Wrapping it up for October!

Hello, my darling readers!
Another month is over, so let me give you a little summary of the amazing posts just to make sure you didn’t miss anything. ūüėČ

This month was October, so naturally, it was about all things spooky and horror. I’ve got some films for you (both family-friendly and definitely not family-friendly) and I watched Buffy the Vampires Slayer for the first time ever:

As per usual we have the Top 5 Tuesday and Thursday Movie Pick posts, all with appropriate spooky themes as well!

And last but not least some of my favorite quotes to brighten your day:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 7 ‚Äď A Review

Hey guys!
This is it. We reached the 7th and final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Watching this show has been hell of a ride, so let’s see whether it got an ending worthy of the amazing lead!

The Plot:

This is it. Buffy and the gang have to make their final stand. It’s not just some vampire or a demon they have to face. This time its is the first, the original evil they have to go up against. It’s the entire world that is at stake!

The Rating:

Oh so many feels! Before I say anything else, I’m just going to warn you of the spoilers after the *read more* tag. We reached season seven, so it’s pretty much impossible to talk about it without giving away stuff concerning the previous seasons, and I have some details of this season we need to get into…

What I can say without spoiling anything is that the acting performances were outstanding. The cast we came to love over the past season was amazing as usual, as were some of the new additions we got. The set-design was great, even though some of the CGI effects were so obviously fake, it was a little cringy. I guess it’s partially due to the show simply being a couple of years old but you also have to bear in mind that it was a TV production and not a blockbuster movie. So, I would assume that means you have a lot less budget to work with.

Halloween/ TMP Television Edition: Horror

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
We’ve made it to the last Thursday of October and to the last Halloween TMP for this year. It’s all about horror TV shows today!

#1 Stranger Things

I was a bit late to the party with Stranger Things but it’s such a cool show! It definitely has horror elements and I can’t believe I never picked it before. Also, the new season is coming soon and I’m very excited about that!

#2 The Haunting of Hill House

This is such a good adaptation! I didn’t really like the book The Haunting of Hill House, but Netflix really nailed the horror vibe with the show!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 6 ‚Äď A Review

Hello folks! Another day, another Buffy review! We officially made it to the penultimate season. Let’s get right down to it and find out what season six has in store for us!

The Plot:

Buffy is dead. Where do we go from here? Who is going to save the world? Who is going to take care of Dawn? What will happen to the Scoobie gang? So many questions, let’s find some answers!

The Rating:

So much to talk about with season 6! There are many things I want to address, as usual spoilers will be below *read more*.

For now, let me just saw I was very impressed with the acting performances in this season. Sarah Michelle Gellar had been nothing short of badass before but this time it was not only her who delivered some stand-out scenes. Alyson Hannigan aka Willow really had some intense moments this season. Honestly, she would have deserved all the awards out there for what she did. And let’s not forget about Emma Caulfield aka Anya who is a crimially underrated actress! But let’s finally get to the nitty-gritty, shall we?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 5

Hey guys! Another day, another Buffy review.
We’ve already made it to season 5 – let’s see if the show can keep up it’s pacing and me intrigued!

The Plot:

Lots of things have changed and are about to change in Sunnydale. Do you remember Buffy’s sister?

The Rating:

EXCUSE ME. How well written was this season?! Admittely, we were off to a rocky start and I had my reserverations a the beginning, but damn, we have some episodes in season 5 that are nothing short of brilliant. I’m still feeling a little conflicted on the season as a whole but I am willing to forgive any of the imperfections due to some of the downright amazing episodes that easily balance everything out.

Unless you have seen seasons 1 to 4 pretty much everything from here on out will be a spoiler. Even if you have seen everything up to that point, I will be talking about some season 5 plot points in detail, so consider yourself warned!

Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 4 – A Review

Welcome back y’all!
We’ve made it to season 4 of Buffy. That means we are now past the halfway point! Let’s see how the show has been holding up thus far.

The Plot:

The highschool years are finally behind us. Against all odds Buffy made (and most of her friends) made it to college. But, as you probably expected, that isn’t exactly smooth sailing either. And it appears someone else is out to get some monsters…

The Rating:

Okay, so once more: this review will feature a lot of spoilers. There are so many things I want to discuss and unfortunately that won’t be able without giving away many big plot-twists of this season. So, if you haven’t seen it yet, you might want to skip the read-more button!

Let me just tell you that it was an intriguing season. By far not my favorite but the final episodes did make up for that!
