing those first. However, I’m now ready to talk about all the things I watched. Let’s go!

FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS

First Kill (Season 1)

Whichever outlet called that show a “tired take” clearly doesn’t understand the meaning of it. How much sapphic vampire/vampire hunter content did we have in the past couple of years? I’d love for someone to enlighten me.

And yes, vampires come and go in terms of being in, but who cares? I for one love stories about vampires, especially those that aren’t so much in the horror genre, but more lighthearted with a little exploration of what it means to be human/a monster. While there was some corny stuff, I thought the show was really easy to binge and I’d definitely want to know how it continues. So many loose threads.

Love, Victor (Season 3)

Kind of can’t believe that this was truly the final season, but they sure wanted to pack a lot of things into it. Every single character was in some kind of relationship drama to the point where I just thought the show was doing entirely too much. Without wanting to spoil anything, I didn’t think it was necessary to put so many of the relationships in peril, just to make stuff work out in the final episode. I would have actually loved to see some couples (if we have to follow the incessant need to pair everyone up like it’s the end of the world to be single) just have a solid relationship without hiccups.

But please don’t get me wrong! I had a lot of fun with the last season and thought that it ended on a good note for most characters. I especially enjoyed the various friendships and the parent-kid-conversations made me tear up on multiple occasions. On top of that, Rahim was once again a standout for me. I’m so glad they added the character.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (Season 1)

Spock and his siblings – it never it gets boring!

Roswell, New Mexico (Season 4)

I know I’m like a broken record on this, but there just wasn’t enough Maria for me. They’re letting me down when it comes to my girl.

The Bad Guys

No idea what it is as of late, but all the animation movies that I watch are great. Maybe this isn’t exactly on par with Encanto and Turning Red, which I’ve seriously watched way too many times at this point, but I had a really good time. It had great comedic dynamics and a nice emotional hook as well, without actually making me cry though. It reminded me a little of Zootopia meets Ocean’s Eleven or something, so that was really neat.

Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #21

I know I keep saying it, but I almost forgot about this post, because the weeks just keep whooshing by. I did watch a couple interesting things though, so let’s talk about those!

FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS

The Legend of Vox Machina (Season 1)

Okay, so … I would really like to play D&D, which I’ve never done and up to a week ago had no clue about, but I went down a massive rabbit hole in the shape of “Critical Role“. I’m so obsessed now and somewhere in the midst of watching Campaing 3, trying to catch up before the weekly releases are back. It’s a lot of hours, but … I love it?

Anyway, The Legend of Vox Machina is based on Critical Role’s first campaign and was kickstarter financed by the fans. People being passionate about their hobbies can really make a lot of things happen. I was excited to see how that all would translate to an animated show, but I liked it. The look is very similar to Invincible and it’s full of violence and lewd jokes, that I maybe wasn’t entirely prepared for. I’m really looking forward to another season and also kind of crossing my fingers for an adaptation of “the Mighty Nein”. Maybe that’s asking for too much though.

WEEKLY TV SHOWS

Ms. Marvel (Season 1)

You can find a full review of the first episode here.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (Season 1)

Me having the hots for Captain Pike instantly made me dubious for his love interest this episode and I was right. Anyway, I can’t believe they left the child there … just … wow.

Superman & Lois (Season 2)

Well, I hope Clark didn’t lose his powers, because that would make the show very … meh.

The Boys (Season 3)

Okay, I’m not exactly up to date, but I have watched the first episode of the season. I need to get myself into the right mindset for that kind of graphic violent content.

Roswell, New Mexico (Season 4)

It’s the final season and I’m SAD! But as long as Maria goes off happy into the sunset, I’m good. I wonder why Gregory was only briefly mentioned. I feel like they’re teasing a romance with someone else this season and while I like the guy, I don’t want it. The slow build up with Gregory was the best!

Top Gun: Maverick

To my utter surprise, I was head over heels watching this movie. I have no nostalgic connection to the original Top Gun movie, in fact, I wasn’t even close to being born when it was released. I’ve heard of it and I’m pretty sure it’s been on TV at some point in my life, but my knowledge was very limited.

Top Gun: Maverick though? Such a nice movie. I know that nice isn’t the descriptor people are hoping for, but it gave me a nice, warm and fuzzy feeling. I’m not usually into the whole war games and guns stuff, but this was about connection, trust, instinct and skill. I’m especially glad I watched it on the big screen, where I often felt like I was being pushed back in the F-18. The hard work the cast went through to prepare and do their own stunts and flights really paid off. Well done!

Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #20

This week just sort of passed by in a bit of a blur. I did watch stuff, but my brain has mostly saddled on one show in particular. I bet you can all imagine what it will be, but let’s just get started with the post either way.

FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS

Star Trek: Discovery (Season 3)

So, as you can see, I’ve ultimately decided to continue with Star Trek: Discovery. I thought that I wouldn’t necessarily love it being set in the future now, but I didn’t end up minding it as much. I still think they use Michael too much as the chosen one, but her connection with Book was one of the best things of the season. I love that she found her time and place and person. Also, Tilly is like one of my favorite characters, so her storylines were also a real treat for me. Let’s see what Season 4 will hold now.

Stranger Things (Season 4, Vol. 1)

I can’t stop thinking about this show! I’ve already mentioned it in my monthly wrap-up, but it’s basically on my mind 24/7. I don’t want to go into too much detail, but I was really invested in this season. The episodes didn’t feel all that long to me, despite the average season four episode being estimated at 86 minutes.

I’m not much of a horror person and I just looked away a lot of the time when it got super gruesome, but I’m beyond happy to have all these characters back. Even the new additions, where I will admit that I wondered if the cast was getting too big, were all amazing. I cannot imagine it being easy to make your mark entering this established show late on in the game, but a lot of them were just fantastic.

Now the wait for Vol. 2 continues … I just really do NOT want to see Nancy and Steve get back together. Also, I’d like to keep Eddie if possible? I’m afraid to wish for too much, because I just know they’re going to crush me.

WEEKLY TV SHOWS

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (Season 1)

What a fun body swap episode! I know this isn’t like the Spock and T’Pring from the OG stories, but I’m enjoying it still.

Everything Everywhere All at Once

I get it now. I, like many others who hadn’t seen the movie yet, thought this could only have been hyped too much. Which movie could possibly live up to such high expectations? Well, the answer is Everything Everywhere All at Once!

It’s a wild ride and I can just advise to go in with little knowledge and to let yourself get swept up in the craziness. This is what happens when you think out of the box for your storytelling and it has led to the best results. I had my heart racing, tears streaming down my face and scratching my head in confusion and wonder. Simply amazing! It deserves all the praise.

Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #19

I will be honest with you, I’ve spent a lot of time on YouTube, but not so much watching actual shows and movies, so the post will be fairly short this week. Enjoy!

FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS

Halo (Season 1)

Not going to lie, this show was SUCH a surprise to me! I guess I was craving more sci-fi content, but the game “Halo”, which this show is partly based on (which in turn was based on books, from what I’ve learned), has exactly zero appeal to me, so I’m not entirely clear on why I finally watched it. Maybe the fact that Pablo Schreiber has a lead role? He’s a big draw for me ever since he played Mad Sweeney.

Anyway, I’m so glad I knew absolutely nothing going in! Legit the best decision ever, because I had so much fun, while most gaming fans hated it or at least were deeply unhappy with certain elements that I ultimately had zero problem with. I definitely think it could have expanded on the world- and relationship-building some more. It’s fairly slow-told, so there was room for more depth, but I’m happy with this first season.

WEEKLY TV SHOWS

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (Season 1)

The fact that there’s only 10 episode in the first season feels like some sort of crime. I mean … it just keeps getting better as we get to know these characters on a deeper level. You can’t put all of that in one season and then make me wait forever, it at least needs double.

I’m still obsessed, as you can see!

My crew!

Star Trek (2009)

This was a rewatch, I think that should be pointed out first. In fact, I’ve seen this movie so many times, I lost count a while ago. Star Trek (2009) was my proper introduction to the Star Trek universe and part of why I never was interested in any of the prior material. I just wanted *those* actors and no one else. Now my stance has visibly changed and I’m not as attached to them as I was, although I still see Chris Pine as my personal James T. Kirk favorite. Either way, I’m looking forward to them finally doing another movie. Maybe I’ll rewatch the others as well …


Did you watch any of the things I mentioned or do you plan to? I’ve now decided to continue watching Star Trek: Discovery, just because the weekly wait for Strange New Worlds is the worst. Let’s talk about that!

Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #18

You won’t believe it, but I’ve watched stuff again! I know, big shocker! Well, before I draw this out any longer, let’s get started.

FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS

Conversations with Friends (limited series)

I’ve been feverishly waiting for this show to release. After the massive success of Normal People and the complicated feelings I have towards it, I knew that this was going to be either hit or miss with me. While I think the show has some serious pacing issues, it managed to capture the Sally Rooney vibes perfectly again. Check out my full thoughts on the book and the show here.

Star Trek: Discovery (Season 1-2)

I fell into a bit of a Star Trek hole after checking out Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and not getting some of the backstory, so I just binged two seasons of Discovery. Honestly, I really liked it. I understand the people who would have preferred a more episodic approach instead of these complicated seasonal arcs, but I still loved the characters. Sure, Michael basically being the chose one got a tinsy bit repetitive after a while, but she is a beautiful and complex character and I understand and support the focus being on her. Meanwhile, I don’t understand the criticism of this “not being Star Trek”, because if I got the chance to adapt something anew, I’d also like to put my own spin on things. I don’t feel like it betrayed anything crucial, although I’ve never been a serious Trekkie.

I can’t say that I will continue with the remaining seasons, at least not for now. I think I’d prefer to stick to the crew of the Enterprise for the time being.

WEEKLY TV SHOWS

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (Season 1)

This show is my everything right now. Seriously the highlight of my week, I just love having my Captain Pike around. (And the rest of the crew as well .. obviously.)

Captain Christopher Pike of the USS Enterprise smirking into the camera and saying "Hit it" before the starship jumps into warp.

9-1-1: Lone Star (Season 3)

The season finale was really solid, although I thought that the season as a whole focused a bit too much on Owen as a character. I just don’t think he’s actually that interesting, even though the incident from his childhood was masterfully done. Really got me emotional.

9-1-1 (Season 5)

I don’t really know what Lucy added as a character other than to have Buck’s character development be ruined a little bit? This season had some ups and downs, but I still love it and am looking forward to more.

MOVIES

As always, don’t forget to add me on Letterboxd if you want to be up to date on all my movie experiences! 

Senior Year

I know that Rebel Wilson’s humor isn’t for everyone, but I enjoyed the movie. I get the common comparison to Never Been Kissed, although the creepy element is taken out in that everyone is very much aware that she is an adult woman and not a teenager. Generally, I wouldn’t say that there is too big of a focus on romance though. It was actually just cute and wholesome for the most part, despite some cringey jokes.

Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #17

I didn’t forget about the post again! I was just really busy, so it took me a while to get the recap done, but here we are. Let’s dive right in.

FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS

Outer Range (Season 1)

This was one of the strangest shows I have watched in quite some time. It’s almost like Dark meets Yellowstone, because time-travelling cowboys is truly what I would describe this as! For the most part, I found myself very confused with what was going on, because I struggle to see the big picture, but I did guess some developments and twists throughout the show, so there’s that.

The storytelling is quite slow and sometimes I found myself getting a bit bored, unfortunately. I’m not sure it’s a must-see, but it has an excellent cast with amazing performances considering the strange material. I think I’m curious enough to tune in for another season, but wouldn’t be super miffed if it didn’t get more episodes.

The Wilds (Season 2)

I’ve waited so long for this new season and it was a bit of a case of “the wait between seasons made me loose a little bit of interest”, but by the time the final episode rolled around, I was fully invested again!

The thing is, we had the girls and they were amazing and intriguing and now they had to split the time with the boys, who were more or less their counterparts in many ways, and do the whole getting to know spiel again. I ended up totally loving most of the boys, even some of the douchier guys, but the show always ends when it gets most interesting. I NEED another season. Desperately.

As a side note, I love how Charles Alexander weaves into most interviews that Alex Fitzalan is his best friend. It makes me so soft for them.

WEEKLY TV SHOWS

9-1-1: Lone Star (Season 3)

Didn’t I just say that Nancy and Matteo would be cool? I totally did. But Judd in danger again is not what I like to see.

9-1-1 (Season 5)

Well … is Taylor breaking her promise worse than Buck cheating on her? That’s what we have to deal with next week.

Legacies (Season 4)

How can you call a super powerful god … Ken?

Along for the Ride

I’m going to keep this short, because it was a really lovely movie. I had a great time watching it, although I don’t think it’s something that will stick with you for the longest time. If you want to hear my full thoughts, you should check out my book to movie comparison here.

The Lost City

I’m so glad I finally got to watch this movie!!! Interviews with Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum have been absolutely hilarious and I’ve been craving the cinematic return of romcoms and The Lost City fully delivered. The comedic timing was excellent and I actually felt the chemistry nicely. Why can’t we have more movies like this? I genuinely want to know, because they are fun and a crowd-pleaser. We do need the good stuff too and not just Hallmark-esque films.

Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #16

I know, I know … I skipped last week, but I’m back now. Sometimes I just need a little longer to watch things and I’m still contemplating moving this feature to Friday. Just saying.

FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS

Our Flag Means Death (Season 1)

I am SO in love with this show and I don’t even know how to express those feelings. I’ve always liked Taika Waititi and the projects he undertakes, but this one was extra fun. I don’t know if it’s because I have a soft spot for pirate stories or because the romantic chemistry between Taika and Rhys was off the charts, but I so hope that there’s more.

They took real life pirates, but made this story completely their own. After so many of my friends tweeted about wanting another season, I gave in and watched it and have to fully agree! We need more of these kind of shows on our screens, where not everything is dark and gritty. Where things can be different and vulnerable, but still fun. MORE PLEASE!

WEEKLY TV SHOWS

Outer Range (Season 1)

I really don’t get what’s happening. I don’t even know who’s side I’m supposed to be on?

Superman & Lois (Season 2)

This show is so fantastic and the bizarro episodes in general were amazing, but I don’t understand why there’s another break. This is why network television is so freaking annoying.

9-1-1: Lone Star (Season 3)

What a huge episode on fathers and I was here for it. Owen’s character is really getting some depth to him, which is great, but I also like to see other characters shine.

9-1-1 (Season 5)

I CALLED THE THING WITH JONAH. I know it was fairly predictable, but I’m still proud of myself.

Good Trouble (Season 4)

Davia and Dennis – they really need to get a move on. I hope Luca sticks around, but this was already the spring finale. I hate the wait.

Legacies (Season 4)

Alright, I took a break from the show, but I’m all caught up now. I’m so over the whole Landon/Hope stuff, I just don’t care. I’m here for the gods and especially Ben and Jed. Zane Phillips is a sight for sore eyes.

MOVIES

Crush

Crush was a really sweet and fun sapphic movie. The chemistry between the leads was great, the adults supportive and the friends amazing – everyone deserves friends like that! However, sometimes the movie was just too loud and over the top. It robbed the story of some of its authenticity. Still, cute and definitely alright for a nice movie night.

Uncharted

I have zero investment in this franchise and just watched this on a whim. The beginning totally reminded me of some frames that could have been taken from a video game, so that’s nice? Other than that, it was alright for a treasure hunting movie? I liked the chemistry and banter between most characters, although the women were done dirty for the most part. I’m outing myself here, but I mostly watched for Rudy since I love him on Outer Banks and he’s genuinely not a good reason to watch the film.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

This is going to be short and spoiler-free. I might do a whole spoiler-filled review in a week? Unsure – sound off in the comments if you would be interested in something like that!

I left the movie with a deep sadness inside of me. Phase 4 of the MCU is just the era of pain and I’m not sure I’m 100% here for it. Having said that, they promised more horror and delivered. I fell for every. single. jump scare. It gave me a lot of food for thought. We shall see where it leads, but I hope everyone gets to enjoy this with as little prior knowledge as possible.

Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #15

I know, I know … we’re one day late with the feature. I was in the middle of watching a lot or anticipating quite a couple things, so I did a quick Twitter poll and decided to move it to Friday instead. I’m not sure if this will be a permanent change, but we’re sticking to once a week regardless.

FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS

Heartstopper (Season 1)

How freaking precious is this show!? For those not familiar, Heartstopper is based on the graphic novel of the same title by Alice Oseman and is this really cute tale about two boys falling in love. I binged it super quickly and can already see it becoming a comfort show in the future with loads of rewatches.

As cute and soft and warm as it is, there’s also some heavier bits, but I would definitely say that the positives vibes predominated. I was especially pleased that the kids actually looked like kids and don’t mind me, I’m off to adopt half of them now.

Sanditon (Season 2)

With Theo James and Leo Suter exiting the show prior to Season 2, I was really, really hesitant about the new storylines, but I was extremely pleased with the end result. A lot of the love stories and angst was executed beautifully and the new characters grew on me a lot. I wish they would continually screw over Georgiana, but maybe they have an epic love for her planned eventually. Her relationship with Arthur is most precious though and the really became a favorite this season.

Season 3 has already been filmed, so I’m hoping we can expect a release soon! I need it!

Selling Sunset (Season 5)

I love this show, even though I know I shouldn’t. It was a bit of a bummer to see Chrishell and Jason’s love story, knowing how it would end due to press releases from back in December.

I know that a lot of people say that the show would be boring without Christine and the drama she brings with her, but I have to disagree. There’s still a lot going on in the lives of the agents and I feel like we get to see less and less houses because they all just fight all the time. I’d actually like to see it be more peaceful honestly.

For now, I can only wait for the reunion episode on May 6.

WEEKLY TV SHOWS

Outer Range (Season 1)

This show is so freaking weird? I have no clue what’s going on, but I’m more than intrigued to say the least. The cast surprised me.

9-1-1: Lone Star (Season 3)

Anger issues are a real problem … can anyone else imagine a Nancy and Matteo pairing to be kind of fire?

9-1-1 (Season 5)

I have no clue where they are going with the Lucy character.

Good Trouble (Season 4)

I really enjoyed the episode this week. Davia and Dennis going of to find Luca was the best. He deserves to have people looking out for him.

Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #14

I’m not quite myself these days, so I don’t have all that much to tell you. A lot of shows are on a little break or the new ones I’m looking forward to haven’t gripped my attention after all, but I’m still going to do a small summary.

FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS

Abbott Elementary (Season 1)

This show was such a delight to watch and I absolutely support it having a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Seriously, what’s not to like? I love the faux documentary style, I adore the focus on what it means to be a teacher and the dynamics between the characters (If you’re not shipping the slow burn that is Gregory and Janine, what are you even doing?). It’s funny, but it also tugs at your heartstrings in just the right ways – I’m not exaggerating when I say I almost cried in the season finale.

I genuinely wish this show many more season to come. Quinta Brunson and the rest of the team really did something special. Also, kudos to them for continuously donating to educational funds and causes.

WEEKLY TV SHOWS

Sanditon (Season 2)

Usually, I’m one week ahead with the episodes, but not this time. I can’t believe it’s almost over again. I just want the girls to be happy.

9-1-1: Lone Star (Season 3)

The Tarlos content was *chef’s kiss* this week. I felt so sorry for TK for having to restart his journey of sobriety because of no fault of his own and he’s really trying to do his best, on top of grieving his mother. I just think they’re doing so amazing.

9-1-1 (Season 5)

Alright … Buck redeemed himself a little bit this week, but I’m still so mad at him for what he did to Taylor (who I’m not even a real fan of) and the writers for putting him in that situation. It still seems out of character.

Other than that, I worry about the newbies. I don’t really like them yet, because we’ve only seen brief moments of them here and there. I worry about the paramedic for some weird reason? Like he’s purposely putting patients in danger to show his skills and make himself seem invaluable? I hope I’m just imagining that, because I’d rather him stay than Lucy? Just because I really don’t want that kind of trouble on the station. She’s a hotshot for sure.

And thank the heavens for Eddie getting help. No matter how much it hurt to see him break down, it’s what he needed to move foward.

Good Trouble (Season 4)

I’m so, so, so, so glad the promos were misleading and Davia still knows my boy Dennis best. I would have been beyond sulky if they’d moved ahead with Isabella becoming Dennis’ person. I cannot wait for next week though, because Joaquin is for sure going to confront Dennis about his sister and I also read that Luca will be back and that Davia will invite him to stay at the Coterie.

Okay … this movie was very reminiscent of “If I Stay”, just even longer and that truly wasn’t necessary. I have to admit that I stopped it halfway through and continued watching some days later, because it just made me sad, but mainly it’s angsty teen romance ghost stuff?

I think there’s far better storytelling about the afterlife/beyond than this, but also worse stuff. It just felt a bit overdone in parts. I’m a fan of Kyle Allen, but for some reason Joey King and I just don’t vibe.


Did you watch any of the things I mentioned? Let’s talk about that!
