“You’re absolutely right. They deserve to go down for what they did to us, but we can’t go after them ourselves. We should team up and do each other’s revenge.”
Never would I have thought that I’d love Do Revenge as much as I do. The premise is simple and not entirely unique (considering it’s loosely inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train). As the quote above shows… Two girls meet and because both have been hurt in some way they decide to swap and do each other’s revenge. For how simple the basic plot is, this movie is still so much fun and absolutely worth the watch.

“Thou art lucky to have each other. A witch is nothing without her coven.”
Let’s be honest, there didn’t really need to be a Hocus Pocus 2. The first one felt well-rounded enough and had a satisfying conclusion. However, did that quench my excitement to watch this? Absolutely not.
The sequel picks up nearly 30 years after the original — the same amount of time that’s passed between releases — with the Sanderson sisters returning to Salem once more. The vibes are very similar to the first movie and due to the amount of time that has passed, it’s yet another new world for the sisters to explore even if their goal is very much the same.

Right off the bat, I’m going to say that I would recommend Baymax! to most, if not all, people. It will be a particularly enjoyable experience for those of you who are already acquainted with the character Baymax who previously appeared in both the Big Hero 6 movie and tv series, however, the good thing about this new show is that you can still follow along even if you don’t know the character already.
That being said, Baymax! has six episodes in total. The first five follow Baymax as he tries to help a new person each episode and it eventually all comes together for a pretty special sixth episode although I won’t say any more about that to help you avoid spoilers. Each episode is only around 10 minutes long (give or take a minute) meaning this entire season only requires roughly an hour of your time.

Finlay Donovan Is Killing It was my first 5-star read of 2022. I had some pretty high expectations for this one and I’m so pleased that it worked out. In fact, it made me love it even more to discover that not only did it meet those expectations but it succeeded them.
The book follows Finlay, a novelist who is overheard while discussing her next book with her agent and is mistaken for a contract killer. When someone tries to hire her, it creates a catalyst for a series of events as Finlay falls down a bit of a rabbit hole. The story is great and hilarious and the mystery is genuinely interesting. The pacing is great and because that mystery is never overcomplicated, it means the plot moves along at a wonderful pace and the entire book is entertaining from start to finish.

Unfortunately, in mid-late 2021, this blog had to be put on the back burner and I was unable to finish writing my reviews for Good Girls.
Considering it’s by far one of my favourite shows of all time and it was sadly cancelled after 4 seasons, I figured I would compose the reviews for the last 6 episodes into one post as mini-reviews so that I can still get some of my thoughts out there for a show I have a lot of love and appreciation for.
