I was able to check out Netflix’s newest rom-com, THE LAST SUMMER this week and, I have to say, I enjoyed it!
SYNOPSIS: Teens from a Chicago high school grapple with their dreams, relationships and identities in a transformative summer before they leave for college.
Let’s start off with the cast. This cast was a mix of well-known actors (KJ Apa as Griffin, Maia Mitchell as Phoebe and Tyler Posey as Ricky) and relatively unknowns. Some of the characters were a bit over the top, and I’m not sure if that was due to a lack of experience or if that’s just how the characters were made to be. Either way, the majority of the cast fit really well together in their own little storylines. They’re never all together in one scene, which contributes to making this movie a bit more relatable for some people. In high school, you’re not always in this huge group of people that always gets along. Sometimes you’re alone or with one friend or with that person you have heart eyes for.
Each set of storylines were interesting to watch play out. Whether you’re recently graduating from high school or you graduated long ago, we all remember that crossroads moment when you realize everything is about to change. The characters in THE LAST SUMMER are all facing that familiar crossroad, so it brings back a sense of nostalgia for the viewer. Relationship troubles, applying to colleges, not getting into the college you had your eyes set on, figuring out where you’re headed and what mistakes you’ve made along the way . . . all of that plays out in this movie.
There’s not much action and it may not be my favorite movie ever, but it’s definitely worth a watch. The cast is great, the setting makes you want to pack your bags and head to Chicago, and it’s just a feel good movie that brings you back to that special time when you truly discover that life is at your fingertips.
Check it out for yourself, now on Netflix, and let me know what you thought!

It’s been a while since my brothers and I made plans to catch a movie together, but the release of Motley Crue & Netflix’s THE DIRT seemed like an appropriate time to change that! Let me give you just a little bit of backstory before I get into my review of the movie.
My brothers and I are all 4 years apart and I’m the youngest of three. My oldest brother has been the biggest Motley Crue fan since his teenage years, but we weren’t far behind. In 2008 I’d been laid off from my job, I had just found out that my best friend slept with the guy I was with & I was just an overall hot mess. My brother had never seen Motley live before, but he gave me his ticket to Crue Fest without a second thought. It was only natural that I repay his generosity by buying the three of us tickets to see them live TWICE after that, including seeing their Farewell Tour with our niece. The three of us had also read the book years ago, so we pretty much knew what to expect from the movie. (Side note: I’ve always had a little crush on Nikki, so there you have it.)
With that being said, the three of us made plans for a family movie night to catch THE DIRT on Netflix and we were all super stoked about it! Especially considering the fact that Motley served as producers and we all know that if something was fabricated or came across badly, Nikki would make those changes prior to the release lol.
Here’s the official synopsis of the movie:
In this unflinching biopic based on Motley Crue’s best-selling book, four LA misfits navigate the monster highs and savage lows of music superstardom.
First, I want to talk about the casting for the movie. Colson Baker (aka Machine Gun Kelly) as Tommy Lee was absolutely PERFECT. It actually felt like we were watching Tommy act out his past. Everything from their build to their mannerisms were spot-on, so kudos to Colson for his performance.
The other guys (Douglas Booth as Nikki Sixx, Iwan Rheon as Mick Mars and Daniel Webber as Vince Neil) were great as well. Admittedly, I had a little bit of a harder time believing Daniel Webber to be Vince, but he definitely had Vince’s on-stage mannerisms down. That might be partly because I’ve seen interviews with the others guys talking about their preparation and everything, but Daniel Webber hasn’t really done any press. My opinion of him in this movie has nothing to do with his acting skills though because he was great in The Punisher! It’s just difficult to portray someone so well known. Either way, you can tell that the guys all did their research on the OG’s to get this right.
I had looked up critic reviews before watching the movie myself and what I saw was awful. After watching it though, I have to disagree with their reviews. There were some things about the movie that I wasn’t particularly a fan of, but it wasn’t the debauchery that the band caused and lived through. That’s part of their story and all of what makes them Motley Crue. What I wasn’t a fan of were some of the transitions throughout the movie. I know it’s hard to take a 431-page book and almost 40 years together and make it into a 2 hour movie. But, at one point, they went from playing little club shows to playing arenas with no in between on how they got there. There was also the part where it seemed like a snarky comment from Nikki resulted in their owning their own music, but I’m sure it was much more detailed than that. It was little transitional things like that that seemed off to me. I guess it boils down to just wanting to see more. Maybe it could’ve been like a two-part movie, or like a mini-series or something.
That doesn’t take away from the quality of the movie though. THE DIRT transports you back to the 80s and definitely had great production value. What critics failed to take away from the movie is that this movie is about a band that was determined to play music their way and overcame some horrible situations over the course of their years together. Their story of success and debauchery is horrific and legendary at the same time, but these are 4 guys who went through the craziest of times and lived to tell the tale. Fans have loved seeing important moments from the band’s lives being played out on-screen, so that’s what matters most. The bottom line is that critics have always criticized Motley, but look at them now! They own their music, they have a book, a film adaptation of that book, and their music is back at the top of the charts. Seems like they’re doing alright for themselves! Plus, they still have loyal fans that are loving every second of their success.
If you’re a fan of the band, the guys as individuals, the 80s or just music and movies in general, I would recommend checking this out when you can. It’s gritty, it has moments that make you laugh and it makes you proud, as a fan, to watch the craziness that tried to take Motley away but failed! Lucky for us!
I know, I’m late to the party on this one, but better late than never always applies, right?? I’m not a huge horror fan, so I tried to avoid this one like the plague. I’d watched the trailer and part of me wanted to watch the show, but the other part of me didn’t want to have nightmares for the next week, so I said NOPE!
BUT, here I am. After finally giving in and watching it over the last few days, I’m here to tell you that if you haven’t watched this yet . . . DO IT!! What a great show! Everything from the story to the cast (both in past and present) to the directing to the effects was phenomenal. I was terrified, but also could not stop watching even when that one part of me really wanted to.
SYNOPSIS: Flashing between past and present, a fractured family confronts haunting memories of their old home and the terrifying events that drove them from it.
As the synopsis mentions, Netflix’s THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE follows the Crain family in two separate timelines. The first is the family of seven moving into Hill House as Hugh and Olivia Crain attempt to flip and sell it. The family begins to experience paranormal activity that seems to increase the longer they remain in the house. The second timeline shows the family, now adults, still attempting to deal with the aftermath of what transpired during their time at Hill House as children. Both timelines weave in and out together in a way that works perfectly with each episode’s progression.
The show is loosely based on the novel of the same name by Shirley Jackson. Word to the wise . . . do not watch the show and then read the book trying to get answers you may not have received on the show! I’m only on the third chapter of the book, but these are two completely different situations. The book focuses on random people being invited to stay at Hill House, whereas the Netflix Original show focuses on the aspect of family and how these terrifying, traumatic events can cause a ripple in the lives of those who experience them.
Fun Fact: While watching episode 8, “Witness Marks,” one of the scariest scenes for me, personally, literally took my breath away. Maybe 5 minutes after that scene, the lights in my house flickered. I didn’t mention it to anyone because I figured it was probably just in my head because this show is insane, but nooooooooooo. My mother and brother both said they noticed it also. Half of the lights in our apartment complex had gone out. Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t think you want to know what might’ve happened to me if the power had gone out in my apartment as I was watching this show.
With that being said, I’m really surprised at how much I enjoyed watching this show. It’s one of those ones where you really can’t even attempt to try to figure anything out. It has twists and turns and you don’t know what’s real and what isn’t. You become invested in these characters, both as children and as adults. Kudos to Mike Flanagan for delivering a fantastic horror show that is terrifying and lovely and freakishly interesting with the perfect cast to go along with it. Well done!
I do still have some questions:
Why does Hugh Crain say that Hill House is the most dangerous for Steven?
Why could the adult Crain children “speak” with Nell, but not with their mother?
Why does it seem as though Nell was sort of targeted as opposed to any of the other children? Her and Luke experienced the most traumatic of the experiences, but I got the sense that the house wanted Nell to come home more than any of the other children.
Also, I’m not sure if I missed something in my tensed-up, anxious state of watching, but, in the finale, why does Steven ask Hugh what he saw? He’d always been so fixated on what Hugh wasn’t telling the children about the night they left Hill House, but I feel like I missed what it was he was blocking out.
Lastly, I want to know how it was for these younger children to film a show like this and have to say some of the things they had to say and see some of the things they had to see. Here’s to hoping they’re all just really great, young actors that won’t be scarred for life!
If any of you have watched and have theories, please let me know what your thoughts were! It was also announced recently that there will be a second season titled The Haunting of Bly Manor to be released in 2020. Do you think they’ll bring back some of the same actors the way that American Horror Story does? I really enjoyed the casting for this show, so I’m kinda hoping they do!

I am SO ready for Season 2!!!! Ok, maybe I’m not!!
SYNOPSIS: The series revolves around Frank Castle, who uses lethal methods to fight crime as the vigilante “the Punisher”, with Jon Bernthal reprising the role from Daredevil.
I can’t wait to see what happens this season! I mean, let’s be honest . . . Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle is one of the best ruthless vigilante performances and Ben Barnes as Billy Russo is that gorgeous villain you hate to love and love to hate lol.
In a few interviews, Ben Barnes has said that “Jigsaw” will be more of a metaphorical concept now that he’s trying to piece together what happened. Not gonna lie, when I saw him all bandaged up at the end of the first season, I was worried about what he’d look like in Season 2. I’m terrible, I know. Don’t judge me!
Season 2 is sure to have some more of the incredible chemistry between these two characters, along with some fantastic supporting roles. I can not wait! For now, enjoy the teaser trailer that Netflix released today.
I’ve been a huge fan of OneRepublic for years now. I’ve even claimed that ‘Native’ is my favorite album of all time — yes, even above my all-time favorite Justin Timberlake‘s albums. They’re musical geniuses no matter how you break it down. I got to see them live once when they co-headlined with The Script a few years ago and it was one of my favorite shows I’ve been to. Now I’m just waiting for them to come down to Miami again!
When I saw that a session from this documentary series with OneRepublic would be available on Netflix, I had to jump at the chance to watch it because why the heck wouldn’t I??
SYNOPSIS: Once In A Lifetime Sessions is an original and unique music documentary series giving viewers the chance to get up close and personal with some of today’s most celebrated music icons. Filmed on location at some of the greatest studios around the world, the Sessions highlight the craftsmanship, artistic depth, incredible skill and talent of the artists whilst also showcasing their catalogue. Each episode is dedicated to a single artist or group and features both an intimate live performance and a vinyl recording session. These are woven together with exclusive interview footage and a masterclass exploring the stories behind some of the most memorable songs of all time. Episodes include OneRepublic, Kasabian, George Ezra, Snow Patrol, TLC, Moby, Noel Gallagher and Nile Rodgers. Now streaming on US Netflix.
In all honesty, I’d never heard of this series before this particular session, but I love shows like this. I used to love watching MAKING THE VIDEO and the DIARY series on MTV back in the day (I’m in my 30’s, don’t attack me lol). As a lover of music and entertainment, I loved being able to see the behind-the-scenes of it all. How things began as an idea and how that idea was actually put together for an artist. That’s what really fascinated me. Getting to know your favorite artists behind the music. This series reminds me of that. You get to learn a little more about OneRepublic from their own mouths and you also get to watch a few live performances of them on stage.
I highly recommend check out this episode and also going back and watching any others that you can find! Personally, I’m hooked!
Ladies and gentlemen, Netflix has finally announced an official release date for Season 3 of STRANGER THINGS! While our favorite kids will be in 1985, we’ll be able to enjoy the third season in its entirety on July 4, 2019 via Netflix.
The teaser trailer and release date were available at midnight New Year’s Eve, which is a nice little tie in with the teaser.
Are there any theories or predictions about what will happen in Season 3?? What are you most excited for? I’m still amazed at how Steve became one of our favorite characters lol.
Check out the teaser trailer below and make sure to tune in to Netflix July 4, 1985 2019!
I saw the trailer for BRAIN ON FIRE on Netflix a while ago, and I finally had a chance to sit down and watch it this week.
For the most part it was pretty slow-moving, but seeing as this movie was based on the real life story of Susannah Cahalan, it was also pretty terrifying.
SYNOPSIS: Susannah Cahalan is a promising writer at the New York Post. She’s young, she’s happy and she’s living her best life in NYC. When she begins exhibiting unexplained erratic & violent behavior, her parents & doctors race the clock to correctly diagnose her condition and to bring Susannah back.
The first half of the movie, as I mentioned, was pretty slow-moving. This is no action movie, but it’s the telling of the real Susannah Cahalan’s experience with a rare condition called anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis. So, the slowness is just us watching a normal day in Susannah’s life before experiencing any symptoms. Once she begins experiencing symptoms, it’s a downhill battle because no one knows exactly what’s causing her behavior and none of her doctors know what her diagnosis is just yet.
It was interesting to watch the movie and watch this person go through something as terrifying as basically being trapped inside of your own body, and then to read the facts about how many people go through this unknowingly.
If you want to watch the movie for yourself, you can catch it on Netflix now, and you can also read the memoir by the real Susannah Cahalan, also titled Brain on Fire.
I’ve been waiting months for BIRD BOX to finally be released on Netflix, so I was excited to curl up on the couch to check it out last night after doing some last-minute Christmas shopping. Because nothing says holiday spirit like a supernatural apocalyptic movie that has you on the edge of your seat for about 2 hours, amiright? My excitement to see this was heightened after seeing some of the feedback on Twitter about it. I definitely went into it with high expectations and it delivered!
No lie, I felt like I needed a Xanax to calm my anxiety throughout most of the movie — ok, all of the movie. My body was tense the whole time and I just couldn’t stop watching. Unfortunately, it’s easy to compare BIRD BOX to A Quiet Place because they both have similar concepts, but this one took the cake for me.
SYNOPSIS: When a mysterious force decimates the population, only one thing is certain — if you see it, you die. The survivors must now avoid coming face to face with an entity that takes the form of their worst fears. Searching for hope and a new beginning, a woman and her children embark on a dangerous journey through the woods and down a river to find the one place that may offer sanctuary. To make it, they’ll have to cover their eyes from the evil that chases them — and complete the trip blindfolded.
BIRD BOX gave me a little bit of what A Quiet Place didn’t. I can’t really pin point exactly what that was, but once the movie was done I didn’t feel like something had been missing. The cast was incredible, the plot was interesting and Sandra Bullock’s performance throughout the movie was probably one of her best performances. (Side note: Why the heck is Trevante Rhodes not being mentioned anywhere? Between BIRD BOX and Moonlight, he deserves a bit more recognition.) One thing that I appreciated in this movie was that viewers never get to see whatever it is that causes the mass suicides once it’s seen. The fear of the unknown is brutal, so I liked that we never really had a physical image to go along with whatever supernatural being was causing this mass terror.
It’s definitely worth the watch. Douglas (John Malkovich) will make you want to punch your TV screen, Olympia (Danielle Macdonald) will make you want to scream in her face, Felix (Machine Gun Kelly) will make you wonder why his character was even there in the first place if he wasn’t going to be given any significant importance (not that I don’t like MGK), and Mallory (Sandra Bullock) and Tom (Trevante Rhodes) will make you want to be their besties during any apocalyptic situation.
Give it a chance and, as always, let me know your thoughts!

I’m hoping that everyone is feeling the Christmas spirit – what with Christmas only being less than a week away and all. I’ve just been cookie-baking and Christmas shopping and feeling the onset of my anxiety when I think about what I’ve spent and what I’ll eventually have to pay back lol. I did find some time to sit down and watch THE CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES on Netflix this weekend and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised!
SYNOPSIS: The story of sister and brother, Kate and Teddy Pierce, whose Christmas Eve plan to catch Santa Claus on camera turns into an unexpected journey that most kids could only dream about.
Kurt Russell is THE perfect Santa Claus. He’s the coolest version I’ve ever seen in a movie, that’s for sure. What other Santa have YOU seen that wears a red leather coat? I’d also seen that the people who handled the special effects in the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Home Alone also handled the special effects in this one, so I went into it with pretty high expectations. With that being said, I thought they did a fantastic job. I remember thinking to myself that this is the perfect Christmas movie for kids to see because not only was Santa relatable and very human-like, but it was everything that I think a child might try to envision. For example, how does Santa carry around gifts for so many children in one little bag on his sleigh? This movie brings that idea to life and allows children to see what the inside of that bag might look like.
While I, myself, became salty that a fictional character was taking all of the credit for my hard work in buying gifts for my niece when she was younger, I still found myself enjoying this movie very much. It had the corniness that all Christmas movies have, but it also had adventure and a coolness about it. It brings imagination to life in a new way. I’ve seen a few people say that this movie is safe for children 10+ to watch, but I also have friends who have watched this with their younger children & they loved it. It’s an edgy twist on the idea of Santa and I highly recommend checking it out! If you’re not 100% sure if you should watch it with your young ones, perhaps you should watch it yourself first. Either way, curl up on the couch with some popcorn and hot cocoa and enjoy the swag that Kurt Russell brings to the character!
