My Review of "Moxie"
Moxie is a recent Netflix exclusive comedy that came out in 2021. It's got pretty much what you would expect from a teen angst movie but with some interesting lessons to boot. Behind everything is some pretty interesting characters but in a way there might have been a little too much going on. It sort of made it feel like a condensed TV series made into a movie.
Lights, Camera, Netflix
10 Things I Hate About You defines life as an adolescent. Hungry with an appetite for romance and an unquenchable thirst for self assurance. Emotions run high and hormones pump like fire through the veins, igniting our physical and psychological transition into adulthood. Twenty years later and 10 Things I Hate About You still holds up majestically! This near-perfect slice of teen romantic comedy will forever be a classic engraved in our hearts for two reasons. Firstly, the message the film conveys being that happiness truly comes from within. Secondly, the pure nostalgia for life in the role as a youngster. As we age like fine wine we recognize that time is of the essence. Events and situations that once held great importance as a teen now crumble. We’ve opened our eyes to the illusion of the over idolized interpretations of what youth should be about versus what it is realistically about. The doubt of self, fear of rejection, and first acts of unadulterated intimacy make a youthful life worth living and in this instance a script worth watching. If 10 Things I Hate About You is high-ranking on your list here are some strategically formulated suggestions any dramedy enthusiasts would call entertaining!
RIP Moira Rose, You've Just Been Gilmored
Yes, real life is cool. BUT, have you ever started a tv show and spent days and days completely immersed – just unabashedly binging it? Then, when you finish the last episode, you get this oddly sad, melancholic ache deep in your chest; in your heart. You don't know what to do with your time - with your life - once it's over. You wish you could discover it anew, watch each scene, meet each character, for the first time again, simply because, you loved it all so much.

Diversify your Netflix
Dig in folks, the pandemic's not over yet but I've got your back for Netflix: The Diverse Edition. Brief reviews and possible spoilers of of:
Netflix: "Country Comfort"
What if the Vietnam Era "Brady Bunch" show had a kid with the iconic 80’s cult movie "Adventures in Babysitting"? What would be the kid? Folks, let’s introduce "Country Comfort", the newest comedy, family, musical series in Netflix. It just premiered March 19, 2021.
The "Thing" about Vikings
After having two young kids at home, a full time job which took me away for half the week (I am a Flight Attendant) and a full time volunteer job at home (chef, nurse, sanitation and various other tasks) I hardly ever watched television. Sometimes on my layovers I would turn on the television in my hotel room and watch random bits of shows or movies (sometimes in foreign languages) that didn’t take too much thinking and pass out after the first half hour with a half eaten sandwich in one hand and the remote control (disinfected of course) in the other. Then along came Covid-19 to change all that. All of a sudden, I was out of a job and spending my days taking care of the kids and nights trying to figure out what the next step in my life should be. One night in July, tired of thinking, I opened Netflix and started watching Vikings. I didn’t even know I was hooked until I couldn’t wait for the kids to fall asleep so I could turn on Netflix. Or, I would get disappointed when my husband would come home early because he doesn’t watch television and would just chat throughout the whole episode. I wasn’t really Netflix and chilling though because Vikings doesn’t let you chill much. The non-stop action and surprises in the show made my heart pound and made me grit my teeth. I was too invested in the show to be just a spectator, I felt like I was part of it. After a few episodes I tried not to get attached to the characters and you should probably do the same. Viking life is dangerous and most of them end up in Valhalla- depending of course on how courageously they died, who knows where the others go... I was very upset when I realized Netflix only had until season 3 at the time but I couldn’t just let it go and wait for Netflix to eventually add the other seasons so I bought season 4A and had to borrow the other seasons from my sister who was almost as much of a viking fanatic as I had become.
A Netflix User's Guide to Feeling Better
I don’t know about you, but “these days” (read, pandemic times) when I sit down in front of the television, I want to watch something that makes me feel better. To escape the sadness and forever-ness of a world taken over by Covid.
If You Liked ‘Her’, Then You Should Watch ‘Violet Evergarden’
Her’s Theodore Twombly lives in a future of soft, warm hues and simplified technology. When he walks beneath the looming landscape of a metropolis, or stands in a crowded public transit, he’s surrounded by the harmony of subtle obliviousness: the internet is in everyone’s ear.
History & Heroism at its finest w/ "The Last Kingdom"
What's the one thing that irritates you the most when you embark on a new series? Of the many that exist, perhaps what are the top three? A lack of consistency, irritating characters you can't seem to get rid of (think Geoffrey or Little Finger from Game of Thrones), and a protagonist that doesn’t earn your full support or vibe with, just about does it for me! But on those notes I’ve been in luck, as Netflix’s The Last Kingdom holds no traces of the aforementioned grievances whatsoever! With only four seasons – the most recent having just arrived earlier this year – The Last Kingdom is not only consistent beginning to “end”, but it also boasts a protagonist that knows how to use his head as well as he wields his sword, isn’t prejudiced, and he’s a funny guy. Lastly, this series is a true rarity that rewards your patience – especially for characters that begin to test yours. Talk about a dream series!
You vs Wild
Have you binge watched every grub eating moment of Naked and Afraid? Sat through each double-crossing episode of Survivor? Shook or nodded your head at every wild setup presented in Could You Survive? Do you yell at the TV when someone decides to “drink the water” or consume that “mystery meat” or reach for some seriously sketchy mushrooms?
