Spoiler-Free Review of “Do Revenge” on Netflix: Dark Comedy Pays Tribute to 90’s and 2000’s teen films in the Right Way!

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“In this story, nothing is as it seems…”

Do Revenge released on Netflix on September 16th 2022. The dark teen comedy stars Camila Mendes, Maya Hawke, Austin Abrams, Sophie Turner, and Sarah Michelle Gellar. It runs for two hours.

Inspired by Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, Drea and Eleanor team up to get revenge on each other’s tormentors.

Here is the trailer:

Do Revenge manages to find the perfect balance of 90’s/2000’s nostalgia while creating something for the new generation with two electric leads. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Camila and Maya rock!

Both actresses have a large fanbase from Riverdale and Stranger Things, but I thought they both held their own in this film and were a great duo. Both of their characters were flawed, but they were also so much fun to watch together and I loved the fashion!

Tastefully pays tribute to some of my favorite movies without overdoing it…

We got a recreation of some of my favorite scenes in teen films from the 90’s and 2000’s with a clever choice of soundtrack, along with Sarah Michelle Gellar playing the headmistress. I can’t think of a better choice for the queen of Cruel Intentions

Even though there were plenty of nods at these films, Do Revenge still managed to find its own voice and this is where the magic happened. The comedy actually landed and I think it’s safe to say that I would happily clear a space on my DVD shelf for Do Revenge to go right along with Mean Girls, Cruel Intentions, Clueless, Easy A, 10 Things I Hate About You, and She’s All That. It’s honestly that good!

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Netflix

A little too long…

I prefer movies that run for 90-100 minutes max, especially movies like this. I think that this film dragged a little bit past its welcomed runtime, but I still had a blast watching it so this wasn’t a major con.

So am I in or out?

I’m in!!!

Finally! Netflix gets it right with this teen comedy!

I thoroughly enjoyed this film and I think it found the perfect balance it was looking for. Well done!

DON’T TAKE THE JOB…

It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.

Spoiler-Free Review of “Vampire Academy” on Peacock: A Better Adaptation This Time Around

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“The spark of revolution can come from anywhere…”

Vampire Academy released on Peacock on September 15th 2022. The YA vampire series (based on the novels of the same name) will have ten episodes in total. Four of them are available to stream now. It stars Daniela Nieves, Sisi Stringer, Kieron Moore, and J. August Richards.

The series follows the friendship between Rose and Lissa, who live in an elite vampire society where guardians and royals aren’t supposed to be so close with new threats emerging.

Here is the trailer:

Vampire Academy takes another stab at adapting this popular series onto the screen with the team behind The Vampire Diaries, but is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Peacock

Gets things right this time around…

I’ve read the series and while I enjoyed the film, I wanted a lot more from it. I think fans of the book series will be pleased with this version, which already feels like a much more satisfying adaptation.

There is believable chemistry and a solid friendship between Rose and Lissa, making the audience immediately want to root for them.

Plus, J. August Richards from Angel is in this series so that’s an automatic bonus!

Nails the moody/romantic TVD vibe…

This should really come as no surprise since the series is brought to us from the same team, but I felt vibes from the earlier seasons of TVD and The Originals in a positive way. If that’s your jam, you’ll find plenty to appreciate here in this stylistic series.

The Cons:

Vampire Academy Spoiler Free 2

Images courtesy of Peacock

Needs more edge…

I know this is a YA series, but I just want the fight scenes to feel believable and intense. A lot of the content feels very superficial and I think if it digs deeper, it can tap into something darker and gritty, which would be really entertaining to watch unfold on screen.

The performances so far are all pretty mediocre, but I see some potential in a few characters. I think I’m just exhausted from all of the YA/supernatural/fantasy series and I want something a little more here, but there’s still plenty to enjoy if that is your genre.

So am I in or out?

Vampire Academy Spoiler Free 3

I’m in about 75 percent…

There’s enough to enjoy with this series if you’re a fan of the book series or shows like TVD and The Originals. I just hope we tap into something a little bit darker as the episodes continue.

Spoiler-Free Review of “Pearl” in Theaters: Horror Fans have a new Franchise to Obsess Over!

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“One day the whole world’s gonna know my name…”

Pearl released in theaters on September 16th 2022. The horror film is a prequel to X and it stars Mia Goth, David Corenswet, and Emma Jenkins-Puro. It runs for approximately an hour and forty-five minutes.

This origin film allows us to see how Pearl became the disturbing villain we witnessed in the brutal and bloody slasher film, as we see how life used to be on the farm.

Here is the trailer:

Pearl is mesmerizing and disturbing, creating more layers for the X franchise, while allowing Mia Goth to truly shine on the screen in a bloody fantastic way. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of A24

Mia Goth is incredible!

I loved her in X, but wow did she really shine in this film. She was so mesmerizing and disturbing. I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen. Even though there are other characters in the film, the main focus is Pearl and I thought she captivated the audience’s attention with every single word and facial expression…including that one during the credits that will probably still haunt me for a while…

Images courtesy of A24

Expands the X universe in an effective way.

X has been my favorite film of the year so far and I thought that this origin story for Pearl made me like it even more. It’s basically another chapter, revealing more pieces of the puzzle while allowing an already disturbing villain to transcend into something even more unique and terrifying in such a brilliant way. It was amazing seeing the familiar setting again and even though this film had a much different tone, it still channeled that creepy vibe I loved so much in X without ever skipping a beat.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of A24

Takes a little while to get going…

I didn’t really mind the first half, but I thought the second half of the film was a lot stronger and the pacing was better. Maybe it was because I knew what would eventually happen with Pearl, but some of the opening scenes took a little while to get going, but everything was still done in a compelling way.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of A24

I’m in 100 percent!!!!!

A worthy addition to the X franchise where Mia Goth gets the chance to truly shine.

I loved this film!

P.S. Make sure you stick around after the credits!

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Pearl in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Wedding Season” on Hulu: In Love with a Criminal

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“I object…”

Wedding Season premiered on September 8th 2022 on Hulu. There are eight episodes in total that are all available to stream now. The thriller-comedy series stars Rosa Salazar, Gavin Drea, Jamie Michie, and Callie Cooke. Each episode is approximately 34-37 minutes.

Stefan attempts to talk the love of his life out of marrying the wrong guy, but things get complicated when her new family is murdered and Stefan becomes the main suspect.

Here is the trailer:

Wedding Season has a killer fun premise with likable leads, but does it do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Hulu

Great chemistry between Stefan and Katie.

Rosa Salazar is quickly becoming one of my favorite new actresses and she dominates the screen in this one. I actually really liked Stefan’s character as well and I enjoyed the Bonnie and Clyde-esque adventures. There was believable chemistry between them and a spark that lit up the screen.

The thrilling moments were a lot of fun!

I really enjoyed the moments in the present day timeline and I thought these two were so much fun to watch. Stefan’s reactions to what was going on were hilarious and I was actually on the edge of my seat quite a few times. This series had elements of a light thriller with a dangerous romance to keep us invested.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Hulu

Tries to do too much…

While I enjoyed the mash-up of rom-com moments and thrilling action, this show attempted to cram a lot into thirty minute episodes. Sometimes the flashbacks were slightly confusing and I much preferred the present day timeline. The friend characters were OK and served their purpose, but there was some unnecessary fluff to sift through.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Hulu

I’m in about 75 percent…

Overall, this was an enjoyable watch and I loved Rosa Salazar’s character, but sometimes less is more and I think this series over-complicated things a little too much at times. That being said, I still was satisfied with my ride and there are plenty of entertaining moments up until the very end.

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Wedding Season in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Last Light” on Peacock: Welcome back to TV, Matthew Fox!

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“We’ll get to the bottom of it…”

Last Light released on Peacock on September 8th 2022 with all five episodes available to stream now. The environmental thriller series stars Matthew Fox, Joanne Froggatt, Amber Rose Revah, and Alyth Ross.

A global oil crisis unfolds when Andy Yeats is summoned to the Middle East, now separated from his family as all chaos breaks loose.

Here is the trailer:

Last Light has a solid premise with a fan favorite lead, but does it do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Peacock

Matthew Fox is the best part of the series…

Let’s be honest, Matthew Fox is the main reason why I tuned in to this show. LOST is my favorite series of all time and I’ve been waiting for this series to come out for over a year just to see Matthew Fox in it.

While I had some issues with the series, I can say with confidence that Matthew Fox delivered a believable performance. He elevated this series in a lot of ways and it was great to see him on screen.

The other actors did a good job with what they were given.

Some action here and there…

Even though I could see most of the twists and reveals coming, there is some action to enjoy. I thought the opening episode was a lot stronger than what followed, but the show has enough going on to keep you invested. Peacock was smart to release all five episodes at once because I’m not sure this would have translated well as a weekly series.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Peacock

Not as thrilling as I wanted it to be…

The series is not bad at all and very watchable, but I wanted a lot more “thrilling” moments because Matthew Fox is just so good in these types of roles and he deserved a lot more here. I didn’t mind the story-lines splitting up between the different characters, but everything seemed a little bit too predictable and neat to really keep me on the edge of my seat.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Peacock

I’m in about 75 percent…

Matthew Fox is fun to watch and there’s enough going on for five episodes to enjoy, but I would manage your expectations accordingly. This was an OK thriller, but it could have been a lot better.

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Last Light in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Tell Me Lies” on Hulu: Addicted to Love

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“Do you still love me?”

Tell Me Lies released on Hulu on September 7th 2022 with the first three episodes available to stream now. The remaining seven episodes will air weekly. Based on the novel of the same name and produced by Emma Roberts, the romance-drama series stars Grace Van Patten, Jackson James White, Catherine Missal, and Spencer House. Each episode runs for approximately 42-46 minutes.

Lucy becomes obsessed with a guy at college who has a few secrets of his own, as we follow a toxic relationship and how it impacts the lives of those around them.

Here is the trailer:

Tell Me Lies is a guilty pleasure slow burn that highlights just how dangerous some relationships can be while giving us a deadly secret to ponder over. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Hulu

Lucy has layers.

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of watching shows centered around a female character who is starry-eyed and naive about all the wrong things. Lucy is a darker character and really intriguing to watch. I liked Grace Van Patten in Nine Perfect Strangers and so far she is really captivating my attention in this series. 

Stephen is a mystery and just when I think I have him figured out, we are thrown a curve ball at the end of episode three that has me anxiously waiting to find out more.

Well played!

Images courtesy of Hulu

Not your average love story…

I didn’t really know what to expect with this one and I haven’t read the book, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this from the start. I was drawn in completely to this bad romance with edge and I am loving every second of it. I can’t wait to see things unfold into something really dark and chaotic. 

I also like that there is a mystery in the background and after that cliffhanger at the end of episode three, I need to know more about it immediately!

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Hulu

The supporting characters aren’t as interesting…

We’re spending some time on some of the other characters, but I’m honestly not that interested. I just want to know about Lucy and Stephen, but I don’t need that many details about the lives of everyone else unless it directly relates to them. The actors do a decent enough job, but I’ve seen enough college and teen dramas before and they aren’t doing anything that extraordinary. Our main characters are, however.

The hook-up scenes are a bit excessive. We pretty much get one with every new transition, but it hasn’t taken away from the main story that much so far.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Hulu

I’m in!!!

An addicting and steamy romance with a dark edge!

It’s safe to say that I’m hooked and then some! I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Devil in Ohio” on Netflix: YA Cult Mystery with a Strong Lead

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“She tries to save everyone…”

Devil in Ohio released on Netflix on September 2nd 2022 with eight episodes available to stream now. Based on the novel of the same name, the mystery thriller limited series stars Emily Deschanel, Madeleine Arthur, Sam Jaeger, Xaria Dotson, and Gerardo Celasco. Each episode runs for approximately 42-46 minutes.

A psychiatrist tries to help a young girl who has escaped from a cult, putting herself and her family in great danger.

Here is the trailer:

Devil in Ohio creates a chilling tone throughout the series as it draws you deeper into its mystery, but does it do enough to be worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Great to see Emily Deschanel on the small screen again!

The former star of Bones really shined in this series and gave a believable and heartfelt performance. The rest of the cast was great as well and I liked that each character had enough layers. I would have liked to have seen a little more from both Mae and Suzanne’s past, but it’s not always easy adapting a series from a novel and perhaps I’ll go back and read that to learn more about them.

Images courtesy of Netflix

A mystery that lures you in…

I was drawn in right away on this one and I thought that each episode did enough to hook the audience more and more. The story was a good one and I thought it had a decent balance of YA and family drama along with the cult mystery behind it. 

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Needed a darker edge at times…

Since this was based on a YA novel, it glazed over a lot of the darker cult aspects that I actually wanted to explore more. We definitely got sprinkles of just how twisted and disturbing the cult was, but I wanted to witness something even more shocking and terrifying. It just needed to dig a little bit deeper.

The pacing was also a little slow at times, but I still thought there was enough going on to bring me back with each episode.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Netflix

I’m in about 75 percent…

The series had a lot of potential and the mystery was genuinely unsettling and creepy. I liked the characters for the most part, but I just wanted this series to transform into something a little bit more mature and dark to fully captivate my attention. Overall, I enjoyed my watch, however.

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Devil in Ohio in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Fakes” on Netflix: A Blast to Binge-Watch

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“All good things come to an end…”

Fakes premiered on September 2nd 2022 on Netflix. There are ten episodes in total that are all available to stream now. The Canadian comedy series stars Jennifer Tong, Emilija Baranac, and Richard Harmon. Each episode is approximately 22-26 minutes.

Best friends, Zoe and Becca, start their own fake ID empire, but things get complicated when their life of crime stumbles out of control.

Here is the trailer:

Fakes is very much Booksmart meets Teenage Bounty Hunters with a flair of its own, but does it do enough to become your next worthy binge-watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Netflix

A fun concept with super short episodes.

I personally really liked the premise for this one. It really gave off some Teenage Bounty Hunter vibes in a good way. I had so much fun watching this and it was very easy to binge-watch with the shorter episodes.

The soundtrack was awesome and the main characters were likable for the most part. I also liked how the series did episodes from different perspectives to give this show a unique voice of its own.

Images courtesy of Netflix

Richard Harmon is the best part of the show!

I’m already a huge fan of his from The 100, but he really gave this series a much needed edge. He is hilarious, but he also had some deeper layers, which I appreciated. He is a scene stealer for sure!

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Starts off a little unsure of itself.

The first two episodes were a little iffy for me. I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep tuning in, but I was hooked by the time I got to episode three. The series really found its voice then and I also started to connect to all of the characters a lot more at this point. Not all of the humor landed, but there were enough entertaining moments to enjoy.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Netflix

I’m in!!!

This was a super fun watch with great characters and a really cool concept that I thoroughly enjoyed. If you’re looking for something light and fun to shake things up, you’re in the right place.

Spoiler-Free Review of “I Came By” on Netflix: A Terrifying and Riveting Thriller

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“I think he’s right to be scared…”

I Came By released on Netflix on August 31st 2022. The thriller film stars George MacKay, Hugh Bonneville, Kelly Macdonald, Varadu Sethu, and Percelle Ascott. It runs for approximately an hour and fifty minutes.

A graffiti artist discovers a shocking secret that puts him and the people closest to him in immediate danger.

Here is the trailer:

I Came By is an intense film that builds and builds into something truly frightening. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Intense AF!

Wow, this film kept me on the edge of my seat and then some! I was so drawn in and I couldn’t look away. I love the thriller genre, but this film took things to another level and I think a lot of that was because it was dark and rooted in the real horror of what happens when someone’s cold-blooded actions are covered up by their connections and power.

Kept me guessing…

I really didn’t know what would happen next once the horrifying secret was revealed. This film wasn’t afraid to brutally rip away hope from some of its characters and it was never predictable. The villain was beyond terrifying and I am still shaking after watching some of those scenes…

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Slower start…

The beginning of this film had a slower pace and I wasn’t really sure if I was going to keep watching, but once I got to the thirty minute mark, I could not turn off this film. It lured me in to this dark and twisted story that was so engrossing. There’s a little bit of set-up to sit through, but I recommend sticking it out because it’s worth it.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Netflix

I’m in!!!!

A ruthless thriller with a satisfying ending!

I highly recommend adding this to your watch-list. It was such a consuming watch!

Spoiler-Free Review of “The Patient” on Hulu: A Simple, but Effective Thriller Series

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“How can I help you?”

The Patient released on Hulu on August 30th 2022 with its first two episodes. The psychological thriller series will have ten episodes in total that will air weekly. It stars Steve Carell and Domhnall Gleeson. Each episode runs for approximately 23-25 minutes.

A therapist named Dr. Strauss is dealing with the loss of his wife when he meets an odd new patient who decides to hold him hostage while sorting out his issues with being a serial killer.

Here is the trailer:

The Patient doesn’t waste any time as it starts off in a startling and chilling way, reeling us into the therapy session from hell. Is it worthy of YOUR next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Hulu

Unique cat-and-mouse premise.

I really like the concept for this one and I’m excited to see where it goes. I appreciated that we didn’t waste too much time on exhausting set-up. Rather, we started off with a bang and then added in the layers as we went along. The formula may seem simple, but it’s working so far and really luring me in.

Shorter episodes.

So far the episodes are just under a half hour, which will make this one very easy to watch each week (similar to OMITB). The content is heavier, but there is still some dry sarcasm to keep things from becoming too overdone. There is a good dynamic between the main characters and already a cliffhanger to ponder over.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Hulu

Weekly episodes…

This isn’t necessarily a huge con, but sometimes I have a difficult time keeping up with shows that air weekly. I am really intrigued by this one and I think it could have been binge-watch worthy, but I’ll have to wait each week to see how things unfold…

So am I in or out?
