Keep on reading for March’s movie and tv show reviews:

TV Shows

Ginny & Georgia – Season 1 (2021) – Rating: 5/5

I loved Ginny & Georgia. This show did stress me out at times when it came to certain characters and their actions. There are some characters that are flawed and some characters had me raising an eyebrow or two lol. In the show some of the topics dealt with friendship, racism (microaggressions), love, family, parenting, self harm, body image, and criminal activity. Not only did we see inside Ginny and Georgia’s relationship/home life, but we also got to see some of the other teens home life/problems as well. The show is funny and also has some drama. Ginny & Georgia is an entertaining, fun, sometimes frustrating, but definitely a binge worthy show. I’m ready for season 2.

WandaVision (2021) – Rating: 5/5

I loved that the episodes paid homage to past sitcoms, which made the show quirky and unique. Each episode kept us in suspense and had us thinking whether Wanda was the villain or not and to see what she was capable of. Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen’s chemistry and performances were wonderful. The cast did amazing, especially the performances of Teyonah Parris, and Kathryn Hahn. And let’s not forget Kat Dennings and Randall Park who added some humor to the show. I really enjoyed seeing Quicksilver played by Evan Peters in this series, which was a nice surprise. The show’s Easter eggs were fun and exciting to see as well. WandaVision is strange, delightful, mysterious, creative, intriguing and it reshaped our expectations on what to expect from the future MCU.

The Sinner – Seasons 1-3 (2017) – Rating: 5/5

Originally this series was just supposed to have one season, but because the ratings of the first season were so high, the show became an anthology series where each season is about a crime that is unrelated to the other seasons. I thought this series was really great. The cast is amazing in all three seasons but I want to highlight the performances of Jessica Biel, Bill Pullman, and Matt Bomer who were all brilliant. What I love about each season is how Bill Pullman’s character cared about what happened to the suspects; he knows that deep down there’s an unexplained and unsuspecting reason on why that crime happened, which involves him looking into the suspects past making viewers call this series a whydunnit – why was this crime committed. The Sinner is compelling, intense, mysterious, and suspenseful.

Doctor Foster -Seasons 1-2 (2015) – Rating: 3.5/5

Doctor Foster is a compelling show. Out of the two seasons my favorite was season one. Gemma/Dr. Foster played fantastically by Suranne Jones is a wife who suspects and finds out that her husband (Simon) is having an affair with a younger woman. So many secrets were in season one including the people who knew about the affair. Season one was surprising, entertaining, and suspenseful. Season Two isn’t horrible but there was too much obsession and revenge going on with Gemma and Simon even when the two have started new lives. Season two is explosive, has great acting as well and is an emotional roller coaster.

Invisible City – Season 1 (2021) – Rating: 5/5

Invisible City is a Brazilian series, so the show is in Portuguese, and I enjoyed watching it in this language. The show has a fascinating plot that features characters that are based on mythological entities from Brazilian folklore, which is interesting and exciting. The characters are charming, the acting and soundtrack is really great. The atmosphere and tone of the movie is suspenseful and mysterious. I also enjoyed the plot. The series is also a mixture of fantasy, crime, and drama. Invisible City is refreshing, fun, unique, captivating, and I couldn’t stop watching the show, I’m ready for Season 2.

Movies

Flesh & Blood (2018) – Rating: 4/5

This second installment of Hulu’s Into The Dark anthology is centered around the holiday of Thanksgiving. When a teen’s mother is murdered she develops agoraphobia where she can’t leave the house because the murderer was never caught. The performances of Diana Silvers and Dermot Mulroney (Kimberly and Henry Tooms) were great, but Mulroney really brings it while carrying this caring and creepy dad act. Is the dad a serial killer or not ? Flesh & Blood moves at a decent pace and also keeps the audience in suspense the whole time. This movie gives us terror and tension between Kimberly and her father Henry. Flesh & Blood is suspenseful, tense, and frightening.

Raya And The Last Dragon (2021) – Rating: 5/5

Watching the movie I was excited, hopeful, and happy. I haven’t felt like this with an animated movie in a long time. Seeing Asian culture, tradition, and the people being seen in this film was beautiful; Representation matters. The film’s animation is visually stunning, gorgeous and the fight and action sequences were beautiful. The cast was amazing and talented. Kelly Marie Tran and Awkwafina were the highlight of the movie and so was their character’s relationship. I loved the film’s themes on love, hope, and trust. Raya and The Last Dragon is fun, heart warming, exciting, charming, and epic.

Coming 2 America (2021) – Rating: 3/5

Many would say Coming To America is one of Eddie Murphy’s best films and I’d have to agree. While it is a beloved film, I’m sure no one expected a sequel would be released. The casting was great and featured most of the original cast, although I wonder if filling the movie with all of these celeb cameos was necessary. As far as the humor go, some of the characters were funny and made me laugh every now and then. I also got a lot of Wakanda/Black Panther movie vibes from some of the characters and actions in the film, which isn’t a bad thing, but it did make me laugh. Coming 2 America is a trip down memory lane with the characters that made you laugh from the previous film, an upbeat story, and entertaining. While the movie is not perfect, it’s worth checking out.

Moxie (2021)- Rating: 4/5

Amy Poehler directed this comedy – drama based off the 2015 novel by Jennifer Mathieu. I loved this movie. The cast did a great job, and my favorite performance in the movie goes to Alycia Pascual-Peña who played Lucy Hernandez in the film. Alycia performance stood out and was fantastic. I also loved Nico Hiraga role as Seth Acosta, who supported the idea of Moxie and is an amazing guy throughout the film. This movie dealt with the sexist views and issues like harassment and rape girls and women deal with especially at school and how a zine sparked female empowerment amongst the students. With a talented cast, Moxie is fun, inspiring, heart warming, and uplifting.

Streaming On: Netflix

Pooka (2018) – Rating: 3.5/5

I didn’t know what to expect when I started watching Pooka but I knew it was a slight chance of something creepy or weird going on . The cast was really good and the performance of Nyasha Hatendi as Wilson was great. Wilson is an actor who gets hired to portray a new Christmas toy that is a stuffed animal being released name Pooka in a costume. I wasn’t sure what was going happen to Wilson when he was dressed up in that costume but at times you can sense that something bad was gonna happen. Throughout the movie Wilson is attached and dependent on the costume which is not a good thing. Pooka is a slow burner and psychological thriller with a twist.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021) – Rating: 5/5

We finally get to watch Zack Snyder’s Justice League and this movie is what we deserved four years ago. Zack Snyder’s Justice League is epic. The cast was amazing and so was the character development that was lacking in the first film, which I’m sure everyone can agree that the rich character development was needed. We also got deeper backstories to these characters as well, and their stories mattered and were important to the film. The action, the visual effects, the cinematography and the score were awesome. I didn’t see the movie runtime as a problem and I loved that this film was more detailed. I also enjoyed how the movie was broken into parts. This film has effective storytelling, it has heart, and it’s bigger and better. Zack Snyder’s Justice League is fun, exciting, entertaining, and is an awesome superhero film.

Streaming On: HBO Max

Deadly Illusions (2021) – Rating: 2.5/5

I didn’t love the movie, but I thought it was okay and it could’ve been better. The acting was decent. I like the plot of the movie, but I feel that while watching the movie the audience can get confused and not only that but some scenes in the movie doesn’t make sense, you think why is this happening, what’s the purpose ? Especially when it comes to the timeline of the movie, there’s no clarity to it. I still have questions after watching the movie. There’s a twist at the end so be prepared for that. Deadly Illusions isn’t one of Netflix’s best films, but it is entertaining and thrilling. If this movie piques your interest, then give it a watch. 

Streaming On: Netflix

The Block Island Sound (2020) – Rating: 3.5/5

I enjoyed The Block Island Sound. The acting was great. There were a few creepy performances but it’s something you would expect. You’re not gonna get gore and obvious horror, but it’s the atmosphere and the not knowing that makes you scared and keeps you in suspense. In The Block Island Sound you get dead fish washing ashore, dead birds on the beach, and weird growling sounds, and you’re wondering what does all this mean, what’s going on ? The movie moving at a decent pace, the atmosphere, and the music gives this film its horror effect. The Block Island Sound is suspenseful, creepy, entertaining, and intense.

Godzilla vs Kong (2021) – Rating : 4/5

The day where we get to see these two titans collide is here, Godzilla vs Kong. Although there wasn’t much to say about the acting, because it’s not of those films where it has to be amazing, but the performances were solid. Now let’s talk about the titans. All Godzilla and Kong want to do is to be left in peace, and of course that peace is disturbed, which led to these two battling it out, but not without a surprise visit from another “titan”, which was fun to see. The storyline was great and the movie was well paced. And wow, the visuals are colorful, powerful, and spectacular, especially those scenes in Hong Kong. Godzilla vs Kong is an action packed, entertaining, and epic film.
