Spoiler-Free Review of “Surviving Summer” on Netflix: Blue Crush style Coming-of-Age Series

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

“Are you into surfing?”

Surviving Summer released on Netflix on June 3rd 2022. The Australian teen series features ten episodes available to stream now. The show stars Sky Katz, Kai Lewins, Savannah La Rain and Dustin Clare. Each episode runs for approximately 26-30 minutes.

A wild teen from New York is sent to Australia to live with family friends she hasn’t seen in years, introducing her to the world of surfing.

Here is the trailer:

Surviving Summer will remind you of Blue Crush and Dive Club, but does this coming-of-age story add anything new to the genre?  Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Aesthetically pleasing.

This series was gorgeous to watch. The scenery was incredible and the music soundtrack complimented it well. I felt like I was being transported somewhere else while watching it and I think the “summer” premiere was a smart one. I’m ready to hit the beach after watching this…

Likable characters.

I would have preferred a little bit more edge to some of the characters, but much like Dive Club, this series was very family friendly. I liked a lot of the characters and I appreciated that we spent enough time peeling back some layers. Even though this was a story I have seen over and over again, it was still entertaining to watch because of the characters.

The Cons:

Predictable with unnecessary montages…

The montages were a bit much in this one. The episodes were on the short side, but I’m not sure that we really needed ten of them. I think this gave us a lot of unnecessary fluff when the story itself was entertaining enough to keep me invested. The ending was also really predictable as well so I’m not sure that this coming-of-age story really did anything that different to make it stand out in the genre.

So am I in or out?

I’m in about 75 percent…

This series had its charms and it was absolutely stunning to watch, but I wanted a little bit more from it. If you enjoy Blue Crush, you will find a lot to enjoy with this one, but you’re probably better off just re-watching that film.

Spoiler-Free Review of “The Perfect Mother” on Netflix: Quick French Thriller with a Solid Twist

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

“I’m in trouble…”

The Perfect Mother (Une Mère Parfaite) premiered on June 3rd 2022 on Netflix with four episodes available to stream now. The mystery-thriller series stars Julie Gayet, Eden Ducourant and Tomer Sisley. Each episode runs for approximately 45-50 minutes.

A mother risks everything to find out the truth when she learns that her daughter is a suspect in a murder investigation.

Here is the trailer:

The Perfect Mother is an addicting mystery thriller with a shocking ending. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

The Perfect Mother Spoiler Free 1

Images courtesy of Netflix

Easy to binge-watch.

With only four episodes, I was able to finish this series in a little over three hours. I think this was a really smart decision. This show could have easily gone off track if it had eight episodes like most Netflix series and it was refreshing watching something so quickly. I didn’t feel like I had to work to get to the end. It all just unraveled naturally and it was very entertaining to watch.

A twist I did not see coming!

Wow, what a twist! This was probably the best part of the series for me. I thought things were wrapping up and then we were thrown a curve ball that really made this series so much more enjoyable. 

The mystery was a good one, but the twist was truly fantastic. If you enjoy series like Pieces of Her and the Harlan Coben series, you will feel right at home with this one.

The Cons:

The Perfect Mother Spoiler Free 2

Images courtesy of Netflix

Unnecessary sub-plots and slow at times…

Since we only had four episodes, we didn’t really need the sub-plots mixed in. They slowed down the overall pace and they took away from the main mystery, which was decent enough. The episodes could have been a little shorter to keep things on track and I would have been fine with that.

So am I in or out?

The Perfect Mother Spoiler Free 3

I’m in!

This series had a solid mystery with a fantastic twist worth sticking around for. If you’re looking for a quick series to binge-watch, you’re in the right place!

Spoiler-Free Review of “The Ledge” (2022) on Demand: Intense and Brutal Thriller

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

“Use your mind…”

The Ledge (2022) originally released on February 18th 2022. It is currently available to stream on demand. The adventure thriller film stars Brittany Ashworth, Ben Lamb, Nathan Welsh, and Louis Boyer. It runs for an hour and twenty-five minutes.

A rock climber ends up in a life threatening situation when she flees from several men trying to kill her by climbing up a mountain with barely any equipment.

Here is the trailer:

The Ledge follows a simple formula that is actually really effective, giving us plenty of thrills and edge-of-your-seat moments. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Evolution Pictures

Intense AF!

This movie really delivered for me in the intensity department. At first I wasn’t really sure about what I was going to watch and then I was completely reeled in before I knew it. There were so many moments that had me screaming at the television. I love survival-type thrillers like this. In a lot of ways, this film had the same vibe as Alone (2020), which I also really enjoyed. If you haven’t watched that one yet, you can check it out on Hulu.

The Ledge had a very simple approach, but sometimes less is more and I think that this style really suited the film.

Images courtesy of Evolution Pictures

Brittany Ashworth is fantastic!

I loved her character and I thought her performance was believable. She was very easy to root for in this. We didn’t get too much set-up in this film, but the layers of her character were later revealed during her climb and I thought that this helped the audience connect to her journey that much more.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Evolution Pictures

Some over-acting from others…

While Brittany Ashworth really gave it her all, the guys didn’t have the same impact. There was some over-acting going on and these characters didn’t really do much for me even though we got some glimpses of potential here and there. This wasn’t a major con, but since some of the acts we witnessed were really brutal and violent, I wanted a little bit more out of the performances so that the intensity matched. Screaming “bitch” over and over isn’t really that original or effective…

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Evolution Pictures

I’m in!

The Ledge may seem like your average thriller, but it really delivers with brutal intensity and a captivating performance. If you enjoy films like Alone (2020) and The River Wild, you will thoroughly enjoy this adventure-thriller.

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 “Emergency” (2022) on Prime Video: A Unique College Comedy

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

“There’s an unconscious white girl in our living room…”

Emergency (2022) released on Prime Video on May 27th 2022. The dark comedy thriller film stars Donald Elise Watkins, RJ Cyler, Sebastian Chacon, Maddie Nichols, and Sabrina Carpenter. It runs for approximately an hour and forty-five minutes.

College roommates are forced to put their night of partying on hold when they discover an unconscious girl in their living room.  

Here is the trailer:

Emergency is smart and funny with a resonating message at its core. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Prime Video

Not your average college comedy…

This film definitely had some Superbad and Booksmart vibes, but it also managed to step away from these films. It found its own voice and also created an important conversation worth having. There was an interesting balance going on, but I think that it worked in the film’s favor. It was mostly a comedy, but it also tackled issues of race, social class, and police profiling.

Fun cast!

I thought the performances were really solid in this one and Sebastian Chacon was on another level of funny. You really believed that these three were friends, which helped me connect to the movie that much more. There were some laugh-out-loud moments, but there were also some really heartfelt and emotional ones as well, so it was important to witness believable performances and I think that we did.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Prime Video

Takes a while to get going…

Even though I enjoyed this film, I thought the second half was much stronger than the first. This film was a little slow at times and I think it struggled with its identity as well. I appreciated that it was trying to do something different here, which made it stand out from other films in this genre, but it needed to work on the execution a little more to make everything that much more seamless.

I also thought the tagline was a little confusing. It was advertised as “it’s not what it looks like,” but I’m not sure that this was very fitting after watching it…

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Prime Video

I’m in!

Overall, this film was very entertaining with lots of layers. The ending was done very well and the performances were convincing and powerful.

Spoiler-Free Review of “Stranger Things” Season 4 Volume 1 on Netflix: Delivers with 80’s horror vibe

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

“What have you done?”

Stranger Things season four (volume 1) premiered on Netflix on May 27th 2022 with seven new episodes available to stream now. The final two episodes of the season will air on July 1st 2022. The sci-fi horror series stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Sadie Sink, Joe Keery, Maya Hawke, and Natalia Dyer. Each episode runs for approximately 65-75 minutes.

It’s Spring Break in the town of Hawkins, but our beloved group encounters a new nightmarish threat targeting local teens.

Here is the trailer:

Stranger Things season four is more mature in a lot of ways, channeling classic 80’s horror films like A Nightmare on Elm Street and Hellraiser, while giving us plenty of reveals to be excited about. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Dark fast-paced plot.

Our characters have grown up a lot so it makes sense for the plot to mature as well. I absolutely loved the 80’s horror vibe. We got a great cameo/small role that furthered some of these similarities even more and the dark and twisted story really was quite frightening this time around.

I loved every second of it!

Standout episodes: 4 and 7!

Images courtesy of Netflix

Supporting characters get their chance to shine!

I appreciated that we took some time for each character on the series to get some well deserved screen time. There’s a lot of characters and a lot of subplots going on, but the longer episodes actually helped us catch up with all of them. The new characters really added something as well.

Standout performance goes to Sadie Sink as Max. Wow, she was absolutely incredible! I’m really glad we got a chance to see her character develop more.

The Nancy and Robin adventures were pure entertainment and the other characters had plenty of fantastic moments as well.

I would have liked for Erica to have gotten some more screen time, however.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Netflix

I have to wait until July to watch the last two episodes…

Seriously, that’s my only con. I love this series so much and I think that season 4 has been absolutely incredible so far. I can’t wait to see how it all ends!

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Netflix

I’m in 100 percent!!!!!

Dark, twisted, and so much fun to watch! Season 4 has been absolutely incredible so far and I highly recommend it!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Borrego” on Netflix: Lucy Hale’s latest thriller

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

“I can take you wherever you need to go…”

Borrego premiered on Netflix on May 14th 2022, but was originally released in January 2022. The survival thriller film stars Lucy Hale, Nicholas Gonzalez, Leynar Gomez, and Olivia Trujillo. It runs for an hour and forty-two minutes.

A botanist named Elly is studying plants alone in the desert when she witnesses a drug mule’s plane crash. Elly is kidnapped and forced to journey through the desert to the drop off location as she fights to stay alive.

Here is the trailer:

Borrego has plenty of intense moments built in with a believable performance from Lucy Hale, but does it do enough to earn a a watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Lucy Hale gives it her all.

Look, I’ll pretty much watch Lucy Hale in anything. I love her as an actress and I think she does really well in horror and thriller films. This film is no exception. Lucy was terrific as Elly. I really liked Elly as a character as well, which made it easy to root for her during this ordeal.

Not your average survival thriller…

Elly is in a very dangerous situation and you would think it would be easy to pinpoint the bad guys in this, but there was also a lot of heart in this one. I kind of liked this approach and I thought it helped the movie stand out from other similar plots.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Unsure of its intention…

The beginning of the film presented us with a statement about drug use and trafficking, but it didn’t really follow through on this. This made it feel out of place and odd. I wasn’t really sure of the intention of this movie, but I think it tried to tackle too many different issues without ever really paying enough attention to any of them to have them resonate with the audience…

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Netflix

I’m in about 75 percent…

I enjoyed my watch for the most part. I thought Lucy Hale was captivating, but there was something missing in this one, even though it made a valiant effort to stand out as a survival thriller film.

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

Best,

Amy Koto, TV Fanatic Girl

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.

Spoiler-Free Review of “Shark Bait” (2022) on Demand: Playing Chicken with Jet Skis may not be the best idea…

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

“Jet skis?!”

Shark Bait released on demand on May 13th 2022. The survival horror film stars Holly Earl, Catherine Hannay, and Jack Trueman. It runs for approximately an hour and twenty-five minutes.

A group of friends steal a couple of jet skis, but end up stranded in the middle of the ocean after colliding into one another, now stalked by a shark.

Here is the trailer:

Shark Bait is the latest shark film entry, but does it have enough bite to provide us with some real entertainment? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Vertical Entertainment

Doesn’t take too long for things to happen…

This movie was a quick watch and I was very happy that it didn’t take too long for things to happen. We didn’t get too much set-up and once everyone was in the water, our toothy friend decided to make his first appearance early. After watching The Requin, this was a very nice change of pace and it worked in the film’s favor. After all, we’re watching this for the shark action…

Images courtesy of Vertical Entertainment

Fun premise and some intense moments.

I don’t know about you, but this premise was a dream come true for me. We got a bunch of spring breaker type teens playing chicken with stolen jet skis, which made it easy to root for the shark in this one…

There were a lot of intense moments and even though we got the typical waiting around for the shark to pick them off one by one formula, there was plenty of action to keep me invested from start to finish.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Vertical Entertainment

Superficial characters and a predictable formula…

We didn’t get much character development here and I didn’t really care about the characters. It was easy to pick out who would potentially survive and the film followed the same formula as The Requin and Great White in a lot of ways. Instead of a floating villa or a raft, we got a jet ski, but the plot was basically the same. That being said, I love shark films so this will never get old for me…

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Vertical Entertainment

I’m in!!!

Shark Bait was a lot of fun!

Our toothy friend got lots of screen time and there were actually some edge-of-your-seat moments throughout the film that made this an entertaining watch. If you enjoy shark films, you’ll have a blast watching this one.

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

Spoiler-Free Review of “Welcome to Eden” on Netflix: The Price of Exclusivity

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

“I can help you be happy…”

Welcome to Eden (Bienvenidos a Edén) premiered on Netflix on May 6th 2022 with eight episodes available to stream now. The Spanish thriller series stars Amaia Aberasturi, Belinda, Amaia Salamanca, and Sergio Momo. Each episode runs for approximately 40-45 minutes.

After being invited to an exclusive party on a remote island, Zoa and four others are left behind, as they soon start to realize that this may have been intentional.

Here is the trailer:

Welcome to Eden has a killer premise and an attractive cast, but does it do enough to find its own identity separate from shows like The WildsLet’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Guilty pleasure worthy.

This series was a lot of fun. I loved the party in the beginning and even though it’s a plot I’ve seen before, there was still enough happening to draw me in. The next time you get some mystery invite to a remote island, you may want to think twice…

Twists and reveals worth sticking around for.

I didn’t start to really connect to this series until about episode four. Once I got there, I was completely hooked and I had to know what happened next. It was fun figuring out who I could trust and who was a potential villain.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Netflix

The characters needed more development…

This series reminded me a lot of The Wilds and Nine Perfect Strangers except it was missing some real character development. We got some sprinkles of it here and there, but a lot of it felt really superficial. 

I also thought that the thrilling moments needed to be coated with more edge. I wanted this series to be a little bit more brutal and dangerous than it was. It was still an enjoyable guilty pleasure watch, but it had the potential to be a lot more.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Netflix

I’m in!!!!

This series was so addicting and a lot of fun. It may have been a bit outrageous and silly at times, but if you enjoy guilty pleasure thrillers, then you’re in the right place!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Men” (2022) in Theaters: What did I just watch?

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

“What do you want from me?”

Men (2022) premiered in theaters on May 20th 2022. The folk horror film stars Jessie Buckley, Rory Kinnear, Paapa Essiedu, and Gayle Rankin. It runs for an hour and forty minutes.

After dealing with a tragedy, Harper decides to vacation at a home in the countryside, but feels like she is being stalked by someone in the woods.

Here is the trailer:

Men is trippy and unsettling involving some extreme body horror, but is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of A24

Creepy and unsettling…

There are some genuinely creepy and disturbing moments throughout this film. The choice of setting was a good one and I was already terrified of the woods prior to watching this. There was an eerie quality lingering in the background even when things were developing in the beginning of the film from the music to the moments of complete silence.

Convincing performances…

This film involved a small cast, but the performances were really well done. I wanted to know more about our main character but I still believed the trauma and pain she was going through and I thought that she was a strong lead for the most part. The “men” of the film really nailed the creepy vibe…almost to another level…

The Cons:

Images courtesy of A24

Over complicates things…

Like to the extreme! I understood a lot of the religious imagery, but by the time I got to the end of this movie, I had no idea what I had just watched. I had to look up several interpretations just to understand it and while a lot of it kind of made sense, I just thought it was too out there. Sometimes less is more and I much preferred the first half of the film.

There is also some disturbing body horror involved in this one. I don’t recommend having a meal while watching it…

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of A24

I’m 50/50 on this one…

The film has some disturbing moments and some chilling performances, but I was so confused by the ending and I felt like I had to work too hard just to understand what was going on, which made it a lot less entertaining for me. I’m sure some people will love how weird and bizarre it is, but it was not really for me.

Spoiler-Free Review of “Angelyne” on Peacock: Emmy Rossum is Mesmerizing!

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

“I am not a woman…I am an icon.”

Angelyne premiered on Peacock on May 19th 2022 with five episodes available to stream now. The drama series based on a true story stars Emmy Rossum, Max Allen, Martin Freeman, and Hamish Linklater. Each episode runs for approximately 45-48 minutes.

We learn about the mysterious Angelyne and how she rose to fame by appearing on billboards in the 1980’s.

Here is the trailer:

Angelyne uses a fake documentary style to tell the story of this female icon with a talented lead and a fascinating story. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Angelyne Spoiler Free 1

Images courtesy of Peacock

All hail Emmy Rossum!

I am already a huge fan of Emmy Rossum and she is the main reason why I tuned into this series, but wow did she surprise me with her performance! She completely transformed herself. She was so convincing and captivating on screen. The rest of the cast did a decent job as well, but she was the star for good reason and she did such a brilliant job with her portrayal. I think she honestly deserves an Emmy nomination.

Stunning!

Fun vignette style.

I really loved the way the episodes were done. Each episode told a different part of the story with someone who was a part of Angelyne’s life at one point or another. It was interesting seeing different perspectives. The episodes were light and fun, but they also covered some emotional content as well. I liked that the episodes didn’t reveal too much and let the audience decide who was telling the truth. It paid respect to the real Angelyne, maintaining her mysterious allure.

The Cons:

Angelyne Spoiler Free 2

I wanted more!

Normally I like seeing only five or six episodes in a series so that I can get through it quickly. However, when this limited series ended, I immediately wanted more! I became a fan and now I want to see more adventures involving Angelyne!

So am I in or out?
