“Bitch, please! You’ve been to space.”

As someone who could be convinced to watch anything Spider-Man related and who has kept up with the MCU all these years, Far From Home was an instalment that I was a little more than excited to see, especially with how good Spidey’s other solo movie – Homecoming – was to watch. While I’m still not one hundred percent sure when I stand with this movie, I did enjoy it and I would probably consider it one of my favourite movies from the MCU so far.

It definitely has the charm we got to see in Homecoming that gives the Spider-Man movies it’s very own vibe to help it stand out a little in a franchise with a lot of other instalments. It doesn’t necessarily hit quite as well as it’s predecessor but the humour is definitely there and it did manage to make me laugh out loud a handful of times in a way that felt incredibly genuine and not forced at all. It also continues to balance its comedic moments with the more serious ones which worked especially well in Far From Home because it follows on from the giant that was Endgame. There was a perfect balance between dealing with the fact this movie follows on from the events of Endgame but yet Far From Home is never overshadowed and instead, is able to grow and become its own thing. Something I appreciated was that we got see how Peter was affected by the things that happened and they never sugar coated it or pretended like it never happened.

Trinkets Season 1 Review [Spoiler Free]

So, starting Trinkets was primarily down to good timing if we’re being honest. I loaded up Netflix with the intention of finding something quick to watch and this show was on the homepage and a trailer for it began to play almost instantly. Now, the trailer alone was enough to get me interested but I also vaguely remembered people talking about it online and the best part was that it’s only 30 minutes (or less) per episode and there’s only 10 of them in total. So not only did it look like it would be a lot of fun but it was also the ‘something quick to watch’ that I had been looking for and I’m so glad I decided to give it a shot.

For anyone who doesn’t know, Trinkets follows three teenagers Elodie (Brianna Hildebrand), Moe (Kiana Madeira), and Tabitha (Quintessa Swindell) who are thrust into each others lives after meeting at a Shoplifters Anonymous meeting and quickly become friends. This first season explores that friendship but also follows the girls through their individual lives and personal struggles that involve everything from family to other relationships to school life.

Eighth Grade (2018) | Movie Review [Spoiler Free]

“But it’s like, being yourself is, like, not changing yourself to impress someone else.”

I’ve been waiting so long to see this movie and thanks to an eight hour flight I took recently, I finally got to!

Eighth Grade follows Kayla Day (Elsie Fisher) throughout her last days before she starts high school. Along the way we see that she has her own youtube channel and while everyone at school believes she’s quiet, Kayla thinks she’s actually quite talkative and even a little outgoing when you get to know her.

Moonlight (2016) | Movie Review [Spoiler Free]

I’m incredibly late to the game with this one but it’s been a little over two weeks since I watched Moonlight for the first time and I can’t stop thinking about it. It had been on my list to watch ever since it came out and I’m kicking myself that it took so long. I knew it was going to be good – all of the talk surrounding it as well as the awards and whatnot were telling enough – but I wasn’t expecting it to be that good. It’s impossible not to be a little in awe and I honestly don’t know if the current haze I’m living in will ever go away. Every time it seems that my brain is going to focus on someting else, I suddenly start thinking about this movie. It really is something else.

Back in February, right before season 2 of Good Girls started, I wrote a blog post talking about some things I was hoping to see during the season and today I’m going to revisit that post to see if any of those things happened. Before we jump into it, if you want to read the original post, you can find it here. The original list wasn’t in any particular order but this post will follow that same order.Rio

Good Girls Season 2 Episode 13: ‘King’ Review

Another season of Good Girls is officially over and now starts the long wait for season 3. Thank goodness we do have another season though because while ‘King’ was definitely an interesting watch, it would have been a pretty painful end for the show. Not everything that we’ve seen so far was concluded and it certainly opened the doors for even more possibilities moving forward.
