Best of Netflix
Whether you're binge watching or Netflix and Chilling, hats off to the digital streaming behemoth that never ceases to entertain.
Lessons Animation Taught Us: A Bojack Horseman Character Study
In 2018, a Youtube channel called Filmjoy released a video called Lessons Animation Taught Us. Which inspired many content creators to make similar videos on their own explaining their own lessons that were taught to them from animation, as was it's intended goal! Now I'm going to make one of my own. I'm going to be talking about my favorite show of all time, Bojack Horseman! Many people have told me that they refuse to watch the show because of how real it is. But I think it's because of that reason, everyone should watch the show. Because the show is so complex, I can't begin to talk about it all. So I'm just going to talk about some of my favorite characters and what the taught me as they transition to the beginning of the show to the end!
"Emily in Paris" and the World We Live In
Netflix’s new show “Emily in Paris” about a plucky young American who goes to work for a marketing company in the French capital, not knowing a word of the language but armed with her awesome Instagram skills and “fresh perspective”, has certainly stirred up some controversy. In the wake of cancellations of favourite shows such as “GLOW”, many viewers seem to feel they’ve been robbed of something good and given thrash in return. Critics are not exactly charmed, either, and I don’t even want to imagine what the French think about it. (Actually, according to the internet, they seem to be mostly laughing at it in bemusement which, I suppose, is better than the alternative.)

Anime to Watch: BNA: Brand New Animal

Japan Sinks 2020 Review
Japan Sinks 2020 is one of Netflix’s 2020 anime originals, and it had a lot of hype for me going into it.

Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous Review
Last weekend, I opened Netflix looking for something to watch, when lo and behold, a new Jurassic Park series was splashed across my screen.
My Review of "The Sleepover"
The Sleepover is a Netflix exclusive that recently came out. It's a lot more fun than you would have expected. Sure there are a lot of cheesiness and a ton of it is predictable but you have to consider what the target audience for this movie is. It's a family film that is sure to entertain kids and adults alike and I for one was entertained by this movie.
My Review of "Project Power"
Project Power is a super power movie came out recently exclusively to Netflix. I can't really classify this movie as a superhero movie because all of the powers that each of the characters contain are dependent on a pill that they take. Still there's elements of a superhero movie in this movie but they did put a twist to it that is unique. The only problem is that the movie doesn't really have anything absolutely spectacular about it.
The Soul Food We Didn't Know We Needed
When most people think of food for the soul, what comes to mind for many might be something more kin to yoga, meditation, or the advice from self-help gurus. These are things I also enjoy from time to time, so I can understand the appeal. However, these days, what has helped feed my soul, is the new Netflix original series titled “Ratched”, a prequel series about Nurse Mildred Ratched, the antagonist from “One Flew Over The Cuckcoo’s Nest”, put together by Ryan Murphy, who is known for his work with “Niptuck” and “American Horror Story”. This is a series I had seen only one trailer for before watching the piolet, having heard nothing about the connection to the iconic nurse. When this realization came, I knew this was going to be something very interesting and exciting, even with watching only the first episode. Watching this first season, I look forward to many more seasons to follow. Being that this story takes place twenty years before the events of “One Flew Over The Cuckcoo’s Nest”, there’s no doubt there’s a lot of ground to cover before everything ties into that famous story line the world knows so well.
'The Devil All The Time' Movie Review
Introduction Good is good. Evil is evil. But can evil be good? Key themes Willard, fighting in the war, loses faith as he stumbles across Mellar Jones, a fellow soldier who was hung on a tree.
It’s Okay to Not Be Okay
The Netflix show “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” is a Korean show that discusses serious topics of mental health through the romance, laughter, and tearful moments revolving around the protagonists, Moon Gang-tae (played by Kim Soo-hyun), his autistic older brother, Moon Sang-tae (played by Oh Jung-se) and the infamous children’s literature author, Ko Moon-Young (played by Seo Ye-ji). This series is difficult to be categorized into a single genre, because of its rich and diverse storytelling method. The romantic relationship between Moon and Ko, the heart wretching relationship between the Moon brothers, and the horrorific tragedy of the Ko family , leaving the audience experiencing a wide range of emotions through every episode.
