UNMISSABLE

Mr. Nobody is a beautiful film about a man named Nemo Nobody who experiences life and time differently than everybody else. It is one of those movies with a plot that can take many viewings to fully piece together, but unlike many of those movies, I believe every little detail adds up to a story that makes sense. Even the things I thought were continuity errors the first time around, I realized on second viewing had significance and meaning behind them. Mr. Nobody is full of wonderful imagery and great cinematography, it utilize’s it’s beautiful score as well as it’s non-orginal music extremely well and Jared Leto gives a great performance as Nemo. If you’re into delightfully strange and confusing films than I highly recommend Mr. Nobody.

There is barely any violence in this movie but it is fairly mature and has some sexual content so I would suggest 14 and up.

Extended Director’s Cut available on iTunes and Amazon.

Theatrical Cut available on iTunes, Amazon, and Netflix.

TV Review: Breaking Bad (2008-2013)

1yeVJox3rjo2jBKrrihIMj7uoS9 copy⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5   [TV-MA]

UNMISSABLE

Breaking Bad is a crime drama about Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with cancer who starts cooking crystal meth, and I regard it as the closest to perfection any filmmaker has ever gotten, especially on TV. The acting and characterization are outstanding and the writing is beyond phenomenal. The cinematography as well as the music, original and otherwise, are extremely favorable. Breaking Bad is unparalleled as the best Television series I’ve ever watched so I strongly urge you to start binge-watching right away if you haven’t already seen it.

I wouldn’t advise kids younger than 13, maybe 12, watch Breaking Bad.

Available on iTunes, Netflix, and Amazon.

TV Review: A Series of Unfortunate Events (2017-)

mv5bmtuxmjizodi0nv5bml5banbnxkftztgwmdk3oti2mdi-_v1_sy1000_cr007041000_al_⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️☁️ 4/5   [TV-PG]

Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is an extremely unique and whimsical self-aware story about three siblings orphaned by a deadly fire uncovering dark family secrets and it is based on the book series of the same name. Neil Patrick Harris and Patrick Warburton are great, the child actors are pretty good and I really loved the soundtrack. The story is told/narrated by Lemony Snicket (Patrick Warburton) in a way that gives a feeling of peculiarity and freshness to the show. I highly recommend trying A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix because you have without a doubt never seen anything like it, at first it will seem very strange and unusual but you will quickly get used to it’s unique atmosphere and learn to embrace it by the time you finish season 1.

Although intentionally dark and despairing, this series is actually kind of lighthearted, kids 9 and up can probably watch it without a problem.

Available on Netflix.

TV Review: How I Met Your Mother (2005-2014)

x41798777321⭐️⭐️⭐️⛅️☁️ 3.5/5   [TV-14]

How I Met Your Mother is a sitcom told almost entirely through flashbacks about a man recounting to his kids the very long story of how he met their mother. It’s fairly entertaining throughout but the last season goes downhill, especially the last episode, which does a pretty bad job of wrapping up the story. Easily the best part of this show is the running gags of which there are many. If you need a nice 20-minute show to binge for a while then maybe give How I Met Your Mother a try.

Kids 13 and up should be fine watching this.

Available on iTunes, Amazon, and Netflix.

TV Review: Colony (2016-)

colony-poster-7_595_mini-logo-tv-white-gallery⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️☁️ 4/5   [TV-14]

Colony is a fairly unique sci-fi drama series that takes place in the near future and centers around a family trying to stay together in an occupied Los Angeles. The show was created by Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Ryan J. Condal, it stars Josh Holloway (Lost) and Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead). The acting and the characters are decent but what I really liked about this show is the mystery of how Los Angeles came to be the way it is, which keeps you coming back for answers. Overall Colony isn’t amazing but it’s solidly entertaining and has a fresh story so I suggest trying season 1 on Netflix if you haven’t already!

Most or all of the content in Colony is appropriate for kids 13 and up.

Available on iTunes, Netlfix, and Amazon.

TV Review: Lost (2004-2010)

image⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5   [TV-14]

UNMISSABLE

J.J. Abrams applies his exceptional handling of mysteries, secrets, and unanswered questions to Lost, a very mysterious series about a group of plane crash survivors on a deserted island. It has very rich mythology and greatly developed characters. I really can’t say much about this show other than watching the whole thing many times over is practically a necessity. You’ve probably heard from at least 5 different people that the ending sucks and while its not as bad as they say, don’t expect a satisfying finale. I still recommend watching Lost and NEVER looking at anything on the Internet relating to airplanes, islands, J.J. Abrams, or Michael Giacchino until you are done binge-watching.

I think 11 and up could watch Lost if they are good at following insanely complicated plotlines.

Available on iTunes, Netflix, and Amazon.

TV Review: Stranger Things (2016-)

image⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5   [TV-14]

UNMISSABLE

Stranger Things is a supernatural sci-fi thriller in which a young boy mysteriously disappears and his friends, mother, and brother, as well as the local police chief attempt to get him back. The whole show takes place in 1983 so there is a lot of 80s memorabilia, the characters are well-written, the child-actors did an amazing job, and I love the awesome soundtrack. Stranger Things is like a delicious 8-hour goodie bag full of the best parts of sci-fi in the 80s and it is definitely unmissable!

Kids 12 and up shouldn’t have any trouble watching this unless they get nightmares easily.

Available only on Netflix.
