Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 15: “The Dying of the Light”

Happy Saturday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 15, I learned that “war is a failure of everything,” but is there a difference between a war and a test? We’re coming to the end now, but who will make it out alive?

Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 15, “The Dying of the Light,” Clarke teams up with Octavia to rescue Madi. Meanwhile, Murphy and Raven work together to try and save Emori.

Another emotional episode that still has me in tears…

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 15 are:

5

“Let’s do it.”

The 100 season 7 episode 15 Octavia and Clarke 1

Clarke and Octavia don’t waste any time after Madi willingly transports herself to the Disciples. I have always liked the Clarke and Octavia duo, but this might be their toughest challenge yet.

They have both faced so much and yet they are still being tested again and again.

I still feel like Clarke will be the one to take the final test for humanity, but one should never discount Octavia Blake, who has one of the most developed and interesting character arcs I have ever witnessed on a show.

4

“Everyone I love dies.”

Literally everyone featured in this episode takes a few minutes to reflect on how many loved ones they have lost. Clarke reveals that if she loses Madi, she will have nothing and be nothing.

Clarke has always risked it all to save everyone else, but what happens when she has nothing left to live for?

Is it possible for the test to reset everything or is everything final? We’ll have to wait and see, but I have to imagine that there is some kind of happy ending waiting for Clarke Griffin.

She deserves it after all she has been through…

3

“We need a distraction.”

Sheidheda is finally put to good use when Clarke and Octavia arrive. They recognize that they can’t rush in to save Madi with guns blazing and make a deal with Sheidheda. Sheidheda releases some of his fury on the Disciples and shows off just how terrifying and ruthless he can be.

He has made an exit for now, but it’s only a matter of time before he shows up again to create some more drama.

2

“You choose everyone.”

After the explosion, Memori gets pinned under some rubble and has a wound that is bleeding out quickly. Murphy and Raven work with Jackson to save Emori’s life, but she is running out of time.

Memori has some heartwarming words that really got to me. I seriously cannot handle another loss like this as I am still not fully recovered over what happened to Bellamy.

Raven’s friendship with both Murphy and Emori is so beautiful and she does everything in her power to get her friend back to Sanctum so Jackson can operate on her. However, Emori tells Raven to choose everyone, recognizing that Murphy will not be able to make the difficult choice.

Raven convinces her that she can save her and the rest of the world and if there is anyone I am putting my faith in…it’s Raven Reyes.

Hang on Emori!

1

“I’m right here.”

After Madi’s valiant attempt to deal with Bill’s memory machine, she suffers from a massive stroke and is essentially brain dead. Octavia and a heartbroken Clarke find her. She is breathing, but Levitt says that it is not recoverable.

Octavia refuses to let Clarke live with this and tells her that she will be the one to end Madi’s life. She reminds Clarke that Madi can hear her, as Clarke sings to her.

Before Octavia can pull the trigger, Levitt explains that Bill retrieved the memory he needed and Clarke realizes that she cannot let Bill be the one to take the test for all of humanity.

She promises Madi that she will make this right and be back for her, as the episode ends with Madi shedding a single tear that had me sobbing uncontrollably.

Seriously, I don’t know if I can handle any more heartbreak on this show. 

One more episode left.

How will it end?

May we meet again…

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 14: “A Sort of Homecoming”

Happy Saturday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 14, I learned that sometimes you are meant to wind up exactly where you started. So, do you take the fresh start or head back into the heart of unknown destruction?

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 14, “A Sort of Homecoming,” Clarke and the others are reunited back on Earth, but not everyone is ready to leave the people of Sanctum behind. Meanwhile, Sheidheda strikes a deal with Bill that endangers Madi and everyone attempts to cope with an unspeakable loss.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 14 are:

5

“I killed him…I had to.”

Clarke doesn’t hold anything back and immediately tells the others that she killed Bellamy. Octavia and Echo tell her that they understand, recognizing that the Bellamy they knew and loved was gone and that the true Bellamy would understand. There is a lot of coping going on in this episode as each character deals with this loss in their own way.

I have to admit that I even shed a tear when we saw Murphy crying, which was extremely emotional for me.

4

“Welcome home.”

When one door closes, another one opens. At least we finally find out where Gaia is and learn that she is alive and well. Phew!

Gaia fills us in on what we’ve missed and everyone is reunited…at least for now.

3

“We were all Blodreina.”

Being back on Earth proves to be difficult for Octavia. Many of her memories come rushing back from her time as Blodreina and we even see a flashback of Kane. Indra reminds Octavia that they were all Blodreina and explains that they will face her demons together, which was a nice sentiment.

2

“I decided for everyone. That’s what I do.”

Madi is upset with Clarke for killing Bellamy to protect her and Clarke breaks down to her and tries to explain that this is what she does. This is not the first time we have seen Clarke carry the weight of the world on her shoulders to protect her friends.

The 100 7 14 Clarke The CW

Images courtesy of The CW

She makes the hard decisions so that they don’t have to, but this was probably the most difficult one of her life. 

That being said, let’s hope it was worth it…

1

“No one else is dying to save me.”

After making a deal with Bill, Sheidheda is somehow still OK to continue to annoy us and goes after Madi, revealing what he knows about her memories. Clarke realizes that she is in danger, desperately trying to find her before it is too late.

Madi is actually taking a minute to enjoy herself, learning piano from Gabriel, which was a sweet moment.

The 100 7 14 Gabriel and Madi The CW

Images courtesy of The CW

Unfortunately the moment is short-lived, as Gabriel is stabbed by invisible Sheidheda. Gabriel dies trying to save Madi and Sheidheda manages to go through the anomaly after getting quite the beat down from the incredible Indra and Gaia tag team.

Madi refuses to let anyone else die because of her and uses the knife to transport herself to Bill before Clarke can stop her. Then, we get more visitors and some kind of cave-in like explosion that could potentially trap or endanger Memori…don’t even get me started on that.

We know that Clarke has always been trying to protect her daughter, but Madi is capable of true leadership and strength and perhaps Clarke needs to have faith in her.

Only two episodes left!

May we meet again.

Rest in peace, Gabriel.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 13: “Blood Giant”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 13, I am left in complete shock. We learned that “the path of the prophet is always hard,” but wow…seriously I still haven’t even dealt with what I just watched.

Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 13, “Blood Giant,” Clarke realizes that she has walked into quite the mess, but the Disciples are only interested in obtaining the key. Meanwhile, we get some character reunions, a timely release of the killer bug toxin, and a shocking demise that I never saw coming.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 13 are:

5

“Here’s my proposal…”

Bill and The Disciples don’t want to be bothered with whatever primitive nonsense Sheidheda is leading and they make a proposal. Bill wants to go on his way and get the hell off his planet, explaining that Sheidheda can then do whatever he wants.

To show he means business, his invisible guards easily take out Sheidheda’s men and wound him, reminding us who the bigger threat is here.

We also finally get a mention of Gaia, as everyone knows that she is not where she is supposed to be. I guess we’ll catch up with her soon, but at least everyone is on the same page now.

4

“Two bugs with one stone.”

I don’t know who comes up with the timing on this show, but while everything is going on, the toxins and killer bugs are also released with the red sun. Remember that? The bugs try to eat your face and the toxins cause our characters to see deadly hallucinations.

Luckily Emori comes up with a plan to keep the bugs out and has really stepped up as a hero. Just think about how far her character has come. The selfish cutthroat is now a leader and a really good one. Plus, she’s just so incredibly cute with Murphy!

Maybe at least we will get one happy ending for one of our ships…

3

“It’s good to be back.”

The 100 seaosn 7 episode 13 The CW 2

Josephine is back. Well, sort of. As the toxins leak into the air, Gabriel gets infected and begins having hallucinations of Josephine. She tries to talk him into volunteering as tribute to be the one to “save the world,” but he has a change of heart at the last second and destroys the flame.

See ya, Josephine!

2

“You live with what you’ve done.”

The 100 season 7 episode 13 The CW

Images courtesy of The CW

We get several character reunions during this episode. Clarke is reunited with Madi and Raven and Murphy manage to make us laugh quite a few times to give us some nostalgia. However, I kept getting the feeling that a main character was about to die and it seemed like all signs were pointing to Raven.

As Raven enters the reactor, her guilt and remorse eat away at her. Nikki shows up and threatens to kill her, but Raven admits that what she did was wrong and tells her she understands.

However, Nikki decides to actually let Raven live, which really threw me for a loop. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore Raven Reyes, but I thought she was the character to go.

In order for The 100 to truly reach its peak as we approach the series finale in a few episodes, someone has to go.

So if not Raven, then who?

Even Indra gets her shot at ending Sheidheda’s life and decides to let him just bleed out, refusing to waste any more time on him.

And here we go…

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD…

1

“I said I wouldn’t lose anyone else…”

After the flame is destroyed, the anomaly is opened by Bill and Clarke demands that he take them to their missing friends. Bill agrees, but Bellamy is still heartbroken after losing his Disciple friend.

He tries to tell Clarke that he has been trying to save them all, but she doesn’t want to hear it and tells him, “so much for together.”

Sheidheda continues to be the worm that he is and points Bellamy to the book that would expose Madi. We know that Clarke will do anything to protect her daughter, but Bellamy tries to reason with her.

In a completely shocking and heartbreaking moment, Clarke tells Bellamy she is sorry too and shoots and kills Bellamy.

We get a final shot of his lifeless body to confirm that Bellamy Blake is actually dead this time.

The 100 season 7 episode 13 The CW Bellamy Blake

Images courtesy of The CW

There’s no question about it, Bellamy Blake is dead. He is the main character to go, but I have a lot of mixed feelings on this one.

First off, why did we waste so much time on thinking he was dead to find out that he was actually alive for us to get to this moment? It really angered me.

Not only will I not get the Bellarke moment I have been dreaming of, but now even the idea of Bellarke has been shattered.

Lexa was shot and now Bellamy was shot. There is some poetry here for sure.

I guess I want to see what the point of this was. Has Clarke actually achieved what Bellamy was trying to do? Perhaps Clarke has been the prophet this entire time and did what was necessary to protect what she believes in, which Bellamy had been struggling with for the past few episodes.

This just proves more and more that Clarke is the ultimate key and I have to imagine that she will be the one to step up to the test for all of humanity.

May we meet again.

Rest in peace, Bellamy Blake. My soul is shattered.

Ranking the “I Know What You Did Last Summer” movies from Best to Worst

“What you waiting for, huh? What are you waiting for?!”

I Know What You Did Last Summer 4

Images courtesy of Showtime

A question that all fans of IKWYDLS know all too well. The popular film franchise is based on the book by Lois Duncan, which I actually read before I saw the first film. If you haven’t read it yet, I definitely recommend it. Things happen differently in the book, which may allow some of your favorite characters to get some deserved redemption.

When I think about 90’s slasher movies, I automatically jump to films like Scream, IKWYDLS and Urban Legend. They are fun, entertaining, and they keep you on the edge of your seat. Humor and teen drama weaves its way in while we witness some pretty intense scares as well.

I was super excited that Showtime added the IKWYDLS films to its lineup, which gave me a chance to catch up on all three films. Yes, there are three films…we’ll get to that later. The deadly fisherman with a hook for a hand becomes all too real after four friends make a fatal mistake that will haunt them forever…or at least for the next few summers.

Please note some spoilers are ahead.

Without any further delay, let’s find out exactly how I ranked the I Know What You Did Last Summer films and why.

1

I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)

I Know What You Did Last Summer 1

Images courtesy of Showtime

The original film is the best one by a landslide. Released in 1997, it stars Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Ryan Phillippe.

There is something really unsettling about this film in all the right ways. The villain is truly terrifying, the music is creepy, and some of the scares still haunt me till now. Seriously, I check my closet every single night before I got to sleep because of what happened to poor Helen (SMG).

I Know What You Did Last Summer 2

Images courtesy of Showtime

The characters are far from perfect. They make a terrible mistake that comes back to haunt them. The killer doesn’t just want to eliminate them…he wants to mess with them and make them question everything and everyone around them.

Standout Death: 

Spoiler alert. Do not read if you have not seen this movie!

I Know What You Did Last Summer 5

Images courtesy of Showtime

Helen Shivers played by Sarah Michelle Gellar had the potential to be a fantastic Final Girl, but Julie James took that crown. However, her chase scene leading to her tragic death may be one of my favorite scenes in any slasher movie. I was rooting for her the entire time and the film really shook things up by killing her off. I’m still mad about it…

2

I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (1998)

I Still Know What You Did Last Summer 1

The sequel is really not that bad. Released in 1998, it stars Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze Jr., Brandy, and Mekhi Phifer. Julie James is back and wins a trip to the Bahamas with her roommate, Karla. Julie and Ray are on the rocks, but luckily our favorite fisherman shows up in a few clutch moments.

While some of this movie is slightly outrageous, we do get some fun characters, including one played by Jack Black. We witness a fun karaoke performance, a tanning bed nightmare, and a lot of rain to really add to the ambiance.

I Still Know What You Did Last Summer 3

Plus, there is a pretty big twist at the end which did help things.

Standout Death: 

I Still Know What You Did Last Summer 5

Images courtesy of Showtime

Not a death scene, but the tanning bed scene does come to mind. Julie decides to try and relax, but the killer locks the tanning bed, which is beyond terrifying.

3

I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer (2006)

I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer

Images courtesy of Showtime

So, I had no idea for the longest time that this film even existed and after watching it, I know why. The film was released in 2006 and it stars Brooke Nevin, David Paetkau, and Torrey DeVito. None of the original cast appear in this film although we do get a brief mention about what happened to them when the new characters are researching our infamous fisherman killer, Ben Willis.

The beginning of this film is actually kind of interesting. The group of friends decide to play a prank on everyone that actually ends up deadly and they try to cover it up.

That’s pretty much the only interesting part of the movie. The acting is horrible, the kills are gory, but eh, and the twist at the end is so ridiculous that you may think you actually fell asleep during the movie. I won’t reveal the twist here, but wow…and not in a good way.

Standout Death: 

The tractor scene comes to mind, but honestly nothing really sticks out on this one.

I almost wish this movie had come out with a different name. It really doesn’t do the franchise any favors.

While there have been talks about an IKWYDLS television series, I haven’t seen too much on this. I would honestly love to see IKWYDLS take a page out of Scream’s book and give us a film with the original characters while introducing us to a new set of potential victims. Maybe Ben’s son had a son…or daughter? Just a thought…

Which I Know What You Did Last Summer films did YOU enjoy most?

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on the IKWYDLS films in the comments section below. Thank you so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 12: “The Stranger”

Happy Monday TV fans! After finally watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 12, I learned that sometimes we need to ask ourselves: “Is the thing you believe in really that important?”

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 12, “The Stranger,” Sheidheda continues to force the people of Sanctum to kneel, but Memori takes matters into their own hands. Meanwhile, Bellamy tries to figure out a way to save his friends while still maintaining his new beliefs.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 12 are:

5

“Welcome to new Sanctum.”

Let’s be honest. I don’t think that Sanctum has had a drama-free moment since our favorite characters arrived here, but things are taking a turn for the worse under Sheidheda’s rule.

He wipes out the Children of Gabriel after they refuse to kneel to him, reminding everyone that he means business.

The 100 7 12 1 Memori

Luckily, Indra, Emori, and Murphy are working together to keep innocents safe and hidden, but it’s only a matter of time before their secret is unraveled…

4

“Who the hell are you?”

After getting over the initial shock of Bellamy being alive, Echo takes a moment to ask him what’s really going on. Bellamy wants to figure out a way to fix the flame because he knows it is the only way to save his friends, but sooner or later…he’s going to have to make a choice.

The 100 7 12 2 Becho
Images courtesy of The CW

Let’s just hope it’s the right one.

3

“She did it to save your soul.”

We get several heart-to-heart talks during this episode, but Hope is really taking her mother’s death hard. Jordan sheds some light and proves to be a good listener. Diyoza’s sacrifice was to protect her daughter, but Hope needs to find the strength within her to help save her friends.

I have a feeling that she is going to be extremely important at the end of all of this. And let’s not forget about Octavia and Clarke’s talk about family. I keep getting the feeling that someone else is about to die…

2

“I’m proud of you Murphy.”

There is still a lot of setup around Murphy’s character development. We know that he has embraced his heroic side, but it’s making me wonder if he will be the main character to die. He has done so much and now he is revealing a truly selfless side.

The 100 7 12 3 The CW
Images courtesy of The CW

Sheidheda finds the hiding spot and holds Murphy captive, as they continue their complicated game of chess, but is his life in real danger here?

I think it’s time for him to get some serious backup…

1

“What the hell happened here?”

A good question for sure. After Clarke is tortured to extract her memories, Bellamy realizes that he may be out of chances to save her and his friends. When Clarke’s friends are threatened, she agrees to bring the Disciples to the flame, but he first sends her friends through the anomaly to an unknown planet.

I have a feeling they will finally meet up with Gaia here, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Meanwhile, Clarke goes through the anomaly to Sanctum with Bill and the others and Murphy is beyond thrilled to see her. However, Clarke has certainly walked into quite the mess.

I think another war is about to begin…

May we meet again.

Stay tuned! New episodes return September 9th 2020!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 11: “What happened to Bellamy?”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After finally watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 11, we were left with an important dilemma: “all alive, but just out of reach…” Sometimes we need to channel a strength we never even knew existed to survive, but do we lose everyone we love in the process?

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 11, “Etherea,” we finally find out exactly what happened to Bellamy. Bellamy is back and it’s about time. Meanwhile, Clarke decides what to do next to help save her friends.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 11 are:

5

“No one is coming to save us…”

Even though Levitt has now discovered that Bellamy is in fact alive, he is a little bit out of reach. Good thing Bellamy Blake always has a plan. When Bellamy gets blasted by the anomaly, he winds up in Etherea with the Disciple control room conductor. Bellamy is forced to work with his enemy in order to find a way off this planet, but working together may not be so easy…

The 100 7 11 1 The CW

Either way…Bellamy Blake is alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4

“It doesn’t bring peace.”

Bellamy brushes up on his reading since there is a lot of time to pass and learns a lot about the Disciples and their beliefs. He thinks that the Cave of Ascent is far-fetched, but his enemy continues to enlighten him, explaining that they both have a purpose that is bigger than them.

Bellamy doesn’t think that one can achieve transcendence through war, but he certainly has a lot to think about.

3

“Love is not the problem. It’s how you love that is.”

Bellamy continues to hold on to his love for his family and friends, but he is warned that this is selfish love and that the Disciples love all mankind and do what is necessary for the good of the many.

We get several hints about a “leap of faith” along the way and after Bellamy is saved from the brutal storm by his enemy, they actually find the “Cave of Ascent.” Bellamy finally lets his guard down and prays with his enemy and ends up seeing his mother, who acts as a guide for him during this other state of mind or hallucination.

2

“This is our only chance…”

I almost felt like I was re-watching Game of Thrones with Jon Snow climbing the wall. This episode brought back all those feels, as Bellamy and the Disciple embark on a dangerous journey of their own up the wall.

The 100 7 11 3
Images courtesy of The CW

I have to admit I was on the edge of my seat for this one as well. When Bellamy gets to the top, they are able to access the anomaly, but have to literally take a leap of faith to reach the bridge.

And of course, we have Bill waiting for him on the other side…

1

“Bellamy?”

So, we welcome back Bellamy and he immediately kneels to Bill. I was hoping that this would just be another long con (taking a play out of Echo’s book), but now I’m not so sure.

At the very end of the episode, Bellamy is reunited with his friends and we focus in on Octavia, Echo, and Clarke, who are beyond shocked to see him.

We get a small Bellarke moment, as Clarke rushes over to hug him, whispering that she no longer has the flame (the key) and that they’ll figure something out.

However, Bellamy turns around and betrays her, revealing exactly what she said to Bill.

The 100 7 11 4
Images courtesy of The CW

So, has Bellamy truly become a believer or not? In the beginning of this post, I mentioned that Bellamy always has a plan so I’d like to believe that there is a way out of this, but he also went through some crazy near death trippy stuff during his journey.

Maybe, it’s going to take family to bring him back since the hallucination of his mother lured him into this mess.

Octavia, you’re up!

I thought this episode was so incredibly well done and we finally got to confirm that Bellamy is actually alive. Now, we need to do something about him being brainwashed…

Bellarke fans, let’s hope that we can get more than an embrace…soon! We’re running out of time!

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 10: “A Little Sacrifice”

Happy Monday TV fans! After finally watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 10, I learned that “every war seems like the last one…until the next.”

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 10, “A Little Sacrifice,” we meet up with Clarke in present time, as answers are revealed about the end of the world. Meanwhile, Memori risks it all to help others in need and Indra faces off against Sheidheda.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 10 are:

5

“You want my help? Earn it.”

Clarke is the queen of bad-ass quotes on this show and I was happy to finally witness some well deserved screen time for her. We have been jumping all over the map and through time, so it was nice to finally allow our main character to step up to the plate…especially since she is the key to everything.

Clarke is concerned when Echo, Diyoza, and Octavia say that they are committed to the cause and demands to know what has been done to them. She wants to get everyone off the planet and back to Sanctum, but that’s easier said than done.

4

“I think you’re becoming someone worth believing in.”

I think it’s safe to say that John Murphy has been transforming into the hero we all knew he could be for quite some time, but it was definitely a sweet moment to hear Emori say this. Murphy realizes that they will be risking their lives to help the people of Sanctum, but the selfish cockroach has shed that former life and is now embracing his heroic side.

Gotta say that it’s great to see our hero shining!

“Single combat!”

The showdown we have been waiting for has finally arrived, as Sheidheda and Indra fight for leadership over their people. Sheidheda wants everyone to kneel to him, but Indra shows off some bad-ass fighting skills to protect her people.

Only it doesn’t go so well for Indra, but Madi steps in to save her. Indra wants to protect Madi and promises to kneel to Sheidheda if he spares her. There has to be a way to stop this guy…

“This is not what Bellamy would have wanted…”

Good news…Echo isn’t brainwashed after all! She has a plan and she helps Hope break out so that they can all get the hell off this planet. Echo is willing to sacrifice herself, but Raven is the one who ends up talking her out of it.

We get several discussions about Bellamy throughout the episode, which certainly hints at the idea of him still being alive…we’ll get to that later.

“Be better than me.”

Things then get a little bit crazy when Hope decides to kill Anders, ready to sacrifice herself instead, but Diyoza refuses to let that happen and catches the droplet in the nick of time.

Hope watches in horror as Diyoza dies in front of them. Diyoza reminds her to be better than her. This was heartbreaking to see, but I had already prepared myself for this possible outcome. I sort of already thought that Diyoza was gone in the prior season so when she came back now it made sense to use her as a plot device to allow Hope a second chance.

That being said, this moment was still incredibly heartbreaking to watch…

This was another great episode and it looks like the spoiler is out of the bag for next week’s episode, revealing that SPOILER ALERT…Bellamy is still alive. I thought so!

**Well, this could just be revealing what happened to Bellamy before he ended up in present time so he could still be dead, but I’m remaining optimistic and screen time for Bellamy is a very good thing!

So, where is Bellamy and when is he? Is Gaia in the same place? What’s going on with this code and the test for humanity?

Still so many questions, but I’m hooked for sure!

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the “Scream” movies from Best to Worst

“What’s YOUR favorite scary movie?”

A timeless question for sure and the start of it all in the popular Scream franchise. With Courtney Cox’s recent announcement about confirming her role in Scream 5, I thought it would the perfect time to re-visit the other Scream films and rank them from best to worst.

There’s just something about Scream. It has it all. It nails the comedy, it gives us plenty of slasher horror scares, and it is just one of those movies you can watch over and over again. Trust me, it would alarm you how much I have actually watched these movies…

Please note some spoilers are ahead.

Without any further delay, let’s find out exactly how I ranked the Scream films and why.

1

Scream (1996)

The original film is the best one by far. It is actually my favorite movie of all time and I think that it really set the bar for slasher movies in the 90’s and the early 2000’s. The opening scene was so shocking the first time I watched it. I remember thinking that Drew Barrymore was going to be the star of the movie and then so much for that.

However, Neve Campbell was the perfect Final Girl as Sidney Prescott. I pretty much loved every single character in this movie and I still think that Tatum deserved better.

Matthew Lillard and Skeet Ulrich also made quite the tag team and I will be forever woozy watching them.

There’s just something about the original movie that stands the test of time for me. I find something new every single time I watch it and I am so impressed by all of the clever Easter eggs and references sprinkled in to give fans a sense of nostalgia while creating something iconic at the same time.

Standout Death: 

Drew’s shocking demise in the opening scene of the movie is probably one of the most brutal and violent deaths. It still upsets me when I watch it now, but Tatum’s encounter with the garage door was also really memorable.

I mean, she did want to be in the sequel…

2

Scream 2 (1997)

The sequel actually really holds up. There is even a hilarious class discussion where sequels come up. It’s hard to live up to the original, but Scream 2 does a fantastic job of keeping up the pace.

We get a new environment for Sidney in this film. She’s in college now, which was a welcomed change as we got to meet new characters and say hello to some familiar faces as well. A copy cat killer is on the loose with the release of the movie, “Stab,” which actually ends up starring Tori Spelling. Well played!

There is a sense of maturity in the second film and some shocking reveals as well. Mickey, the creepy film student played by Timothy Olyphant, is a welcomed addition. We get a roommate for Sidney, a boyfriend, and some sorority sisters thrown into the mix. The second film really doesn’t hold anything back and wasn’t afraid to kill off a main character…even though I wish he would have stuck around.

Standout Death: 

Sarah Michelle Gellar’s demise was unfortunate, but this scene was pretty epic. I still yell at the television screen and tell her to use her Slayer strength, but SMG doesn’t always luck out in horror movies…

We still love seeing her anyway though!

3

Scream 4 (2011)

It’s been quite some time since we checked in on Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, but Ghostface is back and ready to shed some new blood. We get a new set of characters in the fourth film and are introduced to Sidney’s cousin, Jill, played by Emma Roberts.

As the familiar kills return, everyone is danger…including Sidney. We get a shocking twist in this film that made it worth the watch and a lesson about not “fucking with the original.” Well said!

Standout Death: 

The word “clear” comes to mind for sure. Jill’s death was quite “shocking.” I also thought that Kirby deserved a lot better and really showed off her knowledge about horror films. There are some theories floating around that she could still be alive (similar to Stu) since we never actually saw her dead, but either way, she deserved better!

4

Scream 3 (2000)

Yeah, so on to the third film. It is my least favorite in the franchise. Courtney Cox’s micro bangs may have been the real horror of this film, but the third film always just fell a little flat. Part of that probably has a lot to do with the change in writer, but Scream 3 does have some entertaining moments.

I loved that we were able to see Randy on video with his rules about trilogies…even though Scream moved past the three films. There are some comedic moments between Gale and fake Gale along with Dewey, but the film just didn’t have the same balance of comedy and slasher fun that I was accustomed to.

Standout Death: 

The explosion killing Tom was kind of shocking, but overall the death scenes were all just kind of okay in this movie…

Overall, the Scream franchise is iconic for me and it always will be. Let’s not forget that we also got a short-lived television series on MTV. The first two seasons were actually pretty decent, but the third one was all over the map. However, I do know some fans who actually enjoyed it and there were some fun cameos.

Scream 5 is looking to release some time in 2021, which would be the 25th anniversary of the films. I am looking forward to seeing it, but I also think that we need to shake things up and kill off another main character.

Our Final Girl, Sidney Prescott, has certainly been through a lot over the years, but she will continue to be my favorite Final Girl of all time and I will always root for her.

Ranking the Top 5 “Nightmare on Elm Street” Films

One…two…Freddy’s coming for you.

Three…four…better lock your door.

Five…six…grab your crucifix.

Seven…eight…better stay up late.

Nine…ten…never sleep again…

Happy Wednesday TV Fans! With the lack of new programming, I have been re-visiting several film series and I was beyond thrilled to discover that HBO Max has all of the Nightmare on Elm Street films available to watch!

After quite the marathon, I started to think about which films held up and which fell flat. There are 8 NOES films, (not including Freddy vs. Jason) but today I will be ranking my top 5 films of the franchise. Please note that some spoilers are ahead.

Freddy is cool. Freddy is funny and Freddy will give you some nightmare for sure…along with some disturbing images that will forever be embedded in my brain. Robert Englund is absolute perfection as Freddy Krueger and I am a huge fan of Heather Langenkamp as Nancy Thompson. Nancy will always be one of my favorite Final Girls.

After all, she’s into survival…

Whatever you do, don’t fall asleep!

These films really have everything. They are scary, funny, and addicting!

Stars like Johnny Depp, Laurence Fishburne, and Patricia Arquette appear in them as well and we get some pretty unique death and dream sequences that really make the NOES films stand out.

While I thoroughly enjoy the Friday the 13th and Halloween franchises, NOES certainly measures up with these iconic films. After all, Freddy did have an epic showdown with Jason…

Without any further delay, my top 5 Nightmare on Elm Street films are:

5

A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989)

Alice is back in the fifth film and we discover that she is pregnant. However, Freddy is back as well and he begins attacking and killing her friends using her unborn child as a weapon. Alice and Freddy have an epic showdown, as she does everything in her power to eliminate him for good and protect her child.

The fifth film is pretty good. I enjoyed seeing Alice again and I thought the buildup to the showdown was decent.

Standout kill: Poor Greta is what she eats, as she is force fed at the table. Gross!

4

Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994)

Nancy is back! Well, Heather is technically back, but I was excited to see her either way. In this re-imagining of the NOES world, Robert Englund and Heather Langenkamp play themselves, but quickly learn that the world of fantasy may actually cross over into reality.

This movie actually really held up for me. I thought that it was unique and it gave fans a lot of nostalgia. Heather/Nancy even yells out “Screw your pass,” bringing us right back to the original film. While I love the NOES film franchise, the films can become repetitive. However, this film really stood out and did something truly unique and different, which I appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed.

Standout kill: Poor Julie gets tossed and thrown around against the ceiling while Heather’s child watches in horror.

3

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988)

The Dream Warriors are back! But unfortunately, so is Freddy. As he begins to pick off the Dream Warriors one by one, Alice is dragged into this mess when Kristen Parker gives her the power. During Kristen’s fiery death, there is this weird electric blue energy floating around and Alice and Freddy’s abilities overlap.

Freddy collects souls and when he does, Alice begins to inherit a part of them. She starts smoking when she doesn’t smoke, she learns Kung Fu, and she wears a bad-ass leather jacket to prove she is ready to bring down Freddy by forcing him to take a good look in the mirror…

I really enjoy this film and I think it has a fantastic music soundtrack. The kills are really outrageous and Freddy’s humor takes on a life of its own in this one. More please!

Standout kill: Deb’s checkout at the Roach Motel still leaves a bad taste in my mouth…

2

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987)

Nancy is back! After the horrific sequel to the original film, we really needed Dream Warriors and it delivers! In this film, Nancy works as a doctor at a psych ward and helps troubled teens who may be having some fatal nightmares that she is all too familiar with…

Dream Warriors is fantastic. It allows Freddy to truly shine and we also get some interesting concepts on dreams and abilities and powers within them, which I thought was a welcomed and cool feature to prevent the films from becoming too repetitive.

Standout kill: “Welcome to Primetime, bitch” immediately comes to mind…be careful about what you are watching on television!

1

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

The original still remains as the absolute best film of the franchise for me. It really draws you in and the concept of someone killing you in your dreams is so terrifying, really allowing Freddy to reign as a supreme villain.

The characters are absolutely fantastic in this and Nancy really steps into the spotlight as a bad-ass Final Girl. Plus, she’s got her coffee machine ready under the bed! You have to admire her commitment to staying awake!

Standout kills: It’s probably a toss up between Tina being dragged up the wall in the opening scene and Glen getting sucked into his bed.

Overall, I had a blast re-watching these films. I may have some trouble falling asleep now, but it was worth it!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts on the NOES movies and your favorites in the comments section below. Thank you so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 9: “The Flock”

Happy Wednesday TV fans! After finally watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 9, I realized that trust is important. It’s important for one another and it’s important for mankind, but what happens when the people you trust the most turn against you?

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 9, “The Flock,” we catch up with Octavia, Echo, Diyoza, and Hope, as they show us what happened three months prior to being reunited with Clarke. Meanwhile, Murphy and Indra team up with an unlikely ally to stop a hostage situation.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 9 are:

5

“This is all that is left…”

Well, we finally got to see what was behind door number one, as Octavia, Diyoza, Echo, and Hope follow Anders into the elevator three months prior to present day. As they accept their training to become disciples, they quickly learn that they are about to begin fighting an “unwinnable war,” as they now realize that Gabriel actually did save their lives.

The air outside is fatal and the condition of it suggests that perhaps there really will be nothing left at the end of all of this…

Let’s hope not!

4

“She’s brave. I’ll give her that.”

Meanwhile, back on Sanctum, Murphy is dealing with a hostage situation, as Nikki holds Emori and the rest of the people there hostage. Nikki wants Murphy, Russell, and Raven to turn themselves in, but that’s going to be a little difficult to achieve since Raven is currently MIA.

Murphy definitely needs some backup here and luckily Indra hears the special announcement. Perhaps two out of three will satisfy Nikki, but Murphy is not going to leave his Emori behind.

3

“You’ve seen me at my worst…and best.”

I guess we weren’t too far off with the vibes we have been noticing between our girl Octavia and Levitt. Octavia is no stranger to the Romeo and Juliet type of forbidden love, but there is something really sweet and genuine about these two.

Octavia and the others are being told to check their emotions at the door, but it looks like Levitt is under her spell for good now…swoon!

Let’s just hope that Octavia finally gets a happily ever after because she has been through some real heartbreak and I’m not sure I can take much more.

2

“Following rules isn’t how you win a war.”

Well, maybe not, but Echo is tossing all of her emotions out the door. Anders notices that Echo is a model of perfect control and thinks she will be the way they win the war, but has Echo gone too far?

She is basically shedding her soul, but we know that it’s because she can’t process her grief over Bellamy. I just hope she doesn’t end up on a path of destruction because it’s not looking too good for her right now…

Everyone is given a series of tests during their training and the final test basically causes them to sacrifice someone they love for the good of all mankind. Echo passes her test with flying colors along with Diyoza and Octavia, but Hope is not able to do so.

Echo decides her punishment and banishes her to Penance for five years while poor Diyoza holds back her tears. Talk about brutal…

1

“What are subjects without kings?”

Murphy and Indra are forced to team up with Russell Prime (Sheidheda) and I’m not sure that this is really a beautiful friendship, but they have no choice. Murphy admits to everyone that they are not Primes and the truth is finally out in the open.

This leads to a lot of chaos, but luckily Indra shows up with perfect timing to save Murphy from being killed in front of Emori.

Sheidheda is loving the destruction and violence and finally rises as the new king as he slaughters the entire “flock” of people standing before him.

It looks like he is finally unleashing his wrath, but let’s hope that Indra can stop this demon once and for all. I’m rooting for you, Indra!

New episodes return August 5th 2020! Let’s hope we finally get some answers about where Gaia is and Bellamy’s confirmed fate.

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!
