No Exit (2022) | Movie Review [Spoiler Free]

[Header: Hulu]

Before watching No Exit, I’d read the book. It definitely influenced my opinion of the movie. Personally, I prefer the book but I enjoyed both and I’m glad I sat down to watch this adaptation. For those who don’t know. No Exit follows Darby who is forced to take refuge at a rest stop during a blizzard. There she meets four strangers and finds evidence that one of them may have kidnapped a child. 

Now, there are some differences between the book and the movie so I would say it’s worth checking out both, however, at its core, the plot is essentially the same whether you read the book or watch the movie.

Bridgerton Season 2 Review

This post has potential, minor SPOILERS.

Admittedly, I wasn’t sure how much I’d like season 2 of Bridgerton going into it. This is because I never felt any particular way towards Anthony (the eldest Bridgerton sibling whom this season follows). I was, however, happy to find that I enjoyed this season quite a bit and honestly, I probably enjoyed it as equally as the first.

Here’s the thing with Bridgerton. It’s not going to be for everyone and I would argue is not the kind of show you go into for anything other than a good time. While it does have deeper and more emotional scenes and storylines — Anthony’s past surrounding his father is a particularly good example of this — it can also be a little silly and over the top at times.

The Lost Daughter (2021) | Movie Review

While it’s not a favourite, I did enjoy The Lost Daughter more than I was expecting to and it actually grew on me a little in the few days after I watched it. In particular, I really enjoyed the way it looks and sounds. For the most part, it manages to keep a strong aesthetic (and feeling) throughout even if it does waver here and there.

Clarice Season 1 Review [Spoiler Free]

The first season of Clarice is a promising start. It manages to use what has been set up by 1991 The Silence of the Lambs movie while also doing its own thing which helps it to fit in with this universe without feeling repetitive. At no point does it feel like the movie is being erased or completely rewritten which makes this show even more enjoyable.

Good Girls | 4×11 – 4×16 Mini Reviews

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.
