Speed (1994) | Movie Review [Spoiler Free]

I watched Speed a few times as a kid but it had been a while so when the opportunity arose, I couldn’t resist a rewatch. From what I remember, I did enjoy my pasting viewings but this time around, I had a particularly great and fun time.

For those who are unaware, this movie follows Los Angeles SWAT cop Jack Traven (Keanu Reeves) who has to deal with a bomb on a bus that can’t go below 50 mph otherwise it’ll explode. It’s such a simple concept but it works so well. It’s an action-packed, entertaining watch that does a fantastic job at keeping the viewers’ attention from beginning to end.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) | Movie Review [Spoiler Free]

While this post is a spoiler free review, there will be spoilers for the tv series.

Breaking Bad was primarily about Walter White (Bryan Cranston), there’s no denying that. His cancer diagnosis is the catalyst for everything that takes place in the show so it makes sense that it would begin and end with him. The closure of Breaking Bad, while leaving some things open, ended very closed up and final for Walter and his story. Everything was essentially tied up in a nice, neat little bow but over its 5 season run, there was one other character who became just as important and garnered a lot of attention. That, of course, was Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul).

Killjoys Season 5 Episode 10: ‘Last Dance’ Review

I admittedly don’t know where to start with this review. It feels strange writing about the final episode of such a wonderful show. During its lifespan, Killjoys has never truly disappointed. Sure, some episodes are way better than others but no episode has been bad per se. It’s been such an amazing ride with lots of emotional twists throughout that are perfectly separated with laugh-out-loud humour. There’s so much depth in everything Killjoys does and I’m so pleased we got to go on this journey with so many interesting and unique characters (who have been played by such talented people).

Killjoys Season 5 Episode 9: ‘Terraformance Anxiety’ Review

We’re reached the penultimate episode of Killjoys and I don’t know know what to do with myself. It was definitely a build up to the finale but still managed to avoid being a filler episode which was great. There was just enough action and wonderful scenes between various character to make the whole thing interesting and to get us invested but not too much to overshadow the upcoming final episode. In short, Terraformance Anxiety was really enjoyable (like the rest of season 5 so far) but waiting for the finale is intense.

Killjoys Season 5 Episode 8: ‘Don’t Stop Beweaving’ Review

This episode takes another step forward in figuring out how to take down the Lady. While they do have their successes, there are a lot of disruptions throughout. It was well paced and the overall structure of the episode was well done and easy to follow but it does have me wondering what the next two episodes are going to be like. So far, I’ve appreciated the pace that’s been set for season 5 but everything is coming to a close and I’m anxious to see how it’ll all fit in. At this point, there’s a lot of different pieces and they haven’t all come together yet.
