I have tons of opinions that change constantly. I watch a lot of movies and play video games.
Cobra Kai: Season 3 is the latest season that has been released in 2021. I guess it's my first official review of 2021 with a 2021 show. I mentioned in my last review of season 2 that it was a bit of a departure from the first season. I was worried that the third season would continue with this direction. In a sense the it did but at least it kind of found itself and I'm not used to the nonsensical soap opera antics of this franchise.
Cobra Kai: Season 2 starts off right after the very well made first season left off. I was hesitant to watch the first season of the series but after watching it I was totally hooked and decided to binge watch this second season. After checking this season out I have to say there were some directional changes that I wasn't too happy to see but for the most part it kept with the essence of the first season.
I've never been known to make New Years resolutions because they never really pan out. In addition, I don't like to put that much pressure on myself throughout the year. Why put this goal on yourself that you know you're supposed to do anyways? If something is important for you to become a better person you should be doing it no matter what. You shouldn't have to have a resolution to do something like that. If it's a resolution then you're just doing it for that year and then you won't be doing it anymore.
The King of Staten Island is a movie that came out in 2020 that some believe is very close to the true life story of the lead actor Pete Davidson. You have to go into this movie in a certain mindset in order to enjoy this movie though. The main character isn't the most likeable person. Although the people all around him are extremely likeable. It made me kind of pissed that he treats the people around him so horribly.
Cobra Kai: Season One is a series that I've been avoiding for the longest time. I remember liking the original Karate Kid movie but I wasn't a huge fan of the series because I don't remember seeing the sequel. My friend has been hassling me to watch this TV series but because I wasn't a huge fan of the franchise I never bothered. Fast-forward to 2021 and the third season of this series has recently come out and I get curious about the series. It's finally time to take the dive and I am not sorry that I finally succumbed to peer pressure.
Call Her Ganda is a documentary on a very gruesome murder in the Philippines. Being based on a criminal case the movie spans several years. Luckily the documentary doesn't feel like it lasts as long as the actual trial. When I first heard of this film I thought it was simply a murder case but it ended up being much more important than that. It's a very interesting understanding of what's going on in the Philippines as well as its transgender community.
Hamilton is probably one of the last things I thought I would be watching in 2020. It came out not too long on Disney plus but it's a musical and about American history. I've never really been into musicals but things have surprised me in the past. This one is different all my friends would say to me. It's rapping and it's not the same corny old musical that you think it is. They were right. There's so much more to this musical than I thought.
Superintelligence came out very quietly on HBO in 2020. I think this movie was overshadowed by the huge Warner Brothers 2020 movie deal that was recently made. It's too bad because this is a nice little comedy but I wouldn't say it would blow your mind. It's like many of the Melissa McCarthy movies of the past that we all come to love.
