Imagine this: you’re sitting in a classroom, falling asleep on the monotonous tone of your teacher’s voice when the girl in front of you suddenly explodes, for absolutely no reason. Later, another kid from school follows the same fate, then another and you might be next.
There’s something incredibly creepy in waiting for a death that may or may not come, in an hour or in a day. Ineluctability is one of human’s greatest fear. When each moment might be the last, everything has to happen now, especially love.
We were afraid to watch a modern teen romantic comedy. Fortunately, the movie didn’t become over corny, probably thanks to the excellent performance of Katherine Langford (13 reasons why) who’s mostly portraying very unlucky teens. I wish that she’d never age, so she could save many more teen movies.
Voilà, we’ve finally seen the last episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer…
When it first came out, in the 90s, I refused to watch it. Sarah Michelle Gellar was just too much of those blondes we loved to hate during the grunge time. She looked like a Paris Hilton with a brushing. I always wondered why she wore high heels and was dressed as if she was walking her puddle in the streets of New York… If you have to spend your nights in a graveyard, waiting for vampires to rise, wouldn’t you want to dress accordingly?
But, since last year, we try to catch back on those pieces of pop culture that we might have missed because of made up ideas, and Buffy was one of them.
Let’s be honest, on seven seasons, only three are good (1, 2 & 7), the rest goes from total garbage to barely watchable. Most of the actors can’t act and I’m not surprised that we haven’t seen them anywhere else. Also, even if the show is about slaying vampires, it seems that the entire plot revolves around Buffy falling in love with (and shagging) them (as depicted in the image above).
But, even if we wanted to stop watching the show many times, especially when it takes 3 full episodes for her mother to die (oops spoiler, sorry), I’m glad that we made it until the end. Buffy is a monument in fantastic and pop culture and it kept us entertained during many evening dinners. Now, let’s see what Angel is about…
When a bunch of teens go camping, one drunk dude cut off his own dick by accident. His friends have 24 hours to hike back to civilization and bring the missing body part to a hospital where it will be re-attached to its owner.
This movie is as dumb as its synopsis sounds, but we didn’t have a bad time watching it. Definitely not a good pick if you’re looking for something with depth.
