Schooled had a bit of a stumble at the very beginning. It didn't know what it wanted to be at first. I'm glad they figured out what they wanted to do with the series by the midpoint of season one. This season seems to run with that direction and further explores the possibilities for the show.
The Goldbergs: Season 7 means that we've gone through 7 years in the life of The Goldbergs family. There have been a few changes that have happened throughout the years that might put in a few restrictions for the direction of this series. I'm actually really surprised that they've been consistent with the level of writing throughout the series. I would have though that they would have run out of material by now but they continue to innovate and find new 80's references to throw at the show.
The Lovebirds is Netflix's latest comedy to be released during the pandemic. They have had some enjoyable ones such as Coffee and Kareem, Extraction and The Wrong Missy. These movies aren't must see movies but they are good diversions if you need to waste a few hours. Sadly I don't know if I can say the same for this movie. The couple dynamics in this movie sort of fell a little flat for me.
Seven Years in Tibet is one of the last movies I wanted to check out when it first came out. It came at a time when I was still a teenager so I didn't really have the mental maturity to go through the viewing. It didn't help that I thought it was a white savior movie from the trailer. Fast forward to 2020 and I'm willing to give these movies a try. I was pleasantly surprised with A River Runs Through It, so why not check this one out too.
Slaughterhouse Rulez blends a lot of familiar movies but I'm not sure if it melded quite as well as they were expecting. Still this is an enjoyable film to kill some time if you're looking for something to watch. In theory it should have worked really well but some of the scenes fell flat. Maybe it's because I've seen the scenes done better in other movies.
Captain Courageous is a movie that I have never heard of. Netflix has had a good batting average with me so I thought I'd check it out. What I experienced from this movie was nothing more than a cookie cutter low budget movie. There's elements of entertainment but for the most part it wasn't that great a ride.
