Good Girls Season 3 Episode 11: ‘Synergy’ Review

Despite the shortened season, episode 11 worked surprisingly well to bring things to a satisfying enough end all things considered. Naturally, it doesn’t feel entirely like a planned finale might but as a make-shift one, it was a good place to stop things. There is enough insight into what’s to come and while, as of writing this, renewal hasn’t been announced, there is plenty to give us an idea of where the story might go next.

“Do all lovers feel they’re inventing something?”

Yesterday, I logged onto MUBI to find that they had Portrait of a Lady on Fire available to watch, a movie that was very high up on my watchlist last year and I have to say, I’m so happy I finally got to see it and that it was even better than I ever thought it would be.

Good Girls Season 3 Episode 10: ‘Opportunity’ Review

For an episode that wasn’t supposed to be the penultimate of the season, Opportunity works surprisingly well as one. We’re given just enough information on what might happen in next week’s episode even without watching the promo video for it but we’re not given too much, meaning that really anything could happen. Considering next week’s episode wasn’t supposed to be the finale, it’ll be interesting to see what cliffhangers it ends on (if any).

It’s been a couple of weeks since the last episode of Good Girls and oh boy, does it feel good to be back. This week seemed to strip back a little and primarily serve as a way to change things up slightly but it was still a fairly fun watch. While there wasn’t any particular grand moment, there were a lot of smaller ones that were all necessary to either push the story along or address ongoing plots.

Studio Ghibli Movies, Ranked: Which is the Best?

This post is spoiler-free.

With Studio Ghibli movies having dropped on Netflix around the world in February, March, and April of 2020, it seems like everyone and their pets are writing lists ranking each title from the worst to the best. Still, with how stylised yet varied the company’s filmography is, I figured I would throw in my two cents and rank them myself.

I would say that objectively speaking, the majority of the movies produced by Studio Ghibli are absolutely worthwhile but hopefully, this list will help you decide which ones to prioritise when choosing what to (re-)watch. That being said, I hope you enjoy and I would love to know what order you would put them or at the very least, what your favourite is!
