Netflix’s Persuasion (2022) was a Hot Mess

Netflix’s Persuasion (2022) was a Hot Mess

Netflix recently released an adaptation of Jane Austen's Persuasion, which was a hot mess, to say the least. I can get into a period drama movie when it's done right. When it's not, a 1h 47m movie will take me hours to complete. If I finish it at all, and unfortunately for this adaptation, it fell into that category. So, I thought I would discuss the ways this movie went wrong.…

The Story Inconsistencies of Stranger Things Season 4

The Story Inconsistencies of Stranger Things Season 4

It's been ages since I decided to write about a show, but there were several story inconsistencies that I noted while watching the latest season of Stranger Things that I felt it was warranted. Now don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the season but there were quite a few things that were "off" about it.…

The Pop Culture Download #18: Christmas in the Smokies & Frozen II

With the Thanksgiving holiday, I ended up spending time with my family and one of the things we do for traditions is watch movies. We ended up watching two different ones. The first being Christmas in the Smokies on Netflix and the second being Frozen II. I'm not going to share the plot or discuss either in great detail in case you haven't seen them yet and want to.…

The Pop Culture Download #14: American Horror Story: Apocalypse, Fallen, and Ghosts of the Shadow Market

It's been two weeks since I posted one of these, and honestly with work I haven't had much time for shows, movies, and games but I did manage to watch the entire eighth season of American Horror Story as well as watch a movie called Fallen. Plus, there are a few other random items here and there so let's jump into my thoughts on these items.…

The Pop Culture Download #8: The Society, The Royals, and More

I'm half tempted to rename these from "My Week Through Reading, Music, and More" to "The Pop Culture Download." Since that's really more of what these are. Let me know what you think in the comments. Anyways, here's everything that I've been enjoying for the past week.…

The Pop Culture Download #7: The Society, Minecraft, The Lion King and More

Another week has come and gone, and it's been a stressful one to say the least... at least it was for me. So... here's everything I've been enjoying over the last week when I haven't been working. Which is surprisingly a lot compared to other weeks where I actually got sleep. Maybe my severe lack of sleep helped me discover things... I'm not really sure. But anyways, let's get into my week through reading, music, and more (though there's no reading this week).…

The Pop Culture Download #6: Orange is the New Black and The Dark Artifices

Hope everyone had an amazing week! I got internet a week ago but didn't have anything to share so I took the week off of these. In that time, I got Amazon Fire TV so I can stream YouTube and Netflix on my television. I'm also finally almost done with unpacking, I have about four small boxes left that I need to figure out what to do with. There are still a few things here and there that I want to do, but it's enough where starting this week I'll start the real and in depth Apartment Diary posts that I've been wanting to make since I got the apartment I had wanted to move into for the last year. But today is not the day for that. Today I'm sharing everything that I've discovered or been obsessed with for the last week.…
