“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.

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.

“I’m an unnatural mother.”
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.

Ever since Extracurricular dropped on Netflix back in April 2020, I’ve been eager to watch it and I have to say, I’m so mad at myself for not watching it sooner.
This show follows Oh Ji-soo (Kim Dong-hee), a high school student who is engaged in a life of crime in order to graduate and escape a dead-end life. Along the way, things are thrown into chaos when someone from school finds out about his illegal side-business and from then on, things continue to get more dangerous and risky.
Throughout this review, I won’t be naming the aforementioned illegal side-business, mainly because it’s revealed in episode one and I, personally, found it more interesting to watch the reveal play out. That being said, the business does play a fairly big role in the overall story and is essentially another character in and of itself considering it has its own development as the season progresses. Also, the slightest change to it affects the human characters and vice versa making everything feel connected and raising the stakes throughout.

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).
